What Could Have Made The Attitude Era Even Better?

We've got a post listing what mistakes were made in the Attitude Era, now what do you think/wish could have made the AE even more successful?

E.g. wrestlers, storylines, gimmicks, direction during and after. This could be seen as the opposite of the mistakes thread however its more about what could have worked along side its success.

What could have made the AE better?

Good matches and good storylines. 98 and 99 was filled with so much utter shite its unbelievable. At least they got it right in 2000.

Agree to an extent. I think 99 onwards was a lot better than you give credit for the overall PPV's as the mid-card was 100x better than that of 98. Things I would have changed:

- McMahon Helmsley dragged on way too long, it should have been stopped after the first PPV

- The Corporate Ministry didn't last as long as it should have IMO. It made Mideon and Viscera more worthwhile than the rest of their careers tbh

Better wrestling. Especially at the mid-card. Until Y2J, Angle, and the Radicalz showed up, the mid-card matches were shit. There were such interesting characters like Godfather, Gangrel, New Age Outlaws, and Al Snow just to name a few. I just wish they could wrestle.

My Top Ten Favorite Wrestlers of All-Time
1. Stone Cold Steve Austin
2. The Rock
3. Undertaker
4. Kane
5. CM Punk
6. Shawn Michaels
7. Daniel Bryan
8. Goldberg
9. Triple H
10. Mick Foley

Those are my top ten and I really don't care who agrees or disagrees.
PS- I HATE SMARKS!

nothing, for whatever "mistakes" AE made it was for alot of us our childhood, so we would take the good and the bad gladly. now im not a mark who goes around yelling "well WWE just needs to have the AE again" id like to see aspects incorporated now. but i wouldn't change a thing first time around. its what made it special. you clap when its good and you laugh when its bad.

Better Wrestlemanias. 1999 and 2000 were such great years in wrestling but the Wrestlemanias for both years were less than par.

Shawn Michaels being able to wrestle. He was sidelined for a couple of years due to his back, right? It would have been awesome to see a Shawn Michaels and Rock feud.
