Re: Boss Man hanging at WM15

I always had problems with this match, and my memory has added a few more;

- Who was the good guy in this match? I can't remember Ministry taker really being good, and the corperation were definitely the bad guys. How did they work it?

- One thing that always bugged me was that none of his friends came to help him from the corporation. Was there a reason for that? They just let it happen.

- Has anybody from around that time in interviews said how that gimmick ending came up?

This is on par with HHH being crushed or dropped in a car or whatever it was and then not being injured at all. It's just a bit silly.

Looked great, well not great but chillingly striking, but overall served no merit. A symbolic gesture? Just make him bleed and leave him lying in his blood.

Epic moment. Too bad WWE totally forgot about it. As well as Chris Benoit and high ratings.

I accept Hayley Williams rep.

Re: Boss Man hanging at WM15

Undertaker in 1999 was a strange year.

He was out of action at the end of 1998 thanks to Austin, but then returns literally a few weeks later under a new look, and the fans cheered for him instantly. The Ministry were originally faces (not sure if they were supposed to be but the fans dug it), and employed endless heel tactics by ganging up on the Bossman every other week or so (why him, I do not know).

Taker was saddled with a lot of shit at this time - the sacrifice angle with Mideon, the hanging, the embalming of Steve Austin, the Unholy Wedding (which actually made for good TV). I remember seeing the hanging incident and being quite frightened. I was a very naive 14 year old.

I don't think anything tops Ministry Taker. I thought it was his best look but I read that he didn't like being that satanic type. Just a shame he got injured really.

Undertaker was out of action because he was buried alive at the Rock Bottom PPV. Notice how everytime when he was buried alive he came back with a new look. Despite the positive reaction the stable was never a face stable. Undertaker and Paul Bearer were heels before he was buried alive and they worked together as heels since Judgment Day in October 98, Acolytes were heels when they were recruited by the Jackyl, Mabel also when Mr. McMahon brought him back to attack Mankind and Mideon was also a heel when he was part of Southern Justice.

They received positive reactions because the fans knew when the Ministry theme started they would get a great segment like from a horror movie. The Ministry of Darkness era is something we will never watch again in a north american mainstream promotion again, actually the whole Russo era in WWE was something we will never watch again because it was barely acceptable and you will never get anything like that again because the society has changed.

As for Big Boss Man returning very soon back, it was all in the end a masterplan with the Ministry and Corporation working together so that might be Corporation and Ministry fooling us all that a Ministry member killed a Corporation member

Re: Boss Man hanging at WM15

I always thought they should have booked Mankind vs. 'Taker in the Hell in a Cell @ WM 15.

That was already done in 1998 and it was an epic match. I think it would be hard to make an even better match two years later, when the fans still remember that epic Hell In A Cell match.

LLS, even JR didn't bother trying to come up with a good excuse.

Re: Boss Man hanging at WM15

It was heel vs. heel anyways, so already a bad idea. Match was boring because most didn't care who won, except for the Streak. If this match had been outside of Mania, no one would care at all. It was lazy booking and Taker got the scraps that year, no offense to Bossman. Not as bad as 2003, and it looks like he is getting the scraps this year too. How a legend like that gets left out of plans when his match is at least the 2nd biggest match of the year at WM every year is beyond me.
