Re: Did Rock Screw Mankind?
The Austin/Owen heat is well documented, by many sources.
Austin said himself in an interview (several even) that he was hot at Owen because the dude never called to say sorry, or just see how he was feeling. Austin forced the issue and chose to never work with Owen again, not because he broke his neck in the ring, but because he never called.
Bret Hart has said that Owen never called Austin and that it bothered him, yet he could never get his younger brother to make the call, or even reach out to Austin after the fact.
Jim Ross once said in an interview that if there was one meeting he wish he pushed to arrange but never happened, it was Austin and Owen. Both Ross and Bret make it sound like Owen and Austin didn't even share a friendly "hello" in the lockeroom after the incident in 97.
As for the OP? In real life no Rock didn't screw Foley that night. They both got ahead of themselves in terms of the chair shots and then had to add a few more in to get to the spot in the entrance aisle. In terms of the storyline? Yes Rock screwed Mankind, as he had a "tape" played of Foley screaming "I Quit!" to win the match.
You know how pissed I am I finally had to remove my "Think WWE sucks, Where were you in 1995?" sig picture. God damn ratings decline.
