Cactus Jack vs. The Rock at Royal Rumble 2000

Foley said in his first book that he proposed to vince to have him turn on the rock and end the rock n sock connection to feud against the rock due to the real life grudge mick had against Dwayne at that time for not checking up on him after their I quit match at RR 99.
Rock found out from vince what mick had proposed and the reason behind it, and was shocked. He went and apologised to mick and they ironed things out. The program didnt happen and instead it was triple h mick feuded with.

Would you have preferred to see this feud instead of hhh?
Do you think it could have been better than hhh vs foley - considering this was going to be based on real life heat; something which would have been mentioned in the promo where mick explains why he betrayed rock. Very compelling line between reality and fiction here. Of course the promo would have been legendary too.

Thoughts?

Nope wouldn't have changed it because then we wouldn't have seen Foley/HHH which is one of my favourite matches of all time

The feud also helped get HHH over as a Mega heel, just like he helped Rock in 1999.

Re: Cactus Jack vs The Rock at rumble 2000

I'm glad it never happened. Foley said he was really going to retire at the end of 1999 but was offered one last run as Cactus Jack for the world title, and there was nobody in a better position to end his career than Triple H, who was the biggest heel in the company at the time.

Also, there was no way Foley or Rock was turning heel either, they were just too popular.

I might be wrong but isnt there footage in Beyond the Mat suggesting that is completely untrue?

I doubt they'd still have beef over something that happened 11 months earlier either.

Wouldn't have changed a thing. HHH/Foley was an awesome feud.
