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.
