Cactus Jack 2000

Recently I have been watching the RAW's & Smackdown's leading up to the Rumble 2000. As we know Foley changes from Mankind to Cactus Jack, to then face The Game at The Garden in the Street fight for the WWF Title. What I had forgotten, was how damn good this face of foley really was. The promo's from mick especially leading up to the match are some of the best you'll see with some classic moments along the way.

The Pre Match Promo gives me goosebumps, and i can almost recall all of it from when i was kid which tells you what kind of an impact it had on me. Then the Match itself is a 5 Star Classic! The atmosphere, JR, the blood, the violence, it had everything. To add to that it was in the Worlds most famous arena with perfect production/set etc.

Also what's important to note is that this was the Match that elevated Triple H to that next level. He gained a lot of respect from everyone after this i felt. As a result of it, he was taken seriously as a REAL Champion and a true Main Event Player from this point going forward IMO.

One of my all time favourite PPV's, and IMO the best match of 2000 along with the Ironman between Rock & HHH probably.


Just wanted to get people's thoughts on it? Where you would rank it as a whole inc Feud etc during the Attitude Era Period, and what it later led to at No Way Out.

Personally, this has now become my fave face of Foley, although I love mankind.

How about you, What's your favourite?

Re: Cactus Jack 2000

The match gets a lot of praise around here and rightfully so. It may just be the greatest No DQ match of all time. A five star classic for sure.

Re: Cactus Jack 2000

That street fight is fantastic. I don't know anyone that doesn't like it. I agree that Mick was a good face, he always knew how to work the crowd and basically say the right things.

Re: Cactus Jack 2000

It SHOULD have been Wrestlemania's main event. Fuck Triple H-Rock, THAT was the real feud.

Re: Cactus Jack 2000

Not just me then? Glad to hear people rate it as highly as I do.

The Gash in Hunter's leg that you see being treated to after the match is horrific!

Re: Cactus Jack 2000

Cactus Jack was my favorite, Mankind and Dude Love were good too. As for the street fight, It's a ***** match for me and definitely in the top 10 matches of Foley and Triple H.
