Good storylines + good wrestling would be great, but that rarely happens at the same time. 2000 is the best example (and the greatest year in WWF history ). I genuinely do not think there was a single bad Raw or SD in 2000. Same for 2001. If something sucked on the show, you can be guaranteed that there would be a bunch of other stuff that didn't. These days its the other way around. On a 3 hour Raw we are lucky to get 1 or 2 good matches, followed by 5 or 6 shit matches and a bunch of god awful segments and promos.
Just got through watching the Jan 10th, 2000 Raw show and all of this is 100% true.

- Show opens with Rock demanding the return of Foley or else the entire roster will walk on Trips and Stephanie
- They rehire Mick and the title match is set for MSG at the Rumble
- Rock sets up Billy Gunn vs. Road Dogg and Triple H vs. X-Pac along with a massive main event in Rock/Foley/Acolytes vs. DX
- DX is at war with each other throughout the course of the night in their matches and in the back
- Main event DX walk out on HHH and leave him with Foley
- Trips and Foley end up having an awesome brawl, PEDIGREE THROUGH THE ANNOUNCE TABLE!!!!
- Foley rips his mask off and comes back fighting even though HHH wins the match
- Show ends with Trips looking he's seen a ghost as Foley stands tall in the ring despite everything he just did to him, foreshadowing the awesome SD promo and return of Cactus Jack

I haven't even touched the midcard yet. All of this in 1 fucking show. The gap in quality from back then and now is just ridiculous tbh.

Yeah, that was a great show. 97 and 98 they were just getting the ball rolling and by the time 2000 rolled around, Raw couldn't be touched.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I started reviewing 2000 Raw & SD. I should get back on that. Got up to May with SD and June with Raw (started doing Raw before I got SD, then started SD and tried to catch up lol). Even 3 minute matches that were only like 1/2* were so much fucking FUN.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

2000 is everything a wrestling show should be imo. Characters, storylines, clear divisions so you can watch people progress up the ranks, tag teams, factions, stables, heroes you wanted to see overcome the odds, villains you hated and wanted to see get killed, comedy, drama, action, flash, substance and sheer quality from to to bottom. Everybody mattered and the titles meant so much. It had everything and that's why it was so successful and such great entertaining television. I don't think it will ever be touched and if it is then we'll be in for a treat that much is certain.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

No surprise that THE GAME was the standout of the greatest year in pro wrestling history.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Trips having a year like 2000 and then Austin immediately equaling it in 2001 was ridiculous.

I doubt we'll ever see two years back-to-back like that again.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Trips 2000 > Austin 2001 based on personal preference alone. There isn't much separating them at all. Austin, while his heel turn is now considered to be a mistake by many, still made for quite the comedic heel. Those alliance skits with Vince and Angle get me all the time lol.
