Because Austin needed Heel HHH for Two-man power trip later that year. Thats also the reason Austin let HHH go over clean but not without a sweet stunner post match and walk out the better man lol. Classic austin.

But yeah, thats basically the reason. There was even a observer report on this at the time.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Seeing as you guys are doing Top 5 matches in this thread, I am just curious what are Eddie Guerrero and Chris Jericho's best 5 matches of their career?

Basically. Except Shawn Michaels, I can't think of anybody from that generation.

Clique added his perspective, which is true.

The booking reason was, simply, WWE wanted to do the Hunter/Austin feud all over again during the summer, with Triple H as a face and Steve Austin as a heel. Triple H would be the "leader" of WWF/E, while Austin would lead the Alliance and the fact that Triple H had already beaten Austin before would work in Hunter's favor when the Power Trip would eventually implode.

The seeds had already been planted, with Austin retaining the WWE Title with the help of Triple H at Judgment Day 2001, while Hunter lost the IC Title due to a mistake by Austin. The next night during the infamous tag team match against Benoit/Jericho, Hunter's mistake cost their team the match and the psychology of Austin taking the fall was to advance the story line of Austin not being the "Stone Cold" of before. The scheduled matches for them at King of the Ring 2001 was Austin/Jericho and Hunter/Benoit in singles matches. Austin would retain the title thanks to Hunter, but Triple H would end up losing to Benoit due to Austin's interference. Both would eventually implode in the next PPV, with Triple H eventually turning face and wrestling Austin for the title at SummerSlam.

Of course, it never happened, so WWE went ahead with the Triple Threat match at King of the Ring. The entire Alliance program was in a mess because there was nobody big enough to wrestle Austin as the leader of WWE since WWE couldn't capture most of the genuine wCw stars. That left WWE with Rock and Austin only, and they didn't want to do Austin/Rock again so soon after 'Mania X-Seven.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

When we say "Triple H's generation" what are we talking about - the last 10 years? Because Undertaker has had a ton of big time quality and classic matches in that period too along with Michaels.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Undertaker's "Classic" Matches are against mostly Shawn and 3 with HHH so Razor king is right.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Eddie's matches with Rey at Halloween Havoc '97 and Smackdown '05 (I forget the date) would be in his top five. Against Lesnar at No Way Out '04 and JBL at Judgment Day '05 as well off the top of my head. Not sure about the last one.

For Jericho I'd have Fully Loaded '00 v HHH, Royal Rumble '01 v Benoit for sure. Probably The Bash '09 v Mysterio. Not sure what else. Maybe one of (maybe even both) the big Michaels matches (Mania 19 and No Mercy '08 ladder).

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Jericho vs Shawn at Mania 19 is average imo.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I thought it was fantastic but it's a been a while since I saw it. Certainly a top Jericho performance if not a top Jericho match. He was way better than Shawn in that match.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I loved Jericho/HBK at WM19, thought it was excellent. Two of my favorite performers in what I watched as a pretty near perfect performance. Great storytelling, great spots, a fantastic ending (I love the surprise rollup) and the aftermath with Jericho giving the low blow was perfect. I thought it was great. Up until a certain two HBK/Undertaker matches at Mania, it was my favorite Wrestlemania match.

Marking for: John Morrison, Randy Orton, CM Punk, Sheamus, Dolph Ziggler, Cody Rhodes and Jack Swagger.
