This. I think Austin/HHH was suppose to be the major title feud post 2 man power trip, but the injury happened.
True, but they probably would have never fought until WM 18. Even without the injury, I always thought the original plan was to have HHH win the Rumble and face a heel Austin, which was the actual plan until Austin refused to put him over, so we got HHH/Jericho instead.
Savage vs. Warrior @ WM 7 - ****1/4
Savage vs. Warrior @ SS92 - ***1/2
Their match at Wrestlemania was another class, I personally think, but the Summerslam match is still fun to watch by all means. It might just be how spectacular Wrestlemania is in general, but in terms of pure entertainment value their Summerslam match doesn't really stand up in comparison.
The Summerslam match is fun Cal. I just watched it a few days ago for the first time in like a decade. Not as good as WM but a solid match. Savage and Warrior had fantastic chemistry IMHO. I saw a house show back in the day on a Super Bowl Sunday and the main event was Savage/Warrior in a cage and it was great. Anyone who could get a decent match out of Warrior is amazing. I admit Im a Savage mark but these were some of Randy's better matches.

I'll watch it one day lol. Need to concentrate on matches from 2000-2009 for now though (and non WWF/E for the most part) . I don't want to leave it too late and have to watch millions of matches in a month to get a top 100 list together and be disappointed with it like with WCW.
Watched MITB 2011 the other day. Still love the event. SD MITB is great, Raw MITB isn't that good, but its a car crash type match that I don't want to turn away from lol. Plus lots of ladders keep breaking and people botch so it really IS like a car crash lol. Henry/Show is super fun. Orton/Christian is good, but one of their weaker matches (which says a lot about their series lol). Punk/Cena is still tremendous.
Watched The Rock & Edge vs. Eddie Guerrero & Chris Benoit from Smackdown in July 2002 earlier, from the Smackdown's Most Memorable Matches DVD that I picked up for a £1.
It's a really fun tag match and a great TV main event. Cole & Tazz are really good on commentary and the crowd is hot also. The ending of Rock (the Undisputed champ) tapping out clean to Benoit (the IC champ) was surprising too, as was Hogan attacking Lesnar after the match (Lesnar had walked down to watch Rock squirm in the Crossface). Probably give it ***1/4 - ***1/2.
