Who cares if he wasn't there?

Nonsensical booking, terrible PPVs, too much brawling. Compare the buildup of Summerslam 1998 and then Summerslam 1999 and you'll understand why the year '99 isn't well liked.

Re: Best year of Attitude era?

1999 is the greatest TV year in wrestling history IMO, the crowds were on fire, Rock and Austin were on fire, WWF's popularity, ratings, buyrates, awesome storylines and memorable matches. 2000 was better in terms of wrestling, storylines were great too, the most successful year for any wrestling company ever, plenty of memorable programs, fresh matches and just a mega hot program with tremendous TV and PPV month after month. The Rock/Mankind/Austin/Vince/Shane/Show angle in 99 was one of the best programs of all time. This period in the start of 99 is probably my favorite time in wrestling history. So many great things happening all at once, business is huge, mainstream attention all over the product, wrestlers all over TV shows, amazing time. Same with 2000 if not more BTW because nobody in wrestling history had a better, bigger or more successful year than The Rock 2000, that's when the industry peaked forever.



Classic.

I get that Russo booking was the best by any means but I think 1999 was much more entertaining as a whole compared to 2000. Just my personal opinion.

Re: Best year of Attitude era?

1998 had the best TV, and 2000 had the best PPVs. Overall though, I'd go with 2000.

They didn't need Austin. There were times that I didn't notice him missing; that's how good it was. Nearly every ppv was good and you had a balance of both quality matches and entertainment.

Re: Best year of Attitude era?

For me it's 2001, I just loved it to be honest, as a kid growing up the whole InVasion angle and the possability of the WWF going out of business was a huge thing for me. Plus every week runins or changes/jumping ship was keeping me on the edge of my seat, not to mention some of the greatest weekly matches of all time. 2000 isn't far behind though.

Re: Best year of Attitude era?

2000 is the best wrestling year ever imo. It will take something very special to beat it.

1. Raw after WM 2000 - WM17 (most of 2000)
2. Raw after WM 14 - WM 15 (most of '98)

The rest are still great but just not as entertaining.

Maybe it had to do with Triple H and Stephanie dominating the show, I thought HHH/Chyna was the better duo myself.
