Re: WrestleMania and Backlash 2000

The thing that strikes out most is that The Kat vs Terri was the only singles match on the entire card. Just why the hell did they do this? I'm not one for plugging the whole event with 1v1s, I like variety, but why was there so many damn tag matches? At least at Backlash T&A/Dudleys was a feud. I don't know what the fuck Boss Man & Buchanan vs D'Lo & Godfather was for.

A lot of people dislike the way the main event came about, but I prefer to moan about the shitty undercard matches.

Re: WrestleMania and Backlash 2000

Looking back on it now, the main event for WM 2000 should have been Triple H vs The Rock. The top face in the company vs the top heel in the company. Triple H owned the year 2000. He was heeling it up in an epic way. And The Rock was extremely over as a face. These two have never faced eachother at WM. This should have been the year. Both were at the top their game and in their prime.

Re: WrestleMania and Backlash 2000

I agree Wrestlemania 2000 was terrible. Really think that Triple H/The Rock should have main evented that show.

Re: WrestleMania and Backlash 2000

I really enjoyed WrestleMania 2000 when I went back and reviewed it earlier this year. I can remember not digging it too much at the time but in hindsight, I think it's very entertaining.

Re: WrestleMania and Backlash 2000

Wrestlemania 2000 without Backlash is rather weak

But combined, its a hell of a ride

The entire Royal Rumble to Judgement day 2000 run is just something else

Re: WrestleMania and Backlash 2000

The year 2000 had some of the best PPVs of the Attitude Era. In fact, 2000 might be the most entertaining year of the entire Attitude Era. Not only did it have alot of great matches, but the story-telling had hit it's stride by 2000 in a big way. And the crazy part is this is the year that Austin missed. Imagine if he was healthy that year? Anyway, 2000 was one of my favorite years in wrestling history, and this is with my favorite of all time (HBK) out of the picture, as a wrestler.

Re: WrestleMania and Backlash 2000

Wrestlemania 2000 sucked. Weak main event. If HHH was so great, why was he so over protected ?

I've been in the Danger Zone! He's got a Bicycle! Minus! Five! Stars! FAT ASSES! Mongo! Huh? Yappapi! WE COMING FOR YOU .....! Super Dragon! (CZW Airhorn) Oh shi- Jeff Harvey. How Much Does This Guy Weigh? Hahaha! Play! Wanna Play 21? FAKKEN!

Re: WrestleMania and Backlash 2000

Backlash finish should have been Wrestlemania finish. The problem was Vince Mcmahon's obsession with Austin, just like his obsession with Cena right now. Rock/HHH was on fire, they were drawing huge, having the greatest matches together, Austin was NEVER needed for that. But ofcourse Vince has to insert him into the top program, undermine The Rock's starpower and make the top heel look like a chump. That was some bullshit there.

Atleast they were smart enough to have HHH get up after the chair shots and take the pin clean at backlash. The finish would have much worse if HHH got directly pinned after the chair shots.

Re: WrestleMania and Backlash 2000

Mania 2000 was a one-match card, with the 3-way ladder match being the match that most fans still remember to this day. Strangely, the 3-way ladder match received very little hype in terms of overall time spent on television leading up to the event, yet it was easily the match that stole the show.

Mania 2000 was my first Mania I saw live on PPV, so it's special to me, but you can't argue that the card stunk, and with the exception of the finish in the Fatal Four Way most people wouldn't even remember the main event. Had Trips vs. Rock gone on last in a one-on-one battle? Well we'd all look at Mania 2000 a lot differently.

Re: WrestleMania and Backlash 2000

great card on paper, but something didn't click i liked the triangle Ladder match and main event, well the triple threat match with angle benoit and jericho was good, but it felt off
