Re: WrestleMania and Backlash 2000
It's quite simple, the WWE didn't feel that Rock vs HHH alone was Wrestlemania main event worthy at the time only year after the classic Rock/Austin feud, so they threw in all their eggs in one basket adding all the McMahons and Mick Foley, who was billed as retired and had one more chance to extract revenge on HHH and win the title. The outcome was fine and completely unpredictable. It marked the first time that a heel left Wrestlemania with the title which made it historic. They were probably trying to shock the world with the Mr McMahon heel turn but that came off kinda flat.
