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.

One of the worst main events in Wrestlemania history

I highly doubt that, The Rock vs Triple H was the overarching storyline for six months of 2000 and was part of a rivalry that dated back into 1998 linking various elements such as DX, NOD, the Corporation and the Corporate Ministry. It was every bit a main event, especially after HHH's couple of matches against Cactus Jack shot him into uber heel levels - in which The Rock was also feuding with HHH, playing a prominent part getting Mick Foley reinstated, decking HHH with a steel chair at the Rumble, winning the Rumble to get a shot at HHH etc.

For some reason though they'd always planned it to be a fatal four way, the early posters had Jericho on them. That tells you that it wasn't a hastily thrown together idea because they weren't confident of The Rock/HHH drawing.

Re: WrestleMania and Backlash 2000

Wrestlemania was disappointing but I loved Backlash, especially Stone Cold coming back to help Rock.

Why was it announced he was coming back before? Could have been EVEN better if it was a total surprise, although it was a great ending it was half expected.
