I can't wait to see The Great one as WWE champion again. I don't think there's anyway in hell Vince passes on the chance to have the WWE title on all those Red Carpets and all those talk shows. So much mainstream coverage on the title and we know how much Vince cares about WWE getting as much mainstream coverage as possible.

14 Years ago today, in one of the best PPVs of all time and IMO, the best booked pro wrestling event in history. The Corporate Champion was born and The Rock began his inspiring journey to become The Greatest of All Time, a pop culture icon and one of the biggest action Hollywood mega stars in the world, while becoming WWF Champion for the first time. Time flies.





I will never forget the "Deadly Games" theme for this show. Nostalgic.

Survivior Series '98 was a bad PPV.

Bad from a wrestling standpoint but very entertaining and booked well. And I take good booking and good writing over a few good wrestling matches.

In a perfect world we should have both of course. And sometimes we get it, Canadian Stampede, Mania 17 and Summerslam 02 to name a few.

The main event had a nice twist but there wasn't really anything else memorable about the PPV.

Snake thinks it was bad. So it must be good.

It was great in every aspect, you got a lot of big star power combinations along with a great main event and a brilliant storyline progressing throughout the entire PPV. Rock/Mankind, Rock/Shamrock, Austin/Mankind, Taker/Kane, Rock/Taker etc. Which resulted in the perfect payoff. You can't ask for more and this IMO, is the Shakespeare of wrestling. Russo also declared this program as his best work and the most enjoyable period for him as a TV writer.

I don't want to deny that the PPV lacked starpower or a story. The story leading up the the PPV was actually pretty good and the development during the PPV + that heel turn twist was top notch but, come on, you have to admit that the wrestling aspect of the PPV was just total trash.

The idea of Rock beating Cena again isn't out the question IMO, it would obviously lead to a 3rd and finale which Cena would win (Heel turn or Heel from the off) similar to how Rock/Austin series panned out.

It was a 14 matches card on a 3 hour PPV. So knowing that you can't really expect a 20 minute classic in every match, they delivered it big time with the Rock/Foley main event. Other than that they worked the tournament concept perfectly and had some good matches all over the card(Rock/Shamrock, Austin/Mankind and Rock/Taker for example), it's just that the story was so well done and a crucial part of the execution which is why it overshadowed everything. I watched this PPV a few months ago and the flow of this show is one of a kind.
