The boxing example soneone brought up pretty much nails it.
I agree Mania 2000 should've been HHH vs Rock one on one aside from Austin & Taker not being there the thing that ruined it was HHH going over.
Rock not winning the title at Mania 2000 was a crime, but at least we got a classic moment at Backlash.
