Stone Cold falsely advertised for Fully Loaded 2000



Who remembers this? I remember buying this PPV and being pissed. Austin didn't appear. I remember 'We want Stone Cold' chants throughout this PPV. I wonder why the WWF put him on that poster.

Re: Stone Cold falsely advertised for Fully Loaded 2000

If I had bought it or went to the show, I wouldn't have been pissed one bit just for the awesome main event match. Truly a classic, not to overlook the excellent LMS before it.

I can only assume that they expected Austin to be ready to return at this point but he needed another month or two off before wrestling again so they changed their decision but kept the poster for buyrates. (although that's a rip-off of fans but it's not like it's the only time they've done it)

Well not pissed at the show, in fact it could've been Rocks best ever match. But I think everyone watching was expecting a Backlash-style cameo.

Re: Stone Cold falsely advertised for Fully Loaded 2000

Yeah that was pretty random. Never knew the reason. They just put him on the cover, he was never involved in any of the build. There wasn't even a mention of any return or anything like that.

Re: Stone Cold falsely advertised for Fully Loaded 2000

Just off the top of my head was that the Rock vs Benoit? where Benoit looked to make the Rock tap but his hand was placed under the rope or something and Foley re-started the match? or was that a different PPV?

False advertisement if he didn't appear, my memory is slightly blurred

Eh, people being on posters doesn't mean anything. I do remember being pissed at no HHH during Vengeance 2001. They had videos and everything hyping him but he wasn't medically cleared in time .

Christ, a time where I actually WANTED to see HHH. The hell was wrong with me?

2 reasons

1) The people who come up with the poster designs are not privy to creative meetings, so they don't actually know who's going to appear.

2) These things are made so far in advance that unless they have something specific planed that they want on there, then they just put the flavour of the month on the cover (usually somebody who suits the theme.)

The only real PPV poster that I remember having much to do with the actual show is this one...

No, Shane attacked the referee with a chair then ref saw The Rock with the chair in his hand so he DQed him and per stipulation, he would lose the title if he got DQed. Foley then came out and restarted it. (that asshole! )

He did it again at Unforgiven which is the PPV you're thinking of. Benoit pinned Undertaker while Taker had his foot on the rope and ref missed it so he was champion for a second only for the match restart.

Yeah, they were a lot of these posters. Other that come to my mind was Kane on the Judgment Day 2007 poster or Rey Mysterio for GAB 2007

tbh I was more pissed at Austin not appearing at Survivor Series 1999 than at Fully Loaded

Forgot all about this PPV. I never really cared about Benoit, but he was a damn great heel in 2000 / 2001. Loved the feud with The Rock, and the feud that followed with Triple H. Especially when Benoit headbutted Stephanie and smiled.
