When exactly did WWE become heavily scripted in terms of wrestler promos?

We all know in the attitude era wrestlers had much more freedom in terms of their characters but today its all too scripted with the wrestlers not having much freedom...

when did it all change?

Obviously it was scripted by 2002 because the Rock had to apologize to Nash backstage after he went off script and called him bitch on TV.

It's always been mostly scripted really, just there was less that had already been done & said round then
