WWE was so great back then.

Having the higher power be VM was just too obvious though. Raw was still taped in those days and I remember Bischoff giving the reveal away on Nitro per/usual. I guess the WWE just didn't want to get away from the Austin/McMahon rivalry and that's why it was VM. Having it be somebody else may have disrupted that feud a bit more than they wanted since the feud was an incredible draw for them.

Interesting that the Undertaker claims that time was a low point for him. That guy hasn't had many low points as the Undertaker though. The stuff early with Hogan was great and then the mid late 90's with Yokozuna, Mankind, HBK, Kane etc.and the 2000's with the WM streak really growing etc. All good stuff. I thought his low point was the biker gimmick but I guess the dead man gimmick had gone a little stale at that time and we needed a break from it.
