I'm Back and So Is My Events Center and Survior Series was Just anmazing Austin's Return and What Triple H would become An Even Bigger Asshole Which I loved By The Way I was Grade 8 and Just things were going My way and Seeing Austin dismantle Triple H after The Match Was damn Ugly But I loved The Story and I Love were this would go Heading in 01 Can't wait for the Next Vault
Hm, I'm a year older than SaFazio. Anyway I remember having to watch this one scrambled as my cousin had ordered WrestleMania 15 and after a year and a half someone at whatever the 1999 equivalent of Comcast was, figured out that they never turned off the PPV signal and three days before the PPV my cousin called and said it was off. Overall I though this was a pretty good show. I loved the Radicals working as a team and not just a random grouping of 4 guys. Kane-Jericho was meh, it was kinda obvious there was a blow-off needed. Angle/Taker was a horrible match, continuing Undertaker's dubious streak for the year, but the ending is great as the really sold it as there would be some type of screwjob and the debut of Eric Angle is awesome. I remember being pissed watching the Raw where it was revealed it was Trips behind the Austin hit n' run but then realized it meant Triple H against Austin, rather than Rikishi-Austin and was okay with it. The main event here is a good energetic brawl, a lot like their match at No Mercy 99, and seeing what they did in the months to come a Sports Entertainment finish featuring Triple H's death (later upgraded to a two week vacation) made sense. Overall a show with some good matches, but nothing really standing out great or horrible. I'd say a solid B as we get toward the end of 2000. I'd love a reading of the 2000 WCW Mayhem results on the podcast as a comparison piece. I can't believe Jimmy Hart vs. Mancow (who is still somehow on the air in Chicago) didn't turn the tide in the dead Monday Night War,
Solid but forgettable show outside the main event angle. The main event angle is fine albeit a bit over the top. Great to see HHH as this type of heel and feuding with Austin. Rock/Rikishi is good probably Rikishi's best match so far. He settling in as a heel and got new music but need to change his wrestling gear still!!Speaking of which, Taker's trousers, less said the better. His match with Angle is again fun and I enjoyed the angle. Everything else is watchable but like I said it is forgettable which people floating about but usually happens just before we hit the new year for Royal Rumble. The company is still red hot,nearly everyone is over,was still fun time period just a bit disappointed considering it was a big 4 PPV.

The Radicalz were rushed back together to beat a watered down DX in one of the biggest talent mismatches ever. It was a shame to see Benoit's push derailed with this. Kane and Jericho was okay, considering the basis of the fued was over coffee. The Rock did an excellent job with Rikishi, despite the finish being as bad as the HHH v Booker T finish at WM 19.
The Fat Phenom phoned in another display against Kurt Angle, and did a lousy job of making the new champ credible. That said, the Eric Angle ending was fun.
The main event with HHH and Austin was a decent brawl with a really crappy finish. For the 2nd month running, Austin fought to a brawl, and for a big 4 PPV to end in a non-finish was an insult. It was also nice of HHH to sell a massive injury angle for a whole 8 days after the PPV.
I hated the conclusion to the "Who Hit Stone Cold" saga. It almost felt like they had multiple angles they wanted to run for Austin's return but couldn't decide which one to go with, so they just sorta combined them all into one confusing Rock-Rikishi-HHH-Forklift-Radicalz mess. A stupid ending to the angle, but a hurdle they had to force themselves over before they could move Austin forward.
People always rag on the Kane/Jericho feud as being over a cup of coffee, but it totally wasn't. No one even seems to remember Kane's "You think this is about coffee?" comment during a backstage interview during the build of this feud.
I really had it bad for Lita during this time, but even I found her match tonight hard to watch. Sloppy doesn't even begin to describe this mess.
Aside from the Undertaker's truly hideous pants, the most memorable thing about the WWF Championship match was Kurt Angle using his brother Eric to confuse the Deadman long enough to score a quick win.. Great sneaky heel antics that fit Kurt like a glove. Angle knew how to perfectly balance the line between goofy and deadly, and his stock had nowhere to go but up.
Finally, whoever played saxophone on Billy Gunn's new entrance theme was way, waaaaaaay too excited about Billy Gunn. Seriously, that dude was feelin' it.

Survivor Series arrives in Tampa as 2000 winds down.
Molly Holly makes her PPV Debut and adds another Diva to the Division. I liked her better with Blonde hair then what she would do it with it down the road.
The Radicalz reunite against pseudo DX in a decent Survivor Series Match. DX reuniting one more time 2 weeks before was pretty awesome.
European Title Match is ok but Regal just fit that Title and was good to have Hardcore Holly back.
Chris Jericho & Kane have a solid Match,its funny the Feud started over the coffee spill.
The Rock & Rikishi have a good Match and Rikishi goes over strong despite the loss.
Ivory & Lita have a decent Womens Title for what it was. Lita suffers a nasty gash as well.
I know some people don't like the WWF Title Match but I thought Undertaker did ok here. I thought Angle was losing here because I thought he was a transitional Champion. Eric Angle being used to help Kurt retain was a nice swerve
Edge & Christian teaming with RTC was odd but made sense against the Dudleyz & Hardyz since all 4 Teams were feuding still. Pretty good Survivor Series Match and the RTC gets some Wood.
Stone Cold Steve Austin & HHH have a fun & bloody brawl. Austin gets a measure of revenge on The Game but this Feud is just getting under way. Oh My God,HOLY SHIT!

This show sucked big time. The two survivor matches are both awful but I guess it was nice to see a majority of DX back together even though Road Doggs new buddy just doesn't fit in. Rock/Rikishi was solid but did anyone need to see a Rock/Rikishi match on PPV ever 13 years later and this whole angle still is stupid. Angle defends against Taker and well that sucks ass too. Taker looks like shit and what the fuck is up with them tights hes wearing. Austin and Hunter have a decent brawl but the end with the forklift is way too over the top even for Steve Austin and does anyone believe Hunter really took that fall I did when I was 7 when this show aired then again I didn't know any better but now it just looks really hocky. Overall a really bad show that has few good spots and way too much crap
1. Crash Holly & Molly Holly & Steve Blackman def Albert & Test & Trish Stratus *¼ 2. Chris Benoit & Dean Malenko & Eddie Guerrero & Perry Saturn defBilly Gunn & Chyna & K-Kwik & Road Dogg *½ 3. Kane def Chris Jericho *¾ 4 William Regal def Hardcore Holly ½* 5. The Rock def Rikishi *** 6. Ivoryv def Lita ¼* 7. Kurt Angle def The Undertaker **¾ 8. Bubba Ray Dudley & D-Von Dudley & Jeff Hardy & Matt Hardy def Bull Buchanan & Christian & Edge & The Goodfather **¾ 9. Steve Austin vs HHH ***¼
Not as bad a show as you would think, although the lack of traditional Survivor Series matches kind of hurt it in a few ways. Rock vs. the 'Kish was actually a pretty solid brawl with Rikishi looking pretty dominant over the Great one although Rock probably could've taken the loss here to make the thonged one look more dominant.
Kurt vs. the UnderBiker is a little better than the squash at Fully Loaded but not by much. Kurt's pulling off a Doink the Clown trick with his brother Eric was brilliant if not a bit 1993-ish. Not complaining though.
After finding out who ran him down at last year's Survivor Series...MY betrothed....MY hero....My bald headed champion..my one & only Stone Cold Steve Austin seeks revenge against the Game Triple H in his first real match since his return two months prior. It's not as violent as it could've been save for the car drop at the end. Austin would gain some measure of revenge against the "Big Nosed Bastard" but the Rattlesnake would not be finished yet..
Oh & Kane & Jericho feud over coffee.
A chickenfried steak sandwich is the Undisputed Champion?
