Didn’t get to this for the official feedback, but wanted to share that WWE 2000 is a part of my “dark period” so I watched most of these pay-per-views for the first time during a chronological run through the WWE Network in 2014-15. My biggest takeaway from this period is that, when you watch the PPVs from this era with no time (or weekly TV) in between, the McMahons (Shane in particular) are on a different “side” of the main event picture pretty much every month. What a cluster…

heh. I remember Mania 2000 being a low point. A MCMAHON IN EVERY CORNER! (facepalm…)

A pointer is a breed of dog. The Lawler comment was relevant :wink:
