An odd choice this may seem but for me there was no better character in pro wrestling in 1999 than Vince McMahon and this match had his career on the line, if Austin lost he wouldn’t get another shot at the WWE title, so this was the first time I was emotionally involved in the outcome of a match. So this was billed as an End of an Era match as the McMahon v Austin rivalry was coming to an end once and for all.
So right off the ball this was built up brilliantly, McMahon and Austin had been rivals since 1997 so this was 2 years in the making, and with so much on the line this was viewed as a must see match! And for me it was I didn’t want to imagine a WWE without Vince, I was young I didn’t know he would be back in like 2 month.
For me this is my favourite match due to the fact I was just so into it and for me it was completely must see television. The reason it isn’t number 1 is because the other 2 are better quality matches.
