WWF Wrestlemania 2000 Review

WWF Wrestlemania 2000 Review

This is part 2 of my WWF Wrestlemania 2000 Review.

Part 1 is here:

Part 3 is here:

Mick Foley was really in shape here.
Foley said it was like a fairytale to him to be in the main event and he wanted to make the main event one people talk about for the next 10 years.

Cat Fight - The Kat vs Terri Runnels

"I've never seen a wrestler kiss a referee before." - JR
"She's trying to show her puppies, JR." - Lawler

Moolah pulled Kat out of the ring so Terri could win. This wasn't really a match and was by and large, stupid. The big story here was Mae Young making out with Val Venis. Mae Young hit a Bronco Buster on Moolah after and Kat stripped Terri. I'd like to mention at this time that recently, Terri Runnels broke up with New Jack. You'd think she would have ended up with someone rich who was into her.

Dean Malenko said they'd break the legs of Too Cool and Eddie Guerrero as talking about laying the latino heat on Chyna.

2 Cool said it was time to kick it.

2 Cool and Chyna vs The Radicalz - Eddie Guerrero, Saturn and Dean Malenko
Chyna's pants break mid-match.
Chyna won with a slepper into a drop. The match was pretty good but Chyna's pants broke at the worst time - the finish. Still, there was a ton of action, the crowd was hot and the storyline was fun. Chyna and 2 Cool were both pretty underrated, well I guess everyone in this match was pretty underrated. Good stuff here though with a great crowd. Rating:***

Between this shirt and Val Venis' "cocked" shirt, I don't think they made $20.
Big Show said he would unplug the most electrifying man in sports entertainment, retire Foley and make Triple H do a game over.

Bob Backlund apparently came out during Heat and revealed that he made Kurt Angle put both belts on the line. Angle wasn't happy:

Angle talked to Tommy about being the Euro-Continental Champion (IC title + European title) and asked for extra security tonight as the women and children will be all on him and he wants to celebrate in the crowd.

Triple Threat Match - 2/3 Falls - 1st Fall is for the Intercontinental title, 2nd fall is for the European Championship - Kurt Angle vs Chris Benoit vs Chris Jericho
Jericho said he couldn't guarantee victory but he would make sure his opponents would get a beating.

Chris Benoit wins the Intercontinental title with a diving headbutt
The 2nd fall for the European Title began right after.
"Is there a word for furious that starts with an I?" - King | "Irate." - JR | "Yes! He's irate!" - King
Chris Jericho wins the European title
Chris Benoit won the IC title with a top rope headbutt and Chris Jericho won the second fall and the European title with a lionsault. There was no third fall for some reason which was confusing since it was supposed to be a 2/3 falls match. That part was confusing but the match was good. Benoit hit lots of stiff chops and did most of the cool stuff here. The match was kind of short though for these three. It only went about 15 minutes or so without intros and could have used more time for nearfalls and stuff. The match felt like a piece of a story, but not the end of it. Rating:***1/2

Vince hinted at interfering by saying, "I guarantee, I'll get it right".
Triple H said he would show the world who the man is tonight and won't allow himself to be beaten.

X-Pac and Road Dogg vs Kane and Rikishi Phatu
Kane got the win with the tombstone. This was all about Rikishi hitting the stinkface in this short match. Once he did on Tori, Kane hit the tombstone and that was it.
2 Cool came down with The San Diego Chicken and got Rikishi up for a dance.
Kane chokeslammed Pete Rose after the match and Rikishi hit a stinkface on Pete Rose.

This concludes Part 2 of my WWF Wrestlemania 2000 Review. Sorry for putting this into three parts, but I don't want it to take forever to load for you guys.
