WWE Backlash 1999 Steve Austin The Rock

Ahead of WrestleMania Backlash, Chris King takes a stroll back to WWE Backlash 1999 as Stone Cold Steve Austin defends his WWE Championship against The Rock.

Let’s set the scene for a minute, you’ve got “The Texas Rattlesnake” and Corporate Rock going one-on-one at WrestleMania XV. Austin wins the championship and the McMahon family is livid. Stone Cold wants his Smoking Skull Championship belt back, and Vince and Shane McMahon are trying to keep it from him by hook or by crook.

Damn, things were different during the Attitude Era, The Rock threw Stone Cold over a bridge and held a funeral for his rival. The storytelling was captivating and exciting, and it kept you guessing what would happen next. Keep in mind this match was conclusively built around a championship belt, something that would never work in the current product.

It was a high-octane no disqualification match with Shane as the special guest referee for their latest encounter. Austin began the match running straight into the ring for a brawl which spilled out all over the arena.  I miss how exciting these two superstars were. Rock hit a vicious Rock Bottom through the Spanish announce table and then got on commentary to talk some smack.

The arrogant challenger took the camera to talk trash while Austin laid on the other announce table, and ate a Stunner through the table. Man, the WWE Universe was on fire throughout the entire match. I feel like both superstars can’t put on a bad match because they have such strong in-ring chemistry.

The finish of the match came when Austin had Rock set up for the three-count but Shane refused to count. Vince came down and struck Shane with the Smoking Skull belt. Austin hit another Stunner and decked the challenger with the belt for the victory. Vince then tossed his rival his precious Smoking Skull Championship.

Attitude of Aggression

The Attitude Of Aggression returns for Chapter 10 of The Big Four Project, a chronological analysis, review, and discussion about WWE’s Big Four PPVs/ Premium Live Events. In this chapter, the three amigos, Dave, PC Tunney, and DJ, reconvene to discuss two more huge events in pro wrestling history: Summer Slam ’91 and Survivor Series ’91. Summer Slam ’91 is generally regarded as one of the better Summer Slams in history, and one of the most face friendly PPVs ever. With three title changes, The Mountie going to an NYC jail for the night, and the marriage of Macho Man and Elizabeth, it is easy to see why it is such a beloved event in WWE history. But dark clouds were rapidly approaching. Here in Chapter 10, the guys delve very deeply, indeed, to look at all this and much more including the emergence of Bret “Hitman” Hart as a true force on the singles scene, the Legion of Doom making history, the backstage drama that led to the exit of The Ultimate Warrior from WWE (the first time), the steroid scandal that caused many to sour on Hulkamania, the reluctant reinstatement of the Macho Man to the active roster, the arrival of Ric Flair in the WWE, the Undertaker winning his first WWE Championship, and so much more. Join us here for another epic installment of The Big Four Project!

**NOTE: This Episode was recorded prior to the events of the WrestleMania XL Kickoff**
