    A little less than 2 weeks before WM 18. I think most people know the gist of what was going on around that time. The NWO returned, but it swiftly didn't go the way I'm sure all of us wanted. Austin was originally set to face Hogan, but "creative differences" got in the way on both Austin and Hogan's side, so Austin fought Hall, and Rock fought Hogan. I guess it worked out for the best, cause Rock/Hogan got one of the all-time crowd reactions, and Austin/Hall was hilarious in itself. As far as this Hall/Rock match, it was a fun match with some fukkery, and it really just makes you wish they had the chance to have a legit one on one program. Pre-Brand Extension 2002 was a weird time in general. A ton of people on the roster, loaded with star power, but (of course) not everybody was utilized.

    I'm sorry but I enjoy this much more than dragonranas. I always liked how Rock would tell his opponents when to get up, move close to him, etc. but make it look like a natural body reaction. The little things man.

    How NWO vs Rock/Austin wasnt a big money feud is beyond me

    Although given what Pritchard said, I can understand why.

    Just went through how all the skits werent going according to plan and how he would booked it differently

    NWO coming out being humble, he wouldnt have done (Although I would argue that was part of the swerve)
    Felt tying a recovering alchoholic and dousing beer on him was a bad move (Hall reportedly got sick)
    Some gimmick props didnt work (like an umbrella)
    The truck to the ambulence was too over the top
    Hall was put in a bad position where a lot of people werent aware of him recovering from sobriety

    Bunch of stuff. Just seemed like it created a bad start
