I rarely hear anyone speak of the year 1999. We all know it was a horrible year for WCW...but was it for WWF? In WWF...The year 1999 consisted of..but not limited to...
1. Meat(Complete with a boner)
2. Chaz..a kid from Jersey who just wanted to have fun and beat his woman.
3. Big Boss Man feeding Al Snow his Dog Pepper, Boss Man dragging Show's dead Daddy through a Graveyard, The Kennel from Hell.
4. WWF Flopping big time by having the Higher Power be Vince McMahon..once again restarting Austin v.s McMahon. (Undertaker said in a interview once this was the lowest point of his Ministry phase, seeing as he was no longer leading his troops, plus it was just another way for the McMahons to have the glory.
5. Mae Young and Moolah Decide to wrestle again.
6. Jeff Jarrett becomes a misogynistic asshole.
7. The Good Housekeeping Match.
8. GTV...Starting off with Mark Henry taking a huge dump in the bathroom.
9. Mark Henry has sex with a transsexual.
10. P.M.S. Nuff Said.
11. Nicole Bass.
12. Vince McMahon...winner of the 1999 Royal Rumble.
13. The Kat...Womens Champion.
14. Howard Finkle as the NEW Ultimate Warrayah
15. Your 1999 King of the Ring winner....Billy Gunn.
I could list more..but my head hurts already. (Out of respect..I didn't list Owen Hart's death.) Thank god for the debut of Y2J. He actually helped even it out, plus HHH finally ascended to Main Event status.
Was 99 a horrible year?

Ratings-wise it was an absolute champion, but yeah, there's an awful lot of crap in there looking back at it now. I think there was a fair bit of coasting from the superior 1997-1998 in there and Russo-itis was at its absolute height (including over in WCW at the end of the year too).

It wasn't until The Hardy Boyz, Edge and Christian, and The Dudley Boyz started having their series of matches together that you coud tune in for Raw for something instead of just Stone Cold and The Rock.
I don't know if it deserves to be called a ''Wrestlecrappy year'' because it was full of memorable storylines and angles but I started watching the year again recently and was astounded at how bad some of it was. The WWF in 1998 is what happens when you've got a creative mind like Russo to talk to but not completely run everything. WWF in 1999 and WCW in 2000 are what happens when you let Russo off his leash.
