I watched Smackdown a couple of weeks ago and everyone seemed to be over.
Late 90s crowds were SO much different and wrestling was perceived SO much differently then. I just watched Goldberg's victory against Hogan on Nitro again and not even a Wrestlemania main event would get THAT sort of reaction from a crowd. It was a whole different universe and I think WWE and the lazy monopoly they've been playing for over a decade is to blame that there most likely won't be crowds like that anymore. Today, it's smarky nerds, kids and their parents and nothing seems to matter on a boring formulaic show of the same old shitty multi man tag team matches and even those were much more fun back then.

I remember before their match with the Outlaws, they cut a promo talking about "doing the J-O-B on the P-P-V" and yeah I also remmeber them smashing the boombox over the head of Road Dogg on the 10/12/98 Raw. It wasn't a JVC Kaboom Box as J.R pointed out a hundred times that night because "they don't break".
