The theme building up to this Royal Rumble was that Steve Austin would have 'no chance in hell' of winning the match, due to Vince McMahon putting a multi-thousand dollar bounty on his head. The theme song for this PPV became the entrance music that Vince McMahon uses to this day. See more »
The 1999 Royal Rumble was billed as "No Chance in Hell," as Mr. McMahon claimed that Stone Cold Steve Austin had no chance in hell of winning the January spectacular and advancing to WrestleMania XV. Austin had won a spot in the Rumble by defeating Undertaker in a "Buried Alive" match at the "Rock Bottom" In Your House Pay-Per-View in December 1998. Knowing that the Rattlesnake was a definite threat to win the event, Mr. McMahon made him enter the bout at No. 1. The cocky owner then said that he himself would be entering the Rumble, and would do so at No. 30! Then, to turn the heat up even more, he placed a $100,000 bounty on Austin's head -- meaning that the superstar who eliminated the Rattlesnake would take home a cool hundred grand! But Commissioner Shawn Michaels had plans of his own. He forced Mr. McMahon to enter the Rumble at No. 2, meaning that Stone Cold could get his hands on WWE chairman! Austin dominated the bout in the early-going, until Mr. McMahon led him into an assault by the Corporate team! The Rattlesnake was taken away in an ambulance -- only to return about half an hour later! Stone Cold was a man on a mission, and the last two men in the Rumble match turned out to be Austin and Mr. McMahon! Stone Cold was in control, until The Rock made his way to ringside. The then-Corporate Champion distracted the Rattlesnake, allowing Mr. McMahon to dump Austin out of the ring! Mr. McMahon was the winner of the Royal Rumble! Also at the 1999 Royal Rumble, The Rock and Mankind brutalized each other in a brutal "I Quit" match for the WWE Championship. Rocky won the title from Mick after destroying his foe with 11 chair shots to the head! But Mick would regain the title just two days later, during "Halftime Heat!"
