Filled with action packed matches from start to finish. Great to see Chyna finally participating one on one with the men. Championship match between the Big Show and Big Boss Man was Great. I just wish they would get rid of all of the soap opera c**p and wrestle. Am I supposed to believe that Vince McMahon could really last in the ring with Triple H?

The Best of 1999. This is the PPV where the McMahon-Helmsley Era started. Vince McMahon VS Triple H. Stephanie turned on her dad to help her future husband. She was no longer daddys girl for a while. I give this ppv 10/10. And it all went down the drain for vince mcmahon here.

Haven't done one of these PPV summaries in a while. Survivor Series 1999 was, in many ways, the end of an era. It was the PPV where Austin was written out, supposedly hit by a car so he could take time off for long needed neck surgery. Filling in the void at the top of the card was freshly crowned WWE Champion the Big Show, though he was not the main focus of this PPV. In the couple of months leading up to this, McMahon had allied himself with Austin, and become a fan favourite as a result. When evil heel Triple H interrupted Stephanie's wedding, revealing that he had drugged and married Stephanie at a Vegas wedding chapel, and then consummated the marriage several times (because date rape jokes were quite funny in 1999....), Vince was understandably incensed, and so challenged Triple H to a street fight. If Vince wins, the Triple H/ Stephanie marriage is annulled. If Triple H wins he stays married to the boss's daughter and gets a WWF Championship match.
There's a lot of undercard matches to get through first and some other shenanigans, so without further ado, the night began with a bit of a cluster as 8 tag teams: th APA, The Headbangers, The Hardyz, the Dudleyz, The Mean Street Posse, Too Cool, Edge and Christian and Mark Henry and the Godfather met in a battle royal for a shot at the WWE Tag Team Championship at the Royal Rumble. Without getting into too much detail, it comes down to Jeff Hardy and the APA's Faarooq. The ref is distracted during Faarooq's elimination, so Faarooq is able to jump back into the ring and eliminate an unimpressed Jeff. Too many people in the ring and too much happening to really get into this one. In spite of the finish, the 1997 Royal Rumble it wasn't.
Next up we had Kurt Angle, then undefeated, continuing his streak with a win over Steve Blackman in an unremarkable match. Maybe I was being a little harsh on that last match calling it unremarkable, as the next match featured a 4 corners evening gown match won by the Kat over Ivory, Barbara Bush (if you'd forgotten about her short lived WWE career, you're not alone) and Jacqueline. the object is to strip your opponents down to their underwear.
Next up we saw the Holly Cousins (the late Crash Holly and Hardcore Holly) defeating Viscera and Rikishi. You can probably guess the quality of that one. Next up the British Bulldog defended his European Championship belt against Val Venis and D Lo Brown. Venis pinned the Bulldog after a Money Shot (remember that finisher?) to win a match I wasn't particularly into.
The next match, which again isn't great was one they'd at least built up, as former tag team partners and friend Kane and X-Pac met in a steel cage match. The New Age Outlaws are able to get some weapons to X-Pac which he uses to keep Kane grounded for a lot of the fight. Kane's girlfriend Tori interferes, getting an X-Factor for her troubles, only for Kane to finish X-Pac off with a tombstone and then tend to Tori. We again saw a woman finish on her back in the next match as Chris Jericho defeated Chyna to win her Intercontinental Championship. Chyna had won the championship at Unforgiven, basically to humiliate Jeff Jarrett who was leaving the company. She'd get another run with it as part of a storyline with Eddie Guerrero.
Next up we had the New Age Outlaws retain the tag team titles after they lost by disqualification to The Rock and Sock Connection. This match happened more to advance a storyline whereby Mankind is betrayed by his former tag partner Al Snow. Snow brought about the DQ by interfering with a pin attempt by the Rock, and then got a people's elbow.
Next up we have the WWF Championship match which sees the Big Show retain the title in a short, bad, match against the Big Boss Man. Boss Man had been taunting Big Show about the ailing health of his father for several weeks, but this is still a weak championship match-up.
Finally brings us to the main event, which is actually not a bad match. They use the military props near ringside as well as the street fight stipulation to good effect. Vince is aided by Mankind and looks like pulling out the win when Stephanie comes out and stops Vince from decking Triple H with a sledge hammer. Trips capitalizes on the distraction and wins the match, only to turn around and start canoodling with Stephanie?! The Million Dollar Princess was in on it all along! The following night Vince and Shane walk out and Triple H and Stephanie were running the company. The McMahon-Helmsley era had begun!
This isn't really a great PPV. There's no outstanding matches, though the main event is memorable. It did a good job of setting up the year ahead, with Triple H in the ascendancy, but the Rock, Mankind and Big Show there as potentially serious foils. There would be life after Stone Cold after all.
