Mr. McMahon Takes Center Stage
23 March 2019 | by zkonedogSee all my reviews

For many years, Vince McMahon was either behind the scenes (owner) or behind the mic (announcer) for the WWE. As 1998 turned into '99, however, he stepped out of the tuxedo and into the wrestling role itself. While this Royal Rumble isn't nearly one of the best, it is still very entertaining because it represents one of the greatest feuds in WWE history.

To me, there is no doubt that the angle between Mr. McMahon and Stone Cold Steve Austin is maybe the most exciting (or at very least interesting) in the history of the company. I mean, everyone's dream in life is to beat up and give the finger to the boss man, right?! That's the catharsis (the heart of the WWE experience) that plays out here, with Austin of course playing that role perfectly. When him and McMahon are doing their thing, there is an electricity in arenas that is almost unmatched.

Besides the Rumble itself, which is usually always entertaining, the other great match on this card is The Rock vs. Mankind. It says a lot about the WWE talent-wise that this can be the penultimate event. This could easily have been the finale and no one would have gone home disappointed.

The '99 Rumble also represents the debut (or at least close to it) of lead announcer Michael Cole. While at first I was skeptical, as Jim Ross had been so good, but Cole proves to be a great mic man and it is nice to have a new voice in the mix.

Overall, this card is very back-heavy, but the talents of Rock, Mankind, Austin, and McMahon truly do make it worthwhile. If this hadn't happened sometime earlier, WWE is clearly on top of the fading WCW at this point.
