“The Road to WrestleMania Begins”

Date: January 23rd 2000

Venue: Madison Square Gardens

City: New York City

Attendance: 19,231


Royal Rumble 2000 saw Cactus Jack and Triple H raise the bar incredibly in a Street Fight that defined The Game as a main eventer. A certain Brooklyn resident made his WWE debut; whilst Hardy’s flew into tables. An unwelcome Mae Young crashed a bikini contest. In the Royal Rumble match, Too Cool danced, before Rikishi eliminated his tag partners. Bob Backlund made a shocking return to Madison Square Gardens. Whilst The Rock eliminates The Big Show to win the right to headline Wrestlemania 2000 (or does he?)
