Raw, March 13, 2000: The giant slayer

Controversy erupted over The Brahma Bull’s Royal Rumble triumph when camera angles showed The Rock’s feet may have potentially hit the ground before Big Show’s, and The World’s Largest Athlete cried foul on The People’s Champion. The unrest persisted for months until finally, a match between the two was made in New Jersey’s Continental Airlines Arena to settle the score, with a unique stipulation to boot: Should The Rock win, his WrestleMania title opportunity would be secure but, if the giant slayed The Great One, then The Brahma Bull would quit WWE. After a long, grueling battle in the swamps of Jersey (and despite the best efforts of guest referee Shane McMahon to rob Rock of the victory), The Great One toppled The World’s Largest Athlete and stamped his ticket to WrestleMania as the legend of The People’s Champion continues to grow.
