  • This was one of the better Royal Rumble PPVs that I've seen.

    9.5
    The highlight of Royal Rumble 1999 was the "I Quit" Match between The Rock and WWF Champion Mankind. It was a brutal match, and one that should have been included on Mick Foley's DVD. Mankind took a lot of nasty chair shots to the head. To add insult to injury, he never even said "I Quit". They played a pre-recorded tape of Mankind saying "I Quit". It was a damn shame. At least Mankind won the belt back a week later on Halftime Heat.



    The other big match was of course the Royal Rumble Match, which is always a big attraction. This year Vince McMahon entered himself into the Royal Rumble in an effort the take Stone Cold Steve Austin out of the title hunt. Austin and McMahon were #1 & #2 in the match. Vince lured Austin into the ladies room where the Corporation attacked him. Austin left in an ambulance, but later returned. It came down to Austin and McMahon in the end, when The Rock came out and distracted Austin allowing Vince to eliminate Austin and win the Royal Rumble.moreless
