Best PPV’s to binge watch during the “Attitude Era” of Pro Wrestling on WWE Network

WWE

By: Jaso Ollie

With the Coronavirus having us cooped up in our homes with no sports to watch, I think this is the best time to login into your WWE network account and binge watch some of the best pro wrestling pay-per-views ever aired. During grade school, I was a huge WWF attitude era (1997 – 2002) fan growing up.   My dad had one of those illegal cable boxes so I watched just about every wrestling pay-per-view growing up. So I am going to give you my list of 5 pay per views you should watch on the WWE network. In no particular order let’s go through these….

WWF Summer Slam 1998 – This event is one of the best pay-per-views of the era. This took place in the world’s most famous arena- Madison Square Garden- and did not disappoint.  The Rock and Triple H put on an epic ladder match with Stone Cold and Undertaker had a battle for the ages.

The Card:

Too Much vs LOD 2000

Gangrel vs Dustin Runnels

The Disciples of Apocalypse vs Bradshaw and Vader

D’Lo Brown (c) vs Val Venis

The Oddities vs Kaientai

X-Pac vs Jeff Jarrett

Edge and Sable vs Jacqueline and Marc Mero

Ken Shamrock vs Owen Hart

The New Age Outlaws (Billy Gunn and Road Dogg) vs Mankind (c)

Triple H vs The Rock (Ladder match)

Stone Cold Steve Austin (c) vs The Undertaker

ECW Heat Wave 1998 – This is by far one of the most action-packed pay-per-views on the WWE network.

The Card:

The Hardcore Chair Swingin’ Freaks (Balls Mahoney and Axl Rotten) vs The F.B.I.

Justin Credible vs Jerry Lynn

Chris Candido vs Lance Storm

Masato Tanaka vs Mike Awesome

Rob Van Dam and Sabu vs Hayabusa and Jinsei Shinzaki

Taz (c) vs Bam Bam Bigelow

Tommy Dreamer, The Sandman, and Spike Dudley vs The Dudleys

WCW Spring Stampede 1999 – You can’t have a pro wrestling list without at least 1 WCW event. To me, this is the last great pay-per-view by WCW in the Attitude era of wrestling. The 4 corners match was one for the ages putting an underrated wrestling superstar over the top in the main event.

The Card:

Juventud Guerrera vs Blitzkrieg

Bam Bam Bigelow vs Hak

Scotty Riggs vs Mikey Whipwreck

Konnan vs Disco Inferno

Rey Misterio Jr. (c) vs Billy Kidman

Chris Benoit and Dean Malenko vs Raven and Perry Saturn

Scott Steiner vs Booker T

Goldberg vs Kevin Nash

Diamond Dallas Page vs Ric Flair (c), Hollywood Hogan and Sting

WWF Royal Rumble 2000 – We head back to Madison Square Garden in New York City for another instant classic. From top to bottom this was a phenomenal pay-per-view. In my eyes, one of the best Royal Rumbles the WWF ever produced. 

The Card:

Tazz vs Kurt Angle

The Hardy Boyz vs The Dudley Boyz

Chris Jericho (c) vs Chyna (c) and Hardcore Holly

The New Age Outlaws vs The Acolytes

Triple H (c) vs Cactus Jack

Royal Rumble Match

WWF WrestleMania X-Seven – This was by far one of my favorite WrestleMania’s to watch. The event to me put the cap on the Attitude era. The Rock and Stone Cold’s entrance alone in front of 67,000 plus fans at the Astrodome are worth the watch.   

The Card:

X-Factor vs Steve Blackman and Grand Master Sexay

Chris Jericho (c) vs William Regal

Tazz and The APA vs Right to Censor

Kane vs Raven (c) and Big Show

Eddie Guerrero vs Test (c)

Kurt Angle vs Chris Benoit

Chyna vs Ivory (c)

Shane McMahon vs Mr. McMahon

Edge and Christian vs The Dudley Boyz (c) and The Hardy Boyz

Gimmick Battle Royal

The Undertaker vs Triple H

Stone Cold Steve Austin vs The Rock (c)

 

Honorable Mention:

ECW One Night Stand – In 2005 ECW came back for a reunion show. A must watch for any old school ECW fan.

WCW Starrcade 1999 – This is a loaded card for WCW and I’d say one of the best PPVs from WCW in the late 1990s.

WWF King of the Ring 1998 – This was the event where Mankind was thrown off the top of the Hell in A Cell by the Undertaker in a classic WWF Match. Also closing out the PPV was Stone Cold vs Kane first blood match. 

WWF Survivor Series 1997 – A classic PPV dubbed as the Montreal screw job by Vince McMahon during the Main Event of Bret Hart vs HBK.

WWF WrestleMania 14 – This PPV was always one of my favorites because this event marked the beginning of Stone Cold Steve Austin becoming a Main Eventer in WWF.

ECW Anarchy Rulz 1999 – Another peak ECW PPV that is a must-watch.

Everyone have a great day we will all get through this. Please take care of yourself and each other. – BullyTheLine
