2000 was a crazy time in the wrestling world. Mike Awesome defected to WCW, however he was still the ECW World Champion. Facing legal action from Paul Heyman, Mike Awesome had to appear at an ECW event and defend the ECW Championship against Tazz, who was working for WWF at the time! This was the one and only time a WWF Superstar wrestled a WCW wrestler at an ECW show. Tazz, now ECW Champion, showed up on SmackDown! and challenged the WWF Champion Triple H to a match! Speaking of Triple H, we are shortly removed from the night that Chris Jericho beat Triple H for the WWF Championship. Triple H bullied Earl Hebner to reverse the decision and Triple H regained his WWF Title. The Rock will challenge Triple H coming up at WWF Backlash and Linda McMahon appointed Stone Cold Steve Austin to be in The Rock’s corner to help even the odds. Chris Jericho battles The Rock in a Lumberjack Match, where all the Lumberjacks were chosen by The McMahon-Helmsley Regime. Also, Big Show is “The Big Funkay”, Crash Holly is on his WWF Hardcore Championship 24/7 Rule reign, & Eddie Guerrero gets his GED!
