The Rock's debut match was also Yokozuna's last. The 1996 Survivor Series was pretty pathetic. The Undertaker/Mankind match wasn't that good and HBK got booed out of MSG. Pretty sad when the fans want Sid as WWE Champ.
The Rock had to have been the GOAT. Right, arguments can be made for Taker, Hogan, Austin, Yoko, or even HHH, but in terms of putting a**es in WWF shows, no one did it better than the Rock. I remember the first time (i got into wrestling in 2000, late by most standards) hearing Rock's intro...the place LIT up after "If you smell." I thought, "S***, this guy is nuts!"
That Jericho debut was great...had they announced Jericho's signing before? Even after they displayed "Jericho" on the Titantron, there wasn't really a huge response from the crowd. When he came out, they reacted, but they seemed confused at first.
