– The Rock posted a new “Throwback Thursday” blog on his Facebook page talking about his first WWF Championship win nearly 17 years ago. He beat Mankind in the finals of a Survivor Series tournament for the vacant championship back in November 15, 1998.
#TBT November 15, 1998. The night I became the youngest Heavyweight Champion in WWE history – helping usher in what would become the greatest era in pro-wrestling – #TheAttitudeEra.
What made this era so unique, was that it was just before the WWE became a publicly traded company and in many ways it was “The Wild Wild West” which inherently fostered a wilder, crazier and hungrier roster of superstars. It also attracted hard core rowdier crowds nightly which always made it fun for us. It was an iconic era in wrestling and I’ll be forever grateful to all “the boys” who I had the honor of dropping sweat and spilling blood with (back when we were allowed to bleed) all over the world.
Btw, the night I won this title in St. Louis, I celebrated the only way I was used to… straight to the Waffle House baby. #IfYouThinkImCrazyNow #YouShouldveSeenMeDuringTheAttitudeEra #WhenThereWereNoCameraPhones #YoungestWWEHeavyweightChamp#ThankYouBrothaMick #Grateful
