I didn't think this was a very good Wrestlemania. For a Wrestlemania event I would expect better matches. This PPV was just plain dumb and boring. I thought a lot of matches could have been better or scraped. This PPV deserves a C

Doesn't Quite Live Up To Billing, But Still Pretty Solid
zkonedog16 April 2019
The sixteenth WrestleMania is one that seems to have a lot of hype attached to it. The combination of it being a nice round number (2000), a big four-way finale, and the fearlessness (for better or for worse) of the WWE at the time likely all contribute to this perception. While WM 2000 isn't a bad event, by any means, I would also argue it isn't one of the great Manias either.

A few of my thoughts...

-The lack of even one singles matches hurts this card. I realize that the WWE is experimenting with many different formats at this time, but sometimes the traditional 1X1 match is better than anything off-the-wall or crazy. A good example of this is the Jericho/Benoit/Angle Three-Way match. I feel like any combination of those two would have been better than the three of them mucking around.

-The best match on the card, hands down, is the Three-Way Ladder match between the Dudleys, Hardys, and Christian/Edge. This is high-flying, absolutely insane professional wrestling at its very best. Not only were all these guys fearless, but it wasn't a "sloppy fearless" either (like Mick Foley would often lapse into). No, these teams were all incredibly talented and not afraid to take risks (that they almost always pulled off successfully).

-The tag match featuring Kane/Rikishi vs. Road Dogg/X-Pac is pretty entertaining/solid, if the traditional "random talents thrown together" type of structure. This is the type of match in which the talented guys who couldn't get a storyline developed before WrestleMania are just thrown together in hopes of the talent winning out over the "heat". In this case, it works well enough.

-The Fatal Four-Way finale, featuring a McMahon in every corner, is indeed an entertaining prospect. The Rock (Vince), Big Show (Shane), Foley (Linda), and Triple-H (Stephanie) put on a decent show, but the overall effect proves to be slightly lackluster in total. Not only is it difficult to follow the action a lot of the times, but the ending is disappointing in the way it features the McMahons over the actual star talent. In other words, the weeks of build-up to this match were far superior to the end result.

Considering that Steve Austin, the company's biggest star at the time, was recuperating from various injuries during this period, it is amazing that WWE was able to pull this show off as well as it did. I'll always argue it is more "hype" than "substance", but there is certainly talent present...no one is doubting that. That sets enough of a baseline bar for entertainment even if the overall product isn't in my top WM events.

Favorite Pay Per View Ever
jason-ri199411 August 2014
I use to always watch this on VHS as a little kid, constantly. Now that I thin about this PPV, it's good for memories of the Attitude Era. What was unique about this PPV was that there was no one-on-one singles matches. I enjoyed just about every single match.

D'lo Brown & Godfather vs Bossman & Buchanan This was a pretty good match plus a good performance from Ice-T. 3/5

Hardcore Battle Royal Great nonstop hardcore action! 5/5

Al Snow & Blackman vs Test & Albert Good filler match but not the best match on the show 2/5

Edge & Christian vs Hardy Boyz vs Dudley Boyz Personally, my favorite match in the whole PPV and these 6 Wrestlemania rookies did a great job putting on a fantastic Ladder match. 5/5

Terri vs The Kat Could've been better 1/5

Radiculz vs Chyna & Too Cool Great 6-person tag match. 4/5

Kurt Angle vs Chris Benoit vs Chris Jericho Yet another match with all Wrestlemania rookies and they put on a fantastic nonstop action match. 5/5

Rikishi & Kane vs Road Dogg & X-Pac Pretty easy going match, it was more entertaining than good 3/5

The Rock vs Mick Foley vs Triple H vs Big Show Almost a whole hour of amazing action and wrestling! 5/5

For what they had to work with, this event was amazing!
thomasranum22 May 2006
At the time of this event Stone Cold and the Undertaker were injured and yet with a thinned roster yet the WWF was able to produce an awesome wrestlemania. One of the things that made this wrestlemania so special is that there were no single matches but instead all special matches. While there were many matches that were at the most mediocre there were a handful of awesome matches that made up for those. These included:

1. 15-minute Battle Royal for the Hardcore Title-While it may not have been a great match this match was super entertaining. (8 out of 10)

2.)Three Way Ladder match for the WWF Tag Team Championship: The Dudley Boyz (Bubba Ray Dudley and D-Von Dudley) (c) vs. Edge and Christian (Edge and Christian) vs. The Hardy Boyz (Matt Hardy and Jeff Hardy)- It was the 3rd best match of the night and will always go down as one of the greatest matches of all time. (9 out of 10)

3.)Two-Fall Triple Threat Match for the WWF Intercontinental and WWF European Championships: Kurt Angle (c) vs. Chris Jericho vs. Chris Benoit. This match featuring 3 soon to be wrestlemania main even superstars was amazing. You could not have much of a better triple threat match. (10 out of 10)

4.Fatal Four Way Elimination Match for the WWF Championship: Triple H (w/Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley) (c) vs. The Rock (w/Vince McMahon) vs. Mick Foley (w/Linda McMahon) vs. The Big Show (w/Shane McMahon)-This match was by far the greatest match of the night. A very surprise ending. This is my favorite wrestlemania main event match behind the iron man match. (10 out of 10)

The rest of the matches were not amazing but they kept the show entertaining.

A Great WrestleMania!
the_kiss_army_4528 December 2005
Warning: Spoilers
People Wine all the time because they say that "Tradition was broken at WrestleMania 2000" So what! Tradition needs to be broken sometimes. And it didn't hurt much because it was like one of the only wrestlemanias where the title didn't change hands (not including wrestlemania 1). But Wrestlemania 2000 was a great wrestlemania with great matches. Too bad wrestling isn't much like it was then. Although I am still a die hard wrestling fan. The Main event although Kind of predictable , but it was good! Vince Mcmahon turning on The Rock to help his little girl , help her hubby retain the gold. Good stuff there, kind of started an era...and ended one.

Dudley Boyz11 January 2001
This was the best ladder match in wwf history.Even tho wrestling is fake this proves it's not.Jeff Hardy did a senton bomb off of a 20-25ft ladder on to Buh Buh Ray Dudley laying on a table outside of the ring,and Buh Buh Ray Dudley powerbombed Jeff Hardy on a table off of a commentery booth on to the mat.If you are a wrestling fan you'd love this tape.

Don't waste your time getting this!!!!
ngiordano28 September 2000
I think that this particular Wrestlemania was a waste of my time and money ordering it on PPV. The worst match was the main event. It wasn't setup well and the story line was horrible. Out of all the Wrestlemania's, I rate this as my least favorite. But of course, that's only "my" opinion.

Wrestlemania 2000
wrestlingsitewebmaster4 October 2005
Wrestlemania 2000 was quite a good PPV. It had the WM feel to it but some matches were just thrown together to pad the event out. The main event was disappointing, but it had a shock outcome.

Results from the PPV: - Big Bossman and Bull Buchanan defeated The Godfather and D'Lo Brown in a boring match.

  • Hardcore Holly won the Hardcore title in a Battle Royal which also consisted of Pete Gas, Rodney, Joey Abs, Crash Holly, The APA, Viscera, Funaki, Taka Michinoku, Tazz and The Headbangers. Actually Crash was originally going to retain the title but Holly won it by mistake when the time limit ran out! - Test and Albert downed Al Snow and Steve Blackman in a poor match.


  • Edge and Christian defeated The Dudley Boyz and The Hardy Boyz in a fantastic TLC match to win the WWF Tag Team titles.


  • (Ref Val Venis) Terri defeated The Kat.


  • Too Cool and Chyna defeated Eddie Guerrero, Dean Malenko and Perry Saturn.


  • Chris Benoit defeated Chris Jericho to win the Intercontinental Championship. Kurt Angle lost the belt.


  • Chris Jericho pinned Chris Benoit to win the European Championship. Overall this match was disappointing. Again Angle lost the belt.


  • Rikishi and Kane defeated Road Dogg and X-Pac.


  • Triple H defeated The Rock, Mick Foley and Big Show to retain the WWF Championship. This was a disappointing match, but Triple H was the only heel to retain the title at a WM, so the fans were shocked that Rock didn't win.


Overall Grade - B+

Hilarious
gramuel1261 October 2005
Wrestle Mania 2000 is without doubt one of the funniest things I have seen in my entire life. Wrestlers doing battle with cookie sheets, old ladies fighting, and a small Mexican guy dressed up as a piece of cheese(I am not making any of this up) are just a few of the shenanigans that went on. And let's not forget about the ladder fight. What concerns me the most are the people who take this sort of thing seriously as if the outcome of the who will win will determine whether or not the earth will still spin on its axis. So suffice to say it was enjoyable if not for the reasons of the people who put it on. Truly hilarious. If you are looking for a good laugh find someone with a copy and watch it.

Worst WrestleMania Ever!
pimpin4life23818 March 2004
Warning: Spoilers
Ok, I could cut it some slack but this is the worst wrestlemania i've ever seen. It might be because it couldnt compare to WrestleMania XV. *SPOILERS AHEAD* The main event was terrible but matter of fact to show you the main event was terrible lets go back to No Way Out (Which i think was better than WrestleMania) It was the Rock vs. The Big Show for who got a title shot at WrestleMania 2000. The Rock had it done and over with, as he had a Peoples Elbow but when he was crossing the ropes the one and only rich boy Shane McMahon planted him with a chair. He landed on top of the Big Show and Shane put Big Show on top of the Rock. End of story.Oh but wait there is more. The main event was still to come Cactus Jack vs. Triple H. This to me was better than WrestleMania 2000 the whole show!! He put Cactus through the ring which was sweet! Obviously, Triple H won. Now the match at WrestleMania 2000 was going to be Triple H vs. The Big Show for the WWF (Now WWE) Championship! As The Rock put it if this was the main event for WrestleMania then it was just gonna suck! Well that all changed it turned into Mick Foley vs. The Rock vs. Triple H vs. The Big Show. Sounds like a good match doesnt it? Well thats what i thought when i payed 50$ to watch it on PPV! All the other matches completely needed help, except MAYBE the euro-continental championship match which i think was better than the main event. Triple H won of course I had figured that out when the match started Big Show was dominating but was the first one out. Mick tried to do an elbow drop of the top of the ring onto the table surprisingly missing. Vince McMahon screwing The Rock out of the title was not that surprising. As they all hugged Triple H, Vince, and Princess Stephanie! I give it 0.5/10 for the euro-continental championship match which i actually liked a little. But the main event was just a regular match that RAW could produce.

My Fav Wrestlemania
steph_hhh8312 January 2003
This is my favorite Wrestlemania so far. I am attending Wres-19 this year. I loved this one though. A McMahon in every corner. Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley in Triple H's corner. Linda McMahon in Mick Foley's Corner. Shane McMahon in Big Show's Corner. and Vince McMahon in the Rocks corner. Vince turned his back on The Rock and help his little girl so that her husband Triple H could be the champion. 10/10. I loved Stephanie and Triple H together.

Al Snow and Steve Blackman: Anyone remember the Head Cheese Team? Well after there loss Snow and Blackman battered a Human Cheese. Made me hungry as well, bad match though. 3/10 Match 4: Tag Titles: Triangle Ladder Match: Edge and Christian def. The Dudley Boys and The Hardy Boyz: I didn't know at the time but I witnessed a piece of history in this match. I remember this match for Jeff Hardy's Swantan Bomb off a Ladder onto Bubba Ray Dudley. Match of the Night. 10/10 Match 5: Terri def. The Kat: Awful match these two don't even look good. Time to go and get some cheese and a snicker. 0/10 Match 6: Too Cool and Chyna def. Eddie Guerrero, Perry Saturn and Dean Malinko: See 5. 0/10 Match 7: Intercontental Title: Chris Benoit def. Chris Jericho and Kurt Angle: In 2000 Angle was the Euro and IC Champ until a certain muppet :cough Bob Backlund cough: made him defend both titles at Mania. The rules are the first match is for the IC Title as soon as the title is won we go to the Euro Title match. Good match all 3 wrestlers are great pure wrestlers. 9/10 Match 8: Euro Title: Chris Jericho def. Chris Benoit and Kurt Angle: I felt so sorry for Kurt he didn't even get pinned and he lost both titles. He was left crying in the ring. This match gets a 10 however because Jericho won and at the time I was a big Jerichaloic, not anymore but I was then. 10/10 Match 9: Kane & Rikish def. X-Pac and Road Dogg: As anyone who has read my WM19 review will now I am a big fan of the D-O-Double G. But I wanted Kane n Riksih to win this. Pete Rose got chokeslammed for the 3rd and final time. Match 10: Fatal Four Way for the WWF/E Title: Triple H def. The Rock, Big Show and Mick Foley. The Rock was about to win this until Vince who was in his corner hit him with a chair so his son-in-law could win the title. 8.5/10 Great event just some bad matches. Rent it if you can I enjoyed it.

Mediocore
RepoManRules24 May 2003
A very mediocore show. HHH winning really sucked because WrestleMania is supposed to be a "Make the fans go home happy" show.

Everything else was hit or miss Mildly recommended

the Hardy Boys match alone made the PPV worth it
movieman_kev31 August 2005
Warning: Spoilers
1st match: Godfather and D'lo Brown come out with Iced D singing a new Godfather song. They're going to be fighting against Big Boss Man and Bull Buchannan who ended up winning the match and chased the Godfather's hoes up the ramp. an OK match 7 out of 10. Stephanie Mcmahon and Triple H talk of the upcoming main match. The rules are giving to the participants of the next match. 2nd Match: Hardcore Battle Royal included Tazz, Viscera, The Mean street posse, Hardcore Holly, Kai en Tai, the Headbangers, The Acolytes, and the Hardcore Champion Crash Holly. there was a lot of belt changes during the 15 minute match as the participants fought in and out of the ring. Hardcore Holly ended up winning by hitting Crash with a container of Snickers 7/10. Cut to a snippet of WWF Axxess. Al Snow and Steve Blackman talk in the bathroom. 3rd match: Al Snow and Steve Blackman come out the the ring. Snow introduces Chester McCheezerton (a Latino midget in a cheese suit before starting their match with the tag team, TNA (Test and Albert accompanied by Trish Stratus). JR's headset conks out for a little bit. TNA win in a pretty poor match. Al snow and Steve Blackman start beating up the midget. 2/10. Kat and May Young talk backstage about the upcoming match. Kat is nude but because of strategically placed item you never see anything. Lame comedy. Micheal Cole interviews the Dudley Boys. 4th match: Christian and Edge Vs. The Hardy Boys Vs. the Dudley Boyz in a Triple-threat ladder match. Christian an Edge eventually win. Some amazing aerial moves, the addition of a few tables, and a VERY memorable Swanton Bomb made this one an insanely great match. 10/10. Mick Foley and Linda McMahon are interviewed by Kevin Kelley. 5th match: Kat Vs. Trish Stratuswith guest referee Val Venus. The less said about this match, the better. Women matches ALWAYS suck balls 0/10. Promo for Westlemania 21 at Housten, TX. 6th Match: The Radicals are beat by Too Cool, do you remember these two amazing teams? No? Yea I'd like to forget them too. They stink up the place. 0/10. the winner of a contest is revealed. Big Show and Shane talk.Clip of earlier that night on "Sunday night Heat". Kurt Angle then talks to the head of security. 7th & 8th matches Chris Jericho vs. Kurt Angle vs. Chris Benoit for the Intercontental Title and then right after the same wrestlers for the European belt. Benoit won the first and Jericho won the second. These were just alright. Both were 5/10. Vince McMahon is interviewed. Triple H and Stephanie talk again. 9th Match X-PAC & Road Dogg Vs. Rikishi and Kane who win. the stink face, and especially the Worm both stink. Pet Rose gets choke slammed by Kane once again and then stink faced by Rikishi. 3/10. The Rock is interviewed. 10th match and time for the main event which is a Fatal Four Way Elimination Match for the World Wrestling Federation Championship The Rock (with Vince) vs. Big Show (with Shane) vs. Mick Foley (with Linda) vs. Triple H (with Stephanie). The Rock won in a pretty good match 7/10 After the show there's a recap and post-match interviews on the DVD.

My Overall Grade B-

DVD Extras: Disc 1) 3 separate Commentaries by Kurt Angle, Chris Jericho, and Chris Benoit on their Triple-threat match; a 2 and a half minute Triangle ladder match buildup; 4 minute road to Wrestlemania promo; and Backstage axxess footage Disc 2) Select footage and interviews about the first 15 Westlemanias

Go up to any recent WWF fan and ask them about 2000 and most will remember those few months when the PPV's were amasing, it all started at the Royal Rumble in January continued for a 4 month period ending at Backlash which brought forward SCSA. I would sudgest anyone to get this PPV, but before you do buy or rent Royal Rumble 2000 and No Way Out 2000 because they do follow each other on in an incredable fashion.

Many see the WWF as a stupid program with no real story line and is over acted, I would say to those people 'rubbish', the WWF is as credable and believeable as Eastenders and Coronation Street, except in this case there are Table, Chairs and Ladders!
