I just watched The Epic Journey of Rock DVD followed by Stone Cold Steve Austin Bottom Line and i could not believe how emotional it was. That was the most exciting rivalry i have personally witnessed and both of those guys gave their all to the business.
People that do not know wrestling will say that wrestling is fake and all that crap. All they need to do is watch one of these WWE DVD's to see that is not true.
Sure what you see on tv is staged but there is nothing fake about it. The hard work and sweat and injuries. All the travelling and sacrifice. Most casual fabs do not understand the business and politics of it. They do not realize how much of a dog fight it really is and i do not think any two superstars show this more than The Rock and Stone Cold.
I cannot personally think of any rivalry i liked better.
