The Rock (February 15, 1999 - March 28, 1999)
In a humdrum match-up, Rock would prove victorious, with a big assist from The Big Show, making him a three time WWE Champion; an incredible feat for the then 26 year old year old.
As Corporate champion, The Rock electrified audiences with his excellent microphone and believable ring work. He was equally at home in straight wrestling bouts and super charged brawls.
The Federation title still had incredible value and Rock was emerging as a very credible champion and rival for Stone Cold Steve Austin as company figurehead.
The company's two biggest stars collided in the headliner of a woeful WrestleMania XV event and contested the finest match on the show. Stone Cold finally earned the victory with a Stone Cold Stunner.
Rock's reign was over but he had contributed heavily to that 'Mania card becoming the highest grossing in wrestling history with an incredible 800,000 pay per view orders.
