WrestleMania 13 (1997): Rocky Maivia defeats The Sultan for the WWF Intercontinental Championship

 

Under the ring name “Rocky Maivia,” Dwayne Johnson made his debut in the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) in the year 1996. With a victory against Hunter Hearst Helmsley in February of 1997, Rocky Maivia was able to win the World Wrestling Federation Intercontinental Championship. This victory came just a few short months after his first official encounter with the business.

During the subsequent month, Maivia made his debut at WrestleMania and successfully defended his championship against his real-life cousin, who was referred to as “The Sultan.” Rikishi would subsequently become more well-known for his matches.

At the time, fans frequently responded negatively to The Rock’s character, despite the fact that The Rock is now a deeply cherished figure among WWE fans. His blatant push from management early on in his career turned some fans against him, and after Maivia returned from injury in 1997, he shifted from being a face to a heel as a part of the “Nation of Domination,” so that he could capitalize on the mood of the fans.

 

WrestleMania XIV (1998): The Rock retains his WWF Intercontinental title vs. Ken Shamrock

 

The name “The Rock” was coined in the latter half of 1997, and at the Royal Rumble in 1998, The Rock defeated Ken Shamrock by disqualification. At WrestleMania, Shamrock was given the opportunity to compete again, but The Rock prevailed once more through the use of disqualification.

The Rock would go on to spend a significant portion of the remaining time of the year engaging in a feud with members of The Nation. By the time Survivor Series rolled around, where he won the World Wrestling Federation Championship for the very first time, The Rock had become a singles wrestler and was well on his way to becoming a superstar.

 

WrestleMania XV (1999): The Rock loses the WWF Championship to Steve Austin in his first main event

 

During the year 1999, we witnessed our very first WrestleMania match, which was between The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin.
With the assistance of the Rock, Vince McMahon was able to win the 1999 Royal Rumble and secure a berth in the main event of WrestleMania.

 

Austin was eliminated as the final competitor. After McMahon gave up his opportunity to compete against The Rock at WrestleMania, Shawn Michaels, who was serving as the commissioner at the time, announced that Austin, who had finished in second place, would be the recipient of the berth.

 

That resulted in a steel-cage contest between Austin and McMahon, in which Austin would lose his match with The Rock if McMahon was able to win (a match in which The Big Show made his debut by jumping out from under the ring during the match).

 

Stone Cold startled The Rock to win the championship, despite McMahon’s best efforts to interfere in the main event. Austin, on the other hand, emerged victorious during the main event.

 

 

WrestleMania 2000: The Rock loses a Fatal 4-Way WWF title match, Triple H retains title

On the night of the 2000 Royal Rumble, which was supposed to be the main event of WrestleMania 2000, The Rock defeated Triple H by eliminating The Big Show in the final round to win the match. However, the controversial climax resulted in a contest that was much more significant.
After the elimination of Big Show, there were many matches between Big Show and The Rock to determine who would be the main event at WrestleMania. Video replays revealed that The Rock’s feet truly hit the earth as he eliminated Big Show.
After everything was said and done, Big Show, The Rock, and Mankind were involved in a Fatal 4-Way match with Triple H. Triple H was able to retain his title with the assistance of Vince McMahon hitting The Rock with a chair.
