It was August of 1999 and a few months removed from The Rock and Mankind’s epic rivalry for the WWF Championship. Around the time, The Rock found himself being constantly attacked by the dominant tag team champions The Undertaker and The Big Show. Of all people to help him, he found his old foe Mankind step up to the plate.
