The Perfect 10's - Cactus Jack vs. Triple H (Royal Rumble 2000)

By the time the year 2000 rolled around, WWE was missing its top draw with Stone Cold Steve Austin due to injury. A new top heel was needed, and thus Triple H was put on the on-ramp to wrestling superstardom while also becoming the definitive incarnation of his character as The Game. But he needed a match that would make people believe he was more than just Shawn Michael's buddy. Mick Foley, despite the massive wear and tear absorbed by his body throughout his career, stepped up as Cactus Jack to give Triple H the match he needed: a street fight at Madison Square Garden. Charlie breaks down this Perfect 10 from Royal Rumble 2000 that marked the moment that Triple H could confidently stand on his own and be regarded by the fans as one of the tops stars in the wrestling business.
