Tonight we take a look at the January 13th, 2000 episode of SmackDown. We are on the road to Royal Rumble 2000, and things are starting to heat up on this road to Madison Square Garden. Big Show is starting to tease a heel turn, and it makes sense why he was the moderator for Cody Rhodes’s weigh in a couple of years back in AEW, as both of them do not like The Rock. We also saw a major return of the one and only Cactus Jack, who will be facing Triple H for the WWF title at Royal Rumble. We actually see him transform from Mankind into Cactus Jack, and it really is a great segment. The main event for this show was Big Show and Rock against Triple H and X-Pac from DX. Overall, this is a solid show as we move towards Royal Rumble, often seen as one of the best WWF PPVs of all time, and really, it’s hard to argue that point. Even with the Mae Young prosthetic.
On to the Nightly.
