Played at halftime of the 1999 Super Bowl. Solid brawl - I can see people rejecting it though because they have comedy mixed in with the world title.

Hated it.  They way they filmed it with the first-person perspective was so absurd that i wanted to turn it off right there.  You can't even pretend to get into it when you can clearly see the cuts and know that these guys are making facial expressions for a camera man while the "opponent" is standing 10 feet away drinking coffee.  Horrible done.

Loved it also. Piggy-backed on the Super Bowl (without ever mentioning the game) Good brawl. Unique setting. The comedy fits their characters (taunting the other - you want your ass kicked?)

I remember loving it.  In fact, it was probably the match that got me to finally accept WWF as something I enjoyed. I really enjoyed both the Rock and Foley from the first time I saw them, though I thought "Mankind" was too goofy at first..  

 

I thought the comedy and weird camera work would turn me off, but I actually enjoyed the heck out of it, as I recall.

Loved it, the only thing I didn't like was the very end when they did the first person of Rocky getting pinned... but everything else was great, especially some of the lines Rock used- like where he threw salsa into Mankinds face, Mankind shrieks and Rock says "It's only mild you baby!"

I liked it, and even the first person camera angle when the Rock got pinned wasn't all that bad... I watched it at a party and everyone there liked it, even people that didn't watch the wrestling on a regular basis. I recall people saying it was like a good movie fight.

This is exactly what I hated about it. Movie fights look fake as all hell and so did this. True the whole business is fake as hell but thats not the point. The match just irked me and the ending was God awful

Didn't it get big ratings? Lots of non-wrestling fans saw it and that was the point.  I remember watching it at a restaurant SuperBowl party I went to.  They were sure to flip to it at halftime.

Everyone loved the Rock back then.
