I didn't see it, but everything I've read said that it was a disappointing match that the crowd wasn't into at all. I can't say as I'm surprised, since they basically tore up Sabu's gimmick just to get to this point.
Simply put: The WWF grew up with me, someone who was a kid in the 80s and became an adult in the 90s, not with the kids of today. When we wanted cartoonish superheroes, we got those. When we got hormones, we got Sunny.
