* April 13, 1998- On a live RAW, {{Vince McMahon}} snaps and challenges Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin to a main event match that night. The match never happens as it is interrupted by [[Wrestling/MickFoley Dude Love]]. However, the idea of a Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin versus {{Vince McMahon}} main event causes RAW to finally beat Nitro in the ratings after '''82 weeks'''. RAW with a 4.6 rating versus Nitro with a 4.2 rating.

* [[Wrestling/StacyCarter Stacy "The Kat" Carter]] briefly flashed the crowd at ''[[Wrestling/ArmageddonWrestling Armageddon 1999]]'' following an "[[GimmickMatches Evening Gown in a Pool]]" match, marking the first instance of intentional nudity on WWF programming.

A goof in the production room led to the wrong camera going out live.[[/note]]

* Steven Richards forms the PowerStable the 'Right To Censor' - consisting of Bull Buchanan, Val Venis, The Godfather (renamed 'The Goodfather') and Ivory. The group was a TakeThat to the Parents Television Council protesting the smuttiness and edgy content of the Attitude Era, and ironically helped phase out many of the things MoralGuardians were complaining about.

However, without a certain event, the Attitude Era may not have occurred. There was the The Clique. Kevin Nash and Scott Hall signed with WCW. A legendary event, known as the "MSG Incident" or "The Curtain Call" happened at their last scheduled WWF appearance. Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Kevin Nash and Scott Hall embraced in a group hug before Nash and Hall went to WCW. This was a MAJOR break in Kayfabe since the people involved were enemies at the time. Hall and Nash could not be punished since they were leaving the company. Michaels could not be punished since he was WWF Champion at the time. This left Triple H who was the only one who could be punished. Triple H was supposed to win the King of the Ring in 1996 but was punished for his involvement in the incident. Therefore, Stone Cold Steve Austin was made the winner at the event where he gave the infamous "Austin 3:16" speech.

* Royal Rumble 1998- During a Casket Match with The Undertaker, Shawn Michaels severely injures his back while falling on the casket. This would end Michaels in-ring career during the Attitude Era. The injury also cemented the inevitable loss to Austin amongst smarks who knew Michaels would lose because he was too crippled to go on.

Added DiffLines:

* Summerslam 1997- Wrestling/OwenHart botches a piledriver on Stone Cold Steve Austin, which causes Austin to suffer a broken neck. As a result, Austin goes from a well-rounded wrestler (on par with Bret Hart) to a brawling wrestler, forcing a shift of his wrestling style. This would create the "main event" style of wrestling that would dominate the WWF for years to come.

In the mid-[[TheNineties '90s]], [[Wrestling/{{WWE}} the World Wrestling Federation]] faced tough times. Its "New Generation" Era (the early-mid '90s) product couldn't compete with the products turned out by rival wrestling promotion [[Wrestling/{{WCW}} World Championship Wrestling]] and upstart independent promotion [[{{Wrestling/ECW}} Extreme Championship Wrestling]]. WCW's ultra-hot Wrestling/NewWorldOrder angle took the wrestling industry by storm and ECW's focus on brutal violence and edgy storylines captured an adult audience turned away by the WWF's product.
