Throwback Thursday: The Shiningest Moment of the Mean Street Posse

The Mean Street Posse, Shane McMahon's childhood friends from the hard streets of Greenwich, CT, were a walking punchline. However, they were damn good at being the butt of the joke during the Attitude Era. However, their careers were not without glory. WrestleMania 2000, the infamous Hardcore Championship Battle Royale, saw two of the three members win the Championship for a grand total of a minute combined. Rodney pinned Funaki and was immediately turned upon by Joey Abs, who won the title shortly after before dropping it to Headbanger Thrasher. Where was Pete Gas during all this? Well, although he'd win the Hardcore Championship in his own right twice, he was playing the good soldier here and keeping the drones from descending on his buddies. Way to take one for the team, Pete!

This week's entry was inspired by @trilotto. I kinda feel bad since he mentioned Pete Gas specifically, but hey, you can only work with what you're given, eh?
