It was 1999 and people were smacktab in the middle of the Attitude Era of wrestling. On the very same day the Dreamcast launched, WWE launched it's Smackdown product, with a special on UPN. Like Smackdown did to the WWF / WWE world, the Dreamcast disrupted gaming's cliches and constants. Think of it, like the Nintendo Wii of the late 90's Early 2K era. The Dreamcast had one of the best launches in video game history.
