The First Ladder Tag

How much of an impact did the Terry Invitational Tournament (T.I.T.) have on the WWF's personnel decisions in late 1999? They signed a bunch of high workrate talent after The Hardys and E&C stole the show at No Mercy, so it's hard to imagine it wasn't related.

Absolutely, the TIT was big.  Clearly though, there was no direction for the Hardy Boyz or E&C leading up to the TIT, and it wasn't until the show that the TIT was firm and round.  

OK, I've milked this one as much as I can this morning.
