Wikipedia and it's chronological history of WWE events and matches is helping me with this.

So let's see...

Let's start at Survivor Series 1997. What is cited as the "earliest beginnings of the Attitude era"

November 9, 1997 Survivor Series - Possible matches with WWE '13 roster: (w) denotes "Winner"

* Kane (w) vs Mankind
* The Road Warriors and Ken Shamrock (w) (removing Amhed Johnson) vs The Rock, Farrooq and Godfather (aka Kama Mustafa) (removing Dlo Brown)
* Shawn Micheals (w?) vs Bret Hart (a.k.a The Montreal Screwjob) (WWF Title)

December, 1997 - D-Generation X: In Your House

* New Age Outlaws (w) vs L.O.D (Tag Team Title)
* Stone Cold Steve Austin (w) vs The Rock (IC Title)
* Ken Shamrock (w) vs Shawn Michaels (WWF Title)

* Undertaker (w) vs Kane
* Steve Austin (w) vs Shawn Micheals (w/ Triple H, removing Chyna from match) (WWF Title) (Mike Tyson enforcer, but he's pre-order DLC so not sure how would work)

April, 1998 - Unforgiven: In Your House

* Farrooq and Ken Shamrock (w) (remove Steve Blackman) vs The Rock and Mark Henry (remove Dlo Brown)
* New Age Outlaws (w) vs LOD (Tag Titles)
* Undertaker (w) vs Kane (Inferno Match)
* Dude Love (w) vs Steve Austin (Via DQ) (WWF Title)

May, 1998 - Over The Edge: In Your House (no, not that one, the controversial one was next year)

* Big Show (w) vs The Rock (#1 Contender)
* Triple H (w) vs Cactus Jack (Hell In A Cell)

April, 2000 - Wrestlemania 2000

*

........surprisingly........ none. You can't put on any of the matches in WM 2000 without having Dlo Brown, Bull Buchanan, The Dudley Boyz, (or the Hardyz), Chris Benoit, Kurt Angle, Rikishi or Linda McMahon.

They feature prominently in every single match on the card, so bizarrely, you cannot have Wrestlemania 2000 in this game, with this roster, at all.

Weird.

Well, you COULD try to have the main event which supposedly has "a McMahon in every corner", and leave out ONE corner, but then the match becomes a lie. You could leave out ALL the McMahons, but then, where's the gimmick of the match?

And with that.... I think the era pretty much rides off into being able to cover it with this roster, as well. So I think it would have to at least end before heading into Wrestlemania 2000.

Superb list Mike, well researched.

Interesting note about Wrestlemania 2000.

You can see some of the obvious ones amongst that list that will definitely get used in Attitude era mode in the game, but with such a lot of matches promised, there will some less obvious ones in there as well. There will almost certainly be matches from RAW and Smackdown on the list as well (such as Foley winning the belt).

Something that does occur to me though. Your list starts at the tale end of 1997, but the advert for attitude era seems to go back to 1995 (personally, I'd have said 1996 was perhaps the genesis of the very start of the Attitude era, but whatever). So I'd be interested to see how many more matches are added if you go back as far as Mania 11.

One thing I learned is that Ken Shamrock is a HELL of a lot more prominent in high-caliber matches from the time that I remembered him being, for some reason.

I noticed while compiling this that Shamrock keeps appearing again and again and again and again and again.

I can see why he's in this game, now.

Of course going by this list, D'lo Brown, Viscera, Too Cool, Hardcore Holly and Gangrel are also very notably missing from a lot of these Pay Per View matches as well. Even if they are supporting characters, so to speak, they appear a LOT, and I often had to cut them out from this list.

Same with Jeff Jarret, Owen Hart, Al Snow and Val Venis, but those, honestly as we know are the ones that stand no chance in hell of being in the game. (pun intended)

the Hardyz, while VERY prominent on Raw and Heat, aren't nearly as prominent on PPV's as I thought, and the Dudleyz, Tazz, Kurt Angle, and a few others that I originally thought would hurt the mode by not being included, now that I look, only became important near the very tail end of the era.

However, when Kurt Angle rose up to be a main eventer, the future playability in the game becomes almost zero. Angle almost takes over the WWF at this point, around WM 2000. Him and Benoit become so huge that the story mode almost HAS to stop dead in it's tracks around May of 2000.
