Question about 2000 Mazda 626
It started for a few seconds, then drags like the battery is low but I charged it. I checked all electrical connections, changed plugs, checked fuses and now I am not sure.
Check to see that all your timing marks are still in line at TDC No1 cylinder, compression stroke.. Sounds like the engine is trying to push against itself.

Check engine compression for evenness between cylinders. the timing belt may have jumped recheck alignment.

IT SOUNDS AS THOUGH EITHER THE BELT IS A TOOTH OUT, OR HAVE YOU MOVED THE DIZZY WHEN CHANGING THE ROTOR ARM? IF YOU KNOW SOMEONE WITH A TIMING LIGHT, THEN YOU CAN CHECK ALL THE TIMING WITHOUT STRIPPING IT AGAIN. BUT IF YOU CHECK THAT THE DIZZY IS TIGHT THEN IT IS A VERY GOOD CHANCE THAT THE BELT IS A TOOTH OUT

Since you have double checkedthe timing and checked the battery make sure you are getting a spark at the plugs and that you are getting fuel. Make sure all sensors are plugged in and are working. Check near the crankshaft (front) for a small sensor and be sure it is plugged in. This is because some vehicles have a crankshaft position sensor to regulate when the spark is delivered to the plugs.

SOURCE: timing belt/waterpump
usually a good time to change it is at about 100,000 miles. change it before it becomes a must or not ride(type of thing). if your water pump is run by your timing belt, then yes you should change the water pump when you do the timing belt. the tension from the new belt will sooner than later kill the bearing in the old water pump and it will cost you twice to fix it versus the one time fix. when you go in to the shop there should be no additional cost to replace the timing belt because it has to come off to replace the water pump.
