Hayes is a bit of a prick in the MNW ep. Its like he's brown nosing Bischoff all the time because he's actually in the room rather than shitting all over him like he probably would if he wasn't there
"The first Nitro aired on a day when Raw wasn't airing. That was a smart move to make Mr Bischoff sir!
Bischoff not there:
"They knew that Nitro couldn't complete with Raw at the time so they purposely aired the first episode on a date when Raw wasn't being shown, likely because they are cowards and didn't want to outright compete with the titan that is Monday Night Raw from the get go. They had to resort to stealing talent to make a buzz in order to try their best to gain extra viewers"
