Re: MONDAY NIGHT WARS CLUB: Monday January 6th 1997
I've watched Raw, certain spoiler-y bits ahead so you might want to skip this until after you've seen it.....
I can't tell out of Shawn and Sid who is suppose to be the face and the heel? If Lothario wasn't involved and Sid didn't end the show with such a heel act, I would honestly think Sid was the good guy due to the way Shawn was acting (stripping on the announce desk,) and the crowds reaction to the big man. I seem to remember Sid as being over a LOT as a heel, in early WCW too. Crowds just loved the guy. He had a great look I'll give him that, he was a tank.
Quite a few recaps in this too, not a lot nor over the top, but if I'm honest this makes me want to watch Shotgun Saturday night! Anyone know the story of Terri dropping her top? I would assume she had something covering her like, but I never knew that she did that. Crazy.
What I think I loved a lot about this era, if I remember correctly and this show proves so far, is that certain stars weren't suffering with overkill. I can't remember whether they were injured or not, but people like Stone Cold and Undertaker aren't even on the show, and guys like Stone cold, Undertaker, Bulldog, Triple H etc are talked about but more in a Look what's coming in the future way and I kind of like that. I feel like they do it right with an hours worth of a show, they don't try and feature them all at once.
A lot of dead weight in WWE here, but to be fair I didn't hate the Furnas/Lefon tag match considering who it was against. Crazy to think it was only a few months before Kane was due to begin being worked into the storyline, and here was the guy about to play one of perhaps the greatest gimmicks of all-time as a fake Diesel haha.
I wonder what it was like for King to be out there supporting Shawn and commentating with him when apparently they didnt really get on? It looked like when King first spoke HBK gave him a bit of a look, but that may have just been anything.
What was the deal with Brets white boots? Haha
