Yeah, RAW was weak. A total mess, really. Amateur hour compared to Nitro.

So I was just watching Raw and amazingly I start to remember the whole fucking show. How crazy is that? I would have been about 13 or so when the episodes aired but as soon as I saw the stars in the opening match it came back to me, I think I just remembered the whole Sid/Lothario thing to be honest.

Anyway, one again like last week it's crazy to think that just a few months later Triple H was boosted up the ladder and was to team with Shawn Michaels in one of the greatest stables in the history of the business, no one would have thought lets be honest. 14 minute opener to Raw without one promo? also amazing how quickly that changed, WWE were really desperate at this point.

Damn The Rock was as green as fuck and it would only be the following year that he would become the WWE Champion. Although taking how fast they pushed him, you look back and you think it all pretty much makes sense.

All in all a poor Raw really, not better then what we have today that's for sure. It's funny because as you get towards the middle and end of 1997 it starts to turn into one of, if not my favourite ever year in wrestling. Going to 2 hours to compete was definitely the best thing they did. Michaels wasn't there, Sid didn't even compete, Bret didn't even compete, Austin didn't even compete and they wonder why the show wasn't winning any ratings. Who wants to see Crush in a main event!?

Looking forward to watching Nitro.

This was around the time when Sky Sports would totally and utterly fuck up their scheduling of Monday Night Raw. One week they'd show an up-to-date episode, then next week it'd be footage from their tour of Germany, then next week they'd be a week behind. Totally lost me and I had no idea what was going on.

Anyway, Jerry Lawler and Hunter were always pretty chummy at this stage. They were on the same team at Survivor Series and they had this strange affinity that not many seemed to pick up on. Wildman Marc Mero only seemed to get a big reaction due to Sable, always thought the guy was overrated. He was losing his babyface appeal around this time, and suffered a serious knee injury not long after this. Goldust was turning face at this stage and would feud with Hunter for a few months.

Always enjoyed Honky Tonk Man on commentary, he seemed to share the same strengths as his cousin, just without the cheesy jokes.

During that Sid promo, I wonder if there was some old guy in the stands with his mop and bucket thinking what the hell that crazy guy was doing on the floor shouting to himself. Typical Sid promo, at least he didn't fuck up.

Bulldog vs. Rocky Miavia was decent. Bulldog was in awesome form at this stage in his career, and was pretty over with the fans considering he was supposed to be a heel. It was like he and Owen would be booked as heels in standard matches, but were often seen as faces in other situations (feud with Austin, Vader, Mankind). Rocky was being pushed to the moon, and there was no way he was losing here.

Undertaker vs. Crush was a drab affair. Always loved that old Nation Of Domination entrance with PG-13 doing their rapping. Crush was dull as fuck though. The ending set up both matches (Faarooq/Ahmed and Taker/Vader) nicely for the Rumble.

While watching this episode and last week, you get the sense that there was a massive dark cloud just hanging over the WWF. The crowds are lifeless and attitudes were getting out of hand - I think they even realised that they were in the middle of a period which would make or break them.

Just watching Nitro now. @ Duggan almost saying 'WWF' in his promo.

On second viewing, just noticed he just said 'WCW' in a retarded way.

Haha. I'm sure I can remember Lex Luger saying WWF instead of WCW around the time the NWO debuted.
