There seem to be a lot of people who a) don't remember because they were too young, b) weren't watching wrestling at the time or c) weren't aware of wrestling websites at the time all replying, i.e. completely fucking pointless replies, so here I am to tell you what it as like.
YES, there were spoilers. Rajah could tell you on a Tuesday night what the Raw taping held for next week's show, and the news sites like 1wrestling, 4wrestling and tpww were full of the rumours of future cards, departures and arrivals, plenty of which came true. If you reading them, you knew Bret Hart was leaving the WWF prior to Survivor Series '97, for instance. You knew Jericho or Taz or Benoit and his boys or Raven were coming in. It wasn't much different to how it is now in that respect.
