WWF: Raw is War (09.22.97)

WWF: Raw is War
September 22, 1997
New York City
Madison Square Garden

The current WWF champs were as follows:
World Champion: Bret Hart (8/3/1997)
Intercontinental Champion: Vacant (9/8/1997)
European Champion: Shawn Michaels (9/20/1997)
World Tag Team Champions: The Headbangers (9/7/1997)

It was either recap this or recap Battleground. Although I will recap that show too, this wasn’t really a very difficult choice to make.

Fancy video package highlighting the historical importance of Madison Square Garden to the WWF. It would have been amazing back in 1997 with no YouTube or WWE Network, but now it’s just another video.

TIME TO GET RAW! Your hosts are Vince McMahon, Jim Ross, and Jerry Lawler.
