Some people might complain for a lack of a video package or something, but at least they didn’t OVER-DO it like the WWF did by having his widow come on TV.

But enough about death and tragedy. NITRO GIRLS! Hey look, Chae’s boob is out.

WWF: Raw is War
October 6, 1997
Kansas City, MO
Kemper Arena

The current WWF champs were as follows:
World Champion: Bret Hart (8/3/1997)
Intercontinental Champion: Owen Hart (10/5/1997)

SIDE NOTE: All heel champions right now.

Vince McMahon is in the ring and announces that Brian Pillman tragically died yesterday. All the WWF superstars and referees are on the ramp with a picture of Pillman on the TitanTron. Oddly enough, Owen Hart is the first wrestler that gets a close-up shot. If you’ll notice, we are in the same building where Owen unfortunately descended from the ceiling and ultimately fell to his demise. Of course, Pillman was a member of the Hart Foundation, but you can see why that’s weird, right? Brian receives the ten-bell salute as everyone reflects on this great wrestler. But the show must go on.
