HOUR NUMBER ONE! Your hosts are Tony Schiavone, Mike Tenay, and Larry Zbyszko. Tony says this has already been a “draining day”. The WCW championship committee met today and Mike Tenay reports that Goldberg cannot defend the WCW world title between now and Starrcade when he meets Kevin Nash. Goldberg has demanded a battle with Bam Bam Bigelow, but it will be a non-title bout – for TONIGHT. Tony and Larry are PUMPED. By the way, there’s announced 31,110 people in the Astrodome tonight. Remember that for later. Read the rest of this entry

TONIGHT: Stone Cold Steve Austin teams up with Mankind to battle the Rock and the Undertaker. What will happen when these four superstars COLLIDE?

TIME TO GET RAW! Your hosts are Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler. In case you didn’t know, Jim Ross suffered his second Bell’s Palsy attack last night at Capital Carnage (and finished the show!). Michael Cole is your number one PBP man until Ross is able to return to call the WrestleMania XV main event. Not being a “live” broadcast, you’ll catch Jim Ross still sitting at the announce table whenever he appears within the eye of a camera even though the commentary would be completed in Stamford, CT. Essentially, there’s no cutting to Michael Cole or Jerry Lawler during this episode of RAW. Read the rest of this entry

WE’RE IN BLOODY OL’ ENGLAND! Your hosts are Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler. Unfortunately, this is the last we’ll hear from Jim Ross until WrestleMania XV due to a Bell’s Palsy attack. On the plus side though, at least this time he wasn’t fired. I mean, what company would fire a man due to an uncontrollable medical condition? Can you imagine? Read the rest of this entry

We have not really heard much out of Kaientai since TAKA Michinoku lost the WWF Light Heavyweight title to Christian back at Judgment Day: In Your House back in October. Now that Duane Gill from the JOB Squad has managed to capture the Light Heavyweight title away from Christian, now is the time for TAKA Michinoku and Kaientai to win back the gold. We see Yamaguchi-san cutting a short Japanese promo from a stairwell. Standing behind him are TAKA Michinoku and Sho Funaki with their arms crossed looking pissed while Dick Togo and Men’s Teioh stand behind *them* waving Japanese flags.

HOT ENOUGH? Your hosts are Kevin Kelly and Jim Cornette. Read the rest of this entry
