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 (10.06.97)

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)
European Champion: Shawn Michaels (9/20/1997)
World Tag Team Champions: The Godwinns (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.

TIME TO GET RAW! Your hosts are Vince McMahon, Jim Ross, and Jerry Lawler. Read the rest of this entry

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.
