WWF: Raw is War
August 10, 1998

The current WWF champs are as follows:
WWF Champion: Steve Austin (6/29/1998)

Before we see the RAW intro, we catch up with Mankind pacing around backstage carrying a chair and talking to himself about knowing the truth and how he can’t handle it. He continues to pace up some stairs until we can no longer see or hear him. He’s a MESS.

They show a video package highlighting the Undertaker and Kane’s complicated relationship and how Mankind getting waffled with chairs and TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVERS on the floor are getting in the middle of it all. In case you missed Sunday Night Heat, Undertaker posed as Kane and assaulted Mankind, thus furthering the belief there’s collusion between the two Brothers of Destruction. We might find out just what the hell is going on tonight on RAW!
