Raw is War (03.10.97)

WWF Raw is War
March 10, 1997
Worcester, MA
The Centrum


The current WWF champs were as follows:
World Champion: Psycho Sid (2/17/1997)
Intercontinental Champion: Rocky Maivia (2/13/1997)

European Champion: Davey Boy Smith (3/3/1997)
World Tag Team Champions: Owen Hart & Davey Boy Smith (9/22/1996)

Explosions are happening inside of a warehouse! Reflections of WWF superstars are seen on walls! People are fighting each other! IS THAT EVIL MARILYN MANSON MUSIC I HEAR? It must be the debut of RAW is WAR.

A tougher-looking show was just the thing the WWF needed at the time. We see pyro, we see the debut of the giant Titan Tron, and we see the steel rampway. All this change and yet we still have the same old red-white-blue colored ring. They may now have Attitude, but Vince is still totally 100% American. Those colors don’t run, ya know.
