    If you ask Tatanka, he will tell you, that he was a main-eventer in WWF. I wonder if this one match is what he is talking about.

    Wow Raw dominated Nitro in the point spread this week with six matches and segments going in their favor. This is probably the best showing from WWE so far. They won that battle. However they still lost the war that week in the ratings portion.
