WCW Nitro goes head to head with WWF Raw in another Monday Night television ratings battle! The date is 4.29.96, the WWF have been leading the way in the ratings recently as WCW hasn’t been building to anything significant on pay per view.
This week, Nitro is taped. The WCW show also broadcasted 1 hour earlier than normal due to a NBA game airing on TNT. Eric Bishcoff and company have a big surprise in store this week though and it all goes down in the main event, Ric Flair vs The Giant for the WCW Heavyweight Championship.
WWF Raw is live this week on the USA Network, it’s the night after In Your House: Good Friends, Better Enemies, and Vince McMahon is already looking ahead to the next pay per view. Shawn Michaels begins his rivalry with The British Bulldog on this episode of Raw, a rivalry that also includes Diana Smith. The Ultimate Warrior also has his debut WWF Raw match this week.
00:00 - Good Friends, Better Enemies Results
03:45 - Harlem Heat vs Sting & Lex Luger
06:16 - Mankind in action
09:25 - Fire & Ice on Nitro
11:13 - Steve Austin vs Scott Taylor
11:24 - Camp Cornette / HBK / Ric Flair promos

    Uh, Cornette, you're usually one of the best talkers in the business, but if Shawn had "deflowered" Diana then her marriage with the Bulldog was going really poorly. If the WWF was smart they would have put the New Rockers against the Bodydonis. At least the workrate would have been good.

    One of the first marque matchups I recall ever seeing on WCW Nitro. It's been way too long since I've seen that episode (1996 is when I was 11 years old, so there goes to show you.) But I greatly recall when "The Giant" chokeslammed "Lex Luger" & that's when I continued to watch Nitro more-so than "Raw" for the next year & a half until '98 when WWF hit it's high-mark.

    I just wanted to let you know something. I only started watching these maybe last week and I am almost caught up. My cat just passed away, I had him more than 17 years and this has helped take my mind of things. Either way you do such a detailed and great job re-living all these memories. There are some good podcasts on wrestling out there, but you are easily the king of ALfirst and this format. Great work.

    REQUEST: The Rock in 2005. I read the WWE let his contract run out without attempting to re-sign him causing tension and leading to Rocky being away for longer than expected. Can you address that please, thanks.

    What gets me is that WWF knows what WCW offers & their matches etc as it was pre-recorded. Why on earth do they not change their programme enough knowing this. On both when one is live & other isn't???

    WWF then not saying results of WWC WRASSLINN shows how they were miles above the petty Eric Bischoff. WCW got buried in the end because it was so slow to adapt & their arrogance amongst so many other things 👍

    Regal and Finlay had some good matches during this period. Not sure if you guys in Europe were able to see much of them or their style in the 90's, but it was fresh for us in the US. The international element of WCW during this period was a nice feature that gave the undercard freshness and diversity. Finlay and Regal were both very good at this time.

    Memory can be a strange thing. If you had asked me before this series started, there are a lot of things I thought I remembered from the early Monday night war period that I would thought have been a major component by April 29, 1996. Where is Raven's flock? The luchadores? The Cruiserweight title? Where is Ken Shamrock? Farooq? I suppose all of this is coming, but I would have thought that they started in the early months of Monday Night wars. In any case, I remember being very enthusiastic about Monday night wrestling by this period, and was asking my boss to have every Monday night off. It was so much better than what wrestling had been prior to this.

    It's funny to watch Austins offence pre-piledriver. He was a machine back in WCW and had Bischoff had any sense he'd have seen that and kept him around. That said he probably would have been lost in the mix as a mid-carder, elevating guys, but letting him go was ridiculous.

    Why do I love this channel? Cause when a match has low crowd noise you try and investigate why by researching the dark matches. It's that care that makes this the cream of the crop

    Stevie Ray is a terrible wrestler compared to Booker T. Stevie Rays matches essentially boil down to him punching and kicking, doing a body slam and rest holds. Then he tags Booker in and Booker actually does stuff. I really enjoyed the Parking lot brawl with Regal vs Finlay too. That piledriver on the car at the end looked awesome.
