WWF Raw and WCW Nitro go head-to-head in "Reliving The War", a series on Wrestling Bios where we go back in time, looking at every episode of Raw and Nitro during the popular "Monday Night Wars" era of professional wrestling.
This weeks shows would prove to be landmark episodes of both Monday Night Raw and Monday Nitro. On the WCW side, the very first Sting vs Hulk Hogan match would air for free in the Nitro main event. Sting and Hulk Hogan would later break WCW PPV records, but here on Nitro we got to see the Hogan vs Sting match for the very first time. Over on WWF Raw, Shawn Michaels' push to the WWF championship would begin when Shawn collapses in the ring. Shawn has a match with Owen Hart, and when Owen hits an enziguri on Michaels, Shawn collapses and Raw goes off the air. Shawn would return at the 1996 Royal Rumble, winning the Rumble match while earning a WWF Championship match against Bret Hart at WrestleMania XII.
Wrestlers and personalities featured on this episode include Brian Pillman, Road Warrior Hawk, Savio Vega, Diesel, Hakushi and more.

    WWE has always been king of selling merch, WCW barely had any merch that I can recall, that hurt them financially no doubt.

    DIESEL promo was one of the 1st " worked shoot " promos as was the HBK injury angle. What made BOTH GREAT was the nuances, DIESEL mentioning VKM/Corporate WWF and then when VINCE Later left his post in commentary to check on HBK. The ANGLE was serious and BC it was treated as such, it resulted in HUGE Success. Some can point to this as the BEGINNING of SHAWN'S Strong Babyface PUSH that would culminate w him being on Top for the first time, winning the Title @WM12.. It's ALL in the nuances. Something that is NON-EXISTENT in AEW/WWE Today...

    I watched a sting video awhile back I know it's a little bit away but that interview was saying wrestling was so big in 97 they were getting like 30 40 million viewers u dont understand the 2 point are 3 point ratings but it cant be close to 20 million maybe 3 4 million at the most so I'm confused

    I have a request/recommendation. A "title change tracker". I've kept up with it so far, and each promotions tag team titles have changed hands and the WWF Women's Title changed hands. I'm not gonna dignify the WCW Halloween Havoc related title change silliness.

    *Fun Fact* Hogan was so shook of this crowd reaction, at the very start of the next ppv, he burned the darkside outfit and kissed Stings ass blatantly. Hulkster got a real scare of becoming heel here lol, as he was when he eventually did.

    Ted million dollar man had to be the happiest wrestler ever. He said Vince told him that to keep his gimmick up Vince flew him first class every where and took limousines every where and Vince gave him thousands of dollar bills to make sure that his gimmick was protected high class restaurants and hotel sweets you wonder how many wrestlers where jealous of him

    The 90's Raw Big Wigs are giving you heat huh? making threats about nitro winning so much? don't let them bully you into giving wins to raw that are undeserved! lol of course i am kidding :) i love this series, and i have wanted to rewatch mid 90's monday night war again for so long but never could get into it enough to watch again but this show you do has given me a reason to watch both sides from the beginning again like i did back when i was watching them in the 90s! (usually watch wcw and record wwf on video tape) :)

    I may have disagreed with your last episode of Reliving The War. This Episode I fully agree with all your opinion. This Raw was the best one yet in this series. I enjoy the 123 Kid match since it build his new heel stuff, the Diesel promo was awesome (can’t believe it was overlooked over the years tbh) and the Owen/HBK match was awesome & I think it was a good finish too cause it kept you guessing. I thought it was done so well to build HBK as the top babyface. Great stuff!! Nitro was alright. Not as good as some of the previous weeks due to a lot of filler squash matches. But Guerrero/Pillman was awesome and I like Hogan/Sting til the finish. Anyway I’m loving this series. It’s awesome. Keep it up!! 😊👍🏻

    Diesel became a tweener after droping the belt to hart. It was very interesting to see him been half face half heel, it was something we would see during the attitude era but in that new generation Era it was very rare to have that kind of tweener character.

    The wildcard match at SS95 was great. Lots of fun and so many booking possibilities through a match like that. And the Diesel/Bret match was fantastic. Probably Diesel's best match ever, and might be in Bret's top 10, which is saying a lot. Absolutely felt like a real fight, not a wrestling match 👍
