Both WWF Raw and WCW Monday Nitro have been going head to head for around 3 months, kickstarting a time period within professional wrestling known as “The Monday Night Wars”.

Over on the WCW side, the company is heading towards their annual Starrcade event that will see Randy Savage defend the WCW Championship against either Sting, Lex Luger or “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair. This week’s episode of Nitro is from Charlotte, North Carolina… and The Four Horsemen have plenty of fans in attendance.

      AHMED will do that to a guy ! ! LoL. Just be glad you weren't that jobber ! Anyway you can post that HORSEMAN Segment? It for SURE, was a subtle loose cannon promo. Hey man, I REALLY APPRECIATE the work you put into these episodes and I think you give a very fair analysis.

    It's VERY Evident that at this point WWF wasn't doing a very good job oF Building the PPV MAIN EVENT Matches via the weekly stories on the television shows. Sure, they were doing the SLAM JAM, etc.. But I feel like REALLY Making BRET/TITLE and the programs feel important was hit or miss at this time.

    I was at this Nitro... If you look behind Disco when he gets on the ropes to dance before his match, you can see (left to right) my stepdad, my cousin, and myself, all in our Carolina Panthers jerseys giving Disco the finger lol... You can see us around 22:18 - 22:20 in the top right corner in our jerseys lol... And you're right. That crowd was wild for Flair & Anderson. It was cool.

    love it! I watched all of both episodes being from the west coast. I did watch SS '95 and didn't watch World War 3 but called the hotline to find out who won and I did ask my parents first! Took like 3 minutes to hear Macho Man won. here's some facts around the time y'all probably knew: Bret Hart was just the second WWF Champion in history. Razor Ramon was the first 4-time IC champion in history. Shawn Micheals just dropped his third IC reign. He was the second 3-time IC champ ever. Hulk Hogan's first WCW reign ended a few weeks ago. Macho Man is on his first WCW reign.

    Went back and watched that Shawn Michaels interview I remember being scared at the time that Shawn was going to die when he collapsed in the ring and Vince McMahon seemed genuinely upset about it but watching it now at 31 years old it just makes me laugh especially Vince gushing over Shawn and being all heartbroken and just begging people to love Shawn so different from the Mr McMahon character

    RE: Brett Hart vs. Backlund Let’s be honest, Backlund shouldn’t have been wrestling at all. If you have to rely on two armbars because you’re gassed, then you shouldn’t be stepping into the ring. And this isn’t just against Bob, since as a wrestling fan who was watching this stuff as it happened, I can tell you my friends and family would change the channel the second any of the old timers brought out the armbar or headlock. Hogan was no exception here either, as he would get gassed walking to the ring. The only one I’d possibly give an exception to would be Flair, as he could last a decent amount of time being running out of steam, and he knew how to a.) wrestle, and b.) put on an exciting match. As for Hogan beefing with Sting over the solo Babyface walk, that’s gotta be a LLLOOOOONNNGGG walk when you’re getting booed right after everyone was getting ovations. Going together would’ve given Hogan some rub-off love. Hindsights 20/20 - so why don’t you embrace it? Start giving these episodes your own rating at the end, determine which ones were “must see,” and which were complete garbage.

    WWF creative in 1995: “We’ve got one of, if not the best worker in the business, what should we do with him at In Your House 5?” Also WWF creative in 1995: “Throw him in there with Diesel”

      Well, Bret Hart had a really great match with diesel the month before I guess the idea was Owen could probably have a great match too? Though if I remember correctly it wasn't really that good It was mostly a one sided affair I think it would have been better if they gave Diesel Yokozuna with the idea being he wants to face the biggest baddest guy and former world champion and Owen could've wrestled Hakushi since WWF never really used him much on PPV after Summerslam and he was incredible

    Ohh, next week is also one of the first BIG moments in the Monday Night War on the WCW side. Up until then, most of the shots Bischoff did were just glancing blows. The week after this, though, something happens that people remember for a LONG time. If you don't know what it is, wait until next week to find out. It's one of THE big moments in the 5 and a half year ratings war.
