It's Raw vs Nitro from 3.11.1996 !
We are now months into the Monday Night War as WCW Nitro on TNT takes on WWF Monday Night Raw on the USA Network. WrestleMania XII and Uncensored 96 are coming up soon, and both companies use these shows to add a little hype to the upcoming pay per views. We find out that WCW Uncensored will feature a "Doomsday Cage Match" where The Mega Powers will take on Ric Flair, Lex Luger, Kevin Sullivan and Arn Anderson. More heels would get added on next week's show but for now, it's a 4 on 2 match. Over on Raw, we get a chance to see Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels training for their upcoming 60 minute Iron Man Match at WrestleMania.
Superstars we see in this week's episode include Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Giant, Roddy Piper, Hunter Hearst Helmsley, The Road Warriors, The Undertaker, and we also see the return of one of the very best tag teams in the world!

    Bret found a tough Mexican wrestler years later in WCW when he was ready to go toe to to with El Dandy, who was a real jam up guy.

    Never say "Steiner Recliner" when referring to this version of Scott Steiner. Still, he's already starting to look even more jacked than usual.

    I feel like it's wrong to give the point to RAW all because of the montages which had nothing to do with the two wrestling matches. The montages should have just been yes it happened but the score should have been left between the two matches.

    I disagree with that grading on the Austin/Vega match. I always loved their rivalry. There was no real reason for their feud, they just hated each other. It’s perfect and that match wasn’t terrible, definitely better than Hacksaw vs the Giant.

    Piper: (disgusted with Goldust) I’m done. I've had enough! (Goldust slaps him in the face and taunts him) Jerry "The King" Lawler (and crowd): WHOA! (Piper slaps Goldust back, knocking him to the ground) Whoa! Here we go! I told you! Piper: You want a backlot fight? You want a fight you jerk? Then a fight you got and you know what? I'm gonna make a man out of you! (Throws microphone at Goldust and leaves the ring.)

    I feel like a lot of these points for raw are only justified with hindsight. You need to ask how entertaining and significant some of these segments would have actually been live.

    "it was supposed to make viewers feel uncomfortable" 😂 That same excuse wouldn't be used by most podcasts if it was a disliked wrestler who said it.

    Wasn't Pourteau eventually called "The Pug" later on, and was used as a little more than just enhancement? I'm pretty sure there was even a short article on him in WWF magazine in the "Making The Grade" section one time along with Mark Henry in his American Flag leotard.

    I actually enjoyed watching the lumberjack strap match. It was utterly chaotic and overbooked - reminiscent of the tongue in cheek approach of old school mid western rasslin. The best parts for me: 1. when Hogan accidentally (?) whipped Savage on the back, and 2. when a kneeling Flair had his wide-open mouth too close to Hogan's crotch area.

    You might all disrespect The Booty Man, but there is one thing you can’t take away from him, and that is he is a main event draw when The Booty Man was with Hogan, but still a main event draw nonetheless.

    I very much enjoy this series, but I think you're wrong on this show. Kinda felt like you came up with a lame excuse so you wouldn't have to call it a tie since there were only 4 segments.
