The Monday Night War continues in “Reliving The War”!
The date is May 13th 1996, WWF Raw is on the USA Network while WCW Nitro is live on TNT. The two wrestling shows are going head to head for ratings supremacy, and wrestling fans have a choice in which wrestling show to watch.

    I should have mentioned this in your poll but just scrap the segment-by-segment point system, imo when Nitro goes 2 hours. Just tell us which overall product you enjoyed better. Let's face it, while this point system is fun, inevitably it will be dressing when WWE fully takes over. No disrespect, the last thing I care about when watching this series is the point system.

    I would like to defend "random matches." They help to develop characters, both the relatively new talent like Bradshaw, those who we haven't seen in a while, like Chris Benoit, and those who are coming off of big losses, like Ric Flair. From a fan's perspective, it is a nice change of pace to just watch a good match without the soap opera stuff. And matches like Flair-Rotunda or Benoit-Taylor are good matches with professionals that don't necessarily need the storylines. If you follow any "real sports," the random games occur and people accept them, because they build to the bigger games. Without those random games, the big games wouldn't seem big. I will grant you that in the 80's, there were too many random matches. I also think that in the late Monday Night War period, there were too many storylines. I think that during this early Monday Night War era, they struck the perfect balance and it was perhaps my favourite time to be a fan.
