    I see Fatu is working towards becoming Rikishi by this point. Is that the first time Norton teamed with Ice Train? I always wondered where that Fire & Ice thing started.

    Great video! As always. I do disagree on your DQ point with Flair and the Giant tho. Since Giant was allowed to take the title from Flair if he pinned him the DQ should stand..

    Man, I was watching around this time, & had no idea that Nitro was losing in the ratings, till now. The most embarrassing thing about the April 22, '96 broadcast, is that Bischoff gave away Raw's Results, & still got beat, in the ratings! Lmao!

    Would have said the Nitro main event was a total throw away match, where as the Raw main event was giving the audience a chance to see someone who was getting pushed. Even if I have never been the biggest Foley fan, Would have called it a Draw overall, but that's only my opinion, loving the videos and this series 😁

    I dont agree with the last point bcause although mankind hosting a raw main event this soon in his career with wwe it was a better finish than Nitro because Nitro had the same exact match with the same exact finish down to the coffee two weeks in a row which should take a point away just for that.

    The reason WCW did things like "All belts are on the line" nonsense is obvious. It was just a promo to get more eyeballs watching the match. It wasn't meant to actually amount to anything, it's just a tagline to get more interest on the match.

    This was wrestling's greatest time for me. I've been watching wrestling since the late '70s when Bob Backlund beat Superstar Billy graham. But in the early 2000s before ALfirst I used to subscribe to WWE on cable and I used to enjoy watching and reliving the Monday night wars

    I wonder... GENETICALLY... how this "perfect specimen" was born to eventually be nearly 7 feet tall, with 2/3 of his body weight ABOVE his knees. Seems like a genetic MISSTEP, if you ask me. In fact, after all of his knee surgeries, I'll bet big Kev' would agree at this point.
