Reliving The War continues! In this series, we look at the Raw vs Nitro TV battle that took place during the mid 90s to early 2000s. WCW Monday Nitro took on WWF Monday Night Raw for TV ratings supremacy as WCW executive producer Eric Bischoff made some bold moves to become the number 1 wrestling company in the United States. With WWF Raw on the USA network and WCW Nitro airing on TNT, fans had to choose which show to watch... and this time period within wrestling was known as "The Monday Night War".
Its 1.29.96, the WWF are showing taped matches while Nitro, as always, is live. WCW just wrapped up their Clash of the Champions special on TBS while the WWF have been building towards In Your House 6 and WrestleMania XII. Superstars included in this episode of Reliving The War include Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels, Hulk Hogan, The Giant, Ric Flair, Diesel and many more.

    I always thought it was lame when Hogan shook off peoples blows to him and went off. It was getting old seeing the same Hogan gimmick every week.

    So basically, if Sherry was concussed, Medusa did nothing to protect her and made the situation worse. Do we know if Medusa was ever an unsafe worker?

    I'm not a huge Hogan hater like others are but man, when its notable that he does the most basic level of selling for his opponent you start to understand why so many dislike him..

    It's very interesting to watch how Nitro forced WWF to produce more compelling and competitive matches to compete with WCW. You can literally watch Raw get better each week to keep pace with Nitro

    Truly these were the good old days of wrestling. If your willing to fight tooth and nail you can come out on top and that money doesn't always win. Most of WCW wrestlers including Bischoff were at the mercy of WWE when the dust settled.

    Diesel was a better Roman Reigns than Roman.. He was a better more over babyface champ the fans cheered and this isn't even the peak of his popularity once he's in the nWo. I take Diesel Power over Roman Empire. I take WWF 1995-1996 over the past 15 years

    I agree 💯% with you giving the point to Raw for the Shawn Michaels/Yokozuna (Rest In Power, Yokozuna!), But I disagree with you giving the point to Raw concerning Roddy Piper being put in as the new President of the Then-WWF. Sherri Martel and Madusa had a very fierce fight, which would have caused me to give that point to WCW. This, however, is only my opinion. You're doing a great job with this series! I love it, & I'm glad that I subscribed!

    Vince is the biggest hypocrite. He intentionally went out of his way to ruin and end territories by stealing their biggest talent and a bunch of the time he misused them and wasted their talent which didn't matter as long as his competition was gone. Then when someone put up a fight he cried foul and acted like a spoiled brat. Vince at the time revolutionized wrestling, but now it has turned out he's ruined it and put almost a death date on it. Turning it into a monopoly has allowed it to become stale and a joke. Him, hogan, and Stephanie shouldn't be allowed within a mile of a wrestlin arena or production

    All your shows are awesome and you are probably a busy dude but if you ever wanted a new show idea I'd watch an entire series on the history of moves. Like who invented the power bomb, who made it famous, what are some legendary spots, how did it change through the years like becoming a transition move or illegal, finally who hit it the best/sold it the best. Overall I love this channel and think you'd do an amazing job covering it.

    According to the Road Worriors themselves, If they won a match without doing the doomsday device it was because there opponent for the match would let them know that they were afraid to take it. So Barberian probably asked LOD not to do it.

    The WWF whining about WCW competing against them was REALLY RICH. That was the height of McMahon hypocrisy. I enjoyed both companies around this time, but JFC, you wanna talk about a lack of self awareness there?
