When WCW Monday Nitro was created to go head to head with WWF Monday Night Raw, fans were treated to some of the greatest televised wrestling ever produced. Eric Bischoff and Ted Turner challenged Vince McMahon by producing WCW Nitro, airing on TNT every Monday at same time as the WWF’s flagship Monday Night Raw show. Fans and viewers had a choice, they could check out superstars of the WWF or they could see what this new WCW television show was all about. This era in wrestling, known as the “Monday Night Wars”, has become legendary to fans who lived through this particular time period. Many would say that wrestling was at it’s absolute peek during the Monday Night Wars between World Championship Wrestling and the World Wrestling Federation.
This series takes a look at each week of the iconic Monday Night Wars. We have arrived at episode 12, it’s the 27th of November 1995. WCW have just finished up with their November Pay Per View where Macho Man Randy Savage became the WCW World Heavyweight Champion. Over on the WWF side, another new champion was beginning his third reign, Bret “The Hitman” Hart had defeated Diesel at the Survivor Series 1995 PPV and he was getting prepared to defend the title against all challengers. Superstars included in this episode of “Reliving The War” include Hunter Hearst Helmsley, Lex Luger, Hulk Hogan, The Undertaker, Bret Hart and Bull Nakano.

    Wwf even in the darkest days was actually way better than wcw when u look back. Wcw just had solid midcarders like the cruiser weights and eventually the NWO and crow sting but that’s really it

    I would award the Kimberly segment over Ahmed. Rad wasn’t spectacular and exciting Johnson loses the interview, while I found it a refreshing new focus for Kimberly. I also don’t find it fair to even consider removing a point because of hindsight. I thought It’s about the entertainment value at that segment time, notafterwards.

    Side note, Bull Nakano is also a pro golfer. Maybe she should team up with Varry Darsow?

    The Sting/Luger friendship was one of the few great booking ideas in WCW. It was interesting to have a face and heel remain good friends and even team up from time to time. Of course, the whole angle is dropped when the nWo arrive and nearly all of WCW was turned face because of it.

    "Playing it safe" was an interesting choice o words to describe the WWF Joshi match... It has been said that the match you saw was where Bull Nakano suffered her career ending injury. She became a pro golfer for a time after her Joshi career.

    Fun fact, Hogan was originally meant to go over the top rope and give Savage a clean win. He used his creative control to change the finish IN THE MIDDLE OF THE MATCH to what we saw.

    Please quit calling Barry the Resident Evil 4 Merchant. The RE4 Merchant actually sells useful things that are worth the money, and we LIKE it when he shows up. Stop besmirching the good name of the RE4 Merchant by associating him with Barry Dodinsky (or however you spell it)!

    Hogan got different crowd reactions dependent on where they were, one week he’d be booed the next he’d have massive cheers.

    The Hogan hating is ridiculous the reason WW3 ended as it did was because the long term game was to get to Hogan & Savage these controversies were a part of the storyline

    Morris did botch the moonsault, but he didn't actually miss. There was unprotected head to head contact. That's why Hogan is "selling", if you look he reacts to his head, which is not what you are trained to do with a splash. They clearly smacked heads.

    Although for me personally video is ruined with the "black/white RF static effect", every other scene. The static effect alters state of mind, they were pioneered that way, by at the time leading psychologists. It was a psychological weapon. What usually happened when the b&w static came into view. It triggered low esteem angered state, as it would also signify that a TV channel lost broadcasting signal. What happened to people who were sitting too close to TV appliances, they'd be willing to sit there for hours not caring about anything else, and if broadcast was interrupted they'd appear lost and very touchy. I love your work and videos, 4 minutes in can't taken it any more. Apologies.

    Savage had a legit torn triceps at WW3. Hogan was supposed to win the battle royal, but they changed the finished after Meltzer reported on Savage's injury to "prove" that he wasn't actually injured (even though he was). I'm surprised you missed Hogan's infamous "observe this" comment, where he burns a copy of the observer in the same fire he threw the dark Hogan attire into. You can see him holding what is supposed to be a rolled up copy of the observer in the clips you showed.
