WCW Monday Nitro and WWF Monday Night Raw went head to head on 3.25.96. The WWF are just 6 days away from their historic WrestleMania XII pay per view where Bret Hart would face Shawn Michaels in a 60 minute marathon match, while WCW are one night removed from their Uncensored 96 PPV that featured the ill-fated Doomsday Cage match.
This week's episode of Raw puts a huge focus on WrestleMania 12 with promos from The Undertaker and Goldust. Shawn Michaels is in action and Bret Hart comes to ringside to get a closer look at his WrestleMania opponent. Over on TNT, Hulk Hogan is nowhere to be found after he and Randy Savage beat the "Alliance to end Hulkamania" at Uncensored. The Nature Boy Ric Flair defends his WCW Championship against The Giant in the main event while Sting & Lex Luger battle The American Males. We're still in the early days of the Monday Night War, but things are definitely heating up!

    " You Start the 🔥" GREAT STUFF.. BRET/HBK was a great build, it had to be different BC it was a Babyface Match.. WCW: BOOTY MANIA is still runnin wild and It feels like I haven't seen EDDIE, BENOIT, or MALENKO, REGAL in months & months... I can't BELIEVE SULLIVAN took that bump😂

    Don't worry... WM12 is only the BEGINNING of Bret and Shawn's "deeper issues"! Finally... I'm convinced. I had forgotten about this match... Owen couldn't do it, so that settles it. Because if OWEN HART couldn't even salvage one, NO ONE could have EVER gotten a decent match out of Ahmed Johnson!

    It's kind of funny to think that Flair was even better at wrestling giants than Hogan, who basically subsisted on that. That punt kick low blow was hilarious and looked effective.

    This is just great for history. I used to have to point out to people that Nitro used to beat Raw in the ratings from time to time BEFORE the NWO, because people have this impression WCW only was competitive when the NWO hit the scene. No, they were just dominant when that happened. But people watched & enjoyed WCW long before the NWO. It was after the NWO where people started tuning out.

    Why is the name "The Final Solution" a big deal?

    1. jizzhunt

      It’s because the term “Final Solution” was the code name of the Nazi’s mass genocide of the Jews back in WW2.

    I'm just wondering what your planning on doing when Nitro goes to two hour broadcasts and Raw sticks with the hour long format. How will you compare and contrast then? Love the channel btw.

    The Iron Man Match at WM12 was so horibly booked and it could have so easily been fixed. Just have them have a standard match, that goes the hour time limit. And then they could've done the restart.

    I like the channel and having nothing to do with this video, I had a random idea for wrestling bios. Many people know the Hogan-era and after but little about Sammartino or Backlund, the "guys" before Hulk. Especially the feud with Sammartino and Zybyzko.

    Also remember next week that another big part of the Attitude Era puzzle debuts on WWE Raw! It's a wonder that, even at this point, we're seeing the building blocks of what would be a big wrestling boom take hold right now. Steve Austin, The Undertaker (he was always there, though), Nash, Hall, the eventual Al Snow, we have Sting one year prior to a HUGE makeover for his character that would reinvent him and get his even MORE over than he already was, Goldust doing what he was doing well before the WWE decided to go down the Attitude route, and the man coming in next week that would move the needle more. We didn't know it then, but this was becoming quite the time to be a wrestling fan.

    If it wasn't for hogan would we really care about Brutis Beefcake, also not that Triple H was a bum did they have to job out Justin Credible. As much as I like Ahmed he was the worst when in there with someone who knew that they were doing like Owen. And if we are going to be honest Bret was everything He said He was: The Best there Is,The Best there Was,And the Best there EVER Will Be. As far as Flair's match it went the way it was supposed to go. Flair did exactly what he would have done against ANDRE. I'M JUST SAYING
