Raw vs Nitro "Reliving The War" takes a look at the Monday Night television ratings battle between WCW Monday Nitro and WWF Monday Night Raw. Many fans of professional wrestling feel that both the WWF and WCW put on their absolute best television during this time period, a time period that tested the creativity of promoters and writers within the wrestling landscape. In 1995 though, and even in early 1996, both WCW and the WWF were trying to find new ways to innovate through their television shows while also staying one step ahead of the competition.
We have arrived at episode 13, it's the 4th of December 1995, Raw is showing taped matches while Nitro is live on TNT. The WWF will present an intercontinental title match on Raw this week while WCW plans to grab viewers attention with a WCW Heavyweight Championship match. Superstars featured on Raw and Nitro include Razor Ramon, The Giant, Ric Flair, Sid, Fatu, Lex Luger and The British Bulldog. We also have a health update on Shawn Michaels, his personal physician shares some news regarding HBK's future in wrestling. It's Raw vs Nitro, it's the WWF vs WCW, and it would soon turn into a battle for survival.

    As long as we can agree Sir Charles is a better knight than Sir Mo it's all okay with me. Also, with how thickly layered on that last Shawn segment was i was entirely expecting Dr. Feelgood to diagnose Shawn with "Lost Smile".

    Seriously was there a more bland, boring wrestler ever then Lex Luger? His promos sucked ass, he wasn’t entertaining to watch and was overall just terrible. He had one gimmick and that was the narcissist after that he became the bland blonde muscular guy. Why they ever pushed him is beyond me (both WCW and WWF). Also he looks like a bonehead in almost every appearance. Especially that Summerslam match with Yokozuna where he apparently was just as happy with winning via count out as winning the actual title. I disagree with you, he did NOT put good matches together EVER.

    The Macho - Vince stuff has always been interesting. I don't think Vince thought Macho couldn't go but I think he wanted to keep Macho on a pedestal rather than be used to get guys over. I am doubtful on the Steph claims..get the sense Vince loved Macho much like Shawn later and Taker towards end of Taker's career.. So Vince felt totally betrayed/bitter as time went on. Now I'm not saying it was a homosexual thing, could have been platonic, but you can just tell Vince feels strongly about certain wrestlers and in the Taker docu can see how much loyalty means to him. So I think it may just be that combo as to why Vince took it personally and had Macho blacklisted. Just my theory / speculation on it.

    I had to watch that doctor segment as soon as I was done and it is pretty funny. It's also funny that in the clip of Shawn hitting the mat none of the fans in the first few rows seem worried at all. And when the doctor is trying to sell how serious it is, he lists symptoms like "nausea" and "numb toes." Poor Shawn.

    RE: Having to give a point: I feel, if you’re going to grant ties to the networks (as done in the past), then perhaps tossing out the garbage matches would be acceptable too. I don’t know what would’ve been on network television during this time period, but I have a feeling I’d be channel surfing through both matches there.
