It's 5.20.1996 and it's time to watch WCW Nitro and WWF Raw to see which show was really the best. This week's episode of Reliving The War marks the end of an era for World Championship Wrestling; not only is this the last Nitro broadcast to run under 2 hours, but this is also the calm before the storm... the final Nitro before Scott Hall's WCW return (leading to the eventual formation of the nWo). The whole Monday Night War was about to drastically change.
Raw is showing taped matches from Sioux City Iowa while Nitro is live from Monroe, Louisiana. The Steiner Brothers, Ric Flair, Eddie Guerrero and The Giant all work matches on TNT while The British Bulldog, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Savio Vega and Jake "The Snake" Roberts compete on the USA Network. The 1996 Slamboree results are also covered in this video.

    The way I would compare the two sohws is just, describe which sements ran unopposed and then rate the other as you have been. But weigh up wether or not the unopposed segments were a "watch or Not" qaulity wise.

    I often disagree with your decisions. The Steiners/Fire and Ice match should have won over Austin/Mero. The Steiner match was more impressive and hard hitting and a better example of what wrestling should be.

    Considering WWE (or WWF at the time) had an actual camera crew at the house show where the "Curtain Call" happened, I have to wonder why they reference it at times using some "bootleg" handheld camera footage of the incident instead of the high quality pro shot footage of it. Did they shut the cameras off directly after the main event ended? If they didn't, did they destroy the footage of the Curtain Call? Were the fans in MSG (that usually tend to be more smarkish, actually cheering the incident instead of being confused and uncertain? It leaves a lot of questions to ponder, to me at least.

    Re-living the War is the best. Nitro vs. Raw is most wrestling fans favorite time. So to see the whole thing is not only historically awesome but so so entertaining. I really do think you have the hottest formula here and I truly hope once the NWO hits and the Attitude era hits, that you get the hundreds of thousands of views that you will absolutely deserve. Thanks again for a weekly routine. I’m so glad I was here with your videos from week one.

I'm still going through your back catalog and you may have already done one. Either way when you know the whole story of Dallas i.e. his age when becoming a performer and his run in WCW. Its pretty damn impressive. "🙌...BANG!!!!!"
