Storyline

This wrestling show quickly grew into one of the most popular sports/entertainment shows ever. In addition to presenting matches between the stars of the WWF, this program spent most of its time on the elaborate backstage story that had developed, involving feuds, deals, backstabbings and romances between the wrestlers, managers, referees and commissioners.

Trivia

In 1995 - 2001, WWF (now WWE) Raw almost always had at least half of its program shown opposite WCW Monday Nitro (1995) every Monday. WWF and WCW competed for ratings so severely, especially during 1996, that the competition was called the "Monday Night Wars". WCW was owned by Ted Turner and run by Eric Bischoff. This turned into a legitimate ratings feud between Bischoff and WWF owner Vince McMahon. WCW fell into financial peril and was up for sale in 2001 by AOL Time Warner (Turner had lost sole ownership of the company after Turner Broadcasting Systems merger with Time Warner in 1996). McMahon beat Bischoff to purchase WCW and Bischoff was out of a job. In 2002, McMahon hired Bischoff, who was scripted to become Raw's General Manager. McMahon had introduced Bischoff live on Raw and the two embraced in a hug. See more »

Goofs

In the "Pillman's got a gun" segment with Brian Pillman and Steve Austin in 1996, announcer Kevin Kelly mentions several times that Pillman is at his home in Cincinnati. But the on-screen graphic says the action is live in Walton, Kentucky. See more »

Raw Really Was A War
5 January 2003 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Back on March 10th 1997, WWF Monday Night Raw became Raw Is War figuratively and literally.

I believe 1997 was one of the best years for the WWF (now WWE). There were really heated feuds throughout such as The Hart Foundation VS Steve Austin, The Undertaker VS everyone, Triple H VS Mankind and so many others. Raw is War aired during the battle with rival promotion WCW (now defunct). There were PPV caliber matches throughout Raw Is War and there were some fantastic moments. 1998 was a great year too as WWF owner Vince McMahon became an authoritarian figure who feuded with the anti authority Stone Cold Steve Austin. The Rock was also coming into prominence as a wrestler as was Triple H. There were many other great moments such as the appearance of Mike Tyson, D-X 'invading' WCW, the Owen Hart tribute show and the episode from the 26th March 2001 where Shane McMahon betrayed his father Vince and brought WCW.

Raw Is War became simply Raw after a few years and is still a relatively entertaining program. However, the Raw Is War years really were WAR and worth tracking down on tape if possible.
