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.

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 »

I'm not ashamed to admit that I absolutely LOVE this show!
I know it's cliche now to poke fun at "professional" wrestling. It's contrived, choreographed, and phony as hell in some respects, but you know what? That's exactly why I love it!!!! How can you not get goosebumps when one of your heroes is being pummeled in the ring and then down the ramp comes another superstar ready to lay the smacks down on their roodey-poo, candy . . . well you know the rest. Anyway, "redneck soap-opera," "poison for the mind," "phony sports," etc. Call it what you will but it's still pure sports entertainment and it never pretends to be anything more. Besides, the superstars on there are some of the most athletic people alive today.
