Not the Show That Is On These Days
16 September 2000 | by (Manhattan) – See all my reviews

Obviously, people who have reviewed before are failing to recall that WWF Monday Night RAW is not the same show that is being aired today. That show is RAW IS WAR which is eventually what WWF Monday Night RAW became. The show mentioned in this entry was what originated in Manhatten back in 1993. It was aired in the same location until around September of that year. It featured such drama like Hulk Hogan returning and reuniting with Brutust "The Barber" Beefcake, Marty Jannetty coming from the crowd dressed in Street Clothes and challenging and beating Shawn Michaels for the IC Title, Sid Vicious powerbombing Shawn Michaels three times until Diesel ran in for the save and the Two Dudes With Attitudes were reunited, Shawn Michaels recieving an inziguri kick from Owen Hart and falling victim to the dreaded "post-concussion syndrome," and one of the final moments that the original RAW will be remembered for is when the late Brian Pillman pulled a gun on Steve Austin at his house in the single most recognized moment of violence in WWF history.

The show remained in this format, broadcasting in small venues and concentrating on WRESTLING from about 1993 - 1995. In 1996 the show went to larger venues and decided it'd start getting rougher and care less about wrestling and by 1997 the concept of wrestling was completely gone.

I hope I've helped shed some light onto what this show really was...a MUCH better version of the show we see today and how WWF should have stayed.
