The 5/18/98 episodes of Raw and Nitro are on tap for us this episode. Nitro is only one hour because of the NBA playoffs, but still manages to cram in three Bischoff segments! Raw features Kane in a windbreaker, Dude Love in a suit coat and sweatpants and the debut of the ahem biggest star in the WWF. We also discuss this year’s Summerslam weekend festivities and Pac-Man enemies.
Eric’s sound card had a problem, so he replaced his entire PC! Now that that’s done, here’s a new episode. It’s on Slamboree 1998! We talk about the highs (the return of Dean Malenko) and the lows (see the title of this episode) and everything in between! This show continues the late-‘90s WCW tradition of a hot undercard with a garbage top of the card, but how hot and how garbage? You’ll have to listen to find out!
Viagra jokes on both shows as the boys take on the May 11th, 1998 episodes of Raw and Nitro. Nitro features almost exclusively squash matches, while Raw sees the debut of Al Snow, Sable powerbombing Marc Mero and Steve Austin teaming with Vince McMahon.
A few months ago, we recorded a short episode about Wrestlemania 32, but that conversation is now hopelessly out of date. In an attempt to squeeze some value from the recording, we decided to add some thoughts about where the WWE has gone since WM32. Topics of discussion include: The past two PPVs, the impending Raw/Smackdown brand-split, and an impromptu wrestler draft.
Just in case you’d like to skip directly to the conversation on current events, the Wrestlemania portion of the show lasts until the 27-minute mark.
