What a Maneuver 64: Dino-SNORE

This week Jason Mann (of Wrestlespective and NBA Peanuts) joins us to talk about Slamboree ’97, and the May 19th, 1997 episodes of WCW Nitro and WWF Raw.
We see WCW get some revenge, we find out that Owen FART sucks, and we enjoy some sunny days.


What a Maneuver 63: Substantial Pumping Required

The boys take on In Your House: A Cold Day in Hell and the 5/12/97 Raw and Nitro this week. The PPV is mediocre, but the main event is good. Nitro is still only an hour long because basketball, and Raw has bright spots and dim ones. And slightly racist ones.

What a Maneuver 61: Dr. Who is a Vader Timelord

It’s the April 28th, 1997 Raw and Nitro on the docket this week, and Joe & Eric are as surprised as anyone that Raw is among the best they’ve watched since they started this show. On the other hand, a truncated Nitro is among the worst they’ve watched and Raw is marred by an unfortunately clumsy Furnas & LaFon heel turn. Well, nothing is perfect.
