Covering the 9/1/97 Nitro and the 9/5/97 Friday Night’s Main Event is a bit of a task for us. Because they’re not very good. High point includes lots of Steve Austin and archival Arn Anderson footage. Low points include… pretty much everything else, including a Bagwell/Glacier match, and a really mean-spirited Horsemen parody promo.
As the old saying goes, when the Joe is away, the Eric will… talk some of his friends into podcasting about an old episode of Charmed! “Wrestling With Demons” is a classic episode of the WB drama that dares to ask what would happen if three witches wrestled Buff Bagwell, Scott Steiner, and Booker T for some guy’s soul! Join us as we discuss the usage of “orb” as verb, discover Alyssa Milano’s cyborg name, do some impromptu measurement conversions, and get trapped inside a love rectangle.
What a Manevuer is proud to present the first installment of a new running feature, Gif Gallery: The Art of CHAMRED. This curated selection of animated gifs intends to silently capture the essence of the classic WB drama/sitcom. (NOTE: There will probably be no Part II.)

This week Robert Newsome, of the Atomic Elbow, joins Eric and Joe to discuss final Clash of Champions, the August 25th, 1997 episode of WCW Nitro, and a very special Friday Night’s Main Event. Robert drops some big news about a future issue of The Atomic Elbow, PLUS we talk about the WWE Network, make some NWO puns, tear up over Arn Anderson’s retirement speech, and tremble in fear of Wildcat Willie.
