The 1/12/98 Raw and Nitro are on the docket this time, as we discover that it’s apparently really important that this Raw is coming to you from State College, PA. Discussions include recent Jim Cornette comments on The Young Bucks and Lucha Underground, the 2015 Royal Rumble, how awful WCW was at booking following Starrcade 1997 and how lackluster Raw is for being a PPV lead-in.
This is The Bowling Shoe Ugly Cast! And this time, Joe and Greg take on the main event of ECW’s December to Dismember pay-per-view. An Extreme Elimination Chamber match that actually isn’t that bad for a few minutes. Then takes a turn for the garbage. Also includes Greg imagining an alternate universe in which Lashley is a member of Suzuki Gun.
We survived 1997 and we’re back for more! On this week’s episode of What a Maneuver we discuss the January 5th, 1998 episodes of WCW Nitro and WWF Raw. What does 1998 mean for professional wrestling? It means Bret Hart’s awful new entrance theme. It means a semi-popular star of late 80’s WWF will make his WCW debut. It means seeing the world in Schiavone-Vison. It means the ascension of the Rock, and Stone Cold, and…. and blackface Goldust?
What the fuck. Really?
In this special edition of What a Maneuver we discuss Kayfabe Commentary’s Timeline 1997 with Jim Cornette.
