Rick Rude played both sides to perfection on this date in pro wrestling history, showing up on both Monday Night Raw and Monday Nitro on the very same night.
Timing is everything!
On November 17, 1997, Rick Rude managed to appear for both World Wrestling Federation (WWF) and World Championship Wrestling (WCW) all in one night.
That's because Rude had already taped his segment for Monday Night Raw six days earlier, prior to jumping ship, before his unexpected walk-on during Monday Nitro.
Anyone else remember switching back and forth between both shows (common at that time) and thinking WTF?!?
And which version of Rude did you like better?
