The Nightly: October 17th, 2021

Hello Nightly!!!

Raw:

Hart Foundation vs. Godwinns for the WWF World Tag Team Championships:

Decent match, afterwards LOD would get slipped dropped by accident.

Stone Cold Steve Austin vs. Billy Gunn:

Good little TV match, Honky Tonk Man is once again attacked by a New Age Outlaws member after the match.

The Headbangers vs. Freddie Joe Floyd and Barry Horowitz:

Squash match.

Ken Shamrock vs. Vernon White:

This was done as a worked shoot style match, and it went about as well as you would expect.

Vader vs. Frank Stilletto:

Squash match.

Stone Cold Steve Austin vs. Mankind:

This was a fun brawl. This was meant to be Sid/Mankind, but Sid seemingly no showed. Softball, perhaps? Austin agrees to fill in if he gets Bret Hart at the next In Your House.

Nitro:

Hugh Morrus and Konnan vs. Psicosis and Alex Wright:

Okay tag team match.

Rey Mysterio Jr. vs. Lord Steven Regal:

Regal goes insane during this match, and leaves Iaukea worse for wear, which will play an important part later on in the show.

Chris Benoit vs. Ice Train:

Okay match.

Kevin Sullivan vs. Hector Guerrero:

Basic Taskmaster squash match.

Dean Malenko vs. Chris Jericho for the WCW United States Championship:

Solid match.

High Voltage vs. Public Enemy:

Alright match.

Harlem Heat vs. Four Horsemen:

This was mostly a handicap match, as Mongo was missing for most of the match, only appearing near the end.

Ultimo Dragon vs. Prince Iaukea for the WCW World Television Championship:

Dragon wins, as Iaukea was still injured from the Regal beat down earlier in the night, but the match itself wasn’t super effective at selling that fact.

Overall, both shows were solid, Nitro just kind of felt like a nothing show. They kind of tease NWO dissention in the first half, but other than foreshadowing Wolfpac vs. Hollywood the following year, nothing really becomes of it. Raw was pretty entertaining though.

On to the Nightly.
