So unfortunately only had time to watch Raw today, so we’ll only be taking a look at Raw.
Stone Cold Steve Austin and Faarooq vs. Jesse James/Bret Hart and Savio Vega:
Man, Savio/Austin was the feud of 96 in WWF. Jesse James was Mayfair injured by Austin during the match and Bret pretty much inserts himself into this match.
Hunter Hearst Helmsley vs. Flash Funk:
Jerry Lawler vs. Goldust:
Very short match, really just an angle to help build Helmsley/Goldust.
Overall, this show was a bit mediocre. The highlight was an in ring segment with Shawn and Bret, where it’s painfully obvious that these two can’t stand each other, and WWF all but tells you that Bret Hart will probably win the Rumble. It was kind of a random thing considering that neither guy had a program with each other at this point in time, trying to build to a Mania match that I don’t think was necessary, really.
On to the Nightly.
