WWF Raw Is War/War Zone: January 12th, 1998:
New Age Outlaws vs. Truth Commission vs. Godwinns vs. Headbangers:
Ken Shamrock and Mark Henry vs. Nation Of Domination:
Mark Henry would pull a swerve and become the new member of the Nation, much to Faarooq’s chagrin.
Kurrgan vs. Jimmy Cicero and Lance Diamond:
Basic squash match. Best part about these matches has been Jackyl on commentary.
Disciples of Apocalypse vs. Rock N Roll Express:
Jim Cornette was inexplicably managing the Express and wound up getting caught cheating for them. This match and angle was truly something.
Marc Mero vs. Vader:
Alright match, Goldust came to the ring dressed as Sable.
Mankind vs. The Artist Formerly Known As Goldust:
Austin would come in and stun both guys about ten seconds after the match started.
Los Boricuas vs. Taka Michinoku and Scott Taylor:
Decent tag match.
Overall, this was a really strong go home show for Royal Rumble 1998. Stone Cold continued his crusade of doing onto others before they do onto him, and the DX/Undertaker/Kane saga has been great.
On to the Nightly.
