The Nightly: January 27th, 2022

Hello Nightly!!!

WWF Raw Is War/War Zone: February 23rd, 1998:

New Age Outlaws vs. Legion Of Doom:

LOD would lose and the team seem to be on the verge of breaking up.

Ken Shamrock vs. Jeff Jarrett:

A mistimed Cornette interference would cost Jarrett the match.

Truth Commission vs. Disciples Of Apocalypse:

Neverending break up of Truth Commission continues.

Barry Windham vs. Taka Michinoku:

Kane would ruin this match.

Bradshaw vs. The Artist Formerly Known As Goldust:

Goldust would dress as Dusty Rhodes in this match.

Steve Blackman vs. The Rock:

Even if Rock isn’t quite the Rock yet, and even if it is via backfired interference, it is truly bizarre to see Steve Blackman get a pinfall victory over The Rock.

Owen Hart vs. Marc Mero for the WWF European Championship:

Sable would come out and brawl with Luna.

WCW Monday Nitro: February 23rd, 1998:

Lex Luger vs. Curt Hennig:

Match would be ruined by the newest member of the NWO, post Steiner Brothers but not quite Big Poppa Pump just yet, Scott Steiner.

Diamond Dallas Page vs. Van Hammer:

Decent match.

Rick Steiner vs. Vincent:

Complete squash match.

Ultimo Dragon vs. Kaz Hayashi:

Solid cruiserweight action.

Raven vs. Chris Benoit:

Fun brawl.

Booker T vs. Renegade:

Bit of a clumsy match.

Konnan vs. Lizmark Jr.:

Decent match.

Chris Jericho vs. Lenny Lane for the WCW Cruiserweight Championship:

Jericho would come to the ring wearing Juventud Guerrera’s mask.

Perry Saturn vs. Yuji Nagata:

Decent but very basic match.

Eddie Guerrero vs. Disco Inferno:

Alright match.

Ric Flair vs. Brad Armstrong:

Decent match.

Vicious and Delicious vs. High Voltage:

Decent tag match.

Overall, while both shows were filler shows, I’d say Raw was the better show. Nitro, while not bad, has just become something of a chore to watch ever since it went three hours.

On to the Nightly.
