The Nightly: May 1st, 2022

Hello Nightly!!!

Tonight, we take a look at the October 26th, 1998 edition of WWF Raw Is War/War Zone.

X-Pac vs. Steve Blackman for the WWF European Championship:

Real Man’s Man Steven Regal would interfere.

The Rock vs. Droz:

Decent match.

Kane vs. Gangrel:

After this match, The Brood would officially form, as Edge turned heel and joined Gangrel and Christian.

Godfather vs. Tiger Ali Singh:

This match was so boring and bad, the crowd ended up doing the wave.

Oddities and Insane Clown Posse vs. Kaientai:

Who would have thought that ICP and Dock Togo would have ever shared the ring together?

Marc Mero vs. Goldust:

Goldust would get DQed due to Shattered Dreams.

New Age Outlaws vs. Mankind and Al Snow for the WWF World Tag Team Championships:

Not a great match.

Stone Cold Steve Austin vs. Ken Shamrock in an I Quit match:

Decent Raw main event, they basically repeat the finish of Austin/Dude at Over The Edge 1998.

The main story was Shane McMahon rehiring Austin, and cutting a really good face promo on Vince. There was also a mini Motley Crue concert as the band performed Wild Side to promote their then recent Greatest Hits record. I wish they had rock bands like this perform on WWE TV more often. Overall, a really good Raw.

On to the Nightly.
