The Nightly: August 14th, 2022

Hello Nightly!!!

Tonight, we’ll be taking a look at the August 30th, 1999 episode of WWF Raw Is War/War Zone.

On this episode, The Rock and Mankind would join forces to create the Rock N Sock Connection and win the tag titles. Though the match was essentially a handicap match, as Undertaker’s new gimmick is SpongeBob Chum Bucket, often subbing in Big Show to do his matches, though in reality, Taker is working through a groin injury. We also had X-Pac vs. Taka Michinoku, which was pretty cool. Meat also got caught cheating on Terri Runnels with Chaz’s girlfriend Marianna, via GTV. And finally, Big Boss Man has promised to deliver Pepper to Al Snow. But again, if you know your WWF history, SmackDown later that week would not go well for Al Snow.

Overall, this was a really good show, with the main story of Rock and Mankind becoming a team and then champions being the highlight.

On to the Nightly.
