Tonight we take a look at the January 24th, 2000 episodes for both Raw and Nitro.
Over on Raw, it was the fallout show from Royal Rumble 2000 as Big Show has pretty much turned heel, complaining that Rock’s feet had hit the floor first and that he’s the rightful winner of the Royal Rumble match. Show and Triple H would team against Rock and Rikishi in the main event. There was also the Dudley Boyz driving Terri through a table, and they treat it as a big deal, it was around this time that the Dudley Boyz started putting people through tables.
And over on Nitro, it was Nash vs. Sid, with the world title on the line, with Sid becoming the new champion. There was also Daffney, Crowbar, and David Flair providing commentary for the tag title bout. And Crowbar was actually in ironically really good, I’m surprised he never had some kind of commentating side gif in the business. And in an interesting bit of foreshadowing, we saw Courteney Cox and future WCW World Heavyweight Champion David Arquette in the crowd. But more on him as champion at a later date…
On to the Nightly.
