So I’ve been watching Raw from 1999 and the following becomes obvious.
This is one of the best lists WWE has ever put together. #1 still gives me chills.
Invasion Date: July 22, 2001 Location: Gund Arena, Cleveland, Ohio Attendance: 17,964 Commentators: Michael Cole, Jim Ross So this is easily the most requested show since I’ve stated doing the reviews so I might as well get it out of the way. This is the infamous INVASION of the WCW/ECW Alliance. Since I’ve already explained […]
In Your House 9: International Incident Date: July 21, 1996 Location: General Motors Place, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada Commentators: Vince McMahon, Jerry Lawler, Jim Ross Attendance: 14,804 We’re a month removed from KOTR 96 here where three things happened. #1, Shawn pinned Bulldog clean to retain the title, so that’s out of the way.

Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler We’re three weeks away from No Way Out and most of the card is pretty clear on the Raw side. The main event will be determined tonight as we have Jericho vs. Steiner for a shot at HHH’s […]

King of the Ring 1999 Date: June 27, 1999 Location: Greensboro Coliseum, Greensboro, North Carolina Attendance: 19,761 Commentators: Jerry Lawler, Jim Ross We’re at the very end of the Corporate Ministry here as Taker is champion and Austin is the CEO due to some complete insanity.

Monday Night Raw Date: June 25, 2001 Location: Madison Square Garden, New York City, New York Attendance: 13,763 Commentators: Jim Ross, Paul Heyman Ok so we’re past King of the Ring now and there are a few more developments.
