Monday Night Raw Date: December 23, 2002 Location: Ford Center, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler It’s the last regular show of the year as next week is a Best Of special. Thankfully that means one less week of Scott Steiner vs. HHH, who last week reached new levels of suck with a […]

Monday Night Raw – December 16, 2002: It’s A Bad Sign When They Don’t Fight

Monday Night Raw Date: December 16, 2002 Location: TD Waterhouse Center, Orlando, Florida Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler We’re past the final pay per view of the year and that means it’s time to get ready for the 2003 Royal Rumble. That also means that the new Raw World Champion HHH needs a new challenger, […]

Monday Night Raw – December 9, 2002: Three Times! THREE TIMES!

Monday Night Raw Date: December 9, 2002 Location: Thompson-Boling Arena, Knoxville, Tennessee Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler It’s the go home show for Armageddon and that means it’s time for the HHH vs. Shawn Michaels Show (as in the official version instead of the unofficial one we’ve seen for weeks now). Other than that, I […]

Monday Night Raw – December 2, 2002 (2017 Redo): The Best In The World Because They Say So

Monday Night Raw Date: December 2, 2002 Location: Frank Erwin Center, Austin, Texas Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler So HHH is back and I’d assume that’s about all you need to know for this show. That whole week without HHH around to really run the show must have scared the company as he interfered in […]

Monday Night Raw – November 25, 2002: Boring Wrestling and Violent Illness

Monday Night Raw Date: November 25, 2002 Location: North Charleston Coliseum, North Charleston, South, Carolina Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler We’re still in the Shawn Michaels Era and he’s actually defending the title this week against Rob Van Dam.

Monday Night Raw Date: November 11, 2002 Location: US Bank Arena, Cincinnati, Ohio Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler It’s the go home show for Survivor Series 2002 and that means we’re in for a lot of talking about the Elimination Chamber.

Monday Night Raw – October 28, 2002: The Default Upgrade

Monday Night Raw Date: October 28, 2002 Location: Joe Louis Arena, Detroit, Michigan Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler This show comes in with a very simple advantage: it’s not the Katie Vick episode. There have been well over 1000 episodes of Monday Night Raw (we’ll hit #500 by the end of 2002) and last week’s […]

Monday Night Raw – October 14, 2002: An Embarrassment to Wrestling Fans

Monday Night Raw Date: October 14, 2002 Location: Bell Centre, Montreal, Quebec, Canada Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler I’m going to get straight to the point on this one: we’re in the Katie Vick era. No Mercy is in six days and the big story is HHH claiming that Kane killed someone named Katie Vick […]

Monday Night Raw Date: October 7, 2002 Location: Thomas and Mack Center, Las Vegas, Nevada Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler We’re in Las Vegas for a special show as WWE continues to fight (in vein) against Monday Night Football.
