Monday Night Raw Date: May 27, 1996 Location: Cumberland County Memorial Auditorium, Fayetteville, North Carolina Attendance: 5,000 Commentators: Vince McMahon, Jerry Lawler We’re past In Your House VIII and….we saw about half the show. In a pretty famous moment, the arena’s power was knocked out by an electrical storm and aside from the first and […]

Monday Night Raw – May 13, 1996: The First of Way Too Many

Monday Night Raw Date: May 13, 1996 Location: Sioux City Auditorium, Sioux City, Iowa Attendance: 4,000 Commentators: Vince McMahon, Jerry Lawler Maybe this one can pick things up a bit. Last week’s show was about as uninteresting as you can get as we head towards In Your House VIII and the showdown of Shawn Michaels […]

Royal Rumble Count-Up – 1997 (2017 Redo): Rose Colored Glasses

Royal Rumble 1997 Date: January 19, 1997 Location: Alamodome, San Antonio, Texas Attendance: 60,235 Commentators: Vince McMahon, Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler I’m scared to think how many of those tickets were freebies. This is the annual requested redo and I’m not sure what to expect going into it. Well I am as I’ve seen the […]

Survivor Series Count-Up – 1996 (2016 Redo):

Survivor Series 1996 Date: November 17, 1996 Location: Madison Square Garden, New York City, New York Attendance: 18,647 Commentators: Jim Ross, Vince McMahon, Jerry Lawler I had three options for an older redo this year (this one, 1988 and 1992) but this one had the most Survivor Series matches plus Steve Austin vs. Bret Hart, […]

Monday Night Raw – February 19, 1996: On The Road Again

Monday Night Raw Date: February 19, 1996 Location: Cincinnati Gardens, Cincinnati, Ohio Attendance: 8,500 Commentators: Vince McMahon, Jerry Lawler We’re done with In Your House VI and the big story is that it’s time for Wrestlemania. There’s barely anything to talk about coming out of last night’s show other than Bret is still champion, Diesel […]

Monday Night Raw – July 29, 1996: And Then There Was Summerslam

Monday Night Raw Date: July 29, 1996 Location: Key Arena, Seattle, Washington Attendance: 6,755 Commentators: Vince McMahon, Jerry Lawler It’s time to wrap up the month and that can’t come soon enough, despite the marginally better show last week.

Monday Night Raw – July 8, 1996: The Other Third Man

Monday Night Raw Date: July 8, 1996 Location: Brown County Expo, Green Bay, Wisconsin Attendance: 4,660 Commentators: Vince McMahon, Jerry Lawler We’re coming up on In Your House IX, which was barely mentioned last week. To be fair though, it’s not like anyone cared about that waste of a show so they might as well […]

In Your House #11 – Buried Alive: Who Needs The Title?

In Your House #11: Buried Alive Date: October 20, 1996 Location: Market Square Arena, Indianapolis, Indiana Attendance: 9,649 Commentators: Vince McMahon, Jerry Lawler, Jim Ross This is another of those shows where there just isn’t much to say. There are only five matches on the card and only two of them are worth much of […]

Monday Night Raw – October 14, 1996: Rock Bottom

Monday Night Raw Date: October 14, 1996 Location: Hersheypark Arena, Hershey, Pennsylvania Attendance: 3,923 Commentators: Kevin Kelly, Jim Ross It’s the go home show for Buried Alive but more importantly than that we have a major showdown with Steve Austin vs. Shawn Michaels in a non-title match. I really don’t think a show needs much […]

Summerslam Count-Up – 1996: For Whom The Bearer Tolls

Summerslam 1996 Date: August 18, 1996 Location: Gund Arena, Cleveland, Ohio Attendance: 17,000 Commentators: Vince McMahon, Jim Ross, Mr. Perfect Things have changed quite a bit since last year. For one thing, the NWO currently has its foot on the WWF’s neck but no one knew how bad it was going to get. Shawn was […]
