Rank #1: Episode 54: Vince McMahon Fires Shawn Michaels!

Podcast cover
Read more

December 28th, 1998: Because Shawn Michaels refused to help out Shane McMahon last week, Vince McMahon vows to fire him live on "Raw" tonight only five short weeks into HBK's tenure as commissioner! "The Road Dogg" Jesse James is initially booked to defend his Hardcore Title against Val Venis, but Vince replaces Val with Mankind in an attempt to drive a wedge between DX and Foley. Two months after vacating the Intercontinental Title, Triple-H gets a chance to regain the belt when he takes on reigning champion Ken Shamrock. In another DX vs. Corporation match, X-Pac puts his European Title on the line against The Big Boss Man. And in a third match between the two stables, DX member Billy Gunn goes one-on-one with the newest member of The Corporation: Kane. The newly-named Pretty Mean Sisters seek to continue their torment of Mark Henry, but "The World's Strongest Man" receives some unexpected back-up from his "girlfriend" Chyna. Sable is scheduled to defend her WWF Women's Championship against..... The Spider Lady? Owen Hart & Jeff Jarrett team up to face the unlikely team of Steve Blackman & Goldust. Edge steps into the ring with a still-covered-in-blood Al Snow, who apparently hasn't bathed since he received a bloodbath 13 days ago. Plus, Shane helps Vince train for the Royal Rumble match in an amusing montage, Dan "The Beast" Severn makes a surprise return, and an unsuspecting Dennis Knight comes to the arena because "He" told him to be there. Meanwhile over in WCW, Kevin Nash ends Goldberg's winning streak at "Starrcade 1998" and Ric Flair challenges Eric Bischoff on "Nitro" for control of the company! Enjoying the Podcast?

December 29th, 1997: An injury to Triple-H puts his European Title match with Owen Hart in jeopardy, but Commissioner Slaughter has a back-up plan involving Hunter's pal, WWF Champion Shawn Michaels. "Stone Cold" Steve Austin introduces The Artist Formerly Known As Goldust to Crapper 3:16. Cactus Jack returns to battle The New Age Outlaws, and he has enlisted the help of an old friend. Jim Cornette is given airtime on WWF television to tell us how much the WWF sucks. The Undertaker surprisingly helps Kane fend off a group of "Shotgun Saturday Night" rejects. Taka Michinoku teams with a WWF Hall of Famer to battle the father-son duo of Jerry Lawler and Brian Christopher. Marc Mero continues to request that Sable not show her milkwagons to the audience, which draws the ire of the former Salvatore Sincere. Plus, Ken Shamrock continues to job out The Nation of Domination, and Jim Ross lets us know that Mike Tyson is coming to "Wrestlemania"...... maybe. Enjoying the Podcast?

Rank #3: Episode 37: "SummerSlam 1998" / "Raw" Mega-Episode! (w/William Renken from New Blood Rising Podcast)

August 30th / September 5th, 1998: The Highway To Hell stops here because it is finally time for "SummerSlam 1998!" And for a pay-per-view this massive, we needed to enlist a special guest: New Blood Rising Podcast host William Renken! What happens at "SummerSlam" and the following Saturday night episode of "Raw"? Join us and find out! "SummerSlam 1998" Card: WWF Champion "Stone Cold" Steve Austin vs. The Undertaker WWF Intercontinental Champion The Rock vs. Triple-H in a Ladder Match WWF Tag Team Champion Mankind (without Kane) defends his title(s?) against The New Age Outlaws WWF European Champion D'Lo Brown vs. Val Venis Ken Shamrock vs. Owen Hart in a Lion's Den Match Jeff Jarrett vs. X-Pac in a Hair vs. Hair Match Marc Mero & Jacqueline vs. Sable & a mystery partner The Oddities vs. Kaientai September 5th, 1998 "Saturday Night Raw": Vince McMahon comes up with an evil scheme to get the WWF Title taken off his arch-nemesis, and that plan apparently includes making The Undertaker and Kane incredibly angry throughout the entire night. The New Age Outlaws defend their newly-won Tag Team Titles against The Rock & Mark Henry, but Chyna seeks to make The Nation pay for their actions last week on "Raw." D'Lo Brown puts his European Title on the line against X-Pac in a precursor to what will become a pretty solid feud throughout the fall of 1998. In a match which somehow main events this show, the new-look Jeff Jarrett goes head-to-head with Scorpio. Val Venis squares off with Vader because you can never have too many V's. The Oddities go up against L.O.D. 2000 and Droz, but Hawk's personal demons continue to plague him. Ken Shamrock & Steve Blackman have apparently patched up their differences, so they unite to face The Disciples of Apocalypse. Edge takes on Marc Mero while the commentators continue to speculate about Edge's past with Gangrel. Southern Justice do battle with The Headbangers because these are apparently two of the strongest tag teams on the roster at the moment. Too Much and Los Boricuas have a match, but the most noteworthy aspect of it is the fact that Jesus Castillo is wearing atrocious dad jeans. Tiger Ali Singh continues his humiliation of greedy Americans by having a sardine-chomping Babu make out with a young woman from the crowd. Plus, Al Snow gets a sitdown interview with Jim Ross despite the fact that he and Head are supposed to be gone from the company. Enjoying the Podcast?

Rank #4: Episode 53: Shane McMahon's First Match!

Podcast cover
Read more

December 21st, 1998: Vince McMahon leaves the arena to go train for the Royal Rumble, and so he leaves his son Shane in charge for the night. However, that may prove to be a mistake as an out-of-his-element Shane ends up booking himself into his very first wrestling match against Mankind. Triple-H & X-Pac team up to face The Rock and a man who is also making his in-ring debut: Test! Mark Henry & D'Lo Brown are scheduled to face The Headbangers, but "Sexual Chocolate" may not be able to resist the advances of Terri Runnels and Jacqueline. Ken Shamrock puts his Intercontinental Title on the line against "Badd Ass" Billy Gunn.... or does he? WWF Hardcore Champion The Big Boss Man squares off with "The Road Dogg" in what is supposed to be a non-title match, but Jesse James may be able to convince him to put the belt up for grabs. Five weeks after being pushed off the TitanTron, Road Warrior Hawk returns to the WWF and reveals some dark secrets about his relationship with Droz. Even though The Blue Blazer was unmasked last week, the caped superhero returns to seek revenge on Steve Blackman. Gangrel steps into the ring with Al Snow, and a post-match "bloodbath" may cause Al to go completely insane (well okay, more than usual). The Acolytes take on J.O.B. Squad members Bob Holly & Scorpio in what turns out to be the final "Raw" match for the man formerly known as Flash Funk. Plus, Jeff Jarrett rants about what pisses him off, "Classy" Freddie Blassie dresses up as a perverted mall Santa Claus for some reason, and The Corporation shockingly adds a new member to its growing ranks! Meanwhile in WCW, we get the final episode of "Nitro" before the controversial "Starrcade 1998" pay-per-view, with the highlight of the show being Scott Steiner mocking someone for using steroids (yes, seriously).

Rank #5: Episode 19: DX Invades WCW! (w/Troy Boesen from The Geek & Gamer Guild)

Podcast cover
Read more

April 27th, 1998: It's the night after "Unforgiven," and special guest co-host Troy Boesen from The Geek & Gamer Guild Podcast is here to recap a historic episode of "Monday Night Raw!" In one of the most famous moments in WWE history, D-Generation-X seeks to take the fight directly to World Championship Wrestling by invading a nearby taping of "Nitro." Later in the night, Tag Team Champions The New Age Outlaws battle Skull & 8-Ball in a non-title match while Triple-H issues an open challenge for his European Title. Vince McMahon considers firing WWF Champion "Stone Cold" Steve Austin for his actions the previous night but instead he puts him into a title match against The Artist Formerly Known As Goldust, much to the chagrin of Dude Love. Ken Shamrock & Owen Hart take on The Rock & Mark Henry, but a shocking swerve results in one of the competitors being badly injured. The Undertaker faces (of all people) Barry Windham in The Dead Man's first match on "Raw" in four months. After the match, Paul Bearer proposes a truce to 'Taker and delivers a shocking revelation about his relationship to Kane. Sable finally decides to stick up for herself by challenging Marc Mero to a match on "Raw" two weeks from now because potential spousal abuse = ratings! Jeff Jarrett goes one-on-one with Bradshaw as Club Kamikaze continues to make life difficult for the future JBL. Terry Funk & 2 Cold Scorpio square off with The Headbangers in a match where the winning team receives a shot at the WWF Tag Team Titles. This episode is almost two and a half hours long but, much like Val Venis, we refuse to apologize for the length. Enjoying the Podcast?

Rank #6: Episode 25: The New Age Outlaws Outsmart The Competition!

Podcast cover
Read more

June 8th, 1998: Thanks to his charitable endeavors, Vince McMahon will be honored with a Humanitarian of the Year Award, and he's feeling so generous that he even invites "Stone Cold" Steve Austin to join the ceremony. However, The Undertaker is still looking to have a face-to-face conversation with the boss, and he's willing to disrupt "Raw" as much as possible in order to get what he wants. "Summerslam" will take place in New York City two months from now, so the WWF sent D-Generation-X out into the streets of The Big Apple, where Triple-H proceeds to bust out several offensive accents. Later in the night, The New Age Outlaws are ordered to defend their WWF Tag Team Titles against L.O.D. 2000 and The Disciples of Apocalypse in a Triple Threat Match, but the Outlaws hatch a brilliant plan to get the better of their opponents. In our first King of the Ring Qualifying Match, Ken Shamrock takes on Kama, whose Nation of Domination pals are banned from ringisde. In our second qualifier, Owen Hart goes one-on-one with Scorpio in what turns out to be a very solid match. And in our third qualifier, Dan "The Beast" Severn squares off with D'Lo Brown, with the finish of the match being the launching point for D'Lo's rise to prominence in the WWF. Jeff Jarrett & Marc Mero team up to face the opponents they each beat last week: Faarooq & Steve Blackman. Val Venis takes on Dustin Runnels, who is making his first apperance on "Raw" in three weeks. Mark Henry and Vader go head-to-head in an attempt to figure out who is the biggest 400-pound jobber on the roster. Darren Drozdov has a match with Chainz because, well, sometimes you just have to fill three minutes of TV time. Plus, Al Snow continues to seek a meeting with Vince McMahon, we get an Edge vignette which provides the audio for his future theme music, and Sable gets a tribute video because she is most definitely gone from the WWF forever. Meanwhile over on "Nitro," a famous trouble-making basketball player skips practice before Game 4 of the NBA Finals to hang out with Hulk Hogan! Enjoying the Podcast?

Rank #7: Episode 34: The DX Split!

Podcast cover
Read more

August 10th, 1998: WWF Tag Team Champions "Stone Cold" Steve Austin & The Undertaker put their belts on the line in a massive Four Corners Match against Kane & Mankind, The New Age Outlaws, and The Rock & Owen Hart. Val Venis is joined by (ugh) John Wayne Bobbitt so he can explain what happened last week when Mr. Yamaguchi-San attempted to "choppy-choppy his pee-pee." The tension within D-Generation-X continues to mount, and all five members of the group may decide that they would be better off if there was a "DX Split." Jeff Jarrett has now ditched Tennessee Lee as well as his country singer gimmick, and he debuts his newest weapon: a guitar with the phrase "Don't Piss Me Off" written on it. L.O.D. 2000 is scheduled to face Southern Justice, but Hawk's personal demons resurface and put the match in jeopardy. The Brawl For All continues with two more match-ups that no one cares about: Bradshaw vs. Marc Mero and Darren Drozdov vs. Savio Vega. The Godfather and Vader are booked to go head-to-head...... but Vader may opt to spend the night with The Godfather's ladies instead. Luna Vachon faces Jacqueline in what is surprisingly the first one-on-one women's match on "Raw" in several years. Plus, Dustin Runnels issues a statement from his new family-friendly organization Evangelists Against Television, Movies, & Entertainment (wait, how would you abbreviate that?). Meanwhile over in WCW, Jay Leno successfully takes Hulk Hogan to the mat with an armbar! Enjoying the Podcast? E-mail us at rawattitudepodcast@gmail.com or Tweet us @RawAttitudePod!

June 15th, 1998: "Stone Cold" Steve Austin accuses Vince McMahon of masterminding the attack on him last week, but The Boss instead points the finger at an unlikely culprit. Paul Bearer then challenges Austin and The Undertaker to face Kane and Mankind tonight.......... inside Hell in a Cell! We get the first ever Tag Team Royal Rumble, with the winning team becoming the #1 contenders for The New Age Outlaws' WWF Tag Team Titles. In a King of the Ring qualifying match, The Rock goes one-on-one with the criminally misused Vader. In the second KOTR qualifier, we get a very interesting match-up as DX members Triple-H and X-Pac are forced to go head-to-head! A newly religious Dustin Runnels faces Marc Mero, who gets quite a big surprise when Mr. McMahon reinstates the previously fired Sable. Owen Hart & Mark Henry team up to do battle with former UFC competitors / awesome bad-asses Ken Shamrock & Dan "The Beast" Severn. Val Venis takes on Chainz in what turns out to be the final WWF match for the leader of The Disciples of Apocalypse. "Double-J" Jeff Jarrett squares off with Darren Drozdov (perhaps he should be called "Double-D"?). Avatar makes his return to the WWF to confront Jerry "The King" Lawler over the fact that Al Snow still has not gotten the meeting which was promised to him. Plus, we get our final Edge vignette before his debut next week, and an underwhelming tag team makes its final appearance on "Raw."

July 6th, 1998: The Undertaker, Kane, and Mankind all feel that they should be the #1 contender for "Stone Cold" Steve Austin's WWF Championship, so Vince McMahon puts them into a triple threat match to determine who will get the title shot. In one of the more famous moments in Attitude Era history, D-Generation-X dresses up as The Nation of Domination because blackface is apparently still acceptable in 1998. The Brawl For All continues with two more match-ups: Hawk vs. Droz and Savio Vega vs. Brakus (who you probably never knew existed). Ken Shamrock squares off with Jeff Jarrett, but a former King of the Ring surprisingly returns and seeks to injure "The World's Most Dangerous Man." The Headbangers face The Disciples of Apocalypse, who are now led by their new manager Paul Ellering. Val Venis takes on Dustin Runnels, but Kaientai and Yamaguchi-San are looking to make Val pay for flirting with Mrs. Yamaguchi-San last week. Hardcore legend Terry Funk wrestles his last ever match on "Monday Night Raw" against the chest-protector-wearing D'Lo Brown. Sable and Jacqueline get into a "Jerry Springer"-esque war of words, and Jackie decides that the only way for them to settle their feud is with a bikini contest at "Fully Loaded." Vader goes one-on-one with Bradshaw in a match-up that would have been 1,000 times more entertaining if it had taken place in The Brawl For All. Meanwhile over on the TNT Network, WCW pulls off perhaps the biggest "Nitro" in history as Hulk Hogan defends his WCW World Heavyweight Championship against the undefeated Goldberg in front of 41,000 fans at The Georgia Dome!

Rank #10: Episode 22: The Debut of Val Venis! (w/Martin Dixon from The New Blood Rising Podcast)

Podcast cover
Read more

May 18th, 1998: With only two weeks to go before "Over the Edge," big things are happening on "Raw" so we had to bring in Martin Dixon from The New Blood Rising to help break it all down! On this very day, World Championship Wrestling filed a frivolous lawsuit against the WWF, and we have all of the amusing details. Vince McMahon, Pat Patterson, and Gerald Brisco claim they are all willing to fight "Stone Cold" Steve Austin tonight...... unfortunately, Austin is banned from the building. Dustin Runnels is given a chance to main event "Over the Edge" if he can defeat Dude Love, but he will have to work for 30 days without receiving a paycheck if he loses. Attitude Era mainstay Val Venis finally makes his in-ring WWF debut in what turns out to be a bit of a clunky match against Scorpio. Paul Bearer and Kane head to a local medical center for some DNA testing in an attempt to definitively prove that Bearer is Kane's father, but we are only able to focus on the fact that Kane is wearing a jacket with neon purple sleeves. The DX/Nation of Domination rivalry continues to intensify as The New Age Outlaws defend their WWF Tag Team Titles against The Rock & Owen Hart. Sable has ended her relationship with Marc Mero, but "The Marvelous One" is not willing to let her break her ironclad managerial contract. L.O.D. 2000 continues their feud with The Disciples of Apocalypse to the delight of no one. Kaientai take on The Headbangers in tag team action because sometimes you just need to fill five minutes of TV time. Fearing for his safety, Jerry "The King" Lawler enlists the help of a mystery man under a sheet to act as his personal bodyguard. Meanwhile over in WCW, Eric Bischoff defeats Vince McMahon via countout and we get one of the most awesome moments in the history of the company! Enjoying the Podcast?

In one of the more infamous segments in the history of "Raw," Road Warrior Hawk climbs the TitanTron and threatens to kill himself on live television as Animal, Droz, and Paul Ellering attempt to calm him down. X-Pac & The New Age Outlaws team up to battle The Oddities, whose alliance with The Insane Clown Posse may be coming to an end. WWF Intercontinental Champion Ken Shamrock calls out The Big Boss Man because he has cost Shamrock several matches over the past few weeks. The unlikely pairing of Goldust & Steve Blackman join forces to take on Jeff Jarrett & The Blue Blazer.... but who exactly is inside the Blazer costume? Val Venis steps into the ring with Mark Henry, although "The World's Strongest Man" appears to be more interested in the returning Chyna. The Godfather and Steven Regal are scheduled to have a match, but "The Real Man's Man" may not be able to pass up the pimp's offer to spend the night with three of his finest hoes. Plus, Mankind seeks revenge on Vince McMahon, Kane wanders around the arena for no apparent reason, and The WWE Network leaves a homophobic slur completely uncensored. Enjoying the Podcast?

The WWF debuts a brand new, ill-advised tournament of legitimate fights called The Brawl For All, and our first two contests are Steve Blackman vs. Marc Mero and Bradshaw vs. Mark Canterbury. We get a Triple Threat "King of Kings Match" between reigning King of the Ring Ken Shamrock and former Kings of the Ring Triple-H and Owen Hart (spoiler: despite it being called "King of Kings," the winner of the match may not be who you think!). Darren Drozdov goes one-on-one against a man making his WWF debut: Steven Regal! L.O.D. 2000 seek to reverse their losing streak by bringing back their long-time manager "Precious" Paul Ellering, but their mentor has an unexpected surprise for them. Val Venis takes on Kaientai member Dick Togo, although Val appears to be more interested in Yamaguchi-San's wife. Plus, Vince McMahon gives a warning to The Undertaker, Dustin Runnels continues to preach the word of God, and Sable refuses to tell us about her new role in the company. Enjoying the Podcast?

Podcast cover

April 13th, 1998: After an 84-week losing streak, "Raw" finally defeats "Nitro" in The Monday Night Wars, so we had to have Andy, Adam, and Jason from The Questionable Endeavor Network on the show to discuss this monumental event! "Stone Cold" Steve Austin wants to defend his WWF Title live on "Raw," and he hand-picks his opponent to be.......... Vince McMahon. The Undertaker sends a message to Kane by beating up several jobbers, but will it be enough to lure The Big Red Machine into a face-to-face confrontation? Faarooq calls out the entire Nation of Domination, but this time he has some friends to watch his back. Owen Hart goes one-on-one with Billy Gunn in a match which is thankfully given quite a bit of TV time. Terry Funk needs a new tag team partner now that Cactus Jack has hung up his boots, so he introduces us to someone who will "put Funk in our faces." The New Midnight Express take on the bad-ass dream team of Ken Shamrock & Steve Blackman, with the highlight being a pre-match stare-down between Shamrock and Dan Severn. Luna Vachon cuts a bonkers promo where she references having her period for some reason, and then she challenges Sable to face her tonight instead of waiting for "Unforgiven." Jeff Jarrett squares off with Taka Michinoku as leaflets advertising his upcoming concert fall from the sky. Skull & 8-Ball take on Savio Vega & Jesus Castillo in a Chain Match while D-Generation-X lurks at ringside. Plus, we go on the set with Val Venis, a long-time veteran wrestles his final match on "Raw," and a chair magically walks all by itself! Enjoying the Podcast?

May 11th, 1998: Vince McMahon stacks the deck even further against "Stone Cold" Steve Austin by giving him a mystery tag team partner in his match tonight as well as appointing several guest officials for his match against Dude Love at "Over the Edge." DX continues their invasion of WCW by showing up at their headquarters in Atlanta, and Triple-H later goes one-on-one with his rival Owen Hart. In a rare Husband vs. Wife match-up, Marc Mero and Sable intend to finally settle their differences. Finally fed up with the Goldust character, Dustin Runnels burns his costume and pledges not to take any more crap from the establishment. An ECW wrestler surprisingly shows up at the WWF's door, and he has brought a friend with him. The Undertaker seeks to get some revenge on Jerry "The King" Lawler while Paul Bearer continues to insist that he is actually Kane's father. Jeff Jarrett goes head-to-head with Faarooq as "Double-J's" nemesis Steve Blackman lurks at ringside. Club Kamikaze have now been renamed Kaientai, and their debut "Raw" match is a 3-on-2 encounter against Terry Funk & Scorpio. Vader takes on NWA member Barry Windham in what turns out to be the final televised match of Windham's not-so-prestigious WWF career. Hawk battles Skull in singles action as the L.O.D.O.A. rivalry continues. Plus, we get a terrible Edge vignette and The WWE Network edits out a special commercial! Meanwhile over on "Nitro," Eric Bischoff lays down a challenge to Vince McMahon, and Diamond Dallas Page provides us with what is likely the most unintentionally hilarious promo of his career!

Podcast cover

February 21st, 1998: Special guest Adam from The Rundown Wrestling Podcast swings by to discuss a rare Saturday episode of "Raw" and the results of the "No Way Out of Texas" pay-per-view. Chyna is threatening to sue Steve Austin for his recent actions, but "Stone Cold" does not seem to be very remorseful. Cactus Jack and Chainsaw Charlie take on Marc Mero and The Artist Formerly Known As Goldust in the main event as the rivalry between Sable and Luna escalates. Owen Hart defends his European Title against Jeff Jarrett in a match which is actually quite enjoyable. The Rock attempts to soothe things over with his Nation of Domination pals by presenting them with gifts, and an irritated Faarooq then squares off with the undefeated Steve Blackman. The slumping Legion of Doom go up against The Quebecers while WWF Tag Team Champions The New Age Outlaws look to cause more mischief. Ken Shamrock battles Sniper as The Truth Commission continues to squabble internally. NWA Tag Team Champions The Rock 'n Roll Express put their belts on the line against The Headbangers in a match which is contested under NWA rules. Taka Michinoku and Aguila battle Brian Christopher and Pirata Morgan (and yes, he is a wrestling pirate). Plus, Michael P.S. Hayes (or is it Dok Hendrix?) returns to his home state in order to act as a guest ring announcer, but things do not exactly go as planned for the recent WWE Hall of Fame inductee.

January 5th, 1998: "Stone Cold" Steve Austin is a marked man heading into the upcoming Royal Rumble, so he decides to preemptively take out his competition. Jim Cornette seeks to bring "real wrestling" to the WWF by brokering a deal with the National Wrestling Alliance. Owen Hart goes one-on-one with Savio Vega, but DX has a plan for "The Black Hart." Later, Shawn Michaels calls out The Undertaker, presumably thinking there was no way The Dead Man would actually show up. Kane has apparently abandoned Paul Bearer after three whole months of them being united. Marc Mero and Tom Brandi finally go head-to-head, but Sable takes the majority of the bumps. The Artist Formerly Known As Goldust performs in blackface as Vince McMahon presumably laughs uproariously backstage. The New Age Outlaws take on The Headbangers in a match which features one of the most unique ball-shots in wrestling history. The Truth Commission and The Disciples of Apocalypse continue to feud with each other, to the delight of no one. Plus, can Ken Shamrock defeat a member of The Nation of Domination for the third week in a row? Also, a pre-taped appearance from a real-life murderer! Enjoying the Podcast?

March 30th, 1998 "Monday Night Raw": Vince McMahon presents "Stone Cold" with an ultimatum that will come to define their relationship for the next several years. Triple-H thinks Shawn Michaels has "dropped the ball," so he forms a new version of D-Generation-X with two current roster members and one of his pals who is returning from WCW. The Rock & Faarooq take on Ken Shamrock & Steve Blackman, and the resulting fallout completely changes The Nation of Domination. We get the debut vignette of one of the most controversial superstars from The Attitude Era, and he wants the world to know that he is coming. Paul Bearer challenges The Undertaker to a rematch on behalf of Kane, but this time he wants it to be......... an Inferno Match. In a rematch from "WrestleMania," Cactus Jack & Chainsaw Charlie go up against The New Age Outlaws in a Steel Cage Match for the WWF Tag Team Titles. The new-look Legion of Doom square off with two members of Los Boricuas, so you can probably imagine how that goes. The Headbangers put their NWA Tag Team Titles on the line against The New Midnight Express, and Jim Cornette brings a former UFC competitor into his NWA stable. Luna Vachon wants a rematch with Sable at "Unforgiven," and she invents a new type of match which will ultimately end up being trotted out quite a few times during The Attitude Era. Marc Mero goes one-on-one with Taka Michinoku, but some associates from Taka's past appear to harbor a grudge toward him. "Double-J" Jeff Jarrett takes on Aguila while Tennessee Lee joins the commentary team and entertains the world.

January 26th, 1998: "Stone Cold" Steve Austin invites Mike Tyson to join him at the upcoming "No Way Out of Texas" pay-per-view, while Tyson's promoter Don King botches his way through a pre-taped promo. Owen Hart gets a European Title match against Triple-H.... sorta. Shawn Michaels proposes an alternate "Wrestlemania 14" main event. The New Age Outlaws take on Cactus Jack and Chainsaw Charlie in a match where a great deal of wackiness ensues. "The World's Strongest Man" squares off against "The World's Most Dangerous Man" in a battle of misleading nicknames. Vader goes one-on-one with The Artist Formerly Known as Goldust in a "Royal Rumble" rematch, but Kane may have a say in the outcome. Jeff Jarrett and Barry Windham take on The Legion of Doom (spoiler: the losing team no-sells the pinfall, so you can probably guess who that is). A montage of Taka Michinoku's best moments segues to a match between.... two other cruiserweights. The Headbangers go head-to-head with The Quebecers because... who knows? Enjoying the Podcast?

April 20th, 1998: With only six days to go before "Unforgiven," can the WWF continue to build momentum after having ended WCW's ratings winning streak last week? Dude Love gives an explanation as to why he attacked Steve Austin, but "Stone Cold" has his own conspiracy theory. Later on in the night, The Dude takes on the once-defeated Steve Blackman....... with suspicious results. The Undertaker plans to meet Kane in the cemetery where his parents are buried, but The Big Red Machine and Paul Bearer turn the tables on him in a rather cringe-worthy manner. Sable lets the world know that she will not be embarrassed if Luna Vachon strips her naked during their Evening Gown Match on Sunday..... so apparently that means she's okay with losing. Triple-H promises his DX comrades that he will literally piss all over the audience, but Owen Hart, L.O.D. 2000, and Sunny remain unamused. Faarooq battles Kama in a Long Island Street Fight with both wrestlers' entourages banned from ringside. The New Midnight Express compete in tag team action against Terry Funk and....... T.C.S. Funk? Dan "The Beast" Severn takes on Headbanger Mosh in a repetitive match where Severn introduces the world to the concept of Suplex City. The Artist Formerly Known As Goldust goes one-on-one with Bradshaw in a match-up of two guys who are somehow still employed by WWE in the year 2016.
