The SmarK Rant for Monday Night RAW – 09.16.96
OK, one week left of this shitty taping before we REALLY hit rock bottom of the promotion next week. Man, remember a while ago when I said if we can get through the post-WM doldrums period with Shawn as champion it would pick up in August? This is NOT picking up.
Also, yeah I’m skipping Fall Brawl in the chronology. You guys can live-stream it one night if you want, it’s a good show and well worth watching. I will likely redo Mindgames, however, because it’s much shorter.
Taped…again…from Wheeling WV
Your hosts are Kevin Kelly, Jerry Lawler and the increasingly insane Jim Ross. According to the Observer, this was a feature, not a bug, as despite spending 90% of their commentary time on the stupid Fake Razor angle, the WWF felt like the backlash would be too negative towards the company, so they decided to make JR the fall guy by having him portrayed as the lying carny who is opposing the company mandate.
