Been going through 97 Raws and PPV’s on the network. And I know that the ratings didn’t reflect it at the time, but man, there’s a lot of good stuff there. Stone Cold. Bret Hart’s heel run and the Hart Foundation. The Rock’s heel turn. Mankind vs HHH’s first feud. The formation of DX. Just lots of good stuff here.
So two questions:
1. Do you find 97 WWF to be a little underrated?
2. I know attendance went up while ratings stayed the same. Was this a case of being more entertaining to your own fans but nothing to really pull in new fans?
