The SmarK Rant for Monday Night RAW – 05.19.97
Doing the 98 RAWs made me realize that I kind of dropped the 97 shows when it was getting really good, so let’s jump back to May of 97 and all the crazy stuff therein. It’s immediately a different world, with Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels running the show, only to be completely gone a year later.
When we last left off with these because people were like “Ugh, enough 1997 nostalgia already!”… https://blogofdoom.com/index.php/2017/11/08/the-smark-rant-for-wwf-monday-night-raw-05-12-97/
First up, we see the aftermath of Shawn superkicking Bret out of the wheelchair, which wasn’t aired due to them going over the time limit, as Hart Foundation tries to throw Shawn off the stage, only to have Austin make the save.
Live from Mobile, AL, which drew an all-time record 6200 people.
Your hosts are JR & King, with Vince coming in at the start of the second hour.
