The SmarK Rant for WWF Sunday Night Heat – 07.18.99

Well, I’m down to the last couple of episodes, so we might as well just get through these in case they decide to torture me further by adding more of them.

And hey, should you want to document my torture, I’d like to remind you yet again that my entire archive is available in a real-time updated OneDrive form with everything I’ve ever written (or at least everything I’ve been able to reconstruct, minus notable missing stuff like Star Trek DVD reviews), which you can access by sending me $20 via PayPal to [email protected] and specifying the e-mail address you’d like me to send the link to. The support is always greatly appreciated, especially when it comes time for domain name renewals and such.

Taped from wherever RAW was taped that week.

Your hosts are Kevin Kelly & Michael Cole

Only 3 episodes left on the Network, but I’ve been waiting for this one for a while.

The opening video package recaps the life story of Kane for some reason. Good luck making sense of THAT one. Anyway, this is supposed to make us REALLY excited to see a Kane v. Big Show match, apparently.

Six episodes left. I can do this.

Previously on RAW, Vince and Shane challenge CEO Austin to a ladder match with all the stock options hanging in a briefcase above the ring. I’m kind of disappointed that’s not how it worked when they filed their IPO a couple of years later.

LIVE from Nashville, TN.

For those who think RAW is terrible now, this one is the followup to the HIGHER POWER episode of RAW. So as a reminder, Vince unmasked as the mastermind all along, and Steve Austin was made into the new CEO of the company by Linda and they’re just BLOWING past that whole thing and moving on, baby.

Taped from wherever.

Aw. Hopefully all the fat, out of shape sweathogs in heaven are keeping the noise down for him.

And then we get a promo video for the PPV featuring Rock’s funeral for Austin. Well that’s unfortunate.

Last time on RAW: Kane and X-Pac put aside their clashing color schemes and win the WWF tag titles from Owen Hart & Jeff Jarrett and become the original Vince Russo “Wacky Tag Team Partners Who Hate Each Other”. RSPW is still waiting for that alternate outfit for Kane in D-X green, I’m afraid.

I know. This show and myself have a complex and heated relationship. I hate watching it, and it doesn’t even do particularly impressive numbers on the blog. But it’s quick and easy to recap and now that I’ve started, I only have to make it to July and then it’s DONE! At least as far as the Network is concerned.

So yeah, on RAW, Undertaker tried to sacrifice the Big Bossman on a giant cross and got arrested as a result, which seems like some kind of religious persecution to me. Also, Rock lets us know that Paul Wight apparently carries a card that declares him to be a roody poo candy ass. Why would he want to carry that kind of ID? No wonder he changed his name.

Given that I’m currently knee-deep in the infuriating Dirty John on Netflix, I’m starting to feel like an abused spouse who keeps crawling back to this show. But, I mean, if I just blow through the entire run of Superstars in one shot, I won’t have anything left to watch.

Also I think there’s a thing that happens on this show. So there’s that.

Ugh this show annoys me SO MUCH but it’s a quick recap and there’s usually material to talk about. So we’ll soldier on for now until Superstars replaces it as my go-to quickie Network recap.

So on the episode of RAW after St. Valentine’s Day Massacre, Mankind lost the WWF title back to the Rock, and X-Pac lost the European title to Shane McMahon in a title change I had blocked out of my mind. Also, some guy named “Paul Wight” is now working for Vince.

Live from Memphis, TN, and this is the pre-game show for St. Valentine’s Day Massacre.

We get highlights of the god-awful Skydome RAW where Vince pinned Austin to win the gauntlet match to start, which hopefully isn’t setting the tone for this show.

Your hosts are Kevin Kelly & Shane McMahon

Well, Andy has already claimed Christmas Star Wars for today, so I guess I’ll trudge back to Sunday Night Heat tonight. Thankfully there’s lots more Hidden Gems to go around this week.

It’s the pre-show for Royal Rumble 99! Sadly I don’t think I’ll have time to redo it this weekend.
