The SmarK Rant for Monday Night RAW – 05.27.96

Anyone have experience with the Amazon Fire TV?  I know they don’t have WWE Network on it yet, but apparently it’s a lot more powerful than the Roku Streaming Stick that has been steadily flaking on me for the past year now and it’s not like I have any shortage of devices that can access the Network anyway.  The other problem is that they don’t technically ship to Canada, but there’s ways around that as well.   (Of course, a few years later and not only does the Amazon Fire Stick ship to Canada but I have a couple of them and an Amazon Fire HD tablet as well.  Still no WWE Network app up here, though.)

OK then!  It’s time for a random Patreon request, in this case someone wanting the go-home show for Backlash 2000, which I can easily accommodate.  I had been kind of doing the 2000 shows again off and on but lost interest a while ago.  And hey, if you’d like to become a Patron and earn the ability to influence my reviewing decisions, head on over to the PATREON OF DOOM at and check it out.

(Sorry my friends, but as I noted in Tommy’s Dynamite review last night, TSN bumped Dynamite to another channel and so my DVR didn’t record it and I have to wait for them to put it up on the website later today.  So instead it’s the 96 RAW repost this morning!  And there’s not even a Nitro this week in history.  I feel like I’ve let you all down.)

Mike Reviews – WWF Monday Night Raw 17th March 1997

Hello You!

Seeing as we’re approaching WrestleMania later in the month, I decided to go back and review the go-home show for WrestleMania 13, seeing as it features quite a famous show closing moment. Mania 13 isn’t always well regarded, but it’s got a couple of good matches buried in amongst the early 97 malaise, along with an excellent match between Bret Hart and Steve Austin. I’ve actually reviewed it before and you can read what I thought if you like by clicking right HERE.

Content warning this week?  WTF?  Also, I unlocked an achievement for watching a bunch of episodes of RAW on the Network.  It’s an eventful show and I haven’t even started it yet!  (Oh man, back when I was still watching the Network on TV screens instead of just on my computer all the time.  Now I don’t even bother with the various app versions of it.)
