John Pollock and Wai Ting look back at WWF Raw Is War and WCW Monday Nitro from July 13, 1998 in this special double review.
As the two companies traded leads in the Monday Night Wars, Raw continued the mystery of whether The Undertaker was in CAHOOTS with Kane ahead of a scheduled tag team match with Steve Austin at Fully Loaded, while The Nation continued their heated rivalry with D-Generation X following an infamous parody segment involving Jason Sensation.
Nitro brought us the fallout from Goldberg’s first WCW title win the week prior, while Hollywood Hogan looked to blame fellow nWo member Scott Hall for the defeat.
This edition of the Rewind-A-Wai is presented by Espresso Executive Producer, Daniel Holmes.
