WWF Monday night RAW review: January 20th, 1997
- RAW IS RETRO. Chaos is the synonym of stability in this weird upside-down world of the WWF.
The 20th January 1997 edition of RAW is a follow-up to the 1997 Royal Rumble Pay-Per-View. For those who have no idea what went down during The Royal Rumble can check out my exclusive recap by clicking here.
The toughest S.O.B on the roster, Stone Cold - Steve Austin won the 30-Man Royal Rumble match, and the Heartbreak Kid, Shawn Michaels became the new WWF World Heavyweight Champion by defeating Psycho Sid in the main event, live from HBK’s own hometown- San Antonio, Texas.
Before we begin, do remember that things are about to get chaotic. Business is about to pick up, and things are going to shape-up accordingly.
It is a brand new week and there are lots of things to talk about. So without wasting any further time, let’s begin—
1) Owen Hart & The British Bulldog (w/ Clarence Mason) vs. Doug Furnas & Phil Lafon.
2) Farooq (w/ Nation of Domination) vs. Bart Gunn.
3) The Undertaker vs. Stone Cold Steve Austin.
