This was in my suggested viewing videos on YouTube tonight.
I happen to live not far from the Stabler Arena in Bethlehem, PA (in fact, my aunt and cousin worked there and I often had front row seats to WWF events, including live Raws, and always got backstage to meet/take photos with the Superstars).
Apparently, this was during a time when WWF was thinking of running WCW as a separate entity. Shane Helms, Lance Storm, and Bill DeMott (Boy, what a line up for people who are used to Sting, Ric Flair and Goldberg) appear in the video as participating in the “company’s” relaunch.
That’s actually a pretty good promo (and hey, got to give them credit for at least promoting the younger talent).
I think it would’ve been way more interesting than the horribly stupid, lame Invasion storyline we ended up with.
What’s up with the announcer saying “The WCW”?
Bret Hart used to call it that all the time and it drove me up the wall (no, not up The Wall- that would be another situation altogether…).
