Shawn and Ahmed reveal Sid as their new partner, much to Cornette's chagrin. Sid does a great promo, but after the Hogan turn, it says a lot that this was the best they could do for a big moment (although I know Raw was a few weeks in the can at this point). Cornette gets in a subtle shot at Warrior: "They've replaced the gas chamber with the electric chair!"

Post-produced angle since they obviously couldn't get a live crowd for this. Shawn and Ahmed unveil Sycho Sid as their replacement. Not a downgrade by any means, but yeah, the taping of Raw for weeks at a time was never more glaringly flawed in this new business environment than it was here.

I liked the way they teased it was Perfect throughout the episode and even only had Sid's hair showing from the rear at the start of the promo. Played the hand they were dealt as best they could.

What the hell is Ahmed saying ?

Sid comeback was not exactly exciting to me back then, but he was about to have his best stint ever, as a babyface (his best role anyway, his heel comeback in WCW in 99 was rotten).

Corny's selling of the unveiling is great, as is his promo.

Sid is announced as the new partner for the PPV and he gives a spirited promo to try to salvage a bad situation.

Sid's promo is awesome. Sid at his best is really entertaining because he's got a great look with tons of charisma. Cornette sells Sid's return like death. He does his best to put this over as a big deal. I like Sid much more than Warrior so I'll take this replacement.
