In this episode of Wrestling War Zone: The Monday Night Wars, JT Rozzero & Chad Campbell dive into WWF In Your House #3. They talk about the Raw Thursday replay mystery, an odd loss for Waylon Mercy, the sad spiraling of Sid, a big night for the Bulldog, Bigelow as a face, the ugly tights of Dean Douglas, the gem that is Hart vs. Lafitte, confusion in the main event and much more.[/size]
So sit back, settle in and join JT and Chad as they work their way through the one and only Monday Night Wrestling War era![/size]
While 1995 was a bad year for the WWF both creatively and at the box office, they had enough talent to succeed if booked correctly. Bam Bam was over huge after the LT match and then turned on by the Million Dollar Corporations, but his momentum was stymied. Sid turning on Shawn was a great angle, but his push was also stymied. Bret Hart had incredible matches with Lafitte and Hakushi and Diesel, and Shawn had great matches with everyone, but there seemed to be no rhyme or reason to the booking. Diesel was over when he destroyed Backlund to win the title, but they made him this smiling, nice guy instead of the cool badass he was. They did absolutely nothing with Lex, and Hakushi and Lafitte were not utilized correctly as well. The talent was there. The booking was atrocious. And Shane Douglas was someone they didn’t need to bring in. He was a complete waste.
