I haven't watched many of the RAWs with extra footage, but I did watch the episode with Austin and Undertaker vs Kane and Mankind in the Hell in a Cell and after the show went off the air, Austin actually scored a pinfall to end the match instead of just the brawl to end the show without a finish.  Kind of like how we finally saw the end of the Hart Foundation vs Strike Force from the Main Event episode, where it seems they tried to squeak the finish in before going off the air but still missed the pinfall by a minute.  I like those kind of little things that would've never seen the light without the network.


Am I wrong in assuming the end of Harts/Strike Force seemed hyped as a potential hidden gem all these years? Like it had gone on for a 15-30 minute classic after the show had gone off the air?

And when you could finally see the pinfall, it was pretty much seconds after the last of the Main Event credits rolled.

Or was it just complaining about seemingly lost forever footage, no matter how insignificant the length was, or complaining that the finish was never aired, despite not being a title change?

Funny as long as I've been trading (which seems like forever), the end of that match not being available never came across my radar as being valued or important like other "lost treasures" have been mythologized over the years.

Might just be me though.

Yeah, it was definitely moreso the latter--a curiosity. No way would they be busting their asses after such a monumental WWF title match. There's also the fact that the WWF never did the "We're out of time!" show-closer, so it stood out more.

Bruce is wrong. Those Extra Attitude segments were not shown on the website at the time they took place. First time theyve been seen is on the Network

I think he means people would have to go on the website to see the results.

I really hope the off air segments make the upload. Raw had so many and quite a few on Heat were filmed as highlights at times were shown on Raw so no excuses that they didnt film any.

 

I seriously doubt they put up anything but the shows as aired.

 

 

We could have said the same thing about Raw but they suprised us there.
 

 

The Raws they uploaded have bonus footage or is the bonus footage somewhere else on the Network. Like if I throw on a Raw from 98, does it have a dark match thrown in or something?

 

 

 

A lot of the Attitude Era Raws have an "extra attitude" segment usually just for the live crowd to send them home happy. 

 

 

I wish they had broadcasted them back in 1998 to send the TV viewers happy!

Maybe a Time Machine can be constructed? I'd write the House of Lords and ask. Never know how they're spending your money these days...

Many a time in 99 when the show went off the air Id be pissed off when the last moment was Vince screwing Austin or some other thing. Wish it had like the Network does where you see Stone Cold kicking ass.

 

But why exactly did they have to send the fans home happy? They still get a entertaining show at the end of the day.

Why send the fans home happy?! So they leave satisfied? So they come back the next time you're in town? That can't be a serious question?

TV audience should be the same if all they care or should I say all Russo cared was ratings.

Plus it wasnt the old territory house show circuit days. While there are staples (no pun intended with the LA arena), when they came back for a live TV taping was rather random, or at least at the mercy of various scheduling reasons.

NOW that is more like the old circuit way of booking. You tune in next week to see if the face gets the revenge.

Am looking forward to Heat on today. If they do a batch of them logically it'll be 1998 - 1999 which was really the best years when they did angles before Smackdown started.

My fav one has to be in June 99 when Austin stunned like 15 guys in that one show.

What's nice is since Smackdown started in August 99, Having the first year up is pretty much the entire time the show was relevant as far as storylines go.

Did they even do the MITB qualifying matches on Raw in 99 as that kinda annoyed me how Heat wasent available in the UK and we see odd clips of people qualifying.

I suppose you mean KOTR? According to "The History of WWE" all 8 qualifying matches happened on Sunday Night Heat indeed (on May, 30th and on June, 6th).

Yeah. Strange Heat got all qualifying matches. Have half of em on Raw at least.
