WWE 24/7 posted up the latest edition of the “Monday Night Wars” earlier tonight. The program featured the 2/10/97 WCW Monday Nitro and the 2/13/97 Raw (it aired on a Thursday night that year due to the annual dog show on the USA Network). The Raw episode featured the infamous segment in which Shawn Michaels relinquishes his championship belt and talks about “losing his smile.” Regarding the Nitro episode, the main event on the show was a match between Chris Benoit & Steve McMichael vs. Chavo Guerrero & Jeff Jarrett. They skipped that match and went straight to a Roddy Piper/nWo segment that closed out the show. The match was edited off the program that was posted on WWE 24/7 earlier tonight. So well, it looks like all Chris Benoit matches are going to be edited off of all programs posted on WWE 24/7 for the foreseeable future, if not forever.
Ultimate Warrior appeared on “Hannity & Colmes” last night to discuss the Chris Benoit tragedy and field questions regarding the usage of steroids in the pro wrestling world. During the interview, things got heated to say the least. For those that missed it, or want to see it again, you can see a video of the interview at this link. Warrior was originally scheduled to appear on the show last Friday, but they re-scheduled it for Monday because there was a shift in programming due to the London Bombing attempt. Come Monday, Warrior didn’t appear on the show because they couldn’t get the audio signal to work. Warrior talks about what happened on Monday in a blog on his website, which you can read at this link.
