Update on updates:

Thread is all but dead and the WWE has officially moved to Peacock. Monday Night RAW only goes back to 2003 on Peacock. Screencaps are now more cumbersome compared to my old process. I thought about just starting over with the 2003 season but so far I'm not planning on it.

This all sucks.

I will try and finish KotR, but after that I can read the writing on the wall that Raw Reports can't continue in the way I enjoy most. Maybe if the WWE keeps its promise to get all old content uploaded I can resume in the summer. They HAVE made progress already in giving WWE its own category on Peacock and adding more content. Who knows. If so, maybe I'll make a new thread in the future or hell, maybe this thread will still be kicking.

It's been fun. Look for the final KotR update this week.



If you continue you may want to move them to one of the wrestling threads in the punch sports subforum. They're more active.

It is the one year anniversary of last year's Wrestlemania, and the weirdest match in wrestling history: the Firefly Funhouse Match, which literally features John Cena wrestling against his subconscious insecurities.

https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x7t4s8k

It's a 14 minute arthouse film featuring John Cena spliced into old Hulk Hogan footage with a puppet Vince McMahon yelling "THAT'S SOME GOOD poo poo".

It's amazing, it's horrible, it's everything.

First Rarity's WWF PPV series ends with Hogan's final appearance during his initial run. Now Eclipse12's WWF Raw/PPV series ends with Hogan's other final appearance from 90's WWF.

Off the top of my head, some stuff we're going to miss out on:

- The Bodyslam Yokozuna Challenge on the USS Intrepid on the 4th of July.

- Ludvig Borga, the evil main eventer foreigner from the dark realm of Finland.

- The totally awesome Randy Savage vs. Crush feud.

- This weird situation where they set up a Survivor Series match of the Hart family vs. Jerry Lawler and his three masked knights, only for Lawler to get in trouble with the law a week or so before the PPV and now it's Shawn Michaels and his three masked knights for no reason.

- Owen Hart kicking Bret's leg out from under his leg. Not a typo.

- Earthquake defeating Yokozuna in a sumo match. This was supposed to lead to Natural Disasters vs. Yokozuna/Crush at the following Summerslam, but Earthquake jumped to WCW to become the Shark instead. Vince didn't even come up with a replacement angle, meaning two of the top heels were without matches on one of the biggest PPVs of the year.

- A lengthy Undertaker angle that involves him flying to Heaven, fighting his evil clone, delivering Dominos pizza, being investigated by Leslie Neilson and George Kennedy, being protected by Chuck Norris and using his magic to make Mr. Fuji wear a dress and wig.

Out of all the things you mentioned, this is the one that has me the most

Also, thank you to those sharing kind words about the Raw Reports. Maybe some day they can return. Seeing that list makes me realize all the good stuff I still want to watch. And, again, they "promised" to get it all on Peacock by this year's Summer Slam.
If I do get to start it up again, I'll cross post in GBS and the punch sport pagoda, at least so people know I'm doing it.

I was also bingeing Tough Enough and that's gone too!

I'm probably gonna watch the PPV this weekend because I already have the account, but I only recognize maybe half the names on the card, so

I've heard NXT has morphed into the most "pure" WWE program. Confirm/deny?

Woooo! Also yeah seconding that I'm glad it's in GBS. I don't really explore SA enough and it's actually giving me interest in reading the wrestling forum so consider it a good recruiting / outreach tool!
