Hi all,

I'm currently watching raw from 1997 and must say I'm enjoying it ......

I'm currently in march, started in Jan (obviously) so far I will run down some highlights

Sid was champion coming into the year, Shawn won it, vacated it, Bret won it, Sid won it again the night later

There is a world title match every other week, Austin is emerging, one promo Bret interrupted him and Austin walked off camera and said I'm going knock him out

The Bret v Austin feud has much more than the. Mania match the build up is excellent, Shawn has lost his smile, ecw has invaded properly, lod has just come back, heyman and Lawler promos are gold, faarooq is a proper bad pass, taker is awesome and mankind is ripping his hair out and punching himself in the face.....

China has just debuted and trips has just had a great match with Bret Hart

Very busy but epic road to wreslemania 13

Ahhh my favorite year in Wrestling, It only gets better, the only disappointing thing about it is Sid/Taker, It just didn't have anything in it but im glad they held back on Austin, he was on fire by this point and Bret was a superb foil for him but it was too early to drop the belt onto him but for me that should definitely have been the World Title feud

Great year. The stretch between mania and Summerslam is particularly fantastic.

I'm still watching 1997, we're after mania now, but i'm watching an IC Title match between a (Face) Rocky Miavia and a (Heel) Owen Hart ... The owen chants are all the way through and when Owen won the title the crowd went nuts .... IWC was present i think.... (if it existed )

Rocky Maivia was hated by a lot of fans. He was such a cheesy babyface. It's incredible to think how charismatic he turned out to be when he turned heel later that year.

Also, you know when you see something and it was great then you watch it back and it wasn't....

Sunny is not one of those things, probably the hottest diva of all time IMO.....

(In her day obviously)

Sunny was gorgeous, the fact that since first seeing her I've found out shes an utter nailbag just adds to her legend...good stuff.

I'm actually jealous that you've got the time to sit through 97 again, unbelievablr year, Jim Cornettes shoots later on in the year are truly epic

I've been doing the same thing only it's 1992 I'm currently watching. My favourite year, great memories. YouTube "The Perfect Picnic," you won't regret it!

Brought Apple TV a few months ago and hooked it up to the bedroom TV. I should really get a woman!

I'm into may and i've been surprised, that a few guys have crept in that i didn't know were there in 97, a match between RVD and Jeff Hardy ....

Yes mate. Prime Time and Superstars. The Flair/Perfect feud blew off in one of the very first Raws.

You should give the Attitude Era Podcast a listen. They review all PPV's in order starting from Wrestlemania 14. They, like me, grew up watching and loving the Attitide Era but it doesn't really live up to the nostalgia looking back at it. Some v.good bonus episodes too including the first episode of Smackdown!
