B&V&C: Retro Raw and Nitro from 19 years ago this week!

The Bryan & Vinny & Craig Show is back today with tons to talk about in our look at Raw and Nitro from 19 years ago this week! Raw was your usual Attitude Era somewhat offensive, somewhat bad show. Nitro, on the other hand, was among the worst television shows of all time, historically bad, bad enough to make it clear why this company died. Plus, big announcements if you are going to All In or New Japan at the Cow Palace!

Today’s shows are from May 3, 1999.

Nitro has mental patients everywhere, long matches, Gorgeous George, Ric Flair jumping the shark, logic holes, the nWo B-team maybe feuding with Kevin Nash, David Flair’s debut match, Roddy Piper going crazy, run ins and a main event pitting Diamond Dallas Page against Ric Flair.

Raw has Shane forming the Corporate Ministry, Mankind responding with the formation of the Union, MR. ASS, special referees, Patterson and Brisco vs. The Mean Street Posse, Shane vs. Vince McMahon, logic holes, Debra vs. Nicole Bass in an evening gown match, people recovering from baseball bats being broken on their head in like five minutes and a main event featuring Rock vs. Austin which turns into a brawl featuring the Corporate Ministry.
