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


The Bryan & Vinny Show is back today with our look back at Raw and Nitro from 19 years ago this week: August 23, 1999!

Triple H is the new WWF Champion and boy did his reign get off to a lame start thanks to GEEKS ON THE INTERNET already starting to ruin wrestling two decades ago. It also had Big Boss Man kidnapping Pepper, Test’s proposal to Stephanie McMahon, the debut of Miss Kitty, the turmoil of Billy Gunn and the missing pen, Howard Finkel channels his inner warrior and more.

Nitro featured the most fun segment in the 140-year history of pro-wrestling, a KISS concert that was not on the WWE Network, the return of Lex Luger out of nowhere, Sid coming in and ruining matches (but otherwise being awesome), West Texas Rednecks: The Concert, DDP learning what you should never call Goldberg and a main event featuring Hulk Hogan defending the WCW title against Sting. A fun show as always so check it out~!

Be sure to check out tonight's episode on!
