REWIND-A-WAI #154: WWF Raw (Feb. 18, 2002)

John Pollock and Wai Ting review WWF Raw from February 18, 2002 featuring Hulk Hogan and The Rock’s first in-ring meeting and subsequent vehicular homicide angle in the lead-up to WrestleMania X8.


They discuss the nWo’s WWF debut the night prior at No Way Out 2002, Stone Cold Steve Austin’s involvement (and why he turned down the Hogan match), the attempted undo-ing of Triple H and Kurt Angle’s result from the PPV, and the show’s questionable presentation of The Rock’s demise through Jim Ross & Jerry Lawler’s commentary.

John takes us through news and notes from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter in February 2002 featuring headlines about No Way Out, UFC, Ring of Honor, Mark Coleman and more.

This subject was chosen by Espresso Executive Producer, Christopher Everett.
