Welcome, boys and girls, to another episode of the Lawcast! This is part 2 of our Thanksgiving spectacular and this time around we're looking at the very first time Raw and Smackdown clashed for brand supremacy in a truly fun series of invasions that set the template for this kind of thing in WWE.
But that's not all! We also have to try our best to come to grips with the death of Eddie Guerrero, chronicle WWE's wild swings and misses with their booking of John Cena, and marvel at the world that Trish Stratus created. This is a weird show from a weird time, but i'll be damned if I didn't actually like this one.
Hey guys! If you haven't joined our the Lawcast Patreon yet, here's a look at what's new:
We now have FOUR bonus episodes available to our donors, including a look at the rarely seen original pilot of Smackdown, an episode of So You Think You Can? where Steve is forced to try to fix the many, many issues with Starrcade 97, and we just released an episode of The 90s Sports podcast, something that started as a joke, but that people actually gave us money because they wanted to listen to it. You guys are weird and we love you. Sign up to get it all, and our newest bonus episode where Cewsh takes his turn in the booking chair and will try to fix the calamitous mess of ECW December to Dismember.
Think of it as hiring us for a job where you only pay us $2.50 an hour. I'm pretty sure that's not even legal, but we'll just keep it between us.
Also, we have finally found a way to meet the request that we get the most often, and we finally now have a full archive for the Lawcast where you can go and listen to us talk about Sid for nearly 100 episodes. In the future we'll have playlists up there to make it easier to navigate, but for now we've got the whole deal there for the taking. Enjoy!
