It’s the fallout from WrestleMania XII with new WWF Champion HBK making enemies left and right from Diesel to Mr. Perfect to the King! Vader breaks the ankle of Yokozuna and Yoko has to be carted off ON A FORKLIFT! The Wildman Marc Mero arrives in the WWF, and Sable isn’t far behind. Ahmed Johnson meets his match with something STIFFer than him! Goldust confronts the Potty Mouth Ultimate Warrior. Plus, Mankind makes his in-ring debut in memorable fashion when he takes out The Undertaker!

Over in WCW, it’s the oddest episode of Nitro to date. The Giant turns face, then turns heel again. The Roadies vs. Steiners vs. Nastys in a Triangle match. The Hulkster & Kevin Sullivan play dueling shoes. Hulk Hogan and the Booty Man continue to be booed out of the building while they dominate the competition, brother. There are two Brian Knobbs? Please, no! Plus, Lex Luger challenges WCW Champion Ric Flair for a cup of coffee.

Plus, we’re 7 full months into the Monday Night War and we take a look at the collective Ratings of Raw vs. Nitro, both the 1996 Quarterly report and overall. Who is currently winning the rating war based on the average Rating? It’s closer than you think!
