Been rewatching some 97 WWF recently and just saw this episode today. Obviously there was a gradual transition going on for several months before this but I think this Raw feels different to any of the previous shows, a bigger emphasis on talking/backstage stuff and a grittier, more chaotic vibe that remained from this point onwards. The first ever Raw that you can watch and think "yep, this is from the Attitude Era" imo.
Yo this is awesome!
For a moment, it looked like Vince joined the boot party. That blew my fucking mind back then.
Then, they drove it into the ground.
