Wasn't this the night there was an *ahem* un-authorized appearance courtesy of one of the Nitro girls? Our fearless re-capper didn't mention it. I'm pretty sure it was this night, as I was watching to see what WCW would do in tribute to Owen.
OK. Guilty as charged on the accusation of laziness that is deservedly to come.
What happened the night before (i.e., 10/6/97) in WWF that caused me to be curious how WCW would handle it? I remember watching the WCW replay that night, seeing the incident, and being surprised that it hadn't been digitized out of the re-run of Nitro.
I will now attempt to dig the archives of crz.net
EDIT - It was the night following the death of Brian Pillman.
Originally posted by WhitebaconSo what happened, exactly, now?
The night after Brian Pillman died, there was the typical salute at the beginning of RAW. At that time, Nitro was still being re-run immediately after its first airing in the Central time zone (presumably everywhere). I tuned into the replay, because I was curious how (if at all) WCW would comment on Pillman's death.
So the Nitro replay opened with a black screen salute to Pillman (I think -- that wasn't the memorable part). The Nitro Girls were on stage dancing to start the show, and I noticed right away that one of them was REALLY shaking her money makers. Sure enough, one of them popped out. Given that this was the REPLAY, I was shocked that they didn't digitize it out. She ducked behind the other girls, fixed herself, and the show continued.
