RAW SATELLITE FEED: Dallas, TX 2/16/98 Approx. 2 Hrs. Good to Very Good Quality
This tape is legendary and the most sought after satellite feed. Sunny moons the crowd and Sable’s chest pops out of her top! This was not seen on the regular broadcast of Raw, but luckily somebody recorded this episode of Raw live from the intercepted satellite feed. It was a Raw that was recorded to be broadcasted the following week on the USA network. Listen to the announcers mess up and have to start over again. Jim Ross gets a little pissed off at Michael Cole for messing up his lines. Listen to Ross and Jerry Lawler joke around during the matches, even make fun of some people (especially Jim Cornette’s weight). During the commercials you get to see and hear whats going on in the arena. After Sunny is the guest announcer for a match, she sticks around when it is over. While the show was supposed to be at a commercial, Sunny walks by the curtain and unzips the top of her shorts to reveal the top portion of her ass. Also on this tape, while Sable is trying to get at Luna, 90% of her breasts pop out of her outfit. This is an amazing DVD.
RAW SATELLITE FEED: Dallas, TX 9/10/98 Approx. 3 Hrs. Good to Very Good Quality
See dark matches that were never intended to be on tv involving stars of APW wrestling. After Raw goes off the air, there are other matches including a 24 man battle royal that was recorded for Shotgun Saturday Night. During the SSN recordings, the announcers (Cornette and someone else) are just bs’ing about all sorts of stuff. The episode of Raw has Edge v. Gangrel, Sable v. Jackie (evening gown match) Rock v. Kane, Austin v. Shamrock, much more. It is 3 hours and twenty minutes long and there is very light static on the picture.
RAW SATELLITE FEED: Dallas, TX 12/14/98 Approx. 3 Hrs. Good to Very Good Quality
It has the satellite feed before and after Raw is on the air, but when Raw is on, it was recorded from the USA network. It shows cool wrestling music videos that are usually just shown in the arena (to Rage Against the Machine) This was the Raw when Degeneration X impersonated the Corporation-hilarious. The Rock confronts Degeneration X and gives his best interview to date (where he impersonates Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan, Bret Hart, Randy Savage). This Raw features the Rock v. Hunter Hearst Helmsley (debut of Test) and a bunch more matches. When Raw goes off the air, you can still watch dX in the ring celebrating and HHH moons the crowd. A girl (that was shown in Raw magazine) in the audience moons HHH back (wearing a thong). Then there are some Heat recordings in which Shane McMahon and Kevin Kelly are just sitting there talking about nonsense. Again, their is very light static but not enough to take away from the tapes quality. Cool tape.
