That was a fun episode with Coach and (I think) Michael Cole in the lobby of the Hammerstein in front of these rabid ECW fans.
Some of the Thunders were okay, I remember one edition in late 98 where Raven got a WCW World Title shot against Goldberg.
Lol, I literally watched every episode of Thinder when it originally aired, and I honestly can't think of any matches I'd want to rewatch.
I did too, I thought it was decent for the first few months myself nothing must-see, but to each their own.
There were some fun stuff like Lenny Lane dressing up as Chris Jericho to fool Dean Malenko in a match and some of the Benoit/Booker best of 7 series was on there, but that was all I can remember. As I said, it wasn't earth-shattering but it was entertaining in small doses,IMO.

A few years ago I decided to re-watch all of thunder from the beginning because I make poor choices in life and I secretly like pain and I can honestly say that the show was useless for its entire run.It starts the same time in January 98 when Nitro went to 3 hours with an overrun now you added 2 more hours also with an overrun with all the stars but nothing memorable happens about 3 or 4 months in they realize that their spending twice what they normally do for tv each week by having Hogan & all the stars on 2 shows a week so quickly the stars are gone and you've got matches like Kaos vs Riggs and a main event of K-Dawg vs Brian Adams.The show doesn't pick up with star power till Russo decides that everyone needs to be on nitro & thunder but everything is so rushed and crash tv that nothing matters.By the fall of 2000 they tape it the same night as nitro after 90% of the crowd has left and it's just depressing.
I have always wanted to see that episode of Heat called "Extreme Heat" that came on right before the first One Night Stand. I would seriously get a Network subscription again for a month to check this out finally.
That show would be just one long bleep cause those fans were disgusting potty mouths for the entire hour.

one of the good things about Thunder was that after a while Jericho and a few others realize that none of their bosses were watching and/or cared so they had free reign to do whatever nonsense they could get into their segments.

Thanks for waiting until I reached the middle of 1999 in my chronological WWF journey to start uploading Heat! Now I've got to the point where nothing happens on Heat you choose to upload them...it's a conspiracy against me.
I wonder if they'll show the ppv preshows of heat or the uk/international versions of heat. Wish they will give you both options
They should give both options for every week once the show's commentary was done live from WWF New York, while the international version had different hosts. There was also a week in 2001 where the U.S. version just had a live sit-down interview with Triple H and Stephanie, and the international version had matches.
