Heat Of The Moment: Sunday Night Heat, Episode 4 (August 23, 1998)

WWE Network

Previously on Sunday Night Heat: Bite Club enthusiast Gangrel debuted, Stone Cold Steve Austin announced that he’s “bad to the bonz” (whatever those are), and Shane McMahon introduced Jim Ross to FRIEND.

Previously on WWF Raw Is War: Bill Clinton made some very real phone calls to let the Raw announce team know what he thinks about Monica Lewinsky, and the fact that WWF pre-taped Raw sent WCW Monday Nitro into a tailspin of insanity.

Here’s what you missed 21 years ago on WWF Sunday Night Heat, episode three, originally aired on August 23, 1998.

Before I begin, I just want to point out the horrible timing of starting up a Sunday Night Heat column with Shane McMahon on commentary while both modern Monday Night Raw and modern Smackdown are obsessed with him. I’m really browbeating myself with Shane McMahon content here. But I also started up a WWF Superstars 1992 column right around the time the Ultimate Warrior showed up in WCW, so maybe I’m just a glutton for punishment, and pro wrestling has always been like this.

Anyway, this week’s Shane McMahon “friend” only gets one on-camera shot while Shane laughs at The Rock calling the crowd, “the largest collection of trailer park trash The Rock has ever seen,” and is identified in passing as “Kara.” She does a great job of making Shane seem cool! Hey we should have more SHANE MCMAHON on television! Great idea, rabble rabble!


“Kara” – ???
When you realize you’ve spent a decade wasting your God-given ability to write trying to convince people why they should watch a show that hates anyone who watches it – ❄️❄️❄️❄️
