September 12th, 1998: "Raw" is relegated to a Saturday night for the second week in a row thanks to The U.S. Open, and the WWF responds by intentionally giving us another lackluster show. The Rock has been a hated heel for the past year, but he cuts a promo on tonight's episode where it appears that he maaaaaay be starting to shift his allegiances. In what is somehow the main event for this episode, D-Generation-X battles Kaientai in an eight-man tag match. Edge goes one-on-one with the new-look Jeff Jarrett, who continues to advise his opponents not to piss him off. Southern Justice squares off with Too Much in a rare heel-vs.-heel tag team affair. D'Lo Brown & Mark Henry team up to face The Headbangers, and Thrasher proceeds to make some uncomfortably racist comments about "The World's Strongest Man." The Oddities do battle with The D.O.A., but this epic encounter is marred by a legitimate technical fuck-up during the match. Vader steps into the ring with Dustin Runnels, who ends up getting a bit too distracted by his new nemesis Val Venis. In a rematch of their Brawl-For-All fight from a few weeks ago, Bradshaw goes up against Darren Drozdov. Marc Mero takes on Miguel Perez in a match which probably would be a better fit on "Shotgun Saturday Night" instead of "Raw Saturday Night." Plus, the WWF decides to kill some time by re-showing a match from "SummerSlam" and Al Snow (unfortunately) makes an appearance!
