WWE RAW has a rich history filled with iconic moments, a significant amount of which came during the Attitude Era. One of the many memorable segments on the show involved Kane and Sable, which was recently referenced by former writer Vince Russo.
In light of the recent episode of WWE RAW, Vince Russo expressed his unhappiness with the drastic decrease in the quality of the Monday night show. He brought up a segment that involved Sable, Kane and The Undertaker during an episode in 1998.
On Sportskeeda’s Legion of RAW, the former WWE writer recalled the segment.
“I’m watching a scene today, it’s the end of RAW, it’s 1998 and this is when Luna and Sable were in this feud. Last week Sable was handcuffed to the ring post and she got smeared with makeup and this week Sable wants to kill her. So we got this big pull apart between Sable and Luna. Dustin’s out there, Marc Mero is out there, huge pull apart. Freaking tremendous. So they finally pull them apart and Sable hurts her knee and Mero’s trying to get her up and he can’t get her up and she’s selling it good.”
“In the ring, it’s just her and Mero. What hits? Kane’s music. And the best thing in the world, here comes Kane and Paul Bearer and Mero powders, leaves Sable there and JR is selling this. And then high above the titantron, The Undertaker. And now we got Boogs, like seriously what freaking happened to that,” Vince Russo said.
