7/8/96 Raw in Green Bay, WI

Ultimate Warrior vs. Owen Hart- Interesting segment here. Both Gorilla Monsoon and Vince McMahon announce that the Warrior has been suspended due to not showing up at events as advertised. Here is where it gets tricky. During these times, about every 4th Raw was live and the next 3 were taped right after that. During the past couple of weeks, Warrior wasn’t showing up to events but this Raw was already taped, done, and set to be aired. What to do? Well, they just air it any ways and do voice overs saying that he is suspended until he posts an appearance bond. Jerry Lawler was saying, this may be the last time you see him, and he was right. Funny thing is, British Bulldog and Vader hit the ring and both of them along with Owen attack Warrior and leave him laid out in the ring. Couldn’t have been planned out better. During the match, Shawn Michaels and Ahmed Johnson cut a promo about their mystery partner.
