In an attempt to steal ratings from RAW onto Nitro, Eric Bischoff would reveal the results of the previously recorded RAW episodes. However, this backfired when the episode of Raw in which Mick Foley won the Heavyweight Title for the first time aired. Unlike previous times Eric did this, it caused a lot of people to tune to RAW instead of people staying and watching Nitro.

While on the road, "Stone Cold" Steve Austin decided to call Christian (Jason Reso). He left a message on Reso's voice mail, that was completely unclear. When Reso and Austin were talking to each other on the phone, Austin kept saying "What?" With this, Austin decided to use it as his catchphrase, and it as well has became a popular catchphrase to fans.

Q
Why do so many people blame Triple H for burying people?
A
While there is no concrete proof that Triple H has used his position as the boss' Son-in-Law to further his legacy and hold down talent, there are a myriad of examples that fans, journalists and historians have used to add weight for the theories of their beliefs.One such example is of former ECW star Rob Van Dam. Upon his official signing in the WWF/E in 2001 things were looking up for RVD. He instantly caught on the with pro-WWE crowd as a fan favorite and would get some of the loudest crowd pops of the year. This coupled with Van Dam receiving a WWF title shot against Stone Cold Steve Austin and facing The Undertaker over the Hardcore title on pay-per-view quickly helped propel Rob to a higher position. More than a year later he was in World Championship contention once against, this time with Triple H. At WWE Unforgiven in September Rob faced off against Trips in a losing effort. In November at Survivor Series they competed in the first ever Elimination Chamber match. During the course of which, Rob Van Dam performed his signature Five-Star Frogsplash finishing maneuver onto Triple H from the top of a pod within the Chamber, accidentally crushing his throat on the landing. Rob's last World title shot for the time came a week later on Raw against Shawn Michaels, where Triple H interfered giving RVD a Pedigree. Afterwards Rob was pushed down the card to a more mid-level status (also known as a Mid-Carder). In June of 2006 Rob finally won the WWE Championship, from John Cena, at the ECW One Night Stand ppv event. This would be short lived however, as Rob was busted for drug possession.
Q
Why did they rename John Cena's finishers?
A
WWE is going for a more child friendly nature with their current product. They figured that the top star should have a cleaner persona as well as move set. So the FU (Fireman's carry takeover) is now the Attitude Adjustment, and the STFU is now simply going by its traditional name, the STF.
Q
The second hour used to be War Zone. Why is that?
A
On March 10, 1997 Raw became two hours long and for TV ratings puposes both hours were given different names. Hour one would be referred to as Raw is War with the second hour being called War Zone, as illustrated by on-screen graphics. On October 1st 2001, it was changed so that the first hour would be Raw, with the second hour being Raw Zone, to remove the War moniker after the September 11th attacks and because the war between the WWF and head rival WCW had ended earlier in the year.At the end of each hour, a copyright graphic would appear at the bottom corner of the screen.
