It's back! Join Liam O'Rourke, Karl Jones and Kieran O'Rourke as we return to the Monday Night War Timeline to talk January 1999! Discussing every Raw, Nitro and PPV of the month, along with detailed backstage notes from the Wrestling Observer and Pro Wrestling Torch newsletters of the time, we break down all the top stories. Analysing January 4th, Tony Schiavone, the Fingerpoke of Doom, the reformation of the nWo, Mankind winning the WWF Title, madness at the Royal Rumble, Halftime Heat, Ric Flair as WCW President, the backlash to the WWF's content, Mark Henry gets a handful, the birth of the Ministry of Darkness, the continued neutering of Bill Goldberg, Sable creates a stir backstage, Russo's work coming to light and much, much more. In addition, we have all the facts and figures of the time which reveal some interesting realities that contradict the WWF's narrative of the month. A very fun show this week, check it out and join us next week as we look at February 1999!
