Illustration for article titled A Comprehensive Video Timeline Of The WWF, WCW, And The Monday Night Wars

Tonight is the 1000th episode of WWE Raw, which started life as an unassuming little weekly program based on the novel conceit that wrestling could be broadcast live, in primetime. It's easy to forget now, but they barely made it to 200 episodes. The upstart WCW, on the strength of poached talent and the NWO, routinely buried the WWF in the mid-to-late '90s—until the Attitude Era, which still remains the Raw's golden age. The Houston Press has a massive rundown of the Monday Night Wars, from the first shots to Vince McMahon emerging as the undisputed king of pro wrestling. Get ready to spend way too much time going down memory lane. [Houston Press]
