Matt Boone

Ashley Healy sent along the following:

In RAW in Australia (Fox 8, Wednesday) There were MAJOR edits on RAW.
1. At the start when Michael Cole was meant to say "On November 7th, 1997" instead of November 9th.They just cut to "On November, 1997"
2. During Evan Bourne vs Sheamus there were blurred ads.
3. During Orton v Kofi there were blurred ads.
4. During the Unified Tag Team Title match, they edited out Chris Jericho’s Mocking of Hulk Hogan.

Andrew McMahon sent along the following:

It’s not the Japanese nWo theme, it’s simply a soundalike that was created because they didn’t have the rights to the actual song. The CD also had tracks for Hogan (a Voodoo Child rip off), Eric Bischoff, Buff Bagwell (used as his entrance theme), Scott Norton (used for the Jung Dragons), Konnan (used in WCW Mayhem), and others.

The theme was also used in WCW Nitro and WCW/nWo Thunder video games as seen below.
