Bad Blood 2003




Dan Hey: When the History of Wrestling editor released the sign-up sheet for Volume Six, I was the last one to check it. Subsequently, I put my name down for a selection of the pay-per-view releases that were left over without even processing what they were. To tell the truth, once the In Your House pay-per-views moved to three hours and dropped the prefix, I began to lose track of which pay-per-view was which off the top of my head. The reason for this: product overexposure and card overkill, evidenced here by my coverage of no less than three consecutive releases (all taking place within a four-week period between May and June 2003) that feature two or three incarnations of the same match-up/feud, with only the slightest variations differentiating them from one another. It is only as I sit down at 6:30 a.m. on a Wednesday morning do I realise which event I have to endure today. Bad Blood 2003 was the first official (as in North America) pay-per-view that was exclusive to one particular show following the 2002 brand split. Unfortunately for me, it’s a RAW event, so instead of getting a worker-packed card featuring the likes of Eddie Guerrero, Chris Benoit, Kurt Angle, and Edge, I’ve got Test versus Scott Steiner and Triple H versus Kevin Nash to look forward to. Again. We’re in Houston, Texas, and the hosts are Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler.
