History: WCW Saturday Night and WWF Monday Night Raw in November 1993 [Videos]

In 1993, the two major professional wrestling organizations in the United States, WWF and WCW, saw a lot of transformations: roster changes, organizational adjustments, audience shifts, and major title changes. By late 1993, both major professional wrestling organizations looked very different than they did in January 1993. For example, the early part of November 1993 saw both Hulk Hogan and Shawn Michaels on the sidelines for the WWF. Hogan's last official match for the WWF was August 6, 1993 in England and Michaels was suspended in September 1993 and would not return until late November. Ric Flair left the WWF in February 1993 and arrived in WCW later that month.

In contrast, on November 6, the WCW had a full roster of stars in Ric Flair, Vadar, Steve Austin, Booker T, Paul Orndorff, Ricky Steamboat, Sting, Sid Vicious, The Nasty Boys, Rick Rude, Harley Race, Davey Boy Smith (The British Bulldog), Cactus Jack (Mick Foley), Dusty Rhodes, Dustin Rhodes, Arn Anderson and with broadcasters Jesse Ventura, "Mean" Gene Okerlund, and Tony Schiavone, leading the way.

While the WCW roster was stacked with classic and new wrestlers, the WWF still had a lot to offer under Vince McMahon. As an example, the quality of video production remained with the WWF as illustrated in the videos showing WCW Saturday Night and Monday Night Raw episodes below.
