We start thing off with a replay of Team WCW standing tall after beating the nWo at Slamboree before we go out to the street for explosions and fires and wrestlers on buildings screaming. It’s time for WCW Monday Nitro!

It’s time for the finals to the inaugural Mae Young Classic. It’s in Vegas so we’ve got that Big Fight FeelĀ® in full effect as Renee Young welcomes us to the show while standing next to the trophy, which honestly looks like a piece of the Aggro Crag from Nickelodeon’s GUTS.

WCCW (January 9, 1982)

Let’s go back to January 1982 for another episode of World Class Championship Wrestling presented to us in its most complete form available on the WWE Network. Again we’ve got sleazy 70s disco funk music instead of the awesome WCCW theme song that would show up at some point prior to the former oldest WCCW episode that used to be on the network.

Our announcer for the evening is once again Gene Goodson and this time he’s joined on expert commentary by Fritz Von Erich in a denim suit. Ten seconds in and Fritz is already a million times better on the mic that Jose Lothario was last week.

Gene gives us a rundown of the card and we head to the ring for grappling action!

Time for some NXT. This week’s episode starts with a video package detailing Hideo Itami’s quest for respect and how it led to him butting heads with Kassius Ohno. These two will collide in a No DQ match tonight!

We get the opening video and then it’s off to Full Sail for wrestling action. Mauro Ranallo, Nigel McGuinness and Percy Watson are calling the action.

WCCW (January 2, 1982)

From the historic Sportatorium in Dallas it’s a random episode of World Class Championship Wrestling from 1982. This is the earliest WCCW offering on the WWE Network and it’s being presented in its most complete format available. Oh god, it’s going to be Eastern Championship Wrestling levels of bad in terms of audio-visual quality isn’t it?

WCW Monday Nitro (May 5, 1997)

Nitro’s only an hour again this week because of basketball playoffs or something which means this could be a fantastic show. Some of my favorite wrestling shows to watch are only an hour long. That being said, last week’s episode was pretty craptastic, so I don’t have high hopes for this one. Let’s get it on!

Previously on Nitro…

We start things off we a recap of the end of last week’s episode that finds the Outsiders and Syxx beating the fuck out of Ric Flair in the aisle as he screams for Piper to help him since he’s getting murdered. Piper, meanwhile, is in the ring, utterly dumbfounded by the nWo leaflets that are falling from the ceiling.

It’s time for the semi-finals of the Mae Young Classic! Two of the four women remaining will go on to face one another live in Las Vegas on September 12th. The other two will go back home…or maybe get offered NXT contracts. I don’t know.

Either way after the opening Mauro package, theme song, and introductions from JR and Lita we get a video package about Mercedes Martinez and Shayna Baszler.
