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?

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.

As has become the routine, we start things off with a video package narrated by Mauro that highlights the road the eight quarter finalists have taken to get to this point before throwing it to JR and Lita at Full Sail. They run down the matches that will take place tonight and then we head to the ring for ring introductions as the action gets underway.

Are you ready for some more lady grappling? I hope so because it’s time for the second half of Round Two in the Mae Young Classic! This episode kicks off the same as every other episode with Mauro Ranallo doing voice overs as they show highlights of the women who will compete tonight and then it’s off to Full Sail where we are joined by JR and Lita.

We’re kicking off Round Two of the Mae Young Classic. The wheat has been separate from the chaff so to speak as the sweet sixteen looks to continue their journey tonight. We get another hype video with Mauro Ranallo doing the voice over before heading to Full Sail where we are joined by Jim Ross and Lita on commentary. The remaining 16 women are on stage together as the show gets underway.
We are shown the updated tournament brackets before it’s time for a video package about the first two competitors of the evening. Continue reading “WWE Mae Young Classic Episode 5 (September 4, 2017)”
The show begins outside the Full Sail Arena. Sanity and security geeks are all laid out. People call for Regal who shows up and tells someone to get the medics as the unknown assailants run off into the night.
Inside the arena Percy Watson is like, “It must have been those ROH guys!” and Nigel McGuiness is like, “You don’t know that. It could have been anyone.” None of this matters though because the champ is here! Continue reading “NXT (August 30, 2017)”
Time for more lady wrestling! This is the final episode of Round One Mae Young Classic matches, and after some sick highlight package and the opening video deal we head to Full Sail University where JR and Lita are standing by, ready to drop some mediocre commentary on us.

Episode Three of the Mae Young Classic begins in much the same way as Episode Two, with Mauro recapping the action from the last episode and hyping up the matches to come tonight. The opening video plays and we then go to Full Sail University where JR and Lita welcome us to the show.

Mauro Ranallo gives us a recap of the matches that transpired in the last episode and the matches that are scheduled to take place in this episode. This makes me sad. He is so much better at talking about this stuff than the jokers they have doing commentary. Why couldn’t we have him and Renee Young on commentary? But I digress. Let’s head back to Full Sail for more wrestling action!
