I somehow skipped this episode of Nitro while playing along at home with the Keep it 2000 podcast and since they’ve closed up shop for the foreseeable future I figured I might as well fill in this gap in my own reviews.

We start things off with clips of what went down with Goldberg and Russo last week before we go live to Vince Russo’s office. Russo’s on the phone with “Scott,” imploring him to relax. Jarrett walks in and is all pissed off that Goldberg cost him the title last week. He wants Goldberg tonight. Russo says that everyone does and told him to go wait for Nash.

So this past week I discovered an excellent podcast titled Keep It 2000 and binge-listened to all 25 episodes that currently exist.

Survival Tobita vs. Ken the Box (EWF February 27, 2000)

Survival Tobita finally gets one over on his eternal rival, Ken the Box, besting him by countout when Ken is unable to get into the ring for their match, but Survival Tobita is very die hard and challenges Ken to a rematch right then and there. A Texas Deathmatch I suppose.

Tobita heads out to the floor where he is dropped repeatedly by spinning backfists from Ken. Tobita manages to get back to his feet, but is busted open. Ken hits him again, sending him into the crowd. Tobita is unable to answer the ten count and Ken the Box once again emerges victorious.

Winner: Ken the Box

This is a fantastic bit of wrestling as performance art. It is so ludicrous and over the top and Jim Cornette would hate it, but the crowd is more into this the a lot of the stuff I see on Raw or Smackdown circa today. If you’re a person who only cares about “workrate” and stuff like you’ll probably hate this, but I’m not one of those people so this was great! [***]
