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.

WCW Monday Nitro (August 21, 2000)

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.

Welcome everyone to another installment of WCW Monday Nitro from the year 2000. We start things off with a recap of what happened last week in WCW. I actually watched last week’s Nitro but still found this rapidfire recap to be so overstuffed with shit that I was confused about what I was looking at (I don’t think it helped that they had Thunder stuff as well).

So this past week I discovered an excellent podcast titled Keep It 2000 and binge-listened to all 25 episodes that currently exist. The show reviews episodes of WCW Monday Nitro from the year 2000 and is so utterly hilarious that I decided to start playing along at home and jump on with the episode they will cover in the next installment of their podcast. This is that episode.

WCW Thunder (January 8, 1998)

In 1997 the WCW had done gangbusters. Nitro was one of the highest rated shows on TV or maybe just on cable. They were so successful and making so much money that they decided to add a another show to their TV schedule in addition to Nitro and Saturday Night and Worldwide and Main Event and whatever else they already had. That show would air on Thursday nights and be known as Thunder. This is that show.

This is the premiere episode so we get a pretty stacked card with something like three different title matches signed plus the Larry Zbyszko vs. Eric Bischoff match from Starrcade ’97 in its entirety, which I sure the fans in the arena are going to love. So let’s take it away!
