WCW Monday Nitro (July 10, 2000)

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.

WCW Monday Nitro (July 31, 2000)

The show begins with a ten-bell salute as a picture of Gordon Solie along with the text “Gordon Solie 1929-2000,” is displayed. I can’t believe that in WCW 2000 someone had the good sense to do something as subdued and classy as this, but that’s actually what we get here to memorialize one of the all time greats in wrestling announcing.

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).

I’m not against this recap thing in theory since any particular episode of Nitro could be someone’s first wrestling show, but in order to make it a more effective thing, maybe cut some of the less important stuff from the opening recap package, but I digress…

WCW Pro (January 6, 1996)

From time to time I’ve got 40 minutes to kill and a desire to see mid-90s WCW wrestlers squash dudes in short, nothing matches. Today was one of those days so I checked out an episode of WCW Pro from 1996. Our hosts for this morning are Chris Cruise, Dusty Rhodes and “The Living Legend” Larry Zbyszko. Let’s get down to the ring for action!

WCW Uncensored (March 19, 2000)

We’re live at the American Airlines Arena in Miami for WCW Uncensored, a show with a reputation of one of the worst WCW PPVs of all times. So why exactly am I reviewing a notoriously bad show from WCW’s nadir? BECAUSE DOUBLE STRAPIFICATION JACK!

We start things off with a video package highlighting the events leading up to the trio of main events to come. We get stuff about Luger and Sting feuding for the nine billionth time and Sid and Jarrett jostling for the World Heavyweight Championship, but none of that shit actually matters because Hogan vs. Flair is a MOTHERFUCKIN’ YAPAPI STRAP MATCH BROTHER DUDE JACK!

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.
