So apparently the first year’s worth of episodes of Heat are up on the WWE Network now and since it’s nearly the 20th anniversary since the debut episode (and since I pretty much only want to watch hour long wrestling C-shows these days) I decided to check this one out.

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.

Why am I watching Unforgiven 1999? Because I’m a glutton for punishment and want to watch all the matches that won the Wrestling Observer’s Worst Match of the Year Award and this one has the infamous Kennel From Hell match, which apparently was the worst professional wrestling match of 1999, that’s why! So let’s get our attitudes on and check it out!

We’re one day removed from one of the worst goddamn PPVs I’ve ever seen in my life, New Blood Rising. How will WCW follow up with that dumpster fire? Let’s check out this episode of Nitro from 2000 and find out!

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.

Time for another goddamn episode of WCW Nitro from the year 2000. No recap package this week as we go directly from the Nitro logo to an arena in Cleveland, Ohio where too much pyro is exploding and Tony Schiavone welcomes us to the show.

This is a special Tuesday installment of WCW Monday Nitro. No, there aren’t NBA playoffs or anything of that sort, they got preempted for on Monday so TNT could air a made for TV movie. Oh how the mighty have fallen…

I’m going down to Memphis today for whatever reason with a random episode of USWA Championship Wrestling on WMC-5. We’ve got Dave Brown and Michael St. John calling the action at the WMC Television Studio this morning. The run down the matches we’ll see this morning and then tell us that after the break will get down to action.

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…
