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!

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.

USWA Championship Wrestling on WMC-5 (June 29, 1991)

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.

WCW Monday Nitro (July 3, 2000)

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 Monday Nitro (June 26, 2000)

WCWNitrologo1999

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 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!

NWA:TNA Weekly PPV #20 (November 13, 2002)

Welcome to the TNA Asylum. Jeremy Borash introduces Goldylocks who will sing “The Star Spangled Banner,” in honor of the veterans (Veterans’ Day would have been a day or two prior to this). She proceeds to sing the National Anthem unaccompanied and does a pretty decent job.

We then get the opening video before we’re joined by our hosts for the evening: Don West and Professor Iron “Mike” Tenay. Tenay tells us that as of yet, Mr. Wrestling III has not contacted him about The Truth’s open contract. He and West then give us a brief rundown of the card.
