Time for another old-ass episode of Monday Nitro because I’m a miserable old fuck who doesn’t have a ton of free time. Let’s check this shit out! We’re live from somewhere. I have no idea where exactly since Eric Bischoff doesn’t mention it. He’s joined by Bobby Heenan, Mongo, and Mongo’s dog, Pepe, who is dressed as a horse for some reason this week.

Decided to watch another one of the Observer’s Worst Match of the Year winners and so I’m checking out WCW Uncensored ’96 tonight. Maybe it’ll be one of those shows where the main event sucks ass but the undercard is pretty boss, which was often the case with Hogan Era WCW. Let’s find out!

Time for some more WCW Monday Nitro from 1995! Coming to you live 23 years ago in Johnson City, Tennessee. Our hosts for the evening are Eric Bischoff, Bobby “The Brain” Heenan, Steve “Mongo” McMichael, and Mongo’s dog, Pepe who is dressed in a little cowboy hat for reasons beyond my comprehension.

Sometimes you just want to watch a random 23 year old wrestling show with zero political implications attached to it which is why I watched the second ever episode of WCW Monday Nitro this weekend. Coming to us live from Miami, FL the hosts for the evening are Eric Bischoff, Steve “Mongo” McMichael, and Bobby Heenan.
We kick things off with one of the most important debuts in the history of WCW: the classic WCW Monday Nitro set. This is hands down the best non-PPV set in the history of this great sport. Come at me bro!

Time for another random episode of WCW Pro from 1996. Again our announce team for the morning consists of Chris Cruise, Larry Zybyszko, and Dusty Rhodes. They hype the main event of this morning’s show by informing us the Stud Stable will be in action before throwing it to a video package to show us what went down on Nitro this past Monday.

The story goes that back in 1987 Vince McMahon put together the Survivor Series to fuck with Jim Crockett Promotion’s PPV buyrates for Starrcade. The event was scheduled on the same day as the previously announced Starrcade and Vince talked a number of cable providers to carry Survivor Series alone by threatening to withhold WrestleMania IV from them if they aired both events.
Crockett decides that turnabout is fair play and schedules an NWA supercard to run against WrestleMania IV and goes that extra mile by putting it on free TV instead of PPV. This is that supercard.

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.

Ric Flair loves to fight with Big Boys That Love to Roughhouse! We get footage of him fighting and ultimately pinning Vader that apparently proves the point that Ric Flair is not afraid of Kevin Nash while also burying a dude who was no longer with WCW.
We go to the announce team for the evening: Tony Schiavone, Bobby Heenan, and Larry Zybyszko. They tell us that because of the NBA Playoffs, Nitro is only an hour long this week and then some bagpipes hit.

Time for an ECW Supercard! One that’s not available on the WWE Network as of writing this. This one is coming to us from the ECW Arena on May 14, 1994. We start things off with more or less the same opening montage that begins every 1994 episode of ECW TV before heading down to the ring for action. ECW! ECW! ECW!

Oh fuck it’s the Bruise Brothers! They’re attacking their opponents before they even have a chance to get in the ring! That is not particularly sporting of them!
Match 1: The Bruise Brothers vs. Stormin’ Mike Norman & ????
This is barely a match. The Bruise Brothers attack before the bell, brawl their way into the ring, hit some power moves, hit a double big boot and make the cover to pick up the win. After the match they continue to pummel their opponents before we get the opening credits.
Winners: The Bruise Brothers
I feel bad for whoever the non-Stormin’ Mike Norman Bruise Brother victim was since he has more or less been forgotten to time. Joey never mentions his name (to be fair he doesn’t mention Stormin’ Mike Norman either but Mike had the wherewithal to wear tights with his name on the ass) and all the records of this match on the internet either incorrectly claim that the Bruise Brothers fought someone like Mikey Whipwreck or Hack Meyers or just have the second dude listed as ????. So ???? if you’re out there, let me know who you are so we can get you the respect you deserve for taking a hellacious beating from a pair of oversized Nazi fucks. [NR]
