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!

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!

I’ve been watching a lot of random wrestling shit on YouTube as of late and watched a random episode of WCW Main Event from 1991 the other day for no good reason. Here’s a review of that episode, because this is what I do with my free time.

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.

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!

Regardless of what this video is titled, Randy Savage never appears in this video from 1996. Roadblock comes out to get squashed by Savage and “Pomp and Circumstance” plays but instead of Savage we get a different Randy, Referee Randy Anderson, running out.
David Penzer informs us that though Savage was in the building earlier in the day, he is no longer present so the match will not be taking place. Roadblock takes umbrage with this and after hollering some stuff, goes backstage where a bunch of enhancement talent is sitting in folding chairs, I guess in the event that they need to kill TV time with a standby match.
Roadblock grabs one of the dudes and hauls him down to the ring and Tony informs us that this unfortunate “youngster” is Dusty Wolfe. The youngster, Wolfe, was 34 at the time. Dusty Rhodes does not like that this fellow is also called Dusty and decides that he should be known as Scott Wolfe.
Roadblock tosses him into the ring and hits him with a powerslam. He stomps on Wolfe a few times and tells him to get up. Wolfe is already dead and thus is unable to stand so Roadblock picks him up and hits a couple more powerslams before covering him and picking up a victory.
Roadblock then gets all up in the camera and calls out Lex Luger because this is WCW Saturday Night and even guys who were generally job guys occasional get wins and get to call out main eventers.
This was the greatest three and a half minutes of wrestling related nonsense I’ve seen all week. This fuckin’ ruled! [***]
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.
