I stumbled into this today, love seeing a classic WCW diary. I've started rewatching some of this time period on the network and it's ridiculous.

Sid Vicious, Mike Awesome, Team 3D vs. The Road Warriors and The Steiners
Lisa Marie Varon vs. Daffney - 1st round of the WCW Women's championship tournament
CM Punk vs. Finlay
Raven (c) vs. ??? - WCW Hardcore championship match
Vader vs. Ken Shamrock
Kanyon vs. Ric Flair
Buffy T vs. Eddie Guerrero and Chris Benoit (c) - WCW World Tag Team championship match

Give Buffy T the belts so Guerrero and Benoit can move onto bigger things. Raven, always go with Raven... And also anything with Scott Steiner. Because, why not!

Love the Raven/Meng angle and the finish for Bret/Goldberg. I thought we were destined to get Bret/HHH at Starcade. Now, not so sure.

Default WCW Monday Nitro on TNT (Show #91)



Week 1, November 2000
Arrowhead Pond, South West (17,431)


Welcome everybody to Monday Nitro on TNT! Tony Schiavone, Mike Tenay and Bobby "The Brain" Heenan talk about all the things that happened at Halloween Havoc, including Goldberg's main event triumph, Buffy T losing their championships to Benoit and Guerrero, Rey completing his nearly one year long quest to become the cruiserweight champion and Sting coming up short in a Clockwork Orange House of Fun match! Announcers are interrupted by non other than United States champion Hulk Hogan!

- Oh great, here comes the second man who cuts me off every single week!
- And who's first?
- You, Tony!

Hogan plays air guitar with his title belt, Sid Vicious and Mike Awesome follow him to the ring slowly. Hulkster grabs a mic and starts bragging about beating Scott Steiner at Halloween Havoc, it was a wash, brother! Hulk takes all the credit for the victory, with Sid scratching his head and Mike acting as usual. Hogan says that now he's done with "Big Poppa Pump", maybe he can get his rightful place in the main event? "Hulkamaniacs, I know you're dying to see me with that big gold belt once again, and I won't let you down! Now that Bret Hart is on the sidelines, I can challenge for the world heavyweight title again, dude! US belt on this shoulder, and world title on the other one!" Hulk hits his flexing pose, people are clearly not "dying" to see Hulk Hogan as their world champion in the year 2000. Mike gets a mic and says that Hulk still rules, and people better show some respect to his mentor! More boos, Sid asks for a word. "You people are stupid! Hulk Hogan is the reason all of you are wrestling fans today! When I was younger, I used to ask you... who's the man? Well I don't have to ask you now, because I know.. Hulk Hogan is the man!" So surreal to hear that from Sid. Hulk hugs his confidant, much love! SIRENS!



"HOLLER IF YA HEAR ME!" Scott Steiner is in the building. Hulk and his goons start shuffling in the ring, but it looks like "Freakzilla" is here only to talk. "HOGAN, YOU ARE NOT A MAN! IF YOU WERE ONE, YOU WOULD PUT THAT US TITLE BELT ON THE LINE TONIGHT AGAINST THE BIG BAD BOOTY DADDY! AND BECAUSE YOU'RE NOT GONNA DO THAT... YOU WILL REMAIN A BITCHASS TRAILER PARK TRASH IN MY EYES!" Awesome and Vicious are ready to tear Steiner apart, but he's not done talking. "I ONLY LOST BECAUSE MY TEAMMATES WERE A BUNCH OF JABRONIS. YOU SEE, HOGAN, YOU'RE NOT A BALD HEADED EAGLE. YOU'RE A BALD HEADED PRICK WITH TWO BALLS HANGING AROUND YOU! WHILE YOU GET YOURSELF IN SOME GOOD PLACES, BOTH SID AND MIKE ARE DANGLING ON THE OUTSIDE. YOU'RE LIKE HALL AND NASH, ONLY DUMBER! SO HOGAN, I CAN PAY FOR YOUR SEX CHANGE OR I CAN KICK YOU IN THE NUTS RIGH’ HERE, RIGH’ NOW! WHAT SOUNDS BETTER TO YOU, HUH?"

Hogan is tomato red from rage and embarrassment. Roddy Piper comes out, tells Steiner he's fined for his language. "GOOD, GIVE THOSE MONEY TO HULKSTER, I THINK HE WANTS A SEX CHANGE!" Piper must enjoy all of this deep inside, but must not make that obvious. "Steiner, ya loudmouth, stop yelling and put your money where your mouth is! You're going to face both Mike Awesome and Sid Vicious in a minute. And yes, Hogan is not wrestling tonight. Why? Because I'm sending him to Mexico for Thunder tapings! Hulkster, you're free to go home! I'm not kidding, pack your bags and prepare to cross the border!" Hogan asks what is he going to do in that dump, but gets no answers. "Also tonight we will have a singles match between Vader and Ken Shamrock! How does that sound?" Steiner yells something, but he's bleeped out. Road Warriors appear on the stage, they want to face that damn Team 3D! They only lost because of Nick Patrick, and if Piper doesn't give them a chance to fix it, they're going to turn this place upside down! Team 3D joins the party! They're not shying away at all. Brother Ray gloats about beating the Road Warriors last night, with Devon yelling out his signature "TESTIFY!". "Hawk, if ya wanna fight, it will be an honor to drop your painted face on those mats one more time!" Steiner sides with legends, he didn't have the opportunity to hit back on Team 3D since his first table match with Mike Awesome. "HEY FATASS, SHUT YOUR DAMN MOUTH BEFORE I DO IT FOR YOU!" Ray, Devon, Mike and Sid smirk, they have the numbers advantage. Or maybe not... WOOF-WOOF! Rick Steiner is jogging to the ring, starting a four on four brawl between two units. It's on! Hogan leaves the ring to avoid the punishment, Piper calls a ref and orders to ring the bell!


Quote:
In a match that had some good action but not much in the way of heat, Vicious & Awesome and Team 3D defeated Steiner Brothers and Road Warriors in 10:35 when Sid Vicious defeated Rick Steiner by pinfall with a Release Powerbomb. 75/100
It was a chaotic brawl that was full of trash talking and tag team maneuvers. Steiner suplexed Ray and Devon around, welcoming them to WCW. "Freakzilla" even locked in a Steiner Recliner on Sid, but made a mistake of turning his back on the opposition corner. One of the better moments of the match was a Suicide Dive from Mike Awesome on top of the fighting crowd. Road Warrior Animal hit a Running Powerslam on the outside, knocking the wind out of Devon, while Hawk traded punches with Ray. "Dog Faced Gremlin" executed a Diving Bulldog on Mike, but was immediately struck with a winning Release Powerbomb from Sid Vicious. After the bell rang, a brawl between Road Warriors and Team 3D continued. Scott Steiner clotheslined Sid over the top rope and aided his brother to the back. We then switch to Roddy Piper's office, where he overlooks financial reports for the time of his absence. "Hot Rod" asks Mike Rotunda who the hell is Kia Stevens, and why is she getting so much dough? Rotunda explains that DDP signed female wrestlers in order to launch a women's division.

- And why do we need that? DDP wants us to lose the Monday Night War? Just look at those expenses! We had a masseuse and a chiropractor? Ridiculous. Tell all those girls to leave, I don't have time for them.
- But Roddy, we can't just cut them loose. DDP signed them to written contracts and already purchased the championship to crown a winner of the upcoming tournament that was advertised for a couple of weeks. On top of all that, we would be accused of being sexist, and it's not a good look for company's prestige.
- It's not a good look for our budget either. I don't care, better close this thing now and sweep it under the carpet.

CM Punk is warming up backstage, looking very confident. Torrie Wilson tries to avoid the guy, but he doesn't let her. Punk asks Torrie about Billy Kidman. "How's you drug addict doing? Still in the rehab? I hope he never makes it, so you would learn a lesson, stupid bimbo!" SLAP. Torrie had enough of Punk's repetitive bullying. Punk smirks and says she slapped him because he struck the nerve. "You react like that because I'm telling the truth. Wanna hear something else? This company doesn't need you!" Finlay interferes and tells Punk to lay off the poor girl. "If you have nothing better to do, fight me!" Punk says he would gladly put an irish has been to sleep, challenge accepted.


Quote:
In a bout that had solid in-ring action but non-existent crowd heat, Finlay defeated CM Punk in 6:41 by pinfall with a Celtic Cross. 50/100
Old school against new school. Punk may have caught Finlay off guard on Sunday, but he wasn't ready for veteran's brawling and toughness on this night. Finlay stepped in for Torrie Wilson and taught young Punk a lesson, now that's a real man. After the match irishman said that he loves this and would do it for free. "Piper, if you are so concerned about the money, you can use my wages to cover the expenses on the women's division. Those girls are working harder than some of our guys, and I want them to have a chance to fight!" Woah, that's unexpected. Finlay just pushed Piper into a corner on live TV. And of course his offer is very noble. He loves to fight and is willing to do it for nothing. Finlay is a hero we need, but not a hero we deserve.

We get a couple of replays from last night's Halloween Havoc. Goldberg holding a world heavyweight championship with a grim expression on his face, a hug between newly crowned champions Eddie Guerrero and Chris Benoit, Ric Flair shaking Kanyon's hand and Shane Douglas ripping Meng's contract apart. Konnan's freestyle introduction, Cena choking DeMott out with a leather belt. So many memorable moments happened in one night. A graphic also informs us that Kanyon and Ric Flair will go one on one here tonight! Ric Flair and Triple H step out of the limo, looking a bit hangover. Gene Okerlund approaches them for an interview, where Ric Flair mocks Kanyon. "I thought that boy liked being screwed, apparently I wasn't very romantic about it. Kanyon is so gay, he barely can think straight. He's outta my league and outta his mind if he thinks he can beat me. I'm "The Nature Boy", and I'm going to screw him again tonight. If you don't like it - learn to love it, frat boy! Wooooooo..."

After a brief commercial break we see Raven making his way to the ring. Hardcore championship around his waist, all that. Raven grabs a mic and sits in the corner. "Last night I proved every single doubter wrong... Nobody gave me a chance against Sting, but I beat him. I beat him so severely, he had to be carried away. Since that moment he fell through the stage all I kept hearing was "Sting, Sting, Sting". WHAT ABOUT ME!?? WHAT ABOUT RAVEN? I won that match and nobody is talking about me. Everyone is concerned about "The Icon"... if that would be me crashing and burning, you wouldn't even bat an eye! But you know what? I'm glad it all played out like that. Now the playground is all mine..." Raven turns his head to the TurnerTron, Crowbar and Daffney run to the ring! Crowbar still has a staple in his forehead, what a lunatic.


Quote:
In an extremely short match, Raven defeated Crowbar in 3:29 by pinfall with an Evenflow DDT. During the match we also had Lisa Marie Varon run in and attack Crowbar. Raven makes defence number 1 of his WCW Hardcore title. 47/100
Raven retains the Hardcore title with a little assist from the mysterious woman in a black leather outfit. She attacked Daffney first, then distracted Crowbar. Raven put Crowbar away, picked up his mic and got on with his speech. "I don't need your love and admiration, people, I don't need friends. You thought Meng was my friend? He never was. The second he failed to do what was asked of him - he was gone. I didn't go out of my way to put him in that position, match was set by someone else. Meng shouldn't be angry at me, nor should he return... because I have a new ally. Lisa Marie Varon! Quote the Raven, Nevermore!" Her face looks familiar. Oh yeah, she was driving that car Raven hopped in to escape from Meng! But why is she aligned with Raven? Hardcore champion doesn't tell us. He poses in the middle of the ring, while Lisa puts the title on his waist. Daffney slides into the ring and tackles the woman, they have a catfight! Raven is not interfering, he calmly watches on as they scratch and crawl. “Is that a first match of the women’s tournament?” - Heenan asks sarcastically. Referee tries to separate them, but it’s not as easy as it sounds. Ref adjusts his ear piece, gives a signal to ring the bell. Bobby Heenan said he was only joking, but it looks like some producer decided to give this scuffle a green light.


Quote:
In an awful match that was completely devoid of heat, Lisa Marie Varon defeated Daffney in 1:46 by pinfall with a Gory Neckbreaker. 33/100
Daffney and Lisa dragged each other by the hair, used their fingernails excessively and choked each other for fun. It was a short fight that ended after Daffney charged into an exposed turnbuckle. Dazed screamer received a unique move that resembles a Gory Neckbreaker! Lisa Marie wins on her debut, she made quite an impression. Lisa leaves with Raven, leaving Crowbar and Daffney resting on the mats. A new power couple in WCW? Cameraman decides to zoom on the rafters... is it Sting? Nope, it's Vampiro. He was watching Raven and Lisa Marie, then decided to speak about "The Icon" too. "I never doubted you, Raven. I saw the fall before it even happened. I've had a vision, but I was too scared that it was just a sweet dream. It was too good to be true... but now Sting is dead. That doesn't mean he's gone forever, he will be back on Day of The Dead, this Thursday. I encourage his closest friends to come and join the ceremony I will host. Together we will help Sting complete his spiritual journey..." Vampiro walks away, he's pushing the envelope here. Sting's not dead... right? Commercial break.

Hogan talks to Sid and Mike, who tell Hulkster they're coming to Mexico with him. Of course they are! "Brother, I don't know what Piper's problem is, but he can't hold Hulkamania down! Bret Hart is done, so he needs a big star that will sell some tickets for him. He will be begging me to end Goldberg's reign of terror, dude, no other way about it!" John Cena comes up to Hulk and offers him a handshake. John acts cool with Sid and Mike around, asks Hogan about a title match for US title. Hulkster rubs his mustache and says he doesn't work with rookies, jack. Sid shoves Cena out of the way, blue chipper than says he knows he can beat Hogan one on one, but nobody is listening. Meanwhile Piper is talking on his phone, by the looks of things with our former world heavyweight champion! Roddy keeps the phone away from the ear, Bret must be ranting. "Look, Hitman, I know you're frustrated, but I was very concerned about your well being. We are friends, remember? I had to save you from yourself, it would end very badly if it wasn't for me... Just watch that match at home, you were totally out of it. I don't want you to end up like Ali, it's not worth it! Listen, we need to talk about it in private, I gotta go!" Roddy hangs the phone and looks at Goldberg, who has a guilty look on his face.

- What did Bret say?
- That I had no business stopping that match, and that we screwed him over. Typical Hart, nothing new.
- Listen. I understand why he would say all that. If he wants to fight me again, let's do it at Mayhem.
- Are you crazy? You want to get rid off him period, don't you? I don't mind you carrying that championship around your waist, but don't hurt one of my closest friends. Sometimes he takes himself too seriously.
- And how should he take himself? Bret is one of the best ever, and I just want to make it clear that we can have a title rematch when he's ready. I respect the man for who he is, and if he wants to fight me - I'm all for it.
- Why couldn't you take out someone like Hogan? He's talking about challenging you soon. Stay ready and wait for my instructions, and please, don't cave someone's skull in until we talk again next week.


Quote:
In a bout that had solid in-ring action and average heat, Vader drew with Ken Shamrock in 9:36 when the match descended into chaos after Scott Steiner became involved. 71/100
It doesn't get any wilder than that. Our resident loose cannon Scott Steiner became involved and hit both men with stereo Steiner Lines, then proceeds to boot both men and yell at everyone who comes close to him. "Big Poppa Pump" got his revenge on two brawlers, but he's still not satisfied. It's hard to be content when you have a building full of enemies. "HAK HOGAN, THE MAN WITH THE LARGEST EERMS IN THE WORLD WILL GET YOU ANYWHERE! YOU SEE, I'VE WRESTLED A LOT OF COUNTRIES: JAPAN, MEXICO, CANADA, EUROPE. YOU CAN TAKE YOUR SORRY A*S ANYWHERE YOU WANT - I'LL BE THERE FOR YOU!" Steiner hits Vader with a mic and it stops working after that, so Steiner just yells stuff in the camera. Big Poppa Pump is heading to Mexico! And we're heading to yet another commercial, sorry about your damn luck.

We're back. Eddie Guerrero, Rey Mysterio and Chris Benoit are all standing in the middle of the ring, all holding their gold. They look happy, relieved and Eddie talks about how great last night was. "Latino Heat" even gives us a bit of an inside from the fiesta they had after the pay-per-view, orale! Rey Mysterio says that he's happy to finally get his hands on the title. "It is more difficult to stay on top than to get there, but I'm up for a challenge. I'm sure you guys feel the same!" This mini celebration triggers Konnan, Homicide and Hernandez. They are not in a party mood, far from it. It's not like they are ever in such a mood, but after losing to Hall and Nash at the pay-per-view, they look even more aggressive. K-Dawg cuts a beeline to Rey Mysterio, but Eddie and Chris stand up for their friend. Konnan tells them to go away, as he needs to talk to Rey mano e mano! LAX and tag team champions have a stand off, until Hall, Nash and Shelley stick their noses in this argument. "Yo Konnan, leave those kids alone, or grown ups will kick your ass again!" - Nash says. Good guys don't appreciate that, they can hold their ground just fine. Shelley is trying to hide behind Scott Hall's back, as he catches Homicide's death stare. "That gringo cost us our match, boss"! Konnan is aware of that. Inadvertently, Shelley got the attention of LAX, who forgot about Rey for a sec. Not being able to act cool, Alex Shelley starts running away from the latin gang, and they follow him backstage like a bunch of rabid dogs. "Big Sexy" starts laughing... Eddie's not even smirking.

- You better get serious, ese, cause we don't appreciate your words in the slightest.
- Oh, did my words offend you, Eddie? I'm sorry you're 5'8. You shouldn't be mad at me. Blame mother nature, HOLMES. Benoit, you better relax too.
- You don't tell me what to do, Nash. You better tell us why you're here, or leave before we jump you.
- Chico, you're playing with fire now. But if it will calm you down, we came out to lay a challenge for those sweet belts that you won last night. We feel like those are too heavy for ya…

Former WCW world tag team champions would like a word too. Booker T drops his signature “tell me you didn’t just say that” line. Buff Bagwell shakes his head, no cheesy smile from him today. Big T waits on the outside, Trish grabs a mic and says that Kevin Nash and Scott Hall can not get a title shot before the former champions, who have a rematch clause in their sleeve. “Even if it wasn’t the case… my boys beat you two already!” Trish refers to Bash at the Beach pay-per-view, where she helped her clients win the titles in the first place. Outsiders just smirk, they’re not taking her words seriously. Benoit says they don’t care who come first, they are ready to defend their titles against everyone in their sight. “Canadian Crippler” and “Latino Heat” are on the same wavelength, people love their attitude. “Big Sexy” says ok, why don’t we have two singles matches today. “Scott versus Eddie, and me against you, Benoit. If we win both matches, we will get our title shot before Buffy T… good enough for the fighting champs?” Eddie and Chris take a second to think about it, Nash is on!! Rey wishes them luck, leaves the ring.


Quote:
In a match that had some good action and average heat, Scott Hall defeated Eddie Guerrero in 7:37 by pinfall with a handful of tights. 74/100
Scott steals the victory! Eddie was looking for a Frog Splash, but missed Hall and hit the mats. “The Bad Guy” raises his arms in victory, “2 sweets” his good brother Kevin Nash. Buffy T are not interfering, but Trish is whispering something into Booker’s ear. “Big Sexy” yells it’s easier than getting candy from a baby… “Oh wait, I meant to say it’s easier than getting Rey Mysterio unmasked, my bad!” Eddie feels bad for losing, almost jumps Nash in rage. He teases Eddie to punch him for an instant DQ, but Benoit restrains his tag team partner. “Eddie, let me handle this!” Guerrero points his finger at Nash, jumps off the ring to let the second match begin. Benoit cranks his neck, Kev tells Scott to look over the cheating, lying and stealing fella.


Quote:
In a bout that featured great action and a good crowd, Chris Benoit defeated Kevin Nash in 8:29 by DQ after Booker T hit him in the back with a chair! 79/100
Smart play from Booker T! He gifted Benoit a disqualification victory, potentially injuring his back and snubbing Outsiders in the title contention. Buffy T will receive their rematch before Hall and Nash will challenge our tag team champions. Guerrero and Hall couldn’t do anything about it, as they were trash talking each other on the outside. Kevin Nash argues with the ref, Booker and Buff are over the moon. “DON’T HATE THE PLAYER, HATE THE GAME, SUCKA!” Nash picks up Benoit and gives him a Jackknife Powerbomb just for the sake of it, bad landing for “The Crippler”! Hall and Eddie start brawling, it’s a huge mismatch. Bam, Guerrero bumps into steel steps, Outsiders leave and tell Buffy T to not get too cocky. Trish and her boys are standing over Benoit, when Piper shows up once again. “You know what? Fighting champions is something I can respect. People love to see big matches on free TV, so let’s be the good guys for a bit. Guerrero, Benoit… you’re going to defend your titles.. RIGHT NOW!!” Are you for real, Hot Rod? He has a tooth for Eddie, a personal vendetta since that time "Latino Heat" fooled him with La Parka's costume. Piper sends Nick Patrick to the ring, it's happening!


Quote:
In a bout that featured great action and a good crowd, Buffy T defeated Eddie & Benoit in 12:36 when Booker T defeated Chris Benoit by pinfall with a Book End. Buffy T win the WCW World Tag Team titles. 82/100
Eddie can't believe it. He was one second too late with his save, Big T got in his way. Booker and Buff get their titles back the next night after losing them! Tenay is sick to his stomach, that's unfair! Booker and Buff worked over Benoit's back and didn't let Eddie get in until the very end of the match. Trish grabs the belts from the time keeper and runs over to her boys. Guerrero is pissed, he hits steel steps in rage and shoves Patrick away from Benoit. Benoit and Guerrero should probably appeal for a rematch, but with Piper back in charge it's doubtful they will get what they really want.

DDP is stretching backstage, with Kanyon talking about how much he hates Ric Flair. Page tells his bud to chill, "Nature Boy" is playing mind games and he's in his head already. "Yo, you need to find your inner zen. Guys like Flair feel that you're a threat, so take those words of his as a compliment. Wear it like armor and it can never be used to hurt you!" Kanyon seems to agree, but he is really salty about last night. "He can't keep getting away with it! Tonight I'll make history... Watch me!" Kanyon is heading to the gorilla, DDP asks his friend to wait a sec. No slowing down from Kanyon, he's very stubborn. His rematch against "The Nature Boy" is next!

Psicosis is walking up and down the corridor. He lost his cruiserweight title in a great match, but he's just tired of losing to Rey Mysterio, the poster boy of lucha libre. Juventud Guerrera pats Psicosis on the back, says he knows how Psi is feeling right now. "No! Arreglaré todo... Todo o nada. Titulo contra mascara!!" Juice calls Psicosis insane, and he's not wrong. Psicosis just revealed his plans for this Thursday! Luchas de Apuestas, Title vs. Mask! Who will tell Rey about it? Kanyon passes Juvi, who plays with his hair and turns his head on "The Innovator of Offense"... Juice is Loose? Oh my.



An open match with plenty of back and forth. Kanyon in the driver seat, with Page and crowd firmly on his side. Triple H warns Ric about Kanyon's attacks, that helps. Kanyon doesn't let Flair bust out any of his dirty tricks, he's been through all of them and knows every single one by heart now! Announcers suddenly start talking about some gruesome attack backstage, as Turner Tron shows us Meng pushing Piper's face against his desk!!

- Why did you put me in that match?? Why?
- I swear to God I did not! It was Page, not me! Please let me go.
- Why should I trust you? Why should I trust anyone??
- That match was added by DDP before he decided to give up his position. I got set up just like you was! Listen, I'll give you a new contract. Much better one, an iron clad type!
- I don't need any of your damn contracts, I already got one. Tell me where's Raven hiding?
- How am I supposed to know?

Meng loses patience and chokeslams Piper through an office table! Cameraman who was brave enough to film Meng from the back is now running for his life! Kanyon gets distracted, Flair rolls him up... KICK OUT! Almost. DDP is looking anxious now, people are waiting for Meng to come down. And here he is! Meng powerwalks to the ring and points at "The People's Champion"! They start brawling, with "The Face of Fear" getting the upper hand. Kimberly asks Kanyon to help out, and he does. Jumps over the top rope on the monster, gets caught in the CLAW! Triple H looks under the ring, for something to protect himself with in case s*it hits the fan. Meng is unleashed, throws security guards left and right. New Blood is here! The pack of young hounds throw themselves at the monster, they are coming from every side! Referee counts out Kanyon, awarding Ric Flair a count out victory! Nobody cares about the match now, people just watch how Meng tears WCW a new one! Sean O'Haire superkicks the beast, throws him in the ring... Swanton Bomb! Meng wants to get up, but Samoa Joe stops him with a Running Senton Splash! Palumbo, Jindrak, Sanders and Bull stomp the tough guy, Orton tells them to move aside... kicks Meng in the skull with the laces of his boot! He was not holding back with that kick! Piper comes out limping and yells to finish that silverback off. Joe steps up and locks Meng in a Rear Naked Choke. It's tight, that hold cuts off the oxygen coming into Meng's brain. Last gasps, this Samoa Joe just put Meng to sleep! Four lads grab each limb of the fallen giant and sky lift him over the top rope! "Don't you ever come back here again!" - yells Piper, backed by a bunch of his young killers. What a way to send Meng out of the company and go off air! Kanyon wants to say something to Roddy, but DDP holds him back. Good night everybody!

Quote:
Really, if you're playing to match grades, you should be doing Ring of Honor, not WCW.
True. The main objective for me in this WCW is to make company profittable. After 10 month at the helm I couldn't achieve that, although the progress is dramatic.
Quote:
YES, Daff's time to shine!
I am a big Daffney fan, so don't take her loss too seriously. I just think Varon is much better as a performer, plus I wanted her to get a big win on her debut.

For some reason I write Kanyon as an impulsive, over-emotional and hungry competitor. Guy lives for moments, so him saving DDP from Meng seems a decent way to excuse his loss.

I noticed the little things in that match at Havoc, someone is turning soon.
A slap to the face is a little thing?

I stumbled into this today, love seeing a classic WCW diary. I've started rewatching some of this time period on the network and it's ridiculous.
Awesome to have you on board, I like your ROH diary a lot too. Trying to keep it chaotic and unpredictable, but still kinda logical. Guys called it "Crash TV" before, but that's Russo having an effect as my in-game avatar

Give Buffy T the belts so Guerrero and Benoit can move onto bigger things. Raven, always go with Raven... And also anything with Scott Steiner. Because, why not!
Smart choices, you're off to a great start!
Quote:
Love the Raven/Meng angle and the finish for Bret/Goldberg. I thought we were destined to get Bret/HHH at Starcade. Now, not so sure.
One thing is for sure... nothing's for sure. Meng is gone now, I wish him luck in WWF.

Default WCW Thursday Thunder on TBS (Show #92)



Week 1, November 2000
Arena Queretaro, West Central Mexico (3,557)


This episode of Thunder starts with a one minute long no sound tribute video dedicated to wrestling personalities that passed away this year. Bobby Duncam Jr, Chris Duffy, Al Costello, Jumbo Tsuruta, Billie Joyce, the late great Gordon Solie and just recently Yokozuna. We also remember Owen Hart, Rick Rude, Gorilla Monsoon who died not that long ago, all of them will live forever in our memories. Wrestling family will never forget those people, and tonight we want to dedicate our show to their families, friends and fans. We're in Mexico, and after a minute of deafening silence we're greeted by excited, face painted fans in the audience. Heenan tries to hide a tear from us, it's ok, Bobby. Mike Tenay takes notice and runs down the card himself, particularly focusing on a huge main event: Psicosis vs. Rey Mysterio Jr in a mask versus title match!

We get a bit of a footage from earlier tonight. A video of La Parka hanging out with the fans and participating in the official Day of the Dead parade. Mexicans surely can celebrate, even if a pretty grim thing such as death is involved. "The Skeleton" is a walking merhcandise stand on this special day, he's the center of everybody's attention. La Parka of course told everyone that he came back to visit his family in the world of living... Whatever you say, selso. Look at him go, he's dancing with calacas! Everyone is having a good time, now that's a spirit. Those people laugh in the face of death, but more importantly value their history and traditions.

The first man out for a match today is Juventud Guerrera. We haven't seen him in a while, last time he was on our screens, he tried to smuggle drugs to Kidman's rehab clinic in you know where and got brushed off. Seems like their friendship is over, and Juvi is looking for new contacts. Juvi has a shiner under his left eye, probably he got one while fighting off police officers couple of weeks ago. Basically, Juventud says he sees a lot of juicy people in the crowd, "loco" just like him. Guerrera goes on and on about how cool he is and how he doesn't give a sh!t about rules, he's crazy. "Juice is Loose, La-La-La.. Any Jabron-macaron can try and take on The Juicy One!" Mic drop, he starts pouring water on his hair when all of a sudden... SUPER CRAZY shows up! An ECW regular, "The Extreme Luchadore"! Talk about insane luchadores, Super Crazy will be there. He slides into the ring and we have our first match underway!


Quote:
In a bout that had great heat and good action, Super Crazy defeated Juventud Guerrera in 10:58 by pinfall with a Crazy Bomb. 78/100
What a way to start the show! It was a great match between two amazing cruiserweights. Super Crazy gets a win on his debut, that will help him in the rankings. Juvi throws a temper tantrum in the ring, acting like a little baby. Backstage, Psicosis is rocking back and forth. He must be anxious about the upcoming mask vs. title match, judging by his body language. Konnan shows up and tells Psicosis to have a chill pill, everything will be fine. If Psicosis will have any problems beating Rey on his own, LAX will gladly help the challenger out. K-Dawg and his guys walk off, leaving rudo deep in thought. Cameraman follows the latin gang, and it’s not Alex Shelley. Another scrawny kid who looks like a dorm regular, nothing unusual.

Hulkster is talking on the phone with someone. From the conversation we can understand that Hogan wants to get a world title shot as soon as possible! It may be Ted Turner, quite possibly it is him. Hogan just lets the caller know that he doesn’t need WCW, WCW needs Hulk Hogan, jack! It doesn’t seem like the other side is arguing that point. Hogan is breathing heavily, then says he knew Turner was a smart man. “Much love, dude!” – he adds, hanging the phone down. Sid Vicious and Mike Awesome are asking how the conversation went, clearly Hulk got what he wanted. He adjusted US championship on his shoulder before addressing both of them.

- Brothers, you’re looking at the number one contender for the world heavyweight title!
- Yeah, that’s right! Finally Hulk is getting some respect!
- Did you get anything for us? Are we in the title hunt too?

Hogan was pleased to hear Mike’s words, but Sid asking a tough question changed the expression on his face. He started acting super busy all of a sudden, and left Sid without an answer. "I have little time, just need to do my bit and then I can get the hell out of this stinking hole!" Hogan closes the door behind him, and Mike Awesome shrugs at Sid and suggests they sit here and wait for Hogan to come back. "Hulk knows better, man!" Mike decides to use this time to get to know Sid better and asks "The Master and The Ruler of the World" about his hobbies. "I play softball!" Mike says that's awesome, but not vicious...

Super Calo is here! We didn’t see him for at least a year, but tonight he’s with us. And his opponent is “Black Magic” Norman Smiley, a recognized face around this area. He is a former CMLL world champion, if you didn’t know. This promises to be a fun bout, maybe even comedy heavy. Mid-way through the bout Calo tried to teach Norman how to beatbox, and Smiley wasn’t very good at it. He instead gave a sign to the back, and our production crew turned on an instrumental to 2Pac’s “Gangsta Party” (fixed by Jimmy Hart of course), leading to Smiley wiggling to it. Calo scratched his head, showed an “east coast” sign to the fool and was prepared to crack him in the nose… Smiley stopped him, asked for one more chance. Calo crossed his arms on the chest, go on. Notorious B.I.G’s “Hypnotize” hits(Mouth of the South changed this one a bit too), that gets an approving nod from Calo and they start dancing off. I wonder what 2Pac and Biggie would think of this mess… but hey, maybe they’re with us tonight? Day of the Dead, all that. Super Calo busts out a breakdancing move, and gets caught for three in a cradle!


Quote:
In an extremely short match, Norman Smiley defeated Super Calo in 4:37 by pinfall. 65/100
After a bit of a comedy match we're getting some big guns. Hogan is standing in the middle of the ring, as we’re back from commercial break. People are not kind to Hulkster, who just stands there with a smirk on his wrinkled face. “You know what, Hulkamaniacs? Hulk Hogan is in a good mood today! That’s right, dudes, good ol’ Hulkster is over the moon! Not because I’m stuck in Mexico, not because of you being so happy to see me, but because I got a title match against Goldberg! Ted Turner himself promised me a title match, jack, and I can’t wait for Roddy Piper to find out about it! I will beat Goldberg and put the world heavyweight title right here on this shoulder, brother! And whatcha gon...” Triple H’s music hits! He cut Hogan off there, as he can’t believe what he just heard. “The Game” must be trippin’, did he just hear that correctly? Hulk freakin’ Hogan is next in line for the big gold belt? Hunter scratches his head and gives Hulk a smirk, adding “you’ve gotta be kidding me!”... Triple H states he should have been a champion already, but because of DDP, Goldberg was the lucky bastard that put Hart on the shelf! “It should have been me! I’m the Game, and I’m that DAMN GOOD!”

A stare down, Hogan and Triple H turn their heads on the TurnerTron, as it shows us Goldberg marching down the corridor! He’s here! The world heavyweight champion is here! Mexican fans are very fond of “The Man”, who just slides in the ring and starts fighting both Triple H and Hulk Hogan! Bad guys decide to work hand in hand for a minute, and they gain the advantage. Not for long! HOLLER IF YA HEAR ME! Scott Steiner is not missing this one, as he chases Hogan off the ring. Hulk is running quickly for a man of his age and stature, so Steiner lets him get away. Steiner Line to Triple H! Steiner drops the elbow on Hunter and starts making push ups to add insult to injury. Goldberg is charging in the corner… SPEAR! As Triple H picked himself up, Goldberg sent him down again with his finishing maneuver! Crowd loved it and called for a Jackhammer, but that’s where Triple H decided it was enough. He left Steiner and Goldberg in the ring and followed Hogan… who came back with his oafs. Mike Awesome and Sid Vicious attacked WCW favorites, who stood their ground. Massive brawl spilled out of the ring and continued in the crowd of rabid mexican fans. Announcers send us on yet another break, just so we can watch our huge main event without interruptions.

We're back for our next match. El Dandy makes his entrance first, with a rose in his teeth. He gives it to some woman in the first row, winks at her and slides in the ring. His opponent for tonight is non other than Essa Rios. He gets another chance, and tonight he's all on his own. No Shannon Moore, that means. Dandy asks Rios where's Lita, totally unaware of the fact it is all over between them. In fact, there was nothing between them in the first place, but who cares now? Dandy makes that face like he's feeling bad for Essa, picks up a mic and starts giving Rios advice how to treat ladies, like he knows better. Well, rumors say he reached fourth base with the redhead, although you can't trust everything that is thrown out there. Rios is not having any of that and jumps on El Dandy, pouring shots on him. Ref tells him to slow down, but that's not Essa's style.


Quote:
In an extremely short match, Essa Rios defeated El Dandy in 5:31 by pinfall with a Rios Driver. 63/100
A flip over DDT planted Dandy's punchable face right into the mat. Good win for Rios, hopefully he feels better after this match. Essa jumps from the ring and leaves without saying anything. We are mid-way through the show, and it looks like some ceremony will be held in the ring. Flowers, sweets, and more importantly attributes that symbolize death are being used to decorate the squared circle. Lots of skulls and skeletons, the gimmick ones. With people sporting a spooky face paint, this visual has an unusual feel to it. A figure in the hood that looks like grim reaper himself is walking down with a casket carried by druids. Tenay, Heenan and Schiavone have no idea what's that all about, and we go to commercial break. Again.

The man in the hood is walking around a casket, it even has a body in it. Surely it's not a dead bit? Mystic figure starts talking... and yes, it is indeed Vampiro. His voice can not be confused with anyone else's, and his delivery is quite unique. Vamp starts talking about the prophetic dream he had. The one where he saw Sting falling down, the one where Sting passed away. Vampiro is sure that he has a power, that he has a special gift. But he won't talk about it... he will take his time to talk about Sting. "We all gathered here on this day to pray for Stinger and remember his time here with us. Many thought that Sting was a saint, but judging by lack of answers I'm getting from his soul on this day, he's stuck in the Land of the Dead for full four years. If Sting was as good as you people made him up to be, he would be with us here tonight. It would take him only 4 days to complete the spiritual journey..." Vamp takes a sip of wine, or maybe even blood, who knows with him. "Even though Sting's soul is somewhere in the Eighth Underworld, I carried his body to this ring. Now I would like for his close friends to join me here right now, so we could proceed with eulogy..."



Nobody comes out. Vamp opts to explain it in his own twisted way, stating that Sting never had good friends and that it is very sad that a man has nobody to help him get through this. Vampiro says anyone who wants to speak about Sting is welcome to join him in the ring right now. And you know who answers the call out? Dr. Wagner Jr! A "Bad Doctor" never met Sting, but felt like he could say a few words about "The Icon". He got in the ring, found a stethoscope in his singlet, put it to the body and in a very dramatic way said "I'm sorry, there's nothing we can do!" Wow. Ok. He IS a bad doctor. Out of the blue, Daffney and Crowbar show up with flowers. Daff is crying her heart out, she actually bought into Vampiro's elaborate spectacle and thinks Sting is no longer with us. As she's crying, Crowbar decides to say a couple of words.

"Sting was a man like nobody else. He had a cool facepaint, a nice bat and a sweet jacket, that I had the privelege to wear for a couple of weeks until I accidentally set it on fire while doing laundry. He had a great music, me and Daffney love Metallica a lot. Sting had a good taste not only in clothes, but in music too. Kids all around the world look up to him, and me and Daff are no different. It sucks that Sting left us so early, but I know he will be back. He's a real life superhero, and they always come back no matter how much times they were killed. Sting, we love you and we will miss you. I don't want to give back your trenchcoat, but I think my pants would be a good thing to wear in the Land of the Dead. I didn't wash them since Ric Flair's blood got on them, so I thought you would smile everytime you would choose to wear them there!" Crowbar proceeds to take off his pants and put them on the body in the casket. Daffney is still crying, poor girl. Vampiro gives Crowbar a stern look, then says it is time to send Sting in his last ride. GREEN MIST!! The body in the casket belongs to Great Muta! A jumpscare revival saw Daffney and Crowbar flee away in horror. Muta started brawling with Vampiro amidst the decorations, and Dr. Wagner didn't stand aside for long either. An arrival of the "Chairman" evened the odds and turned this ceremony into a tag team match! La Parka threw the steel chair right into Wagner's head, what a start!


Quote:

La Parka couldn't save Great Muta from the Wagner Driver, as he was on the recieving end of a Nail in the Coffin! Pretty much the same move, that looked very cool in stereo. Vampiro gets one victory back from Great Muta, but something tells us this rivalry is not over yet. "Skeleton" did his best, unfortuanetly he must come back to the Land of the Dead in a bit with a big L in his pocket. He also promises to pay Doctor a visit sooner or later! Parka helps Muta back to his feet, "The Genius of Pro Wrestling" put up a great fight. Hopefully one of many under WCW umbrella!

Antonio Pena, the founder of AAA is joining us here tonight! He doesn't take much time introducing himself, everyone here knows him already. And the reason he decided to show up in WCW on this night is not about him. It's about two world class wrestlers, one of which was a big star in Pena's promotion around five years ago! Mr. Pena wants Chris Benoit and Eddie Guerrero to join him in the ring, he wants to give them something. Surprised to be called out, Chris and Eddie roll in and shake Antiono's hand. Pena thinks that Benoit and Guerrero are the best team in WCW, and maybe even the whole wrestling world. And as such, they didn't deserve the Buffy T treatment last Monday! AAA chairman cuts straight to the point, he wants both of them to stick together and help his company gain some recognition in the USA. How so? Pena just wants Eddie to get back the titles he never lost... Businessman gives a sign, and some of his assistants come out with AAA World Tag Team championships! The titles that were vacated after Art Barr's tragic death. Eddie gets emotional, he never expected that to be the reason of the call out. Pena says that on a day like this, he would like to present Eddie and Chris with the championships that were a part of Arthur's life, as he wishes to bring them back to life.



Guerrero starts weeping, Benoit stands aside with his head dropped down. Eddie can't even look at the titles, so Pena goes up to Chris and asks him to carry it with pride! Eddie stops Antonio, asks for a mic and in emotional manner says he can't accept that. Guerrero talks about his friend and how those titles should be left near Art's grave, they're a part of his friend's legacy. It is not a right to carry them around like props, in Eddie's eyes. His opinion is the one that matters most here, so Pena has no choice but to agree with "Latino Heat". Benoit comforts Eddie, and then we see two luchadores come out to the stage. CMLL World Tag Team Champions - Los Infernales, Ultimo Guerrero and Rey Bucanero! They represent Pena's rival promotion, and they show no empathy to Eddie. Bucanero says if Guerrero doesn't want to take those titles, he will! Rudos jump in the ring, and start a fight with Eddie and Benoit. Teams are separated by road agents and referees, looks like intruders fired Eddie up with their trick. Eddie wants to fight them both tonight! It's not difficult to figure out that Piper stands behind all of this, toying with Eddie's emotions and trying to screw Pena over. The tag match between two teams will happen later on tonight...

Jeff Jarrett is walking around Arena Queretaro like he owns this place. This is not CWA, but he doesn't care. He throws orders around to local ring crew guys, behaving like a total jerk. "What are you looking at, slapnuts? Never seen a white man around here?" Jarrett struts down the corridor and spots Norman Smiley preparing to eat a burrito bought for his victory purse. "Hey you, gimmie that!" Jarrett tears burrito out of Smiley's hands, leaving Norman without a food and a smile. For a second "Black Magic" thought about fighting back, but then thought against it. Jarrett came out on the stage, while still chewing on the stolen goods. As he was making his way to the ring, some fan yelled at TV champion and got burrito thrown at him in return! "Choke on that, you s*ic!" Tenay was very sorry for Jarrett's words and delivered apologies to people watching at home for that offensive showing and unacceptable racial slur. People started throwing stuff at "The Chosen One", but this wasn't over for "Double J" yet, as Blue Demon Jr ran out and started beating the heck out of our TV champion. Ring the bell!


Quote:
In a bout that had great heat and good action, Jeff Jarrett defeated Blue Demon Jr. in 7:04 by pinfall with a Guitar Shot. Jeff Jarrett makes defence number 6 of his WCW World Television title. 66/100
Fans didn't calm down and were very generous with their trash throwing at JJ. They didn't stop, so ref had to beg them to calm down. Jarrett used a distracted ref to his advantage, hitting Blue Demon Jr with a guitar. The instrument imploded upon contact with luchadore's skull, turning into a lot of little pieces that blended perfectly with toilet paper, beer cups and other garbage that was thrown in the ring. Jeff steals this one and runs away with his title! Probably not a wise idea for him to come back here anytime soon. Blue Demon Jr. is very disappointed, he was pretty close to winning the title, you know. Surprisingly, Jarrett's stablemate Chavo Guerrero Jr. is here with his father, Chavo Classic! They laugh at Demon for losing, and go to the ring upon his invitation. Another fight is brewing up, but hey, it's Blue Demon! Lucha libre legend comes out slowly to the stage, to a massive reaction from the crowd! Guerreros turn their backs on the adopted son of a legend, who pushes Chavo Classic out of the squared circle and gives Junior a Stunner! People are cheering on, as Chavito is locked in the Inverted Sharpshooter, also known as El Pulpo! Guerrero taps out and Blue Demon joins the successor of his legacy in the ring for a feel good moment.

A brief recap of what happened earlier, and we're live again. Konnan and his goons show up! They get a better reaction than usual, probably because they’re coming out with a big Mexican and Cuban flags. K-Dawg also carries his briefcase and already has a mic in hand, greeting his latino nation. “We bout it bout it and rowdy rowdy!” Konnan drops a few of his catchphrases before addressing the main issue. “Yo Hogan, I heard you talking trash about this country on Monday. Just to make it clear, you still think Mexico is a dump!? Because if that’s how you feel, than we have a beef, vato! You know what it is, Hogan? It’s a challenge to you and your pendejos! Bring your ole trasero out here, cause we’re not messing around!” Hernandez, Homicide and Konnan are rocking up the crowd, waiting for an answer. No response… Konnan says Hogan is too scared to mess with LAX, just like Hall and Nash were. And he also agrees with Scott Steiner – Hogan is a coward for real. “Latin Fury” is angry that people call him a “Mexican Hulk Hogan”, they don’t know what they’re talking about. "Biggest difference between him and me is right here, ese!" Konnan punches his chest. “For a man who claims to have 24 inch pythons he has a small heart and an even smaller set of cojones! I have no respect for you, Hogan. Zero! I might have problems with guys like Rey Rey, but I do have respect for what they stand for. You know, we were close with Rey, but a lot of bad sh!t happened lately. That won’t change the fact I will always treat his family with love. The man in the front row, original Rey Mysterio, it’s a shout out to you! That man gave me a big break! I am who I am today because of him. Gracias, amigo!”

Rey Mysterio Sr. nods, but he is not overly enthusiastic about Konnan’s props. Leader of the LAX invites the uncle of our cruiserweight champion into the ring, so people could see the living legend better. Cheered on by the fans, he steps up and reluctantly shakes Konnan’s hand. As he was heading back to his seat, Homicide got in his face. Some trash talking, Rey Mysterio turns back to Konnan, who punches him in the face!! Homicide wastes no time and catches Rey Mysterio Sr… COP KILLA! A devastating move almost breaks the neck of a victim! Hernandez covers the limp body with a flag, while Konnan screams in the mic that if Rey doesn’t want to be a part of their familia, he would have no familia period, orale! LAX are leaving through the crowd, who shower them in boos. Mysterio Jr. is too late for the rescue, he slides in the ring and checks on his first trainer, calling for help! Gang poses as Rey holds on to his uncle. Not the best thing that could happen to Rey before his wager match. That one is coming right after our next match!


Quote:
In a bout that had great heat and great wrestling action, Eddie & Benoit defeated Ultimo Guerrero and Rey Bucanero in 12:36 when Chris Benoit defeated Ultimo Guerrero by submission with a Crippler Crossface. 81/100
Eddie and Chris are standing tall after the match. Guerrero dedicates this win to his old friend, so Benoit just lets Eddie speak. After Eddie pours his soul to the fans, he promises to beat the living crap out of Konnan for laying his hands on Rey Mysterio Sr! Konnan stepped over the line, and he has to pay for that! Guerrero says they're not done with Buffy T either, in fact, Piper started a war with the sh!t he pulled off tonight. Guerrero is dead serious, you could tell. He leaves the ring, twisting his heel across Bucanero's face! CMLL tag team champions are left behind, they failed to upset ex-champions twice in one night. Eddie and Pena will probably go visit Barr's grave now, to do the right thing. Tough night for the good guys so far...

We get a hype video for our main event. Psicosis and Rey Mysterio had numerous battles in the past, but this one is the biggest of them all. Mask and the crusierweight title are on the line! Many fans back Rey to win the match and put an end to this feud, but history asks us not to be so categorical with our predictions. Not only Rey has an injured knee, his family member just suffered a life-threatening inury. A lot of pressure put on the shoulders of our champion, let's wish him luck!

Rey Mysterio Jr is looking shook. LAX gang might have broken his uncle's neck, it looked really bad from the replays. "Mean Gene" Okerlund understands that it's not the best time for an interview, but still, what are Rey's thought before this high stakes match? "Mean Gene, truth to be told, I can only think about my family right now. I couldn't go to the hospital because of my match. I want to thank my manager Jimmy Hart for being there, he told me not to worry about it and get that mask from Psicosis' face. I'm very angry with Konnan, and I won't leave it as that. In the past he was like a father to me, but right now I can't even think of what I will do to him when we will meet face to face next time. Sorry, I gotta go..." Champ's mind is clouded, could he overcome the odds and pull this one out? Let's find out.

The mask is going off! Rey and Psicosis went to war, and even though Psicosis looked better in this match, his efforts didn't result in a positive outcome. Crowd encouraged Psicosis to obey the laws of lucha libre and surrender his mask. After a few minutes of hesitation Psicosis pulled the mask down and stood there fresh off his biggest loss. Psicosis had a staredown with Rey before leaving the winner alone with his mask and the cruiserweight title. Rey pointed his fingers at the sky, then posed on the turnbuckle, with prizes in both hands. Rey will remember this day for a loooong time. Good night everybody!

Final Rating: 82/100 (4.26 on TBS)

Default WCW Monday Nitro on TNT (Show #93)



Week 2, November 2000
Rose Garden, North West (12,084)


Welcome everybody to Monday Nitro on TNT! Schiavone, Tenay and Heenan talk about Thunder in Mexico and what happened there, how weird the atmosphere of the show was and how that night changed careers of numerous wrestlers. Psicosis was unmasked by Rey Mysterio Jr, who's uncle got ambushed by the LAX later in the night. Guerrero and Benoit fought for Art Barr's legacy, Vampiro held a ceremony dedicated to the life of Sting, Jarrett retained his television championship in a highly controversial match. Also that show marked a debut of Super Crazy in our company, as well as a return of Super Calo. To kick our night off, we get Roddy Piper standing in the middle of the ring. With a rowdy voice he welcomes everybody here tonight! "Hot Rod" cuts straight to the point, figuring out that Hulk Hogan never got a title shot from him. "Hogan, I am not giving you a title match until you prove me you really DID talk to Ted Turner that night. I didn't get any memo from our boss, so I figured that could be a fake call. Even if that call WAS from Mr. Turner, I simply won't allow you to challenge for the world heavyweight title until Bret Hart gets his fair one on one rematch. I promised "Hitman" that the match will take place at the Mayhem pay-per-view, so I guess you should wait for your match a little longer!"

Hulk Hogan is fuming, he comes out to the ring with Mike Awesome and Sid Vicious. They crack their fists and look like they are ready to tear Piper apart, but before they do that that our US champion wants to vent for a bit. "Piper, who do you think you are, dude? Last time checked, you lost your position to DDP, but now you're back in charge, throwing orders around and disobeying Turner? Well, let me tell you something, brother, I did talk to him and I got my match! The stipulation of me being unable to fight for the big gold belt was lifted after Bret dropped the strap, jack! I'm the biggest name in this company, and I deserve to get my revenge on Goldberg! I waited longer than Bret, and I am a United States champion for crying out loud!" Aha! Piper smiles after Hogan mentions that he is holding a championship already. Roddy says it's very simple - he's the only commissioner around here, he always was. DDP was just filling the position while he was taking some time off. As for the title match, he didn't disobey Turner. He just has the authority to decide when and where the match will take place. Ted just allowed Hogan back in the title picture, but it's up to Roddy to make the actual match. BANG! DDP comes out with Kanyon to ask if Piper is being serious? "I was filling the position!? GOOD GOD! Roddy, I was sorting the mess you left after yourself, and I've done much more in a couple of months than you did in almost a year! I didn't cover you up, bro, I was the boss until I got sick of it and quit!"

Triple H joins the party with Ric Flair. "The Game" is baffled, everyone in this ring is out of their minds! First Hogan talks about how he deserves to fight Goldberg before anyone else, then Piper tells us that an old, washed up Bret Hart will keep the company on hold until he decides to fight again, and then DDP puts an icing on the cake by saying he was sorting some mess out. "Page, you did not sort out anything, you only made it worse! You gave Goldberg a rematch, which led to a title change that returned Hogan in the title hunt and threw ME, The Game, out of the main event spot I truly deserve to have! I don't even know what morons like Goldberg and Steiner would add on top of your pile of crap, and believe me when I say it, I'll get back on them!" Ric asks Hunter for a mic... "Triple H should have been the one to beat Hart up! He's the best guy to represent our company, and he deserves his shot at the title more than anyone! Even more than me, WOO!" DDP asks Flair to stop sucking up to Triple H, but Ric parries it, stating that the only guy that sucks up or even sucks off is Kanyon! Kanyon decides to do his talking with fists, as he jumps on top of Flair! DDP and HHH start fighting aswell, with Hunter shoving Page into Sid. Vicious and Awesome quickly react by double teaming the People's Champ! Triple H also saves Ric from the wrath of The "Innovator of Offense", who then follows DDP's example and eats a double chokeslam from Hogan's pets! Piper had enough!! "Stop it, you fools! If you want to fight so bad, I'll find you some opponents! That also applies to you two! And you too! I got it! Everyone gets a match tonight! Hogan will defend his title, Triple H and Flair will meet in the main event with Kanyon and DDP in a tag team match... and you big smelly oafs will have a match right now!" Hogan gets in Piper's face and Roddy dares him to start another brawl. Hulk thinks against that... Woof-woof!


Quote:
In a match that had some good action but not much in the way of heat, Vicious & Awesome defeated The Varsity Club in 7:11 when Mike Awesome defeated Mike Rotunda by pinfall with an Awesome Bomb after Hulk Hogan's distraction. 67/100
Mike and Rick were a little rusty after a long time away from the ring. Steiner had a long term injury, while Rotunda embraced a backstage role, being one of our road agents. They did give Mike and Sid a fair fight, but ultimately Hulk tipped the scale in favor of his dudes. Hogan got into the ring to lay some boots on fallen grapplers, but sirens stopped him! Scott Steiner didn't rush to the ring, but instead verbally assaulted Hulk. "HOGAN, YOU TRAILER PARK REDNECK TRASH, I'M DONE CHASING YOUR WRINKLY RED AND YELLOW A*S ALL AROUND THE CONTINENT! IF YOU WANNA FIGHT GOLDBERG FOR THE BELT, I'LL BE THERE TOO! IF AN OLD PIECE OF S*IT LIKE YOU WAS ABLE TO INTIMIDATE TED TURNER, THEN I'LL DO THE SAME! THERE'S NOTHING FINER THAN SCOTT STEINER AND AT MAYHEM SOMEBODY's GONNA RAISE THE BIGGEST AARM IN THE WORLD AND GIVE THE BIG GOLD BELT TO THE BIG BAD BOOTY DADDY! HOLLER, IF YA HEAR ME!" Steiner decided to change his course? "Freakzilla" is throwing his name in the contendership hat, and it's getting crowded there! Scott shows off his peaks on the ramp, with Hogan drilling him with his red eyes. This rivalry is going on for a very long time, and at some point those two will meet one on one. At least we all hope so!

Backstage Torrie Wilson thanks Finlay for stepping up for her last week, she hopes Punk will leave her alone now. Speak of the devil! CM Punk approaches Finlay and Torrie with Madusa. "I might back off a little for now, but only because Madusa wants to fight you in the women's title tournament. She will take you to school and you will be in such pain after the match, that no magic pills would make it easier. Not even those Kidman liked to shove down his throat after every match! And by the way, Dave... That will be on you. You foolishly decided to give women a chance. Truth is, they have no chance against Madusa, she will clean out the entire division, one pretty face at a time!" Piper listened to Punk behind his back for a bit, then informed us that he will make that match official! "And as Finlay beat you up last week, he will get a little reward later on tonight. Singles match for US title! You love to fight, don't you, you dirty irish bastard?" Piper drops his smirk and leaves. He kept Punk in line, "rewarded" Finlay and gave Torrie and Madusa a match. Good job!

John Cena is making his way to the ring, with Heenan rolling his eyes when Tenay and Schiavone put him over for his hellacious match with Bill DeMott from Halloween Havoc. John is all smiles, he plays up to the crowd a bit and then addresses the conversation he had with Hulk Hogan last week. John says he asked Hulkster for a title rematch and got rejected, which is nothing bad of course. One thing that puzzled him though, is the manner in which he got rejected. John knows he's a rookie, but he won't be pushed around like that! He knows respect is earned, and he's more than willing to earn every bit of it through hard work and dedication. He asks Hogan not to sleep on him, because he proved one man wrong already. Cena went to a war with DeMott two weeks ago, and he didn't have a chance to shake his opponent's hand after the match, so he would like to do that right now, for all the world to see what respect means to him! Cena's call out actually works, but not on DeMott. Jerry Sags of all people, one half of the Nasty Boys is making his way to the ring! Looks like we have a match!


Quote:
In an extremely short match, John Cena defeated Jerry Sags in 3:03 by DQ after Bill DeMott's interference. 22/100
Match wasn't pretty at all, as Sags brawled around with the youngster until DeMott slid in the ring and kicked Cena low. "Boy got balls, huh?" - Heenan drops. It's a DQ, two guys put the boots on a rookie with ref asking them to stop. Eventually they leave John on the mats, laughing all the way to the back. Doesn't look like Cena got Bill's respect at all... Hogan was watching the return match of his cronie backstage on the TV, when Okerlund creeped up on him. "Mean Gene" asked Hulk about his upcoming title defence against Finlay and got a generic response. "Let me tell ya something, Mean Gene, this belt isn't going anywhere! Finlay may be a tough SOB, but I'm ready to body slam him into the ground and drop the leg on him for the one, two and three, brother!" Okerlund then looks to follow up that answer with a few questions about Scott Steiner, but Hulk completely ignores him. "And whatcha gonna do, Finlay, when Hulkamania runs wild on you!?"

We get a video package for Team 3D. Brother Ray runs his mouth about beating Road Warriors not once, but twice now! Devon puts his five cents too, saying it was a big honor to kick their legendary asses, but now they're looking for new challenges. "Gotta say, Devon, beating Hawk and Animal was easier than I thought it would be. To be frank with you, they disappointed me. I hoped we would have this big rivalry, but it's not a rivalry when the other side loses twice!" Devon just adds "TESTIFY!", as he always does.

Jeff Jarrett is standing backstage with Mean Gene, they do not look like they are happy to see each other. Okerlund is addressing the television champion with the judging tone, clearly berating Jarrett not only for his arrogant behavior, but also for his words and actions back in Mexico. Racism has no place in a public company like WCW and "The Chosen One" should apologize for what he did last week! "I tell you what, you geriatric slapnut, I am not gonna apologize to anybody! Jeff Jarrett is not sorry for what he said, because what he said was the T-R-U-T-H! People who are crying about my words are weaklings, they need to suck it up and beat it! You snowflakes are making me sick, so stop whining and get the hell outta my country if you don't like something!" Jarrett was about to walk away, but Norman Smiley joined the interview set and informed JJ he's a bad influence on the kids! A true champion should be an example to the younger generation, a role model! Jeff laughs it off, saying Smiley doesn't know what being champion is all about, and throws some coins at him, saying those money are for the burrito he took away from Norman back on Thursday.

- You know, I'm not a thief. People like you and me are not cut from the same cloth. I'm above guys like you! I'm a star!

Norman picks up a nickel and looks at it, then at Okerlund. "I guess they didn't lie when they said Jarrett couldn't draw a dime!" Jeff is beside himself after hearing that and cracks a guitar over Smiley's skull before spitting insults at him and telling him to bring his A game for their match! Time for some ads! Right after a brief commercial break we catch Smiley's and Jarrett's entrances. The crowd is firmly on the side of a "Screamin' Superstar" who is still shaking off the damage of the Acoustic Equalizer. "The Chosen One" makes his way to the ring without a guitar, at least Norman won't eat another instrument today.


Quote:
In a match that had some good action but not much in the way of heat, Jeff Jarrett defeated Norman Smiley in 7:01 by pinfall with The Stroke after Dustin Rhodes distracted Norman Smiley. 73/100
This was a pretty good TV match for what it was, where both guys showcased their adequate wrestling skills aswell as the ability to connect with the crowd when they want to. Smiley got a big pop for embarassing Jarrett with a "Big Wiggle" after reversing a Figure 4, but ultimately fell short after Dustin Rhodes showed up in the aisle. Decent showing for Smiley, but it would take much more than that to beat Double J for the TV title! After the bell Jeff and Dustin continue to lay the boots on the ex-hardcore champion who's screaming like a stuck pig. Disco Inferno runs out to help his ex-partner, as he has unfinished business with The Revolution and Jarrett, after falling short to win the Television title at Halloween Havoc. Disco picks up the stick and asks Jeff and Dustin to pass a challenge to Steven Regal, who blasted him with brass knucks at the pay-per-view! "After I'll beat him one on one, I will push for a rematch between us, Jeff! And I will get it after me and my best friend Norman will beat Palumbo and O'Haire, leaving Piper no other choice! Our last dance will leave you flat on your back, toots!" Smiley is genuinely surprised that Disco came to bail him out and called him his best friend, but he didn't agree to a tag match against the Natural Born Thrillers by the looks of things!

Sanders, O'Haire and Palumbo are standing backstage with "Mean Gene". First off, Okerlund asks them about the statement of Disco Inferno, who basically issued a challenge to them. Palumbo opened his mouth, but Sanders cut him off, saying that Disco Inferno is not their main concern, he's hardly a threat to a bunch of young hungry guys like them. "Mean Gene, we beat Meng to a pulp a week ago, we beat him so bad that he is not going to return to this company, that's a fact!" Sanders goes on and names the victims of the New Blood faction, hyping up how impressive their start in the company was so far. "It's not much of a surprise when you have a leader like me calling the shots, I mean, I'm a pretty big deal, Gene!" Palumbo says their leader is Roddy Piper, and Mike tells him to don't be stupid, Piper is their BOSS. "Chuckie, do us all a favor and stay quiet when grownups are talking. Thank you!" Irritated Palumbo looks at O'Haire who's rubbing his hands in anticipation of the fight they are getting tonight. Gene asks about that too, are they really ready to face Road Warriors, especially when they are in such a foul mood after losing to Team 3D? Sanders says Sean and Chuck won't be bullied in that squared circle, they are big boys and they can take on anyone, even the "scary" Road Warriors. Intense O'Haire grabs Okerlund by his hand to get the mic closer to himself and says that The New Blood is here to take the place of the Road Warriors. They don't fear or respect anybody! Sanders didn't like that Sean put his five cents in, but he lets that slide. "All I have to add is that LOD is SOL, and you know what that means!" You can't mention LOD in WCW, Sanders!

We get a recap of Thunder in Mexico, where Psicosis was unmasked, Rey Mysterio's uncle was attacked by LAX and where Vampiro held a ceremony in memory of the Sting. The success of that show lead the WCW management to decision to hold more shows outside of the USA, to truly live up to the word “world” in their companies name. Next time WCW will visit Japan, and you can get the details on the match card from Okerlund via Hotline! On Thursday we will see Psicosis in action, and we also await that Rey Mysterio, Chris Benoit and Eddie Guerrero will address Konnan and his goons, which may result in some hot-tempered action. And now we are ready for our next match! Sanders leads "Natural Born Thrillers" O'Haire and Palumbo to the ring, and the trio awaits for the arrival of Hawk and Animal. They are here! This one will be one ugly fight...


Quote:
In an extremely short match, Road Warriors defeated Chuck Palumbo and Sean O'Haire in 4:20 when Road Warrior Hawk defeated Sean O'Haire by pinfall after a Doomsday Device. 45/100
The youth couldn't beat the experience today, but they didn't go down without swinging! O'Haire and Palumbo didn't meet individuals like Hawk and Animal, and they were surprised to find out that their heavy kicks and punches were not as effective against the legendary a** kickers. What would be more than enough against usual men was nothing to those beasts who encouraged the rookies to take their best shots. A superkick from O'Haire made Animal groggy, but Hawk tagged himself in and took Sean down with a Flying Lariat! O'Haire stood out showcasing freakish agility for a man of his size and made a back flip off the top rope right over Hawk. In the end though Palumbo was blasted in a jaw and Sean made a back flip of Animal's shoulders after taking a seat on the Doomsday Device. Sanders got quiet and left the scene with his mates, leaving the mic time to the winners.

"TEAM 3D, WE HEARD YOU RUNNING YOUR DAMN MOUTHS ABOUT BEATING US TWICE, BUT THAT IS A LOAD OF CRAP! TELL 'EM HAWK!"
"ME AND ANIMAL DIDN'T LOSE, WE WERE SCREWED BY NICK PATRICK AT THE PAY-PER-VIEW AND LAST WEEK WE DIDN'T EVEN EAT THE FALL, DOG-FACED GREMLIN DID! SO YOU BETTER SHUT IT, OR WE WILL CAVE YOUR INBREAD FACES IN SO HARD YOUR MOMMA WON'T RECOGNIZE YOU! WE WANT A REMATCH, AND ANY STIPULATION WILL DO!"

With that Hawk drops the microphone and the winners leave. It's hard to argue with those units, and they deserve a rematch like nobody else. They were on fire and had an impressive string of wins prior to the battle with Ray and Devon, so it only makes sense to give the veterans what they want. The announce desk discusses the beef between the tag teams and Tenay says he's pretty sure we will see Team 3D in action this Thursday! Heenan says that you don't want to piss Road Warriors off, so you have to be careful with your actions. Schiavone doubts that Ray and Devon will be careful, and that what makes this battle even better!

We are in the back, Ric Flair is sipping some fine wine in the company of Triple H. Naitch talks about how embarrassing it is for him to fight the likes of Kanyon who make a joke out of this business, the business that Flair gave his blood, sweat and tears to. Ric goes on to add that DDP is even worse, that man has no talent and no place being in the same company with them. "He's a freaking manager and should have stayed one. He couldn't lace my boots in that ring even if his life depended on it, Hunter. No talent, no ability! Only got his run because of having a good relationship with the front office!" Triple H nods and says he couldn't agree more with Ric. The fact that they have to fight them tonight is absurd and this company is really a big mess, people weren't lying. HHH also talks about carrying DDP to the best match of his career, dismissing the match "The People's Champ" had with Goldberg. "Speaking of being in a good relationship with front office Ric... now that Piper is back running this joint, we should really make the most out of it. I know you go way back with the man, so it only makes sense to use that for our own benefit. Bret Hart, Goldberg, Hogan, they are all out of it. Me and you, Naitch, it should be us representing this company and the big gold belt!" Ric enthusiastically nods and says he will drink for that, wooooo! Trips smirks and tells his pal to lay off the booze for a bit, save some for the later after they kick DDP and Kanyon's collective asses! "The Game" and "The Nature Boy" then hear sounds of a struggle, as the hardcore match between Raven and Great Muta takes place behind their door!


Quote:
In a match that had some good action but not much in the way of heat, Raven defeated Great Muta in 8:51 by pinfall with an Evenflow DDT after a distraction from Lisa Marie Varon. 64/100
Muta's run in WCW so far is not as flashing as one could expect from the japanese legend, but he's still putting on a show for the fans! Today was not an exception, as he battled with Raven and almost ended up with a title victory. He initiated the fight in the first place and made Raven scratch and bite in this brawl! A usually technically sound Muta left the submission moves in the locker for this one and after making a tour for Raven's head around the backstage area he flew over and out of the ring. The momentum that Muta had vanished when Raven ducked the Asian Mist that blinded the referee instead. Lisa Marie Varon came out and distracted Muta, who got a chairshot to the dome seconds later. Evenflow DDT on the chair was enough to take Muta out of contention. Still your WCW hardcore champion - Raven! The despicable man gets the microphone out of Lisa's hands and cuts a promo about being the real victim in WCW. "All I can hear is "poor Sting, is he all right?" and yet nobody asks if I'm okay having to deal with maniacs like Muta day in and day out! WHAT ABOUT ME? WHAT ABOUT RAVEN!? I'm not okay, but that's just a part of who I am. Go on, overlook me, dismiss me, forget about me... because that will benefit me in the long run, when I decide to cash in my prize. I got rid off Sting, I got rid off Meng and I will get rid off everyone who will interfere in my master plan... Quote The Raven, Nevermore!"

Lisa assists Raven to the back, but there's nobody to take care of Muta. He's still dazed after landing head first on the chair. As Raven goes up the ramp, Vampiro comes out! They pass each other without any problem, although Vamp could really get an easy title win right there. Instead of attacking the injured Raven, the brooding man in paint enters the ring and circles around the "Pro Wrestling Master"... "Mutoh San, your disdain of me cut me deeply inside and I was disheartened to find out that you don't see anything special in me... I tried to change your mind for too long now, and I'm sick and tired of you treating me like a joke... Because you are the real joke! Where's Keiji Mutoh the kickass puro legend that takes no prisoners in this ring? Where's your hunger for true violence, the lust for blood and guts spilling over the canvas? I don't recognize the man who I rated so highly, and it's safe to say that I am the one who should be disappointed, Mutoh san. We've had our battles, but it's time to put a nail in your coffin... it's time for me to spare you for good and bless you with a mercy kill, my former idol. I'm not gonna do it tonight, because I want you to face the disciple of death in your own home... The Land of the Rising Sun!" Muta is on his knees now, and Vamp follows the example and sits just like Muta. They stare each other down as we go to a commercial break...

And we are back with The Naturals, Andy Douglas and Chase Stevens standing in the ring with their new manager Tammy Lynn Sytch. Blonde manager is looking good in the company of two young studs, who still can believe that they hooked up with the original diva. Tammy says that after looking for some big name clients she realized she needed some fresh meat to make a delicates out of. She berates old guys like Hart, Hall, Nash and Flair, holding a grudge for rejection deeply inside, and states that her new boys are way better looking and way more athletic than some of the "big boys"! After shining up her clients Tammy issues an open challenge to any tag team in the back! Hall and Nash, The Outsiders, come out lazily before anyone else! Kev and Scott mock Tammy for her choice of clients, pointing out she needs two studs to fill the gap... in her heart, yeah. Hall then asks if he heard it right, Tammy called her jabronies a "meat"? "Mama, I know you like your meat, and I heard from a good friend of mine that you are pretty good with it, but the bad wolves do not like to be called old and lazy like that, and for that we will leave you without dinner, capiche?" Main event players step in the ring and bully the newcomers like it's their first day in high school. Looks like we have a match!


Quote:
In an extremely short match, The Outsiders defeated The Naturals in 2:50 when Kevin Nash defeated Chase Stevens by pinfall with a Jacknife Powerbomb. 48/100
Our tag matches do not last very long tonight, surely it will change in the main event? Another squash, but this time the youngings didn't get any say in the match whatsoever. They were rag dolled around the ring with Fallaway and Sidewalk Slams before Kev called it a night putting Chase down with a Powerbomb. During the match Nash also yelled that Buffy T may have tricked them last week, but they are by no means letting it slide. Dominant victory here, Tammy is not looking pleased and lets her new boys know that after the beating they got.

Sid Vicious and Mike Awesome were watching that segment backstage, breathing heavily in the monitor. Probably their sights are also set on the tag titles now? We know by now that Hogan negotiated a world title shot for himself down the line and is not willing to vacate the US championship either. Both Sid and Mike are far from cruiserweights and it feels like they are past their hardcore battles too. TV title picture is too crowded, so it looks like Hogan's entourage will continue to work together. Mike asks if Sid has a girlfriend, puzzling his new partner.

- No I don't have one. Why are you asking me that, you're not dropping me hints, are you?
- What? Do I look like a guy that likes guys? I am a woman lover one hundred percent. Here's a picture of my girlfriend, isn't she hot?

Mike flashes the picture of Kia Stevens to "The Master and The Ruler of the World". Sid's scowl changes to maniacal laughter he can't restraint after seeing the photo.

- Dude, are you laughing at my woman?
- Am I?
- Yes you are, and I won't take it!
- What makes you think that I'm laughing at her?
- Because you are!
- I'm not laughing at her, dumbass, I'm laughing at you.
- Me? What's wrong with me!?
- You look like that 70's guy on this photo.
- Hey leave that alone, you jackass, I have my hobbies. I didn't ridicule you for playing softabll, so do me a favor!
- You have anything against softball?
- Well yeah! It's SOFT!
- Not when I play it, mullet boy.

The tension is rising, but one sentence from Hulk Hogan stops the debate. The US championship match is next, and it's our semi-main event of the evening! "Time to drop the leg, brothers!" Before the entrance of Hogan we get a graphic that informs us that Bret Hart will make his return next week! That will be "Hitman's" first appearance after losing the world heavyweight championship to Goldberg!


Quote:
In a match that had some good action and average heat, Hulk Hogan defeated Finlay in 10:25 by pinfall with a Leg Drop. Hulk Hogan makes defence number 5 of his WCW United States title. 73/100
This was a very solid brawl that had some basic chain wrestling in it, with Hulkster getting the upperhand with some dirty tricks like back rakes and eye gouging. Finlay is no stranger to such tricks and uses them too in return, in attempt to even out the chances. Finlay dropped his shillelagh in the corner before the match and was looking to use it on Hulk, but Mike Awesome prevented that by snatching the club and throwing it to Sid. A little distraction from Mike, and Sid hits Finlay in the teeth! Hogan looks around as if he doesn't know what happened, but quickly runs into the ropes and drops the leg to retain the title in ten minutes! After the match is over the Titan Towers 2000 in Sid and Mike get in the ring and stomp the heck out of the tough irish man. Hogan is playing air guitar with his title, and yells in the camera that sooner than later he will get yet another championship to his collection and become the undisputed champion of the world, jack! We switch back to the TurnerTron which shows us that Madusa and CM Punk jumped Torrie Wilson backstage, and now the "real women's wrestler" drags an "eye candy" by her hair with Punk talking badly about Billy Kidman in the background. The pair flees the scene when Scott Steiner walks by, he saves Torrie by accident. Torrie is very grateful to Steiner for his assist, but gets stunned when Scotty tells her to thank him in his hotel room after the show. What a gent! He's coming through the curtain now and asks for a f'n mic! He didn't come ut to save Finlay at all, he just wants to verbally attack Hogan once more...

"HOGAN, YOU PIECE OF **IT, YOU AIN'T GETTING THAT WORLD TITLE WHILE I AM IN THIS STUPID COMPANY! YOU GOT YOUR SHOT BY BEING A GIANT TRASHBAG THAT HAS TO PLEAD FOR ANOTHER RUN LIKE A FAKE WHINY BIT**!! YOU AIN'T MAN ENOUGH TO FACE ME, SO I GUESS I NEED TO GET THAT BIG GOLD BELT FIRST FOR YOU TO BEND OVER TO TEH STEINER RECLINER!" Fans are fully on the side of "Big Poppa Pump" here, who doesn't like some profanity directed at some of the most protected guys in the wrestling industry? "TED TURNER, I TRIED TO CALL YOUR MULTI-BILLION DOLLAR AS*, BUT I GUESS I WOULD HAVE TO MEET YOU FACE TO FACE TO GET WHAT I WANT! AND AS FOR YOU TWO BUTTCHEEKS IN THE RING, ME AND RICKY CHALLENGE YOU TO A TAG MATCH! THE DOG-FACED GREMLIN WILL BITE YOUR STUPID AS**S AND THEN I WILL BEAT THEM SOME MORE! HOLLER IF YA HEAR ME!!" Steiner drops the mic and even gives Hogan a bird that didn't get into the camera because of our brilliant production crew. Heenan's eyes glee, but he doesn't add anything, staying professional. Schiavone is very sorry for Steiner's words and adds that behavior like that shouldn't be tolerated and it wasn't the greatest moment in the history of our sport. Still to come, it's the main event of the evening: Triple H and Ric Flair vs. Kanyon and Diamond Dallas Page! The graphic then shows up to hype some matches made for Thunder. Eddie Guerrero and Chris Benoit will give Rey Mysterio Jr a chance to avenge the attack on his uncle, as they have a six man tag against LAX! Hertha meets Torrie Wilson in a first round of the Women's title tournament. Team 3D will be in action, so will be Vader, Shamrock and Goldberg! Booker T and Buff Bagwell are also advertised to appear on the show. The new tag team champions are celebrating their victory right now and Piper allowed them to miss the TV show from the kindness of his brave heart. We're once again with "Mean" Gene Okerlund, who's joined at this time by DDP and Kanyon. They heard what HHH and Flair had to say about them earlier tonight, and it's clear as day that the former boss and his very good friend will not just let their names be degraded like that. DDP does most of the talking here...

"All that monkey talk from Triple H and Ric Flair did nothing but fire me up for this bout, Mean Gene! They think they are above us, they think they have won the match already. That will not happen tonight! I will give you props Hunter, you really did bring out the best out of me at Halloween Havoc, you beat me 1-2-3 and I admit that you smacked me good that night. Still, you would be a fool not to admit that I pushed you to your absolute limit and on another day the outcome could be different. It's not only about me though, as Kanyon here got the short end of the stick in his bout with Flair only because of Ric's dirty tactics! I can guaran-damn-tee you that this man right here is better than "The Nature Boy" right now and will be a main event player in no time!" Okerlund gives some time to Kanyon now... "That's right, Page! Don't be mad at us for being who we are, for being two of the most passionate grapplers in this industry, two of the most hard-working guys in the locker room! Me and DDP have rode many miles together and we also opened and closed the PowerPlant to hone our skills, chasing our dreams! Triple H, you are jealous of DDP because he got to the absolute top of the mountain before you! And you Flair, you say diamonds are forever. Well that's not true, old man, because we have a Diamond Cutter right here and you won't weasel your way out of the match tonight!" Kanyon walks off first, with DDP admiring the words about his finisher. GOOD GOD! Back to you, gentlemen!


Quote:
In a bout that featured great action and a good crowd, Diamond Dallas Page and Kanyon defeated Ric Flair and Triple H in 14:29 when DDP defeated Ric Flair by pinfall with a Diamond Cutter. 85/100
Kanyon is some kind of prophet now? Amazing TV match that had a lot of drama and great response from the fans. Before the match even began, Flair put the microphone between his legs and pushed his crotch in Kanyon's direction, letting out a loud WOOOO! Short end of the stick, huh? Lots of chops, Flair got back body dropped and thrown outside of the ring while Triple H executed his power moves on Kanyon. The spark between DDP and HHH is there, and the bout picks up when they are slugging it off inside the ring. The finish came to life after Kanyon superkicked "The Game" out of the ring and pushed Ric into the Diamond Cutter. To prevent the fall from being broken up Kanyon went through the ropes with a dive, leaving the referee to count for three in peace. Commentators talk about how well Kanyon and DDP work as a tag team and how big of a victory that is for them. Ric is back to senses and he's having a meltdown! Trips tries to calm the man down, but it's not working. Finally the good guys have done their bit and got the win! Triple H looks at both of them from the squared circle, knowing very well they will fight some more. The game is not over just yet, but Nitro is! Good night everybody!

Final Rating: 88/100 (7.55 on TNT)

Out of the blue, I know. No prediction contest because it's been to long to remember anything that happened in this diary, even I had to go through notes for a couple of hours to make some sense of this mess. It can be a one off, or one of those last ditch efforts to finish the virtual year in WCW with a bang. Thunder's card is somewhat set, but I'll hold it off for now.
