Brown is a former American Footballer playing as a linebacker. Monty Brown set several records and those are still standing today. Brown retired from American Football to become a professional wrestler and has signed a deal to work with World Championship Wrestling despite having a the desire to work for the opposite company, the World Wrestling Federation. Chris Spradlin whom some may know as Wife Beater and most recently Chris Hero, Spradlin attended the Blue Bloods Wrestling Camp in the year 2000. David Bautista, a bodybuilder who had previously attended training at the PowerPlant but decided it wasn't for him has decided to return and give wrestling another shot. John Cena, Cena was scouted by WCW back in 2000 when he was an extra for the movie Ready To Rumble and has been described as a potential player in the future of the wrestling business and Jorge Rivera Serrano who some may know as Skayde, a Lucha Libre wrestler who is not going to spend much time in the PowerPlant due to the experience he already possesses. Eric Bischoff has apparently hired Dusty Rhodes to a scout role and it was him who picked up most of these individuals. More are expected to be added to the territory in the coming weeks.
World Championship Wrestling
June 20th, 2001
World Championship Wrestling hosts another exciting edition of Wednesday Night Nitro and judging by what went down during the closing minutes of last week will be one the fans don't want to miss out on.
Yes, as we just alluded to, the closing minutes of last weeks show featured Scott Steiner seemingly closing in on winning the WCW World Heavyweight Championship only to be denied due to interference by Diamond Dallas Page who entered the ring and hit Scott Steiner with the devastating Diamond Cutter, Steiner was named the victor but it was by way of disqualification so the title remained with Booker T. It is fully expected that Scott Steiner will have some harsh words for Dallas Page for costing him the WCW World title and should an altercation between the two WCW performers come about, it's sure to send fireworks flying in the air.
But, last week wasn't just about the WCW World Championship scene, oh no. We were also informed that Booker T was stripped of the WCW United States Championship and that left us without a champion but, Eric Bischoff soon fixed that problem by announcing an 8 Man Tournament. On tonights Nitro, we see two out of the four inaugural matches take place as Nature Boy Ric Flair takes on The Wall & Lance Storm does battle with Shawn Stasiak. Ric Flair is certainly hoping that he can advance in the tournament and hopefully face Jeff Jarrett in the finals after last weeks altercation. Tune in to witness who advances and who is left a broken man when they are defeated and knocked out of the tournament.
But wait, there's more. The team of Totally Buff (Lex Luger & Buff Bagwell) had a run in with each other last week, mainly caused by their manager, Miss Elizabeth. WCW.com has been told by Buff Bagwell himself that the team have things back on track, including Mizz Elizabeth, and are ready to come back from not only their loss but their problems from last week as they team to face opponents not known by WCW.com.
And finally for this preview, last week the WCW Cruiserweight Champion Sugar Shane Helms fell victim to a serious dose of mind games from an unknown man or woman following his match with Chavo Guerrero Jr. This week, Shane Helms looks to try and get his head back on track as he faces former 3 Count Member, Shannon Moore in a non-title capacity. But, should Shane Helms lose this match, what does that mean for Moore? will he be next in line with a shot at the Cruiserweight Championship? Only time will tell.
Also expect to see stars like Chuck Palumbo, Sean O'Haire, Jeff Jarrett, The WCW World Heavyweight Champion; Booker T, The Filthy Animals and more!
Tune in to WCW Wednesday Nitro at 8PM as The Professor Mike Tenay & Tony Schiavone call the exciting action.
