WCW Monday Nitro preview - 17/01/2000
Nitro is heading to Columbus Ohio just 24 hours after the first Pay Per View of 2000, Souled Out. World Championship Wrestling will be building towards their next event in just five weeks, Superbrawl. Souled Out had a jammed packed card with plenty of explosive action as we saw a new WCW World Heavyweight Champion crowned in the Crippler Chris Benoit.
WCW World Heavyweight Champion Chris Benoit will be at Nitro on Monday as he kick starts his first ever reign atop WCW. Will we see see the Crippler in action or will he just talk about his delight at being the new WCW Champion?
Last night we saw the New World Order reclaim power once again within World Championship Wrestling when Big Sexy Kevin Nash became the Commissioner after he defeated the Hardcore Legend Terry Funk. After several gruelling minutes of hardcore action, Nash dropped Funk with the Jacknife Powerbomb to take control of WCW. The nWo are now running the show with Kevin Nash at the helm of World Championship Wrestling. But what does the booker man have to say on Nitro? Well Nash has announced privately that he will address a few things to kick off Nitro with the first ever New World Order wrestling address.
Billy Kidman last night took on the triple threat theatre as he took on members of the Revolution. His Filthy Animal team mates Konnan and Rey Mysterio Jr had been taken out in the weeks leading up to Souled Out, so Kidman was left to stand alone. After defeating Dean Malenko and Perry Saturn, Kidman came up against the newest member of the Revolution, The Wall. Inside Caged Heat, the Wall came out on top much to the delight of the Franchise Shane Douglas. Will we see the Revolution marching forward or will we see their feud with the Filthy Animals continue?
Last night Brian Knobbs retained his WCW Hardcore Championship in a four the hard way match up. Tonight he takes on one of the men he faced last night at Souled Out, the Monster Meng. Who will come out on top in this hardcore contest?
Also in action on Nitro:
Big Poppa Pump Scott Steiner of the nWo will be taking on Konnan of the Filthy Animals in one on one action.
The former Alex Wright, Berlyn will be taking on the Dark Angel Vampiro in a singles contest.
Thank you to everyone who has read and made a comment so far. Hopefully I will get the show up in the next few days and you will enjoy it as much as I have had writing it.
