WCW Monday Nitro Preview- May 7, 2001
World Championship Wrestling is back! WCW and Monday Nitro returns Monday, May 7, 2001, when Nitro debuts on the USA Network! WCW has been on a hiatus ever since March 26, 2001, when WCW held its “Night of Champions” edition of Monday Nitro in Panama City, Florida. May 7, however, Monday Nitro is back and it will be a night filled with excitement!
In what promises to be an action-packed night, the main event is where the most action will be out because Booker T defends his newly won WCW World Heavyweight Championship against three-time champion Diamond Dallas Page! Booker T is currently the reigning WCW World Heavyweight and United States Champion after defeating Scott Steiner in a Title vs. Title match on the “Night of Champions” Monday Nitro. But after tonight, Booker T may not be the World Champion as DDP is looking to once again win the title! This is the kind of match you would see on Pay Per View in any other promotion, but WCW is going to give you this huge match in the main event on Monday Nitro!
World Championship Wrestling is a promotion filled with prestige and many legendary stars. On the debut of Monday Nitro on the USA Network, we will hear from two of the most influential people within the past decade; Eric Bischoff and Ric Flair! Both men will speak their minds on anything and everything, so you will surely not want to miss the opportunity to hear what they've got to say!
Also, Shane Helms goes one-on-one with Shannon Moore in a non-title match, the team of Lex Luger and Buff Bagwell take on David Flair and Crowbar, and much, much, more! Other stars at Monday Nitro will include Disco Inferno, Jim Duggan, Lance Storm, Rick Steiner, and Scott Steiner!
Monday Nitro is back, and it is back on a whole new network! Don’t forget to tune into the USA Network this Monday night at 8 PM Eastern Standard Time! ‘The Professor’ Mike Tenay and ‘The Voice of WCW’ Tony Schiavone will call the action for Monday Nitro on a show you will not want to miss!
