Default Re: WCW 2001- The Trio Ownership

And here is the August End of the Month Report! Oh, and yeah, the next Nitro will be 2 hours. The show just posted and the next show was of the EWR booking style that I used for the most part during this BTB. And as I continue this BTB, my booking style will be that some extent. I will use the booking segment in EWR, but just like I planned for WWF 97, it is secondary to free lance booking. The tv ratings, ppv buy-rates, injuries, contracts, etc. is all I like with EWR. So enough of my babbling, here is the report.

WCW End of the Month Report- August


News and Rumors


Quote:
~So it is official; Wednesday Nitro will be going to primetime on NBC. Starting Wednesday, September 4, 2001, WCW’s flagship program, Nitro, will be airing from 8-10 PM EST. Wednesday Nitro had originally been airing from 10-11 PM on NBC, but after strong ratings, the return of a star like Sting, and good publicity, NBC has made the decision to push Nitro to primetime. In the month of August, Nitro recorded ratings of 2.22 for 08/01, 2.20 on 08/08, and a low 2.07 rating, which was featured Jeff Jarrett versus Ric Flair, and Booker T versus Mike Awesome in a tables match, as well as the big return of Sting. The show was heavily hyped on the previous week, but yet, the ratings dropped .13. The 08/22 edition of Nitro, the last one before Souled Out, shot back up to a 2.18, but was still the second lowest rating. The 08/29 edition of Nitro scored a 2.22 rating, fresh off of an Eric Bischoff turn at Souled Out. Although the rating was only 2.22, it will be the final Wednesday Nitro in the late night slot, and also featured the return of the nastiest, but most recognized, faction in the history of professional wrestling, the New World Order.

~The Souled Out buy-rate came in at a very strong 1.18, which improved from the .76 rating Slamboree had back in May. However, the Souled Out buy-rate still could not match up to Judgment Day’s buy-rate, which scored a 1.64 rate. However, WCW officials are still very impressed with the PPV. The show featured a great Cruiserweight Title match between Shane Helms and Chavo Guerrero Jr., a decent ladder match with Lance Storm and Hugh Morris, a relatively disappointing World Heavyweight Title match between Booker T and Scott Steiner, the return of Rey Misterio Jr., and of course, an explosive main event featuring Sting and Ric Flair taking on Jeff Jarrett and Mike Awesome, as well as the turning of Eric Bischoff from a face to heel, as he aligned himself with Jarrett, Awesome, and Steiner.

~WCW creative is apparently quite unimpressed with Booker T. Rumor has it that the creative team think that the Nitro ratings dropped off in August because the crowd was unable to get behind Booker T, and are also upset with his ability to carry Scott Steiner to a good match at Souled Out. Creative apparently thought very negatively about the match, and rumor has it that Booker T will either be dropping the Title on September, 4, when Nitro goes primetime, or at Fall Brawl, the upcoming PPV. The plan is to get Booker away from the Title scene for a while, and then try to re-build him as a main event star. For now, possible replacement champions are Jeff Jarrett, Ric Flair, Scott Steiner, and of course, Sting.

~Fall Brawl, the upcoming September PPV, has always been known for having the War Games at the PPV. In the nineties, the War Games were held at Fall Brawl for 6 straight years, from 1993 to 1998. However, no War Games matches were held in 1999 or 2000. Right now, there is a rumor going around the War Games will be returning at Fall Brawl, however, that is clearly a rumor. The War Games are heavily rumored to return to WCW at some point within the next year, but it isn’t known if the War Games will indeed return at Fall Brawl ’01. If they do, possible teams could be Ric Flair, Sting, Booker T, Cal Anderson, and maybe even Arn Anderson, going against Jeff Jarrett, Scott Steiner, Mike Awesome, and possibly Eric Bischoff. It seems that the roster doesn’t have enough depth right now for the War Games to return, but we shall wait and see if there is any mention of the War Games on the return to primetime for Nitro, this Wednesday, September 4.

~Contracts continue to get closer to their expiration date in WCW. Air Paris and Jim Duggan have only 1 month left on their contract, while Big Vito has 3 months left, and Scott Steiner has 4 months left. As of right now, all signs point to Duggan and Paris’ contracts not being renewed, and becoming free agents. Vito’s contract has just reached the time where it can be renewed, although no word yet on if WCW plans to renew his contract. Big Vito is a part of the tag team, the Mamalukes, with Johnny Stamboli. Steiner’s contract is up for renewal starting next month, so expect contract renegotiations to start after Fall Brawl. Billy Kidman and Chavo Guerrero Jr. has their contracts renewed right before Souled Out.

~With some talent looking to be on their way out, new talent is coming in. Former WCW star Curt Hennig inked a deal with WCW the day of Souled Out. Hennig was invited to Souled Out, and after passing a physical, and then having a “try-out” match with Disco Inferno before the show, Hennig was signed to a new deal. No word on when Hennig is expected to debut, or what gimmick he will use, is known yet. However, Hennig is expected to debut within the coming month. 2 former WWF development workers, Brock Lesnar and Shelton Benjamin, were signed to contracts as well. They, along with TJ Wilson, another signee, have reported to the Power Plant to continue to develop their skills. The final star signed was former ECW wrestler Super Crazy. The Mexican wrestler inked a deal on August 21, and is expecting to debut within the coming weeks. A push is planned for him, as WCW is quite excited with his talents. Alex Wright also signed a contract back at the beginning of August, and returned at Souled Out, losing to Cal Anderson. And although he wasn’t signed to a contract, The Wall is back on the WCW roster after finishing rehabilitation for a cocaine addiction. No word though on if The Wall will be put back on TV, or sent to the Power Plant.

~World Championship Wrestling has continued to make peace with its older superstars. Back at the end of July, it wasn’t known how well things were truly going. It can now be said that WCW is on great terms with Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash, and Roddy Piper. All three men were backstage at Souled Out, talking amongst the whole WCW roster, as well as Bischoff, Borden, and Flair about making a return to the company. As of this time, it isn’t expected for any of the stars to return to the company, but you never know if WCW will make a deal with the stars or not. Another star WCW has been trying to get on great terms with is The Rock. The Rock, who signed a verbal agreement with the company back in May, walked on the deal after learning that WCW was dropped by the USA Network. The Rock has since been in Hollywood filming his next movie, The Rundown. However, WCW is still trying to get The Rock to sign with the company.

And into Dyer's repsonse below, the people who did post feedback openly said they didn't know about the time period. Maybe it's just me, but I think that made it self-explanatory. And no worries, this is what I am sticking with. I flaoted around with a couple of ideas here and there, and as you can tell, they were busts; I couldn't get into them. This is what I have been the best at doing, and this is what I have had the most fun writing. So now, I am going to continue WCW 2001. 'Nuff said.

lol welcome back to WCW And hopefully you can stick with one of These.

The reason people dont Post in 1997 One is because you need to prove the thread before people ready sometimes but good Luck.

Default Re: WCW 2001- The Trio Ownership

Yeah maybe its best you don't continue the 1997 thread since it got so little intrest. Good you're back to your best work and I hope you stick to this for a long time.

The video package started off pretty weird with the army and Hitler stuff but it's original. Weird but original then we take a little history lesson of WCW stables. Well I must say: This was a great buildup video for a new wcw stable untill the last line.....

Quote:
Eric Bischoff is shown mouthing, and with his fingers, making the letters, “N-W-O”.
Please don't tell me you're bringing back NWO. This is done to death and its just not exciting anymore. You had a nice heel stable there with jarrett, steiner and awesome and bischoff. Stick with that. Oh well as long as you don't put to many ppl in the stable and just keep it to what you have now then you should be fine even if you call it NWO (which you shouldn't). Just don't make the mistake in overdoing it with putting to many members in it.

We hear that 2 top faces are not gonna be on the show. So that just leaves Sting as the only face to go against the heel stable. Wonder how the Stinger is gonna pull that off? Maybe we see a shock debut of a new WCW star?

Up next is the Billy Kidman working his anger out on Yang. Apparantly it was supposed to be a match to?
We see a nice start and taste of an upcoming Mysterio/Kidman feud.

Another glorified squash match follows. Cal Anderson showing off his wrestling skills and Arn hyping up tonights mainevent.

The interview with Mysterio is next. Lets see what MYsterio has to say. Wow, I never thought Mysterio could play a believable heel but you just proved me wrong. This was a great segment and Mysterio really pulled off the heel turn perfectly with this explanation. I wonder if this is gonna affect his inring work since heels can't do to much flashy moves and Mysterio is all flashy moves. But anyway this Mysterio vs Filthy Animals feud should be great! I expect Mysterio to come out on top and that this is the demise of the Filthy Animals stable after Fall Brawl.

Steiner vs Sting was a typical WCW overbooked mainevent match. Sting was playing a great underdog fighting off the multiple numbers untill Jarrett pulls the emergency button and hits the guitar on Sting giving the DQ win for Sting.

The aftermath was great and at the same bad. The beatdown on Sting, the attempted save by the 3 faces and the beatdown on the 3 faces were all perfectly done. Eric Bischoffs heel promo was great to, another great example on how WCW ERic Bischoff is a heel heat magnet. He gave an awesome heel promo trashing every adversary of his stable. Maybe you should have used "dominating the company" instead of "destroying the company" because it doesn't make much sense that the WCW owner would want to destroy his own company. And then the bad thing happened: the return of the NWO. The return is handled well but the NWO should just be kept dead and buried. All the returns are stale as hell but I hope you pull this one off well. This was a great start to something that I hope will work out. On the other side, you need a good, intruiging(SP?) mainevent storyline to get the ratings for your primetime return.

OVerall: A good return show. The matches were newhere near good (even the mainevent) but Mysterio's heel turn and the happenings at the end of the show were perfectly done. I still don't like the idea of bringing back the NWO but I hope you make it work out.

I am glad that you are back with this thread. WCW was great and I agree with you, not many people (including me) knew about that time period of 1997.

Default Re: WCW 2001- The Trio Ownership

Well, I was liking your 97' thread but ah well. I would actually rather see a TNA thread from you or maybe a WCW set today. But this thread is good nontheless.

Cruiserweight opener, big surprise. Classic WCW right there, and of course Kidman had to win, because Kidman/Mysterio seems like the big CW fued now.

Ugh, would not care to see this match, but you do with what you have. Cal Anderson had to win this match, since he is being pushed with the big fued against the heel faction. To bad, I hate this guy.

Misterio promo was good, considering his mic skills. I like this fued with Kidman, and I hope he makes a statement next week against Konnan. Rey as a heel will be hard to pull off, but nice start.

Steiner/Sting was a good choice of main event. Beatdown by the heel faction was expected, but then Flair, Arn, and unfortunately Cal make the save. Scratch that, they get beat down as well. Great promo by the Bisch and I am glad that the NWO is back. I like the heel faction, but you need somebody that can stop these guys. I think Sting and Booker T. need a third man, not Flair or the Andersons.

Good return show, and I look forward to the two hours next week. Question though, will Nitro be 2 hours from now on?

Default Re: WCW 2001- The Trio Ownership

Yes good sir, two hour shows now. So now, longer matches (at least in the time of the match :P), more promos and angles, and more time to give the mid card talent TV time.

That was the problem with only having a 1 hour time show; just not enough time. But WCW proved itself to NBC, and gets the bump up to Primetime. Thank you bibby, and everyone else, for the feedback.

And of course, the whole Rey Misterio Jr. turn is going to be something I'm going to have to work at. For most people, it is near impossible to buy into him as a heel, so I am going to try and make it work. I guess the problem is, Misterio has always been a face, and he lakcs mic skills for the most part. Plus, it may be hard for him to be taken seriously as a heel with the lucha mask, but then again, if you take off the mask, it becomes even harder for him to be taken seriously. :P

Default Re: WCW 2001- The Trio Ownership

Opening video was really good and it captured NWO great.

Kidman vs. Yung - Glad Kidman got the win and am really looking forward to see where you bring the Rey Misterio vs. Kidman storyline. Other then that soild CW match to kick off the show.

Cal vs. Disco - Pretty might a squash match to put Cal over I think you could do a great job building Cal into a WCW World Champion.

Misterio Promo - AWSOME Promo I like how your mainly putting it as Kidman vs. Misterio but I can see the match at Fall Brawl to be awsome next week I have a feeling that Misterio will lose by DQ?

Stiner vs. Sting - All right main-event I though you might have Sting win by DQ but I dont see why in the aftermath you would have Flair come out who like got killed 3 night before and not Booker T make the save but it was nice to see the heels come out on top to end the show and leave the faces beaten down.

NWO - Glad you brought back a friction but I dont like how you used the NWO again maybe it could have been a differnt name but I understand that you want the whole storyline where the NWO lost WW1 but will win WW2 I really hope you have War Games but I think you should bring in 2 more big names and not use Bisch and Arn... BTW Bisch's promo was great with the Hitler mention and crap seeing as the NWO is starting WW2...

Default Re: WCW 2001- The Trio Ownership

Yeah, I was debating on using the New World Order name or not. But then I thought about it... it is over a year later now since the NWO was used, so maybe, that would have been enough time for the fans to forget about how shitty it became. I'm hoping that the fans can think back more of the nostalgic NWO, and not the shitty "2000" edition. Because trust me, this (new) New World Order means buisness, and they're ready to destroy World Championship Wrestling.

And I'm shocked you liked the Nazi and Hitler comments. I wasn't sure if they'd get over or not. I figured it made sense to use since I featured them in the video. Heh, oh well.

Also, the main event of the next Nitro will be awkward. It is Booker T vs. Sting vs. Ric Flair vs. Jeff Jarrett for the WCW World Heavyweight Title. This is becasue, I believe Jack Flash, picked this match way back when for winning the Souled Out competition. It really seems to make no sense whatsoever, but hey, I will try and make it seem alright on Nitro.

You shouldn't do that. You have the mainevent NWO storyline started off very hot, you should capitalise on the WCW vs NWO angle instead of making this fourway match which doesn't make any sense.

I'm sure that Jack Flash guy will forgive you

I know it doesn't make any sense, but on Nitro, I am going to try and have it make sense, and add some stips. to it so it does make sense. In fact, I just thought of another addition to the match for it to make more sense.

It's hte NWO Crackdasher... they always have a plan
