Re: WCW 2001- The Trio Ownership
Woot woot! Thanks bro, greatly appreciated. And so happy that you got the intended corniness with the Super Cage. I was trying to spoof Ulmec/Ulmac from the amazing Nickolodean TV show Legends of the Hidden Temple.World Championship Wrestling
And now, Nitro.
Little John Coliseum, Clemson, South Carolina
October 31, 2001
Tony Schiavone: Welcome lades and gentleman, to Wednesday Nitro! We are live from Clemson University, and just three days removed from our greatest pay per view to date, Halloween Havoc! I’m ‘The Voice of WCW’ Tony Schiavone, and alongside me, as always, ‘The Professor’ Mike Tenay!
Mike Tenay: Thank you Tony, and-
The Professor gets cut off as the camera quickly cuts to the back.
Paranoia In The nWo Camp & The Super Cage Details Revealed
In the backstage, Eric Bischoff is calmly sitting in the nWo locker room, all by his lonesome. However, after a quick moment, the door bursts open, and Jeff Jarrett barges in, WCW World Heavyweight Title Belt on his shoulder, and looking angry, but even more, paranoid.
Jeff Jarrett: Eric! Eric, I’ve been looking for you all day. Have you been avoiding me!? I’ve run into the rest of the boys time after time, but you’ve been hiding from me!
Bischoff sits up from the couch, and looks confused and alarmed.
Eric Bischoff: Jeff, Jeff, Jeff… what are you talking about?
Jeff looks at Eric incredulously.
Jeff Jarrett: Only the most demonic structure known to professional wrestling, Eric! The Super Cage! It’s coming back at Mayhem, and that would mean it’s your doing it’s coming back! And rumor has it, that I’m going to be the Super Cage with three other guys, for my WCW World Heavyweight Title on the line! And you’ve been hiding from me, refusing to tell me that I have to wrestle in the Super Cage at Mayhem, November the 18th! And not only that, EVERYBODY is out to get me, Eric! ‘Big Poppa Pump’ Scott Steiner has wanted my blood ever since you threw him out of the New World Order! Booker T’s calling himself the number one contender after pinning Hogan on Sunday, and hell, Hulk isn’t even here tonight! Sting wants a Title shot! Old man Flair wants another crack, and Kevin Nash and Scott Hall have been bragging all day about kicking my ass at Halloween Havoc!
Jarrett pulls at his hair and takes a deep breath.
Jeff Jarrett: I’m losing my mind, Bischoff! I’m nervous, I’m anxious, and I’m worried. Everyone’s closing in on me, but the problem is, all I want right now is to kick the crap out of The Outsiders. They made a fool out of me on Sunday, and I want a match with the both of them! And to make matters worse, you’re hiding information from me!
Jeff flops down onto the black leather couch, looking completely paranoid. Bischoff is astonished.
Eric Bischoff: Jeff, you need to calm down, right now! Take a deep breath, and realize what you have right here. You’re the WCW World Heavyweight Champion, and the leader of the New World Order; the most dominant faction in the history of professional wrestling! You got the back-up from Mike Awesome, Curt Hennig, and KroniK, plus we’ve got the biggest legend in the history of wrestling, The Icon, Hulk Hogan! And think, Jeff! I am the WCW President! I mean, I may not be a contracted member of WCW anymore thanks to the nWo, but I still run things! And do you honestly think that I would put you, US, in danger like that!? No! Yes, the Super Cage is coming back to World Championship Wrestling at Mayhem, and yes the Super Cage is the most lethal and hellacious structure known to wrestling, but Jeff this is for you!
Bischoff grins at Jeff, while The Chosen One still looks confused.
Jeff Jarrett: What? How is the Super Cage for me, Eric?
Eric Bischoff: Jeff, the Super Cage, is a number one contenders match! I may be the WCW President, but there is still a board of directors, and they can still put pressure on my ass to uphold the rules and regulations of this God forsaken company. Jeff, you’re the WCW World Heavyweight Champion, and that Title has to be defended at Starrcade. If it was up to me, that wouldn’t be enforced, but the board is making it so! But me, I’m on top of the game, Champ. Four men will enter the Super Cage at Mayhem, and there will be a briefcase suspended 45 feet in the air, and whoever grabs that briefcase, will get to sign a contract that states they will wrestle for the WCW World Heavyweight Title at Starrcade! So you see, I am going to make your opponent for Starrcade go through hell, just to get the opportunity of a lifetime to wrestle you on pay per view, let alone for the WCW World Heavyweight Title!
Bischoff looks at Jeff, and grins, hoping that the matter is now settled. Jeff’s head is down, and in thought. After pausing for a moment, Jeff speaks, his head still looking down at the floor.
Jeff Jarrett: Who are the four guys in the match?
Eric Bischoff: Well… I don’t know who all of the competitors are myself, the board is locking down on me. However, I will gladly tell you what I do know. I don’t know why they have chosen this piece of crap, but Booker T is in the Super Cage. And the other guy that the board has already declared, is the “savior” of WCW, the biggest waste of space I’ve ever met, Sting. Yeah, they put him in the Super Cage.
The last comment was said after Jeff’s head shot up after hearing The Stinger was in the match too. Jeff’s face just looks even more worried after finding out that two men who have been after Jeff’s blood for months, Booker T and Sting, are now fighting for the chance to face Jeff Jarrett at Starrcade, next December.
Jeff Jarrett: …And the other two?
Eric Bischoff: Well, I think this one may be one you want to hear. The board, the pieces of crap that they are, has already given Kevin Nash or Scott Hall the chance to be in the Super Cage. Either Outsider can be in the match, those two can decide who is the match apparently.
Jeff Jarrett: I want them both tonight!
Wow, I am kind of digging this new Jarrett. He’s actually not being a pussy tonight, he is open to wrestling!
Eric Bischoff: Jeff… that’s just not going to happen. Those two Outsiders are already in a match against the good ole boys’ favorite two, Ric Flair and Sting. And even if they weren’t, I don’t know if you’re ready for another match, Jeff. You had a big night on Sunday, and you need to rest tonight.
Jeff Jarrett: …Fine. I’ll rest tonight, but next week, I don’t care if it’s Kevin Nash or Scott Hall! I am wrestling one of The Outsiders next week on Nitro! NO ONE, and I mean no one, makes a fool out of Jeff Jarrett, and goes unscathed! Bischoff, I mean it; next week, a slap nut is going to get his ass kicked!
Bischoff grins as Jeff starts to regain his usual swagger. He pats him on the shoulder, only for Jeff’s head to shoot back up at Eric. He looks incredibly worried again.
Jeff Jarrett: …You never said the fourth man, Eric. Who’s the fourth man in the Super Cage? Who else gets the chance to wrestling me for my Title!? Don’t you tell me it is Scott Steiner! It better not be Scott Steiner! Or Ric Flair! I’ve had it up to here (his hand now parallel with his eyes) with Scott Steiner, and that stupid slap nut, Ric Flair!
Jarrett’s face is that of anger, but his eyes tell a much different story, paranoia. Jeff Jarrett is afraid of Ric Flair, and especially Scott Steiner.
Eric Bischoff: Champ, I don’t know who the fourth man is.
Jeff Jarrett immediately starts to look paranoid, and of course, angry. Eric quickly consoles him.
Eric Bischoff: However! However… don’t worry, Jeff. You are The Chosen One, and as your manager, your President, your leader, and your friend, I am not going to let the steroid-injecting Scott Steiner, or “Father Time” himself, Ric Flair, get into that Super Cage. Now Jeff, come on… let’s get you out of this locker room, and get some coffee. Show off that Title belt of yours to the ladies… show ‘em just who the Champ is.
Jarrett nods, and while looking a bit better, although still nowhere near happy, he leaves the room. Once out of the room, Bischoff’s perky expression drops, and Eric runs his hands over his face, looking just as stressed out as Jeff was.
Eric Bischoff: Someone needs to get that man a Prozac…
Bischoff flops down onto the leather couch, and closes his eyes, stressed, as the show heads to a…
When the show returns, we’re back at the commentary booth.
Tony Schiavone: Welcome back to Wednesday Nitro, folks, and if you ask me, it looks like Jeff Jarrett and Eric Bischoff are two very, very stressed out men!
Mike Tenay: Well I think both men have a right to, Tony. Jeff is right; everybody is out to get the WCW World Heavyweight Championship! It’s the most prestigious Championship in the world today, and everybody wants the belt! Plus, everyone who isn’t a New World Order member, wants the blood of Jeff Jarrett! No one likes the New World Order; this is World Championship Wrestling folks! The wrestlers are here to wrestle in WCW, not be overran by a tyrant, Eric Bischoff, and his cronies, the New World Order!
Tony Schiavone: And speaking of the tyrant, the no good scheming bastard, he has the reasons to be stressed too, although I must say, it’s a pity he hasn’t had a nervous break down! I’d love to see that weasel have to go into therapy for depression, and leave WCW for quite a while! But anyways, if you saw the excellent pay per view that was Halloween Havoc, you would have saw that nothing when the way for the New World Order! Curt Hennig got dropped on his head and was pinned in the North American Title match allowing Lance Storm to retain his Title! Scott Steiner put Mike Awesome through a table in their tables match, and KroniK were unsuccessful in winning back the WCW Tag Titles! Plus, in what I would call his biggest victory ever, Booker T scored the huge pin fall victory over ‘Hollywood’ Hulk Hogan!
Mike Tenay: And let it be repeated, Hulk Hogan is not here tonight either! He went through hell on Sunday with Booker T, and he is home resting after going through that war!
Tony Schiavone: And then of course, in the WCW World Heavyweight Title match, Jeff Jarrett was able to escape with his Title still intact, but my oh my, did Jeff and Bischoff ever get made fools out of!
Mike Tenay: Oh yes they did, Tony! ‘The Enforcer’ Double A, Arn Anderson, did quite a number on Eric Bischoff during that match, and The Outsiders, Kevin Nash and Scott Hall, fresh off their return to WCW, assaulted both Ric Flair and Jeff Jarrett!
In the background, a knock off of the old Hart Foundation theme hits, bringing out Teddy Hart and Jack Evans to light boos.
Tony Schiavone: And we know Jeff Jarrett is fuming about that! The Outsiders humiliated Jeff, but the one who should really be pissed is Ric Flair! Ric Flair was Jack Knife Power Bombed by Kevin Nash, and also had Jeff Jarrett’s guitar broken over his head by The Outsiders!
Mike Tenay: However tonight, ‘The Nature Boy’ Ric Flair will get his chance for redemption, and plus, we will see somewhat of a preview of the Super Cage! Ric Flair and Sting will team up to take on The Outsiders, and two of those men, Sting and either Hall or Nash, will be in the Super Cage, November 18, at Mayhem, for the right to face off with Jeff Jarrett for the WCW World Heavyweight Title at the biggest pay per view of the year, Starrcade! But now, we have gabbed long enough, Tony, let’s get the hot wrestling action under way with Jack Evans of the Flying Harts taking on the current WCW Cruiserweight Champion, ‘Sugar’ Shane Helms!
‘Sugar’ hits next, The Flying Harts now in the ring, bringing out ‘Sugar’ Shane Helms and the Sugar Babies, who have resurfaced in WCW once again. Helms gets a rather tweenerish sort of reaction from the crowd, the cheers are there from the fans in Clemson, but quite a few boos can be heard as well. Helms brushes it off as he goes through his usual entrance with the Sugar Babies before entering the ring. Once in the ring, Helms hands his Title belt over to referee Mark Johnson, who was not at the Halloween Havoc PPV, due to his wife being in labor, according to Tony. Congratulations is given to Mark, and they welcome him back. And now, let’s get started!
Jack Evans (w/Teddy Hart) vs. Shane Helms (w/Sugar Babies)
Non-Title Singles Match
The crowd wasn’t really into this match from the get-go, as Jack Evans is clearly the less over-man of the two Flying Harts, and the crowd is still responding to the slow character turn of Shane Helms. The crowd heckled Helms quite a bit in the early going, disrupting Helms’ normal rhythm, allowing Evans to get on the advantage early after a drop kick (with Evans back flipping after making contact with Helms’ chest), multiple arm drags, as well as a wicked snap hurricanrana. The snap ‘rana earned Evans a two count, but that was all he got. The crowd’s focused started to dwindle again as Evans slowed down the pace a bit, working over Helms on the ground for the better part of the next two or three minutes. Finally catching the hint that the crowd didn’t want to see a spot monkey try and mat wrestle, Jack picked up the pace, hitting a tilt-a-whirl head scissors, as well as a springboard leg lariat from the second rope. Evans really showed his aerial abilities moments later, attempting a 630 Senton. However, the impressive, multiple flipping, maneuver failed, as Helms rolled out of the way, and Evans was left to crash onto the canvas, back first. As Helms recovered and started a flurry of offense, the college kids of Clemson University flip-flopped like the next Democratic Presidential candidate, cheering quite loudly for Helms as he scored with several stiff kicks, and than a big drop kick. A spinning hurricanrana followed, and then a shining wizard. As Shane Helms called for the most innovative finisher in WCW today, the Vertebreaker, Teddy Hart grabbed the WCW Cruiserweight Title Belt from the timekeeper’s table, entered the ring, and blasted Shane Helms in the back of the head with it! The crowd immediately started to boo, as Mark Johnson called the match off.
Result: Shane Helms def. Jack Evans by DQ at 6:38
As the bell rings, The Flying Harts start to lay the boots to the fallen Shane Helms, despite protests from Mark Johnson. He eventually gets shoved down by Teddy Hart, resulting in more boos. Shoving down a referee always makes for a great heel. After about ten seconds of the stomping, Evans pulls Helms up to his feet, while Teddy Hart exits onto the apron. Evans locks onto Helms from behind, and starts to lift him up into the air, just as Teddy Harts jumps off the apron and onto the third rope. Hart springboards off the third rope in a blink of the eye, crushing Helms with a flying lariat as Evans folds Helms up like the proverbial accordion, and they connect with the Hart Attack 2.0! By this point, the crowd is booing, but here comes the face to save the day, ‘The Insane Luchadore’ Super Crazy! As the rift of ‘Roadhouse Blues’ plays, Super Crazy sprints down the entrance ramp, a steel chair in hand. As soon as he enters the ring, The Flying Harts high-tail it out of the ring and up to the entrance ramp. Super Crazy, who was told at Halloween Havoc to stay away from Shane Helms by the Cruiserweight Champion, checks on Sugar Shane, and eventually helps him up to his feet. Once on his feet, Helms looks disgusted at Super Crazy, and shoves him away before exiting the ring. Helms grabs his fallen Cruiserweight Title Belt, and storms up the entrance ramp, looking angry while holding his neck in pain.
Tony Schiavone: What has gotten into Shane Helms, Professor!?
Mike Tenay: Well Tony, I’m not sure. Super Crazy has done nothing but been a friend and partner to Shane Helms to help him fend off the Flying Harts, but that doesn’t seem to be good enough for Shane Helms! He wants Super Crazy gone and out of his life, but apparently our foreign friend, who from what we know, cannot understand English, doesn’t understand Helms’ demand!
Tony Schiavone: Well it looks like we’re going to have to monitor Shane Helms’ behavior closely over these next few weeks, Mike. Maybe we’ll start to understand why he’s acting the way he is!
Mike Tenay: Uh huh, maybe Tony. Anyways, let us send you backstage now where ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund is standing by with the Filthy Animals, Billy Kidman and Konnan!
Cut to the back!
After A Stellar Match, The Paint Dries
Backstage at the interview area, Mean Gene is in his best penguin suit, while Konnan and Kidman (plus Tygress), are in their usual attires. Kidman is sporting black jean shorts and a wife beater; Konnan has sweat pants that heavily expose his boxers, a Filthy Animals tee shirt, a black top hat and shades, plus a red and grey checked bandana around his neck, instead of his mouth. Tygress… she’s a ho who has no value in this federation. Oh, my bad. Thought I was supposed to say who she was, not what she was wearing.
Gene Okerlund: Hello everybody, I hope you’re enjoying this broadcast of Wednesday Nitro! I’m ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund, and as you can tell, the men I am standing here with, are the Filthy Animals, and their lovely valet, Tygress! Let me start with you Billy. How are you feeling right now after getting cheated out of another chance at beating Rey Misterio Jr.!?
Billy Kidman: Well Gene, I’m exactly what you think I am. I am angry, and generally pissed off! Rey, you and me, we tore the house down in Greensville, on Sunday, at Halloween Havoc. We put on one hell of a match, and gave the fans something they all will remember. And normally, that would be enough for me, knowing I entertained the fans. But no, not this time! Not against you! When I’m against you, I want, no, I DESERVE, the victory. Rey, face it. On Sunday, I was the better man, again! I out-wrestled you, and I simply, better. And I was this (Billy leaves a small amount of space between his right thumb and index finger) close to beating you, but just like at Fall Brawl, you cheated me out of the win, this time, getting yourself disqualified. Rey, you can’t keep this up forever! Sooner or later, you and me, we are going to wrestle one-on-one, and you’re not going to be able to run, you’re not going to be able to hide, and you’re not going to be able to get yourself disqualified! It will be just you and me, one fall to a finish. And Rey, I promise you, when it is all said and done, I will be the one with my hand raised in victory!
Kidman, his eyes a raging fire, stares into the camera, looking fired up. Okerlund turns his attention to Konnan as Kidman snaps out of his trance.
Gene Okerlund: K-Dawg, Konnan… how are ya’ doing tonight!?
Konnan: Gene-O, I’m doin’ good essa! But first, yo, yo, yo, lemme speak on ‘dis! ORALE! ARRRIBA LA RAZZZA! Gene-O, at Halloween Havoc, my main brotha’, Billy Kidman, he got upright screwed by da’ traita’ Rey Misterio Junia’! But no one needs ta’ fear anymore, ‘cuz as a’ now, I’m gonna make sure ‘dat K-Man here ain’t screwed no more! Me n’ Kidman, we da’ Filthy Animals, and ta’night, we gonna prove it when we beat some punk’s ass! So K-Man, let’s go do ‘dis! ARRRIBA, ARRRIBA!
The crowd can be heard cheering as the Filthy Animals walk off from the interview area, and just before the show heads to break, we hear this from Mike Tenay…
Mike Tenay: The Filthy Animals are in tag-team action against The Mamalukes, next, right after this quick commercial break!
As Nitro returns, The Mamalukes, Big Vito and Johnny The Bull, are entering the ring, tension clearly present between the two men. The tag team haven been on a losing streak this past month, and hadn’t accomplished anything, or done anything to get TV time until their losing streak started. Last week we thought things snapped between the two; Big Vito and Johnny The Bull broke out into a scuffle, but apparently they’re trying to team up one more time. The crowd starts to get onto their feet in cheers as ‘Filthy’ plays, bringing out the always fan favorites, The Filthy Animals, Billy Kidman, Konnan, and Tygress! The trio makes their way down the ring, looking ready to go, slapping hands with the crowd while entering down the ramp. Kidman and Konnan enter the ring, pose and taunt in the ring quickly, and then get ready for their match to get underway.
Filthy Animals (w/Tygress) vs. Mamalukes
Tag Team Match
The Mamalukes have been on their losing streak, and their break-up has slowly started to take place. Tonight, this was the ice breaker. Billy Kidman and Konnan mowed through The Mamalukes from the get-go. Konnan beat down on Big Vito with heavy right hands and assorted slams and suplexes in the opening two minutes, while Kidman connected with a spinning hurricanrana, a springboard back elbow from the second rope, and a tilt-a-whirl head scissors. The crowd was read hot for the Animals, as always, and only got hotter when both The Mamalukes got tossed to the outside by Konnan, followed up by Kidman knocking both men down after a springboard shooting star press from the third rope. From there, Johnny The Bull sulked over to his corner, looking angry at Vito, who staggered into the ring. Konnan briefly worked over Vito in the ring, ending his run with a K-Factor, his version of the X-Factor. The tag was made to Kidman, who hit a couple of dropkicks and more aerial maneuvers before hitting the Animal Cruelty, his version of the Sky High. Tag back to Konnan, and he connected with the 187. The pin was made, and Johnny The Bull just dropped off the apron, looking angry and embarrassed with Vito, walking over to the timekeeper’s table, allowing Konnan to score the quick and easy three.
Result: The Filthy Animals def. The Mamalukes at 5:10
After the match is over, The Filthy Animals leave the ring, sensing some bad blood about go boil over between The Mamalukes, and celebrated up the entrance ramp.
I Am No Longer What I Am, But I Am What I Once Was, Again
Like the title?
Johnny The Bull rolls back into the ring as The Filthy Animals continue their celebration. Johnny has a steel chair in his hands, and waits for Big Vito to get to his feet. Ito does just a few moments later, and when he does, he gets drilled by the steel chair, right into the cranium! Big Vito drops like a ton of bricks, and Johnny Te Bull smirks sadistically at his fallen partner. His smirk then turns into anger, and he starts to stab the chair into Vito’s mid-section repeatedly, showing no remorse as he assaults Vito’s ribs. Finally Johnny The Bull lays one more chair shot to Vito’s face, and tosses the chair on The Mamaluke. As the crowd is slightly booing The Bull (for the first time in months), he walks over to the edge of the ring, and grabs a microphone from a stagehand. And to the surprise of many, when he speaks, it is not in the fake Italian accent he has always spoken in, but that of a regular tone.
Johnny The Bull: Big Vito… I am sick of being held down by you! I am sick and tired of being stuck in a tag team that is going nowhere! I’m a star of the future, and you, you’re a greasy Italian who is a ‘never was’. You’re not even good enough to be a ‘has been’ Vito; you’re the slime ball who held down Johnny Stamboli, when you weren’t even good enough to carry my jock!
Stamboli pauses as he spits on Vito. However, that’s not the scary part of this; Vito’s rolled onto his side, and is coughing up blood quietly. He’s bleeding internally. Oh wow, some more boos from Johnny.
Johnny Stamboli: For months, hell, the past few years, I have stuck with you, Vito, and been dragged down. You forced me to act like some bad ass Italian, and give me some “menacing” nickname of The Bull. Screw that! I am no Mamaluke, Vito, I am Johnny Stamboli, the future of this business, and a natural born thriller! And that is why, Vito, I am challenging your sorry ass to a match at Mayhem, November 18! If, no, when, I beat you, and show the world just how pathetic you are, and how great I am, you’re Italian ass is out on the street, while Johnny Stamboli is hailed as this sport’s next icon!
Stamboli lays a few stomps to Vito, who is still bleeding internally.
Johnny Stamboli: See you at Mayhem… if you can make, “partner”.
Stamboli snickers as The Mamalukes theme hits. The crowd boos Stamboli a bit as he leaves the ring, while Johnny looks disgusted with the theme music playing. He trots to the back anyways as EMT’s rush down the ramp to attend to Vito.
Tony Schiavone: Professor, I have never been a fan of Big Vito, or The Mamalukes in general, but I sure do hope that Big Vito is okay.
Mike Tenay: Well me too, Tony. The Mamalukes have been on a bad losing skid, and as you all just witnessed, Johnny ‘The Bull’ Stamboli has had enough, and he just savagely attacked Vito. Those steel chairs are unforgiving; Big Vito definitely is going to have some internal injuries I expect.
Tony Schiavone: Well Professor, we can’t know for sure at this time, but boys and girls at home, we promise to give you an update on Big Vito when we find out his status later on.
Tony comes to a pause, and the cameras immediately cut to the backstage.
Outsiders In Da House
And we’re backstage, in the locker room of The Outsiders, Kevin Nash and Scott Hall. Both men are already dressed to wrestle, as they do have a tag team match in the main event tonight. Both men are chilling out, sitting on a (hideous) black and red couch. That’s trying to get over the Wolfpack colors a little too much.
Scott Hall: Heh, hey yo, Kev… was Sunday night a good ole’ time or wha’?
Nash and Hall both snicker.
Kevin Nash: Scotty man, once again we showed the world just how great and unpredictable The Outsiders are. We fooled Eric Bischoff. We beat the crap out of Sting, Ric Flair, and Jeff Jarrett. I mean, God, we accomplished what everyone’s been trying to do for months. We dominated WCW at Halloween Havoc. The nWo and WCW are having their little war, but man, as soon as The Outsiders show up, it’s the Wolfpack who are running the show.
Scott Hall: Heh, oh yeah, Kev. An’ now ta’night, da’ Outsiders, are gonna beat down da’ old farts… Flair an’ Sting… an’ nex’ week, we gonna do it ta’… Jeff Jarrett.
Kevin Nash: Yeah… about that, Scotty. Which one of us do you think should win the strap next week? I mean, we’re both deserving Champions. Talented, charismatic, good looking… we got it all. I mean, personally, I’d like to win the strap next week…
Scott Hall: …An’ as you know, Big Kev, I neva’ won da’ “big one”… da’ Dubya-See-Dubya World Heavyweight Championship… so I think ‘dat I should wrestle nex’ week… for da’ title.
Kevin Nash: …So we both want the shot. I guess there’s only one way to settle this… sorry Scott.
Kevin Nash stands up from his seat, towering over the sitting Hall. Hall stands up too.
Scott Hall: Naw so fast, Kev… are we doin’ first fall, or two outta three?
Kevin Nash: One fall to a finish, Scotty. Just you and me, one-on-one.
With it seeming like they’re about to come to blows, Nash and Hall throw out their hands, and start moving them up and down three times. And then, Hall throws out the dreaded rock, but Nash counters with paper! Paper covers Rock! Oh, what a match! In an intense battle of Rock, Paper, Scissors, Kevin Nash is victorious! Hall and Nash both grin, especially Kev, who now is facing Jeff next week.
Kevin Nash: Well Scotty, paper covers rock. I win. So next week, Jeff Jarrett, it looks like Big Sexy is going to be defeating you for the World Heavyweight Title. Now Scotty, lets sit back and relax until our match. And then afterwards… you know what’s going on, right?
Nash grins, as does Hall, looking absolutely delighted.
Scott Hall: Oh yea’… we partay!
Nash and Hall bangs fists, and sit back on the couch, looking chilled.
Mike Tenay: Well Tony, The Outsiders are looking calm and collected tonight! But they have every reason too! They made a big impact at Halloween Havoc on Sunday, and now tonight, they’re in the main event with Flair and Sting! And not to mention, Nash faces Jarrett for the World Title next week on Nitro, and one of them is still in the Super Cage match at Mayhem!
Tony Schiavone: It’s good to be an Outsider sometime, Professor! Anyways, we have to take another commercial break, but stay tuned, because up next, Lance Storm is in action!
When Nitro returns, Jamie Noble, clad in jean shorts and wrestling boots, is standing in the ring, ready for action. A few moments later, WCW’ rift of Grinspoon’s ‘Snap Your Fingers, Snap Your Neck’ hits, bringing out the WCW North American Champion, Lance Storm! Lance walks out onto the stage, to another mixture of cheers and jeers from Clemson. Lance doesn’t seem to notice, his eyes cold and focused. Storm marches down the entrance ramp, sporting his long red tights with a white maple leaf on the sides and rear. Lance enters the ring, hands his North American Title Belt over to referee Scott Dickenson, and gets ready to wrestle.
Jamie Noble vs. Lance Storm
Non-Title Singles Match
As Lance Storm continues to become more and more popular in the eyes of the fans, he got his work horse on, putting on a very good seven plus minute match with Noble. Storm has been requesting to have a match with Jamie TV; thinks they’d work well together, and wants to help Noble get over. That Storm did as the two men went hold-for-hold in the opening minutes of the match, each man locking in unique and painful looking holds, when on their feet and when on the canvas. Noble put up a good fight and showed just how talented he can be, but to no one’s surprise, Storm is the one who came up with the advantage, scoring several quick roll-ups that flustered Noble, causing him to walk right into a northern lights suplex. From there, Storm dominated most of the match, focusing heavily on Noble’s head and neck with leg scissors and various holds and locks, stiff forearm and elbow strikes, hard kicks, and a spree of suplexes that dropped Noble on his head. Lance scored a near fall after a belly-to-back suplex from the second turnbuckle, as well as Super Kick, but Noble shows great resiliency by kicking out of both maneuvers. Noble even got some offense of his own, back flipping out of a German suplex, and almost scoring the victory with a great-looking dragon suplex. However, in the end, Storm fought back, scored with a swinging neck breaker and a few blows to Noble’s neck, and finished him off with a beautiful sit-out brain buster, the same move that he used to defeat Curt Hennig at Halloween Havoc.
Result: Lance Storm def. Jamie Noble at 7.36
After the match, Storm is handed his North American Title Belt, and the Canadian Superstar walks to the back. The cameras follow him as Tenay and Schiavone talk briefly.
Mike Tenay: Tony, Lance Storm is a phenomenal wrestler, and arguably the most underrated talent in WCW! He’s showing just how talented he is day in and day out, and I think it is only a matter of time until he gets truly noticed!
Tony Schiavone: Oh I agree with you one hundred percent, Professor. Lance Storm has slo… what is this!?
The New Proposition Order
The cameras have still been following Lance Storm, but both come to a sudden halt as Lance Storm walks through the curtain to the backstage area. There, only a few feet away from Lance, stand the New World Order; Eric Bischoff, Mike Awesome, Curt Hennig, and KroniK. They all are leaning back against the wall, looking both relaxed and cocky. As Lance wonders what they want with him, Eric steps up to Lance, and starts the conversation.
Eric Bischoff: Lance Storm… just the man we all wanted to see.
Lance looks at the four smirking nWo members, and immediately takes a step back, thinking an attack is about to be launched. Eric however, laughs it off.
Eric Bischoff: No, Lance, we’re not here to beat you down… much of the opposite really. We, the New World Order, have taken a liking of you, Lance. We see just how talented you are, and well, we all have a little something to say to you.
Lance looks on, interested, as Curt Hennig takes a step up.
Curt Hennig: Lance, back on Sunday, you did something I never thought you’d be able to do. You pinned my shoulders to the mat, and you out-wrestled me. Not many people can out-wrestle Curt Hennig.
Mike Awesome: You and me go way back, Lance, all the way to a little thing called ECW. We’ve been there together, and we’ve been Team Canada mates together. And from the very beginning, you’ve impressed me, Lance; you are the real deal.
Brian Adams: And if you ask me and Bryan, you’re the best North American Champion we’ve ever seen.
Eric Bischoff: You see, Lance, you have impressed the New World Order. And when I say the nWo, I don’t just mean these four right here. ‘Hollywood’ Hulk Hogan, he’s impressed with Lance Storm. The WCW World Heavyweight Champion, ‘The Chosen One’ Jeff Jarrett, he is impressed, with you Lance. And most importantly, I, am impressed with you Lance. And Lance, because we’re so impressed with you, we are here, right now. The war is occurring, and it is time to start going in for the kill. We’re not going to wait around for ever until we destroy WCW, the end is near, and it’s time for allegiances to be shown. Lance, you are not an enemy of the nWo, and we don’t want you to be. But it is time for you to show where your allegiances lie. Are you with us, or are you against us? There’s no more middle ground; you’re either nWo, or you’re WCW.
Bischoff stares at Storm, who is in deep thought. Bischoff simply continues, trying to persuade him even more.
Eric Bischoff: WCW is a dying breed, Lance. You and I both know it. Sting is getting old; he’s losing his touch. Booker T, sooner or later these fluke victories of his are going to come to an end, and he’ll be left with nothing. Ric Flair… he’s an old, ungrateful, piece of *shit*! It’s only a matter of time until his sorry ass dies and rots, just like all of WCW. So now, you have to decide if you want to rot with WCW, or if you want to achieve eternal glory… with the New World Order.
Bischoff stares down Storm again, letting his words sink into Lance’s mind. Lance is clearly in deep thought, but his thoughts are broken as Mike Awesome, his former stable mate, tosses Storm a nWo t-shirt. Lance catches it, and looks at it as Awesome tries to persuade Lance now.
Mike Awesome: Lance, take the shirt man. Accept something new into your life. You’ve been walking around here for months, going nowhere fast, because you’ve been too stubborn to get past your ‘Go Canada’ crap. Yeah, you’re from Canada, you love your roots, great, but Lance, you’ve gotta grow up, become a man, and make something out of yourself! Me, I’ve dropped that whole Team Canada crap, and look where it has gotten me. I’m a member of the greatest faction in the history of wrestling, the New World Order. I’m going somewhere with my career; I’m the future of this business because of the nWo, and Eric Bischoff. You can be too, Lance, if you just move away from the low-rate crap you’re stuck in now. Join us, Lance, and I promise you, friend, that you’ll finally be the star we’ve both known you should be.
Lance’s eyes look deep into the shirt, and then at his tights, which have the Canadian maple leaf on it. This is clearly a hard choice for Lance, as he remains silent, his face selling complete confusion as to what he should do. However, at the same time, his eyes almost seem angry.
Eric Bischoff: Lance, we’re not going to press you into a decision. We know how talented you are, but how you’re going nowhere fast. Think about it; tell us next week. We’ll be awaiting your answer, Lance… do what is healthy for yourself… and your career in WCW.
Bischoff’s last words are that of a threat, but he leaves Lance on that note, as he and the rest of the nWo walk off-screen. As the show fades to a break, one more shot is shown of Lance, staring at the nWo shirt in thought.
When Nitro returns, we are backstage, with ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund!
The Good Ole’ Boys
In the backstage interview area, the camera zooms out, revealing ‘The Nature Boy’ Ric Flair on one side of Okerlund, and Sting on the other. Both are dressed for competition; their match is in a few minutes.
Gene Okerlund: Welcome back to Nitro, and let me tell you, it is my utmost privilege to be standing by with these two men next to me, ‘The Nature Boy’ Ric Flair, and Sting! Gentleman, and just a few short moments, you will be facing The Outsiders, Kevin Nash and Scott Hall, in a tag team match. For the both of you, this is a chance at revenge! Sunday at Halloween Havoc, Sting, The Outsiders attacked you during and after your match, and Flair, I know I don’t need to remind you of how The Outsiders cost you the WCW World Heavyweight Title.
Ric Flair: Gene-O, and Clemson University… WOOO! MEAN GENE, no, you don’t have to remind me about Halloween Havoc because let me tell you, everyday is a constant reminder of Halloween Havoc! I showed up, in Flair Country, beat the crap out of Jeff Jarrett, but left empty-handed because of those punks, Nash and Hall. Now Mean Gene, I realized something when I woke up Monday morning, bits of dried blood still on my scalp; there’s no way in hell the nWo are going to let this old man get another crack at Jeff Jarrett for the Title. I’ve accepted it, Gene, but I’m not going to let it go by unscathed. And that means I’m coming after you, Eric Bischoff! You, and, WOOO, HULK HOGAN!
Flair pauses as he starts to get riled up.
Ric Flair: Hollywood Hogan, don’t you think for one minute that I have forgotten about you! Hulk, back in 1993, I brought you into this company! You betrayed me then when you joined the New World Order, and I forgave you. I brought you back a second time, just a few months ago. And again, you turned on me, and this company, and joined the nWo. Well Hulk, I’m not gonna forgive and forget this time! You and me, we’re going to settle our differences in the ring at some point, I promise you that! And Hulk, don’t worry, I’ll let you have some back-up because you’re not the only one I want in our little match. ERIC BISCHOFF, you slimy, cheating, no good son of a *bitch*! I hate you, and you are NOTHING, but VILE! You wanna call me a “piece of *shit*”, huh jackass!? Well you slime ball, if Naitch is that, I don’t even wanna know what your sorry ass is! But Eric, I’ll let you and Hulk know one thing. When I’m out in the ring with The Stinger, kicking The Outsiders’ asses, I’m going to be imagining it is you two. WOOO!
Flair and Sting exchange a double high, high five, as Gene turns his focus over to Sting.
Gene Okerlund: Thank you, Ric, and I hope you have fun with that imagination. I know I would! But now, let me turn to you Sting! Stinger, you’ve been on a wild ride since you made your return to WCW back in August, and now, we both know it, you’re getting your chance to be WCW World Heavyweight Champion again! On November 18, you will enter The Super Cage with Booker T, and two other men, and compete for the chance to wrestle in the main event of Starrcade, for the WCW World Heavyweight Championship! What are your thoughts on that, Stinger?
Sting: GENE-O! It’s great to know that The Stinger is getting another crack at winning the World Heavyweight Title, because everybody knows, that The Stinger is worthy to be Champion, and that The Stinger WILL BE, the Champion! I thank the board of directors for giving me the chance to be in the Super Cage; I’ve waited for my time, and now, it is the Stinger’s time! At Mayhem, I will win the Super Cage match, and at Starrcade, I will defeat Jeff Jarrett for the WCW World Heavyweight Championship! And now, if you excuse us, Gene-O… IT’S SHOWTIME FOLKS!
Flair and Sting both grab the mic, and shout into it.
The two men leave the interview area as the cameras cuts back to the commentary booth quickly before the main event gets underway.
Tony Schiavone: Professor, Ric Flair and Sting are two men ready for action!
Mike Tenay: Definitely! I know both men are ready for their match with The Outsiders, but they also are looking ahead to the future. Ric Flair, he got screwed out of the World Heavyweight Title three nights ago at Halloween Havoc, but he’s not going to sulk about it. Not a legend like Ric Flair! He’s going to take action, and take it out on two men he has a score to settle with, Eric Bischoff and Hulk Hogan! Bischoff tried to embarrass and humiliate Flair for years, and Hogan turned his back on The Nature Boy after Flair brought Hogan back to WCW. It’s time for Naitch to get some pay back! And he’s going to get him some tonight, in Flair Country!
Tony Schiavone: And Sting is going to be right beside him, helping him take on The Outsiders! And The Stinger, he’ll be facing one of these men at Mayhem in the Super Cage! It’s going to be one of the best main events I can remember on Nitro, and it’s going to start, right now!
Now that Tony has gotten his over-hype done for the main event, a loud ‘HOOOOOWWWLLL’ hits the sound system, bringing out The Outsiders, ‘Big Sexy’ Kevin Nash and ‘The Bad Guy’ Scott Hall, to a mixture of pops and boos. Both are decked out in Wolfpack t-shirts, while Hall has a black and red banana in his hair to match his black trunks that say ‘Outsiders’ on the rear, in red. Nash has his usual black pants on, with the singlet going underneath it. The two strut down the entrance ramp, playing with the crowd as they do so. The Outsiders get into the ring, and the fans start to scream as ‘Seek And Destroy’ by Metallica hits, bringing out ‘The Man Called’ Sting. Sting is in his usual black pants and singlet, much like Nash, except less baggy of pants, and the black trench coat. Sting twirls his black baseball bat as he marches down the entrance ramp, pointing it at The Outsiders. Sting enters the ring as ‘Sprach Zarathursta’ hits, bringing the crowd to their feet, screaming and cheering, for ‘The Nature Boy’ Ric Flair (sans Arn Anderson). Flair has a blue and white gown on, with light blue trunks. Ric stands on the entrance stage for a few moments, twirling on the stage, soaking in the loud cheers. Many of the college students are bending over and hailing Flair. Flair has an ear-to-ear grin on his face as he walks down the ramp and enters the ring, ready to give Flair Country even more to cheer for. All four men discard their entrance gear, and get ready to wrestle as Nick Patrick orders for the match to start.
Ric Flair & Sting vs. The Outsiders
Tag Team Match
Wow… we’re back in 1998 folks! An influx of the ‘old guard’ have returned to WCW over the past few months; Hennig, Hogan, the nWo as an entity, and now, The Outsiders. You would think WCW is going down a path it never should be going down again, but it’s a different path this one. Surprisingly, the return of these stars have brought in more and more ratings for WCW. Anyways, Ric Flair and Scott Hall started this match off, going through some simple holds, followed by The Nature Boy “chopping down the redwood”, connecting with a plethora of knife edge chops to Hall, heavily reddening Hall’s hairy chest. Flair’s chops let him gain a steady advantage early on, and Naitch proceeded to work over Hall, hitting some more chops when Hall was backed into the corner, plus some well-placed jabs. A few suplexes and knee drops followed, and the infamous strut, much to the delight of Flair Country. Slick Ric made the tag out to Sting, who continued to work over Hall, hitting some chops and punches of his own in the corner, but a sneaky eye poke by Hall allowed him to catch his breath, and connect with a suplex to take the advantage for his team, and tag out to Kevin Nash.
As Nash entered the match past the four minute mark, the pace started to slow down immensely as Big Sexy used his large frame to work over The Stinger. Slow, but big, right hands connected, as well as elbow shots in the corner. For the next five plus minutes The Outsiders dominated Sting mainly, making tags to keep each other fresh, and pounding away on Sting in the corner. The Outsiders almost won the match on several occasions; Nash twice with a big boot and sidewalk slam, Hall with a fall away slam and modified choke slam. However, Sting would either kick out, or much to the crowd’s delight, Ric Flair would come in and break up the count. The Stinger fought back no matter what though, and almost made the hot tag to Flair after hitting Nash with a DDT, but Scott Hall came in and prevented the tag. Eventually though, The Outsiders slipped up, as Kevin Nash missed a big boot attempt, allowing Sting to score huge with the Scorpion Death Drop. As both men slowly recovered and crawled to their corners, Nash made the tag to Hall, and Sting made the hot, hot, tag to Ric Flair, sending Clemson into a frenzy.
With the crowd strongly behind him, Ric Flair did a number on Hall, firing off multiple knife edge chops, sending Hall staggering and then down. A few jabs knocked down The Bad Guy as well, bringing in Nash, only to get knocked back into the corner after numerous knife edge chops. Flair kept up at his pace, firing off hard knife edge’s and jabs, until Ric eventually scored with a big DDT to Hall. A cover was made, and as the crowd anticipated the three, Big Sexy broke it up. Kevin Nash immediately tried to work over Ric with some forearm strikes, but into the ring came Sting, who floored Nash with a clothesline, sending him to the outside of the ring, rolling under the bottom rope. Sting followed, and the two settled into a brawl on the outside of the ring. Back in the ring, Hall regained the control thanks to Nash’s interference, and went for The Outsider’s Edge, but the sneaky Flair scored with a low blow, mule kick style, a thumb to the eye, and then three more knife edge chops. As Slick Ric called for the Figure Four Leg Lock, ‘New World Order’ hit, bringing out Eric Bischoff to the stage, smirking at Flair. As Ric shouted out insults to Eric, Eric continued to distract him, throwing out rude gestures and insults. This gave Hall enough time to recover, and already being behind Flair, easily scored with a low blow, and then The Outsider’s Edge to score the big pin fall victory.
Result: The Outsiders def. Ric Flair & Sting at 12:14
The bell rings, but chaos is still going on at ringside. Outside of the ring, Kevin Nash whips Sting into the steel ring steps, and re-enters the ring, and joins in with Scott Hall in stomping on Ric Flair…
The Big Ending
The Outsiders, Kevin Nash and Scott Hall, start laying into Ric Flair with hard stomps to his ribs, back, and sides, weakening The Nature Boy. The crowd boos, not happy with seeing Flair get beaten down like this in Flair Country. Meanwhile, Eric Bischoff is still standing on the entrance stage, grinning as he watches the events unfold in the ring. The Outsiders continue to assault Ric Flair for almost another half-minute, until Sting rolls back into the ring and tries to fend off The Outsiders. As The Outsiders start to toss right hands at Sting, ‘New World Order’ hits again, and Eric Bischoff grins even more as ‘The Career Killer’ Mike Awesome, Curt Hennig, KroniK, and the WCW World Heavyweight Champion, ‘The Chosen One’ Jeff Jarrett, carrying both his Title Belt and guitar, walk out from the backstage, and stand side-by-side with Bischoff. As Nash knocks Sting down with a clothesline, Eric Bischoff throws his arms at the ring, and the 5 New World Order members start marching down the ramp towards the ring. Eric Bischoff walks down too, but stops right at the ring as KroniK, Awesome, Hennig, and Jarrett surround the ring. Jarrett removes his Title Belt and tosses it to the corner of the ring near him, so he can wield his guitar better. Bischoff starts shouting commands, and the 5 nWo member’s dive into the ring.
Right away, Jarrett drops his guitar as he makes a bee line for Kevin Nash, his opponent for next week. Mike Awesome runs at Scott Hall, KroniK make their way over to Sting as he tries to get to his feet, and Curt Hennig continues the attack The Outsiders started on Flair, who is also trying to get to his feet. Hall drops Awesome with a low blow and clothesline almost right away, just as Jarrett does the same to Nash. Jarrett grins and turns to attack Hall, the other man he has openly admitted to wanting to beat down, only for Hall to break Jarrett’s guitar over his head! The crowd cheers as Jeff Jarrett drops to the canvas, part of the guitar hanging over his head. The odds are still favored for the nWo, as The Outsiders and Flair & Sting can’t work together to take out the New World Order. Help comes soon though as ‘Can You Dig It Sucka!?’ hits to a loud pop, bringing Booker T out onto the entrance stage! He isn’t alone though; The Andersons, Arn and Cal Anderson, and the WCW Tag Team Champions, ‘The Young Lions’ Chuck Palumbo and Sean O’Haire are with him! The 5 WCW loyalists all charge down the entrance ramp and slide into the ring, and the massive brawl only gets bigger!
Chaos wreaks havoc everywhere, as The Young Lions and KroniK brawl with each other, slipping to the outside of the ring by the entrance ramp. Mike Awesome and Sting exchange right hands in one part of the ring, while Booker T and Kevin Nash duke it out, as do Ric Flair and Scott Hall. Jeff Jarrett is still down, but is slowly recovering, as The Young Lions and KroniK continue their brawl on the outside. ‘The New Enforcer’ Cal Anderson and Curt Hennig join in on the outside next to the two tag teams. They’ve been brawling on the outside, and now have made their way to the two tag teams, while ‘Double A’ Arn Anderson chases Eric Bischoff around the ring. Jeff Jarrett finally gets up to his feet, the six men in the ring still brawling, unbeknownst to them. As Jeff plans to launch a sneak attack on Scott Hall, the crowd EXPLODES as ‘Holla If Ya Hear Me’ hits, and ‘Big Poppa Pump’ Scott Steiner comes out onto the entrance stage, sans Midajah, wielding a lead pipe! Wearing just blue jeans, Steiner hits the lead pipe into the palm of his left hand, and then charges down the entrance ramp!
The crowd cheers as Steiner reaches the bottom of the ramp, KroniK, The Young Lions, Curt Hennig, and Cal Anderson in his way. Steiner doesn’t waste anytime swinging the pipe, drilling Brian Adams in the chest, and Bryan Clarke right in the head! Cal Anderson charges, and he gets dropped after a shot to the gut and then the back! Chuck Palumbo comes after Steiner, and gets hits with a hard elbow strike and a shot to the chest with the pipe! Curt Hennig charges next, and Steiner drops him with a shot right to the face with the pipe! Sean O’Haire takes a wild swing at Steiner, but Big Poppa Pump ducks, rams the pipe in his mid-section, and then hoists O’Haire into the air and power bombs him on the concrete floor! The crowd is cheering like crazy for Steiner, and those cheers only get louder as he enters the ring! The six men are still brawling with another, not caring about what else is going on, leaving Scott Steiner to lock eyes with Jeff Jarrett! Steiner charges right at Jarrett, and jabs the pipe into Jeff’s gut! Steiner drops the pipe as The Chosen One doubles over, and Steiner tosses Jeff Jarrett OVER the top rope to the outside with an overhead belly-to-belly suplex!
Steiner roars intensely, fired up as he picks up his pipe. Mike Awesome immediately abandons his battle with Sting once Steiner makes his way over to him, and Big Poppa Pump drops Awesome with a pipe shot to the skull! Meanwhile, Ric Flair goes down from a Scott Hall low blow, as does Booker T from a Kevin Nash eye poke and clothesline! Scott Hall charges Steiner, but a lead pipe to the chest stops him! Steiner takes a quick swing at Nash after hitting Hall, and connects to Nash’s hip before he can block it! Kevin Nash staggers back into a corner, and out of nowhere comes Sting, leaping into the air and squashing Nash with the Stinger Splash! Before Sting can turn around, Steiner hits him in the back of the head with the lead pipe! Everyone is down, both inside and outside the ring (sans Anderson and Bischoff, who are merely encouraging their guys at this point), except Scott Steiner! Steiner raises the pipe into the air, and then notices something he’s been wanting since March 26, 2001; the WCW World Heavyweight Title Belt! As Jeff Jarrett, Booker T, Ric Flair, and The Outsider start getting to their feet, Scott Steiner rolls to the side of the ring, grabbing the WCW World Heavyweight Title! Steiner rolls outside of the ring, Title Belt and pipe in hand, and exits the ringside area through the crowd! Eric Bischoff makes a leap to try and stop him, but Steiner is already over the barrier, and Bischoff flops chest first onto the concrete floor! Jeff Jarrett rolls out of the ring and hops the guard rail, trying to chase Steiner, but he is already too far away! In the ring, Booker T, Ric Flair, The Outsiders and Sting all get to their feet and stare each other down, while the cameras focus on ‘Big Poppa Pump’ Scott Steiner standing in the crowd, raising the World Title Belt into the air.
Tony Schiavone: Oh my God, Professor! This is unbelievable! Scott Steiner not only beat down The Outsiders, WCW, and the nWo, but he has STOLEN the WCW World Heavyweight Title Belt! This might be the biggest moment EVER on Wednesday Nitro!
Yeah, but so was Johnny Stamboli’s turning on Big Vito, right?
Mike Tenay: This is a huge… shocking, turn of events here on Nitro! There’s been pandemonium everywhere tonight! It’s Halloween, and there has been some strange happenings tonight, such as what we just witnessed! However, we are out of time ladies and gentleman! I hope you all enjoyed the show tonight, and have a good night! For Tony Schiavone, I am Mike Tenay! So long, and Happy Halloween!
