Wednesday Nitro

You all will be happy… no opening commentary~! Instead, there’s someone standing in the ring, ready to talk.

You Will Hate The Playa’

Booker T is the man standing in the ring, wearing just tan slacks and black sun glasses, apparently too buff and too cool to wear a shirt. Booker has a microphone in his right hand, and paces around the ring several times before starting to speak.

Booker T: Sucka’s, ten days ago, at Mayhem, I went through hell n’ back, fo’ just two reasons. One, was ta’ get the opportunity of a lifetime, ta’ headline Starrcade n’ wrestl’ fo’ the Dubya-See-Dubya Worl’ Heavyweight Championship! N’ two, ta’ get me some o’ Jeff Jarrett!

The crowd cheers as Booker licks his lips and strokes his chin before continuing.

Booker T: Jeff Jarrett, the Chosen One, has been struttin’ around ‘dis company fo’ the pas’ 2 months wit’ muh Belt, the Dubya-See-Dubya Worl’ Heavyweight Title Belt! ‘Cuz ya’ see, back at Fall Brawl in Septemba’, in the War Games, I walked inta’ that match the Champ, n’ by the time Fall Brawl n’ the War Games was ova’, Jeff Jarrett was the punk ass bitch who walked away with muh Title! I los’ muh Belt at Fall Brawl ta’ Jarrett, wit’out eva’ bein’ pinned, wit’out eva’ tappin’ out, n’ wit’out eva’ getting’ my ass knocked out! I din’t lose crap, but ‘cuz o’ Jeff Jarrett, the n-Dubya-o, n’ the turncoat Hulk Hogan, I los’ muh damn Belt! Naw, wait! I din’t lose *shit*, ‘cuz o’ them, my Belt got STOLEN!

Booker T pauses while he paces about the ring, clearly in deep thought about everything he is saying, and thinking about saying.

Booker T: I’ve always been the top dawg in ‘dis company, n’ I’ve been provin’ it these pas’ few months, even wit’out muh Belt. I got muh revenge on Hulk Hogan for helpin’ Jarrett steal my Belt, n’ ten days ago in the Supa’ Cage, I beat three of the best damn wrestla’s this company had ta’ offa’, n’ I, Booker T, not Sting, not Scott Hall, n’ not even the man everyone said would win, Scotty Steiner, won the Supa’ Cage. Yeh, dat’s right, BOOKA’ T WON!

The crowd cheers and pops for the Booker Man.

Booker T: Ya’ see, I’ve been provin’ that Booker T is the man in Dubya-See-Dubya, n’ all the while, I’ve been gettin’ muh revenge on all the sucka’s who screwed me ova’ n’ stole muh Belt away from me. N’ now, at Starrcade, I’m gonna finish the revenge I started, finish muh crusade I’ve fought through, n’ WIN, ‘cuz I’m gonna make damn sure I do, oh hell yeah sucka’s, I’m gonna win back muh Dubya-See-Dubya Worl’ Heavyweight Championship at Starrcade!

The crowd pops again for Booker T, who nods his head all the while.

Booker T: Jeff Jarrett, I’m a gonna get muh revenge at Starrcade, I’m a gonna knock down you n’ yo’ bitch ass New World Orda’ down a few notches, n’ I’m a gonna start muh path ta’ rediscovery n’ fortune n’ success. N’ ya’ know, Jarrett, I’ve always been about hatin’ the game, not the playa’, but wit’ you, I’m glad ta’ be makin’ an exception. Jeff Jarrett, I hate yo’ guts, n’ I think you’re a two-bit slime, cracka’ ass, politic playin’, stealin’, no good… SON OF A BITCH!

The crowd gives Booker a huge pop, although I guarantee most of them don’t realize a lot of what Booker was saying was coming from the heart. Booker’s eyes become cold, the hate filling his eyes.

Booker T: Jeff Jarrett, I’ve stated it before, n’ I’ll say it again, jus’ ta’ let yo’ punk ass know… I hate you, Jarrett, n’ at Starrcade, I WILL kick yo’ ass, n’ I will win back muh Dubya-See-Dubya Worl’ Heavyweight Championship! But I ain’t gonna win back muh Belt fo’ Dubya-See-Dubya or the boys in the back, naw… I’m gonna win at Starrcade fo’ me, n’ ONLY ME! N’ when I do, ya’lls are gonna be lookin’ at the five time, five time, five time, five time, FIVE TIME, Dubya-See-Dubya Worl’ Heavyweight Champion! So Jarrett, hate the playa’, hate the game, it don’t matter no more ta’ me! ‘Cuz I know ya’ gonna hate me after I kick yo’ ass at Starrcade n’ win back muh Belt! Hate whoeva’ ya’ want, blame whoeva’ ya’ want, the end is still the same! Now can you dig that, Jarrett?

Booker drops the mic to the canvas and “Don’t Hate the Playa, Hate the Game” hits, and Booker exits the ring and walks up the ramp, clearly still in heavy thought about everything Jeff Jarrett, Starrcade, and more.

Tony Schiavone: Hello folks, and welcome again to the broadcast! I’m Tony Schiavone, and ‘The Professor’ Mike Tenay is alongside me, as always. Professor, we’re under 3 weeks away from Starrcade, and Booker T looks like no one and nothing will stop him from getting what he wants most!

Mike Tenay: You’re absolutely right, Tony, and that’s because Booker T has been kicked to the dirt time after time in WCW, not just within the past several months, but throughout his entire career! Booker’s been shoved to the side so unworthy guys like Jeff Jarrett could have the spotlight, but now, Booker T’s not going to let it happen anymore!

Tony Schiavone: I think that many of the great men of World Championship Wrestling are getting sick of the New World Order too, Professor! Starrcade will be a monumental battle for WCW and the nWo, and we already know that Booker T will challenge Jeff Jarrett for the WCW World Heavyweight Championship, and Lance Storm will defend the WCW North American Title against Mike Awesome in a tables match, you have to know that ‘The Nature Boy’ Ric Flair is going to want to get him a piece of ‘Hollywood’ Hulk Hogan!

Mike Tenay: And he’s not the only one either, Tony! ‘Big Sexy’ Kevin Nash wants to fight Hulk Hogan more than he has ever wanted to fight anyone else, so I wouldn’t be too surprised if Nash finds a way to meet up with Hulk Hogan, in the ring, at Starrcade! But then again, Tony, that’s exactly why we have our main event match tonight! Kevin Nash and Ric Flair will headline the show, and it’s safe to say that Hulk Hogan had a big influence in getting Bischoff to make that match!

Tony Schiavone: Well we all know what kind of horrible person Hogan is, so it’s no shocker to see a man like Hulk Hogan put his two biggest enemies against each other. Hogan would rather Flair and Nash try to rip out each other’s throats then team up to take on him!

Mike Tenay: Well, lucky for Hogan, there’s no two better men for that scenario! There’s a lot of history and bad blood between Ric Flair and Kevin Nash, and those two men have wanted to go at each other for a long time now. And don’t forget folks, it was Kevin Nash who played the big hand in Ric Flair losing his Title match at Halloween Havoc to Jeff Jarrett!

Tony Schiavone: That match is going to be of epic proportions, and something no one should miss! But we have a great show from top to bottom tonight, and we will kick off the wrestling action with Shannon Moore taking on the returning Super Crazy, right after this!


When Nitro returns, Shannon Moore is already in the ring, sporting his red pants from the 3 Count days. A couple seconds into the return, the rift of The Doors’ “Roadhouse Blues” hits, bringing out ‘The Insane Luchadore’ Super Crazy to lots of cheers from the crowd. Really, I still don’t understand how he got so over. Crazy sprints down the entrance ramp and dives into the ring, where he raises his right arm and fist into the air. Crazy squints his eyes and sticks out his tongue, looking like a retard who just swallowed dirt, and yet, the crowd still loves it. Alas, the match begins soon after… maybe that’s why they like him… he can wrestle.

Match One
Shannon Moore vs. Super Crazy
Singles Match

The two cruiserweights put on a solid match because well, they’re the cruiserweights, and that’s their role in WCW. Super Crazy dominates the match in the beginning and in the end, but Moore finds himself quite a bit of offense in the middle of the match. Crazy scores with right hands, dropkicks, and arm drags in the beginning, as well as a nicely timed quebrada off the second rope and into an inverted face buster. However, Moore ends up on the offensive side of things after spinning on Crazy’s shoulders to avoid a power bomb before throwing himself backwards, snapping Crazy’s head off the canvas with a reverse hurricanrana! Moore continues to go on the offensive from there and almost grabs the upset when he hits his corkscrew moonsault to the standing Super Crazy. However, the following pin only got two, and Shannon Moore clearly became frustrated, which led to his demise. Moore tries to go for a springboard corkscrew moonsault just moments after the two count, and Crazy easily rolls out of the way. From there, Super Crazy scores with some minor offense before slamming Moore down to the canvas with a power bomb. Moonsaults from the first, second, and third turnbuckle ensue for the Trifecta Moonsault, and Super Crazy makes the pin and is the easy winner.

Result: Super Crazy def. Shannon Moore at 6:02

Super Crazy gets up his feet as referee Mark ‘Slick’ Johnson raises his arm in a symbol of victory, and Crazy marches onto the second turnbuckle of a corner near the entrance stage when “Roadhouse Blues” is cut off, and “Sugar Daddy” starts to play instead. The crowd boos as Super Crazy turns his attention to the entrance stage, and after several moments, the WCW Cruiserweight Champion, ‘Sugar’ Shane Helms struts out onto the stage, dressed sparkly black pants and no shirt. He has his Cruiserweight Belt on his shoulder, and two Sugar Babies at his side, rubbing his chest. Helms smugly stares at Super Crazy for several seconds, a cocky grin across his face. Helms then takes a step away from his Sugar whores Babies, and mock applauds Super Crazy’s victory. The Insane Luchadore stares back at Helms, hatred in his eyes, and even more so when Helms raises his Cruiserweight Title Belt up into the air, showing it off for the fans and most of all, Super Crazy. Helms winks at Crazy once before turning on his heel and strutting to the back with his ‘Babies.

Tony Schiavone: Shane Helms better stay far away from Super Crazy because if he were to have gone to that ring, I think he would have had a big butt kicking in store, Professor!

Mike Tenay: There’s certainly a lot of bad blood between Shane Helms and Super Crazy, Tony, and it’s no secret that Super Crazy wants to get revenge on Shane Helms for the concussion he received at the hands of Helms 10 days ago at Mayhem. Super Crazy tried his hardest to be friends with Shane Helms, but Helms showed him what he thinks of friendship by being a constant jerk to Super Crazy and then hitting that lethal Vertebreaker on a steel chair!

Tony Schiavone: These two men are on a collision course, Professor, and that collision just might occur at Starrcade!

As Tenay and Schiavone look into the camera, the show cuts to the back.

Once and For All

In the interview area, ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund is standing by in his tuxedo, the cowardly Rey Misterio Jr. standing next to him. Surprisingly, Chavo Guerrero Jr. is not with Rey, although the separation between the two is more to highlight just Misterio/Kidman. Now, get ready for a weak promo~!

Gene Okerlund: Hello folks! I’m ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund, and I hope you’re enjoying Wednesday Nitro. I am standing alongside Rey Misterio Jr., and Rey, what are your thoughts on losing that ladder match last week on Nitro, for the North American Championship?

Rey Misterio Jr.: The only reason I lost, Gene, is because of one man. The man who I looked to as a brother, and the man I thought was my best friend, Billy Kidman. Ever since Billy turned his back on me when I was injured, he threw all that out the window, and showed what kind of pathetic person he is.

Gene looks at Rey, repulsed.

Gene Okerlund: What!? Billy Kidman didn’t turn on you! You betrayed him and Konnan both at Souled Out! The Filthy Animals were always there for you, Rey, but it was you who turned your back on them and the fans! You’re outright lying!

Rey Misterio Jr.: Or am I, Gene? Billy Kidman is the piece of crap excuse for a human being; he proved that last week when, unprovoked, he came down to the ring and cost me my match! Kidman’s a horrible person, and a horrible person would turn his back on his friend, especially when he was beaten down onto a hospital bed!

Gene Okerlund: Kidman was just getting back at you for all the times you’ve screwed him over! And if Billy Kidman is a horrible person, it takes one to know one, mister!

Misterio snatches the microphone away from Okerlund, and shoves him to the floor and out of the screen.

Rey Misterio Jr.: I’ve had enough of you and your BS, Okerlund. The fact of the matter is, is that Billy Kidman, you’re a pathetic excuse for a man, and I am sick and tired of this battle between us. I was sick of you holding me down when we were in the Filthy Animals together, and now, all you’ve done is continue to hold me down as I try to break away from you and Konnan. Me and Chavo, we’re the real deal in WCW, and tag team matches like the one we had at Mayhem, hold us down. You, you get the rub from us, but I should be off doing bigger and better things. And you know why, Billy? Because I am better than you. I am better than you, and I always have been. I am the better wrestler than you, and I am the better man than you. And soon, Billy, very soon, I’m going to show you that once and for all. I know just the way to do it, so next week, I’m gonna lay it down for you, my final challenge. We’re gonna find out just who the better man is Kidman, once and for all.

Rey stares into the camera intensely for several seconds before the segment ends and the camera cuts back to the commentary booth.

Tony Schiavone: What does it mean, Professor!?

That you’re a fucktard, Tony.

Mike Tenay: It could mean a lot of things, Tony, but I’m not even going to begin to speculate. All we know is, is that next week, here on Wednesday Nitro, Rey Misterio is going to issue the final challenge to Billy Kidman, to end this blood feud once and for all!

Tony Schiavone: Professor, it’s still so hard to believe that these two men, two form best friends, can go at one another with such vigor and hatred. It’s a terrible sight to witness.

Mike Tenay: You’re absolutely right, Tony. These two men had so much love and friendship for one another, and Misterio just threw that all away in one night, one action. He had been on the shelf for 3 months because of an injury, and when he came back, something changed about him, and he turned his back on the Filthy Animals! I don’t care what has happened between Rey and the Animals, there is still a lot of love and respect for each other between Rey and Kidman, and Rey and Konnan, but I don’t know if those ties can ever be renewed now.

Tony Schiavone: Well I do hope so, Professor. But now, we have to take a short commercial break, but stay tuned because when we come back, ‘Big Poppa Pump’ Scott Steiner returns to the ring, following the Super Cage match at Mayhem! Don’t go away!


When Nitro returns, “New World Order” hits after a few seconds, and Bryan Clarke comes out from the entrance chute, alone. As Clarke makes his entrance, Tenay hypes up Brian Adams’ injury to his bicep, and how we will be out of action from 6 to 7 months. Clarke gets into the ring, looking a little unsure of himself, possibly, as this is a whole new setting for him, having no Adams by his side. After a few moments, “Holla If Ya Hear Me” hits, and the crowd breaks itself apart into cheers and jeers for the one and only, ‘Big Poppa Pump’ Scott Steiner. The Big Bad Booty Daddy comes out onto the entrance stage after several moments, sporting his tights, sunglasses, and chain plate over his head, Midajah at his side. The duo make their way down the entrance ramp and into the ring, the crowd continuing its split reaction for Steiner. Steiner gets into the ring and does some taunts and poses for the crowd, soaking in his return, before tossing the shades and plate to Midajah, who exits the ring. Referee Billy Silverman calls for the bell, and the match gets underway.

Match Two
Bryan Clarke vs. Scott Steiner (w/Midajah)
Singles Match

Scott Steiner is back in the ring with a vengeance while Bryan Clarke is a supposed lost soul, trying to wrestle in singles action instead of in his comfort zone, the tag team ranks. Because of that, Steiner plows through Clarke with ease, and Bryan gets in very little offense. Explosive right hands and forearms knock Clarke down, while various simple slams and suplexes continue to put the Genetic Freak over. Finally, Steiner hits Clarke with a nasty overhead belly-to-belly suplex before locking in the Steiner Recliner submission hold. After just a few seconds, Clarke taps, tapping before he can even be “choked out”.

Result: Scott Steiner def. Bryan Clarke at 3:41

Steiner’s theme hits as he celebrates his victory, but Steiner only does for a few seconds. Silverman tries to raise Steiner’s hand in victory, leading to him getting a big pie-face and a knock down to the canvas. Clarke staggers to his feet afterwards, and Steiner ejects him from the ring via a handful of hair and tights, and a throw between the second and third ropes.

Big Poppa Fallout

“Holla If Ya Hear Me” cuts off and Midajah enters the ring, holding a microphone for Steiner. Midajah gives Steiner the mic, and BPP paces around the ring, looking pissed. Roid rage? I think so.

Scott Steiner: I wanna know what the crap is this!? I frickin’ bust my ass in the Super Cage, I kick everyone’s ass, but at the end of the night, it’s that stupid monkey, Booker T, whose goin’ to Starrcade to fight that bitch ass Jeff Jarrett for the WCW World Heavyweight Title! Booker T gets to go the Starrcade main event, while I ended up spending time in the hospital because I got my ass power bombed off the very top of the Super Cage, fell 20 frickin’ feet, through part of a steel cage, and then a frickin’ wooden table! I get my ass thrown through the air, and next thing I know, I’m freakin’ wakin’ up in a hospital bed with no idea how I got there, and why I have a concussion!

Steiner takes a pause to stroke his goatee, still pissed as hell.

Scott Steiner: I beat the crap out of those rat bastards, but all because of one man, one stupid pussy, the Big Bad Booty Daddy ain’t goin’ to the Starrcade main event! STING! You’re the biggest pussy I know, and you’re the reason why I’m standin’ in the ring, bitchin’ and moanin’ like I had your wife doin’ last night!

There’s a big collective ‘Ooh’ from the crowd, and then a lot of boos from the crowd. However, he’s Scotty fucking Steiner, so there is still some cheers.

Scott Steiner: Stinger, you cheap son of a bitch, I got somethin’ to say to you. I don’t know, and I don’t care where you emo ass is hiding, lurking around in the shadows of the rafters, I don’t give a damn! But Sting, I promise you, I’m gonna hunt you down, and I’m gonna kick the ever lovin’ piss out of ya’! Now Holla, if ya’ hear that!

“Holla If Year Hear Me” hits again, and Big Poppa Pump and Midajah leave the ring.

Tony Schiavone: Scott Steiner, whether you love him or hate him, is still a disrespectable and despicable human being! Fans, I apologize for some of the comments Steiner made, especially for that lewd comment directed towards Sting’s wife. That was disrespectable.

Mike Tenay: I can understand why Scott Steiner is upset, he put in a heck of an effort at Mayhem, but still came up short. That doesn’t rectify any of the things Steiner said, and that’s why some of these people love Scott Steiner, no matter what he says; he’s a loose cannon!

The show cuts to the back quickly.

Order Up, Order Out

Bryan Clarke is seen staggering backstage, heading towards the nWo locker room. Clarke reaches the door, and opens it up before walking in. The chatter that was going on in the room dies out immediately, and there’s an awkward stare down between Clarke and the rest of the clique. After a few moments, Eric Bischoff gets up from the couch, and walks up to Clarke. Bischoff lowers his head in shame as he claps Clarke on the left shoulder. Curt Hennig and Mike Awesome slyly walk over to behind Clarke. Bischoff looks past Clarke’s shoulders, at those two, not Clarke, as he speaks.

Eric Bischoff: This man has expired.

As Clarke starts to look at Bischoff, puzzled, Hennig and Awesome jump Clarke from behind, nailing him with a flurry of stiff forearms and punches to the back of Clarke’s head. Bischoff sits back on his couch and relaxes as some random whore feeds him a grape, while Hogan high fives Bischoff and laughs, while Jarrett cuddles up with Stacy Keibler. The beat down on Clarke continues for several seconds before Awesome grabs Clarke by the head and throws him out the door, and Clarke goes skull first into the concrete wall in the hall way! Awesome walks over to the fallen, apparently unconscious, Clarke, and rips off his nWo t-shirt. Awesome smirks at the beaten Clarke before walking back into the nWo locker room, slamming the door shut behind him.


Tony Schiavone: Welcome back to Wednesday Nitro, ladies and gentlemen, and Professor, it looks like Bryan Clarke is on his way out of the New World Order!

Mike Tenay: On his way out? He’s already out, Tony. With Brian Adams on the shelf, Eric Bischoff must not see too much use for the healthy-half of KroniK, and Clarke is out of the New World Order!

After a few moments pause, “Filthy” hits, and the crowd cheers pretty loudly as the Filthy Animals, Billy Kidman, Konnan, and Tygress, comes out from the back. The trio make their way down the entrance, doing their usual taunts and what-have-you, before entering the ring, ready for action. “Natural Uprising”, a heavy rock tune, plays, bringing out the Natural Born Thrillers, Johnny Stamboli, Mark Jindrak, and Mike Sanders to some boos from the crowd. The NBT still need to get their heat of old back, although thanks in part to some of Stamboli’s actions over the past month, and the crowd’s memory of how much they hated Mike Sanders, it shouldn’t take too long. The NBT make their way down the ring, Stamboli and Jindrak sporting the NBT tees. However, once they get into the ring, those tees come off, and the young standouts prepare for their first match in WCW as a tag team.

Match Three
Filthy Animals (w/Tygress) vs. Natural Born Thrillers (w/Mike Sanders)
Tag Team Match

These two tag teams have a solid match, and the NBT help show the WCW fans what they have to offer. The Animals start the match in control, with Konnan working over Stamboli with brawling tactics while Kidman does whatever is necessary on Jindrak before a dropkick sends Jindrak from the ring. A running tope con hilo over the top rope ensues as Kidman takes Jindrak down on the outside as well. The Animals stay on the offensive side for several minutes later, with Konnan doing most of the offensive work in the ring. However, the tides turn when Johnny Stamboli avoids a running Konnan avalanche in the corner, and follows up with a neck breaker. The Natural Born Thrillers go on the advantage from there, isolating Konnan for the better half of the match, using quick tags, simple double team maneuvers, and keeping Konnan in the corner to stay on the advantage. The NBT get several near falls throughout the isolation period, but about six and a half minutes through, Konnan escapes an attempted double under hook piledriver from Stamboli, and staggers away to the opposite end of the ring before hitting a rolling clothesline. Both men are down and out for a few moments before both making tags, one to Jindrak and then one to Kidman.

The two men explode into the ring, but it is Kidman who goes on the upper hand, knocking down Jindrak with running forearms and dropkicks, before getting the crowd going after hitting a tilt-a-whirl head scissors and then a snap hurricanrana. Kidman keeps taking it to Jindrak for several moments before Konnan tags himself in when Kidman hits the ropes. The Animals start working together to take on the NBT, but after several moments of the momentum picking up, Rey Misterio Jr. comes sprinting down from the back, wielding a steel chair in his hands. Misterio sprints down the ramp and towards Tygress at ringside. Misterio can be seen smirking as he stands behind the unknowing Tygress. Billy Kidman breaks off his fight with Stamboli, looking at Misterio, shaking his head no and shouting don’t do it. Tygress looks at Kidman, confused, until WHACK~! Misterio drills Tygress across the back of the head with a wicked chair shot, and she collapses to the ground. Misterio throws the chair to the ground, and Billy Kidman immediately exits the ring to chase after Misterio. Misterio hops over the guard rail and runs through the crowd, with Kidman in hot pursuit of him. Back in the ring, Konnan tries to continue his fight with Jindrak, but Jindrak gains the upper hand after a big leg to Konnan’s face, and as Jindrak starts to beat down on Konnan, Stamboli joins in for the double team. Several moments later, and Stamboli picks Konnan off his feet and starts spinning until Jindrak stops the spinning by locking onto Konnan’s head and the two Thrillers drop, planting Konnan with a swinging sidewalk slam/reverse DDT combination! Jindrak rolls on of Konnan for the pin, and referee Charles Robinson administers the three count.

Result: Natural Born Thrillers def. Filthy Animals at 9:37

The Natural Born Thrillers immediately start putting the boots to Konnan after the match, as Sanders enters the ring and shouts orders. The crowd boos the beat down on the fallen Konnan, but the crowd starts cheering moments later as The Young Lions, Chuck Palumbo and Sean O’Haire, sprint down from the back, coming to the aide of Konnan. Sanders steps behind Jindrak and Stamboli, smirking. This was what Sanders wanted; Konnan was a ploy to lure out the Lions. Palumbo and O’Haire dive under the rope and into the ring, and a four-man brawl erupts between the two teams. The two teams go at it with an explosive brawl, trading explosive punches for several moments, going back and forth like no other. The Young Lions seem to possibly be getting an advantage after several heated moments of brawling, but Mike Sanders joins the fray, hitting both Palumbo and O’Haire from behind with a double sledge to both men, allowing Jindrak and Stamboli to gain the upper hand on both men. Soon after, Mark Jindrak clubs Chuck Palumbo with a nasty leg lariat, allowing Jindrak the time needed to help Stamboli spike Sean O’Haire’s head off the canvas with a spike Double Underhook Piledriver! O’Haire goes motionless, and moments later, Stamboli hits the swinging sidewalk slam and Jindrak the reverse DDT to Palumbo, leaving both of the WCW Tag Team Champions down and out on the canvas. The crowd boos as the three Thrillers raise arms in the center of the ring, Sanders in the middle, soaking in their mini-victory over the Young Lions. The 3 Thrillers then signal they want the Belts as they stand over Palumbo and O’Haire.

Tony Schiavone: That was just nothing but a series of nasty cheap attacks, Professor! Rey Misterio on Tygress, and then Mike Sanders on the Young Lions after the Natural Born Thrillers attacked Konnan to lure them out!

Mike Tenay: That attack on Tygress by Misterio was uncalled for and simply heinous! We get it, Rey! You want to anger Billy Kidman, but to hit a helpless young lady with a steel chair is not the way to go about it! EMTs are down at ringside attending to Tygress now, and she could be seriously hurt.

Tony Schiavone: Well, we hope Tygress is okay, but Professor, what about the Natural Born Thrillers? What a statement they just made tonight! Mike Sanders lured the Young Lions out to the ring with their attack on Konnan, and then his little help in that brawl was all the Thrillers needed to take the advantage and lay out the WCW Tag Team Champions!

Mike Tenay: The Thrillers are back, and they could be better than ever, Tony. Or at least, that’s what they’re out to prove, and they’re going to attempt to prove that by facing off with the WCW Tag Team Champions, and former members of the Natural Born Thrillers, Chuck Palumbo and Sean O’Haire!

Tony Schiavone: Ladies and gentleman, coming up next, we will have ‘The Career Killer’ Mike Awesome of the New World Order taking on WCW’s undefeated wrestler, ‘The New Enforcer’ Cal Anderson! But before that, we have to take a quick commercial break, so stay tuned, folks!

Before the show does cut to the break, the cameras get a quick shot of EMTs rolling Tygress out of the University of Alabama. Goodbye Tygress.


Before we get to any sort of match or promo, we have an angle to follow up on.

Run For That Border, Beaner!

Somewhere in the Coleman Coliseum, Billy Kidman is in hot pursuit Rey Misterio, who is running his ass off, fleeing the scene after whacking Tygress with that chair. The cameras follow the running sequence between the two, as Misterio runs down a hallway, takes a sharp turn into another corridor, and runs down the hall before reaching two big doors. Misterio pushes through those doors, leading into the parking lot. A topless low rider is stationary several feet from the door, with the man in the driver’s seat being Chavo Guerrero Jr.. Misterio leaps over the door and into the car, and Chavo burns rubber as he peels away from the scene, Kidman getting into the parking lot just as Guerrero drives off. Kidman glares at the two driving away, before kicking the door to the parking lot in frustration.

The show cuts to the interview area then.

Big Sexy in the House

Gene Okerlund is standing by with ‘Big Sexy’ Kevin Nash, dressed to wrestle in his Outsiders tank-top and pants. Okerlund looks a little hesitant to start the interview, seeing as the last time he interviewed someone, he was verbally and physically assaulted/harassed.

Gene Okerlund: Kevin Nash, you uh, you have a big match tonight in the main event, against ‘The Nature Boy’ Ric Flair. Erm, what do you think are your chances, of uh, beating Flair?

Nash’s eyes glower at Okerlund, and Kevin takes a step towards Okerlund. Gene flinches and cowards away in fear of an attack, and Nash laughs hysterically at Okerlund.

Kevin Nash: Easy there, killer. I’m not gonna kick your ass, Gene-O. Now as for my match tonight with Naitch, hey, I’m not stupid. I know exactly what Hogan’s trying to do: he’s trying to kill two birds with one stone. Ric Flair wants to kick Hogan’s ass, and I’m going to kick Hogan’s ass. Hogan wants his two biggest enemies to go after each other, rip out each other’s throats, and you know, man, that’s all good. Because I think all those marks at ringside have forgotten something. I don’t like Ric Flair. In fact, I pretty much hate Flair as much as I hate Hogan. Both of these guys are complete and total douche bags, Gene-O, and it’ll be a damn good time, kickin’ Flair’s ass.

Gene Okerlund: So you’re confident you’re going to beat Flair tonight?

Kevin Nash: Hell yeah, Gene-O! I’m ‘Big Sexy’ Kevin Nash! I kick ass and I take names, Gene. I’m gonna mow through Flair’s old ass tonight… if he gets to the ring. Naitcha Boy, he’s so old he could tear a quad just walking in the ring, but I digress, Gene. Nevertheless, I’m gonna beat Flair tonight, and then, I’m moving on to Hogan. And if Flair wants to try and keep sticking his nose into this too, then I’ll kick both their asses. I’ll gladly retire both men, settle my score with them, and then, I’m moving on to once again win the WCW World Heavyweight Championship. And boys of the nWo, don’t get angry that I’m stealin’ it, because I’m the originator of it anyways… that, Gene, is just too sweet!

Nash gives Gene and the camera a cocky smirk before the action cuts to the commentary booth. Oh, if Nash only knew the dangers of tearing a quad by simply walking in a ring…

Mike Tenay: There’s a lot to talk about from those two backstage happenings, Tony! For starters, Rey Misterio, again, has fled from the scene after getting a cheap attack on the Filthy Animals, and Chavo Guerrero Jr. was his get away! Rey had said Chavo wasn’t here tonight, but he was here, and was here to serve as Rey’s getaway after attacking poor Tygress!

Tony Schiavone: And how about Kevin Nash!? Nash certainly seems like he means business tonight, and he’s made a good point, Professor. We have forgotten about Kevin Nash’s role in the war between WCW and the nWo. Kevin Nash is not a WCW-supporter; he despises WCW just as much as he does the New World Order, and he hates Ric Flair as much as he does Hulk Hogan!

Mike Tenay: And that’s how The Outsiders like to play it, Tony. Kevin Nash and Scott Hall are their own team, they’re on group and faction. They don’t need anyone else, although Nash is by himself for now as Scott Hall is on the shelf after that nasty fall he took off the roof of the first cage of the Super Cage, at Mayhem! For those who somehow forgot, Scott Hall fell over 20 feet in the air, falling from the top of the first cage through this announcer’s table we sit at now.

Tony Schiavone: That was a scary moment, Professor, and we still don’t know the status of The Bad Guy, except for the fact that he is believed to have suffered a serious concussion and some head trauma. It looks like Kevin Nash will be flying solo for a while, but I think Nash will be able to handle himself, even if he is fighting both WCW and the New World Order!

The two commentators finally shut their yaps, and “Enforcer” hits, bringing out ‘The New Enforcer’ Cal Anderson and his uncle, ‘The Enforcer’ Arn Anderson, to cheers from the crowd. Arn walks like he’s still sore from the beat down he received last week, but that’s not going to stop him from being by his nephew’s side for this match. The Anderson’s get into the ring after walking down the ramp, and “New World Order” hits, bringing out ‘The Career Killer’ Mike Awesome, Curt Hennig at his side, to boos from the crowd. Awesome simply walks down the ring, staring down Anderson as he marches down the ramp and into the ring, while Hennig struts down the ramp behind him, smirking cockily and whatnot. Awesome enters the ring, removes his nWo sleeveless and side-cut tee, and gets ready to compete.

Match Four
Cal Anderson (w/Arn Anderson) vs. Mike Awesome (w/Curt Hennig)
Singles Match

Anderson and Awesome have themselves a solid match, going through some simple chain holds before exchanging stiff blows to one another. Anderson and Awesome bamboozle each other senseless with forearms, punches, and lariats, making for a fun time. The match slows down after two minutes or so, with Awesome working over Anderson’s back and neck with clubbing blows, slams and suplexes… the works. However, Anderson turns the tides on Awesome soon after. Awesome turns a suplex into a modified power bomb with a release vertical suplex, and Awesome heads up to the top turnbuckle afterwards, looking for a Frog Splash. Anderson gets his knees up though, and after moments of recovery, the two start going at each other with heavy blows, and Anderson soon gets the advantage. Cal really gets Awesome reeling after a leg lariat and a wheelbarrow suplex. Anderson soon calls for the Anderson Spinebuster, but before he can even attempt to hit it, Curt Hennig rolls into the ring and levels Cal with a running forearm to the back of Anderson’s head. Referee Scott Dickenson immediately calls for the DQ.

Result: Cal Anderson def. Mike Awesome at 7:08 via DQ

The crowd boos as Awesome and Hennig immediately start putting the boots to Anderson. Arn looks to the ball and tries to signal for help, while the two nWo boys continue to lay the boots to The New Enforcer. However, help comes moments later as Lance Storm sprints out from the back, down the ramp and into the ring. Storm leaps off his feet and knocks down Awesome and Hennig with a leaping double clothesline! The crowd pops as Storm starts hitting the two men right hands, keeping the two men at bay long enough for Anderson to get back to his feet and join in. The faces continue to lay into the nWo heels with right hands for several more moments until Cal Anderson throws Henning in between the second & third ropes to the outside, while Storm sends Awesome over the top rope. Double A gets into the ring and celebrates with Cal and Lance, raising their arms as Awesome and Hennig have a stare down with Storm and the Anderson’s.

Tony Schiavone: And that is what we need, Professor! WCW needs to have each others backs, and that’s exactly what Lance Storm did! He had Cal Anderson’s back!

Mike Tenay: It’s hard to believe just how much Lance Storm has blossomed as not only a wrestler in these past few months, but as a person too. Storm is becoming a go-to-guy for people to depend on, and a great all-around person. However, he’s going to have his hands full with Mike Awesome at Starrcade! Mike Awesome is an excellent, diverse wrestler, and that tables match at Starrcade is going to be a great one!

Tony Schiavone: It most certainly will be, Professor, and while we have just 2 matches confirmed so far for Starrcade, we have a general knowledge of what to expect for Starrcade, and next week you can expect to get official announcements on other matches for Starrcade! However, we have to take a commercial break, but stay tuned because up next, your main event!


When Nitro returns, instead of going straight to the main event, a video plays.

The Following Announcement Has Been Brought To You… Without the Red Color

The screen starts off black with the nWo logo at the bottom-center of the screen, and the screen has text that reads…

nWo Guy: The following announcement has been paid for by the New World Order

That cuts to the screen having a dark tint to it, the sign of the New World Order. Several clips of Jeff Jarrett breaking guitars over the heads of slapnuts’ play for a few moment first.

nWo Guy: Booker T is not Championship material…

Jeff Jarrett breaking a guitar over Booker T is shown

nWo Guy: Booker T is street trash…

A still photo is shown of a little black boy standing in front of a dumpster, looking sad

nWo Guy: …A common thug, self-serving gangster…

An old school GI Bro shot of Booker T is shown, although he looks much more of a gangster than a military man

nWo Guy: …He has no respect for anyone…

Booker is shown attacking a referee

nWo Guy: …Booker T can’t keep a marriage intact or care for his family…

A wedding picture of Booker T and his recently divorced wife Levestia is shown, digitally enhanced and ripped in half

nWo Guy: Booker T is a convicted criminal…

Booker T’s mug shot from when he was arrested for burglary is shown

nWo Guy: …Sentenced to 19 months in prison for armed robbery…

The same mug shot is shown

nWo Guy: Booker T doesn’t care about his company or anyone in it…

Booker is shown attacking another referee, hitting a Book End to Sting off the top of the Super Cage, and attacking his own brother, Stevie Ray

nWo Guy: Booker T is inferior to Jeff Jarrett…

Jeff Jarrett is shown hitting Booker over the head with a guitar, again, and hitting Booker with The Stroke

nWo Guy: Jeff Jarrett is The Chosen One…

Jarrett is shown dressed up in a suit and tie, the WCW World Heavyweight Title Belt proudly on his right shoulder, Jeff flashing a nice smile all the while

nWo Guy: …Someone people can rely on to show class and dignity…

Jeff Jarrett is shown helping an old lady across the street

nWo Guy: Jeff Jarrett is a real man’s Champion…

Jarrett is shown making successful pins on Booker T, and then on Ric Flair

nWo Guy: …At Starrcade, let’s be sure to keep it that way…

Jarrett is shown celebrating in the ring, clutching the WCW World Heavyweight Title Belt to his chest

nWo Guy: On December 16, Jeff Jarrett will beat Booker T at Starrcade to retain his WCW World Heavyweight Championship.

Jeff Jarrett is shown sitting on a pedestal, holding the Belt on his right shoulder, looking serious

Jeff Jarrett: I’m your WCW World Heavyweight Champion, Jeff Jarrett, and I approve this message.

Another shot is shown of Jarrett sitting on the pedestal, looking very serious. The video then fades back into the black screen, but with just the nWo logo in the middle.

The video ends and the show cuts back to the live arena, and the loud “HOOOOOWWWLLL” hits right away, and the crowd both cheers and boos as ‘Big Sexy’ Kevin Nash walks out from the back, looking calm yet confident. Nash raises his right arm into the air, his hand flashing the sign of the Wolfpack. Big Sexy proceeds to then walk down the ramp and into the ring, where he repeats the same taunt. After a few seconds, “Also Sprach Zarathustra” hits, and the crowd explodes as ‘The Nature Boy’ Ric Flair walks out from the entrance chute, his arms slightly out to soak in the reaction, a smile on his face. Sporting a green and white sequin robe tonight, Flair spins slowly on the entrance stage once before walking down the entrance ramp. Once Flair climbs up the ring steps and gets onto the apron, the smile vanishes from his face as he stares down Nash. Flair cautiously enters the ring, and disrobes, staring down Nash all the time. Once ready to go, Flair walks to the center of the ring, and gets nose-to-throat with Nash, the two longtime rivals and enemies trash talking each other. The two step back then, and referee Nick Patrick calls for the bell to ring, and the main event is underway.

Main Event
Kevin Nash vs. Ric Flair
Singles Match

The match itself may be pretty much shit, but the crowd thinks that their shit smells damn good. The beginning of the match starts off very slow, with tie-ups that lead to mainly Nash shoving down Flair, long stare downs, and your standard traditional, old school, big-name match up. Say what you want about Nash, but when motivated, he can tell a great story in the ring, and he can work an old-school style match. After over three minutes of it though, the match starts to get into some sort of rhythm. Flair is the man of the offensive side of things with a plethora upon plethora, upon plethora, of knife edge chops. The crowd loves it, and it is simple and effective. Flair uses simple offense on Nash for several minutes, although the tides turn when Flair charges Nash in the corner, and takes a boot to the face. After some spinning and staggering, it’s the, dare I say it, Flair Flop~!

Nash goes on the offensive side of things for a long portion from there, using his size and strength on Naitch to club him senseless. And because I want to finish this show, just know it was a good time; people loved it, Flair sold it. After a lengthy amount of the beat down, Flair comes back after escaping the Jack Knife Power Bomb attempt with a sneaky thumb to the eye and a low blow. Of course, because it’s Flair, the crowd cheers it. After the two men recover, Flair starts to go on the offensive with knife edge chops, and also manages to get Nash up and over for a suplex. However, Nick Patrick ends up taking a ref bump just before the suplex, rendering him ‘unconscious’ as the two men fight on. Several moments later, ‘Hollywood’ Hulk Hogan slowly walks out from the back, a steel chair loosely held in his right hand. Nash and Flair don’t see Hogan walking down the ramp, and continuing fighting, with Flair still in control. As Hogan gets down to the bottom of the ramp, Flair tries to whip Nash into the ropes near Hogan, but the whip is reversed, and Flair goes into the ropes. As Flair hits the ropes, Hogan swings the chair, and drills Naitch across his back! Flair staggers forward after the shot, and Nash easily scoops Flair up and drops him down to the canvas with a Jack Knife Power Bomb! Nash falls onto Flair and makes the pin, as Nick Patrick ‘coincidentally’ revives himself, and makes the 3 count, albeit at a slow rate than usual.

Result: Kevin Nash def. Ric Flair at 12:12

Kevin Nash is declared the winner by David Penzer, although Nash is in no celebrating mood. Nash gets up to his feet, rips off the two straps of his top from his shoulders, and demands Hogan gets into the ring with him. Hogan smirks at Nash all the while, looking cocky as can be. However, Hogan licks his lips and nods his head, complying with what Nash wants the most. Hogan slowly climbs up the ring steps, walks along the apron, and enters the ring. Nash and Hogan step up into each others faces, and started having a shouting match with one another. The crowd is buzzing, waiting for the first punch to be thrown, and Nash steps back after a few seconds, in what will probably result in a sucker punch, but Ric Flair, back on his feet, barges in between the two men, and one-arm shoves both men. Flair starts shouting at both Hogan and Nash, but surprisingly Nash more than Hogan. Flair eventually turns his back on Hogan, shouting right in Nash’s face, much to the delight of Hogan. After several seconds of continued shouting and trash talking between Flair and Nash, Hogan roughly shoves Flair from the back, sending Flair right into Nash. Nash responds with a huge right hand to Flair, and a big brawls breaks out between Flair and Nash, the two men slugging one another with everything they have. While their brawl erupts and continues, Hogan slyly exits the ring, and backs up to the bottom of the entrance ramp, smirking away as the two men do battle.

Tony Schiavone: What a manipulating act by Hulk Hogan!

Mike Tenay: Hulk Hogan set this whole thing up for the fight between Nash and Flair to only escalate! He whacked Flair with a steel chair, Nash beat Ric because of it, and he helped instigate the fight between Flair and Nash that we’re now witnessing! Things are heating up between 3 of WCW’s biggest legends, but fans, we are out of time!

Tony Schiavone: Fans, be sure to tune in next week to Wednesday Nitro because we’re going to have more of the road to Starrcade! The puzzle will come together more next week! Goodnight, ladies and gentlemen!

The camera gets one more shot of Ric Flair and Kevin Nash still brawling with each other as Nitro comes to its end.

Re: WCW 2001- The Trio Ownership


Strong promo from Booker to kick off the night. The 'worked-shoot' aspect of some of Booker's comments later on in the promo were spot on. The way you write Book's promos are a mixed bag for me. On one hand, it's incredibly realistic, while on the other, it's a bitch to read sometime. I have to say it out loud to get what he's saying and that looks rather stupid to the people around me. ~___~ Anyway, smart way to kick off the show, adding hype to the Starrcade ME.

Crazy over Moore makes sense. The staredown with Helms and Crazy was a bit disappointing considering the rather scathing promo that Helms cut last week. More next wee, I guess, rit?

HEEL MYSTERIO! Decent promo from little Rey-Rey in the beginning; his delusional approach was rather entertaining. Got quite generic after that though, but no harm, as it hypes whatever he's got planned for next week.

Steiner squash? Always a good move. Steiner promo? Always a better one. OMFG, Steiner is awesome. I've gotta find someone even remotely like this guy on the current roster and steal his gimmick. He says some rather wild shit. Sting-Steiner being setup for Starrcade sounds solid.

I like Wrath. Better that he's not in the nWo though. He (and KroniK as a whole) never seemed to fit, imo(even though Adams was already in a previous version ~_______~).

lmao. Mysterio hits Tygress with a chair? Vicious. I still don't buy into Mysterio as a heel (in the least, really) but more angles like this can only help. Racist subtitles. ---->

Nash's promo was alright. Nothing special just a bit of hype for his feud with Hogan and his match with Flair. Naitch going over clean plz.

Turn Lance Storm back into a loner plz. Much more badass and effective that way, imo. Angle was good enough though, continuing this beef between the nWo and WCW which has seemingly cooled down for a bit.

Jeff Jarrett helping an old lady across the street is almost the greatest visual ever. Nice video package. Glad that Booker T's past history is being brought up on the way to Starrcade. Adds to the underdog role that the Booker Man will be playing against Jarrett and the nWo, while Double J continues to bring it up as a negative.

Hogan coming down with the chair was pretty similar to Mysterio. No biggie. Anywho, effective closing to the show. Nash gets the win and we get the obligatory show-closing brawl. Don't think Flair could hang with Nash in a flat out brawl though. Hogan's manipulative involvement was well done.

Get Hogan and Flair on the mic plz. Strong show, per always. Outside of Booker's, the promos were a bit off but there was enough on this show to effectively hype Starrcade. Thumbs up.

for the week of September 28th

Re: WCW 2001- The Trio Ownership

Opening promo was fantastic. Not because it was realistic, which you know it was (which also makes mine and Mac's eyes bleed), but because it effectively made me think that Booker is taking the title at Starrcade. He's now my prediction to win the match, therefore, the promo worked wonderfully.

Of course, opening match has to be cruiserweight action in DUBYA SEE DUBYA! I'm not a fan of a Helms/Crazy feud becuse only one man can do the talking, so Helms is gonna have to carry it, although you're using Helms well, with the subtle cocky heel things such as winking at Crazy before strutting away.

Eh, it's a Mysterio interview, you already know it's not exactly good, haha. However, I really liked how you wrote him, trying to convince himself and everyone else that he's right, despite him being clearly wrong. I love when the heel believes what he's doing is right. Although I still can't take him seriously as a heel.

Side note...

Tony Schiavone: What does it mean, Professor!?

That you’re a fucktard, Tony.
Gold. I love you.

Steiner squash is the only kind of squash worth having. Well, not really, but Steiner rules. HAHAHA I loved the promo afterwards, especially the first paragraph, because it was so ridiculous and with such bad English...meaning it's perfect for a Steiner promo. It did it's job in the usual entertaining way Steiner works, so good job. Nothing out of the normal, though. Steiner/Sting would be awesome at StarrCade in terms of star-power.

I loved the 'Order Up' segment, mainly because of how Bischoff was basically the Godfather of the Mafia...one quick line and destruction follows. Short and effective, love it.

Good tag match for TV, and Misterio killing Tygress is pretty cool even though it's still generic heel stuff from a midget man, haha. I loved the tag brawl afterwards because it really showed how, two on two, the Young Lions are better, but Sanders plays a factor. I'm guessing Sanders gets banned from ringside for StarrCade. My only problem is that Kidman/Misterio is practically an after-thought due to the longer and bigger brawl after the match. It was an overbooked segment, and one of the feuds had to take a hit because of it; this time it was Misterio/Kidman, even with the chase segment following.

Nash says he hates Hogan and Flair and he's going to beat them up. I know they can't all be winners, but you made Nash sound...almost bland. Ew.

Damn, I wanna see Awesome and Anderson throw stiff lariats at each other!!! Anyway, aftermath was expected, just normal way to build the feud between Storm and Awesome, along with WCW/NWO.

AWESOME segment, which really got Booker's underdog role over even more while displaying how big of egomaniacs the nWo really are. Great hype for the title match, and I'm hoping for similar types of things in the following weeks.

Pretty big main event, and it delivered the best it could considering the time period and both men's bodies/work at this point. The Hogan interference was obvious, but how he made Flair get angrier at Nash than himself was not. Very cool. Nash's promo now seems even more important, since Hogan got exactly what he wanted, despite Nash thinking he wasn't gonna be manipulated. Perfect way to end the show.

Overall a very solid show, lots of good build torwards the big feuds leading into StarrCade, which happens to be shaping up nicely. Considering you, I was expecting a bit more creativity in some parts, but that's unfair to you since the simple/normal stuff has to be done every now and then, it's effective. Looking forward to next week. 8/10

Re: WCW 2001- The Trio Ownership

'Spanks you two. I'll try and lighten up the Booker slang a bit, so it's an easier read on everyone.

Also, updates probably won't be too frequent. I have a side project I am working on over at EWB, and to be frank, it's a lot more fun than writing BTB. I'm doing a diary of the Miami Dolphins with Madden 2008... it's a nice change of pace. However, school starts up next week again, so my time will be limited, and I am trying to write a Starrcade match after each Nitro. I remember it took me forever to write Living Dangerously for ECW when I just wrote the PPV. This way, the updates between Nitro's will be longer, but there won't be over a 1-month wait for the PPV.

However, I can happily announce that Starrcade will most likely be the last PPV I ever write in full. I don't have the desire, motivation, need, or urge to write matches in full all the time. I'll write all of Starrcade in full, the January PPV, Sin, will be all recapped (I may write the promos in full), and Super Brawl will have 1 full match and full promos, the rest of the matches recapped. I just don't have the urge to write PPV matches that go over 8 pages all the time. It's not needed.

Haven't started the next Starrcade match or anything yet, but might today. I want to review Paranoir and kane01 still, and then I'll try and hook the Tri-State boys up.

Re: WCW 2001- The Trio Ownership

Heyman Deciple’s Nitro Review

Booker T Promo: Nice promo here from Booker and a good way to start the show. I thought it was a really well done intense promo, heading into Starrcade. My only minor complaint might have been maybe a little too much slang from Booker T but then again the promo was in character and it still worked. So whatever. Good stuff.

Super Crazy vs. Shannon Moore: First your description of Super Crazy before the match was golden. This looks like it was a fun fast paced cruiserweight match up with Super Crazy picking up the win, which makes me happy. After the match we get a little stare down between Cruiserweight champ Shane Helms and Super Crazy, which could be an awesome match down the road and once again your descriptions are great. The Sugar whores line was pretty damn funny.

Rey Mysterio Interview: I enjoyed this interview as Rey being the heel is very different and I liked his use of reverse psychology and blaming Kidman for being a scum bag and turning his back on him when it was actually the other way around. And by the way your response to Shavone, calling him a fucktard was amazing.

Scott Steiner vs. Bryan Clarke: Nice short match to make Steiner look dominant in his return, which was good. I liked it.

Scott Steiner Promo: Good follow up promo here from Steiner as he let’s us know he blames Sting for what happened to him and he’s pissed. And a pissed off Scott Steiner is personally my favorite kind of Scott Steiner.

Bryan Clarke – New World Order: Fun segment here, as Bryan Clarke walks in and Eric Bischoff coolly tells him he’s expired. Clarke then gets beat down by Mike Awesome and Hennig while Hogan and Bischoff chill out on a the couch and Jeff Jarrett gets to cuddle up with Stacy Keibler. Lucky bastard.

Filthy Animals vs. Natural Born Thrillers: Solid match and I’m so glad the Thrillers got the win. I was always a pretty big Thrillers fan if for no other reason than because Mike Sanders rules. Any way the Thrillers got the win thanks to some help from Rey Mysterio. To be honest I never really saw Rey as a heel but I think your doing a really good job of giving people reasons to dislike him. Like Rey hitting Tygress with the chair, It’s because of this I feel the Rey Mysterio heel turn has worked pretty well so far. After the match with Konnan still being beat down by the Thrillers, out come the Young Lions and a fight breaks out between the two teams in which ultimately the Thrillers gain the advantage. Leaving the Thrillers looking pretty strong.

Rey Mysterio – Billy Kidman: Nice little segment here as Kidman chases Rey out of the building and Rey jumps into a car with Chavo Guerrero and they drive off.

Kevin Nash Interview: Solid Interview here with Nash. I like how Gene started off the interview scared. By the way the tearing the quad getting into the ring line by Nash was both funny and ironic. Good stuff.

Mike Awesome vs. Cal Anderson: This seemed like a good stiff match, too bad it ended in a disqualification but still it was good and I enjoyed what happened after the match as well with Awesome and Hennig continuing their attack on Cal Anderson and Lance Storm coming out to make the save.

Jeff Jarrett N.W.O video: I liked this, especially Jarrett helping the old lady across the street.

Kevin Nash vs. Ric Flair: Your opening line regarding this match is very true even if Flair and Nash have a bad match the people still want to see them. All in all this looked to be a solid main event with Nash picking up the win thanks to some interference from Hogan. After the match just when it looked like Nash and Hogan were about to go at it, Flair got involved and because of a push from Hogan, Flair and Nash wind up beating on each other while Hogan happily looks on.

I felt this was a very entertaining show; I liked it, I give it an 8 out of 10.

And if you feel like giving my BTB a look that would be appreciated, Thanks.

Not currently watching WWE... I refuse to continue to be part of the problem by supporting something I do not enjoy.

To get my PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING fix, I am currently spending my money on independent wrestling and listening to the following podcasts:

Solomonster Sounds Off
Wrestling Soup
Don Tony & Kevin Castle

Re: WCW 2001- The Trio Ownership

Billy Kidman vs. Rey Misterio Jr. Added to Starrcade!

Billy Kidman and Rey Misterio Jr. were best friends, and in a single act, turned hated enemies when Rey Misterio turned on Kidman and the Filthy Animals at Souled Out in August, viciously assaulting Kidman and Konnan. The two men have feuded intensely ever since, including matches at Fall Brawl, Halloween Havoc, and Mayhem. Over time, Billy Kidman has never been able to truly defeat Misterio in a one-on-one contest, although he holds count-out and disqualification victories over Rey. However, the rivalry is set to be settled once and for all when the two men go one-on-one at Starrcade! Details are sketchy at this point, although it can be definitely and officially confirmed that Billy Kidman vs. Rey Misterio Jr. will go down at Starrcade. More information is expected to be revealed on December 12, 2001, on Wednesday Nitro. Neither man will be at the upcoming Wednesday Nitro however; Billy Kidman and Konnan are visiting with their friend and Filthy Animals member, Tygress, who was viciously assaulted by Rey Misterio Jr. last week on Nitro. Misterio and his running buddy, Chavo Guerrero Jr., are vacationing in Mexico.


WCW Wednesday Nitro Preview- December 5, 2001

World Championship Wrestling will host its next primetime edition of Wednesday Nitro on NBC this Wednesday night at 8 PM EST! WCW is just eleven days away from the biggest pay per view in wrestling, Starrcade, and tonight Nitro will be live from the MCI Center, in Washington DC! Join “The Voice of WCW” Tony Schiavone and “The Professor” Mike Tenay for another two-hour, action packed edition of World Championship Wrestling!

Wednesday Nitro promises to be a huge night so close to Starrcade, and from start-to-finish there will be nothing but action! To start off the show, there will be the official contract signing between the WCW World Heavyweight Champion, ‘The Chosen One’ Jeff Jarrett, and Booker T, for their main event WCW World Heavyweight Championship match at Starrcade! Tensions are high between the two longtime rivals, as in the past two weeks, Booker T has driven Jeff Jarrett through a table with a Book End, and Jeff Jarrett “sponsored” a video that took ridiculous shots at Booker T! The two men have also said other heated things about each other, and there could very well be some mayhem when those two men enter the same ring to sign their contract for Starrcade!

Your main event for the evening will feature the returning Curt Hennig take on ‘The Nature Boy’ Ric Flair! Hennig will be making his in-ring return against the 14-time World Champion, after suffering a broken nose in a match at Halloween Havoc and further aggravating his injury the following Wednesday Nitro after an attack from ‘Big Poppa Pump’ Scott Steiner. Hennig will be looking to return to the ring with a big victory over Flair, and he may have some help in his corner, in the name of ‘Hollywood’ Hulk Hogan! Flair, Hogan, and ‘Big Sexy’ Kevin Nash have all been having their problems with each other for a while now, and the three longtime rivals could have further interaction with each other on Nitro! No matter what, this main event will definitely be a throwback to the days of the NWA, and will not be a match you want to miss!

Also tonight on Nitro, the WCW Cruiserweight Champion, ‘Sugar’ Shane Helms, and ‘The Insane Luchadore’ Super Crazy will do battle against each other in tag team action! Shane Helms and Super Crazy both will have the opportunity to find themselves a tag team partner, and the two teams will then wrestle on Nitro! With problems continuing between the two cruiserweights, expect a hard-hitting battle on Nitro! Speaking of tag teams, though, one-half of the WCW Tag Team Champions, The Young Lions, will be in action tonight as well! Sean O’Haire will be in singles action against Mark Jindrak! Sean O’Haire and Mark Jindrak are former WCW Tag Champs together, but now they’re on opposing sides on Nitro! Jindrak will have the rest of the Natural Born Thrillers by his side, and the two sides of the formerly cohesive and full Natural Born Thrillers will look to score a victory over their friends-turned-enemies on Nitro.

Last week on Nitro, Rey Misterio Jr. viciously assaulted Tygress with a steel chair during a Filthy Animals tag team match. Rey Misterio Jr. was able to make a getaway after the attack, thanks in part to the driving of Chavo Guerrero Jr. Billy Kidman was giving chase to Rey Misterio, but he was unable to get his hands on his sly rival. Billy Kidman was expected to be at Wednesday Nitro to make an announcement regarding himself and Rey Misterio Jr., but it has been confirmed that Kidman will not be in attendance on Nitro. Instead, Billy Kidman, as well as Konnan, will be visiting Tygress in the hospital, who is not doing well after the attack from Misterio. Both Misterio and Guerrero will not be at Wednesday Nitro either, as the two are believed to be vacationing in Mexico. However, as previously reported on the WCW.com website, Billy Kidman and Rey Misterio will wrestle at Starrcade, although next week on Nitro, Billy Kidman will be in attendance, and will have a special announcement to make about the match for Starrcade.

‘Big Poppa Pump’ Scott Steiner returned to WCW with a victory last week, and called out Sting after his match. Sting did not answer Steiner’s words, and the Crow has not been seen since Mayhem when he wrestled in the Super Cage match, in a losing effort. Scott Steiner will be in action tonight on Wednesday Nitro, as he will take on ‘Das Wunderkid’ Alex Wright. Will Steiner call out Sting again on Nitro, and if so, will the Stinger answer call!? As always, Nitro promises to be an exciting showcase of professional wrestling that you do not want to miss! Be sure to tune into NBC this Wednesday night at 8 PM EST to catch all the action!

Confirmed Matches:

Alex Wright vs. Scott Steiner
Curt Hennig vs. Ric Flair
Mark Jindrak vs. Sean O’Haire
Shane Helms & ??? vs. Super Crazy & ???

OOC: Expect some good stuff on this Nitro, hopefully. It's almost done, and I've liked a lot of what I have written so far. Match wise, nothing special. This show is dedicated to mass Starrcade build, and it includes some pretty solid promos, if you ask me. I really want to step Nitro up a notch for this show to try and help the Starrcade build up, as it's rather difficult to try and build up a PPV like Starrcade upon a return to a thread. So hopefully this is a good 'un.

Also, I wanted to put the Kidman/Misterio thing in quotes, but WF is retarded with the quote tag now, as it cuts some of the text off. I'd rather let my readers be able to read everything than make it look more proper, mmhmm.

Re: WCW 2001- The Trio Ownership

Nitro looks to be full of chocolatey goodness, Szumi. CONTRACT SIGNING~! You know it's PPV time when we get a contract signing. If Double J is dropping at Starrcade, he needs to whoop Booker's ass tonight

I'm sure you know though, I'll only be tuning in ... for Big Poppa Pump. His feud with Sting needs to be awesome to do it justice...

World Championship Wrestling
Wednesday Nitro
MCI Center, Washington D.C.
December 5, 2001



Tony Schiavone: Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to WCW Wednesday Nitro! We are just eleven days away from “the grand daddy of pay per views” Starrcade, and folks, tonight is a show that is bound to have major signings and announcement for the show! I am ‘The Voice of WCW’ Tony Schiavone, and joining me for tonight’s broadcast, is ‘The Professor’ Mike Tenay! Professor, it’s always great to be at your side, calling all the great World Championship Wrestling action!

Mike Tenay: And it’s a pleasure for me too, Tony. Fans, tonight is going to be a great show, with huge ramifications for Starrcade! You will get to see one-half of the WCW Tag Team Champions, Sean O’Haire, take on one of his former partners and friend, Mark Jindrak! The Young Lions and the newly reformed Natural Born Thrillers are on a collision course, and tonight just might be that collision! Also, the WCW Cruiserweight Champion, Shane Helms, and a partner of his choosing will take on Helms’ rival, Super Crazy, and a partner of his choosing! These two men have a history between them, and things are only going to get more heated tonight!

Tony Schiavone: And in our main event tonight, ‘The Nature Boy’ Ric Flair will go one-on-one with New World Order member, Curt Hennig! Hennig is making his in-ring return after suffering an injury at Halloween Havoc in October, and he will be looking for the victory tonight!

Mike Tenay: And we know that he may be getting help in that match, in the name of ‘Hollywood’ Hulk Hogan! Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan, and ‘Big Sexy’ Kevin Nash have had a lot of problems with each other for a while now, and a history that dates back years ago! Hulk Hogan has tried to retire Ric Flair on numerous occasions in their careers, and Hogan has cost Kevin Nash the WCW World Heavyweight Championship as well! These three men all have long history with one another, and they’re all in the MCI Center tonight!

Tony Schiavone: However, this is one definite Starrcade match that is probably the most personal match in the history of this sport, and that is the WCW World Heavyweight Championship match, ‘The Chosen One’ Jeff Jarrett versus Booker T! There is a lot of bad blood between these two men, and right now, they’re about to have the official contract signing for their match at Starrcade! Let’s cut to the ring right now!

And what Tony says, goes… so we cut to the ring.

It’s Like, A Contract Signing

The ring has a light black (what a conundrum~!) carpet covering the canvas, and there’s a fancy looking desk in the middle of the ring. On the center of the table, is the contract for Starrcade, with two pens on top of the contract. There are also two microphones on the desk, on opposite sides of each other. Three chairs surround the long desk, two on the side nearest the ring stage, and one of the opposite side. A black podium is adjacent to the table, and standing at the podium is ‘The Living Legend’ Larry Zbyszko. Apparently Larry Z gets TV time now. After a few moments, Larry Z speaks into the mic set up to the podium.

Larry Zbyszko: Hello everyone, and I would first just like to say, welcome to WCW Wednesday Nitro, and that I hope you enjoy the show. I am out here tonight, on behalf of the WCW board of directors, to mediate the official contract signing for the Starrcade main event, the WCW World Heavyweight Championship match between the Champion, ‘The Chosen One’ Jeff Jarrett, and the challenger, Booker T.

The crowd cheers heavily for the match.

Larry Zbyszko: At this time, I would like to bring out the challenger for the main event, a four-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion, a great wrestler, a great man, and a great friend… ladies and gentleman, Booker T!

The crowd explodes into cheers as “Don’t Hate The Playa, Hate The Game” hits, and after several seconds, Booker T walks out from the entrance chute and onto the stage, wearing a white polo shirt and tan slacks. Booker T marches down the ramp, not doing any of his signature poses or anything. Booker enters the ring, and sits right down at his chair on one side of the table. Booker reaches across the table and grabs the contract, as well as a pen.

Larry Zbyszko: Booker T, by signing this contract, you hereby understand that you are contractually obligated to compete at Starrcade for the WCW World Heavyweight Championship, on Sunday, December the 16th, at the Georgia Dome, in Atlanta, Georgia. Should you find yourself unable to compete, you will be stripped of your Title shot. If you accept the terms, then sign the contract.

Booker gives Zbyszko no look of acknowledgement, and simple signs the contract. The crowd cheers.

Larry Zbyszko: Thank you, Booker. Now at this time, it is my duty to call out the Champion, representing the New World Order, ‘The Chosen One’ Jeff Jarrett.

New NewNew
New New

After several seconds, ‘The Chosen One’ Jeff Jarrett and the WCW President, Eric Bischoff, strut out to the back, just to heavy boos. Hogan, he can get some cheers, but not a Jeff Jarrett. He sucks. The two men make their way down the ramp, both men dressed in black jeans and nWo t-shirts, although The Bisch has a black leather jacket on as well. Jarrett makes up for it with the WCW World Heavyweight Title Belt on his right shoulder, his kick ass orange-tinted sunglasses on his face, and black & white guitar in his hand. The two men enter the ring, and take the two seats opposite Booker T. Eric Bischoff hands Jeff as pen as Jarrett props his guitar up against the table.

Larry Zbyszko: Jeff Jarrett, by signing

Bischoff cuts off Larry after picking up the mic on the nWo side of the table and speaking into it.

Eric Bischoff: Larry, Larry, Larry… just shut the hell up.

The crowd cuts off Bischoff with boos.

Eric Bischoff: Larry, nobody cares what you have to say. The good ole’ boys sent you down to the ring tonight to make this look all nice and proper, but the fact of the matter is, you’re a grizzled old veteran that no one gives a damn about. So how about you just stand there, and shut your mouth. You’re a WCW contracted agent, while Jeff Jarrett is contracted by the New World Order. The New World Order contracted men will take care of the contractual proceedings for the nWo contracted wrestlers. Got that? Good.

The crowd boos as Larry glares at Bischoff. Booker T glares at both men, upset with the total disrespect shown to the Living Legend. Bischoff and Jarrett lightly chuckle.

Eric Bischoff: Now Jeff, we all know it’s a retard process, but the good ole’ boys in Atlanta, they’re tradition freaks. But don’t worry, Jeff, once we kill off WCW, the only tradition will be the nWo tradition. However, until then, Jeff, by signing this contract, and ensuring your victory over Booker T, you hereby agree that you, a New World Order contracted member, will defend the WCW World Heavyweight Championship against this street trash, Booker T, in the main event of Starrcade, on Sunday, December 16th, at the Georgia Dome, in Atlanta, Georgia. If you agree, sign the contract.

Jeff signs the contract, and then asks for the microphone from Bischoff. Eric happily obliges.

Jeff Jarrett: You know, Eric, that little speech of yours, it was pretty damn good. However, you forgot one little thing in it.

Bischoff looks at Jarrett, confused, while Jarrett simply smirks all the while.

Jeff Jarrett: You forgot to say that after I beat that piece of crap right over there, I’m going to re-dub this Belt on my shoulder the nWo World Heavyweight Championship!

The crowd boos as the two men laugh. Booker T rolls his eyes, but says nothing, instead, staring the two men down all the while. Jarrett notices this, and speaks to Booker.

Jeff Jarrett: What’s the matter, Book? Did I offend you or something? Well too bad! It’s time for you to wake up out of the fantasy world you’ve been living in, and hear the music playing in your ears. You’re not even half the wrestler of what The Chosen One is, and at Starrcade, this Belt is staying with me!

The crowd boos as Jarrett hands the mic over to Bischoff.

Eric Bischoff: Booker, I feel bad for you. Really, I do. Here you are, the last hope for WCW to knock off Jeff Jarrett and win back your precious WCW World Heavyweight Title. That’s a lot of heart break for you, Booker. Knowing that when you lose at Starrcade, to Jeff Jarrett, you were WCW’s last failed hope. Ric Flair couldn’t beat Jeff Jarrett. Kevin Nash isn’t even on your side, and he couldn’t beat Jeff. And Sting, he wasn’t even good enough to beat you! There’s no way he could even come close to beating Jeff Jarrett, although then again, I doubt you can either. World Championship Wrestling is a dying breed, Booker. WCW is a sinking ship, while the New World Order, we’re its own entity. We don’t go down with the ship. I, along with every other member of the New World Order, are not WCW contracted superstars; we’re our own brand. So when Jeff here kicks your ass at Starrcade, puts the final nail in WCW’s coffin, you all will go down with it, while the New Word Order takes over, and reigns supreme.

The crowd boos, and Bischoff smugly smirks at Booker T. Booker strokes his chin a couple times before picking up the microphone by his right hand.

Booker T: Ya’ know somethin’, ya’ can speak all yo’ self wants about Dubya-See-Dubya dyin’ after Jeff Jarrett beats me at Starrcade, ‘cuz ya’ll in for a wake-up call! And on December 17th, ya’ll gonna get it, when you wake up Jeff Jarrett, and realize you ain’t the Champ no more! Booka’ T is gonna be the Worl’ Heavyweight Champion then, sucka!

The crowd cheers, as the smug face starts to leave Bischoff’s face.

Booker T: An’ all this talk ‘bout the last failed hope? The man before me, he was the last failed hope! At Starrcade, I ain’t failin’ nobody! I’m tellin’ all ya’ll, straight up, Booka’ T is winnin’ back his Dubya-See-Dubya World Heavyweight Championship at Starrcade! And no one, NO ONE, is gonna stop me from winnin’ back what should still be mine anyways! An’ that includes the arrogant redneck piece of *shit* and his presidential blowin’ boyfriend right in front of me!

The crowd explodes into cheers at the insults from Booker T, and Bischoff tries to jump across the table and attack Booker T, although Jeff Jarrett places his arm in front of Bischoff’s chest, being a road block. Booker nods his head softly a few times, licking the side of his lips and chuckling at Bischoff’s anger. Jeff Jarrett shows no anger, instead, he simply smirks at Booker, and surprisingly chuckles lightly. Jarrett then takes the microphone Bischoff dropped on the table, and speaks.

Jeff Jarrett: That’s cute, Book, real cute. But you keep trying to get the cheap pop with the insult, while I just tell you the facts. And the facts are, Booker, that you just can’t beat me. Booker, you are inferior to me! Heh, in this manner, I’m the supremacist.

The crowd doesn’t really pick up on the line, but Booker does, and his eyes sharpen as he glares intensely at Jarrett.

Jeff Jarrett: Booker, you’re a black man from the ghetto. You are a convicted felon. You married some street trash whore, and you weren’t even good enough for someone like her. She divorced you. You’re a terrible father; your son hates you. You care about no one but yourself. You even betrayed your own brother, Stevie Ray. Do you really think that you’re the kind of person who is good enough to beat The Chosen One? You’re a black hole, Booker T. You’re reprehensible, and the sooner you get gunned down in a dark alley, the sooner this world improves.

The crowd boos the fuck out of Jarrett after those comments, while Booker T starts to shake with rage, his fingers trembling like crazy. Even Booker’s face is shaking.

Jeff Jarrett: Booker T, you can believe in God, you can believe in karma, or even Buddha, at the end of it all, it’s the good who win out in the end. The black souls, the horrible people, the Booker T’s of the world, they come out losers. Booker T, you’re loved by only yourself. You’re not the kind of person who gets to walk into the biggest pay per view in wrestling, overcome the odds, and defeat the greatest wrestler in the industry to win the World Heavyweight Championship. This isn’t some kid writing your fortune, it’s reality.

Hah, the irony.

Jeff Jarrett: But you see Booker, it’s more than just who you are. It’s clear what kind of person you are, the man who ran over his own grandmother if it would get him money or opportunity… but Booker, even if it’s just a test of talent against talent, you still lose. It took you 7 years in WCW to win your first World Heavyweight Title; it took me less than 6 months to win mine. I’ve wrestled all around the world, won Titles every place I’ve ever been. You’ve barely been anywhere but this crap hole of an organization. You were a no one, Booker, a perennial mid-carder until you were shoved through the glass ceiling by management. The World Heavyweight Title, it was given to you on a silver platter. At Starrcade, my Belt ain’t going to given to you on a silver platter, Booker. You’re going to have to fight to get it, you’ll have to earn it! And Booker, you can’t beat me for the World Heavyweight Title, you just don’t have it in you to be better than The Chosen One. At Starrcade, I will beat you. I guarantee it.

Jarrett places the microphone back down on the desk, and the two men stare one another down intensely. Tension so thick, you can cut it with a knife~!

After several extended moments of silence, Booker T speaks.

Booker T: Ya’ know, Jarrett, I ain’t gonna sit here n’ try to rebut everythin’ you said. Naw, I ain’t gonna be like that. But I do gotta tell ya’ somethin’. I find it so… ironic… that you of all people are talkin’ ‘bout a guaranteed World Heavyweight Title win.

Some members of the crowd ‘Ooh’, while others cheer, and others remain silent. Some read the ‘net, others do not. Booker T stares down Jarrett, hate in his eyes, while Jarrett smugly snickers at Booker. Bischoff has a slightly worried look in his eyes. Let’s not break kayfabe, boys~!

Booker T: You, Jeff Jarrett, have been guaranteed everythin’ you eva’ wanted. Yo’ punk ass was born into this business, a silver spoon in yo’ mouth. Ya’ got all the breaks ya’ needed, when ya’ wanted ‘em. There was no glass ceilin’ for Jeff Jarrett! Me, I had to fight my way to where I am now. I had to scratch n’ crawl, work muh ass off, to get to where I am now… but not Jeff Jarrett. Ya’ got all the breaks into the business, an’ now that ya’ in Dubya-See-Dubya, ya’ got the New World Orda’ behind yo’ back, doin’ everythin’ for ya’! How many of these Title matches did yo’ cheap ass win by yo’self? Zero. Jarrett, ya’ got a bunch o’ thugs doin’ yo’ dirty work, an’ ya’ got the man in power next to ya’ to make sure The Chosen One is comfy as Champ. The n-Dubya-o guaranteed yo’ World Heavyweight Title reign. Not me, Jeff. I ain’t get none of that! But at Starrcade, I’m gonna snap all of ya’ll out of the fantasy world ya’lls been livin’ in!

Booker pauses while some members of the crowd cheer.

Booker T: The New World Orda’ has been livin’ large n’ in charge, but I got some news for ya’. There’s a new orda’ comin’ to Dubya-See-Dubya an’ it starts at Starrcade’s end, when I beat yo’ ass and become a five-time, five-time, five-time, five-time, FIVE-TIME… Dubya-See-Dubya World Heavyweight Champion! Now can you DIG THAT!? If not, you can suck on Bischoff’s slap nuts, SUCKAAA!

Booker T twirls the mic out of his hand, gets out of his chair and dives over the table, leaping at Jeff Jarrett and tackling the two men (and the chair) down to the canvas. Booker T starts wailing away at Jeff Jarrett with a plethora of heavy right hands! Jarrett tries to cover up, but nothing can stop Booker T as he wails away at his arch-rival. Well, Eric Bischoff can, as he starts kicking at Booker! Booker T quickly rolls off Jarrett and up to his feet, and Bischoff swings away at Booker with a spinning martial arts kick. Booker ducks it and drills Bischoff with a throat thrust! Bischoff staggers after the hit, and Larry Zbyszko steps in between Bischoff and Booker T. Zbyszko grabs a hold of Bischoff, lifts him up into the air and scoop slams Bischoff onto the canvas! The crowd cheers as Booker T and Zbyszko high five one another… WHACK~! Jeff Jarrett breaks the guitar over the back of Larry Zbyszko’s head! The Living Legend drops like a ton of bricks, and Booker T quickly turns around to face Jarrett, and gets a kick in the low abdomen! Booker keels over, and Jarrett quickly grabs a hold of Booker, and hip tosses him onto the desk! The desk doesn’t break, and Jarrett quickly climbs up onto the desk behind Booker as he staggers to his feet on the desk… THE STROKE THROUGH THE DESK! The crowd boos as Booker T is laid out, large wooden fragments resting by and on his ‘unconscious’ body. Jeff Jarrett gets up to his feet, and grabs his fallen Belt. Jeff straps the WCW World Heavyweight Championship Belt around his waist, and helps Eric Bischoff up to his feet. Bischoff cockily takes a couple stomps at the fallen Zbyszko, while Jarrett stands over the fallen Booker, and spits on him! The cameras focuses on Jarrett looking down at the Booker, a smug smirk on his face.


When Wednesday Nitro returns, the camera is on the commentary team.

Tony Schiavone: Welcome back to Wednesday Nitro, and fans, what you saw just before the break was absolutely heinous, and Jeff Jarrett and Eric Bischoff should be ashamed of themselves, especially Jeff Jarrett!

Mike Tenay: The actions are remembered the most, Tony, but the words that Jeff Jarrett said, those horrible, disgusting, vile, and nasty things that Jeff Jarrett said to Booker T is absolutely atrocious! How Jeff Jarrett can try and make Booker T out to be a horrible person is beyond me, when Jeff Jarrett is nothing short of common white trash!

Tony Schiavone: That match at Starrcade is going to be such a personal battle, that you’d be crazy to miss it! The hatred between these two men is only going to increase on our way to Starrcade!

Mike Tenay: And if their hatred fuels their actions, I don’t see how both of them will be able to get to Starrcade, healthy and ready to compete!

Schiavone and Tenay sit in silence for a moment, until the camera cuts to the entrance stage as “Young Lion” hits, and the crowd cheer as the WCW Tag Team Champions, The Young Lions, Chuck Palumbo & Sean O’Haire, come out from the back. Both men are sporting white WCW tee’s, while Palumbo has yellow trunks and O’Haire black and yellow biker trunks. The two men bash their right inner forearms together before jogging down the entrance ramp and diving into the ring. The two strike a pose in the center of the ring before “Naturally Uprising” hits, bringing out the three Natural Born Thrillers to some jeers from the crowd. Mike Sanders leads the way, dressed in a black suit, while Mark Jindrak and Johnny Stamboli are behind him. Both men are dressed to wrestle, sporting white Natural Born Thrillers tee’s; Jindrak has red biker trunks while Stamboli has his black baggy pants. The three men march down the ramp and to the ring, although only Jindrak enters the ring. Palumbo exits the ring as O’Haire and Jindrak both take off their shirts. The two men prepare for battle, and referee Mark ‘Slick’ Johnson calls for the bell to start the match.

Match One
Mark Jindrak (w/Johnny Stamboli & Mike Sanders) vs. Sean O’Haire (w/Chuck Palumbo)
Singles Match

The two former partners (and Champions) have themselves quite the nice match, going through some simple sequences at the start of the match before going into a hard-hitting brawl between the two men, while the commentary unit hypes the long history of Jindrak and O’Haire, as well as the complete history of the Natural Born Thrillers. The intensity of their brawl only helps show how much deep animosity Jindrak has for O’Haire. The match slows down eventually, as Jindrak gains the advantage after showing off his athletic ability, hitting a springboard back elbow off the second rope. Jindrak goes to town on O’Haire for a lengthy period of time, using simple, all-around offense to wear down O’Haire. However, the tides turn when Jindrak tries to hit a flying leg drop from the top rope, but O’Haire rolls out of Jindrak’s trajectory. O’Haire then goes on the offensive, big time, taking to Jindrak and hitting an explosive running clothesline before hitting Jindrak with a nice-looking death valley driver. Sean O’Haire then went up to the top turnbuckle, and hit the Seanton Bomb onto his former partner. As O’Haire goes for the cover, Mike Sanders holds Stamboli back from breaking up the count, and Johnson counts the 1-2-3, giving the victory to O’Haire.

Result: Sean O’Haire def. Mark Jindrak at 6:11

The crowd cheers as Palumbo enters with the ring, and he and Johnson raise O’Haire’s arms in victory, while Mark Jindrak slowly rolls out of the ring. Johnny Stamboli greets Jindrak at the bottom of the entrance ramp, while Mike Sanders grabs a microphone from the timekeeper’s table before walking around the ring and over to the rest of the Thrillers. Meanwhile, Chuck Palumbo finally gives O’Haire his Tag Team Belt back.

The First Of Many

The Young Lions’ theme cuts off, and Mike Sanders brings the microphone in his hand up to his mouth, looking arrogant as can be.

Mike Sanders: Congratulations, boy, congrat-u-lations. Sean, you celebrate this victory tonight, celebrate good, boy. Tonight, on a meaningless Nitro, the Young Lions got a victory over the Natural Born Thrillers. But at Starrcade, in just eleven days, the only victory that matters, will belong to the Natural Born Thrillers!

Palumbo & O’Haire look at Sanders confused, while Jindrak and Stamboli smirk at the two.

Mike Sanders: It’s not that hard to figure out, “bros”. The Natural Born Thrillers, we’re the best thing around, and that’s why at Starrcade, Mark Jindrak and Johnny Stamboli are going to be challenging you two for the WCW Tag Team Championships! And boys, I’ll tell you two right now… the Thrillers are taking back what’s theirs at Starrcade! We know you two better than you boys know yourselves. Sean, Chuck, the three of us traveled the USA with you two, we trained at the Power Plant with each other, we spent long days and sleepless nights together. Sean and Chuck, when you two try a move on Mark or Johnny, they’ll already know what you’re doing, and they’ll already have a counter for it. “Young Lions”, you two are looking at the real talent of the Natural Born Thrillers, and after Starrcade, you’ll be looking at the NEW WCW Tag Team Champions! And you know what the best thing is? There’s not a damn thing you two are going to be able to do about it!

Mike Sanders loudly laughs (and incredibly obnoxiously at that), and Jindrak and Stamboli cup Sanders on the back of his shoulders. “Natural Uprising” hits, and the two teams stare each other down as the show cuts to commentary.

Tony Schiavone: Oh my goodness, Professor! The Young Lions will be defending the WCW Tag Team Championship against the Natural Born Thrillers at Starrcade!? What a match added to Starrcade!

It’s the return of the Shillinator himself~! Don West ain’t got shit on the shilling ability of Tony Schiavone.

Mike Tenay: That is definitely a match that should be exciting for everyone to see at Starrcade! There’s a lot of history between the Natural Born Thrillers and the Young Lions as, after all, Palumbo & O’Haire were in the Natural Born Thrillers and arguably the top two standouts of the faction!

Before Tony can make any more of you contemplate suicide, the show cuts to the back.

Cock Blocked by the Crow

The cameras are in a backstage corridor, where ‘Big Poppa Pump’ Scott Steiner and Midajah are… walking~! Steiner has his left arm around Midajah’s shoulder, and the slut celibate, lovely young lady has her head on Steiner’s pectoral as the two walk down the corridor. After several seconds, Steiner grabs Midajah’s ass with his left hand before picking her up off her feet and ramming her into his locker room door. How do I know it’s his door? Because the sign on the door says so.

Scott Steiner: C’mon, Midajah. Time for me to show you what the Freakzilla is all about!

Steiner starts peppering kisses on Midajah’s neck as she (feigns) moans.

Midajah: Aah, again? I don’t know, aah, know if I can go again. Three times was great, but a fourth? I can only take so much of you in me at a time!

Note to self: never let Midajah speak again… she sucks at acting.

Scott Steiner: Shut it, bitch. Service the Big Bad Booty Daddy.

Midajah: Hehe, if you insist.

Midajah reaches around grabs the knob, twisting it… the door knob, perverts. The door opens, and Steiner walks in, Midajah wrapped around his torso, legs straddling his hips… to find the lights off. Apparently, Big Poppa Pump doesn’t like this.

Scott Steiner: What the hell is this *shit*? I didn’t turn the damn lights off! Midajah, hit the frickin’ lights!

Midajah apparently frees herself from BPP, and turns on the lights. When the lights flicker on, the locker room is completely trashed. Chairs are knocked over, Steiner’s bag is on the floor, the contents of it everywhere. 5 bucks to whoever finds the syringe~! However, the floor is not what catches Steiner’s attention. Dangling from the ceiling by a thin, clear wire, is a black baseball bat.

Scott Steiner: That son of a bitch! Midajah, clean this place up! I’m going to find that emo bitch!

Steiner looks around the locker room, and spots what he was looking for. No, not the syringe! He finds the lead pipe on the floor, picks it up, and marches out of the room, looking to find “that emo bitch”, better known as Sting. In summation, Sting just cock blocked Scott Steiner, and that makes Freakzilla mad.


When Nitro returns, we’re in the backstage area, still, although this time, in the backstage interview area.

Pride In All Things Storm

In the interview area, dressed in his usual tuxedo, ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund is standing by Lance Storm, who is dressed in simple jeans and a WCW t-shirt.

Gene Okerlund: Hello fans, this is ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund, and I am standing by with your WCW North American Champion, Lance Storm! Lance, you have the night off tonight, but you still have been given this interview time right now. With nothing to talk about for you but Starrcade, what are your thoughts about your tables match with Mike Awesome for the North American Title in eleven days, at Starrcade?

Lance Storm: Gene Okerlund, I’m not going to ask if I could be serious for a moment because we know by now, that’s just how I always am. As for Mike Awesome, we go way back, me and Mike. We’ve wrestled together in WCW, but before that, we were wrestling in bingo halls, watching each other beat the crap out of some of the best wrestlers in the world, and also wrestling one another. I know Mike Awesome’s style, and he knows mine. I’ve studied him wrestle and put people through tables, and he’s studied me wrestle circles around every professional wrestler that’s ever stepped into the ring with me. We’ve wrestled against each other, and we’ve wrestled together as a tag team. We’ve been running bodies, and we’ve been rivals. So you see, Gene, I know Mike Awesome, all of his tendencies, the decisions he makes in the ring, everything. I’ve beaten him time after time after time, and to be frank, I am better than Mike Awesome.

Gene Okerlund: Lance, while you may be, at Starrcade, doesn’t Mike Awesome have somewhat of an advantage on you? The tables match is Mike Awesome’s favorite match, and a match he’s quite good at! Plus, Mike Awesome has the New World Order on his side; they could show up in a pack.

Lance Storm: If the New World Order wants to bring everyone, then I’ll just bring something they’ve never seen before! But Gene, I don’t think I’ll have to worry about that. Mike is a man of pride, Gene. He’s going to walk into the ring at Starrcade by himself, and he’ll fight me like a man. Mike Awesome may not be a man of class, but he’s still a man, something that can’t be said for the rest of the nWo. Mike will fight me one-on-one, and I respect that. We both love the thrill of competition, but at the end of the day, this is more than competition. This is personal! Because you see, Gene, I am just like Mike Awesome, in some ways. I am a man of pride, and the New World Order tried to take away my pride! The nWo tried to make me join their cause, and while doing so, they disrespected Canada, they disrespected my North American Championship, and they disrespected me! I am a man of pride and principles, Gene, you know that.

Gene Okerlund: Yes, yes you are.

Lance Storm: Then you know that when you mess with my pride, you’re in for a fight with me. The New World Order, they have no pride, no principles. I take great pride in representing the great nation of Canada as the WCW North American Champion, and as odd it may seem, Gene, I even take some pride in representing Mexico… and the United States. But Gene, I take great personal pride in representing myself in every single thing I do! The New World Order, including Mike Awesome, spit on my pride! They spit on my principles! So at Starrcade, Mike Awesome can bring all the tables he wants because no matter what, I am going to defend my Belt, and I am going to defend my pride! And I will win! Do you know why, Gene?

Gene has no clue… he’s old, simple logic is past him.

Gene Okerlund: Erm, why?

Lance Storm: Because I am the best wrestler in WCW, Canada, North America, and the world. And at Starrcade, I’m going to get serious for more than just a moment, and I’m going to prove it!

Storm crosses his arms and stares into the camera intently as the camera gives him a semi-close up before cutting back to ringside.

Tony Schiavone: Welcome back to Wednesday Nitro, folks! It’s been such a wild night, and so much more keeps happening with each and every moment!

Mike Tenay: And as you all saw just before the break, it appears the ‘The Man They Call’ Sting is in the building tonight, and he is playing mind games with ‘Big Poppa Pump’ Scott Steiner!

Tony Schiavone: And Lance Storm is ready for his North American Title match at Starrcade against ‘The Career Killer’ Mike Awesome! But now, it is time for the tag team match between the WCW Cruiserweight Champion, ‘Sugar’ Shane Helms, and ‘The Insane Luchadore’ Super Crazy!

Mike Tenay: Both Super Crazy and Shane Helms got to pick a tag team partner for this match, and we can now confirm that Shane Helms picked The Wall as a tag team partner, and Hugh Morris offered his services to partner with Super Crazy!

Tony Schiavone: Those are interesting choices, Professor, so let’s see how it works out for the two men!

See: it’s a random fucking match, and we’re putting The Wall and Hugh Morris on TV because they barely are anymore.

After a few moments, the rift of “Roadhouse Blues” hits, bringing out both ‘The Insane Luchadore’ Super Crazy and Hugh Morris to cheers from the crowd. Wow, these people still remember Hugh Morris? I guess not everyone in DC are crack heads after all. The two men enter the ring after slapping hands with the crowd at ringside. “Sugar Baby” hits next, and the crowd boos as both ‘Sugar’ Shane Helms and The Wall come out from the back, Helms showing off his WCW Cruiserweight Title Belt on his right shoulder, and the Sugar Babies are all around the two. The Wall seems very eager to have all these women around him, and has two on each arm. The wrestlers & whores walk down the entrance ramp and to the ring; The Wall climbs up over the top rope and into the ring, while Shane Helms gladly stands in his corner to start the match.

Match Two
Hugh Morris & Super Crazy vs. Shane Helms & The Wall
Tag Team Match

This is rather a random and mismatched match, but the four men in the ring do what they can with the short time they get. Shane Helms makes The Wall do pretty much all of the wrestling in the match, but he does well, taking it to both Super Crazy and Morris throughout at least the first half of the match. Helms only comes into the ring to face-off with Morris, or Super Crazy when he’s down. However, Helms always does great when he’s in the ring, although that would be because of the advantage The Wall had already given him. Nevertheless though, Hems is quick to point out his excellence, but never the advantage from The Wall. Helms’ cockiness costs him later on though, as Morris recuperates while Helms’ gloats, and Morris gets up to his feet, unbeknownst to the Cruiserweight Champ. When Helms finally turns around to face Morris, he is shocked to see him standing, ands ends up getting planted with a hard forearm and then a Samoan drop.

Tags are made to Super Crazy and The Wall, and everything goes down hill for the heels as Crazy and The Wall brawl for a bit, and Crazy ends up hitting a tilt-a-whirl head scissors into a DDT after The Wall whips Crazy into the ropes. Super Crazy tries to get Shane Helms into the ring, but Helms backs off, instead leaping off the apron and walking back up the entrance ramp with his Sugar Babies. Hugh Morris comes back into the ring, and he ends up planting The Wall with a power bomb before climbing up to the top, and hits his No Laughing Matter moonsault! Super Crazy then goes to the same corner, and hits moonsaults off the first, second, and third turnbuckles, the Trifecta Moonsault! Crazy makes the pin, and referee Scott Dickenson counts the three.

Result: Hugh Morris & Super Crazy def. Shane Helms & The Wall at 5:18

The crowd cheers as Super Crazy and Hugh Morris embrace after the match, and Dickenson raises their arms in victory. Aw, yay; Super Crazy made el friendo!

Háblele español? Parlez-vous français?

As the two men continue to celebrate in the ring as “Roadhouse Blues”, Shane Helms brings a mic up to his mouth. Hey wait? Where did that microphone come from?? I guess those Sugar Babies really are loose.

Shane Helms: Hold up! Let’s all wait just a second here! Now Super Crazy, I don’t want you to celebrate like this is some big victory, so don’t get your hopes up, holmes. You and fat-so in the ring beat The Wall, a no-name hack. That doesn’t mean anything! That’s not a special victory, Crazy! You, there is NOTHING special about you. In my eyes, you’re just another two-cent-an-hour lettuce picker!

The crowd lays into Shane Helms with boos, while Hugh Morris whispers to Crazy what Helms is saying. I guess Hugh can speak el spanisho.

Shane Helms: Super Crazy, you’re so pathetic you have to come out here with some stupid fake alias. Super Crazy!? What kind of stupid ass name is that? I mean, don’t get me wrong, essa, it makes sense. If you used your real name in WCW, border patrol would be all over your ass and shipping you back to Mexico before you can say “livin’ la vida loca”.

Helms laughs hysterically at his joke… despite it being fucking laaaame. The crowd boos the border patrol comment. Super Crazy shakes his head at Shane Helms while Hugh Morris walks over to a stagehand, and gets a microphone from him. Morris walks over to Crazy and brings the mic up to his mouth, ready to speak for Crazy. However, Super Crazy puts his hand on Morris’ wrist, and in, GASP, English, can be heard asking for the mic. Confused, Morris obliges.

Super Crazy: Shane Helms… I speak slooowly… so a dumb ass like you… unda’stand me.

The crowd cheers pretty loudly, while I’m still confused. Spanish people speak American~!?

Super Crazy: Shane, you a coward… and a PU-ssy!

The crowd cheers big time, while Shane Helms is simply fuming on the entrance stage.

Super Crazy: An’ Shane, I make a speak… with board o’ directors… an’ they give, SUPA’ CRAAAZY… match wit’ joo… AT STARRCADE!

The crowd continues to cheer loudly, as they want a Crazy/Helms match at Starrcade. Shane Helms shakes his head no repeatedly, refusing to believe it. I guess Helms is forgetting that just two weeks ago, he said he’d kick Super Crazy’s ass anytime, anywhere (paraphrasing).

Super Crazy: But wai’… there’s mooore! ‘R match at Starrcade…. It a be for CRUISE-serweight Champ-e-on-ship!

Shane Helms yells out ‘No’ repeatedly, while Super Crazy grins like a ‘tard. But wait, there’s more.

Super Crazy: An’ at Starrcade… I am a going to win… for the U-S-of-A!

Super Crazy starts chanting ‘U-S-of-A’ while Morris tries to tell him just ‘USA’. He gets it, and Morris and Crazy start chanting ‘USA’ with the crowd. Shane Helms can’t believe he has to defend his Cruiserweight Title against Super Crazy at Starrcade… and I can’t believe Super Crazy is chanting USA. I hate non-existing-patriotism.

Mike Tenay: What a shocker that is, Tony!

Tony Schiavone: I know, Professor! Super Crazy can speak English!


Mike Tenay:

Yeah, me too, Tenay.

Mike Tenay: …I, uh, was referring to the match at Starrcade… Shane Helms defending the WCW Cruiserweight Championship against Super Crazy. But yes, uh… Super Crazy speaking English is quite the shocker folks. And yes...

The show thankfully cuts to the back.

Kick Your Cardboard Ass

‘Big Poppa Pump’ Scott Steiner is walking around backstage, carrying his lead pipe in his right hand. He walks past a stagehand, and immediately turns to him and accosts him.

Scott Steiner: Where the hell is he!? Where’s Sting, you stupid son of a bitch!?

Steiner grabs the skinny stagehand man by the collar, and lifts him off his feet.

Stagehand-Whose-About-To-Get-Killed: …I don’t know! P-pl-please don’t hurt me!

Steiner throws him five feet through the air and into the concrete wall. Haha, n00b. Two stagehands nearby go and check on the one who just got snuffed by Scotty Steiner, and Steiner walks over to them and clubs them over their heads with the lead pipe! They collapse to the ground, ‘unconscious’, and Steiner keeps walking then. The Genetic Freak keeps on walking, twirling his lead pipe in his fingers as miscellaneous and random people scatter away from him. Steiner then rounds a corner, and right there is Sting! He’s just standing there, still as a board, and Steiner swings the lead pipe at him… and takes his head off!?

It’s at this point that Steiner realizes, that it is a cardboard cut-out of ‘The Man They Call’ Sting. The cardboard head falls a few feet away from the rest of the cut-out, and infuriated, Steiner kicks the cardboard cut-out, making it fall to the ground before stomping the legs of the cut-out flat. As Steiner continues to stomp away at the cut-out, the show cuts to a…


Tony Schiavone: Welcome back to Wednesday Nitro folks, and boy is Scott Steiner ever angry, Professor!

Mike Tenay: That he is, Tony. Steiner has a score to settle with Sting after Sting power bombed Scott Steiner off the top of the Super Cage at Mayhem, taking away any chance Big Poppa Pump had of winning the Super Cage match and moving on to Starrcade to wrestle Jeff Jarrett for the WCW World Heavyweight Championship.

Tony Schiavone: And Scott Steiner had a great chance of winning that match too, Professor! He fought with a lot of intensity, and was definitely a favorite to win that match, but Sting took out Steiner, and at the end of it all, Booker T was the best man at Mayhem, and now he is going to Starrcade to wrestle against Jarrett for the World Heavyweight Title.

Mike Tenay: And speaking of, it has been announced during the break that next week on Nitro, Booker T will team up with ‘The Living Legend’ Larry Zbyszko to take on the WCW World Heavyweight Champion, Jeff Jarrett, and Eric Bischoff! That match is of course stemming from what happened to kick off the show when Booker T and Jeff Jarrett had their official contract signing for their Starrcade main event World Heavyweight Championship match.

Tony Schiavone: And that is definitely a humongous match going into Starrcade, and a match you are not going to want to miss! It goes down next week, but now, we have another match coming right up!

“Tanz-Fieber”, better known as “Dance Fever” hits, bringing out ‘Das Wunderkid’ Alex Wright… to crickets. Wright doesn’t care though, as he comes out onto the entrance stage with his purple trunks and black leather jacket, dancing away. As Wright starts to make his way down the ramp, Scott Steiner jogs (slowly) out from the back, and drills Wright across the back of the head with the lead pipe! Wright collapses to the metallic-steel ramp, and Steiner drops his pipe as he instead picks up Wright and carries him down the ramp and to the ring. Once Steiner gets to ringside, he rams Wright’s spine off the steel ring post twice, before letting Wright slide off Steiner’s shoulder and chest and to his feet, although Steiner is holding him up. Steiner then wraps his arms around Wright’s chest and throws him over his shoulder with an overhead belly-to-belly suplex on the mats! Wright is out of it, and the crowd is torn with cheers and jeers for Steiner. Big Poppa Pump then rolls Wright into the ring, and he follows suit. Referee Billy Silverman calls for the bell…

Match Three
Alex Wright (w/concussion & an ass kicking) vs. Scott Steiner (w/ ‘roid rage)
Singles Match

…and slides into position to make the ensuing pin count that Steiner makes on Wright. It’s an easy 1-2-3, and Steiner wins.

Result: Scott Steiner def. Alex Wright in 0:04

Steiner immediately gets up to his feet, and the production team doesn’t even bother to play his music. Silverman tries to raise Steiner’s arm in victory, and Freakzilla flattens Silverman with a nasty lariat!

Scott Steiner + Sting = Ratings

Steiner walks over to a quivering stagehand at ringside, and demands a microphone. The stagehand takes several steps away from Steiner and then tosses him a mic, too afraid he’ll get an ass kicking. Good call, kid. Steiner marches into the center of the ring, and mic in hand, starts to cut a promo of beefy goodness that one can only get from Scott Steiner.

Scott Steiner: STING~! I’m sick and frickin’ tired of all your bull*shit*! You been here in DC all night, and you been screwin’ with me left and right. That crap is stoppin’ right now! You got in the way of Scott Steiner scorin’ with his number one freak, Midajah. You trashed my damn locker room. You been playin’ stupid little “mind games” with me, and I’m sick of your crap! I want you to take a few seconds of your time away from being a little emo bitch ass, and come out to this ring and face me like a real man! Stop cryin’ about the fact that you can’t ever beat the nWo, stop bein’ a little mind-game-playin’ *faggot*, and get your poetry readin’, wrist cuttin’, emo raggedy ass out here!

The crowd both cheers and jeers for Steiner, although the crowd definitely wants the Stinger to come out to the ring. Moments go by, and no Sting.

Scott Steiner: In case you didn’t know, Stinger, but we’re on a frickin’ time schedule here! We only get two hours of TV, and there’s more bitches to come on after me! So how about you quit your cryin’ an… what the hell is this *shit*!?

Steiner is confused as shit, and so is the crowd, because the lights cut out. The crowd is buzzing and many people start to try and ignite their lighters… faggots.

Scott Steiner: STING! I know this is you, you stupid piece of crap! Knock this crap out and come out here!

The lights come back on Steiner looks a bit freaked out because 4 stuffed vultures are on the ring, each one placed on top of a top turnbuckle, placed so they’re staring right in Steiner’s direction. After a few seconds, Steiner reclaims his cool, and walks over to one of the vultures and picks it up.

Scott Steiner: This is what you send me, Sting? You put four frickin’ vultures in the ring? Not even real ones, but stuffed frickin’ animals!? I know you’re a the type of little bitch who needs to cradle a stuffed animal to sleep Sting, but I have my freaks to press up against me at night. I don’t need your kiddy BS!

Steiner pauses, and the main lights cut off yet again! However, several of the minor spotlights remain on, and they focus on the Nitro Tron. The screen is black, but after several seconds, a video starts to play. It’s a direct clip from Mayhem, and it’s Sting picking Scott Steiner up into the air, and power bombing him off the top of the Super Cage, through the roof of the second cell, and crashing through a wooden table place inside the second cage. Steiner can be seen looking incredibly pissed in the ring, while the video on the Nitro Tron ends, only to cut to a pitch black room. After a few seconds, lights start to flicker in the room, and the painted face of Sting appears in the room!

Sting: Here I am, Scott Steiner. You’ve come looking, but you looked in all the wrong places. The Crow has been watching you, noticing your every foot step. You have just always failed to look. You fix your eyes on the seen, the horizontal movements of the people next to you, but never do you look up and down, your scenery. I’ve been there, Scott. But now, I am right here, and I have a message for you.

The camera focuses in on Scott Steiner and how perplexed he looks while Sting takes a brief pause.

Sting: Scott, you’re not the only man who is angry that he lost the Super Cage match at Mayhem. I wanted that victory as much as you did, albeit for separate reasons. The Super Cage was my platform, my stepping stone to defeating the New World Order. I failed in my trials and tribulations, but that’s the roll of the dice, Steiner. No matter the outcome, life goes on, and so does the Crow. The Crow will fly on. Scott Steiner, I know my crusade, I know the path that I must take. The crusade against the New World Order is what keeps the Stinger alive inside, it’s what fuels the Crow’s life and desire. But no matter what the road looks like, there are alternative roads that can be taken, different paths that must be taken. You’re my alternative route, Steiner.

Sting pauses, while Steiner looks rather confused, yet intrigued.

Sting: Steiner, I must go to you. I must meet you head-on, for if I don’t, here you will always be, nipping at my heels, seeking revenge that you feel you must obtain to make up for your own failures. I must face you, I must defeat you, in order to continue my crusade. To defeat the New World Order, I must first dispose of you, for I can never finish off the nWo if I have a man in my way of carrying my cross. You’re my road block that leads to my alternative route, but yet, you’re that different path. I know where I must go, and Steiner, out paths intertwine… at Starrcade. You want the limelight, Scott, you want the materialistic prize of a World Heavyweight Championship. You can have your prize, Scott, but in order for you to feel ready to take it, our battle must come first. You can have your battle, and I will have my detour of my crusade. At Starrcade, you are mine, and I am yours. The Crow will sit in a makeshift nest for you, but after Starrcade, the Crow will fly on. But for now, Scott, I tell you one final thing. Turn around.

All the lights turn back on, and the crowd explodes into cheers as Steiner turns around, and Sting is standing face-to-face with Scott Steiner, a black baseball bat in hand! Steiner looks rather freaked by Sting’s presence after the promo, and before he can even make an attempt at fight Sting, the Stinger drills Steiner across the chest with the baseball bat! The crowd cheers, and Steiner crashes to the canvas as the (purposely-weakened and gimmicked) bat shatters over Steiner’s torso. Sting takes a step over the KO’ed Steiner, holding what remains of his broken bat, the handle now facing Steiner’s throat. With a cold, emotionless face, the Stinger simply stares down Steiner until the camera cuts to the commentary table.

Tony Schiavone: Oh my goodness, Professor! Sting and Scott Steiner are going to wrestle at Starrcade, and the Stinger has laid out Scott Steiner in a memorable moment, here on Wednesday Nitro!

Mike Tenay: This match-up between Scott Steiner and Sting was inevitable for both men. Scott Steiner needs to try and get revenge on Sting from what happened between the two at Mayhem in the Super Cage, and he won’t let-up until he gets Sting, and Sting knows it! No matter how badly Sting wants to continue his quest against the New World Order, he can’t until Scott Steiner is out of his sight. At Starrcade, these two men have to wrestle against each other.

Tony Schiavone: And Sting is a man that man people have never been able to understand, but this is a side of Sting that we have never seen before. He has become so obsessed with his crusade against the New World Order, Professor.

Mike Tenay: Yes, well hopefully Sting can bear his cross and defeat the New World Order… for all of our sakes.

Tony Schiavone: Well Stinger will have help along the way, Professor, and one of those men who WCW can count on to help in the war against the New World Order is ‘The Nature Boy’ Ric Flair! And folks, coming up next, he is in your main event! Stay tuned because right after this commercial break, it’s Ric Flair versus Curt Hennig in the main event!

Before the break, we get a (very, very) quick segment.

WOO~! They’re Walking~!

Really… no lie. That’s all this segment is. It’s a split screen; on the left side of the screen walks ‘The Perfect One’ Curt Hennig, looking cocky and confident as he chews on a piece of gum. On the right side are ‘The Nature Boy’ Ric Flair and ‘The Enforcer’ Arn Anderson, both men looking serene and serious as they walk down the corridor towards the entrance curtain.


When Wednesday Nitro returns, “Also Sprach Zarathustra” hits, and the crowd cheers like a crowd can only cheer for ‘The Nature Boy’ Ric Flair. Flair and Double A march out from the back after a few seconds, Flair sporting the trademark half-smile half-smirk of his, while Double A looks serene and serious still. Flair slowly spins in a circle once, showing off his blue, red, and white sequin robe before the two best friends make their way down the entrance ramp and to the ring. Once the two get into the ring, Flair starts to disrobe while “New World Order” hits, brining out ‘The Perfect One’ Curt Hennig to jeers from the crowd. Hennig has the trademark cocky smirk of his as he trots down the entrance ramp, sporting an nWo tee over his black & white singlet. Once Hennig gets to the bottom of the ramp, he spits out his gum into the air before swatting it out of sight with his hand. Hennig then enters the ring, takes off his shirt, and immediately prepares for battle as referee Charles Robinson calls for the opening bell.

Main Event
Curt Hennig vs. Ric Flair (w/Arn Anderson)
Singles Match

Flair and Hennig have a solid old school style match, starting with tie-ups and head locks, and then simple chain wrestling. Flair and Hennig incorporate hip tosses and arm drags into the match, and Flair ends up taking Hennig to school with a plethora upon plethora of knife edge chops, reddening up what can be seen of Hennig’s chest. Flair makes the crowd hot as can be with his offense, which continues on for a minute or so until he tries to go up top, and Hennig ends up shoving Flair off the top turnbuckle to the canvas.

Hennig goes to town on Flair, working him over with an all-around approach, stomping and punching away on Flair while he’s on the canvas, softening him up in the corners of the ring, and slamming & suplexing Flair to the canvas. Hennig score multiple near falls in the process, the crowd cheering in delight with each kick out by Flair. However, Flair ends up turning the tides with a cheeky thumb to the eye to block a Hennig Plex. After some quick trademark moves by Flair, Curt Hennig falls victim to the Figure Four Leg Lock of Flair’s. Hennig, trapped in the center of the ring, tries to fight off the pain of the hold. However, despite refusing to submit for well over ten seconds, Hennig finally does, tapping out.

Result: Ric Flair def. Curt Hennig at 8:41

“Also Sprach Zarathustra” hits again, and Flair pulls himself up to his feet, strutting around the ring and “WOO”-ing like crazy. Arn Anderson and Flair lock eyes, and the two nod at one another.

The Big Finish

As the theme continues to play, Arn Anderson walks around the ring and receives a microphone from a stagehand. Double A then enters the ring, and hands Flair the mic, Slick Ric still going crazy in the ring.

Ric Flair: WOO! WOO! WOOOOO~!

Flair continues “Woo” while strutting around the ring, losing all of his senility.

Ric Flair: I’ve got a message for a select few people in the back, and IT GOES LIKE THIS! For the past few months, the New World Order has done NOTHING, NOTHING but try and FIRE ME! RIC, WOO, FLAIR! Guys like HULK HOGAN, you’ve been tryin’ ta’ fire the Naitcha’ Boy for MONTHS, and I HAVE HAD IT, WITH THE BULL*SHIT*!

The crowd cheers as Flair’s face is turning bright red from yelling and screaming. Okay, you in front of the screen, watch Flair for his right hand to clutch his left arm and his chest.

Ric Flair: Well nWo… NEWS FLASH~! Ric Flair ain’t, WOO, goin’ anywhere! Not yet! HULK HOGAN! When the Naitcha’ Boy leaves WCW, it’ll be on HIS TERMS! But if somehow, somehow the New World Order can succeed and force Ric Flair into retirement, then the Naitcha’ Boy wants ONE MAN, and only ONE, WOO, MAN, to do the job! HULK HOGAN! Get ‘yer ass out here, right, WOO, NOW!

The crowd cheers, as Flair paces around the ring, waiting for Hogan.

New NewNew
New New

Ask and you shall receive, and the crowd bursts into boos (and cheers) as The Immortal, ‘Hollywood’ Hulk Hogan struts out from the back, sporting the nWo tank top, black jeans, metallic black Hollywood weight lifting belt, black bandana, black shades, and ridiculous mustache and beard that is artificially dyed. Hogan has a mic in his hand as he marches right down the ramp and to the ring, a cocky smirk on his face. Hogan enters the ring, and he and Flair stare one another down heatedly right away. The two stare each other down before Flair walks right into Hogan’s face.

Ric Flair: WOO~!

The crowd gives out a loud “Woo” in return, and Hogan shows no signs of emotion as Flair takes a few steps back.

Ric Flair: Hogan, I have a question that I am gonna ask you. Hollywood, do you wanna retire, WOO, RIC FLAIR!?

The crowd boos while the two men stare one another down.

Hulk Hogan: You wanna know if Hollywood Hogan wants to retire Ric Flair? Well lemme tell ya’ somethin’, brother, there is NOTHIN’ that I’d like to do more, than retire Ric Flair’s old, washed up ass!

The crowd boos again while Flair surprisingly smirks at Hogan.

Hulk Hogan: Ric Flair, you don’t have “it” anymore, jack! You keep trying to be immortal, but all you’re doin’ is bringing yourself down, dude! There’s only one immortal, Flair, and you’re lookin’ at him, brother! I’m the immortal legend in this industry, and it’s time Ric Flair stops trying to be Father Time and go back to the nursing home he belongs in!

The crowd boos Hogan as the two men stare one another down for a few seconds.

Ric Flair: Hogan, I’m damn glad that’s what you wanna do to Ric Flair, because SO DO I! I want to meet you in the ring Hogan, and I want to RETIRE YOUR ASS!

The crowd bursts into cheers as Hogan looks a little bit uncomfortable now. Flair takes a deep breath, and silence reigns supreme for several moments. When Flair speaks again, all the loud intensity is gone, filled instead with a soft whisper.

Ric Flair: …But Hulk, I want to know something. What are you going do about it?

Hogan looks at Flair, confused. He’s not understanding Ric.

Ric Flair: You heard me, Hulkster. What are you going to do? What are you going to do, what are you willing to do, to retire Ric Flair?

Hogan and Flair stare one another down for a few seconds, as Hogan thinks up of a response. It comes in just one word.

Hulk Hogan: Anything.

Ric Flair: ANY-WOO-THING!?

Hulk Hogan: I would do anything to retire your ass, brother!


Hogan looks at Flair, confused again, but Flair keeps on going with his tirade.


Flair marches around the ring, while Hogan looks at Ric like he’s gone wacko. Flair keeps strutting around the ring until he gets right up into Hogan’s face.


The crowd explodes into cheers at Flair’s challenge for Starrcade. However, Hogan doesn’t respond, contemplating the match heavily. Knowing he’ll have to persuade him, Flair speaks again, but in a whisper again.

Ric Flair: C’mon, Hulk, be a man. Man up, Hogan, and show the world who’s immortal. Ric Flair can’t hold a candle to the legacy of Hulk Hogan’s, so why don’t you prove it, Hulk. Live a little, put it all on the line. If you somehow lose to me, you retire, but Hogan, we know the records. You’ve retired me before, but I’m still here. Finish what you started!

Hogan still looks uncertain, not knowing if he wants to put his own career on the line just to try and retire Ric Flair. The two men stare one another down, Hogan still contemplating.


The crowd breaks out into a loud mixed response as ‘Big Sexy’ Kevin Nash marches out from the back in jeans and a Wolfpack t-shirt. Nash walks right down the ramp, a mic dangling in his right hand as the three men all stare one another down. Arn Anderson is still in the ring, but he’s just kind of slinking away off camera, letting the three men have the limelight. Nash gets to the ring, walks up the steps and climbs over the top rope and into the ring. The three men all stare one another down before Nash brings the mic up to his mouth and starts to speak.

Kevin Nash: Now I see what’s going down here between you two fossils, and truth be told, I want in on it!

The crowd cheers as the three men continue to stare each other down.

Kevin Nash: Hogan, I know you, man. And I know that despite the fact that you want to retire Ric Flair for good, that is not what you want the most. You’re materialistic, Hulk. You’re a self-serving egomaniac, and what you want, is gold. Hollywood, you want the very same thing I want the most… the WCW World Heavyweight Championship.

A few cheers from the crowd, but very few. Most of the crowd is too busy listening to Nash to respond.

Kevin Nash: Hulk, you don’t care about your career in World Championship Wrestling. You want to see WCW die. Hell, I want to see WCW die! But Hulk, you have one thing that Ric and I don’t have, a safe haven. The world knows that up north, Vinnie Mac would love nothing more than to have his precious Hulkamania. If you lose this match to Flair at Starrcade, you lose nothing. What makes you think, Hollywood, is what’s still in it for you. So Hulkster, Naitch, this how Big Sexy brings himself into this little equation here. I bring you two boys, or should I say, senior citizens, the incentive of the World Heavyweight Championship. So let’s throw out Ric Flair’s challenge, and Kevin Nash will throw in a new one.

Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair remain silent while Kevin Nash continues on.

Kevin Nash: Ric Flair, retiring you would do all of professional wrestling a service. There would be people lining up from here to the Georgia Dome to try and retire you, Flair. Hulk here, he’s one big egomaniac, but NO ONE can match up to you Flair. You’re the biggest ego standing in this ring; your ego’s even bigger than ole’ Arn’s beer-belly over there. Hi, Arn.

Nash gives Arn a cheeky grin, while Double A fumes. To the uninformed folk, that’s a bit of a reference to a well-known nWo-skit where they parodied the Horseman, Nash parodying Arn… Nash took some of his comments way too far. Shooty~!

Kevin Nash: Slick Ric, here’s the thing. Hulk Hogan, he’d like to retire you. But me, I would LOVE to retire you. Winning back the WCW World Heavyweight Title is the only thing higher on my “to-do” list. You, you’ll gladly put your career on the line, and hey, so will I. But Ric and Hulk, like I said, all this talk of personal hatred is just a bunch of BS. We’re all self-serving, cold, calculating, arrogant, egomaniacs, who want one thing, and one thing only… the WCW World Heavyweight Title. So instead of Kevin Nash sitting on his couch with his thumb up his ass while you two wrestle in the epic Starrcade match, Kevin Nash is inserting himself into the fold, and I’m taking home some of the big money that this match will make. So at Starrcade, I challenge Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair to a triple threat match! Winner gets a guaranteed World Heavyweight Title match, and the loser… LOSER RETIRES!

The crowd EXPLODES into cheers and Nash looks at the two men, an incredibly serious look on his face. Flair nods his head and licks his lips while smirking; he’s more than game for this match.

Ric Flair: Kevin Nash! WOO~! You ARE, WOO, ON! WOOOO!

The crowd cheers incredibly loudly, and Nash grins while nodding his head. The two men then turn to Hogan, waiting a reply.

Kevin Nash: You got nothing lose, Hogan. You win, you walk home from Starrcade with a contract that will give you a World Heavyweight Title match at your choosing. You don’t get the victory, but you don’t take the fall, then you get nothing. You’re still in WCW, you get no Title match, but you still take home a piss load of money because a match this big is going to draw better than anything you’ve ever done. And if you lose, then you retire from WCW. You take home the same amount of money, people give you a send off, and you can retire or go have Vinnie Mac bring you in to job to my boy, Hunter. It’s a win-win-win, Hulkster.

Nash nods his head at Hogan, telling Hulk that he’s telling the truth. There’s a long silence, and Hogan finally responds.

Hulk Hogan: Kevin Nash and Ric Flair, all I have to say is, watcha gonna do, brother!? WATCHA GONNA DO, WHEN HULKAMANIA RETIRES ONE OF YOU! BROTHER!

The crowd damn near blows the roof off the MCI Center, and all three men stare each other down, satisfied smirks on their faces.

Tony Schiavone: ARE YOU KIDDING ME!? Hulk Hogan versus Kevin Nash versus Ric Flair at Starrcade!? Winner gets a WCW World Heavyweight Title match and the loser retires!? Professor, that’s the biggest match in the history of professional wrestling!

Mike Tenay: Folks, that is all the time we have for tonight, but WOW! Starrcade just got a lot hotter folks! Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan, and Kevin Nash put their careers on the line at Starrcade! You HAVE to join in next week for the final stop before Starrcade! Be here next Wednesday night, same time, same place, for Wednesday Nitro! For Tony Schiavone, I am Mike Tenay, so long everybody!

Nitro closes with one close-ups of the faces of Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash, and then Ric Flair before the camera zooms out and focuses in on all three men still staring each other down.


Quick Results:
Sean O’Haire def. Mark Jindrak at 6:11

Confirmed Matches for Starrcade:

WCW World Heavyweight Championship: Jeff Jarrett © vs. Booker T

WCW United States Championship: Lance Storm © vs. Mike Awesome (Tables Match)

WCW Tag Team Championship: Young Lions © vs. Natural Born Thrillers (w/Mike Sanders)

WCW Cruiserweight Championship: Shane Helms © vs. Super Crazy

Hulk Hogan vs. Kevin Nash vs. Ric Flair (Loser Retires, Winner Gets WCW World Heavyweight Title Match)

Scott Steiner vs. Sting

Billy Kidman vs. Rey Misterio Jr.

Big ups to Crazian for the banners. That's the final Starrcade card, in terms of the matches that will be added. Misterio/Kidman has an addition for it, but those are the 7 matches. Cal Anderson vs. Curt Hennig was going to be added, but I didn't want to squeeze in another match with limited build-up, and I don't want to write 8 matches in full. I have 2 Starrcade matches done, and I will write another one before I start to write the final Nitro before Starrcade. However, uni classes start back up on Monday, so that means less writing time. Updates will be slower, although I will try and keep them at a solid enough pace. I have returned all my reviews from before, I do believe, so I am good now with that. Hope you enjoyed the show.

Re: WCW 2001- The Trio Ownership

Booker's opening promo was terrific. It may have been a little tough to understand sometimes, but it was realistic as hell and overall very enjoyable to read. Not many times have I really experienced emotion through a promo so vividly, so realisticly, the way I experienced through this opening promo. Just to say how awesome this promo was. Thanks for a piece of art . (you've probably written better ones, but this is the first time i've read one of your shows.)

Crazy gets the kinda squash win against Moore next. Crazy and Helms have a staredown and as things look now, they'll do battle at Starrcade.

Get ready for a weak promo! Lol. I love how you give your own personal opinions sort of throughout the show. Neat little addition. Rey talked really agressively and I actually can't imagine him cutting a promo like that, but that could be because I've never saw any of his WCW work. Anyways, a match between Mysterio and Kidman at Starrcade seems in the works. Should be a terrific match.

Steiner squashes Clarke in a quick match. The promo afterwards was entertaining though. His comment about Sting's wife was spot on. Steiner/Sting at Starrcade? I think so.

Poor Clarke. The nWo as it's being portrayed here reminds me somewhat of gladiators back in the Roman empire. If you lose, you get slaughtered, approved by the emperor. It's probably just me who makes a lame analogy like that though.

Good match next. You managed to implement two feuds into one match (+aftermath). Rey/Kidman took another sadistic twist, after Rey laid out the helpless Tygress with the chair. I'm intrigued with the NBT though. I actually like Jindrak's work() so I'm all in favor of him along with Stamboli going after the Tag Team Champions. Each segment so far seems to be building up for Starrcade, and so is this one with a Tag Team Title match in the works.

Good promo by Nash here. Love the realism with the hesitation of Mean Gene written out. Anyways, Flair/Nash should be some main event and I expect Hogan or nWo interfering in some way, trying to cost Nash the match. By the way, Nash, as well as most of the other stars so far, was totally spot on in terms of charachter, good job.

Good enough match next between Anderson and Awesome. The DQ finish served it's purpose, as nWo didn't lose momentum, and Anderson is still undefeated. I didn't, however, understand the 'save' by Storm, but from what I read in the commentary lines, you're building him up as kinda like a jolly good guy, protecting the WCW values . (After looking at the confirmed Starrcade matches, I understand Storm's interference, as he has a match with Awesome at Starrcade.)

nWo video package. Not much to comment on, just that it had the right length and served the right purpose of course, building up the Starrcade Main Event.

Aha, the main event. Of course this wasn't going to be a beauty of a match, and I love how you always give your personal notes in between diffrent segments, during promos and matches and whatnot, really an original and quite frankly entertaining addition. Anyways, Hulk Hogan, as I predicted, interfered and Nash wins. However, in what was a great aftermath, it ends up with Nash and Flair brawling. Great job booking Hogan here, manipulating Flair and Nash into fighting each other after the match. I loved it.

Overall: well, I've read a lot of shows over past two years(almost) and I must say this has to be one of the best I've read. Every segment was good at worst and the last segment was a great way to end the show. Now I know you don't give a shit probably about these kinds of reviews, reviews that hardly criticize that is, but I really had trouble finding flaws in this show. Anyways, good job and keep the good shit coming.

EDIT: crap, the next show has just been posted.
