World Championship Wrestling- Monday Nitro


Woo-hoo, another Monday Nitro! The typical Nitro video and theme music plays, followed by pyro, and then the cameras go straight to the commentators for introductions.

Tony Schiavone: Hello ladies and gentleman and welcome to Monday Nitro! I am proud to be here calling the action for all of you fans once again, as is my broadcast friend and partner, “The Professor” Mike Tenay!

Mike Tenay: It is always an honor to be announcing for World Championship Wrestling with you, Tony.

Schiavone: I agree whole heartedly, Mike. But Mike, lets get rolling onto tonight’s action! It is going to be an action-packed night again with a huge main event in store for you because it will be “Big Poppa Pump” Scott Steiner going one-on-one with Diamond Dallas Page!

Tenay: Last week on Nitro, Scott Steiner cost DDP the chance at winning the WCW World Heavyweight Championship, so you can be sure that Page is going to be looking to gain some revenge tonight by beating Scott Steiner!

Schiavone: Indeed he will, Professor. But that isn’t all! The remaining two quarterfinal matches in the United States Title Tournament will take place as Chris Kanyon fights Hugh Morris and Konnan does battle with The Wall!

Tenay: Well it looks like we can’t hype tonight anymore, Tony, because the action is about to get under way right now with Shannon Moore taking on Evan Karagias!

Evan Karagias vs. Shannon Moore

Shannon Moore took on another of his former 3 Count band mates, looking to defeat Karagias after failing to beat Helms last week. The two men put on an average cruiserweight match, with the crowd not caring about the match or who won in the slightest. Not even the commentators cared about this match, as Tony and Tenay were busy hyping up the US Title Tournament, and what took place at the end of Nitro last week between Steiner, Booker T, and DDP. The two men, who you know, were actually having match, went back and forth for five minutes, exchanging a couple of nice spots throughout the match until Shannon Moore picked up the victory with a roll-up after nailing a direct kick to the groin. Afterwards, Karagias attacked his former 3 Count friend, hitting some right hands before throwing him from ringside.

Star Rating: * (55, 35, 75)

Schiavone: Shannon Moore picks up a win here over Evan Karagais, but Professor, you have to question the tactics used by Moore to obtain victory here tonight.

Tenay: Well Tony, Shannon Moore is just a man who wants to prove himself in WCW, and if he wins his matches, then he’ll get a chance to be a star. It is all about stardom for Shannon, and by defeating Evan Karagais here tonight, he is one step closer to stardom.

Schiavone: Well that is certainly debatable, but right now we’re going to send you backstage where “Mean” Gene Okerlund is standing with “Big Poppa Pump” Scott Steiner!

The Genetic Freak Wants His Gold Back

Gene Okerlund: Thanks guys. Alright Scott, let’s get right to it. Why did you come out and ruin the main event last week by attacking Booker T and Diamond Dallas Page?

Scott Steiner: Mean Gene, you little twerp, why the hell do you think I went out there and made Booker T and DDP may bitches? Because I can! I am Big Poppa Pump, and Big Poppa Pump wants the WCW World Heavyweight Championship back around his luscious waist. All of my freaks want to see me holding the WCW World Heavyweight Championship, not some bitch like DDP, or some dumb “sucka” like Booker T!

Okerlund: Well, alright then, Scott Steiner wants back the WCW World Heavyweight Championship!

S. Steiner: You’re damn right I do, Mean Gene! I was the WCW World Heavyweight Champion for four God damn months, Gene, FOUR! I was unstoppable! I took out Sting! I took out Goldberg! I took out Kevin Nash! I took out Sid Vicious! I’ve taken out the legends of this company, and its big time stars. Page, if you think you can stop the Big Bad Booty Daddy, try me! I will kick your ass! Booker T, I want back my belt you stole from me! I want it! Slamboree, Booker T, face me one-on-one so I can win back my WCW World Heavyweight Championship! Booker T, you may be riding pretty damn high up in the clouds, but just so you know, your time is running out. It is just about my time again! It is about time for Scott Steiner to be the WCW World Heavyweight Championship! Big Poppa Pump! Big Bad Booty Daddy! Genetic Freak! I want my Title back! Anyone who wants to wants to try and get in my damn way is just going to experiencing one big ass whooping, courteous of Big Poppa Pump, Scott Steiner! Now get out of my damn way Gene, or I’ll freakin’ break you in half!

Scott Steiner storms away from the interview area, as does Midajah, who was standing by Steiner the whole time.

Segment Rating: 75%

Schiavone: Those are some strong words from Scott Steiner, Professor!

Tenay: I think that may be an understatement, Tony! Big Poppa Pump is a monster, and he will do anything and destroy anyone to get back the WCW World Heavyweight Championship.

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*

Chris Kanyon vs. Hugh Morris- United States Title Tournament Quarterfinal

The third US Title Quarterfinal match-up is next, and the two men in the ring put on a mediocre match-up that got over alright with the fans. Morris dominated early in the match, but Kanyon ended up gaining control with a low blow and rake of the eyes. Kanyon almost had the match won with a Flatliner attempt, but the big man fought back. Kanyon kept trying to put Morris away, but Hugh always fought back, and finally got some momentum of his own after reversing a DDT into a northern lights suplex. From there, Morris gathered some momentum before finishing Kanyon off with his No Laughing Matter Moonsault to advance to the semi-finals.

Hugh Morris def. Chris Kanyon at 7:43
Star Rating: * (67, 66, 68)

Schiavone: What a great victory for Hugh Morris! Hugh fought off all of Kanyon’s attempts, both cheap and clean, to put him away. Morris showed great resiliency for a man his size, and earned that victory tonight!

Tenay: Well that’s the thing, Tony, Hugh Morris is not your average big man. He’s very resilient, as well as agile in the ring. Not many men his size can pull off that spectacular moonsault that he does, and I think Hugh has all of the necessary tools to win the whole tournament. I am definitely expecting to see him in the finals at Slamboree against Lance Storm.

Schiavone: You can’t count out Konnan or The Wall though, who will meet in the ring later on tonight to find out who will face Morris next week in the semi-final! But moving along, it is now time for KroniK to face off against the young cruiserweight team of Air Raid!

Air Raid vs. KroniK

For those of you who thought that AJ Styles would pull off a huge upset for his team and beat KroniK… think again. Brian Adams and Bryan Clarke totally manhandle the young cruiserweight team from the opening bell, using their superior size advantage over the two men. After some stiff brawling from KroniK, Adams gave Paris a nasty-looking swinging sidewalk slam, and Clarke gave Styles a Meltdown to score a double pin fall. After the match, KroniK decided to leave one last mark on Air Raid, hitting both men with their signature double team move, High Times.

KroniK def. Air Raid at 1:17 (Double pin)
Star Rating: DUD (66, 51, 81)

Schiavone: Wow! KroniK just manhandled Air Raid! Air Paris and AJ Styles didn’t even stand a chance against Brian Adams and Bryan Clarke tonight!

Tenay: These guys are former WCW Tag Team Champions, and they showed tonight why they have been a feared tag team in WCW for a while now. If I were Chuck Palumbo and Sean O’Haire, I’d be watching my backs for KroniK!

Gaining Some Revenge

The cameras cut backstage where Jim Duggan is walking around, saying ‘hi’ to some of the passing wrestlers. Duggan turns a corner, and is immediately jumped by Rick Steiner! The Dog Faced Gremlin tackles Duggan to the ground and starts laying into him with a flurry of punches to the face. Head of Security Doug Dillinger and his crew of security are right there to break it up, but that doesn’t mean Steiner doesn’t try to fight them off. The large pile of security finally is able to restrain Rick Steiner, while some of the lower card face wrestlers tend to Jim Duggan. While security escorts Steiner, he can be heard yelling…

Rick Steiner: Jim Duggan, your ass is grass! You screwed me last week, and now I am gonna’ kick you fucking (bleeped) ass!

*COMMERICAL BREAK*

Chuck Palumbo & Sean O’Haire © vs. Crowbar & David Flair (w/Daffney)- Non-Title

Palumbo and O’Haire have their first match back with WCW, and they certainly impress the crowd by making quick and easy work of David Flair and Crowbar, not that it should surprise anyone they annihilated the basic jobber team. The match was basically tornado style the whole time as the basic tag format never came into play. After taking out Crowbar and Flair with brawling and a couple of slams, Palumbo took out Crowbar and Flair both with Jungle Kicks before O’Haire finished the match off by pinning Flair after hitting a Seanton Bomb.

Palumbo & O’Haire def. Flair & Crowbar at 1:47 (O’Haire pins Flair)
Star Rating: DUD (68, 64, 72)

Tenay: Well it looks like KroniK isn’t the only team looking impressive tonight because our Tag Team Champions dominated just as much as KroniK!

Schiavone: That’s right, Professor! Chuck Palumbo and Sean O’Haire certainly did a number on David Flair and Crowbar in this match, proving why they are the WCW Tag Team Champions! Th- wait, wait just a minute! That is the music of Ric Flair! Ric Flair is coming out onto stage. Ladies and gentleman, don’t go away because it looks like we’re going to hear from the legend, “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair!

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*

The Initial Confrontation

Right before break, “Sprach Zarathustra” did indeed hit the sound system, and ‘The Nature Boy’ Ric Flair walked out from the curtain and down the entrance ramp during the commercial break. During the break, Flair simply did his struts and played to the crowd with his signature “WOOO”. However, once the break ended, the cameras turn back on to see Ric Flair standing in the ring in his Armani suit, a slight grin on his face.

Ric Flair: WOOO!

The crowd in returns chants ”WOOO” collectively.

Flair: You know, I am not going to waste much of your guy’s time because I know you all want to see some wrestling! So I will get right to the point, and say what I gotta say. Last week, I said some things that I have received some flak for over the last week. Last week on Nitro, I said that all of you fans made The Nature Boy. Last week on Nitro, I said that all of you made Ric Flair. But I was touted as a liar for that.

The fans boo the men and women who called Flair a liar.

Flair: Yeah, my thoughts exactly. I was told all last week that ‘Ric Flair doesn’t care about the fans’. This whole past week people have told me that ‘I’m the dirtiest player in the game, and I’ll screw over anyone to get to the top, whether I screw over my opponent, the company, my family, or each and every one of the fans’. And you know what, the men and women who called me a liar may just be right; I am the dirtiest player in the game! I’m ‘The Nature Boy’ Ric Flair, and I will do what it takes to win. But that does not mean I don’t give a damn about the fans! That does not mean that all of you have not made Ric Flair, Ric Flair! What I said last week was the one hundred percent truth!

The fans cheer The Nature Boy, and a small “Flair, Flair” chant breaks out.

Flair: Everything I said last week was true. If it wasn’t for the fans, I wouldn’t be here today. Even though you all booed me for most of my near 30 years in this business, you all still respected Ric Flair, and you all still made Ric Flair the biggest wrestling star in the world!

The crowd once again bursts out into cheers for The Nature Boy.

Flair: But that isn’t the only thing I said last week that was true. Last week, I said I was going to help make WCW the number one promotion in the world once again. And you can be damn sure I meant that! My whole entire life has been made what it is because of WCW and the National Wrestling Alliance. My life is what it is today because of WCW and the NWA, and I am the legend that I am today because I wrestled for such prestigious companies like the NWA and right here in WCW. World Championship Wrestling is one hell of a promotion, filled with prestige and tradition. And I have been a pioneer for WCW and the NWA for about 27 years, and this is a company that I love with all of my heart! So you can guarantee that I am not going to turn my back on this company! I will not screw over WCW! I will not screw over my family or you fans! I will not stab WCW in the back!

Ric Flair looks to be getting pretty into his promo, but he is suddenly interrupted by “Chosen One”… Jeff Jarrett walks out onto the stage holding a microphone! Jarrett is sporting jeans and his ‘Chosen One’ T-Shirt, but no guitar on him tonight. He is being heavily booed, especially for interrupting Ric Flair. Jarrett stares at Ric, rolls his eyes, and then slowly applauds before speaking.

Jeff Jarrett: Ladies and gentleman, I present to you, ‘The Nature Boy’ Ric Flair- the biggest two-faced son of a bitch WCW has ever seen!

Jarrett gets mega-heel heat for the big insult to Ric Flair.

Jarrett: Ric, stop your damn lying. Everyone knows that what you said last week and tonight has been lies. You don’t give a damn about this company! You could care less about World Championship Wrestling! You are here to try and prove that you are still ‘the big thing’ in professional wrestling, but we all really know you’ve been past your prime since 1991! Ric, you’re the dirtiest player in the game. You will screw over anyone and anything to get to the top and stay there.

Jarrett is cut off by more boos from the crowd.

Jarrett: You all can boo all you want, but guess what slap nuts? It’s the damn truth! I would know because I have been a victim of Ric Flair! I was used by The Nature Boy for Flair to get back in the spotlight, ain’t that right Ric?

Flair is silent, as is the crowd. Flair just simply glares at Jarrett.

Jarrett: That’s right, you have nothing to say because you know I am right. Let’s take a stroll down memory lane, shall we Ric? Just this year, you and I were teaming up together. You teamed up with me, the biggest star in WCW, to get back in the spotlight. You got recognition once again by being my partner. After getting the entire spotlight, what did you do then Ric? Oh yeah, that’s right, you abandoned me!

Jarrett is booed more, while Flair just continues to glare at Jeff.

Jarrett: Uh huh, you abandoned me once you got back into the spotlight, going and having a ‘respect’ match with your new good buddy Sting. Last week your praise Sting for being a freaking god of WCW. But you know what else you did last week, Ric? You know what you did that really pissed me off? You praised crap like Booker T, Rey Misterio Jr., and Konnan as the real talent in WCW. But you know what, Nature Boy? You forgot the best talent in WCW; me! Jeff Jarrett!

Jarrett gets booed even more by the crowd while Flair just glares at Jarrett even more, biting on his lip to stay silent.

Jarrett: C’mon, Ric, aren’t ya’ gonna say something? Aren’t ya’ gonna verbally kick my ass? Oh wait, no, you’re not going to. And you know why? Because you know everything I have said is the truth! You’re pathetic, Ric Flair! You’re an old has-been who needs to realize his time is up, and that you’re standing in my ring! Ric, it is time for you to realize you’re not the Nature Boy anymore. You are no boy. Hell, you belong in a retirem-

Jarrett is finally cut off by Ric Flair.

Flair: WOOO! WOOO! WOOO! Jeff Jarrett, WOOO! Jeff, shut the- WOOO- hell up!

The crowd breaks out into cheers and chants of “Flair, Flair”. Flair is fired up now, taking off his Armani coat, and loosening up his tie.

Flair: Jeff, you want to come out here and interrupt my time!? My time!? You want to come out here and accuse me of lying, Jeff? You know what I have to say to that? WOOO! That’s what I have to say! I don’t need you to help me get the spotlight because I’ve been the man obtaining the spotlight for almost 30 years now! I’ve worked my ass off to get my spot Jeff, not running around and breaking guitars over people’s heads! I earned my spot Jeff Jarrett, I God damn earned it!

Jarrett: You never earned your spotlight, Ric! You’ve always been mooching off of others to get that top spot! You’ve cheated your way to the top, and used and screwed others your whole career! The Four Horseman and Arn Anderson! Sting! Ricky Steamboat! Me! The list goes on, and on, Ric. I am so sick and tired of you coming out here and talking about being a legend because all you are is an overrated piece of crap who ‘made it big’ by ripping off of other talent. You’re a piece of crap, Ric, and although these people think you’re a legend, I know the truth! I know you have no real legacy! And it is time that it is exposed to the entire wrestling world that you’re a joke! I’d watch my back if I was you, Ric, because you never know who is going to break a guitar over your head.

“Chosen One” hits, and Jarrett slowly walks backwards to the curtain, staring down Flair the whole time. Flair just glares at Jarrett, pissed off at the words of Jeff.

Segment Rating: 93%

Schiavone: Does Jeff Jarrett have any respect for anyone!? Ric Flair is a legend in this business, how dare he insult Ric Flair’s legacy!?

Tenay: Because he think he’s God’s gift to this Earth! Jeff Jarrett was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, and because of that, he thinks he is the ruler of the world.

Schiavone: Well the kid with the silver spoon in his mouth just made some nasty comments that have definitely infuriated one Ric Flair! Jeff Jarrett better watch himself instead of Flair watching Flair because The Chosen One has angered a legend in this business.

Tenay: That’s for sure, Tony. Jeff Jarrett made low ball comments at Ric Flair that were disrespectful, but I am sure he will get his.

Schiavone: I certainly hope so, but we are going to have to take a commercial break, but fans, do not worry because coming up next, is the main event! It will be Big Poppa Pump Scott Steiner vs. Diamond Dallas Page! Don’t go away!

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*

Feel The Bang!

The cameras cut backstage as Nitro returns from break, where Diamond Dallas Page is walking towards the ring area, when he is quickly approached by ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund, who is running up to Page.

Gene Okerlund: Diamond, Diamond, wait just one moment!

DDP stops while Okerlund catches up to him.

Okerlund: Thank you Diamond, I just want to ask one quick question before your match with Scott Steiner. What are your thoughts on the match?

Diamond Dallas Page: You want my thoughts, Mean Gene? Here is what I gotta say about me facing Steiner. Big Poppa Pump, you want to interfere in my matches and cost me my chance at being the WCW World Heavyweight Champion!? You want to screw with DDP!? Well then, fine! You want the WCW World Heavyweight Championship too, so tonight, let’s settle this. You and me, and the winner can get the chance to face Booker T for the gold. How does that sound?

Page walks out of the sight of the camera, but returns moments later.

Page: Oh, and Steiner, get ready... to feel, THE BANG!

Page once again walks out of camera sight as the music of Scott Steiner can be heard in the background.

Okerlund: Well ladies and gentleman, it is time for the main event, so Mike, Tony, have fun calling this one!

Segment Rating: 86%

Diamond Dallas Page vs. Scott Steiner (w/Midajah)

DDP gets another main event match on Nitro, and again he doesn’t put on that well of a match, but hey, he was facing Scott Steiner! The two men battled for seven minutes, and the match saw Steiner dominate most of the match after DDP got an early advantage to start things off. Steiner focused on the neck and upper back of DDP, hitting some vicious forearms to the back of the neck, as well as hitting some nasty-looking belly-to-belly suplexes. Steiner almost got the victory late in the match after going for a second rope fall away slam, but DDP was able to shove him off the second rope to the ring canvas and hit a flying elbow drop for a near three count. Page then gained momentum and almost hit the Diamond Cutter for the victory, but Steiner hit a low blow and grabbed his lead pipe while Midajah distracted referee Randy Anderson. With Anderson distracted, Steiner bashed the pipe over the back of DDP’s head, seemingly knocking him out. From there, Steiner locked in the Steiner Recliner and ‘choked out’ DDP to gain the victory.

Scott Steiner celebrated in the ring with Midajah after the match, laying the boots to Steiner, but Booker T came running down to save Diamond Dallas Page from Steiner. Booker T came in swinging his WCW World Heavyweight Title Belt, chasing Scott Steiner and Midajah from the ring. Booker helped DDP to his feet, but Page shoved Booker T away! Page pointed at the World Heavyweight Title Belt and then Booker T, causing Booker T raise the title belt high into the air between the two men, with Steiner glaring at both men as Nitro comes to a close.

Scott Steiner def. Diamond Dallas Page at 7:37

Arrow Re: WCW 2001- The Trio Ownership

As I mentioned with the last edition of Nitro I really appreciate your honesty in saying that some of the matches are rubbish. But in this show none of the matches were very entertaining, and I wouldn't watch this product on tv. Is WCW gonna get any better?
I do like the whole situation with Booker, DDP and Steiner though and I liked the Jarrett/Flair segment which could lead to a possible fued?
Is Sting going to make a return to Nitro?
All in all however your product is still excellent and I enjoying reading it greatly.

WCW Monday Nitro Preview- May 21, 2001


We are just a mere six days away from the World Championship Wrestling return to Pay Per View, when WCW present’s Slamboree! But before WCW can host Slamboree, it must first have another action-packed Monday Nitro at 8PM Eastern Standard Time! Join ‘The Voice of WCW’ Tony Schiavone and ‘The Professor’ Mike Tenay for all of the action!

Booker T is not a happy man. Two weeks ago on Nitro, he, along with Diamond Dallas Page, was taken out by ‘Big Poppa Pump’ Scott Steiner, thanks to a lead pipe. Last week on Monday Nitro, Booker T saved DDP from another vicious attack from Steiner, but it only led to DDP getting into Booker’s face and challenging him for the WCW World Heavyweight Championship. Both DDP and Scott Steiner have made it known, through words and actions, that they want a shot at Slamboree for the WCW World Heavyweight Championship. This week, they will find out who gets to face Booker T because Booker T will be on Nitro and has announced he is going to determine which man he faces at Slamboree! You are not going to want to miss this big announcement, so make sure you tune into Monday Nitro!

The preparation for Slamboree has already started, as two matches have already been booked for Monday Nitro that will affect Slamboree. First off, there will be a four-team elimination tag match, with the winners getting the chance to face-off with the Filthy Animals, Rey Misterio Jr. and Billy Kidman, for the WCW Cruiserweight Tag Team Titles, at Slamboree! Air Raid, AJ Styles and Air Paris, will take on the Yung Dragons, Kaz Hayashi and Yang, former Cruiserweight Tag Champions Elix Skipper and Kid Romeo, and the team of Lash Leroux and Kwee-Wee! Only one of these four teams can face the Filthy Animals at Slamboree, but which team will it be!

The United States Title Tournament will have its one, and only, semi-final match-up this week on Monday Nitro when Hugh Morris fights The Wall! Morris defeated Kanyon last week to advance to the semi-finals, while The Wall defeated Konnan. This week the two men look to get that next victory to boost them to the United States Title Final against Lance Storm! Both men have a history with Lance Storm, as they both fought together against Storm in the Misfits in Action, so they have lots of motivation to get to Slamboree this Sunday! Which man will get the chance to fight for the United States Title at Slamboree; The Wall or Hugh Morris? Find out by tuning into Nitro!

Also on Monday Nitro, Ric Flair has a special announcement for ‘The Chosen One’ Jeff Jarrett! KroniK faces the Mamalukes, and Shane Helms will go one-on-one with his former 3 Count band mate, Evan Karagias! Plus, appearances from Eric Bischoff, Diamond Dallas Page, Scott Steiner, Jeff Jarrett, Rick Steiner, Shannon Moore, Lance Storm, Jim Duggan, the WCW Cruiserweight Tag Team Champions Rey Misterio Jr. and Billy Kidman, and the WCW Tag Team Champions Chuck Palumbo and Sean O’Haire! It is going to be a huge night on Monday Nitro, so don’t miss the final Nitro before Slamboree! Be sure to tune into the USA Network this Monday night at 8PM EST, and join Tony Schiavone and Mike Tenay for the best show in professional wrestling today!

Confirmed Matches:

Hugh Morris vs. The Wall- US Title Tournament Semi-Finals
Air Raid vs. Elix Skipper & Kid Romero vs. Lash Leroux & Kwee-Wee vs. Yung Dragons- WCW Cruiserweight Tag Team Titles Number One Contenders Match
KroniK vs. The Mamalukes
Evan Karagias vs. Shane Helms

World Championship Wrestling- Monday Nitro


The Main Event

The Nitro entrance video and theme plays to start the broadcast, and then cuts right to a video of the events that have taken place between Booker T, Diamond Dallas Page, and Scott Steiner. The video shows Steiner taking out both men in the main event on the 05/07 edition of Nitro, and then the ending of the Steiner/Page match last week on Nitro, followed by Booker T chasing off Steiner, leading to a stare down between Page and Booker. The video ends, and Nitro cuts right to the ring, where Booker T and Eric Bischoff are standing in the ring. Eric is in a bland black suit, simply standing there. Booker is in his tan khaki slacks and shirt, the WCW World Heavyweight Championship Belt around his shoulder. Book has a microphone in his hand, and looks unhappy.

Booker T: Alright sucka’s, let’s get right to ‘dis thing. Ya see, da past two weeks, ‘Big Poppa Pump’ Scott Steiner has been creatin’ some drama on Nitro. Two weeks ago, sucka took me and DDP both out, and then did a numba’ on Page again last week. And ya know, I was pretty pissed still about that chump takin’ me out da week before week, so I went out there an’ I was gonna put an end to this. I got ridda’ Poppa Pump, but this whole thing just couldn’t be over wit’. Diamond, you had to get all up in muh grill, and try n’ challenge me for my Dubya See Dubya World Heavyweight Championship.

Booker T stops, and paces the ring a bit. He wipes his mouth with his wrist, and then continues.

Booker T: So sucka’s, it seems ya’ both want a shot at my title. Steiner, Page, if ya both think ya can just waltz up and take muh World Heavyweight Title, then think again! I worked muh ass off ta’ get back dis title, and I ain’t lettin’ go of it that easily. I wanna keep this title around muh waist, but that doesn’t mean I’m gonna be a chump like some of the other champions in WCW’s past; I’m gonna be a fightin’ champion! And that is why I have brought Eric down here with me tonight. Eric, you’re the President of WCW now, so Eric, I want you to do me a favor. Give me DDP and Scott Steiner at Slamboree!

The crowd erupts into huge cheers at Booker’s request. They definitely want to see Booker T versus Diamond Dallas Page versus Scott Steiner at Slamboree. Bischoff takes the mic from Booker T, and is ready to give his answer.

Eric Bischoff: Booker T, you want to face Diamond Dallas Page and Scott Steiner at Slamboree? Well then you got it! At Slamboree, Booker T will defend his WCW World Heavyweight Championship against Scott Steiner and Diamond Dallas Page in a triple threat match! And not only that, but tonight, you are all going to see a bit of a warm up for that match. Since it seems both you and Page are dying to get at Steiner the most, I have another announcement. Tonight, you, Booker T, are going to team up with DDP to take on Scott Steiner and his brother, Rick Steiner!

The crowd continues to cheer thunderous praises and screams of delight at the matches just made for tonight, and for Slamboree.

Bischoff: You want DDP? You want Scott Steiner? Well Booker, you got ‘em! Best of luck at Slamboree and tonight, but hey, enough of this crap. This is WCW Monday Nitro, so let’s get the show rolling!

Bischoff’s music hits, and he walks to the back while Booker soon follows. The camera’s then cut to the commentators.

Air Raid vs. Kwee-Wee & Lash Leroux vs. Elix Skipper & Kid Romeo vs. Yung Dragons- Cruiserweight Tag Team Title Number One Contenders Match

So it is our third Nitro of the “new” WCW, and the cruiserweight tag team division finally gets some TV time. However, it is safe to say no one is really into the cruiserweight tag team division, let alone the cruiserweight division, despite the good talent pool. It should be noted that Skipper and Romeo do not come out to the Team Canada music, and there is no mention of them being a part of Team Canada, verifying that Team Canada is indeed dead. Anyways, the match is elimination style, and the first team to be put away is the total makeshift team of Lash Leroux and Kwee-Wee. About three minutes into the match, Elix Skipper hits Kwee-Wee with the Play of the Day, eliminating Leroux and Kwee-Wee. The match moves down to six men, and it is a lot of flippy-floppy action by the cruiserweights, with Air Raid botching several of their spots. After stinking the match up, Air Raid is put away at the five minute mark when Kid Romeo pins Air Paris with the Last Kiss. The match finally gets down to two teams, with those teams being Skipper & Romeo and Yung Dragons. Skipper and Romeo have all the momentum so far, having elimination the other two teams. The former Team Canada tag team control the match for three minutes, but in the end, the Yung Dragons make a great comeback with some nice spots from Hayashi and Yang. The Yung Dragons secure the victory at about the nine minute mark when Yang hits Romeo with the Yang Time from the top turnbuckle.

After the match, the Yung Dragons celebrate, but their celebrations are cut short by the music of the Filthy Animals. Rey Misterio Jr. and Billy Kidman come down to the ring with the Cruiserweight Tag Title Belts, and charge into the ring. The two men raise the belts up into the faces of the Yung Dragons, and a brawl ensues. The Filthy Animals clean house however, and soon toss the Yung Dragons from ringside, leaving the Filthy Animals to celebrate with their belts.

Yung Dragons def. Skipper & Romeo, Air Raid, and Leroux & Kwee-Wee at 9:16 (Yang pins Romeo)
Star Rating: * ¾ (62, 52, 86)

Tenay: The Yung Dragons win a hard fought cruiserweight tag team contest, and they will now move on to Slamboree and face those two men standing in the ring, Rey Misterio Jr. and Billy Kidman!

Schiavone: Professor, this cruiserweight tag team division is so exciting to watch! These men can really perform in the ring, and wrestle with everything they got every night! I can promise you all that the match at Slamboree between the Yung Dragons and the Filthy Animals will be an exciting contest to watch!

Tenay: Indeed it shall, Tony. But ladies and gentleman, don’t go away because up next, KroniK will take on the Mamalukes!

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*

KroniK vs. Mamalukes

KroniK is out here in the ring for the second straight week, this time facing a team that actually has some credibility in WCW, unlike Air Raid. The bad thing is though, this match goes longer than last week’s contest, and their opposition is not as good as Air Raid. KroniK and the Mamalukes do battle for four to five minutes, with KroniK dominating most of the match. Johnny The Bull is isolated for the most part of the match, just getting manhandled by Brian Adams and Bryan Clarke, making it seem creative is pretty high on KroniK for some reason. Anyways, KroniK continues to dominate the match, and are only on the defensive for a short bit when Big Vito mustered some offense, but in the end, he fell victim to a Clarke Meltdown. From there, KroniK gave both Vito and The Bull High Times, with Clarke pinning Vito to end the squash match.

KroniK def. Mamalukes at 4:46 (Clarke pins Vito)
Star Rating: ½ * (66, 68, 80)

KroniK Receives Their Shot

After the match as KroniK celebrates, Sean O’Haire and Chuck Palumbo come out onto the stage. The two men are dressed in jeans and no shirts, their Tag Title belts slung over their shoulders. Both men are holding mics, and cockily applaud KroniK.

Sean O’Haire: Well done, boys, well done. For the past two weeks, you have been able to kick the crap out of Air Raid and the Mamalukes. Job well done to you guys.

Chuck Palumbo: But what you haven’t done, is beat a real tag team. You haven’t fought and beat a team like Chuck Palumbo and Sean O’Haire!

O’Haire: And that is exactly why we’re out here right now. You see, we were watching your little match with the Mamalukes, and we were impressed with how you just beat the crap out of the Mamalukes. So we went to Eric Bischoff, and we asked him his thoughts on how good the big, bad, KroniK team was.

Palumbo: And he told us that you guys were pretty damn good, good enough to be considered the number one contender’s to the WCW Tag Team Titles. We laughed at that because we know that no team is as good as us, but hey, the boss has spoken.

O’Haire: Now we know you guys aren’t the smartest team ever, so we’ll break it down for you.

O’Haire and Palumbo nod at each other and start walking down the entrance ramp to the ring. Adams and Clarke look at each other and nod too, and get out of the ring and onto the apron. This brings a stop to Palumbo and O’Haire, who are a mere five feet away from KroniK now.

Palumbo: At Slamboree, it’s gonna be Chuck Palumbo and Sean O’Haire versus KroniK for the WCW Tag Team Titles!

O’Haire: Oh, and hey KroniK, me and Chuck here, we’re all about cashin’ checks and breakin’ backs!

O’Haire just used KroniK’s trademark phrase, and that has certainly pissed off Brian Adams and Bryan Clarke! KroniK dive off of the ring apron at Palumbo and O’Haire, and they tackle them to the ground! It is one huge brawl on the outside of the ring as KroniK and the Tag Champions all exchange right hands! Head of Security Doug Dillinger and his security staff rush down to the ring though and are able to break them up. KroniK is held back at ringside, while Palumbo and O’Haire flee up to the top of the entrance stage, grabbing their WCW Tag Title Belts as well. Palumbo and O’Haire raise their belts up in the air, taunting KroniK, who are forced to be held back with even more force after that. Palumbo and O’Haire walk to the back in a cocky manner, leaving KroniK to continue to fight the restraints of security.

Segment Rating: 88%

Schiavone: Wow! What a huge match that is going to be at Slamboree! Palumbo and O’Haire defend the WCW Tag Team Titles against KroniK!

Tenay: That match will definitely be an interesting one, Tony, but we have to take another commercial break! But stay tuned because coming up next, Shane Helms takes on Evan Karagias!

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*

Evan Karagias vs. Shane Helms

So for the third Nitro in a row, a 3 Count member takes on a 3 Count member. Is this foreshadowing Tank Abbott’s return to WCW to get the band back together!? Only time will tell! Anyways, the match doesn’t last very long, nor is it that good. Karagias fails to put on an exciting cruiserweight match for the second straight week, against a second great cruiserweight talent. Helms carries the match, making Karagias look better than what he is in the contest. Helms seems to dominate most of the match, working over the neck of Karagias, softening him up for the Vertebreaker. The match is running along as smooth as it can be at the five minute mark, when Shane Helms hits a cross body block. However, Evan Karagias rolls through the cross body on the landing, and ends up getting the pin on Shane Helms! Evan Karagias upsets Shane Helms! The ending was totally out of nowhere, and it doesn’t go over well with the crowd at all, or at least the part of the crowd that was watching the match.

After the match as Evan celebrates his upset victory, Shannon Moore comes out from the crowd and attacks both Shane Helms and Evan Karagias! Moore takes it to both men with right hands, but after a few moments, Helms and Karagias unite together to knock down Shannon Moore with a double dropkick. Helms goes to shake hands with Karagias, but Karagias turns on Helms and hits him with a low blow and a DDT! At this point Doug Dillinger and security comes out again to break things up, and all three cruiserweights stare each other down.

Evan Karagias def. Shane Helms at 5:04
Star Rating: * ¾ (59, 58, 74)

Schiavone: A huge upset victory for Evan Karagias against WCW Cruiserweight Champion Shane Helms here on Nitro!

Tenay: A huge upset indeed, Tony, but my question is- what in the hell was Shannon Moore doing down here in the ring after the match? He had no business down here!

Schiavone: Well, I think it is like you said last week, Shannon Moore wants that attention. Shannon Moore wants that opportunity to be a star. He certainly has gained the attention of our cruiserweight champion and Evan Karagias, so we will have to see if anything comes from that. We will update you if we find out anything of this whole fiasco between Moore, Karagias, and Helms.

The Match Is Made

Schiavone is cut off by the screaming fans because “Sprach Zarathustra” hits the sound system, bringing out ‘The Nature Boy’ Ric Flair! Flair was once again in an Armani suit, but tonight, Flair just marched right down to the ring, looking quite angry. Flair got into the ring and quickly received a microphone from a stagehand. The fans all let out one enormous “WOOO”, but Flair just shakes his head.

Ric Flair: Oh no! Not tonight! Ric Flair is not in a mood for being laid back and yelling out a “woo” here and there. Tonight, I am out here to call out Jeff Jarrett! JEFF JARRETT! You wanna come out here and run your mouth about me, huh!? You wanna call me some washed-up has been, who’s not a real legend!? Jeff Jarrett, you little punk bitch, I’ll kick your ass right here, right now!

The fans burst out into cheers, but Flair simply rips off the coat of his Armani suit, and loosens his tie. Flair’s face is getting red, but Flair just looks directly into the camera.

Flair: JEFF JARRETT! Come out here right now and kick my ass! Come out here, Jeff, and show the world that Ric Flair is a piece of shit! (bleeped) Jeff Jarrett, come out here and break a guitar right over my head! Jeff Jarrett, bring your ass out here right now! I wanna fight you, Jeff!

Ric Flair takes a deep breath and waits. Flair is waiting for Jarrett to come out, but he never does. About ten seconds go by, and still, no Jarrett.

Flair: Come on, Chosen One! I thought Jeff Jarrett was this all-star wrestler who was the biggest thing going in WCW today! Alright, Jeff, if you don’t want to fight me here, fight me at Slamboree! I’m challenging you to a match, Jeff Jarrett, this Sunday, at Slamboree! Beat the Nature Boy’s ass and prove that I’m a no body!

Ric Flair takes another deep breath, and waits again, hoping that Jarrett will come out and face him.

Flair: I see that you’re not man enough to come out here and accept my challenge man-to-man, Jeff, I understand. But Jeff, I’m telling you right now, whether you want to face me or not, this Sunday at Slamboree, you are going to wrestle the Nature Boy!

“Sprach Zarathustra” hits the sound system again, and Ric Flair drops the microphone, looking to exit the ring. Flair gets to the ring ropes, when “Chosen One” cuts “Sprach Zarathustra”, and starts to play! Ric Flair starts grinning and steps back into the center of the ring, waiting for Jarrett to come out from the backstage. Flair waits for Jarrett, yelling out ‘come kick my ass Chosen One’, when all of a sudden- WHACK! Guitar shot to the head! Jeff Jarrett just came out from the crowd and broke a guitar over the head of Ric Flair! Ric Flair crumbles to a heap in the ring, and Jarrett just picks up the fallen microphone, grinning.

Jarrett: I told ya’, Ric, that ya’d never know when someone was gonna’ break a guitar over your head. You weren’t expecting it, Ric, so I had to do it. I had to bust that guitar over your head! I had to knock you out! I had to prove to all these slap nuts that you’re weak and pathetic! Nature Boy, if you want to get your ass kicked at Slamboree, then fine, you’ll get it. You versus me at Slamboree! I’ll be waiting to kick your ass there too, Nature Boy. Ha, ha, so long, slap nut.

“Chosen One” hits the sound system again, and Jarrett walks backstage, receiving a large amount of jeers from the crowd. Jarrett gets to the stage, and turns around to face the ring. He sees the unconscious Ric Flair, and smirks. Jarrett then turns around and walks backstage.

Segment Rating: 92%

Schiavone: What a jerk! Jeff Jarrett is an arrogant jerk, Mike!

Tenay: Jeff Jarrett is a sly son of a gun, Tony, and he proved just why by sneak attacking Ric Flair. But nevertheless, Tony, it is official; Jeff Jarrett will face-off against Ric Flair at Slamboree!

Schiavone: That is very true, Professor, but will Flair be in top condition after just getting that guitar broken over his head?

Tenay: I don’t know, Tony, but I can only hope Flair will be okay to kick Jeff Jarrett’s butt at Slamboree.

Schiavone: Me too, Professor, me too. Well ladies and gentleman, we have to take another commercial break. But before we go, I have just been informed that at Slamboree, Shane Helms will defend the WCW Cruiserweight Championship against both Evan Karagias and Shannon Moore! Well, ladies and gentleman, we do indeed have to go to our commercial break, but coming up next, Hugh Morris versus The Wall in the semi-finals of the United States Title Tournament! Don’t go away!

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*

Hugh Morris vs. The Wall- United States Title Tournament Semi-Final

And so we have our first, and final, semi-final in the United States Title Tournament. This is hyped up by the commentators throughout the match that Lance Storm already got a bye to the finals at Slamboree. Anyways, the match itself is a pretty decent match for it being two big men, with The Wall dominating most of the match. The Wall earned several near falls throughout the contest, but could never put Morris away, leading to the commentators hyping up Morris’ resiliency for the second straight week. Hugh Morris wouldn’t stay down, and finally was able to get some offense in after getting beaten down for six minutes. From there, Morris continued to gain momentum, and put The Wall away after a DDT and No Laughing Matter. The win gives Morris the right to face his former arch-rival, Lance Storm, at Slamboree for the United States Title.

Hugh Morris def. The Wall at 7:17
Star Rating: * ½ (61, 61, 76)

The Finals

As Hugh Morris celebrates, Lance Storm’s music hits, and Lance walks out onto the entrance stage, holding a microphone, and dressed to wrestle. Storm simply stares at Morris, and continues to do so as Storm walks right down the entrance ramp and into the ring. Upon entering the ring, Storm gets right up in Morris’ face, showing no fear.

Lance Storm: Congratulations, Hugh Morris, you’ve just beat some worthless, pathetic, excuse of a wrestler to advance to the finals of the United States Title Tournament. Now you get to fight the greatest wrestler in WCW, for the greatest championship in WCW, the Canadian National Championship.

Lance Storm is immediately cut off by boo’s from the crowd, who hate hearing Storm praise Canada, and jeer USA. Morris doesn’t like to hear it either, who snatches the microphone away from Lance Storm.

Hugh Morris: Lance Storm, I think there is something you need to know because I don’t think you know what you’re heading into. At Slamboree, you’re going to face the biggest, baddest, no fear, son of a bitch, in this company, and you’re going to be fighting for the greatest title, the United States Title!

That earns Morris an easy cheap pop, and then a chant of “USA, USA”.

Morris: Lance, you may be one hell of a wrestler, and you can fight for Canada all you damn well want to, but Storm, this is the United States of America! This is my home turf, so boy, you better know that when you face me at Slamboree, not only are you going to have to beat me, you’re going to have to beat this whole country!

Morris gets another cheap pop, and he taunts for the crowd, soaking up the reactions he is getting. Lance Storm looks disgusted, and snatches the microphone back from Morris.

Storm: Hugh Morris, if I could please be serious for a moment! I am not out here to hear you praise a fascist nation, filled with in-bred morons like yourself! If I have to beat you and this entire horrid nation at Slamboree, then so be it!

Lance Storm turns to leave, but then turns back around to Morris.

Storm: But if I am going to have to fight those odds at Slamboree, then I guess I should get a head start!

WHAM! Lance Storm just hit Hugh Morris with a direct kick to the groin! Morris falls like a sack of bricks to the ring canvas, holding himself in extreme pain. Storm pounces on top of Hugh, and lays into him with a flurry of lefts and rights! Storm continues to punch Morris, but stops after a while to inflict more pain to him. Storm gets to his feet, and then drags Morris to his feet by the hair! Storm whips Morris hard into the corner. Morris snaps off of the turnbuckles, and staggers back into the center of the ring, right into a Super Kick! Lance Storm just took out Hugh Morris! Morris is down and out! Storm sadistically grins at his work, and leaves the ring after spitting on Morris.

Segment Rating: 80%

Schiavone: Talk about a man not having any respect! Lance Storm has no respect for this company, this country, or Hugh Morris! That attack on Hugh was cheap!

Tenay: Indeed it was, Tony, but you have to give credit to Lance Storm for being a tactician and getting an advantage going into Slamboree.

Schiavone: I won’t give that scum anything, Professor!

Tenay: Well make no mistake about it, the battle between USA and Canada rages on in WCW once again! At Slamboree, Hugh Morris and Lance Storm will do-battle once again for the United States Championship, or the Canadian National Championship!

Schiavone: It is the United States Title, bottom line, not the Canadian National Title!

Tenay: Well ladies and gentleman, we’re going to take our last commercial break! Coming up next, Booker T and Diamond Dallas Page will team up to take on Rick Steiner and their Slamboree opponent, Scott Steiner! Don’t go away!

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*

The Steiner Brothers Are All Set

Before the scheduled main event takes place, the cameras go backstage where ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund is standing by with the Steiner Brothers and Midajah.

Gene Okerlund: I am standing by the Steiner Brothers, who will team up once again, to take on Booker T and Diamond Dallas Page. First off, Scott, Rick, what are your thoughts on this big tag team match?

Scott Steiner: Let me tell you something, Mean Gene, I don’t give a damn about this tag match! All I care about is beating the crap out of Booker T and DDP! Both of these pieces of crap have been thorns in my side for far too long now, and tonight, and then at Slamboree, I am going to end their pathetic excuses of careers! Tonight, I am going to start my mission to end their careers by beating them both down to a bloody pulp with my brother, Rick, here. And then, this Sunday at Slamboree, I am going to finish what I start tonight, and win back the WCW World Heavyweight Championship!

Rick Steiner: Mean Gene, just like Scott, I don’t give a damn about this match. All I am going to do is go out to that ring, and beat the crap out of those two punks with my brother here! I will help soften these two little pieces of crap up for my brother, even though he doesn’t need it. All I care about is getting my hands on that piece of crap Jim Duggan! Jim Duggan, I already got it made official by Eric Bischoff: at Slamboree, you and me, Jim Duggan, are going to go one-on-one! I am going to break you in half Jim! I am going to break you in half!

S. Steiner: Booker T, Diamond Dallas Page, I hope you guys are ready for an ass kicking because you’re about to get one, courteous of the Steiner Brothers! Now Holla If Ya Here Me!

The Steiner Brothers walk off camera and head towards the ring.

Okerlund: Well ladies and gentleman, let’s head back to ringside so we can see the main event!

Segment Rating: 84%

Booker T and Diamond Dallas Page vs. Steiner Brothers (w/Midajah)

It’s main event time, and the crowd is red hot! The audience was digging this match from the ringing of the bell to start the match, although that didn’t necessarily make the match good. The four men all put on an eight to nine minute contest that was your typical WCW main event; high in star power, low in talent. The story in this match was Booker and DDP having to work together to take on the Steiner Brothers, but not being able to fully function as a team due do the fact that they’d be opponents in a mere six days. The hostility between Booker T and DDP led to them getting dominated for most of the match by the legendary Steiner Brothers, with Booker T ending up being worked over the most. Mid way in the match, Steiner almost had the match won it seemed when he locked in the Steiner Recliner, but DDP saved his partner. Later on, Booker T made the hot tag to DDP, and from there, chaos broke out. DDP went to work on Scott Steiner, and Booker T ended up doing a number on Rick Steiner. Rick ended up hitting a cheap shot on Booker T, which brought out Jim Duggan. Duggan came down into the ring and chased Rick Steiner out of it, and the two then began brawling at ringside, and then through the crowd and out of sight. This left Booker T and DDP in the ring alone with Scott Steiner, and it did not go to well for Steiner. The two faces worked together to take out Big Poppa Pump with right hands, before Booker hit Steiner with the Harlem Axe Kick. From there, DDP finished Scott Steiner off with the Diamond Cutter to gain his team the victory.

After the match, DDP and Booker T celebrated, but when Booker was handed his WCW World Heavyweight Title Belt, tension mounted between the two men. The two had a stare down, and when Booker raised the title into the air, DDP attacked him! The two men exchanged right hands, but were then both blindsided by Scott Steiner! Big Poppa Pump tried to attack both DDP and Booker T, but he was quickly fought off when the two men united together. Steiner was thrown to the outside of the ring, making it DDP and Booker again, with DDP standing behind Booker T. When Booker turned around, DDP went for a quick Diamond Cutter, but Booker shoved Page into the corner turnbuckles. Page staggered backwards into the center of the ring, where he was then planted with the Book End! With both of his challengers down and out, Booker T raised his World Title high into the sky and celebrated as Nitro came to a close.

DDP and Booker T def. Steiner Brothers at 8:39 (DDP pins S. Steiner)
Star Rating: * (72, 85, 71)

Tenay: Nitro will end this week with Booker T standing tall, but will this be the same ending in six days at Slamboree?

Schiavone: I don’t know, Professor, but there is only one way to find out, and that is to order Slamboree, this Sunday on Pay Per View! Ladies and gentleman, you’re not going to want to miss this great Pay Per View, so be sure to contact your local Pay Per View provider and order Slamboree, this Sunday night, at 8 PM, Eastern Standard Time! For Mike Tenay, I’m Tony Schiavone, so long and goodnight ladies and gentleman, and see you at Slamboree!

Default Re: WCW 2001- The Trio Ownership

Sorry I didn't review your first show but I gotta say, I think this is the best WCW thread I have ever read in my time here in BTB. Not only are you putting the matches on but you tell the truth on it too. Like the Kronik match. You even said that was a DUD. You are being honest and excellent on your thread and I think we have a New Booker of the Month as of now.

After following this thread from the start I can't wait for Slamboree, but only really because of the WCW Championship match and the Flair/Jarrett match.

After the pay per view could there possible be some new talent added to WCW to create better matches?

Yeah, I'm thinking the same as Jack Flash really, as those are the main matches, and I hope Jarrett wins and DDP wins the title.

Default Re: WCW 2001- The Trio Ownership

Yeah, with only having three shows until Slamboree, I didn't have a lot of time to develop a lot of the feuds. As you can tell, this show was all hype to Slamboree, with matches being made left and right here. I didn't necessarily like that too much, but it was needed. I think the Flair/Jarrett feud has devleped well with each week, even though Jarrett didn't appear until the second week. Same with Booker/DDP/Steiner. I think that the feud there has progressed well throughout the 3 Nitro's.

I am going to start Slamboree today, but the matches will either be written in full, or they will almost be written in full. So I wouldn't expect Slamboree to be done for anywhere between one to two weeks. But thanks to all who have read, and I appreciate your feedback. And after Slamboree, I am looking to bringing in some new talent possibly, but I still want to focus on the core WCW roster. One thing I should mention though, is that the star ratings are lower on TV than they would be on PPV because the wrestlers have less time to make a match great and develop it. So a * 3/4 match on Nitro wuld really by a *** match on PPV. But anyways, enough of me talking. Thanks for all the feedback, and I hope you all enjoy Slamboree.
