Re: WCW 2001- The Trio Ownership

Halloween Havoc Review

Flying Harts vs. Shane Helms & Super Crazy: Good cruiserweight contest to kick off the show. I loved the fast pace action building up lots of steam as soon as the match starts all the way to the mid point of the match. Great finish here, the blind tag/not understand English segment from Super Crazy which distracts Shane Helms, making him the perfect target for a reverse hurracanrana, before Super Loco gets a Hart Attack 2.0 giving the heels the win of the opening contest. ***

Get Your Translator, Essa!: A decent promo, though not long enough to be that good of a promo. Sugar Shane tells Super Crazy that he has no more use for him and doesn't want him as a partner, signifying more and more of a possible Shane Helms turn. Defiantly looking how things pan out here.

Lance Storm © vs. Cal Anderson (w/Arn Anderson) vs. Curt Hennig: Awesome match, one of the best triple threats I read in a while. I was cheering for all three of these guys to get the win, and it is great to see Storm get the victory. This match was just great, I loved the creative spots that you put into the match especially the Anderson Spinebuster spot. Really looking forward to where Lance Storm's title reign takes him next. ****1/4

PPV Is Uncensored!: Nice promo here with Scott Steiner putting himself over along with saying whatever he wants, talking about how Awesome is just a hardcore reject.

Young Lions © vs. KroniK: Like always, one of my favorites, Brian Adams, and his tag partner end up screwing up a match that has been built up nicely. A good match though for the most part, as this is a KroniK match. The Young Lions are able to finish off KroniK with the Seanton Bomb and Chuck Palumbo gets the pin. Hopefully now that this match is over, the Young Lions push KroniK to the side and move on to more exciting opponets. ***

Mike Awesome vs. Scott Steiner (w/Midajah): Not the best of matches, but it was one heck of a tables match, quite possibly the best signles table match I ever read. After this match, I am really starting to get into Mike Awesome in this thread, and I will defiantly be cheering on the ECW 'sell out' for the rest of this BTB. A bit of a predictable ending for the match after Steiner got knocked onto the apron, but overall a very good match. ***1/2

Survey Says...: Entertaining promo, I defiantly marked out when they announced themselves as The Wolfpack. So we got what we had years ago WCW vs. nWo Wolfpack vs. nWo Hollywood, this shall defiantly be great while it lasts, but I don't think Nash and Hall will be around too long.

Scott Hall w/Kevin Nash vs. Sting: Sting basicially gets double teamed by the Wolfpack for a good amount of the match. It finally ends with Sting getting the victory via disqualification from Nash interfereeing again. More of an exciting match, than a great match, but still pretty good. ***1/4

Choke On These (Slap)Nuts!: Decent promo here with Jarrett, though I was expecting a bit more with this seeming to be on of the major points in this feud.

Billy Kidman vs. Rey Misterio Jr.: Great match here, seemed more like a squash in Kidman's favor for a while, but this was an amazing match, espesially for a brawl. You defiantly used this gimmick to the maxium possibilty, which I really liked instead of like most of the time, they would just leave the ring every once in a while. Sucks that it had to have a DQ ending, but it should defiantly get Rey Misterio more over as a heel, now robbing the fans of an amazing match. I am hopeing that we get at least one more match or you let this thing go onto StarrCade. ****1/4

Hogan’s Gonna Dig It, Brother!: Nice promo by Booker T putting himslf over for this match with "Hollywood" Hulk Hogan tonight.

Jeff Jarrett © (w/Eric Bischoff) vs. Ric Flair (w/Arn Anderson): Very good match, I loved the concept of how it felt more so like an early 2000 match. The No DQ stipulation made by Bischoff made things a bit intresting, though at the end you showed why the main reason was, with Eric Bischoff having showed the true plan of The Outsiders, ah man I was so excited about the Wolfpack! The Outsiders are with the nWo, for less than a minute as they quickly swerve on Bischoff showing they are indeed the Wolfpack. They still cost Ric Flair the victory though, but it just conitues the fact that they are now with WCW or nWo. ***3/4

The Super Cage: One of the most corny video packages ever, lol. Still it got a good discription in to show what the Super Cage is all about. Mayhem defiantly will be awesome with this match on the card.

Booker T vs. Hulk Hogan: I didn't care about the lack of inring ability from Hogan, or the length, this match defiantly dragged me in with the thought of okay I really want Booker T tio win, but I know 'Hollywood' Hogan is going to win because this is WCW and this is Hogan. However, Booker T was able to get the well deserved victory over the Icon. You really had me going when Hulk Hogan gained the advantage at the end and also when you only had "ONE! TWO!" at the second to last paragraph. Hopefully this has gotten Booker T over enough so that he can win back the WCW World Heavyweight Championshiip in the coming year of 2002. ***3/4

Overall: 80/100 Great Pay-Per-View, Booker T vs. Hulk Hogan had to be my favorite match, though it wasn't MOTN.

Re: WCW 2001- The Trio Ownership

Woot woot! Thanks bro, greatly appreciated. And so happy that you got the intended corniness with the Super Cage. I was trying to spoof Ulmec/Ulmac from the amazing Nickolodean TV show Legends of the Hidden Temple.

And now, Nitro.

World Championship Wrestling
Wednesday Nitro
Little John Coliseum, Clemson, South Carolina
October 31, 2001



Tony Schiavone: Welcome lades and gentleman, to Wednesday Nitro! We are live from Clemson University, and just three days removed from our greatest pay per view to date, Halloween Havoc! I’m ‘The Voice of WCW’ Tony Schiavone, and alongside me, as always, ‘The Professor’ Mike Tenay!

Mike Tenay: Thank you Tony, and-

The Professor gets cut off as the camera quickly cuts to the back.

Paranoia In The nWo Camp & The Super Cage Details Revealed

In the backstage, Eric Bischoff is calmly sitting in the nWo locker room, all by his lonesome. However, after a quick moment, the door bursts open, and Jeff Jarrett barges in, WCW World Heavyweight Title Belt on his shoulder, and looking angry, but even more, paranoid.

Jeff Jarrett: Eric! Eric, I’ve been looking for you all day. Have you been avoiding me!? I’ve run into the rest of the boys time after time, but you’ve been hiding from me!

Bischoff sits up from the couch, and looks confused and alarmed.

Eric Bischoff: Jeff, Jeff, Jeff… what are you talking about?

Jeff looks at Eric incredulously.

Jeff Jarrett: Only the most demonic structure known to professional wrestling, Eric! The Super Cage! It’s coming back at Mayhem, and that would mean it’s your doing it’s coming back! And rumor has it, that I’m going to be the Super Cage with three other guys, for my WCW World Heavyweight Title on the line! And you’ve been hiding from me, refusing to tell me that I have to wrestle in the Super Cage at Mayhem, November the 18th! And not only that, EVERYBODY is out to get me, Eric! ‘Big Poppa Pump’ Scott Steiner has wanted my blood ever since you threw him out of the New World Order! Booker T’s calling himself the number one contender after pinning Hogan on Sunday, and hell, Hulk isn’t even here tonight! Sting wants a Title shot! Old man Flair wants another crack, and Kevin Nash and Scott Hall have been bragging all day about kicking my ass at Halloween Havoc!

Jarrett pulls at his hair and takes a deep breath.

Jeff Jarrett: I’m losing my mind, Bischoff! I’m nervous, I’m anxious, and I’m worried. Everyone’s closing in on me, but the problem is, all I want right now is to kick the crap out of The Outsiders. They made a fool out of me on Sunday, and I want a match with the both of them! And to make matters worse, you’re hiding information from me!

Jeff flops down onto the black leather couch, looking completely paranoid. Bischoff is astonished.

Eric Bischoff: Jeff, you need to calm down, right now! Take a deep breath, and realize what you have right here. You’re the WCW World Heavyweight Champion, and the leader of the New World Order; the most dominant faction in the history of professional wrestling! You got the back-up from Mike Awesome, Curt Hennig, and KroniK, plus we’ve got the biggest legend in the history of wrestling, The Icon, Hulk Hogan! And think, Jeff! I am the WCW President! I mean, I may not be a contracted member of WCW anymore thanks to the nWo, but I still run things! And do you honestly think that I would put you, US, in danger like that!? No! Yes, the Super Cage is coming back to World Championship Wrestling at Mayhem, and yes the Super Cage is the most lethal and hellacious structure known to wrestling, but Jeff this is for you!

Bischoff grins at Jeff, while The Chosen One still looks confused.

Jeff Jarrett: What? How is the Super Cage for me, Eric?

Eric Bischoff: Jeff, the Super Cage, is a number one contenders match! I may be the WCW President, but there is still a board of directors, and they can still put pressure on my ass to uphold the rules and regulations of this God forsaken company. Jeff, you’re the WCW World Heavyweight Champion, and that Title has to be defended at Starrcade. If it was up to me, that wouldn’t be enforced, but the board is making it so! But me, I’m on top of the game, Champ. Four men will enter the Super Cage at Mayhem, and there will be a briefcase suspended 45 feet in the air, and whoever grabs that briefcase, will get to sign a contract that states they will wrestle for the WCW World Heavyweight Title at Starrcade! So you see, I am going to make your opponent for Starrcade go through hell, just to get the opportunity of a lifetime to wrestle you on pay per view, let alone for the WCW World Heavyweight Title!

Bischoff looks at Jeff, and grins, hoping that the matter is now settled. Jeff’s head is down, and in thought. After pausing for a moment, Jeff speaks, his head still looking down at the floor.

Jeff Jarrett: Who are the four guys in the match?

Eric Bischoff: Well… I don’t know who all of the competitors are myself, the board is locking down on me. However, I will gladly tell you what I do know. I don’t know why they have chosen this piece of crap, but Booker T is in the Super Cage. And the other guy that the board has already declared, is the “savior” of WCW, the biggest waste of space I’ve ever met, Sting. Yeah, they put him in the Super Cage.

The last comment was said after Jeff’s head shot up after hearing The Stinger was in the match too. Jeff’s face just looks even more worried after finding out that two men who have been after Jeff’s blood for months, Booker T and Sting, are now fighting for the chance to face Jeff Jarrett at Starrcade, next December.

Jeff Jarrett: …And the other two?

Eric Bischoff: Well, I think this one may be one you want to hear. The board, the pieces of crap that they are, has already given Kevin Nash or Scott Hall the chance to be in the Super Cage. Either Outsider can be in the match, those two can decide who is the match apparently.

Jeff Jarrett: I want them both tonight!

Wow, I am kind of digging this new Jarrett. He’s actually not being a pussy tonight, he is open to wrestling!

Eric Bischoff: Jeff… that’s just not going to happen. Those two Outsiders are already in a match against the good ole boys’ favorite two, Ric Flair and Sting. And even if they weren’t, I don’t know if you’re ready for another match, Jeff. You had a big night on Sunday, and you need to rest tonight.

Jeff Jarrett: …Fine. I’ll rest tonight, but next week, I don’t care if it’s Kevin Nash or Scott Hall! I am wrestling one of The Outsiders next week on Nitro! NO ONE, and I mean no one, makes a fool out of Jeff Jarrett, and goes unscathed! Bischoff, I mean it; next week, a slap nut is going to get his ass kicked!

Bischoff grins as Jeff starts to regain his usual swagger. He pats him on the shoulder, only for Jeff’s head to shoot back up at Eric. He looks incredibly worried again.

Jeff Jarrett: …You never said the fourth man, Eric. Who’s the fourth man in the Super Cage? Who else gets the chance to wrestling me for my Title!? Don’t you tell me it is Scott Steiner! It better not be Scott Steiner! Or Ric Flair! I’ve had it up to here (his hand now parallel with his eyes) with Scott Steiner, and that stupid slap nut, Ric Flair!

Jarrett’s face is that of anger, but his eyes tell a much different story, paranoia. Jeff Jarrett is afraid of Ric Flair, and especially Scott Steiner.

Eric Bischoff: Champ, I don’t know who the fourth man is.

Jeff Jarrett immediately starts to look paranoid, and of course, angry. Eric quickly consoles him.

Eric Bischoff: However! However… don’t worry, Jeff. You are The Chosen One, and as your manager, your President, your leader, and your friend, I am not going to let the steroid-injecting Scott Steiner, or “Father Time” himself, Ric Flair, get into that Super Cage. Now Jeff, come on… let’s get you out of this locker room, and get some coffee. Show off that Title belt of yours to the ladies… show ‘em just who the Champ is.

Jarrett nods, and while looking a bit better, although still nowhere near happy, he leaves the room. Once out of the room, Bischoff’s perky expression drops, and Eric runs his hands over his face, looking just as stressed out as Jeff was.

Eric Bischoff: Someone needs to get that man a Prozac…

Bischoff flops down onto the leather couch, and closes his eyes, stressed, as the show heads to a…


When the show returns, we’re back at the commentary booth.

Tony Schiavone: Welcome back to Wednesday Nitro, folks, and if you ask me, it looks like Jeff Jarrett and Eric Bischoff are two very, very stressed out men!

Mike Tenay: Well I think both men have a right to, Tony. Jeff is right; everybody is out to get the WCW World Heavyweight Championship! It’s the most prestigious Championship in the world today, and everybody wants the belt! Plus, everyone who isn’t a New World Order member, wants the blood of Jeff Jarrett! No one likes the New World Order; this is World Championship Wrestling folks! The wrestlers are here to wrestle in WCW, not be overran by a tyrant, Eric Bischoff, and his cronies, the New World Order!

Tony Schiavone: And speaking of the tyrant, the no good scheming bastard, he has the reasons to be stressed too, although I must say, it’s a pity he hasn’t had a nervous break down! I’d love to see that weasel have to go into therapy for depression, and leave WCW for quite a while! But anyways, if you saw the excellent pay per view that was Halloween Havoc, you would have saw that nothing when the way for the New World Order! Curt Hennig got dropped on his head and was pinned in the North American Title match allowing Lance Storm to retain his Title! Scott Steiner put Mike Awesome through a table in their tables match, and KroniK were unsuccessful in winning back the WCW Tag Titles! Plus, in what I would call his biggest victory ever, Booker T scored the huge pin fall victory over ‘Hollywood’ Hulk Hogan!

Mike Tenay: And let it be repeated, Hulk Hogan is not here tonight either! He went through hell on Sunday with Booker T, and he is home resting after going through that war!

Tony Schiavone: And then of course, in the WCW World Heavyweight Title match, Jeff Jarrett was able to escape with his Title still intact, but my oh my, did Jeff and Bischoff ever get made fools out of!

Mike Tenay: Oh yes they did, Tony! ‘The Enforcer’ Double A, Arn Anderson, did quite a number on Eric Bischoff during that match, and The Outsiders, Kevin Nash and Scott Hall, fresh off their return to WCW, assaulted both Ric Flair and Jeff Jarrett!

In the background, a knock off of the old Hart Foundation theme hits, bringing out Teddy Hart and Jack Evans to light boos.

Tony Schiavone: And we know Jeff Jarrett is fuming about that! The Outsiders humiliated Jeff, but the one who should really be pissed is Ric Flair! Ric Flair was Jack Knife Power Bombed by Kevin Nash, and also had Jeff Jarrett’s guitar broken over his head by The Outsiders!

Mike Tenay: However tonight, ‘The Nature Boy’ Ric Flair will get his chance for redemption, and plus, we will see somewhat of a preview of the Super Cage! Ric Flair and Sting will team up to take on The Outsiders, and two of those men, Sting and either Hall or Nash, will be in the Super Cage, November 18, at Mayhem, for the right to face off with Jeff Jarrett for the WCW World Heavyweight Title at the biggest pay per view of the year, Starrcade! But now, we have gabbed long enough, Tony, let’s get the hot wrestling action under way with Jack Evans of the Flying Harts taking on the current WCW Cruiserweight Champion, ‘Sugar’ Shane Helms!

‘Sugar’ hits next, The Flying Harts now in the ring, bringing out ‘Sugar’ Shane Helms and the Sugar Babies, who have resurfaced in WCW once again. Helms gets a rather tweenerish sort of reaction from the crowd, the cheers are there from the fans in Clemson, but quite a few boos can be heard as well. Helms brushes it off as he goes through his usual entrance with the Sugar Babies before entering the ring. Once in the ring, Helms hands his Title belt over to referee Mark Johnson, who was not at the Halloween Havoc PPV, due to his wife being in labor, according to Tony. Congratulations is given to Mark, and they welcome him back. And now, let’s get started!

Match One
Jack Evans (w/Teddy Hart) vs. Shane Helms (w/Sugar Babies)
Non-Title Singles Match

The crowd wasn’t really into this match from the get-go, as Jack Evans is clearly the less over-man of the two Flying Harts, and the crowd is still responding to the slow character turn of Shane Helms. The crowd heckled Helms quite a bit in the early going, disrupting Helms’ normal rhythm, allowing Evans to get on the advantage early after a drop kick (with Evans back flipping after making contact with Helms’ chest), multiple arm drags, as well as a wicked snap hurricanrana. The snap ‘rana earned Evans a two count, but that was all he got. The crowd’s focused started to dwindle again as Evans slowed down the pace a bit, working over Helms on the ground for the better part of the next two or three minutes. Finally catching the hint that the crowd didn’t want to see a spot monkey try and mat wrestle, Jack picked up the pace, hitting a tilt-a-whirl head scissors, as well as a springboard leg lariat from the second rope. Evans really showed his aerial abilities moments later, attempting a 630 Senton. However, the impressive, multiple flipping, maneuver failed, as Helms rolled out of the way, and Evans was left to crash onto the canvas, back first. As Helms recovered and started a flurry of offense, the college kids of Clemson University flip-flopped like the next Democratic Presidential candidate, cheering quite loudly for Helms as he scored with several stiff kicks, and than a big drop kick. A spinning hurricanrana followed, and then a shining wizard. As Shane Helms called for the most innovative finisher in WCW today, the Vertebreaker, Teddy Hart grabbed the WCW Cruiserweight Title Belt from the timekeeper’s table, entered the ring, and blasted Shane Helms in the back of the head with it! The crowd immediately started to boo, as Mark Johnson called the match off.

Result: Shane Helms def. Jack Evans by DQ at 6:38

As the bell rings, The Flying Harts start to lay the boots to the fallen Shane Helms, despite protests from Mark Johnson. He eventually gets shoved down by Teddy Hart, resulting in more boos. Shoving down a referee always makes for a great heel. After about ten seconds of the stomping, Evans pulls Helms up to his feet, while Teddy Hart exits onto the apron. Evans locks onto Helms from behind, and starts to lift him up into the air, just as Teddy Harts jumps off the apron and onto the third rope. Hart springboards off the third rope in a blink of the eye, crushing Helms with a flying lariat as Evans folds Helms up like the proverbial accordion, and they connect with the Hart Attack 2.0! By this point, the crowd is booing, but here comes the face to save the day, ‘The Insane Luchadore’ Super Crazy! As the rift of ‘Roadhouse Blues’ plays, Super Crazy sprints down the entrance ramp, a steel chair in hand. As soon as he enters the ring, The Flying Harts high-tail it out of the ring and up to the entrance ramp. Super Crazy, who was told at Halloween Havoc to stay away from Shane Helms by the Cruiserweight Champion, checks on Sugar Shane, and eventually helps him up to his feet. Once on his feet, Helms looks disgusted at Super Crazy, and shoves him away before exiting the ring. Helms grabs his fallen Cruiserweight Title Belt, and storms up the entrance ramp, looking angry while holding his neck in pain.

Tony Schiavone: What has gotten into Shane Helms, Professor!?

Mike Tenay: Well Tony, I’m not sure. Super Crazy has done nothing but been a friend and partner to Shane Helms to help him fend off the Flying Harts, but that doesn’t seem to be good enough for Shane Helms! He wants Super Crazy gone and out of his life, but apparently our foreign friend, who from what we know, cannot understand English, doesn’t understand Helms’ demand!

Tony Schiavone: Well it looks like we’re going to have to monitor Shane Helms’ behavior closely over these next few weeks, Mike. Maybe we’ll start to understand why he’s acting the way he is!

Mike Tenay: Uh huh, maybe Tony. Anyways, let us send you backstage now where ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund is standing by with the Filthy Animals, Billy Kidman and Konnan!

Cut to the back!

After A Stellar Match, The Paint Dries

Backstage at the interview area, Mean Gene is in his best penguin suit, while Konnan and Kidman (plus Tygress), are in their usual attires. Kidman is sporting black jean shorts and a wife beater; Konnan has sweat pants that heavily expose his boxers, a Filthy Animals tee shirt, a black top hat and shades, plus a red and grey checked bandana around his neck, instead of his mouth. Tygress… she’s a ho who has no value in this federation. Oh, my bad. Thought I was supposed to say who she was, not what she was wearing.

Gene Okerlund: Hello everybody, I hope you’re enjoying this broadcast of Wednesday Nitro! I’m ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund, and as you can tell, the men I am standing here with, are the Filthy Animals, and their lovely valet, Tygress! Let me start with you Billy. How are you feeling right now after getting cheated out of another chance at beating Rey Misterio Jr.!?

Billy Kidman: Well Gene, I’m exactly what you think I am. I am angry, and generally pissed off! Rey, you and me, we tore the house down in Greensville, on Sunday, at Halloween Havoc. We put on one hell of a match, and gave the fans something they all will remember. And normally, that would be enough for me, knowing I entertained the fans. But no, not this time! Not against you! When I’m against you, I want, no, I DESERVE, the victory. Rey, face it. On Sunday, I was the better man, again! I out-wrestled you, and I simply, better. And I was this (Billy leaves a small amount of space between his right thumb and index finger) close to beating you, but just like at Fall Brawl, you cheated me out of the win, this time, getting yourself disqualified. Rey, you can’t keep this up forever! Sooner or later, you and me, we are going to wrestle one-on-one, and you’re not going to be able to run, you’re not going to be able to hide, and you’re not going to be able to get yourself disqualified! It will be just you and me, one fall to a finish. And Rey, I promise you, when it is all said and done, I will be the one with my hand raised in victory!

Kidman, his eyes a raging fire, stares into the camera, looking fired up. Okerlund turns his attention to Konnan as Kidman snaps out of his trance.

Gene Okerlund: K-Dawg, Konnan… how are ya’ doing tonight!?

Konnan: Gene-O, I’m doin’ good essa! But first, yo, yo, yo, lemme speak on ‘dis! ORALE! ARRRIBA LA RAZZZA! Gene-O, at Halloween Havoc, my main brotha’, Billy Kidman, he got upright screwed by da’ traita’ Rey Misterio Junia’! But no one needs ta’ fear anymore, ‘cuz as a’ now, I’m gonna make sure ‘dat K-Man here ain’t screwed no more! Me n’ Kidman, we da’ Filthy Animals, and ta’night, we gonna prove it when we beat some punk’s ass! So K-Man, let’s go do ‘dis! ARRRIBA, ARRRIBA!

The crowd can be heard cheering as the Filthy Animals walk off from the interview area, and just before the show heads to break, we hear this from Mike Tenay…

Mike Tenay: The Filthy Animals are in tag-team action against The Mamalukes, next, right after this quick commercial break!


As Nitro returns, The Mamalukes, Big Vito and Johnny The Bull, are entering the ring, tension clearly present between the two men. The tag team haven been on a losing streak this past month, and hadn’t accomplished anything, or done anything to get TV time until their losing streak started. Last week we thought things snapped between the two; Big Vito and Johnny The Bull broke out into a scuffle, but apparently they’re trying to team up one more time. The crowd starts to get onto their feet in cheers as ‘Filthy’ plays, bringing out the always fan favorites, The Filthy Animals, Billy Kidman, Konnan, and Tygress! The trio makes their way down the ring, looking ready to go, slapping hands with the crowd while entering down the ramp. Kidman and Konnan enter the ring, pose and taunt in the ring quickly, and then get ready for their match to get underway.

Match Two
Filthy Animals (w/Tygress) vs. Mamalukes
Tag Team Match

The Mamalukes have been on their losing streak, and their break-up has slowly started to take place. Tonight, this was the ice breaker. Billy Kidman and Konnan mowed through The Mamalukes from the get-go. Konnan beat down on Big Vito with heavy right hands and assorted slams and suplexes in the opening two minutes, while Kidman connected with a spinning hurricanrana, a springboard back elbow from the second rope, and a tilt-a-whirl head scissors. The crowd was read hot for the Animals, as always, and only got hotter when both The Mamalukes got tossed to the outside by Konnan, followed up by Kidman knocking both men down after a springboard shooting star press from the third rope. From there, Johnny The Bull sulked over to his corner, looking angry at Vito, who staggered into the ring. Konnan briefly worked over Vito in the ring, ending his run with a K-Factor, his version of the X-Factor. The tag was made to Kidman, who hit a couple of dropkicks and more aerial maneuvers before hitting the Animal Cruelty, his version of the Sky High. Tag back to Konnan, and he connected with the 187. The pin was made, and Johnny The Bull just dropped off the apron, looking angry and embarrassed with Vito, walking over to the timekeeper’s table, allowing Konnan to score the quick and easy three.

Result: The Filthy Animals def. The Mamalukes at 5:10

After the match is over, The Filthy Animals leave the ring, sensing some bad blood about go boil over between The Mamalukes, and celebrated up the entrance ramp.

I Am No Longer What I Am, But I Am What I Once Was, Again

Like the title?

Johnny The Bull rolls back into the ring as The Filthy Animals continue their celebration. Johnny has a steel chair in his hands, and waits for Big Vito to get to his feet. Ito does just a few moments later, and when he does, he gets drilled by the steel chair, right into the cranium! Big Vito drops like a ton of bricks, and Johnny Te Bull smirks sadistically at his fallen partner. His smirk then turns into anger, and he starts to stab the chair into Vito’s mid-section repeatedly, showing no remorse as he assaults Vito’s ribs. Finally Johnny The Bull lays one more chair shot to Vito’s face, and tosses the chair on The Mamaluke. As the crowd is slightly booing The Bull (for the first time in months), he walks over to the edge of the ring, and grabs a microphone from a stagehand. And to the surprise of many, when he speaks, it is not in the fake Italian accent he has always spoken in, but that of a regular tone.

Johnny The Bull: Big Vito… I am sick of being held down by you! I am sick and tired of being stuck in a tag team that is going nowhere! I’m a star of the future, and you, you’re a greasy Italian who is a ‘never was’. You’re not even good enough to be a ‘has been’ Vito; you’re the slime ball who held down Johnny Stamboli, when you weren’t even good enough to carry my jock!

Stamboli pauses as he spits on Vito. However, that’s not the scary part of this; Vito’s rolled onto his side, and is coughing up blood quietly. He’s bleeding internally. Oh wow, some more boos from Johnny.

Johnny Stamboli: For months, hell, the past few years, I have stuck with you, Vito, and been dragged down. You forced me to act like some bad ass Italian, and give me some “menacing” nickname of The Bull. Screw that! I am no Mamaluke, Vito, I am Johnny Stamboli, the future of this business, and a natural born thriller! And that is why, Vito, I am challenging your sorry ass to a match at Mayhem, November 18! If, no, when, I beat you, and show the world just how pathetic you are, and how great I am, you’re Italian ass is out on the street, while Johnny Stamboli is hailed as this sport’s next icon!

Stamboli lays a few stomps to Vito, who is still bleeding internally.

Johnny Stamboli: See you at Mayhem… if you can make, “partner”.

Stamboli snickers as The Mamalukes theme hits. The crowd boos Stamboli a bit as he leaves the ring, while Johnny looks disgusted with the theme music playing. He trots to the back anyways as EMT’s rush down the ramp to attend to Vito.

Tony Schiavone: Professor, I have never been a fan of Big Vito, or The Mamalukes in general, but I sure do hope that Big Vito is okay.

Mike Tenay: Well me too, Tony. The Mamalukes have been on a bad losing skid, and as you all just witnessed, Johnny ‘The Bull’ Stamboli has had enough, and he just savagely attacked Vito. Those steel chairs are unforgiving; Big Vito definitely is going to have some internal injuries I expect.

Tony Schiavone: Well Professor, we can’t know for sure at this time, but boys and girls at home, we promise to give you an update on Big Vito when we find out his status later on.

Tony comes to a pause, and the cameras immediately cut to the backstage.

Outsiders In Da House

And we’re backstage, in the locker room of The Outsiders, Kevin Nash and Scott Hall. Both men are already dressed to wrestle, as they do have a tag team match in the main event tonight. Both men are chilling out, sitting on a (hideous) black and red couch. That’s trying to get over the Wolfpack colors a little too much.

Scott Hall: Heh, hey yo, Kev… was Sunday night a good ole’ time or wha’?

Nash and Hall both snicker.

Kevin Nash: Scotty man, once again we showed the world just how great and unpredictable The Outsiders are. We fooled Eric Bischoff. We beat the crap out of Sting, Ric Flair, and Jeff Jarrett. I mean, God, we accomplished what everyone’s been trying to do for months. We dominated WCW at Halloween Havoc. The nWo and WCW are having their little war, but man, as soon as The Outsiders show up, it’s the Wolfpack who are running the show.

Scott Hall: Heh, oh yeah, Kev. An’ now ta’night, da’ Outsiders, are gonna beat down da’ old farts… Flair an’ Sting… an’ nex’ week, we gonna do it ta’… Jeff Jarrett.

Kevin Nash: Yeah… about that, Scotty. Which one of us do you think should win the strap next week? I mean, we’re both deserving Champions. Talented, charismatic, good looking… we got it all. I mean, personally, I’d like to win the strap next week…

Scott Hall: …An’ as you know, Big Kev, I neva’ won da’ “big one”… da’ Dubya-See-Dubya World Heavyweight Championship… so I think ‘dat I should wrestle nex’ week… for da’ title.

Kevin Nash: …So we both want the shot. I guess there’s only one way to settle this… sorry Scott.

Kevin Nash stands up from his seat, towering over the sitting Hall. Hall stands up too.

Scott Hall: Naw so fast, Kev… are we doin’ first fall, or two outta three?

Kevin Nash: One fall to a finish, Scotty. Just you and me, one-on-one.

With it seeming like they’re about to come to blows, Nash and Hall throw out their hands, and start moving them up and down three times. And then, Hall throws out the dreaded rock, but Nash counters with paper! Paper covers Rock! Oh, what a match! In an intense battle of Rock, Paper, Scissors, Kevin Nash is victorious! Hall and Nash both grin, especially Kev, who now is facing Jeff next week.

Kevin Nash: Well Scotty, paper covers rock. I win. So next week, Jeff Jarrett, it looks like Big Sexy is going to be defeating you for the World Heavyweight Title. Now Scotty, lets sit back and relax until our match. And then afterwards… you know what’s going on, right?

Nash grins, as does Hall, looking absolutely delighted.

Scott Hall: Oh yea’… we partay!

Nash and Hall bangs fists, and sit back on the couch, looking chilled.

Mike Tenay: Well Tony, The Outsiders are looking calm and collected tonight! But they have every reason too! They made a big impact at Halloween Havoc on Sunday, and now tonight, they’re in the main event with Flair and Sting! And not to mention, Nash faces Jarrett for the World Title next week on Nitro, and one of them is still in the Super Cage match at Mayhem!

Tony Schiavone: It’s good to be an Outsider sometime, Professor! Anyways, we have to take another commercial break, but stay tuned, because up next, Lance Storm is in action!


When Nitro returns, Jamie Noble, clad in jean shorts and wrestling boots, is standing in the ring, ready for action. A few moments later, WCW’ rift of Grinspoon’s ‘Snap Your Fingers, Snap Your Neck’ hits, bringing out the WCW North American Champion, Lance Storm! Lance walks out onto the stage, to another mixture of cheers and jeers from Clemson. Lance doesn’t seem to notice, his eyes cold and focused. Storm marches down the entrance ramp, sporting his long red tights with a white maple leaf on the sides and rear. Lance enters the ring, hands his North American Title Belt over to referee Scott Dickenson, and gets ready to wrestle.

Match Three
Jamie Noble vs. Lance Storm
Non-Title Singles Match

As Lance Storm continues to become more and more popular in the eyes of the fans, he got his work horse on, putting on a very good seven plus minute match with Noble. Storm has been requesting to have a match with Jamie TV; thinks they’d work well together, and wants to help Noble get over. That Storm did as the two men went hold-for-hold in the opening minutes of the match, each man locking in unique and painful looking holds, when on their feet and when on the canvas. Noble put up a good fight and showed just how talented he can be, but to no one’s surprise, Storm is the one who came up with the advantage, scoring several quick roll-ups that flustered Noble, causing him to walk right into a northern lights suplex. From there, Storm dominated most of the match, focusing heavily on Noble’s head and neck with leg scissors and various holds and locks, stiff forearm and elbow strikes, hard kicks, and a spree of suplexes that dropped Noble on his head. Lance scored a near fall after a belly-to-back suplex from the second turnbuckle, as well as Super Kick, but Noble shows great resiliency by kicking out of both maneuvers. Noble even got some offense of his own, back flipping out of a German suplex, and almost scoring the victory with a great-looking dragon suplex. However, in the end, Storm fought back, scored with a swinging neck breaker and a few blows to Noble’s neck, and finished him off with a beautiful sit-out brain buster, the same move that he used to defeat Curt Hennig at Halloween Havoc.

Result: Lance Storm def. Jamie Noble at 7.36

After the match, Storm is handed his North American Title Belt, and the Canadian Superstar walks to the back. The cameras follow him as Tenay and Schiavone talk briefly.

Mike Tenay: Tony, Lance Storm is a phenomenal wrestler, and arguably the most underrated talent in WCW! He’s showing just how talented he is day in and day out, and I think it is only a matter of time until he gets truly noticed!

Tony Schiavone: Oh I agree with you one hundred percent, Professor. Lance Storm has slo… what is this!?

The New Proposition Order

The cameras have still been following Lance Storm, but both come to a sudden halt as Lance Storm walks through the curtain to the backstage area. There, only a few feet away from Lance, stand the New World Order; Eric Bischoff, Mike Awesome, Curt Hennig, and KroniK. They all are leaning back against the wall, looking both relaxed and cocky. As Lance wonders what they want with him, Eric steps up to Lance, and starts the conversation.

Eric Bischoff: Lance Storm… just the man we all wanted to see.

Lance looks at the four smirking nWo members, and immediately takes a step back, thinking an attack is about to be launched. Eric however, laughs it off.

Eric Bischoff: No, Lance, we’re not here to beat you down… much of the opposite really. We, the New World Order, have taken a liking of you, Lance. We see just how talented you are, and well, we all have a little something to say to you.

Lance looks on, interested, as Curt Hennig takes a step up.

Curt Hennig: Lance, back on Sunday, you did something I never thought you’d be able to do. You pinned my shoulders to the mat, and you out-wrestled me. Not many people can out-wrestle Curt Hennig.

Mike Awesome: You and me go way back, Lance, all the way to a little thing called ECW. We’ve been there together, and we’ve been Team Canada mates together. And from the very beginning, you’ve impressed me, Lance; you are the real deal.

Brian Adams: And if you ask me and Bryan, you’re the best North American Champion we’ve ever seen.

Eric Bischoff: You see, Lance, you have impressed the New World Order. And when I say the nWo, I don’t just mean these four right here. ‘Hollywood’ Hulk Hogan, he’s impressed with Lance Storm. The WCW World Heavyweight Champion, ‘The Chosen One’ Jeff Jarrett, he is impressed, with you Lance. And most importantly, I, am impressed with you Lance. And Lance, because we’re so impressed with you, we are here, right now. The war is occurring, and it is time to start going in for the kill. We’re not going to wait around for ever until we destroy WCW, the end is near, and it’s time for allegiances to be shown. Lance, you are not an enemy of the nWo, and we don’t want you to be. But it is time for you to show where your allegiances lie. Are you with us, or are you against us? There’s no more middle ground; you’re either nWo, or you’re WCW.

Bischoff stares at Storm, who is in deep thought. Bischoff simply continues, trying to persuade him even more.

Eric Bischoff: WCW is a dying breed, Lance. You and I both know it. Sting is getting old; he’s losing his touch. Booker T, sooner or later these fluke victories of his are going to come to an end, and he’ll be left with nothing. Ric Flair… he’s an old, ungrateful, piece of *shit*! It’s only a matter of time until his sorry ass dies and rots, just like all of WCW. So now, you have to decide if you want to rot with WCW, or if you want to achieve eternal glory… with the New World Order.

Bischoff stares down Storm again, letting his words sink into Lance’s mind. Lance is clearly in deep thought, but his thoughts are broken as Mike Awesome, his former stable mate, tosses Storm a nWo t-shirt. Lance catches it, and looks at it as Awesome tries to persuade Lance now.

Mike Awesome: Lance, take the shirt man. Accept something new into your life. You’ve been walking around here for months, going nowhere fast, because you’ve been too stubborn to get past your ‘Go Canada’ crap. Yeah, you’re from Canada, you love your roots, great, but Lance, you’ve gotta grow up, become a man, and make something out of yourself! Me, I’ve dropped that whole Team Canada crap, and look where it has gotten me. I’m a member of the greatest faction in the history of wrestling, the New World Order. I’m going somewhere with my career; I’m the future of this business because of the nWo, and Eric Bischoff. You can be too, Lance, if you just move away from the low-rate crap you’re stuck in now. Join us, Lance, and I promise you, friend, that you’ll finally be the star we’ve both known you should be.

Lance’s eyes look deep into the shirt, and then at his tights, which have the Canadian maple leaf on it. This is clearly a hard choice for Lance, as he remains silent, his face selling complete confusion as to what he should do. However, at the same time, his eyes almost seem angry.

Eric Bischoff: Lance, we’re not going to press you into a decision. We know how talented you are, but how you’re going nowhere fast. Think about it; tell us next week. We’ll be awaiting your answer, Lance… do what is healthy for yourself… and your career in WCW.

Bischoff’s last words are that of a threat, but he leaves Lance on that note, as he and the rest of the nWo walk off-screen. As the show fades to a break, one more shot is shown of Lance, staring at the nWo shirt in thought.


When Nitro returns, we are backstage, with ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund!

The Good Ole’ Boys

In the backstage interview area, the camera zooms out, revealing ‘The Nature Boy’ Ric Flair on one side of Okerlund, and Sting on the other. Both are dressed for competition; their match is in a few minutes.

Gene Okerlund: Welcome back to Nitro, and let me tell you, it is my utmost privilege to be standing by with these two men next to me, ‘The Nature Boy’ Ric Flair, and Sting! Gentleman, and just a few short moments, you will be facing The Outsiders, Kevin Nash and Scott Hall, in a tag team match. For the both of you, this is a chance at revenge! Sunday at Halloween Havoc, Sting, The Outsiders attacked you during and after your match, and Flair, I know I don’t need to remind you of how The Outsiders cost you the WCW World Heavyweight Title.

Ric Flair: Gene-O, and Clemson University… WOOO! MEAN GENE, no, you don’t have to remind me about Halloween Havoc because let me tell you, everyday is a constant reminder of Halloween Havoc! I showed up, in Flair Country, beat the crap out of Jeff Jarrett, but left empty-handed because of those punks, Nash and Hall. Now Mean Gene, I realized something when I woke up Monday morning, bits of dried blood still on my scalp; there’s no way in hell the nWo are going to let this old man get another crack at Jeff Jarrett for the Title. I’ve accepted it, Gene, but I’m not going to let it go by unscathed. And that means I’m coming after you, Eric Bischoff! You, and, WOOO, HULK HOGAN!

Flair pauses as he starts to get riled up.

Ric Flair: Hollywood Hogan, don’t you think for one minute that I have forgotten about you! Hulk, back in 1993, I brought you into this company! You betrayed me then when you joined the New World Order, and I forgave you. I brought you back a second time, just a few months ago. And again, you turned on me, and this company, and joined the nWo. Well Hulk, I’m not gonna forgive and forget this time! You and me, we’re going to settle our differences in the ring at some point, I promise you that! And Hulk, don’t worry, I’ll let you have some back-up because you’re not the only one I want in our little match. ERIC BISCHOFF, you slimy, cheating, no good son of a *bitch*! I hate you, and you are NOTHING, but VILE! You wanna call me a “piece of *shit*”, huh jackass!? Well you slime ball, if Naitch is that, I don’t even wanna know what your sorry ass is! But Eric, I’ll let you and Hulk know one thing. When I’m out in the ring with The Stinger, kicking The Outsiders’ asses, I’m going to be imagining it is you two. WOOO!

Flair and Sting exchange a double high, high five, as Gene turns his focus over to Sting.

Gene Okerlund: Thank you, Ric, and I hope you have fun with that imagination. I know I would! But now, let me turn to you Sting! Stinger, you’ve been on a wild ride since you made your return to WCW back in August, and now, we both know it, you’re getting your chance to be WCW World Heavyweight Champion again! On November 18, you will enter The Super Cage with Booker T, and two other men, and compete for the chance to wrestle in the main event of Starrcade, for the WCW World Heavyweight Championship! What are your thoughts on that, Stinger?

Sting: GENE-O! It’s great to know that The Stinger is getting another crack at winning the World Heavyweight Title, because everybody knows, that The Stinger is worthy to be Champion, and that The Stinger WILL BE, the Champion! I thank the board of directors for giving me the chance to be in the Super Cage; I’ve waited for my time, and now, it is the Stinger’s time! At Mayhem, I will win the Super Cage match, and at Starrcade, I will defeat Jeff Jarrett for the WCW World Heavyweight Championship! And now, if you excuse us, Gene-O… IT’S SHOWTIME FOLKS!

Flair and Sting both grab the mic, and shout into it.

Both: WOOO!

The two men leave the interview area as the cameras cuts back to the commentary booth quickly before the main event gets underway.

Tony Schiavone: Professor, Ric Flair and Sting are two men ready for action!

Mike Tenay: Definitely! I know both men are ready for their match with The Outsiders, but they also are looking ahead to the future. Ric Flair, he got screwed out of the World Heavyweight Title three nights ago at Halloween Havoc, but he’s not going to sulk about it. Not a legend like Ric Flair! He’s going to take action, and take it out on two men he has a score to settle with, Eric Bischoff and Hulk Hogan! Bischoff tried to embarrass and humiliate Flair for years, and Hogan turned his back on The Nature Boy after Flair brought Hogan back to WCW. It’s time for Naitch to get some pay back! And he’s going to get him some tonight, in Flair Country!

Tony Schiavone: And Sting is going to be right beside him, helping him take on The Outsiders! And The Stinger, he’ll be facing one of these men at Mayhem in the Super Cage! It’s going to be one of the best main events I can remember on Nitro, and it’s going to start, right now!

Now that Tony has gotten his over-hype done for the main event, a loud ‘HOOOOOWWWLLL’ hits the sound system, bringing out The Outsiders, ‘Big Sexy’ Kevin Nash and ‘The Bad Guy’ Scott Hall, to a mixture of pops and boos. Both are decked out in Wolfpack t-shirts, while Hall has a black and red banana in his hair to match his black trunks that say ‘Outsiders’ on the rear, in red. Nash has his usual black pants on, with the singlet going underneath it. The two strut down the entrance ramp, playing with the crowd as they do so. The Outsiders get into the ring, and the fans start to scream as ‘Seek And Destroy’ by Metallica hits, bringing out ‘The Man Called’ Sting. Sting is in his usual black pants and singlet, much like Nash, except less baggy of pants, and the black trench coat. Sting twirls his black baseball bat as he marches down the entrance ramp, pointing it at The Outsiders. Sting enters the ring as ‘Sprach Zarathursta’ hits, bringing the crowd to their feet, screaming and cheering, for ‘The Nature Boy’ Ric Flair (sans Arn Anderson). Flair has a blue and white gown on, with light blue trunks. Ric stands on the entrance stage for a few moments, twirling on the stage, soaking in the loud cheers. Many of the college students are bending over and hailing Flair. Flair has an ear-to-ear grin on his face as he walks down the ramp and enters the ring, ready to give Flair Country even more to cheer for. All four men discard their entrance gear, and get ready to wrestle as Nick Patrick orders for the match to start.

Main Event
Ric Flair & Sting vs. The Outsiders
Tag Team Match

Wow… we’re back in 1998 folks! An influx of the ‘old guard’ have returned to WCW over the past few months; Hennig, Hogan, the nWo as an entity, and now, The Outsiders. You would think WCW is going down a path it never should be going down again, but it’s a different path this one. Surprisingly, the return of these stars have brought in more and more ratings for WCW. Anyways, Ric Flair and Scott Hall started this match off, going through some simple holds, followed by The Nature Boy “chopping down the redwood”, connecting with a plethora of knife edge chops to Hall, heavily reddening Hall’s hairy chest. Flair’s chops let him gain a steady advantage early on, and Naitch proceeded to work over Hall, hitting some more chops when Hall was backed into the corner, plus some well-placed jabs. A few suplexes and knee drops followed, and the infamous strut, much to the delight of Flair Country. Slick Ric made the tag out to Sting, who continued to work over Hall, hitting some chops and punches of his own in the corner, but a sneaky eye poke by Hall allowed him to catch his breath, and connect with a suplex to take the advantage for his team, and tag out to Kevin Nash.

As Nash entered the match past the four minute mark, the pace started to slow down immensely as Big Sexy used his large frame to work over The Stinger. Slow, but big, right hands connected, as well as elbow shots in the corner. For the next five plus minutes The Outsiders dominated Sting mainly, making tags to keep each other fresh, and pounding away on Sting in the corner. The Outsiders almost won the match on several occasions; Nash twice with a big boot and sidewalk slam, Hall with a fall away slam and modified choke slam. However, Sting would either kick out, or much to the crowd’s delight, Ric Flair would come in and break up the count. The Stinger fought back no matter what though, and almost made the hot tag to Flair after hitting Nash with a DDT, but Scott Hall came in and prevented the tag. Eventually though, The Outsiders slipped up, as Kevin Nash missed a big boot attempt, allowing Sting to score huge with the Scorpion Death Drop. As both men slowly recovered and crawled to their corners, Nash made the tag to Hall, and Sting made the hot, hot, tag to Ric Flair, sending Clemson into a frenzy.

With the crowd strongly behind him, Ric Flair did a number on Hall, firing off multiple knife edge chops, sending Hall staggering and then down. A few jabs knocked down The Bad Guy as well, bringing in Nash, only to get knocked back into the corner after numerous knife edge chops. Flair kept up at his pace, firing off hard knife edge’s and jabs, until Ric eventually scored with a big DDT to Hall. A cover was made, and as the crowd anticipated the three, Big Sexy broke it up. Kevin Nash immediately tried to work over Ric with some forearm strikes, but into the ring came Sting, who floored Nash with a clothesline, sending him to the outside of the ring, rolling under the bottom rope. Sting followed, and the two settled into a brawl on the outside of the ring. Back in the ring, Hall regained the control thanks to Nash’s interference, and went for The Outsider’s Edge, but the sneaky Flair scored with a low blow, mule kick style, a thumb to the eye, and then three more knife edge chops. As Slick Ric called for the Figure Four Leg Lock, ‘New World Order’ hit, bringing out Eric Bischoff to the stage, smirking at Flair. As Ric shouted out insults to Eric, Eric continued to distract him, throwing out rude gestures and insults. This gave Hall enough time to recover, and already being behind Flair, easily scored with a low blow, and then The Outsider’s Edge to score the big pin fall victory.

Result: The Outsiders def. Ric Flair & Sting at 12:14

The bell rings, but chaos is still going on at ringside. Outside of the ring, Kevin Nash whips Sting into the steel ring steps, and re-enters the ring, and joins in with Scott Hall in stomping on Ric Flair…

The Big Ending

The Outsiders, Kevin Nash and Scott Hall, start laying into Ric Flair with hard stomps to his ribs, back, and sides, weakening The Nature Boy. The crowd boos, not happy with seeing Flair get beaten down like this in Flair Country. Meanwhile, Eric Bischoff is still standing on the entrance stage, grinning as he watches the events unfold in the ring. The Outsiders continue to assault Ric Flair for almost another half-minute, until Sting rolls back into the ring and tries to fend off The Outsiders. As The Outsiders start to toss right hands at Sting, ‘New World Order’ hits again, and Eric Bischoff grins even more as ‘The Career Killer’ Mike Awesome, Curt Hennig, KroniK, and the WCW World Heavyweight Champion, ‘The Chosen One’ Jeff Jarrett, carrying both his Title Belt and guitar, walk out from the backstage, and stand side-by-side with Bischoff. As Nash knocks Sting down with a clothesline, Eric Bischoff throws his arms at the ring, and the 5 New World Order members start marching down the ramp towards the ring. Eric Bischoff walks down too, but stops right at the ring as KroniK, Awesome, Hennig, and Jarrett surround the ring. Jarrett removes his Title Belt and tosses it to the corner of the ring near him, so he can wield his guitar better. Bischoff starts shouting commands, and the 5 nWo member’s dive into the ring.

Right away, Jarrett drops his guitar as he makes a bee line for Kevin Nash, his opponent for next week. Mike Awesome runs at Scott Hall, KroniK make their way over to Sting as he tries to get to his feet, and Curt Hennig continues the attack The Outsiders started on Flair, who is also trying to get to his feet. Hall drops Awesome with a low blow and clothesline almost right away, just as Jarrett does the same to Nash. Jarrett grins and turns to attack Hall, the other man he has openly admitted to wanting to beat down, only for Hall to break Jarrett’s guitar over his head! The crowd cheers as Jeff Jarrett drops to the canvas, part of the guitar hanging over his head. The odds are still favored for the nWo, as The Outsiders and Flair & Sting can’t work together to take out the New World Order. Help comes soon though as ‘Can You Dig It Sucka!?’ hits to a loud pop, bringing Booker T out onto the entrance stage! He isn’t alone though; The Andersons, Arn and Cal Anderson, and the WCW Tag Team Champions, ‘The Young Lions’ Chuck Palumbo and Sean O’Haire are with him! The 5 WCW loyalists all charge down the entrance ramp and slide into the ring, and the massive brawl only gets bigger!

Chaos wreaks havoc everywhere, as The Young Lions and KroniK brawl with each other, slipping to the outside of the ring by the entrance ramp. Mike Awesome and Sting exchange right hands in one part of the ring, while Booker T and Kevin Nash duke it out, as do Ric Flair and Scott Hall. Jeff Jarrett is still down, but is slowly recovering, as The Young Lions and KroniK continue their brawl on the outside. ‘The New Enforcer’ Cal Anderson and Curt Hennig join in on the outside next to the two tag teams. They’ve been brawling on the outside, and now have made their way to the two tag teams, while ‘Double A’ Arn Anderson chases Eric Bischoff around the ring. Jeff Jarrett finally gets up to his feet, the six men in the ring still brawling, unbeknownst to them. As Jeff plans to launch a sneak attack on Scott Hall, the crowd EXPLODES as ‘Holla If Ya Hear Me’ hits, and ‘Big Poppa Pump’ Scott Steiner comes out onto the entrance stage, sans Midajah, wielding a lead pipe! Wearing just blue jeans, Steiner hits the lead pipe into the palm of his left hand, and then charges down the entrance ramp!

The crowd cheers as Steiner reaches the bottom of the ramp, KroniK, The Young Lions, Curt Hennig, and Cal Anderson in his way. Steiner doesn’t waste anytime swinging the pipe, drilling Brian Adams in the chest, and Bryan Clarke right in the head! Cal Anderson charges, and he gets dropped after a shot to the gut and then the back! Chuck Palumbo comes after Steiner, and gets hits with a hard elbow strike and a shot to the chest with the pipe! Curt Hennig charges next, and Steiner drops him with a shot right to the face with the pipe! Sean O’Haire takes a wild swing at Steiner, but Big Poppa Pump ducks, rams the pipe in his mid-section, and then hoists O’Haire into the air and power bombs him on the concrete floor! The crowd is cheering like crazy for Steiner, and those cheers only get louder as he enters the ring! The six men are still brawling with another, not caring about what else is going on, leaving Scott Steiner to lock eyes with Jeff Jarrett! Steiner charges right at Jarrett, and jabs the pipe into Jeff’s gut! Steiner drops the pipe as The Chosen One doubles over, and Steiner tosses Jeff Jarrett OVER the top rope to the outside with an overhead belly-to-belly suplex!

Steiner roars intensely, fired up as he picks up his pipe. Mike Awesome immediately abandons his battle with Sting once Steiner makes his way over to him, and Big Poppa Pump drops Awesome with a pipe shot to the skull! Meanwhile, Ric Flair goes down from a Scott Hall low blow, as does Booker T from a Kevin Nash eye poke and clothesline! Scott Hall charges Steiner, but a lead pipe to the chest stops him! Steiner takes a quick swing at Nash after hitting Hall, and connects to Nash’s hip before he can block it! Kevin Nash staggers back into a corner, and out of nowhere comes Sting, leaping into the air and squashing Nash with the Stinger Splash! Before Sting can turn around, Steiner hits him in the back of the head with the lead pipe! Everyone is down, both inside and outside the ring (sans Anderson and Bischoff, who are merely encouraging their guys at this point), except Scott Steiner! Steiner raises the pipe into the air, and then notices something he’s been wanting since March 26, 2001; the WCW World Heavyweight Title Belt! As Jeff Jarrett, Booker T, Ric Flair, and The Outsider start getting to their feet, Scott Steiner rolls to the side of the ring, grabbing the WCW World Heavyweight Title! Steiner rolls outside of the ring, Title Belt and pipe in hand, and exits the ringside area through the crowd! Eric Bischoff makes a leap to try and stop him, but Steiner is already over the barrier, and Bischoff flops chest first onto the concrete floor! Jeff Jarrett rolls out of the ring and hops the guard rail, trying to chase Steiner, but he is already too far away! In the ring, Booker T, Ric Flair, The Outsiders and Sting all get to their feet and stare each other down, while the cameras focus on ‘Big Poppa Pump’ Scott Steiner standing in the crowd, raising the World Title Belt into the air.

Tony Schiavone: Oh my God, Professor! This is unbelievable! Scott Steiner not only beat down The Outsiders, WCW, and the nWo, but he has STOLEN the WCW World Heavyweight Title Belt! This might be the biggest moment EVER on Wednesday Nitro!

Yeah, but so was Johnny Stamboli’s turning on Big Vito, right?

Mike Tenay: This is a huge… shocking, turn of events here on Nitro! There’s been pandemonium everywhere tonight! It’s Halloween, and there has been some strange happenings tonight, such as what we just witnessed! However, we are out of time ladies and gentleman! I hope you all enjoyed the show tonight, and have a good night! For Tony Schiavone, I am Mike Tenay! So long, and Happy Halloween!

Re: WCW 2001- The Trio Ownership

Paranoia In The nWo Camp & The Super Cage Details Revealed - I like how you say nWo camp, makes it sound like their "the enemy" or something like that. Anyway, great promo to open the show. Super Cage sounds sick, can't wait for it at Mayhem.

Jack Evans (w/Teddy Hart) vs. Shane Helms (w/Sugar Babies) - Decent match here, with some pretty good action. DQ finish is somewhat expected in this match, due to all the help outside. Tension between Crazy and Helms? Sounds like this could turn into some kind of mulitple man match for the title.

After A Stellar Match, The Paint Dries - Lol, nice title to the promo. Kidman seemed fired up, I can't say if he was in character because I cannot remember back to 2001. Anyway, Konnan was DEFINITLEY in character, and good job not butchering his lines. They were dead on and were spelled correctly. Not many bookers do this, but you're on of the elite so it is expected.

Filthy Animals (w/Tygress) vs. Mamalukes - Good tag match. Johnny The Bull turn!? That was somewhat unexpected I guess. Aftermath was pretty cool, with Stamboli obviously fed up with being 'held down.' Always see those storylines in real life, and I'm interested to see where this goes.

Outsiders In Da House - Ahh, my favorite part of WCW. The Wolfpac. Good promo here, HAHAHA. That was great, with them looking like they're gonna kill each other, and then playing rock, papers, scissors. That got me laughing. Good job.

Jamie Noble vs. Lance Storm - Great match here, might've wanted to see a title match here, but besides that good match. Storm winning was the right choice. Good job there.

The New Proposition Order - Ah, the old proposition angle. Storm seems persauded to join, but keeps thinking about the other options. Looking forward to see where he goes.

The Good Ole’ Boys - Great promo here. Flair and Sting seemed fired up for tonight. The promo does a great job of hyping the main event. Good job with this one, hope they win.

Outsiders vs Sting/Ric Flair - Like you said, we're back in 1998!! Great main event, told a story and did it's job. Glad to see the Outsiders win, and then what!? A HUGE BRAWL TO END THE SHOW! Now it REALLY seems like 1998 lol. Damn, it was hard to keep up with everything. Booker comes out after the nWo and the Wolfpac start going at it. They look to clear the ring, but they all stay in the ring. STEINER!! Here he comes baby! Steiner cleans house and takes the title! Oh what an ending!!

Overall: Excellent show Szumi. You have got yourself a stay put reader of this thread. Great job and can't wait to see the road to Mayhem.

Re: WCW 2001- The Trio Ownership

Deadman_014's Nitro Review

Jarrett & Bischoff Promo: Great opening promo, the Super Cage is going to be AWESOME. I know what it is, I saw it once, and its going to be fun to read. I think Jeff really is going to lose at Starrcade, the mystery guy is probably a returning superstar or a debuting one. I personally think its someone, I think you let me know in a way it is him, so I won't put it but Im wrong anyways probably lol.

Evans vs Helms: I enjoyed this match, it was good. I think the aftermath was most interesting, I can see a Jack Evans vs Super Crazy vs Shane Helms CW Title match next PPV. The aftermath was very good, hyping a turn really much by Helms, and this is very enjoyable start.

Filthy Animals Interview: Good interview, a liked Kidman more then Konnan, he seems like the lower half to Kidman with his big feud with Rey. Good stuff here bud, very enjoyable so far in the show.

Animals vs Mamalukes: Very interesting, the match got the Animals a squash win, and Vito gets taken out by Johnny which will make for a good match. The aftermath was strong, and Bull got some good comments in and left good stuff here as well.

Wolfpac Promo: This was good, I found most of the first part to be good, though a bit to many ` and stuff tell me which key makes you do those " things sideways and stuff I don't know how. Anyways, I found it pretty damn funny with the Rock Paper Sizzors. I bet Scott Hall goes in between them into the Super Cage, since Nash gets Jarrett, Hall gets the super cage spot probably this was good.

Noble vs Storm:
Storm I think is majorly over after Halloween Havoc's huge victory, and he continues his strong push to move on to another squash & victory tonight. The nWo wants Storm? That was pretty good, though I think Lance won't join the nWo, I think he'll continue and turn face and feud them. Good stuff though, the show has been wickid so far...

Flair & Sting Interview:
Solid build for the main event, both very in character, and I can see Sting vs Jarrett at Starrcade easy, but I expect a very unexpected match for Starrcade. Very good promo to build the main event, the show has been good so far, but seemingly missing a match but meh its alright.

Main Event:
Awesome ending, I guess it is "Show - Time" time for the show to end lmao. Good ending here, very long and solid, nWo, Outsiders, Steiner ends up coming out even at the end. Very interesting turn of events, and the commentators end it well.

Very solid show, you hit this well, a bit short in my mind. Not in total length, promo wise it was long enough, and the length of the matchs were fine. But it seems like there needed to be one more match, the ending made up for time wise being a bit short for the show but all in all very good. 88/100, good score for ya mate this keeps me reading, ill check out the next show for sure later dude now I've completed the return for your nice Rumble review that I once again thank ya for dude...

Re: WCW 2001- The Trio Ownership

Okay buddy, here is my review of Nitro

Opening backstage segment:
extremely well written and very unpreditable. I enjoyed Jarrett's pranoia and the match announcement rules, I cannot wait to see that match at Mayhem. I'm hoping Hall goes in the cage personally, he is a better wrestler than Nash and I wanna see him win the world title that he never has before the end of his career (hint, hint lol).
wow, Bisch is reallt stressed, he doesnt wanna get in trouble with the nwo, i have a feeling it will be sting vs flair in a match, winner enters the supercage

Segment: 9/10- very realistic and interesting to read/watch

Match 2: "Sugar" Shane Helms Vs Jack Evans

This was a great little match, and Evans kicks ass in the ring I think. I would love to have seen him win with the 630, but oh well. The aftermath was interesting, I like how you are building a storyline between Super Crazy and Helms, it seems like a love/hate relastionship lol, will Helms ever accept Super? I can't wait to see where this goes

Match rating: 8/10- Great match and aftermath

Match 2: Mamalukes Vs Filthy Animals

Decent action in this one, and the crowd seemed to enjoy it. I really hope The Mamalukes don't split, cos what would they do on thier own. Uh-oh, it appears they have split, and The Bull is cutting a promo on Vito. Wow, maybe Stamboli will be cool on hsi own, It appears u will give him a singles push. I predict vito will leave town at Mayhem.

Match rating: 7/10- Nice turn for Bull, I look forward to his singles run.

Outsiders Segment

Nash and Hall at thier comicalbest, a very funny segment, and I can't wait to see Nash/Double J next week

Segement Rating: 9/10 - Outsiders were very much in character and it was a very enjoyable promo by both.

Match 3: Lance Storm Vs Jamie Knoble

A decent match, Storm goes backstage and.... NwO! Oh oh, will they beat him up. They all want him to join, and I personally think Storm should stay in WCW and be a babyface leader against the Order.

Match and segement rating:10/10- perfectly done match and segement

Main event: Scott Hall and Kevin Nash Vs the Outsiders

Wow, what a match. I agree, if WCW is booked well, the old guys can still be the big guns, as long as they dont massacre the younger guys. Very entertaining match, but the aftermath was better. I loved it when Bischoff sent his troops to the ring, it was like the battle lines for a war! I love how the wolfpac have been injected into this war, and Scott Steiner stole the belt! I think that he will keep the belt away from Jarrett until the ppv, I think. Lovely way to end the show, It left you wanting more.

Match and aftermath rating: 10/10- One of the best main events you've done, I loved it!

Overall: I think this is one of the best shows you've ever done szumi, I was entertained all the way through, and all the matches were enterataning, I loved it!

The good: the matches, and the end of the show, plus the backstage segments
The bad: Vito's career situation right now
The Ugly: Nothing, nothing was really bad on this show, even what i said was bad wasn't a problem

Show rating: 10/10 loved it!

p.s soz for the friction between us after my halloween havoc review, I hope we have cleared the air, and I hope you will return this review. Peace man

Re: WCW 2001- The Trio Ownership

Tag match starts the show, and this should mean that we are going to get some high flying, fast paced action, which is always good to see. And so it is, with seconds into the match, the first spot happens, which tells me this is going to be a spotty, which I suppose the opener should be. Helms and Crazy are clearly not together, and the heel turn from one of them will be happening soon. The work on Crazy was pretty good, and kept the match moving along, even though at times it felt a little bit disjointed when the action went outside the ring. Helms has the match won, but he is pinning the wrong guy, which was a nice spot to have. Hart Attack 2.0 looks to be a very cool move, and gets the win for the Harts. Good opener to the show, and wasn’t too spotty to be verging on a spot fest. Good start, and keeps the Harts looking strong. Helms then turns heel, which I could see coming, and now sets up a good feud over the cruiserweight belt. 1 match, 1 heel turn… par for the course for WCW…

Surprised there was nothing between the matches, but this triple threat should be a very good one. Slow start to the match tells me that this is going to get some time to it, which will be good to see, as it will get these men over if the match is good. Anderson is the man who the crowd are behind, and he has been booked effectively so far, taking down both the heels when he can. Storm and Hennig have to team together to take him down, which really puts Anderson over as a threat. The double teaming ends when Anderson looks out, and now we get to see Storm and Hennig go at it, which was pretty good stuff. Nice use of the triple suplex spot in the match, which most triple threats seem to have these days. Nice comedy with Storm playing possum on Anderson, and then hennig doing the same to Storm when he goes for the super kick. In the end, a brainbuster gets the win for Storm, and he keeps the title. A great match here, not quite as good as the over selling of the commentators said, but definitely in the 3 &#189; stars plus range. Anderson is the guy to take the title off Storm though, and it will happen probably at the next ppv

Okay Steiner promo, but I’ve never been into him on the mic. Him winning tonight is a lock, and is bound to happen

Kronik vs. Lions will be okay, but won’t be able to touch the first two matches in terms of quality. To be honest, I never got into this match, as it was the same kind of match that we have seen from them before, and there was nothing to make it stand out, as the Lions were always the favourites to win the match. There was nothing too bad in this match, but it was pretty formulaic, but that it was normally happens in this kind of match. Nice win though for the Lions, who looked strong in the finish of the match, but there has to be new challengers now

AT least there is a gimmick to cover the fact that Steiner isn’t that good in the ring. An okay start to the match, and good to see Steiner staying as a tweener by playing the face role, but telling the crowd he doesn’t care what they think. Only thing is, I don’t know how much longer this can be drawn out before he chooses a side, but thinking about it, it can go for a long, long, while. A lot of lariats used in the match, but that is to be expected. Steiner goes through a table, but it doesn’t count, which is the kind of thing I expected to see in the match, because it gets the crowd into it. Awesome then does the same thing, in a sequence that was good to read, and would have been good for the match. Awesome has the match won, but is too cocky, and this results in Steiner getting back into it and getting the win. This match was better than I thought it would be, as tables matches are very 1 dimensional, and I didn’t think there would be enough in ring talent to carry the match, but it was booked pretty well. Still, 3rd best match of the night though, and could perhaps have done with being a couple of minutes shorter

THE OUTSIDERS!!! Now that was a bit of a shock, but thinking about it, I should have seen them coming as they and the NWO go together. Good promo from them, and they are back as tweeners I think, as they declare war on the new world order, yet want to take it over. Hall vs. Sting should be a good start for them

Interesting match between them here, which was okay I felt, but had something missing to it, but I can’t quite put my finger on what it was. At times it maybe felt a bit too bland (probably not the word I’m thinking of), even though the action was good. Nice use of Nash on the outside doing pep talks and tripping Sting which made the match that bit better. Sting has the match won, but Nash comes in and draws the DQ, which pretty much means that Sting is going to be their first target. Outsiders are momentary heels, which is probably how they should be, and I guess for the moment, they are going to be the same as Steiner as tweeners who want to kick everyone’s ass

Solid promo from Jarrett who hypes the title match, but nothing more than that. Guessing that it will be overbooked with lots of run ins to make it a good match

Kidman vs. Rey was probably the best match of the night so far, and the no count outs stip worked well for the match as it allowed them to do all kinds of things around the arena and for the spots to be sold properly. Great to see Kidman get the advantage at the start, as he is the one who is getting revenge, and so should be beating people up. Loving the missile dropkick off the stage, which would have been perfect to see, and adds to the intensity of the match. The Back Flip off the stage beforehand was great as well. Running hurricanarana and the shooting star were also great moments, and this has allowed both men to show what they can do, although Kidman has maybe had a bit too much of the control of the match. Rey rolls away from the shooting star which would have won the match, and then gets a chair, which may feature in the finish of the match I think now. Rey has the 450 countered, but then gets himself DQed in what would be very disappointing to see. Obviously, this is a set up for a no count out, no DQ match, but after 21 minutes, ending a match like this with a DQ, especially as the last match was also a DQ is a big disappointment. This match was very good, but the ending was a let down really.

Booker cuts a solid promo, which hypes the main event, which is going to suck as an in ring match, but the crowd may be able to save it. Booker vs. Hogan just doesn’t strike as the kind of match that will work

Nice start to this match, and it should be a solid encounter between these two men. Surprised to see Jarrett be busted open so early, but I suppose it means that Flair has a bit more of an advantage. Jarrett dominates, and very good use of the plant, which I haven’t seen done too often in BTB. Flair comes back and hits a ddt, but Bischoff pulls the referee out of the ring. Awesome and Kronik then come out, and Eric makes it no DQ, so they can all beat the hell out of Flair. Flair though manages to fight back, and take down to NWO, which would be great to see. Jarrett though hits the stroke, but Flair kicks out, which would be great to see. Eric nails Flair with the chair, and then, the outsiders come out to presumably level the odds up… but this is WCW, so it means a random heel turn is in order??? Yep, Nash and Hall swerve us and turn heel on Flair, and give Jarrett the win, as he still cannot get a clean win. Jarrett is still being booked as the heel who needs all the help to win, and effectively, a fluke champion, while the NWO is on the verge of becoming too large, with too many big names in it

Hogan vs. Booker ends the show, and I’m sure that Booker gets the win, as otherwise it makes a lot more sense to have closed with the outsiders swerve. Booker gets a shock Bookend in early, but Hogan has to kick out, as he wont be the one to look that weak. Booker is dominating this match so far, but we all know that Hogan is going to fight back, and here comes the hulking up of doom… big boot, leg drop, and Booker kicks out, which is has to do if he is to be the man in the promotion. Hogan is shocked, and gets the belt, but Booker hits the axe kick, which takes both men out. Booker though capatalises on Hogan being too cocky, and nails the Bookend and the harlem hangover, and gets a shock, clean win over Hogan. LMAO at Schiavone’s comments, as it was an okay match, but not even the best match of the last hour, let alone ever. It was okay, but you were never going to get a great match out of these two, but it was passable, and gets Booker over as the huge face who wins the title back soon I presume.

Overall, a pretty good ppv, with some very good matches on it, and probably the best in the thread so far, but at times it felt as if it was setting up for the next ppv with some of the results.

Re: WCW 2001- The Trio Ownership

WCW Wednesday Nitro Preview- November 7, 2001

World Championship Wrestling will host its next primetime edition of Wednesday Nitro on NBC this Wednesday night at 8 PM EST from the Memorial Gymnasium, in Nashville, Tennessee!! Join “The Voice of WCW” Tony Schiavone and “The Professor” Mike Tenay for another two-hour, action packed edition of World Championship Wrestling!

The main event is already signed and seal for tonight, so now, we just have to watch it deliver! ‘The Chosen One’ Jeff Jarrett challenged The Outsiders to a match for Nitro, and even said he’d put the Belt on the line to get the match. That challenge was answered by ‘Big Sexy’ Kevin Nash, and now the two will square off in this mega-main event! Jeff has showed signs of a different person ever since being “humiliated” by The Outsiders at Halloween Havoc, and now, this match is about a sense of pride for Jarrett. The Chosen One would like to be able to defeat Kevin Nash all by himself tonight, but as usual with the New World Order, is this the truth, or just a sly trick by Jarrett and his nWo cronies? Also, what factor will ‘The Bad Guy’ Scott Hall have in the Title match!? All of this will unfold only on Wednesday Nitro!

One other factor for tonight’s main event is where will the WCW World Heavyweight Title Belt be!? At the conclusion of last week’s show, ‘Big Poppa Pump’ Scott Steiner stormed the ring, clearing house on both nWo and WCW members, before attacking Jarrett. To end his attack, Steiner stole the World Title Belt! WCW President Eric Bischoff has been fuming all week over this incident, and wants the Title back! Will Steiner hand over the World Heavyweight Title Belt!? Or will Steiner cause mayhem for Eric Bischoff once again? Find out on Nitro!

Speaking of Bischoff, last week the President offered WCW North American Champion Lance Storm a spot in the New World Order. ‘The Career Killer’ Mike Awesome, Curt Hennig, and KroniK, all attempted to persuade Storm as well, and now we will hear from Storm! Will Storm become one of the many superstars who have been able to call themselves an nWo member? Or will Lance Storm become allied with the company that has made him a star, WCW? One can never tell with the success-minded Storm, as he is the kind of man to turn his back on something for success. It is the moment of truth for Lance Storm, on Nitro!

Also on Nitro, Konnan takes on The Wall! ‘The Insane Luchadore’ Super Crazy continues his war against the Flying Harts when he takes on Teddy Hart! The WCW Tag Team Champions, The Young Lions, are in action! Plus appearances by ‘Sugar’ Shane Helms, Billy Kidman and Tygress, ‘The Nature Boy’ Ric Flair, the New World Order and ‘Hollywood’ Hulk Hogan, and much, much more! 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:

WCW World Heavyweight Title- Jeff Jarrett © vs. Kevin Nash
Alex Wright & Disco Inferno vs. The Young Lions
Konnan vs. The Wall
Super Crazy vs. Teddy Hart

Keep the reviews coming for Nitro! All reviews that I owe shall be returned tonight.

Re: WCW 2001- The Trio Ownership

World Championship Wrestling
Wednesday Nitro
Memorial Gymnasium, Nashville, Tennessee
November 7, 2001



Tony Schiavone: Welcome ladies and gentleman, to WCW Wednesday Nitro! I am Tony Schiavone, and alongside me, as always, is ‘The Professor’ Mike Tenay! Mike, what can the fans be expecting tonight!?

Mike Tenay: They can expect a lot tonight, Tony! The war in the cruiserweight division continues on as the third generation-superstar Teddy Hart takes on ‘The Insane Luchadore’ Super Crazy! Plus, the WCW Tag Team Champions, The Young Lions, Chuck Palumbo and Sean O’Haire, are in tag team action against Boogie Knights, ‘Das Wonderkin’ Alex Wright and Disco Inferno! Also, Konnan takes on The Wall, and we will here from Lance Storm! Will Lance Storm become a member of the New World Order, or not!?

Tony Schiavone: And how could anyone forget this big main event we have tonight!? The WCW World Heavyweight Championship will be on the line as ‘The Chosen One’ Jeff Jarrett defends against ‘Big Sexy’ Kevin Nash! Professor, this is going to be the biggest night in the history of WCW!

Mike Tenay: Well a lot is certainly riding on the WCW World Heavyweight Title match tonight. If Jeff Jarrett can defeat Kevin Nash, then he just might be able to prove that he can be a solid, legitimate World Champion, but what if Kevin Nash wins!? If Kevin Nash wins the World Title, and the power goes to the Wolfpack, what will be in store for WCW and the nWo!? You have to wonder what is going through each man’s mind right now, so let’s take a look! Shall we!?

The cameras cut to a split-screen. On the left side, Jeff Jarrett is in a room all by himself. The lights are dimmed, and Jeff is sitting on a stool, his face in his hands, the WCW World Heavyweight Title Belt visibly absent. Jeff sits up and starts pacing, looking very nervous, yet there is a certain fire in his eyes that tells the world how badly he wants Kevin Nash. On the right side of the screen, Nash and Hall are playing WCW/nWo Revenge from the Nintendo 64. Nash is himself, Hall is a created Jeff Jarrett. Nash is whooping up on Jarrett in the game, while Hall isn’t really even playing. The controller sits on his lap while he sips from a red plastic cup and makes cries of agony, pretending to be Jeff Jarrett.

Tony Schiavone: Well I think that tells the story pretty much, Professor!

Mike Tenay: Yes, yes it does. On one side, you have ‘Big Sexy’ Kevin Nash, cool, calm, and collected. Of course he wants to win the WCW World Heavyweight Title tonight, but it shows he isn’t stressing himself out about it. He is going to have a good time tonight, but when it is time to wrestle, Kevin Nash will do exactly that. However, Jeff Jarrett, is a stressed and nervous train wreck, for lack of better words. He’s been under a lot of pressure ever since becoming WCW World Heavyweight Champion; everyone wants his Title, and his blood, he is in a war that can and will change the face of this company and industry, and he has two Outsiders humiliating him left and right. However, that has seemingly changed Jeff a bit! We heard him last week, and he’s been saying it all this week, he wants The Outsiders, especially Kevin Nash! They made a mockery of him at Halloween havoc, and again last week on Nitro! Well, Jeff, you get your chance tonight to prove to the world you are a fighting champion, and a real champion, not a coward hiding behind the back of the New World Order!

Tony Schiavone: You hit the nail right on the head with Jeff Jarrett, Professor! He’s stressed out for all of those reasons, and tonight could definitely be the night Jeff Jarrett proves himself to everyone in this company as a real man, not some snide coward. However, the question that has to be on everybody’s mind, where is the WCW World Heavyweight Championship Belt!? ‘Big Poppa Pump’ Scott Steiner stole the Title Belt last week on Nitro as the show came to a close, and we have no idea where it is! That has to be an even bigger attribute to The Chosen One’s stress!

As if on cue, this leads into our first segment of the night!

The Title Belt = The Power

The crowd pretty much explodes into cheers (although there still are some noticeable boos, for he is a tweener) as ‘Holla If Ya Hear Me’ hits, bringing out ‘Big Poppa Pump’ Scott Steiner. Oh, but Scotty’s looking a little different tonight. He’s in a Big Poppa Pump tee and jeans, plus the medieval style chain plate on his head (and lead pipe tucked in the back of his jeans pocket). However, no Midajah again tonight, but he does have something on his shoulder that is much better than Midajah… the WCW World Heavyweight Title Belt. This sends the crowd into a frenzy once they see the Title Belt on his shoulder. He proudly raises it into the air as he walks down the entrance ramp. Steiner enters the ring and immediately grabs the microphone from David Penzer. He removes the shades that I forgot to mention he was wearing, hanging them on his shirt. Steiner can’t help but grin as he looks at the Title Belt.

Scott Steiner: Here’s a message to all my freaks… look whose wearing the gold!

This gets a cheap pop from the crowd, to nobody’s surprise.

Scott Steiner: Ya know, last week was a freakin’ glorious week! When all those bitches from WCW and the nWo were brawlin’ and havin’ their bitch fight, here came Big Poppa Pump, wieldin’ his pipe, knockin’ out some jack asses with it, and most importantly, kickin’ the sh** out of Jeff Jarrett! And to make it all the freakin’ greatest, I took back what’s rightfully mine… the WCW World Heavyweight Title!

More cheers from the crowd.

Scott Steiner: Me and all my freaks know that I’ve been screwed out of winning back this Belt ever since I lost it seven months ago! Booker T, yeah you got lucky back on March 26 punk, and ever since there, Eric Bischoff has made sure Big Poppa Pump never got this belt back in his possession! And with Jeff Jarrett as his champion, those two dick heads aren’t gonna just give the Big Bad Booty Daddy a Title shot when they know that Jeff Jarrett, like every other douche bag in WCW, fears me! But guess what!? Scott Steiner’s the one holdin’ the World Title right now, and Bischoff, you and I both know what that means; I got the power! So it is time that all the punk asses here in this company start listenin’ to what the Genetic Freak’s gotta say!

Steiner pauses, licking his lips and cracking his neck. He repositions the World Title Belt on his shoulder, and looks at it while he starts to talk.

Scott Steiner: Comin’ up in less than two weeks, November 18… Mayhem… the Super Cage returns. Four men enter, only one man wins. Whoever reaches the top of the triple-decker wins the whole damn thing, the thing every person wants in this company… main eventin’ Starrcade for the WCW World Heavyweight Title! So far, Booker T and Sting, they’re already in the match, and either Scott Hall or Kevin Nash gets a guaranteed slot. But the fourth man, well it hasn’t been decided who is going to get that fourth spot. Bischoff, bein’ the stupid, slimy, piece of *shit* weasel that he is, thinks he can stop Big Poppa Pump from gettin’ into the Super Cage! Well Bischoff, I got some friggin’ news for you, jack ass! If you ever wanna see this World Title back in your champion’s hands, you’re gonna start listenin’ to what I gotta say, and put me in the damn Super Cage!

The crowd cheers, as Steiner simply nods his head to the cheers. After a few moments, ‘New World Order’ hits, and the crowd starts to boo as the WCW President, Eric Bischoff, walks out onto the entrance stage. Bischoff is in his usual black leather jacket, black jeans, and nWo tee. He’s got a mic in hand, looking quite angry. The usual back-up isn’t with him tonight, but he still has some. Tonight, the fuzz are with him. Six police men are standing behind Bischoff, looking ready for action.

Eric Bischoff: Scotty Steiner… what in the hell makes you think that you have influence of me now!? You proved yourself to be a punk, and a thief! You stole from Jeff Jarrett, and the New World Order! The WCW World Heavyweight Title Belt is our property, and that is exactly why these police men are here with me tonight! Twenty of Nashville’s finest are here tonight. Yes, I know, for dumb rednecks like you, I’ll explain. Only six are out here, so that means the police chief and eleven more police men are backstage, ready if needed. I know, hard math, hard math.

The crowd boos Bischoff’s rather cheekish comments.

Eric Bischoff: Big Poppa Pump, I am the WCW President! Now, I may be a nWo contracted member because well, WCW simply sucks, but I am still their President. So that means, I am the one with the power, no matter what the board of directors want to try and do! So Scott, you want an answer to getting into the Super Cage? Well here it is… no.

The crowd immediately starts to boo. Many people can’t help but love Scott Steiner, and the ones that don’t, still know he is deserving of being in the Super Cage match.

Eric Bischoff: There is no way in hell I am going to let you into the Super Cage! Scott Steiner, I have the power in this god forsaken company! Me, me, me! You don’t have anything! Not you, not the board of directors, and not that steaming pile of pig*shit* Ric Flair! Me! And no one else! And just to prove that to you, police, please go take back what is rightfully mine!

The crowd boos as the six police men start to walk down the entrance ramp to the ring.

Eric Bischoff: Scott, you either hand that Title back to these police men right now, or they will arrest your sorry ass, and then, they will take back the World Title! Choice is yours Scotty!

The police men slowly climb up the ring steps, and all stand along the ring apron, eyeing up Scott Steiner. Steiner takes a few steps back, and lays the Title out on the canvas, as if it is a line between the two sides. He motions for the cops to “come get some”, ala The Rock, but with both hands, not just one. The police men all charge into the ring, but Scott pulls out the pipe from the back of his jeans, and starts swinging like a mad man! One cop does down! Two! Three! Fourth with a direct shot to the head! Fifth after a shot to the gut and back! The sixth takes a kick to the gut, and Steiner power bombs him onto two of the fallen cops! Steiner has just dismantled the six police officers! The crowd is cheering like crazy, and on the stage, Bischoff can’t believe it! He signals for the rest of the police men to come out from the back, and they do, the police chief leading the way, wielding a nightstick. Steiner realizes he can’t take those odds, or he just is tired of kicking ass, either one, and scoops up the World Title Belt with his left hand, the pipe still in his right. Big Poppa Pump rolls out of the ring and escapes through the crowd, juts like last week! A few of the police men roll out of the ring after they get in, and chase off after Steiner, but he already has a head start, and is long gone! As the crowd cheers for Steiner’s rebellious acts, Eric Bischoff is fuming on the stage, in disbelief his plan has backfired.

Tony Schiavone: Look at Scott Steiner go, Professor!

Mike Tenay: Yeah, literally! For the second week in a row, Scott Steiner has took the World Heavyweight Title Belt and escaped through the crowd! But he may not be lucky to escape this time, Tony! He’s got the police after him now!

Tony Schiavone: Only time will tell if Big Poppa Pump can escape this week, but for now, we have to take a commercial break! But don’t go away, because the night is only getting started, here on Nitro!


When Nitro returns, it’s rift o’ plenty. The Hart Foundation knock-off is playing as Teddy Hart is finishing his entrance to the ring, dressed in the Hart Foundation singlet, Jack Evans in pants and a wife beater beside him. As the two enter the ring, the knock off of ‘Roadhouse Blues’ hits, bringing out Super Crazy to a good pop like always. Crazy runs down the ramp, slapping hands with some of the fans along the ramp before diving into the ring and posing on a corner turnbuckle. He hops down, and referee Scott Dickenson orders for the bell to be rung, and woo-hoo, things are underway!

Match One
Super Crazy vs. Teddy Hart (w/Jack Evans)
Singles Match

At the beginning of the match, it is heavily speculated by Tony and Tenay that the winner of this match could be facing Shane Helms for the Cruiserweight Title at Mayhem. Hart and Crazy seem to think this too because they’re in full work mode in this one. The two waste no time in being flippy and floppy, executing arm drag after arm drag in the right away, each man going drag for drag. Hart eventually scored with a hip toss, tried another, only for Crazy to back flip out of the toss, throw himself up at Hart’s neck and hit a modified spinning head scissors. More spots would follow, of course. Hart retreated to the outside, only for crazy to climb up to the top turnbuckle and take out both Hart and Evans with a moonsault press. A springboard back elbow from the guard rail followed to both, and Hart took a drop tope hold onto the steel steps. Evans are a hurricanrana on the entrance ramp, but things finally caught up for Crazy at around the four minute mark when Hart scored with a low blow. From there, Hart jumped onto the guard rail, ran along it (much like Jeff Hardy would do) and connected with a missile dropkick.

The match pace slowed down from there, as Hart rolled Crazy back into the ring and worked him over in the corner and on the canvas. Teddy got the chance to show what “Uncle Bret” taught him on the ground, as Teddy actually did a good job applying various holds and submissions to Crazy’s head and neck. Teddy almost scored a submission victory after scissoring Crazy’s head and throat with his legs, but Crazy reached the ropes before he passed out. Teddy was on a roll, almost scoring the pin fall after a wrap-around DDT, where he well, spun all the way around Crazy’s torso and back until land back at his chest again, planting him with a DDT. It was a hard move to pull off, but the young cruiserweight did it. A super plex from the second rope almost won the match as well, as did a tornado DDT from the top. However, Teddy Hart became very distracted when Shane Helms showed up on the entrance ramp, holding his Cruiserweight Title. Helms simply watched the match, but it threw Hart off, giving Crazy some time to recover. Hart quickly tried to throw a drop kick at Crazy, but The Insane Luchadore moved out of the way, and Hart dropped Dickenson.

From there, Crazy went to town on Hart, hitting numerous right hands, as well as a hip toss. Evans came in, only to eat a tilt-a-whirl head scissors. Crazy tried to take on both members of the Flying Harts, which he did for a few moments, but things caught up to him when Hart scored with a leaping bulldog as Crazy worked over Evans. Helms acted as though he was going to come down to the ring to help Crazy during this fiasco, but he never did, drawing quite a few boos. From there, Hart leaped onto the third rope as Evans lifted Crazy up for a tiger suplex, and Hart connected with the springboard lariat, scoring with the Hart Attack 2.0. Evans rolled out of the ring, Hart made the pin, and Dickenson miraculously recovered at that moment, counting the three.

Result: Teddy Hart def. Super Crazy at 11:07

After the match, Hart’s hand is raised in victory, and he and Evans celebrate. On the stage, Helms smirks at Hart, and the fallen Crazy, before turning on his heel and leaving for the backstage.

Tony Schiavone: What was that all about, Professor?

Mike Tenay: Well I can’t be too sure, but my guess is only as good as yours. If you ask me, I’d say he was scouting his competition. Teddy Hart and Super Crazy both are the front runners for a title shot right now, and Helms knows it. We’ll try and get a hold of him later folks, but until then, we have to take a commercial break. But do not go away! I’ve just gotten word that Lance Storm is on his way out here folks!


New Look Lance

As Nitro returns, the rift of ‘Snap Your Fingers, Snap Your Neck’ hits, bringing out the WCW North American Champion, Lance Storm. However, this is definitely a new Lance Storm. While the North American Title Belt is tightly strapped around his waist like usual, the attire is definitely different. Gone is the red and white colors, but replaced… with black and white. Lance Storm can’t help but smirk as the crowd starts to boo him. Schiavone is going ape shit at the announcer’s table, all because of Storm’s attire; an electric black long tights, with Lance and Storm respectively going down his left and right legs, in jagged white text. Storm enters the ring, and is immediately handed a microphone from David Penzer. Storm can’t help but smirk still as the crowd boos him. They quiet down as he tries to speak.

Lance Storm: …If I could be serious moment…

The crowd automatically starts to boo, knowing what he’s going to say.

Lance Storm: You know, I knew I should expect this from people like you. I take into thought was I was told last week, and wear a new attire, and all of a sudden, I’m a bad person. Well Nashville, and everyone watching at home, how about you listen to my explanation before you decide whether or not you want to hate me.

The crowd simply continues to boo, but Lance continues on anyways.

Lance Storm: For as long as I can remember, I have had very strong opinions on a few things in WCW. One, was that Canada was the superior nation in North America, and if you weren’t from Canada, you were nothing but trash. And the other thing I thought, was that the New World Order, was nothing but egomaniacal vile!

The crowd is half torn between jeers and cheers with the last comment. They agree, that’s the nWo summed up into two words, but hey, Lance Storm said it, and he’s seemingly about to announce his membership with that very same vile.

Lance Storm: And all week, I’ve been in a dilemma. Those two things were always a strong opinion of mine, but over time, the former changed. I came to realize, that it didn’t matter if you were from Canada, or the United States of America, or even Mexico, Japan, Germany, or Timbuktu! It was how you got the job done in the ring, and how good of a performer you were. So all this week, I thought, and I thought. If my one opinion has already changed within these past months, why can’t the other? Maybe I can see the light that my friend, Mike Awesome, has saw. Mike and I are friends, dating back to not only our Team Canada days, but ECW. And as I look back, he was the one winning the World Title there, not me. The Career Killer saw the light, and he was successful, while Lance Storm was stuck in mid card obscurity, doing absolutely NOTHING, WITH HIS CAREER! SO I ASK MYSELF, WHY NOT JOIN THE NWO!?

As Lance starts to get heated up, yelling, obviously, the crowd boos him. Lance’s eyes are cold, but yet, have a fire in them at the same time. He’s motivated for this.

Lance Storm: Well… Mike Awesome, everything that you said last week, it’s true. For years now, no one has been holding be back, but myself. While Mike Awesome was winning World Titles in ECW and Japan, and while guys like Booker T and Jeff Jarrett were becoming the WCW World Heavyweight Title, I, Lance Storm, was floating around in the under card, the mid card, “the nothing spectacular”, all because of myself. Myself… and my silly infatuation with my heritage of being a Canadian. For months, I wasted my time locked in bitter wars with men such as Jim Duggan and Hugh Morris, because they were American patriots. I washed away my CAREER, over some STUPID, IGNORANT, OPINION! STUCK, GOING NOWHERE, BECAUSE OF ME, MYSELF!

Lance pauses, taking a deep breath, calming himself down.

Lance Storm: …It is time I start to face reality, and think about myself, and where I am going to go with my career, my life. Because that’s exactly what my career is, my life. I live to wrestle, and without wrestling, I am nothing. I am no one. So now, I think. What do, I do? I can either go with what I know, or follow the path of a friend, a path that has helped him be successful. I have been taught by the very best this industry has ever seen; Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart, Stu Hart, the entire Hart Family, Chris Benoit, the list goes on and on! I can stick to what they have taught me. Be yourself, the cold, calculating, tactician, technical wizard, and total wrestling machine, that you are. Value tradition, pride, honor, and respect. Respect those that came before you, value this sports’ tradition. That is what I have been taught, but now, it all has been questioned. I’ve tried all that, and look where I am now; not where I want to be, no, not yet. So what’s my other option? Glory. Fame. Respect. By joining the nWo, I am t he one getting the glory, I am the one becoming famous, I am the one getting the respect, not showing it! I get what I want! I don’t have to slave myself away for years on end to get a miniscule amount of respect; I get GRAB IT AND TAKE IT!

Lance pauses, and a few boos can be heard.

Lance Storm: So it looks like, Nashville, I must choose. Glory and fame, or the teachings I have learned. Well Eric Bischoff, you wanted your answer, and here it is. I KNOW WHO I AM! I am exactly what I said I am! I am a ruthless, cold and calculating, technical wizard, and total wrestling machine! But most of all, an ASS-KICKING CANADIAN! I AM PROUD OF MY ROOTS, AND NOTHING WILL CHANGE THAT!

The crowd damn near explodes in cheers, as it seems that Lance Storm is not turning to the nWo.

Lance Storm: I know who I am, Eric Bischoff, and one thing that I am, is an egomaniacal piece of filth! I am not a New World Order kind of guy, and I don’t want to be one! So to the men who had valued what I valued, to Bret and Stu Hart, Chris Benoit, Dean Malenko, ‘Dynamite Kid’ Tom Billington, Jacques Rougeau, Arn Anderson, and especially, ‘THE NATURE BOY’ RIC FLAIR, I know who I am, because of you! I am Lance Storm, and from here on out, I am SYNONYMOUS with W…C…W!

The crowd’s cheering only gets louder, followed by a loud ‘Lance, Lance’ chant. Storm soaks it in, nodding his head and smiling.

Lance Storm: Eric Bischoff, Mike Awesome, Jeff Jarrett, Hulk Hogan, Curt Hennig, Brian Adams, and Bryan Clarke… each and every one of you are SCUM, and PIECES OF FILTH! I DESPISE, EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU! I WILL BREAK ALL YOUR KNEE CAP’S! I WILL RUIN YOU ALL! I AM LANCE STORM… YOUR W..C..W NORTH AMERICAN CHAMPION! AND THE NEW WORLD ORDER, CAN STICK IT!

Lance Storm throws the microphone down, and ‘Snap Your Fingers, Snap Your Neck’ hits, and Storm exits the ring, heading to the back, the crowd cheering him on. Before the commentators can even get a word in on “the biggest moment in the history of Nitro” (there, I said it for you, Tony), we cut to the back.

Does WCW Have A Sponsorship With Prozac?

We’re backstage, where Eric Bischoff is in his locker room, surrounded the Mike Awesome, KroniK, Nashville’s Chief of Police, and two of his police men. Hogan and Jarrett are absent. Jarrett because he’s off being emo while thinking about his Title match, and Hogan because he won’t be important in this segment. Bischoff seems stressed, but hey, at least he didn’t just hear what Lance Storm said about his offer.

Police Chief: Mr. Bischoff, the six police men that Mr. Scott Steiner assaulted earlier in the night have been taken to the hospital, but-

Bischoff yells at the chief, cutting him off.

Eric Bischoff: Well take the rest of your men, and FIND HIM!

Police Chief: Yes, that’s what he intend to do. We’ll search the arena and the grounds, and I’ll personally report back to you.

The Chief of Police turns to leave, and starts to exit the locker room.

Eric Bischoff: Good, now get the hell out of here!

The door closes shut as Bischoff finishes his statement. With the police gone, Bischoff leans back on his black leather couch, looking stressed out.

Eric Bischoff: Guys… tonight sucks! We’ve got Scott Steiner running loose, with our World Heavyweight Title, armed and dangerous! Jeff’s a nervous wreck! He’s off by himself; he badly wants Nash tonight. Plus, Curt’s out! His nose got shattered by Steiner’s pipe shot last week! Everything is chaos! Boys… I need you to make sure Jeff doesn’t lose the Title tonight. At all costs, Kevin Nash cannot win that match tonight! KroniK, go find Jeff, keep him company. Mike, go find out what the status is with Lance, he better have joined us… stupid Canadian.

The three men leave, and Bischoff closes his eyes, massaging his temple.

Eric Bischoff: I need a Prozac…


When Nitro returns, we’re at the announcer’s table!

Tony Schiavone: Welcome back to WCW Nitro folks, and what a night it has been, Professor! Scott Steiner still has the WCW World Heavyweight Title in his possession, he’s sent six police men to the hospital, and now the Nashville Police are on the hunt for him!

Mike Tenay: ‘Big Poppa Pump’ Scott Steiner certainly is causing a great deal of ruckus for Eric Bischoff, but how about what we witnessed moments ago? Lance Storm, in a very intense fashion, has told the nWo what they can do with their offer, and that his loyalty lies with WCW!

Tony Schiavone: Well I know I have never been so proud of Lance Storm in my life as I am tonight. I thought he was turning against us, going to the nWo. But no, not Lance! He’s WCW thick and thin, Professor!

Mike Tenay: And I am very happy to know that he is too, Tony. However, we need to keep the wrestling action going tonight, as up next, Konnan takes on The Wall!

As the camera shows that The Wall is already in the ring, ‘Filthy’ hits, sending the crowd to their feet as Konnan and Tygress make their way out to the ring. Konnan slaps hands with the fans on their way to the ring, and then rolls into the ring and poses for the crowd. After this, Konnan removes his shirt and bandanas, handing them to Tygress. Konnan nods to referee Billy Silverman, telling him he’s ready to go. The bell is rung, and this one is under way.

Match Two
Konnan (w/Billy Kidman & Tygress) vs. The Wall
Singles Match

Poor Wall. The Wall went from landing in a PPV match at Fall Brawl, to this being his first appearance since. And just like at Fall Brawl, The Wall was on job duty tonight. Konnan was on fire at first, landing a flurry of right hands and forearms to The Wall, followed by his patented rolling clothesline. Konnan stayed hot, hitting more punches and a few slams on The Wall, scoring a near fall here and there. However, at the three minute mark The Wall was able to turn the tides, connecting with a nasty big boot to Konnan. From there, The Wall stayed in control of the match, keeping Konnan in the corner to wear him down with strikes, followed by slamming him down to the canvas with slams and suplexes. The Wall almost wont he match on a few occasions, scoring with another big boot, as well as after a power bomb, and exploder suplex. However, with Tygress and the crowd behind him, Konnan rallied back , escaping from The Chokeslam and connecting with the K-Factor. After both men recuperated, Konnan rallied, hitting several right hands, a rolling clothesline, vertical suplex, and then, the 187. With the crowd counting along, Konnan made the cover, and Silverman count the one, two, three, making Konnan the winner.

Result: Konnan def. The Wall at 7:12

Once the match was over, Konnan’s arm was raised in victory, and he celebrated his victory in the ring. However, the crowd immediately started to boo as Rey Misterio Jr. hopped the guard rail, wielding a steel chair. Rey dived into the ring under the bottom rope, and walked over to Konnan, whose back was turned. As the crowd tried to get Konnan’s attention, Rey whacked him with a steel chair shot to the back! Konnan staggered and turned to face the culprit, only to get rocked with a steel chair shot to the face! Rey laughs at Konnan, and then starts to stab the chair into the extremities of Konnan, only for the crowd to distract Rey, cheering loudly as Billy Kidman sprinted out from the back and down to the ring. Rey picked up the chair, ready to fight Kidman since he had a chair in his hands. Kidman rolls into the ring, and Rey takes a big swing, but Kidman ducks, running underneath the chair and off the ropes. Kidman comes back at Rey, and tackles Misterio to the ground! With the crowd happily cheering him on, Kidman mounts Rey, and starts laying into his former friend’s face with a flurry of punches, both right’s and left’s. Kidman pounded on Misterio for several moments, but as he did so, he was oblivious to Chavo Guerrero Jr. rushing down the entrance ramp and sliding into the ring. Chavo immediately slowed down once getting into the ring, not wanting to alert Kidman of his presence. Chavo slowly picked up the fallen chair Misterio had, snuck over to Kidman, and drilled the chair into the back of Kidman’s head! Kidman goes down, rolling off of Misterio and into the canvas, laying on his back. Chavo extended an arm and hand to Misterio, who took it, and pulled himself up to his feet. Chavo and Rey stared at each other, both slightly smirking. Rey extended his hand, Chavo took it, and the two embraced into a hug from there. They raised each other’s arms in triumph, and then left the ring as Tygress checked on her boys, who were down and hurt from the steel chair attacks.

Tony Schiavone: Professor, why is Chavo Guerrero Jr. helping Rey Misterio!?

Mike Tenay: Your guess is as good as mine! All we can get out of that is that Rey Misterio Jr. has found himself some back up in his war against the Filthy Animals. I don’t know why, but I assume we’ll find out at some point. However, Tony, I have just gotten word that ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund has caught up with Shane Helms, so lets see what was up with the WCW Cruiserweight Champion being out at ringside during tonight’s opening match!

Cut to the back!

The First Full Match For Mayhem

We find ourselves out in the parking lot, where ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund is in a tuxedo, running up to ‘Sugar’ Shane Helms, who is getting ready to leave the building, hence him being dressed in jeans, and having a jacket on, plus a beanie over his head. His WCW Cruiserweight Title Belt, of course, is still slung over his right shoulder.

Gene Okerlund: Shane! Sugar Shane! Shane Helms, wait!

Okerlund runs up to Helms, who stops and turns around. He lets Okerlund catch up to him, and catch his breath. Helms looks annoyed.

Shane Helms: Mean Gene can’t you see I’m trying to leave? But you know what? Don’t worry about it. It’s natural to want to get the greatest Cruiserweight Champion on the TV one more time, so Gene, fire away. What thrilling and sensational questions to you have for ‘Sugar’ Shane Helms?

Okerlund looks disgusted with Helms’ cocky manner, but does his job anyways.

Gene Okerlund: Well I, just like everybody else, want to know why you were out at ringside during the match between Teddy Hart and Super Crazy tonight! You said you didn’t want to have anything to do with The Insane Luchadore anymore, but there you tonight, at ringside, during his match! Why?

Helms looks at Okerlund like he’s stupid for not knowing the answer.

Shane Helms: Gene, honestly, there’s only one reason why I would be out watching two guys like Teddy Hart and Super Crazy; to scout my opponents. I know, I can’t believe it either, but the Board of Directors have said that at Mayhem, I’ll be defending the WCW Cruiserweight Title against both Teddy Hart, and Super Crazy, in a triple threat match. However, I still can’t understand why this match has been made. I don’t see how Teddy Hart, nor Super Crazy, can be deemed number one contenders for my Title!

Gene Okerlund: And why’s that, Shane!?

Shane Helms: Why? Isn’t it obvious!? For starters, Teddy Hart is a punk! He’s getting by in WCW because of his last name! If his last name was anything but Hart, he’d be in the Power Plant, wasting away with all the other no-talent hacks. Hart’s a disgrace to the Hart name, a name that has done a lot for professional wrestling. But you know what, Gene? When I think about it, the name Hart doesn’t mean squat when you compare it to a name like Helms.

Helms raises his head in self-pride, looking egotistical as ever. Okerlund looks appalled.

Shane Helms: And Super Crazy, come on, Gene. You and I both know that stupid jumping bean shouldn’t be in this country, let alone WCW! President Bush needs to crack down on illegal immigrants coming into this country, Mean Gene! But you know? It doesn’t matter. I’m Shane Helms, and I’ve been the Cruiserweight Champion for almost eight long months now, and there is no one better than me! I’m the greatest WCW Cruiserweight Champion of all time, and at Mayhem, on November 18, I’m going to prove just that! Now excuse me, Gene, there’s a hot party with Sugar Shane’s name on it!

Helms turns on his heel in an arrogant matter, and enters his car that’s right next to him and Gene. He turns it on, and drives away as Okerlund shakes his head in disgust at Helms’ attitude.

Tony Schiavone: Success has surely gone to Shane Helms’ head, Professor!

Mike Tenay: I think that might be an under statement, Tony! Shane Helms has become arrogant and egotistical over these last few months, and if he isn’t careful, he’ll lose that Cruiserweight Title he’s fought so hard to keep at Mayhem! Teddy Hart and Super crazy are both capable of unseating Shane Helms, Super Crazy already almost pinned Helms at Fall Brawl!

Tony Schiavone: Well if you ask me, I hope Shane Helms does lose at Mayhem! His ego needs to be deflated, and I hope Super Crazy is the man to do it!

Mike Tenay: Me too, Tony, me too. However, we have to take a commercial break, but there is still a lot more to come, here on Nitro!

Before Nitro goes to a commercial, we catch a look backstage again at Jeff Jarrett. He’s by himself again, looking more nervous now, pacing his darkened locker room.


Yes, nothing from Tony when we return! Only the theme titled…

A Match Of Legendary Proportions

‘Sprach Zarathustra’ hits, sending Tennessee to its feet in cheers, as ‘The Nature Boy’ Ric Flair walks out onto the stage, wearing a tan Armani jacket, plus white dress shirt and tan khaki’s. Styling and profiling like always, Slick Ric struts down the entrance ramp, slapping hands with quite a few of the fans along the entrance ramp. “Naitch” climbs up the steel steps and onto the apron, and struts along the apron before getting into the ring. Once in the ring, more strutting from Flair, followed by being handed a microphone from David Penzer.

Ric Flair: Nashville, Tennessee… WOOO!


Ric Flair: Dubya See Dubya, Wednesday Nitro, is love baby, and the Naitcha’ Boy is loving it! It’s been a wild past couple of months for good ole Naitch, but tonight, The Nature Boy has something to say! And the addressee of my speech tonight… is, Hulk… HOGAN!

Mixture of boos and cheers from the crowd. Boos for the Hogan mention, cheers for a possible confrontation between the two.

Ric Flair: Hulkster, you’re a sly, sneaky, SON OF A BITCH! Hogan, for most of the past year, you were sitting on your ass at home, doing nothing with your life because you got ran out of WCW! But Hollywood, I brought you back! In September, The NAITCHA BOY… brought you back. You were a nothing, Hogan, but with Ric Flair bringing you back to WCW, the attention and spotlight was back on you again, baby, just how you, WOOO, like it!

Flair pauses, licking his lips and really just pausing for the sake of pausing.

Ric Flair: Hollywood, you wanted the spotlight again, and I gave you the chance to have it… by fighting the New World Order! But you betrayed Ric Flair, the fans, and WCW! You showed exactly what kind of trash you are when you betrayed me, Hogan, back at Fall Brawl. You fooled me… you fooled us all. You were supposed to aid WCW in the War Games match against the nWo, but this is what happened.

A video rolls on the Nitro Tron. Oh look, it’s from Fall Brawl!

After a few moments Hulk Hogan limps out to the ring in a yellow Hulkamania t-shirt, and enters ring one, where Ric Flair, Booker T, and Sting are motionless on the canvas. The nWo all flee into ring two, while Hogan stands tall in ring one. Hogan points his finger at the nWo, only to turn and Leg Drop Booker T! Hogan got up, and Leg Drops Ric Flair! Just to finish off the job, Hogan gives Sting the Leg Drop too.
The video ends, and Flair is in the ring still, looking pretty angry. The crowd is lightly booing.

Ric Flair: …I trusted you. Hulk, I don’t know why, I guess it’s because I’m old… because NAITCH, is GETTING CRAZY! RIC, WOOO, FLAIR, IS GROWING SENILE! I trusted you Hogan, and you SPAT IN MY FACE! SO HOGAN, WOOO… like my friend ‘Rowdy’ Roddy Piper always used to say, Hogan, it is time you paid the piper! WOOO! SO HOGAN… I may haven’t gotten around to getting my revenge until now, but damn it, I am STYLIN, WOOO, and PROFILIN…

Flair pauses as he removes his Armani jacket, tossing it onto the ropes. He then starts to strut around the ring, getting his point across.

Ric Flair: …And ready, to KICK YOUR ASS! Hollywood Hogan, you and Eric Bischoff both, are begging for an ass kicking, courtesy of ‘The Nature Boy’ Ric Flair! HOGAN! I want you! You and me, Hogan! The Immortal One versus The Naitcha’ Boy! Hulk Hogan vs. Ric Flair! And I want it Hogan, Sunday, November 18, live on pay per view… at Mayhem! So Hogan, watcha, WOOO, gonna do, when NAITCH CHALLENGES… YOU! WOOO!

Flair’s getting into his rhythm, strutting around the ring aimlessly, much to the delight of the crowd. However, the crowd starts to boo heavily as Jimi Hendrix’s rocking guitar song, ‘Voodoo Child’, plays throughout the Memorial Gymnasium. As the crowd jeers heavily, ‘Hollywood’ Hulk Hogan appears on the entrance stage, in black jeans, the nWo shirt, black shades and feather boas, nWo bandana, and of course, the black stubbles that make up his beard, and the artificially enhanced blonde mustache. God bless Hulk Hogan. Hogan marches down the entrance ramp and into the ring, a mic protruding from his jeans pocket. Hogan enters the ring, and tension is immediately noticeable between the two legends. As the two men stare each other down, Hogan breaks the stare down, pulling the mic from his pocket and beginning to speak.

Hulk Hogan: Whoa, whoa, whoa… lemme tell ya’ somethin’ brother! ‘Nature Boy’ Ric Flair, you’re out here, runnin’ around, challengin’ ‘Hollywood’ Hulk Hogan, but who do you think you are, dude!? Last time, I checked, I’m Hulk Hogan, brother! And you, you’re Ric Flair… a never-was.

Ouch, harsh insult by Hogan, disrespecting the legacy of Flair. The crowd picks up on it, and they boo Hogan like crazy. Hulk simply smirks.

Hulk Hogan: I mean, honestly Ric, you’re out here acting like you’re some kind of legend. Some kind of Hulk Hogan! Well listen up jack, you are nothing, and Hollywood Hogan means nothing, compared to me! I’m Hulk Hogan, brother, the biggest legend in the history of professional wrestling! Ric Flair… he’s some guy who wasn’t good enough to beat Hulk-A-Mania. Some dude who wasn’t good enough to carry Hollywood Hogan’s jock. Ric Flair, you were never big enough, or good enough, to be even considered as a has-been, jack! You are, and always will be, a never-was!

More heavy jeers from the crowd. Flair glares at Hogan, and bites his tongue, keeping his cool and letting Hogan speak his mind.

Hulk Hogan: Naitcha’ Boy, you can preach all you want about bringin’ Hulk Hogan back, but lemme tell ya somethin’, brother! Ric Flair did not bring Hulk Hogan back! Eric Bischoff, the single greatest mind in sports entertainment ever, brought back ‘Hollywood’ Hulk Hogan! Eric Bischoff, Jeff Jarrett, and the nWo brought back Hollywood Hogan, dude! ‘Hollywood’ Hulk Hogan would never associate himself with crap like you, Sting, Booker T, and World Championship Wrestling! I’m a legend, brother, and the only one in this company! You’re nothing.

The crowd boos, as Hogan’s eyes have now become fixated on Flair, not even worrying or caring about the crowd.

Hulk Hogan: Ri…

Flair cuts Hogan off with the almighty…

Ric Flair: WOOO!


Ric Flair: HOGAN! I’M NOT A LEGEND!? Hulk, if you think that, then you know what!? You can kiss my ass!

The crowd pops for Flair, but Flair just keeps on spewing out the words.

Ric Flair: Hulk, I’d love nothing more than to kick your ass, right here, right now, but no! I know what will happen if I break your jaw! You’ll run to you lap dog, Bischoff, and you’ll get me thrown in jail, and thrown out of WCW! Well Hogan, you can’t trick me! I don’t think so you son of a bitch! Hogan, you can say what you want, but I know, and everyone in Nashville knows, that Ric Flair, IS A LEGEND!



Woo, more cheers.

Ric Flair: AND HOGAN… to be, THE MAN… you’ve got to, WOOO… BEAT, THE MAN!

The crowd cheers again as Flair, eyes filled with rage, glares at Hogan. The two men star each other down while the crowd starts to settle down. When they’re finally quiet, Hogan strokes his chin, and begins to speak again.

Hulk Hogan: …You’re the man, huh? Well Flair, I hate to break it to ya’, jack, but Hulk Hogan’s been the man ever since a little thing called Hulk-A-Man was born in 1984! Who’s the man now, brother!?

Ric Flair: “The Man” is still, WOOO, RIC…FLAIR! Because Hogan, while you were winning our first World Title in 1984, The Naitcha’ Boy was already a two-time NWA World Heavyweight Champion! Hollywood, Ric Flair is “The Man”, and you, Hogan, you’re the old fossil staying in WCW because of the power that the slimy jack ass of a man called Eric Bischoff holds! In my eyes, you both are dirty, rotten, steaming pieces of crap!

The crowd cheers as Flair can’t help but smirk from their cheers.

Hulk Hogan: Flair… you want a match at Mayhem with “The Man”… The Immortal One, ‘Hollywood’ Hulk Hogan!? Well brother, YOU GOT IT!

The crowd EXPLODES as Hogan agrees to the match, and Flair grins. However, Hogan is sure to end the party mood quickly.

Hulk Hogan: But Ric, lemme tell ya somethin’, brother! At Mayhem, I’ll kick your ass, jack, and show all of these sheep’s that you are a never-was, the real fossil, and the sleazy son of a bitch, who could never defeat Hulk Hogan!

The crowd immediately starts to jeer Hogan, but he keeps going.

Hulk Hogan: And Flair, this is a message straight from Bischoff… he could kick your ass, ANYTIME, ANYWHERE! Because you, Ric, are nothing but a piece of sh-

Hogan can’t finish the “it” that Flair is, because Ric lunges at Hogan, knocking the mic out of Hogan’s hand with a left hook, while his right hand scores with a strike to the Hulkster’s jaw! The crowd explodes as Flair starts firing off left-handed jabs at Hogan, sending the “orange skinned goblin” reeling. Hulk staggers, and Flair whips him into the ropes. Hulk hits the breaks, clinging his arm around the ropes, stopping his forward momentum. Hogan quickly drops to the canvas, and rolls out of the ring, loose feathers from his boas falling onto and off of his shirt. The crowd boos as Hogan walks away from the brawl, but Hogan gives Flair the finger wag (of doom!) as he stalks up the entrance ramp. Flair walks over to the ropes near the entrance ramp, standing on the first and second rope, shouting at insults and threats to Hogan.

Tony Schiavone: Oh my goodness, Professor, I cannot believe it! The two biggest legends in the history of professional wrestling, ‘Hollywood’ Hulk Hogan and ‘The Nature Boy’ Ric Flair, are going to fight at Mayhem!

Mike Tenay: I can’t believe it either, Tony. Ric Flair and Hulk Hogan are without a doubt, like you said, wrestling’s two biggest legends. They’ve had wars in the past, but this time, this match, at Mayhem, on November 18, is by far going to be the most intense and personal war between the two! Mark my words!

Tony Schiavone: I definitely agree with that statement, Professor. However, ladies and gentleman, don’t turn the channel, but we’ll be right back after a very short commercial break! Stay tuned for a lot more WCW action!


When Nitro returns, the combatants for the next match are already in the ring. In one corner, we have The Boogie Knights, Alex Wright and Disco Inferno, making a re-union, against the WCW Tag Team Champions, Chuck Palumbo and Sean O’Haire, or the Young Lions.

Match Three
Boogie Knights vs. The Young Lions
Non-Title Tag Team Match

With PPV build-up and continuing feuds having to be crammed into three shows for the Mayhem PPV, the wrestling action has taken a bit of a down turn, as the build-up is done mainly in angles and promos. However, The Young Lions are getting the chance to wrestle on live TV again, instead of run-ins with WCW and the nWo. They’ll still be doing that, but right now, time to show why they’re the Tag Champs. Palumbo and O’Haire rocked the house at the start of the match, both men laying into Wright and Inferno with heavy right hands and forearms in the early going, knocking the Boogie Knights around the ring, followed by O’Haire knocking Inferno to the outside with a dropkick, and Palumbo tossing Wright over the top rope, and onto Inferno, with a military press. The Young Lions controlled the match on the outside, scoring with more brawling esque maneuvers, as well as a few whips into the steel guard rail and stairs. However, the Boogie Knights took control once the match eventually got back into the ring. Alex Wright was able to duck a Jungle Kick from Chuck Palumbo, and score with a big German Suplex. Wright’s under card, so his finisher didn’t put Palumbo away of course. However, it did let Boogie Knights isolate Chuck Palumbo for the next several minutes, making quick tags, followed by one man holding Palumbo, and the other man landing several shots to Palumbo’s face and torso. Several slams and suplexes scored near falls for Boogie Knights, but Chuck Palumbo was able to take down Inferno with a big atomic drop after reversing the Chartbuster (Stunner). Tags were made, and Sean O’Haire, the hot tag man, was on fire. He knocked down Wright and Inferno repeatedly with running forearms, followed by Inferno eating a Samoan drop and Wright a leaping heel kick. From there, Palumbo re-entered the ring, connected with a Jungle Kick to both members of the Boogie Knights, and O’Haire climbed up to the top turnbuckle. Seanton Bomb connected to Das Wonderkin, and O’Haire covered Wright to get the three count.

Result: The Young Lions def. Boogie Knights at 7:49

After the match, The Young Lions surprisingly get to celebrate their victory without interference from the New World Order. Commentators build this up as the rest of the nWo being pre-occupied right now with Steiner being on the prowl somewhere, and a stressed out Jarrett and Bischoff.

Speaking of which, the cameras immediately cut to the backstage area.

Guess Laws Aren’t Enforced

In the backstage, we are in the nWo locker room, again. Bischoff is on the leather couch, still looking completely stressed out. Mike Awesome and KroniK are also in the locker room with him. So is Hogan, surprisingly.

Eric Bischoff: I cannot believe this! First, we have Jeff Jarrett all by himself, refusing to be around any of us tonight to prepare for his World Title match against Kevin Nash, Scott Steiner could be anywhere, and these police aren’t doing a damn thing to find him, in my opinion, and Lance Storm insulted our name and all of us by refusing to join us! That scum wants to be WCW… well we’ll be sure to destroy him! And Hulk! What the hell man!? I know we both know that I could kick Ric Flair’s ass, but don’t bring me into your problems! I’ve got enough on my plate, Hulk! If you want to kick Flair’s old ass at Mayhem, do it, but don’t get me involved! The nWo, we may be one unit, one team, but we can’t fight everyone’s battles all the time. …However, guys, we need to fight Jeff’s battle tonight. He’s not in a right state of mind… I don’t know if he can beat Nash tonight. We need to make sure Jeff stays our Champion, and let him refocus over these next few weeks.

Awesome and KroniK all nod their heads, but Hogan seems to disagree. He opens his mouth to speak, but only an inaudible sound comes out because as he starts to talk, as the door of the locker room opens. The Nashville Chief of Police comes into the locker room, and Eric immediately jumps up to his feet, expecting results.

Eric Bischoff: Well!? Where is he!? Have you find him!? Where’s my Title!? Details, details!

Police Chief: Sir, my men and I have searched the arena, the grounds, the parking lot, everywhere. Scott Steiner is nowhere to be found here. His car is reported to be gone from the parking lot, Mr. Steiner is no longer at the Memorial Gymnasium.

Eric Bischoff: Are you sure!? Are you 100 percent positive!?

The Chief simply nods his head. He’s sure. Bischoff takes a big sigh of relief, and immediately seems a lot more relaxed. He looks at Adams and Clarke and grins. Looks like the swagger is coming back.

Eric Bischoff: Officer Robinson, you’ve been a big help, and I thank you for it. Now boys, can you please help escort the Chief of Police on out of our locker room?

The nWo members all share a laugh as Adams and Clarke grab a hold of the Chief of Police by the collar, lift him into the air, and chuck him from the locker room, through the door, and out onto the concrete floor in the hallway. Adams and Clarke close the door, and the 5 men all laugh. Because assaulting a “police officer” is a laughing matter. But remember, the nWo is above the law. Bischoff smirks, and then looks at Hogan as the segment starts to end.

Eric Bischoff: Hulk, you know what? You’re right? I could kick Ric Flair’s ass!

Hogan grins, as does Bischoff as the segment ends.

Tony Schiavone: Eric Bischoff has no class!

Mike Tenay: I don’t know who in the hell Eric Bischoff thinks he is to have Brian Adams and Bryan Clarke assault a law enforcer, but I hope charges are filed!

Tony Schiavone: Well I doubt the New World Order would care anyways! However, Scott Steiner has escaped from the clutches of the New World Order, and now the police, with the WCW World Heavyweight Title Belt still in his possession!

Mike Tenay: I don’t know what Scott’s playing at by keeping the Belt still, Tony, but this situation could make for an odd predicament if Kevin Nash wins the WCW World Heavyweight Title tonight! And speaking of Kevin Nash, he and Scott Hall are backstage with ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund!

Cut to the back!

The Master Plan Of The Wolfpack

We’re at the interview area for the first time tonight, where Okerlund, in his best penguin suit still, is standing by with Kevin Nash to his right, and Hall to his left. Hall is wearing a Wolfpack t-shirt and jeans, and of course, has a toothpick hanging out of his mouth. Nash is wearing is long red pants that say Outsider down the legs, and the red tank top that he usual wears.

Gene Okerlund: Outsiders, ‘Bad Guy’ Scott Hall, ‘Big Sexy’ Kevin Nash, we’re only moments away from your shot at the WCW World Heavyweight Title, Nash, against ‘The Chosen One’ Jeff Jarrett. What are your thoughts as you prepare for this monumental match?

Scott Hall: Firs’ off Gene-O, lemme just say one thing firs’… …hey yo.

Hall grins at the camera, toothpick dangling from his lower lip. The camera then turns its attention of Kevin Nash, who is already dressed in his usual attire, and looking cool and calm.

Kevin Nash: Ya’ know, Mean Gene, I am definitely ready for this match. Wolfpack is in da house, and tonight, Big Sexy is walking away from Nashville, the WCW World Heavyweight Champion. And then… then, the master plan of The Outsiders comes into affect.

Gene Okerlund: Plan!? A master plan!? What is this!?

Kevin Nash: A master plan is an ingenious idea, that with the correct precision and timing, will lead to great rewards… but that’s unimportant right now, Gene.

Nash and Hall can’t help but chuckle, while Gene looks annoyed, but mainly confused.

Gene Okerlund: Thanks, I had no idea what the definition of a master plan is! Now, can you tell me what exactly is your master plan!?

Kevin Nash: Well aren’t plans usually kept secret?

Scott Hall: Heh, yo Gene… we love ya in everythin’, but we can’t jus’ tell ya our plans. That’d be uh… improper! Bad for business, ya see?

Kevin Nash: However, we’ll keep it real bland for ya, Gene. Let’s just say that tonight… is the starting point for two, heh, “outsiders”, to be main eventing at the big one, Starrcade.

Gene tries to reply, but Hall quickly interjects, blocking out Gene’s sound.

Scott Hall: I won’ go inta’ loa’s of details, but I’ll tell ya this; …Da Bad Guy is gonna be the third man in the Supa’ Cage! So Gene… after tonight, you can mark one up… for da good guys!

Hall throws his toothpick at Okerlund, and The Outsiders walk off-screen.

Mike Tenay: Ladies and gentleman, Kevin Nash is on his way to the ring now! The main event is coming up next! Jeff Jarrett versus Kevin Nash for the WCW World Heavyweight Title! Stay tuned!


When Nitro returns, there is a very short pause, followed by the loud ‘HOOOOOWWWLLL’, bringing out ‘Big Sexy’ Kevin Nash to a mixture of cheers and jeers from the crowd. Yes, that’s right, Nash is alone. Hall has disappeared or something; he’s not with Nash. Nash looks confident and menacing as he marches down the entrance ramp, right hand raised in the Wolfpack symbol. Nash gets into the ring as ‘New World Order’ hits, bringing out ‘The Chosen One’ Jeff Jarrett, sans the World Heavyweight Title belt, to loud boos. Jarrett looks like a wreck right now. The shades are gone, he’s wearing no shirt, his eyes are pale. Me thinks he realized he may have bitten off more than he can chew with Kevin Nash tonight. Jarrett still has a guitar, which he drops at the steps before entering the ring. David Penzer goes through the introductions, Buffer style, and the World Heavyweight Title match is underway!

Main Event
Jeff Jarrett © vs. Kevin Nash
WCW World Heavyweight Title

With Jarrett looking like a nervous wreck, the announcers heavily hyped up that Jeff has wanted to wrestle this match alone, and now it looks like he has bitten off more than he can chew. Nash was cocky and dominant in the early goings of the match, shoving Jarrett down to the canvas as the two men went into tie-ups. Jeff continuously tried to go into tie-up’s with Nash, wanting to out-do the big man, but each time Nash simply used his power to shove Jarrett down. Nash stayed dominant, scoring with big right hands and forearm strikes to keep knocking The Chosen One down and down again. Finally, the beat down got a bit more interesting as Jarrett fled to the outside, with Nash following. Big Sexy rammed Jeff’s skull off the side of the ring, as well as the top of the ring steps, several times, before whipping the Champion into the steel ring post. A whip into the stairs, back and shoulder first, followed, and then one more whip into the ring post, and we have a bloodied Jeff Jarrett, just less than four minutes into the match.

Kevin Nash continued to rock Jeff Jarrett on the outside, dropping him throat first on to steel guard rail, and then a, dare I say it, vertical suplex on the concrete floor. Nash rolled The Chosen One into the ring, made a pin, but only got two. Nash continued to be on the offensive with more simple brawling, before a back breaker scored, and then a big ole’ scoop slam. Once the match reached the seven minute mark, Nash tried to finish The Chosen One off with the Jack Knife Power Bomb. Nash lifts Jeff up onto his shoulders, but Jeff straightens his upper body and wraps his legs as tight as he could around Nash’s head, doing everything he can to escape the move. Jeff landed several hard right hands to the top of Nash’s skull, but Nash only walked forward a few steps, ready to spike Jeff down to the canvas. In a last ditch effort, a rake of the eyes stopped Nash, who staggered back towards the corner. Several hard rights connected, knocking Nash back into the corner, and allowing Jeff to escape from Kevin’s shoulders and onto the top turnbuckle. With Jeff sitting on the top turnbuckle, he quickly grabs Kevin by the head, and scores with a big-impact, tornado DDT, a rare move for Jarrett, but one he has done before. Jeff went for a cover, got a two count, and proceeded to rest on the canvas, recovering from the heavy beat down he has taken from Nash.

Jeff took his time recovering, wiping the blood off of his forehead, and trying to recuperate. Once satisfied with his recovery, Jeff was able to work over Nash, wearing the big man down. Jarrett scored with the usual stomps, and then tried to wear down Nash’s knee, going through the usual build-up for a Figure Four; chop blocks, knee breakers, and putting Nash’s ankle/leg on the second rope and then jumping off the first rope onto his knee. Nash appears to be a beaten man at the eleven minute mark, and Jeff goes for the Figure 4. However, he takes too long or something, because Nash reverses, using his free leg to boot Jeff in the arse, sending him flying right into “Pee Wee” Anderson, and it’s a ref bump! Ah, the true makings of a Kevin Nash WCW match! With the referee down, Jarrett quickly scores with a low blow, and grins. He rolls to the outside and grabs his guitar. He’s starting to grow back to his normal self now, cheating is okay. Jarrett, guitar in hand, waits for Nash to get up to his feet. Kevin does, Jeff swings, but Big Sexy dodges! Nash with a boot to the gut, and GUITAR SHOT to Jarrett’s head! Jeff goes down! Anderson is stirring, so Nash hastily clears the ring of the evidence (broken guitar fragments). The ring cleared, Nash makes the cover as Anderson makes the count (so does the crowd)… ONE! TWO! …suspense…


Kevin Nash is the new WCW World Heavyweight Champion!

Result: Kevin Nash def. Jeff Jarrett at 12:08 to win WCW World Heavyweight Title

The crowd fucking erupts in cheers with Jarrett losing the Title, who cannot believe it either. Jarrett cries foul, pleading his case to Anderson: Nash used the guitar on him. Anderson isn’t hearing it, and Scott Hall rushes out from the back to celebrate with Nash, who is in an opposite corner of Jarrett. Hall makes his way onto the apron when the loud ‘HOOOOOWWWLLL’ is cut off with the theme of ‘New World Order’, bringing out an angry Eric Bischoff. The Bisch has a mic in hand, and the music immediately cuts.

Eric Bischoff: Now hold up just a damn minute!

The crowd boos.

Eric Bischoff: Randy Anderson, Kevin Nash CHEATED! He should not be the winner of this match! He used Jeff Jarrett’s guitar to assault Jeff! Look!

Shoving his thumb up into the air at the Nitro Tron, a replay of what just happened is shown. Nash picking up the fallen guitar, and smashing it over Jeff’s head, followed by him making the pin after throwing the broken guitar fragments to the outside of the ring.

The video ends, and Anderson hurries over to the edge of the ring, looks over the ropes, and spots the broken fragments. He looks on in horror.

Eric Bischoff: See? Now, Anderson, only you have the power to do what is right, and that is to restart the match. I cannot restart the match, but I can do this; Anderson, I fired you cheap ass before, and if you don’t restart this match, I’LL FIRE YOUR ASS AGAIN!

Anderson has no other choice, and in dramatic fashion, orders for the bell to be rung!

Continued Main Event
Jeff Jarrett © ? vs. Kevin Nash © ?
WCW World Heavyweight Title

So whose the champion now? Apparently, Jarrett is, and Nash’s win doesn’t get credited as a Title reign. Poor Nash. At least it wasn’t Hall, then it would really suck since he’s never won the Title. Speaking of The Bad Guy, he and Nash are both furious, but Hall seems the most pissed. He drops off the apron and charges at Bischoff, while Nash turns his focus to Jarrett, and both men stare down each other. Hall gets a third of the way up the entrance ramp, only to be intercepted by Mike Awesome and KroniK! They stand in front of Bischoff, and the four men slowly walk towards Hall, who stalks back down the entrance ramp, as Nash and Jarrett go back into a tie-up. Anderson can’t decide if he should pay attention to the match, or to the events unfolding outside the ring. Awesome and KroniK start to circle the ring, which means they’re circling Hall too. The three men are about to jump The Bad Guy, but here comes the unlikely cavalry! Cal Anderson, The Young Lions, and the unlikely leader until now, Lance Storm! This makes it a wild brawl outside the ring, and Anderson immediately tries to break it up on the outside.

During this time, Eric Bischoff flees to the backstage area, and in the ring, Kevin Nash throws Jarrett into the ropes, and scores with a Big Boot! The crowd, or those still watching the match in the ring, not the brawl right outside of it, cheer, and cheer more as Nash signals for the Jack Knife. Nash rams Jeff’s head in between his legs, and raises his arm into the air, Wolfpack signal aloft, only for ‘Hollywood’ Hulk Hogan to enter the ring! Hogan marched down the entrance ramp after the Big Boot, but no one even seemed to realize it! Anderson sure didn’t, or else he would notice that Hogan has a second guitar! Hogan is behind Nash, so he doesn’t notice either. Before Nash can pick up Jarrett, WHAM! Guitar shot to the back of Nash’s head! Kevin Nash goes down, and Hogan smirks before tossing out the guitar fragments. Hulk rolls out of the ring and joins in the brawl on the outside, cleaning house on Team WCW, and Scott Hall. Before he does though, he grabs Anderson by the collar, and throws him back into the ring. With Anderson back in the ring, Jeff picks Nash up to his feet, and connects with The Stroke! Cover! ONE! TWO! THREE!

Result: Jeff Jarrett def. Kevin Nash at 3:39 to retain

After the match, it is nothing but MAYHEM!

Pandemonium Bitches

With the match over, Hogan immediately exits the brawl at ringside, and rolls back into the ring. He helps Jeff Jarrett up to his feet, and the two celebrate, only to get knocked down from behind by Scott Hall! Scott goes at Jeff and Hogan while Nash recovers. However, here comes a man who wants to get him some of Hogan… Ric Flair! Flair rushes down from the back, amidst cheers from the crowd, and dives into the ring. Flair makes a beeline for Hogan, and he starts firing off numerous wild right hands and jabs! Flair knocks Hogan back into the corner as Nash gets to his feet, and The Outsiders start to hit Jeff with big right hands! On the outside, Cal Anderson and Lance Storm chase Mike Awesome into the crowd on one side, while The Young Lions do the same to KroniK on the opposite side of the ringside area.

It just the men in the ring left, but we make that two more men as Booker T and Sting rush out from the back! The two heavy faces dive into the ring, and they duel with The Outsiders! They all start to toss right hands in a big four man brawl, while Flair and Hogan are exchanging big right hands too! Jarrett gets back to his feet moments later though, and Nash rushes over to him, and starts drilling him with hard right hands. It’s 2 on 1 against Hall, leaving him to take The Book End! Hall rolls out of the ring, as Sting rushes over to Hogan. Sting crouches down low while Hogan and Flair brawl, and Sting low blows Hogan! There’s some payback for everything Hogan has done to Stinger over the years! Hogan staggers, and Flair clotheslines Hogan! Hogan falls through the second and third ropes, and to the outside of the ring! Meanwhile, Booker T comes up from behind Nash, grabs a hold of him by the waistline of his pants, and throws him through the second and third ropes to the outside as well! This allows The Chosen One to stagger forward, and Booker leaps off his feet, planting him with the Harlem Side Kick! Jeff staggers into the ropes, and is then knocked over to the top rope by a running Sting clothesline! The Outsiders re-group on one side of the ringside area, while Hogan and Jarrett do the same on the opposite side, leaving Flair, Booker, and Sting to stand tall in the ring.

Tony Schiavone: Oh my goodness! It has been a wild and chaotic night, Professor! We thought we had a new World Champion, only for Bischoff, Hogan, and Jarrett to screw Kevin Nash! Lance Storms has turned to the side of good, and rejected the nWo offer! Booker T, Ric Flair, and Sting have ran off Hogan, Jarrett, and The Outsiders! Scott Steiner still has the World Title Belt, and we still, we still, do not have a fourth man for the Super Cage! Next week is definitely going to be interesting as we lead into Mayhem!

Mike Tenay: What a night it has been Tony, indeed! We’re just eleven days away from Mayhem, and next week, it’s the final stop! We do know though that Scott Hall is the third man in the Super Cage. Booker T and Sting are the other two men in the Cage. Shane Helms will defend the WCW Cruiserweight Title against Super Crazy and Teddy Hart! And! Hulk Hogan takes on Ric Flair! It’s going to be a great night in eleven days, but we still have one more show until then, and that is next week! And that is when we will see all of you! For Tony Schiavone, I am Mike Tenay, so long everybody!

Tony Schiavone: …I just want to know who the fourth man is…

But wait viewers! Could Tony be leading us into something!? The closing credits roll, but before the show fades to black we cut… backstage!?

Answering Tony’s Question

Backstage, we are in first-person mode. The cameraman is obviously right next to someone, who is walking! Wow. The mystery person reaches a locker room door… that reads New World Order! The crowd cheers, expecting it to be Scott Steiner. The door opens, and a second camera is in the room, and it picks up the feed, showing the face of Eric Bischoff. Eric is grinning, happy with the screw-job he just partook in. He knows Jeff just won because of him, and looks to be happy. He notices something sitting on the couch, making him even more happy… The WCW World Heavyweight Title Belt.

Eric Bischoff: Heh… looks like those stupid cops got my Title back somehow! I knew those cops were worth the donuts we gave ‘em!

Bischoff laughs to himself, thinking the ‘joke’ was funny. However, he becomes immediately paranoid when the locker room doors closes!

It’s Scott Steiner!

Eric Bischoff looks like he just shit himself as Scott Steiner is standing in front of the closed, and locked, locker room door, holding his lead pipe, a sadistic grin on his face.

Eric Bischoff: H-… Ho-…. How, how did you get in here!? The cops… they said you left!

Steiner laughs as he takes one step closer to Bischoff. Bischoff has nowhere to go, he’s trapped.

Scott Steiner: Left? Ha! I’ve been in the building the whole night you stupid piece of sh**! Did you notice something, Eric? Those cops… they were all men. So you know what I did? Heh, I hid my ass in the woman’s restroom! I waited in there, scored some ass with my freak, Midajah, and waited for her to tell me the coast was clear! When you marched your stupid ass out to the ring to dick over another guy from winning the World Title, I came in here, and I hid behind that lovely plant you got right by the door.

Shot of the large plant to the right of the door.

Scott Steiner: Nice plant, dick head. So now, Bitch-off, you’re trapped in here with me! So you’re going to listen to me now! YOU’RE GONNA DO WHAT I SAY! YOU GOT ME!?

Bischoff, scared as hell, takes a step backward, trying to flee to nowhere. However, he backs right into the couch, and trips right onto it. Steiner closes the gap, so he is inches away from Bischoff.

Scott Steiner: Bitch-off, I want one thing, and one thing only. Put me in the Super Cage! Make me the fourth man!

Bischoff, panicked as ever, still finds a way to shake his head no at Steiner. Letting Steiner have the chance to face Jarrett is the one thing he does not want to do.

Scott Steiner: No? Well, here’s what will happen if I ask you again, and you say no. If you do, I will fu**in’ murder you with this pipe! YOU GOT ME!? SO WHAT IS IT!? AM I THE FOURTH MAN OR WHAT!?

Steiner raises the pipe into the air, ready to slam it into Bischoff’s skull. Bischoff quickly replies, fearing for his life.

Eric Bischoff: Y-… you’re in! Please… please don’t hurt me!

Steiner laughs, very pleased with not only being in the Super Cage, but the predicament he has in front of him. Steiner lowers his arm, but grabs Bischoff by the collar with both hands, pulling him up to his feet.

Scott Steiner: Good answer, Bitch-off… good answer. Now, I won’t kill you… I’ll just have some fun instead.

Bischoff immediately looks worried, but his expression gets wiped from his face by the lead pipe crashing into the side of his face! Bischoff goes down!

Bischoff is knocked out while Steiner smirks. Big Poppa Pump walks over to the door, unlocks it, and exits the room. Before he walks off-screen, he turns and looks back at the fallen, unconscious, Bischoff, as well as the camera.

Scott Steiner: …Have a good night!

Steiner laughs, and now, the show fades to black.
