WCW 2000: New Blood Rising
My Last BTB ended 06/20/10
WCW 2000: New Blood Rising
World Championship Wrestling was once a the greatest promotion on the planet. From 1996-1998, WCW dominated the world of professional wrestling. The NWO vs. WCW storyline, Sting's quest for Hogan and the WCW World Title, The Cruiserweights and the rise of Bill Goldberg had captivated the minds of fans of all ages.
But backstage politics, mismanagement and poor booking decisions lead to WCW falling from the top and the WWF becoming the number one promotion. WCW kept falling downward.
In the fall of 1999, WCW replaced Eric Bischoff with Vince Russo and Ed Ferrera...two men who helped the WWF bring about the Attitude era. It was a train wreck, ratings went into a nose dive. Wrestlers went from heel to face to heel with in weeks, some times with in the same broadcast. Screw job finishes and swerves were rampant.
By the end of 1999 WCW was critical. Russo made a last ditch effort to reform the NWO with Bret Hart, Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, Jeff Jarrett and later Scott Steiner. The fans collectively reached for their remotes. As 2000, approached and 1999 was left behind, no one in WCW was happy. The first PPV of the year Souled Out
was fast approaching and it was a creative mess.
The main feuds heading into Souled Out 2000
centered around the NWO/WCW war 3.0, as World Champion
and NWO member Bret "Hitman" Hart
was set to face Sid Vicious
in the main event...
and Chris Benoit
have been at each others throats over the WCW US Championship in a series of matches that had been the bright spot on each WCW broadcast. They were scheduled to lock up in a Triple Threat series of matchs. (one pure wrestling match, a bunkhouse brawl and caged heat) for the WCW US Title...
and Terry Funk
had been in control of WCW taking the fight to the NWO. NWO's leader Kevin Nash
was scheduled to face WCW Commissioner Terry Funk in a hardcore match. If Nash won, he would become WCW commissioner, if Funk wins NWO must disband.
Other Notable angles leading up to the PPV included: Booker T.
and his brother Stevie Ray
began a feud around Starrcade...Buff Bagwell
was in the middle of a feud with Diamond Dallas Page
over rumors of Bagwell hooking up with Page's wife Kimberly
...The Filthy Animals (Rey Misterio/Kidman/Eddie Guerrero and Konnan)
had been feuding with The Revolution (Shane Douglas/Dean Malenko & Perry Saturn)
and were scheduled to face off in a six man tag at Souled Out...Madusa
was the Cruiserweight Champion...YEAH I KNOW RIGHT
and was feuding with Oklahoma
who was a sexist and all that...yeah...

THE SH*T HITS THE FAN
Just the day prior to WCW's first PPV of 2000, everything started to implode. The World Heavyweight Champion Bret Hart couldn't compete in the main event due to severe concussion
. In fact it was looking like Bret Hart's in ring career might be over. This left bookers with a problem...they had no main event.
The first thought was to move Benoit vs. Jarrett to the main event slot but then the other shoe dropped...Jeff Jarrett was injured and off the PPV as well.
The creative team quickly came up with a back up plan thanks to Vince Russo
, to vacate the World Title and have Tank Abbott
..In an unrelated peice of news I'm sure Vince Russo was taken off the creative team and sent home.
. Here is where our story takes a turn...
In Real life, Kevin Sullivan was placed in control of the PPV and given booking powers of WCW. This lead to Chris Benoit/Dean Malenko/Perry Saturn and Eddie Guerrero to jump to the WWF and many wrestlers to ask for their releases...some didn't get them but the moral of WCW went to the toliet and before long Russo and Bischoff were in power...and WCW went out of Business about a year later.
Well WHAT IF
WCW put in place a booking team of Arn Anderson, Paul Orndorff, Terry Taylor and Dusty Rhodes?
Well thats where WCW 2000- New Blood Rising picks up.

Re: WCW 2000: New Blood Rising
I, for one, am interested. I really liked WCW and was sad to see it go. I think I block out most of WCW's dying days to protect myself. Because honestly, I initially don't remember it being in such a terrible state - Then I read your recap - it all starts to come back to me. That place was just ridiculous. Im going to follow this and see if you can actually turn that clusterf... around. Having Benoit, Saturn, Guerrero, and Malenko will help for starters. But more so, it is going to take a solid performance to pull through this one. Best of luck!

Re: WCW 2000: New Blood Rising
Great start and I like from where you have started. But I am not sure whether I like having Benoit, Malenko, Saturn and Eddie still with the company. On the one hand it adds great quality to your roster but on the other hand there is a good challenge there if you let them leave. The emergence of news guys etc.
All in all a good start and I look forward to reading and reviewing what you offer.

January 16, 2000
The Firstar Center - Cincinnati, OH
The show starts live, no video hype. Tony Schiavone, Bobby "The Brain" Heenan and Mike Tenay welcome us to the firt Pay-Per View of the new millennium. Shciavone runs down the Jarrett-Hart situation, going over the injuries and vacated titles.
Arn Anderson makes his way down to the ring, with the World Championship in hand. Anderson cuts a promo about how WCW was once on top of the wrestling world but fell hard in 1999. He says he sees the injuries to Bret Hart and Jeff Jarrett as a chance for WCW to pull itself up and back on top. There for because Terry Funk is busy tonight, he is in charge and that makes tonights main event up to him. He says that we will see an all WCW main event as Sid Vicious will face Chris Benoit to crown a new WCW World Champion. The crowd pops at this.
Dean Malenko vs. Eddie Guerrero
The first match of the PPV is a singles match that continues the feud between the Revolution and the Filthy Animals. Footage of the progressing feud is shown with Rey Misterio being taken out by Saturn flying through a table on the past Nitro and the assault on Konnan during tonights pre-show that turned the planned six man into two singles matches.

Re: WCW 2000: New Blood Rising
It is being reported that many are happy with the outcome of last nights Pay-Per View Souled Out. The actual buy rate numbers won't be in until the end of the month but reports are saying they met original expectations.
The make shift booking team of Dusty Rhodes, Arn Anderson, Terry Taylor and Paul Orndorff are expected to continue into tonight's Monday Night Nitro and beyond with Arn Anderson being named head of creative. Vince Russo and Ed Ferrera are still under contract and Ferrera will be at Nitro while Russo was sent home Saturday morning.
It is reported that Ric Flair is sitting in on booking meetings. This has struck some backstage as a bad idea but with Anderson as head of creative this was expected. It is also expected with Dusty Rhodes on the booking staff that Dustin Rhodes will soon become a feature player on WCW Broadcasts.
Other wrestlers said to be in line for a push include Chris Benoit who just won the WCW World Championship, Jeff Jarrett, Booker T., Vampiro, Eddie Guerrero and the Revolution.
Benoit winning the World Title is said to be a big boost to moral backstage. He is expected to carry the belt at least into Superbrawl as long term plans for the title haven't been mapped out. No word on who Benoit's opponent will be at the PPV but Jeff Jarrett, a rematch with Sid Vicious and Ric Flair have been floated as candidates.
One of the more interesting developments at Souled Out was the crowning of New WCW Tag Team Champions Vampiro and Norman Smiley. This is being described as a temporary pairing and they will be transitional tag champions. Vampiro and Smiley have gotten over well with the fans as of late and Terry Taylor thought an Odd couple pairing would be good for both men at this stage in their careers.
The Revolution grew in numbers at Souled Out with the Addition of the Wall and rumors are their may be one to two more wrestlers joining Shane Douglas' revolution. The stable will be taking a more militant stance on WCW Management in the next few weeks.
The Revolution may be the group replacing the NWO as the decision was made to pull the plug on the stable after Hart's injury. Kevin Nash, Scott Hall and Scott Steiner won't be used at tonight’s Nitro and with Jeff Jarrett and Bret Hart nursing injuries the NWO days are officially done in WCW...well at least until their next revival.
The First Nitro of the Anderson Era should be up this week.

I'm enjoying this man, putting the belt on Benoit is a smart move as is disbanding the nWo. Hopefully you keep this up.

Re: WCW 2000: New Blood Rising
Dubya C Dubya! Didn't watch too much of it back in the day, but I know some of the characters, so I'll do my best with the knowledge I have. Ridiculously huge roster btw. Haha @ Vince Russo's idea, and him possibly being booted too.
Souled Out Feedback
Arn Anderson opening the show makes some sense since the world title picture is kinda in a pickle. Good choice having Sid face Beniot. For some reason, I see you having Beniot win just because more readers will like it, and because he's an easier 'read'. I think though that Beniot wasn't ready back then. Sid Vicious is also a much more credible world champ.
Malenko gets the win in the opening match due to Douglas' actions. I'm not too sure what's going on here, but Kidman out to stop the after match beatdown was intriguing. The feud between these stables isn't over I guess.
lol @ the boring Brian Knobbs promo. Funny how you would describe it as that. Good to have right before his match I guess. Seemed like a crazy ending considering the match made it's way to the locker room area. I know who Norman Smiley is, but I've never been a fan of the guy. I never thought he belonged in wrestling so I'm not too excited of him being your hardcore champion. But with that said, the hardcore title can change hands at any moment, so he probably won't hold it for long.
Bro vs bro match now. I didn't like the ending to be honest with ya. I never really thought that a missile dropkick was a strong enough move to finish a match. Glad Booker won though, as he's the more talented of the two.
Nice lil' bit setting up this next match between Flair & Crowbar against Vampiro. Wicked turn of events in this match, as Norman Smiley ends up being Vampiro's partner. With Vampiro absolutely shocked during the hardcore title match, I'm guessing his surprised state was probably at how good Smiley is =P. But yah, nice turn of events. As expected from Smiley coming out, the two win.
Another Revolution against Filthy Animals match here. I loled @ the 2.9999 in the count. Haha. Don't recall seeing that before. Considering the match earlier, I expected interference in this one too, and there...not to disappoint come members of each team. Glad to see Kidman win, as I've always been a fan of his. The aftermath seemed quite brutal, and Revolution stands. The Wall joining these guys is huge. Literally and figuratively. Crazy things going down in this storyline. Like to see how you keep the ball rolling with this.
lol @ the affair rumors. I don't remember anything like that from back then, but funny nonetheless. Holy shit @ this brawl. Nice to see the use of the ringside area. Kimberly's appearance makes sense. DDP fully destroys Bagwell at the end. Crazy. With Kimberly checking on Bagwell, I don't know what to think. Bagwell should surely be out for a while after this.
Superbrawl is the next PPV? Always loved that name. Anyways, this match between Nash and Funk has huge ramifications. NWO disbanded is huge. lol @ that early part where Nash thought it was over. Handing the title to himself eh? lol. This certainly means he'll lose now, and that's exactly what happens. Quite big of you to disband NWO considering many would tweak them. I'm quite excited to see what happens now.
And now the main event for the vacant title. I gotta say, I predicted the finish to this. Beniot was the clear choice, as he's the easier wrestler to use, but I really, really, really think Sid Vicious should have been chosen. I don't think Beniot was ready for the world title at this point in WCW. He wasn't built up enough for it.
Overall, for an opening ppv, not bad. I would have liked to see more depth in the matches with a bit more detail and flow to them. I felt the flow was lacking the most. Fully written promos and hype could have definitely added to this show as well. The booking was well done I guess. I'm sure you have everything thought out. Looking forward to Nitro, and the continuation of this thread. I'm a fan of reading more about WCW (would have commented much more if I knew more), so I can't wait. Good luck btw with this. This is something different to the section that has the potential to be good.

Still playing with format...added pics so that some of you who may not know WCW 2000 can have a visual of the worker I'm talking about.
We open cold to a limo pulling up to the arena. Stepping out of the limo into the cold night air is "The Enforcer" Arn Anderson. He is shortly followed by WCW Commissioner Terry Funk who is still showing some of the battle scars from his match with Kevin Nash the night before.
After a few seconds they are joined by "The Nature Boy" Ric Flair who is dressed in a fine suit. He is all smiles and lets out a little "Woooo" before joining Anderson and Funk. All three head into the arena with giant smiles on their faces.
January 17, 2000 - Columbus, OH
Tony Schiavone: Fans welcome to Monday Nitro and we are Live in the capitol city of the great state of Ohio...Columbus for three hours of WCW! I am joined as always by Bobby "the Brain" Heenan and "Iron" Mike Tenay! And fellas, just twenty four hours ago the face of WCW changed forever and we have plenty to discuss here tonight but down in the ring our first match is about to begin...
Psychosis w/The Juice Juvi Guerrera vs. Blitzkrieg
These two put on one hell of a wrestling match. High Flying and lucha libre style spots. The announcers of course were talking about the NWO being defeated last night at the PPV and the fact that Ric Flair had returned to WCW. Blitzkrieg would pick up the win with a flying sunset flip from the top rope, getting the 1, 2, 3.
Winner Via Pinfall: Blitzkrieg
After the match Blitzkrieg is celebrating when Juventud Guerrera hits the ring and begins laying the boots to him. Psychosis has by this time recovered and joins in on the action. From the back Lash LeRoux rushes the ring and cleans house on Psychosis and Juventud Guerrera sending them to the outside and backing up the aisle.
LeRoux helps Blitzkrieg to his feet and the two friends embrace. All four men have a mini-stare down as we cut to....
Jeff Jarrett is walking backstage looking for Kevin Nash. He keeps asking production crew members where the N.W.O.'s locker room is. Everyone gives him the look like "HE CAN'T BE SERIOUS". Jarrett calls the guys slap nuts and continues on.
We come back from commercial break with Scott Hudson backstage interviewing Booker T.
Scott Hudson: Last night Booker, you faced your own brother Stevie Ray in a very physical match up. You came out the winner of that contest and offered your hand in respect to your brother and he just walked away. What is going though your mind?
Booker T.: Look last night I proved who the better man was. I finally shut up Stevie's big mouth. Stevie wants to talk about how I forgotten where I cam from. I remember damn well where I came from. I still got the scars to remind me every day of the life I worked my ass off to get away from. Now that business between me and Stevie...well thats done. We are always going to be brothers you know. One day I hope Stevie grows up and we can move on.
Scott Hudson: Well there you have it...
Scott Hudson is cut off by the arrival of Champagne Chris Kanyon, and his Champagne Dolls. Champagne is all smiles tonight
Champagne Chris Kanyon: WHA-WHA-WHA. You know bro, its like listening to a record with you. You need to chill and relax...you need to CHILLAX. Take it from CCK, you are a one trick poney. CCK gots a real important question for you Booker...why was your ugly mug on PPV last night and The Champagne was in Hollywood last night?
Booker T: Look sucka, I don't know who rang your bell, but you've picked the wrong night.
Champagne Chris Kanyon: Again...WHA-WHA-WHA.
Booker T: Tell you what why don't you get your punk ass in that ring tonight and I'll make you wha-wha.
Champagne Chris Kanyon: Your on.
CCK walks away laughing to his Dolls, Booker T. just shakes his head and goes the opposite direction.
Scott Hudson: There you have it, tonight Booker T. vs. Champagne Chris Kanyon!
Back at ringside, Tony Schiavone, Mike Tenay and Bobby "The Brain" Heenan recap the events that lead to Chris Benoit vs. Sid Vicious at the PPV last night. Thanks to our friends over at WCW Magazine, we get stills of Benoit defeating Sid Vicious for the vacant world championship. After this we throw it to Mean Gene in the ring.
Mean Gene: Alright fans, its the moment you've all been waiting for. Please welcome my guest at this time. The man who last night took the wrestling world by storm becoming WCW World Champion for the first time...Chris Benoit!
The Crippler heads to the ring to a thunderous pop. We see all kinds of "Benoit" and "Crippler" Signes. A few Rabbid Wolverine. Benoit dressed in full wrestler gear with the brand new "Intensity" Benoit T-Shirt heads to the ring the Big Gold over his shoulder. He enters the ring as the announcers sing his praises talking about how hard he has worked over the years. Iron Mike Tenay puts his text book knowledge of wrestling to work recounting some classic Benoit moments from Japan.
Mean Gene: Chris Benoit, after a little over a decade in the wrestling business you have finally reached to very top, becoming WCW World Champion!
Chris Benoit: Gene, I have been up and down many roads in wrestling. The highs and the lows...There have been plenty. I have worked too long and too hard to let last nights chance pass me by. I've broken too many bones Gene, had too many stitches to let last night pass me by. So when the oppertunity came up and I was given the chance...I took it.
Mean Gene: You faced Sid Vicious in a grueling match up. Any thoughts on your Souled Out opponent and what about a rematch?
Chris Benoit: Sid is a man I've come to respect. We've fought many times before, and if the World Title wasn't on the line. If it wasn't my shot...then that match last night could have went to Sid. But last night was destine to be my night Gene...and I took full advantage of the situation to finally become World Champion.
Mean Gene: Well Chris Benoit the question becomes who is the first man to get a shot at your new Worlds Championship?
Chris Benoit: I will be a fighting champion Gene. Big or small, top of the card down to the guys struggling to get off Saturday Night, a place I've been before. Come one come all because the line starts here.
The Cowboy knock off plays as Jeff Jarrett still in his NWO silver gear heads to the ring, guitar in hand. He talks trash to the fans along the way.
Mean Gene: Now wait a minute here I was in the middle of interviewing Chris Benoit...Jeff Jarrett! Jeff Jarrett what are you doing out here...and why are you wearing that?
Jeff Jarrett: Listen up slap nut, I'm trying to figure out what exactly is going on. Big Kev and the boys are no where to be seen and now I get the news that the guy I was suposed to be beatin on last night is the World Champion? You tell me whats going on Gene!
Mean Gene: You know good and well the NWO was disbanded last night Jeff Jarrett!
Jeff Jarrett: What I know is a hundred times what you or any of these redneck Ohio fans know. Now my question to you..."champ". If I was 100% at Souled Out do you think you'd be carrying that belt right now? No. So I'm saying this right here and now. I want a shot at that belt you claim is your title!
Chris Benoit: How about tonight Jeff, I'll do what I would have done to you last night if you didn't get yourself a headache...make you tap out!
The crowd pops at the idea of Jeff Jarrett vs. Chris Benoit tonight.
Jeff Jarrett: Hey now back up! I ain't cleared to wrestle tonight, but I will be by Superbrawl. And I'm offically challenging you to a match at Superbrawl.
Chris Benoit: You want it?
Jeff Jarrett: More than anything.
Chris Benoit: You got it.
Benoit and Jarrett come nose to nose in the center of the ring. The Announcers point out that the match isn't official yet, but hope management are watching this. Jeff backs off smiling noding and leaves the ring with out touching Benoit.
Back from commercial break and in the ring, 3 Count are preforming their "hit" single, while the fans just tear them apart. They get cut off by the Filthy Animals music. The Announcers say thank god and discuss the feud between the Filthy Animals and the Revolution as we get stills of the Wall attacking the Animals last night.
& vs. &
3 Count w/Shane Helms vs. The Filthy Animals
Another contest that showcased some high flying action. During the bout on the the cameras cut back stage to see The Revolution in full force invade the Animals locker room where Torrie Wilson, Konnan & Rey Misterio Jr. were watching the match. Misterio on crutches was tossed into the wall hard by...The Wall (yeah I know). And then Konnan was smashed over the head by a crutch thanks to Perry Saturn. Torrie Wilson just screamed. Back in the ring, the Animals put away 3 Count dispite outside interference from Shane Helms when Guerrero hit Evan Karagias with a Frog Splash
Winners Via Pinfall: The Filthy Animals when Kidman pinned Karagias
The Animals celebrate their victory when a Torrie Wilson rushes to ringside and tells Billy whats going on back stage and they bail quickly. Guerrero and Kidman rush to the back and the cameras follow them backstage into the locker room area where Misterio and Konnan are layed out. Kidman calls for a trainer as we cut to...
Back from commercial break, we are backstage as a trainer checks on Konnan, who seems better and Misterio who is still out of it. Guerrero and Kidman are pacing back in forth as their fallen teammates are being helped by EMTs. Misterio is loaded on to a gurney and the EMTs said they want to get his knee looked at.
Back ringside as the next match is about to begin, the Announcers talk about the actions of the Revolution as The Disco Inferno alongside the Mamalukes makes his way to the ring. Followed by his opponent Vampiro who carries one half the WCW World Tag Team Championship with him. The Announcers talk briefly about Norman Smiley becoming the most unlikely partner of Vampiro's last night.
Disco Inferno w/The Mamalukes vs. Vampiro
All hell breaks out in this match up. Vampiro easily dominates the Inferno, but the Mamalukes get involved, which brings out the WCW Hardcore Champion and 1/2 The WCW Tag Team Champions with Vampiro..."Big Wiggle" Norman Smiley. Smiley hits the Mamalukes with a Trash Can. While this is happening Vampiro nails Disco with the nail in a coffin for the win.
Winner via Pin Fall: Vampiro
After the match, the brawl continues with Vampiro coming the Mamalukes aid. From the back the Hardcore Soldiers rush the ring with weapons galore and Fit Finlay & Brian Knobbs attack the Tag Team Champions all six men brawl until security pulls them apart and we have to go to...

The old horsemen music brings Arn Anderson and WCW Commissioner Terry Funk to the ring dressed up and all smiles
Arn Anderson: When I called Terry Funk, the simple truth of the matter was I was looking for a crazy son of a bitch to take on the NWO...and thats what I got. Terry you did something no one else could do, you cut the poison out of this company with one match. I thank you for that sir.
Terry Funk: You know Arn, I have to say...I take a lot of pride in what I do. I may be getting older, I may not be as pretty as I used to be. But last night I got to do one thing and that was prove to the entire world that Terry Funk can still do this, and do it well.
"We Want Flair" starts.
Terry Funk: We'll get to him. You know the only reason I became Commissioner of WCW was to rid it of the NWO and now that its done, I don't see much else for me to do with the title Arn. So as of this moment I am stepping down as WCW Commissioner...and I have talked it over with Terry and Paul and Larry and we all agree there is one man for the job...thats the Enforcer!
Crowd pops at this and Arn Smiles a bit. Arn takes the microphone.
Arn Anderson: I accept this role and as my first act of business...I want to bring out the man as of last night we reinstated in World Championship Wrestling...
"WE WANT FLAIR!"
Arn Anderson: The Fifteen time World Champion! The Best Damn Wrestling on the Planet Earth...RIC FLAIR!!!
"Dawn" plays and The Nature Boy walks out onto the stage to a thunderous pop. Decked out in a fine suit, Flair struts down the aisle and into the ring with NEW Commissioner Arn Anderson and Terry Funk.
Ric Flair: Columbus...O-HI-O! WOOOOOOO! The Nature Boy walks that aisle once again. I have the rolex on...I have the hair slicked back...I'm wearing the 500 dollar shirt...The Nature Boy is back!
Ric Flair: This past weekend I was sitting at home, because the Power that Be felt I was washed up...that I was over the hill! They left me in a desert to die. But when the curtain was pulled back, let me tell you something...just like in the wizard of Oz. When the curtainw as pulled back you were seen for what you really were...and no one got any brains! But then Arn called me and he said Naitch...we need you. WCW needs you. I said no. He said the NWO is going to kills us Naitch. I said good! This ship has been dead for months! He said no....no, its time to make WCW the greatest promotion on the planet earth again. Time to wrestle Naitch...time to go out there and show them why WCW is the number one promotion on the planet.
Flair hits the ropes getting worked up.
Ric Flair: After years of tyrants...after putting idiot in control of the ship...now is the time. A New YEAR! W...C...W! WOOOOOO! So climbed aboard my jet plane...I boarded in my limousine...and I came back to steal the kisses...to wheel and deal! WOOOOO! And last night, by God last night...WCW became number one...once again. Chris Benoit is the champion, by gawd, Chris Benoit is the champion!
Ric Flair: I look around at the young and hungry talent in the locker room...No more do I see the dead eyes of yesterday. The glass ceiling is shattered and now the three of us...we are in charge of the greatest show in the world. So WCW, get ready. The longest line in the world is still space mountain baby...and the best wrestling is in WCW. WOOOOOOO
"Dawn" hits as Arn Anderson and Ric Flair hug. Terry Funk joins in and the crowd is going nuts.
- We see Jeff Jarrett watching on a monitor...he just shakes his head.
Back from break, we are informed that this Wednesday Night on Thunder on TBS, the vacant US Championship will be filled by four men on the roster who are climbing up the ladder. From the Filthy Animals Eddie Guerrero, from the Revolution former US Champion Dean Malenko, the Gothic Warrior Vampiro and Booker T. Fatal four way for the vacant US Championship!
This brings us to our next match as Champagne Chris Kanyon from Hollywood hits the ring with his Champagne girls. Booker T is out next to a great pop from the crowd.
Champagne Chris Kanyon vs. Booker T
Great back and forth match with the announcers really putting over Booker T and to a lesser extent Kanyon. Kanyon tries some underhanded tactics and nearly pulls off the win but Booker rebounds and nails a bookend setting up the missle drop kick for the 1, 2, 3.
Winner Via Pin Fall: Booker T
Booker T celebrates the win while the announcers again plug Thunder on TBS Weds. Featuring Booker T in a four way for the vacant US Championship
Back from commercial we are backstage with Scott Hudson and the Revolution's leader Shane Douglas and the Wall
Scott Hudson: Last night at Souled Out Shane Douglas you revealed your newest member to the Revolution...The Wall. And it had a huge impact on the Filthy Animals. Earlier tonight you and your gang attacked Konnan and Rey Misterio in the locker room, why not do it out in the ring why resort to underhanded tactics?
Shane Douglas: First off Scott Hudson, this is no Gang...it is a Revolution. We are sick and tired of being held down in WCW. Management may come and go but their goal is always the same...push down the workers...control the flow of cash. Supress the talent. The Filthy Animals should be on our side...they should see the light but they don't. Thats why I sicked the Wall on them last night and thats why I sent a message tonight. Beware of the Revolution. If your not with us, your just a casualty of war...
Douglas laughs and he and the Wall walk off as we Cut to the Ring where Revolution members Perry Saturn and Dean Malenko are in the ring ready to face their opponents...A SCREAM AND CRAZY LAUGH fills the PA and the Psycho City come to the ring lead by Daffney. The team of David Flair & Crowbar looked focused ever since loosing their titles last night on PPV
& vs. &
The Revolution vs. Psycho City w/Daffney
Much like all other Psycho City matches, Crowbar does all the work while Flair and Daffney make eyes at each other. Saturn and Malenko easily take apart the former tag team champions and Crowbar submits to the rings of saturn for the win.
Winners via submission: The Revolution
Following the match, Eddie Guerrero, Konnan and Billy Kidman hit the ring weapons in hand and take out Dean Malenko and Perry Saturn. This brings The Wall and Douglas out and they engage the Animals in brawl. All seven brawl at ringside until security can break it up. Terry Taylor leads Security down and forces the two factions apart.
Back from Commercial break, we are in the back with Chris Benoit getting ready for his upcoming match when Ric Flair walks up to him. Flair is all smiles.
Ric Flair: Chris, I am so happy for you man. You deserve it.
Chris Benoit: I have you to think for helping me get here Ric. You taught me so much.
Ric Flair: Well, I hope you have a title shot in there for an old man. Cause you know the saying...To be the man, your gonna have to beat the man. WOOO!
Chris nods and smiles as he and Flair embrace and Flair moves on leaving Benoit to warm up. Tony says that Chris Benoit will face Meng later tongiht on Nitro...
ON THE STAGE
Mean Gene Oakerland calls out his guest at this time, the man who put Buff Bagwell on the injured list last night...Diamond Dallas Page.
Page enters to the stage to a chorus of boos. Page shrugs them off.
Mean Gene: Dallas Page, the fans out here have voiced the same reaction many in the back are at you right now. They think what you did to Buff Bagwell was sick.
DDP: Look, Fluff Bagwell knew what he was getting into when he crossed the line and started putting the moves on my wife! As for you fans, you can kiss my ass.
DDP: I was done with the need of being the Peoples Champion a long time ago...I'm a superstar. I'm a legend and you fans pay your money to see me! Not Buff Bagwell. So Buff I know your at home watching this with you cracked skull...all I have to say to you is this...
DDP holds his hands up in the diamond shape...and brings it down.
Out of the back emgerges Sid Vicious
Mean Gene: Sid Vicious the man facing Diamond Dallas Page tonight in the main event. What are you doing out here.
Sid Vicious: I don't care what you did to Buff Bagwell last night. I don't care who has or hasn't been with your wife...What I want you to understand is last night I came this close to being World Champion. And tonight I want you to know this, when you step into the ring with the Master and Ruller of the World...what I do to you isn't because of your actions...its because you are just in my way.
DDP: Is dat so?
Sid Vicious: Because the only BANG your gonna feel tonight...is when I Power BOMB YOU THROUGH THE MAT!
Sid laughs and walks away as DDP just stares off at him.
Back from break and the unstoppable monster Meng is in the ring waiting his opponent...The World Champion Chris Benoit. As the World Champion makes his way to the ring we once again get the Souled Out Replay plugged by announcers.
Meng vs. Chris Benoit
Very physcial match up. Lots of brutal chops and stiff punches. The match ends with the TRIO German Suplex from Benoit and the Flying head butt for the 1, 2, 3.
Winner Via Pinfall: Chris Benoit
After the match Benoit hoist the World Championship over his head, only to be attacked from behind by the Harris Brothers!
The Twin Towers continue the assault until the Champion starts fighting back with chops and hard rights. The announcers don't know what provoked this attack until Jeff Jarrett slides into the ring with guitar in hand and as Benoit turns he breaks the guitar over the Champions head. He flanks The Harris Brothers and Jarrett picks up the world championship holding it above his head while Benoit lays motionless.
Jarrett tosses the belt down at Benoit before leaving with the Harris Brothers. The Announcers say they need to take a break to check on the champion.
Video of Lex Luger in Sting's outfit attacking Bam Bam Bigelow on Thunder during Bigelow's match with Kanyon. We see short video of Luger dressed as Sting over the past couple of weeks and footage of his attack on Sting at Starrcade that put the Stinger on the shelf.
The Total Package w/Miss Elixabeth vs. Bam Bam Bigelow
Most of this not very good wrestling match sees the announcers talking about Luger putting Sting out of action at Starrcade. Luger is on the verge of winning and goes for the Torture Rack when the lights start to flicker... In the rafters we can see a figure pointing a bat down at Luger. Luger drops Bigelow and starts freaking out. On the TurnerTron we see the message...02-20-00 Its SHOWTIME....Luger bails form the ring when another figure in a Sting mask appears in the audiance pointing the bat. Luger heads up the ramp and to the back with Elizabeth leaving Bam Bam and the referee counting. 1...2....3....4....5....6....7....8....9....10!
Winner Via Count Out: Bam Bam Bigelow
Bam Bam Bigelow looks up with a smile on his face at the 02-20-00 Its ShowTime Graphic. The Announcers conclude that Sting is sending Lex Luger a message about Superbrawl on PPV.
Back and its time for the main event...DDP vs. Sid Vicious. DDP is out first with Kimberly in tow. Again the announcers talk about what happened at Souled Out with Buff Bagwell. Sid is out next and heads to the ring focused...
Diamond Dallas Page w/Kimberly vs. Sid Vicious
These two pull of a classic Nitro Main Event...plenty of brawling. DDP using his speed to stay out of Sid's power moves. After another commercial break, DDP has Sid on the ropes targeting the same knee Benoit did at the PPV. Sid battles back and the action spills to the outside. Sid and DDP battle up the aisle and back down with Sid dominating DDP. Back in the ring DDP hits a low blow and starts his comeback. Kimberly on the outside much like last night almost seems comatose...stoic. The action gets underway with Sid going for a chokeslam. But DDP hits a Diamond Cutter out of it. makes the cover 1...2...KICK OUT
Page Can't believe it. Sid is up and on a warpath...DDP bails out of the ring and grabs Kimberly by the hand taking off. Sid Vicious follows. Sid finds Page down the aisle with a few lefts and rights...the Announcers HATE TO DO THIS.....BUT THEIR OUT OF TIME
We fade to black with the bell ringing and Sid being whipped into the guardrail in the aisle....TUNE INTO THUNDER TO FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENS FOLKS...

Re: WCW 2000: New Blood Rising
Before I start the review I would just like to say that I love this period of time and think that you can do alot with this BTB if you stick with it, so good luck.
Nice opening with Flair, Anderson and Funk entering the arena. Plenty of possibilities regarding these three.
Good win for Blitzkrieg to start off with. Short amount of text but it would have been a good match. Little feud to kick off the show, Lash Leroux never really excited me but I think he has enough talent to be pushed correctly.
Booker and Kanyon starting a feud up backstage is good. Both very talented at this point and underpushed, hopefully you can give them some good air time.
Nice little promo with the new World Champion and I like having Jarrett taking on Benoit at Superbrawl but it just felt abit rushed and Jarrett didnt seem to deserve the shot. I suppose you are going down the route of Benoit being a big babyface and taking on all challenges from opponents.
Good win for the Filthy Animals, hopefully they get a nice push up the card but the thing I didnt understand. Torrie came out to tell Billy, when Kidman got backstage he found himself and Misterio laid out and then called for a trainer? Think you need to have a quick re-read of your writing.
A win for Vampiro is always good as I think he is a good talent that was also in the same boat as Kanyon and Booker T who was underpushed. A three team match is what you are aiming for could be intersting but I would only be interested in seeing the Mamalukes as Champions.
Love the Superbrawl image!!
So Flair is back which is good, look forward to seeing what you do with him.
Four way for the U.S belt. I presume Booker will be the new champion which I have no problems with.
I love the Revolution and remember enjoying watching them at this period of time. You have some really talented guys in the company and to have the Revolution feuding with the Filthy Animals is a good move.
Nice to see Benoit on the show with a win over Meng. Not really a fan of you jobbing Meng but as its the World Champion its not the end of the world.
Harris Brothers helping Jeff Jarrett is good as it helps develop Jarretts heel character.
Luger against Bigelow would be a pretty big match up, and seeing the Stinger in the rafters is always good. PLease have Sting come back and retire Luger, Please!!
DDP and Sid putting on a classic would be suprising. Going down the route of having two babyfaces face off in the future would be good.
Overall it was a good show, I think you got some things bang on and a few things were off. Personally you are lacking in Main Event heels. Only Jeff Jarrett can be classified as a Main Event heel apart from maybe Luger. I am assuming you will be bringing back Main Event heels in the coming weeks but having Flair, Benoit, Sting, DDP and Sid as faces and then Luger and Jarrett as the heels is a bit off. Having the Four way for the U.S belt on Thunder is a mistake in my opinion, have it on next weeks Nitro or at Superbrawl. Im still abit puzzled as why you are doing 3 hour Nitros and 2 hour Thunders. Thats alot of writing, I know you have a big roster but I am sure you can reduce the amount of T.V time there is.
But I enjoyed reading and reviewing and look forward to future shows.
