Default WCW 2001: The Day The Earth Stood Still



In 2001, AOL Time Warner announced that after over a decade of ownership, it was selling World Championship Wrestling. The battle for ownership for the company would be fought with two sides using everything they have to win the ownership of the company. Eric Bischoff, the former Executive Vice-President of the company, brought WCW into mainstream with the signing of Hulk Hogan in 1994. Eric Bischoff would dominate the Wrestling World as the power behind World Championship Wrestling for the better half of the 1990s. The other interested party was Vincent Kennedy McMahon, the Owner and Chairman of World Wrestling Federation, the rival company to WCW. For years, Vince McMahon and his family have been waiting for the moment they could come in and buy up their competition; putting a monopoly on the wrestling industry.

This thread begins on March 26, 2001, the night the final WCW Nitro aired on TNT. With only hours to go before Nitro went on air, nobody knew for certain who purchased WCW and what the fate of the company would be.


WCW Monday Nitro Results
Live from Panama City Beach, Florida
Monday, March 26, 2001

The show ends with Vince McMahon again via satellite from the Gund Arena, this time in the middle of the RAW ring. McMahon gloats on his purchase of WCW when Shane McMahon arrives in Panama City Beach. Shane McMahon announces that WCW was sold to a McMahon, but it wasnít Vince McMahon, it was Shane McMahon.

Once Shane McMahon announces that he purchased World Championship Wrestling, the lights in Panama go off. Fans in WCW and WWF go nuts in anticipation for what is going to happen next.

When the lights come back on in Panama City Beach, Shane McMahon is standing in the middle of ring with Scott Hall, Kevin Nash, and Hollywood Hulk Hogan stand behind him. Fans in WCW and WWE watched as the NWO destroyed Shane McMahon in the middle of the ring. Hogan tore Shane McMahonís shirt off and pulled off his weight belt before smacking it across the back of McMahon. Nash power bombs McMahon and Scott Hall pulls out spray paint and spays NWO on the back of Shane McMahon.

Eric Bischoffís music plays and the former executive producer and President makes his way down to the ring. Eric Bischoff addresses Vince McMahon and everyone from Nitro and RAW.

Eric Bischoff:
Iím only going to say 1 thing... WCW Monday Nitro Live from Charlotte, North Carolina next week starting at 9:00 pm on FOX! You want answers; youíll get answers next week!

Eric Bischoff drops the microphone and leaves the ring with Hulk Hogan and the NWO.

World Championship Wrestling News
WCW.com has announced a number of releases following the final WCW Nitro telecast on TNT. Evan Karagais, Shannon Moore, Yang, Kaz Hayashi, Jamie Noble, Elix Skipper, Kid Romeo, Bam Bam Bigelow, Jason Jett, Disco Inferno, M.I. Smooth, and Konan are just some of the names released today. Rick Steiner will be joining Arn Anderson and Terry Taylor backstage.

As announced last night on Nitro, WCW has signed a television deal with FOX TV. The new television deal keeps WCW Nitro as the flagship show airing live from 9:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. est. The deal also gives WCW a Saturday Night timeslot from 11:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. prior to MAD TV. This new television deal has been kept in the dark for the last few days while WCW continued it's transition.

Nothing is reported as who the owner of the company is. Many believe that Vince McMahon has purchased the company and is using Eric Bischoff as a storyline. Others believe that Eric Bischoff is the true owner of WCW. Hopefully more answers will be given in the coming days.

Good start but not sure why you got rid of pretty much the whole Cruiserweight division, everyone of them has talent as well as Bam Bam Bigelow in my opinion. Its a good start and I presume you will run with Bischoff as the owner and have the nWo run wild over WCW once again. The T.V deal news looks good. Good luck and I will be reviewing

It's pretty clear Vince McMahon has bought the company, otherwise this would never happen obviously. I hope you keep the Cruiserweight division a big part of WCW because it's the reason many people still tuned in. I'm actually not too fond of the nWo being brought back AGAIN, because the nWo was waaay overdone at that point, plus Hogan and Nash played a big part in WCW's demise, but if you can make it interesting then fine. Good luck.

Looks decent so far. You fired a lot of good wrestlers though. All those cruiser weights? Bam Bam could have been used well too. Its a good story though but it could go a lot of ways. The N.W.O. is hit or miss. I could see this whole take over angle fizzling out fast and then all you have left to work with is the same old wcw.

I have read many btb's that have began at this time and I have even tried to start some of my own at this time. Since there are so many different ways to take it it is very intersting to see what people come up with. So far this one has got me hooked more then any other btb from this time. I like the suspense and how you have people guessing with whats gonna happen next. At first I was expecting just a WWF vs WCW war but instead Bischoff and the nWo completely threw me off. I know alot of people think the nWo was overused and its true they were but I still think if used right then they could still be an important factor to a wrestling promotion and you seem to be using them right so far. I hope you keep the nwo to just Hogan Nash n Hall for now and maybe add one or two members down the road to keep it fesh but im sure you know what your doing. I am surprised with the releases of most of the crusierweight division, hope your not planning of getting rid of the division and instead bring in some new crusierweights to freshen it up. Anyway good luck with this and ill be reading on for sure.

WCW Monday Nitro
April 2, 2001
Live from Charlotte, North Carolina
Fox TV


The show starts with Eric Bischoff making standing in the middle of a dark arena with only a spotlight shining on him. Bischoff is suited up in his business attire and has dyed his hair black once again.

Eric Bischoff: Controversy, itís what you do to get wrestling fans hooked onto your product. Whether itís turning the ultimate good guy against everything he ever stood for, or going live every week and giving away your competitorís results before they go on air. Controversy is what delivers for wrestling fans. Last week, controversy delivered once again. You see, for years Iíve wanted the McMahons to come onto my show and play in my yard. Last week they did, now look where Shane McMahon is. Heís lying in a hospital bed back in Connecticut after the beat down by the N.W.O. Controversy gave WCW its highest rated segment in 2001 and also brought WCW together with WWF for 1 night. Controversy is what the new WCW is all about. Starting tonight and ending when WWF is finally buried once and for all, and Vince McMahon is on my show working for me. Vince McMahon, I took out your son last week. I made you believe that you owned WCW, I made you come so close to having the company that you even went so far as to broadcast MY Monday Nitro in your arena, and on your telecast. This is a whole new war, and itís one that I intend on winning. This is the new WCW!!!!

The Pyro goes off in Charlotte, North Carolina and the WCW Logo set has returned; this time with a red logo instead of silver. Behind the Logo entrance are two huge video screens on either side of the set.

Tony Schiavone: Welcome everyone to the first WCW Nitro on our new home FOX TV. Iím Tony Schiavone, soon to be joined by my broadcast colleague. Tonight promises to be chalked full of surprises at WCW kicks off a new era in 2001, and trust me when I say that you cannot predict whatís going to happen here.

Great Gate of Kiev plays and Jerry ďthe KingĒ Lawler debuts on WCW Monday Nitro. Lawler
Is accompanied by ďthe KatĒ as he walks over to the broadcast booth; joining Tony Schiavone as the new voice of WCW.

Tony Schiavone: I cannot believe what Iím seeing, Jerry ďthe KingĒ Lawler has arrived in WCW.

The King: Thatís right Tony; itís good to be the King, especially when you get to rule over WCW Monday Nitro. The Kat and the King are delighted to be in the greatest company in the world.

Tony Schiavone: Well, your presence is certainly unexpected, but most pleasurable.

The King: When I was offered to be a part of the new WCW, I knew that this was an era worth watching. Iíve been in wrestling for years, and nothing feels better than to be here working beside you Schiavone.

Tony Schiavone: Well letís kick things off right, letís go to David Penzer for the opening contest.

WCW Cruiserweight Championship
Sugar Shane Helms (c) vs. Vampiro

Vampiro hits a baseball slide on Helms as the champion is entering the ring. The two of the fight on the outside before the champion is rolled into the ring. Vampiro climbs onto the apron and leaps off the top rope. With a flip, Vamprio lands on Helms and the match officially begins. Vampiro dominates Helms for most of the match. With a series of pins, Vampiro only manages to get near falls on the champion. Shane Helms battles back and, with a dropkick, sends Vampiro to the outside of the ring. Shane jumps off the top rope with a cross body on Vampiro. The match climaxes inside the ring with Shane Helms nailing the Nightmare on Helms Street and grabbing the victory over Vampiro.

As the men continue to fight Hogan, security comes along. The two men fight off security and continue to whip Hogan into an extra guardrail backstage. Hogan is blood now as the two men continue to kick and punch away at the Icon. The bigger man picks up Hogan and power bombs him through a table. They leave a bloody Hulk Hogan lying on the ground.

Commercial

Backstage, EMTs are shown helping Hulk Hogan as Eric Bischoff is standing there.

Tony: I canít believe that someone would attack Hulk Hogan like that.

The King: You know Tony, after all these years of beating people up with the NWO, it only seems right that it happens to Hulk.

Tony: Well itís still uncalled for. Letís head back to the ring for more action.

Buff Bagwell vs. Jeff Jarrett
Jeff Jarrett jumps Buff Bagwell before the bell rings. With rights and lefts Bagwell is sent into the ropes. Jarrett whips him across the ring but Bagwell leap frogs over and hits a hip toss on the Chosen One. Jarrett and Bagwell continue to go at it in and out of the ring with Charles Robinson having to start counting them out on several occasions. Back in the ring, Jarrett hits the Stroke on Bagwell and covers him, but Bagwell manages to get his foot on the rope before the three. Bagwell slowly gets back to his feet and nails Jarrett with the low blow. Buff shoots off the ropes with a swinging neck breaker and then climbs to the top rope. When Jarrett gets back on his feet, Bagwell dives off with the Buff Blockbuster and covers Jeff for a 1...2...3.
Winner: Buff Bagwell via pinfall at 4:32

Buff Bagwell celebrates his victory in the middle of the ring. Jeff Jarrett gets back on his feet and grabs his guitar. In one swift swing, Jarrett cracks the guitar across the head of Bagwell. Jarrett leaves Bagwell lying in the ring.

Eric Bischoff is sitting at his desk backstage when Jeremy Borash asks to come in. Bischoff grants JBís request.

JB: I was wondering if I could get a word with you Mr. Bischoff.

Eric: Please, call me Eric, and yes I would be happy to speak with you JB.

JB: Well, many around here in WCW are wondering what is going to happen with the United States Championship now that Booker T is the World Heavyweight Champion.

Eric: Thatís a great question to ask. You see JB, Iíve been talking with JJ Dillon and the Championship Committee about the United States Title. The committee and I have agreed that a new United States Champion will be crowned at Spring Stampede in a triple threat match. The Triple Threat Match will feature Buff Bagwell, Jeff Jarrett, and Mark Jindrack.

JB: Thatís quite an announcement for Spring Stampede.

Eric: I thought it was a good match; however I also thought that we would need a match that will be sure to test the new World Heavyweight Champion. So Iíve created a brand new match that would put 6 of the top wrestlers in the most brutal match ever invented, the Elimination Chamber.

JB: Whatís an Elimination Chamber?

Eric: Youíll find out all the details in due time. I will tell you though that the five men who will join Booker T in the Elimination Chamber will be decided over the next few weeks on Nitro. Tonightís qualifying match will feature Big Poppa Pump Scott Steiner taking on Big Sexy Kevin Nash.

JB: Thank you for your time Eric.

Eric: Just before you go JB, please pass along this little message. The controversy continues tonight as some familiar faces make their return to WCW. Vince McMahon will not know what hit him.

Commercial

Kronik vs. The Harris Twins
The match is saw two powerful teams lock up in the middle of the ring with both teams using power holds on each other. Brian Adams hits a Power Bomb on Ron Harris and covers him, but Don makes the save. With referee Nick Patrick distracted, the Harris Twins hit a double suplex on Clarke.

In the end, Brian Adams and Bryan Clarke hit the High Times on Ron Harris. Clarke covers Ron for a 1...2...3.
Winners: Kronik via pinfall at 4:29

Backstage, Mean Gene Oakerlund is standing with the Nature Boy Ric Flair.

Mean Gene: This is Mean Gene Oakerlund standing alongside the 14-time World Heavyweight Champion, the Nature Boy Ric Flair.

Fans give a huge pop

Flair: WOOOO Mean Gene, I think weíre having a party tonight. WOOOO! You see, what would WCW be in Charlotte, North Carolina without the Nature Boy?

Mean Gene: Well I heard a rumour tonight that youíre facing Shane Douglas.

Flair: Thatís right Gene. For years, Shane Douglas has been coming out here spouting his mouth off about how the Nature Boy doesnít deserve to be at the top of the mountain, that my time has passed and itís up to people like him to take this business forward. Well I say this. Where was Shane Douglas when the Nature Boy was touring the world and selling out arenas everywhere I went? Thatís right, he was working in little bingo halls making $50.00 a night wrestling for fans who didnít give a damn about anything but the beer they were drinking.

Mean Gene: That sounds a little harsh.

Flair: Itís the truth Mean Gene. The Nature Boy has always been the greatest performer in the wrestling business. I took WCW to where it is now and plan on taking it to greater heights in the year 2001... WOOOO!

Ric Flair leaves Mean Gene standing backstage.

Commercial

The World Heavyweight Champion makes his entrance through the WCW Logo set and grabs a seat beside Tony Schiavone and Jerry Lawler. They talk a little bit about what this Elimination Chamber might be.

Elimination Chamber Qualifying Match
Big Poppa Pump Scott Steiner vs. Big Sexy Kevin Nash

Scott Steiner nails Nash with a series of uppercuts on Kevin Nash before whipping him across the ring. A shoulder block sends Nash staggering back into the ropes and Steiner clotheslines him over the top rope. Steiner goes out after Nash slams him into the ring steps then rolls him back into the ring. Nash fights back and hits the sidewalk slam on Big Poppa Pump. Nash backs Steiner into the corner and nails him with a series of elbows to the face, then drives a boot into the throat of the former world champion. The match ends with Steiner knocking the referee to the canvas inadvertently. Big Poppa Pump grabs a steal chair and repeatedly cracks it across the back of Big Sexy. Steiner then continues the assault by jumping on the back of Nash several times and driving an elbow into the lower back area. Steiner slaps the Steiner Recliner on Nash who taps out. Referee Nick Patrick slowly gets up and sees Nash tapping then calls for the bell.
Winner: Big Poppa Pump via Submission at 6:32

Big Poppa Pump moves on to the Main Event at Spring Stampede.

The King: Well Booker T, you now know who the first person is to be joining you inside the Elimination Chamber.

Booker T: Thatís right King, but it doesnít matter who qualifies for the elimination chamber, the bottom line is that at Spring Stampede, Booker T is going to walk out still the World Heavyweight Champion.

Commercial

Video: Goldberg is coming... Whoís Next?

Shane Doulas makes his way down to the ring area to prepare for his match against Ric Flair.

The Nature Boyís music erupts and the 14-time World Champion makes his way out to the ring. Ric Flair is accompanied by Miss Elisabeth and Stacey Keibler and is dawning his Black and Silver robe. The pyro goes off as the fans go nuts for Ric Flair.

Main Event
Shane Douglas vs. Nature Boy Ric Flair (w. Stacey Keibler)

Flair starts the match with a series of knife-edge chops that back Shane Douglas into the corner.

As the match progresses, Flair continues to beat down the leg of Shane Douglas. Finally the figure four is put on and Flair applies pressure to the leg of his opponent. Shane Douglas fights to get out of the hold, but Flair continues to lock the hold on Douglas. Shane Douglas finally manages to roll over and counter the Figure Four, but the Nature Boy grabs the ropes. Elisabeth gets on the apron and distracts the referee, allowing Shawn Stasiak to enter the ring. Stasiak takes a chair and smashes it across the head of Shane Douglas. Flair rolls Douglas up for a 1...2...3.
Winner: Nature Boy Ric Flair via pinfall at 7:55

After the match, Ric Flair calls down for help. Sean OíHair, Chuck Polumbo, and Mark Jindrack make their way down to the ring to join Flair and Stasiak. All four men lay a beating on Shane Douglas in the middle of the ring. Flair slaps the figure four on again and the other four men take turns dropping elbows and legs across the chest of Douglas.

Three men jump over the guardrail and get involved in the beat down; going after the Natural Born Thrillers. Chris Benoit, Dean Malenko and Perry Saturn even the score and force the Natural Born Thrillers to leave the ring. Flair gets out as well and retreats to the back. Saturn, Malenko, and Benoit stand tall in the middle of the ring as Nitro goes off air.

hitman review for Monday Nitro


The opening was good and needed as there were questions that needed to be answered. I'm not sure if we've seen the last of Shane McMahon or not, I would expect if he got beaten down then he would be working for the company as the nWo couldnt actually put a beat down on someone in real life. I hope more evolves from this.

Happy to see you put the logo entrance back. I know people have different feelings torwards it but I was always a fan of it for some reason so good to see its back with some updates.

Lawler joining the broadcast team is great and works out since he was not working for the WWF at the time and he was available. Really a huge upgrade to the WCW broadcast team. I couldn't tell from just this show if Lawler is a heel or face broadcaster, I hope he's a heel as I have always been a fan of a face and a comedic likeable heel broadcast combo and besides Bobby Heenan, Lawler was the best at that.

Surprised to see Vampiro in the crusierweight division but i guess it could work if people like Disco Inferno, Jericho and others held the title, dont think Vampiro any bigger then them. Really upgrades the crusierweight division if you decide to leave Vampiro in it.

Intrigued to see who attacked Hulk. Like i said before i hope Shane mcmahon has something to do with this as it would be odd to just see him vanish after a beatdown from the nwo.

Looks like Bagwell and Jarett could be getting into a program together which could be good if done right. I would of just had Bagwell and Jarett compete for the US title. Jindrak sounds kind of random to be added and Bagwell and Jarett were prob two of the top mid carders at the time so that match could of had enough cred. Maybe should of tried to build up a little more maybe have Jindrak vs Jarett next week then Bagwell attacks Jarett during the match for hitting him with a guitar then Jindrak attacks Bagwell for getting him DQ'ed and all three men brawl then the match is set up. Spring Stampede is still four weeks away so no need to rush some of the matches together but i look forward to see where you go with this n hope you spice it up a little bit.

Nice to see the elimmination chamber in WCW. I like how you are gonna have qualifying matches instead of just naming the 5men in it. Steiner is deff a must in this match and happy you put him in first as he was the top heel at the time.

I understand the backstory to Flair and Douglas and was happy to see you have these two finally face off but at first i didnt like the idea of them main eventing the first episode of nitro in the new WCW but after reading I see why you had this on the card where it was. Having Benoit, Malenko and Saturn show up makes me really believe that we havent heard the last from the Mcmahons. i'm hoping this is part of something big you have planned.

Overall a good first show that answered some questions but also provided many more questions im looking forward to find out the answers to. I'm excited to see where this go's. Good luck with your next show.

So Bishoff made Vince think he had bought Nitro? Its a little out in left field but I like it!

Not too big on Lawler coming in but it works.

Is Vampiro even a cruiserweight? Still nice to see a CW title match open the show. Cruiserweights are what made WCW what it was, I you use them alot!

Nice segment with Hogan being attacked, gives you something to think about first thing.

Love, love, love that you are using the championship committie and JJ Dillon. It gives the titles more credibility I think.

I like the idea of the elimination chamber for the US title. Again it gives that belt credibilty. Usually you only see world titles defended in these types of special matches. Much better than just throwing out the usual tournement. At first I was let down you were stealing Vince's idea and calling it an elimination chamber but I did my research and the first wwe chamber match was in 2002 so this works well. I hope you do a good job describing it to us since in 2001 no one has a clue what it is.

Nice to see a little tag team action.

The Flair segment worked and I love the idea of a Douglas-Flair fued because there is so much real life hatred there. But being in the heart of Flair country I would have rather saw him come out to the ring and do an interview. I think that would have been a big segment and a must really when Nitro is in Charolette. The fans expect it. I for one would have been pissed if I came and all I got was a backstage interview before his match.

Glad to see Scottie going to the main event over Nash. I might have missed it but where the hell did Booker T. come from? All of a sudden Lawler is talking to him?

Main event was nice. You got Flair over plus took the time to show six over guys on tv. Benoit, Malenko, Saturn? Wait don't they work for vince at this time? Interesting!!!

Overall a very solid show. The only disapointment was no big Flair in ring interview. That and no N.W.O. segment? Not that thats a bad thing though just odd. But anyway very solid start. I like the way the show is written. It's recaped enough that it doesn't take you days to write it and me an hour to read through it but it has enough content in it so the show flows well and I know 100% what is going on.
