WCW 2000: The New Blood
 

WCW
The New Blood

September 1999
Eric Bischoff is removed as the President and Executive Producer of WCW Wrestling. He is replaced by Vince Russo and Ed Farara who have taken on the position due to their mediocre rise to the success of WWFís attitude era.

October 1999
Hulk Hogan leaves WCW after being asked by management to take a hiatus. This is the start of the New Blood movement by Russo and Farara to take out the main stars of WCW and put the young guns of WCW in the for front.

November 1999
A World Championship Tournament is held for the vacated belt at WCW Mayhem 1999. Storylines in WCW start to drastically become inconsistent and many of the wrestlers are alienated backstage. WCW is showing signs of heading downstream and Time Warner officials are left wondering what their next steps are with the company.

December 1999
Turner officials decided to make drastic changes to WCW over the next few days. Eric Bischoff was brought back to work with Vince Russo and to oversee what Russo was doing behind the scenes. The company let go of a number of wrestlers from their roster to save on costs associated with WCW. TNT announced that WCW Nitro was going to be going back to a 2 hour format in 2000. The final broadcast of WCW Nitro for 1999 was going to be December 13 with a special WCW Year In Review broadcast airing on the 20th. TBS announced the cancelation of Saturday Night and its intent on making Thunder a 90 minute broadcast on Wednesday Nights.

Re: WCW 2000: The New Blood
 
WCW Nitro Preview:

The New Millennium kicks off with a new focus as Hollywood Hulk Hogan takes the reigns as WCW President. How will the WCW locker room react to the changes Hogan plans on making? Will Hollywood be fair or will his close friends get favouritism?

A New Year/A New Champion. Chris Benoit made a surprise main event at Starrcade when he cashed in his World Title Shot following Bret Hart's match with Bill Goldberg. Benoit shocked the world when he defeated the Hitman to become WCW Heavyweight Champion. Will Bret get his return match? Who will be the new No. 1 Contender for the WCW Championship?

The Macho Man made his return to Pay-Per-View during the Lex Luger/Sting contest. With Savage taking back Elizabeth the Total Package has been left with nothing. How will Luger react?

WCW Nitro kicks off the year 2000 with a bang this week. 9PM EST only on TNT.

Re: WCW 2000: The New Blood
 
Hmmm definite potential, especially with the Bret/Benoit feud. Good luck with this.

Re: WCW 2000: The New Blood
 
I like the changes you have made to the '99 Starrcade card. I hope you have something better planned for the US title with Buff Bagwell though. It will definitely be interesting to see how Hogan/Flair/Benoit and the likes match up against Jarrett/Hart/Nash.

Good luck with this mate.

PS On a personal side note, I really hope you get rid of Midnight for Harlem Heat but keep the Heat together and going!

WCW Monday Nitro
Bi-Lo Center, Greenville SC
January 3, 2000


Nitro kicks off with the opening theme featuring the Nitro Girls and the WCW Nitro Logo.

Tony and Bobby Heenan welcome fans to the Bi-Lo Center in Greenville as the first Nitro of the new millennium kicks off.

ďVoodoo ChildĒ plays and Hollywood Hulk Hogan comes out wearing a black suit and a red shirt with his Yellow Hulkamania bandanna. Hogan gets a great reaction from the crowd as he climbs into the ring and prepares his inaugural speech as President of WCW.

Hulk: Whatís up Hulkamaniacs! WCW is now in the year 2000 with a brand new direction brother. With Hollywood Hulk Hogan as the new sheriff in town, things around here are going to start changing brother. When I was asked to take this job, the executives at Turner wanted to be quite clear with me; as long as Iím the muscle behind the new WCW Iím not able to step into this ring and compete. Thatís alright though brother because WCW is now about making changes that will protect this company moving forward. We recently got rid of a lot of dead weight backstage, but thereís still a lot to do to keep this company at the top of the world brother. Tonight is a whole new beginning with brand new champions in WCW and a different attitude brother so first off I want to call out the new WCW Heavyweight Champion of the World, Chris Benoit.

The Crippler Chris Benoit comes out with the WCW Heavyweight Championship around his shoulder as he walks to the ring. Benoit is joined by Dean Malenko and Perry Saturn but there is no sign of Shane Douglas, Ric Flair, or Buff Bagwell. The three of them get in the ring and shake Hoganís hand.

Hulk: Listen Chris, I know how youíre feeling right now brother. Youíre on cloud nine as the new WCW Champion and I am proud to say that you are the Champion of the World brother. Now that being said, there is a lot of competition around WCW who are just waiting of the chance to jump into no manís land and take you out brother.

Chris is handed a microphone and addresses the President of WCW.

Chris: First off I want to say thank you Hulk for putting me in the position of being the flag bearer for World Championship Wrestling. I had no idea when I arrived at Starrcade that I would have the opportunity to walk out the New WCW World Heavyweight Champion. That is a moment I will cherish for the rest of my life. Tonight weíre down to business here in WCW. This is a new year, a new Millennium and I am the New Champion.

Hulk: Thatís the fight thatís going to take WCW and you to a whole new level brother. Tonight is going to be a completely different night for WCW brother. Weíre supposed to be gearing up for Souled Out this week, but with the scheduling changes weíre now looking towards Superbrawl 2000. Tonight weíre going to start an 8 man tournament to determine who will wrestle you for the WCW Heavyweight Championship at Superbrawl Brother.

Hogan is interrupted by Bret Hart, Jeff Jarrett, Kevin Nash, Ron Harris, and Don Harris.

Bret: Excuse me for just one second Hulk, let me get this straight...BROTHER! Youíre telling me that I donít even get my chance to regain my WCW World Title? There shouldnít be a tournament because that belt belongs to me. I was screwed once again.

Hulk: Let me just let you in on a secret here Bret Hart, WCW is no longer controlled by the manipulative Powers that Be. The prima donnas of the back are out and Iím in brother.

Bret: Thatís rich coming from you Hulk. If you had your way you would have walked out of Starrcade with that belt. Everyone knows you donít job to nobody.


Hulk: Chris Benoit is every bit as deserving as any other wrestler in the back brother. And if you want a war dude, then youíre going to get one brother.

Bret: Oh thereís going to be a war Hulk. Here, allow me to introduce the Powers That Be...


Vince Russo comes out to the entrance and joins Bret Hart and the rest of the team.

Vince: Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Vince Russo and I am your worst nightmare. These guys here, they are the Creative Control around here and Hulk, I just want you to know that Iím extremely pissed off with you.

Hulk: Thatís great Vince. You know Iíve already bodyslammed one guy in this industry named Vince and he was a much bigger guy than you brother. You step one foot in my ring and Iíll kick your ass.


Vince: The Creative Control is going to take back the control of WCW and then youíre going to be out of a job Hulk. Bret Hart wants a match, and I want to give him that match.

Hulk: Thatís not going to happen Vince...


Chris Benoit cuts Hogan off.

Chris: Hulk, Iím alright with Bret wanting his rematch tonight. He wants to wrestle me Iím going to take his challenge, but under one condition.

Hulk: Whatís that brother?

Chris: This will be Bretís last shot at my title and it will happen inside a steel cage!


Hogan waits for a moment as the fans cheer for the announcement.

Hulk: You want it brother, then itís on. Chris Benoit and Bret Hart for the WCW Heavyweight Championship inside a Steel Cage. Weíre going to take WCW to a whole new level brother.

ďVoodoo ChildĒ plays again as Hogan taunts Creative Control to come down to the ring.

-Break-

Ric Flair is shown entering the office of the new WCW President, Hollywood Hulk Hogan.

Ric: I still cannot believe that after all this time you and I would be on the same page Hulk.

Flair extends his hand and Hogan accepts.

Hulk: You and I have come a long way brother. Now itís time to put WCW on a whole new level and with Chris Benoit the World Champion, I think we can do that now brother.

Flair: What do you have in mind?

Hulk: Well Ric, if there is one thing I know itís that WCW has a new fight with Creative Control now, and when you add in the fighting between Revolution, and Sting/Savage/Luger, thereís not much right now that can control Creative Control. If we arenít careful brother, theyíre going to take over once again. I think itís time we see the return of Tradition Brother!

Flair: When you say tradition what are you referring to?


Hulk extends his right hand and shows 4 fingers. Flair smiles then leaves the office.

Inside the arena, David Penzer introduces the next contest for WCW Nitro.

Iím sick and tired of losing out to you guys. WCW is about rebranding and reenergizing this industry. Well Iím starting tonight.

Re: WCW 2000: The New Blood
 
Incredible Nitro! this is exactly what WCW was missing from 1998-2001.

I think Shane Douglas will do just fine by himself, and it will be interesting to see how the four horseman deal with his "Selfish Revolution"

Bret Hart vs Chris Benoit just gives me chills. They didn't wrestle each other a lot, but when they did, it was always incredible.

I would have liked to see something like TNA did with Four-tune. Where Ric Flair is more the manager, but in 2000 he was still one of the best, if not THE best workers on WCW's roster. The reason I say that is that Chris Benoit was perfect in the Four Horsemen, and would be a great "leader" of the group, being Heavyweight Champion, Malenko and Saturn as the Tag Team, and Buff as the secondary singles guy/enforcer type. I think the push will be great for Buff, he was always on the verge of being great, but was apparently a big whiner.

Hogan as the President is a great idea! This way he is on screen, everyday, but isn't forced down our throats in matches, and he was still young enough to defend himself when its necessary.

Hopefully something great comes out of this Lex Luger/ Randy Savage thing, because both could (and should IMO) have been included in the World Title tourney. Shouldn't Luger have demanded a spot in that? If he want's some spotlight, that would be the way to go. And why didn't Hogan do anything about Douglas's tainted victory? Does he move on regardless? (not trying to be mean, just trying to help give you some direction and ideas)

I'm green as goose-shit at this, so I'm just trying to bounce some ideas off for you. I was going to use this time period (starting with 98 Starrcade though) as my BTB but went for present day because I wasn't really sure where to start with reshaping WCW at this time. You have some really good ideas, and I will be reading.

Dean Malenko vs. Bret Hart
The two wrestlers have an excellent technical match to finish off Thunder. Hoganís on hand to watch the main event and also ensure that there is no interference from the outside. Both men come close to winning the match, but their opponent gets a second wind at the last second. Hart becomes increasingly more aggressive as he becomes more frustrated. In the end Malenko has Hart in the Texas Clover Leaf when the Hitman counters into the sharp shooter. Hart makes Malenko tap out and picks up the victory.
