WCW Monday Nitro
January 14, 2002
Live from Boston, MA


The WCW opening video plays featuring Eric Bischoff, Hollywood Hogan, Scott Steiner, Goldberg, Rey Mysterio (Masked), Road Warriors, and Diamond Dallas Page.

The pyro goes off in the Fleet Center as about 13,560 fans cheer. Tony Schiavone and Jerry the King Lawler welcome fans to another edition of Monday Nitro.

(Tony) – One week after our impressive return, welcome everyone to WCW Monday Nitro. I’m Tony Schiavone here along with Jerry “The King” Lawler and King, WCW is on the road to Superbrawl 2002 in a huge way.

(King) – We have a new World Heavyweight Champion with Big Poppa Pump Scott Steiner winning the tournament last week, but we also have a number of unanswered questions. Who where those men responsible for the assaults on Booker T, Shane Douglas, and the interference in the main event last week, and who are they working for?

(Tony) – Many people thought Hollywood Hulk Hogan was behind it. We saw the footage of them heading into Hogan’s locker room, but later on at the end of the show, Hogan came out and single handily took them out. We know now that they went into Hogan’s locker room and ransacked it before Hogan actually arrived in the arena. So who is behind the attacks?

(King) – Your guess is as good as mine, but we can be sure of one thing. Tonight we’re going to hear from both Hollywood Hulk Hogan and the new World Heavyweight Champion, Big Poppa Pump Scott Steiner.

(Tony) – Speaking of which, let’s head down to the ring.

“Thus Sprach Zarathustra” plays and the Nature Boy Ric Flair comes out. The fans in Boston give a huge WOOOOOOOO as the pyro goes off for the co-owner of WCW. Flair struts down to the ring and climbs through the ropes. The Nature Boy is handed a microphone and prepares to address the crowd.

(Ric) – WOOOOOOO The Nature Boy is back in Boston, and I hear we’re going to have a party!

Flair pauses as the fans continue cheering for him.

(Ric) – Last week, we witnessed a number of attacks from a group of masked men. When they interfered in the Main Event, Eric Bischoff came out and announced the match was going to continue under No Disqualification Rules. Now Eric, we all know how much you enjoy screwing over the wrestlers who bust their backs for this company. You’re no stranger to controversy Eric, so I’m calling you out right now.

Eric Bischoff’s music comes on and the boss heads out to the ring. Bischoff looks angry as he gets in the ring and confronts Ric Flair.

(Ric) – What are you thinking by getting WCW back involved with the NWO? I know you’re behind this Eric.

(Eric) – Not like I have to explain myself to anyone, but I’ll bite on this Ric. I am not behind any groups attacking WCW talent. I will go on record as to why I decided to let the main event continue under No Disqualification Rules and inform you that I don’t think the World Heavyweight Championship should be decided by disqualification or count out. Wrestling fans deserve to see a winner, and last week they got that with Big Poppa Pump. I maintain that I have nothing to do with assaults, but quite frankly I not opposed to them if it means controversy because as everyone knows controversy creates cash. It makes wrestling more exciting and unpredictable.

(Ric) – I will not have you play down the assaults last week. I know it’s you and I will pull my funding from WCW when I can prove you’re behind it.

(Eric) – For the last time Ric, I’m not behind it, but I can tell you what I am behind and that’s the Cruiserweight Championship being decided right here tonight in a triple threat ladder match.

(Ric) – I’m sure fans will be behind that match 100% but it doesn’t change the fact that people were screwed out of their opportunity to be the World Champion last week. What do you plan on doing about that?

(Eric) – Well Ric... I’ll tell you what I’m going to do about it. Tonight we’re going to do Beat the Clock with the winner getting Big Poppa Pump Scott Steiner at WCW Superbrawl. Now if you’d excuse me we have a show to get going so can we get things going?

(Ric) – I’ll be watching your every move Eric, and the first slip up from you is the last time you will be the Boss around here. WOOOOOO

Flair’s music hits and the Nature Boy leaves the ring again as Tony and The King hype tonight’s Beat the Clock and WCW’s Cruiserweight Ladder Match.

Commercial Break

Video:
The road to Superbrawl is on with the greatest in the world squaring off. Some seek vengeance while others seek redemption. New Champions will be crowned and WCW will never be the same again. Join us for all the action, Sunday, February 3rd, 2002 live from Toronto, Canada and only on Pay-Per-View.

Mean Gene Oakerlund stands in the middle of the ring in Boston.

(Gene) – Ladies and Gentlemen, please help me in welcoming the most recognizable wrestler in the world today. 12 Time Heavyweight Champion of the world.... Hollywood Hulk Hogan.

“Voodoo Child” plays and Hollywood Hogan emerges through the red/yellow smoke wearing a brand new Red and Yellow Hollywood Hogan Shirt complete with a Red Hulkamania bandana, black jeans and red/yellow boots. Hogan comes down to the ring as the fans in Boston get to their feet.

(Gene) – What an entrance Hulk!

(Hulk) – What’s up all my Hollywood Hulkamaniacs! Hogan’s returned to WCW brother and this time business is going to really pick up.

Fans in Boston start cheering “Welcome back” as Hogan pauses. Hollywood waits for crowd to die down before Mean Gene continues the interview.

(Gene) – You’ve been out of action for a while now Hulk, actually ever since July 2000 when you left WCW. Many people believed last week that you were behind the attackers, but you came out and showed them wrong.

(Hulk) – The new WCW is all about reinventing ourselves and finding redemption for our actions Mean Gene, and that’s why Hollywood is back. You see when I walked away from WCW, both the company and I were in pretty rough shape. However, now we’re both healthier and looking being back on top. When I left WCW I did leave as the World Heavyweight Champion, but now with Scott Steiner as the champion I’m cool with that brother. I do have a warning that Big Poppa Pump better watch out. Hollywood Hogan is coming for my world title again brother, but for now this company’s in good hands.

Hogan is stopped when Big Poppa Pump comes out to the ring. The World Heavyweight Champion receives a great reaction from the crowd as he climbs through the ropes and shakes Hogan’s hand.

(Gene) – What brings the World Champion out here?

(Scott) – The Big Bad Booty Daddy decided it’s about damn time I come out here and talk to Hollywood and the world. As far as you getting a match against me Hulk, anytime, anyplace, anywhere. I’m down with that because beating you will prove to the world that I am unquestionably the best World Heavyweight Champion in this industry, so you’ve got it.

Fans cheer for Steiner’s acceptance and start chanting “Hogan Steiner”

(Scott) – But you and I both know that as of last week there’s some unfinished business going down right now. We have a group of thugs who think it’s cool to come down to the ring and kick asses. Well both Hogan and I have been there, done that, and got the T-shirts to prove it so instead of hiding out I’m calling people out to get their asses kicked.

(Hulk) – Hold on brother, that’s also why I’m out here Scotty. The way I see it, these guys have Big Sexy’s back jack and since Nash wanted a war before, I think it’s time he gets a war. So Big Sexy, since you think you’re hot stuff why don’t you get your ass out to the ring and fight me brother!

(Gene) – What a challenge Hulk?

“Wolfpac” plays and Big Sexy comes out with a baseball bat. Joining him are Lex Luger and Jeff Jarrett. Nash has a microphone in hand as he stops at the entrance.

(Nash) – Well, well, well; if it isn’t the dream team of Hogan and Steiner. Two egotistical asses whose pythons are bigger than their brains; do you really think I would step into the ring with you Hulk? I have bigger plans for myself and it involves the World Heavyweight Championship. You see I’m going to win my Beat the Clock match tonight and go to Superbrawl to face Scott Steiner.

(Hulk) – I don’t think so Nash. I met with Eric Bischoff before coming out here tonight. You’re not included in tonight’s Beat the Clock which means you’re easy pickings Brother!

(Nash) – I will never, ever wrestle you Hulk. That will never happen.

(Hulk) – I know for a fact that it will brother, and the way I see it dude you either wrestle me tonight, or Eric Bischoff signs us to Superbrawl Nash.

(Nash) – Hogan, as far as I’m concerned you can go to hell because that will never happen. Have a great day!

Nash’s music plays and he heads to the back with Jarrett, and Luger as Hogan and Steiner look very angry inside the ring.

Default Re: WCW 2002: The Return

WRESTLING NEWS:

On the WWF front, officials have confirmed that Edge, Christian, Chris Jericho, Kurt Angle, Matt Hardy, Jeff Hardy, and Test have all had their contracts come up without renewal. WCW has indeed spoke with at least one superstar from the list about coming over, but nobody can confirm if anyone has signed a new deal with WWF yet.

As Wrestlemania X8 comes closer, the feeling backstage is that WWF may sign Chris Benoit and Triple H as the main event for the WWF Championship. Chris Benoit defending the championship in his home country may help sell the pay-per-view for WWF.

WCW is looking at capitalizing on the Toronto crowd before WWF gets there with Superbrawl happening 1 month prior. The idea is that WCW is offering a more affordable super show with a stacked card as compared to WWF's Wrestlemania. Backstage officials are working hard to make WCW Superbrawl a Wrestlemania feel show with a stacked pay-per-view card and celebrity appearances.

As of right now, the Air Canada Centre in Toronto is 75% sold out for the show. WCW will be incorporating a fan festival into their Superbrawl Weekend where wrestlers can meet with fans and more activities can happen to promote the show.

WCW MONDAY NITRO PREVIEW

BASIC THUGANOMICS?
Who is behind the attacks over the last two weeks on Nitro? To put matters plainly, Ric Flair has placed the blame solely on one man; Eric Bischoff. Last week on Nitro Bischoff came down to put an end to the attacks, and an end came when the group of thugs walked right past the Owner of WCW and didn't touch a single hair on his head. Is Eric Bischoff responsible for the attacks on his WCW stars over the last two weeks? Who will be the targets of this weeks attack? When will the thugs give up their viscous streak in WCW?

THE ROAD TO SUPERBRAWL CEMENTED
The fate of the World Heavyweight Championship is in the balance as Big Poppa Pump and The War Machine Rhino continue their journey to Superbrawl. Both men on their own path of reckless abandonment as they look to unleash hell on anyone who gets in their way. For Scott Steiner, the World Heavyweight Champion has been preoccupied with the Thugs and with Kevin Nash, Lex Luger, and Jeff Jarrett over the last week. Can he turn his attention onto Rhino or will he become another victim to the GORE!

HULKAMANIA STILL RUNNIN' WILD
Hollywood Hogan has a few scores to settle, first with Big Sexy Kevin Nash at Superbrawl, but also with the man called Sting. Last week's Nitro found Hogan getting blindsided in an assault from the group of thugs backstage while Sting watched on from the catwalk. Will Hogan confront Sting this week? Is Sting working on the side of evil or is deception running wild in WCW?

WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS
Since the return of WCW, the World Heavyweight Championship and the Cruiserweight Championships have been crowned. This week the focus will be on the World Tag Team Championship titles when Eric Bischoff makes a very special announcements to kick off Nitro live from Green Bay. Will someone be walking out of Green Bay the New WCW World Tag Team Champions?

WCW Monday Nitro
January 21, 2002
Green Bay, Wisconsin


Video:
Footage from the attacks over the last two weeks on Nitro airs. The video package shows the men in ski masks working with Kevin Nash at the end of the first Nitro, and walking past Eric Bischoff, implying that they work for/with both Nash and Bischoff.

Backstage:
Eric Bischoff arrives to the arena prior to the show. He is stopped dead in his tracks by the men in ski masks. Bischoff notices that there are now five of them, and they hand him a note. The five men walk away and Bischoff continues into the building.

WCW’s Nitro video package plays and the pyro display goes off in the Brown County Veteran Memorial Arena in Green Bay and 4,900 fans pack the arena for the show. Tony Schiavone and Jerry the King Lawler welcome fans to WCW Monday Nitro.

Eric Bischoff’s music plays and the owner of WCW walks down to the ring with the letter still in his hand from the gang. Bischoff gets in the ring and is handed a microphone.

(Eric) Before Nitro goes any further tonight, I wanted to share this note that was just handed to me by the gang upon my arrival here tonight.

Bischoff opens the letter, puts his glasses on and continues.

(Eric) it reads “WCW fans, we’re not who you think we are, and deception will only get you so far. We’re not taking over, and we have no intentions of being the NWO. We are the next generation of superstars making our mark. We are the highlights of the night, the instant classics of professional wrestling. We are wrestling to the extreme and we will take out everyone in our path. We’re on a mission to take WCW and professional wrestling to greater heights and we will stop at nothing until we get there. Everyone in the locker room, everyone in head office, and fans around the world are put on notice. We will resort of anything to get what we want and nobody will stop us. We are the X-Factor.”

Bischoff takes his glasses off, puts the letter back in his pocket and addresses the crowd.

(Eric) You make think you’re the X-Factor, but the reality is that you’re all a bunch of cowards trying to wreak havoc in my company. If you want to make a statement then don’t hide behind your masks; come out here and face me and WCW nose to nose.

“Thus Sprach Zarathustra” plays and the Nature Boy comes out to the ring again. Flair, dressed in his finest suit gets in the ring and addresses Eric Bischoff.

(Ric) Do you really expect all of us to believe that you aren’t the person behind these attacks? Last week they walk right past you, not evening bothering to lift a finger to harm you. This week they conveniently chose you to hand a letter to, once again without hurting a hair on your head. You make me sick Bischoff.

(Eric) Ric, you and I have never seen eye to eye before and this is no different. There is nothing I can do to make you realize that I have nothing to do with this, but I know that these guys are dangerous and I don’t trust them one bit.

(Ric) And I don’t trust you Eric, so this is what’s going to happen. You have until the end of the night to get them in the ring with me so I can talk to them man to man otherwise, all the investors backing you right now will pull out and that will mean goodbye Eric Bischoff.

(Eric) Why don’t you go talk to Nash, I’m sure he knows more about this than I do.

(Ric) I’m talking to you, you cheap SOB! The end of the night Eric!

Flair leaves the ring as Eric Bischoff is an emotional wreck kicking off Nitro.

Tony and the King hype tonight’s Nitro with the start of the Lethal Lottery to determine the new World Tag Team Champions. 4 experienced tag teams will square off against 4 comprised teams in an elimination tournament with the finals taking place at WCW Superbrawl.

Backstage:
Jeremy Borash interviews AJ Styles.

(JB) Standing beside me at this time is a young man from Gainsville Georgia. He plans on making a mark in WCW and plans on doing it through the Cruiserweight Division. I’m talking about the Phenomenal AJ Styles.

(AJ) Thanks JB.

(JB) You haven’t been with WCW for very long, but you already have your eyes set on gold as you look towards getting a Cruiserweight Championship from the Fallen Angel Christopher Daniels.

(AJ) I’ve been watching Daniels compete for the last while, and he’s a great wrestler and will no doubt make a great champion, but there is one thing he isn’t and that’s phenomenal JB.

(JB) The Cruiserweight Division is filled with a lot of great talent AJ, what makes you think you have what it takes to be the next champion.

Just as AJ’s about to speak they are interrupted by Christopher Daniels. Daniels comes with the championship around his waist and an appletini in his hand.

(Daniels) He may think that he has what it takes to be champion, but the reality is that there can only be one champion and right now that is the Fallen Angel. I am the most dominant Cruiserweight Champion in the history of the world. I am the only undefeated champion and the man who has revolutionized WCW.

(AJ) I will make it quite clear Chris; I will do whatever it takes to be the Cruiserweight Champion.

(Daniels) Well then have an appletini on me...

Daniels cracks the martini glass across the head of AJ Styles then throws him into the wall. AJ falls the ground and Daniels crouches down over him.

(Daniels) Or should I say on you...Man what a waste of a good drink.

Daniels kicks AJ in the mid section then leaves the set.

Backstage:
JB Jeremy Borash interviews Big Sexy Kevin Nash.

(JB) I’m joined tonight by Kevin Nash. There is a lot of people questioning what involvement you might have with this group of thugs known simply as the X-Factor?

(Nash) That definitely is the question of the day. I’ve heard the accusations from Hulk, Bischoff, and others around WCW, but think about this. Who were the people most influential in the forming of the NWO? Hollywood wants everything to think that he’s reformed his ways, but the truth is that he’s just as devious now as what he was in the NWO, and as far as Easy-E is concerned... well, Eric is all about controversy so why wouldn’t he try to recreate the greatest group in professional wrestling?

(JB) So you’re not involved?

(Nash) I’m not going to deny that they gave me an advantage in the World Title Match and I would have won if it wasn’t for Scott Steiner cheating me at the last minute, and I may have even gone out for a beer with the guys afterwards, but I’m going to leave the questions up to you and all the fans. Think whatever you want JB, the truth will come out soon enough.

(JB) And how are you prepping for your upcoming match against Hollywood Hogan at Superbrawl?

(Nash) I’m relaxing and taking it easy JB. By the end of Superbrawl the name Hollywood Hulk Hogan will cease to exist and Hogan will be nothing more than a myth.

(JB) Well thank you for your time Kevin Nash. Next week folks, I’m going to have an exclusive interview with Bill Goldberg, but for now lets go back to you Tony and Jerry “The King” Lawler.

In the arena, King and Schiavone comment on Nash’s interview then head things back to David Penzer for the final WCW Lethal Lottery Tournament Match.

Default Re: WCW 2002: The Return

Dude, I am loving this one. It's a combination of the timing, roster and your writing that are making this captivating for me. I only wish you had more complete as I am bummed that I have to stop reading now, and with so much work time left. My question to you is..... were you quoting Chris ericho and Christian as a bit of foreshadowing? I would love to see them involved, and debuting as masked heels would be an interesting twist. I'm also thinking Morrisson might be involved in this, but hey if it's all a swerve, consider me a brand new mark for your BTB writing. It's inspired me to write my own as well and for no particular reason I think I shall focus on the big boss man... go figure. Anyway, keep it up brother.

WRESTLING NEWS
WCW Nitro has been building in the ratings slightly each week since their debut. With 3.2 Million viewers tuning in for their debut on HBO; WCW has watched it's number's climb to 3.6 Million last week. This past Monday however, there was a slight decrease in number as WCW only averaged 3.1 Million viewers for Nitro. WCW and HBO aren't concerned with the decreased number since Nitro was competing against the Fallout from Sunday's Royal Rumble. The main event for Nitro and the over run drew the most fans with 3.4 fans tuning in to see what happened at the end of the show. Numbers are expected to increase dramatically as Nitro enters its last show before SuperBrawl. Although WWF beat Nitro in the ratings, they only averaged 3.5 Million viewers, so the margin in slim between the two shows.

From the WWF front, it is quite clear that they are working towards having Triple H and Chris Benoit headline Wrestlemania; however controversial ending with Kurt Angle returning may lead to a Triple Threat Match for the Undisputed ECWWF championship at Wrestlemania. The other big draw match being talked about for Wrestlemania is Stone Cold Steve Austin and the Undertaker.

Many WWF fans expected to see the return of Matt Hardy, Jeff Hardy, Christian, Edge, and Chris Jericho at the Royal Rumble. Word is out that at least two of them are finished with WWF for the time being and their contracts will not be renewed. Fans speculate on whether any or all of them will show up in WCW, but that remains to be seen.

WCW reports that Superbrawl is completely sold out. The Air Canada Centre will host the event with 18,350 fans in attendance. Superbrawl's ticket sales have not hurt Wrestlemania's Tickets sales, but there is definitely a hype between both companies to put on a first class show. The last time WCW held a pay-per-view in Toronto was Mayhem 1999. They only managed to sell 13,00 tickets.

The rumour flying around backstage in WCW is that at least one member of the X-Factor team will be revealed in Toronto at Superbrawl. Details are still being discussed as to how they will work it in.

WCW MONDAY NITRO PREVIEW

All Roads Lead Home
The last stretch before WCW Superbrawl hits Detroit Michigan this Monday, and what a roller coaster it has been. Since the very first night of WCW Nitro's debut on HBO, the action hasn't stopped. What is in store for the last edition of Nitro before Superbrawl?

X-Factor X-Treme
For weeks this group of masked assailants have stormed through WCW, kicking ass and taking names as they go. Everyone from Hollywood Hogan to World Heavyweight Champion Scott Steiner, and even the chief financial backer of WCW, Ric Flair has been a target of the assaults. One man seems to be connected with the violence, but WCW Owner Eric Bischoff denies his involvement with the group. Who will be the target this week on Nitro? Will Eric Bischoff finally tell the truth or will Ric Flair be forced to pull his funds from the WCW bank?

Lethal Lottery Continues
The World Tag Team Championships have been put up for grabs in a Lethal Lottery Tournament over the last two weeks. Four established tag teams in WCW have taken on Four make shift tag teams decided through the Lethal Lottery. This week, the Lottery continues with two semi-final matches taking place. Who will come out on top and head into Superbrawl for their shot at tag team glory?

Pick Your Poison
The World Heavyweight Champion, Scott Steiner and the War Machine Rhino look at softening each other up before their match Sunday at Superbrawl. In WCW's first Pick Your Poison night, both men will have the opportunity to the other in a match against a wrestler of their choosing.

Goldberg Returns
Before heading into Toronto for his first match against Randy Macho Man Savage, Bill Goldberg sits down in his home in Atlanta for an interview with Jeremy Borash. What are Goldberg's thoughts on Sunday's match.

WCW Monday Nitro
January 28, 2002
Live from Detroit, MI


The Nature Boy Ric Flair is shown standing in the middle of the ring when Nitro kicks off live from the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit. 15,000 fans are quiet as the major investor in WCW is about to speak.

(Ric) As of right now I’m pulling all my money from WCW unless Eric Bischoff resigns as the Chairman and CEO of this company. I have had enough of his crap over the last several weeks and as far as I am concerned he is the man behind the X Factor.

Eric Bischoff’s music plays and the boss comes down to the ring. Eric Bischoff is visibly upset with Ric Flair as he prepares to address the situation.

(Eric) Listen Ric, I have told you week after week that I have nothing to do with these guys. I don’t know who’s responsible for bringing them in, but I can assure you that it is not me. I’m trying to take WCW to a new level and focus on a brand new product free of violent groups like the X Factor. I’ve talked to the other investors and I have promised them that we will beef up security in this company to ensure that these thugs won’t interfere with WCW anymore.

(Ric) You’ve had your chance with me Eric, and too many times I’ve allowed you to get the better of me. You reassured the investors that this was going to be different, but it’s not. I cannot back a product that is sinking like WCW is.

(Eric) Whether you like to admit it or not Ric, WCW is not a sinking ship. The company has risen out of the ashes over the last several weeks. We’re starting to make a little bit of money, and have gained back a large fanbase. WCW is doing just as well as it was back in 99, when I was last in charge. WCW is turning around and it’s because of the leadership and the fresh direction Ric.

(Ric) I don’t care what you say Eric, you’re out or I’m out. Take your pick.

(Eric) That’s it Ric. I’ve tried to be reasonable with you, but you just don’t want to give me the benefit of the doubt. So why don’t you put your money where your mouth is. This Sunday, Superbrawl... Eric Bischoff verses The Nature Boy Ric Flair. You win, I will walk away from the day-to-day operations, but if I win then you sit back, write me the cheques, and just watch as WCW gets back on top.

(Ric) You think for one minute I’m going to agree to that. I know what you’re plan is. You’ll have those punks come down and help you win.

(Eric) I will guarantee you that the X Factor will not play a role in our match at Superbrawl. If they do I will personally step down from my duties.

(Ric) Then you’ve got a deal. I’ve been looking forward to kicking your ass for so long.


The two of them shake hands and their match is made for Superbrawl. Flair is about to cheap shot Eric when he is jumped by 5 men with ski masks on. The 5 of them beat down the Nature Boy as Eric Bischoff watches on. Bischoff calls out security to handle the 5 men, but by the time security gets down to the ring the damage has been down and the Nature Boy is busted wide open.

(Tony) I can’t believe what just went down with that assault. It took Eric a while before he called down security. Do you think he could be working with the X Factor?

(King) If my opponent at Superbrawl was getting attacked like that I would have waited to call security.

(Tony) What an exciting night we have for fans as WCW makes the final run for Superbrawl this Sunday on Pay-Per-View. The Lethal Lottery Semi-Finals will take place right here tonight.

(King) Don’t forget that Hollywood Hogan, Booker T, and Sting will square off against Kevin Nash, Lex Luger, and Jeff Jarrett, plus Booker T will decide who his opponent at WCW Superbrawl will be.

(Tony) We have an exclusive interview with Bill Goldberg as he prepares for his match against the Macho Man this Sunday.

(King) And both Scott Steiner and Rhino will pick each other’s opponents tonight in a Pick Your Poison contest. This is definitely a can’t miss Nitro.

Backstage:
Mean Gene is standing with Randy Savage.

(Gene) I can’t believe the footage we just saw of you from earlier in the week. What are you thinking by attacking Goldberg like that?

(Savage) Ah-Ha, Mean Gene, you think I’m a loose cannon as well. The bottom line is that the Macho Man is back in WCW and its take no prisoner’s time, yeah. You see Mean Gene, Bill Goldberg has always wanted to get in the ring with the Macho Man, now he has a reason to dude. Now, there’s a purpose for me to beat that punk in Toronto this Sunday. Now there’s a reason for the Macho Man to get back in the ring and prove to the world that I’m still as twisted as I ever was.

(Gene) Couldn’t you have waited until Sunday at Superbrawl?

(Savage) It’s all about mind games Mean Gene, and I’m playing the ultimate mind game with Goldberg. I’ve just pissed him off now which means Goldberg’s head is out of the game. He’s going to be thinking about getting revenge, not winning matches, and to somebody like Goldberg; it’s all about winning matches. I’m going to tear him a new one Mean Gene and when Superbrawl is all said and done the Macho Man will be walking out on top. OOOOOOOH YEAH!!! DIG-IT!


Savage leaves Mean Gene backstage.

(Distorted Voice) We just want you to know that with your match on Sunday against Ric Flair...We’ve got your back boss!

(Eric) I’m not your boss. I don’t even know who you guys are?

(Distorted Voice) All you need to know is that we’re on your side, and when it’s all said and done you will have total control over WCW. We’re here for you.

(Eric) You’re right about one thing; I will have complete control of WCW following Superbrawl, but not because of any of you. I will win my match with no outside interference. You see boys, I have back-up to make sure I don’t get cheated out of the company, but it’s not you. With my match against Ric Flair I’ve enlisted the services of a very special guest enforcer.

(Distorted Voice) Why do you need an enforcer?

Default Re: WCW 2002: The Return

it's been a while, but here it goes...

WRESTLING NEWS
WCW Superbrawl is only days away, but everyone is talking about what the aftermath of WCW's second biggest pay-per-view will bring. Fans in Toronto are hyped to see all the live action that includes the huge Steel Cage Contest between Hollywood Hulk Hogan and Kevin Nash, the World Heavyweight Championship Match between Rhyno and Scott Steiner as well as the battle for control of WCW between Eric Bischoff and Ric Flair. The question on everybody's minds is what role will the X Factor play in Sunday's Pay-Per-View?

WWF will be having a lot to compete with when they roll into town next month for Wrestlemania. Although the company has confirmed Chris Benoit vs. Triple H vs. Kurt Angle for the WWF Undisputed Championship and Stone Cold vs. The Undertaker; many feel that their undercard will be lackluster to this month's Superbrawl Card. It was definitely in WCW's best interest to bring Superbrawl to Toronto before WWF rolled in.

WCW can confirm that a major player in the X Factor will be revealed at Superbrawl and it will have shocking consequences for fans of both WCW and WWF.

Goldberg, Booker T, Ric Flair
(Voice) Tonight championships are on the line and new battle lines are drawn; only the best can walk out with all the glory, all the power, all the control.
Scott Steiner/Rhino, Daniels/Styles, Flair/Bischoff
(Voice) Tonight, the war wages on as WCW Presents Superbrawl.
The official theme for Superbrawl is “Happenstance” by Fozzy which plays as footage from WCW Nitro’s over the last few weeks continue to air.


The pyro goes off in the Air Canada Centre and Tony and Jerry Lawler are sitting at ringside.

(Tony) Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to the number 1 wrestling franchise in the world, this is WCW and we welcome you to SUPERBRAWL. Tony Schiavone here are ringside, joining me is none other than the legendary Jerry Lawler.

(King) I can’t say enough how great it is to be the king, and tonight is no exception. WCW has been hot for the last several weeks as we’ve prepared for Superbrawl. Tonight will be an explosive pay-per-view.

(Tony) Let’s kick things off with Canadian Singer/Songwriter Ann Murray here to perform the national anthems.


Ann Murray sings the Star Spangled Banner and then O Canada as fans in Toronto sing along with her. After she’s finished she leaves the ring and the bell rings three times. David Penzer welcomes fans to Superbrawl and announces the opening contest.

“Self High-Five” plays and Diamond Dallas Page comes down to the ring with Kimberly Page.

Raven is introduced as he comes down to the ring for the first contest of Superbrawl.

Match One:
Diamond Dallas Page (w. Kimberly Page) vs. Raven
DDP and Raven lock up in the middle of the ring with a traditional collar/elbow tie up. Raven is backed into the corner and Slick Johnson orders Page to release the hold. Page lets go and they lock up again. This time Raven is the one with the advantage as he backs DDP into the ropes. Raven releases and nails Page with a chop across the chest. Raven follows up with an Irish whip into the ropes and slams into Page with a shoulder block. DDP goes down to the canvas and Raven waits for him to get onto a knee before kicking him hard in the mid section. The referee warns Raven as he backs off of DDP. Kimberly urges DDP to get back to his feet and Raven helps by pulling him up and ramming him head first into the turnbuckle pad repeatedly. Raven clotheslines Page to the outside of the ring. Raven follows his opponent to the outside of the ring and slams his head into the ring apron. Page attempts to battle back with a rake to the eyes of Raven and prepares to whip him into the ring post, but Raven counters and sends DDP head first into the ring post. Raven rolls into the ring to break the count then goes right back out to continue the assault on DDP. Kimberly attempts to get involved, but Raven pushes her out of the way and slams Page to the arena floor. He sits on Page and pounds him repeatedly with right hands then rolls him under the ropes. Raven pins Diamond Dallas in the ring for a 1...2...kickout. The match is forced to continue, but Raven continues to dominate Diamond Dallas Page. Diamond Dallas finally makes a bit of a comeback after Raven sends him into the ropes. Page ducks a clothesline and follows through with a DDT, but unfortunately Page can not follow up with a pin. Both men struggle to their feet and begin exchanging blows back and forth. Page gets the upper hand with a couple of upper cuts and follows up with a few kicks to the mid section. He clotheslines Raven to the canvas and poses for the fans in Toronto. DDP is about to go for the Diamond Cutter when Raven throws him into the ropes and rolls out of the ring. Kimberly gets in Raven’s face when she is grabbed from behind by Shane Douglas. DDP goes outside to save Kimberly, but is nailed by Raven. Raven hoists DDP onto his shoulder and rams his head into the ring post. Raven hits the Evenflow DDT on the outside then rolls Page into the ring. He follows up with another pinfall attempt and finally gets the 1...2...3.
Result: RAVEN wins via pinfall (8:36)

Following the match, Raven and Shane Douglas continue to attack Diamond Dallas Page. They double team him as Kimberly is handcuffed to the ropes. Raven goes outside the ring and grabs a metal garbage can. He cracks it against the skull of Diamond Dallas Page repeatedly until Page is busted wide open. Raven then follows up with another even flow to the canvas. Shane Douglas gets on Page and beats him senseless with rights across the side of his head. Raven and Douglas both use kendo sticks to beat down a helpless DDP. After several more moments of beating senseless Diamond Dallas Page, help finally comes in the form of Ron Killings. The Truth hits a spine buster on Douglas and follows up with a spinning heel kick on Raven. He drops Raven with a bulldog and both Raven and Shane Douglas leave the ring.

Mean Gene Interviews the Phenomenal AJ Styles

(Gene) Ladies and Gentleman, I’m standing a long side a young man who in just a few short moments could be walking out of Toronto as the New WCW Cruiserweight Champion. I’m talking about AJ Styles. Tonight is you’re opportunity to prove to the world why you are considered the Phenomenal One AJ.

(AJ) That’s right Mean Gene. I’ve been in WCW for a relatively short time, but I intend on being the biggest name to ever come out of this company and in order to do that I need to first beat Christopher Daniels and walk out the new Cruiserweight Champion. You know, when I was younger, one of the most influential wrestlers I watched was Ric Flair, and you know Gene just like I do that he had a little saying “To Be the Man You’ve Got to Beat the Man” well tonight I’m on my way to being the Man here in WCW, and nobody’s going to stop me.

(Gene) Well good luck to you AJ Styles. Let’s head back to the ring for our next contest.

David Penzer stands in the ring to make the announcements for the next WCW Superbrawl contest.

WCW Cruiserweight Championship
Fallen Angel Christopher Daniels (c) vs. Phenomenal AJ Styles
The Phenomenal One comes out to the huge reaction from the fans and poses at the entrance way before starting to walk down to the ring, but his entrance is cut short as the Fallen Angel attacks him from behind in the aisle way. Daniels nails Styles with the Cruiserweight Championship then continues to beat the challenger down the aisle and into the ring. Charles Robinson finally calls for the match to start when Daniels gets in and starts choking AJ in the middle of the ring. Robinson is about to disqualify the champion when he finally releases the choke and backtalks some of the fans in the front row. Daniels drives an elbow across the chest of AJ and covers him in the middle of the ring for a two count. AJ kicks out and Daniels puts him back on the canvas and drops a knee into his chest. Daniels covers him again and AJ kicks out a second time. This time the champion sits AJ up and kicks him in the back of the head then follows up with a sleeper hold. Fans in Toronto start chanting “Let’s Go AJ” and the Phenomenal One fights to his feet. He elbows Daniels in the mid section three times before Daniels releases the hold. AJ then propels off the ropes and ducks under a clothesline attempt from Daniels. AJ follows through with a Pelee kick and Daniels lands on the ground. AJ pulls Daniels up and nails him with repeated knife edged chops until Daniels is backed into the corner. The Phenomenal One hoists Daniels on the top rope and follows through with a Hurricanrana off the top rope. Daniels rolls to the outside of the ring to recoup, but AJ spring boards off the ropes with a 450 on Daniels. Fans are really behind AJ as he and Daniels fight on the outside of the ring. AJ whips Daniels into the guard rail then jumps off the steps with a flying forearm right on Daniels. They get back in the ring and AJ scoops slams Daniels to the canvas. AJ hits a moonsault off of the ropes and lands on the champion. AJ covers Daniels for a 1...2...kickout. The match continues on with the challenger in complete control over the champion.

AJ climbs the top rope, but is quickly meet by the champion who slams him with a vertical superplex off the top rope. Both men lay in the middle of the ring trying to recoup as the referee starts the 10 count. Daniels is the first to get up to a knee by 6, but AJ follows and they exchange rights back and forth on one knee before getting to a vertical base. Daniels nails AJ with an uppercut, but AJ comes right back with a knife edged chop. Daniels grabs AJ and sends him shoulder first into the ring post. Daniels pulls AJ away from the corner and whips him a second time into the ring post shoulder first, then slams him to the canvas. Daniels puts a hammer lock on AJ’s arm and applies pressure. AJ refuses to tap as Charles Robinson continually checks the hold and the challenger’s condition. AJ fights to his feet and then reverses the hammerlock. Daniels gets out of AJ’s hammerlock and pokes the Phenomenal One in the eye. Daniels then throws AJ over the top rope and onto the floor. Charles Robinson warns Daniels that he could be disqualified, but Daniels pushes Robinson aside and charges over the top rope with a suicide dive right on AJ Styles. The fans in Toronto marvel at the action taking place between these two as Daniels rolls AJ back into the ring. Daniels hits the Angel Wings on AJ and covers him, but AJ kicks out before 3. Daniels pulls AJ back up and drop kicks him to the canvas. The Fallen Angel covers him again, but AJ kicks out again before 3. Upset, Daniels whips AJ into the ropes and nails him with an Enzuigiri kick. AJ falls to the canvas and Daniels climbs to the top rope and dives off with the Best Moonsault Ever. Daniels covers AJ for a fifth time in the match, and AJ kicks out once again. Daniels argues with the referee before climbing out of the ring. Daniels grabs his championship and starts walking up the aisle. AJ slowly gets to his feet and follows Daniels to the outside of the ring. AJ jumps Daniels from behind this time, and the two of them continue to fight in the entrance way. AJ whips Daniels into the guard rail and follows through with a Pelee Kick on the champion. AJ pulls the champion up to his feet and starts bringing him back towards the ring when the bell sounds.
Result: DRAW via double count out (18:09)


AJ can’t believe what just happened and brings the champion in the ring. AJ argues with the referee long enough for Daniels to get back to his feet. The champion blindsides the challenger with a back cracker and gets up immediately. Daniels goes to the outside and grabs a steel chair to bring in the ring. The Fallen Angel uses the chair to bust the wrist of AJ Styles. Daniels leaves the ring in celebration as AJ is being looked at by the referee for his injured hand.

(Bobby) Well Borash, it’s quite clear that you have no idea what you’re talking about and who you’re talking to. My name is Bobby Heenan and I’ve been managing champions since before you could walk junior. Buff and Henning have been on the same page since the first time they stepped in the ring together as a team, and now we’re going to win the tag titles right here at Superbrawl.

(JB) This team has worked out well over the past two weeks, but in just a few moments you must face another team that has been jiving well since the tournament, I’m talking about the team of Rob Van Dam and Rey Mysterio.

(Curt) They may be good Borash, but there is one thing they are not and that’s perfect. This team has the perfection of myself combined with the power of Buff Bagwell. Together we’re Pefectly Buff.

(Buff) And together we’re going to take out RVD and Mysterio tonight and walk out with the Tag Team Championships around our waists.

(Bobby) Let’s go boys.

Mean Gene interviews The Nature Boy Ric Flair.

(Gene) It is my privilege to introduce at this time the 14 time World Heavyweight Champion, and WCW’s Chief Financial Backer, the Nature Boy Ric Flair.

(Ric) WOOOOOO Mean Gene Oakerlund, the Nature Boy is back and live here at Superbrawl.

(Gene) For weeks you’ve been going after the Owner of WCW, Eric Bischoff over allegations that he might have something to do with this group called the X-Factor. You believe he may be up to his tricks again and want to put an end to it, leading to this match right here tonight.

(Ric) I know who’s responsible for the X-Factor Gene and tonight the world’s going to find out. I’m going to beat the living hell out of Eric Bischoff and after I beat him tonight, Eric Bischoff will be removed from this company. I have the money to back WCW, and he has to answer to me for his actions.

(Gene) Well you’ve certainly had your share of altercations over the last several weeks.

(Ric) I’ve been beat down, I’ve been bloodied, but the Nature Boy still keeps coming back, and do you know why? Because the Nature Boy is the Man; I’m a wrestling God, and the man who’s going to expose the tyranny in WCW for what it is tonight after I expose WCW of Eric Bischoff. WOOOOOO!
