Default WCW 2002: The Return

March 26, 2001 is the night that change professional wrestling. World Championship Wrestling aired for the last time on TNT. Reality proves that WWF and Vince McMahon purchased the company from AOL Time Warner. This BTB however takes WCW and puts it in the hands of WCW's president Eric Bischoff, who was set up to purchase the company prior to the sale to WWF.



In a press conference held in April 2001, Eric Bischoff announced that WCW will be taking a hiatus from television as they look towards a new programming deal. In the meantime, the company will be focusing on doing live events and growing markets in key area including specific states, Ontario, Quebec, Alberta, and Europe.

WCW achieved new success in their live tours and managed to put on a number of new shows with a very limited roster. The company ended up gaining momentum with television and marketing and by November 2001, Eric Bischoff announced that WCW will be returning with Monday Nitro on January 7, 2002. A partnership between WCW,HBO in the States, and TSN in Canada was made to air Nitro live across North America. The company also found partners with cable companies in the UK, Germany, Mexico, and Australia.

Looks great, I'll be reading for sure as I'm a big WCW fan. No Scott Steiner? He was their biggest heel in the dieing days. Him vs Goldberg for the title was what I think they were booking towards. Great to see the Road Warriors on your roster though great stuff!

Live from Baltimore, Maryland


Video:
Black Screen with 1-7-02 is shown
(Voice over) Tonight, professional wrestling history will be made. The greatest athletes in the world return to wage war on each other.
The world title is shown
(Voice over) The quest for the richest prize in the company is on.
Scott Steiner, Buff Bagwell, Booker T, Sting, Lex Luger, Kevin Nash, Jeff Jarrett, and Shane Douglas are shown.
(Voice over) But one man will walk out the new Heavyweight Champion of the World tonight when WCW makes its explosive return.


The WCW Nitro Theme plays and the pyro goes off in Baltimore as about 9,500 fans cheer in the Baltimore Arena.

(Tony) Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to the return of WCW Monday Nitro live in Baltimore Maryland. For the first time ever WCW Monday Nitro is being aired on HBO. Weíd like to thank TSN in Canada for once again coming on board as our Canadian broadcast partner. Iím Tony Schiavone here along with my colleague the legendary Jerry ďThe KingĒ Lawler.

ďGreat Gate KievĒ plays and Jerry Lawler comes out through the original WCW Monday Nitro set. Lawler is received by a huge reaction from the crowd as he pauses before heading to the side of the entrance where the Broadcast Booth is located. Lawler puts his headset on and starts talking to everyone.

(King) Itís great to be the King and to be here in World Championship Wrestling. Itís even greater for you Tony Schiavone because now you get to work with royalty.

(Tony) This is already shaping up to being an excellent night for World Championship Wrestling. Weíre going to hear from the Owner of WCW, Eric Bischoff soon, but letís kick off the show with our opening contest.

David Penzer is standing in the middle of the ring as he introduces the opening contest for WCW Monday Nitro.

WCW World Heavyweight Championship Tournament
Big Poppa Pump Scott Steiner vs. Total Package Lex Luger w. Miss Elizabeth

Two of the most physically jacked specimens in World Championship Wrestling square off in the opening contest for Nitro. Luger jumps Steiner before the match officially starts clotheslines him to the ground. Luger pulls Steiner up and whips him into the ring steps. The fans in Baltimore start giving Luger a tonne of heat as he continues to assault Steiner. Luger rolls him into the ring and starts pounding on the back of the Genetic Freak. Steiner attempts to get back to his feat, but Luger keeps him on the ground. Luger drops several elbows across the lower back of Steiner. Referee Charles Robinson attempts to pull Luger off of Steiner. Luger pushes Robinson aside and continues to attack Steiner. Big Poppa Pump fights back and a series of uppercuts that back Luger into the corner then whips him across the ring. Steiner nails him with a Steiner Line then follows up with a side suplex. Steiner exits the ring and starts talking to Miss Elizabeth on the outside. Luger rolls out of the ring and attempts to nail Steiner from behind, but Poppa Pump blocks a double axe handle and nails him with a series of right hands. Steiner slams Luger to the ground then rolls him into the ring. Steiner covers him for a near fall and the match continues. Steinerís momentum is quickly taken away by a low blow from Luger. The Total Package nails Steiner with a forearm and sets him in the Torture Rack. Big Poppa holds on and refuses to tap out. After being in the rack for nearly a minute, Steiner manages to get out by poking Luger in the eye. Luger drops Steiner and Poppa Pump falls to the canvas. Big Poppa Pump slowly gets to his feet when Luger starts charging towards him. With a back body drop, Steiner sends Luger over the ropes and onto the floor. Steiner continues to regroup in the ring while the Total Package is laid out. Scott Steiner rolls to the outside and rolls Luger into the ring and hits the Frankensteiner on him. Scott rolls Luger up for the 1...2...3.
Scott Steiner advances in the tournament via pinfall (8:01)

Big Poppa Pumpís hand is raised following the match. Steiner is about to leave the ring when he is nailed from behind by Luger. The Total Package orders Liz to bring in a led pipe. Elizabeth refuses and Luger continues to be persistent. Luger goes to the outside and grabs the pipe himself. He brings it into the ring and wines up to nail Steiner when Liz gets in and pulls the pipe out of Lugerís hand. The Total Package turns and throws Elizabeth to the canvas then uses the pipe to crack the skull of Steiner. Steiner is busted wide open as Luger leaves the ring.

Commercial

Backstage:
The Total Package Lex Luger is shown with Jeremy Borash.

(JB) Fans want to know why you would do such a terrible thing as you did before the break. Why would you use a pipe on Scott Steiner and what did Miss Elizabeth do to deserve the treatment you gave her?

(Lex) Steiner is nothing more than a punk who should learn to its best to quit. Heís gotten in my way far too many times in the past and Iím sick to death of his crap. And as far as Liz is concerned, she poked her nose into the business that doesnít have anything to do with her. She should learn when itís best to just shut up and support your man. She doesnít realize that and Iíll be damned if Iím going to let her keep me down. This is a brand new time for WCW and the Total Package is going to come out on top.

(JB) Well luckily enough Scott Steiner has moved on in the tournament later tonight.

Lex grabs JB by the collar of his shirt.

(Lex) Luckily for you Iím not going to kick your teeth down your throat. I have far bigger plans for the World Heavyweight Championship and WCW later tonight.

Luger lets go of JB and leaves for his locker.

Back inside the arena, Tony and the King comment on what Luger is talking about.

(Tony) I wonder what Luger is referring to when he say he has far bigger plans for the World Championship?

(King) Heís kicked out of the tournament now so itís not as if heís going to walk out of here the new WCW Champion.

David Penzer introduces the next contest for WCW Monday Nitro.

WCW World Heavyweight Championship Tournament
Sting vs. Jeff Jarrett

The Icon of WCW receives a huge reaction from the Baltimore crowd as he walks down the aisle for his match. The Chosen One receives heat as he taunts some of the fans on his way down to the ring. The match kicks off with the two of them locking up in the ring. The Stinger backs Jarrett into the corner than nails him with a couple of chops to the chest. Sting whips Jarrett across the ring and charges after with a Clothesline. The Chosen One staggers out of the corner and Sting slams him to the canvas face first.

Sting advances in the tournament via submission (4:33)


Sting releases the hold and gives a WOOOO to the fans before leaves the ring area.

Backstage:
Mean Gene interviews Kevin Nash

(Gene) Ladies and Gentlemen, I have the privilege of interviewing one of the greatest big men in our sport, Big Sexy Kevin Nash. Tonight, you have the opportunity to walk out the new World Heavyweight Champion by simply eliminating the other wrestlers in the tournament. What is your strategy tonight?

(Nash) Itís quite simple Gene, one the best ways to get on top is to simply let others beat the holy hell out of each other, then go in for the kill. Youíve already seen two wrestlers advance in the tournament with Scott Steiener and Sting. Both men had a hard fought match and one of them was beat within an inch of his life, so itís going to be quite easy to go in for the kill later.

(Gene) Youíll be getting your opportunity to advance by facing Buff Bagwell later tonight. Are you ready for that?

(Nash) Iím as ready as Iíll ever be. You see, Buff Bagwell is a good wrestler, but heís never been the World Heavyweight Champion before. He doesnít have the killer instinct needed to be the best. Iíve been the World Champion on several occasions. I know what itís like to be at the top. Bagwell and everyone else needs to be on notice that my boys and I are going to take WCW by storm tonight. You want history, just wait and youíll see history be made right here tonight.

Backstage:
Eric Bischoff is shown backstage talking with some of the WCW talent. Bischoff starts working his way out to the ring.

(Tony) The owner of WCW is on his way out to the ring. I wonder what he has to say.

(King) Weíre going to find out what the boss is up to when we get back.

Commercial

WCW Nitro returns with Eric Bischoffís music playing. The Owner of WCW enters the arena and fans give him a huge pop. Bischoff has is jet black hair and a black suit on as he struts down the ring. Eric climbs through the ropes and is handed a microphone by David Penzer. A ďthank you BischoffĒ chant starts for the owner.

(Eric) Thank you very much, and please remember that I love each and every single one of you too... Almost a year ago, I was sitting back waiting to see what the fate of World Championship Wrestling was going to be. I remember eagerly sitting by my phone, talking with investors, and urging AOL Time Warner to sell WCW to me. This is the company that I helped build from the ground up; WCW is the company that has made an impact on every wrestling fanís life, and I wasnít going to watch it get sucked into the WWF. Itís taken several months, but finally World Championship Wrestling is back and on HBO. This is the company that has pushed the envelope and entertained a generation of wrestling fans. Weíre going to do that again, but this time itís all about taking no prisoners. Weíre well on our way tonight with the World Heavyweight Championship Tournament, but I want all of you to know that WCW isnít just about being the World Heavyweight Champion. Every championship in this company is worth its weight. Next week the Cruiserweights will have their chance to shine followed by the Tag Team Division. This will culminate to the biggest return in professional wrestling history when WCW Superbrawl comes back to Pay-Per-View. The highlight of that pay-per-view will be the return of Goldberg.

Eric pauses as the ďGoldbergĒ chants start in Baltimore.

(Eric) Goldberg will make his return, but Iím not going to spoil the surprise of letting you know who his opponent is. Iíll let you wait to see, but believe me when I tell you that you will not be disappointed.

ďThus Sprach ZarathustraĒ plays and the Nature Boy Ric Flair arrives in Baltimore. Fans jump to their feet as Flair poses at the entrance way and the pyro goes off. Clad in a suit and tie, the Nature Boy styles and profiles his way down to the ring. Flair steps through the ropes and gives a huge WOOOOOO to the crowd before being handed a microphone.

(Eric) What brings you out to my ring Ric?

(Ric) Your ring? You think this is your ring?

(Eric) Well, I do own WCW, so yes this is my ring and youíre interrupting me now and really just pissing me off.

(Ric) Iíve been the champion in this ring longer than youíve owned it. WCW is my company and this is my ring.

(Eric) I think youíve been dropped on your head too many times Ric, so let me make this very simple... WCW is my company... I own W...C...W.

(Ric) Let me make something quite clear for you Eric. When you looked to investors to loan you money for WCW, what you didnít realize that your loan came from me... That means, Weíre Partners.

Ric throws an arm around Bischoff and smiles. Eric is quite upset about the news and Flair struts around the ring before giving a big WOOOOOO.

(Ric) So donít get too cozy in your office because you have to answer to me. I will be watching you like a hawk to make sure you donít mess up Bischoff. Remember that The Nature Boy still is and will always be... The Man, Iím better than you and am a wrestling God! WOOOOOO

Flairís music plays and the Nature Boy leaves the ring with Bischoff still looking visibly upset.

(Tony) I canít believe what weíve just heard. The Nature Boy is now the co-owner of WCW.

(King) Bischoff looks like heís either very angry or very constipated, either way heís definitely uncomfortable.

Commercial

The three men in ski masks continue to beat the two of them down with chains and pipes. They grab Booker and chain him against the guard rail before continuing to beat the living hell out of him, busting him wide open. Two of the men go back into the ring and continue choking out Shane Douglas in the centre of the ring. Security race to the ring and the men in the ski masks jump over the barricade and exit through the crowd.

(Tony) Oh my god, I canít believe what we just witnessed. Who are those men?

(King) I donít know who they are, but hopefully someone will stop them.

Default Re: WCW 2002: The Return

WRESTLING NEWS:

WWF has recently let contracts slide on a couple of their superstars. There is no word yet who they are, but rumours are circulating that WCW may attempt to pick these wrestlers up if they haven't already done so.

WCW Nitro returned this past week with an impressive viewership of 3.2 Million fans tuning in. Although WWF still beat WCW in the ratings the feeling is that WCW made a wise decision to wait a few months before returning to television. The most watched segment was the World Heavyweight Championship Main Event between Scott Steiner and Kevin Nash. Over 3.6 Million fans tuned in for the main event. WCW executives are happy with the momentum they built up.

Now that the ECW Invasion is over in WWF, many feel that Vince McMahon dropped the ball by letting Rob Van Dam and Rhino go. WWF released them back in October before the invasion was over.

WWF is questioning whether or not they should keep the Unified ECWWF on Chris Benoit until Wrestlemania or if they should have him drop the title to The Rock at the Royal Rumble. Many thought Chris Jericho would have the World Title, but Jericho has refused to sign a new contract with WWF.

WCW is considering having Hollywood Hogan and Scott Steiner fight for the World Heavyweight Championship, playing off the fact that Hogan didn't lose the belt at the Bash at the Beach 2000, His last appearance with the company. No word on whether they would push for that to happen at Superbrawl or wait on it.

WCW Monday Nitro Preview:

What would World Championship Wrestling be without controversy? The debut of WCW Nitro on HBO was not without controversy as four massed assailants attacked several of WCW's stars throughout the night. Questions surround WCW as to who these men are and what their purpose is for the assaults. Who is next on their hit list and who is behind their attacks?

WCW crowned it's new world Heavyweight Champion as Big Poppa Pump Scott Steiner walked out victorious in the tournament. This week on Nitro the Cruiserweight Championship will be on the line as three of WCW's raising stars square off in a ladder match. Who will climb the ladder to the top of WCW's Cruiserweight ranks?

The road to Superbrawl will be paved this week as eight of WCW's greatest wrestlers square off in WCW's first ever beat the clock challenge. The winner will receive a World Title Shot against Big Poppa Pump Scott Steiner at Superbrawl. Who will emerge as the Number 1 contender?

Last week it was announced that Bill Goldberg will be returning to WCW for Superbrawl. Jerry The King Lawler will reveal his opponent this week live from Boston.

really solid show.

So we know that Nash is a member of this group attacking wrestlers, but why didn't Hogan even attempt to unmask them?

Putting the belt on Steiner is a solid choice. He and Booker are the two best for the job, seeing that WCW was carried by them at the end. Steiner is apparently a face here, but as a heel, he is fantastic and his goofy promo style really helps get him heat.

I liked your show alot, but I think it would have been better suited to have the World Title tournament more spread out, and crown the champion at the PPV. The US and Tag titles are more suited to changing hands on TV, but the World Title... you have to give the fans something to pay for to buy a PPV (I know, I know its not real life...)

This Flair-Bischoff power struggle stuff will never end. as long as someone is doing WCW BtBers, Flair and Bischoff will battle to control WCW, and rightfully so. Flair is the epitome of WCW/NWA, and Bischoff is responsible for its greatest era of growth and prosperity.

Hopefully AJ Styles gets a push. not right away, but he can put on exciting matches even at his young age. He would be a good person to take the pin in the 3 way dance for the cruiserweight strap.

If Hogan is a face, are we going back to Hulk, or will he stay Hollywood? I think at his advanced age, Hogan can get by with the whatever it takes to win mentality of a Hollywood, but fans will melt over Hulkamania.

I'm praying for an ECW influx of talent. WWF doesn't need them anyway, and WCW could use some roster remolding. I think you have a solid base, but there are a few guys there (Sting, Hogan, Nash, Luger) that shouldn't be in the limelight constantly.

Thanks for the reply... I'm working on rebuilding the company from the ground up, with the plan being to have the old dogs like Hogan, Sting, Nash, and Luger help to elevate and compliment the work of the young guys like Steiner, Bagwell, Booker, and Henning. We will see the influx of ECW talent come in and refresh the roster and also give the company some refreshing storylines.

Hogan is going to be taking on the Hollywood Hogan/Hulkamania persona that he had in WWE after WM 18 when he turned good again.

And as for Ric Flair/Eric Bischoff, I'm hopeing to put a great spin on that storyline so that it's something that hasn't really been done before.

The next show will be posted tomorrow.
