Re: The Booking Game
Triple Threat for the WCW World Heavyweight Championship
Special Guest Referee: Roddy Piper
Bret Hart (c) vs. Goldberg vs. Sid Vicious
Bret's the champ and a Battle Royal is booked on Nitro to determine who would challenge Bret for the title at Starrcade. The Battle Royal comes down to Goldberg and Sid as the last two but Da Man and The Millennium Man pull a "Royal Rumble 1994" and both go over the top rope at the same time, eliminating each other. A lot of arguments ensue over whose feet touched first but The Powers That Be decide that both Goldberg and Sid will get the shot and have a Triple Threat with Bret for the title, which Bret gladly is in favour for as he's a fighting champion. It's a competitive Triple Threat, we see double teams, interactions with Piper and all that, anybody looks like they will take it. There's no rules in a Triple Threat and Creative Control run down to the ring and attack Sid on the outside and brawl with him up the aisle out of the arena, the fans are wondering what is going on as the ring is left all to Bret and Goldberg. Goldberg spears Bret and then setups for the Jackhammer but the fans are left even more confused though as Jeff Jarrett runs out and hits Goldberg over his head with his Guitar but it doesn't have any effect on him and Goldberg is still standing. Jarrett is shocked and grabbed by the throat, kneed in the gut to setup for a Jackhammer but Kevin Nash enters the ring from behind along with Scott Hall and kicks Goldberg in the groin and whacks him across the back with a chair then hits him over the head with the chair before planting him on the chair with the Jacknife Powerbomb. Scott Hall pulls out a familiar weapon, the taser he used on Goldberg the previous year to help end his streak and he zaps Goldberg with it again on the chest as he's layed out on the mat. Bret gets back up on his feet and sees Nash, Hall and Jarrett's handiwork as if he doesn't know what's going on...but then Bret locks Goldberg in the Sharpshooter, who is already unconscious and not giving any response, making Piper call for the bell as he doesn't know what's going on either. Piper questions Bret after the match as to what just happened but Bret whacks him across the face with the WCW Title before raising up the Wolfpac sign and touching with Nash, Hall and Jarrett to form the NWO 2000. Hall pulls out a can of spray from his back pocket and Bret, Nash, Hall and Jarrett spray "NWO" all over Goldberg and Piper's backs, on the title and on the ring mat to make it official that the NWO is back.
WCW United States Championship
Chris Benoit (c) vs. Kevin Nash
Scott Hall is forced to vacate the US Title due to injury and Chris Benoit becomes the new champ. But Kevin Nash steps in his best's friends place as he challenges Benoit for the belt and attempts to bring it back to The Outsiders. Benoit also has something to prove and wants to make Nash pay as he coined the term "Vanilla Midget" for him and is one of the main guys who held him back in WCW. Nash has the size and power advantage but Benoit has the speed and technical prowess to show that he can hang with Nash and is no one for Big Sexy to underestimate as he thought he could as Benoit takes the fight to him and almost comes close to making him tap out to the Crossface but Scott Hall comes down to the ring, forcing Benoit to break up the submission and fend off an attack from Hall as he chops him down on the outside. But it proves costly for Benoit as he gets a big boot and a Jacknife Powerbomb from Nash as soon as he gets back in the ring and Nash wins the United States Championship for the first time ever in his career. Nash awards the belt to Jarrett when he becomes the new Commissioner.
Guitar and Baseball Bat On A Pole Match
Sting vs. Jeff Jarrett
Jarrett has been targeting Sting and giving him problems and tells The Franchise that he needs to step aside as there's a new Chosen One in WCW. Sting isn't stepping aside for a young punk like Jarrett though. Jarrett has attacked Sting with his Guitar numerous times and Sting has retaliated back numerous times with his Baseball Bat. The Powers That Be love a good old pole match and decide to take both weapons and hang them up in opposite corners on a pole. Both weapons have been pulled down with Sting grabbing Jarrett's Guitar and Jarrett grabbing Sting's Baseball Bat but neither weapon get used yet as the other beats their opponent before they can use the weapons. The Stinger is more dominant than Jarrett, which prompts Creative Control to run out and help The Chosen One out, bringing into question if Jarrett is The Power That Be's "Chosen One". Sting fends off Gerald and Patrick though with his Baseball Bat before he turns his attention back to Jarrett, looking to hit a homerun on Jarrett. Jarrett's picked up his Guitar aswell and both Sting and Jarrett hit each other at the same time with their weapons, knocking both guys out cold, Sting falls to the mat first and Jarrett falls second on top of Sting for the pin, gaining the win over The Icon in a Austin/HHH No Way Out 2001 style finish.
Diamond Dallas Page (w/ Kimberly) vs. The Total Package (w/ Elizabeth)
DDP has turned babyface once again in a feud with his former ally, The Total Package, who turned on him, determining their alliance was a failure and he's better off on his own. Elizabeth has been helping her man in attacks against DDP but DDP has brought Kimberly in his corner to combat Liz if she attempts to interfere. Kim and Liz get into a catfight and The Total Package goes bang on the receiving end of The Diamond Cutter and DDP gets his revenge.
Dustin Rhodes vs. David Flair
The two sons of the legendary stars who helped started it all in WCW and went face to face at two Starrcade's in a row in 84 and 85, do battle in the names and legacies of their fathers. Dustin attempts to have a friendship with David, not wanting to let their fathers' feud get in the way of a relationship between them, but David is batshit insane and attacks Dustin with his Crowbar and attacks Dusty too, much to Ric's disapproval, who David is doing it for. Dustin's no stranger to being batshit insane and goes nuts on David right back, resulting in this Bunkhouse Brawl between the two. It's one hell of a hardcore brawl between the two. The end comes when Dustin attempts Shattered Dreams on David but a crazy obsessed fan by the name of Daffney runs into the ring to save David as Dustin looks on confused as security haul away Daffney. The distraction is enough to provide David with an opportunity to hit Dustin with his Crowbar upside the head and win the match.
No. 1 Contendership for the WCW Tag Team Titles
Harlem Heat (w/ Midnight) vs. The Mamalukes (w/ Tony Marinara)
Disco Inferno isn't the only who owes a debt to Tony Marinara, Stevie Ray also owes a debt to Tony Marinara and The Mamalukes but can't pay it off. Tony has a solution though to pay off the debt, he finds out Harlem Heat are the No. 1 Contenders for the Tag Team Titles and wants Harlem Heat to give up their No. 1 Contendership to The Mamalukes. Booker T doesn't know what his brother has been up to but Stevie Ray confesses to Booker after Marinara's offer, which angers Booker and he refuses to give up the contendership. Booker and Midnight give Stevie a piece of their mind, Stevie has no problem with Booker venting his frustrations but has a problem with Midnight doing the same as he doesn't like her and wants her out of the team as he feels she's coming between him and his brother but Booker sticks up for her as Stevie shouts at her to shut up and leave the team. Booker won't give up their title shot and says The Mamalukes will have to beat them to get it. The fight is on between the Italian mobsters and former Harlem gangsters. Stevie Ray isn't performing to his usual standards in the match and is off while Booker and Midnight are on their game. Marinara interferes but Midnight takes care of him with a Military Press Slam, showing off her amazing power. The Mamalukes take out Midnight though and finish off Stevie Ray after he accidentally hits his own brother with the slapjack, losing the No. 1 Contendership to The Mamalukes. Booker is going off on his brother after the match, telling him he needs to pull his shit together, Stevie Ray is distraught after the match, he's lost everything, the No. 1 Contendership, his pride, the trust of the people around him, he feels his brother has been taken away from him by Midnight, all these issues cause Stevie to just finally snap and he attacks Midnight after Booker leaves the ring, just beating her down with the slapjack. Booker runs back into the ring and shoves Stevie away, screaming at him, asking him what the hell he's doing. Knowing he's lost Booker to Midnight, Stevie Ray hits Booker with the slapjack once again, this time on purpose, turning on him and beating away at both Midnight and Booker with the weapon over and over again until the referees and backstage personnel stop him. One of WCW's biggest tag teams in history, Harlem Heat, have broken up at WCW's biggest PPV and so begins the feud between the two brothers.
Six Man Tag Team Match
The Revolution (w/ Asya) vs. Creative Control and Curt Hennig (w/ Shane)
The Revolution are sick of The Powers That Be and are tired of the backstage politics. They've seen their former ally, Chris Benoit, rise up the card and become United States Champion twice while they are still stuck floating around the card, feeling mis-used. They want the same chances Benoit has been given. Gerald, Patrick and Curt are sent to deal with the problem but come up short against them with Curt eating the pinfall and Shane being Asya's whipping boy.
Vampiro (w/ Misfits) vs. Meng (w/ The Taskmaster)
Kevin Sullivan has left The Varsity Club but has resurfaced as The Taskmaster and Vampiro has met his match in the dark realm of WCW, feuding with Sullivan. The Taskmaster recruits his former Dungeon Of Doom acolyte to do his fighting as Meng takes on Vampiro. Vampiro has his backup though in the Misfits. It's a Casket match as The Taskmaster wants to put The Canadian Vampire back in his coffin. Meng is a tough one for Vampiro but with the help of the Misfits, Vampiro locks him in the Casket and drills Sullivan on top of the Casket with The Nail In The Coffin. After the match, Meng shows why is he the most feared and toughest wrestler to grace the business as he smashes the Casket into pieces from inside the Casket with his bare hands and feet, breaking out of the Casket and leaving on his own two feet. Even a Casket can't keep Meng down.
Steve Williams (w/ Oklahoma) vs. Rick Steiner (w/ Mike Rotunda and Leia Meow)
The rivalry between The Steiner Brothers and The Miracle Violence Connection reignites with this match. But the issue is over The Varsity Club as Steve Williams, a former member of the group, is offered his spot back in the club after Sullivan leaves the group to reform The Dungeon Of Doom with Meng. Williams accepts at first and teams with Steiner in a tag team match on Nitro but it all turns out to be a ruse as Williams attacks Steiner and leaves him laying with The Oklahoma Stampede, bitter over not being asked to rejoin the group in the first place. What's left of The Varsity Club takes on Steve Williams and O.K. The two tough guys have a back and forth contest, looking like it could go either way. Oklahoma confronts Rotunda and Leia Meow but gets taken out by Rotunda, who then gets taken out by an Oklahoma Stampede from Dr. Death on the outside against the ring post onto the floor. However as Williams enters back into the ring, Leia Meow grabs his leg under the bottom rope, providing a distraction as Rick finishes off Steve with the Diving Bulldog for the win.
Triple Threat Match
Madusa vs. Asya vs. Midnight
Triple Threat to determine the toughest female in WCW. Evan Karagias and Spice come out and distract Madusa, providing an opportunity for Asya to take advantage and pin Madusa to win the match. The issues between Madusa and Karagias & Spice are not over.
WCW Hardcore Championship
Norman Smiley (c) vs. Jim Duggan
As a reward for his hard work as the Janitor, Jim Duggan is given a shot at the Hardcore Title from The Powers That Be. This one's a comedy hardcore match with the two taking their brawl from the ring to the backstage area with their fight ending up in the Janitor's closet. Hacksaw Duggan introduces Screamin Norman to his 2x4 but Norman gets a hold of a bottle of bleach in the room and throws some bleach into Duggan's eyes, blinding him and then rolling him up with a Schoolboy for the pin, retaining the Hardcore Title.
Triple Threat for the WCW Cruiserweight Championship
Evan Karagias (c) (w/ Spice) vs. Lash Leroux vs. Disco Inferno (w/ Tony Marinara)
Karagias, Leroux and Inferno have been going at it against each other in singles matches over the Cruiserweight Title for the past couple of months but they all meet up for a Triple Threat at the biggest show in WCW history to kick off the PPV. Disco accidentally laid out Marinara with a chair and cost himself the Cruiserweight Title to Karagias at Mayhem and he still owes money to Marinara but Marinara is giving him one more chance to pay it off by winning the Cruiserweight Title again but this time pawning off the belt so he can raise the money to pay off his debt. And if not then Disco is gonna be forced into working for Marinara and being The Mamalukes' enforcer. Madusa comes out and chases Spice out of the arena looking for revenge as Karagias looks on confused. Disco takes advantage of the distraction, getting the upper hand on Evan. Marinara gets up on the ring apron with a chair in hand and hands it to Disco to use on Karagias but as soon as he turns around, Lash Leroux dropkicks the chair into Disco's face, causing Disco to stumble backwards and knock Marinara off the apron by accident. The Ragin Cajun hits the Whiplash '00 on Disco but before he can pin him, Karagias is back up on his feet and throws Leroux out of the ring and drops down on top of Disco for the pin, stealing the win and retaining the Cruiserweight Title. After the match, Disco is begging Marinara to give him another chance but Marinara walks away from him and leaves as Disco is now forced into working for him, his family and The Mamalukes.
