Monday Nitro – March 26, 2001 (2016 Redo, Final Episode, Final Thoughts On Nitro): Everybody Have Fun Tonight

Monday Nitro #288 Date: March 26, 2001 Location: Boardwalk Beach Resort, Panama City, Florida Commentators: Tony Schiavone, Scott Hudson I can’t believe I actually typed that. After over five and a half years, we’ve actually arrived at the final episode of Monday Nitro. Tonight is the Night of Champions show with every title being defended. […]

Thunder – March 21, 2001 (Final Episode): How Many Times???

Thunder Date: March 21, 2001 Location: O’Connell Center, Gainesville, Florida Commentators: Tony Schiavone, Mike Tenay We’ve arrived at the final shows. We’ll start off the final episode of the corporate mandate that was Thunder, which has somehow gotten even less important over the years. The big story coming out of Monday is Ric Flair’s face […]

Monday Nitro – March 19, 2001: The Series Finale (Pretty Much)

Monday Nitro #282 Date: March 19, 2001 Location: O’Connell Center, Gainesville, Florida Commentators: Tony Schiavone, Scott Hudson Greed has come and gone and it should be interesting to see where things go with this final real show before next week’s grand (work with me here) finale. Scott Steiner is still World Champion after demolishing Diamond […]

Thunder – March 14, 2001: That’s So Thunder

Thunder Date: March 14, 2001 Location: Knoxville Civic Coliseum, Knoxville, Tennessee Commentators: Tony Schiavone, Mike Tenay The long nightmare is almost over as we only have two shows left, including this one. This is the final show before Greed and things aren’t exactly looking up. Monday’s show was full of old guys having bad matches […]

Monday Nitro – March 12, 2001: Best Left Forgotten

Monday Nitro #281 Date: March 12, 2001 Location: Knoxville Civic Coliseum, Knoxville, Tennessee Commentators: Tony Schiavone, Scott Hudson It’s Greed week and that means we’ll likely hear more about Dusty Rhodes and his rather unfunny stipulation for Sunday’s tag match. Other than that it’s time for the final push towards the pay per view, which […]

Thunder – March 7, 2001: Take WCW Out Back And Shoot It

Thunder Date: March 7, 2001 Location: Bi-Lo Center, Greenville, South Carolina Commentators: Tony Schaivone, Mike Tenay The roll that WCW was on just a few weeks ago seems forever ago as they’re right back to the mostly uninteresting shows that aren’t getting anyone anywhere. Well save for the Steiner Brothers and the other old acts […]

Monday Nitro – March 5, 2001: And Down The Stretch They Come

Monday Nitro #280 Date: March 5, 2001 Location: Bi-Lo Center, Greenville, South Carolina Commentators: Tony Schaivone, Scott Hudson After last week, it’s really hard to say what we should expect here as Nitro worked very well but Thunder was every bit the show you would have expected it to be. I’m liking Scott Steiner vs. […]

Thunder – February 28, 2001: You Can Feel The Cold

Thunder Date: February 28, 2001 Location: Lakefront Arena, New Orleans, Louisiana Commentators: Tony Schiavone, Mike Tenay I know it’s a bit late to matter but WCW is on a roll at this point. The matches are entertaining, the stories make sense and you can tell the story they’re going with. Diamond Dallas Page is the […]

Monday Nitro – February 26, 2001: Down The Stretch They Come

Monday Nitro #279 Date: February 26, 2001 Location: Lakefront Arena, New Orleans, Louisiana Commentators: Tony Schiavone, Scott Hudson We had a pretty good show on Wednesday so maybe we’re in for something a bit better than usual this week. The big story is Diamond Dallas Page as the latest great hope against the Magnificent Seven […]

Thunder – February 21, 2001: It’s So Easy

Thunder Date: February 21, 2001 Location: Von Braun Civic Center, Huntsville, Alabama Commentators: Mike Tenay, Tony Schiavone It’s hard to believe we’ve got less than a month to go. The last pay per view is called Greed because the wrestling universe is funny that was. Earlier this week we found out that Diamond Dallas Page […]
