Monday Nitro – February 19, 2001: One More Funeral

Monday Nitro #278 Date: February 19, 2001 Location: Von Braun Civic Center, Huntsville, Alabama Commentators: Scott Hudson, Tony Schiavone At this point, I can’t imagine they’ll ever leave the southeast again. We’re past SuperBrawl and as is far too often the case with pay per views, not a lot happened. Scott Steiner retired Kevin Nash […]

Thunder – February 14, 2001: An Acceptable Valentine’s Day Present

Thunder Date: February 14, 2001 Location: Mississippi Coast Coliseum, Biloxi, Mississippi Commentators: Tony Schiavone, Mike Tenay This show is the equivalent of going to the gas station and buying your significant other transmission fluid for Valentine’s Day. It’s also the final show before SuperBrawl and believe it or not there’s something advertised for this week. […]

Monday Nitro – February 12, 2001: Not This Again

Monday Nitro #277 Date: February 12, 2001 Location: Mississippi Coast Coliseum, Biloxi, Mississippi Commentators: Tony Schiavone, Scott Hudson It’s the go home show for SuperBrawl and it’s probably not a good sign that they’re in Mississippi for the second week in a row. We’re set for the pay per view and the card isn’t exactly […]

Thunder – February 7, 2001: Yul Brynner Would Be Disappointed

Thunder Date: February 7, 2001 Location: Bankcorpsouth Center, Tupelo, Mississippi Commentators: Tony Schiavone, Mike Tenay Amazingly enough, we’re coming in off a surprise heel turn this past Monday as Rick Steiner joined up with Flair’s group to reunited with his brother yet again. They really aren’t even hiding the fact that this is another NWO […]

Monday Nitro – February 5, 2001: After All This Time

Monday Nitro #276 Date: February 5, 2001 Location: Bankcorpsouth Center, Tupelo, Mississippi Commentators: Scott Hudson, Tony Schiavone Things are starting to build up towards SuperBrawl and the unbelievably fresh MEGA SHOWDOWN between Scott Steiner and Kevin Nash because that’s what’s going to get the young’uns talking about WCW as they walk through the airport. If […]

Thunder – January 31, 2001: I Think I Feel A Stupid Plan Coming On

Thunder Date: January 31, 2001 Location: Baltimore Arena, Baltimore, Maryland Commentators: Mike Tenay, Tony Schiavone I’m running out of things to say about these intros. We have less than two months to go in this company and it’s most likely a skippable B-show with a main event between two midcarders who don’t have an interesting […]

Monday Nitro – January 29, 2001: The Moral Of The Story

Monday Nitro #275 Date: January 29, 2001 Location: Baltimore Arena, Baltimore, Maryland Commentators: Scott Hudson, Tony Schiavone It’s always weird to me when we reach the last every episode in a given month but this is the final ever episode of Monday Nitro in January. Ok so maybe this is just a way to fill […]

Thunder – January 24, 2001: The New WCW

Thunder Date: January 24, 2001 Location: Lawrence Joel Memorial Coliseum, Winston-Salem, North Carolina Commentators: Mike Tenay, Tony Schiavone We’re still just living in Ric Flair’s WCW as he and the Elite (the unofficial name at the moment) destroy everything in sight, though to be fair it’s more interesting than the Sid Rules The World stuff […]

Monday Nitro – January 23, 2001: Same Old, Same Really Old

Monday Nitro #274 Date: January 23, 2001 Location: Lawrence Joel Memorial Coliseum, Winston-Salem, North Carolina Commentators: Scott Hudson, Tony Schiavone We’re on a Tuesday this week as TNT has stopped pretending that Nitro is the ratings juggernaut it was back in the day. It’s the new era of WCW (the latest one that is) with […]

Thunder – January 17, 2001: I Can Get Through This

Thunder Date: January 17, 2001 Location: Allen County Coliseum, Fort Wayne, Indiana Attendance: 4,836 Commentators: Tony Schiavone, Mike Tenay We’re coming off an interesting show Monday where things have changed a bit yet still feel very much the same. In this case Ric Flair is now all evil for reasons that aren’t clear (and will […]
