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 – 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. […]

Thunder – December 13, 2000: Just Picture Steve Austin Doing This

Thunder Date: December 13, 2000 Location: Centurytel Center, Bossier City, Louisiana Commentators: Konnan, Tony Schiavone, Mike Tenay It’s the final show before the biggest show of the year and the big match announced for tonight is Sgt. Dewayne Bruce vs. Lex Luger. Odds are Sid and Steiner aren’t going to be in the arena tonight […]

Thunder – December 6, 2000: Ric Flair Changes His Mind

Thunder Date: December 6, 2000 Location: Pershing Auditorium, Lincoln, Nebraska Attendance: 3,433 Commentators: Tony Schiavone, Mike Tenay, Stevie Ray I’m really not sure what to talk about with this one. As weak as Monday Nitro has gotten in recent weeks it’s almost scary to think about how bad Thunder could get at this point. We’re […]

Thunder – November 8, 2000: Get To Mayhem Already

Thunder Date: November 8, 2000 Location: United Center, Chicago, Illinois Attendance: 7,000 Commentators: Tony Schiavone, Mike Tenay, Stevie Ray We’re still rolling towards Mayhem and things are starting to get a bit better. The shows still aren’t great but they’re coherent and you can see where they want to go for the most part. I’ll […]

Thunder – February 23, 2000: Ten Years Too Late

Thunder Date: February 23, 2000 Location: Lawlor Events Center, Reno, Nevada Attendance: 3,777 Commentators: Mike Tenay, Bobby Heenan After Monday it’s very clear that this is the old guys/NWO (assuming you still think of them as the NWO) show. The wrestling has taken a backseat to “let’s see how simple a feud the old guys […]

Mayhem 1999 (2015 Redo): Like Deer In The Headlights

Mayhem 1999 Date: November 21, 1999 Location: Air Canada Center, Toronto, Ontario, Canada Attendance: 13,839 Commentators: Tony Schiavone, Bobby Heenan It’s tournament time with the final four participants in the World Title tournament squaring off to find out who Russo has decided should be his first World Heavyweight Champion. Other than that, we have a […]

Thunder – November 11, 1999: By Jove They’re Getting Better!

Thunder Date: November 11, 1999 Location: Allen County War Memorial, Fort Wayne, Indiana Attendance: 3,283 Commentators: Scott Hudson, Larry Zbyszko We’re closing in on Mayhem and I’m losing my will to fight. Thankfully this is a live show meaning it’s only going to be mostly horrible instead of the scum of the earth that it […]

Thunder – November 4, 1999: Option B

Thunder Date: November 4, 1999 Location: Cox Arena, San Diego, California Attendance: 5,091 Commentators: Larry Zbyszko, Scott Hudson It’s a taped show in the Russo Era, which is the kind of thing nightmares are made of. I’m not sure anyone wants to see what’s going on with this show but at least it’s only two […]

Thunder – September 23, 1999: Why Do These People Have Jobs?

Thunder Date: September 23, 1999 Location: Norfolk Scope, Norfolk, Virginia Attendance: 3,782 Commentators: Mike Tenay, Larry Zbyszko We’re coming off a very welcome week break from this show due to a hurricane last week. This past Monday’s show was more of the same from WCW as the company made sure the young and hard working […]
