Thunder – May 6, 1999: The Dumping Ground

Thunder Date: May 6, 1999 Location: Bryce Jordan Center, State College, Pennsylvania Commentators: Mike Tenay, Larry Zbyszko It’s the go home show for Slamboree and things are getting bad around here. Between the nonsensical stories and the boring matches leading up to a show that has barely been hyped outside of the main event, I’m […]

Thunder – April 1, 1999: Hogan vs. Leslie

Thunder Date: April 1, 1999 Location: Richmond Coliseum, Richmond, Virginia Commentators: Bobby Heenan, Mike Tenay, Tony Schiavone We’re closing in on Spring Stampede and the card is starting to come into focus.

Thunder – February 18, 1999: Well…..It Is Better

Thunder Date: February 18, 1999 Location: E Center, Salt Lake City, Utah Attendance: 9,159 Commentators: Mike Tenay, Tony Schiavone, Bobby Heenan This show has to be better than Nitro.

Monday Nitro Extra Date: November 24, 1998 Location: Van Andel Arena, Grand Rapids, Michigan Commentators: Mike Tenay, Tony Schiavone, Larry Zbyszko, Bobby Heenan This is a special one hour episode on a Tuesday. I guess three hours a week isn’t enough for all of the AWESOME action that you get on a Nitro so we […]

Thunder – August 20, 1998: The March To War

Thunder Date: August 20, 1998 Location: Fargodome, Fargo, North Dakota Attendance: 9,721 Commentators: Mike Tenay, Lee Marshall, Tony Schiavone, Bobby Heenan This is a rare taped show, meaning we’re not likely to get anything new on the stories from Monday.
