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 […]

Summerslam Count-Up – 2001: Even The Alliance Can’t Screw This Up

Summerslam 2001 Date: August 19, 2001 Location: Compaq Center, San Jose, California Attendance: 15,293 Commentators: Jim Ross, Paul Heyman Much like last year, a lot has changed in the last year. For one thing the Monday Night Wars are over and the WWF has absorbed the other two major companies to form the superpower that […]

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 […]

SuperBrawl Revenge (SuperBrawl 2001, 2016 Redo): One More Time

SuperBrawl Revenge Date: February 18, 2001 Location: Nashville Municipal Auditorium, Nashville, Tennessee Attendance: 4,395 Commentators: Tony Schiavone, Scott Hudson I’m still not sure what the REVENGE subtitle is referring to but it might be due to the fact that we’ve seen several of these matches on TV in recent weeks. The main event is Kevin […]

Thunder – July 12, 2000: How To Book A Bad Show Version II

Thunder Date: July 12, 2000 Location: North Charleston Coliseum, North Charleston, South Carolina Commentators: Bobby Heenan, Tony Schiavone It still feels weird to say that Booker T. is the World Champion but it’s a nice feeling to have. For once things feel fresh and with the addition of the newcomers in the tag division, there’s […]

Monday Nitro – July 10, 2000: We Don’t Talk About That Around Here

Monday Nitro #248 Date: July 10, 2000 Location: Jacksonville Coliseum, Jacksonville, Florida Attendance: 5,257 Commentators: Scott Hudson, Mark Madden, Tony Schiavone We’re done with Bash at the Beach and that means a lot has changed in WCW. First of all, Booker T. is World Champion after a surprise change in last night’s title match. This […]

Bash at the Beach 2000 (2015 Redo): Your New Hero

Bash at the Beach 2000 Date: July 9, 2000 Location: Ocean Center, Daytona Beach, Florida Attendance: 6,572 Commentators: Tony Schiavone, Scott Hudson, Mark Madden Oh boy. After all those nice weeks of no Russo and/or Bischoff to screw things up, tonight we’re back to the old ways because this wrestling and storytelling stuff must be […]

Thunder – July 5, 2000: And So, It Ends

Thunder Date: July 5, 2000 Location: Civic Center, Columbus, Georgia Attendance: 3,088 Commentators: Bobby Heenan, Mike Tenay, Tony Schiavone It’s the go home show for Bash at the Beach, meaning my moderate smile about WCW is about to go away. We’re still in the “Can Jeff Jarrett build a whole main event by himself, even […]

Monday Nitro – July 3, 2000: It’s Coming And We Can’t Stop It

Monday Nitro #247 Date: July 3, 2000 Location: Civic Center, Charleston, West Virginia Commentators: Tony Schiavone, Mark Madden, Scott Hudson It’s the go home show for Bash at the Beach and I can’t imagine we’ll be seeing Hulk Hogan here tonight to set up the title match because that’s probably not in his contract. Other […]
