Smackdown – April 18, 2002: The Hogan Problem

Smackdown Date: April 18, 2002 Location: Compaq Center, Houston, Texas Commentators: Tazz, Michael Cole It’s the go home show for Backlash and since this is Smackdown, we have a tag team main event which doesn’t have a lot to do with the pay per view. In this case it’s HHH/Hulk Hogan vs. Chris Jericho/Kurt Angle […]

Smackdown – August 4, 2002: Just Like Raw

Smackdown Date: April 4, 2002 Location: Blue Cross Arena, Rochester, New York Attendance: 8,500 Commentators: Michael Cole, Tazz After Monday’s less than amazing debut for Raw, it’s time to see if Smackdown can save the opening week of the Brand Split. This show has its share of stars including The Rock, Chris Jericho, Hulk Hogan […]

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 […]

Greed (2016 Redo): From A Flair For The Gold To Burritos

Greed Date: March 18, 2001 Location: Jacksonville Municipal Coliseum, Jacksonville, Florida Attendance: 5,030 Commentators: Tony Schiavone, Scott Hudson After all that, we’ve come down to this. Seventeen years ago, the first WCW (NWA at the time) super show aired and it was called Starrcade. The main event of that show saw Ric Flair win the […]

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 – 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
