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 […]

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 […]

Thunder – March 7, 2001: Take WCW Out Back And Shoot It

Thunder Date: March 7, 2001 Location: Bi-Lo Center, Greenville, South Carolina Commentators: Tony Schaivone, Mike Tenay The roll that WCW was on just a few weeks ago seems forever ago as they’re right back to the mostly uninteresting shows that aren’t getting anyone anywhere. Well save for the Steiner Brothers and the other old acts […]

Monday Nitro – March 5, 2001: And Down The Stretch They Come

Monday Nitro #280 Date: March 5, 2001 Location: Bi-Lo Center, Greenville, South Carolina Commentators: Tony Schaivone, Scott Hudson After last week, it’s really hard to say what we should expect here as Nitro worked very well but Thunder was every bit the show you would have expected it to be. I’m liking Scott Steiner vs. […]

Thunder – February 28, 2001: You Can Feel The Cold

Thunder Date: February 28, 2001 Location: Lakefront Arena, New Orleans, Louisiana Commentators: Tony Schiavone, Mike Tenay I know it’s a bit late to matter but WCW is on a roll at this point. The matches are entertaining, the stories make sense and you can tell the story they’re going with. Diamond Dallas Page is the […]

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 – 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 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 – 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 – October 18, 2000: The WCW Rumble

Thunder Date: October 18, 2000 Location: Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne, Australia Commentators: Stevie Ray, Mike Tenay, Tony Schiavone We’ll wrap up the Australian tour with one of wrestling’s best traditions: a battle royal for a future title shot. In this case it’s all for the #1 contendership with the title shot coming on the Nitro […]
