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 […]

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 […]

Thunder – February 21, 2001: It’s So Easy

Thunder Date: February 21, 2001 Location: Von Braun Civic Center, Huntsville, Alabama Commentators: Mike Tenay, Tony Schiavone It’s hard to believe we’ve got less than a month to go. The last pay per view is called Greed because the wrestling universe is funny that was. Earlier this week we found out that Diamond Dallas Page […]

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 – January 24, 2001: The New WCW

Thunder Date: January 24, 2001 Location: Lawrence Joel Memorial Coliseum, Winston-Salem, North Carolina Commentators: Mike Tenay, Tony Schiavone We’re still just living in Ric Flair’s WCW as he and the Elite (the unofficial name at the moment) destroy everything in sight, though to be fair it’s more interesting than the Sid Rules The World stuff […]

Thunder – January 10, 2001: Goldberg Can’t Do Everything

Thunder Date: January 10, 2001 Location: X-Cel Energy Center, St. Paul, Minnesota Attendance: 4,500 Commentators: Mike Tenay, Stevie Ray, Tony Schiavone It’s the final show before Sin and things aren’t looking all that interesting. The four way for the World Title has the potential to be an absolute disaster as Sid/Steiner/Jarrett don’t have the best […]

Mayhem 2000: A New Way To Suck

Mayhem 2000 Date: November 26, 2000 Location: Wisconsin Center Arena, Milwaukee, Wisconsin Attendance: 3,800 Commentators: Tony Schiavone, Stevie Ray, Mark Madden We’re running out of pay per views here with just four more after this one. Things are about as bad as they’ve been since Russo left, including a rather uninteresting main event of Booker […]

Thunder – November 22, 2000: The Clouds Are Back Again

Thunder Date: November 22, 2000 Location: Augusta-Richmond County Civic Center, Augusta, Georgia Attendance: 3,800 Commentators: Mike Tenay, Stevie Ray, Tony Schiavone It’s the go home show for Mayhem and unfortunately that means we’re not likely to see much tonight. We might get some build towards the Tag Team Title match which was only added on […]

Monday Nitro – November 20, 2000: Set It Up, Blow It Off

Monday Nitro #267 Date: November 20, 2000 Location: Augusta-Richmond County Civic Center, Augusta, Georgia Attendance: 3,000 Commentators: Tony Schiavone, Mark Madden, Scott Hudson It’s the last Nitro before Mayhem and most of the show would seem to be set up already. Scott Steiner continues to be one of the strongest heels the company has pushed […]
