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 […]

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 Date: January 17, 2001 Location: Allen County Coliseum, Fort Wayne, Indiana Attendance: 4,836 Commentators: Tony Schiavone, Mike Tenay We’re coming off an interesting show Monday where things have changed a bit yet still feel very much the same.

Thunder – November 1, 2000: Much Like TNA

Thunder Date: November 1, 2000 Location: Bren Events Center, Irvine, California Commentators: Mike Tenay, Mark Madden, Tony Schiavone We’re out of October and things are…..well they certainly exist.

Thunder Date: August 2, 2000 Location: Hulman Center, Terre Haute, Indiana Commentators: Tony Schiavone, Stevie Ray, Mike Tenay New Blood Rising is almost here and these shows just get worse and worse.
