Smackdown – April 17, 2003: The Old (Really Old) Smackeroo

Smackdown Date: April 17, 2003 Location: Norfolk Scope, Norfolk, Virginia Commentators: Michael Cole, Tazz It’s tournament night as we have the finals to crown a new #1 contender. John Cena will be facing Chris Benoit, which is pretty much the best final they could have gone for. Cena should be the favorite after having spent […]

Smackdown – April 10, 2003: The Old Men Program

Smackdown Date: April 10, 2003 Location: Allstate Arena, Chicago, Illinois Commentators: Michael Cole, Tazz It’s tournament time and that means some bigger matches tonight. The tournament seems to be John Cena’s to win, especially with the FBI around to mess with Undertaker. Why he’s stuck with the FBI isn’t clear, but it’s also not clear […]

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. […]

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 […]

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. […]

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 – 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 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 – December 12, 2000: Might As Well Ruin Tuesday

Monday Night #270 Date: December 12, 2000 Location: Centurytel Center, Bossier City, Louisiana Commentators: Stevie Ray, Tony Schiavone, Scott Hudson It’s the go home show for the final Starrcade and the show is airing on a Tuesday, likely due to something else getting the regular timeslot on TNT. These recent shows have ranged from mostly […]
