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 – March 12, 2001: Best Left Forgotten

Monday Nitro #281 Date: March 12, 2001 Location: Knoxville Civic Coliseum, Knoxville, Tennessee Commentators: Tony Schiavone, Scott Hudson It’s Greed week and that means we’ll likely hear more about Dusty Rhodes and his rather unfunny stipulation for Sunday’s tag match. Other than that it’s time for the final push towards the pay per view, which […]

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 […]

Thunder – February 7, 2001: Yul Brynner Would Be Disappointed

Thunder Date: February 7, 2001 Location: Bankcorpsouth Center, Tupelo, Mississippi Commentators: Tony Schiavone, Mike Tenay Amazingly enough, we’re coming in off a surprise heel turn this past Monday as Rick Steiner joined up with Flair’s group to reunited with his brother yet again. They really aren’t even hiding the fact that this is another NWO […]

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 […]

Sin 2001 (2016 Redo): One Of Their Many Problems

Sin Date: January 18, 2001 Location: Conseco Fieldhouse, Indianapolis, Indiana Attendance: 6,617 Commentators: Tony Schiavone, Scott Hudson We’re down to three WCW pay per views to go and the build to this one hasn’t exactly instilled me with confidence. The main event is a four way for the World Title with a mystery man included. […]
