New E-Book: KB’s Monday Nitro and Thunder Reviews Volume V with Special Price

A comprehensive look back at every episode of WCW Monday Nitro and Thunder from January – June 1999. WCW is in trouble and there’s not much of a better way to put it. They’re being defeated by Monday Night Raw in the Monday Night Wars, but as any wrestling historian can tell you, that doesn’t […]

Coming Friday: Complete Monday Nitro/Thunder Reviews Volume 5

I’m getting closer to wrapping up this series as we hit 1999 and the dark times for WCW. In case you haven’t seen the first four, here they are: Volume 1 Volume 2 Volume 3 Volume 4   In case that’s not enough for you, here’s my Amazon author page with all of my books […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 – 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 […]
