    Nitro Preview


    With a week left to go before Bash At The Beach, anything and everything is sure to happen on Nitro this week. And with Nitro and Thunder both taking place at the MGM Studios in Orlando, Florida you can be sure that everyone will be kicking things into high gear leading into the Pay Per View.

    Fans have been aware that the ‘Franchise’ Shane Douglas and Ric Flair will be doing battle for the World Heavyweight Championship but it was last week that a few other matches were announced thanks to the President, Shane McMahon. As it was stated last week, due to the fact that The Mamalukes beat the WCW World Tag Team Champions, Kronik for two weeks in a row, they will be getting the title shot at Kronik and not Totally Buff or the Natural Born Thrillers. However, due to the fact that the Natural Born Thrillers and Totally Buff are the next in line for a shot at the belts, it was announced that they would do battle at Bash At The Beach where the winners will be granted a title shot at whomever the Tag Team Champions are at the end of the night.

    Just a few nights ago on Thunder, Rick Steiner earned himself a shot at the United States Heavyweight Title by beating Dustin Rhodes, however during the US Title match between he and Bill DeMott, Dustin Rhodes came down to ringside and caused Rick Steiner to lose focus on DeMott, allowing DeMott to quickly pin Steiner and retain the title. Both Rick and Scott Steiner have stated to be highly upset, and not in those words, at Dustin Rhodes and they have said they will have something to say about the situation tomorrow night on Nitro.

    New Cruiserweight Tag Team Champions 3 Count have seemed to found their niche finally after being able to capture the Cruiserweight Tag Team Titles from the Filthy Animals and have since beaten them in their rematch. But things aren’t over for either team. No rematch has been signed for the Pay Per View, however Evan Karagias and Konnan, founder and friend of both Rey Mysterio and Billy Kidman will be in the ring tomorrow night, but they will have some company with two other young up and coming stars, Kash and AJ Styles.

    Since debuting in WCW, the Holly Cousins, specifically Bob ‘Hardcore’ Holly has had is eyes set on the Hardcore Champion, Tommy Dreamer. In their debut match, the Holly Cousins managed to defeat Terry Funk and Tommy Dreamer, and then at the request of Terry Funk, he demanded a match from Shane McMahon against Bob Holly, but it was Holly that defeated Terry Funk on Thunder. What lies in store for Tommy Dreamer tomorrow night on Nitro?

    In recent weeks, Chavo Guerrero has hired the services of Yuji Nagata, stating that if any cruiserweight in the locker room wants a shot at the Cruiserweight Championship, that they would have to beat Yuji Nagata in order to do so. Last week it was Ultimo Dragon, a former two time Cruiserweight Champion who answered and won the challenge. Tomorrow night it will in fact be Chavo Guerrero taking on Ultimo Dragon and the Cruiserweight Title will be on the line.

    Things are heating up between both Jeff Jarrett and Booker T as of late. Since Jarrett has chosen Booker T to be his next opponent on his quest to becoming the ‘Chosen One’ yet again, he’s slightly been ducking Booker T at all costs. They were supposed to have a mach, the contract was signed by Jarrett, but Jarrett put down another name instead, that of one Don Harris of the Harris Brothers. It was stated that Jeff Jarrett hired the Harris Brothers to soften Booker T up, and thus far, though they have softened him up a bit, it was Booker T that has walked out with a victory over Don Harris both in singles competition, and two weeks ago in a six man tag match on Thunder. Both Jarrett and Booker T are scheduled to face one another at Bash At The Beach, but as for tomorrow night, nothing is sure as to whether or not these two will be meeting.

    And will Goldberg be on hand tomorrow night? It was recently that Malice ‘Choke Slammed’ Goldberg through a table that put him out of action for a week. However it was on Thunder recently that Goldberg showed up during the Television Title match between Diamond Dallas Page and champion, Mike Awesome, that his presence was felt and that he hasn’t given up yet on taking care of the Hart Family, especially Jimmy Hart. Will Goldberg take care of the Hart Family tomorrow night?

    Live From The MGM Studios in Orlando, Florida

    The camera fades outside the MGM Studios in Orlando, Florida as fireworks start going off above the ring. The camera pans around the fans at ringside for a moment before fading over to the broadcast table where Tony Schiavone and Mike Tenay are standing by


    Tony Schiavone: WELCOME EVERYONE TO MGM STUDIOS IN ORLANDO, FLORIDA! WELCOME TO MONDAY NITRO! Hello I’m Tony Schiavone alongside with Mike Tenay. Mike, good to be back at the MGM Studios here in Orlando.

    Mike Tenay: Good to be back, indeed Tony. And what a move by President, Shane McMahon to have both Nitro and Thunder here at the MGM Studios back to back as we head into Daytona Beach, for Bash At The Beach.

    Tony Schiavone: And what an event that’s shaping up to be. And tonight, I have been told that Shane McMahon, the ‘Franchise’ Shane Douglas and Ric Flair will be in the ring later on tonight to sign a contract of some sort.

    Mike Tenay: Well the match has already been signed so I’m not sure what Shane McMahon has up his sleeve. It’s certainly going to interesting to find out.

    Tony Schiavone: And as always fans, WCW Monday Nitro plans on delivering to you fans two big hours of non stop excitement. Tell us what’s on tap tonight, Mike.

    Mike Tenay: Well for one, the only title we have on the line tonight. The Cruiserweight Title will be defended by Chavo Guerrero tonight against Ultimo Dragon. Dragon earned himself a title shot after beating Yuji Nagata. Chavo has himself some competition finally.

    Tony Schiavone: Indeed he does. Also fans tonight you’ll see the Steiner Brothers, as much as you don’t want to but they apparently have got some words for Dustin Rhodes due to the fact that Rick Steiner lost his chance to gain the United State Championship.

    Mike Tenay: Well Dustin Rhodes came to ringside during the title match against Bill DeMott causing Steiner to lose focus and allowing Bill DeMott to get the victory.

    Tony Schiavone: True. His fault that he lost focus on the match. Dustin Rhodes did not interfere. He did not distract the referee. He just came out to observe the match more or less.

    Mike Tenay: Well regardless, the Steiner Brothers have their issues with it. So we’ll be hearing what they’ve got to say regardless if we want to or not. Also in action, Johnny The Bull takes on Brian Adams, certainly whoever wins that match will give their team the edge leading into their title match at Bash At The Beach. Shawn Stasiak and Mark Jindrak team up to take on Team America. Jamie Noble faces off with Mike Sanders. And in what should be an interesting match, Konnan, AJ Styles, Evan Karagias and Kash will face off in a fatal 4 way.

I think that if Clarke didn’t jump on the apron at that particular time, Johnny The Bull may have won this thing here tonight.

    Tony Schiavone: He just may have, however it stands right now your winner is Brian Adams, giving Kronik the edge going into Bash At The Beach. More action in a moment fans, don’t go away!

    The fans boo as Jarrett starts walking around


    Jeff Jarrett: No, no, no… See what’s gonna happen. Is I’m walking into Daytona Beach with one thing in mind, and that’s beating Booker T in the middle of this ring. Continuing my quest to get back on top of the mountain as the ‘Chosen One’ of WCW, and after I beat him Sunday night, it’s only a matter of time before I get the WCW World Heavyweight Title back around my waist. And I don’t give a damn who has it, Shane Douglas, Ric Flair, it doesn’t matter because I’m the ‘Chosen One’ and all of you can choke on it!

    ~DON’T HATE THE PLAYA…. HATE THE GAME~


    The fans start to cheer as “Rap Sheet” hits and Booker T walks out on stage with a microphone in hand smiling. Jeff Jarrett stays in the ring looking ready for a fight as the music fades


    Booker T: Yo dog… You need to chill for a minute. Now let’s get one thing straight. You been goin on about how you gon beat me Sunday night. You said the same thing last week right before I laid you out in the middle of that ring. Now can you dig that?

    The fans cheer as Jarrett looks on


    Jeff Jarrett: You know something Booker T, even the sun shines on a dogs ass every once in a while. So yeah, you may have laid me out last week. But did ya beat me? Hell no ya didn’t. But speaking of last week, I’m a little pissed off at that… So listen here ‘Slappy.’ Why don’t you bring your ass down here, and we can finish what we started.

    The fans cheer as Booker T looks on


    Booker T: Let me think about that for a second…

    A video plays of Booker T getting attacked by the Harris Brothers and Jeff Jarrett, showing him getting the ‘H-Bomb’ and Jeff Jarrett’s message after



    Tony Schiavone: I think it’s safe to say that at Bash At The Beach, those two are going to try and tear each others heads off.

    Mike Tenay: I think you may be right but I also think Booker T is going to have his hands full not just with Jeff Jarrett, but the Harris Brothers as well.

    Tony Schiavone: You’re right about that. Alright fans, it was a week ago that Ultimo Dragon was able to defeat Yuji Nagata, and thus earned him a shot at the Cruiserweight Title. Let’s take you to David Penzer!

    “Dragon” starts up and the fans cheer as Ultimo Dragon walks out on stage and stops at the top of the entrance ramp and folds his arms and looks at the fans

Chavo takes a moment to talk trash to the fans and now starts climbing back in the ring but Dragon leaps off the ropes and connects with a dropkick on Chavo! (Cheers!) Chavo get to his feet and Dragon leaps to the outside but Chavo moves away but Dragon lands on the apron! Chavo runs up but Dragon kicks him in the head! Chavo stumbles back, ‘ASAI MOONSAULT’ BY DRAGON CONNECTS! (Cheers!) Dragon picks Chavo up and tosses him in the ring. Dragon climbs in and Chavo gets to his knees and Dragon kicks him hard in the chest! Dragon covers, 1…2, Chavo kicks out. Dragon picks him up and takes him to the corner and gives him a few chops. Dragon sends him to the far side and now Dragon runs up and hits a handspring back elbow but Chavo moved from the corner! Dragon hits the corner hard and now Chavo wraps Dragon up and locks in the ‘Gory Special!’

    Tony Schiavone: AND LOOK AT THIS!

    Mike Tenay: That’s the ‘Gory Special’ made famous by his grandfather Gory Guerrero!

    Tony Schiavone: And he’s got it locked in!

    Chavo continues to tighten the hold but now releases him. Guerrero stomps him a few times and now picks Dragon up and chops him a few times and shoots him to the corner. Chavo runs up and Dragon lifts up and kicks him in the head! Dragon runs up but Guerrero hits him with a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker! Chavo with the cover, 1…2… Dragon kicks out! Chavo starts complaining to the ref and now Guerrero picks Dragon up and body slams him. Guerrero goes to the outside and climbs up the turnbuckle. Chavo perches himself up but Dragon gets to his feet and crotches him! Dragon goes to the outside and climbs up and looks to the fans, ‘DRAGONSTEINER’ OFF THE TURNBUCKLE! Dragon makes the cover, 1…2…3 NO! CHAVO GETS THE SHOULDER UP! Suddenly from the entrance ramp Sonny Onoo starts running down to ringside! Onoo goes over to the timekeepers table and grabs the Cruiserweight Title and slides it in the ring and jumps on the apron and starts distracting the referee. Chavo grabs the title belt and now Dragon goes over and kicks Sonny Onoo off the apron! Dragon turns around and Chavo tosses him the belt and falls down holding his head. The ref look and sees Dragon with the belt and calls for the bell!
    Winner and STILL Cruiserweight Champion: Chavo Guerrero via DQ
    Tony Schiavone: YOU’VE GOTTA BE KIDDING ME!

    Mike Tenay: Chavo acting like Dragon hit him with the belt causes the ref to give him the DQ victory! He stole the match from Dragon!

    Tony Schiavone: And personally I think that Shane McMahon needs to say something about that but regardless, Chavo Guerrero steals this one from Ultimo Dragon. Right now fans let’s take you to ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund standing by the entrance. Take it away, Gene.

    Interview


    The camera fades to ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund standing by the entrance


    Gene Okerlund: Alright, thank you Tony. Ladies and gentlemen… Believe me usually I’m about to say that it gives me pleasure… But quite honestly I’m not going to be looking forwards to this but if I don’t get through with it, I could be out of a job. So please bare with me here, as I introduce my guests at this time… The Cruiserweight Tag Team Champions… 3 COUNT!

    ~EVERYBODY THREE COUNT, ONE…. TWO… THREEEEE~


    “Dance With 3 Count” starts up and the fans boo as 3 Count walk out carrying the Cruiserweight Tag Team Titles around their shoulders. They make their way over to Gene Okerlund and look on at the fans as the music fades


    Gene Okerlund: Alright gentlemen, please let’s get this over with quickly because you Evan Karagias are about to involve yourself in a Fatal 4 Way but you both have requested this time, so tell us all please what is on your minds…

    The fans continue to boo as 3 Count look on


    Evan Karagias: You know Gene… First of all we heard you talking before coming out here. How can you say that you’re not looking forward to interviewing Shannon and I? How can you even say that? We’re the Cruiserweight Tag Team Champions! Ah whatever you’re just jealous… BUT ANYWAY!

    The fans continue to boo


    Evan Karagias: ANYWAY! So yeah, in just a few minutes I’m going to be involved in a fatal 4 way against Kash, AJ Styles… And that Filthy Animal Konnan…

    The fans cheer


    Evan Karagias: I’m gonna be involved in a fatal 4 way… And personally, we don’t think it’s even fair. Since we won these belts, all we’ve done is give WCW more marketability because… WE ARE the hottest things in the locker room. WE HAVE given these titles MORE recognition. And more importantly, we took them off the Filthy Animals. Cuz let’s face it, they just weren’t hacking it.

    Gene Okerlund: Surely you can’t be serious.

    Shannon Moore: He IS serious…

    Evan Karagias: And please… It’s Evan, not Shirley… But no I am serious, Gene. Have you seen the ratings when the Animals were the champions? Wow, they were in the toilet! But since Shannon and I won… I am PROUD to say that the ratings have gone up. And now that we’ve requested this time… Shannon and I are FINALLY going to debut our NEW hit single ‘We Are The Champions’ FOR ALL OF YOU PEOPLE HERE TONIGHT!

    The fans boo as 3 Count start getting into position to sing


    Evan Karagias: Alright is everybody-

    Gene Okerlund: Whoa, whoa, whoa, I’m sorry to interrupt but I’m being told that we have to go to a commercial br-

    Evan Karagias: WHAT! WAIT A MINUTE!

    Gene Okerlund: STICK AROUND FANS, THE FATAL 4 WAY IS NEXT!

    3 Count start complaining as the camera starts to fade out



    (COMMERCIAL)



    The camera fades back as Evan Karagias, Kash, and AJ Styles are in the ring getting ready


    ~FILTHY, DIRTY, NASTY~


    “Filthy, Dirty, Nasty” starts up and the fans cheer as Konnan walks out jumping up and down and pulling his pants before throwing up the ‘Wolfpac’ taunt


    David Penzer: And their opponent… From Mexico City, New Mexico… KOOOOONNAAAAAAAN!

    Konnan heads down the aisle and climbs inside the ring and goes right after Evan Karagias who slips out of the ring quickly. Konnan leans on the ropes pointing to 3 Count as the music fades


    Evan Karagias vs. AJ Styles vs. Kash vs. Konnan


    The bell rings and Konnan stays in the ring with AJ Styles. Konnan and Styles lock up and Konnan goes behind Styles and wraps him up from behind but Styles drops down and whips him over. Konnan runs up and Styles trips him and covers, 1, Konnan kicks out. AJ back to his feet goes after Konnan and Konnan trip him up and makes the cover, 1, Styles kicks out and both get to their feet and are at a standoff. Konnan and Styles lock up again and now Konnan takes Styles to the corner and Kash tags himself into the match. Kash jumps in and nails Konnan with a few kicks and shoots him to the ropes and Karagias tags Konnan with a blind tag. Konnan rebounds and Kash connects with a dropkick. Kash back to his feet but Karagias levels him with a clothesline! Karagias covers, 1…2, Kash kicks out. Karagias picks Kash up and nails him with a few right hands and shoots him to the ropes. Kash rebounds and ducks a clothesline. Karagias turns around and Kash leaps up and catches Karagias with a hurricanrana! Karagias slides to the outside and starts conversing with Shannon Moore but now Konnan runs up and starts brawling with both of them! (Cheers!) In the ring Kash and Styles start slugging it out and Styles shoots Kash to the ropes but Kash reverses. Styles rebounds and ducks a clothesline from Kash AND HITS A NO HANDS SOMERSAULT PLANCHA ON KONNAN AND 3 COUNT! (Cheers!) Kash is left in the ring and now Kash waits for a few seconds but now walks up to the ropes as everyone gets to their feet, Kash leaps up, SPRINGBOARD SOMERSAULT PLANCHA ON EVERYONE! (Holy Shit! Holy Shit!)

    Tony Schiavone: AND IT LOOKS LIKE A CAR WRECK ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING!

    Mike Tenay: Did you see the height that Kash got off that springboard?

    Tony Schiavone: Almost resembles what Rey Mysterio did last week!

    Kash gets back to his feet and grabs Karagias and slides him in the ring. Kash climbs on the apron and up the turnbuckle as Karagias gets to his feet and Kash hits a missile dropkick! Kash makes the cover, 1…2, Karagias kicks out. Kash picks Karagias up and takes him to the corner and stomps him a few times and now picks him up and sits him on the turnbuckle. Kash climbs up with Karagias and now Karagias starts fighting him off and manages to push him off. Kash lands on the canvas and runs up and Karagias kicks him in the face! Kash stumbles out of the corner and Karagias leaps off and connects with a crossbody! The cover, 1…2, Kash kicks out. Karagias gets to his feet and slaps Konnan tagging him in the match. Karagias goes to exit the ring and Konnan runs up and clubs him from behind. Konnan starts talking trash to Karagias on the outside but Kash rolls him up, 1…2, Konnan kicks out. Kash and Konnan get to their feet and Kash nails him with a few right hands and shoots him to the ropes but Konnan reverses. Kash rebounds and Konnan hits a rolling lariat! Konnan screams ‘Horale’ to the delight of the fans and now goes and stomps Kash a few times and picks him up and nails him with a few right hands and shoots him to the ropes. Kash bounces off and Konnan kicks him in the gut, turns around and gives him a facebuster! Konnan makes the cover, 1…2, Karagias breaks the pin! Karagias quickly goes back out on the apron and now Konnan goes over and tags in AJ Styles, AND NOW KONNAN GOES AFTER KARAGIAS!

    Tony Schiavone: I think its safe to say that Konnan really doesn’t care about the match, he just wants to go after 3 Count!

    Mike Tenay: And that’s exactly what’s going on, THEY’VE LEFT THE RING!

    Konnan chases 3 Count away from the ring leaving Styles and Kash left. Styles nails Kash with a few right hands and shoots him to the ropes. Kash bounces off and Styles nails him with a big dropkick and makes the cover, 1…2, Kash kicks out. Styles picks Kash up shoots him to the corner and Kash hits hard. Styles runs up and Kash lifts him up and over the rope but Styles lands on the apron. Kash turns around and Styles nails him with a forearm and starts climbing up the turnbuckle but Kash runs up the turnbuckle AND HITS A SUPER ARM DRAG OFF THE TOP! (Cheers!) Styles and Kash are down but now start getting back to their feet. Kash and Styles trade right hands but now Kash blocks a right hand and nails Styles with a few right hands and shoots him to the ropes. Styles rebounds and Kash hits him with a spinning heel kick! Kash covers, 1…2… Styles kicks out. Kash picks Styles up and sets him up for a suplex but Styles squirms around and lands behind him and wraps him up. Kash elbows him a few times and now goes behind Styles and wraps him up from behind but now leaps on his shoulders, spins around and goes for a hurricanrana but Styles holds on and sets him up, ‘STYLES CLASH’ CONNECTS, 1…2…3!
    Winner: AJ Styles via ‘Styles Clash’
    Tony Schiavone: And AJ Styles wins it!

    Mike Tenay: Well after Karagias tagged in Konnan, Konnan went ahead and tagged in AJ Styles and then proceeded to go after the Cruiserweight Tag Team Champions, leaving the ring and all and all just forgetting about the match leaving Styles and Kash. And that man AJ Styles countered a hurricanrana attempt and hit his signature move the ‘Styles Clash’ for the victory!

    Tony Schiavone: What a win that was for AJ Styles. Stay tuned fans, we’ve got more action coming your way!


    (COMMERCIAL)



    The camera fades back to the announcers table


    Tony Schiavone: Welcome back fans. What a night its been here on Nitro and we’re not through yet. Right now, let’s take you to ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund standing in the ring!

    In Ring Segment


    The camera fades down to the ring with ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund standing by


    Gene Okerlund: Thanks, Tony. And again, not really thrilled about my guests at this time. But regardless. Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome, ‘Big Poppa Pump’ and Rick Steiner, the STEINER BROTHERS!

    ~HOLLER…. IF YA HEAR ME~


    “Big Poppa Pump” starts up and the fans boo as Scott Steiner walks out on stage shaking his arms and looking at the fans with Midajah and Rick Steiner following. The Steiner Brothers and Midajah head down the aisle and climb inside the ring. Scott Steiner takes a moment to flex as the music fades


    Gene Okerlund: Scott Steiner you-

    Scott Steiner snatches the microphone from ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund and stares him down


    Scott Steiner: Two things little man… Number one. Shut your mouth! Number two. Get the hell out of here cuz this doesn’t concern you. LEAVE!

    The fans boo as ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund throws his hands in the air and exits the ring and starts leaving the ringside area


    Scott Steiner: Me and my brother got a problem. And that problem has been a problem for the last couple of weeks. I’m talking about that redneck Dustin Rhodes!

    The fans cheer at the sound of Rhodes’ name


    Scott Steiner: SHUT THE HELL UP!

    The fans continue to boo and start up a ‘Dustin’ chant


    Scott Steiner: Yeah, go ahead and chant his name. See the fact of the matter is this Dustin Rhodes. Last week you came out here, interrupted my brothers match, costing him the United States Title. I don’t know HOW MANY TIMES me and my brother have to beat your ass for you to understand that not even on our WORSE DAY you could ever beat us. Ya see Dustin Rhodes, we’ve already put your father in the hospital. We beat his fat ass so bad it’s been in the hospital for WEEKS! Now we were gonna let you off easy. We were just gonna beat you up and make you understand that we’re always gonna be better than you. But just like a typical redneck, you’re too STUPID to understand that. So now Dustin Rhodes, you’re leaving us no choice. The NEXT TIME you get in the ring with either one of us, we’re just gonna send you to your old man so you BOTH can share a hospital bed.

    The fans continue to boo


    ~WELL THEY CALL HIM THE NATURAL~


    Tony Schiavone: Well I don’t know how smart this is for Dustin Rhodes… If you can say anything about the man other than being a caring and compassionate son, and a hell of an athlete, the man has heart.

    “Natural” starts up and the fans cheer as Dustin Rhodes walks out with a microphone in hand. The Steiner Brothers start talking trash from the ring as Dustin stands at the entrance way till the music fades


    Dustin Rhodes: Let’s cut right to the chase. Yeah, you two beat up my dad. Yeah you’ve beaten me more times than I’d like to count. And now you two want to beat me up again only this time you want to put me in a hospital bed next to my father… Alright, so I guess the only question is… When? WHEN would you two like to challenge me? Wait, I’ve got an idea. How about Bash At The Beach? Me and a partner, against you two.

    The fans cheer as the Steiner’s look on


    Scott Steiner: See Rhodes, this just proves my point about you rednecks, YOU ARE as stupid as you look! You want the Steiner Brothers at Bash At The Beach? DONE! You got us. You want a partner? DONE! Go ahead and get a partner. Who you gonna bring? That clown Sting? Hey, you beat us once and don’t think we haven’t forgotten about that. We’ll make sure we’ll kick his ass too.

    Dustin Rhodes: It’s not Sting.

    Scott Steiner: Not Sting? Well if it ain’t Sting, we know it’s not Booker T, he’s already got a match with Jarrett… So it ain’t them two, who is it, Nash? That big idiot. We’ll kick his ass too!

    Dustin Rhodes: It’s not Nash either.

    Scott Steiner: What about that Jersey Shore idiot Diamond Dallas Page?

    Dustin Rhodes: It’s not Page either.

    Scott Steiner: Well hell boy it looks like you’re running out of friends to choose from ain’t ya?

    Dustin Rhodes: Hey, I’ll tell ya what, my partner is actually here tonight. If you REALLY wanna know who he is then how about I bring him out now and we can get Bash At The Beach started?

    The fans cheer as the Steiner Brothers look on. Scott Steiner smirks for a second and shakes his head


    Scott Steiner: Alright. I’ll bite. Let’s see who your chump of a partner is…

    Dustin Rhodes: You want him… You got him.

    Tony Schiavone: Who is it?

    ~HE’S THE AMERRRRRRRICAN DREEEEEEEAM~


    Tony Schiavone: IT CAN’T BE!

    “American Dream” starts up and the fans cheer as Dusty Rhodes walks out through the curtain carrying two baseball bats


    Mike Tenay: IT IS! IT’S DUSTY RHODES! AND THEY’VE BROUGHT SOME FRIENDS!

    The Steiner Brothers are shocked as Dusty and Dustin Rhodes rush down to the ring both now carrying baseball bats! They slide in the ring and the Steiner Brothers start attacking but the Rhodes’ start fighting back, jabbing them and nailing them both with the baseball bats! Dustin decks Rick Steiner in the head and Rick Steiner goes down and slides to the outside. Dusty jabs Scott Steiner in the gut and then swings and nails him in the back! Scott Steiner ducks out of the ring and now Rick Steiner grabs his brother and the two start walking back up the entrance ramp.

    Shane McMahon: Excuse me… I said, Shane Douglas… Not the Triple Threat. So gentlemen… And woman… Please leave my ring now.

    The fans cheer as the Triple Threat start to argue with Shane McMahon. After a few seconds they finally agree and leave the ring as Shane Douglas grabs a microphone

    Thunder Preview


    We are now just a few short days away from Bash At The Beach and tensions are really high with what has happened in the few weeks along with what transpired on Nitro. With one show left before the Pay Per View, anything can happen.

    Last week, Ultimo Dragon overcame the odds and managed to defeat Yuji Nagata for a shot at the Cruiserweight Title which he cashed in his opportunity on Nitro. However Chavo Guerrero with a bit of help from his business associate Sonny Onoo manage to steal the match and the title away from Dragons grasp as he acted as if Dragon had hit him with the title belt. Word is that Chavo Guerrero will be at Thunder this week, but in what capacity? And furthermore, will Ultimo Dragon even be there.

    Last week in the Main Event on Thunder, Mike Awesome defeated Diamond Dallas Page to hang onto the Television Title but things didn’t end there. Goldberg hit the ring and ‘Speared’ Awesome and followed it up with a big ‘Jackhammer’ From there the Hart Family swarmed the ring but Diamond Dallas Page stood his ground with Goldberg with chairs in hand as they begged for the Hart Family to get in the ring. Jimmy Hart retreated his troops however but rumor has it that Mike Awesome was very unhappy with what transpired after his match and as of now he will be at Thunder tomorrow night with some words for Goldberg. Goldberg is not scheduled to appear, but anything can happen.

    Things have heated up between the Filthy Animals and 3 Count since 3 Count are the newly crowned Cruiserweight Tag Team Champions. They manage to beat the Filthy Animals for the belts, and again in their rematch. Since then 3 Count have egged the Animals on and most recently Konnan and Evan Karagias were involved in a Fatal 4 Way on Nitro that ended up being a one on one between AJ Styles and Kash after Konnan pretty much forfeited the match and went after Evan Karagias and Shannon Moore. Tomorrow night, due to what had happened on Nitro, Konnan will take on Shannon Moore in singles competition.

    Dustin Rhodes after being talked down to by the Steiner Brothers came out on Nitro and challenged the Steiner Brothers to a match at the Pay Per View, when asked about who his partner would be, he introduced him to the Steiner’s, a returning ‘American Dream’ Dusty Rhodes. The Rhodes family wielding baseball bats took to the ring and caused the Steiner Brothers to flee much to the delight of the fans. So it will be the Steiner Brothers against the Rhodes family this Sunday night. But what will happen tomorrow night?

    Jeff Jarrett and Booker T continue to be crossed with each other. It was last week that Jeff Jarrett and Booker T got into a confrontation that resulted in Booker T dodging a guitar shot from Jarrett, only to give him a ‘Book End’ moments later. This week however on Nitro, Jarrett provoked Booker T to a fight, but once Booker started gunning toward the ring, Jarrett’s hired thugs the Harris Brothers stepped in and began a 3 on 1 onslaught. After an ‘H-Bomb’ that left Booker down and out, Jarrett swore that it would be the same outcome on Sunday. Booker T has stated he will NOT be appearing on Thunder this week so that he can rest up his wounds suffered from Monday night, but as we all know Jarrett, he will more than likely have something to say.

    And in a twist of events, this Sunday night the World Heavyweight Championship will be defended. Ric Flair will square off again with Shane Douglas, title on the line, but thanks to the contract signing, Shane Douglas has to do things on his own as does Ric Flair. As the contract became legal and binding from the twos signatures, absolutely no one is to interfere on either’s behalf or they and the ones who interfered will be suspended, and whomever the champion is will be stripped of the title. As it’s stated right now, Shane McMahon has given both Douglas and Flair the night off tomorrow so that they may train for the big match Sunday.

    Live From The MGM Studios in Orlando, Florida


    The camera fades outside the MGM Studios in Orlando, Florida where fireworks start going off and the fans are cheering. The camera pans around the fans packed around ringside and the surrounding areas until finally stopping at the announcers table where Tony Schiavone and Mike Tenay are standing by


    Tony Schiavone: With just THREE DAYS AWAY from the biggest Pay Per View of the Summer, WE ARE LIVE at the MGM Studios, THIS IS THUNDER! Hello fans I’m Tony Schiavone alongside with Mike Tenay. And With three days away from Bash At The Beach, Mike things are running high for WCW.

    Mike Tenay: Tonight is the night where some get to have their final words and final matches before going into the Pay Per View, we know some will not be here tonight, specifically Ric Flair and Shane Douglas.

    Tony Schiavone: For those of you who missed it. It was on Nitro just a few days ago that Shane Douglas and Ric Flair signed the contract going into this World Heavyweight Championship match unbeknownst to Shane Douglas, that if ANY of his Triple Threat should interfere in the Main Event at Bash At The Beach or anyone else for that matter, not only will they be suspended, but also he would be suspended, and the World Title would be stripped off him if he were to win it. He’s on his own.

    Mike Tenay: And the same goes for Ric Flair, not that anyone would get involved on his behalf. But the same stipulation goes for Ric Flair as well. They’ll have to win on their own if they’re to come out as World Heavyweight Champion.

    Tony Schiavone: Also on Nitro, we witnessed the return, that’s right, the return of the ‘American Dream’ Dusty Rhodes. It was a little over a month or so that Dusty Rhodes was brutally attacked by the Steiner Brothers, he’s been lying in a hospital bed for weeks. He made his return the other night on Nitro beside his son the ‘Natural’ Dustin Rhodes, not only attacked the Steiner Brothers, but they have set up a match. This Sunday it will be the Steiner Brothers taking on Dustin and Dusty Rhodes, what a match that’s gonna be.

    Mike Tenay: A big welcome back to Dusty, and they will be here tonight as well.

    Tony Schiavone: I can’t wait to here what he has to say. But right now ladies and gentlemen, let’s kick Thunder off, and go to David Penzer for our opening contest!

    Tony Schiavone: And already Papi Chulo showing off some impressive aerial ability and takes out Psychosis with a springboard missile dropkick, not enough to finish him off however.

    Mike Tenay: And I want to point out Tony that Psychosis has not been the same since losing the mask he’s treasured so much over the years. He’s got a whole new aura about him. Kind of a mean streak if you will.

    Chulo picks Psychosis up and gives him a few chops and puts him in the corner. Chulo kicks him and couple times and now sets him up top. Chulo climbs up with Psychosis but Psychosis starts punching him and now tosses him off the turnbuckle to the outside and Chulo lands hard onto the guardrail! (Oh!)

    Tony Schiavone: And a beautiful counter by Psychosis but Chulo still has fight left in him!

    Mike Tenay: That’s the mean streak I was talking about earlier. He threw Chulo down with such force, we’re not used to seeing that from Psychosis.

    Psychosis picks Chulo up and chops him a few times and shoots him to the corner. Psychosis comes in and nails him with a big clothesline. Psychosis lifts Chulo up and sits him on the turnbuckle and gives him a hard slap for good measure.

    Tony Schiavone: Your winner is Psychosis, right now let’s go to our first commercial break, stay tuned fans, MORE Thunder coming your way on TBS!

    ~THE CHOSEN ONE~


    In Ring Segment


    “Cowboy (Instrumental) by Kid Rock starts up and the fans boo as Jeff Jarrett walks out holding his guitar in the air


    Tony Schiavone: Well we knew more than likely he’d show up tonight.

    Mike Tenay: And thanks to his henchman the Harris Brothers, Booker T is sitting at home nursing up his injuries he sustained on Nitro.

    Jarrett heads down the aisle and climbs inside the ring grabbing a microphone from David Penzer. Jarrett goes over to the ropes and holds his guitar up again. The music fades and Jarrett begins to speak


    Jeff Jarrett: Well, well, well… If you Florida ‘Slap Asses’ think that you’re gonna see Booker T come out here tonight and interrupt what I gotta say, you can all think again. Because after what happened on Nitro, Booker T is sitting at home in Harlem, in his broke down apartment on 110th Street. And I know he’s watching so I’m just gonna say this… Hey Booker, I hope you heal up for Sunday. It’s not gonna matter though, cuz the way I left you laying in this ring Monday night, is EXACTLY how I’m gonna leave you when I leave this ring Sunday night in Daytona Beach!

    The fans boo as Jarrett walks around the ring for a second


    Mike Tenay: Wasn’t even him that laid Booker T out.

    Tony Schiavone: Of course he takes the credit.

    Jeff Jarrett: So since Booker T ain’t here tonight and I’m feeling good about myself knowing that I’m gonna kick his ass Sunday night. I want me a warm up match. That’s right. Here and now, on my quest to once again be the ‘Chosen One’ I’M issuing the open challenge to anyone in the back, to come out here tonight, and face me in this ring.

    Tony Schiavone: Is he serious?

    Mike Tenay: Well we just heard it.

    Jeff Jarrett: Hey, I can’t wait all day. Come on, I know SOMEBODY in the back wants to go one on one with the ‘Chosen One.’ I’m giving ANYBODY in the back an opportunity to come out, and face me in this ring tonight! OPEN CHALLENGE! If ANYBODY back there wants to try and make a name for yourself or just get your 15 minutes of fame with being in the ring with me, come on down.

    Jarrett walks around the ring for a second


    ~DISCO FEVER! DISCO FEVER! YEAH, YEAH, YEAH, YEAH~


    Tony Schiavone: Oh good lord.

    “Disco Fever” starts up and the fans boo as Disco Inferno walks out and starts dancing while Jarrett stands inside the ring looking puzzled as if he has no idea why he’s coming down to the ring. Disco heads down the aisle and climbs inside the ring AND JARRETT BLASTS HIM WITH THE GUITAR!


    Tony Schiavone: Well seeya later Disco.

    Mike Tenay: Well that’s a first, Jarrett wants a match and he’s already destroyed the only guitar he’s got… So we know of.

    Jeff Jarrett: You know something let me go ahead and rephrase what I said… I’m challenging ANYBODY in the back, THAT’S ACTUALLY WORTH A DAMN!

    The fans boo as Jarrett starts to kick Disco Inferno out of the ring


    ~SEEK AND DESTROY~


    Tony Schiavone: OH MY!

    Mike Tenay: WELL HERE’S SOMEBODY WITH SOME CREDIBILITY!

    Tony Schiavone: YOU AIN’T KIDDING!

    “Seek And Destroy” by Metallica starts up and the fans cheer as Sting walks out with a microphone. Jarrett seems a bit worried in the ring as Sting smiles from the entrance way looking on. The fans start a ‘Sting’ chant as the music fades


    Sting: DID I HEAR YOU SAY YOU WANT A CHALLENGE FROM SOMEONE WHO’S WORTH A DAMN?!

    The fans cheer as Jarrett holds his hand up asking Sting to wait a second. Jarrett tries to talk but Sting cuts him off


    Sting: Whoa, whoa, whoa, you ain’t talking your way out of this one Jarrett… YOU WANT A MATCH! YOU GOT ONE! IIIIIIIIIT’S SHOWTIME FOLKS!

    Stings music hits and Sting points at Jarrett who is now talking trash to Sting inside the ring


    Tony Schiavone: I think we’ve got a match for later! It’s gonna be Jarrett against Sting LIVE tonight on Thunder! And we gotta take a commercial break, don’t go away!


    (COMMERCIAL)



    The camera fades back on Thunder


    Tony Schiavone: And we’re back fans and for those of you that are just joining us. Moments ago Jeff Jarrett issued an open challenge to anybody in the back, which was answered by Disco Inferno… Well a guitar shot later, Jarrett issued another talent to anybody with credibility. The man they call Sting answered that challenge, and tonight in the Main Event we will see those two collide.

    Mike Tenay: And its interesting enough that a few months ago, Jeff Jarrett and Sting were waged in a war that Jarrett had pretty much won. In fact, he chose Sting as his first opponent when he went back on this quest to become the ‘Chosen One’ again.

    Tony Schiavone: Well it looks like Sting is looking for a little payback. But right now, let’s go back to the ring for more action here on Thunder!

    Chavo Guerrero: *Startled* Uh, well I uh…

    Shane McMahon: *Laughs* Hey, relax. It’s okay. I know you’re not booked in a match tonight and I wasn’t planning on putting you in a match tonight so go ahead and take a load off. In fact, I might have a few of those later tonight if ya know what I mean.

    Chavo Guerrero: Oh wow, hey ese you scared the crap outta me, man. But thank you, and hey if you want, you can come out with me tonight. I know this great club down the road, lots of Margaritas and senoritas if ya know what I mean.

    Shane McMahon: Eh, thanks but I think I’ll pass, Margaritas aren’t really my thing… Say listen while I got you here there is something I wanted to talk to you about. What happened on Nitro with you and Ultimo Dragon?

    Chavo Guerrero: W-what do you mean?

    Shane McMahon: Chavo… Come on man I saw what happened, I’m no fool. That was a clever little trick you pulled having the ref think Dragon hit you with the belt. I actually enjoyed it. No, really I did. In fact, I enjoyed it so much… That I’m gonna go ahead and book you two in a rematch this Sunday at Bash At The Beach. And don’t worry, Dragon doesn’t need to go through Nagata to get the shot. I’ll go ahead and vouch that he’s a worthy contender…

    McMahon starts to walk off and Chavo starts to silently bad mouth him but then suddenly stops as Shane walk back


    Shane McMahon: Oh and one more thing… As much as I enjoyed that trick… If you pull it again at the Pay Per View, you wont have to worry about defending that belt, cuz you’ll be stripped of it. Okay? Enjoy the rest of the night…

    The camera fades back on Thunder


    Tony Schiavone: Alright fans welcome back and right now its been a while since we’ve seen him, its good to have him back, let’s take you to Scott Hudson who’s standing by with Tommy Dreamer. Scott, take it away.

    Backstage


    The camera fades backstage where Scott Hudson is standing by with Tommy Dreamer carrying the WCW Hardcore Title around his shoulder


    Scott Hudson: Good to be back, Tony and Mike. Tommy Dreamer you’ve only been with the WCW a few short months. Already you’ve manage to become a two time WCW Hardcore Champion but lately things have taken a bad turn for you as there is a man whom everyone knows is no stranger to hardcore, I’m talking of course about Bob ‘Hardcore’ Holly…And apparently he’s got his eyes set on you, or more so, that title around your shoulder.

    Tommy Dreamer: Scott, I don’t know if you’re familiar with my work or not. If you are, great. If you’re not. Let me go ahead and summarize my career up for ya. I’ve been in this business for a good while now. I’ve never backed down from a fight. I’ve never backed down from any man or in some cases, women. I’ve never been afraid to spill my own blood for something that I cherish… Whether that be wrestling, pride, whatever. Anybody wants a piece of Tommy Dreamer, I’m not hard to find. Now Bob Holly, this guy is just as obsessed with me and this belt as Stevie Ray was when I took it off him a little more than a month ago. Hell, he may be more obsessed with me and this belt more than Stevie Ray was. Fact is, he’s attacked me from behind countless times. He’s attacked me and Terry Funk from behind countless times. Just the other week he beat Terry Funk in the middle of the ring, and still, he wants a piece of me. Well Bob Holly, listen up and listen good. You want me? You want my belt? Then lets do it. You and me, this Sunday at the Bash At The Beach. We can fight in the ring. We can fight in the parking lot. Hell we can go into the water and fight a couple sharks if you want, I don’t care. Bottom line, we’re gonna go ahead and get this match over with. I’m gonna give you your shot, and when its all said and done, you may still walk around calling yourself ‘Hardcore’ Holly… But after Sunday night, you’re gonna see why they call me the ‘Innovator Of Violence.’

    Dreamer stares into the camera and walks away


    Scott Hudson: Back to you guys.

    The camera fades back to the announcers table


    Tony Schiavone: Well the challenge has been made. And I’m sure Bob Holly will more than likely be coming to Daytona Beach looking for a big victory over Tommy Dreamer.

    Mike Tenay: Looks like Daytona Beach is going to get hardcore.

    Tony Schiavone: Right now fans, lets take you to ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund. Take it away, Gene.

    In Ring Segment



    The camera fades down to the entrance way where ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund is standing by


    Gene Okerlund: Thanks, Tony and Mike. Ladies and gentlemen, right now I want to welcome two gentlemen that have a big match coming their way this Sunday night… Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome my guest at this time… FATHER AND SON, DUSTY, AND DUSTIN RHODES!

    ~WELL THEY CALL HIM THE NATURAL~


    “The Natural” starts up and the fans cheer as Dustin and Dusty Rhodes walk out with their arms raised. Dusty and Dustin walk over to ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund and shake his hand as the music fades


    Gene Okerlund: First of all, Dusty, it’s good to see you back my friend. Now Dustin Rhodes, it was on Nitro recently that you made the challenge to the Steiner Brothers for this match at Bash At The Beach, tell me what’s been going through your mind.

    Dustin Rhodes: What’s been going through my mind ‘Mean’ Gene is the same thing that was going through my mind since the day those two put my father in the hospital. Revenge. And I’ve won a fight here and there… But it’s no secret, and I’m man enough to admit it, that the Steiner Brothers have proven that they are the toughest team that I have ever come across, and that I’ve lost a lot more than I’ve won. But I know this ‘Mean’ Gene… Come Sunday night, there’s going to be another win coming to the Rhodes family.

    The fans cheer as Dusty and Dustin look on


    Gene Okerlund: ‘American Dream’ how about it. How does it feel to be back. And more so, how does it feel to be stepping back in the ring with your son?

    Dusty Rhodes: I’M GON TELL YA LIKE IT ISSSS ‘MEAN’ GENE OKERLUND! You may remember 15 years ago, maybe more, I don’t know the exact date I said it… But you may remember saying that some certain individuals done put hard times on Dusty Rhodes! They done put harrrrd times on Dusty Rhodes’ family, daddy. Well a month or so ago when Scott and Ricky Steiner beat my ass and laid me up in a hospital bed, they done put some hard times on me. But as I was laying up in that bed recovering and eating the worst food you could ever imagine… I tuned into WCW television and saw that the Steiner Brothers didn’t just put hard times on me… They don’t put some hard times on my son. After weeks and weeks of seeing how they treated my boy I told myself that I was gonna get better, get back to work, and the first thing on my agenda was gonna be the Steiner Brothers. And we bout to go to work on Sunday, daddy!

    The fans cheer


    Dusty Rhodes: Now ya see I mentioned before that I ate some of the worst food you could ever imagine. So by the time I got done with laying up in a hospital bed, and by the time I got out the door of that hospital, I was hungry, if you will. I’m not talking about food though jack. I’m talking about how hungry I m to make sure that the Steiner Brothers get what they got comin to em. AND STEINER BROTHERS… What you got comin to you is a fight. A fight that we, the ‘NATURAL’ AND I! Are gonna win baby… Cuz for months you done put some hard times on us, and on Sunday night in Daytona Beach, Florida… ITS TIME, TO GET FUNKY LIKE A MONKEY! So Steiners be ready cuz we comin for ya!

    Mike Awesome: DON’T YOU WORRY ABOUT THEM LITTLE MAN! Right now you should be worrying about me and what I’ve gotta say.

    Gene Okerlund: Well the time is yours.

    Nash continues to stare at Awesome and then smirks


    Kevin Nash: So… You’re the biggest guy in WCW are ya?

    Nash takes his hand and puts it on the top of his head and then moves it over Awesome’s head, obviously being a few inches higher


    Kevin Nash: Well would ya look at that? Seems like I’ve got a couple inches on ya. But we don’t need to worry about that. You know Mike, you keep running your mouth about how you’re the biggest man in WCW, and I gotta tell ya. I’m getting pretty sick and tired of it. Kinda been sick of it for a minute now. So in case ya don’t know already, I just went to Shane McMahon and told him that I wanted to kinda kick your teeth down your throat Sunday at the Pay Per View. And don’t worry about your precious little title, its not on the line. Nah, this is just gonna be a little matter of respect between you and I. Seeya Sunday big man.

    Nash pats Awesome on the shoulder and walks off as the camera fades back to Tony Schiavone and Mike Tenay


    Tony Schiavone: Well how do you like that?

    Mike Tenay: Looks like we’ve got another match signed for Bash At The Beach.

    Tony Schiavone: You heard it hear fans. Mike Awesome and Kevin Nash will wrestle this Sunday night at Bash At The Beach. Well what a night this has been but we’ve still got one more for ya. Its your Main Event, coming up right now!

Sting goes back over to Jarrett and Jarrett gives him a low blow! (Boos!) Jarrett quickly rolls Sting in an inside cradle, 1…2…3!
    Winner: Jeff Jarrett via pinfall
    Tony Schiavone: JARRETT STEALS THIS ONE!

    Mike Tenay: Always the perfect opportunist and he saw his opening and he took it!

    Tony Schiavone: Of course he didn’t have his guitar, he broke that over the Disco Inferno’s head earlier, so now he has to resort to other tacticts!

    [font=verdana] Aftermath: [size=3] Jarrett slides out of the ring and starts walking up the entrance ramp looking back in the ring at Sting who’s still down in pain.

    Tony Schiavone: That man is in for the fight of his life on Sunday night, and I certainly hope Booker T puts him in his place. And on that note we’re out of time fans, WE’LL SEE YOU THIS SUNDAY FOR BASH AT THE BEACH, GOODNIGHT EVERYBODY!

    The camera fades out with Sting looking up at Jarrett who’s smiling as he heads back to the entrance way

    Bash At The Beach Preview




    Cruiserweight Championship

    Ultimo Dragon vs. Chavo Guerrero ©


    Since capturing the WCW Cruiserweight Title, Chavo Guerrero has taken it upon himself to do whatever it takes to keep the title secure. That being said, he hired the services of Sonny Onoo and his client Yuji Nagata and made it clear to everybody, that if you wanted a shot at the Cruiserweight Title, you’d have to get through Nagata first. Many challenged Nagata, only to have failed. That was up until just a week ago when Ultimo Dragon managed to defeat Nagata and earning himself a title shot in the process. Recently on Nitro, Dragon cashed in his title shot and faced Chavo Guerrero, only for Chavo to escape with a disqualification victory after he tossed Dragon the Cruiserweight Title and acted as though Dragon had hit him over the head with it. It was then on Thunder that Shane McMahon confronted Chavo Guerrero about what had happened on Nitro to which he later told him that there would be a rematch between the two at Bash At The Beach.



    Totally Buff vs. Natural Born Thrillers


    The feud between Totally Buff and the Natural Born Thrillers rages on as these two will meet once again at Bash At The Beach to determine the number one contenders to the WCW Tag Team Titles. For the last few weeks the two teams have fought, the Thrillers having most of the battles won. Recently Totally Buff managed to score a few victories over the Thrillers, prompting them to demand a title shot from Shane McMahon, however due to McMahon already signing the Tag Team Champions to face the Mamalukes at Bash At The Beach, he did the next best thing which would be for the Thrillers and Totally Buff to meet once more to determine who would be the number one contenders, and who would get the first title shot at whomever the Tag Team Champions are at the end of the Pay Per View.


    Hardcore Championship

    Bob ‘Hardcore’ Holly vs. Tommy Dreamer ©


    It was just a few weeks ago that Bob ‘Hardcore’ Holly and Crash Holly made their debut in WCW. And it was on that night that they, or rather Bob, set sites on the current Hardcore Champion, Tommy Dreamer. Through countless attacks on Tommy Dreamer and a few matches here and there, Bob Holly has made it clear that he wants the Hardcore Title and will do whatever it takes to get it. Recently, Holly and Tommy Dreamer’s mentor Terry Funk wrestled which Holly had won, and Holly continued to beat the ‘Hardcore Legend’ down enabling Dreamer to come out and make the save for his mentor and friend. More recently, Bob Holly and Tommy Dreamer continued to become engaged in backstage brawls, caused by Holly, enabling Tommy Dreamer to challenge him on Thunder. Will Tommy Dreamer overcome the obsessed Holly? Or will Holly finally do what he’s set out to do and capture the Hardcore Title?


    Tag Team Championship

    The Mamalukes vs. Kronik ©


    For two straight weeks, the Mamalukes managed to secure victories in non title situations over the Tag Team Champions. After the first loss, Kronik claimed that it was nothing but a fluke but had once again been defeated. Most recently in singles competition, Brian Adams managed to defeat Johnny The Bull, however because of the fact that the Mamalukes did beat Kronik two times in tag team competition, Shane McMahon had the title match signed, and thus the Mamalukes will go after Kronik in an attempt to capture their 3rd Tag Team Championship. Whomever wins this match will be challenged by either the team of Totally Buff, or the Natural Born Thrillers, to which Kronik is no strangers to


    Mike Awesome vs. Kevin Nash


    Since becoming the Television Champion and aligning himself with Jimmy Hart and the Hart Family, Mike Awesome has been on a tear, defeating all who have challenged him for the Television Championship. However, being part of the Hart Family he has been made a target by Goldberg whom has had problems with the Hart Family for weeks. It was recently on Thunder that Mike Awesome defended the Television Title against Diamond Dallas Page, which after he had won the match, Goldberg came out and attacked him, giving him a ‘Spear’ and a ‘Jackhammer’ for his troubles. It was on Thunder this past week that Mike Awesome tried to give Goldberg a warning but was interrupted by Kevin Nash who had been sick and tired of Awesome’s trash talking and claiming that he was the bigger man in WCW. Nash stated that he went to Shane McMahon earlier in the night and made it official that the two would meet at Bash At The Beach in a non title contest, with Nash saying that it’s not about the Television Title, but as a matter of respect. Will Nash be respected? Or will Mike Awesome earn some respect by defeating the actual big man in WCW?


    Dustin/Dusty Rhodes vs. Steiner Brothers


    The Steiner Brothers have unquestionably become the most hated team in WCW as of late, mostly because of their vicious attack on Dusty Rhodes a little over a month ago that put him in a hospital for weeks. Dustin Rhodes vowed revenge on the Steiner Brothers for this attack and over the last month or so he has been engaged in a few battles with both members of the Steiner Brothers, most notably Rick Steiner. Scott Steiner has beaten Rhodes in singles competition as has his brother Rick, however Dustin Rhodes has a personal vendetta to do his father and family proud, and though the Steiner Brothers have proven to be the better team, Dustin Rhodes continues to press on and fight them no matter what the outcome. In recent weeks, Dustin Rhodes and Rick Steiner did battle in which the victor of the match would challenge Bill DeMott for the United States Championship. Steiner managed to secure the victory and thus challenged DeMott on Thunder, however DeMott retained the title after Rick Steiner took his eyes off the match to scout Dustin Rhodes who walked towards ringside. From there, the Steiner Brothers trashed Dustin Rhodes on Nitro, stating that he too would end up in a hospital bed when they get their hands on him. Dustin Rhodes came out moments later and challenged them to a match at Bash At The Beach. When asked who his partner was, a returning Dusty Rhodes came out and they attacked the Steiner’s with baseball bats. With Dusty Rhodes back and in good health, he hopes to help his son honor the family name by defeating the Steiner Brothers, but will it be the Steiner Brothers that prove to be the better and younger family?


    Malice vs. Goldberg


    For weeks, Goldberg has been on a vendetta against the Hart Family. Every chance he got he would interfere in matches in an attempt to get his hands on Jimmy Hart, Jimmy Hart however has managed to escape. Most recently, Goldberg was attacked by the Hart Family, which ended in Malice giving Goldberg a ‘Chokeslam’ through a table, putting him out of action for a week, but Goldberg returned a week ago and attacked Mike Awesome after his match with Diamond Dallas Page. From there, Goldberg was involved in a backstage brawl that was separated by various security guards and referees, prompting Shane McMahon to make the decision that the two would meet at Bash At The Beach. Goldberg has a big night ahead of him, the question being can Goldberg give 6’10 Malice the ‘Jackhammer?’ Goldberg is no stranger to putting big men up in the move as he’s done before, but with the various attacks by the Hart Family, is he able to accomplish it Sunday night? We will find out Sunday.


    Jeff Jarrett vs. Booker T


    Since Shane McMahon’s purchase of WCW, Jeff Jarrett has been on a personal vendetta to once again claim himself as the ‘Chosen One’ of WCW. On this quest, he has chosen previous rivals over the years, has wrestled them and beaten them in order to show everybody that he is the ‘Chosen One.’ He has already beaten Sting and Diamond Dallas Page, and has now set his eyes on Booker T. For weeks, Jeff Jarrett has gotten under the skin of Booker T, attacking him more than once, but most recently when everybody thought that they would finally do battle in singles competition, Jeff Jarrett ducked out of the match and handed him over to Don Harris of the Harris Brothers, to which both of the Harris Brothers have been hired by Jarrett to take out Booker T. It was on Thunder last week that Jeff Jarrett trash talked Booker T enabling Booker T to come out for a fight, but unfortunately he was ambushed by the Harris Brothers and was given an ‘H-Bomb.’ Jarrett made the statement that he would leave Booker T the same way Sunday night. From there on Thunder, Jarrett offered a challenge to anybody worthwhile to come out and fight him as a warm up for his match, that challenge was answered by Sting. Sting and Jarrett did battle in the Main Event on Thunder which Jarrett had won controversially and thus giving him high expectations leading into Sunday. Due to his injuries sustained by the Harris Brothers on Nitro, Booker T stayed home Thursday night to recuperate but has made it a point to get with WCW officials telling them that he is in fact ready for Jarrett. Will Jarrett continue his quest or will Booker T finally be the one to knock Jarrett off in his quest to becoming the ‘Chosen One’ once again?


    World Heavyweight Championship

    Shane Douglas vs. Ric Flair ©


    Shane Douglas has been obsessed with becoming the World Heavyweight Champion since WCW had been bought by Shane McMahon. His obsession has lead to many matches with Flair even before Ric Flair won the title at the last Pay Per View. The feud between these two has finally come to this match at Bash At The Beach. Most recently, Shane Douglas has managed to secure a victory over the World Champion on Nitro in controversial fashion as he held onto the ropes to which Flair replied that he respected Douglas for doing that because he of course is the original ‘Dirtiest Player In The Game’ and thus Douglas took a page out of his own book. The two would continue to trade insults with each other in the weeks to come, culminating in a contract signing on Nitro. It was at this contract signing that Flair and Douglas, more so Douglas, were told by Shane McMahon that the contract they had just signed had a clause that stated if anyone should interfere on either’s behalf, they would be suspended. It was also stated that whomever’s behalf that it was on, they would be suspended as well, and they would be stripped of the World Heavyweight Title. With this contract and clause legally binding, Shane Douglas and Ric Flair will do battle Sunday night for the World Heavyweight Championship, and they will have to do things on their own. Can Shane Douglas finally overthrow Flair as the World Heavyweight Champion and fulfill his destiny? Or will Ric Flair once again prove to Douglas and the world that he is the greatest wrestler in the world?

    Re: World Championship Wrestling 2001 and Beyond

    Thunder Review

    Nice start to Thunder with the former Essa Rios and Psychosis putting on a decent CW encounter. The CW division was one of WCWs hallmarks that the WWF/E could never replicate. Putting them on first starts the night off well and gets the crowd pumped. Hopefully the CW division blossoms here.


    Jarrett segment was done very well, at first I expected Booker to come out and scare Jarrett off. But after Disco gets his head knocked off, Sting!!! Great choice and that should be an interesting match that I can only see Jarrett losing or weaseling his way out of it. Maybe Booker makes an appearance.

    Good segment between Shane and Chavo. Loved Shane cosying up to Chavo just to bring him right back down. I also commend you on the 'must beat Nagata to get to Chavo' bit. Adds an extra length a challenger must go to prove their worth. I expect Chavo to probably cheat to retain the title again, despite Shane's warning.

    Great win for The Thrillers over their former friends and partners. I always thought Palumbo/O'Haire were a missed opportunity, especially when they went over to the WWF/E.

    Decent promo from Dreamer, I have missed a fair bit of this but Dreamer/Holly in the battle of the Hardcore title is very WWF-ish but something I can get on board with. As much as CW wrestling was WCWs I think the WWF really did have the best Hardcore division, and it is nice to see you putting a change to WCWs with guys that are really 'hardcore'. Their match should be great.

    Dusty Rhodes referencing his Flair promo of 86 was great. Yeah I looked it up. Very nice. A family battle between the Rhodes and The Steiners is interesting, for me Scott Steiner is being underuses, really should be in the main event scene in 2001.

    Nash vs Awesome for the pay-per-view is, well awesome!!! I liked how Nash tried to prove that he is the biggest dog in WCW. Should be a huge match, and with the title off the line, it is very hard to predict.

    I knew Jarrett would weasel out, and the low blow kept both men looking strong heading into BATB. good end to the show and I am trying to get into this as it seems like a well written project. The pay-per-view will be interesting reading and I will try and give some predictions below.



    Bash At The Beach Predictions

    Chavo Guerrero sneaks the win over Ultimo. It would be easy to give Ultimo the win finally but I think there is more interest in Ultimo continuing to chase.

    Natural Born Thrillers to beat Totally Buff. The Thrillers are the future for me and I think a showdown with Kronik is on the horizon.

    Bob Holly to beat Tommy Dreamer. I feel this feud will continue after Bash At The Beach and the logical victory should go to the returning Holly and Dreamer having to try and step up to overcome him.

    Kronik to defeat The Mamalukes. Vito and Johnny have had a good run against Kronik, but the champs need to win to set up the bigger tag match against The Thrillers, which is where I eventually see the title change.

    Mike Awesome to defeat Kevin Nash. Awesome is on a roll and in a big showdown with Goldberg on the horizon, does not need any unnecessary setbacks. What better way to prove he is up to beating Goldberg by beating the man that ended Goldberg's streak.

    Rhodes Family to beat The Steiners. Pure and simple payback for me. I hope so anyway.

    Goldberg to beat Malice. Goldberg/Awesome is the money match so both men win tonight to continue the path towards that match.

    Booker T to beat Jeff Jarrett. If Jarrett wins he won't win clean, that is for sure, but I think Jarrett injuring Booker T gives Booker the fuel to get revenge.

    Shane Douglas defeats Ric Flair. I think with the odds supposedly against Douglas using his triple threat to help him, he will find some other way to steal the win . New champ for me

    Card is stacked so should be a good read and I look forward to seeing what you bring us. Good luck.

    Re: World Championship Wrestling 2001 and Beyond

    RHYNOS REVIEW





    This is probably my favorite project on the board as we speak. I think that is saying a lot considering the talent we have here. I'd say you and Syk are the two most consistent posters these days because both of you have the insane ability to churn out very detailed shows in about a week. (Which seems unreal to a slacker like me. I can't find the time.) I was going to suggest you slow down posting to about once a week, but then did the math and realized you were...(Womp, Womp, Wooooomp ) I may fall behind a little, but I love how this project does a good job of capturing the WCW feel and really works with what was available at the time. I think a lot of guys would gloss over Malice/The Wall, Khronik, The Mamalukes, Tottally Buff, etc. because a lot of people aren't familar with them or think they "suck". WCW used those guys, however, and they played a key part in the shows. That will be my first unofficial "Thing I like". I'm going to give you a broad overhead that sort of enveolpes your last Nitro and Thunder, as well as my thoughts going into the PPV.


    THINGS I LIKED / ENJOYED

    1.) Chavo & Ultimo have sort of stole the show the last 2 cards, but I'm noticing a very subtle build of other cruiserweights on your show. Blitzkreig, Psychosis, the cruiser tag divison, etc.... I'll go into my thoughts on the tag division later, but you have a viable list of smaller talent that I think adds a good bit of depth and better matches to your shows. The problem WCW had was giving those guys personality, but I'm seeing you do that with Mike Sanders being cocky, or Poppa Chulo's character. There are obviously more, but I like how you are developing their outside the ring characters and personalities. That is really what gets the crowd to care about them and gets them over. You are doing very subtley, but I'm noticing and enjoying it.

    2.) In an earlier review, I mentioned I liked how you are using the tag division so there is no need to repeat that. I see most bookers try and focus their tag division on titles and totally ignore any character development for the teams in the under card program. A lot of this is time on a card or the devaluation of tag team wrestling in the modern wrestling scene. You, however, make all of your programs mean something. Much like the cruiserwieght scene here, I really like how you grasp the importance of making sure everyone has a story and a character to help the fans identify with.
    The Natural Born Thrillers / Totally Buff feud is a good example.... Having the younger guys just run through a team that most modern wrestling fans look down on would be pointless. Buff and Lugar were names that meant something back then. Lugar was a former world champion and his name still had some clout. Using that to help O'Hare and Palumbo get over is great, but it has to be a challenge to make the push worthwhile. You are providing that in this program. It is just very very smart booking.

    3.) Your two main event feuds.... (Jarrett & Booker T / Douglas & Flair) have me eagerly looking forward to your shows. I like how one side hasn't tipped the scales and there is a genuine wonder as to what is going to happen. Maybe Flair shouldn't be where he is on the card, but he was still a huge draw back then. Douglas wasn't, but I see you getting him there and really using his ECW character to full effect in WCW.
    Booker T needed a high profile feud to get over in WCW.I can never foundly remember a GREAT WCW feud he had with a performer that was a signature for his career. That was always a damn shame. (OK, maybe the Benoit series for the US title).... Anyway, he and Double J are getting legit heat and overness and creating a (Rock/Stonecold, Flair/Steambot, etc.) type of feud that will have legs for years. It is cool to see.





    THINGS I'M NOT SURE ABOUT / DON'T THINK WORKED AS WELL

    1.) The large amount of titles... Too many titles makes them meaningless. I'd drop the TV belt and Cruiserweight tag because of this reason. The Hardcore title is sort of niche, but I'm counting 6 belts for a company that isn't that large. It seems like overkill.

    2.) The Jarret/Sting match had sort of a weird ending... The way it read, Jarret recovered form that Scorpion Death Drop really fast; almost no selling it. I'd just look at it.

    3.) Bringing back Dusty is nostalgic, but I'd be careful with it. Dusty's return needs to put people over. Dustin may need that, but Steiner (Big Poppa Pump) can only be hurt by it. I'm not sure how it could/will play out in the PPV.

    Live From The Ocean Center in Daytona Beach, Florida


    The camera fades inside the Ocean Center in Daytona Beach, Florida. Fireworks go off above the ring and the camera pans around the arena before stopping at the announcers table where Tony Schiavone and Mike Tenay are standing by


    Tony Schiavone: WELCOME TO THE OCEAN CENTER IN BEAUTIFUL DAYTONA BEACH, FLORIDA! AND WELCOME TO THE BIGGEST PARTY OF THE SUMMER, BASH AT THE BEACH! I’m Tony Schiavone alongside with Mike Tenay. And Mike, we’ve finally made it to Bash At The Beach.

    Mike Tenay: We’ve finally made it, Tony. And finally we’re going to be seeing some high caliber matches tonight that we’ve been waiting to see for a few weeks now. Some feuds are going to possibly end tonight. Some titles MAY change hands. But more importantly tonight we will show the fans and the world watching at home why World Championship Wrestling is number one.

    Tony Schiavone: You mentioned just now that we may see a few titles change hands tonight. We’ve got four titles on the line tonight, the Cruiserweight Title, the Tag Team Titles, the Hardcore, and the World Heavyweight Title are all on the line tonight.

    Mike Tenay: Well the match was made on Thunder by Shane McMahon that because of what happened on Nitro, Chavo Guerrero and Ultimo Dragon will meet again tonight, and Shane McMahon made it perfectly clear that Chavo better not try any funny stuff this time around otherwise he’d be stripped of the title. Of course the Hardcore Champion, Tommy Dreamer challenged Bob Holly to a match tonight after Holly continues to attack him from behind, continues to tell everybody that he is the true definition of ‘hardcore,’ well tonight Tommy Dreamer has challenged him, we’ll see if he can follow through.

    Tony Schiavone: That’s without question going to be a war. As far as the Tag Team Titles go, the Mamalukes get a chance to reclaim the Tag Team Titles as they go up against Kronik. And last but not least, the World Heavyweight Champion, Ric Flair takes on the ‘Franchise’ Shane Douglas.

    Mike Tenay: And let’s not forget about the contract that was signed on Nitro. Without reading the fine print, Shane Douglas signed the contract and the contract states that if anybody interferes tonight on anyone’s behalf, they would be suspended for 60 days. So if the Triple Threat get involved, that’s it, the Triple Threat will be suspended along with Douglas. If anybody interferes on behalf of the ‘Nature Boy’ Ric Flair, they’re suspended along with Ric Flair.

    Tony Schiavone: And whomever the champion is at the end of the night, if someone interferes and they’re the champion, the title will be stripped. So its fair to say that MAYBE the title will change hands tonight, but it’s also fair to say that the title will be stripped and we wont have a World Heavyweight Champion at all!

    Mike Tenay: It’s going to be interesting.

    Tony Schiavone: Well what do you say we kick this night off, LET’S GO TO DAVID PENZER FOR THE OPENING MATCH!

    The camera fades down to the ring


    “Dragon” starts up and the fans cheer as Ultimo Dragon walks out on stage and stops at the top of the entrance ramp and folds his arms as sparklers start going off behind him in a circular motion


    David Penzer: Ladies and gentlemen this contest is set for one fall with a 20 minute time limit. And it is for the WCW CRUISERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP! Introducing first, from Mexico City, New Mexico…. ULTIMOOOOOO DRAAAAAGON!

    Dragon heads down the aisle and leaps inside the ring. Dragon climbs up the turnbuckle and raises his arms in victory as the music fades


    ~LAAAAA RAZZZZZAAAAAAA~

    Tony Schiavone: HE GOT HIM!

    Mike Tenay: Dragon had the ‘Dragon Sleeper’ locked in but he didn’t position himself right which allowed Guerrero to knee him in the head a couple times to break the hold, and then hooking him in an inside cradle for the 3 count, and Chavo Guerrero retains the Cruiserweight Title.

    Chavo Guerrero walks back up the entrance ramp holding the Cruiserweight Title screaming ‘I did it!’ as Dragon looks on from the ring disappointed


    Tony Schiavone: Well Chavo Guerrero keeps the Cruiserweight Title, and right now ladies and gentlemen, let’s take you backstage to Scott Hudson.

    Backstage


    The camera fades backstage where Scott Hudson is standing outside the dressing room of the Triple Threat


    Scott Hudson: Thanks, Tony. I’m backstage here outside the Triple Threat’s locker room. There’s been some chatter going on so I’m trying to get a word with the ‘Franchise’ Shane Douglas.

    Scott Hudson knocks on the dressing room door. A few seconds later Chris Candido answers


    Chris Candido: What do you want?

    Scott Hudson: I was wondering if I can get a word with Shane Douglas?

    Candido closes the door. A few seconds later the door opens and Scott Hudson walks inside where Shane Douglas is busy lacing up his boots. Bam Bam Bigelow stands beside him while Tammy Sytch stands beside Candido


    Scott Hudson: Shane Douglas I was won-

    Shane Douglas: HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO TELL YOU IDIOTS, WHEN YOU ADDRESS ME, YOU ADDRESS ME AS THE ‘FRANCHISE!’

    Scott Hudson: I apologize… ‘Franchise’ I was won-

    Shane Douglas: Let me guess. You want me to cut a promo on Ric Flair? You want me to talk about tonight? Right?

    Scott Hudson: Well yes.

    Shane Douglas: I thought so. And this is all I’m going to say and I’m gonna make it short and sweet because frankly your face is just pissing me off and I’m two seconds away from getting out of this chair and slapping the hell out of you. Shane McMahon thinks he can one up me by making me sign a contract saying that the Triple Threat can’t get involved tonight otherwise we’ll all be suspended. It doesn’t matter WHAT that contract says, the Triple Threat does what the hell we want to do. But I’ll be DAMNED! I’ll be DAMNED when I win the World Heavyweight Title tonight that it just gets taken away from me. So with that being said, Shane McMahon and Ric Flair don’t have to worry about the Triple Threat getting involved tonight. I became a World Champion without the Triple Threat, I can sure as hell do I again. And tonight, bet your ass that I’m walking out of this place as the NEW WCW World Heavyweight Champion. The ‘Nature Boy’ era ends, and the dawn of the ‘Franchise’ and the Triple Threat begins. Now get the hell out of my sight. Bam Bam, take care of it.

    Suddenly Bam Bam Bigelow grabs Scott Hudson by the back of his shirt and starts shoving him out of the dressing room. Once out of the dressing room, Bigelow slams the door and Scott Hudson straightens himself up

    Backstage

    Scott Hudson: Thanks guys. ‘Nature Boy’ earlier tonight I interviewed Shane Douglas, and he seems VERY confident that he’s going to be walking out of here tonight the new World Heavyweight Champion. What’s going through your mind right now as we’re just a couple matches away from the big Main Event between you two?

    Ric Flair stares off camera for a second and smiles as he hears the fans cheering inside the arena


    Ric Flair: Scott Hudson, as I went to bed last night. I had a dream. And in this dream, we were here at the Ocean Center. I was in the Main Event. I was wrestling the ‘Franchise’ Shane Douglas. We beat each other up and down the ring. And in the end, I put Douglas in the ‘Figure 4,’ I made him tap out. And I walked out of the Ocean Center STILL the World Heavyweight Champion. And then I woke up. I woke up and I sat in my bed and I was sad. I was sad because I realized that it was just a dream.

    Flair holds his head down for a second but then look up with his eyes widened


    Ric Flair: WELL TONIGHT, ‘WOOOOOO!’ THAT DREAM BECOMES A REALITY! ‘Franchise!’ I heard you say earlier that you became a World Champion without the help of the Triple Threat. That may be true! But the difference is when you became World Champion, YOU DIDN’T BEAT ME FOR IT! Harley Race! Ricky Steamboat! Dusty Rhodes! Vader! THE LIST-GOES-ON-AND-ON! I’VE BEATEN THE BEST OF THE BEST OF THE BEST FOR THIS! *Pointing At The World Title* When you won a World Heavyweight Title, you did it in some building in front of a couple hundred people. I WON THIS SEVENTEEN TIMES IN FRONT OF THOUSANDS! I’ll make this perfectly clear, YES you were a World Champion at one point. But when you sit there and you try to compare yourself as a World Champion compared to MY SUCCESS! There is no comparison! I’M THE ‘NAAAAAAATURE BOY!’ I’m the HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION OF THE WORLD! And in just a little while, I’m gonna be known as man who ‘franchised’ the ‘Franchise!’ ‘WOOOOOOOOOOO!’

    Flair walks off


    Scott Hudson: THANK YOU ‘NATURE BOY!’ BACK TO YOU TONY AND MIKE!

GOLDBERG JUST HIT HIM WITH THE ‘SPEAR!’ Goldberg jumps up and screams while swinging his arms out and now gives a signal to the fans who know what’s about to come!

    Tony Schiavone: You got that right!

    Mike Tenay: And if you think about it, Tony it’s been really all Booker T in this contest. Jarrett’s had little to no offense. So the question has to be asked, what has Jarrett got planned?

    Winner: Jeff Jarrett via countout
    Tony Schiavone: I can’t believe it!

    Mike Tenay: I have to agree with you, Tony. But there was honestly no way Booker T was going to answer that count. Jeff Jarrett drove him down hard on the outside with ‘The Stroke’ and he defeats Booker T.

    Tony Schiavone: But he didn’t pin him in the ring.

    Mike Tenay: No he did not.

    Jarrett exits the ring and celebrates up the entrance ramp as medics check up on Booker T who’s still down


    Tony Schiavone: And right now, Booker T is still knocked out from ‘The Stroke.’ Your winner is Jeff Jarrett but the fact of the matter is that he did NOT pin or submit Booker T here tonight.

    Mike Tenay: Hopefully Booker T is alright.

    Tony Schiavone: Well while Booker T gets the help he needs ladies and gentlemen we will go ahead and remind you that our next Pay Per View will be Sunday, August the 26th as WCW presents Uncensored!

THE ‘NATURE BOY’ RIIIIIC FLAAAAAAAAAAIR!

    Nitro Preview


    Coming off the Pay Per View, rivalries have either been handled or unfinished. Certainly a rivalry that has yet to be finished is the rivalry between World Heavyweight Champion Ric Flair and the ‘Franchise’ Shane Douglas. Shane Douglas and Ric Flair went the distance last night at the Pay Per View going the full time limit resulting in a draw. Because of this, Ric Flair STILL remains World Heavyweight Champion, and Douglas was not pleased one bit, attacking Flair at the end of the match when he was awarded the title. Shane Douglas and Ric Flair are scheduled to appear this week on WCW TV but will they meet in a rematch?

    Despite Shane McMahon foiling his plans, Chavo Guerrero managed to retain his Cruiserweight Title last night against a great match against Ultimo Dragon. With his title still in tact, it’s a sure bet that he will once again use Yuji Nagata as his personal assistant with his frequent open challenges. So the question remains, who will answer the open challenges, but more importantly, who will be able to defeat Nagata to challenge Chavo?

    After weeks of antagonizing him, Bob ‘Hardcore’ Holly finally got his chance to go after Tommy Dreamer and the Hardcore Title last night, but fell short of his goal at capturing the title. Make no mistake about it however, these two without question symbolized what ‘hardcore’ truly is as they brawled all over the arena and eventually outside in the parking lot. With Tommy Dreamer walking out with a victory last night, one can only speculate just what kind of mood Bob Holly is going to be in tomorrow night. Will there be another attack on Tommy Dreamer?

    In an impressive winning effort, Totally Buff have earned the right to face off against the Tag Team Champions, Kronik. Kronik managed to defeat the Mamalukes last night to retain the titles, but now they face off with Totally Buff, a team they have yet to square off in the ring against. It is no doubt that Totally Buff are hungry for championship gold, they have yet to capture the Tag Team Titles, so will this be their big chance or will they continue to stay hungry as the winning odds have yet to be in their favor since becoming a team?

    After weeks of waiting, Goldberg finally managed to get his hands on Jimmy Hart. In an impressive victory against Malice, Goldberg managed to pick the big man up and ‘Jackhammered’ his way to victory. Afterwards, Jimmy Hart tried to escape through the crowd but Goldberg managed to catch him to bring him back in the ring. However from what it appeared to be a sign of mercy, Goldberg picked Jimmy Hart up and threw him from the ring to the outside on his Hart Family instead of giving him a ‘Jackhammer’ to which everyone wanted to see. What’s next for Goldberg? Or more importantly, WHO is next?

    Jeff Jarrett continues to be a thorn in the side of Booker T as last nights win will surely cause Jarrett to once again gloat about being the ‘Chosen One.’ Last night in a shocking turn of events, Jeff Jarrett did not have the Harris Brothers help him out like he’s done in the recent few weeks. Instead he said that he ‘had Booker T right where he wants him.’ During the match, Jarrett inadvertently hit the referee, allowing him to try and use the guitar but in a shocking turn of events, Booker T managed to take the guitar and break it, leaving Jarrett to win it on his own, which in the end, Jarrett managed to give Booker T ‘The Stroke’ on the floor to declare him the victor via count out. Will Jeff Jarrett now choose his new opponent tomorrow night? Tune in to find out.

    Live From the Civic Center in Pensacola, Florida

    The camera fades inside the Civic Center in Pensacola, Florida as fireworks start going off above the ring. The camera pans around the arena for a few seconds before finally fading down to the announcers table where Tony Schiavone and Mike Tenay are standing by


    Tony Schiavone: WELCOME EVERYONE TO THE HOTTEST SHOW ON MONDAY NIGHTS, THIS IS MONDAY NITRO! We are LIVE in the Civic Center in Pensacola, Florida. And Mike, we are 24 hours removed from Bash At The Beach.

    Mike Tenay: What a show it was last night, and for those of you that missed it, tomorrow night there will be an instant replay on Pay Per View. But Tony, it was truly a great show from WCW, a lot of big matches won for instance, Dusty and Dustin Rhodes defeated the Steiner Brothers. Goldberg did the impossible and picked Malice up for the ‘Jackhammer’ to earn himself a win.

    Tony Schiavone: Goldberg got his hands on Jimmy Hart.

    Mike Tenay: Chavo Guerrero defeated Ultimo Dragon to retain the Cruiserweight Title. Jeff Jarrett beat Booker T…

    Tony Schiavone: Now he beat him, but he did not pin him in the ring.

    Mike Tenay: No, he did not. He won by a count out. And at the end of the night in the Main Event, Shane Douglas and Ric Flair went to a time limit draw, but the fact remains, Ric Flair is still the World Heavyweight Champion.

    Tony Schiavone: Yes the ‘Nature Boy’ is still the World Champion and with that being said, let’s take you to ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund standing in the ring!

    In Ring Segment


    The camera fades down to the ring where ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund is standing by


    Gene Okerlund: Thank you, Tony. Ladies and gentlemen we are live here on Nitro. And right now I want to bring out a man whom last night CONTINUES to wear the World Heavyweight Championship. Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome, THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION, THE ‘NATURE BOY’ RIC… FLAIR!

    “Dawn” starts up and the fans cheer as Ric Flair walks out wearing casual clothes carrying the World Heavyweight Title around his shoulder. Flair lets out a ‘Wooo!’ and heads down to the ring. Flair climbs inside the ring and walk up to Gene Okerlund and looks on at the crowd as the music fades


    Gene Okerlund: ‘Nature Boy’ last night you and Shane Douglas had one hell of a match. Unfortunately you did not beat Shane Douglas, however, you STILL remain the World Heavyweight Champion since the title cannot change hands on a time limit draw. Tell us ‘Nature Boy’ your thoughts now that it’s all over with.

    Flair continues to look on but finally starts to speak after a few seconds


    Ric Flair: Gene, I’ve gotta be honest with you. I’m a little unhappy about what happened last night. I was looking forward to beating Douglas in the middle of this ring. But sometimes, things don’t always go how you want them to. So I know he’s listening right now. I want to say to Shane Douglas personally, that I give him credit where it’s due. Shane Douglas, last night you and I got in this ring, and we beat the living hell out of each other. It was without question probably match of the year. You stepped your game up. But the fact remains, I am STILL the WCW World Heavyweight Champion. Time limit or not, this belt is still in my possession, and-

    ~PERFECT STRANGERS~


    Tony Schiavone: Well we knew this might happen tonight.

    “Perfect Strangers” by Deep Purple starts up and the fans boo as the Triple Threat walk out on stage with Douglas carrying a microphone


    Shane Douglas: CUT THE DAMN MUSIC!

    The fans boo as the music fades. Douglas stares down Flair for a few seconds before speaking


    Shane Douglas: Now I appreciate the fact that you can come out here and admit that I stepped my game up, that we had a great match… But lets talk about another fact Ric. Let’s talking about the fact that last night I WAS ROBBED FROM BECOMING THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION!

    The fans boo as Flair looks on shaking his head


    Shane Douglas: DON’T SHAKE YOUR HEAD AT ME! Last night I had your ass BEAT in the middle of that ring. I knocked your old ass out with the ‘Franchiser’ you were down for the damn three count, and right before your little buddy Charles Robinson slammed his hand down for the three count, the damn bell ring because the time had expired. I had you BEAT! I know it, you know it, WCW knows it. THE FACT IS FLAIR, I had you BEAT bottom line and I WAS ROBBED! That belt should be around my damn waist right now.

    The fans continue to boo as Flair looks on


    Ric Flair: Like I said a minute ago… You and I had a hell of a match. And as much as I wanted to beat you, things don’t always go the way you hope… I know you wanted to beat me and take this belt away from me, but hey, we had a set time to do it in, and neither you or I were able to walk out the winner so-

    Shane Douglas: Walk out a winner!? Walk out a winner!? I know at your age you tend to forget things quickly. But let me just remind you that I knocked your ass out. I had you PINNED in the middle of the damn ring. That belt was MINE! The ref saw it, the announcers saw it, these people here saw it live! And if it weren’t for the damn bell ringing while I had you beat, I’d be standing here as the World Heavyweight Champion. BUT ONCE AGAIN, I WAS ROBBED! Shane McMahon could have come out and issued another five minutes like he would do for damn near anybody. But instead he kept his ass backstage and didn’t say a damn word. Well I’m out here right now, because since I was robbed… Since it was a time limit draw… The way I see it, YOU OWE ME A REMATCH FOR THAT BELT! You owe me a rematch, and damnit, I want that rematch TONIGHT!

    The fans cheer as Flair smirks


    Ric Flair: You want a rematch tonight?

    Shane Douglas: Your damn right I do.

    Ric Flair: Well all you had to do was-

    ~HERE COMES THE MONEY~


    “Here Comes The Money” starts up and the fans cheer as Shane McMahon walks out on stage carrying a microphone. McMahon stands to the side of the Triple Threat with Douglas seen asking ‘What are you doing here?’ to McMahon. The music finally fades out leaving McMahon about to speak


    Shane McMahon: Gentlemen, before either one of you go off and make any decisions regarding tonight, I must interject and tell you that a rematch between you two will not be happening tonight.

    The fans boo as Douglas is irate


    Shane McMahon: Now listen. Without question last night was a hell of a match, and without question, YES Shane Douglas you had Flair in a pinning predicament as the time ran out. And after reviewing the footage from last night, it is in my honest opinion that Charles Robinson made the right call to declare the match a draw. However, because it was declared a draw, and there was no clear winner. It is in my opinion that there SHOULD in fact, be a rematch.

    The fans cheer as Douglas and Flair look on



    Shane Douglas: Your damn right there should be McMahon! And I WANT IT TONIGHT!

    The fans boo as Shane McMahon looks on at Douglas


    Shane McMahon: Douglas, you can forget about getting a rematch tonight. But if it makes you feel any better, I have authorized the rematch to take place NEXT WEEK on Nitro.

    Douglas nods his head in approval


    Tony Schiavone: Well there we go!

    Mike Tenay: Looks like Douglas gets yet another shot to go after Flair!

    Shane McMahon: As far as tonight goes however. Both of you two will be in warm up matches to prepare yourselves for next week. So, right now, Chris Candido, go ahead on down to the ring, because you’re facing the ‘Nature Boy!’

    The fans cheer as Candido has a look of shock in his eyes. Candido starts shaking his head for a second until Douglas calms him down and hypes him up


    Shane McMahon: And Douglas… In the Main Event tonight… You’ve got Sting. Good luck.

    The fans cheer as Shane McMahon starts walking off leaving Douglas irate


    Tony Schiavone: DOUGLAS AND STING TONIGHT!

    Mike Tenay: Well that’s a warm up match if I’ve ever heard of one.

    Tony Schiavone: Fans we’ve got to take a commercial break, when we come back, FLAIR AND CANDIDO LOCK UP! STAY WITH US!


    (COMMERCIAL)



    The camera fades back on Nitro with Candido standing on the outside of the ring still talking things over with the Triple Threat as Ric Flair waits inside the ring


    Tony Schiavone: Welcome back fans and if you’re just joining us, Shane McMahon has booked a match between Ric Flair and Chris Candido. And as you can see Candido a little reluctant to get in the ring. But also tonight in the Main Event it’s going to be Shane Douglas taking on Sting, as a warm up for next Monday night as Shane Douglas and Ric Flair will go at it once again with the World Heavyweight Title on the line.

    Mike Tenay: And look at this Tony I think Candido is ready!

    Tony Schiavone: HERE WE GO! AND FLAIR ISN’T EVEN IN WRESTLING GEAR!

    Ric Flair vs. Chris Candido

Bigelow picks Flair up and tosses him in the ring and now Candido comes up and starts stomping Flair on the mat.

    Tony Schiavone: And I don’t think Flair stands a chance with the Triple Threat out here tonight!

    Mike Tenay: This could be payback for not being able to interfere last night at Bash At The Beach.

    Candido picks Flair up and nails him with a few punches and shoots him to the ropes. Flair bounces off and Candido gives him a back elbow.

    The fans erupt as Sting runs down the aisle with a baseball bat in hand and slides inside the ring. The Triple Threat quickly jump to the outside as Sting stands tall with Ric Flair


    Tony Schiavone: And right now Sting is sending a message to Shane Douglas. And that message is they’re going to lock up tonight in the Main Event!

    Mike Tenay: And you have to wonder of course where the Triple Threat will be during that match.

    Tony Schiavone: Right now folks lets take you backstage to ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund.

    Backstage


    The camera fades backstage where ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund is standing by with Jimmy Hart who has a neck brace on and looks completely miserable


    Gene Okerlund: Thank you, Tony. Jimmy Hart, I gotta say that last night just wasn’t your night pal. Sure you had one of your clients win their match controversially, but your big man Malice fell victim to Goldberg, and from the looks of things, so did you.

    Jimmy Hart: Let me tell you something ‘Mean’ Gene! I don’t even want to THINK about Goldberg right now, but after what he did to me last night at the Pay Per View, he’s all that’s on my mind. I went to the doctor today, they said I’ve got severe whiplash in my neck because of Goldberg. So right now, I’m telling Goldberg to watch his back, because as soon as my neck feels better, I’m getting my boys together, and we’re going after him!

    Gene Okerlund: *Laughing* Certainly you don’t think for one second that THAT’S gonna happen, he’s practically ran through each and every one of you.

    Jimmy Hart: You just wait and see ‘Mean’ Gene. Everybody has a bad night. And last night was the worst!

    Jimmy Hart holds his neck in pain when suddenly Kevin Nash comes into view and stares Hart down


    Kevin Nash: Hey Jimmy. Where’s your boy Mike Awesome at?

    Jimmy Hart: M-m-Mike Awesome? H-he’s not here, Nash.

    Kevin Nash: Where is he?

    Jimmy Hart: H-he and the guys have the night off tonight. W-what do you want him for?

    Kevin Nash: Oh, no reason. Just that we’ve got some unfinished business from last night and I kinda wanted to take care of it. But since he’s not here, I guess I’ll just relay the message to you.

    Nash grabs Jimmy Hart by the throat and puts him against the wall, Hart starts moaning from the pain in his neck


    Kevin Nash: You go ahead and get your boys, pick three of em, and meet me, DDP, and Goldberg at Thunder this week. Got it?!

    Jimmy Hart: Y-yeah baby I got it, I got it, I got it.

    Nash releases Hart and walks off as Hart continues to thrive in pain while holding his neck



    (COMMERCIAL)



    The camera fades back on Nitro


    Tony Schiavone: Welcome back fans and I guess things between Mike Awesome and Kevin Nash are far from over.

    Mike Tenay: Yea no kidding. Awesome squeaked by with a win over ‘Big Sexy’ last night when he nailed him over the head with the TV Title, you can believe Nash is looking for some payback.

    In Ring Segment


    ~LAAAAAA RAZAAAAAA~


    “Latino World Order” starts up and the fans boo as Chavo Guerrero, Yuji Nagata, and Sonny Onoo make their way out onto the stage. Chavo holds up the Cruiserweight Title and heads down the aisle with Onoo and Nagata in tow


    Tony Schiavone: Well there you see the Cruiserweight Champion, Chavo Guerrero. He successfully retained the title against Ultimo Dragon and now since he’s bringing out Nagata and Onoo I’m assuming that the open challenge is once again going to happen.

    Chavo, Nagata and Onoo climb inside the ring and Chavo grabs a microphone as the music fades


    Chavo Guerrero: *Holds Up The Cruiserweight Title* Well as you can all plainly see, I am still the WCW Cruiserweight Champion.

    The fans boo


    Chavo Guerrero: And I know that Ultimo Dragon is a little upset that I outwrestled him last night at Bash At The Beach. But frankly, I could care less about what he feels, because as of this moment, I don’t have to face him again, UNLESS he can get past my personal business partner, Nagata.

    The fans continue to boo as Sonny Onoo pats Nagata on the back


    Chavo Guerrero: Now I know there are a lot of guys in the back that want this beautiful belt of mine… Well you all know the drill. Open challenge! Anybody that wants a shot at this belt, has to go through Nagata. So if anybody wants to try their luck, then come onnnnn down!

    ~THE JUICE IS LOOSE~

    Tony Schiavone: And Juvi seems to have thing going his way in the early goings but Nagata is still fresh and can always come back like we’ve seen him do before.

    Mike Tenay: And look at Chavo, he doesn’t seem a bit worried at all which tells you that he really doesn’t think Juvi can even win it here tonight.

    Juvi picks Nagata up and slides him in the ring. Juvi climbs on the apron and hits a slingshot leg drop and makes the cover, 1…2, Nagata kicks out. Juvi pick Nagata up and takes him to the corner and nails him with a few kicks and now sits him up top.

    Winner: Yuji Nagata via ‘Twisting Brainbuster’
    Tony Schiavone: And Nagata wins it!

    Mike Tenay: Juventud tried to mount a comeback but Nagata was just too fierce for him. He hit him with that ‘Twisting Brainbuster’ and it was over right there.

    Tony Schiavone: Fans stay tuned for more action here on TNT, we’ll be back!

    Bob Holly: You IDIOT! I can’t believe you lost! Now I told you that if I brought you to WCW that you better not make me look bad. Well what in the HELL did you just do out there? YOU LOST!

    Crash Holly: Awww come on cousin, I couldn’t help it. That guy kicked me so damn hard in the face I saw stars! And wait a minute… You talk about me losing, you lost to Tommy Dreamer last night!

    Bob Holly turns around looking displeased with what his cousin just said. He turns back around at Crash who now points a finger at him


    Crash Holly: Yeah, YOU LOST LAST NIGHT! What about that, huh?

    Bob Holly: You know something, don’t even worry about that, cuz I’ve got that covered. But you, YOU lost tonight. You screwed up. I suggest you get your head screwed on straight before I knock it the hell off.

    Bob Holly walks away leaving Crash behind as the camera fades back to the announcers table

    Mike Tenay: Bob Holly’s got something up his sleeve. And ironically enough, Tommy Dreamer is set to face Crowbar next in a non title match. If I were Dreamer I’d keep a close eye out.

    Tommy Dreamer: I NEED SOME HELP HERE! SOMEONE GET SOME HELP! DAMNIT SOMEONE HELP!

    Tony Schiavone: Oh this is bad… L-let’s go to commercial.


    (COMMERCIAL)



    The camera fades back on Nitro with EMT’s attending to Terry Funk as Tommy Dreamer paces around in the background


    Tony Schiavone: Welcome back fans and we apologize for what you’re seeing. This was a planned attack orchestrated by Bob Holly, a revenge attack so to speak for Tommy Dreamer retaining the Hardcore Title last night at Bash At The Beach. I can’t imagine what’s going through Tommy Dreamers mind right now.

    Dreamer continues to pace back and forth until the camera finally fades back to the announcers table


    Tony Schiavone: Well fans I’m being told that our cameras can no longer stay back there while the EMT’s tend to Terry Funk. What a night it’s been here on Nitro. We’ve seen some great matches, but to see that, it’s just unsettling.

    Mike Tenay: And the fact that Bob Holly had this all planned out is just down right despicable. Mark my words, Tony, he is a marked man, and Tommy Dreamer is going to avenge his fallen friend.

    ~THE CHOSEN ONE~


    Tony Schiavone: Oh no.. Not this.

    In Ring Segment


    “Cowboy (Instrumental)” by Kid Rock starts up and the fans boo as Jeff Jarrett walks out on stage carrying his trusty guitar.

Jarrett climbs inside the ring and quickly grabs a microphone from David Penzer and starts to speak as the music fades



    Jeff Jarrett: Last night, each and every single one of you saw me come out to this very ring, and beat, that’s right BEAT Booker T!

    The fans boo


    Jeff Jarrett: Booker T talked the talked but he couldn’t walk the walk. And last night when I beat him I once again elevated myself by getting one step closer to being back on the top of the mountain and being the ‘Chosen One’ for this company. And since last night, all I’ve heard in the last twenty four hours is ‘Who are you picking as your next opponent?’ Who indeed? WHO am I going to pick to beat AGAIN to continue on my quest. And the truth of the matter is I don’t know at this point. It could be anybody. It could-

    ~DON’T HATE THE PLAYA… HATE THE GAME~


    The fans cheer as Booker T walks out on stage and starts heading down the aisle


    Tony Schiavone: Well here we go!

    Mike Tenay: Booker T walking down to that ring with a purpose!

    Booker heads down to the ring and grabs another microphone and climbs inside and stares Jarrett down as the music fades


    Jeff Jarrett: Now just what the HELL are you doing out here, huh? This is MY time!

    Booker T: Jeff, I just had to come down here tonight and look you face to face… And say you’re right.

    Tony Schiavone: What?

    Booker T: You’re right Jeff. You beat me last night. But before you go spitting off about how you beat me, let’s clear up one thing that you’re forgetting about last night. You may have beat me, but you didn’t pin me.

    The fans cheer as Jeff Jarrett looks to be a little irritable


    Booker T: Nah, you didn’t pin me. You didn’t submit me. You gave me a ‘Stroke’ and I’ll give ya that one, you snuck it up on me, and ya did it outside on the floor, yeah, you knocked me out. Facts is facts dog. You beat me, but you ain’t pin me for the 1,2,3. But that’s cool. Cuz look, way I figure it, you don’t gotta choose your next opponent… Cuz your next opponent is still gon be me!

    Suddenly Booker rushes up and tackles Jarrett to the mat and starts throwing haymakers! The fans are cheering as Jarrett and Booker T brawl around the ring for a second before breaking away from each other. Jarrett grabs the guitar and swings but Booker ducks! Jarrett turns around and Booker nails him with the ‘Book End!’


    Tony Schiavone: [size=3] Booker plants Jarrett with the ‘Book End!’ [/color]

    Mike Tenay: And furthermore, we still know who Jarrett is facing next, the same man he did NOT pin or submit last night, Booker T!

    Booker leaves the ring and heads back to the locker room. Jarrett gets off the canvas holding his back in pain and starts talking smack as he watches him walk



    Tony Schiavone: Fans we’ve got to take our last commercial break, stay tuned, your main event is next!

Sting shoots Douglas to the other corner and runs in with a hard clothesline! Sting backs away but now Douglas drops down and rolls to the outside to catch a breather. Sting goes over and talks trash to Douglas but now Douglas trips him up and pulls him to the outside and the two start trading right hands with each other.

    Tony Schiavone: Ouch! Sting hit hard on that one and now Douglas with the advantage.

    Mike Tenay: Yeah you know Douglas wants to send a message to Ric Flair. And if Douglas pulls out a win tonight, he’s sure to be fired up for his rematch against Flair next Monday night.

    Douglas picks Sting up and slides him in the ring. Douglas climbs in and stomps Sting as he tries to get back to his feet. Douglas pulls him up and gives him a few forearms and shoots him to the ropes. Sting bounces off and Douglas picks him up but Sting squirms and lands behind him. Douglas turns around and Sting nails him with a few right hands and chops. Sting shoots him to the ropes but Douglas reverses. Sting bounces off and ducks a clothesline. Douglas turns around and Sting nails him with a flying clothesline! Douglas gets to his feet and Sting picks him up and gives him a body slam.

Sting makes the cover, 1…2, Douglas kicks out. Sting picks Douglas up and forearms him a few times and shoots him to the ropes but Douglas reverses. Sting bounces off and ducks a clothesline and wraps Douglas up from behind. Douglas elbows out of it and hits the ropes but Sting connects with a powerslam! Sting with the cover, 1…2, Douglas kicks out. Sting now grabs the leg of Douglas and starts stomping it and now locks in a leg lock. Douglas refuses to give in and now Sting finally releases the hold.

    Tony Schiavone: Sting now trying to wear Douglas down and he’s working on the legs.

    Mike Tenay: Yep, gonna wear the legs down and possibly set him up for the Scorpion Death Lock.

    Sting picks Douglas up and nails him with a few right hands and shoots him to the ropes. Douglas bounces off and Sting misses a clothesline and Douglas quickly pulls him around and hits a single arm DDT! Douglas gets to his feet and now starts stomping on the shoulder of Sting and now drops down and locks in an armbar. Douglas tightens the hold and Sting tries to break out of it but now Douglas pulls him up and tosses him in the corner and gives him a hard clothesline!

Sting continues to hold on and now Douglas drags him up again and plants a few shoulders into the shoulder of Sting. Douglas shoots him to the ropes and duck down and Sting plants him with a DDT off the rebound! (Cheers!)

    Tony Schiavone: And Sting finally finds the opening he needs!

Douglas staggers out of the corner and Sting gives him a reverse atomic drop and pushes him down on the mat, AND GOES FOR THE ‘SCORPION DEATH LOCK’ but Bam Bam Bigelow jumps on the apron and starts distracting the ref! Sting releases Douglas but now Chris Candido is on the apron but Sting runs up and knocks him off! Sting turns around and Douglas wraps him up for the ‘Franchiser’ but Sting manages to elbow out of it! Douglas goes for a right hand but Sting ducks it and wraps Douglas up, ‘SCORPION DEATH DROP’ ON DOUGLAS! Sting with the cover, 1…2… BIGELOW COMES IN AND STOMPS STING! and the ref calls for the bell!
    Winner: Sting via DQ
    Tony Schiavone: And the Triple Threat are on the attack!

    The Triple Threat start stomping Sting but then suddenly the crowd erupt as Ric Flair runs down the aisle with a chair in his hands! Flair climbs in the ring AND DECKS BIGELOW! Douglas and Candido escape and now Flair stands besides Sting looking on

    Thunder Preview


    Coming off of the Pay Per View, things are being shook up in World Championship Wrestling. Ric Flair and Shane Douglas especially are without question in the race for being the rivalry of the year as they have continued to be at each others throats. It was at the Pay Per View that the Main Event went to a time limit draw, despite Douglas’ claims that he had Ric Flair beat. Regardless of his opinion, the time limit had indeed expired and the match was declared a draw, with Ric Flair reclaiming the World Heavyweight Title. It was then on Nitro that Shane Douglas challenged Flair to another title match, which Shane McMahon personally declared that they will in fact have another title match, but that it was scheduled for next week. As of this moment, neither Flair or Douglas are scheduled to appear at Thunder this week, so the animosity between these two will in fact have to be seen next week on Nitro.

    As rivalries continue on, one rivalry that is certainly heating up is the rivalry between Tommy Dreamer and Bob ‘Hardcore’ Holly. These two beat the living hell out of each other at Bash At The Beach and it was Tommy Dreamer that came out victorious and retained his Hardcore Title but Holly would have his revenge so to speak the following night on Nitro where he viciously attacked friend and mentor Terry Funk backstage leaving him bloodied mess. Tommy Dreamer is expected to give a statement tomorrow night on Thunder addressing Terry Funk and also addressing his attacker. Will Holly be present?

    After beating Chuck Palumbo and Sean O’Hare at Bash At The Beach, Totally Buff have decided that they will cash in their opportunity at a Tag Team Title match at the champs Kronik tomorrow night on Thunder. Kronik who are also coming off of a win against the Mamalukes have said that they have no problems defending the belts against Totally Buff and they remain absolutely confident in retaining the titles. Totally Buff have YET to win the Tag Team gold and are said to be very determined to finally accomplish that feet that has eluded them since they began teaming regularly. Will they be able to capture the belts? Or will Kronik continue to remain dominant?

    Kevin Nash has been a bit heated as of late. He challenged Mike Awesome to a match at Bash At The Beach, which Mike Awesome defeated Nash in controversial fashion, and with that, Nash made it clear to Jimmy Hart on Nitro that he wants him to get any three of his associates to meet himself, Diamond Dallas Page and Goldberg tomorrow night on Thunder. After a few days, Jimmy Hart has determined that it will be Malice, Brian Knobbs and Mike Awesome that will square off with the InSiders and Goldberg. But the question remains, is the ring big enough to hold all of these individuals?

    Re: World Championship Wrestling 2001 and Beyond

    Nitro Review

    Flair giving Douglas credit was kind of cheap to me. Flair knows a second longer and he would not have the title and Douglas has every right to demand at least a rematch. Shane O Mac comes out to ruin the chances of a remacth tonight, next week will have to do although I thought the match belonged on pay-per-view to be honest. But I reckon Sting will face the winner of the title match at the next pay-per-view.


    Great start to the night as Flair wins by DQ, personally I would have had Flair win by tapout and then have the beatdown and save but Sting comes to Flair's rescue and I bet it won't be the last time we see Triple Threat on the attack tonight.


    Poor Jimmy Hart lol I expect Awesome and Malice to be two of the three, but the faces are without doubt winning that one. I'm hoping Mike Awesome goes over Nash though, Awesome had so much wasted potential, could have been the greatest mobile big man in the business if utilised correctly.


    The Chavo/Nagata beat him to get to me deal is great. Although I do see Nagata eventually eying up the title himself. Which should be brilliant.


    Jason Jett should be an interesting story for him as he never really got off the ground too much in the WCW but he could be a great option in the lower card for you. Got a little confused with the finisher as both men have a Crash Landing finish.


    Very funny back and for between the Holly's. Crash one upped Hardcore but you know HC would just kick his ass if he piped up some more. Was shocked that HC lost to Dreamer, thought he would hold the title a bit longer.


    Good win for Dreamer over Hardcore Jobber To The Stars Crowbar, but the attack on Funk by Holly was the main point of this and it is a good way for Holly to get some momentum back after his loss at the PPV.


    Booker T showing Jarrett he ain't going away anytime soon and a rematch is the right decision I reckon. I think Booker T might actually pick up the win, or Jarrett will cheat hi way to victory. I would love a Booker win though and 3rd match after. Both guys probably waiting in the wings for a future title shot once Flair/Douglas/Sting are done with.


    I don't mind the DQ finish to the main event, but it would have been nice if Flair won the opener clean so both matches did not end in DQ. Maybe we can have a tag team match with Candido/Bigelow against Flair/Sting on Thunder, hype up the big match between Douglas and Flair and start to get Sting into the fray a bit more. I am really enjoying the main event scene and you still have guys like Nash, Jarrett, Booker, Goldberg and Steiner absent from it. Roster is looking strong.


    A very good Nitro off the back of a pay-per-view and I enjoyed the Crusierweight, Hardcore and World title feuds progressing. Keep up the great work Hardcore Jay.

    Re: World Championship Wrestling 2001 and Beyond

    Thanks for the review bro.

    The Crash Landing gimmick is easy to figure out, they both have the Crash Landing name, but Crash has another finisher so I'm gonna make him use that instead :D

    Live From the Rupp Arena in Lexington, Kentucky


    After a brief intro, the camera fades inside the Rupp Arena in Lexington, Kentucky. Fireworks start going off above the ring and the camera pans around the arena showing the hyped up fans that are ready for some good action packed wrestling. After a few moments, the camera pans down to the announcers table where Tony Schiavone and Mike Tenay are standing by


    Tony Schiavone: WELCOME EVERYONE to WCW Thunder LIVE on TBS the Superstation. I’m Tony Schiavone alongside with Mike Tenay and Mike, in just a few more days we are set to see Shane Douglas and Ric Flair lock up once again, the World Heavyweight Title on the line, and the fact that those two are not here tonight says something.

    Mike Tenay: It sure does, Tony. It says that both are staying focused, and both are just more than likely sick and tired of each other. Once these two meet again on Nitro this week, they’re going to be like caged animals.

    Tony Schiavone: But that unfortunately will be on Nitro, right now this is Thunder, the hottest program on Thursday nights. And fans we’ve got a great show for you tonight, go ahead and run down some of what we’re going to be seeing tonight.

    Mike Tenay: Well Tony, we’ve got two title matches on the line tonight. Just booked earlier the other day, Bill DeMott goes one on one and defends his United States Championship against the ‘Natural’ Dustin Rhodes. Shane McMahon felt Rhodes deserving of it thanks to he and his fathers win at Bash At The Beach over the Steiner Brothers. Also, because of their win at Bash At The Beach, Kronik must defend the Tag Team Titles against Totally Buff.

    Tony Schiavone: A championship that has in fact eluded Totally Buff since they’ve been a team here in WCW.

    Mike Tenay: You’re right about that Tony. Also on tap tonight, Evan Karagias will take on Rey Mysterio, and I was told earlier that 3 Count have requested some interview time before the match with Mysterio, so that’s something I think the fans will want to take a break, maybe go get some food or a bathroom break.

    Tony Schiavone: Haha.

    Mike Tenay: Also scheduled tonight, we’ll see the Boogie Knights taking on High Voltage. And in the Main Event, six man tag team action, Goldberg, Kevin Nash and Diamond Dallas Page will team up to face the Hart Family, consisting of Malice, Brian Knobbs and Mike Awesome.

    Tony Schiavone: What a Main Event that’s going to be. I don’t even think the ring can hold all of those guys.

    Mike Tenay: It’s going to be interesting.

    Tony Schiavone: Right now let’s take you to David Penzer for our opening contest!

    The camera fades down to the ring


    ~I’VE GOT A NEW ATTITUDE~


    “New Attitude” starts up and the fans cheer as Jamie Noble and Kash walk out through the curtain and start to head down the aisle


    David Penzer: Ladies and gentlemen this opening contest is scheduled for one fall with a 15 minute time limit. Making their way down the aisle first, from Johnson City, Tennessee… THIS ISSSS KAAAAAASH! And his tag team partner, from Hanover, West Virginia… JAMIEEEEE NOOOOBLE!

    Noble and Kash head down the aisle and slap a few hands along the way before entering the ring. Kash climbs up the turnbuckle and spins his fingers around in the air while Noble climbs up the opposite turnbuckle and raises his arms in victory as the music fades


    “Get Back” starts up and the fans boo as Psychosis and La Parka walk out on stage. La Parka with a chair in hand starts playing it like a guitar while Psychosis heads down the aisle speaking Spanish into the camera



    David Penzer: Their opponents… First from Mexico City, Mexico… LAAAA PARKAAAAAA! And his tag team partner from Tijuana, Mexico… PSYYYYYCHOSIS!

    Psychosis and La Parka climb inside the ring and La Parka sets the chair in the middle of the ring, shuffles his legs and then stands on the chair and dances while Noble and Kash look on and talk strategy until the music fades


    Kash/Noble vs. La Parka/Psychosis


    The bell rings and Kash and La Parka start things off. Kash and La Parka lock up and La Parka takes Kash down with an arm drag. La Parka gets to his feet and starts shuffling for a moment but now Kash runs up and kicks him in the gut and nails him with a few right hands and some chops. Kash shoots him to the ropes and La Parka rebounds and ducks a clothesline. La Parka bounces off the ropes and Kash leaps up and connects with a headscissors! La Parka gets to his feet and runs up but Kash sidesteps him. La Parka bounces off and counters a move with another arm drag. Kash gets to his feet and runs up sidestepping La Parka this time. La Parka catches Kash off the rebound and lifts him up but Kash counters with a hurricanrana! (Cheers!) Kash gets to his feet and gets the fans hyped as La Parka rolls to the outside. La Parka gets back on the apron and Kash comes after him but La Parka drops off the apron and pulls Kash out of the ring and starts punching him. La Parka sends Kash hard into the guardrail and now Psychosis leaps off the apron and connects with an axe handle. Jamie Noble runs over and starts hammering away on Psychosis and tosses him in the ring. Noble comes in and nails Psychosis with a few right hands and shoots him to the ropes and Psychosis dives to the outside on Kash and La Parka! Everyone starts getting up and now Noble climbs up the turnbuckle AND LEAPS OFF WITH A HIGH PLANCHA ONTO EVERYONE! (Cheers!)

    Tony Schiavone: The high risk moves are starting early!

    Mike Tenay: Yeah usually we’d see Kash hit a big aerial maneuver to the outside but La Parka managed to pull him out of the ring to escape that. But it’s still early so you never know what may happen.

    Kash is back up and now grabs La Parka and tosses him in the ring. Kash leaps on the apron and now goes up the turnbuckle. La Parka gets up and Kash hits him with a missile dropkick! Kash covers, 1…2, La Parka kicks out. Kash takes him to the corner and tags out to Noble. Noble comes in and they shoot La Parka to the ropes and Kash hits a drop toe hold and Noble bounces off the ropes and hits a dropkick to the side of the head! Noble covers, 1…2, La Parka kicks out. Noble picks La Parka up but La Parka rakes him in the eyes and takes him to the corner and rams him head first into the boot of Psychosis and makes the tag. Psychosis comes in and hammers Noble in the corner and now brings him out and shoots him to the ropes. Noble rebounds and Psychosis takes him out with a leg lariat! Psychosis covers, 1…2, Noble kicks out. Psychosis picks Noble up and takes him to the corner and chops him a few times and makes the tag to La Parka. Psychosis and La Parka shoot Noble to the ropes and give him a double back elbow and now La Parka hits him with a senton and covers, 1…2, Noble kicks out. La Parka gets to his feet and stomps Noble a few times and now picks him up and shoots him to the ropes. Noble bounces off and ducks a clothesline from La Parka. La Parka turns around and Noble kicks him in the gut and nails him with a DDT and both are down!

    Tony Schiavone: And a big DDT from Noble and he desperately needs to make the tag!

    Noble and La Parka are both down but now answers the count of 6 and start moving. La Parka and Noble get to their feet and now Noble goes for a kick but La Parka catches the boot. Noble hops around for a second and then hits an enziguri! (Cheers!) Noble now leaps over and makes the tag! Kash climbs on the apron and leaps off catching La Parka with a huricanrana! La Parka rolls in the corner and stands up and Psychosis makes the blind tag. Kash runs up and leaps on La Parka in the corner but Psychosis punches him off! Kash hits the canvas hard and now Psychosis comes in and stomps Kash a few times and now picks him up and shoots him to the corner. Kash hits hard and Psychosis follows up with a hard clothesline. Psychosis turns him around and now picks him up and sits him on the turnbuckle. Psychosis climbs up and now turns around and positions Kash up in a crucifix hold! Psychosis now tosses him off, BUT KASH COUNTERS AND GIVES PSYCHOSIS A HURRICANRANA OFF THE TURNBUCKLE! (Holy Shit! Holy Shit!) Kash makes the cover and Noble incapacitates La Parka, 1…2…3!
    Winners: Kash/Jamie Noble via pinfall
    Tony Schiavone: WHAT A COUNTER FROM KASH TO PICK UP THE WIN!

    Mike Tenay: Tony, Psychosis went for that big splash mountain powerbomb maneuver, and Kash had it scouted. I can’t BELIEVE I just saw that out of him. Big win for this young tag team.

    Tony Schiavone: And right now, let’s take you to our first commercial break of the evening, STAY WITH US!


    (COMMERCIAL)



    The camera fades back inside the arena


    Tony Schiavone: Alright welcome back fans, and before we get to our next match, let’s take you to ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund standing by with Tommy Dreamer. Gene, take it away.

    Backstage


    The camera fades backstage where you see Tommy Dreamer standing by with ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund. Tommy is clenching his hands together, cracking his knuckles


    Gene Okerlund: Alright, thank you Tony. Tommy Dreamer, you mentioned just a few hours after Nitro went off the air, that you wanted some interview time tonight, well this is your time. But if I may ask, how it Terry Funk doing?

    Tommy Dreamer: ‘Mean’ Gene… You’ve been around this business for many years. So you know Terry Funk. He’s old and senile. The man can get the living hell beaten out of him, and he’ll still get up and keep things moving. Terry was beaten the hell out of by Bob Holly on Nitro, and I found him laying in a puddle of his own blood. Docs checked him out and he’s a little loopy, but he’ll be fine. I talked to him about an hour ago and he said he’s sitting at home on the ranch, drinking a beer, and said he was gonna watch Thunder tonight to here what I had to say.

    Gene Okerlund: Well that’s good news. *To The Camera* Terry, have a few for me, would ya? *To Dreamer* Well now that we’ve got that out of the way, you made mention of Bob Holly beating down Terry on Nitro recently, is that what this interview is for? To address HIM?

    Tommy Dreamer: That’s right, Gene. *To The Camera* Bob Holly. I know you’re watching. So I’m gonna make this short and sweet. I know you beat down Terry on Nitro because you wanted to get to me. Well, mission accomplished. This Monday on Nitro, I’ll put the belt on the line, wherever you want to do it. In the ring. Back here in the locker room. Parking lot. Doesn’t matter. I’m not challenging you to a match. I’m challenging you to a fight. Because I’m gonna do to you, what you did to Terry.

    Dreamer stares into the camera and walks off


    Gene Okerlund: Back to you guys.

    The camera fades back inside the arena


    Tony Schiavone: Thank you Gene. And did you see the look in the eyes of Tommy Dreamer when he was addressing Bob Holly?

    Mike Tenay: Oh without question, Tommy Dreamer wants a fight with Bob Holly. Holly is a marked man.

    Tony Schiavone: Let’s go to the ring for our next match of the evening.

    ~DANGER, HIGH VOLTAGE~


    “High Voltage” starts up and the fans cheer as Kenny Kaos and Robbie Rage walk out on stage with their arms raised in victory. Rage and Kaos grab each other and start shaking their heads and screaming before they head down the aisle


    David Penzer: Ladies and gentlemen this contest is set for one fall with a 15 minute time limit. Introducing first… Robbie Rage… Kenny Kaos… HIGH VOLLLLLTAGE!

    Rage and Kaos head down the aisle and climb in the ring. Rage and Kaos start crisscrossing the ropes and then meet back in the center of the ring and high five each other as the music fades



    ~DISCO FEVER~


    “Disco Fever” starts up and the fans boo as Alex Wright and Disco Inferno walk on stage. Disco starts dancing a bit while Alex Wright just stands there for a moment watching him until suddenly “Sandstorm” by DJ Darude starts up and now Alex Wright starts dancing as Disco watches him


    David Penzer: Their opponents… Alex Wright and the Disco Inferno… THE BOOGIE KNIGHTS!

    The two head down the aisle and trade off theme music’s while doing so. Wright and Disco climb inside the ring and start getting ready as the music fades


    High Voltage vs. Boogie Knights


    The bell rings and Wright and Kaos start things off. Kaos and Wright lock up and Wright goes behind Kaos and shoves him off. Kaos turns around and Wright starts dancing and now Kaos runs in and clotheslines him! (Cheers!) Kaos mocks Wright by doing the ‘macarena’ and now Disco comes in and Kaos clotheslines him for good measure! Kaos picks Wright up and shoots him to the corner and runs in with a hard clothesline! Kaos tags in Rage and now Kaos whips Wright to the ropes. Wright bounces off and leaps over a fallen Kaos but Rage hits a slingshot shoulder tackle that nails Wright! Rage covers, 1…2, Wright kicks out. Rage picks up Wright and shoots him to the corner and Wright hits hard and Disco tags himself in. Disco runs in and goes for a clothesline but Rage ducks under it! Disco turns around and Rage whips Disco hard into the corner and Disco squashes Wright! Rage tags in Kaos and now High Voltage start shaking and screaming and now Kaos runs in and splashes the Boogie Knights in the corner! Kaos holds them in the corner and Rage runs in and splashes the Boogie Knights as well! (Cheers!) Rage and Kaos signal to the fans and now Kaos goes to the outside and climbs up the turnbuckle. Rage lifts Disco up on his shoulders, ‘CIRCUIT BREAKER’ (Electric Chair Clothesline) ON DISCO INFERNO! The cover, 1…2…3!
    Winners: High Voltage via ‘Circuit Breaker’
    Tony Schiavone: And how about that one!?

    Mike Tenay: High Voltage just DOMINATED the Boogie Knights!

    Tony Schiavone: And you know they’re so underrated here in WCW, they have been for years. Granted Kenny Kaos was a former Tag Team Champion with Rick Steiner, but you remember also, Rick Steiner CHOSE him to be his partner and just gave him the title, Kaos never helped win it.

    Mike Tenay: Well I’m sure that with his partner Robbie Rage back in the swing of things, they could make some big moves here.

    Tony Schiavone: We’ll be back with more action, RIGHT HERE on TBS, don’t go away!


    (COMMERCIAL)



    The camera fades back on Thunder



    Tony Schiavone: Alright welcome back fans. And as we mentioned earlier, we mentioned that 3 Count has some interview time coming their way… So let’s take you to ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund standing in the ring. Gene.

    In Ring Segment


    The camera fades down to the ring



    Gene Okerlund: Alright thank you Tony. Fans, you know I don’t like to do this to you but if not, I could lose my job. So without further delay… Please welcome my guest at this time… THREE COUNT!

    ~ONE… TWO…. THREEEEEEEE~


    “Dance With 3 Count starts up and the fans boo as Evan Karagias and Shannon Moore walk out on stage with Shannon Moore carrying a trash bag over his shoulder and a broom, with Karagias carrying a trash can and dust pan


    Tony Schiavone: Alright what’s with this?

    Mike Tenay: Certainly not something you see regularly from these two guys.

    3 Count head down the aisle and climb inside the ring and go over to ‘Mean’ Gene as the music fades


    Gene Okerlund: Gentlemen, I think it’s on everybody’s minds at this point, what is the meaning of this? Are you gentlemen doing a little spring, and or summer cleaning?

    Karagias laughs as he puts the trash can down beside him


    Evan Karagias: ‘Mean’ Gene… Ever since we came into WCW… We’ve been taken as a joke. Like all the actual chumps out there in the music world, and I’m talking about the Backstreet Boys… N’sync… 98 Degrees…. All of em. WE’RE the ones that are taken as a joke. Man, they can’t hang with the 3 Count. We out sing em. We out dance em. And I’m willing to bet an entire years pay that we can out wrestle them too. But still, YOU and the rest of WCW, and these people here tonight think that me and Shannon are a joke.

    The fans cheer as 3 Count look on in disgust. ‘Mean’ Gene shrugs his shoulders and smirks


    Gene Okerlund: Well, can’t argue with that logic. But again gentlemen, I ask you what is with the trash can? What’s in the bag?

    Evan Karagias: See Gene. Ever since we became the Cruiserweight Tag Team Champions, we figured that all of you would start taking us a little bit more serious. And all we wanted to do for the last couple times we’ve been out here, was debut our new hit single ‘We Are The Champions.’ Show the world that is sounds better than that garbage Queen did a long time ago. And not ONCE did you let us do it. Well that brings us to tonight. Because Gene, we’re sick and tired of not being able to sing. And more importantly, we’re sick and tired of not being taken serious. So MAYBE this will make you all start taking us a little bit more serious. Shannon, go ahead and dump the bag out.

    Shannon Moore turns the trash bag upside down and broken pieces of gold spill out in the ring



    Gene Okerlund: What in the world?

    Tony Schiavone: THAT GARBAGE LOOKS LIKE THE REMAINS OF THE CRUISERWEIGHT TAG TEAM TITLE BELTS!

    [font=verdana] Mike Tenay: [size=3] THEY DESTROYED THE BELTS?!

    3 Count laugh as Okerlund reaches down and picks up a piece of the remains



    Gene Okerlund: Are you telling me that you DESTROYED the Cruiserweight Tag Team Titles!?

    Evan Karagias: That’s EXACTLY what we’re saying.

    The fans boo


    Evan Karagias: See, we know for a fact that we’re better than any of the cruiserweights in WCW. And when we won the belts, we knew they weren’t going anywhere. And since you people continued to disrespect us. Since you people and the rest of WCW didn’t take us seriously. This is how serious we are. The Cruiserweight Tag Team Titles are GONE! FINISHED! NO MORE! And to prove this. Shannon, let’s pick up the trash.

    Shannon grabs the dust pan and bends down while Karagias takes the broom and sweeps the remains of the belts in the dust pan. Shannon then gets to his feet, holds the dust pan over the trash can and slowly dumps the remains of the belts inside


    Gene Okerlund: This is just down right despicable. Who the hell do you two think you are to disgrace a championship belt like that? You know Shane McMahon is going to be LIVID about this?

    Mike Tenay: Oh I’ll bet he is.

    Evan Karagias: Shane McMahon can be mad all he wants. But bottom line, the belts are gone. We’re the last ever champs in the record books, and I think we even proved that we’re the BEST champs in the record books.

    Gene Okerlund: THE HELL YOU ARE!

    Tony Schiavone: YOU TELL EM GENE!

    Suddenly Karagias grabs ‘Mean’ Gene by the color and he and Moore start talking trash to him when suddenly the Filthy Animals rush down the aisle and jump in the ring and start brawling!


    Tony Schiavone: AND HERE WE GO!

    The Animals and 3 Count continue to brawl but after a few seconds, 3 Count see their opportunity and bail out of the ring and leap over the guardrail and start making their way through the fans leaving Kidman and Mysterio in the ring. Kidman kicks the trash can over in anger and now both the Animals look on at 3 Count who escape through the fans


    Tony Schiavone: Well I just can’t believe what we’ve just seen. The money and time spent to make those belts, all thrown away, no pun intended.

    Mike Tenay: And like Gene said, Shane McMahon more than likely will not be too pleased with what just happened.

    Tony Schiavone: And you know Evan Karagias was supposed to meet Rey Mysterio here tonight, and I don’t even think THAT’S about to happen. So we apologize to you fans that were hoping to see that match, 3 Count just high tailed it out of here so that match between Karagias and Mysterio will not be happening. Again we want to apologize for that. However if Shane McMahon is watching, I do believe that 3 Count have to pay the consequences of their actions here tonight.

    Mike Tenay: Absolutely.

    Tony Schiavone: Right now let’s take you to Scott Hudson standing by with ‘Big Poppa Pump’ Scott Steiner.

    Scott Hudson: Thanks, Tony. ‘Big Poppa Pump’ if I-

    Scott Steiner: SHUT YOUR MOUTH LITTLE MAN! The man with the largest arms in the world is gonna talk! Because I know what you’re gonna ask. You’re gonna ask how I feel about me and my brother losing to those hillbilly’s at the Pay Per View aren’t ya?

    Scott Hudson: Well… Yes.

    Scott Steiner: Yeah I thought so. Little man, I want you, those hillbillies, and the rest of the world to know that what happened at the Pay Per View was just by dumb luck. Got that! It was by dumb luck, and it’ll never happen again. I’ll be DAMNED if it happens again. Because any other time, me and my brother would beat the hell out of those two any day of the week, and-

    Steiner pauses in mid sentence, looking off camera. The camera pans out a bit and you can see Sting smirking at what was just said


    Scott Steiner: Something funny to you?

    Sting: As a matter of fact, yeah, something is funny. Hearing you run that mouth of yours. That’s funny. Come on Scott, you guys lost, plain and simple. Dusty and Dustin were just better than the both of you that night. And sure, you may beat them here and there a few times, but like it or not, they can, and WILL do it again in the future. Just accept it.

    Steiner chuckles


    Scott Steiner: Accept it? You know Sting, I got something for you to accept. A match tonight. Me and you.

    Sting looks intrigued and gets in Steiner’s face


    Sting: You wanna go?

    Scott Steiner: You heard me didn’t ya?

    Sting smiles and pats Steiner on the shoulder. Steiner looks at his hand for a second with a smug look on his face and then looks back at Sting

    Mike Tenay: And right now DDP and Goldberg are getting the fans to rally behind Nash. Nash needs to make a tag!

    Nash and Malice start crawling for their respective corners and Nash makes the tag to DDP as Malice tags out to Awesome! Awesome comes in and misses a clothesline and DDP starts jabbing Awesome and shoots him to the ropes and gives him a big dropkick that staggers him and he goes through the ropes to the outside! Knobbs comes in the ring and misses a clothesline on DDP, AND GETS A ‘SPEAR’ FROM GOLDBERG! (Cheers!) Malice gets back to his feet and now Nash runs up and gives him a ‘Big Boot’ that rocks him! Nash and Goldberg run up and give Malice a double clothesline over the top to the outside! Nash goes to the outside as does Goldberg leaving DDP in the ring. Awesome starts climbing back in the ring and DDP nails him with a few right hands. DDP brings Awesome in and sets up for the ‘Diamond Cutter’ but Awesome shoves him off! DDP bounces off the ropes and there’s a big boot from Awesome! (Oh!) Awesome grabs DDP and sets him up, ‘AWESOME BOMB’ (Sitout Powerbomb) ON DDP, 1…2…3!
    Winners: The Hart Family via ‘Awesome Bomb’
    Tony Schiavone: OHHH THEY WON IT!

    Mike Tenay: DDP tried to go for the ‘Diamond Cutter’ but Awesome countered it, gave him a big boot, and an ‘Awesome Bomb’ later was all that was left!

    The Hart Family retreat up the entrance ramp while Goldberg and Kevin Nash check on DDP who’s still feeling the effects of what just happened


    Tony Schiavone: And who knows WHAT Jimmy Hart or even Mike Awesome has to say about this. Fans we’re out of time, WE’LL SEE YOU ON NITRO!

    The camera fades with Awesome holding up the Television Title and gloating as the InSiders and Goldberg look on from the ring

    Nitro Preview


    This week on Nitro, the anticipated rematch between Shane Douglas and Ric Flair for the World Heavyweight Title finally happens. It was last week on Nitro that Shane McMahon announced that because they went to a time limit draw at the Pay Per View, they would meet on Nitro in the Main Event and that the title would be on the line. He would then give both of them warm up matches, with Ric Flair taking on Chris Candido that ended in a disqualification when Shane Douglas interfered. And Shane Douglas would face Sting in the Main Event, which ended with Sting picking up a DQ win when the Triple Threat interfered. It’s been a week later, and both Douglas and Flair are itching to get back in the ring to tear each other apart. Will Douglas finally accomplish his ambition to become the World Heavyweight Champion? Or will the ‘Nature Boy’ continue his dominance as the 17th time World Heavyweight Champion.

    In a recent shock in World Championship Wrestling, 3 Count came out on Thunder this past week, carrying the remains of the Cruiserweight Tag Team Titles in pieces. 3 Count proclaimed that they were sick and tired of not being taken seriously, and furthermore not being taken seriously when they won the titles. So with the intension of making the fans and the WCW believe they are in fact serious at what they do, they completely destroyed their belts, dumped them in a trash can, and proclaimed that they are the FINAL Cruiserweight Tag Team Champions in the WCW, signifying that the belts are no more. It was there that the former champions the Filthy Animals, which Rey Mysterio was scheduled to have a match with Evan Karagias, came out and ran 3 Count out of the arena. When asked to comment on the situation, Shane McMahon in a very heated tone in his voice, stated that he will address 3 Count this Monday on Nitro, and that this kind of thing will NOT be tolerated. It more than so seems that 3 Count is in hot water with the President of WCW.

    Totally Buff cashed in their chance at becoming the WCW Tag Team Champions as they squared off with Kronik on Thunder, however they once again came up short as Kronik managed to defeat them to hang onto the titles. Totally Buff were not too thrilled about the defeat and have said that they will express how they feel tomorrow night on Nitro.

    After the brutal attack on Terry Funk at the hands of Bob ‘Hardcore’ Holly. Tommy Dreamer personally challenged Holly on Thunder. He made it very clear that he would put the belt up for grabs, it wasn’t long before Holly reached out to WCW Officials and told them that he accepts the challenge, and that he will meet Tommy Dreamer in the ring, or wherever he may be, on Nitro. Will Tommy Dreamer be able to defeat Holly once again after just beating him at the Pay Per View? Will he get revenge for Terry Funk? Or will Holly finally accomplish what he came here to do, and become the WCW Hardcore Champion.

    It appears that Jeff Jarrett still hasn’t heard the last of Booker T. It was last week that Booker T came out and told Jarrett flat out that even though Jarrett won at the Pay Per View, in no way shape or form did Jarrett pin him or make him submit. After a few seconds later, Jarrett tried to attack Booker T only to receive a ‘Book End’ for his troubles. Further into the week it was made official by Shane McMahon, these two will meet in the ring tomorrow night on Nitro.

    Live From The Fleet Center in Boston, Massachusetts


    After the video intro the camera fades inside the Fleet Center in Boston, Massachusetts where fireworks start going off. The camera pans around the arena at the thousands of fans cheering before finally stopping off at the announcers table where Tony Schiavone and Mike Tenay are standing by


    Tony Schiavone: WELCOME TO THE FLEET CENTER IN BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS! WELCOME TO MONDAY NITRO, LIVE ON TNT! Hello fans, I’m Tony Schiavone alongside with Mike Tenay. Mike, tonight in the Main Event, we see the rematch between the ‘Franchise’ Shane Douglas and the ‘Nature Boy’ Ric Flair, the World Heavyweight Title is on the line!

    Mike Tenay: Well we’ve seen many rematches between these two, but this one is different. This time around, the intensity level is way high for the ‘Franchise’ Shane Douglas. He’s made it clear to everyone that he went the distance with Ric Flair at the Pay Per View, and he also made it clear that he was literally a second away from becoming the World Heavyweight Champion when the time limit expired. Make no mistake about it Tony, Shane Douglas has been waiting impatiently for tonight.

    Tony Schiavone: As have we. Also scheduled tonight ladies and gentlemen, Jeff Jarrett and Booker T square off in the ring yet again. You could cut the tension between those two with a knife. It was last week that Booker T made it clear that Jeff Jarrett did not pin him or make him submit at the Pay Per View, and from there, Jarrett tried to attack him only to receive the ‘Book End’ for his troubles.

    Mike Tenay: Also set for tonight, we have Shane McMahon to address the situation regarding the, I guess you could call them the former, or rather the LAST Cruiserweight Tag Team Champions, 3 Count.

    Tony Schiavone: I’m still in shock as I’m sure you are and the rest of the world are in shock at what 3 Count did to the Cruiserweight Tag Team Titles. There has never been anybody in World Championship Wrestling that would just desecrate a championship like they did. But the damage is done, and now they must suffer the consequences.

    Mike Tenay: And what about Tommy Dreamer and Bob Holly? Tommy Dreamer made the challenge, Holly answered and those two will face off with one another tonight with the Hardcore Title on the line.

    Tony Schiavone: All this and more coming your way later on tonight, right now let’s go to David Penzer for our first match of the night HERE ON NITRO!

    Tony Schiavone: And the Jung Dragons have things going their way and they almost took Styles’ head off with that double bicycle kick!

    Mike Tenay: The Jung Dragons certainly have been improving here as of late but make no mistake about it the team of Air Raid are improving as well trying to make their mark here in WCW.

    Tony Schiavone: It’s like a car wreck out there!

    Mike Tenay: Big somersault plancha to the outside from Air Styles, he even cleared the top rope!

    The Dragons and Air Raid finally get back to their feet and Yang takes Paris and slides him in the ring. Yang gets on the apron and Paris gets to his feet, and Yang hits a springboard dropkick! (Cheers!) Yang with the cover, 1…2… Paris gets the shoulder up! Yang picks Paris up and shoots him to the corner. Yang runs up and runs up Paris and hits a backflip off of him. Paris comes out of the corner and Yang hits a big enziguri! Yang now signals he’s going up top. Yang climbs up top, ‘YANG TIME’ (Corkscrew Moonsault) MISSES! Yang hits hard as Paris rolls away and now Paris makes the tag to Styles! Styles jumps in and Hayashi runs in and goes for a right hand but Styles blocks it and starts hammering away at Hayashi. Styles shoots him to the ropes but Hayashi reverses. Styles leaps on the second rope, ‘STYLIN DDT’ (Springboard Moonsault Reverse DDT) ON HAYASHI! (Cheers!) Styles gets up and screams getting the fans pumped but now Yang decks him from behind. Yang shoots Styles to the ropes and ducks down for a back body drop but Styles kicks him in the face!

    Winners: Air Raid via ‘Styles Clash’
    Tony Schiavone: And Air Raid pick up the win! What a match!

    Mike Tenay: We saw some great offensive and aerial maneuvers from both teams. But the team that honestly impressed me the most was Air Raid, particularly Air Styles!

    Tony Schiavone: Well there’s no doubt in my mind that if the Cruiserweight Tag Team Titles were still around, THAT TEAM would be deserving of them from what we saw tonight. And speaking of the Cruiserweight Tag Team Titles, it’s my understanding that Shane McMahon will be coming out here in just a few minutes! Don’t go away fans, stay tuned!

    The camera fades back inside the arena


    In Ring Segment


    ~HERE COMES THE MONEY~


    “Here Comes The Money” starts up and the fans cheer as Shane McMahon walks out on stage and starts shuffling his feet and shadowboxing. McMahon heads down the aisle and climbs inside the ring, grabbing a microphone from David Penzer as the music fades


    Shane McMahon: HELLO BOSTON!

    The fans cheer


    Shane McMahon: First and foremost let me ask this question, what’d you think of the opening match?

    The fans cheer


    Shane McMahon: That’s what I like to hear! Now there’s been a lot going on as of late. First and foremost I want to address a situation going on between two of our biggest talents. I’m talking about the Television Champion, Mike Awesome. And ‘Big Sexy’ Kevin Nash!

    The fans cheer at the sound of Nash’ name


    Shane McMahon: Now at the Pay Per View, you saw Mike Awesome actually sneak away with a victory. Then, on Thursday night you saw a great 6 man tag team match that was won by Mike Awesome. And you know something, I think there needs to be a match between Mike Awesome and Kevin Nash what do you think?

    The fans cheer


    Shane McMahon: So do I. So this Thursday night on Thunder, it’s gonna be Kevin Nash versus Mike Awesome, non title, in the Main Event!

    The fans cheer


    Shane McMahon: And if Kevin Nash wins. Believe me, he WILL get a title shot against Awesome at a later date. Now then. I know they’re in the back and are listening to this. Let me send a message to the team, of 3 Count.

    The fans boo


    Shane McMahon: I gotta tell ya. I’ve been in this business a long time. I have NEVER seen ANYBODY disgrace a championship belt like I saw you two do last week. I am SICKENED and more importantly I am EMBARRASSED that you two would do such a thing and disrespect not only a title, but the company as well. Now I want to make one thing clear and that is the fact that because of what 3 Count did, at this time, the Cruiserweight Tag Team Titles ARE not instated anymore… But because of their actions, I’m issuing that 3 Count BOTH pay a fine of TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS EACH FOR DESTRUCTION OF PROPERTY!

    The fans cheer


    Tony Schiavone: OH YEAH! HOW ABOUT THAT!

    Mike Tenay: Well there’s some justice served.

    Shane McMahon: And furthermore, I am ORDERING 3 Count to come down to the ring after this little promo is over with, and face the Filthy Animals. So 3 Count, you have three days to pay your fine, and you’ve got 3 minutes to get ready, and as an old friend of mine once said… AND THAT’S, AN ORDER!

    “Here Comes The Money” starts playing again as Shane McMahon starts to take his leave


    Tony Schiavone: Well 3 Count have to pay a fine of ten thousand dollars each, AND they have to face off with the Filthy Animals in just a few moments. I’d consider that some justice, DON’T GO AWAY FANS WE’LL BE BACK!


    (COMMERCIAL)



    The camera fades back on Nitro with 3 Count getting inside the ring


    Tony Schiavone: Alright fans, and there you see the two men who are definitely in some hot water with the President of WCW, Shane McMahon. 3 Count must not only pay a fine of ten thousand dollars each, but they also have to go up against the Filthy Animals.

    ~FILTHY… DIRTY… NASTY~


    “Filthy Dirty Nasty” starts up and the fans cheer as they await the arrival of the Filthy Animals


    David Penzer: And their opponents… Billy Kidman… Rey Mysterio… THE FILTHY ANIMALLLLLLS!

    After about a minute, the Animals are still a no show. 3 Count stand in the ring wondering what’s going on as the music fades


    Tony Schiavone: Well the Animals aren’t showing up, Mike?

    Mike Tenay: I don’t know what to make of it Tony.

    Tony Schiavone: Well 3 Count are in the ring and look at this, they’re saying something to the referee…

    ~FILTHY… DIRTY… NASTY~


    “Filthy Dirty Nasty” starts up again and the fans still continue to cheer as they await the Filthy Animals


    David Penzer: And THEIR OPPONENTS… Billy Kidman… Rey Mysterio… THE FILTHY ANIMALLLLLLS!

    The fans continue to wait but the Animals are still a now show. The music cuts off after another minute and now 3 Count are standing in the ring impatiently and talking to David Penzer and now the referee. After a minute, the referee walks up to David Penzer and starts talking to him


    David Penzer: Ladies and gentlemen… I have just been informed by referee Scott Dickinson… If the Filthy Animals do NOT come down to the ring by the count of ten… They WILL be disqualified!

    The fans boo as the ref starts the count


    David Penzer: TEN…. NINE… EIGHT… SEVEN… SIX… FIVE… FOUR…

    3 Count now start counting along with Penzer


    David Penzer: THREE… TWO…. ONE…

    The fans boo as 3 Count start celebrating


    David Penzer: Ladies and gentlemen, your winners as a result of a disqualification… 3 COUNT!

    The fans continue to boo as 3 Count high five each other and hug before exiting the ring and walking back up the aisle


    Tony Schiavone: Now there is something going on h- wait a second, I’m getting word something’ going on backstage, let’s get a camera back there…

    The camera fades backstage where you see Konnan and Tygress screaming for help. After a few seconds, the camera spots Billy Kidman and Rey Mysterio laying on the floor looking to be beaten up. The camera zooms in on their faces and you can see them wearing smeared lipstick all over the faces


    Tony Schiavone: THAT’S WHY THEY DIDN’T SHOW UP! 3 COUNT AMBUSHED EM FROM BEHIND!

    Mike Tenay: You’ve gotta be kidding me! 3 Count have made them into teeny boppers!

    Tony Schiavone: Ladies and gentlemen, we need to go to commercial. Someone help those two!


    (COMMERCIAL)



    The camera fades back on Nitro and Totally Buff are making their way to the ring


    Tony Schiavone: Welcome back fans, and I’m being told that 3 Count have left the building. Can you believe what just happened?

    Mike Tenay: No I can’t, Tony. And this is all because 3 Count are tired of being disrespected and not taken seriously. Well when we see stuff like what we saw on Thunder and what we just saw now, HOW CAN you respect those two?

    Tony Schiavone: Well right now, Totally Buff are coming down the aisle now, they’re not on our format sheet. So this should be interesting.

    In Ring Segment


    Totally Buff and Liz climb inside the ring and Luger grabs a microphone from David Penzer


    Lex Luger: Well I think it’s pretty obvious right now, that there’s something very wrong with what you see in this ring. You’ve got the most gorgeous woman, not just in WCW but in the wrestling business as a whole in the ring… And you’ve got two of the greatest athletes, with the greatest bodies that anybody has ever laid their eyes on standing in the ring… But there’s STILL something wrong. And what’s wrong with this picture, is the fact that we don’t have the WCW World Tag Team Titles around our waists!

    The fans boo


    Lex Luger: We BEAT Chuck Palumbo and Sean O’Hare at the Pay Per View, WE EARNED the right to face Kronik for the titles. WE SHOULD BE the WCW Tag Team Champions, BUT ONCE AGAIN, we don’t have the belts. NOW WHY IS THAT!?

    Luger and Buff look on at the fans who continuously boo them



    Tony Schiavone: Well it’s obvious they lost.

    Lex Luger: The reason that we’re not the champions is pretty simple. It’s NOT because we lost the match with Kronik.

    Mike Tenay: It’s not?

    Lex Luger: The reason why we’re not the champions… Is because there is a CONSPIRACY going on here in WCW! THAT’S THE REASON! Call it an inside job. Call it politics. Call it whatever you want. THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER is that there is a conspiracy going on here that are preventing myself and Buff Bagwell at becoming the Tag Team Champions. AND MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT, we’re going to do whatever it takes to not only BREAK THIS CONSPIRACY, but we’re going to expose it to the world. And when we find out what this conspiracy is, legal action will be taking place. And THAT’S a promise…

    The fans boo as Luger and Buff start shouting at the fans


    Tony Schiavone: You’ve gotta be kidding me.

    Mike Tenay: These two egos are so thick you could cut em with a knife!

    ~FUHGETABOUTIT~


    Tony Schiavone: Oh what’s this!? The Mamalukes!?

    The fans cheer as The Mamalukes walk out on stage with Big Vito carrying a microphone


    Big Vito: Hey, pretty boy. Yo, me and Johnny was talking in the back and we figure we come out here and let you two in on a little secret. Hey, no offence, but yo, there ain’t no conspiracy against yous guys.

    Lex Luger: IT IS A CONSPIRACY!

    Johnny The Bull grab the microphone


    Johnny The Bull: Hey, pally… Look, there ain’t no conspiracy against yous guys winning the belts… Yo, not for nuttin, yeah yous two are big and strong and all that. But yo, there’s no conspiracy. The reason why yous guys aren’t the champs. Pretty obvious. It’s cuz you suck.

    The fans cheer as Luger and Buff become irate and start mouthing off from in the ring


    Buff Bagwell: WE DON’T SUCK! WHO THE HELL DO YOU TWO THINK YOU ARE! YOU WANT TO COME DOWN AND FIND OUT WHO SUCKS! YOU WANT A MATCH WITH US RIGHT NOW! WE’LL SHOW YOU WHO SUCKS!

    Vito and The Bull look at each other and smirk


    Johnny The Bull: Ay, fuhgetaboutit.

    Johnny The Bull drops the microphone and now he and Big Vito start heading down the aisle to a chorus of cheers


    Tony Schiavone: OH MY WE’VE GOT AN IMPROMPTU MATCH ABOUT TO TAKE PLACE, STAY WITH US FANS!


    (COMMERCIAL)



    The camera fades back into the arena with Big Vito being held in a rear chinlock by Buff Bagwell


    Totally Buff vs. The Mamalukes


    Buff holds Vito in a rear chinlock but now Vito starts getting back to his feet and gives Bagwell a few elbow shots to break the hold. Vito nails Bagwell with a few right hands and now shoots him to the ropes and ducks down. Bagwell bounces off the ropes and kicks Vito in the face! Vito pops up and Bagwell lifts him up for a slam but Vito squirms out of it and lands behind his back and rolls him up, 1…2, Bagwell kicks out. Bagwell and Vito get to their feet and Bagwell misses a clothesline and Vito tags in Johnny The Bull! JTB leaps in the ring and clotheslines Bagwell!

JTB picks Bagwell up and Bagwell rakes him in the eyes and now takes him to the corner and tags out to Luger. Luger comes in and stomps JTB in the ribs. Luger puts JTB in the corner and starts stomping him. Luger grabs JTB and now gives him a big hip toss out of the corner and JTB lands hard. JTB gets back to his feet and Luger runs up and nails him with a big clothesline and goes for the cover, 1…2, JTB kicks out. Luger locks JTB in an armbar and now Vito starts getting the fans hyped.

    Tony Schiavone: And now Luger in control over Johnny The Bull and Vito is getting the fans to rally!

    Backstage


    The camera fades back on Nitro, backstage where you can see Dusty and Dustin Rhodes walking around the hallway when Bill DeMott walks up to them


    Bill DeMott: Hey, Dusty, Dustin, I been trying to look all over for ya.

    Dustin Rhodes: Looking for us? For what?

    Bill DeMott: Look guys, I just wanted to say how sorry I was for what happened on Thunder last week. That’s NOT how I wanted things to go. And I just wanted to apologize.

    Dusty Rhodes: Whoa, whoa, Billy baby, everything is copasetic. We know it wasn’t your fault.

    Bill DeMott: You sure? Cuz look guys, Rick Steiner had no business out there. He screwed you and he knocked me out too. I mean look, to make it up to you I can always go to McMahon and get a rematch.

    Dustin Rhodes: Hey man, everything is fine. We know it wasn’t your fault. Believe me Rick Steiner is just as big as a pain in the ass like his brother.

    Bill DeMott: So we’re good?

    Dustin Rhodes: Absolutely. Don’t worry about it.

    Bill DeMott: Alright, thank you guys. Listen if you need anything let me know, alright?

    Dustin Rhodes: We will.

    Bill DeMott shakes Dusty and Dustin’s hand and walks off as the camera fades back inside the arena


    Tony Schiavone: Well it’s good to know that Dustin and Dusty Rhodes don’t hold Bill DeMott to blame for what happened last week during their match.

    Mike Tenay: Well it was a great contest and great wrestling display by both individuals, and had it not had been for Rick Steiner, who knows who would’ve won without the outside interference. But Rick Steiner came in, attacked Dustin Rhodes, then attacked Bill DeMott as well but because of the ongoing rivalry with Dustin Rhodes, he placed DeMott on top of him for the three count.

    Tony Schiavone: Well we know that the rivalry between the Steiners’ albeit Rick Steiner and the Rhodes family will come to a halt at some point, but who knows when that will be. Right now fans, let’s take you to ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund, standing by with the ‘Nature Boy’ Ric Flair!

    Backstage


    The camera fades backstage where you see ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund standing in the locker room with Ric Flair by his side. Flair wearing an old 4 Horseman T-shirt holds the World Heavyweight Championship around his shoulder and smiling


    Gene Okerlund: Thank you Tony. ‘Nature Boy’ Ric Flair… It’s been a long week for you, but tonight, you will step in the ring with the ‘Franchise’ Shane Douglas one more time. And your World Heavyweight Title is on the line. Last week you squared off with Chris Candido in a warm up match that was interrupted by the Triple Threat, tell us ‘Nature Boy’ are you ready for what’s about to happen later on tonight?

    Ric Flair: You know ‘Mean’ Gene. This whole week, I’ve had fans come up to me, and each and every one of em said; ‘Nature Boy,’ can you keep going with Shane Douglas? Can you keep fighting Shane Douglas and the Triple Threat? Are you able to keep the 16 pounds of gold around your waist?’ And Gene, each and every single time someone asked me those types of questions, the answers always been the same… YES I CAN, BECAUSE I’M THE ‘NAAAAAATURE BOY!’ ‘WOOOOOO!’ SHANE DOUGLAS! Last week you saved your buddy Chris Candido from me breaking his leg when I had him in the ‘Figure 4.’ Then, you and your buddies tried to hurt the ‘Stinger’ in the Main Event, but you forgot that I was still in the building. Now I have no doubt in my mind, the Triple Threat is going to more than likely get involved tonight, but that’s all well and fine because I’m used to it by now, and I can sense just when they’re going to come down to that ring. Let me set the stage for you. We’re going to wrestle… We’re going to sweat. Shane Douglas you’re going to beat the hell out of me and I’m going to beat the hell out of you. But at some point… At some point you’re gonna mess up, and it’s gonna be time for me to slap on the ‘Figure 4,’ AND THAT’S when the Triple Threat is gonna come out. So what I’m gonna do, is I’m gonna lay off you for a minute, take out Bigelow, take out Candido, maybe I’ll even take that blonde bimbo wife of Candido’s ‘WOOO!’ And then Shane Douglas! Then I’m gonna come back, slap on the ‘Figure 4’ and when it’s all said and done. I’m walking out of the Fleet Center just as I came walking in, the World Heavyweight Champion. ‘WOOOOOOO!’

    Gene Okerlund: THANK YOU ‘NATURE BOY’ STICK AROUND FANS!

    Tony Schiavone: And we’ve got a new champion! Bob Holly has defeated Tommy Dreamer and is the NEW Hardcore Champion. And Dreamer is hurt badly.

    Mike Tenay: Dreamer had no chance of kicking out of that. He must’ve fallen 10 maybe 15 feet to the floor, crashing through a few tables. There was just no way he could do it. And my hats off to him, he put up a hell of a fight.

    WCW Saturday Night Returns!


    After a long and lengthy hiatus, World Championship Wrestling is proud to announce that they have acquired another television deal with Turner Broadcasting and will once again be adding WCW Saturday Night back to the weekly television schedule. This Saturday night, WCW Saturday night will once again re debut on TBS at 8 pm.

    Developmental Talent To Be Moving Up


    With the recent news about WCW Saturday Night returning, word has gotten around that there will be many WCW talent performing on the show to gain air time, not only regular WCW talent but developmental talent as well. Keep an eye out on these young up and comers.

    Cruiserweight Tag Team Titles To NOT Be Coming Back


    The reason for 3 Count destroying the Cruiserweight Tag Team Championship was because the WCW Officials wanted to get rid of the championship. With so many titles within the company already, and because the titles did not really gain much popularity, it was time to drop the belts, thus the 3 Count angle. Rumors are circulating whether or not any other title will go defunct in the upcoming months, but nothing has been determined yet.

    Thunder Preview


    Coming off of Nitro this week, some tensions are flaring backstage going into Thunder. On Nitro, Shane McMahon addressed the situation involving 3 Count and destroying the WCW Cruiserweight Tag Team Championship, they were ordered to pay a fine, but also they would have to face the Filthy Animals. Thinking that the destruction of the titles would serve a purpose for 3 Count to be taught a lesson from the Filthy Animals, many were disappointed in knowing that 3 Count had already planned ahead. Unbeknownst to the fans and to everybody else, 3 Count had attacked the Filthy Animals backstage, and made them teeny boppers. There has been no word yet as to when these four will get inside the ring with each other, however Evan Karagias and Konnan will step in the ring tomorrow for one on one competition.

    Shane McMahon had also made it aware that WCW Television Champion; Mike Awesome, would in fact be competing in the Main Event tomorrow night. His opponent, Kevin Nash. Nash and Mike Awesome have not been seeing eye to eye as of late ever since Awesome defeated Nash at the Pay Per View, so Shane McMahon took the liberty of booking this match for tomorrow night with the TV Title NOT on the line. However, should Kevin Nash win the match, he WILL receive a title shot in the near future.

    With Chavo Guerrero escaping the clutches of Ultimo Dragon at the Pay Per View, and with his bodyguard already beating Juventud Guerrera, there is no question that Chavo will continue to use his bodyguard Yuji Nagata in order to keep the Cruiserweight Title around his waist. Chavo has issued a statement that he will in fact be on hand tomorrow night on Thunder, as will Nagata and Sonny Onoo. The question remains, who will challenge Nagata for the chance to go after the Cruiserweight Champion?

    Live from the Dunkin Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island


    The camera fades inside the Dunkin Donuts Center with fireworks going off above the ring and from the stage. The camera pans around the arena viewing the rowdy fans for a few seconds before stopping at the announcers table where Tony Schiavone and Mike Tenay are standing by


    Tony Schiavone: WELCOME TO THE DUNKIN DONUTS CENTER IN PROVIDENCE, RHODE ISLAND! WELCOME EVERYONE TO THUNDER! I’m Tony Schiavone alongside with Mike Tenay. And Mike, we’ve got a heck of a card lined up for these Rhode Island fans tonight!

    Mike Tenay: As always, Tony. And one of the matches that is going to be featured tonight is the match that Shane McMahon made happen on Nitro, it’s going to be the Television Champion, Mike Awesome taking on ‘Big Sexy’ Kevin Nash.

    Tony Schiavone: Two of the biggest men in World Championship Wrestling, that’s sure to be one heck of a match. But because of the tension brewing as of late, you can believe that the ring will probably not be big enough to hold them tonight.

    Mike Tenay: And you have to wonder, both of them use the powerbomb as a finisher. So it’ll be interesting to see just who will get the other up. Obviously ‘Big Sexy’ is the tallest and possibly the strongest of the two, but Mike Awesome is no slouch.

    Tony Schiavone: No he is not. Also in action tonight fans, Bill DeMott defends the United States Championship against another member of the Hart Family in ‘Nasty Boy’ Brian Knobbs.

    Mike Tenay: Brian Knobbs, big opportunity to bring another title into the possession of the Hart Family. But Bill DeMott, he’s held onto the title for this long, don’t think for one second he wants to lose the title tonight.

    Tony Schiavone: Also in action tonight, the ‘Natural’ Dustin Rhodes takes on Alex Wright. And a match I’m looking forward to, Konnan takes on Evan Karagias.

    Mike Tenay: It was on Nitro just a few nights ago that Shane McMahon fined 3 Count for destroying the Cruiserweight Tag Team Titles. They were scheduled to square off against Rey Mysterio and Billy Kidman, but 3 Count attacked them backstage unbeknownst to us and got themselves the win via a count out. Konnan is going to stick up for his friends tonight and take on Evan Karagias. But lets be honest, you know Shannon Moore is going to be at ringside to provide a little help.

    Tony Schiavone: But you can believe that the rest of the Filthy Animals are going to be supporting Konnan. It’s going to be a heck of a show tonight, so without further delay, LET’S GO TO DAVID PENZER!

    The camera fades down to the ring as “Get Back” starts up and the fans boo as Psychosis and La Parka walk out on stage


    David Penzer: Ladies and gentlemen this opening contest is set for one fall with a 15 minute time limit. Introducing first, the team of La Parka, and PSYYYYYCHOSIS!

    Mike Tenay: Well despite the fact that they’re rookies, Haas and Benjamin are certainly a good tag team here in World Championship Wrestling picking up some big wins in the early goings of their careers.

    Winner: Yuji Nagata via Twisting Brainbuster
    Tony Schiavone: And Nagata wins it and once again, Chavo Guerrero is safe from having to defend the Cruiserweight Championship.

    Mike Tenay: There’s got to be SOMEONE that can get past Nagata and be able to take that belt away from Chavo.

    Chavo Guerrero and Sonny Onoo climb inside the ring and start celebrating with Nagata. Chavo takes a moment and stomps the fallen Chulo a few times before once again continuing the celebration


    Tony Schiavone: Alright that’s enough already! Your man beat him already and did your dirty work. That’s not needed.

    Mike Tenay: Far be if from Chavo to not take a couple cheap shots in.

    Tony Schiavone: Welcome back fans and here’s a team that is just… Well… Is just not really having their shades of luck as of late. They’ve been on the losing end of things. And maybe it’s because, well, they just can’t stand the way the other dances.

    Mike Tenay: Well they aren’t 3 Count so that’s a plus. But I think you’re right Tony. Disco Inferno likes his disco music… Alex Wright, well he likes the techno side of things. And that, I don’t know why, but that creates conflict between the two.

    Tony Schiavone: Well Alex Wright is gonna have his hands full in a moment, let’s go to the ring!

    ~WELL THEY CALL HIM THE NATURAL~


    “Natural” starts up and the fans cheer as Dustin Rhodes walks out with Dusty Rhodes by his side. Dustin throws his arms up, pointing to the sky while Dusty claps for him as fireworks shoot off

    Backstage


    The camera fades backstage where you see ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund standing by with Kevin Nash who is taping up his wrists


    Gene Okerlund: Thank you gentlemen. ‘Big Sexy’ Kevin Nash, tonight you go one on one with Mike Awesome the Television Champion. The title is not on the line, however if you DO beat Mike Awesome tonight, there is a title shot at his belt in your future. And I don’t know if you witnessed his interview with me earlier, but let me tell you, he is underestimating you big time.

    Kevin Nash: *Laughs* Mike Awesome underestimating me? That’s a laugh. You know ‘Mean’ Gene. I gotta tell ya. I could care less about his TV Title. Sure, it’s gold. Sure it’s a championship. But I’m not in this to get the TV Title. I could care less about that. I’m in it, because Mike Awesome needs to learn a thing or two about respect. And if I can’t get it from him through my accomplishments in this sport and in this company. Then hell, I’ll just beat the hell out of him till he respects me. And that’s something you and I both know ‘Mean’ Gene that I’m pretty damn good at.

    Nash pats him on the shoulder and walks off



    (COMMERCIAL)



    The camera fades back inside the arena


    Tony Schiavone: Welcome back fans. If you’re just now tuning in, we just heard words from Kevin Nash regarding his thoughts on Mike Awesome tonight. He stated that it’s not about the Television Championship, but that it’s about respect.

    Mike Tenay: Yeah, and if Mike Awesome wont respect Nash because of his accomplishments here in WCW and throughout his history, that he’s going to beat it out of him.

    Tony Schiavone: That match will happen right after this. It’s Brian Knobbs taking on Bill DeMott for the United States Championship. Let’s go to the ring.

    Winner and STILL US Champion: Bill DeMott via ‘No Laughing Matter’
    Tony Schiavone: AND DEMOTT SUCCESSFULLY RETAINS THE TITLE!

    Mike Tenay: WHAT A MATCH!

    Tony Schiavone: Bill DeMott despite being outsized by the bigger Brian Knobbs STILL manages to pull the victory, and he is STILL the reigning United States Heavyweight Champion.

    Mike Tenay: And now look at this, ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund is getting in the ring.

    In Ring Segment


    ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund climbs inside the ring and stands next to Bill DeMott who holds up the United States Championship above his head and then places it on his shoulder


    Gene Okerlund: Bill DeMott if I can get a quick word with you… First off, congratulations on the successful title defense. But now let me ask you this. You’ve successfully defended that title of yours against all challengers. Tell me, is there ANYBODY that you yourself would put that title up against?

    DeMott looks around for a second and catches his breath


    Bill DeMott: *Catching His Breath* You know ‘Mean’ Gene. I gotta tell ya. In the last 4 months being the United States Champion, I’ve gone up against a lot of great athletes. And I’ve been able to hold onto this belt. So you know what? I really don’t care who I’ve gotta face. You can give me anybody. I’m a fighting champion, and I’ll welcome all challengers. You know, I’m not like 3 Count. I’m not going to destroy this belt because I’m afraid of the Filthy Animals.

    The fans cheer


    Bill DeMott: I’m not like Chavo Guerrero and hire a body guard to do my dirty work for me.

    The fans cheer again


    Bill DeMott: I’m a fighting champion. And I’ve got the heart of a champion. So whoever wants to challenge me, hey, I’m not a hard man to find.

    The fans cheer but suddenly…


    Tony Schiavone: IT’S MALICE!

    Malice slides in the ring behind DeMott and clubs him from behind with a vicious clothesline! Malice stares down DeMott but now grabs him by the throat and brings him to his feet, ‘CHOKESLAM!’ The fans boo as Malice stands over top of DeMott and holds the United States Championship in his hand as the camera fades to commercial



    (COMMERCIAL)



    The camera fades back inside the arena with the camera focused on Tony Schiavone and Mike Tenay


    Tony Schiavone: Welcome back fans and if you missed what happened moments ago, let’s take you back and show you just what transpired after Bill DeMott defended the United States Title[/i] [/center]


    (Video footage plays of Malice attacking Bill DeMott from behind and giving him a ‘Chokeslam’)



    Tony Schiavone: Well Bill DeMott said he would go up against anybody that challenged him for the belt, and I do believe he’s found his next challenger.

    Mike Tenay: Well he already beat Brian Knobbs, so obviously Malice I guess is wanting some revenge for his fellow family member in the Hart Family.

    Tony Schiavone: More on that one later but right now, it’s time for the Main Event. Let’s take you to David Penzer.

    The camera fades down to the ring
