    Re: Death of the New World Order

    Nice opening promo from Nash to build up what is going on with the NWO. I like that you have Nash as being over confident with Booker bc honestly he shouldn’t be seen as a huge threat at this point. I do look forward to seeing what you have planned to move this feud forward. However, I do think it is just a small feud to kinda test the water with Booker.

    Nice simple way to have a champion lose to what I assume will be the number 1 contender…I also am curious whats going on with the Heenan Family…im sure you have something planned or you wouldn’t of pulled Bobby from the booth.

    Bagwell begging to get back into the NWO is just fine for me…im wondering if you go with him getting back in or his “impressive thing” backfires and ends up costing the NWO which leads to him being an enemy of the Order.

    Small little get the fans back on my side promo from The Giant. He should be able to take care of Meng and I wonder who will be the sacrificial lamb next week from the NWO.

    Nice promo to kinda reset the cruiserweight division…I think this leads to a Triangle match, which has the potential to be fun…I still would love to see the story of Rey fighting and clawing to get the CW title and then Kidman comes back and wants it handed to him as a heel…that could be fun to read.

    Giant winning was never in doubt…I like that you didn’t have anything from the NWO come down…sometimes it can be difficult to not overbook things so good restraint here.

    Nice promo explanation from Stevie Richards…I remember when you brought him in that you said it wasn’t for a long time so I expect this match to take place probably at uncensored…I still love the Raven/Kanyon feud.

    Main event time and this is a big one. Double countout and im ok with this bc this match was more about the continuing of the feuds between douglas/flair and hart/page…I like that you are doing feuds outside of the NWO.

    Re: Death of the New World Order



    Y2K

    PREVIEW
    Expect the unexpected is a key term in the world of professional wrestling and last week that phrase was uttered repeatedly. The landscape of World Championship Wrestling has been changed forever with Kevin Nash holding the ultimate power position as both nWo World Heavyweight Champion and WCW President. It’s ironic that the man with the most control is surrounded by a situation that is so uncontrollable. At Super Brawl IX Booker T defeated Bret to become the number one contender to the World Championship. We all thought that was the match for Uncensored however last week Goldberg, the former champion, stepped up to the plate and demanded his rematch that he never got after losing the title at Starrcade. Nash has revealed that Goldberg will be forced to face a member of the New World Order at Starrcade, the match with Booker T moving ahead, and if Goldberg wins he will face the winner in the near future. Who will Goldberg be forced to face at Uncensored and how will Booker T react to the continued disrespect he has received from the World Champion?

    Chris Jericho has been a constant thorn in the side of the New World Order and his position as enemy number one only intensified at Super Brawl IX when he claimed the WCW United States Heavyweight Title as his own. Under the orders of Kevin Nash, we will see Chris Jericho defend his title against Scott Steiner tonight on Nitro. After a vicious assault last week by the former champion – Scott Hall – Jericho must overcome stacked odds once again. Can Jericho survive the minefield constructed by the nWo and make it to Uncensored against Hall or will the new champion stumble at his first hurdle?

    Bold claims can often comeback to bite you on the back side. Well, on Thunder it was WCW Cruiserweight Champion Dean Malenko who made the claim that he could defeat both The Artist and Rey Mysterio Jr. at the same time. While he will not have to do that he will be forced to face one of the two men he so proudly gloated about as lesser athletes. This week on Nitro, The Artist and Rey Mysterio Jr. collide in a number one contenders match with the winner facing Dean Malenko for the WCW Cruiserweight Title at Uncensored. Mysterio Jr. is seeking to avenge his loss to Malenko during the Cruiserweight Tournament Final and The Artist seeks his own redemption having fell to Mysterio Jr. during the semi-finals of the same tournament. One will step up and challenge Dean Malenko – who will it be?

    Kanyon and Raven have been one of the most interesting aspects of World Championship Wrestling since they became WCW World Tag Team Champions back at Starrcade late last year. There relationship has been one that many fans have struggled to see play out. Kanyon’s constant insults of Raven, putting him down verbally and recently getting physical with strikes and shoves. Last week it reached a boiling point when Kanyon attacked Raven, the latter refusing to fight back, and looked to hit the Flatliner. Unexpectedly, Stevie Richards would arrive in WCW – protecting his long-time friend and force Kanyon into retreat. Over the past week it has been made clear that Richards will not stand in the shadows and watch Raven be treated this way anymore. Both Kanyon and Richards are in the arena – what will happen when these two meet face to face?

    They lost at Super Brawl IX and now cannot challenge for the WCW World Tag Team Titles so long as Kanyon and Raven hold them. Kenny Kaos and Rick Steiner are a team without a goal to achieve and are stuck in limbo. We’ve seen growing frustration shared between the two men and that was on show following their recent loss at the PPV when Steiner walked away from Kaos. In an attempt to rebuild their friendship these two men will work together against Norman Smiley and Hugh Morris in a tag team match this week on Nitro. Are we about to see these former champions crumble or will they come out of this turmoil more united than ever before?


    Confirmed Matches:

    WCW United States Heavyweight Title:
    Chris Jericho (c) vs. Scott Steiner

    WCW Cruiserweight Contendership:
    Rey Mysterio Jr. vs. The Artist

    Kenny Kaos & Rick Steiner vs. Norman Smiley & Hugh Morris

    Ric Flair will compete in-ring for his hometown crowd

    Kevin Nash will reveal Goldberg's opponent for Uncensored

    Booker T, Shane Douglas, Scott Hall, Bret Hart and Curt Hennig are all confirmed for Nitro





    FYI, this is one of my favourite editions of Nitro that I've produced in this thread.

    Uncensored is over half finished. I start Law School this week so expect this thread is slow right down. I'll write when I can but I doubt it'll be near the volume that was available in the early going.

    Re: Death of the New World Order

    The fact that you're so excited for this edition of Nitro makes me even more excited for it. Some of the stuff you've already produced here is sensational and now apparently this is even better.

    Jericho/Steiner and Mysterio/Artist should be a world of fun although I expect both to be littered with interference. Rick Steiner is totally going to turn on Kaos tonight as well.

    I'm hoping that Nash chooses somebody so pro WCW to face Goldberg just to be a dick. Either way, looking forward to this one. As always, I'll be reading.

    Re: Death of the New World Order


    nWo Nitro | March 1, 1999 | Chapel Hill, North Carolina

    "Y2K"


    The beginning of a television program is usually one of excitement but ever since the New World Order have taken control of the entire company each day brings with it a sense of dread. As promised on Thunder, Kevin Nash makes his way out to the ring to further address the challenge made by Goldberg last week on Nitro. The reigning nWo World Heavyweight Champion is hounded by jeers from the crowd. His rise to championship status, the underhanded tactics of the nWo and militaristic takeover of Nitro last week making Kevin Nash the most hated man in professional wrestling. Nash has no backup with him, showing his own arrogance now that he has all the power, and begins by addressing the actions of Booker T on Thunder. Simply put, Booker T was offended by the notion that Kevin Nash does not view him as a threat. Nash chuckles, reminding everyone that Booker T has never held the title which is strapped around the President’s waist. Booker T has been tied to the hip with his brother, he is nothing more than a tag team specialist, a man who needs to remember where his place in this company is! That’s the difference between Nash and Booker T – the latter needs wrestling to survive. Kevin Nash proclaims that he isn’t a wrestler, he is a businessman and that makes him smarter than the rest of the boys in the back. They all have an expiration date just like Booker T but Nash will go on forever because this business doesn’t define him! He doesn’t need wrestling – he could walk away and be a millionaire “just like that!” However, Booker T wouldn’t survive without this business. He’d be in jail, he’d be on the street and that makes him a puppet! A fool who has his entire life dependent on a business – on promoters – on the idiots in the crowd!

    Stepping out onto the stage and making his way down to the ring – Booker T confronts Kevin Nash with a look of determination on his face. With chants in support, Booker T tells Nash to cut the crap when he is standing in this ring. Booker T saw the look of fear in Nash’s eyes last Thursday when he was flat on his back after the Axe Kick. He saw fear in his eyes when Nash attempted to make a deal with Bret Hart at Super Brawl. The thing is that Kevin Nash never wanted this to happen, he never wanted Booker T to get a chance at the World Title and that’s the way things have been Booker’s entire life. People never want to give him a shot because if they do he knocks it out of the park every single time! Booker T gets right in Nash’s face and tells him that in two weeks – when he gets the chance of a lifetime – he will knock it out of the park again and reclaim the WCW World Heavyweight Championship. Before Nash can say a word, Goldberg makes his way out to the ring and receives a standing ovation. It’s a tense situation right now, all three men in the ring sharing the same goal – to be World Champion. Goldberg grabs a microphone and states his intentions; “I heard what you said on Thunder. You want me to earn it? Fine. Name your man and I’ll run through them just like I’m going to run through you and take back MY World Championship!”

    Booker T steps up again, showing he truly belongs here, and tells Goldberg that Nash won’t be the one holding the World Title by the time Goldberg gets his shot. Just like last week Goldberg no sells Booker’s statements and keeps his eyes on Nash. The WCW President ponders the request, looking slightly concerned, until he finally agrees that if Goldberg can win a match at Uncensored he will be deemed the number one contender once again. The opponent will be a member of the nWo – Nash appears to have someone in mind when Hollywood Hogan steps out onto the stage. He doesn’t come down to the ring, appearing on stage with his nephew – Horace Hogan – and there the Hulkster cuts Nash off from naming anyone else but Hogan. Nash is flustered, shaking his head and trying to get a word in but Hogan rants that Goldberg got lucky the first time they fought – and this will be the chance Hogan needs to prove that he is still the biggest name in all of professional wrestling. Without consultation, Hogan accepts the spot as the nWo representative who will face Goldberg at Uncensored. Goldberg seems confident, he tosses the microphone to the floor. Nash looks like he is about to blow a gasket at what Hollywood Hogan just did. He completely stole the spotlight, coming out and accepting the spot before Nash or any member of the nWo had a chance to discuss their possible options. Goldberg goes to leave, bumping past Booker T, only to be yanked back and glared at by the Houston native! The crowd erupts, Booker T refusing to be pushed around like he doesn't belong and he did it in front of Kevin Nash. He spoke of fear earlier and now it is etched on the face of the World Champion. This is Booker’s moment and he will not be dismissed by anyone. Booker T exits the ring and makes his way up the ramp, Goldberg stood still as he watches Booker exit, while Nash begins to realize that he is in for a hell of a fight at Uncensored against a man with nothing to lose and everything to gain.

    The opening bout after an explosive confrontation to open the show is Chris Jericho up against nWo member, Scott Steiner. First out of the gate is Chris Jericho, set to defend the WCW United States Championship here tonight. Jericho steps out onto the stage and spreads his arms out, doing a little spin and shouting to the crowd for support. While making his way to the ring, Jericho interacts with some of the fans at ringside and draws the ire of Eric Bischoff on commentary. Far from supportive, Bischoff is very confident that the New World Order are about to regain the title they lost at Super Brawl IX – believing once and for all that Jericho will be eradicated. Out next is Scott Steiner, followed by Randy Savage, typical nWo seeking the numbers advantage. Fans don’t take kindly to Jericho being outnumbered, the man himself shrugs it out and continues to prepare inside the ring. Schiavone praises Jericho’s never say die attitude while Bischoff calls him a complete fool for even thinking he can stand up against the nWo.

    Match One
    WCW United States Heavyweight Championship
    Chris Jericho vs. Scott Steiner
    A strong opening match this week with Jericho having to overcome two men seeking to strip him of the title. The match nearly ends quickly after Jericho executes a sunset flip and rolls Steiner up into a pinning combination however Big Poppa Pump gets his shoulder up at the last second. Steiner would take control of the match through his power advantage, catching Jericho springboard off the ropes and slamming him to the canvas. Working the lower back to lead into the Steiner Recliner, the challenger would keep Jericho ground and apply a vicious looking bearhug that sucked the air out of Jericho’s lungs. Fans would rally towards Jericho – feeding him the energy he needed to begin a comeback. Fighting out of the bearhug, Jericho would head into the finish – Savage attempted to get involved but Jericho who knock him down to the floor. From behind, Steiner grabbed Jericho for an overhead suplex but Jericho flips and lands on his feet! Running bulldog by Jericho, followed by a Lionsault gives Jericho the clean victory and sends the crowd into a frenzy.
    Winner:
    Chris Jericho @ 08:13

    Post-match, Jericho hurries from ringside along with the title belt. Savage is livid as he enters the ring, stomping around the place and shoving the referee for having the nerve to count to three. Steiner is just as mad, hitting the referee with a stiff clothesline and throwing him to the outside of the ring. Schiavone calls that disgraceful, it’s absolutely sickening to see the nWo treating people like garbage but right now they have control. Jericho continues his way up the ramp, securing his spot against Scott Hall in two weeks, and once again sticking it to the New World Order.



    Nitro moves backstage to an empty stairwell, Shane Douglas and Francine are standing alone in the dimly lit area of the arena – the crowd drenching them with heat being that this is North Carolina otherwise known as Flair country. Douglas plays right into the fact that he is probably the most wanted man in this part of the world. A smug look on his face, the Franchise makes mention of the scene around him tonight – it’s very reminiscent of his past home. A place where he ruled the roost as a God just like Ric Flair ruled the world of professional wrestling in North Carolina. The difference? One of them has accepted it was in the past. “I did what I did in that little pond for as long as I had to before I could demand what I deserved. The money, the fame, the fortune and the titles! All of it will be mine now. I have put to bed my past and I look to the future of this business. That’s what I do – not the Nature Boy.” Douglas continues his rant, Flair will milk his legacy for pennies on the dollar these days. He will ruin what was once a legendary career fighting the likes of Harley Race and Ricky ‘the Dragon’ Steamboat and will turn himself into a joke fighting Eric Bischoff at Starrcade or turning himself into a comedic fraud like he was in the Dungeon of Doom. Even worse, he’ll sell his name to be in Baywatch! Last week, Ric Flair said Douglas was a bitter fan. Maybe once, maybe at one-point Douglas was a fan, perhaps he even idolized what Ric Flair was but now he can’t look at the Nature Boy without thinking of disappointment. To look upon the face of a man who has taken from this business time and time again. Stripped it raw, left it bare and done so without hesitation. The Franchise is getting angry just mentioning Ric Flair – he says that looking up at him last week just made him hate the man even more. He was smug, arrogant, entitled, well the history lessons are over. The Horsemen are dead! The limousines have been cancelled, the jets have been grounded and in two weeks – live on pay-per-view – the Franchise is going to make his WCW debut and, on that night, he will defeat Ric Flair.



    Earlier in the night, Kanyon arrived at the arena without his tag team partner. On commentary, Schiavone reminds us of the incident that took place last week. We see a replay of Kanyon getting angry with Raven and beating on him for raising a hand to Kanyon at Super Brawl. From the crowd, Stevie Richards got involved – a long-time friend of Raven’s from his past. It was on Thunder that Stevie Richards made a challenge to Kanyon that they should have a match under extreme rules to settle this situation. Tonight, we will see both men inside the arena and we will find out if Kanyon is willing to accept a match against Richards under extreme rules. In the footage of his arrival, Kanyon does not look like his playful self – far more reserved and he even tells the cameraman to get lost rather than sucking up the camera time like he would do on every other occasion.


    ** COMMERCIAL ** COMMERCIAL ** COMMERCIAL ** COMMERCIAL ** COMMERCIAL ** COMMERCIAL **

    It’s a big match up when Nitro returns from the break as we will decide the challenger for the WCW Cruiserweight Championship at Uncensored in two weeks. The first possibility is Rey Mysterio Jr. – the man who came up short in the final of the tournament back at Super Brawl. Fan support is still very passionate for the luchador, receiving a heavy ovation and Rey embraces the fans on his way down to the ring. Schiavone praises the connection shared between Rey and the fans; Bischoff scoffs and calls it pandering. The second possibility is the ever flamboyant one, The Artist. Accompanied to the ring by his muscle – Meng – The Artist surveys the arena as a large pyrotechnics display descends from the ceiling behind him (think Randy Orton in 2006 with the wall of golden pyro). The history behind this match is touched upon, The Artist losing to Rey in the tournament a few weeks back and now this is his chance for redemption. Before the bell sounds, The Artist throws off his robe and jumps Rey from behind!

    Match Two
    *Winner Gets a WCW Cruiserweight Title Shot at Uncensored*
    Rey Mysterio Jr. vs. The Artist (w/Meng)
    That last part doesn’t apply for long actually as the referee catches Meng swiping at the foot of Rey early on in the match. To a roar from the crowd, the referee tosses Meng from ringside and evens this contest up as a singles match. The Artist is in a state of outrage, this has never happened to him before, his chance to return from exile is being threatened. Overcome with anger, The Artist loses focus and allows Mysterio Jr. to take control of the match. It’s very fast paced with both men going all over the squared circle. Mysterio Jr. sells the knee a little, throwing back to the match with Malenko and how it was a main target. The Artist rakes the eyes towards the end of the match, gaining control and attempts a superplex which is countered into an arm drag from the top rope in a spectacular spot. There was no doubt this match had gotten the fans attention, both men putting on a fine performance when Dean Malenko and Fit Finlay stormed the ring to assault both men.
    Winner:
    Draw @ 07:12

    Forced to throw this match out and rule it a draw, the referee dives to the outside to avoid any possible physicality from Malenko and Finlay. It’s a wild scene in the ring as the Ice Man clobbers Mysterio Jr. with hard forearms to the face and tosses him into the corner of the ring, delivering stomps in the corner. Across the ring, Fit Finlay grinds his knuckles across the face of The Artist, ripping flesh from the cheeks of the Creative One. It’s an old school beatdown in the ring, Malenko seeking to destroy two challengers and two potential threats to the title he has dreamt of holding for so long. After both men are satisfied with their assault, Malenko and Finlay exit the ring and make their way up the ramp.

    They think they’re done for the night until Arn Anderson appears on the big screen. He informs both men that what they just did was completely unacceptable. Like it or not, he still has power in World Championship Wrestling and as WCW Commissioner he is going to enforce some of it right now! We were supposed to find one challenger for Malenko’s title defence at Uncensored – however, due to the nature of the interference it has become clear that Dean Malenko wishes to test his theory from Thunder. Eyes go wide for Malenko as he grips the WCW Cruiserweight Title close to himself and shakes his head, repeating the word ‘no’ multiple times. Because of what has occurred here tonight, Dean Malenko will defend the WCW Cruiserweight Championship at Uncensored in a Triple Threat Match against both Rey Mysterio Jr. and The Artist! Fit Finlay curses at the screen, shouting that Anderson can’t do something so stupid. Malenko doesn’t know how to react, he made the comment he could beat them both at the same time on Thunder and now will be forced into proving it. They rush backstage, possibly heading for the exit to avoid creating things worse for themselves, meanwhile Mysterio Jr. and The Artist are staring across the ring at each other – knowing they will both challenge for the gold in under two weeks.



    A quick recap spot for the announcers with Bischoff giving Schiavone a hard time about his commentary since Mike Tenay was kicked off the team. In a mocking fashion, Easy-E gives us a fake update on the career path of Mike Tenay, informing the audience that Tenay is now working at your local McDonald’s and is progressing well towards the fries! Suddenly, the camera shifts to the rafters where Sting is spotted hiding in the shadows with his black baseball bat and attire. Bischoff’s voice cracks with the sudden camera change, calling for security to apprehend that madman before somebody – mainly himself – gets hurt. With pride in his voice, Schiavone shouts they’ll never make it up they’re before Sting escapes!



    The current WCW United States Heavyweight Champion staggers through the halls backstage following his hard-hitting match with Scott Steiner earlier in the night. The fans shower Chris Jericho with cheers but the reception backstage is far different, especially from the man he meets at the door to the trainer’s room. It’s the nWo World Heavyweight Champion and WCW President, Kevin Nash – who delivers a slow clap to mock Jericho’s accomplishment tonight. Never one to let a slight go unanswered, Jericho pushes his title belt forward on his shoulder and taps the side plate. He remarks that Nash will have to try better next time if he wants to see the title stripped from Jericho anytime soon. That draws a laugh from Nash, he agrees and says that it is clear that Chris Jericho is more than your average wrestler. Jericho has to chime in; running through his various successes against the New World Order and calling it anything but average. Nash responds, telling Jericho that he is something special, someone to be remembered and a true main event guy. It’s that last part which brings Nash focuses on – Jericho is a main event guy but was in the opening match of the night. That simply will not do! Jericho puts the puzzle together a second too late as Nash taps the title belt hanging over Jericho’s shoulder, informing him that his night is not over! Chris Jericho will wrestle again in the main event of Nitro with the WCW United States Heavyweight Championship on the line. It’s a mixed reaction from the crowd, on one hand they’re excited for another title match but they don’t want to see Jericho lose either. Being a fighting champion, Jericho straightens up, he says bring it on before asking who his opponent will be. With a sly smile on his face and taking a moment to enjoy the moment, Nash reveals that it will be himself! That’s right, the main event of Nitro will be Jericho vs. Nash for the United States Title. Walking away with a huge smirk on his face, Nash calls back to Jericho to shine the title up for him before the end of the night as we cut to a commercial break – Jericho left standing pondering how the hell he can escape with the title now.


    ** COMMERCIAL ** COMMERCIAL ** COMMERCIAL ** COMMERCIAL ** COMMERCIAL ** COMMERCIAL **


    When Nitro returns from the break, Kanyon is standing in the middle of the ring with his half of the WCW World Tag Team Titles around his waist. Kanyon calls for a spotlight, the arena goes dark and a spotlight shines down upon him. Addressing the chants of ‘Raven’ throughout the arena, Kanyon tells the crowd that they can chant as loud as they like but it will not make a difference because Raven is not here. That’s because Raven has been told to stay home by Kanyon and Raven will do as he is told like a good dog! That’s what this team is when it all boils down to it, according to Kanyon. Raven is a dog from a shelter, alone and afraid, he came to World Championship Wrestling seeking refuge after being in that dumpster fire down in Philadelphia. And like a dog, Raven had to be taught when to speak, when to act and when to shut his mouth and know his place. That has become less clear in recent weeks; Kanyon reminds folks of Raven raising his hand to his partner at Super Brawl. Speaking over the boos, Kanyon points to himself and takes credit for dragging Raven from the pits of depression all the way to being one half of the tag team champions. It was all Kanyon, he put that dead weight on his back and repeatedly beat the best teams thrown their way. Had it not been for Kanyon they would’ve lost at Super Brawl, it was Kanyon who scored the pinfall, it was Kanyon who got the victory at Souled Out – Kanyon is this team! He is the leader, he is the one who deserves all the credit and the constant chants for Raven make him sick!

    Having heard enough of this egotistical tirade, Stevie Richards strides out to the ring to a solid cheer from the audience! In jeans and a t-shirt, Richards enters the ring, grabbing a microphone on his way in and gets right in the face of Kanyon. It’s a simple yes or no, that’s all Richards wants after issuing a challenge to an Extreme Rules match on Thunder. Kanyon tries to change the subject, poking Richards in the chest and asking who the hell does Stevie think he is to come into this company like he owns the place. That’s not going to work; Richards slaps the mic from Kanyon’s hand and raises his voice. “I want a yes or no! You’ve come out to this ring and treated Raven like crap for months. You will not touch him again! I promise you, I’ll rip your eyes out of your head before you ever raise a hand to him, Kanyon. Now, is it a yes or a no? Are you a coward or will you show the world you’ve got some balls and fight me under Extreme Rules?” The building is chanting ‘Yes’ begging for Kanyon to finally meet his maker and pay for all the horrible things he has said and done to Raven. The champion thinks it over, he says no and quickly darts for the ropes but Richards cuts him off.

    An irate Richards unloads on Kanyon verbally, calling him a weasel for not having the guts to stand against him. It’s almost funny, Kanyon calls Raven the weak one but it’s Kanyon who is running scared without Raven by his side! Kanyon reminds Stevie that Raven left him, he had no allegiance to Stevie when he up and walked out on him. Why come a save him now? Richards grabs Kanyon around the collar; “Because that’s what friends do!” Letting go, having failed to get what he wanted, Richards turns his back and heads for the ring apron. At the last second, Kanyon jumps him and begins hammering away with punches. It’s a total blindside, Kanyon slings Richards into the ropes and nails him with a superkick! With a handful of hair, Kanyon slowly pulls Stevie back to his knees, now holding a microphone and pushes it against his face. “Huh! Wake up, Stevie. Listen good, you don’t get to come into my world and make demands of me. You got that? I don’t take orders from Raven and I’m certainly not taking them from his bitch! You want me in an Extreme Rules match? You got it! I’ll see you on Thunder… and I hope Raven will be watching because I want him to see what happens when you disrespect – ME!” Lifting Richards onto his feet, Kanyon nails the Flatliner in the middle of the ring and poses with his half of the WCW World Tag Team Titles over Stevie Richards. The match has been made for this week – Kanyon versus Richards in an Extreme Rules contest on Thunder. It’s anything goes, there will be blood and will no doubt be hell on earth.



    A highlight package for La Parka airs with voiceover from Tony Schiavone hyping up the luchador. We see several athletic moments from his career and his recent victory in the battle royal on Thunder before Super Brawl. His performance is highlighted including the final elimination of Meng to pull of what many would call an upset and secure a match against Wrath for the WCW World Television Championship. The package has many great luchadores involved including Mil Mascaras, Psicosis and Rey Mysterio Jr. all talking about how good La Parka is inside the ring. The final part of the package includes footage of La Parka pinning Wrath in a six-man tag team match last week on Thunder. Following the video package, Tony Schiavone confirms that this week La Parka will get his shot at the title when he meets Wrath. A huge match that only further stacks the deck for what promises to be one of the biggest episodes of Thunder in the history of the program.



    Back to the ringside area, Norman Smiley and Hugh Morris are standing inside the ring pumping each other up for their upcoming match. In a funny moment, Eric Bischoff 100% predicts that Smiley and Morris have no chance at winning this match. Schiavone calls that a ridiculous statement; Bischoff is so confident he offers a bet but Schiavone tells him to just sit their and try to act like he knows what he is talking about. We actually get to see the entrance of the second team, Kenny Kaos and Rick Steiner. Schiavone reminds us of the troubles this team has faced and the predicament they now find themselves in having sustained three defeats in a row on pay-per-view for the WCW World Tag Team Titles. They were able to keep their title hopes alive by defeating the Blue Bloods last month but now they find themselves passed over after multiple failures. Kenny Kaos appears to be in high spirits still, trying to encourage Rick Steiner but the veteran is very subdued and doesn’t possess the same enthusiasm as Kaos.

    Match Three
    Norman Smiley & Hugh Morris vs. Kenny Kaos & Rick Steiner
    This match a few months ago would’ve been a slam dunk for the latter. However, after so many times failing to regain their titles, coming up short to a less cohesive team, Kaos and Steiner are no longer what they once were. In fact, Rick Steiner never tags into the match at all – leaving Kaos to face two men. At one point, Kaos having taken control looks to tag in Rick but his partner walks down the steel steps and watches from the floor. Kaos is confused, pleading with Rick to help him out. It is no use, the crowd turning on Rick for his refusal to help his partner, while Smiley and Morris take advantage. A fan favourite team in their own way, Morris and Smiley work together beautifully and scored the victory after Morris hit No Laughing Matter – much to the dismay of Easy E who could be heard choking on his water following the three count.
    Winners:
    Norman Smiley & Hugh Morris @ 04:06

    The real story was the losing team as Kenny Kaos got to his feet following the three count. Turning his attention to his partner, Steiner now on the apron of the ring and entering through the ropes, Kaos throws his hands out and asks what just happened. Steiner walks right up to Kenny and slaps him across the face. The crowd goes silent as Rick yells that he doesn’t have time to sit around babysitting a kid if they can’t challenge for the titles. His career has gone on for years, he’s a veteran, you don’t get to stick around the locker-room for old times sake. Kaos reminds Rick that they were the champions, they can get back to that point but they need to work together. That only further pushes Rick over the edge, he tackles Kaos to the ground and begins punching him in the face. Repeatedly delivering hard strikes, breaking through the protective hands of Kaos and colliding with skin.

    The amateur wrestling of Rick Steiner gives him an edge on the ground, beating Kaos as he sees fit while shouting at him. This is all about Rick Steiner not wanting to wait around, if he can’t challenge for the belts he has no use for Kaos anymore, he has no interest in guiding the youngster if he cannot gain something from it. Lifting Kaos onto his shoulders, Rick nails the Steiner Driver to put Kaos down on the canvas. It was a selfish turn, one built on his own personal desires with no thought given to the younger. Rick Steiner exits the ring, never once looking back at the friend he has left without a partner, without guidance or someone to lean on in the crazy world of professional wrestling. Steiner takes his leave – a message sent. This team is over and Rick Steiner is his own man now.

    Coming out onto the stage and making his way down to the ring is Scott Hall, the current number one contender for the WCW United States Heavyweight Title at Uncensored and key figure in the New World Order. Hall doesn’t enter the ring instead he approaches the broadcast booth where Eric Bischoff welcomes him for a chat. Walking around with a bravado like he owns the place, and he might as well all things considered, Hall gets on the microphone and hypes up the main event for this evening. The Bad Guy says he is on the edge of his seat to see if little Chris Jericho can overcome the odds yet again, jump up onto his feet and hear the roar of the crowd. Faking sickness, Hall wages a finger in the face of Schiavone, telling him that Jericho has run out of second chances. He has run out of loopholes; Schiavone quipping that it’s ironic that the nWo is complaining about loopholes. Giving Schiavone a stiff poke in the chest, Hall reminds him that the Bad Guy didn’t come down here to hear Tony’s opinion. No, Hall came down to this ring to remind everyone in this arena that Chris Jericho will not be leaving with the WCW United States Heavyweight Title and once Nash wins the belt tonight, he’ll hand it over to Scott at Uncensored and the New World Order will reign supreme once again. Bischoff loves the idea, praising Hall and saying that he should’ve never lost the title. Schiavone can’t take it, he stands up and reminds Hall that if he wasn’t such a big coward by making it a tag team match at Super Brawl instead of a standard singles match, then perhaps he wouldn’t have lost the title without being pinned. Another thing, what is the go with this lovefest going on between Hall and Bischoff? Schiavone is fired up, calling them both frauds because it was Hall who took such glee with revealing to Eric at Starrcade that the nWo wouldn’t be helping him against Ric Flair. It’s a farce just like this second match for Jericho is but Schiavone believes in the kid, telling Hall that he better think twice about having the title handed to him because it’ll need to be ripped from the hands of Chris Jericho first! Hall looks smug, scratching his chin as he thinks about the outburst – suddenly Hall shoves Tony back into his seat and grabs him by the jaw. No punches are thrown, Hall begins to lightly tap Schiavone on the cheek before taking his leave from ringside – Bischoff warns Schiavone to watch his tongue because the next time he opens his mouth like that he won’t get off easy.



    To an almost silent reception from the crowd, Buff Bagwell makes his way out to the ring with a microphone in hand and his trademark top hat. Bagwell calls for silence, telling the fans to shut up, even though they already were silent. Boasting around his past in the New World Order, Bagwell says that he has seen the light and understands now that the nWo is the future of professional wrestling and thanks to the grace of Kevin Nash, Bagwell has a chance to redeem himself and earn a spot back in the organization. Chants of ‘boring’ rise from the crowd, Bagwell shouts them down and calls out Ric Flair! That gets a big pop from the crowd much to the dismay of Bagwell. Shouting towards the ramp while pointing, Bagwell remarks that Flair found out the true power of the nWo at Super Brawl when he failed to win the World Title. It was a one-sided ass kicking at the hands of the greatest champion of all time – Kevin Nash! Bagwell is loathed in North Carolina at the moment, fans chanting for the Nature Boy, as Buff parades around the ring and talks of dominating Ric if given the chance. He will squash Flair like a bug, rid the nWo of the Nature Boy right now and that would secure his spot back in the group.

    From the entrance chute, to a huge pop, comes Ric Flair out to answer the challenge. He is flashy, cocky and ready to compete after coming up short at Super Brawl IX. Schiavone mentions the statements made by Shane Douglas earlier tonight and the upcoming contest between Douglas and Flair at Uncensored built on nearly a decade long war of words, mostly from the Franchise. Flair enters the ring to a legendary response, he removes his robe and motions to Bagwell to bring it on.

    Match Four
    Buff Bagwell vs. Ric Flair
    The aggressiveness of Bagwell plays went in the earlier moments of the match and there is no doubt that he has the strength advantage. However, this is Flair country and the Nature Boy isn’t doing a job here of all places. Flair would soon take over following a sneaky thumb to the eye, getting a pop from the crowd and from that point on Flair would target the right leg of Buff. Once the big man was off his feet, Flair was able to slowly work away at the limb, putting pressure on the joint and playing to the crowd. They wanted to see Ric Flair tonight and that is exactly what they got. Try as he might, Bagwell was outmatched inside the ring against one of the greatest of all time. Even his drive to return to the nWo wasn’t even to get Bagwell the victory. A strut in the middle of the ring, a few chops in the corner, a knee drop and the Figure Four Leg Lock to send them home satisfied.
    Winner:
    Ric Flair @ 06:31

    Following the match, Flair gets to his feet and receives a giant ovation from the crowd. He blows them kisses, thanking everyone for their support before heading up the ramp. Schiavone says that this is a great moment to see, watching the fans show their love to one of the greats and showing just how much the Nature Boy means to everyone. Flair gets to the top of the ramp and turns to the fans one more time, waving his hand in the air before doing a little strut to another huge reaction. Bischoff reminds Tony that no matter how much love Flair gets from the fans it’ll never get him the World Title back. Firing back, Schiavone tells Bischoff that no matter how many hours Easy-E spends out here badmouthing guys like Flair, he’ll never get that cushy job back as WCW President either!



    There are in fact two decision makers in World Championship Wrestling and tonight we find ourselves in the office of number two; WCW Commissioner, Arn Anderson! Sitting at his desk, Arn is being berated by Dave Taylor and Bobby Eaton – the Blue Bloods. Both men are talking at once, leaning forward and waving their hands in front of Arn’s face, outlining why they must be given a second chance at the WCW World Tag Team Titles as soon as possible. Taylor is the loudest of the two, slamming his fist down on the desk and arguing that the inclusion of Kaos and Steiner at Super Brawl robbed the Blue Bloods of the fair opportunity they were promised. Weapons have no place in tag team wrestling, the fact that Raven was allowed to use a steel chair and had the nerve to strike the Blue Bloods was disgraceful and has tainted the titles. Eaton speaks up, pointing to Kanyon and Richards’ fighting each other – the champions are completely disorganized, they are not fit to represent this company as champions but the Blue Bloods are. For the sake of the company, Arn must make this match and give the Blue Bloods the standard tag match they earned by beating Kanyon and Raven. Finally, Arn gets a chance to respond and he has heard the request. He agrees that the tag titles should be defended in a standard tag match again – however the Blue Bloods had their shot and lost. Therefore, if they want a second chance they’ll need to earn it. That doesn’t sit well with Taylor, he says they have earned it by beating everyone in the tag division! Eaton points out that earlier tonight Kaos and Steiner split; how many more options do you actually have? Arn reminds them that they haven’t beaten everyone as just last week they lost to Harlem Shake! That’s why on Thunder this week it’ll be the Blue Bloods vs. Harlem Shake with the winner facing Kanyon and Raven at Uncensored for the WCW World Tag Team Titles! Taylor and Eaton storm off after hearing the news, rabbling around how they should’ve gone to Nash first; Anderson rubs his forehead – it’s been a long night for the Enforcer.

    Once Nitro returns from the commercial break, Bret Hart walks up to Bobby Heenan with a sinister smirk on his face. Almost cheery in his approach, Hart mocks Heenan for his clients suffering two defeats last week. It’s amusing to Bret that the Brain could have two clients and still fail to get a victory. As you would expect, Heenan fires back and quickly points out that the Hitman came up short last week on Thunder and he lost at Super Brawl. From where Bobby Heenan is standing, he’s got two winners and a championship while Bret Hart is on the outside looking in on anything remotely relevant. Raising a finger and pointing at Heenan’s face, Hart tells him to watch how he speaks to wrestling royalty. This business relies on the likes of the Hart family and old dogs like Heenan need to respect the hand that feeds them. From out of the shot, Bigelow and Wrath appear behind Heenan and Bret quickly goes quiet. Heenan chuckles, tapping his chin with his index finger and asks if Bret has anything else to say. The answer is no; Bret slowly backs up and takes his leave not wanting to get physical with Heenan’s intimidating clients.



    The second to last match of the night is moments away from taking place as Diamond Dallas Page and Roddy Piper make their way out to the ring. Piper is fired up, slapping hands with fans and giving words of warning towards the camera for the nWo. Page follows behind the veteran, nodding along in support and rushing up the apron of the ring to the turnbuckle where he throws up the Diamond Cutter hand sign. The battle on commentary arises again for this WCW vs. nWo match; Bischoff asking if this is the best WCW has to offer. Out next are the representatives for the New World Order; Randy Savage and Konnan. They are heavily booed by the crowd, Savage threatening to punch a fan who taunts him a little bit much. Once they enter the ring, Savage decides he will start the contest, shouting at Piper to get back into his own corner. The bad blood between Piper is well known following multiple matches involving the two as recent as their match on Thunder before Super Brawl.

    Match Five
    Diamond Dallas Page & Roddy Piper vs. nWo (Savage & Konnan)
    Solid tag team contest between the two teams with everyone getting in their big spots. Piper played up the wild out of the gate fighter that he has been embracing recently, charging straight across the ring and going after the nWo. Throughout the contest, Bischoff could be heard on commentary defending every action of the nWo and praising their every move. At one point the nWo had Piper isolated, cutting off the ring, and Konnan would place a foot on the veteran’s hand – stomping on the fingers. The nWo took pride in breaking down the Hot Rod, his outlandish attitude having been a thorn in the side of the nWo for a long time. In an exciting moment, Page got the tag and squared off against Randy Savage. The latter reminding DDP of the assist back at Souled Out; the Macho Man motioned that Page should join them like he was offered back in January. The answer hadn’t changed, Page and Piper would rally against the nWo with fan support backing them. The finish would come as Page hit the Diamond Cutter on a rampaging Konnan for the pin.
    Winners:
    Diamond Dallas Page & Roddy Piper @ 08:11

    Mayhem would arise following the contest but not from the New World Order in a twist of events. From the entrance chute, Bret Hart would storm down to the ring and attack Diamond Dallas Page. Payback for their confrontation last week and Page’s involvement on Thunder, Bret Hart nails Page from behind with a forearm to the back of the head. Delivering stomps to the body afterwards and with spite, Bret continued the attack as he threw Page to the outside of the ring and ripped the cover off the announce desk. Roddy Piper tries to protect his friend but a kick to the groin drops the Hot Rod, and Bret tosses him over the barricade into the crowd. Turning his attention back to Page, Bret grabs him by the hair before climbing on the announce desk. Fans hold their breath as the Hitman lifts DDP up and spikes him head first onto the announce desk with a piledriver! Schiavone screams that his neck could be broken but that’s the only thing that could be broken because the table itself refuses to break.

    Bret rolls off the table, clapping his hands together and raises them high in the air. Boos flood ringside as Hart climbs onto the apron of the ring and dares them to boo him even louder. It’s a cowardly act from the Hitman and it appears to not be over. As Page slowly beings to slide off the table, Bret seems frustrated that the table never broke. Picking Page up once more, Bret positions him into the piledriver position for the second time and delivers it! This time the table breaks – exploding onto the floor and leaving DDP out cold. Referees and medics are all surrounding ringside now as Bret Hart swats them away from his handy work. Grabbing the head of Page, Bret leans in close and shouts that he should’ve kept his nose out of Bret’s business. A stiff boot to the head is the final piece of action by the Hitman; Bret straightens himself up and exits ringside, pushing a few medics to the floor simply because he is a prick.



    Before the final break of the night we see a paid vignette from the New World Order. This week it focuses on the newest member of the group; Curt Hennig. In true mock fashion, Hennig is dressed exactly like nWo long-time rival – Sting. Wig, baseball bat, black coat and face paint – it’s all there for Hennig in this promotional spot. He hides in the corners of the room to begin with, darting across them by jumping through the air as if he were flying. With a long line of black trench coats, Hennig muses which coat he will wear today and pokes fun at the variety available to him. Pretending to be Sting, Hennig tries to hit a few baseballs thrown to him by someone off camera and hits every single one of them. That causes Hennig to toss the bat and rip off all his Sting gear, turning to the camera and proclaiming that when you’re perfect you can’t pretend to be something else. That’s what Sting is doing, he stands in the rafters and pretends to be some great hero for World Championship Wrestling. In reality, Sting isn’t watching over WCW from those rafters, he is hiding from the New World Order. Hennig wipes his face, removing the paint and gets closer to the camera. Hennig reminds Sting that he has felt the taste of that baseball bat at Super Brawl and it’s still stuck in his mouth. Never again, it was a lucky shot just like the shot Sting got on Hennig last week. Hennig was tired from wrestling Booker T, he wasn’t ready but now you’ve gone and pissed him off. Sting acts so high and mighty from his little perch, he hasn’t been seen in months and he thinks he can come back to WCW and go straight into the main event. That’s where Sting is wrong – times have changed and the days of Sting getting to do as he pleases are over. Hennig grabs the camera and whispers one final line; “Sting might be iconic but he’ll never be perfect!”


    ** COMMERCIAL ** COMMERCIAL ** COMMERCIAL ** COMMERCIAL ** COMMERCIAL ** COMMERCIAL **


    Fans are on their feet for the arrival of Chris Jericho, the WCW United States Heavyweight Champion making his second title defence of the night after retaining earlier against Scott Steiner. Selling the impact of the earlier match, Jericho isn’t rushing down to the ring, taking his time and showing a look of concern on his face for what is a total setup. On commentary, Schiavone calls this a total abuse of power by the New World Order, forcing Jericho to defend his title twice when the man has a title defence against Scott Hall in less than two weeks. Bischoff defends the decision by arguing that if Jericho can’t handle the pressure he isn’t built for this business. The wild fan support turns to sickening heat as Kevin Nash struts out onto the stage with the nWo World Heavyweight Title around his waist. His long flowing blond hair on display, Nash waves to the back and out comes every member of the New World Order including Horace Hogan! Inside the ring, Jericho’s face goes pale, he clutches the title belt close and glares at the impending doom heading towards him. It’s eight on one! Nash chuckles, talking to Scott Hall on his way down to the ring and waving at Jericho. The New World Order create a barricade across the bottom of the entrance ramp – blocking any potential help – while Nash enters the squared circle. The referee is having trouble starting the match, his own morals getting in the way, Nash grabs him and makes demands to start the damn match or he’ll be fired. In fear for his employment, the referee looks at Jericho and says “I’m sorry” before calling for the bell.

    Match Six
    *WCW United States Heavyweight Championship*
    Chris Jericho vs. Kevin Nash
    The crowd really is the story of this contest as the in-ring work is very limited. Jericho had already gone through a proper match earlier in the night and spent the majority of this contest being beaten up by the fresh World Champion. Extremely loud chants of Jericho echoed throughout the arena, Nash telling them to shut up as he nailed hard shots to keep Jericho on the canvas. The crowd would rally, getting louder and louder – attempting to ignite a comeback for their hero. Nash used his length to push Jericho into the corner, choking him with a boot to the throat and slapping his face back and forth. The barricade of nWo members stood as an impressive force, Jericho was a lamb sent to the slaughter and Nash was closing in on the title belt. A small comeback from Jericho caused the crowd to erupt. Right hands in desperation, gritted teeth and closed fights backing the World Champion into the ropes. A dropkick and a bulldog would give Jericho life, his adrenaline kicking in as he went for the Lionsault but Scott Hall would pull the second rope away – causing Jericho to tumble to the outside. Quickly, Hall threw Jericho back into the ring, getting in a cheap shot for good measure – the official threatened if he even thought about calling a disqualification. Nash set Jericho up for the Jackknife, arms spread wide, a cocky smirk on his face – it was set. Then from the top of the stage the reinforcements arrived! Lex Luger, Roddy Piper, Ric Flair, Rey Mysterio Jr, The Giant, Booker T and even Goldberg! A wild brawl broke out in the aisle but inside the ring it was not without chaos as Sting repelled from the rafters and clocked Nash in the face with the baseball bat! Jericho staggered, the crowd going mental, he gave a nod to Sting as the referee called the for DQ!
    Winner:
    Chris Jericho @ 08:31 (DQ)

    An eruption of noise came from the arena as Jericho stumbled up to his feet as the referee handed him the title belt. Two title defences in the same night; Jericho has survived after an assist from not only Sting but from his WCW brotherhood. The chaos on the ramp is breaking down after the end of the match, Hogan being the first to retreat from the battle and dragging his nephew along with him. The WCW defenders force the nWo towards the ring where Jericho and Sting are standing – Konnan and Savage escape through the crowd while Hennig and Steiner find a way to edge past Flair and Luger. That leaves only two men – the original Outsiders!

    Hall and Nash realize the problem they have and quickly head for the hills, rushing into the crowd and making for the exit. The Outsiders have fled but in doing so left something very important – the nWo World Heavyweight Title. Inside the ring, Jericho picks it up and stares at the big gold belt with longing eyes. The fans are reacting big time as Jericho lifts his gaze and sees the other members of WCW now sharing the ring with him. Stepping forward from the bunch, Booker T approaches and extends a hand – he wants the belt. The camera cuts to Goldberg in the corner, he turns away as Jericho hands the gold over and Booker T hoists it into the air to a major pop. The battle lines have been set for what promises to be one of the biggest nights in wrestling history. The final image this week sees Jericho, Booker T, Luger, Flair, Piper, Mysterio Jr, The Giant and Sting standing united inside the squared circle having driven the nWo away. Just out of sight, in the corner of the screen, we see Goldberg exit the ring and walk away, unable to look upon another man holding the title belt that he believes must return to his waist.

    Re: Death of the New World Order

    I am really looking forward to this episode, as I know on the preview you said that it was one of your favorites that you have written.

    The opening promo was nicely well done. I really enjoy the way that you write your stuff out. I’m trying to figure out a way to write my shows out bc I don’t wanna do full shows with promos that are line by line anymore bc of time constraints, so im trying to figure out a style that will suit me. Onto the actual content, I liked that you have Booker standing up to both Nash and Goldberg. Hogan putting himself into the match with Goldberg really makes me think that Hogan is going to be the true destroyer of the NOW…being the guy on the inside…I don’t think Booker is winning the belt from Nash, but again this is properly being done to have a moment to look back on in the development of Booker T.

    Jericho winning is great and continues his strong push. I love that you are making the NWO vulnerable and not having all of its members as untouchable. I mean, if Hogan can loss then anyone can loss…except for Nash…am I right? Haha.

    Strong promo from Shane Douglas…I liked the lines at the end turning one of Flair’s catchphrases against him. I also love that you have Shane mention where he came from but he has moved on and not living in the past. This story pretty much writes itself with all the true life stories you can go with, so just have fun with it.

    Nice way to recap the Raven/Kanyon storyline for new readers.

    I like that you are getting more into the Artist character…Ive said it before but the Artist reminds me so much of Velveteen Dream…I like that you had Meng thrown out, which gives a reason that he is not there to fight Malenko/Finlay when they interrupt. I like the booking of the Triple Theat match…just as a heads up, WCW called them Triangle matches, but its essentially the same thing. I think this is good because it allows for so many possibilities for the CW title.

    Nash…Double Champion…Book it…lol in all seriousness, I don’t see a finish coming out of this match, but again much like the Booker/Nash match, this will give Jericho a strong showing against the guy right now in WCW.

    Nice development on the saga of Raven/Kanyon/Richards…im expecting some shenanigans on Thunder to get us to go onto Uncensored with these two fighting there. Im not sure how I feel about using the “Extreme Rules” label…like I know why your calling it that, but it doesn’t fit the time period at all…I mean no major deal, but just a thought.

    I am glad to see this team break up. I think it was time. I feel like there should be a small feud between the two, but then move on. I think the team served its purpose as Kaos can slide into the TV title picture after he finishes with Rick. Also, I kinda hope Smiley and Morris stay a team as that could be a fun duo.

    Good job on finding a way to get Hall on the show. I do wonder why you choice Bischoff to come back. I know you said that you needed an NWO voice in the booth, but I think there is more to it.

    Buff trying to get back into the NWO is interesting…I have two train of thoughts on this…he either helps someone win a belt or costs someone a belt or opportunity and slowly turns babyface…personally I hope he stays heel as I don’t really like Buff as a baby…I personally cant remember him as a baby when he was Buff. As you said in the match write up, Flair isn’t jobbing in Flair Country.

    Blue Bloods should take the match on Thunder, Harlem Shake hasn’t been around long enough to be in the title scene.

    Good way of getting both the Heenan Family and Bret Hart involved in the show. I do hope you let the Family get some wins in soon.

    WCW is 2-0 against the NWO so far. This isn’t looking so good for Jericho. Good attack angle by Hart onto Page…this has potential to be a great match if it happens at Uncensored.

    I like that you have Henning as the first opponent for Sting coming back. I really liked this vignette and I def could see Henning doing something like that. Good job here.

    Wow, what an angle to end Nitro this week. WCW stands tall and Booker holds the belt up, but Goldberg lingering in the background was amazing and would have been an awesome visual. Sting coming through for Jericho is awesome and really shows that Sting is looking out for the future of WCW with the moment he had with Booker last week.

    Overall, this was a really good show. It kept things moving and the final angle was a big win for the WCW contention.

    Re: Death of the New World Order

    Opening the show with Kevin Nash is fine and pretty standard considering the fact that he is the president and the man in charge now. I enjoyed the comparison between Booker and himself, basically painting the picture of how these two are polar opposites. Booker’s return and everything he said was great, as was The Berg’s introduction. I like the continued to play towards Booker not being respected with The Berg pretty much just ignoring him as well. Hogan wanting to be the man Goldberg faces is a bit of a shock, but causes further dramas with the NWO. One thing I forgot to mention earlier on in this thread as it does feel a bit like this drama with Hogan has come out of nowhere. Whilst it works in the larger scheme of things, because politics will begin to weaken the faction, we maybe could have had a few more little hints in there. Instead, Hogan ruined Hall, and now is stuffing up Nash, without any real time to breathe or give Hogan a chance to redeem himself. I didn’t really understand why Nash all of a sudden feared Booker either, came across as a little strange. Who cares that he had a stare down with Goldberg? Still a fun start to the show but a few things I wasn’t entirely sure of.

    The mega and awesome push of Chris Jericho continues here as he successfully defends the US Title against Scott Steiner. Savage’s interference being a non factor was great for Jericho to, and this against the odds win does nothing but continue to shine a positive light on Jericho and WCW. You continue to do a tremendous job with him, keep it up.

    I like the idea of Shane Douglas and Francine being in a stairwell in a dimly lit area, feels very Pulp Fiction. Very ECW. I like the fact that you played up those characteristics. As for the promo itself, awesome stuff. I feel like this gave us even more of an insight into why Douglas hates Flair. The whole stealing from the business, tarnishing your legacy reason is a great one. Good stuff here.

    Kanyon being alone and being in a different mood than usual sets the scene really well for whatever happens later in the night.

    Mysterio/Artist was exactly what it needed to be here. Before I touch on the actual match, I enjoyed the added detail of giving The Artist some ala Randy Orton pyro. Awesome move. The two had a decent match but Malenko and Finlay were always interfering here, setting up the triple threat match at Uncensored. After Malenko’s comment on Thunder this was ALWAYS going to happen. Booking 101 really. Anderson’s announcement of the match came across well to, good stuff.

    Sting appearance? Exciting!

    Jericho/Nash segment was very good, I loved the back and forth between the two. Jericho not fearing anybody and standing up to Nash just gives him even more of a rub. Typical heel bullshit to book Jericho in another match for the night, but this is EXACTLY the sort of stuff that should be happening now that Nash has the power. Great stuff, and main event should be sick.

    Kanyon/Stevie Richards segment did its job well. It was simply an extension of what has already been going on with this angle, but in more detail. Kanyon running his mouth early before Richards being all intense was fine. The attack was so slimy, such a Kanyon thing to do, but their much on Thunder should be a world of fun. Whilst Kanyon/Richards is a nice piece to the puzzle, looking forward to seeing more Raven. He’s where the excitement is at here.

    La Parka hype is fine enough. Does the job but I completely expect Wrath to beat him.

    Smiley and Morris get their first win in a while which is a great thing for them, but that isn’t what this was about. Steiner/Kaos split has been built for a fair length of time now, and the execution delivered. Steiner refuses to tag, then rants and attacks afterwards. This is definitely a heel push for Rick waiting to happen, maybe even send him into the NWO with his brother Scott. Either way, solid stuff here and I expect Steiner to squash Kaos sometime soon to put a full stop on this angle.

    Scott Hall running his mouth over the US Title and getting the title off of Nash was fine. They have done this before so there is a big chance that the NWO could just hand over a title again. Schiavone eventually losing his shit was interesting, however I’m still a little confused with the whole Bischoff/NWO guys being friends again. By the looks of things, it’s some sort of angle and it will be made clear soon, but right now, I’m still stumped.

    LMAO at Bagwell telling the fans to shut up even though they were already silent. Made me laugh. Bagwell’s promo was alright, sucking up to NWO, but surely they don’t take him back after just rebranding. Bagwell being the desperate guy trying to get in could be a fun angle though.

    Flair gets the win over Buff, to keep his momentum heading into Uncensored. Good move, smart decision.

    One thing that I probably to dislike now that I think about it is Arn Anderson still having power as the Commissioner. It makes the whole Nash President thing not feel as important. I don’t think I even clued in that Anderson was still in power until now, but why are NWO still getting things their own way, but not dominating the whole show? For me, this angle needs to be all or nothing, and Arn still doing things makes everything sit somewhere in the middle.

    With that being said, regarding the segment itself, The BlueBloods wanting a title shot is solid, and they should beat The Harlem Shake to get one.

    Hart/Heenan was a strange segment with the two heels sharing words. I enjoy these scenarios though and the banter was good for a period, until Hart got angry. Heenan needing to respect the hands that feed him doesn’t make sense as a saying, especially with Heenan being around longer. If anything, Bret should respect Heenan based off of Bret’s point. This felt a little off, but it was funny that Bret shut up as soon as Heenan’s boys appeared. I look forward to seeing if anything comes of this.

    DDP and Piper get a nice win against more NWO members. Nothing massive in this in terms of angle, but every match that is WCW vs. NWO feels like a big deal anyway. A good win here for DDP and Piper as well.

    I almost forgot about the confrontation between DDP and Hart but I bloody remember it after this. The attack was BRUTAL with two Piledrivers through the table. I hope you play this a little smart and have DDP miss a few weeks after this. On another note, DDP being distracted with a non NWO feud again is interesting. Makes me think he’ll be crucial in the long run.

    LOVED Mr. Perfect dressed as Sting and pretending to fly, that is honestly hilarious. From there, the use of the baseball bat, and then once he got serious and wiped the paint was all written very well. Hennig/Sting should be a fun program and this was a great segment.

    Jericho/Nash time. The NWO showing up out of nowhere and creating a barricade so Nash can have his way with Jericho is a smart move. Entertaining as hell and really stacking the odds against Jericho. Jericho getting beaten down but eventually making a comeback is huge for him. The DQ finish protects both men even if Jericho damn near looks invincible with getting the advantage over Nash here. The all out brawl afterwards is HUGE here though. WCW vs. NWO, how bloody exciting.

    Outside of that, Jericho getting a look at the title, before Booker does and Goldberg looks away keepw things very interesting. More importantly though, unlike the entire NWO, WCW outside of DDP/Hart are together as one. I wonder whether this is a turning point in the war.

    Another really fun show here mate. Angles progressed nicely, and there were really only one or two little things I wasn’t completely sold on. Still, things ticking along wonderfully here, looking forward to Thunder and that Extreme Rules match.

    Re: Death of the New World Order


    TO THE EXTREME

    PREVIEW
    It is rare that the world of extreme enters the old school haven that is World Championship Wrestling. Built on names of the past, a rich history in the ring and fans who have been watching for generations. Tonight, all that history gets thrown out the window because we’re about to go to the limit. The strange relationship between Kanyon and Raven – WCW World Tag Team Champions – appears set to reach its boiling point and has only further simmered to the top with the arrival of Stevie Richards. After arriving in WCW last week, it was Richards that demanded a match with Kanyon under Extreme Rules to give Kanyon a sample of the hell he has put Raven through. Will Kanyon get the punishment he so richly deserves or will he find a way to slither towards success like he has done for months?

    While the world had their attention on the final days before Super Brawl IX it was La Parka who grabbed the opportunity in front of him. Competing in a battle royal with several top competitors in World Championship Wrestling; La Parka overcame the odds and now stands as the number one contender to the WCW World Television Championship. In fact, La Parka holds a pinfall victory over the champion from a tag team contest last week between La Parka & Harlem Shake against Wrath & the Blue Bloods. Speaking of the champion, it was a rough week for the newly established Heenan Family coming off Super Brawl IX when they failed to secure a single victory. This week, Wrath will represent the family with his title on the line. Since becoming champion we have seen Wrath take on everyone in his path including the likes of Roddy Piper, The Giant and Stevie Ray. Can Wrath set the family on the right track or does La Parka have the champion’s number?

    Speaking of The Giant, he has been a man under a lot of observation by fans and pundits across the globe. During the finals weeks in the New World Order success was often hard for The Giant to find. The former World Champion has long since fallen from that high perch where he was one of the most feared competitors in the company. After taking a break for a few weeks and committing to WCW, The Giant has shown allegiance to World Championship Wrestling which has drawn the attention of his former associates. Sick of dealing with outside interference and sneak attacks it’s The Giant’s turn to make a statement. Opening the show this week, The Giant will challenge any member of the New World Order to a match!

    He shocked the world on Nitro and tonight Rick Steiner gets the chance to explain his actions. Having turned on his partner, Kenny Kaos, this leaves Rick Steiner as a free agent in the world of WCW. Some people seek to join groups and form alliances. Will Rick Steiner look for a new partnership or perhaps link up with his brother in the nWo? Only time will tell and you cannot miss the first statement from Rick Steiner – it’s sure to be very entertaining.

    In the main event of the evening it will be a tag team contest with a most important stipulation. The winner of this match will challenge for the WCW World Tag Team Titles in ten days at Uncensored. The champions are a complete mess right now and that leaves many to believe that the belts are ripe for the picking. In one corner, the Blue Bloods stand as two men who believe they should’ve got this chance at Super Brawl IX instead of a three-way tag team contest. Dave Taylor and Bobby Eaton have been on a roll since returning to WCW and own a pinfall victory over the champions. In the opposite corner, Harlem Shake are the new kids on the block. Tag team specialist Stevie Ray has formed a friendship with Disco Inferno and together they have embraced the alliance which has captured the interests of fans around the world. They present a fun and exciting atmosphere whenever they enter the arena. Who will win and advance to the title match? Will the Blue Bloods finally get that standard tag team match they’ve been complaining about or can Harlem Shake upset the more experience team to advance to a chance at championship gold?



    Confirmed Matches:
    WCW World Tag Team Contendership:
    Blue Bloods vs. Harlem Shake

    Extreme Rules Match:
    Kanyon vs. Stevie Richards

    WCW World Television Title:
    Wrath (c) vs. La Parka

    The Giant will issue an open challenge to any member of the New World Order

    Rick Steiner comments on his assault of Kenny Kaos from nWo Nitro

    Booker T, Lex Luger, Dean Malenko & Sting are all confirmed for Thunder

    Re: Death of the New World Order

    A pretty good card announced here for an episode of Thunder. I expect The Bluebloods to finally become number one contenders and Wrath to defeat La Parka. Not completely sure which way the Extreme Rules match will go but that is the one I am most interested in. This Raven/Kanyon/Richards angle is entertaning as hell right now. Either way, I think shit blows up tonight.

    Giant and NWO segment should be solid, and I'm looking forward to hearing what Rick Steiner has to say after turning on his partner.

    Should be a fun show, as always, I'll be reading.

    Re: Death of the New World Order

    Wanted to drop in with some feedback on your recent stuff, EZ3. I’ve pretty much fallen off completely in terms of BTB this past month, but getting caught up with shows now. Sorry about not leaving feedback for SuperBrawl. Few comments on that show firstly;


    Opening video. As someone that typically puts a lot of thought and effort into these, I always appreciate seeing a good opening package for a big show, and this set the tone brilliantly for the PPV ahead, adding importance to the titles, and having the revered Commissioner be the one to talk through this added an extra touch of legitimacy to what was being said. If I had one thing I’d have liked to see here though it would’ve been some comments about the forces that are stripping away the tradition of WCW and the honour of being a champion (that being the greed of the nWo) given what they were setting their sights on in this show.


    Szumi had a few strong words on certain things that were booked on this show, some of which I agreed with and some I did not. Namely, Hogan taking the fall in the six man tag. I’ll not labour the point, as it’s been made, and you’ve explained that it’s part of the larger story, but I can’t envision any reason why it’s a good move for Hogan to job in anything other than a big one on one match for it to truly mean something.


    Where I differed in opinion was the arrival of Shane Douglas in WCW. Personally I really enjoyed that angle on the show. I completely agree with everything he said regarding Sting and his booking, but focusing here on Douglas, this is a time period where people would be jumping from promotion to promotion, and given Shane Douglas standing at that time in ECW, I personally think it’s a great idea to bring him in hot against Flair, where there’s obvious history that can be brought into play and explain why Douglas would target Naitch, so anybody left confused why Douglas was here will soon be informed. To me, that’s a really hot feud to run right now, with the added bonus of not being part of the over arching nWo angles.


    I didn’t have a problem with the introduction of the 619 last month, but my gripe about the move is that we’re already seeing counters to it. Granted, at least the counter here was part of the finish, but for me, I’d like to see a big highlight reel signature move like the 619 be built up for at least another couple of months before someone finally counters it. I’m pretty sure the move wasn’t protected in the wwe either when he debuted and it was still over, so this can be considered extreme nit picking, but still, just putting it out there.


    Other quick thoughts that I wanted to mention but I’m low on time; Loved the two-mask finish in the Eddie match versus Mascaras, and Booker T getting the win over Bret sets him up for a massive title opportunity against Nash.


    Moving on to Nitro, and that opening segment of Nash destroying the old tapes was incredible. Brilliant visual to have, and a perfect way to hammer home the fact that this is the nWo’s world now. One of the best ideas I’ve seen in any thread. Loved this. The whole new look to the show sends a big message too, driving home the importance of Nash gaining the Presidency. Bischoff joining the commentary booth again is a great move, as you’ve definitely lacked a pro nWo voice on the shows, and he’s a natural fit for the role.


    Only negative about using Smells like teen spirit as the theme for Nitro is that you’ve already got DDP using a knock off version of the same theme.


    I certainly appreciated the segment backstage of Bagwell looking for a spot in the nWo. It’s something you’d expect in this kind of situation, and I’m glad you’ve got someone at least taking that kind of pro-active action, looking out for themselves.


    I was a fan of Douglas big debut at SuperBrawl, and the follow up on Nitro was excellent too. Stage is set for a blood feud with Flair, and while I’ve never been a big fan of the guy - to me - Douglas feels like a big deal already. Flair painting Douglas as a jealous fan was a great touch too.


    Would’ve preferred a different opponent for Goldberg on this show, as I thought the loss hurt Bam Bam, given he’d only just got the added injection of Heenan last night. Bigelow should’ve been running over some jobber here, not getting beat imo. The interesting thing here obviously was Goldberg throwing a spanner in the works for Booker and his title shot. Whilst it makes sense for Goldberg to want the belt back, it feels like Bookers big main event shot is already being overshadowed by bigger stars. Sting helped him out earlier in this show, and now Goldberg is pushing in the way. Personally, it’d be best to focus on Booker here completely right now and give him the spotlight without the bigger stars getting in the way. I just fear that with Goldberg calling out for his shot, Booker - as the lesser name - could get lost in the shuffle, or worse, have people less interested in his title opportunity and more interested in seeing Goldberg back in the hunt.


    You did a job of moving Goldberg out of the picture for now on Thunder, but he casts a big shadow over Bookers shot, knowing he’ll be involved in some form of contender match at Uncensored. What I did like was Nash blowing off Booker as a threat. I expect over the coming weeks, Booker will eventually plant some seeds of doubt in Nashs mind ahead of that title shot.


    Not sure what the intention is with Heenans Family jobbing out again on Thunder. It feels like the momentum gained at the PPV is now stripped away, and the legs have been cut from under Wrath and Bigelow. A shame, because You’d been doing a good job until this point with Wrath in particular.


    Also, giving away Bret vs Flair unadvertised with no build up makes no sense to me. That’s a big money PPV match imo.


    I’m really not into the Hogan infighting in the nWo right now. As a reader, it feels almost like Hogan is working as some kind of double agent at the minute, purposely ruining the best laid plans of the nWo from the inside. Big leaguing the president by putting himself forward to face Goldberg (Hogan vs Goldberg 2 should also be a much bigger deal imo) didn’t make a tonne of sense to me either. If Nash didn’t want Hogan, why not just tell Hogan to pipe down? Nash is the one with the power right now.


    I’ve enjoyed the angle with Bagwell looking to weasel his way into the nWo. Him begging Nash on Thunder was funny, and the progression on Nitro was decent too. Fun reading.


    Nitro was all about Jericho though, ultimately. A big night for Jericho, hinted at with the episode title, and the finish of the show was a great boost for the WCW guys after the recent successes of the nWo.


    Didn’t get to comment on everything going on, but wanted to drop my main thoughts on the recent slate of shows. I’ll be doing my best to keep up on a show by show basis from here!! Uncensored is shaping up as a massive card right now.

    Re: Death of the New World Order

    Thanks for the comments guys. Thought I would take a moment to address some points made by Wolfy. Thunder will be up later this evening.

    I was really proud of that segment. Obviously it's a spot that only works in time periods without major online publication of content so it was a perfect fit for this thread. I loved the idea of unless you have these events recorded on a VHS at home than you're never going to be able to see them again. It's over and I thought created a clear line in the sand for the old era versus this new one where the nWo (through Nash) have total control.

    I do want to address this point but fear going deep into it will spoil the future of the story. I'll do my best though because both Wolfy and Stojy have mentioned it. Hogan is absolutely not a double agent. It's a case of two top dogs competing for the same spot at the top. Nash has the World Title and is now the President of WCW but Hogan is the guy who united the two opposing factions to form the super group version of the New World Order that we have seen since the start of this thread. In any business if you have two top guys who feel like they are the leader they'll eventually start to have issues. The dynamic we have here is that Nash joined AFTER Hogan did all the work but it was Nash who got the title shot, claiming the title from Goldberg who took it from Hogan and then secured ultimate power with the Presidency. In Hogan's eyes none of Nash's success since December would have been possible had Hogan not put all the work in to form the nWo as we know them now. Hogan isn't ruining the nWo - he's seeing control quickly slip from his grasp and into the hands of Kevin Nash. That's why he is taking action right now. As to why Nash couldn't overrule Hogan? Well, if you remember back to the start of the thread before Bischoff got axed it was revealed that Hogan has basically a God contract where he controls everything regarding himself. Thus, Nash can't squash the match between Hogan and Goldberg. It's a passive aggressive battle for power - both men have their own form of power but right now neither can overrule the other for total control. If you go back and look at some of the promos I'm very selective in the words for both Hogan and Nash regarding who is the leader of the New World Order. It's all in the details.

    Final point, I know Stojy has mentioned it a couple of times and that's the confusion around Bischoff's appointment as commentator. The answer is in the Starrcade segment where Bischoff is told by the nWo they will not help him against Flair. It's not about who is there, it's all about who isn't there.
