    TTO: The Vinyl Greatest Hits Collection and The No nWo Reunion Tour

    Backstage of Allstate Arena
    May 15, 2002
    07:30 PM



    The scene is set. A man peeks his head through the curtain quick, noticing the thousands of fans filing into the arena. He walks a few paces back, where two other men are right there waiting for him, each looking just a little pensive. The man looks at the other three, examining their nerves, and lets out a deep breath through his grin.


    Steve Borden: Man… feels like it’s been almost a decade, not almost two months, huh?


    *wink wink*


    Kevin Nash: This has been a long time comin’ though. And you saw it out there. Two months may have come and gone, but there’s still a whole lot of people out there who want to watch Dubya-See-Dubya.


    Hulk Hogan: And they’re gonna get in spades, brother! Starting tonight, we’re gonna show the world that we’re about to be the number one company all over again, baby!


    Hogan, Nash, and Borden all share a grin. Nash, however, spots the continued nerves of one man.


    Kevin Nash: You good, Uncle Eric?


    The final, fourth man lets out a nervous breath.


    Eric Bischoff: I’m trying to be, gents. We’ve put a lot of work into tonight. A lot of planning. We’ve survived what should’ve been the final death strike to this company. But thanks to the three of you, we live on. Hulk and Kevin… it’s your money that is giving WCW a new lease on life. And Steve… we all know that you’re the glue holding this ship together. You three are the reason why I’m standing here tonight… I’m just trying to take it all in.


    All four men ponder what tonight is.


    Hulk Hogan: It’s a lot to take in, Easy E. I mean, hell – who would’ve ever thought that me and Kevin freaking Nash would be trying to help Dubya-See-Dubya stay in business!? Ain't Big Kev the cigarette and me the cancer??


    All four men share a laugh.


    Steve Borden: This is a chance for all of us. A chance for you and Kev to prove so many people wrong about who you are. Eric… a chance to move on from the past. A chance for all of us to make up for mistakes of time gone by… this is our moment. Who cares about what anyone outside of this arena says? We have fans filing in to see WCW. We have a locker room full of men and women who want to be here, wrestling for this company… wrestling to prove they belong, that they’re good enough to be on national TV. Forget the critics. Forget whether or not we don’t match up to the WWF in the ratings after this hiatus. All that matters is that right now… World Championship Wrestling is about to go live. Nitro is about to go live.


    Borden stares at his three partners in business.


    Steve Borden: Let’s just take it all in… let’s just enjoy tonight.


    Eric Bischoff: And let’s put on the greatest RASSLIN’ show we know how!


    The over the top, Ted Turner style Southern drawl from Bischoff ends with a grin from him, and a laugh from everyone else.


    WCW is back. Through all the turmoil, the loss of sponsors, the loss of money, the departures of superstars, yet another hiatus, the loss of friends… here we are, returning. Maybe WCW will compete with the WWF? Maybe WCW will be a clear #2 promotion after too much upheaval and blackouts? Tonight… none of that matters.
















    Kevin Nash: But for God’s sake… let’s leave the nWo dead and buried in the ground this time!


    No nWo Reunion Tour indeed.

    Well, I imagine anyone that’s ever followed your BTB exploits in the past will be all too familiar with the letters TTO. And I’d wager they’re all pretty excited to see this pop up. Not to knock your Russolicious efforts, but WCW is your REAL wheelhouse. Obviously looking forward to seeing this. Glad that you’ve made it clear off the bat that there’s no nWo too.

    TTO is one of the best projects I've ever read from my lurking days so this is pretty cool to see.

    HOLY FUCK!!! Yass! I can't fucking wait for this mate, I think I've mentioned before I've bookmarked your work from the site that shan't be named, and while I enjoyed Empire more because I followed it in real time, TTO is just one of THE bookers from there. I can't wait to see what you do with this ma man :D

    Hyped for some TTO but that lemon yellow for Hogan is absolutely awful.

    Pumped to see what happens here.


    Sometimes I write stuff on the internet and people like it (sometimes).

    I've been waiting for an update on your previous work so I can finally give some sort of feedback and comments. Everyone seems excited for this and I cannot wait to see what comes out of this.

    WCW will suit you well given how often you change direction

    I kid, I kid. I'm disappointed your other one has ended as I felt like we were on the cusp of something great coming, but still excited to see this. I don't know wtf TTO is, but it's certainly got people pumped!

    You know I'll be reading, dude.

    Re: TTO: The Vinyl Greatest Hits Collection and The No nWo Reunion Tour

    Okay… so first off, Keef wins Feedback of the Year Award, because that was some damn straight funny shit!

    Seriously, though, thank you all for the love. I turned 30 the day I posted this thread, as like a symbolic, “Holy fuck I am old” moment, and this is a nice reminder of my youth and what I did all these years ago. I have not yet truly decided how much of the original TTO I will be posting. I know I definitely plan on posting every PPV, and a recap that I posted for each month prior to the PPV. It’s not new material, just stuff I have written as a recap of what happened many years prior. I will definitely be posting some other highlight moments of Nitros throughout this, maybe a whole show, maybe just segments, not sure. I’ll definitely post symbolic moments too, like the first show, and some of the other backstage segments from the original.

    Once I get to the New TTO writing, expect slow updates. I do not get the time to write much. I’ll be lucky to get a show out once every 2 weeks. But, I’m cognizant of the fact that my chances of getting to write are getting less, and that means I want to FINALLY get around to writing some of the sequel that I, albeit probably foolishly, started after TTO seemingly ended.

    And for those who loved getting to have control of things in TTO in the past with the voting scenarios that really helped make this project more popular – you fuckers will still have say on multiple scenarios!

    Because some of it will involve right around where we're at in game time - May 2002 - I will most likely, but not definitely, post "real time" updates of things going on with TTO and mix and mash the two timelines.

    6:37 PM


    Two men sat around the parlor of one’s home, sipping on a post-dinner scotch, and taking a few moments to simply relax. It was the home owner who started this conversation.

    Eric Bischoff: So we go again tomorrow. We ready for this?

    The other man took a sip, savored the whiskey, and responded with a smile.

    Steve Borden: I think we’re more ready now than we were one year ago, if that means anything!

    The two men couldn’t help but share a laugh at that statement.

    Eric Bischoff: We learned a lot about how to work with each other in the last year, Steve. I’ve made mistakes, and so have you. We’ve been humbled in the last year. This company is certainly the reason why I keep my hair short now. It’s a lot easier to dye little hair than it is a full head!

    Steve Borden: Shh, I don’t need to hear that, Eric. I’m not far off from needing it myself!

    It’s all good laughs, all good times right now. And why shouldn’t it be?

    Eric Bischoff: Well, I got news for you… it’s coming haha! I’m surprise you don’t need it now. In the last year alone, let’s look at what we’ve gone through. Survive a third cancellation of Nitro in twelve months, survive no money from the sponsors, survive losing one-third of our ownership team that saved the company in the first place… kind of twice really, no offense… and somehow find a way to bring it all back together for one more run.

    Steve Borden: It’s certainly been a wild and crazy year, huh?

    Eric Bischoff: If I didn’t know any better, Steve, I’d say this isn’t even real life, and someone’s just making all this shit up!

    …

    Steve Borden: But yet, here we are in. 2002. UPN Network now… and somehow we’re going to be live on national television tomorrow.

    Bischoff cannot help but let out another delirious laugh at the reality of their situation.

    Eric Bischoff: Seriously… how in the hell did we get here!?



    Well kiddies, why don’t we take a stroll down memory lane and find out.







    And now, let’s start posting some old TTO shit!

    Re: TTO: The Vinyl Greatest Hits Collection and The No nWo Reunion Tour

    Here it is, ladies and gentlemen. The very first TTO post, in all of its completely unedited glory. For those of you old fuckers like me - and Wolfy - this was first posted 13 years, 2 months, and 10 days ago. Because I am fucking old.

    I will look to leave the entirety of these old posts unedited. So, because this was written 13 years ago, I promise you some of it will be bad writing. Some of it will be cringeworthy! Some of it will definitely be politically incorrect. But hey, nostalgia for me.




    World Championship Wrestling was once looked as the greatest wrestling promotion in the world. Hell, it was the number one promotion in the world for quite a while, as it beat out World Wrestling Federation in the “Monday Night Ratings Wars” for 86 straight weeks. Through major angles like the New World Order, WCW propelled itself to greatness by using the older stars like Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, Ric Flair, and Sting to headline Pay Per View’s while the younger and talented guys like Chris Benoit, Dean Malenko, Eddie Guerrero, Rey Misterio Jr., Chris Jericho, Booker T, and many others were stuck in the midcard, putting in countless excellent matches, but receiving no credit for those matches. WCW started to get old, fast. Angles and storylines were stale, matches were over-done or they sucked, silly gimmicks, and mainly, the backstage politics, all led to the death of WCW. World Championship Wrestling was once the greatest thing in professional wrestling, only to turn into a complete joke. WCW had its last show March 26, 2001, in Panama City, Florida. It was a “Night of Champions”, headline by Ric Flair facing off against old time rival Sting, with both men hugging each other afterwards as WCW ended a show for the final time. WCW was dead.

    But what if WCW didn’t die? What if the legacy of World Championship Wrestling continued on? Well, in this alternate reality, WCW hangs on. They fight back, under new ownership. But the problem there is, they have to find a financial backer for this new ownership!

    March 25, 2001- WCW Headquarters- 3:33 PM

    Eric Bischoff was roaming through the halls of World Championship Wrestling Headquarters, thoughts running through his mind at a mile a minute. What am I going to say to the wrestlers and staff? How am I going to get a new backer for WCW? Who am I going to get as a backer for WCW? How can I tell them WWF may buy out WCW? How many guys would I have to let go if WCW does survive? All of these questions were just a small amount of thoughts and questions rolling through Bischoff’s mind. In about 20 minutes, a meeting is going to be starting where all members of WCW will be in attendance. Every staff member, including the ring crew, and every wrestler, from the highest of the highs, to the lowest of the lows, will be at the meeting. Bischoff made his way to the meeting, figuring it’d be best to be there early, and greet everyone who came in. Eric made his way to the conference room of Headquarters, and walked into the room, and to his surprise, he wasn’t alone in the room. The two living legends of WCW themselves were in the room talking to each other; Steve Borden and Ric Flair, The Stinger himself and The Nature Boy.

    Bischoff: Steve, Ric, how are you?

    Steve Borden: Afternoon Er-

    Ric Flair: Look Bischoff, I’m going to cut to the chase quick, screw all this other crap. What is the future of WCW? What is going on? And Bischoff, shoot me straight, Steve and I helped make this company, so damn it, we deserve to know now what is going on.

    Bischoff: Ric, normally, I would just say wait until the meeting, but in these circumstances, I won’t. I will fill you in Ric, and you too Steve. Look, WCW is a dead fish. We have no owner, no one wants to financially back us, and worst of all… McMahon wants to buy the company.

    Flair: Hell no! Hold on a God damn minute here Eric! Are you trying to tell me that Vince McMahon wants to buy WCW!? I said shoot me straight God damn it, so don’t lie to me!

    Bischoff: I’m not lying Ric, Vince wants to buy WCW. He placed a bid to Turner for 10 million dollars. Ted told me I have until the end of Nitro tomorrow night to tell him I had a backer for WCW, or he was going to sell to McMahon.

    Flair begins to speak again, but Bischoff cuts him off.

    Bischoff: Look Ric, I’m trying to do everything I can here to get a backer. I have been calling any company I can. I almost struck a deal with Fuscient Media but the damn bastards pulled out on me at the last minute once they found out we’d have no TV deal at all. I mean, I’m in neck deep water here Ric, and the water is continuing to rise. I am trying to find a backer, but I’m not having any luck.

    Borden: Eric, everything will work out in the end. I have a feeling that you’re going to find a backer.

    A few staff members and lower placed wrestlers were starting to arrive, and the talk was cut short.

    Flair: We’ll talk about this later, Bischoff. I want to know who you’re in contact with, everything. I want WCW to stay alive, and I am going to do whatever it takes to keep WCW alive, you hear me?

    Borden’s eyes widen and he looks as if a light bulb just popped in his head. Before he can say anything though, Eric says…

    Bischoff: I hear you Ric, now go sit down, the meeting’s about to start.

    Ric and Steve go find a seat, as Eric goes up to the head of the room. He waits a few minutes for everyone to get settled, and begins the meeting.

    Bischoff: Alright everyone, thank you for showing up, it means a lot. I am going to keep this relatively quick, so you should be out of here shortly.

    Bischoff takes a deep breath, and begins.

    Bischoff: As you all know, WCW, all of us, have a problem. AOL-Time Warner wants out, they no longer want to back the company. After Nitro concludes tomorrow night, Turner will cease to exist as the ‘owner’ of the company, and the company could very well be non-existent. There are two options right now. One, WCW gets a new financial backer. Now, I have been working hard for all of this year to try and find a new backer, as Turned told me after Starrcade 2000 that if things continued to go badly, they would back out. Well, things have continued to go bad financially, and AOL-Time Warner is backing out. I almost had a deal with Fuscient Media, but they back out once they found out WCW would have no TV time at all. Turner and TNT have decided that even if we could find a new financial backer, Nitro would be taken off the air as TNT and TBS both look to go in a new direction for their TV shows. Option two is Ted Turner sells WCW to Vince McMahon for 10 million dollars.

    There is a large amount of stirs and whispers from the group after Bischoff drops the bomb involving Vince.

    Bischoff: Now no way in hell am I going to let Vince McMahon buy this promotion. WCW is a legacy that has been built by each and every one of you, and I am not going to let what you all built be ruin and destroyed by that egomaniacal jackass! I don’t know how I am going to find a buyer within the next 30 or so hours, but some how, some way, WCW will get by. WCW will move along, and by God, WCW will once again become a global powerhouse, taking the professional wrestling industry by storm!

    A good amount of applause breaks out from Bischoff’s speech; the members of WCW don’t want WCW to die either.

    Bischoff: But men, if we’re going to become a big threat in the wrestling industry, things are going to have to change. The politics backstage, will be thrown away with. From now on, everyone has an equal chance to be a someone in WCW. And also, if we are going to find a, no, when we find a financial backer, money is going to be tight. We’re not going to have Ted Turner’s billions to throw around to people. So when we find a backer, everyone, I mean everyone *tosses a look to the area where Nash, Luger, and Bagwell among other are sitting* will take a cut in pay. Quite a large sum cut of pay too for many of you. But if you truly love this company and care about WCW’s legacy, the cut in money won’t matter to you. You’ll be a part of this company because you love to wrestle, and because you love WCW.

    Bischoff turns to his right, and grabs a thick stack of papers. He places the stack of papers on one side of the desk in front of him. He turns to his left then, grabs another stack of papers, this one thinner than the other stack, and he places them on the other side of the desk.

    Bischoff: These two stacks of papers are two sets of contracts. The first stack of contracts I places on the table are a copy of your AOL-Time Warner contracts. The second stack of contracts is the new contracts for the new WCW when we find a buyer. I am going to give you all a copy of your current AOL-Time Warner contract, as well as a new contract for the new WCW. You have two options. You can either sign the new contract, making your AOL-Time Warner contract null and void, or you can sit-out the rest of your AOL-Time Warner contract and collect all the money from it. By tomorrow night before Nitro starts, I am expecting you to either give me a signed new WCW contract, or verbal confirmation that you are going to sit-out the rest of your AOL-Time Warner contract. The choice is now up to you ladies and gentleman, but let me remind you of something. Just because you sign the contract, does not mean you will still be apart of WCW.

    Bischoff: As said before, money will be tight, so not everybody will be able to stay aboard WCW, and in that case, if you sign the contract but we say we can’t afford to keep you on the roster, you may then either keep your AOL-Time Warner contract and sit that out, or you may be a free agent and pursue other options. That actually reminds me of another thing, you may also just make the decision to pursue other options, like trying to go into other companies… up north. You can have your AOL-Time Warner contract ripped up, but not sign a new contract. You have those options, go home, and think about those options, make a decision, and either call me to tell me of your options, or tell me tomorrow at Night of the Champions. You are free to leave, I shall see you all hopefully tomorrow.

    One by one, the staff and wrestlers of WCW stood up and left the conference room. Many men were talking amongst themselves, most likely asking each other if they thought WCW would get a buyer, and if they did, who would stay and leave WCW. The last men to leave the conference room were Booker T, Lance Storm, Ric Flair, and Steve Borden. Flair and Borden are the very last two, and Borden stares down Bischoff as Flair whispers into his ear. Bischoff wondered what was going on, and then… an idea popped into Bischoff’s mind.

    Re: TTO: The Vinyl Greatest Hits Collection and The No nWo Reunion Tour

    March 26, 2001- Backstage Nitro- 2:18 PM

    Bischoff has just walked into his office after meeting with the booking team and a few of the wrestlers, when he saw he had messages on his cell phone. Quickly, Bischoff decided to listen in.

    The messages as Bischoff predicted were from the wrestlers and staff of WCW. He received calls from Billy Kidman, Brian Adams & Bryan Clarke, Crowbar, and Road Warrior Animal that they all were going to sign the new WCW contracts if Bischoff could find an owner. Alex Wright, Brian Knobbs, the Rhodes’, MI Smooth, Reno, and Shawn Stasiak called to say they were going to either try and get into the WWF, or just didn’t ever want to be apart of the WCW environment again. Dusty and Dustin Rhodes however, were already given contracts from the WWF to return so they could run a storyline together. Bischoff was satisfied with who said they would return, and was only disappointed in the loss of Dustin and Dusty Rhodes because they were going straight to the WWF. Bischoff let out a sigh, and left the room once again, to try to find Ric Flair and Steve Borden.

    Bischoff searched and searched for Steve and Ric, but couldn’t find either man. Bischoff searched for over 40 minutes when finally, ready to give up on finding Steve, he turned around to go back to his office, where he saw Ric Flair and Steve Borden walking up to him.

    Eric Bischoff: Steve, Ric, just the men I wa-

    Steve quickly cut Bischoff off.

    Steve Borden: Eric, I don’t know if you saw me at the meeting, and could read the ideas that were going through my mind, but Eric, before I go any further, did you get a backer since our last meeting?

    Ric Flair: Of course he didn’t Steve!

    Bischoff: Steve, Ric’s right, I haven’t gotten a buyer yet; I don’t think I’m going to be able to find one at all.

    Bischoff looks right into Borden’s eyes, a look of plea, asking for help.

    Borden: I think you know what I plan to do then. The idea popped into my mind when the three of us were talking before the meeting started yesterday. I planned on saying it then, but I didn’t. Instead, I consulted the idea with Ric here, and…

    Flair: We want to buy WCW. We want to restore the legacy we built in the NWA to WCW by being the owners.

    Bischoff: That’s all well and good, but…

    Borden: But nothing Eric. The three of us can buy WCW, and run it back to greatness.

    Bischoff and Flair: WHAT!?

    Borden: Yes, the three of us. Ric, the two of us together don’t know how to fully run a company. Yeah, we can book, but Eric knows how to do the other essential tasks as an owner.

    Flair and Bischoff are both silent. Flair has a look of anger on his face, Bischoff a shocked look. Flair is pissed that Bischoff will still be running WCW, Bischoff shocked that he’s involved in the plan.

    Borden: Then it’s settled; the three of us together will run WCW.

    Flair: You hear that Bischoff? The three of us. Not just you, not just me, not just Steve, each and everyone of us. That means that you can’t make decisions unless the three of us have talked about it together, and the decision has been agreed upon. You understand that asshole?

    Bischoff: Yeah, I understand that Ric. The three of us all work together to practically rebuild WCW from the bottom up to be a great promotion once again, where the three of us make decisions that are good for business, despite the relationships we have with each other and other people. Can you agree to that Ric?

    Flair: I’m not the one who likes to screw around with people’s lives Eric. My word is my bond, now if the same could actually be said for you…

    Borden, realizing he is going to have to be the man-in-the-middle between the two, is quick to try and restore order.

    Borden: Look guys, we have to be professionals and men here. If we want to make WCW great again, the three of us all have to work together, and let bygones be bygones. Now shake hands like professionals so we can move on with our lives and announce the new ownership to Ted Turner, WCW, and the world.

    Flair and Bischoff look at Steve dumbfounded, but Bischoff puts his hand out to Ric to shake it. Ric quickly shakes Bischoff’s hand, and released the shake.

    Borden: Good, now let’s see, it is now 3:26, the pre-show meeting starts in about a half an hour. Let’s go there so we can announce the new partnership.



    March 26, 2001- Pre-Nitro Meeting- 3:58 PM

    All the staff and wrestlers of WCW were sitting down in chairs, as Eric Bischoff stood at the top of the room, Ric Flair on his left, Steve Borden on his right.

    Eric Bischoff: Alright guys, most of you already know the run-down for tonight, if you don’t, don’t worry about it, the run-down will be on the white board in here for you to look at after the meeting.

    Bischoff takes a deep breath, trying to hold in an ear-to-ear grin.

    Bischoff: You see, the original intent on this meeting was to simply tell you the run-down of Night of the Champions, and say that this would be the last show we ever had as the company called World Championship Wrestling. But you see, all that changed about 30 minutes ago. These two legends next to me, have concocted a marvelous plan that has just saved WCW. So Steve, Ric, why don’t you two make it official.

    Flair: Boys, World Championship Wrestling as we know it has been changed for the better because Steve and I…

    Borden: along with Eric…

    Flair: …have officially made it known to Bischoff…

    Borden: …that we are going to purchase WCW with Bischoff!

    Bischoff: The three of are going to call Ted after Nitro to tell the old man that WCW isn’t going to the WWF, but staying in the hands of three men who helped make it what is once was; the number one promotion in the world!

    There’s a round of applause and lots of hooting and hollering from the boys, as they are happy to hear the great news.

    Bischoff: Now as you all know, I gave you all a new WCW contract yesterday, as well as a copy of your AOL Time-Warner contracts. So far, the following men have opted to sit-out the rest of their AOL-Time Warner contract and not be a part of the new WCW: Alex Wright, Brian Knobbs, MI Smooth, and Shawn Stasiak. Dustin and Dusty Rhodes have already signed WWF Contracts, and Reno has decided to leave WCW in hopes of signing with the WWF. Although these men have decided to not stay in WCW, they are still welcome to compete tonight. However, Billy Kidman, Brian Adams, Bryan Clarke, Crowbar, and Road Warrior Animal have all already stated they would and have now signed new WCW contracts!

    Another short round of applause for the men who already signed to WCW begins. Instead of Bischoff resuming talking, it is Steve Borden who does.

    Borden: But now is not the time for anymore celebration. Now we need you all to decide: Are you staying with AOL-Time Warner, or are you truly WCW. You all should have your contracts with you. Think about what you want to do, and make the decision. Sign the WCW contract and give to one of us three, or hand Eric your AOL-Time Warner contract, he’ll know that it means you want to sit out the contract and collect the loads of money that goes with it.

    Flair: Boys, the choice is yours now. You don’t have to make a decision yet, we’ve decided to give you all another week to think about this since we now know for a fact WCW isn’t going anywhere.

    Bischoff: Alright ladies and gentleman, this meeting is over. You can now go about your business as you would any other Nitro show. You’re all dismissed.

    At these words, the staff and wrestlers rose out of their seats, many leaving in groups, discussing their option yet again. Some men however, went right up to Eric, Ric, and Steve and handed them a signed copy of a new WCW contract. Those men were: Air Paris, AJ Styles, Booker T, Chavo Guerrero Jr., Chris Kanyon, Chuck Palumbo, Diamond Dallas Page, Elix Skipper, Evan Karagias Hugh Morris, Jamie Knoble, Johnny The Bull, Kid Romeo, Lance Storm, Lash Leroux, Mark Jindrak, Mike Sanders, Sean O’Haire, Shane Helms, Shannon Moore, Yang, Arn Anderson, Billy Silverman, Charles Robinson, Mike Rotunda, Mike Tenay, Nick Patrick, and Senior Official Randy Anderson.

    All in all, the three men were pleased with the sudden burst of signees, but were not surprised by many. Many of the wrestlers who already signed were the young, talented cruiserweights, or longtime veterans of WCW. The same went with the staff; they were either veterans of WCW, or were up and coming at their respective positions. Soon enough, everyone cleared out of the meeting, time past, and Night of the Champions went down without a problem. The results went as follows:
    ~The show opens up with a video montage of all the former WCW World Heavyweight Champions, with men like Ric Flair, Sting, and DDP being highlighted upon the most. Some former WCW World Champions such as Vince Russo, David Arquette, Chris Benoit, Vader, and Bret Hart weren’t even included.

    ~Booker T defeated Scott Steiner in a Champion vs. Champion Match with a Book End. Booker T now holds both the United States and World Heavyweight Championships.

    ~Filthy Animals (Rey Mysterio Jr. & Billy Kidman) defeated Yung Dragons (Yang & Hayashi) and 3 Count (Moore & Karagias) when Mysterio pinned Moore to advance into a match against Elix Skipper & Kid Romeo for the Cruiserweight Tag Team Belts.

    ~Shane Helms defeated Chavo Guerrero Jr. to retain his WCW Cruiserweight Championship after hitting a Vertebreaker.

    ~Sean O’Haire & Chuck Palumbo defeated Team Canada (Mike Awesome & Lance Storm) to retain the WCW World Tag Team Championship after O’Haire pinned Awesome with a Seanton Bomb.

    ~Shawn Stasiak defeated Bam Bam Bigelow with a Neckbreaker

    ~Filthy Animals (Kidman & Mysterio) defeated Team Canada (Skipper & Romeo) to win the WCW Cruiserweight Tag Team Championship after Kidman pinned Skipper with the Kid Krusher.

    ~Sting defeated Ric Flair with the Scorpion Deathlock

    ~Ric Flair and Sting hugged and celebrated in the ring, and the two cut a promo saying that the legends of WCW weren’t just going to let WCW die, and that WCW wasn’t going to die anytime soon. Flair took shots at Vince McMahon, Ted Turner, and TNT, and said that although TNT and Turner were kicking Nitro off the air, WCW would be back better than ever sooner or later, and to check wcw.com for updates. The show ended with Flair and Sting celebrating with the crowd, as announcers Tony Schiavone, Scott Hudson, and Mike Tenay all plug WCW.com, and to have fans visit WCW.com daily to check for updates on when WCW will be back.

    Re: TTO: The Vinyl Greatest Hits Collection and The No nWo Reunion Tour

    April 1, 2001- Ric Flair’s Mansion- 10:18 PM

    Almost a week has passed since Night of the Champions, and the week deadline for the members of WCW to decide on which contract they were going to choose was almost up. Eric Bischoff, Ric Flair, and Steve Borden were all sitting in the living room of the Flair Mansion in North Carolina, going through contracts, and discussing who all has signed with WCW, left WCW, and who is yet to make a decision.

    Ric Flair: Okay, so far the following people have left WCW: Alex Wright, Bam Bam Bigelow, Brian Knobbs, Dustin Rhodes, Dusty Rhodes, Leia Meow, Major Gunns, MI Smooth, Paisley, Reno, Shawn Stasiak, and Wayne Debruce.

    Steve Borden: Air Paris, AJ Styles, Big Vito, Billy Kidman, Booker T, Brian Adams, Bryan Clarke, Chavo Guerrero Jr., Chris Kanyon, Chuck Palumbo, Crowbar, Daffney, David Flair, Diamond Dallas Page, Don Harris, Elix Skipper, Hugh Morris, Jamie Knoble, Jim Duggan, Johnny The Bull, Kaz Hayashi, Kid Romeo, Konnan, Lance Storm, Larry Zbysko, Lash Leroux, Mark Jindrak, Midajah, Mike Awesome, Mike Sanders, Rey Mysterio Jr., Rick Steiner, Road Warrior Animal, Ron Harris, Sean O’Haire, Shane Helms, Shannon Moore, Terry Funk, The Wall, Tygress, and Yang have all signed the new WCW contracts. Chris Candido, Tammy Sytch, Miss Jones, and Norman Smiley all signed the WCW contracts, but we rejected their contracts and released them. Sid has decided to retire from wrestling after the incident at Sin.

    Eric Bischoff: And of course, Buff Bagwell, Goldberg, Jeff Jarrett, Kevin Nash, Lex Luger, Scott Steiner, Shane Douglas, Stevie Ray, and The Cat have not made a decision yet. Booker said that Stevie was going to retire from wrestling, but would possibly commentate or be a road agent for us.

    Borden: Buff and Lex will sign, Lex was telling me yesterday he wants to sign with us, same with Buff.

    Flair: Lord only knows what is up with Steiner, Shane Douglas, Jeff Jarrett, and Goldberg. What about Nash Bischoff? I assume you two have been in contact lately.

    Bischoff: Honestly, I haven’t been in touch with Nash at all. He hasn’t called me about the contracts, and I’m not going to call him. If he wants to stay with WCW, he should call me and tell me. I shouldn’t have to call him.

    Although that’s what Bischoff said, it isn’t what Bischoff meant. Bischoff had indeed called Kevin numerous times this week, but only ever gotten a hold of Kevin once. Nash didn’t like the pay he would receive as part of the new contract, and was thinking about not signing over that. That conversation was held on Thursday, and every time Bischoff called Kevin after that, he never got an answer from Kevin.

    Borden: Well, I say we set a deadline for tomorrow at 7 PM. If any of the undecided wrestlers haven’t made contact with any of us by the deadline, we call the wrestlers and get a decision from them right away.

    Flair: If they refuse to give us an answer, we cut up their AOL-Time Warner contract, and refuse to let them in WCW.

    Flair stared right at Bischoff as he said this, letting Bischoff know he was only talking about Kevin Nash.

    Bischoff: That sounds like a good idea. Now listen guys, I really think we need to make sure Scott Steiner and Jeff Jarrett sign the new contract. Both men were pretty over in WCW, and can be built as stars still for WCW. Shane Douglas is talented, and could be a big star as well. Goldberg is good for the draw value, Luger and Bagwell aren’t very important in my eyes…

    Flair: And for Nash?

    Borden: Ric, you need to stop worrying about Nash. You have to push your opinion of Nash to the side, and make a judgment as an owner who has no positive or negative opinion on Nash.

    Flair: If you say so Steve. I just don’t want there to be any politics from the likes of Kevin Nash in WCW anymore. He basically killed WCW before, and I am not going to let the legacy I helped build be tarnished by the likes of him.

    Borden: Alright Ric, I understand. Look, it’s getting late. Let’s be finished for the night, and we can have another meeting in the morning. Eric, are you staying in a hotel or here?

    Flair gave Bischoff an icy glare, letting Bischoff know he wasn’t welcomed in the Flair house outside of this meeting.

    Bischoff: I’m going to stay at a hotel Steve, thanks for asking though. Goodnight.

    Bischoff left the Flair house, and walked out to his car when his cell phone rang. It was from Kevin Nash.

    Bischoff: Kev?

    Kevin Nash: Yo Uncle Eric, you’re just the man I needed to talk to.

    Bischoff: About what Big Kev?

    Although Bischoff acted like he had no clue what Nash needed to talk about, he knew what Kevin needed to talk about, but wanted to make Kevin seem more important.

    Nash: It’s about these contracts.

    Bischoff: What about ‘em?

    Nash: Well you see, I want to come back to WCW and all, but these contracts really just don’t support me financially. Are you sure I can’t get any kind of pay raise?

    Bischoff: No Kev, you can’t. I want to, but it just isn’t an option.

    Nash: What if you fired guys like Shane Douglas and some godly wrestlers? That would make some room for me financially. I mean, WCW really doesn’t need that kind of crap all the time. We all know Douglas is a waste of space, air, and money, and the same can be said about a lot of those godly wrestlers.

    Bischoff: Even if I wanted to fire Douglas, I couldn’t. He, like you, is one of the people who are yet to verify if he will sign a new WCW contract or sit-out his AOL-Time Warner contract. And I can’t fire any of the cruiserweights Kev, Steve and Ric wouldn’t agree to that.

    Nash: Ah well, I guess not everyone can have such an intelligent view on things like I do.

    Bischoff almost started to laugh hysterically, but turned his laugh into an odd sounding sneeze

    Bischoff: Yeah, uh, I know what you mean. But Kev, come on man, we’ve been through a lot together in WCW, sign a new contract, and help make this place great again.

    Nash: I want to Eric, but there is nothing in this for me at all?... Unless… how about this idea Eric?

    Bischoff: Lay it on me Kev.

    Nash: I will sign your contract at the new price, only because of the respect and friendship I have with you, if you guarantee me a World Heavyweight Championship reign?

    Bischoff knew it was coming. Nash had been trying to play politics the whole phone call, and knew it was only a matter of time until Nash tried to play a title stipulation clause. Bischoff was at a crossroads, but had no idea what to do. Should he:

    A) Agree to giving Nash a World Title Reign, despite the fact he isn’t supposed to do something like this
    B) Tell Nash no, he either signs a contract like everyone else, or he doesn’t sign at all



    So this is where I make my first real edit from the original draft of the beginnings of TTO. Why? Because you Neanderthals don't get to vote on something that happened 13 years ago!

    Re: TTO: The Vinyl Greatest Hits Collection and The No nWo Reunion Tour

    Okay, firstly, if you're only 30 years old you need to cut out all of this "man I'm old" shit before I start feeling bad about myself!

    Secondly, I'm all about WCW Lives, so you've got a reader in me for sure. I mean, yeah, I'd read it if you were fantasy booking Heroes of Wrestling, but this is exactly my bag. Loving the premise, love that the roster's changing, all good. I know pretty much everyone on here has read all this before, but this is all new for me, and I like the looks.

    I do hope you're realistic with who would and wouldn't stick around, though. Big Kev doesn't strike me as the type to choose "pay cut and work" over "get paid more to do nothing".

    Re: TTO: The Vinyl Greatest Hits Collection and The No nWo Reunion Tour

    April 1, 2001- Outside Ric Flair’s Mansion- 11:13 PM

    Bischoff couldn’t believe what he was almost pulling himself into. Did he really want to go back on his word? He knew if WCW was to be successful, it couldn’t if have the politics backstage that this deal and Nash would bring. And it was at that point in time that Bischoff realized he was never Nash’s real friend. He was a puppet that Nash had all along. Bischoff was a man with power that Nash manipulated ever since 1996. Bischoff gave Nash the power… then, but not now… not any more.

    Bischoff: Fuck you.

    Nash was stunned. After a few moments of silence, Nash finally regained his voice.

    Nash: What the fuck did you just say to me Eric?

    Bischoff: You heard me; I said fuck you. Ever since you came into WCW in 1996, you played me like a fucking fiddle! You dangled me around like some damn poppet, using me to get yourself power and glory. I brought you into WCW! I gave you the New World Order! I gave you the WCW Heavyweight championship! I gave it all to you! When did I get something in return!? You didn’t give me shit! Not one fucking time did you repay me for all the things I did for you; not fucking once!

    Eric was fuming. All of his pent up rage of 5 years was now coming out of his mouth. He realized how much he hated Nash, and how he, nor WCW, needed him. Sure, maybe he was overreacting right now, maybe he didn't mean it all, maybe he was killing an actual friendship... but right now, he didn't care.

    Bischoff: You’re an egotistical dick, Kevin! You aren’t half the wrestler or name you think you are! If it wasn’t for the wrestling ability of Scott, and the name value of Terry, you wouldn’t be shit! You were never the big thing in the nWo! Never! You can’t wrestle worth shit! You can’t sell a PPV worth shit! You’re the fucking reason WCW is in the predicament it is in now! You and that fucking ‘finger-poke’ idea with Hogan back in ’99! You almost killed WCW before Kevin! I’m not going to let you come into the new WCW and kill it for good! Fuck you Kevin Nash!

    And with that said, Bischoff closed his cell phone, hanging up on Nash. He had given Nash everything in WCW, and because of that, WCW was no longer under the heavy financial backing of Ted Turner. WCW no longer had Monday Nitro, Thunder, or Saturday Night. Because of guys like Kevin Nash, WCW was almost dead. Eric Bischoff finally came to his sense, and realized, WCW does not need Kevin Nash. Eric Bischoff was done being involved with secret deals, however… Ric Flair was not.

    April 1, 2001- Ric Flair’s Bedroom- 11:21

    Ric Flair was on his cell phone with Jeff Jarrett, a man who was yet to sign a new WCW contract.

    Flair: Look Jeff, I understand you completely, I agree that you should get a run as the WCW World Heavyweight Champion. You are the Chosen One for this company, and in my opinion, the New Age Nature Boy.

    Jeff Jarrett: Ya damn right I am Ric, and that is why I think we should just add that stipulation into my new contract.

    Jeff Jarrett wanted the exact same thing Kevin Nash wanted; a guaranteed World Heavyweight Title reign. Jeff, however, was much more deserving a World Title reign than Nash. Jarrett was a better wrestler, arguably better on the mic than Nash, was younger, and wasn’t going to be like Nash (as much) with the backstage politics. Ric Flair wanted to give Jarrett the guaranteed World Heavyweight Title reign. He liked Jeff, and knew he was World Champion material. However, if Flair did this, wouldn’t he just be liked Bischoff then? Would he stoop down to Eric’s level if he made a secret agreement with Jeff, no matter how much he liked Jeff and thought Jeff deserved the reign? What would Steve do in this situation? What would he say if he found out? But then again, Ric thought, what would Jeff do if Ric wouldn’t allow him to have the guaranteed Title reign? Would he refuse to sign the contract and never return to WCW? Ladies and gentleman, Ric Flair had a dilemma.

    Should Ric…

    A) Agree to giving Jarrett a guaranteed World Heavyweight Championship Reign
    B) Tell Jarrett he won’t make any secret deals; he can’t have a guaranteed Reign



    Again, no actual vote takes place.

    Re: TTO: The Vinyl Greatest Hits Collection and The No nWo Reunion Tour

    April 1, 2001- Ric Flair’s Bedroom- 11:23

    Ric Flair: Well Jeff, I must say, you are without a doubt the future Ric Flair, and I have thought that from the first time I saw you wrestle. WCW is going to need you to help lead the company back to the status of number one promotion in the world. Jeff, you are indeed the Chosen One my man, and I am going to agree to get you a guaranteed World Heavyweight Championship reign if it means you staying with WCW anyways.

    Jeff Jarrett: That’s what I like to hear, Ric, that is what I like to hear. I’ll sign with the new WCW, and then, Jeff Jarrett is your new WCW World Heavyweight Champion!

    Flair: Well Jeff, I must say, just because I am giving you this Title reign doesn’t mean you’ll be getting it right away. I mean, Booker is a deserving champion and all… we want to give him a run with the belt.

    Jarrett: Hey, hey, hey, Ric, Booker can have his fun in the sun for a while, but you and I both know it, WCW will be the most successful with me on top.

    Flair: And in time, you will be on top. I just want to make sure that the feud and storyline is right. I don’t want you to win the World Title in some mediocre feud; it’s going to be the big thing.

    Jarrett: That’s what I’m talking about! It’s all set then, Ric. I’ll sign with WCW, you give me a guaranteed World Title reign.

    Flair: Yeah, its all set.

    Jarrett: Good, then I will talk to you later…

    Flair: Wait, Jeff! This uh, little talk… keep it quiet. I don’t want, um, the boys to know about it.

    Jarrett: Heh, sure thing Naitch. Later.

    Jarrett hung up his phone, and left Ric to think about what he had just done. Ric Flair just made a secret agreement with Jeff Jarrett, giving Jeff a guaranteed World Heavyweight Championship reign. Ric knew he shouldn’t have done that, but he wanted to see Jeff in WCW. He though Jeff could be the next “Nature Boy” in professional wrestling, and he wanted to be the man to make Jeff Jarrett a big star, bigger than he was now. Steve and Eric may not like this deal, and that is why he knew he just had to persuade them into giving him a reign as Champion; he couldn’t say he promised Jeff the Title. He had to keep this deal what it was, a secret.

    April 2, 2001- Ric Flair’s Mansion 8:13 PM

    It was the next night, and the three men were once again assembled in the mansion of Ric Flair. The deadline the three owners had made had now passed. It was time to assemble the final roster. At the time the deadline was made, the following superstars had not yet decided on signing with WCW or staying on their AOL-Time Warner contract; Buff Bagwell, Goldberg, Jeff Jarrett, Kevin Nash, Lex Luger, Scott Steiner, Shane Douglas, Stevie Ray, and The Cat. By now, those 9 superstars’ status with WCW was now fully known.

    Steve Borden: Alright, well, this is it guys- the WCW Roster is now about to be finalized! We each were to contact 3 men and find out if they were going to sign or not. Ric, why don’t you go first.

    Ric Flair: Alright Steve, let’s see. Jeff Jarrett has signed with us, as has Scott Steiner.

    Steve Borden: Lex and Buff both happily signed the new WCW contract. The both said they were looking to tag team together, and I have no problems letting the two do that. Shane Douglas is going to become a free agent. He is looking to just wrestle the independents for a while.

    Eric Bischoff: Stevie Ray is retiring from the business, and is going to be one of our road agents. The Cat has decided to become a free agent. He said he was looking to get away from the business for a while…

    Flair: And for Nash!?

    Bischoff: Let me guess, you think I probably wielded some secret deal with Nash that will give him some power backstage?

    Ric swallowed hard. Ric could see Eric doing something like that, but it was really Ric who made the secret deal.

    Bischoff: Well Ric, let me tell you something. Kevin Nash is an egotistical hack. That man played and controlled my mind for 4 years, and he isn’t doing that anymore! He tried to make a deal with me; he wanted a guaranteed World Heavyweight Title run! But you know what, Ric? I told him fuck no! This is the NEW World Championship Wrestling, and I wasn’t going to let there be any politics in this company. I knew you wouldn’t make a deal like that, and I knew Steve wouldn’t either. I said I am a changed man damn it, and that isn’t just me bull shitting the boys. I am a changed man. Kevin Nash is not a part of WCW.

    Ric felt like a complete ass. Here Eric openly said that he, Ric, would not make a secret deal like that with anyone in WCW. But in reality, Ric was the one who made a secret deal with Jeff Jarrett, giving him the same thing Kevin wanted Eric to do for him.

    Flair: I-I, I didn’t think that, Eric. I just wanted to know if that man would be a part of this company or not.

    Bischoff: Yeah, I bet Flair. God damn it man, you are going to have to learn to trust me! The three of us are a team, Ric, a team! We all control the fate of WCW, and if this company is going to survive, you have to trust me! You may be the Nature Boy in the ring, but damn man, this isn’t the Ric Flair show! This isn’t ‘what Flair says, go’, Ric. You’re the Nature Boy in the ring! You’re a legend in the ring! But when it comes to running a company, to making a company a success, I am the one who is the legend! I am! So for one second, Ric, just one fucking second, get rid of your ego and try and co-operate.

    Oh, that was it- Eric had hit a nerve. Ric was fuming! How dare Bischoff take shot after shot in Flair? Flair stood up, and dived over the coffee table that separated him and Bischoff, lunging himself into Bischoff, and tackling him into the chair Eric was sitting on. Flair started throwing wild right hands at the temple of Eric, but Borden quickly tackled Ric to the ground, restraining him.

    Borden: KNOCK IT OFF! The BOTH of you! You two must work together for this company survive and thrive! You both have egos, and you both need to get them in check. If you both want WCW to be a global powerhouse, and it to be the number on promotion in the world, you are going to have to set your differences aside and work together! I am not going to stay here and be the one who has to keep you two in line; I’m not some person in a day care. You two are adults and professionals, so act like it.

    Silence, lots and lots of silence. Flair and Bischoff exchange glares, while Borden lets out a deep breath.

    Borden: Look, let’s just call it a night. Everything we have is done. Our roster is finalized, and we know what we want to do schedule wise. Let’s just all go home, calm down, get some sleep, and go from there. Eric, you leave the room first.

    Eric leaves the room as said, Borden standing between the two men. Bischoff walks right out to his car and leaves. Flair retires to his room as well. WCW was a saved promotion, but how long can this saved promotion be a surviving promotion when two of the owners can’t even get along?

    Re: TTO: The Vinyl Greatest Hits Collection and The No nWo Reunion Tour

    ~World Championship Wrestling is indeed a saved promotion. When it seemed like the company would be bought out by Vince McMahon and the World Wrestling Federation, the trio of Eric Bischoff, Ric Flair, and Steve Borden have bought the company from Ted Turner. Although the company is still alive and running, WCW is left without any sort of Television deal. The Trio (as they will now be called) has decided on going through a dark phase throughout at least April. The company will not have any Pay Per View’s, but starting in May, the company will start running a light house show schedule throughout mainly the south east. WCW is looking to secure a television deal throughout the month of April, and hope to be able to have Monday Nitro starting at some time in May.

    ~World Championship Wrestling has announced its new official roster on WCW.com today. The roster is:

    Air Paris
    AJ Styles
    Big Vito
    Billy Kidman
    Booker T
    Brian Adams
    Bryan Clarke
    Chavo Guerrero Jr.
    Chris Kanyon
    Chuck Palumbo
    Crowbar
    Daffney
    David Flair
    Diamond Dallas Page
    Disco Inferno
    Don Harris
    Elix Skipper
    Evan Karagias
    Hugh Morris
    Jamie Noble
    Jeff Jarrett
    Jim Duggan
    Johnny The Bull
