Fairfax, VA
Patriot Center

The current WCW champs are as follows:
WCW World Champion: Sting (2/22/1998)

WCW World Tag Team Champions: The Outsiders (2/22/1998)
WCW World Television Champion: Booker T (2/22/1998)
WCW Cruiserweight Champion: Chris Jericho (1/24/1998)

WHAT IS ERIC BISCHOFF YAPPING ABOUT NOW? The show starts in the production truck where Bischoff orders Craig Leathers and Keith Mitchell not to show *that* tape. He’s quickly turning into Paul Heyman with that ponytail. Doug Dellinger is called in and he escorts Bischoff out of the truck. Once Bischoff is gone, they air the tape anyways.

The tape they air is from Monday Nitro where Kevin Nash shoves Hollywood Hogan. It’s the SHOVE OF DOOM, ladies and gents. As soon as he pushed Hogan back, I think WCW felt they knew exactly what direction to go into this time with that reaction.

Your hosts are Tony Schiavone, Bobby Heenan, and Lee Marshall.

STING REPELLING FROM A HELICOPTER WILL GO DOWN AS THE MOST DRAMATIC ENTRANCE IN THE HISTORY OF PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING. I honestly don’t think it had much of a dramatic tone to it. ‘Over the top’, maybe? But dramatic? Not in my eyes.

Your hosts are Tony Schiavone, Bobby Heenan, and Lee Marshall. Tony announces that Sting will defend the WCW world title against Randy Savage at Spring Stampede.
