EARLIER TODAY: CURT HENNIG and BARRY WINDHAM arrive to the building together and discuss going after the WCW world tag titles as if they haven’t teamed up before. Hennig’s reasoning for wanting the belts is so he can get his hands on Scott Hall and Kevin Nash for dumping him from the nWo.

HOUR NUMBER ONE! Your hosts are Tony Schiavone, Mike Tenay, and Larry Zbyszko. Larry Z takes his bow for being AWA royalty.

MORE EARLIER TODAY: The Nitro Girls were rehearsing one of their routines when SCOTT STEINER shows up wanting a piece of KIMBERLY and dogs her husband DDP. He grabs her by the arm and when she jerks away from him, she falls backwards over AC JAZZ and hits her head on the stage to knock her out. While phony looking, it’s certainly not as awful as a woman faking a miscarriage. Weird how everybody is mic’d for this though. I love how a chick is “out cold” and all I can do is look at FYRE. What is wrong with me?

Gene Okerlund brings out KONNAN and REY MYSTERIO JR. to the ring. Rey is still wearing the LWO t-shirt to show his Latino pride and talks about how important the mask is to him, which we’ve heard a million times. He mentions watching Lex Luger and Kevin Nash when he was growing up and wants to earn their respect – even if that means by beating them in the ring. Okay then. Over to Konnan, he says something about shooting a bank teller that’s in a wheelchair – and then tells Nash and Luger that he and Rey will make these two “strawberry fools” bow down to the short kings. Gene tells Konnan to be more specific, which is a professional way of saying – “WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU SAYING?” Looks like Konnan and Rey are issuing a challenge for SuperBrawl IX – Rey’s mask versus Nash’s hair or Lex’s hair or even Elizabeth’s hair for that matter. Bottom line, Konnan thinks because of the way he was treated, that Nash and Luger now have to sit down on the toilet when they pee. Gene thinks those are fighting words. I don’t know what how a person pees has to do with the nWo. WHATEVER, KONNAN.

Elsewhere, BRIAN ADAMS, HORACE HOGAN, SCOTT NORTON, and STEVIE RAY are standing around at the Minneapolis airport when VINCE(NT) joins them to mention that there aren’t any rental cars available, and they don’t have a reservation. Stevie Ray says he’s already taken care of it, and leads the nWo B&W crew to a limo. Oops – there’s only four seats and five guys, so Vince(nt) gets left behind to find his own way to the building. Holy crap – how OLD is that limo driver? Probably drove Verne Gagne’s happy ass around. Vince(nt) tries calling Kevin Nash when another limo pulls up in just a matter of seconds, and it’s the nWo Wolfpac inside. They are more than happy to give Vince(nt) a ride. Alright, then.

NITRO GIRLS~! No Kimberly, of course.

RIC FLAIR escorts ERIC BISCHOFF outside to the back of the Target Center where a conveniently placed dunking booth awaits. Weather report says it would be around 34 degrees in Minneapolis on this night, which seems rather warm to me for February, but what do I know. WCW employees are apparently going to line up to throw balls at the target. Bischoff says he’ll do it, but he’ll have the last laugh.

  • WCW World Tag Team Championship Tournament – First Round Match: Chris Benoit & Dean Malenko vs. Curt Hennig & Barry Windham

We still haven’t seen any graphics of any tournament brackets to know what the heck is going on here. Benoit and Hennig start the match for headlocks and shoulderblocks, but then Benoit kicks Hennig out to the floor. Back in, Hennig trades chops with Benoit, which is NEVER a smart thing to do. This is the first time we’ve seen Malenko in an official match in 1999. He tags in and runs wild on Hennig – and even catches Windham napping on the apron. Tag to Benoit, they both have elbows for Hennig. There’s the snap suplex to Hennig as we go to break. When we come back, all four men are returning to the ring from a brawl in the aisle. Benoit gives Hennig and Windham the DOUBLE NOGGIN KNOCKER. Malenko tags in and lands his signature knee kick. Hey look, ANGRY SCOTT DICKINSON is shown watching the match from the audience. As Hennig gets knocked to the floor, he baits Benoit out with a baseball slides and moves out of the way. He chops at Benoit and bounces his head off the guardrail. Back inside, Windham tags in and lands the LARIAT for two. Come on, Tony. Get more hyped for that lariat. He follows up with a gutwrench suplex for another two-count. More chops on Benoit. Hennig tags in for a double clothesline to Benoit and then knocks Malenko off the apron as a receipt for earlier. Windham then takes Benoit around ringside for some extra added violence. Back in again, the crowd seems behind Benoit. Hennig stops Benoit’s comeback with a thumb to the eye, but then Benoit finds the CRIPPLER CROSSFACE. Fearing a submission, Windham immediately jumps in the ring to break up the hold. Hennig misses an elbow drop off the second rope to set up a HOT TAG TO MALENKO! He again runs wild on Windham and delivers a beautiful vertical suplex for two. Back over to Benoit and Hennig, and the match breaks down. Out goes Hennig to the floor. Meanwhile, Windham delivers the SUPERPLEX to Malenko and floats over for the pin attempt, but Benoit breaks it up with a Swandive Headbutt. Nearly knocking himself out, Hennig jumps in and delivers the HENNIGPLEX to Benoit for the three-count to a big pop. (10:04 shown) Loved the finish and you can imagine with these four great wrestlers in the ring, you could only have a great match. ***¼

Meanwhile, JJ DILLON is leading the charge over by the dunking booth and throws some softballs to get Bischoff dunked. The luchadores line up behind him for some good times.

Two limos pull up to the Target Center – one for the nWo B&W and one for the nWo Wolfpac. Stevie Ray walks up to Kevin Nash and tries to rat out Vince(nt) for being a screwup, who then magically appears coming out of the nWo Wolfpac limo. As Stevie Ray starts to wonder how Vince(nt) was in the other limo, Scott Norton steps in asking everybody to just get along. Nash and Luger convince Stevie Ray they are all on the same team.

Stevie Ray is still complaining as the nWo B&W boys make their way to their locker room where four somewhat attractive women are waiting for them and refer to them only as “black and white guys”, which is technically accurate but still a strange thing to say out loud. Did Brian Adams say something about “jungle fever”? Yikes.

Monday Nitro, 1/25/99: They replay Hollywood Hogan whipping Chris Benoit with his weightlifting belt that helped him be able to slam Andre the Giant in the Pontiac Silverdome when Andre was 8 foot 9 inches tall and weighed in excess of over 972 pounds, brother.

Gene Okerlund welcomes RIC FLAIR to the ring. You may have heard of Carolina Flair, but tonight you get Minnesota Flair. First things first – Eric Bischoff is going to be wet all night long because there’s WCW employees lined up for a city block to take a shot at that dunking booth. Flair says Hollywood Hogan’s leer jet broke down, so he won’t be here tonight. The internal nWo mechanism is splitting apart while WCW is standing tall. Ain’t that right, Big Sexy? WOO! Off comes the jacket. Flair starts selling his match with Hogan at SuperBrawl IX over the WCW world title. Funk, Brisco, Rhodes, Race, Brody, Savage, Piper, and Hart are all namedropped. Speaking of Hart, Flair tells Bret to push his documentary somewhere else and names Chris Benoit the #1 contender to the U.S. title for a match at SuperBrawl IX. That’s when SCOTT HALL (with DISCO INFERNO not far behind) comes out. Flair may be the President of WCW, but Minneapolis came to see the nWo, says Scott. He may be able to boss Eric Bischoff around, but he doesn’t tell Scott Hall what to do. Hall claims Benoit would only be the #1 contender to the U.S. title because Benoit watches Flair’s car. He got the WCW world title off Goldberg and beat Bam Bam Bigelow in a ladder match last week, which has to mean something. Hall even threatens Flair, but Flair calls him “one half of a fantasy called Hall and Nash”. Hall says he’d be happy to prove himself against Benoit. Out comes Chris Benoit because this certainly concerns him. He says something about sticking his foot in Hall’s brown eye. Is that a Canadian term for butthole or something? Benoit and Flair clean house on Hall and Disco and then Flair announces Chris Benoit against Scott Hall for later tonight. WOO!

HOUR NUMBER TWO! Your hosts are Tony Schiavone, Mike Tenay, and Larry Zbyszko.

  • Van Hammer vs. Kenny Kaos

You know RAW just started, right? Tony, Mike, and Larry Z give condolences to the family of Giant Baba, who passed away back the day before. Not even ANGRY SCOTT DICKINSON can handle sitting through this match as he leaves during the first minute. Some cool looking moves though as Hammer delivers the chokeslam off the top rope and Kaos lands a springboard dropkick. I’d be okay with either one of those moves ending the match, but then a man (SANDMAN) comes down the aisle wrapped in barbed wire and carrying a Singapore cane. Alabama Slam by Hammer gets the win in 2:30. The man wrapped in barbed wire gets in the ring and beats the crap out of Hammer with the cane. Thankfully for Kaos, he rolls out of the ring, leaving Hammer to take the WHITE RUSSIAN LEGSWEEP. So much for being Raven’s brother or whatever. He gets on the mic and talks about how hardcore he is. He calls out Bam Bam Bigelow and says he ain’t leaving until Bigelow comes out to face him. Will he answer the challenge? We’ll find out when we come back! ½*

  • Hardcore Match: Bam Bam Bigelow vs. “King of Extreme”

We come back as BAM BAM BIGELOW walks out. Neither Tony nor Mike nor Larry Z have any idea who this guy is, which doesn’t bode well for Sandman’s WCW experience. He attacks Bigelow with the Singapore cane to start and chokes him in the corner. Bigelow heads to the floor, but takes a baseball slide from this guy. Bigelow catches him coming off the apron and backs him into the ringpost. He then runs the guy’s head into the ringpost. Back inside, Bigelow blasts him with a chairshot over the head. After some more damage, Bigelow hits him again this time over the back. Tony says there’s some serious “whacking” going on. WOW. The guy arms himself with the cane again and delivers a bulldog on the chair. Now the guy grabs his barbed wire and wraps up the corner. Tony suggests parents have their kids leave the room. They tease somebody being sent into the corner, but it doesn’t happen just yet. The guy puts his Singapore cane across Bigelow’s throat and delivers a legdrop. Bigelow comes back with a DDT on the chair. And now the guy gets whipped into the barbed wire corner for an avalanche. The Flying Headbutt connects. The GREETINGS FROM ASBURY PARK on the chair finally ends the “King of Extreme”. (6:12) Hey, where’s Raven at? They got a way’s to go until these matches are as fun as WWF Hardcore style in my opinion. **

Backstage, we see the head cameraman try to dunk Bischoff – he gets about 200 throws and then the camera cuts out.

We go to the nWo Black and White Promo Room like it’s still 1996 where Elizabeth and Lex Luger how great they are and how much fun it was to ruin Bill Goldberg.

NITRO GIRLS! No Kimberly means more FYRE!

Angry Scott Dickinson is shown backstage throwing softballs like a disgruntled employee would. He DOES manage to dunk Bischoff at least. The camera cuts out again. What’s up with the production tonight? Even Tony calls it out.

Backstage, we see BILLY KIDMAN snitching to DIAMOND DALLAS PAGE about Scott Steiner. Dallas goes hunting for Scott Steiner, and finds the nWo Wolfpac locker room. DDP asks where Steiner is. They won’t stooge on him. DDP says everybody better pray – especially Steiner. Steiner immediately emerges after DDP disappears, and we are led to believe he’s doing the nasty with some freak when a woman’s hand drags him back into whatever room he’s in. Nash tells Vince(nt) to go deliver a message to DDP saying that Scott Steiner will accept whatever he wants, a match, whatever – and then smack him in the mouth. Vince(nt) goes outside and tells Disco Inferno to go tell Diamond Dallas Page that Scott Steiner wants a match, and then slap him right in the mouth. That’ll be the cue for the rest of the nWo Wolfpac to come out and beat him down. Of course, Disco buys what Vince(nt) is selling, and goes to do their bidding.

DDP has made his way into the ring. You know he’s serious because he didn’t have time to walk out through the crowd. Disco Inferno follows after him with his message from the back. Oh, and one more thing – he then slaps DDP. He looks to the back – and nobody’s there. DDP gives him a high knee and a DIAMOND CUTTER, then walks away.

Back in the nWo Wolfpac dressing room, Vince(nt) gets his balls busted for what he did. Nash then says that Vince(nt) is actually getting smart, and the other guys begin to agree.

Elsewhere, DDP hops in a Cadillac, and drives away.

They can’t find Bobby Heenan, so Larry Z is forced to stick around. I love how he says he had other stuff to do tonight, which to me sounds like he’d rather be doing anything other than being at Nitro taping.

  • WCW Cruiserweight Championship: Billy Kidman (c) vs. Lash Leroux

LASH LEROUX makes his Nitro debut here. No, not the B-movie cowboy star from the 1940s and 1950s, but the Power Plant trainee. He’s wrestled sporadically on WCW Saturday Night over the past 6-8 months as a JTTS, but now he’s made it to prime time. He’s got the “L” side burns and wears a “double L” t-shirt (or “Double J” if you’re Jeff Jarrett) to the ring. Sign in the crowd says: “STEVIE RAY SOLD ME CRACK”. Kidman snapmares out of a hammerlock and takes Leroux down with a tilt-a-whirl headscissors. Leroux comes back with a headscissors out of the corner to send Kidman down the aisle. He then leaps off the apron and hurracanranas Kidman down. Lash ups the ante by setting up the steps and for the run and leap off the steps, but Kidman moves and Leroux goes flying over the guardrail. Kidman does a run and leap OVER the guardrail and gets more air time to nail Leroux. Back inside, Kidman lands a flying crossbody for two. WHERE IS HEENAN? Leroux catches Kidman with a sitout butterfly suplex. He starts choking Kidman to let you know who the heel is here. Leroux launches Kidman in the air as once he staggers up, he gives Kidman the Road Dogg jabs and does some SWEET breakdancing to then run Kidman down with a clothesline. Okay, I remember Leroux being fun, but this is ridiculous how much fun he is. He chills out with a chinlock on the mat while the crowd chants “GREEN BAY SUCKS”. I love this match. Kidman fights out and whips Leroux (who trips on his way and recovers nicely) into the corner. He wipes out Leroux with a Stinger Splash and Leroux takes a nose dive. Big flying splash by Kidman, but there’s no water in the pool. Leroux keeps Kidman grounded with some sort of arm lock which does not look very painful. Once he’s up, Kidman runs into a powerslam for two. He puts Kidman up in the corner for presumably a hurracanrana, but Kidman counters with a BK Bomb. BOTH MEN ARE DOWN! Kidman mounts his comeback and Leroux tries to cut him off with a crucifix, but Kidman counters and rolls up Leroux for two. Leroux hoists Kidman up and delivers a Samoan Driver, which will become his finish once he’s not a JTTS. Kidman flips out of a back suplex and hits the Tornado Bulldog for 1-2-NO! Leroux escapes a vertical suplex and gives Kidman the Protobomb. Now Leroux is ready to put Kidman away. Little does he know that YOU CAN’T POWERBOMB KIDMAN. Leroux is out cold. Kidman heads up top and delivers the SHOOTING STAR PRESS for another W. (7:57) Maybe I’m just a Lash Leroux mark, but WHAT A FUN JTTS MATCH. **½

Bobby Heenan is out back looking ready to throw softballs at the dunking booth. He decides not to throw them though because he’s got no beef with Bischoff – it’s between him and Flair. He decides to give the softballs to Bischoff because Heenan wants to be a standup guy, but then he slips on his way over to Bischoff and falls into the target – thus, sending Bischoff down into the chilly water. It’s always good to see Heenan having some fun. You don’t get to see much of the physical comedy side of Heenan in WCW.

HOLLYWOOD HOGAN and some Frank Stallone-looking guy riding around in a limo talk about – David Flair, I think? Did Hogan say “jiggly Jew?” Who’s this other guy? What are they talking about? They stop for gas and make fun of someone having arms skinnier than a gas pump hose. I don’t know.

Gene Okerlund is casually having coffee backstage with his main man BOOKER T. He admits 1998 didn’t end the way he had hoped thanks to Bret Hart tearing his ACL. The doctors told him to come back in six months, but all the fan mail he was receiving helped him to come back in three and a half months. After that match last week with Bret Hart, he vows to turn a negative into a positive. At SuperBrawl IX, he’s got a guy who is RED HOT right now – that nWo Wolfpac wannabe Disco Inferno. The BT Express is coming hard and Disco Inferno will get derailed on February 21 and the roof will get raised, now can you dig THAT?

  • WCW World Television Championship: Scott Steiner (c) (w/Buff Bagwell) vs. Chris Jericho

Bobby Heenan joins for the rest of the show. Steiner reminds us we are “mesmermized” by the greatest body in the world. Yes, you read that right. He claims DDP’s wife Kimberly is backstage flirting with him. Steiner tells DDP to get out of the way and let nature take it’s course: let Steiner’s body rock Kimberly’s body until she tells him who’s her daddy. Steiner’s body isn’t just build for pleasure and you don’t need no tape measure because he’s got the largest arms in the world. Big Poppa Pump is your hookup – holler if you hear him.

After a commercial break, Jericho makes his entrance and sends RALPHUS back to the locker room. They trade bicep poses and Jericho is in deep water here. Steiner will not be embarrassed by Jericho – he does that pretty good all on his own. He trips up Jericho and rains blows down on his head. Jericho receives a gorilla press slam, but then fires back on Steiner with a series of kicks. As Steiner rolls to the apron, Jericho lands a springboard dropkick to send Steiner to the floor. He ends up getting ping-ponged on the floor between Bagwell and Steiner. Steiner whips Jericho over the guardrail and bounces a chair off his head. He then runs Jericho into the ringpost and Bagwell thumbs Jericho in the eye. Jericho thumbs Steiner in the eye and snaps his neck on the top rope. He comes off the top with the flying back elbow. Jericho wants the COME ON BABY pin attempt, but Steiner IMMEDIATELY refuses to sell that shit and drops an elbow on him. The Steinerline sets up another elbow drop to the back. Steiner then pummels Jericho down in the corner and Bagwell chokes him when Steiner and the ref walk away. Jericho tries to chop back, but Steiner levels him with a gutwrench powerbomb. Steiner puts Jericho up in the tree of woe. Buff tries to feed Jericho some Dipping Dots, so Jericho manages to break loose and kick him away. Jericho stomps him from the apron and goes back inside the ring to put the boots to Steiner. SOMEBODY IS PISSED OFF HERE. Steiner gets Jericho on the mat and keeps him down there possibly for a conference. Back up, Jericho connects with a spinning heel kick for two. He pulls back on Steiner’s arms which makes no sense with a guy that big. He baits Bagwell on the apron and dropkicks him to the floor. Steiner throws Jericho away with a T-bone suplex and stands on his chest with both biceps going for two. Jericho comes back with a jawbreaker and knocks the wind out of Steiner with the Lionsault for 1-2-NO! The Steinerline puts Jericho down and follows up with the pumphandle slam. He covers Jericho, but pulls him up at two. Jericho leapfrogs over a backdrop, superkicks Steiner down, and decides to fight another day. BUT WAIT, IT’S PERRY SATURN – and he’s got a new dress and he’s clearly wearing makeup. YIKES. Jericho walks backwards into Saturn who punches him and sends him back into the ring and yells to the camera that “LIFE’S A DRAG”. Jericho is a STEINER RECLINER away from tapping out. (8:58) This was a WAR. ***

HOUR NUMBER THREE! Your hosts are Tony Schiavone, Mike Tenay, and Bobby Heenan.

Hey, remember when Bret Hart went on MAD TV and put Will Sasso in a Sharpshooter? This is the first of times you’ll see Will Sasso on a wrestling show – whether WCW or WWE.

It’s time to play “Guess the Nitro Girl” from the silhouette. It’s FYRE! I’ve watched this at least five or six times tonight.

KEVIN NASH, LEX LUGER, and ELIZABETH head out to respond to Konnan and Rey Mysterio Jr.’s challenge earlier. Lex does the nWo Wolfpac introductions, which sounds cornier than when Nash does it. They show off their long locks of hair for the audience – and don’t really take the challenge seriously. Nash and Luger end up putting Elizabeth’s hair on the line and not their own against Rey’s mask for SuperBrawl IX. What’s Konnan got to lose? There were better ways to make Konnan and Rey look stronger than they currently are instead of desperate enough to put up Rey’s mask for a fight, but whatever. Nobody will believe they have a snowball’s chance in hell – and THEY LOSE ANYWAYS. Just awful treatment.

ERNEST MILLER and SONNY OONO come out and talk down to everybody and issue an open challenge. They cut back to the locker room where the nWo manages to trick Scott Norton into thinking that Miller has called him out. Norton falls for it, and after he leaves, we see the nWo crew have a laugh.

  • Scott Norton vs. Ernest Miller (w/Sonny Oono)

Kudos to Miller for not backing down because Norton is ready to destroy this fool. Norton no-sells a thrust kick and runs Miller down with a clothesline. There’s a chop in the corner and an avalanche to really bust him up. Another chop to the chest to send Miller out. Back in, Norton delivers a short-arm clothesline. Miller catches Norton with a dropkick to the knee and starts kicking at him. WHERE’S MENG AT WHEN YOU NEED HIM? Norton grabs Miller trying another kick and powerslams him down. Norton catches another kick and pulls Miller into a clothesline. Now Norton starts DARING Miller who then low blows Norton because what else can he do? Norton ultimately won’t sell and chops Miller again. There’s a superkick to the chin, but again Norton will not sell. Miller’s chest is beat red. More chops. Miller catches Norton with a jawbreaker and chokes him in the corner. Norton fights out and runs him down with another clothesline. The struggles continues as Oono gets on the apron to offer some encouragement when Miller pulls him into the ring and throws him into Norton only so he can catch Norton not looking with another superkick to the chin. He wants the FELINER and connects, but Norton just bounces off the ropes and drills Miller with a clothesline. POWERBOMB, and the Minnesota crowd loves their Scott Norton. Good night. (6:12) Another struggle of a match – I like it. **½


Gene Okerlund brings out GOLDBERG to the ring. Goldberg wants everybody to forget about the past and talk turns to Bam Bam Bigelow who Gene calls an “extremist”. Goldberg ain’t skeered of Bigelow and tells him he’s next. SUPERBRAWL IX is getting STACKED.

When we come back, Dean Malenko and Ric Flair are taking softball shots at Bischoff, who is still promising that he will have the last laugh tonight as he gets dunked. Again he asks “where’s your kid, Flair?” YIKES.

  • Scott Hall (w/Disco Inferno) vs. Chris Benoit

Buffer mentions the winner faces BRET CLARK for the WCW U.S. title. Buffer also thinks Chris Benoit’s family tree is legendary in wrestling and his finish is the “Cripple Crossface”. I really don’t think so, Michael. Has he been drinking tonight or what? Bret Clark steals Mike Tenay’s headset for the remainder of this show to say hi to his cat Smoky. Benoit is a step ahead of Hall to start. Hall wants a test of strength despite being a head taller. Benoit blows snot at Hall and gets on his knees and crotch chops Hall before catching his kick and sending him away with a dragon screw leg whip. Benoit dropkicks the knee and Hall goes running. He surprises Hall with a baseball slide and gets some encouragement from Disco. Back in, Disco trips up Benoit although Hall misses an elbow. Hall goes to the eyes, but then he and Disco collide. As Benoit tries the Crippler Crossface, Disco pulls Benoit out to the floor. Nevermind that shit, HERE COMES MONGO. He nails Disco and beats him up the aisle back to the dressing room. Now that’s a SuperBrawl IX match I’d rather see. We see McMichael take Disco all the way to the Four Horsemen locker room where ARN ANDERSON is waiting with a tire iron. Commercials! When we come back, Benoit is still in control. They trade sleeperholds until Hall crotches Benoit on the top rope. The Fallaway Slam on Benoit gets two. Bret Hart decides to leave the broadcast table. Hall applies an abdominal stretch and uses the ropes for leverage. Benoit hiptosses out, but misses an elbow drop. Benoit chops out of the corner and runs Hall down with a clothesline. There’s the snap suplex and a backbreaker. Benoit wants the Swandive Headbutt and connects. Hey look, it’s Kevin Nash. Benoit knocks him to the floor and heads up top, but Hall is there to chopblock Benoit. With Benoit up in the corner, Hall gives him the OUTSIDER’S EDGE for the win. (8:52 shown) Seriously, why wouldn’t you rather want to see Benoit and Bret on PPV? Now you’ve got two heels facing off, so who does a guy root for? Match was fine, I suppose. **½

We check back in with Hollywood Hogan and that guido looking guy. Apparently, they are in Charlotte, North Carolina stalking DAVID FLAIR. Before Hogan and the guido do whatever it is they are going to do, we go back to the arena to see Ric Flair, Dean Malenko, and Arn Anderson watching them… and now we’re out of time.

Until next time, so long for now.
