WCW: Monday Nitro (01.25.99)

WCW: Monday Nitro
January 25, 1999
Dallas, TX
Reunion Arena

The current WCW champs are as follows:
WCW World Champion: Hollywood Hogan (1/4/1999)
WCW U.S. Champion: Bret Hart (11/30/1998)
WCW World Tag Team Champions: Vacant (1/7/1999)
WCW World Television Champion: Scott Steiner (12/28/1998)
WCW Cruiserweight Champion: Billy Kidman (11/22/1998)

They start the show with a flashback to last week’s Thunder when Vincent (or Vince as he wants to be called now) proclaimed he was the new leader of the nWo B&W (while wearing an nWo Wolfpac t-shirt) and realized he was being filmed. As it turns out, the people watching him were the nWo Wolfpac dudes (Hogan, Nash, etc.) hanging out in their limo. They did not look happy and let the crew know what time it is.

HOUR NUMBER ONE! Your hosts are Tony Schiavone, Mike Tenay, and Larry Zbyszko. Read the rest of this entry

Memphis Wrestling: (11.11.78)


Memphis Wrestling
November 11, 1978
Memphis, TN
WMC-TV Studios

The current Memphis wrestling champions are as follows:
AWA World Champion: Nick Bockwinkel (11/8/1975)
AWA Southern Heavyweight Champion: Don Fargo (11/6/1978)
AWA Southern Tag Team Champions: Jerry Lawler & Bill Dundee (11/6/1978)

SIDEBAR: I’m not going to pretend I am an expert on Memphis wrestling. I’ve watched random matches of the territory, but my insight on these shows will be coming from new eyes unlike the WWF and WCW programming that I grew up watching as a kid in North Carolina. I have watched the Memphis Heat documentary and I want to let you know that my knowledge is pretty much limited to that documentary, so you may want to look elsewhere if you are searching for recaps with a whole lot of foresight and hindsight into the booking and direction of the promotion. However, I will be posting the episodes I watch and recap from YouTube, so if you are like me and you want to get into Memphis ‘rasslin, then this just might be the way you will want to begin.

Your hosts are Lance Russell and Dave Brown.
