WCW: Monday Nitro (01.18.99)

WCW: Monday Nitro
January 18, 1999
Columbus, OH
Schottenstein Center

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)

We begin Nitro with EXCITING STILL SHOTS of the WCW Souled Out PPV – more specifically of the Ric and David Flair versus Barry Windham and Curt Hennig match. I don’t think Tony actually mentions that the Flairs won the match (just that Arn Anderson helped out the Horsemen) because he immediately pivots to talk about the nWo Wolfpac’s appearance – beating up young David while his father was handcuffed to the middle rope and forced to helplessly watch it all go down.

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

WCW: Monday Nitro (01.04.99)

WCW: Monday Nitro
January 4, 1999
Atlanta, GA
Georgia Dome

The current WCW champs are as follows:
WCW World Champion: Kevin Nash (12/27/1998)
WCW U.S. Champion: Bret Hart (11/30/1998)
WCW World Tag Team Champions: Rick Steiner & Kenny Kaos (10/26/1998)
WCW World Television Champion: Scott Steiner (12/28/1998)
WCW Cruiserweight Champion: Billy Kidman (11/22/1998)

Oh boy, I’ve been dreading this one. Remember – this card is supposed to have the Kevin Nash versus Goldberg rematch.

We get a video package that makes you feel pretty bleak about the future as they show us what happened in the Goldberg and Kevin Nash match from Starrcade with Nash’s hand held high and WCW world title over his shoulder in the end.

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

WCW: Monday Nitro (12.28.98)

WCW World Tag Team Champions: Rick Steiner & Kenny Kaos (10/26/1998)
WCW World Television Champion: Konnan (11/30/1998)
WCW Cruiserweight Champion: Billy Kidman (11/22/1998)

LAST NIGHT AFTER STARRCADE: They show footage of Eric Bischoff, Buff Bagwell, Scott Steiner, and the returning Curt Hennig mocking Ric Flair during a limo ride. Bischoff makes sure to add in at the last moment that “Hollywood [Hogan] would be proud”.

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

WCW: Monday Nitro (12.21.98)

WCW: Monday Nitro
December 21, 1998
St. Louis, MO
TWA Dome

The current WCW champs are as follows:
WCW World Champion: Bill Goldberg (7/6/1998)
WCW U.S. Champion: Bret Hart (11/30/1998)
WCW World Tag Team Champions: Rick Steiner & Kenny Kaos (10/26/1998)
WCW World Television Champion: Konnan (11/30/1998)
WCW Cruiserweight Champion: Billy Kidman (11/22/1998)

We start with a way too lengthy Eric Bischoff character piece. They go back to the start of the nWo angle and show bits and pieces of seemingly every heel thing he’s done. Of course this is to promote his match with Ric Flair, but there’s only about 20 seconds of his involvement with Flair shown. Maybe they will show a video package on Ric Flair later in the show?

NITRO GIRLS!

HOUR NUMBER ONE! Your hosts are Tony Schiavone, Mike Tenay, and Larry Zbyszko. Tony announces that Scott Hall will face GOLDBERG in tonight’s main event. Read the rest of this entry

WCW Cruiserweight Champion: Billy Kidman (11/22/1998)

HOUR NUMBER ONE! Your hosts are Tony Schiavone, Mike Tenay, and Larry Zbyszko. Tony says this has already been a “draining day”. The WCW championship committee met today and Mike Tenay reports that Goldberg cannot defend the WCW world title between now and Starrcade when he meets Kevin Nash. Goldberg has demanded a battle with Bam Bam Bigelow, but it will be a non-title bout – for TONIGHT. Tony and Larry are PUMPED. By the way, there’s announced 31,110 people in the Astrodome tonight. Remember that for later. Read the rest of this entry
