The current WCW champs were as follows:

Note from 2013: We have come to the fifteenth anniversary of Goldberg’s big WCW world title win over Hollywood Hogan. This was a special night at the time for me as a wrestling fan because I rarely got to stay up for the third hour of Nitro. There was magic in the air, the rumblings of change was there, all the cliches you can think of spouting out. Going into this show though at the time, I did not know Goldberg was getting a title shot until I turned on the program. I was on a road trip with my folks and my brother and had missed the Thunder and any Saturday programming leading up to this show.

Let Us Take You Back to Thunder 7/1/98. JJ Dillon announces that #1 contender Goldberg will indeed face Hollywood Hogan in the Georgia Dome on the following Nitro.

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

The current WCW champs were as follows:

WCW Cruiserweight Champion: Eddie Guerrero (9/14/1997)

We open the show with a horrific view of Ric Flair lying comatose on an operating table with his head stitched up. If you didn’t watch Fall Brawl, you might think he was dead.

HOUR NUMBER ONE! Your hosts are Tony Schiavone, Larry Zbyszko, and Mike Tenay. Realizing all he has done for his career, Tony feels like he can’t do the show tonight and walks off. We see more brutality from Fall Brawl including the nasty bump Chris Benoit takes over the ropes into the Wargames cage as well as Curt Hennig slamming the cage door on Flair’s head. Buy the replay, ya’ll.

This is a hot Charlotte crowd that doesn’t seem to remember their hero has fallen. SHUT UP AND BE DEPRESSED.
