EDITOR NOTE: Sorry for the delay. I know you were all waiting on bated breath for me to finish this recap because it was such a GREAT time in WCW. This was a case where I started the show, got half-way through writing it up, didn’t click the Save button for some reason, and my computer decided to restart for updates in the middle of the night. A busy two weeks past and I’m finally getting this one done. FUN STUFF.

Your hosts are Tony Schiavone, Lee Marshall, and Larry Zbyszko. Bobby Heenan wasn’t part of this episode of Thunder due to the passing of his mother-in-law. To make him not appear human or as a guy with a family, they mention he’s in Auburn Hills gearing up for the PPV. Read the rest of this entry

Before we get started, we see Hollywood Hogan, Eric Bischoff, the Giant, and the Disciple all react to their dressing room being vandalized by the “OWN” or “One Warrior Nation”. When they leave to go to the ring to confront Warrior, Vincent comes up telling them that members of the nWo B&W have been taken out in an ambulance as see an ambulance leave the arena. Hollywood Hogan is having the WORST DAY EVER! The crew now head to the ring looking for the Warrior. Hogan confirms that Brian Adams and Scott Norton were the ones in the ambulance. Hogan randomly brings up Bret Hart and kicks him off the team for Wargames and replaces him with the Giant since Bret dared to put his hands on the “GOD of wrestling”. Back to Warrior, Hogan says Warrior will have to prove himself worthy before Hogan accepts a match with him. Hogan believes the Disciple would die for him and says there’s no way Warrior can get through the Giant. Hogan calls for the Warrior one last time to show himself, but there’s no Warrior.

HOUR NUMBER ONE! Your hosts are Tony Schiavone, Mike Tenay, and Larry Zbyszko. Schiavone reminds us tonight is the kickoff for the FOURTH year of Monday Nitro. Read the rest of this entry
