WCW: Thunder (01.07.99)

WCW: Thunder
January 7, 1999
Richmond, VA
Richmond Coliseum

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: Rick Steiner & Kenny Kaos (10/26/1998)
WCW World Television Champion: Scott Steiner (12/28/1998)
WCW Cruiserweight Champion: Billy Kidman (11/22/1998)

The show starts with a FIVE MINUTE video package of Ric Flair beating the crap out of Eric Bischoff at Starrcade and then Bischoff (and Curt Hennig) cheating to win. The piece continues showing Flair submitting Bischoff the next night on Nitro to become the President of WCW for ninety days. We’re reminded Randy Savage is back (and he’s got a blonde with him!) and how Savage helped Ric Flair win. They show some of the January 4 Nitro where Flair tells Bischoff he’s working for Tony Schiavone over at the announce table. Bischoff did not want to participate. Okay, and now we cut to the Thunder intro.

Your hosts are Tony Schiavone, Mike Tenay, and Bobby Heenan. Crowd still wants “Goldberg”. Tenay was “ill” over what the new World order did to the WCW world title, but it’s Heenan who manages to get over the fact of how terrible it was. They replay the “Finger Poke of DOOM” from Nitro for everyone on TBS to see. Goldberg runs in hoping to salvage the end of the show, but of course he’s destroyed by the new nWo. They even show us what happened after Nitro with members of the Atlanta Falcons standing by Goldberg to challenge the nWo. Naturally, the nWo doesn’t bother. Read the rest of this entry
