WCW: Monday Nitro (09.15.97)

WCW Monday Nitro
September 15, 1997
Charlotte, NC
Independence Arena

The current WCW champs were as follows:
WCW World Champion: Hollywood Hogan (8/9/1997)
WCW U.S. Champion: Steve McMichael (8/21/1997)
WCW World Tag Team Champions: The Outsiders (10/27/1996)
WCW World Television Champion: Alex Wright (8/21/1997)
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.

WCW: Monday Nitro (08.18.97)

WCW Monday Nitro
August 18, 1997
Birmingham, AL
BJCC

The current WCW champs were as follows:
WCW World Champion: Hollywood Hogan (8/9/1997)
WCW U.S. Champion: Jeff Jarrett (6/9/1997)
WCW World Tag Team Champions: The Outsiders (10/27/1996)
WCW World Television Champion: Ultimo Dragon (7/22/1997)
WCW Cruiserweight Champion: Chris Jericho (8/16/1997)

We stare right into the nappy head of Raven to start the show. He cuts one of his signature ECW promos about being a tortured young kid growing in the late 1970s while sitting alone in a dark room. Two years later, “Freaks and Geeks” debuted on NBC TV about a bunch of misfit teenagers trying to figure it all out in the late 1970s. COINCIDENCE? Probably. Quoth the Raven, “Nevermore”.

And now, we transition to see those kind of girls who Raven could never get in high school: THE NITRO GIRLS!

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