Monday Nitro - June 21, 1999

Monday Nitro #193
Date: June 21, 1999
Location: Superdome, New Orleans, Louisiana
Commentators: Tony Schiavone, Bobby Heenan

Reviewed by Tommy Hall

We're in the Silv.....SUPERdome tonight with three weeks before Bash at the Beach. The main story is the old vs. new story kicking off last week with Bagwell pinning Flair in an eight man tag. Other than that it looks like we're looking at Sid vs. Nash for the title at the PPV, which almost has to be better than Nash vs. Savage. Let's get to it.


We open with a recap of last week's show. Haven't I suffered enough?

The Hummer shows up with Savage and entourage inside. Nash's limo pulls up behind it and tries to find out who was driving but the Hummer gets away. So Sid wasn't driving a few weeks ago?

Nitro Girls.

Master P. and some other rappers perform. These guys are so “bout it bout it” that they don't even need microphones near their face to rap. This goes on WAY too long.

The announcers wonder about the Hummer.

Video on the music battle match from the Bash.

Lenny Lane is in the back and wondering what trunks to wear. Lodi comes in to give him a pep talk for his match with Meng later because Lenny can last a long time and has a lot of stamina. Lenny even gets a shoulder rub to warm him up. This is exactly what it sounds like.

DJ Ran.

Kidman vs. Psychosis

We start fast with Psychosis scoring with a shoulder and baseball slide to send Kidman out to the floor. Kidman slingshots back in with an ankle scissors and a great looking dropkick. A clothesline puts Psychosis on the floor for a HUGE dive to put both guys down. Back in with Kidman nailing a slingshot legdrop for two, only to have a superplex attempt countered into a super gordbuster.

They head outside again with Kidman going into the barricade, setting up a split legged moonsault out to the floor for a cool spot. Back in again with Kidman dropkicking the masked one out of the air, only to miss a charge. Psychosis puts him on top for a huge hurricanrana, only to try a powerbomb for some stupid reason. Kidman goes up for the Shooting Star....and Savage and Sid come in for the DQ.

Rating: C. Nice opening match but the Savage Show must continue. Sid at least keeps Savage from needing the girls to do all the work for him to make Savage look a bit tougher. The match itself was entertaining but we're running out of matches to see in the division. I still don't get why Psychosis had to drop the belt back a week after winning the thing. Mysterio has defended it once since winning it nearly two months ago so why give it to him?

Sid cleans house until Sting comes out for the save. Nash follows him out but has a question for Sting: why didn't he attack Savage and Sid? And why did he get out of a black Hummer last week to go after Rick Steiner? Sting denies driving the Hummer a few weeks ago, but Nash says he wasn't accusing him. Nash even calls Sting Franchise Boy. There's a Shane Douglas joke in there somewhere.

Piper and Flair make Savage/Sid vs. Sting/Nash for Bash at the Beach and Sting vs. Sid for tonight.

Clips of Piper and Flair teaming up.

Meng vs. Lenny Lane

The fans shout various homophobic terms at Lane. Lenny's headlock is easily broken up and a headbutt works as well as you would expect. He tries going up top but gets Tongan Death Gripped down to the mat for a fast pin.

Lodi helps Lane to the back.

Nitro Girls.

More on who was driving the Hummer. No one knows if that wasn't clear.

Here are Master P. and the No Limit Soldiers, complete with Brad Armstrong in fatigues. Master P. wants to sing Happy Birthday to his brother and asks a fan to come in to sing the song for him. We get a guy in a big black afro wig to sing Happy Birthday as the fans are just dying. Cue Curt Hennig in a Dallas Stars jersey with a present for P.'s brother. Hennig opens the gift and pulls out a cowboy hat. The brother throws it down and stomps on it, a brawl starts and cake is thrown.

You know, out of all the stupid stuff WCW did over the years, this might be the worst thought out feud ever. To begin with, Master P. allegedly cost hundreds of thousands of dollars per appearance, which usually lasted all of three minutes. Then he and his friends run around shouting HOODY HOO and sounding like a bunch of morons. But remember, they're the good guys in this story.

The bad guys are the ring technicians who wear cowboy hats and gave what appeared to be a nice gift to Master P.'s brother. Keep in mind that WCW has weekly NASCAR updates on Thunder, but we're supposed to boo the cowboys. This feud has been a disaster since the beginning and makes the least sense of anything I've seen in a long time.

Eddie Guerrero vs. Juventud Guerrera

Can we just keep this match on for the next two hours or so? This is Eddie's in ring return after about six months off due to injury. A slap annoys Juvy and Guerrero stomps away to take over. A tilt-a-whirl backbreaker plants Juvy but he comes back with a hurricanrana for two. Eddie takes over again with a belly to back suplex and they head outside. After whipping Juvy into the barricade they head back inside for a sleeper from Eddie as we take a break.

Back with Juvy in an abdominal stretch but crawling over Eddie into a sunset flip for two. Eddie starts going after the legs before nailing a brainbuster for two. We hit the sleeper again until Guerrera counters with a belly to back suplex of his own. Juvy pulls Eddie down by the hair and nails a missile dropkick to send Eddie outside. A big suicide dive drops Guerrero and a springboard spinwheel kick does the same back inside. Eddie easily escapes the Juvy Driver though and grabs a neckbreaker, only to pick Guerrera up and spin him around before dropping him again. The Frog Splash is good for the pin.

Rating: C+. Yep Eddie still has it. He looked as polished as he has in years here and had a good comeback match minus a lot of the character stuff he had going before the injury. Eddie looks like a guy that is ready to step up to the next level, but I can't imagine that's going to happen in this company.

Prince Iaukea vs. The Cat

We get the usual dancing and five seconds thing before Iaukea dropkicks Cat out to the floor. They slug it out on the floor with Iaukea going into the barricade before it heads back inside. Iaukea nails an enziguri and Samoan drop for two, only to have Sonny slip the shoe on Miller's foot. A big kick to the head is enough to end Prince and thankfully get us out of here quickly.

Booker T. vs. Kanyon

Kanyon has a Tag Team Title with him. Booker gets one of the biggest pops I've ever heard him get. At least the fans can recognize talent. We get things going with Mr. T. armdragging him down and scoring with an awesome looking dropkick for two. The big forearm and a clothesline sends Kanyon to the floor and us to a break. Back with Kanyon running from Booker on the floor before coming back in to duck a sidekick and botch what looks like a Gory Stretch with Booker falling off his shoulder.

A neckbreaker and legdrop get two on Booker but he they head outside with Kanyon taking over again. Back in again and a surfboard has Booker in trouble but as usual, the hold doesn't last long. Some suplexes and a slingshot elbow get two for Kanyon. Booker fights up with his usual and hits some kicks, only to have Page and Bigelow come in for the DQ.

Rating: C. Again, good stuff for the most part until someone ran in for the DQ. That being said, Booker fighting off the forces of the Triad could be interesting and could be a boost for him, as long as he doesn't just get back together with Stevie Ray to reform a tag team that stopped meaning anything about two years ago.

Something like a 3D on the title belt leaves Booker laying.

Gene brings out Piper and Flair, with entourage of course, for a chat. Piper uses the usual cheap lines about sports teams and mentions Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Flair says Buff is a beggar and that he was with Bagwell's girlfriend last night. Buff comes out, gets beaten down and the brawl is on. Actually make that a match according to Flair. Good thing he and Piper just happened to be in their wrestling gear.

Buff Bagwell vs. Roddy Piper/Ric Flair

Flair tells Bagwell to make the same sounds his girlfriend made last night. The old guys hammer away on Bagwell and throw him out to the floor, only to have Anderson get nailed in the face. Buff comes back in with a sunset flip for two and nails all three guys. He slaps a Figure Four on Flair but Piper makes a fast save. Some atomic drops have Piper reeling but he comes back with that double ear clap. Piper puts on the sleeper and the crowd just dies. That was almost disturbing.

Bagwell fights up and hits Piper low before slamming Flair off the top. Off to Ric who ducks a dropkick and tries the Figure Four but gets rolled up for two. Piper comes back in as Malenko tries to come in but gets stopped by Mickie Jay. Dean is allowed to be Buff's partner as Bagwell clotheslines Flair down and makes the hot tag to Malenko. Roddy breaks up a quick Cloverleaf attempt so Dean slaps it on Arn instead. The Blockbuster knocks Flair out but Piper hits Buff with brass knuckles and puts Flair on top for the pin.

Rating: D+. Well so much for Buff's momentum. By momentum I mean winning one match after losing every big match he's had for months of course but that's a major push in WCW if you're under 38 years old. Piper continues to drag down any match he's in as his offense would have looked outdated in 1978.

Nitro Girls.

Tag Team Titles: Kanyon/Diamond Dallas Page vs. Konnan/Rey Mysterio Jr.

Why would Kanyon work twice tonight when Bigelow is in their corner? Page takes Mysterio into the corner to start but takes a standing Lionsault and a dropkick to knock him into the ropes. Off to Konnan for the rolling clothesline but he walks into a jawbreaker. Kanyon comes in but walks into a drop toehold, setting up a springboard legdrop from Mysterio. For some reason Rey dives onto Bigelow, earning him a whip into the steps as we take a break.

Back with Mysterio headscissoring Page down, setting up a double tag to Kanyon and Konnan. Everything breaks down with Konnan cleaning house and throwing Mysterio into a Bronco Buster on Page. Kanyon comes back with a legdrop between Konnan's legs as Bigelow gets in as well. Things settle down with Page hooking a front facelock on Konnan. Back to Kanyon who misses a moonsault, allowing for the real hot tag to Mysterio for a springboard seated senton to Page. Rey dives onto Bigelow again but with better results this time. Everything breaks down again but the cowboys come in for the DQ.

Rating: D+. Yet another DQ to mess up what could have been a decent match. Konnan and Mysterio have nice chemistry together and putting them up against three guys at once is a good way to make them look like underdogs. Mysterio diving on Bigelow over and over again made him look stupid though and slowed things down.

Benoit, Saturn and the No Limit Soldiers run in for the save to try and validate the latter's pay.

Sting vs. Sid Vicious

They stand around for a bit before Sting avoids a charge in the corner. Cue Savage and the girls to trip Sting and give Sid early control. Sting makes a quick comeback with a bulldog and kick to the face but Savage offers another distraction to let Sid choke away. Some kicks to Sting's head and ribs have him in trouble but Sid stops to yell at the camera. Another boot misses and Sting hits the Splash, drawing in Savage for the DQ.

Rating: F. This match headlined a show in 1989 and it's headlining another show in 1999. Is that really all WCW can come up with? And a DQ finish to make sure neither guy has to look bad? The fact that it's the fourth DQ on the show doesn't help either, as it makes things all the more frustrating. This was barely a match.

Luger comes in for the save and a long staredown and insults wrap things up. Sting: “WE'VE GOT TWO WORDS FOR YOU!” A crotch chop ends the show. Seriously.

Overall Rating: D. I'm not sure how to describe this show. It was better than the recent weeks due to less stupid stuff going on but the in ring stuff was even more frustrating. Half of the matches ended via DQ, two ended with foreign objects to the head, and one of the clean wins lasted all of ninety seconds. This show has almost completely stopped being about wrestling and is now about every old, over the hill wrestler they can dig up. The old vs. new stuff was still around but it's clear that the story is taking a backseat to the other old guys. Speaking of which, where did Nash disappear to? He was just gone after half an hour.

  8. Wouldn't it be WWE reporting that My Mum sucks? Because she sucks dick? And the WWE are mostly male? So shouldn't it be, "Your mum sucks dick -- WWE"?

    Ha-ha, silly Scott. It's my Mum who is the one sucking! You look so foolish right now for getting that wrong!

  15. The last time my mom watched wrestling:


    -Ric Flair was a legitimate World Title contender, if not champ
    -Sting was the hot prospect
    -Hulkamania was running wild
    -Steve Austin was a young guy learning the ropes in Texas
    -The Rock was still playing football
    -Stephanie McMahon was still a virgin
    -Vince McMahon was (mostly) sane
    -A lot of guys weren't dead


    So I'm confident in saying she honestly does not give a shit about WWE. Or wrestling, period. Now get her started on bingo...

  16. So if you want Hogan to come back, who is she clamouring for? Gorgeous George?

  20. The SUPERDOME???????


    For a NITRO?!?!?!?


    I know WCW announced that 20,000+ were in attendance, but that arena holds far more than that, and how much did it cost to rent out the flipping Superdome for a night? How many papered tickets did they have? And how empty did it look on TV?

    ReplyDelete
  21. "Witty" seems like a stretch.

  22. Nah. Billy Graham. Duh.

    ReplyDelete
  23. The best wrestling story concerning my mom is when I showed her Mabel in 1993, and she implied that maybe he's really not THAT big, and he has a bunch of padding under his clothes... Which i really couldn't deny as he wore a full body suit... Then he came back in 1998 as evil Viscera... still couldn't prove it... Then "The worlds largest love machine"... Same damn thing, pyjamas that covered everything....

    Then came Big Daddy V... Jesus christ, how I wish there would still be doubt about the theory... MY EYES!! MY EYES!!

  35. It's actually depressing now. The shows weren't anything great in New York and they barely sold out any of them, but at least the crowd was into the shows. These Bethlehem taping are just sad. From the little I can manage to watch, nobody is there, nobody is making noise, and the place is as dark as a movie theater.

  42. I don't have the heart to tell my mother or her sisters that most of the Von Erichs are dead.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I checked out the beginning of Bound for Glory, and it was really sad. They panned the crowd, and it looked like the tiny venue local bands (and WWECW) played in my hometown. I know it may be an historic venue, but seeing that little place with empty seats was depressing.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I didn't notice any major areas empty but I can imagine a lot of black curtains were used. I was there with a packed house at Wrestlemania earlier this year and there certainly weren't that many there for this show.

    ReplyDelete
  45. She was probably marked by Bret.


    SNAP! UP HIGH! DON'T LEAVE ME HANGING NOW!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Bound For Glory's production values looked awful from the few clips I've seen: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XiiJXqqSZk8


    That was supposed to be a big gamechanger for TNA, and it ended up being a crappy-looking show with only a dozen TNA wrestlers where nothing of consequence happened.

    My mom always liked the Ultimate Warrior. She sent me a txt telling me that she was sorry he died. I thought it was a misunderstanding on her part since he had just gotten into the HOF and been on Raw. Then I went onto the blog...that was a strange week to be a wrestling fan wasn't it?

    ReplyDelete
  48. My mom said that! Really?


    Well then I'll have to subject to episodes of TNA Impact until she changes her mind!

    ReplyDelete
  49. And to think, I thought that WrestleMania 30 was the biggest wrestling show in Superdome history.
    I was right.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I found that so ironic: they loaded up all the Impacts before that show and didn't even promote it. Exactly what they did forever, and exactly what killed their PPV business.

    ReplyDelete
  51. My mom is saddened that I love wrestling so much.

    ReplyDelete
  52. ... that won't help. She'll just hate ALL wrestling afterwards.

    ReplyDelete
  53. You should marry it and teach your mom about prejudice.

    ReplyDelete
  54. She'll hate the world if she has to watch Impact.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I told my mom back in August that for my birthday, instead of everyone getting me something small, everyone just chip in 20-30 bucks and get me a pair of tickets to Survivor Series, since my girlfriend already got me tickets for Raw the next night, I figured I'd go for broke and make it a WWE road trip as I'm taking the whole week of Thanksgiving off and I live about halfway between STL and Indy.
    She was all like, "You know that it's Survivor Series, so it's gonna be a wack-ass card and Lesnar's probably not even gonna be there, so it'll be some lame Authority v. Cena's rando squad team match as the main event."


    This may or may not have happened, but the point is, my family didn't get me Survivor Series tickets. And I'm glad I'm going to just Raw instead of seeing this wack-ass card with no Lesnar and some lame Authority v. Cena's rando squad team match as the main event.

  63. I wouldn't come see my son job to IRS either. You'd probably tap in the abdominal stretch.

  64. Speaking of terrible TNA ideas, why do they always overbook the arena size for Bound For Glory. Take a look:

    2007: 4,000 (Gwinnett Center holds 13,100 for concerts)
    2008: 5,000 (Sears Center holds 11,800 for concerts)
    2009: 2,400 (Bren Events Center holds 5,430 for concerts)
    2010: 3,500 (Ocean Center holds 9,312)
    2011: 3,585 (Liacouras Center holds 10,206)
    2012: 2,900 (GCU Arena holds 7,000)
    2013: 3,000 (Viejas Arena holds 12,845 for center stage concerts)
    2014: 1,500 (Korakuen Hall holds 2,005)

    We can assume those attendance numbers are inflated, but even on the reported figures only in 2009 and 2014 did TNA even come close to half-filling the venue. You'd think they would've figured it out by the second year they were going too large.

  73. Speaking of moms... Question of the day:

    Let's say you mom revealed that she was a ring rat about the time you were conceived and there is a strong possibility that a wrestler from that era is your real father.

Just stay with a roster of 20 or so "GFW Guys" then bring in 10-15 guys from ROH, NJPW, AAA, or whatever other promotions they are dealing with at the time and have those 30 or so total do a months worth of tapings for TV or a monthly PPV. GFW smells like an old school NWA and I'm loving the scent.

  102. That looks nothing like old school NWA.

  103. Lithen daddy, I juth can't WAIT for Illini bathketball, they gon' git funky like a monkey in the Big Ten! Now are the football playath in the Leedas or the Legends, daddy?

    ReplyDelete
  104. Dealing with local territories and having a decent sized full-time roster would be a modern day NWA.


    Think of ROH, AAA, NJPW, and the other contracted promotions as "territories" albeit most of them more profitable than GFW will be in the beginning.

  105. I'd upvote this if I could.

    ReplyDelete
  106. Don't worry. Jarrett will still be booking himself as the top star.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Circa 1980... uh, Dick the Bruiser.

  108. I thought you meant stylistically. Okay, I see what you're saying.

    ReplyDelete
  109. I'm looking more forward to GFW next year than TNA.

  110. Jarrett: Karen, you know I put business first no matter what. And I'm not going to lie, we have a lot of household names and great wrestlers on our roster. But honestly, they just aren't as talented nor well-known than I am. I gotta put the title on me for at least the first 6 months.

    ReplyDelete
  111. I said this same thing about 2 months ago. TNA still puts out a good weekly show, but taping 8 weeks in advance and no PPV's isn't exactly something I can get excited about.

    ReplyDelete
  112. It has potential, I won't lie. But you just know Vince Russo will be the head booker.

    ReplyDelete
  113. Just hire a bunch of retired wrestlers and Jim Ross to do the booking.

    ReplyDelete
  114. Will there be clubberin during this basketball game?

    ReplyDelete
  115. Yeah Jarrett knows what to say to get us excited, but the guy just strikes me as stubborn and I doubt has bothered to learn all the mistakes he made with TNA.

    ReplyDelete
  116. Nah, more like during...nothing gets ol' Bob revved up than some American presidential history.

    ReplyDelete
  117. I honestly do not remember if Illinois was in the Leaders or Legends division when those awful division names existed.
    But this was spectacular.

    Bret Hart had a mistress in Newark.


    I live near Newark.


    ...hmm.

  123. He had mistresses everywhere. If you ever notice your mom having tears in her eyes for no reason then start to ask questions.

    It was probably the only arena they could get. They couldn't have it at most high school gyms or they would look more bush league than they already do.

  126. So... last member of Team Cena and Team Authority?

    ReplyDelete
  127. I just watched CM Punk vs. Rey Mysterio's Over the Limit 2010 match, and it was awesome. Mysterio was taken some sick bumps, Punk's facial expressions were awesome and so was his vicious in-ring style. They had great chemistry too and were about three steps ahead of the audience. Fuck Mysterio haters.

  128. Not sure my mom is qualified to give an opinion on the WWE but I agree with her conclusion.

    ReplyDelete
  129. I love Rey. He gets abused by the internet for no reason. Even at his worst, he is a guaranteed *** or so match.

  132. That's how I feel about a lot of 90s pop culture. I think that's normal.

  133. Rey prior to 2011 was still quite awesome.

    Was that roided up Rey?

    ReplyDelete
  135. Ah, your mom.

    I fucked her.

    ReplyDelete
  136. How can anyone say his matches were all the same?

    ReplyDelete
  137. He became really roided in 2011 and then basically broke down to the point that he couldn't wrestle.

    ReplyDelete
  138. But but but boo hoo hoo the 619 isn't as realistic as standing in one spot and letting Ricky Steamboat chop your chest!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  139. They don't understand wrestling matches and what happens in them.

    ReplyDelete
  140. I don't even mind the 619 at all, plus there were so many neat and creative ways he did it and counters of it.

  144. Absolutely. He came up with plenty of spots to get a guy on the ropes in a wrestling plausible way. Plus if you think about what the move really is its awesome.

  148. This reminds me of the time I had a dream where I worked for Vince McMahon, and over dinner one night with him, HHH, and the rest of the family he said, "Hey, I think I can finally tell you...I'm your real father!!" and we hugged.


    Now, I love my dad and everything but I *was* a bit bummed out when I woke up...

    I heard that after Vince McMahon saw your mom naked he used that as inspiration for the furry Giant Gonzalez suit.

  150. Do you know what is funny? Jim Cornette blames Russo for never being wrong, but Cornette does the same exact thing.

    ReplyDelete
  151. I've never told my mom I watch wrestling, much less that its my favorite sport pretty much. She'd be HORRIFIED!

  157. I think the "Franchise Boy" was meant to be a Shane Douglas allusion, because for whatever reason, WCW was kinda working the smarks around this time to make them think Shane Douglas drove the hummer. I remember Tony speculating about it and saying, "That's the thing about it, we don't know who's driving it! It could be someone who's not even in WCW! Or it could be someone who used to be in WCW but hasn't been for a while!"

    ReplyDelete
  158. He's pretty awful nowadays; especially since he hadn't had success in a long time.

    ReplyDelete
  159. I was so excited when ROH gave Cornette the book. I thought the company would turn it around. It ended up being their worst run ever, yes worst than 2002.

  160. They were like the biggest celebrities in New Orleans at the time though. I know because I went to Tulane two months after this and their popularity there was... well, about as absurd as their place in wrestling.

  163. I love Cornette, but I've had to stop listening to his podcast for this same reason (along with being sick of his rants on Christians and Republicans...enough already). I've never heard him admit to being wrong about anything, but he crushes Russo for it.

    ReplyDelete
  164. ... this would have been BEFORE Savage, even. Unless there's another, sicker rumor...?

    ReplyDelete
  165. I think his biggest sin is Gigolo Jimmy Del Ray.

    ReplyDelete
  166. I get that, but you don't typically see bands booking a venue that they can't mostly fill. It's, embarrassing, a waste of money and kills morale.

    It's like when TNA booked the Alamodome for Lockdown 2013. Sure, they drew 7,200... but in a venue that holds 70,000. You're telling me they couldn't find a 5-10k seat arena anywhere else in Texas?

    ReplyDelete
  167. Yo momma is so ugly she had to get you drunk as a baby just so she could breast feed

  168. Uh oh, I fear in the live thread were going to get 100 Jobber posts lamenting the detractors of Rey.

  169. If you want me as your white knight be my favorite wrestler for years and THEN add my area code to your theme song!

  170. IT's the same thing with any wrestler they don't like. "Blandy Boreton" has had some great matches throughout the year but "they're all the same." Punk, on the other hand, might have followed the same routine for his matches but they're epic.
