WCW Saturday Night: November 9, 1996

Did you have any idea that Roddy Piper showed up at Halloween Havoc to confront Hollywood Hogan? WCW’s lack of coverage to this point is embarrassing, as this is clearly the biggest story of the millennia. So, for you Joe Curious, here’s a clip that hasn’t aired on any WCW programming to this point. Especially not the last two episodes of Nitro and last week’s Saturday Night (and tomorrow’s Worldwide).

TONY SCHIAVONE will never forget Hogan’s face at Halloween Havoc when Piper showed up. Neither will I, because they’re going to play it on every show from now until 2085. DUSTY RHODES can’t believe they met face to face, and promises to talk a lot more about this.


JUVENTUD GUERRERA and PSYCHOSIS vs. THE AMERICAN MALES

There is nothing that sucks the hope out of a potentially fantastic match than to hear the quiet build to the American Males theme. Bagwell claps, Riggs claps, everyone’s got the clap! No mention of the problems from Monday, and Bagwell’s super babyface tonight by leading a You Ess Eh chant against these awful foreigners who … well, haven’t actually done anything to anyone. Juvi hits Bagwell with a spin kick, and delivers the chops. Bagwell responds with a powerbomb, because he’s kind of a jerk. Riggs enters and misses a blind charge, allowing Psychosis to tag in and immediately take a dropkick. Juvi tries to get involved, but Bagwell dropkicks him, and they clothesline both guys to the floor. AND WE CLAP. Juvi re-enters with a springboard missile dropkick, and the sheep in attendance boo. Juvi Driver is on point, but instead of a pin he hits a People’s Elbow. Not sure I understand your logic there, Juvi. Spin kick in the corner sets up a springboard guillotine – but Bagwell moves and Juvi destroys his tailbone. Bagwell tags out, and Riggs has clotheslines for everyone. Riggs bounces into the ropes and knocks Bagwell to the floor by mistake, and Psychosis launches himself with a flying body attack! Juvi’s right behind with a slingshot 360 guillotine, and Team Mexico wins at 4:39!!! That was my shock of the day, and I could not be happier. ** Bagwell gets a little mad, but offers his hands for a high 10 to ensure they’re cool, and they are. Jian Ghomeshi recommends a little bit of hate fucking to clear those problems right up.

JIM DUGGAN vs. STEVEN REGAL (for the WCW world television title)

NICK PATRICK is assigned here, which probably bodes well for his lordship. You may recall the Outsiders were instrumental in Regal claiming the TV title; but he doesn’t appear to be associated with the nWo. Nick Patrick finds a roll of tape in Duggan’s pants, and discards of it rightly. Duggan stomps around like a retarded robot, and Regal hits the floor with bugged out eyes trying to comprehend what’s happening. Once he figures it’s safe, he re-enters and hits Duggan with a European uppercut. Duggan responds with a half dozen clotheslines, and Regal hits the floor in the worst pain he’s ever suffered based on his face. Back in, Patrick gets between them to give Regal a chance, and as he moves Regal claws the eyes. More European uppercuts send Duggan stomping around again. He throws some rock hard punches, but Regal pokes the eyes and Duggan is blinded. Unable to see, he wanders around like Moses in the desert, and since Regal is God, he parts Duggan’s eyes with a knee lift. Duggan refuses to get his head slammed to the buckle (literally screaming “NOOOOOOO!”), and slams Regal instead. Regal responds with a back elbow, but misses a senton. Duggan tapes up his fist, and Patrick sees it immediately throwing it out at 4:05. Regal is decked regardless, but still the champion! Duggan points his board at Patrick’s head, but he scoots away to the floor where Regal gently ensures he’s alright, like the gentleman that he is. *1/2

TONY SCHIAVONE checks in with Duggan, and immediately makes me long for the still missing Mean Gene. Apparently he’s sick to his stomach about Nick Patrick (Duggan, not Gene). He says the only flag he salutes is the red white and blue, and not Nick Patrick. What the hell is he talking about? He throws out a message to his good friend Terry Hogan (who?), and orders him to shoot straight with him going forward, or he’ll beat him up. I don’t find it fair that he’s able to utter these threats without letting this alleged Terry Hogan reply.

DIAMOND DALLAS PAGE vs. ICE TRAIN (with Teddy Long)

This is a rematch from Nitro, right down to the referee, NICK PATRICK. Train had Page beat on Monday until an untimely shoulder injury stopped Patrick’s ability to count, and the Outsiders sealed the win with an assist for Page. Dusty actually brings up Page’s past history with Hall and Nash, which I believe is the first time WCW has brought this up. Train hits the Train Wreck almost right away, but Page actually kicks out on a fair 2 count. Page comes back with a boot to the face, and a clothesline to take Train down. The pancake gets 2, and Train accidentally hits Patrick’s shoulder on his kickout. Patrick doesn’t sell it, but he could just be putting on a tough face for all of us; let’s keep our eyes on this. A headlock is worked, but Train has no neck so I don’t really see the point. A swinging neckbreaker gives Page time to head to the top, but Train crotches him HARD. Those plums done turned purple on that one. Train pulls Page off the top by the hair, and faceplants him. 10 head shots to the buckle set up a powerslam, but Patrick’s way out of position so it takes an extra second to count, exactly what Page needs to kick out. Page digs in his tights for something, and Long starts freaking the hell out! Patrick goes over to find out what Long’s problem is, as he’s hollering and pointing at Page. Of course, DDP levels Train with no problems, and by the time Patrick checks, Page is already on top for the easy win at 5:08. *1/2 Dusty speculates there’s “some cahootin’ goin’ on”. Long loses his mind on Patrick, but Nick tells him if he’d stayed in his damn corner maybe he’d have seen it. “YOU WASN’T LOOKIN’!” Long tells Patrick he’s no longer the man he used to know, as Gotye songs start going off in my head.

THE AMAZING FRENCH CANADIANS vs. HARLEM HEAT (with Sista Sherri)

The Canadians demand the anthem be played, but they’re greeted with Harlem Heat’s music instead. No matter, they sing the National Anthem anyway, though I WISH they’d tried to keep it on beat with the music because that would have been amazing. No Colonel Parker, because slavery ended 100 years ago. A donnybrook erupts immediately, with everyone trading punches! There’s some feelings here, not seen since the best of 401 series between Harlem Heat and Rough & Ready. Stevie Ray drops an elbow on Ouellette, which is unfortunate because that means he’s run through his whole moveset already. Booker hits the flying jalapeno, but isn’t able to follow up because Rougeau pulls him to the floor. The Frenchmen work over Booker in the corner, and Ouellette builds up some steam with a quadrouple rope bounce before hammering Booker with a clothesline. Rougeau works a camel clutch, and by god, COLONEL ROBERT PARKER shows up! Ouellette misses the assisted senton as Parker goes to talk to Sherri, and he’s a world of emotion, not even stopping to mop his brow. Parker jumps on the apron to cheer his boys on, but Sherri decks him! Parker threatens to knock her back to the 1800’s, but Harlem Heat dives to the floor to whoop the massa. That gets them counted out at 3:01, but it doesn’t matter. Stevie says the Colonel has a major malfunction threatening to hit a woman. Tune in next week for their public hanging. *

HUGH MORRUS vs. CHRIS BENOIT (with Woman)

Benoit’s shoulder is still taped, and NICK PATRICK’s neck is still in a brace. Morrus comes out clubberin’, and Dusty doesn’t even call it! Woman’s powers of distraction are truly amazing. An avalanche has Benoit gasping for air, but Morrus spends too long posing and gets dropkicked in the knee. He goes right for it, working it over in the ropes. A dragon screw has Morrus limping around, and Benoit keeps kicking away at the knee. Unfortunately, he gets too close, and eats a shoulderbreaker. A clothesline sends Morrus up top, but Patrick’s standing in the way checking Benoit. Morrus drops down to scream at him to move, letting Woman rake the eyes! Belly to belly overhead with a bridge scores the win at 3:35. **

MAXX and BIG BUBBER attack post-match, and with Morrus behind him, Benoit’s outnumbered. He does a good job fending them off, until Bubba catches him and slams him spine first over the guardrail! Jeezus man! KEVIN SULLIVAN and JIMMY HART hit the scene, and Sullivan kicks him in the ribs repeatedly. Bubba gives Benoit two more Rock Bottom’s directly on top of the guardrail! The fans start reaching over to try and pull Benoit to safety, but he’s property of the DoD now, and they’re feasting like dogs. Great segment, and Benoit’s a sick man taking those bumps.

TONY SCHIAVONE demands to know what the heck was up with that? Jimmy says that a 20 second phone call from Nancy started this, and it’s proof that nobody should ever trust a woman. Sullivan demands to know where Benoit’s cavalry is. Sullivan says he’s not soft, and he can’t wait to feed it to Benoit again in Baltimore.

Elsewhere, MIKE TENAY wants JEFF JARRETT’s thoughts on the lack of a leader in WCW. Jarrett says he’s ready to lead the Four Horsemen, and he’s going to prove it at World War 3. Jarrett reminds everyone the Giant hasn’t chokeslammed him yet, and he won’t.

REY MYSTERIO JR. vs. DEAN MALENKO (for the WCW world cruiserweight title)

This is a hell of a match to be giving away on this show, but I ain’t complaining. Winner gets Psychosis at World War 3. Rey starts in with dropkicks immediately, and packages Malenko for 2. Before we can get too involved, we turn things over to …

Words from PSYCHOSIS! Hell yes! He bangs out about the 3 English words he knows, “you and me, Cruiserweight title” before reverting to Spanish. I like to think it was planned that way, but I used to co-ordinate interviews for my company, and I’ve seen on more than one occasion candidates pretending to be bilingual and giving me answers in much the same vein as Psychosis just did. Though to be fair, Psychosis’ English was better than theirs often was.

Back in the ring, Malenko’s regained control and is flattening Rey with the double leg slam. A delayed brainbuster gets 2. To the mat we go, where Malenko locks on a grounded version of the abdominal stretch. He releases, and hits a backbreaker for 2. Rey gets kicked to the floor, which is probably the best place for him because Dean isn’t hitting him out there. Rey scoots back in, taking a fireman’s carry into a gutbuster smoothly. Deano goes for the electric chair, but that’s about the worst position to put Rey in, because he rolls forward and takes them both to the floor. Malenko rolls Rey back in first, which is once again a mistake, because Rey dropkicks him off the apron as he’s coming in, before flattening him with tope suicida!! Back in, Rey hits a springboard sunset flip for 2. Malenko is angry, and hits a tigerbomb for 2. Rey delivers a back elbow, and pops up to the top with a sky twisting bodyblock for 2. He tries to finish with the West Coast Pop, but Dean hooks the shoulders and backslides Rey for the pin at 5:31. While I could bear to let these guys chill out without a rematch for awhile, they have great chemistry and this was no exception. ***1/2

TONY SCHIAVONE wants to interview the champ about his upcoming match with Psychosis. Malenko tells Psychosis he’s giving him an opportunity to prove himself to Mexico, but not to kid himself, he’ll still be champion. Let’s take the microphone away from Malenko in the future.

Meanwhile, on nWo Saturday Night, we continue the Cruiserweight tournament…

THE BOUNTY HUNTER
Height: 6’5”
Weight: A lean 325 lbs.
Reach: 35”
Fist: 16”
Hometown: Oakland, CA
Pro Record: 52-12
Voted Most Likely to Offend
Way Big for a Cruiserweight

KEVIN NASH welcomes us to a sold out arena (surrounded by completely empty seats). TED DIBIASE is your ring announcer, DOCTOR X is the referee, and SCOTT HALL joins Nash on commentary.

THE BOUNTY HUNTER vs. SYXX (in a Cruiserweight tournament match)

Nash figures Bounty Hunter hasn’t showered in 10-15 days to get that level of buildup in his hair. Regarding the Bounty Hunter, Nash sums it up with: “This man looks horrible!” The Outsiders move to golf-style commentary, with whispering. Bounty Hunter shoves Syxx knocking off his bandana, which is a big mistake. Hunter pounds Syxx in the corner, but misses an avalanche and Syxx kicks him a dozen times. 3 straight spin kicks drops him in the corner, and then chokes him in the ropes in front of the announce team, who take turns slapping him. Hall: “Don’t you run your mouth to me Bounty Hunter, or I’ll put you in the tag-team tournament!” Nash: “I have two words for you: eat salad!” Syxx hits an early version of the Bronco buster, with just one big penis thrust – still not perfected! Syxx drops the straps, as Nash declares him the house of proverbial fire! Spinning heel kick scores the pin.

The Outsiders want a word with the victor, but mostly so Nash can throw a parting shot at the Bounty Hunter. Syxx thought he was in trouble when his bandana got knocked off, but he’s a swinger baby, and you don’t mess with a swinger. Does Chyna know?

MAXX vs. LEX LUGER

We actually saw this match once before on the May 27 edition of Nitro, but it may have been overshadowed by something else. You know, if I’m Maxx, I’m a little bothered the Dungeon can’t be bothered to send me back up. Hart is always ringside for the Faces of Fear. Braun the Leprechaun frequently tries to eat referees anytime Kevin Sullivan is present. But Maxx? Always the bridesmaid. Lex tries a shoulderblock to no avail, but after picking up a little steam on the second go, it works. And so we ROAR! A pair of slams set up some sort of leaping something, but Maxx lifts his knees, and Luger’s hurt. Oh no! Will he be able to come back and win? Could this be the era of Maxx? Maxx stomps Lex by the ropes, and delivers a powerslam for 2. He was 1 second away from main eventing Starrcade, don’t kid yourself. Maxx argues with the referee, giving Luger a chance to small package him for 2. A clothesline sets up the inevitable Rack, and Maxx taps at 3:07. 1/2*

We close by re-airing the entire Hogan interview from Nitro, but you and I already saw this, so no need to talk about it.


Tony believes, deep in his heart of hearts, that Hogan wants no part of Roddy Piper. This Tony Schiavone is something of a visionary, I think he might be on to something. And they sign us off, telling us to remember to check out Nitro.

  22. Last night, I went to a wedding for a female friend of mine. I have known both of them for years because we are in the same social group. It had a weird vibe the entire night. No bouquet/garter toss. The groom does not have that many family or friends so he basically only had 1.5 tables but the bride had about 8. Almost everyone in the social group came to see her get married and not the groom. During the money dance, she had a long line; he had only 4 people. Very few people on the dance floor. Everyone started leaving about 9:00 and it ended about 10.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Yikes...sounds like snoozeville.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  82. Where do they make money? They signed so many former wrestlers, they ran a lot of shows in universal, they papered tons of events, they lost tons taking impact on the road, their PPV business was dreadful. Did their Spike deal overcome that? I don't think so.

    I wouldn't mind just throwing my new Seinfeld DVDs in the bedroom player and watch those while reading some comics. I'm wiped for some reason.

  110. Good god, it's been like six weeks now. Can we stop with the everyone thought the Patriots were dead narrative already?

  111. TNA... not gonna die?


    Sigh, there goes a fair chunk of GWF's potential roster. And the crap will continue.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Thank you for this link from over a year and a half ago.

  114. I did laundry this morning but it's been football all day long. I'm burned out which is weird coming from me.

    ReplyDelete
  115. I'm applying for a job and they ask me to list ten reasons why I would be a great person for the job.


    Can't I just write my usual cover letter? Fuck.

    ReplyDelete
  116. TNA re-upped with Spike? I thought the most recent rumors were Destination America?

    ReplyDelete
  117. Sheesh man. Refs didn't even make a difference!

    ReplyDelete
  118. #1 - Buttafuoco, Buttafuoco, Buttafuoco!

    ReplyDelete
  119. So their situation has improved in the last year?

    ReplyDelete
  120. Yeah, applying and taking interviews for a job is such a pain in the ass that I never enjoy.

    ReplyDelete
  121. Yes destination america. Reuped for tv

    ReplyDelete
  122. Agree with art on this one. That match bored me to no end. The rules hurt them and they did what they could with it. Pretty much all escape rules in the blue cage stink.

    ReplyDelete
  123. Kids dad actually recused himself and we just used one ref.

    ReplyDelete
  124. I'm not saying it has. I'm just not saying it hasn't either. They've cut a TON of money from contracts off the books and removed a ton of expenses.

    ReplyDelete
  125. They're private. Anyone who reports is purely speculating. No way to know for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  126. Works for me. I read they might be getting additional content as well.

    ReplyDelete
  127. As a guy who does hiring now... sometimes I make people jump through hoops to see if they really want the job. I don't want anyone working for me that doesn't want to be there at 100% every day.

    ReplyDelete
  128. Reason number 10: I want this job enough to come up with 9 other reasons for your stupid fucking list

    ReplyDelete
  129. Sounds like they've got it all turned around. Let's hope they don't blow it.

    ReplyDelete
  130. They want you to do that in writing? That's a bit awkward.

    ReplyDelete
  131. [RAMS PARK, EARTH CITY MO]

    Les Snead: THREE FIRST ROUND PICKS!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  132. They don't sell tickets.

    ReplyDelete
  133. Yeah, it's basically a replacement for the cover letter.

    ReplyDelete
  134. Jesus fucking christ start the fucking game already.

    ReplyDelete
  135. You must be doing Survivor Series '96?

    ReplyDelete
  136. If it's a job you don't really care about getting then tell them to ask 10 female members of their family.

    ReplyDelete
  137. That's pretty gay. I'd have moved on to another application over that shit.

    ReplyDelete
  138. It's a good way to ensure they get original stuff and not generic covers, I guess.

    ReplyDelete
  139. Extant1979 - Mr. Cable AccessNovember 16, 2014 at 6:30 PM

    I hate reading cover letters when I'm hiring, almost as much as I hate writing them when I'm applying for jobs.

    ReplyDelete
  140. I think I'm gonna watch WWE Armageddon 2008. And the game.

    ReplyDelete
  141. I've seen the people they hire at this place. It's a certified Apple retailer in the city, and they've hired some dumb fucks that prevented my MacBook from getting properly repaired for OVER A YEAR.

    ReplyDelete
  142. Yup. This UT - Mankind snoozefest is the perfect time to go grab a bite.

    ReplyDelete
  143. Tom Brady has 2 bad games and they are acting like he is about to retire.

    ReplyDelete
  144. I'm curious if it would be better for TNA/ROH/Jarrett's company to try to get on netflix, youtube, and/or hulu instead of some shitty cable channel.

    ReplyDelete
  145. I might spend 5 seconds tops on a cover letter on the first read through... and about 30 seconds on a resume. From there they either go in the garbage or on my desk, and I'll give them a second look. The I only call my top 10% for an interview.

    ReplyDelete
  146. Wonder if someone keeps stats on winning percentage of teams that defer and kick away vs teams that just lose the toss and kick off

    ReplyDelete
  147. I will say I hope Jim Ross is very involved in getting this promotion off the ground.

    ReplyDelete
  148. Haha I wish. I'm trying to get out of my current job and this job is in a better location, plus better pay and better hours.

    ReplyDelete
  149. Since someone mentioned Dan Kroffat, here's him defending the AJPW Jr. Heayweight title against RVD.

  152. well, good luck. I been with my company for 8 years partly b/c I don't want to go through the interview process anymore. Keep us posted.

    ReplyDelete
  153. What advice do you have for any person seeking a job nowadays? As a teacher, I want to spread this knowledge to my students.

    ReplyDelete
  154. Evidently Marc Mero is coming to C Town for surgery.

    ReplyDelete
  155. Wonder what kind of heart surgery he is having...

    ReplyDelete
  156. I had a former colleague approach me about coming to work for him. It was basically a done deal, but I had to do the HR thing as a formality.


    Even though I had emailed copies to my friend (the hiring manager), and to an HR drone directly, they made me cut and paste my resume into a web form instead of just uploading my pdf.


    In the end we couldn't come to terms on a salary and the whole thing falls apart. Then a couple of weeks later he comes back saying that he'd found me another position that would meet my asking salary, and puts me in touch with THAT manager who I also emailed my resume, and then emailed it again to the HR drone that SHE cc'ed. I then had a phone call from her asking me to go to their website and cut and paste my resume on there before we proceeded.


    The long and the short is that applying for jobs sucks, and HR people make things needlessly complicated just to justify their existence.

  157. The same doc did Jeff Green of the Celtics heart surgery.

  158. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©November 16, 2014 at 6:37 PM

    A valve transplant.

    ReplyDelete
  159. What did he say?

    ReplyDelete
  160. Something we are good at!

    ReplyDelete
  161. To be fair, you have a position basically handed to you and you're complaining about having to do a little extra work.

    ReplyDelete
  162. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©November 16, 2014 at 6:38 PM

    Gonna get his ribs cut open because of this.

    ReplyDelete
  163. I'm really torn on Mero's place in wrestling history.

    ReplyDelete
  164. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©November 16, 2014 at 6:38 PM

    I am a product of 2 successful heart surgeries from Rainbow!

    ReplyDelete
  165. I wonder if his condition is similar to mine.

    ReplyDelete
  166. I think Belichick is more interested in proving how smart he is than winning games. It's sits around and says watch me turn this nobody into a player instead of saying let's find players that will help win a title.

    ReplyDelete
  167. Seems like Jeff got good results from it.

    ReplyDelete
  168. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©November 16, 2014 at 6:39 PM

    Or even mine.

    ReplyDelete
  169. I thought he was awful to start out, got good at the end of his time in WCW and stayed good til he got hurt.

    ReplyDelete
  170. It's like he talks too long at the podium. He's what happens when you let someone talk without cutting them off and he just rambles and digs himself deeper and deeper graves.

    ReplyDelete
  171. I think he maxed out his talent. Injuries derailed him a bit but he wasn't going any higher on the card.

    ReplyDelete
  172. No prob. Alarming statistics.

    ReplyDelete
  173. I guess that's true. Still a pain in the ass though.


    But the second one was just an in, not a sure thing. I'm sure that she had the position out to headhunters.

    ReplyDelete
  174. Then he kind of pissed all over it doing all those TV shows burying pro wrestling while caked in makeup.

    ReplyDelete
  175. I think they did this year. More than usual anyways.

    ReplyDelete
  176. to summarize he said that he doesn't suck, it's the other 10 guys that sucks.

    ReplyDelete
  177. He found God and speaking poorly on wrestling wasn't very Christian of him. I remember seeing him after the Benoit tragedies and being shocked because I hadn't seem him since he left the WWF.

    ReplyDelete
  178. He's obsessed with convincing people that he's not a bust that he has to bury other guys to make himself look good.

    ReplyDelete
  179. I'm just saying, how much effort does it really take to copy and paste your resume on their website. Like 10 seconds' work?

    ReplyDelete
  180. Make sure you answer every question in a job interview with a couple real life examples. If you can't draw from experience, I know you're not much of a thinker or problem solver. Those two skills will get you more than most.

    ReplyDelete
  181. It's unnecessary. It's just hoop jumping for the sake of itself.

    ReplyDelete
  182. Bud Select 55... light on calories... big on farts.

    ReplyDelete
  183. He was nothing without the Wildman gimmick and that shit could only get him so far.

    When he first came into the WWE, I fully expected him to be capable of having a pretty decent run with the IC title though.

    ReplyDelete
  184. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©November 16, 2014 at 6:44 PM

    Hey WWF1987, you see the new Botchomania?

    ReplyDelete
  185. biggest question i hate in interviews: what's your biggest strength/weakness?

    ReplyDelete
  186. Extant1979 - Mr. Cable AccessNovember 16, 2014 at 6:45 PM

    There are any number of job applications online that requires you to upload your resume and then add in all the info from your resume onto parts of the rest of the form. Absolutely unnecessary.
