"You know, this started off kinda funny - it's gettin' real pathetic." Well he's half right.
WCW Nitro 5.2.2001

How smug you were when you wrote me. "Oh, but they *signed* Daniels and Modest! Things are getting better and you're WRONG. They're going to get it *right* this time - the cruiserweights will be *protected.*" How SMUG you were. Listen, do you think I'm HAPPY that I'm right? Do think I LIKE the fact that I can call WCW demolishing the credibility of their light heavyweight division a mile and a week away? Hell, ANYBODY can do it at this point. But somebody is convinced that this is the way to book it - sure, the World Heavyweight champion has *no problem* tossing around four cruiserweights - what they're doing in the same ring to begin with....hell with it. It's a waste of my time.
WCW Nitro 5.2.2001

I'm not even *talking* about the WWF - if you can't defend WCW actions without bringing the WWF into it, you don't really have any business trying to defend WCW in the first place.
WCW Nitro 5.2.2001

Triple stack Steiner Recliner on Karagias, Kaz and Knoble - wow, Steiner involved with a KKK, who'da thunk it.
WCW Nitro 5.2.2001

Here's some replays. Up yours.
WCW Nitro 5.2.2001

Boy, this show just FLIES when I don't care about it...
WCW Nitro 5.2.2001

These guys are *still* gonna wrestle at SuperBrawl Revenge? I guess people who actually buy pay-per-views *are* idiots.
WCW Nitro 5.2.2001

Let Us Take You Back to Last Week where ECW's Dusty Rhodes ruined Tex Slazenger's chances of ever making it to WWF television - why put up a funny imitation when the real thing is still hamming it up on the other station?
WCW Nitro 5.2.2001

Two things to say - first of all, if his title is REALLY important to him, Steiner should just drop down and let Page pin him in 0:03 - then he'll be fresh for the title match. Of course, he should have done that in the first match as well, but that's not the way we deal with cruiserweights here in WCW. Which leads to my second question: what will it say when/if Page meets with more success against Steiner than did four cruiserweights?
WCW Nitro 5.2.2001

Poor Kanyon - everybody changes the channel and he comes out a minute later.
WCW Nitro 5.2.2001

Nino is a guy in a mask and black body suit. Hey, maybe it's Raven's girlfriend! Probably not.
WCW Nitro 5.2.2001

"What a swerve that was!" Yeah, I liked the part where he got his ass completely kicked for several minutes but managed to win anyway, because it made so much sense.
WCW Nitro 5.2.2001

I leave it to you to decide whether it was worth sitting through the rest of the show just for this one match.
WCW Nitro 5.2.2001

BUFF DADDY BAGWELL v. BRIAN ADAMS (Kids wanna ROCK!) - Now I'll give you a Brian Adams interview transcription, but I think expecting play-by-play on *this* match is probably just a little too unrealistic an expectation to carry. Let's just jump to the outside interference, shall we? Can you believe we had to sit through five minutes of this first?
WCW Nitro 5.2.2001

Now, normally I'd complain about the inaccurate timing, but let's face it: another four minutes of these two would have killed us all.
WCW Nitro 5.2.2001

MESH HEAD MUSH MOUTH (with Midajah & Earlier Tonight & Scott Steiner T-shirt wcwgear.com ad) v. KEVIN NASH & ? - the crowd wants Goldberg, the smarky smarks want Scott Hall. I have a feeling, as Nash takes to the mic, that they'll all be disappointed. (I personally am holding out for SAVIO VEGA!)
WCW Nitro 5.2.2001

He's got a chair - he swings - and we fade out.
Does anybody care?
Does *anybody* care?
WCW Nitro 5.2.2001

Rhodes whispers to himself (and the camera) "Oh, this is gonna be fun - it's GOOOOD to have Kevin Nash as a buddy." I refrain from checking my ironyometer.
WCW Nitro 12.2.2001

Stasiak is probably the *worst* interview in WCW right now - he's not even good enough for me to transcribe for posterity.
WCW Nitro 12.2.2001

It's seven to the hour...looks like they'll once again manage to time it perfectly and have this match end just in time for RAW to start. But maybe I'm getting ahead of myself...let's find out together.
WCW Nitro 12.2.2001

Right, right, right, flip, flop, grab the penis, double axe handle. Rhodes needs to PUT that thing away. Sheesh.
WCW Nitro 12.2.2001

Ref shoved into Rhodes - and Steiner sneaks in a giant kick to the jimmy (hmm, HE noticed, too) as Silverman's back is turned.
WCW Nitro 12.2.2001

Here's a Special Video Look at the Long History Between Diamond Dallas Page and Kanyon - wow, there's a lot more old Russo crap in this package than I would have like to have been reminded of...
WCW Nitro 12.2.2001

I think BOTH men were pulling the tights. How confusing!
WCW Nitro 12.2.2001

HEY! Chuck Palumbo and Roxy Powers have the same hairdo!
WCW Nitro 12.2.2001

Did it look like the ol' heat machine was full force in full effect last night? The portion of the crowd *I* kept seeing was sitting on their hands while the soundtrack was REALLY excited...who knows.
WCW Nitro 19.2.2001

QUOTE OF THE WEEK: This sucks. - Tony Schiavone, to close out last night's PPV (disclaimer: this quote just may be taken out of context)
WCW Nitro 19.2.2001

For those of you keeping score at home, this is the SECOND pay-per-view in a row to run long, necessitating "cut" footage to open up Nitro... Hey, that's what happens when you give Hugh Morrus and the Wall ten minutes between the bells!
WCW Nitro 19.2.2001

AND for the second month in a row, the funeral march plays over the PA as six pallbearers in black suits carry a closed casket to the ring as a "KEVIN NASH R.I.P - FEBRUARY 18, 2001" graphic appears on the Nitrotron. Poor WCW once again has the misfortune of booking this angle one day after Dale Earnhardt dies.
WCW Nitro 19.2.2001

So is it the Magnificent EIGHT now? Or is it Flair PLUS the Magnificent Seven? Ah, the problems of fluidic number space...
WCW Nitro 19.2.2001

Ms. Jones and Cat have a public chat for the benefit of our cameraman. She congratulates him for winning the commissionership again, and he thanks HER for being one of the three women not to get fired by WCW over the past few weeks. Well, he doesn't actually say that...
WCW Nitro 19.2.2001

Remember when Mike Awesome was heavyweight champion of the world? Hell, remember when Lance Storm had three belts? Well, nobody in WCW does!
WCW Nitro 19.2.2001

Tonight, he'll face the guy on the Nitrotron...and introduces - hey, that's Cesar Romero! No, wait, it's Hugh Morrus. Hey, I can see his fillings!
WCW Nitro 19.2.2001

We look backstage to see that, yes, Konnan and Animal are having fun with various implements backstage, including the dreaded *empty cardboard box.*
WCW Nitro 19.2.2001

Tony reveals that we're in the von Braun Civic Center in Huntsville, AL 19.2.1 and THIS is WCW Monday Nitro on TNT! (I wonder if jdw will find it all the way down here.)
WCW Nitro 19.2.2001

Chavo leapfrogs Kidman but Konnan gives him the facejam - rather, Chavo falls into a facejam and Konnan's all "yeah, that's what I meant to do" after a delay.
WCW Nitro 19.2.2001

But Animal is back in...gutshot - HE *POWERBOMBED* KIDMAN! HE *POWERBOMBED* HIM! YOU CAN'T POWERBOMB KIDMAN BUT ROAD WARRIOR BY GOD ANIMAL JUST DID! ANIMAL *RULES*!!
WCW Nitro 19.2.2001

Bagwell asks the cameraman to c'mere...then he asks again...then he gets rather unhappy and starts making demands. I bet what he REALLY wants is to direct!
WCW Nitro 19.2.2001

Bagwell takes a powder. I wonder if he's thinking "it all went wrong for me when I stopped to pose..." no, he's probably thinking "it all went wrong for me when I couldn't have a positive enough attitude to make it in the WWF locker room."
WCW Nitro 19.2.2001

OH BOY! BACK TO THE CHINLOCK!!!!!!!!!! WE'VE GOT ACTION!
WCW Nitro 19.2.2001

OOOH YEAH! It's the Night that the Heels do Cool Stuff!
WCW Nitro 19.2.2001

Castrol Motor Oily provides the replay of Kanyon grabbing the ankle, Bagwell hitting the Blockbuster, and they won't show the replay of Jones getting hers because this is a *serious* moment, folks. "Fans, this is horrible." You said it, Tony. HORRIBLY COOL OF KANYON. (Hey Zed, are you some kinda misogynist or something?) Umm, misogy-what?
WCW Nitro 19.2.2001

Cat says he doesn't need him to fight his battles - he'll take care of Kanyon later. Nonetheless, he climbs into the ambulance, the doors close...then somebody laughs. Oops, she should have waited until ten seconds after the guy said "Clear" just to be safe!
WCW Nitro 19.2.2001

Amusing moment has Steiner whipping LeRoux into the front row of fans...and by "amusing," I mean "as amusing as you can get when served up a big ol' plate o' SQUASH." I think LeRoux got in *one* punch to the stomach in this match. Steiner is content to spend more time challenging ringside fans to face him than to battle his opponent. And, just for fun, Steiner *really* pours it on for the finish. (Three Spicolli Drivers -> pin 3:47) If you don't like him, you can bite him. Or you can say FUHFUHWID during the replays.
WCW Nitro 19.2.2001

Yikes! Mr. T for 1-800-COL-LECT? Which sign of the apocalypse is THAT?
WCW Nitro 19.2.2001

Danny Young checks on Lash LeRoux backstage...he's got something internal happening - wow, this guy acts better than Stephanie McMahon!
WCW Nitro 19.2.2001

What do you think? Doing interviews without an interviewer: (a) innovative or (b) insane?
WCW Nitro 19.2.2001

"Not the Zoo" finally kicks in and here he comes. That's it, baby, KEEP the memory of the First Family alive! The spirit of Lightningfoot Jerry Flynn FLOWS through you!
WCW Nitro 19.2.2001

Morrus starts up a "USA" chant but does not say "HOOOOO."
WCW Nitro 19.2.2001

Bionic Elbows all around, double noggin knocker times two, four-way slap, flip flop and groin - you know, this is actually a pretty good Rhodes impersonation. Between this and Sting, Jarrett may have found his calling.
WCW Nitro 19.2.2001

The answer to your question - why did they hotshot this feud last night and now tonight - is Page is already bumped up to the match for the World Heavyweight championship, so suddenly we have to get THIS one out of the way. Make your own complaints about prior planning (and lack thereof) here.
WCW Nitro 19.2.2001

A clean pin in the main event? Is this really NITRO?
WCW Nitro 19.2.2001

The way things are going, it sure looks like it's gonna end like "Empire Strikes Back," with all the heels triumphant and the faces reduced to looking out a window, hoping for another movie so they can mount their comback...thing is, "Empire Strikes Back" was probably the best movie, so there are WORSE ways to go...
WCW Nitro 19.2.2001

Cat says in order to get at Chris Kanyon, he'll have to step down as commissioner. Then, he's gonna eat his ass like a pot of collard greens. Words fail me - as did logic to the Cat, seemingly.
WCW Nitro 26.2.2001

Backstage, Konnan asks for the camera to be turned on.... then he talks to...an unseen presence to his right. I can almost hear the direction now: "For the love of GOD, don't look in the camera! DON'T LOOK IN THE CAMERA!" Why wouldn't they want them to look in the camera? I mean, if Konnan is addressing us, wouldn't he want to LOOK at US? Right? Why wouldn't they want them to look in the camera? I have no idea. You know who not looking into the camera is a trademark of....yup, Banks. He still got a job there?
WCW Nitro 26.2.2001

O'Haire has the stick - hide the children:
WCW Nitro 26.2.2001

O'Haire will get his pay docked for looking directly into the camera, by the way.
WCW Nitro 26.2.2001

Moments Ago, Sean O'Haire said (and I'm guessing - no idea what he's saying)...
WCW Nitro 26.2.2001

Highlight of this match is referee "Blind" Scott James repeatedly displaying his stripes to Rick Steiner as if to say "Hey, look, I'm wearing stripes."
WCW Nitro 26.2.2001

Does ANY of this make you want to not turn the channel to RAW?
WCW Nitro 26.2.2001

BOOKA T. runs out and cleans house, then he, Page and Cat clear the ring. Where'd Hugh Morrus go? WHOA T's let his hair get nappy, hasn't he?
WCW Nitro 26.2.2001

Cat with a kick, right, right, into the ropes, kick, dancing, splits, uppercut. Didn't this guy just go seven minutes with Rick Steiner? No effect on him, huh? Okay.
WCW Nitro 26.2.2001

Wow, this is like the most moves I've EVER seen Luger use.
WCW Nitro 26.2.2001

Hot DAMN Booker T. is *still* the man. Good for him.
WCW Nitro 26.2.2001

Man, what if they DID manage to keep the viewers with that great six-man match? Do you think they've sat through all this NON-match crap AFTERWARD? One step up, two steps back...
WCW Nitro 26.2.2001

Kid Romeo vignette - the women like him, sure....but the GAY MEN like him even more!
WCW Nitro 26.2.2001

Riki Rachtman takes us to Pardi Gras - with Fastball, wrestlers, Nitro Grrls, 1-800-COL-LECT, America (eh) Online, and if you hadn't changed the channel by now, THIS just might have pushed you over the edge.
WCW Nitro 26.2.2001

When I get my hair cut, I'm gonna go with O'Haire's look, I think.
WCW Nitro 26.2.2001

It's uncanny - Buff Bagwell is *still* charging stuff to Lee M. Cardholder's WCW MasterCard - how does he keep getting AWAY with that???
WCW Nitro 26.2.2001

See the stars of WCW live - while you still can! Next Sunday, Johnson City!
WCW Nitro 26.2.2001




HELLO KITTY gang terrorizes city, family STICKERED to death!
