I missed posting in the WORLD, turns out those threads close quick
From November 15th 1999...or as the weird say 15.9.99
The wheels flew off. It took longer for CRZ to get it, but damn, when he did, well...my favorite recap, except for the one match between Austin and Angle. And that Stevie Ray rant talkin bout Yaks
Backstage, there's Dr. Death Steve Williams...and a Jim Ross look a like...AWWW SHIT - they're WALKING - I feel a diatribe coming on...

Creative Control ask a Random Security Dude is Torrie's around. They ask him to relay that the bosses want to see her. Hey, was that Bill Banks?
VILLANO V (no entrance) v. EL DANDY (no entrance) v. PSYCHOSIS (no entrance) v. SILVER KING (no entrance) v. JUVENTUD GUERRERA (no entrance) in a pinata on a pole match - everybody gets sticks - I shit you not - the pinata FALLS OFF THE POLE a whopping SIXTEEN SECONDS into the match - not that anybody (apparently) notices. DR. DEATH STEVE WILLIAMS and NOT JIM ROSS are on the scene, and - nope, that's it. What a FUCKING POINTLESS WASTE. So Russo and Ferrara don't like Jim Ross - great, let's PUT IT ON THE FUCKING NATIONAL STAGE and pretend that it's entertainment. Thinking that SHIT like THIS is going to bring in the viewers and put WCW back on top to stay, make everybody money...I mean, they can't actually BELIEVE this. Hell, at this point I'm ready to believe that they KNOW their asses are gone in a month so they might as well get in every cheap shot they can while they have the keys to the kingdom. It's just *mind-boggling*. Fucking pathetic. Morons. I don't even need to tell you that they just PRETEND the pinata is actually up on the pole this whole time. Nor do I have to tell you that Williams gets in, crotches Guerrera on the top rope (bell rings at 4:20 - how apropos), then destroys pretty much everybody, culminating in stealing the cheque from Silver King and pocketing it. Commentary will go completely ignored - fuck you, WCW. I'm the first guy to harp about Ross' sharp decline in quality but that isn't the same as dressing up a guy to fake Bells Palsy symptoms - that's GOT to be over Bob Ryder's "line," if he EVEN had a spine anymore - Jesus. I swear to God I could quit watching this show right now and not feel like I'm missing a Goddam thing - I have NEVER been so annoyed by this show. Piss on the lucha libre that just MIGHT get the crowd interesting in, you know, WRESTLING, because this is a, you know, WRESTLING company - does NOBODY remember this? If you're unhappy that there's too much wrestling, well, shit, Sherlock, DON'T JOIN A WRESTLING COMPANY. Fucking morons.
You know, the BEST thing is WOW Magazine went and fired all the people that used to submit "straight" Nitro reports for the mighty Franchise - so what are you gonna do? I'm all you've got, baby - deal with the fact that I've ACTUALLY GOTTEN PISSED OFF BY A FUCKIN' TELEVISION SHOW. YOU HAVE TO READ IT.
(You don't HAVE to read it - there are many other fine reports done by many other fine recappers - I don't personally know the links to them, but I'm sure WCW.com has one, at least)
Don Imus sums it up best with "Jesus God almighty."
Okay, I've taken a break and now I'm back. I'm not sure I'll devote ANY amount of energy to the rest of this show, though.
Demonstrations are a drag. Besides, we're much too high
http://www.scrippsnews.com/node/55341 A nice little interview with her. They do get Awesome Kong wrong (Amazing Kong), but touch on how the Knockout division is going the way of the Divas with "cookie cutter" gals. Why she's gone?
