I like to re-read CRZ's recaps of Nitro and Thunder (they're almost always way more entertaining than the actual shows were) and man; WCW in 2000 was like a dead zone of interesting, common-sense angles.

We all know how bad the last couple of years of WCW were so I won't rehash old ground, but some weeks I just have to wonder how in the hell he stuck by Nitro 'till the end- I'd have given up by the spring of 2000.

There were so many little angles that went nowhere, or swerves that made no sense (and no, not all of them were Vince Russo's doing).

Even the WWF during it's bad period (1995) wasn't anywhere near as unwatchably stupid as WCW got.

I'm glad he archived all the reports because it's a real treat to go back and re-read all that stuff (so thank you, Chris!).

In some ways, I think that period is MORE watchable than 1993-1995 era WWF, because it was so bad it had a trainwreck quality to it. The jokes that are still made about that period to this day are worth it alone.

The really sad thing is that Tony used to be a pretty good announcer before he stopped giving a damn.

Tony sucked because he had Bischoff in his ear ordering him what to say. Same reason that Michael Cole blows.

How long has Eric Bischoff been whispering into Michael Cole's ear?

Ah, yes. That was from the period when WCW had absolutely no idea what was going on in their own company and was pretty much treading water. Interesting times.

Maybe if they hadn't spent extra time with the meeting...maybe one of their earlier scripts was better? Maybe not but what could be worse?
