No...this is not a retrospective

  • A couple of little plugs: If you haven't checked out my interview with Sir Robert Dundee, I (of course) highly encourage you to. Also, I've added a photo gallery to the Brad Armstrong tribute page.

  • Two items from the "Who gives a rat's ass?" department:

  • We're rushing through the back of the arena, where we find nWo Hollywood tearing their locker room apart, because there is an "OWN" symbol spray-painted on the wall.

  • We get the normal Nitro opening.

  • And we're LIVE from Pensacola, FL, for WCW Monday Nitro!!

  • Match 1: Bull Pain vs. Konnan

  • The Nitro Girls are back, in nice outfits.

  • Just in case we didn't get enough of the bald midget, Mean Gene is out to talk to DDP

  • We take a "very special look" at the Nitro Girls.
