WCW Monday Nitro - Monday, 11/09/98

By Wade

It felt like nWo Nitro all over again...

Not extraneous comments from me this week - I was a slack-ass and didn't get around to doing this until Monday evening.

OK, a couple of self-serving comments:

  • We start off with a shot of the White House and various patriotic scenes, and Tony wetting his pants telling us that Hollywood Hogan will be announcing his candidacy for the President in 2000 tonight.

  • We're LIVE from the Nassau Colloseum in Uniondale, Long Island, NY, for WCW Monday Nitro!

  • The Nitro Girls do a "hat dance"

  • Mean Gene and Bobby Heenan are in the parking area, waiting for the nWo contingent.

  • We now get the usual Nitro opener.

  • Tony talks about Bret Hart putting men out

  • Match 1: Kaz Hayashi vs. Juventud Guerrera

  • The Nitro Girls dance in shiny pink overalls.

  • We take a fairly un-special look at Scott Hall and Giant helping Nash find the door two weeks ago

  • Match 2: Barry Horowitz vs. Alex Wright

  • Nash gets on the stick

  • Match 3: Lodi vs. IWGP Champion Scott Norton (w/Vincent)

  • Tony Jabrone is in the ring

  • We're back with Hour Number Two.

  • We go back to the parking area with Okerlund and Heenan

  • We see the "Nitro Girls Shopping Spree at Wigstock."

  • Just to twist the knife of "suck" just a bit deeper into my gut, we see part of Konnan's music video.

  • Bret Hart comes out in jeans and a t-shirt.

  • Match 4: Eddy Guerrero vs. Rey Mysterio Jr.

  • We take a full look at Konnan's music video.

  • Eric Bischoff and Miss Liz make their way down

  • We take an incredibly un-special look at Scott Steiner's roid rage last week.

  • Match 5: Scott Steiner (w/Buff Bagwell) vs. Chris Adams

  • The Nitro Girls dance with feather boas.

  • A "special look" at Lex Luger.

  • They advertise the card for the 12/30 show here in Philly, and the two matches mentioned are Ric Flair vs. Goldberg and Bret Hart vs. DDP. "Card Subject to Change."

  • The announcers talk about Nitro Extra, tomorrow night at 8pm. This will be helping to make up for the so-far-cancelled NBA season.

  • Match 6: Scott Steiner and Buff Bagwell vs. WCW World Tag Team Champions Rick Steiner and Judy Bagwell

  • An ad for the Chris Jericho shirt.

  • Match 7: Konnan vs. Bret Hart

  • Mean Gene is in the ring, making small talk, and calling out Chris Jericho

  • Match 8: Scott Hall and Giant vs. Kevin Nash and Lex Luger

  • If I can get a bit literary, I think that show could be best summed up by paraphrasing Gertrude Stein on Oakland - "There was no THERE there." It seems like three hours went by, and nothing happened. I dunno.
