Let's just say Xavier Doom inspired me.
Last night during Nitro, you know this is what was said to Schiavone by Steiner.
Complications caused me to miss Nitro, but I always have DDT Digest to fall back on. What I want to know is, "What was Mickey Jay doing in DDP's tights?" and I quote:
- Goldberg kicks out of the Cutter with authority!
- DDP goes into his tights for an illegal object.
- DDP pulls Mickey Jay between himself and a Spear.
- Goldberg jackhammers DDP into the ring from the apron. The ref is still down, though.
Well Mickey, there's a time and a place for everything, and that is NOT the place for you to be during a Nitro... Serves ya' right.
Listen, the DJ from Nitro is DJ Ran from Philly. The guy is a top notch DJ on Power 99 FM. Trust me, he's good. Can't help it if WCW makes him play the Sesame Street Theme.
Just wanted to let you know.
What a great Nitro. I'll give you one guess on who designed Blitzkrieg's new costume. He played SUPERSHREDDER in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II. Don't have it. Kevin Nash. That's the first thing I thought when I saw the Supershredder reincarnite known as Blitzkrieg. Maybe Shredder (Psicosis) and Supershredder will form some sort of alliance against a gang of fat guys that look like turtles. But that four corners match was great and I wanted Psicosis to win but didn't expect it.
It looks like WCW has finally realized they've got a lot of talent for a great night. But we all know about the WCW curse. They have a great night then next week they shaft us with an hour of taped NWO segments.
And Wade you need to keep a count of victims of the new ramp. You can call it Victims of the New Ramp Count. So far I've got two. Goldberg the second week of the new set and Flair last night. I thought I saw Nash slip up but I'm not sure.
Some notes concerning the April 19th Nitro in Gainesville, FL.
I found Piper bearable tonight - and Flair absolutely amazing on the mic. A pretty good segment. Too bad we had to watch it 4 times by show's end, and too bad we'll have to watch this match for Starrcade. Oh well, at least Piper will sell some of Flair's offense.
The 4-way cruiser match was incredible. Best match I've seen in years. Nice to see Psychosis get a run with the belt.
"The Swamp" is a crappy frat bar near campus. It's famous for huge crowds, obscene prices, drunken fistfights, and not serving minorities.
As a huge Norton mark, I was disappointed to see Steiner beat him so quickly. To clarify Wade's question about the ending, Steiner hit a low blow just before the suplex.
Buff has the support of the fans, the moves, and the charisma. Now all he needs is a credible finisher..
Seeing Flair no-sold this much is really really sad. I don't care if he is a heel, can we get a smidgeon of reality? And seeing Flair laid out for ten minutes off Nash's "feather-fall" powerbomb was patently absurd.
Good show in all, but Flair still needs better treatment.
I dunno'... maybe it was just me, but the whole thing where Nash ran down and started to protect and... well, cuddle Goldberg seemed a little faygala. DDP's heel turn is going along nicely (not that I could stand the guy before anyway but...). Besides that it was a pretty good show and, HEY, whadya' know? Nash can actually book stuff every now and then! Joy.
Re: the Steiner/Norton match: You must have looked away... after
- "Side suplex by Norton."
- Steiner kicks out.
- Norton sets up for a powerbomb.
- He spreads his arms and bumps the ref??!!!
- Must have some powerful arms...
- Steiner head-butts and forearms Norton in the crotch while the ref is out until Norton falls down.
- "Steiner comes back with a belly-to-belly."
I could see where you might subconsciously suppress it, tho.
Eewww, Brian Knobbs. Excuse me while I shudder.
And winning his first match back in WCW too. Eeesch.
Scott Steiner mentioned Buff's name as a male dancer was Digby Long. Digby Long, is that "G" rated? And I thought working out that much made "digby" smaller...? What's up, as they say, with that??
Yeah Psychosis!!! Now only if Rey Mysterio gets hurt and La Parka fills in as tag team champ I can happily retire from watching pro wrestling, my wishes all fulfilled.
I noticed the cameras keeping a good distance from Dusty Rhodes face. Maybe those scars on his forehead don't make the "G" rating either.
What happened to Nick Patrick? He was there for one match two weeks ago and now he's gone again... Maybe HE'S been with David Flair??
Well, despite TSN apparently throwing their schedule off once again just so I can't see that whoopass cruiser match from Monday night, I'm still curious as to when we might see something like this surface from Turnerland...----- Memo To: All WCW in-ring employees From: Turner Ltd. Survey & Stats Dep't. Re: Power bomb observations We have been observing matches wrestled by WCW employees recently and have noticed a startling fact which has been proven by close statistical observation of certain contests recently. Our liability insurance has been rising due to certain occurrences that should be remedied immediately. Through observation and computer calculation, it has been determined that the chances of any WCW employee successfully powerbombing Billy Kidman are about the same as the odds of Kevin Nash leaving WCW, getting a sex change, marrying Scott Hall, joining the WWF and feuding with Nicole Bass for the Women's title. Translated to the vernacular: 'No chance in Hell'. We recommend discontinuing these attempts as soon as possible. Thank you. -----
Just a funny thing a friend of mine said (and after all that's happened this week, I think we could all use a laugh): I was explaining to him about the Shockmaster fiasco from so many years ago. When I showed him the picture from Xavier Doom's WCW Hall of Shame he said: "Wow, looks like the Kool-Aid pitcher guy after a bender."
While looking through a store that was going out of business, I wandered into the clothing department. I saw all sorts of brand-x clothing. Among the featured item was a ONE WARRIOR NATION shirt (Priced at $16.99, but it was on the 70% off rack). The design was like a U.S. flag, with ONE WARRIOR NATION written in the stripes, and that Warrior logo in place of the stars. Curious, I looked to see if it was a left over WCW shirt. Nope. (c)1998 Ultimate Creations. It goes to show that if you deal with Warrior, it can only mean bad things. In this case, it meant going out of buisness.
