WCW Monday Nitro - Monday, 08/02/99

Sioux Falls, SD

By Wade

Chad B. sends the following arena report:

It was my first live wrestling event and I thought it was a pretty good show. We showed up about an hour before the start of the show and we had decent seats. The crowd was very quiet before the start.

The first match was great, and Booker T and Stevie Ray looked huge. We didn't know that the gold wasn't on the line until after the match. Sting got a huge pop when he came out and the "Goldberg" chants were deafening. I think that I was the only one cheering for the greatest heel in the sport today, The Cat. Lenny Lane and Lodi were entertaining.

The whole first hour of the show some drunk guys behind me kept spilling beer and leaning on me. One time, the guys tried to lean on me and I moved and he hit face-first on the concrete, it was great. After that, I felt better.

Then Mean Gene came out and I seemed like the only one that was booing him. Face Hogan came out clean shaven and posed for us. Some guy had a sign that said "Beer me" and he chucked a beer into the crowd and was escorted to the exit.

Then it was time for Sting and Goldberg to clear Steiner and Sid out. We couldn't really tell what went on in back, but Goldberg came out and his back was bloody. Then Evan Courageous took on Disco. (I thought Disco couldn't dance any more???). Disco put on a pretty good show.

The Nitro Girls came out a lot and were good. DJ Ran was crappy as usual. The first family against Malenko and Douglas was not a very good match. The crowd wasn't into it at all. A Goldberg highlight show was on the big screen with Megadeth's new song. I was trying to get a Scott Hudson chant started when everyone asked me who the hell Scott Hudson was. Steiner came out and suplexed him and he was taken out on a stretcher. We all chanted "Bullsh#t".

Bobby Duncum came in and started to fight Saturn and all of a sudden it changed to Curt Hennig. The crowd booed the Rednecks heavily (except for me, of course). A few weak ECW chants started when Douglas and Malenko came out. DDP against Benoit was a good match. Torrie was soooo hot.

Mean Gene got on the stick and brought out Macho and he got a decent pop, but there was no George. When he told Miss Madness to get on her knees there was a big pop, and Rodman got a huge ovation. Except from me.

Vampiro and ICP and Raven came out to a spectacular entrance. Lots of fireworks and swearing in the music. I can't believe Eddy did the job to Vampiro. I guess someone has to put him over. Konnan and Rey made the save for Eddy and they got a lukewarm response. Hogan came out and then disappeared. Then the bad guys came out, then Sting. Then the man made his entrance. The match was terrible, the same as last week pretty much, with Hogan coming from somewhere and using a chair to get the good guys DQed. Then Nash powerbombed Hogan. Then Goldberg and Sting cleaned house and that was the show.

Biggest pops:

  1. Goldberg
  2. Hogan
  3. Sting
  4. Rodman?
Most heat:
  1. The Cat
  2. Triad
  3. Sid and Steiner
  4. Rednecks
Great show, I thought, except for the ending and the drunk fools.
