WCW Saturday Night - Saturday, January 15, 2000
- Alright, well this report is coming in after a fairly enjoyable MLK weekend back home.
From the looks of things, I didn't miss much on the wrestling front as it were.
It will be interesting to see what happened on Saturday Night leading up to a
mediocre PPV, big surprise there. Well enough for the openers, let's jump on in.
Oh one more thing, my email from the fans has really dropped. I promise as a
New Year's resolution that I will really really really try to start answering your mail if
you send it to me.
- Match #1 The Wall vs. Frankie Lancaster
- Well, welcome back Dan.
- Long story short: Typical squash match with Lancaster mounting a brief offense before
getting the crap beat out of him. The Wall wins with the Yakuza kick.
- YOUR WINNER: The Wall via Pinfall.
- Yeah, woo hoo great grand wonderful.
- And we're back with a discussion of the Nash vs. Funk, nWo vs. Commissioner match.
I could care less in all honesty, maybe if either guy in the match could bend his
knees I would care, but otherwise I don't really give a damn. The Triple Threat match is
being discussed as well. We get a replay of the forming of the Old Age Outlaws. We
also see Jarrett having to fight all of the geriatric superstars of wrestling. I
thought it was neat getting to see them again, but Jarrett doing the job to all of them
was a bit silly.

- They have the mics, oh I see they are supposed to be a boy band.
- Chavo, you almost saved it, but the over powering level of mediocrity in that ring could
not be saved by the likes of even you.
- Well, long story short: Somebody wrestled, somebody won. I don't really care.
There were some really great moves in this match, but the pre-match CRAP was so bad that I
just don't care.

" I didn't think things could get worse than my last angle" Karagias.
