WCW Worldwide - Saturday, 11/25/00
The Cubs Fan
Larry's in again.
I think we may have seen the end of Bobby.
This week's big story is the London Lethal Lottery.
Oddly, Zybsko really likes the idea and Nitro<./li>
Zybsko never likes anything. Odd.
Back to Nitro, and the Awesome/Bigelow vs Stiener/Sting match.
On to the Kronic vs Steiner/Sting match.
And then Sting winning the shot on Thunder.
It's part two of the interview with Paul Orndorff.
Paul says that the Power Plant guys weren't ready to go on TV.
He says they (and others) that they should get out in front of smaller crowds.
He says that the fans don't feel involved in the matches.
He says they didn't learn the high impact/flashy moves from him.
He thinks Johnny the Bull goes too far and that hurts him.
He says that the kids don't have the right attitude today.
We look at E! looking at WCW Women
Hudson: "The channel between D and F in your cable guide"
We see them training at the Power Plant and weight training.
They come back and hype the magazine.
Larry: "Just what is 90% laid?"
Scott: "Stacy Kiebler, if I'm not mistaken."

But unfortunately, we've got a dumb question.
It's from Chris Walker, from Jackson, Missouri, to "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan
Why did you turn against the United States and join up with Team Canada?
Didn't he have a couple big interviews explaining all of this?
I have my limits, and transcribing Duggan is one of them.
Basically, the US never did anything for him, despite him being a nice guy, so he's gonna make them do stuff for him now.
It's time for the Professor's Pick of the week
Great American Bash, 1996, Marcus Alexander Bagwell vs Diamond Dallas Page
Both guys were looking to establish themselves as singles wrestlers, Tenay tells us.
Diamond Dallas Page vs Marcus Alexander Bagwell
DDP had just won the Battlebowl ring a month ago at Slamboree, and it was on the line here.
We're in the Benefactor period for Page, and the announcers are going over the angle in trying to figure out who the Benefactor is.
If I remember right, Bagwell was just about to start his heel turn on his American Males Partner Scotty Riggs, leading into becoming Buff Bagwell.
Apparently, Riggs and Bagwell had a coin toss earlier on Saturday Night and Bagwell won, so he gets the shot.
Clothesline from behind, knocking Bagwell out of the ring.
Elbow off the second rope.
Bring him back on he turnbuckle, shot to the chest, shot to the chest, Bagwell avoids it and pulls DDP out on the third.
Bagwell with a punch, punch, a whip into the guardrail and a punch that sends him over the rail.

Not a good one and he's slow to get up

Gut shot, Diamond Cutter, and the fans are starting to pop for it.
Dusty puts it over big.
Your Winner: Diamond Dallas Page (9:39, 6:19 shown)
It's so hard to go through the whole match and not call him Buff now.
Back to the studio
Tenay points out that Diamond Cutter was real new.
Next time - nWo Souled Out - Buff Bagwell vs Scotty Riggs.
Plus a big surprise.
Hudson thinks it's a missing Big Josh match.
Tenay says it has nothing to do with Big Josh, Matt Borne or Tony Borne.
Tenay says that, next week, we can pick the matches we want to see on WCW.com.
Hudson hopes some P.N. News is on the list.
Hudson hypes WCW Mayhem, WCW Magazine, "I'm Next" (Hudson: "Already on top the best seller list") and the Ultimate Guide to WCW. That's it for this week.
