TAKA - I dunno, this one feels like it could go in any of the directions, but I assume he's the most over of the bunch since he came over from the WWF. Plus it'd be a great CW title match to see him and Rey hook it up.
Dark Society - Sting notwithstanding, these two could be a powerhouse heel team if they can get over enough and could launch Daniels into singles very well in the future.
Black Reign - Dustin is so good to push in this time, he can be someone who you really build up for the future when guys like Sting and Flair can't go anymore.
The Band - Storm and Kidman are a pretty odd pairing, Billy feels like he's here just to take a fall and make the Band look great.
Rey Mysterio - I find it interesting that you've been using Rey as a heel. IRL I don't think him as a heel would or could ever work very well, it's like turning Ricky Steamboat. But if you can pull it off, then good on ya, and the only way he gets there is big wins like this.
Palumbo and O'Haire - You've been doing well in making Wright and Glen more serious (no disco ducks to be found here) but I still can't see them getting past the NBT.
DDP - Kanyon getting the win would put him over pretty big, but I look at it as Goldberg needing a new challenge after Flair, so Page squeaks this one out.
Booker T - Hey, in my 2001 game, I think this is about the same time I gave Book the US title too! It makes him a WCW grand slam champion, which is pretty cool. Chavo with the title is nice, and he can stay in this elevated position going forward, but I don't think he can cheat 2 win enough for this one.
Goldberg - I think seeing another title run for Flair would be fun, but Goldberg is a Terminator here and there is no way an aged Ric gets through that when it becomes one on one. You've done a nice build here by showing Flair to outsmart him, but the curtain falls here.
I find it interesting that you've been using Rey as a heel. IRL I don't think him as a heel would or could ever work very well, it's like turning Ricky Steamboat.
To be honest, it's not working well even in the game.
By the way, most of my odd booking decisions are caused by the fact that it doesn't work well or other circumstances (such as The Wall's drug problems or the non-existent crowd reaction to some guys no matter what I do). And there is a small percentage of them caused by my mistakes (I suppose I have some Russo's blood in me). Anyway, it's not a dynasty with perfect storylines by any chance.
DDP - Kanyon getting the win would put him over pretty big, but I look at it as Goldberg needing a new challenge after Flair, so Page squeaks this one out.insert quote here
I really like Kanyon, and I like what you did with him in your dynasty. It somehow influenced what I have prepared for him here. He should be an innovator with cool moves as he was when he debuted in 1998.
The highlights of the Goldberg/Ric Flair feud are shown, starting from Goldberg's return to WCW and his domination over opponents. No more squash matches, no more silly talk, no more interviews - Goldberg just went out and destroyed his opponents. But could Ric Flair stop him? At first glance, it seemed like no one could, but Flair has been able to do the most damage to Goldberg so far. Can experience and dirty tactics overpower strength and athleticism? We gonna find out today. (76)
We are LIVE for Fall Brawl from KeyBack Center in Buffalo, NY. Mike Tenay, Tony Schiavone and Larry Zbysco are your announcers.
Match 1, WCW Cruiserweight Tag Team Championship: Dark Society (Shannon Moore and Christopher Daniels) (w/ Vampiro) vs Havana Pitbulls (Ricky Reyes and Rocky Romero) (w/ Sting). The commentators note that Sting must have seen something important in the young Pitbulls, as he agreed to mentor them for this match. The Pitbulls take the lead from the start, knocking Moore and Daniels out of the ring a couple of times. Vampiro intervenes, and the current champions regain the advantage. Sting attacks Vampiro and puts him in the Scorpion Deathlock at ringside! Ref tries to break the hold. Meanwhile Moore hits Ricky Reyes with the championship belt, and Daniels performs Angel Wings for three. Great opening match. (13:03, 67).
At the parking lot WCW President Eric Bischoff meets someone who came in a limo. "I'm glad you made time to come today. As the new WCW Commissioner, you get to see all the superstars in person to make your mind about their future in WCW." (66)
James Mitchell backstage promo. "Hardcore is not a garbage can. Not a road sign. Not a toy head, damn it. It's passion. It's a willingness to kill and be killed. It's the willingness to go all the way, not to win, but to destroy. Hardcore titles? Hardcore awards? Ahahahahaha. The only thing that matters is the number of souls destroyed. And today, my apprentice Black Reign will add two more to his collection." (56)
Match 2, Anything Goes Match: Black Reign (w/ James Mitchell) vs Crowbar (w/ Terry Funk) vs Bam Bam Bigelow. Terry Funk accompanies Crowbar to the ring after Black Reign attacked him last week on Nitro. Although there's no hardcore title in WCW, this match has great significance for each competitor to establish themselves as the top "extreme wrestler" on the roster. The match was held in the best traditions of ECW, with chairs and other stuff involved very quickly. As expected Crowbar and Bigelow teamed up against Reigns at first. As the match progressed moves were tougher and tougher. Reign tried to use thumbnails, but Terry Funk climbed into the ring and kicked him with a 2x4. Bigelow took advantage and hit a powerbomb on the thumbnails... only for two. Bigelow dragged a table into the ring, and another was set up behind the ring. James Mitchell ran around the ring trying to do something, but was caught by Terry Funk. Funk tried to put him through the table at ringside, but manager was saved by Reign. Bionic Elbow and Schizophrenic through the table for Funk! In the ring, Crowbar takes down Bigelow with reverse DDT on chair... 1...2... Black Reign stops it. BlackOut! 1...2... Bloodfaced Bigelow breaks a pin. Bam Bam puts table in a corner and places Reign near it. Runs with avalance... Reign dodges, and Bigelow ripped the table to shreds with his body. Reign made the pin for three. (10:22, 68)
At the parking lot, The Band - Kevin Nash, Claudio Castagnoli and Chris Hero arrived in the limo. They try to look into the first limo (supposedly with the WCW Commissioner inside), but it's closed. (46)
Video reminds all the events that led to the formation of The Band and the feud between Nash and Storm. (50)
Match 3: Chris Hero and Claudio Castagnoli (w/ Kevin Nash) vs Lance Storm and Billy Kidman. Storm and Kidman quickly took the initiative over their less experienced opponents. In terms of match quality and audience engagement, Storm and Kidman were head and shoulders above the rest. Castagnoli and Hero still have a lot to learn, and maybe they could learn from Nash? Speaking of Nash, he repeatedly interfered in the match, causing the referee to send him backstage. In that time Kidman goes for a Shooting Star Press on Hero, but Castagnoli struck him from behind with a chair. Hero quickly pins Kidman for three, while Castagnoli held Storm. Dirty win, but not unexpected from Kevin Nash's disciples. (12:29, 61)
AJ Styles got a message to meet with a new WCW Commissioner in his limo. AJ went here, got in and after a while came out. Gene Okerlund is here for a comment. Styles replied that the Commissioner had just wished him good luck. (37)
Match 4, WCW World Tag Team Championship: Chuck Palumbo and Sean O'Haire vs Alex Wright and Glen Gilberti. Gilberti and Wright gave the champions a hard time with a few quick moves, forcing them to regroup. Palambo and O'Hair then resorted to underhanded tactics and managed to take the lead, which they held onto until the end. Gilberti managed to get a hot tag and hit Palambo with Chartbuster. O'Haire breaks a pin. Gilberti and Palambo ended up fighting at ringside, while O'Haire blocked tornado DDT from Wright and finished him off with a Senton Bomb. Palambo and O'Haire retained their titles once again. (12:56, 68)
Chris Kanyon arrives at the parking lot and says he needs to find out who the new WCW Commissioner so he could plan his moves in the company accordingly. He looks through the dark windows, then wants to open the door, but pulls away and leaves the arena. (77)
Match 5, WCW Cruiserweight Championship: Jamie Noble vs Kaz Hayashi vs Yang vs TAKA Michinoku. There was some speculation that they might not be able to handle the pressure, judging by their performances at Nitro. But everyone played a great game and thrilled both crowd and management. TAKA Michinoku and did most of the work and almost won , but Jamie Noble managed to kick Michinoku out of the ring and make opportunistic pin on Yang to retain the title. (14:40, 74)
Diamond Dallas Page backstage interview. DDP is blaming himself for the mistake in a tag team match last week on Nitro. Page knows that his best years are behind him, but he'll have enough left for one more run, and Chris Kanyon will be the first to fall in that run. (51)
Video highlights Diamond Dallas Page and Chris Kanyon's feud. (71)
Match 6: Diamond Dallas Page vs Chris Kanyon. The wrestlers put on a great match filled with drama and psychology. In fact, they told the whole story in this one match better than dozens of promos before. By around 12th it was clear that the match was headed towards the end. Kanyon executed the Snake Eyes on Page. 1...2. Russian Leg Twist" followed. 1...2. Canyon held up the Rocker Dropper. 1...2...NO! That was close. Page blocked goes for Diamond Cutter, but Kanyon pushed him into the ropes and took him down with a crowning Flatliner! 1...2...NO! Canyon climbed the ropes... What was he going to do? Moonsault! 1...2... still NO! Kanyon couldn't believe his eyes. He got Page ready for the Flatliner again, but DDP blocked.-Both fell out of the ring. Kanyon goes for a Flatliner on announce table... Page blocked and did Diamond Cutter! Both wrestlers lay in the wreckage of the table and didn't even think about getting up. The referee counts them out of the ring. On the count of 7, the wrestlers started to move and crawl towards the ring... 8!... Page climbed onto the apron, Kanyon here as well... 9!..... 9.5.... Page rolled into the ring and Kanyon didn't make it. 10! (14:48, 70)
Booker T backstage interview. Booker had been a world champion five times, but the U.S. title means a lot to him. It was a title held by the best of the best. Booker reminded Chavo that he won the title, which Booker gave away voluntarily. Chavo could never take the title away from Booker. And today Booker is determined to get back what was rightfully his. (70)
All the events that led to Booker T challenging current WCW US champion Chavo Guerrero to a title is shown in a video vignette. (62)
WCW US champion Chavo Guerrero backstage interview. Chavo said he had been in the shadows his whole life. In the shadow of the big boys of WCW. In the shadow of his uncle. In the shadow of his family name. Chavo wasn't supposed to get anywhere above the cruiserweight division, but here he is with a title that had so much history... And despite all obstacles, Chavo is determined to write himself into history as one of the greatest US champions of all-time. (49)
Match 7, WCW United States Championship: Chavo Guerrero vs Booker T. Booker T was a really serious opponent for Chavo. After all, 5 world titles under his belt when this was Chavo's first such serious title. It made sense that Booker showed right away his in-ring expierence. Chavo had to regroup. Series of cheat moves allowed him to grab the lead. Booker T missed with a Harlem Hangover from the top. Chavo jumps on the top-rope right away and performes Frog Splash. Pin with feet on the rope for three. (15:08, 78)
Ric Flair backstage interview. Many people are asking when he will retire. Flair responds with a resounding "No!" and explains that wrestling runs in his blood. He admires the hardworking, younger individuals in WCW locker room who are willing to take his place. Flair considers it a great honor to be in the same building as them and is ready to win the title tonight to demonstrate that anyone can be a champion with enough ambition, passion, and love for the business. "WHOOOOOOO! Diamonds are forever. So is Ric Flair." (80)
Video hyping Rey Mysterio and AJ Styles feud. (38)
Match 8: Rey Mysterio vs AJ Styles. While Styles still needs to learn how to work the audience, both wrestlers live up to expectations and deliver a thrilling match. Styles misses a 450 Splash and Mysterio quickly seizes the opportunity to roll him up, but only for two. Styles climbs the top rope again, but Mysterio jumps in and executes a crowning Frankensteiner off the top for another close count of two. Mysterio goes for Corkscrew Moonsault from the top... and does it. Pinfall for three. Although Styles lost his performance tonight was great. (16:21, 76)
Highlight video of the feud between current WCW World Heavyweight champion Goldberg and former 16-time world champion Ric Flair. (76)
Match 9, WCW World Heavyweight Championship: Goldberg vs Ric Flair. Despite both wrestlers not being in great athletic shape for a big match, whether due to age or ability, the match was still a significant event. Even with his injured shoulder, Goldberg was a real threat, showering his opponent with hard punches. Flair, on the other hand, demonstrated in every way that Goldberg would have to kill him to take the title. Midway through the match, Flair sent Goldberg's injured shoulder into the steel steps and worked that particular "achilles' heel" for several minutes. Flair takes the steel chair, ref takes it away, and Ric kicks Goldberg with a low blow. Figure-Four Leglock at ringside! Referee breaks the hold. Back in the ring, Goldberg catches Flair with a killer Spinebuster for two. Flair begs for mercy. Goldberg grabs Ric's throat with both hands. Flair lands a kick to the groin! And again! And again! And again! Goldberg rolls around the ring, and Flair puts him in the Figure-Four Leglock again. Goldberg kicked out and accidentally hurts referee Nick Patrick. Flair hits Goldberg with a championship belt! Pinfall, but no ref. Ric wakes up Nick Patrick, turns around, and gets hit with the Spear! 1...2...NO! Goldberg finishes Flair with Jackhammer. And this time for three count. (17:14, 75)
Goldberg celebrates his victory with the championship belt after the match, and commentators pay tribute to Ric Flair's efforts. No one seems to be able to stop Goldberg now. Will he find a worthy opponent? We'll find out on the next Monday Nitro. Stay tuned!
Highlights from last night's Fall Brawl, including Goldberg's tough but still winning match against 16-time World Champion Ric Flair. (77)
Mike Tenay, Tony Schiavone, and Larry Zbysko welcome us in Des Moines, Iowa.
WCW President Eric Bischoff immediately opens the show and thanks everyone for the success of last night's Fall Brawl. He reminisces about the matches - AJ and Rey, Chavo and Booker - and commends their performances. However, one match stands out even from this impressive lineup. One achievement stands alone, and that is another victory for the undefeated world champion, Goldberg. Eric wants to celebrate and calls the champion into the ring. Goldberg comes out. “I don’t care about celebrating. I have just one question. Who’s next?”. Eric Bischoff: “It is up to a new WCW Commissioner who will be revealed next week!” Goldberg is about to respond when Sting interrupts him. “I watched your match against Flair last night. I saw a moment of doubt and fear in your eyes. If you are eager to defend your title tonight, I am ready.” It is official! Goldberg will defend the WCW World Heavyweight Title against Sting tonight. (95)
Last Night: In a supermatch Rey Mysterio defeated AJ Styles.
Match 1: Rey Mysterio vs Air Paris (w/ Torrie Wilson). Paris is trying to avenge his teammate and shows great wrestling skills, which few expected from him since he is mostly in the shadow of Styles in team matches. Air Paris misses with the moonsault, and Mysterio executes a Springboard Hurricanrana to win. (5:52) (76) After the match, AJ Styles enters the ring. As Mysterio prepares to fight, Styles reaches for the mic. “It was a great match yesterday and you won fairly.” Styles offers a handshake. Rey accepts and leaves the ring, while Paris asks Styles what the hell. (46)
Backstage, Booker T arrives. He is greeted by two guys – Homicide and Hotstuff Hernandez. "Hey, homie, it's Booker T!" They surround Booker and introduce themselves. Today, these guys have their debut match in WCW. Homicide says that Booker is a true hero for all the people that aren’t privileged to be born in a good place. Booker thanks them and wishes luck. (46)
Match 2: Above Average (Simon Diamond and Johnny Swinger) (w/ Mike Sanders) vs L.A.X. (Homicide and Hotstuff Hernandez). LAX are immediately attracting the commentators' attention to their potential. So much so that Sanders was forced to intervene to bring advantage back to his proteges. Hernandez got a hot tag. He quickly takes out everyone, even Sanders who had climbed on the apron. Hernandez finishes off Diamond with a sit-out powerbomb, while Homicide jumps with a Frog Splash to win. (6:23)
Booker T in-ring promo. “I have never got a rematch for the world championship. And yesterday I was ready to regain my US title. But Chavo cheated. I started in WCW from the bottom, it was hard, but never once, despite the temptations, I didn’t achieve victory like Chavo. That's not the game of a champion.” Booker wants to resolve this injustice. And he challenges Chavo Guerrero to a match. If Chavo isn't a coward – he'll accept. (78)
Last Night: Jamie Noble defended his Cruiserweight Championship against three opponents – Kaz Hayashi, Yang, and TAKA Michinoku. The commentators are thrilled with the athleticism of these young athletes. (37)
Legendary wrestler Marty Jannetty is in the crowd tonight!
Match 3, WCW Cruiserweight Championship: Jamie Noble vs TAKA Michinoku. Commentators wonder what Marty Jannetty is thinking as he looks at tonight's cruiserweights. The match itself was over the top and worthy of being on PPV. Jamie manages to put his foot on the ropes after Michinoku Driver. Michinoku prepares for the second one, but Noble counters with a Jumping Tombstone to win. (12:19) (77) After the match, Noble and Michinoku help each other up, and the crowd (including Marty Jannetty) gives them an ovation.
Tonight - Chuck Palumbo and Sean O’Haire defend the WCW World Tag Team Championship against Lance Storm and Billy Kidman.
Backstage, Kevin Nash is furious in the office of WCW President. “Why the hell Storm and Kidman got a title shot instead of my guys, who defeated them just 24 hours ago?!” Bischoff answers that it was his decision and if Nash wants to make a clail, he should do it to the new WCW Commissioner next week. Nash: “You better make better decision, if you don’t want my guys to destroy your company. I hope a WCW commish will see the next match…”. (75)
Match 4, WCW World Tag Team Championship: Chuck Palumbo and Sean O’Haire vs Lance Storm and Billy Kidman. The entire crowd was on Storm and Kidman's side tonight and really wanted to see them with the championship belts. They had a great chances, but Claudio Castagnoli and Chris Hero hit Kidman in the back with baseball bats. O’Haire quickly pins him to retain the titles. (9:53) (79)
WCW US champion Chavo Guerrero in-ring promo. “Booker T talks about injustice? Booker was placed at the top by people like Russo or Bischoff. I worked my way here from the bottom. Same in life. Right now I am the United States champion and want to be considered the best in history. Booker T doesn’t deserve a title shot. I'll challenge anybody, but on one condition. It has to be a former U.S. champion.” Hugh Morrus accepts. (69)
Match 5, WCW United States Championship: Chavo Guerrero vs Hugh Morrus. Morrus missed a No Laughing Matter, and Chavo finished him off with a Frog Splash. (7:29) (78)
Last Night: Chris CKanyon and Diamond Dallas Page almost killed each other. It was literally a split second that decided the winner, when DDP managed to get in the ring and Kanyon didn't.
Chris Kanyon in-ring promo. “Page managed to get away with a countout rule. It was act of cowardice. Because he couldn't stand a real wrestling innovator in a fair fight.” Diamond Dallas Page responds. “I don’t make the rules. But if you want to finish it, I am ready to do it right here and now”. Kanyon replied that they will do it again, but on Kanyon’s terms. He is about to leave the ring, but cheap shots DDP and performs a Flatliner. (81)
Match 6, WCW World Heavyweight Championship: Goldberg vs Sting. A great match that was the highlight of the evening. Afterward, the commentators called it the best Monday Nitro match of the "new era," and many would have to agree with them. Sting almost captured a win after choking Goldberg down with a cable. Ref takes a bump. Vampiro comes to the ring and takes Sting down with a Nail in the Coffin. Goldberg finishes Sting with a Jackhammer to retain the title. (15:10) (80)
Backstage, WCW President Eric Bischoff is waiting for a new WCW Commissioner. A limo slowly pulls into the parking lot. (68)
Mike Tenay, Tony Schiavone and Larry Zbysko welcomes us to Monday Nitro from Nassau Coliseum, Uniondale, NY.
Eric Bischoff in-ring promo. "I've run WCW in different periods. I challenged Vince and kicked his ass. It was these corporate idiots in nice suits killed what we had built together. When I managed to buy out WCW and brought it back to life, man, my dream came true! I became the happiest person in the world! But guess what? Now I'm in the shoes of those corporate guys. I can no longer give you the show you deserve, as I need to balance between here and office. So I found a man. His name, his life, his existence means wrestling. Not soap opera. Not sports entertainment. But wrestling. So please welcome the new WCW Commissioner... 'THE AMERICAN DREAM' DUSTY RHODES!" (62)
Dusty Rhodes is here! Bischoff welcomes him and leaves the arena… forever? Rhodes takes the mic. “Wrestling is not what it used to be. I've seen a lot. Now it doesn't count who can put on the best match. Now it counts who is more brightly dressed, who has the weirder entrance theme, who can attract the news headlines. When we first started, it was about who is the best to win. The best athlete. The best fighter. The best wrestler. Was there controversy? There was. But we knew, in the end, the title always goes the best. Ric Flair. Harley Race, Buddy Rogers, Jack Briscoe... Now? No one has any honor now. No honor code. And I'm here to make this sport great again. You want cartoon stars and funny stories? Then go see Vince and his WWE. I'll release anyone from the locker room who wants to go there. But if you want to stay here -- in what will very soon be an oasis of authentic wrestling like it used to be -- then you must become a true athlete, competing with honor and pride. From now on, only fair fights will take place here, and only the best will win. I'll do everything in my power to make that happen!”...
Ric Flair is here to respond! "I agree with you. We had a lot of history, but I agree with you. You saw my match with Goldberg at Fall Brawl. It was all that you talked about. What about rematch tonight?". Dusty responds: "There won't be another Flair-Goldberg rematch as there are many other gyus ready to challenge World Champion. Goldberg was scheduled to have the day off, but in my era, there weren't such things for a champ. So Goldberg is better to dress up, pack up and head over here, as he has a new contender for the WCW World Heavyweight Championship." Rhodes reveals that Flair will get a title match tonight - for WCW World Tag Team Championship if he'll find a partner by the end of the night. (84)
Match 1, WCW Cruiserweight Championship: Jamie Noble vs Elix Skipper. Noble blocked a top-rope maneuver from Elix and finished him with a Tombstone. (6:48) (73)

Backstage, Marty Jannetty approaches WCW Cruiserweight champion Jamie Noble and praises him for his last matches. (47)
Backstage, Ric Flair visits his friend Arn Anderson and his protégés, Steve Corino and CW Anderson. Anderson informs him that they already have a match tonight and competing in a second match won't help Flair much in his fight for the titles. But in the future Arn would be happy to help. (77)
Match 2: Havana Pitbulls (Ricky Reyes and Rocky Romero) (w/ Paisley) vs The Enforcers (Steve Corino and CW Anderson) (w/ Arn Anderson). CW Anderson puts Reyes down with a Spinebuster at ringside, and in the ring Steve Corino performs an Old School Expulsion to win. (5:47, 74)
Vampiro, accompanied by Shannon Moore and Christopher Daniels, in-ring promo. “Do you remember old Sting? Vigilante. Mysterious. Everyone was scared of him. But then, he became like everyone else. Weak. Spoiled. A shadow of his former self. That what happens when you want to be nice and good. If you go to the dark side, you stay there. Or you don't go at all. These two guys beside me did right choice. And I'll bring them to the top." Vampiro issues an open challenge for the titles. Air Raid accept. (72)
Match 3, WCW Cruiserweight Tag Team Championship: The Dark Society (Shannon Moore and Christopher Daniels) (w/ Vampiro) vs Air Raid (AJ Styles and Air Paris) (w/ Torrie Wilson). Vampiro again tries to help his guys. Sting attacks Vampiro and locks him in the Scorpion Deathlock at ringside! Shannon Moore was distracted by this and got caught in Styles Clash. 1-2-3... and we have the NEW WCW Cruiserweight Tag Team champions! (8:54) (77)
Backstage, Booker T, Homicide and Hernandez arrive together. Looks like they became friends. (52)
Backstage, Rey Mysterio comes to Dusty Rhodes. "I defeated AJ Styles at Fall Brawl, but he got a title shot?". Dusty replies: "As far as I know, you don't have a partner now. If you'll find a partner, you'll get a title shot." (59)
Backstage, Ric Flair runs into Chris Kanyon, who cheekily offers to be Flair's partner tonight on the condition that he decides the tactics. Flair declines and says he'll make to find a partner. (81)
Backstage, Booker T asks Dusty Rhodes for another US title shot. Dusty makes a match between his and Rey Mysterio, the winner will get US title match next week. (65)
WCW US champion Chavo Guerrero in-ring promo. He insults Booker T for crying his way into a title shot. As last week he is eager to prove himself as the best US champion in history and issues an open challenge to any former US champion. It’s answered by Jim Duggan! (70)

They were great. Sting accidentally attacks ref with a Stinger Splash. O'Haire tries to save the match and hits Sting with the title belt. Flair kicks O'Haire with a low blow and then takes the belt to hit Palumbo in the head! Pinfall, ref comes to count. 1… 2… and 3! Ric Flair and Sting are NEW WCW World Tag Team champions! (11:50) (81)
WCW World Heavyweight champion Goldberg in-ring promo. "No one will tell him what to do. Not Bischoff. Not Rhodes. Now... who is my next opponent? Who's next?" WCW Commissioner Dusty Rhodes comes to the ramp. "You've beaten everyone in WCW. No one here can match you, I agree with that. But that's the beauty of it because your future opponent, even though he was a world champion too, has never stepped into a WCW ring before. Until now. You may have no equal among wrestlers. Try fighting a fighter. So, I present to you your opponent in the world title match at Halloween Havoc... KEN SHAMROCK!" The famous UFC champion "The World's Most Dangerous Man" Ken Shamrock steps onto the ramp and stares Goldberg down. (92)
Last Week: The new WCW Commissioner Dusty Rhodes brought a new opponent for the undefeated WCW World Heavyweight champio Goldberg. It's the famous MMA fighter and former UFC champion Ken Shamrock! (79)
Mike Tenay, Tony Schiavone and Larry Zbysco welcomes us to a new episode of WCW Monday Nitro from Cow Palace, San Francisco, CA.
Tonight - Chavo Guerrero vs Booker T for WCW United States Championship. (67)
Tonight - Ric Flair and Sting will fight Chuck Palumbo and Sean O’Haire in WCW World Tag Team Championship rematch… in no holds barred match! (63)
Ken Shamrock in-ring promo. “I am excited to stand in WCW ring. Before wrestling, I had been destroying my opponents in the MMA ring for years. I choked them. I was kicking them. I was punching them. I broke their ankles. I was suplexing them. That was part of me. And in wrestling it was different. But I found my home here. Sports entertainment was good. But something inside of me demanded that very fight that I had in MMA. And that's when WCW came along. The new WCW. There's a real spirit of fighting. There's a real fight. And there's a champion here that I haven't beaten yet. Goldberg. I've beaten the best of the best. I've beaten the most formidable, the most evil, the most fearsome fighters in the world. And now I'm here for you, Goldberg!" (73)
... WCW World Heavyweight champion Goldberg is here! "Maybe you did beat the meanest, most formidable, most fearsome fighters in the world. But here? In WCW? In MY ring? You're only next!" (88)
Match 1, WCW Cruiserweight Championship: Jamie Noble vs Christopher Daniels. Daniels lost his Cruiserweight Tag Team belt last week, but tonight has a chance to become Cruiserweight singles champion. It was the worst title defence for Noble so far. Simply because the styles of Noble and Daniels somehow didn't match up. Nevertheless, Christopher proved to be a great challenger. He missed Best Moonsault Ever and got caught into Tombstone. Jamie Noble retains the title. (9:48) (65)
WCW Commissioner Dusty Rhodes in-ring promo. "It's only been a week since I became a WCW Commissioner, but I've met so many talented guys who could be WCW superstars. And I've met those who haven't gotten a fair chance in the new WCW so far. So, I decided to organize a special tournament for them - the Dusty Rhodes Invitational. Anyone can enter it. This is your opportunity to make a name for yourself and appear on national TV. The winner will receive a special $100,000 prize. Final part of tournament will be held at Halloween Havoc. And qualifying is starting right now!"

(4:45) After the match, The Band continues the beatdown. Billy Kidman makes the save with a chair. Lance Storm challenges Nash to a one-on-one match. Nash replies: “You need to grow up to the level of the big guys first. The challenge is denied”. Dusty Rhodes comes here! He makes his move: Lance Storm and Billy Kidman will face Chris Hero and Claudio Castagnoli in a tag team match. If The Band win, there won't be Nash-Storm match ever. If Storm and Kidman win, Storm will fight Nash at Halloween Havoc, with Hero and Castagnoli banned from the ringside. (73)
Match 3, Qualifying for $100,000 Dusty Rhodes Invitational: Black Reign (w/ James Mitchell) vs Crowbar. The commentators highlighted that they have a history. Match quickly turned into a brawl.

Backstage, Booker T arrived at the building with his buddies, Homicide and Hernandez, who cheered him on before his title match. (44)
Backstage, Gene Okerlund interviews... Bobby Heenan! Okerlund asked why he came to the event. Heenn expressed his resentment that the new WCW has excluded him. However, he claimed to know WCW better than anyone else and the talent that's out there. He planned to find real talent, invest in it, and lead it to a world title, just like he had done in the past.
Match 4, WCW Cruiserweight Tag Team Championship: Air Raid (AJ Styles and Air Paris) (w/ Torrie Wilson) vs Jung Dragons (Kaz Hayashi and Yang). Yang comes from the top rope, and Styles catches him into a Styles Clash to make a first title defence. (4:52) (73)

Mike Tenay, Tony Schiavone and Larry Zbysko welcome us to WCW Monday Nitro from Long Beach, CA.
Tonight - Arn Anderson has requested a TV time on the show for an important announcement.
Tonight - Ken Shamrock will make his WCW debut match against Chris Kanyon.
Sting in-ring promo. He's had enough of Vampiro and their unfinished business. He wants to end their feud once and for all, right here, right now. Vampiro is here to respond, accompanied by Shannon Moore and Christopher Daniels. He again cuts a promo about Sting wanting to be good for everybody, but neglecting his darkside, that makes him weak. Vampiro sends his troops to the ring - Daniels got a Scorpion Deathdrop, Moore was catched into powerbomb. Dark Society retreats. Vampiro gives them steel chains and sends them to the ring again! Havana Pitbulls make a save. Sting grabs a mic. He has a proposition for Vampiro if he won't do the job himself. Six-man tag match at Halloween Havoc: Sting and Havana Pitbulls vs Dark Society. Vampiro accepts on one condition - it will be a match with no rules, no limits... in a steel cage... with steel chains inside… Full Mayhem match! (50)
Match 1, #1 Contendership for WCW Cruiserweight Championship: Shannon Moore vs Christopher Daniels vs Yang vs Paul London vs Elix Skipper vs Kid Kash. WCW Cruiserweight champion Jamie Noble and his new friend Marty Jannetty join the commentators. Former ECW TV champion Kid Kash returns to WCW!

Match 2, 1/4 Finals of $100,000 Dusty Rhodes Invitational: TAKA Michinoku vs CM Punk.

During the match, Bobby Heenan, who is on the lookout for his new client, came to the ring. Michinoku as the more experienced wrestler rightfully took the lead and was the favorite. But in the end CM Punk blocks the Michinoku Driver, performs Pepsi Twist and wins to the great surprise of the crowd and commentators. (4:07) (65)
WCW Cruiserweight Tag Team Champions Air Raid backstage interview. But before they could answer a single question, they were attacked from behind by Rey Mysterio and Juventud Guerrera! (49)
Match 3, 1/4 Finals of $100,000 Dusty Rhodes Invitational: Kaz Hayashi vs Alex Wright. Kaz Hayashi had been thinking about singles success for a long time, and this tournament was a great chance for him. For Wright, it was a chance to get some wins under his belt and climb higher in the WCW roster. Both wrestlers had little to show for the time allotted. And in the end Wright rolls up Kaz after German Suplex to win. (3:50) (55)
Arn Anderson, with Steve Corino and CW Anderson, is here for a special announcement. He calls out his friend Ric Flair. "I've seen your matches since the beginning of the new WCW. I've always been a realist. You and I are both going downhill. The business doesn't revolve around us anymore. It ended for me four years ago. For you, it's over now. The business is behind the young ones, the guys who are standing in this ring now. CW Anderson is a better Anderson than I ever was. Steve Corino is a future world champion. They're the future. Look... I'm just an average guy who built a successful career, thanks to you, Ric. Thanks to being surrounded by the best of the best - Tully Blanchard, Barry Windham, Dean Malenko... and other Horsemen. I'm telling you as your best friend - you can't do everything alone anymore. Now you are average. You need the same kind of team that I had my whole career. You need the Horsemen, Ric. And when I look at these guys, I see that they're ready, they're worthy. Let us help you, Ric. With us, you'll go back to the gold. We guarantee it!" Wait... Does Arn Anderson propose to resurrect the Four Horsemen? It looks like it is... (77)
... But before Flair can respond, WCW World Tag Team Champions Chuck Palumbo and Sean O'Haire come out on the ramp. They taunt Flair and Anderson and call themselves the future, as they've beaten every team in WCW, and there's no one here to take the titles away from them. And that retirement home in the ring makes them, real athletes, want to puke. Ric Flair grabs the mic. He says it pained him to hear Arn call him "average." Ric Flair is Ric Flair, always. But Arn is right - all of his big successes have always been with The Horsemen. It was the most elite group. Ric doesn't know Steve Corino, doesn't know CW Anderson, but since Arn sees something in them, Flair will try to see it. Flair is not sure if reviving Horsemen is a good idea right now... But what Ric does want is to kick those two punks' asses and get their gold back. Flair suggests that Steve Corino be teamed with The Nature Boy. Corino replies that it's a huge honor for him. Flair and Corino challenge the champions to a match at Halloween Havoc. Palumbo and O'Haire accept the challenge. But Flair also wants some action... right now! (67)
Match 4: Ric Flair (w/ Arn Anderson, Steve Corino and CW Anderson) vs Chuck Palumbo (w/ Sean O’Haire). Corino hit Palumbo in the head with a brass knuckle. Flair and ref didn't see it. But Flair uses the opportunity and rolls up Palumbo for three counts. (4:50) (77)
Ken Shamrock arrives to the building. Tonight he will debut in WCW ring! (72)
Backstage, Ric Flair is celebrating. Corino told him that he had helped Flair. This news came as a surprise to Flair, and he appeared unhappy as he thought he won in his own. (64)
Backstage, Diamond Dallas Page wishes Ken Shamrock luck and tells him he will watch his back tonight as he knows Kanyon's sneaky nature. (66)
Last Week: L.A.X. swerve on Booker T and help Chavo Guerrero to retain the WCW United States Championship. (72)
Booker T in-ring promo. "I saw potential in LAX, but they made a wrong choice. Now they'll have to reckon with what I have in store for them." WCW US Champion Chavo Guerrero and L.A.X. are here. "Looks like you're not a 5-time champion anymore, but a 2-time loser to me... My whole career I've been blown in my ears that I'd never get anything done. That I'm too small. Too low. Too not_superstar_material. Even in the Guerrero family - there was always the great Eddie and everybody else. It was a struggle for me. But I overcame it. Now I see the same struggle in these guys. Together, we're going to overcome everything. I'm going to be the greatest U.S. champion in history. And these guys will dominate WCW like nobody else." Chavo Guerrero says that Booker won't get another shot at the title. But he is interrupted by WCW Commissioner Dusty Rhodes. "It is not your decision to make, it is mine. In fact, I have three decisions. First, Chavo and L.A.X. are fined $1,000 each. Second, Chavo will defend WCW US title at Halloween Havoc vs Booker T in the final match. And third, one of you should bring his ass to the ring for a match against Booker right now!" (62)
Match 5: Booker T vs Homicide (w/ Chavo Guerrero and Hernandez). Despite Chavo and Hernandez's attempts to interfere, Booker T wins after Harlem Sidekick and Axe Kick. (4:44) (59)
Last Week: Dusty Rhodes made a tag team match The Band vs Storm and Kidman. If The Band win, there won't be Nash-Storm match ever. If Storm and Kidman win, there will be a match Nash vs Storm at Halloween Havoc, with The Band banned from the ringside. (46)
Match 6: The Band (Chris Hero and Claudio Castagnoli) (w/ Kevin Nash) vs Lance Storm and Billy Kidman. It makes sense that Kevin Nash actively interfered in the match. But in the end Lance Storm blocks Cyclone Kick from Hero and puts him in Half-Boston Crab after a spectacular roll up. Kidman eliminates Castagnoli from helping with a top-rope dropkick. Hero taps out. (9:17) (66)
Chris Kanyon backstage interview. "I don't understand all the hype around Shamrock, as I am much more interesting wrestler.” (74)
Match 7: Ken Shamrock vs Chris Kanyon. This match was meant to test Ken Shamrock's ability to challenge Goldberg and to see if he was worthy of the main event. And Ken certainly proved himself. Both wrestlers put on an excellent match that will surely go down in Monday Nitro history, at least after the reboot. Chris Kanyon goes for a Flatliner, but Ken blocks and puts his opponent into Ankle Lock, causing Kanyon to tap out. (14:01) (82)
After the match, Goldberg appears on the ramp with WCW World Heavyweight title on his shoulder, and the two wrestlers stare each other down. (74)
Memo 006: Why to be good in the ring, when you can become 'toxic' leader of the locker room
You might think that things have calmed down since I haven't sent out many memos lately.
I didn't lose all the champions in one day like it happened before. And the other guy with a bright future wasn't injured for a year. Also, the guys that I liked and planned to give a big push to didn't decide to try all the drugs in the world.
There are a lot of shenanigans happening in the locker room. Every show seems to have some kind of brawl, drunk superstars, conflicts, or all of them happening at once.
For instance, Marty Jannetty missed the show (only his third absence ever!), because he was too drunk to stand on his legs. I don't expect him to fly from the top-rope to ringside. I just want him to be with Noble, able to walk, and say some words every once in a while. It's not a hard job, but apparently, it is for him.
Everyone in the locker room is unhappy with Diamond Dallas Page's behavior. DDP is completely isolated from the rest of the guys. Nobody talks to him, and nobody wants to do anything with him. If even happy and cheerful DDP can't find himself in our locker room, then there is no possible save for our backstage morale.
Kevin Nash has become the leader of the negative part of the locker room in the absence of other "toxic" superstars. Good job, Kev! That's quite an achievement. Maybe you could try to do something in the ring, but I guess it would be too boring for you. Anyway, just in the last month, Nash has been involved in a couple of brawls, pranks, missed meetings with the road agents, and has received plenty of fines and stern warnings.
We've had a couple of good shows.
But if you ask me, I would still say that the ship is sinking.
Last Week: Ken Shamrock made his WCW in-ring debut and won against Chris Kanyon. In 6 days, he will challenge Goldberg for the WCW World Heavyweight Championship. (74)
WCW Monday Nitro starts with Mike Tenay as the only commentator at the table.
Tonight - Chavo Guerrero, Chris Kanyon and Vampiro vs Booker T, Diamond Dallas Page and Sting. (67)
Tonight - Contract signing for a Halloween Havoc match between WCW World Heavyweight Champion Goldberg and former UFC champion Ken Shamrock. (77)
WCW Commissioner Dusty Rhodes opens the show with a special announcement. introduces a new commentator for WCW Monday Nitro... JERRY 'THE KING' LAWLER! (67)
Match 1: Jamie Noble (w/ Marty Jannetty) and Air Raid (AJ Styles and Air Paris) (w/ Torrie Wilson) vs Rey Mysterio, Juventud Guerrera and Kid Kash. In a cool 6-man cruiserweight action Noble catches Juventud on the Jumping Tombstone for the win. (8:52) (67)
Match 2, 1/4 Finals of $100,000 Dusty Rhodes Invitational: Elix Skipper vs mystery participant. Skipper’s opponent is… TAJIRI! Elix was good, but Tajiri just couldn’t lose in his debut match. Tajiri won after Buzzsaw Kick. (4:36) (63)
Match 3, 1/4 Finals of $100,000 Dusty Rhodes Invitational: Billy Kidman vs Chris Hero (w/ Claudio Castagnoli and Kevin Nash). Yes, we have a mistake in tournament graphics: there is Castagnoli instead of Hero. I know. It's still WCW, what do you expect from us?... Anyway, to enter the main bracket of the tournament, Hero defeated Lance Storm with the help of his friends. Now he goes against Storm's partner. The wrestlers put on a good show with Kidman taking the lead towards the end. Kidman goes for a Shooting Star Press. Nash and Castagnoli has no other options, but to intervene, resulting in a DQ. (5:42) (66) After the match, The Band attacks Kidman, but Lance Storm with a chair comes to his rescue. (48)
Ric Flair, Arn Anderson, Steve Corino and CW Anderson arrive at the arena in a luxurious limo. (62)
Ric Flair, Arn Anderson, Steve Corino and CW Anderson in-ring promo. Flair does the talking. “Maybe one day, we can call ourselves the Four Horsemen. But for now we have more short-term goal. I trust this young guy, Steve Corino, as we will be the next WCW World Tag Team Champions in 6 days. That's something that will be on your resume for the rest of your life, buddy! WHOOOOOOO!" (69)
Match 4: Steve Corino (w/ Ric Flair, Arn Anderson and CW Anderson) vs Sean O’Haire (w/ Chuck Palumbo). Commentators call O'Haire one of WCW's most promising superstars and recall that O'Hair and Palambo have held their titles since January 14, 2001 (with a short break for a week) - for 9 months already. Corino actively plays dirty. O'Haire accidentally knocks the ref down, and a brawl begins between all the competitors outside the ring. During the fight, a chair ends up in the ring. Corino attempts to grab it, but Ric Flair takes it first to hit his attacker Palambo. As a result, Corino is left in the ring with nothing, turns around, and receives a Reverse DVD from O'Haire. 1...2...3. (5:33) (69)
WCW World Heavyweight Champion Goldberg arrives at the building. (78)
Match 5: Dark Society (Shannon Moore and Christopher Daniels) vs Havana Pitbulls (Ricky Reyes and Rocky Romero). Rematch from Fall Brawl. Moore and Daniels dominated, but Daniels' mistake at the end, missing with the Best Moonsault Ever, resulted in Reyes and Romero knocking him out of the ring with a Double Superkick, then performing a Cuban Missile Crisis on Moore to win. (8:33) (68)
Ken Shamrock arrives and got caught by Gene Okerlund for an interview. ”UFC has taught me that signing a contract can be a powerful psychological weapon. So I to use it today to my advantage." (66)
Match 6: Chavo Guerrero, Chris Kanyon and Vampiro vs Booker T, Diamond Dallas Page and Sting. Each contestant receives an equal amount of time. Sting kicks Vampiro out of the ring, and in the ring, Booker T performs Bookend on Chavo to make a pin for three. (15:40) (74)
WCW Commissioner Dusty Rhodes welcomes us to the contract signing for a main event at Halloween Havoc. Ken Shamrock is here first. “I can guarantee Goldberg that he's never been in the ring with a fighter as dangerous as me before. At Halloween Havoc, Goldberg won't be in the ring; Goldberg will be in the Shamrock zone, where there will be a lot of pain and suffering." Ken Shamrock signs the contract. Now it's time for the WCW World Heavyweight Champion Goldberg. Dusty hands the microphone to him and offers him a chance to speak, but Goldberg pays no attention. He silently signs the contract and tosses it to Rhodes. Goldberg and Shamrock face off, and their match is only 6 days away! (88)
