136: WCW Monday Nitro 08-23-1999

8/21/2019
More
It's the "Kiss Nitro" with the debut of The Kiss Demon...but...he's not on this show. That's right, the WWE apparently could not use the likeness and music of Kiss, so it was edited out. But does that stop Tony and Conrad? No! We still will go back to bring you Tony's memories of the event including what happened when Ace Frehley was mistaken backstage by Doug Dellinger. Plus, there is plenty of wrestling including Hogan against Sting and a parade of chokeslams from Sid Vicious. Get ready...

135: WCW New Blood Rising 2000

8/14/2019
More
WITHOUT QUESTION, WCW was a coffin on roller skates in 2000 and as one of the worst Pay Per Views ever, New Blood Rising hit maybe a low watermark. Has there ever been a WCW event with so many matches rated as duds? It was so bad that the mud wrestling match between Major Gunns and Ms. Hancock was probably one of the best matches on the card. Not to be outdone, there was Judy Bagwell on a forklift, Evan Karagias and a whole slew of clusterf***s. A sad time in WCW and a look back from your...

134: WCW Road Wild 1998

8/7/2019
More
From the Black Hills of South Dakota comes the Eric Bischoff vanity project! It's Jay Leno, Kevin Eubanks, Hulk Hogan, Goldberg, the NWO Black and White and the NWO Wolfpack. Plus, Chris Jericho, Juventud Guerrera, Stevie Ray, Chavo Guerrero, The Dancing Fools and a lot of foolishness! One of the worst WCW Pay Per Views EVER and it was one of those events that hastened the demise of WCW. You ready to be a biker, gang? (get it)? Then great ready for Road Wild from Sturgis. See Tony and Conrad...

133: Clash of the Champions XXXI 08-06-95

7/31/2019
More
We take you back to when the Clash of the Champions was...BAD. Here we have Vader against Flair and Arn, the Renegade against Paul Orndorff, Sister Sherri getting a bump on the head and falling in love with Col. Robert Park and...wait for it...Hulk Hogan entering the Dungeon of Doom. WTF? So enjoy the Clash, one year before the birth of the NWO from the exact same arena in Daytona Beach. AN IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT THE WATCH-ALONG WWE has revamped their Network. So the show is kind of difficult...

132: Great American Bash '89

7/24/2019
More
It's one of WHW's most requested shows. The 1989 Great American Bash featuring Ric Flair against Terry Funk, Ricky Steamboat versus Lex Luger, a War Games Match, Sting squaring off with the Great Muta, Paul E. against Jim Cornette in a Tuxedo Match and plenty more. It was fun with plenty of action and plenty to talk about. We take you back, once again, to the Jim Herd era of WCW. The Great American Bash 1989!!!! See Tony and Conrad LIVE in Wayne, NJ on September 28th, 2019. For tickets and...

131: WCW Bash at the Beach 1997

7/17/2019
More
Nine matches from the heyday of WCW; the year of 1997. It was one year removed from Hulk Hogan becoming "Hollywood" Hogan and the NWO was in full force. Do you remember? Some matches were good, and some bad; however, no one could argue against the facet that Dennis Rodman was pretty darn good in the main event with Hogan against Lex Luger and the Giant. Plus, Kevin Sullivan against Chris Benoit, Ultimo Dragon versus Chris Jericho, the Steiners meeting Chono and the Great Muta and Scott Hall...

130: The Great American Bash 1992

7/10/2019

Do you like when wrestling was REAL? Did you like the Bill Watts era of WCW? Well, you going to love this one. A show loaded with talent: Steve Austin, Rick Rude, MADUSA!!! Also, Terry Gordy, Dr. Death Steve Williams, Barry Windham, Dustin Rhodes and many, many others. The bulk of the program is a tournament for the World Tag Team Title, but there is also a great match featuring Sting against Vader for the title. Conrad and Tony go into the wayback machine and pull out the Great American...

129: Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling 07-07-1984

7/5/2019
More
Tony and Conrad take you back to when wrestling on television was RAW...and we are not talking about the three hour WWE show. They take you back to Jim Crockett Promotions flagship show: Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling. The company had just aired its first Starrcade the November before and were about a year away from their first ever show on TBS. From the dark arena, to the off center "hard camera," there was nothing quite like a JCP show. The territories in pro wrestling were coming to...

JR! Missy Hyatt! The Steiners beating guys up! Paul E. and Terry Funk! Ricky Steamboat Flyin' Brian, Ric Flair and much more. What was there not to like about the Turner product in 1989 (Well, okay the management). But in the ring they were doing some great things. Conrad and Tony take you back to the summer of 1989 where life was simple and the wrestling was awesome.

127: WCW Monday Nitro 06-28-1999

6/26/2019
More
Coming to you from Jimmy Famous Seafood in Baltimore, this is a story of how WCW began "talking" itself out of a good wrestling show. The wrestling was pretty good, but the talk...talk...talk actually ran this show into the ground. It was live from the United Center in Chicago and it featured David Flair getting his shot at WCW World Champion Kevin Nash. Tony, Conrad and special guest Casio Kid wrap up a very long weekend of live shows in St. Louis and Baltimore with a look back and another...

126: Monday Nitro 06-30-1997

6/19/2019
More
Honestly, was there anything better that WCW Monday Nitro in 1997? Wait...don't answer that! Yes, the show had its ups and downs, but there is no denying the amount of wrestling talent that was on display every Monday LIVE on TNT. From Hogan, Flair, Savage, Sting, Luger, the Giant, DDP, Eddie Guerrero, Dean Malenko, Chris Jericho, Hall, Nash, X-Pac, Konnan, Chono...WOW! Conrad and Tony take you back for a very unorthodox look at a version of Monday Nitro that you may never forget! See Tony...

125: Clash of the Champions VII-Guts and Glory

6/12/2019
More
What Happened When takes you back to June 14, 1989 in Fort Bragg, North Carolina. The temperature in the building was incredibly hot and the wrestling...well...got slower and slower as the searing heat baked the participants and crowd. Many left before the end of the show and missed a pretty good bout between Ricky Steamboat and Terry Funk. It was kind of a shitty finish, but still a good match. But the crowd, made up of mostly military, was hot for the Freebirds, the Midnight Express, Sting...

124: WCW Spring Stampede 1998

6/5/2019
More
On April 19, 1998, World Championship Wrestling took it's traveling circus to Denver for Spring Stampede. And even though it was well received among wrestling fans at the time, it was still in the wake of the "Starrcade debacle" and the juggernaut they created was starting to show some "wear and tear." It's Hogan and Nash against Roddy Piper and the Giant in a "baseball bat on a pole match;" Raven against Diamond Dallas Page in a Raven's Rules match for the US Title and Sting vs the Macho...

122: WrestleWar 1989, Music City Showdown

5/22/2019
More
It's the final match of the great trilogy between Ric Flair and Ricky Steamboat. Was it the best match of the three? That is still being debated, but it was the beginning of a great angle between Flair and Terry Funk. Plus Sting against the Iron Sheik (Fuck the Stink, I tell you!), the Road Warriors, the Dynamic Dudes and plenty more. Great ready for an entertaining two hours of WrestleWar '89, Music City Showdown as only Conrad and Tony can do... Support us on Patreon, get this show early...

121: ECW Guilty as Charged 2001

5/15/2019
More
Join Conrad and Tony for a look at the last ECW Pay Per View. It was turbulent time in wrestling, with the Monday Night Wars nearing an end, and ECW having financial troubles. The final ECW Pay Per View went out with a bang as Jerry Lynn and Rob Van Dam collided for a memorable impromptu match as well as Tommy Dreamer and C.W. Anderson in a bloody "I Quit Match." Yes, we know the WWE would later have an ECW Pay Per View. But really? Who were they trying to fool? This is the REAL ECW, ECW,...

5/8/2019
More
1985 was a magical year for Jim Crockett Promotions. Their promotion debuted on TBS in early April, and by the end of the year, they were headed to their third Starrcade loaded with such talented superstars as Ric Flair, Dusty Rhodes, Ivan and Nikita Koloff, the Rock and Roll Express, Arn and Ole Anderson and the Midnight Express with Jim Cornette. But as they headed to Starrcade '85, much of the attention was on the storyline between two phenomenal athletes: Tully Blanchard and Magnum TA....

119: Tony's Vegas Vacation

5/1/2019
More
What started out as a great idea...well...did not turn out too well at all for Tony. He, Conrad and Dave Silva were going to spend a few days in Las Vegas to prepare for Starrcast II. Tony thought it would be a good idea for a vacation. Conrad had a better idea: do the podcast while they were in Vegas! Tony was trapped in a board room at Caesars' Palace with no vacation in site.

What has the debut of Oz, the debut of Johnny B. Badd, the debut of the forerunner of Razor Ramon, Brad Armstrong dressed up as a bird, bears pissing on the ramp way, and Missy Hyatt being spanked by Stan Hansen all rolled into one? Well, it's the very first SuperBrawl! It happened in 1991 and also had some GREAT wrestling action including Sting and Lex Luger against the Steiners, Bobby Eaton versus Arn Anderson and Ric Flair meeting Tatsumi Fujinami. Conrad and Tony take you back to the...

117: WCW Monday Nitro REBOOT 04-10-2000

4/17/2019
More
After a week of replays and clips, WCW Monday Nitro went back on the air live on April 10, 2000 to "reboot" the program. It was a new direction of the company under both Eric Bischoff and Vince Russo. It was an attempt to cross fiction and storylines with real life. But now, looking back 19 years later, what actually transpired was muddled and confusing and helped WCW quickly down the path of no-return. Join Conrad and Tony for a look back at what seemed like a good idea at the time, but...
