I GET LETTERS:
I've been reading your reports for a while now but just wanted to thank you for maintaining a consistent level of brilliance. There have been so many Nitros I have watched (increasingly more and more so these days) where I come out of it feeling like the only redeeming factor will be reading your report afterward so that I might gain "perspective." Ha ha. Seriously, great stuff. Keep it up.
That was from Kim...two years ago today.
Wow, she still speaks to me!
QUICK QUOTES: AOL 47.94 (- 4.67), TWX 72.51 (- 5.29 - last year this time 60 7/8), SPLN 8 7/8 (- 43/64 - last year this time 31 13/16 - hey, why are the WrestleLine producers always crying?)
WCW logo - everything must go
Australia clips - close captioned logo
Hit the PYRO 'cause we are LIVE from the Alltel Arena in Little Rock, AR 24.10.2K and in FULL-ON COAST MODE BABY - Russo's off watching the World Series but the show must go on...the show on TNT...the show...named...WCW MONDAY NITRO!
PERFECT EVENT (with Let Us Take You Back...and Kevin Nash) v. HARRYS BRYTHYRZ - If you haven't heard, Scott Hall was released last week - with any luck, Nash will let us in on it sometime tonight. The "Last Call Hall" shirt may be an indicator. I hear that Scott Keith is gonna sue for royalties 'cause HE invented that slogan. So help me out here...the face team in this match has GOT to be...umm....who? Don and Stasiak start. Lockup, knee by Stasiak, right, right, into the ropes, knee, off the ropes with the swinging neckbreaker, mute, kick, kick, kick, into the opposite corner, boots up by Heavy D, big clothesline. Big clothesline. Big clothesline. Stasiak falls on his own and makes the tag. Hey, 6 days until Halloween Havoc - I hope we see that graphic ALL NIGHT. Lockup, to the face. In the corner, repeated head to the gut, opposite corner, clothesline, back that way, elbow up by Palumbo, Jungle kick, springboard dropkick for Ron on the apron. Stevie Ray is ACTUALLY SUCKING ON PALUMBO'S WANG RIGHT NOW. Palumbo wants the tag, but Stasiak is busy mugging to the crowd, so D recovers and gives Palumbo a surprise attack from the rear, ho ho ho. Off the ropes, clothesline. Put in the corner for Ron to attack while D talks to referee "Blind" Charles Robinson. Tag to Ron, into the corner with the head to the buckle, into the opposite corner, feet up, head scissors by Palumbo. Dropkick to D as he comes in. Palumbo with another argument for Stasiak...and Perfectshawn drops off the apron instead of tagging! Palumbo turns around...into a big clothesline from Big Ron. Into the ropes, two heads down, Palumbo with a kick to Ron, punch to Don, off the ropes, oops caught in the H Bomb. Big Ron covers - 1, 2, 3. (2:49) Nash hits the ring and has some words for Stasiak - who bumps Nash - who shoves him into the corner and threatens to unleash the right hand. Palumbo pulls him off at the last minute. Nash tries to make his eyes flash like in the opening credits, but it doesn't work. Stasiak walks off...I think. We keep watching Nash. The whole WORLD revolves around Kevin Nash. "I'll tell you something right now, fellas. Stasiak, tonight, is gonna learn a little something called tough love...from the Coach. You won't see it on Vivid Video, baby." NASH WATCHES PORN! I *KNEW* IT!

"Cops vs. Fireman" this Friday on FX's "Toughman 911!" WOW!
PAMELA PAULSHOCK stands with Mike Sanders, who accuses her of trying to make it with him, and then guarantees that Cat has no chance in hell at Halloween Havoc. For our viewing pleasure, he's booked a three round kickboxing match as well.
This portion of Monday Nitro is brought to you by Castrol Motor Oily!
GENE O. works tonight! And he welcomes out BOOKA T. He loves me, too! The past three months have been a rollercoaster ride from hell, but no matter what they've thrown at him, he's kept on keepin' on...for the fans.
It's all about the people! He's got a lot of respect for Scott
Steiner as a competitor, but as a man...he sucks. If he's said it once,
he's said it a thousand times...you've got to kill him to take the title
from around his waist. A long time ago, his daddy told him that to bring
some, get some, want some, you better be big enough and bad enough to take
some, now can u dig that. At Havoc, Steiner gets his chance, but T won't
be by himself...he's got every fan in the arena watching his back. When
it's all over with, don't hate the playa, hate the game. Hit the siren and
bring out WHITE THUNDER (with
Midajah) for a rebuttal. If I didn't
transcribe the champ, you think I'm transcribing this guy? Well, MAYBE.
"Booker T., I'm sitting and listening to you in the back talking all your
jive, and to be quite honest with you, I don't understand a word you're
saying. You come out here and say save the drama for your momma, 'cause
she don't know how much her welfare cheque is, I don't understand that.
And don't hate the player, hate my momma 'cause she works on a street
corner for $1.95 an hour, I don't understand that. So what I'm saying to
you is, I need the ebonics handbook to understand your ass! So understand
this, at Halloween Havoc, the only reason you're champ now is 'cause you've
never wrestled me - at Halloween Havoc, I guarantee I'm gonna beat your ass
- I'm gonna knock you're ass out." "You know, Scott, I know these people
wanna see it...so I think - hell with it, let's do it right now!" They
meet in the aisle and trade punches - Booker takes him to the rial -
JADOUBLEREDOUBLET is out with the Pearl Harbour
and now the
doubleteam takes charge. Back to the ring, into the ropes, double elbow,
but the lights go out and (THIS
IS) STING materialises. The locker room
(well...what's left of it)
empties to get these four apart...and then, to pull Mike Awesome off of
Steiner as well. Somehow, Stevie Ray manages to stay cool.
When we come back, it's...a replay! Special attention is paid to Awesome beating on Steiner.
Paulshock stands with Steiner and Midajah. I smell another award winning promo from the Pump! "Warmup match? Booker T, you're ass is kicked as far as you...Mike Awesome, I'm looking at a dead man! I'm gonna hit you're retro ass so f-hard, you're gonna wish you were in the seventies. Matter of fact, right now I want you to write down exactly what you're thinking. Write it down, because when I come back, I wanna know what it's like for a lamb to go to slaughter! You got that? What the lamb goes, come on Awesome, baaaaaaaaaaaa, come to slaughter, eh baaaaa, come on Awesome, your ass is mine!"

"ABOVE AVERAGE" MIKE SANDERS is out. "Lemme tell you something, Cat. Ya come out here week after week and you run your damn mouth about I'm the greatest - I'm the 40, 50, 60, 70 time world karate champion? Well lemme tell you something, Cat - you don't come from where I come from. Brother, I live on Badstreet USA - the further down the road you go, the worst it gets, and I live the last damn house on the right! So lemme tell you something, Cat, at Halloween Havoc, you're definitely gonna find out what it means to be SOL (and you know what that means). Now, for you're viewing pleasure, I've put together a little three round exhibition with some of the absolute toughest talent in WCW - so boys, it's just an ass-whuppin', so come on out." The opposition is the JUNG DRAGONS (with Leia Meow). Sanders makes a big show out of putting some sort of liquid on his gloves...behind the back of referee "Blind" William Gibson (who?).
Round one - Jamie-san ducks a punch and repeatedly strikes the head, kicks, Gibson breaks it up in the corner. There's a sixty second clock in the corner. Sanders apparently rubs Jamie's eye with his glove, and Jamie-san gets to rubbing his eyes as if blinded. Three rights and Jamie's down. Arm falls three times. That's it. (:46?) NITRO GRRL SYRYN displays a card for the next round.
Round two - Yang is the next sucker. Sanders with a windmill, but Yang sneaks in the right, hundred hands, to the corner, more punching, Sanders with a headlock and then rubbing the glove into Yang, blinding HIM. They aren't even bothering with a clock. Sanders back to the windmill with the right - and a left hook to take him down. This one's about (:31)
Round three - Kaz is in, but Sanders is trying to load up his gloves again. Syren is in but Kaz is too busy attacking - camera splits the difference and shows us NOTHING. Kaz on the offense - it's all Kaz - big kick.
Head to the buckle. To the opposite buckle, but Sanders blocks,
then runs Kaz into it - oh, I see, he's poured the whatever it was all over
that turnbuckle as well. Kaz is blinded. Two kicks from Sanders and down
goes Kaz. Gibson proclaims him out. (:51)
Now, just for fun, Leia Meow is in - kick in the nuts has no effect, other than hurting her foot. Sanders shows off his cup, puts the mysterious liquid all over it (ewww), and before he can rub it in her face, MZ. JONEZ is out. Sanders offers a free cup for HER, but she just stands there showing off Cat's cape...must mean CAT is going to sneak up from behind, Feliner, crotch chops, play his music, James Brown impersonation, replay. Let's be kind and sum it up with: This segment wasn't exactly the greatest.
Halloween Havoc promo
KRONI>| are out to ask for some beer money. "You know, this thing with Kronik versus Goldberg started out as just business, nothing personal. We were hired and being paid a lot of money for two reasons. First of all, we are the most unstoppable force in WCW. And second of all, they knew that Goldberg's huge ego wouldn't allow him to turn down a match, even against Kronik. Well things have changed, haven't they Goldberg? Yeah, this has gotten real personal. The fact is, you can take the money, you can take the winning streak, you can take your career, Goldberg, and stick it. Because at Halloween Havoc, we've got more to lose than you do. That's right, if we beat you, people will say, yeah, it was two monsters against one - we shoulda won. But Goldberg, if you win, that'll make you not only the baddest man in WCW, but undoubtedly the baddest man on the face of the planet. Now, back here in the real world, that's not gonna happen. You see, Goldberg, when the walls of reality come crashing down on you, you will then understand exactly what I'm talking about. And you will damn sure know why it's all about Kronik." "And speaking of business, I don't know how these guys got the money to hire Kronik, but they did, so 3 COUNT, come on out." Hey, THEY'RE gonna talk as well. Moore first: "Hey, cut the music! Comin' straight from a sellout concert, 3 Count's in the house for the ladies that like to love." Karagias: "And you know 3 Count's fulla love and the ladies, but we're also for dem ho's. Now tell them what's in store, Sugar Shane." Helms: "Tonight, there will be no interruptions, 'cause WCW's greatest entertainers, the Kings of Pop, 3 Count, have hired the men who at Halloween Havoc will bring the mighty Goldberg down. So for the two you know, and the one's you've yet to hear, we're going to perform them all - from now until the end of the show." Clark: "How many songs you gonna play?" "Baby, we're gonna play them all." Kronik discusses it over. Clark: "You know what, there's been a little change in plans - you guys don't have enough money for us to sit through that crap."
KRONI>| v. 3 COUNT - Where'd referee "Blind" Mark Johnson come from? There's the "NBA starts 1 November" graphic. This, friends, is 3 Count getting a PUSH. High Time, Clark covers Sugar Shane Helms. 1, 2, 3. (0:59)
When we come back, Paulshock asks Nash what he meant by tough love. "You know, Stasiak, to me, has got a lot of potential, and unlike this company, I don't
give up on people too easy. Um, if I may, uh, quote Willem
Dafoe from uh the epic film The Last Temptation of Christ, "Let
those who have not sinned cast the first stone." So, Stasiak, you're gonna
have a second chance. Now I sat down with Sanders and the rest of the
Thrillers, and I put something together tonight. I guess it's a test. And
it's real simple - tonight, either you get your head in the game, or you
leave without it. Now...(shoot pause)....since I've got a little time
here, I just want to say that I'm not in a real good mood this week. Two
days before my best friend's birthday last week, Scott Hall...he received
his, I guess, walking papers from this great company of ours. Well, WCW,
this Outsider gimmick...it ain't a work. And it's ON. Outsiders WILL run
again." Hey, Nash, remember the LAST guy to say "It's ON?" Hint: he
laughed like a hyena when Rena Mero sat in the front row

Here comes ... the SECOND FAMILY, dressed as Team Canada. The trigger happy censor actually mutes a "Rection." Rection is Storm, Cajun is...a moose. A-Wall is Duggan ("hoooooo!") and Loco is Skipper. "If I could be serious for a moment..." "Waitwaitwaitwaitwait, you're belt's upside down, man." (looking down) "Not from where I'm standing." "All right, that's good enough for me, go ahead." "Allow me to introduce Canada's greatest athletes. To my left, a hundred ounces and under, ex-Champion, Whine Time. Directly in back of me, turncoat traitor. Jigsaw Jim Jughead. And unlike the Americans, Canada has never lost a war." "Now, wait, of course we've never been in a war, eh?" "Unlike the Americans, there has never been a need for a war on drugs in Canada." "That's because all we do is drink beer - Molson, eh?" "And unlike you Americans, we have never had a political sex scandal." "Well, that's because all of our politicians are virgins." "Like myself." "USA USA USA" "Hey men, hey hey hey, why don't you chant Canada?" "'cause I can't spell Canada! Hoooooo!" A-Wall swings his ten foot long board, and they all duck. Loco is six octaves higher. "Ahhhh! I built this house, you know what I'm talkin' about? You don't want none o' whine time and my Mr. T starter kit! There ain't nooooobody tougher than whiiine time. 'cept that little girl right there. Maybe that old lady right up there. But you know who I am, whine time! I've been in the CFL - the reeeeeal football league, the Canadian Football League! I was so good, I played TWOOOOO positions - guard and tackle. I guarded the water, if someone tried to get it I tackled him!" "You're not even Canadian, Whine Time!" "Neither am I, tough guy! Hooooooooo!" "Waitwaitwaitwait - speaking of Team Canada, how come there couldn't be four members? I mean, it ain't like I could be Major Gunns, 'cause, I mean, she's with us! And since I don't have my own caribou hoof, I'm stuck bein' the big stupid Canadian moose." "Hey hey hey I thought *I* was the only big stupid Canadian moose, tough guy! Hooooooo!" "Now, if I can be serious for a minute...." Halloween Havoc graphic. Rection removes his wig. "Team Canada, you started a war that the Misfits are gonna finish! Storm - Duggan - I will take everything you Great North Geeks have to offer, and then I will take the US title! I will take Major Gunns! And in case you haven't been paying attention, we all just took your dignity. Now hit OUR music!" LISTEN TO THAT CROWD! Hey, don't get me wrong - that would have been funny...if I cared. It doesn't help when the commentators fall over themselves laughing just to let me know *funny* it is.
And Tootsie candies.
Paulshock stands with Awesome. "I'm not a sheep, and I'm not coming to any slaughter, 'cause I'm gonna kick your butt tonight!" Awesome says it's a warmup for HIS title shot next Monday. Then he says "nyah."
PERFECTSHAWN STASIAK hits the ring with KEVIN NASH, MIKE SANDERS, MARK JINDRAK & SEAN O'HAIRE right behind. "Four years and four months ago, two guys walked into World Championship Wrestling. One of 'em was me, the other one was a guy called Scott Hall. You see, Shawn, we exemplified what a team was - both shoot and work. Our success is documented in the record books. Arguably the greatest tag team of all time. What stands before you tonight is the elite - the future of this business. (NBA starts 1 November) For some reason, you don't wanna be a part of this. So tonight, young man, since you wanna be alone, tonight you STAND alone."
PERFECTSHAWN STASIAK v. COLD "11-0" BEER (entrance
Ahhhh-yup. (0:41) Nash
offers polite applause, then he and his friends
walk off. Goldberg's gonna say a few words for us. Isn't that nice? "Six
days, Kronik. Six long days. At Halloween Havoc, it's gonna be my
pleasure drivin' both your asses into the mat, 'cause that's what I do. It
always did take two of you to take down one of me. But at Havoc, you're
BOTH next." Castrol Motor Oily provides the replay of the spear,
jackhammer, and pin. Twelve and oh!
Jeff Jarrett shills Tracfone. Did I miss one of these earlier? Think I'll go back and check? OH HO HO NO

ACHTUNG ACHTUNG HIER IST ALEX WRIGHT (with Disqo and the TV-14-DL ratings box) v. MARK JINDRAK (with Sean O'Haire) v. BILLY KIDMAN (with Raymond Stereo & Tygryss) in a three-way dance - New to the Halloween Havoc card is a three-way dance for the tag team titles - Jindrak & O'Haire vs. Filthy Animals vs. Boogie Knights! "Yo yo yo, let ME speak on this! I promised a huge announcement on WCW Live, and when I make a promise, I deliver! Now me and Alex aren't going to insult the intelligence of the fans - but the question going around that could change the face of WCW forever...it's getting to the point in the locker room and in the WCW office, where people just can't ignore it anymore. The question has to be asked, and there must be an ouncer - an announcement - so tonight, I am here to announce that me and Alex are gonna get to the bottom of it. 'cause everybody wants to know...who let the dogs out and where're they at? That's right. We're starting our investigation right here in Little Rock, Arkansas. If you, or someone you know let the dogs out, PLEASE feel free to step forward and tell us. And if you know where the dogs are at, or how many dogs there are, please let us know, because there's a lot of jerks driving around Little Rock and we don't want the dogs getting hit by a car. So tonight, me and Alex are getting to the bottom of this mystery once and for all, so we would like to thank you for your cooperation in this matter." Konnan takes on Franchise later tonight, thus he isn't out now. Kidman ducks a double clothesline and dropkicks Jindrak. Wright heelkicks Jindrak. Wright holding him for a knife-edge chop by Kidman, a slap, kick, forearm, now Kidman holds him for Wright to chop him. Into the ropes, two heads down, Jindrak kicks Kidman, Wright tries a clothesline, but Jindrak ducks, and Wright takes out Kidman instead. Wright is happy to team with either of them. Double stompdown on Kidman. Into the ropes, pushing him up, but Kidman dropkicks Wright on his way down. Jindrak with a tilt-a-whirl slam on Kidman. Wright with a German suplex on Jindrak - Kidman sweeps the leg to break it up. Punching away on Wright - on the second rope - up for a Ten Punch Count Along but Jindrak sneaks up from behind, fireman's carry, into an Argentinian neckbreaker. Wright with the missile dropkick on Jindrak - isn't that his move? I guess not, Jindrak kicks out at 2. Wright tries a baseball slide dropkick to O'Haire on the outside, but O'Haire slaps it away - but he doesn't see Kidman behind him with the same move! Mysterio over on Wright. It's all breaking down on the outside. Disqo on Mysterio. Jindrak & O'Haire with their trademarked Unlikely Beal from the floor over the top rope on Kidman. Jindrak covers, Wright saves. European forearm, clothesline over the top rope - O'Haire on the apron, Wright distracted right hand, Kidman with the Tomokaze, and it's over. 1, 2, 3. (2:26) Pier Six brawl quickly ensues in the middle of the ring. I will DIE if I don't get to hear somebody say "Faceful o' stuff" before this segment ends. Ohhh...guess I was lying about dying. Animals pose in the middle of the ring, alone, as we go out.
Jeff Jarrett is in control - with his Tracfone
Paulshock stands with Crowbar, who says that he's polishing his
staff. His main man Mike Awesome has totally changed his life. Jimmy Hart

CROWBAR v. JOBBIN' VAMPIRO - Hey, look who's back. He's wielding a pair of 'chuks in one hand and he's got something else in his back pocket. Daring Crowbar to come out and meet him - Crowbar content to drop elbows on the mat. Here he comes - stick shot! WHACK! WHACK! Tony says "Lethal Weapon" - I oughta KICK HIS ASS RIGHT NOW. NBA starts 1 November! Crowbar fires back. Right, Vampiro right, Crowbar, Vampiro, Vampiro, Vampiro. Head to the mat. Crowbar kicks, Vampiro catches the next one and there's a low blow. Crowbar put into the railing. Vampiro with a right. Crowbar fires back - Vampiro into the railing. Vampiro rolled in the ring, but he meets him with rights as he comes in. Vampiro still pounding away with rights and elbows. Crowbar with a chop. Vampiro right, Crowbar chop. Repeat. Crowbar chops again, chop, catching the kick, Vampiro with a reverse mule kick. Side headlock...Vampiro crotches him on the top rope. Chop, chop, Vampiro falls to the apron...to the floor. Crowbar with a dropkick through the ropes. Crowbar back out - taking him to the rail. Clothesline out on the floor. Crowbar up on the apron...THERE'S THE SPLASH! Crowbar opening up every orifice in Vampiro's face - yikes. Bulldog onto the chair. Commentators are playing some sort of game to see who can say "fired up" the most - I wish *they'd* get fired up....oops, I mean just plain fired. Crowbar right, right - front suplex onto the STEEL steps!! Crowbar resets the steps, then walks over and AGAIN he's clawing the eyes. Whip into the rail - Vampiro's gimpin'.
But he manages
to put up a boot to stop Crowbar's run. Crowbar has a chair...Vampiro runs
up the steps and leaps off, colliding with the chair and Crowbar! Referee
"Blind" Charles Robinson must have simply forgotten what comes after "9,"
'cause he's outside asking them to please get this back in the ring. Or at
least TRY to. Sure enough, Crowbar put back in the ring, and Vampiro
follows...with a chair. Crowbar with a death suplex. Outside...over the
top rope with a splash. Crowbar motioning to the turnbuckles...and
clmibing up...but Vampiro meets him there with a punch. Climbing to the
top as well - overhead belly-to-belly superplex! Vampiro with the
chair...WHACK. Crowbar gets up! WHACK. He gets up! Vampiro on the
bottom rope...poised on the second rope - here, catch this chair. Trying
to go up, but Vampiro muscles him down. Van Daminator...but Crowbar's foot
is on the bottom rope. Vampiro on the second rope...Crowbar pops over and
kicks him down. Kick, kick, Frankensteiner (!), Crowbar with a chairshot
of his own. Crowbar places the chair on Vampiro's face and body - outside
in with a somersault legdrop! Vampiro goes outside...and Crowbar follows -
double sledge. Up the aisle they go - chop, right, Vampiro right,
headbutt, right, Crowbar right, right, right, Vampiro right, right. Now to
the DJ RAN position...on an elevated stage. Crowbar whipped into a cage.
Crowbar manages to run Vampiro into the opposite bookend. Meanwhile, TWO
DRUIDS have brought out a double table stack alongside them. Crowbar
slamming a cage door on Vampiro's head - and trying to sandwich his head in
that door as well. Setting up for a vertical suplex back through the
tables...but the men in black hoods hold his ankles. Crowbar tries to kick
them away - turns back and finds himself on the wrong end of a TONGAN DEATH
GRIP - well, I think - anyway, there's a uranage through the double stack.
Robinson *finally* calls for the bell. (relaxed DQ 9:50) Vampiro
down and listens...or is he telling him that HE OWES HIM? Well, he's got a
mic now. "Hell yeah. Ya see, it's simple mathematics. Mike Awesome, this
is all because o' you. His blood is on your hands. And you wanna know why?
Play the tape now." Let Us Take You Back to Nitro 18 September, when
Awesome powerbombed Vampiro through a table on the floor, injuring
his...spleen, or something. "Ya, big man got caught up in the heat of the
moment. Ya see, Mike, I've had two months to think about that, and my sick
brain, plotting every day, how much you tried to hurt me. Well let me tell
you something, Mike, Mr. Mike Awesome, this ain't business, this is
personal, this is what I do best, and in six days, tough guy, Mr. Seventies
Man, at Halloween Havoc, I want you to think about it - was it worth it?
Was it worth it trying to be the big shot? I live for this kinda stuff,
Mike. And your ass is mine, six days, Las Vegas, be there...or be square."
We look back to see the stretcher being prepared for Crowbar.

KARLOS (with Tygryss & Let Us Take You Back One Week) v. FRANCHISE (with Torrie Samuda) - Of course, Konnan asks who let the dogs out. Then he asks Disqo where his talent's at. Franchise is out with his arm in a sling. "Konnan, now you know the matchmakers had you and I set to tear this house down tonight, but unfortunately I've sustained an injury last week that would put most men out of this sport. Hey! You don't have to take my word for it - Torrie, tell 'em." "You know, what's wrong with you people? You have a hard working, dignified respected man trying to plead his case, and you don't believe him? You people are disgusting!" "Konnan all week long, you know what it's like to look at a woman like Torrie Wilson, as she shakes like a leaf? All week long she's heavily medicated, because she's been a nervous wreck with her man being injured." "Wait a minute...the only thing - the reason she's got a look on her face like that is because you haven't been serving her right. Now, uh...by the way, Torrie, you look like you need a facial." "Hey, now let's keep this on a
level here, Carlos. Now you know one thing about the Franchise, people can
say a lotta things about me, but one thing they can't say is I don't have
the guts to fight, 'cause on any given night I have the guts, but tonight I
don't have the tools." "Look, don't be crying and complaining about what
you have, what you don't have, as far as I'm concerned, just like her,
you're just a big bitch." "You don't think I'm man enough, Carlos?" "NO I
DON'T! You're not man enough! Now for a man that's supposed to be hurt,
you sure are getting a little jumpy, aren'cha Shane? Now I went in the
back and I asked the coach if your injury was legitimate - he said it was,
so you know what, I'll see your ass at Halloween Havoc." Shane decides to
remove the sling and try to punk him out anyway...that doesn't work. Into
the ropes, drop toehold by Konnan. "My balls are big" pants shake. Stomp,
stomp, stomp, stomp, swipe at Torrie. 6 days away graphic. Stomp, stomp,
stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, referee "Blind" Billy Silverman pulls
him off. Several of those stomps were right on the bandaged elbow, by the
way. Awkward legsweep takeover...yikes, that's some kinda stretch there.
Version of the plum stretch by Konnan? I'm stymied. Franchise taps out
with his foot but Silverman isn't watching. Konnan lets go - right, into
the ropes, tumblin' clothesline. Franchise rolls outside and collapses on
the floor. Konnan out, taking the bandaged arm to the STEEL steps. Back
in the ring - Konnan with an armbreaker on the bandaged arm using the top
rope. Silverman pulls him off...and behind his back, Torrie produces the
chain from her cleavage. Franchise with a wrapped fist - Torrie up on the
apron, distracting Silverman. Franchise with a gutshot and loaded left,
another left to the back of the head. Franchiser. Leg is hooked - 1, 2, 3.
takes Torrie down out on the floor. Stomp, stomp.
Franchise is out to save her. Tygress wants some in the ring, but before
Franchise enters, BILLY KIDMAN &
RAYMOND STEREO slide in. Franchise
decides discretion is the better part of something or other, and walks
WHITE THUNDER (with Midajah & a tiger & two tiger handlers) v. THAT 70'S MULLET - Commentators express their condolences on Yokozuna's passing...whoa. Stevie Ray sees the tiger and makes a "Daktari" reference. My head's spinning. Dammit, Steiner's gonna speak again. "Booker T - I'm no preacher man, and I'm no prophet. I don't have a crystal ball, and I can't foresee the future, but at Halloween Havoc, you can't bet your ass I'm gonna beat your bald punk ass up. (That's right, boy!)" Hmm, Awesome's coming out, but Booker T's video is on the Nitrovision... Ahh, before the match starts, the music changes...and BOOKA T. comes out. Steiner is ready to go meet Booker in the aisle - but Awesome is up behind HIM with a forearm, and the match starts. Pound, right, into the safety rail. Head to the apron. Steiner rolled back in - Awesome with a springboard splash back in - 1, 2, no. Right, right, legdrop, 1, 2, no. Scoop...and a slam. Stomp. Awesome going up top - frog splash! 1, 2, kickout! Halloween Havoc is 6 days away, thanks. Into the ropes, reversed, Midajah grabs the ankle, forearm to the back by Steiner, atomic drop. Midajah comes in and kicks Awesome outside. Steiner outside as well - to the safety rail. Chairshot. Awesome rolled back in the ring, Steiner follows. Into the ropes, Steinerline. Kiss the bicep, drop the elbow. 1, 2, no. Steiner argues the count with referee "Blind" Mark Johnson. Blockbuster suplex. Pushups. Steiner says "son of a bitch" Booker's way but the mute is late. Stomp, stomp, in the corner, kick, kick, right, right, chop, chop, Steiner on the second rope - right, right, belly-to-belly out of the corner. Awesome outside, Steiner outside, Awesome reverses a whip into the rail. Awesome with the clothesline. Awesome is in trunks tonight, huh? Back in the ring - Awesome on the second rope - Steiner up with a right. Steiner on the second rope - Awesome right, right, right, headbutting him down. Awesome off the top rope with a clothesline...for 2. Elbow to the back, waistlock - Steiner elbows out. Awesome ducks the clothesline and gets the German suplex on the second attempt. Clothesline in the corner. Signalling for the Awesomebomb...but Midajah has a hold of the ankle. Johnson over to try to get this situation rectified...and missing Steiner grabbing the lead pipe and smacking Awesome in the back. Booker T borrows "squakkin' yak" from his brother! Steiner puts Awesome on the top turnbuckle - Steiner on the second turnbuckle...got Awesome on his shoulders - SUPER SAMOAN DROP! 1, 2, NO!! Steiner threatens Johnson. Steinen Recliner...Awesome gives it up. (5:40) Quickly, we put up the credits and get out right on time.
You're watching BULL!
