The same night WCW had Goldberg vs Hollywood Hogan for the World title on Nitro, the WWE countered with a taped show from State College, PA. It wasn't the best show, but the story lines were good enough to make it an excellent show.  With the Undertaker, Stone Cold, Mankind, D-Lo Brown, Terry Funk, Vader, Bradshaw, Val Venis, Dustin Runnels, D-Generation X, Ken Shamrock, Savio Vega, Road Warrior Hawk and Mabel, it had plenty of star power. But unfortunately, it has had a couple of matches from Brawl 4 All. (ugh) Conrad watches as Tony looks on for the very first time at Raw from July 6, 1998.

It's WCW at its very worst! Welcome to the Great American Bash 2000. It was the final GAB from WCW and it was the night Goldberg turned heel and business REALLY went down the toilet. Even though there were other such big names as Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash, Scott Steiner, Rick Steiner, DDP and Sting, there was no stopping the WCW-to-Out of Business train.

All your favorites are here:  Joey Styles, Rob Van Dam, the Dudley Boyz, Shane Douglas, Raven, Tommy Dreamer, Francine, Joel Gertner, Beulah McGillicutty, Sabu, the Sandman, Tazz and Jerry Lawler! Jerry Lawler?  That's right, the King was part of a "WWE Invasion" angle during this time as the answer to the NWO on WCW. Conrad and Tony will watch two episodes of ECW Hardcore TV from June of 1997; June 10 and June 17.  It is two shows full of great action and awesome interviews.

One of the most iconic Monday Nitros ever. Loaded with talent and backstage politics, this event, from Boston was, in a nutshell what WCW was all about, and why WCW went crumbling down. The lineup was spectacular. Hulk Hogan, the Macho Man, Ric Flair, Roddy Piper, Lex Luger, DDP, Eddie Guerrero, Chris Benoit, the Steiners, Harlem Heat, Dean Malenko, Chris Jericho, a six man cruiserweight event...and more! But as Conrad and Tony explain, there was plenty of behind-the-scenes turmoil that hastened the demise of WCW and muddled up the finish of the main event. Oh, and look up in the rafters: IT'S STINNNNNGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!
Here's the link on Impact Plus for the watch-a-long: https://www.impactplus.tv/details/_6003449127001 It's the first edition ever of IMPACT as it aired on FSN on June of 2004.  With such established stars as Shane Douglas, Dusty Rhodes and Jeff Jarrett, the show had plenty of star power.  And with such performers as Elix Skipper, Amazing Red, AJ Styles, Kid Cash, Frankie Kazarian, Bobby Roode and Abyss, the future looked bright for the promotion. Well, 16 years later, the promotion is still in business.  And that actually says a lot.   Join Conrad and Tony as they go back and watch the very first TNA IMPACT and the impact it had on pro wrestling.
Note: The link to watch along this TNA Show on Impact Plus is: https://impactplus.tv/details/_6003448649001 In January 29, 2003, Tony Schiavone made his first and only appearance in TNA. He arrived on the wishes of his friend, Vince Russo, and turned heel on Mike Tenay. It was a show loaded with talent: AJ Styles, the Rock and Roll Express, Raven, Jeff Jarrett, Amazing Red, Larry Zbyszko, Chris Harris, James Storm, Sonny Siaki, Jerry Lynn, David Flair and Kid Kash. After the show, Schiavone left the business and was not heard from again until Conrad Thompson came into his life in 2017. Listen in as Tony watches the entire show for the very first time and tells Conrad the reasons why he walked away from the business and went another direction in his career.
This episode of Nitro was known as the funeral for Ric Flair, but it was also a funeral for WCW. The promotion was certainly a "Coffin on Roller Skates" at this point in its history.   Actually, it was chocked full of WCW stars, but there was just TOO MUCH GOING ON. You needed a scorecard and Ritalin just to keep up with everything. From a lovers spat between Billy Kidman and Torrie, to Booker T. getting fired, to the funeral, to the Norman and Ralphus car wash, to Terry Funk's non-announcement, to Kanyon's injury...whew! Were there matches scheduled? Uh, we think so. Hogan, Scott Steiner, Vampiro, Kevin Nash and Jeff Jarrett and more were scheduled to be in action. Did they actually have matches? We can't remember.  Enjoy some of the bitter end of WCW: Nitro May 22, 2000.
If you were looking for a bad show to watch-along with Conrad and Tony then this is not it. This is actually one of the better wrestling show you will see. Featuring HHH against Ric Flair in a match and storyline that weaved nicely through the show. Plus, a great performance by Stone Cold Steve Austin on the mic helps make this an unforgettable event. Also featuring Chris Jericho, Kevin Nash, Christian, RVD, Eric Bischoff, Goldberg, Lance Storm, Scott Steiner, Shawn Michaels, Kane, Test, the Dudleys, Spike Dudley, Rodney Mack, Teddy Long, Stacy Keibler, and La Resistance. This is a show we know you are going to love to remember.

Conrad and Tony take you back to the Marietta (GA) Civic Center to May 3, 1998 and one of the most panned ECW Pay Per View broadcasts ever. From Bam Bam Bigelow having to work with New Jack, who had knocked himself out cold, to the terrible stunt show from Sabu and RVD, to the messed up finish between Al Snow and Shane Douglas, this one was a stinker. But at least there were the likes of Francine, Taz (a cameo only), Tommy Dreamer, Chris Candido, Lance Storm and Justin Credible. Other than that this one was a May to Forget for ECW.

It was 2006 and Vince McMahon ruled the (wrestling) world. What else was he was he to do? Enter the grand idea of winning a tag match against God. Yes, this will go down as one of the most absurd event ever cooked up by the the WWE, but hey, no competition and a group of lousy writers, why not give it a shot. So enjoy Mr. McMahon feeding loaves of bread and fish to the masses, changing water into wine and fondling Candice Michelle (really bad). And while you are at it, enjoy Big Show against Kane with a bizarre ending. Oh, also there is a very, very good three way match for the WWE title between HHH, Edge and John Cena. A show that was apply named. There was plenty of Backlash for this one.

The momentum was starting to turn in the Monday Night Wars and this WM was a perfect indication as to why.  DX and the "Attitude Era" was just getting started and Stone Cold Steve Austin would finally become the champ, leading to one of most unprecedented runs in WWE(F) history.  But wait!  There's more!  The Undertaker, Kane, a banged up an injured but hard working Shawn Michaels, the Rock, Ken Shamrock, Mike Tyson, Pete Rose, Bad Ass Billy Gunn, Road Dogg, Triple H, Cactus Jack, Terry Funk, LOD, Sunny, Chyna...wow! Enjoy a very good WrestleMania.  Hell, a great WrestleMania...WHW style.  Support us on Patreon, get this show early and ad free, plus TONS of BONUS content: patreon.com/WHWMonday Like us on Facebook: facebook.com/WHWMonday Check out all the new cool merchandise at BoxOfGimmicks.com Buy a shirt and Tony will call you (eventually!) at LoisRules.com Subscribe to our YouTube channel: youtube.com/whw Save thousands at Savewithconrad.com
Certainly a pay per view featuring Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Sting, Lex Luger and Sid Vicious has to be good, right?  Wrong.  The year 2000 was one to forget for WCW as in about a year the company would go "belly up."  But still, you're invited to join Conrad and Tony for a look at a Bullrope Match, a Yappapi Indian Strap Match and the worst Lumberjack Match ever to take place in pro wrestling. Yes, WCW was in full "Coffin On Rollerskates" mode on March 19, 2000.

ECW was on the decline and not too far away from being swallowed up by big bad WWE. As usual, the gang pulled out all the stops in this one, including a horrible injury to New Jack. But even the work of Mike Awesome, Masato Tanaka, Tommy Dreamer, Raven, Justin Credible, Steve Corino and even the American Dream Dusty Rhodes could not pull this one up by the bootstraps.  Enjoy the third and final ECW Living Dangerously and without Taz, RVD (except a run in at the end), and Shane Douglas something seemed off. And, as Tony would say, we did not even get a camera shot of Francine!!!

A large crowd gathered in Milwaukee in March of 2017 for a WWE event that received less-than-positive reviews.  However, upon second look, the show was actually pretty good.  It featured Samoa Joe, Sami Zayne, Cesaro, Braun Strowman, Charlotte Flair against Bailey, Goldberg vs Kevin Owens (all 22 seconds worth) and a classic match between The Bastard Pac (then known as Neville) and Jack Gallagher.

Love that no one even knew what to call him and that Tony was even trying to find out as he was walking down the ramp. Interesting to find out that some veterans didn't want to put him over. Can't believe he used the jackhammer in the first match and still does it.
