Monday Nerdo War – WCW Monday Nitro – 10/23/95

Team TD91 (Fre and Coral, naturally) are back to bring you another riveting and ultimately hilarious edition of WCW Monday Nitro!

IMG_20151129_213721
Pyro game is on fleek this week.

Fredo: Nitro is live from Huntsville, Alabama this week and Bischoff made sure to remind us this is the home for NASA HQ, followed by some shitty pun. Hopefully they strap Luger to a rocket this week so I don’t have to see him on my screen. But with our luck he’ll be the first man to survive on Mars. Dumb motherfucker.

Carlos: I wish Luger starred in The Martian. I’d want him to die in the beginning of the film and then the next 90 minutes are a shot of his body floating through space.

Fredo: No announce team pics this week, which means no pics of Mongoloid McMichael. They’re jumping right into the first match!

Match #1: “Macho Man” Randy Savage vs Kurasawa

IMG_20151129_213809
Coral said it best. He could have been the mascot for Bayside High.

Fredo: Man, Savage is looking like the pinata I beat down at my fifth birthday party.

Carlos: He looks like he’s wearing the Saved By The Bell intro.

IMG_20151129_214207
Savage reminding Kurasawa that he came out before the pyro, brother.

Fredo: Stoked that Kurasawa traveled all this way to already be in the fucking ring. They had the oddest choices for people to get the job entrances.

Carlos: As long as it makes room for an Arn Anderson entrance I’m cool.

IMG_20151129_214613
Reminding Parker that Sherri know dat dick SavageAF.

Fredo: Macho Man isn’t taking any of Parker’s shit today as he shoves him down.

Carlos: Men that have been inside Sister Sherri clash.

IMG_20151129_214647
Pee Wee looking to find out if what they say about Japanese weiners is true.

Fredo: Kurasawa isn’t going to let Savage push his white owner around.

Carlos: JESUS. My dudes kicks have zero chill.

Fredo: Savage’s arm is fucked up and they keep reminding us that he broke Hawk’s arm. Naturally he’s going to kick the shit out of savage instead. Parker is hypedAF outside.

IMG_20151129_215004
Col. Parker was probably this hyped when he found out he was going back to WWE. Probably not as hyped to be Tennessee Lee.

Fredo: Macho threw him to the outside and Kurasawa doesn’t give a fuck. Comes in and drops Savage on his back like he’s Elizabeth with a drug problem and living with Lex Luger. I mean…what?

Carlos: A very specific, but accurate, description of that maneuver.

Fredo: Man, he’s really beating the shit out of Savage, but it’s been a good match regardless of the one-sidedness.

Carlos: Savage was like Flair. Yeah, I’m probably gonna win this match, but I don’t mind getting my ass beat for a while to make things interesting.

IMG_20151129_215349
“Japanese people love baseball. Suck my dick, Savage.” – Kurasawa. Damn what a douche.

Fredo: Kurasawa baseball slides into Savage, mocking him over his failed baseball career. Really attacking Mach’ on all fronts in this match.

Carlos: Also reminding him that his brother, The Genius, can suck his own dick.

IMG_20151129_215554
The original arm collector. Come see Nakanishi, Ronda.

Fredo: Damn, Kurawa looking to Hawk Savage’s arm.

Carlos: Hawk got his hands full with Disco Inferno these days. He’s got no time to help Mach.

IMG_20151129_215732
Brutal.

Fredo: After a quick commercial break, we come back to Kuraswa slicing some roast beef off of Randy’s chest. Delish.

Carlos: Savage really letting Kurasawa push his shit in.

kick
The ring post no-sells this kick. The third member of the Brothers of Destruction.

Fredo: Finally, Savage gets some breathing room as Kurasawa decides he doesn’t like the color of that ring post. Racist Japs.

Carlos: So that’s why Lesnar headbutts posts so hard? Never made the connection.

IMG_20151129_220026
Kurasawa thinking he just made a huge mistake.

Fredo: After Kurasawa works his ass off and Savage sells for literally the whole match, he drops the elbow for the quick win over Kurasawa!

Carlos: That elbow always looks beautiful, tho.

IMG_20151129_220150
Kurasawa is bummed. That kid is about to drop the mic doe.

Fredo: Kuraswa is bummedAF that he worked so hard and lost to one move. The kid in the back is bummed he got a jap in front of him. His daddy told him don’t ever trust no chinaman. So yeah.

Carlos: That kid also looks like he’s about to drop the mixtape of the century.

IMG_20151129_220345
Pepe looking tight. Mongo looking like I wish he was dead.

Fredo: Pepe is looking tight as all FUCK. Man, I wish this team was just Pepe and Heenan. Only team to come close to Heenan and Gorilla.

Carlos: As long as you pair Heenan up with animals we are good to go.

IMG_20151129_220506
The pinnacle of WCW production.

Fredo: Oh shit, The Master making an appearance on Nitro. What’s he got up his sleeve?

Carlos: My dude always looked like he was covered in cake mix.

Fredo: Honestly, he’s shouting a bunch of inaudible fucking nonsense, but what is this?

IMG_20151129_221232
There is nothing good in that sheet of ice.

Fredo: Oh no, Coral. I know what is behind that sheet of ice. They’re saving the coup de grace for Halloween Havoc, but I’ll go ahead and save everyone’s sanity and well-being and spoil that this is the fucking Yeti. You know, the only yeti that I’ve seen LOOK LIKE A FUCKING MUMMY.

Carlos: HUG-FUCKING ON DECK. I’M HYPED.

IMG_20151129_221726
Giant is always massaging his hands during promos. Like arthritis is crippling him.

Fredo: I spoke to soon. Sullivan is here to talk about their “insurance policy.” Man, that insurance policy is about as good as the fake insurance company my dad made for his cab company that he called “Manolito’s Insurance.” I’d bet that would do more damage to Hogan than The Yeti.

Carlos: Psyched “Manolito’s Insurance” just got a shoutout on this week’s Nitro review. Fuck.

IMG_20151129_221950
Two dicks, Hogan. Match that, jabroni.

Fredo: Giant trying to suck a couple of dicks here while Kevin Sullivan holds in a fart. No relevance, just a lucky screen shot.

Carlos: He’s going in on them dicks.

Fredo: Kevin Sullivan talking about the darkness in Hogan. Years later he will expel that darkness along with anything or one that is dark in his life.

IMG_20151129_222430
That duck face savage tho.

Fredo: Gene introduces “the star of Thunder in Paradise” and out comes Hogan looking like a bouncer cast in a Police Academy movie.

Carlos: He still looks like a black dildo to me.

Fredo: Man, if we took a shot for every time he says “brother” in this promo, I’d be puking onto my own dick in seconds.

IMG_20151129_222758
Jimmy Hart admiring the fuck out of black dildomania.

Fredo: Hogan with the quickest recovery from two broken necks I’ve ever seen.

Carlos: That tough hot dog skin regenerates quickly.

Fredo: There’s dissension in the ranks. Hogan doesn’t trust Sting, Savage, or Luger. Fuck Luger. That’s all I’ve really got for that.

Carlos: Especially fuck Luger.

Fredo: Fuck yes, the Saturday Night preview. This is our bread and butter, baybay.

IMG_20151129_223227

IMG_20151129_223233

IMG_20151129_223243
Hyped.

IMG_20151129_223248

Fredo: Saturday Night looking uh…tight? Looks like the second match is about to get under way.

Carlos: Wait, what’d you say? I wasn’t listening. I was too busy staring at that pic of the American Males *-*

Match #2: Dean Malenko and Chris Benoit vs Eddie Guerrero and Mr. JL

IMG_20151129_223332
The man of 1000 holds with the man of two homcides.

Fredo: Well, this team is absolutely ridiculous. I am hyped on this match.

Carlos: I’m disgustingly aroused.

IMG_20151129_223523
Alex Wright and two jabrons.

Fredo: Looks like it was supposed to be Guerrero and Wright, but Al is injured so it’s Jerry Lynn taking the spot instead. No disrespect to Das Wunderkind, but I am far more stoked to see Mr. JL in this match.

Carlos: I don’t remember this match going down so my hype level is rising extensively.

IMG_20151129_224433
Alex Wright looking intriguedAF

Fredo: Benoit and Eddie start it off with a clinic because why the fuck not?

IMG_20151129_224701

IMG_20151129_224711

IMG_20151129_224742

Fredo: You know, usually I’ll add a funny caption to these pics, but this is all fucking business. Already in this match, Malenko and cross bodied Eddie from the ring to the outside, and Benoit suicided onto his own partner. Little did we know this would not be the last time he would suicide his partner HIYO!

Carlos: Eddie looking a whole lot like gym equipment to Benoit at that moment.

IMG_20151129_225033

Fredo: Eddie launches his own partner onto the two jabrons outside. This match isn’t even 3 minutes in and I’m fully erect.

Carlos: JR is definitely displeased.

IMG_20151129_225412

Fredo: Eddie crushes Malenko’s back with this tilt-a-whirl backbreaker. Fuck, this match is already phenomenal.

Carlos: Eddie’s tilt-a-whirl was always so sick.

IMG_20151129_225630
Norton and Shark looking like they are sharing an intense hug.

Fredo: Stoked that they cut away from this phenomenal match to show me Scott Norton cuddle with The Shark. FUCK OUTTA HERE.

Carlos: THE FEUD THE WORLD WAS BEGGING FOR. COOL.

IMG_20151129_225841

IMG_20151129_225850

Fredo: Back to the action, Benoit and Malenko are working like a well-oiled machine.

CARLOS: Dare we say like a Dean-O……Machine………O?

IMG_20151129_230054

IMG_20151129_230142
High angle back suplex. Malenko is colored impressed.

Fredo: Benoit and Malenko are laying into Lynn and heeling the fuck out of Guerrero. This shit was mind blowing in 95.

Carlos: I’m bummed this dead end gimmick kept Lynn from a legitimate run in WCW. I would’ve loved to seen him mix it up with these guys on the regular.

IMG_20151129_230424

Fredo: Benoit drives JL to the mat with a superplex but drops himself on the back of his own neck in the process. Oh, Chris. This is probably why you murdered your fam.

Carlos: Benoit always seemed to take sicker bumps than his opponents during his offense. It’s insane.

IMG_20151129_230823

Fredo: Eddie finally comes in hot and is spraying us with that Latino flavor. Yeah, his dick.

IMG_20151129_231027

Fredo: God damn, we say it every week but I miss Eddie. Dude flew around that ring like he was born to do it.

Carlos: He was so smooth. Everything looked effortless. Especially that mullet.

IMG_20151129_231114

Fredo: Wright trips up Malenko with the crutches and JL is able to roll him up tight for the win! Never trust those sneaky Krauts.

Carlos: Daaaaaaamn. Shades of Berlyn.

IMG_20151129_231321
Pillman actively pulling for the closing of the border.

Fredo: The fuck? Pillman comes out sporting the 4 fingers and attacks Guerrero from behind. Why? Who the fuck knows. LOOSE CANNON BABY THAT’S WHY.

Carlos: Dude just hates Mexicans.

Match #3: Harlem Heat vs Lex Luger & Sting

IMG_20151129_231536
Throwing up the exes because this match had Luger and is already injured.

Fredo: Sister Sheri and Harlem Heat make their way out for this main event. I feel bad that these guys have to follow the tag match we just witnessed cuz god DAMN.

Carlos: Booker T and Sting have a long night ahead of them.

IMG_20151129_231746
Sting looking hyped on his fu manchu. Luger looking hyped he will be carried through a decent match.

Fredo: Sting and Luger make their entrance. Bummed Luger is here but I’m always hyped to hear Sting’s theme song. And I guess Luger did have that great match with Sting against the Steiners.

Carlos: If you put at least 3 great workers in the ring with Luger they can make something happen. Stevie Ray is not that third worker.

IMG_20151129_231823
Your face paint sucks, you little shit. I’ll show you how it’s done. Fake-ass little Stinger. Nothing but a poser. – Fre

Fredo: This kid is also torn between his undying love for the Stinger and his burning hate for Luger.

Carlos: Sting facepaint game on point?

IMG_20151129_232435
Sting’s best Hulk impression? Nah, his best Ed Leslie impression. Eating straight ass.

Fredo: The fu manchu Sting is growing is really freaking me out. Looks like he straight up ate ass and never cleaned up.

Carlos: Now we know how he got Luger that job.

IMG_20151129_232120
Psychology is deep in this match. Really representing the relationship between whites and blacks.

Fredo: People don’t give Sting enough credit. Dude was quick as fuck and flew around that ring.

Carlos: I like how his tights kind of match Harlem Heats. I wish he turned on Luger and became their crazy white friend.

Fredo: Fuck, that would have been great.

IMG_20151129_232645
Luger survives this dropkick, but he won’t survive addiction.

Fredo: Booker T drop kicks the fuck out of Luger. Too bad he didn’t dropkick him off this planet.

Carlos: Oddly enough, that’s how my version of The Martian starring Lex Luger opens.

Fredo: This match really isn’t that bad considering what they’re following. I guess an accomplished team like Harlem Heat and having Sting as a partner will really help your case if your name is Lex Luger. Jabroni motherfucker.

IMG_20151129_233002
Peep the “total package” in the background. Fucking joke.

Fredo: Taking time out of this match to focus on the real fucking angle here. The love story between Col. Parker and Sister Sherri. Also in the background: Luger’s unimpressive peen.

Carlos: I was honestly wondering what happened to that game changing angle.

IMG_20151129_233158
Luger wondering why he couldn’t be on the Lex Express right now.

Fredo: Luger looking like he’s contemplating ending it all. Do it, Luger. Save Elizabeth you jabroni.

IMG_20151129_233331
Booker T selling far too much for Luger.

Fredo: Booker misses the Harlem Hangover and gives Luger the opportunity to hot tag Sting! Finally, something worth watching.

Carlos: OH, THANK GOD. I dozed off for a minute.

IMG_20151129_233516
Look at Book’s face. Nigga looks terrified.

Fredo: Sting hands out a couple of Stinger Splashes and sets up for a Scorpion Death Lock. The superior sharpshooter-esque maneuver unlike those jabronies up in Connecticut. Suck me intensely, Team WWF.

Carlos: Suck him immensely.

IMG_20151129_233607
“Nah.” – Stevie Ray

Fredo: Stevie Ray foils the attempt because he knew Booker was fucked the moment Sting locks it in and sends him to the outside.

IMG_20151129_234110
Like an eagle.

Fredo: Sting hits the flying clothesline while they’re distracted with an untalented jabroni for the quick win!

Carlos: Sting picked up so many wins with flying crossbodies and clotheslines.

Fredo: Kevin Sullivan and the Giant are hitting the ring. Will we finally find out who is whose side?

IMG_20151129_234245

IMG_20151129_234301

Fredo: Well, looks like they decided to deflate this mystery. Giant easily dispatches Luger and Sting with chokeslams like they’re a bunch of jobbers on Saturday Night.

IMG_20151129_234403

Fredo: Macho comes in and distracts the Giant as Hogan comes up behind him. Shit is about to go down.

Carlos: Black dildo set to kill.

IMG_20151129_234436
When ya blow game is tight on the set of Thunder in Paradise.

Fredo: Hogan has his fucking game face on. Time to party, idiots.

Carlos: Got them kikiriki eyes.

IMG_20151129_234501
One black dildo to another.

Fredo: After a few no-sells of each other’s punches and clubs, Hogan finally has Giant reeling.

IMG_20151129_234554

Fredo: Dungeon of Doom is hitting the ring, but Savage and Hogan easily send em away, but what’s this? Is the ice in the back breaking…or something?

Carlos: NO. NOT YET.

IMG_20151129_234715
The term “yeti” is open to interpretation.

Fredo: IT’S A MU– YETI!! Once again, WCW in 1995, everyone. We’ll be back next week with the Halloween Havoc fallout that will unfortunately involve this jabroni far too much.

Carlos: Uuuuuugh.
