Monday Nerdo War – WCW Monday Nitro – 11/06/95

Coral and Fre are comin atcha’ straight from the Driver Dome for another riveting edition of WCW Monday Nitro. Will there be a yeti? Perhaps Arn Anderson will come out to the ring during the commercial break without music. Maybe Disco will put a hat on Hawk’s shoulder pad again. Anything can happen so you better just stick with us and ignore whatever is happening on that other shit show.

“check it out, mongo. I dressed up like u today u fuckin clown.”

Fredo: There was a shot of the announce team to open, but yeah. Pepe in this outfit has me hyped as all fuck.

Carlos: Mongo wears that same outfit when he fucks.

Fredo: Bischoff is giving us the shot to pick the main event by calling some hotline that likely has dudes talking dirty to get other dudes off. So yeah, don’t call it unless your name is Jerry.

Carlos: Jerry gonna crank it to a pre-recorded message of himself cranking it to the thought of Jerry calling in to that number. Time is but a flat circle, Gerald.

Fredo: Looks like the first match is about to get under way. Let’s see what championship material WCW superstars will engage in battle for our first match.

Match#1 Cobra vs The Giant

IMG_20151213_231220
The future NWO Sting. Just making a career of being a jabroni.

Carlos: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Ah, yes.

Fredo: Word. WCW making me look straight up stupid. I was so confused for a moment because I heard beeping and I thought they were having audio issues. Nope, his theme song is morse code. What a dumb fucking idea.

Carlos: Surprised they didn’t dust this theme off and give it to Cesaro. You know, really help get that guy over. Like Cobra.

IMG_20151213_231324
Hart showing us what a southern mouf do.

Fredo: I wonder who will win this match.

Carlos: Jimmy Hart looking like a horse about to take a bite out of the healthiest dick.

IMG_20151213_231438
PeeWee like “I’m open, thrilla!”

Fredo: Mercifully, this was quick. They spent more time trying to subtly encourage people to vote for Sting vs Flair than it did for this match to end.

Carlos: Kinda surprised Cobra didn’t take Giant to the limit. Yep.

Fredo: Looks like they’re going to take us to the “red” (heel) and “blue” (babyface) locker rooms to see what our options are.

Carlos: WCW changing the game before WWF decided to get Taboo on a Tuesday.

IMG_20151213_231756
Check out Norton’s model pose. Scott “GQAF” Norton

Fredo: Yeah, word. I wonder which one of these wrestlers at this stage in their career I wanna see in a match.

Carlos: The Shark. You want Shark.

Fredo: Wait…

IMG_20151213_231844
It’s tea time, fam. Get that fucking camera out of our faces.

Fredo: Fuck. I take that back. I wanna time travel and vote for the Blue Bloods to be in this match.

Carlos: They hid them in the back to make sure they wouldn’t get every single vote possible.

IMG_20151213_232033
Johnny B Badd looking like he’s waving away a stinky-ass fart

Fredo: Damn, this locker room is stacked. Sting, Mr. JL, Alex Wright, The Nasty Boys, Dave Sullivan…

Carlos: …WHERE DID EVAD SULLIVAN COME FROM? He kinda looks like Perry Saturn and it’s freaking me out.

IMG_20151213_232128
When you show up to the party late, but you litAF and ready to go.

Fredo: No way that Duggan isn’t fucking LIT right here. Should have voted for the Blue Bloods vs Hacksaw. I’m sure he was lit enough to take them both the fuck down.

Carlos: I bet Mr. JL and DDP would’ve brought the fire.

IMG_20151213_232039
When ya a Tigers fan but they get swept in the World Series by the returning Montreal Expos.

Fredo: Sting is pissed and keeps repeating he wants Flair. I wanna get behind you my man but you dumbAF. What did you think would happen?

Carlos: Sting looks like he had a long cry before this segment. Still can’t get over Flair stabbing him in the back. Again. For the 37th time.¬†Come on, Sting, you know Flair is a lying…piece of shit…you deserve…everything you GIT.

 

IMG_20151213_232610
No Nazis in this one. Unless you count Hogan since he hates black people.

Fredo: Hyped on the WW3 promo here. I like how they really tried to one up the WWE on everything. Maybe sometimes less is more. But nah, fuck Team RAW WW3 WAS TIGHTAF!!

Carlos: I loved WW3. I mean, what’s more of a cluster fuck than 20 men in the ring at once? 60 men split into 3 different rings at the same time. Brilliant.

IMG_20151213_233115
Crackhead sings some weird song about the Hulkster while that weird white dude looks to the gods above to kill him.

Fredo: A quick shot of this crackhead with a guitar singing a song about Hogan. Why?

Carlos: How else is Hogan supposed to get over?

IMG_20151213_233153
#ASquadbup front, #posers in the back.

Fredo: Looks like Mach’ and Hogan have replaced Hart with the local drunk. They’re talking and shit, but all I hear is this crackhead playing in the background.

Carlos: Those dudes in the back are definitely DTF.

IMG_20151213_233347
The FUCK

Fredo: I’m so hyped to realize he is also on rollerblades. No way that dude is still alive. OD’d on Hogan’s vitamins or crack.

Carlos: I honestly don’t know what just happened.

Match #2: The Taskmaster vs. The Renegade 

IMG_20151213_233550
The Pudgy Red Machine

Fredo: Kevin Sullivan is coming out with his new pal Jimmy Hart. He’s not on roller blades or on crack so I don’t give a shit.

Carlos: How that dude didn’t walk away from that segment with a contract is beyond me.

IMG_20151213_233654
Racing towards oblivion.

Fredo: Let me say it is an absolute fucking pleasure to see King Jabron ’15 himself, The Renegade, in action tonight. Hyped on his straight up Ultimate Warrior entrance.

Carlos: Always a fan of the capital R’s he painted on himself each week. Real cool. Real original. Real fire.

IMG_20151213_233937
Nah, Nick Patrick.. YOU THE FUCKIN MAN.

Fredo: Renegade comes in with a flurry of really ugly clotheslines on Sullivan. Sometimes I wonder if we picked the right man as King Jabron. I can confirm we did.

Carlos: He just wanted his offense to be as Warrior-esque as possible. Ugly clotheslines? Check.

IMG_20151213_233959
When the squad jam comes on.

Fredo: Man, Renegade has no business in the ring. Sullivan basically dumped himself over the top.

Carlos: Tiger Driver ’91’s King Jabron ’15 really making us proud.

IMG_20151213_234258

IMG_20151213_234403

Fredo: This match is pretty much what you expect. Sullivan having to carry it on his old-ass back. Chops and punches and stomps from Sullivan. Awkward powerslams from Renegade.

Carlos: With all the talent they had in that locker room we got Renegade and Cobra in the first two matches. Why?

IMG_20151213_234425

IMG_20151213_234445
Jobbergade

Fredo: After missing a kick in the corner, Sullivan ties him up in a tree of woe and eventually a double stomp from the second turnbuckle for the win.

Carlos: Thank you, Taskmaster. You the real MVP.

IMG_20151213_234536
The moment when Rickagade realized he should just be dead and ascend to King Jabron.

Fredo: Damn, this is the beginning of the end of Renegade’s life. He’s rubbing the “R” paint off his face and telling him he’s no one. That he’s plain ol’ Rick. I think this is the moment he knew he was gonna suicide himself. He’s a great king.

Carlos: Hello, darkness, my old friend.

IMG_20151213_234732
When ya friends all lookin to get turnt but you a proper English gentleman and when it’s tea time it’s fucking tea time.

Fredo: Flair is cutting a promo here, but really you gotta peep Beautiful Bobby sippin dat sizzurp in the background.

Carlos: Purple drank about to make that Beautiful Bobby dick stank.

IMG_20151213_235213
Feel the hype.

Fredo: Man, just don’t even bother with RAW at this point. Nothing on there will be better than this masterpiece coming up.

Carlos: This match makes up for everything.

Fredo: Hold up, our favorite part of Nitro is coming up. Peep the Saturday Night preview right quick.

IMG_20151213_235346
This isn’t even a sanctioned match. Anderson looking to throw down with a Jap.
IMG_20151213_235355
Hair on fleek
IMG_20151213_235406
Still gonna be lit

Fredo: Saturday Night lookin…yeah.

Carlos: Arn spinebusting Kurasawa back to Japan will definitely be the highlight.

Match #3: Chris Benoit vs Eddie Guerrero

IMG_20151213_235450
Benoit looking killer.

Fredo: Man, both these dudes were part of my dead wrestler promotion in Fire Pro. Nothing to do with this match or his entrance, but I was really hyped on that promotion.

Carlos: We were waiting for wrestlers to die to build up that already sick roster. Best idea you ever had.

IMG_20151213_235528
Eddie doing his best blind-ass abuelo face.

Fredo: Eddie getting pyro this week. He’s earned it. I think.

Carlos: I guess Pittman no showed, so they had the pyro there anyway. Might as well use it, right?

IMG_20151214_000110

Fredo: Benoit attacks Eddie as he’s putting away his sick as fuck jacket and we are kicking this match off. What a prick. I definitely see Chris “The Murderer” Benoit here.

Carlos: Eddie’s your friend, Chris.

IMG_20151214_000145

IMG_20151214_000153
Benoit looking to be the new Slim Jim spokesperson with all these SNAP suplexes. I’ll be here all night.

Fredo: Benoit’s snap suplex is so vicious. I feel like he just suplexed him into November of 2005. Cuz, y’know, he’s dead.

Carlos: That suplex was next level. Like all of that offense.

IMG_20151214_000326
Yoga day.

Fredo: Benoit putting on a Liontamer here and Jericho is no where to be found yet. Jericho is known to have Benoit’s kryptonite. His kryptonite being trying to suicide dive to the outside but being met with a steel chair instead of a body.

Carlos: Ah, yes. My favorite move in Benoit’s arsenal. Suicide dive a steel chair face first.

IMG_20151214_000401
10 minutes into sake and chill and he gives you this look.
IMG_20151214_000414
Windbreaker game: untouchable.

Fredo: Man, WCW should have done an angle where New Japan was trying to take over. It would have been so fucking good. Look at all these dudes. Look at Liger’s windbreaker game. Look at it.

Carlos: I don’t know what’s blowing my mind more: Chono sippin’ some hot sake or Liger’s windbreaker game putting Arn’s on notice.

IMG_20151214_000525

IMG_20151214_000530

IMG_20151214_000534

IMG_20151214_000651

Fredo: Guerrero and Benoit are going in with the reversals and deep as fuck armdrags. These two are incapable of having a bad match.

Carlos: Shades of the game changing matches we’d have in my yard 15 years ago. Best friends. Stiffer enemies. Hour long matches ending in superkicks or lariats to the bridge of the nose.

IMG_20151214_000733
Beautiful

Fredo: I feel like there’s one of these from Eddie every match, and every single time he has the sickest air.

Carlos: The only thing missing is blatant Bobby Heenan racism. Call that a “flying burrito” or bust.

IMG_20151214_000803
Eddie as an accomplice to murder here.

Fredo: MAN. Guerrero practically dropped Benoit on his head with that brainbuster. Just really contributing to that double homicide/suicide fund for him.

Carlos: That fund overfloweth.

IMG_20151214_000840

Fredo: Benoit nails Eddie with such an intense superplex. Dude was intense in everything he did. You’d think he’d maybe take it easy on a suplex from the top. Nah, gonna try to make Eddie the real first victim.

Carlos: Benoit likes taking neck bumps even when he’s dishing out offense. Fuck it. WHAT’S THE WORST THAT CAN HAPPEN?

IMG_20151214_000916
The cure for all migraines.

Fredo: Mother of god, he almost powerbombed Guerrero out of his skin. He gives no fucks about Guerrero’s well-being. I like dat.

Carlos: That’s the most absurd powerbomb I’ve seen since the last time Benoit powerbombed the shit out of Guerrero.

IMG_20151214_001058
When your boy turnt and eats his burrito too fast

IMG_20151214_001124

Fredo: Benoit nails Eddie with a German followed by a beautiful Northern Lights with a bridge. Eddie has been getting his ass handed to him this match.

Carlos: “Imma cry when you die Eddie, but I’mma help you get there with the quickness.”

IMG_20151214_001233

IMG_20151214_001310

Fredo: Eddie foils a back suplex attempt back into the ring and turns it into a cross body with a cover for the three! Ref didn’t see his foot on the ropes. Bad luck, Benoit. It’s a foreshadowing of no one seeing that Kevin Sullivan is the man truly behind the death of you and your family. I know he is.

Carlos: I’m pretty sure Kevin Sullivan watched this match from the curtain. “He’s losing his mind…and I’m reaping all the benefits.”

IMG_20151214_001411
Evad with the tightest lime costume

Fredo: Back in the babyface locker room, Sting is cutting some promo yeah yeah whatever. Here is Dave fucking Sullivan holding a bunny rabbit you marks. WHERE YA AT RAW? WHAT YA GOT?

Carlos: Evad Sullivan > Team WWF < a bag of human shit > Lex Luger

Fredo: Bischoff announces what I could have told you from the beginning of Nitro as we have our main event and it’s coming up now!

Match #4: Sting vs Ric Flair

IMG_20151214_003626
Sting is pissedAF

Fredo: Sting is out first and he is pissed. You don’t use little Stingers to fool Sting, Ric. Ya just don’t.

Carlos: Still can’t believe Flair stabbed him in the back.

IMG_20151214_003720
Nice tan, dad.

Fredo: Flair is out and he is straight up looking like a 40 year old dad with a bad tan on the beach.

Carlos: I need to get in Flair shape.

IMG_20151214_003846

Fredo: Sting doesn’t wait long after the bell to start taking out his frustrations on Flair. This match will probably be a banger. These two are incapable of having bad matches too.

Carlos: “Y U SO MAD NIGGA I BEEN STABBIN’ YOU IN DA BACK LOL” – “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair

IMG_20151214_003905

Fredo: Loved listening to Flair talk about how this was just part of their routine. A routine that involved gorilla press slams as part of their match formula. I’m hyped on it.

Carlos: He’s fucking right. I wanna see press slams. I wanna see Stinger Splashes. I wanna see chest pounding. I wanna see chops. I wanna see Flair flops. I want dudes chuggin’ cocks. WHERE THE AMERICAN MALES AT? I’M HYPED.

IMG_20151214_003925

IMG_20151214_003956

IMG_20151214_004006

Fredo: Flair does his turnbuckle flip and gets caught with a clothesline from Sting. If you aren’t on hyped on that then you need to get the fuck out of my face.

Carlos: Man, if Flair pulled that spot out one more time on WWE programming I’d lose my mind. Then I’d openly weep because he’d likely die right there.

IMG_20151214_004103
When the whole party turnt but you got that one dude who thinks he’s above it.

Fredo: Sting gets fooled and misses a big splash onto the guard rail. That dude in the front is totally disgusted.

Carlos: Those dudes in hats are definitely DTF.

IMG_20151214_004143

IMG_20151214_004204

Fredo: Flair starts to lay into Sting with some chops and a back suplex. I’d rather take 50 back suplexes from Natch’ than one chop. Real talk.

Carlos: I’d pay good money for a chop from Flair. That’s right, I’m a fucking Flair mark. I’d let him do it at my grandmother’s funeral. I don’t give a FUCK. Come see me, idiots.

IMG_20151214_004223

IMG_20151214_004248
Straight up, this looks like softcore.

Fredo: Uhh.. WOO! Get totally psyched on Flair using the ropes for leverage ya jabronies!

Carlos: TURN AROUND, PEE WEE.

IMG_20151214_004314
When you’re in yoga class and you get that second wind.

Fredo: Sting straight up drags himself to the middle of the ring and gets pumped as fuck. Little Fredo was definitely getting so hyped you’d have to shoot a tranquilizer into his ass to calm him down. Sting is my cocaine you peons.

Carlos: The orange face paint and tights really highlighting Sting’s beautiful tan. Mmmm.

IMG_20151214_004403

IMG_20151214_004612

IMG_20151214_004635

IMG_20151214_004702

Fredo: Sting catches Flair with another gorilla before they exchange some blows and maneuvers. Sting is pretty fucking strong and has great stamina. Both dudes have been selling their asses off but they’re going strong.

Carlos: JR is…okay with all of this.

IMG_20151214_004807

IMG_20151214_004852

Fredo: Oooh shit. The dirtiest player in the game nails Stinger with some knucks. What a fucking savage.

Carlos: Flair strut til I die.

IMG_20151214_004926
Pee “Mr. Fantastic” Wee

Fredo: Sting with some savage shit of his own as he gets pumped and no sells punches and chops from Flair. It must take every ounce of his being not to show pain from a chop. Or maybe he does cocaine until he can’t feel. I don’t know.

Carlos: It looks like Pee Wee just punched through Sting’s heart. My dude’s arm is long as hell.

IMG_20151214_005002
PeeWee like I gotchu fam

Fredo: This match has been a well-paced banger. Does Flair need to take a superplex from the very top? Nah, but fuck it.

Carlos: Pee Wee trying to catch both of them. Why? True love.

IMG_20151214_005023

Fredo: Sting locks in the Scorpion Death Lock. AKA the best version of the sharpshooter done by anyone and especially better than every jabroni in the WWF.

Carlos: Not Owen, though. Team WCW does not view “The King of Harts” Owen Hart as a jabron. King of Harts. Not Jabrons.

IMG_20151214_005127
“I’M COOL MAN, I’M COOL BUT HE SHOULDN’T HAVE DISRESPECTED ME LIKE DAT”

Fredo: Sting is savage as hell right now. He won’t let go! The whole babyface locker room empties out to pry his ass off Flair.

Carlos: Sting’s best friends: Eddie Guerrero and Mr. JL.

IMG_20151214_005224
im watching u lil bitch. coke at me

Fredo: Sting is still feeling it. That betrayal gets him heated.

Carlos: You broke my heart, Ric.

IMG_20151214_005243
90% Luger free is decent enough.

Fredo: Sting runs back for more and no one can stop him apparently. Probably on PCP.

Carlos: Took a quick bump before he ran back in.

Fredo: What’s this? I thought I’d get away with no Luger tonight. Why have I been forsaken by the gods?

Carlos: WE WERE SO CLOSE.

IMG_20151214_005307
Sting and Luger about to bust into their best rendition of Dirty Dancing

Fredo: Luger whispers something mysterious into Sting’s ear and he drops the hold. What could he have possibly said? Probably promised him some Somas in the back.

Carlos: “I’ll step in front of a train if you let go.”

IMG_20151214_005352
Giant looking Taskmaster like he’s about to drop some wisdom upon him.

Fredo: We have that great main event, but nah let’s end Nitro with a segment. Fine.

Carlos: Gotta advance Hogan’s storyline even if he is hanging out with Macho Man and a rollerblading, guitar shredding, crackhead.

Fredo: Apparently Jimmy Hart had power of attorney for Hogan. The contract with the Giant stipulates that if Hogan lost by DQ, he’d lose the title. Say hello to your new champ! Or wait..

IMG_20151214_005701
That look when your boy takes the last Oreo out if the pack you bought and you only had one.

Fredo: Good thing Gene just happens to have a WCW attorney he knows around. According to him, Bockwinkel and the WCW board decided due to the dubious nature of the title change, they would put the title up at World War 3! That’s huge! Giant looks perplexed as fuck.

Carlos: At 29, I still have no clue how the fuck this worked out.

Fredo: That’s all for this week. Tune in for next week as we will for sure have another banger for you.
