Monday Nerdo War – WCW Monday Nitro – 12/11/95

A blizzard has come and gone, but the one constant you can count on is another riveting installment of the Nitro review brought to you by OG TD91. This edition is coming red hot from Horseman country in Charlotte, NC. Let’s get it going!

IMG_20160124_183435
“rob halford a fgt but Pepe straight nut in ya girl’s mouf.” -Pepe

Fredo: Hyped that Pepe is straight up hellbent for leather. Except for all the parts where he’d suck dick I guess.

Carlos: If Pepe sucked a dick it’d be for his pleasure. He’d bite it off the dude and spit it in his face after. Pepe ain’t gay. He’s a sexual deviant.

Fredo: The hell? A bell rang inside the ring. Did they just already-in-the-ring both competitors?

Match #1: Mr. JL vs Eddie Guerrero

IMG_20160124_183532
Already in the ring: two jabrons

Fredo: Yes, yes they did. Nitro has some really odd choices and timing for doing this to people.

Carlos: O WORD? WHO ARE YOU TO ALREADY-IN-THE-RING A LEGEND LIKE MR. JL?

IMG_20160124_185116

IMG_20160124_185154

Fredo: Right off the bat, Eddie does a beautiful moonsault over JL and hits him with a text book tilt-a-whirl back breaker. Everything is so crisp and natural from Eddie. Why couldn’t they have taken Maven instead?

Carlos: Bummed they didn’t let Jerry Lynn just do his thing in WCW. This Mr. JL deal was…man, I don’t even know. No one cared. I still don’t even know what the fuck Mr. JL was? A Businessman from the future? A hitman that loved Prince’s color choices? Man, I don’t know.

IMG_20160124_185234

Fredo: VINTAGE Eddie with the senton on JL. So far, Eddie is dominating this match.

Carlos: Did anyone have a more beautiful senton? Besides that hardbody Jap that murdered Cheeseburger in the WK10 battle royal.

IMG_20160124_185427

IMG_20160124_185438

Fredo: JL finally mounting some offense with a beautiful arm drag on Eddie and eventually catching him with a whirling head-scissor take-down. Jerry Lynn is just another dude in a long line of people WCW could have really done something with.

Carlos: WWE didn’t do shit with him either. Their light heavyweight division was hot caca. They had such great talent, too. Like…Grandmaster Sexay.

IMG_20160124_185507
Some Peter Pan shit.

IMG_20160124_185527

Fredo: Eddie has some serious hang-time with JL’s arm  before he comes down with the arm drag. That was ridiculously impressive.

Carlos: Got Pee Wee so hyped he’s about to pop Mr. JL in the mush.

IMG_20160124_185544

IMG_20160124_185617
That face you make when the peanut butter stuck to the roof of your mouth but ya can’t reach.
IMG_20160124_185627
Check out the mom in the pink sweater. Hyped.

Fredo: JL eventually counters and places Eddie on the top turnbuckle before springing off the second rope and drop kicking Guerrero to the outside. These guys are putting on a show and I bet this doesn’t last another 2 minutes.

Carlos: Front row mom looking to catch that chimichanga in her mouth.

IMG_20160124_185646

Fredo: JL slams Eddie down with the somersault dive from the apron to the floor. Gonna make sure they steal this entire show in five minutes.

Carlos: Bummed they haven’t cut to the back mid-match so Hogan can shit talk The Giant. Again. What the people desire.

IMG_20160124_185759

Fredo: JL maintains control inside the ring with a vertical suplex.

Carlos: Now I kinda just wanna watch that RVD/Lynn series from ECW. A lot of pain, usually for Jerry Lynn.

IMG_20160124_185827

IMG_20160124_185840

IMG_20160124_185908

Fredo: After a series of exchanges and near falls, Eddie finally scores the quick pin! Great match between these two. Should have given them 15 minutes to blow my fucking mind.

Carlos: These guys only need 5 minutes to completely shit on everything going on over at Raw.

IMG_20160124_191434
Jimmy Hart, Gene, and some mark.

Fredo: Mean Gene is out with Jimmy Hart and Lex. They’re plugging the triangle match for the world title where the winner between Sting, Luger, and Flair will face Savage for the title. Luger cuts an awful promo teasing that Sting and him are in cahoots. I don’t have much to say other than I wish someone would put a pin in Luger’s bicep and deflate this fucking jabroni.

Carlos: WHY DOES LUGER KEEP GETTING SHOTS AT THE TITLE? THEY FUCKING TURNED HIM HEEL CAUSE NO ONE CARES. I DON’T GET IT.

IMG_20160124_191702
It’s about to get lit.

Fredo: Man, I didn’t even think Mr. Wonderful was still an active wrestler at this point.

Carlos: The battle of the banger themes.

Match #2: Disco Inferno vs “Mr. Wonderful” Paul Orndorff

IMG_20160124_192139
The only reason your mom agreed to take you to Nitro. That’s a shoot.

Fredo: Hyped on Disco Inferno as usual. Dude has all the moms in the crowd wetAF.

IMG_20160124_192259
Wuddap.

Fredo: Man, I am seriously hyped on this. I haven’t heard this theme song in so long. Getting people heated before he even hits the ring. His mirror game is so tight.

Carlos: The hair game in that ring is untouchable.

IMG_20160124_192437
Your mirror game will never be this strong. The fuck outta my face.

Fredo: FUCK, I neeed to find that mirror somewhere. WWESHOP should start busting these out. I’ll buy them all.

Carlos: I don’t give a shit about your new AJ Styles and A Double shirts. I need that hashtag 1derful mirror: STAT.

IMG_20160124_192940

IMG_20160124_193021

IMG_20160124_193044

Fredo: Disco opens up stomping Orndorff in the corner and is pretty relentless with his attack after. He’s definitely heated that Wonderful’s entrance game was so much tighter. But he’s a veteran, ya know?

Carlos: Kinda surprised by the whoopin’ Disco is putting on Orndorff.

IMG_20160124_193112

IMG_20160124_193138

IMG_20160124_193212

Fredo: Paul finally gets back in the game with a back elbow followed up by a Manhattan drop and a vicious knee drop. The crowd is chanting Paula at him. That crowd better shut the fuck up. Marks.

Carlos: They better slow down before Orndorff rails every single one of their mothers, looking at his own reflection the entire time. Orndorff a freak.

IMG_20160124_193244

IMG_20160124_193254
Paul’s been watching some All Japan I see.

Fredo: JESUS, HE JUST DUMPED DISCO ON HIS HEAD. I know for a fact his finish is a piledriver. I hope Disco got heat backstage and Orndorff just collected dues.

Carlos: Orndorff getting ready for his trip to Japan.

IMG_20160124_193924
Brian didn’t get the memo.

Fredo: Gene is out with the 4 Horsemen minus Chris Benoit. I guess they ran out of shirts for Pillman. Fuck it.

Carlos: I guess as long as you kinda dress like a cowboy it’s cool. I really want that shirt.

Fredo: Man, Pillman is definitely lit on all sorts of fucking drugs and booze. He is cutting a nonsensical promo accusing Mongo of being a closet fag. I’m ok with all of this. Pillman also calls out Orndorff for no longer being a bad motherfucker like he used to be. I remember where this is going.

Carlos: Someone get a giant pencil out there and kick this promo up to 11.

IMG_20160124_194354

Fredo: Paul is out to give Pillman the business and teach this punk some respect. Nigga headlined Wrestlemania 1.

Carlos: DID PILLMAN NOT SEE ORNDORFF’S MIRROR GAME?

IMG_20160124_194616

IMG_20160124_194656

IMG_20160124_194850

Fredo: Damn, Pillman slaps Orndorff and now we’ve got a huge brawl on the floor. This will not end well for Paul.

Carlos: I guess this is an Orndorff face turn? Why?

IMG_20160124_194931
Check out dem Flair stems *-*

Fredo: The Horseman use Orndorff’s own move on him as they spike piledrive him on the cement floor. This is where they kayfabe break his neck but I think he’s pretty much done after this anyway. Remember if he had an actual nagging neck injury, Coral?

Carlos: I remember Orndorff came back years later and one of his arms was like atrophied. He got hurt giving someone a piledriver on Thunder, maybe? It was random as hell. By like ’99/2000 WCW’s roster was really confusing.

IMG_20160124_195028
Abuelo? Chu alive?

Fredo: Looks like my grandpa dying in a hospital bed. There’s your daily dose of darkness. Now it’s time for the Saturday Night preview.

Carlos: If Mr. Wonderful hates the jews then I can confirm this is a lot like Fredo’s grandpa. OH SHIT, THE WCW SATURDAY NIGHT CARD. THIS ONE’S FOR YOU, ABUELO FREDO. GOD BLESS YOU AND MEL GIBSON.

IMG_20160124_195210

IMG_20160124_195220

IMG_20160124_195230

IMG_20160124_195240

Fredo: BUNKHOUSE BUCK IN ACTION, DADDY.

Carlos: Dr. Kim Medecine Woman outfit still bugging me.

Match #3: Lex Luger vs “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan

IMG_20160124_195347

Fredo: Lex Luger’s music is playing in the background but I’d honestly rather watch them slowly load Wonderful onto a stretcher.

Carlos: Luger’s theme fits this visual because it’s exactly how I feel when I hear it. The theme is tight AF, but I know who it’s attached to.

IMG_20160124_195530
Jimmy Hart looking tight. Luger unfortunately still alive.

Fredo: I’m only posting this pic to display how on point Jimmy Hart’s outfit is. That bow tie game is so on point that I can cut my finger on the fucking edge.

IMG_20160124_195719
No doubt highAF.

Fredo: Duggan coming out. Not quite a garbage man yet, but he’s close.

Carlos: We need to start reviewing WCW Saturday Nights just so we can cover his TV Title run that started when he found the title in the garbage.

IMG_20160124_195912
Looking like every maniacal bum I’ve ever encountered.

Fredo: I’m going to go ahead and say that not even Duggan’s mother would love that fucking face. Jesus.

Carlos: I just wanna drive on the Jersey Turnpike with him and Sheik. See how it plays out.

IMG_20160124_195927

Fredo: Damn, Duggan attacking Luger right off the tip. HeelAF, but no one cares cuz fuck Luger.

IMG_20160124_195943
Looks like Duggan is about to spew and Luger is disgusted.
IMG_20160124_200009
Nigga hit triangle.

Fredo: Hacksaw blocks a turnbuckle headbutt and hits us with his signature move: walking around with his thumb up, yelling HOOOOO, and if you read between the lines, telling marks to suck it.

Carlos: Remember when Yoko legit murdered him on WWF television? Dude was coughing up blood and shit after like 3 Banzai Drops. Pretty sure he legit died that day.

IMG_20160124_200022

Fredo: This is the perfect match to cut away to something completely unrelated.

Carlos: They are milking the fuck outta this.

IMG_20160124_200041

IMG_20160124_200105

Fredo: Luger takes a really ugly looking hip toss and gets rekkt by a clothesline. Hoping that hip toss somehow is the reason he’s practically crippled today.

Carlos: Flair recently mentioned going an hour with Duggan. I can’t see how that was even possible. I can’t think of a singles match Duggan was in that went ten minutes.

IMG_20160124_200156

Fredo: Duggan has the tape out like he’s gonna choke Luger. I vaguely remember him doing this often back then. I don’t really get why he was heeling it up as a babyface but I accept it anyway.

Carlos: He’s been lost ever since Yokozuna crushed the soul out of that old husk of a man.

IMG_20160124_200217

IMG_20160124_200232

Fredo: Jimmy Hart distracts Duggan and Luger locks in that torture rack. I’ll give it to Luger…he lifted Hacksaw with ease and he is a big boy. Other than that, suck it.

Carlos: Definitely suck it.

IMG_20160124_231121
It looks like Savage surfed the galaxy for that jacket.

Fredo: Gene is outside going over Randy’s match itinerary for the next week. Apparently aside from facing the winner of the triangle match, he’s facing Tenzan at Starrcade. Damn, I need to go back and watch this Starrcade real quick.

Carlos: I recently watched that entire event. Gotta say that match left me kinda disappointed. The earlier matches on the card had some bangers, though.

Fredo: Apparently he is not concerned with Flair, Luger, or Sting at Starrcade, but the Giant next week. Word, Randy. Keep doing that fucking blow.

Match #4: Sting and Hulk Hogan vs Ric Flair and Arn Anderson

IMG_20160124_231500
Really awkward shot where it looks like your two dads are coming out and proud. I wish these were my two dads.

Fredo: Flair’s robe game is tight as always. Arn holding it down with the dad jacket.

Carlos: Psyched Arn Anderson joined the Green Lantern Corp.

IMG_20160124_231643
YOO ARN HOLLA ATCHA BOY

Fredo: FUCK I NEED TO FIND THAT JACKET. I assume that will keep me warm through the coldest winters.

Carlos: Arn reminding people that his jacket game is ridiculous.

IMG_20160124_231809
Not seen: me with my little stinger out, fully painted.

Fredo: Sting’s music is playing, but let’s hit you with some Sting fans who get it. Should have let little Fre join your squad with his dick out. Don’t know why, but I figured you’d know we mean business.

Carlos: Psyched on you whipping out your baby dick for Sting.

IMG_20160124_231836
Oh so tight *-*

Fredo: Stinger is out by his lonesome. Where the fuck is Hogan?

Carlos: Sting’s skin looks like a Dominican washboard.

IMG_20160124_231907
“COME ON BRO I WAS SAVING THAT FUCKING OREO”

Fredo: Hogan looks confused as to why Sting came out before him. I know why. Sting has the most fucking banger theme song, but if you come out with Hogan, you have to come out to his music. Sting don’t fucking play. Sting don’t disappoint little Fre.

Carlos: Little Fre ain’t about to put that dick away.

IMG_20160124_231934
Arn is terrified of Hogan’s shirt. Probably because if it covers him, it’ll also get a 3 count.

Fredo: Looks like everything is cool as Hogan throws his shirt at the Horsemen. Totally fine.

Carlos: That shirt bodyslammed Andre the Giant you fucking mark.

IMG_20160124_232450
Yeah I posted this gratuitous ass shot. Fight me.

Fredo: Sting and Arn lock up. Is that a hole in Sting’s tights? Gonna assume it is. So close to his dong.

Carlos: Stick your little baby D in there and scratch his taint.

IMG_20160124_232543

IMG_20160124_232550

IMG_20160124_232607
Arn is pleased.

Fredo: Damn, Arn out-wrestles Stinger and fireman carries Sting into his back. Arn looks stoked.

Carlos: Arn Anderson is Fire Ant: Confirmed.

IMG_20160124_232655
Pee Wee in awe.

Fredo: Sting eventually catches Arn in a gorilla press slam. Makes it look so easy too. Sting savageAF.

Carlos: Arn and Flair have no problem making people look like a million bucks. Also have no problem murdering Paul Orndorff.

IMG_20160124_232750

IMG_20160124_232817

IMG_20160124_232823
When a nigga tries to cut you in line for a McDonald’s breakfast.

Fredo: Hogan and Flair tag in now. Hogan does what he does best and no sells Flair’s chops. Not even shit talking it, he made a career on looking unstoppable. Fuck ya marks.

Carlos: Hogan looks like a grandma without her teeth in that picture. It’s really fucking with me right now. I can’t stop looking at it.

IMG_20160124_232846

IMG_20160124_232925

IMG_20160124_232942

IMG_20160124_233000

Fredo: Flair felt like showing us a few of his go-to spots here. Taking a weird looking back body drop, then doing the turnbuckle flip and running into an arm clap from Sting. Damn, Coral, maybe Flair wasn’t joking when he said his offense was like 3 moves.

Carlos: Do you really need more than, like, 5?

IMG_20160124_233044

IMG_20160124_233055

IMG_20160124_233102
Man, Arn is so hyped. Wait til he realizes he’s about to get an unwanted beef injection.

Fredo: While Hogan is distracted, Arn comes in to do some damage and is very proud of himself again. Look at his face in that last picture. Like a stranger just offered him candy, but he doesn’t realize he has to pay in rape.

Carlos: I need to get in Arn Anderson shape. Muscles covered in Bud Light.

IMG_20160124_233217

Fredo: Horsemen take the advantage again briefly, but check out how heelAF Arn is. Grabbing his tights to hold him in the corner. Man, I miss shit like this.

Carlos: I can’t remember the last time a heel tag team did subtle shit like this. Either this is some smart heel work, or Arn wanted a peek a dat ass.

IMG_20160124_233311

Fredo: Sting eventually makes his way into the match and hits Flair with a gorilla press slam. Still fucked up how easy Sting makes it look considering he’s not really a huge huge dude. Except dat dick I assume.

Carlos: Imagine this Sting against Seth Rollins? Sting would’ve thrown him around like a cross fit bitch.

IMG_20160124_233400

IMG_20160124_233415

IMG_20160124_233423

IMG_20160124_233429

Fredo: Flair and Sting demonstrating a little chain wrestling real quick to keep it fucking G.

IMG_20160124_233532

Fredo: After a little distraction, Arn comes in and saves Flair from a Deathlock with a sick DDT. Still made it look better than anyone if you ask me.

Carlos: Double A murdered people with that DDT.

IMG_20160124_233557

IMG_20160124_233608

IMG_20160124_233626

Fredo: The fuck is Luger doing out here again? Why must he haunt my Nitros for more than 2 minutes? He’s causing a distraction outside while racking the fuck outta Hogan. Now the Horsemen are beating down Sting. FUCK YOU LUGER.

Carlos: ………………FUCK. WHY?

IMG_20160124_233835
Pee Wee bout to drop the tightest elbow.

IMG_20160124_233902

IMG_20160124_233908

IMG_20160124_233922

IMG_20160124_233931

Fredo: The Horsemen really work over Sting’s knee and Flair finally locks on a figure four. Sting, being brolick as fuck, drags Flair with him back to his corner, still locked in the FF. Arn eventually interjects and makes the save and the ref never sees the tag!

Carlos: Glad Hogan is completely unfazed by the random Torture Rack he just took.

IMG_20160124_234013

IMG_20160124_234019
IT’S LIT FAM

IMG_20160124_234032

Fredo: Sting eventually comes back, telling Flair “nah” when he chops and forearms Stinger.  Sting hits him with another vintage Flair move of taking a press slam off the top rope. Cuz you know, it works out so often.

Carlos: Flair only connects with top rope moves when he dupes Sting into believing he’s a good guy. Dumb AF Sting.

IMG_20160124_234049

IMG_20160124_234102

IMG_20160124_234122

Fredo: Just as Stinger is nearing Hogan, Arn cuts him off again and gets nailed with a diving bulldog for his troubles.

IMG_20160124_234144

Fredo: Sting finally falls into his corner for a half-hearted tag! In comes Hogan!

Carlos: The crowd goes mild.

IMG_20160124_234207

IMG_20160124_234212

IMG_20160124_234220

Fredo: Another picture perfect spinebuster from Arn, but Hogan is also like NAH.

Carlos: I loved this shit when I was a kid. Right now, no selling that work of art got me a little heated.

IMG_20160124_234236

IMG_20160124_234245

IMG_20160124_234253

Fredo: Hogan nails the BIG BOOT LEG DROP and Sting nails the splash on Flair as they take the win!

IMG_20160124_234336

IMG_20160124_234357

Fredo: Pillman is in attacking Sting! Luger AGAIN FUCK YOU runs out to save Sting but allows them to beat Hogan down. What’s happening?!

Carlos: FUCK YOU STEALER OF MY FRIEND.

Fredo: Eventually Sting runs past Luger and saves Hogan. Luger leaves pissed as hell.

IMG_20160124_234452

Fredo: Savage is in and in Sting’s face. Sting decks him because he is hard body as fuck and no one gets in his face.

Carlos: Cocaine on the brain Sting goin’ insane.

IMG_20160124_234621

IMG_20160124_234637

IMG_20160124_234736
This a barber shop quartet? The FUCK?

Fredo: The three guys finally decide to talk. You know, something that should have happened long ago. They put their differences aside until  the next time they forget they talked and are at each other’s throats again. We’ll be back next week with the Starrcade fallout!
