“I dress like dis cuz ur mom likes to bang dirty Mexicans in mariachi bands.” -Pepe

Carlos: Damn, Pepe coming in hot with that Tito Santana/Steve Martin in Three Amigos cosplay.

Fredo: That is definitely Steve Martin in Three Amigos. Look at his schnozz.

12636841_10100981892202174_735246183_o
Dropped her career in that trash can too.

Carlos: Oh shit, this was the night Medusa dropped the WWF Women’s Championship in the trash. This was supposed to be the first big shot in the Monday Night War. In retrospect, the WCW women’s division was almost non-existent. Aside from like four Japanese women. DID WCW EVEN HAVE A WOMEN’S TITLE?

Fredo: Nah. WCW paid her a lot of money to eventually be a dolled up bimbo.

12637192_10100981892212154_24680770_o
Sweater game so tight that Pepe didn’t go on a racial tirade.

Carlos: The Fridge is out there now. Mongo called him up there to keep people away from the announce booth. His sweater game is hypnotic.

Fredo: I really wish Pepe would have hired him to murder Mongo instead.

Match 1: “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair vs Eddie Guerrero

12656215_10100981892222134_2004824195_o
Robe game is tight as usual.

Carlos: Mmmmmm I am hyped for this match.

Fredo: Natch’ looking like a weird trippy butterfly.

12633364_10100981892232114_1797237222_o
In the background: a young Titus O’Neil

Carlos: Eddie getting that already-in-the-ring treatment again. At least it’s for Ric Flair.

Fredo: This marks the first time in Nitro history it’s ever KIND OF made sense.

12637329_10100981892242094_585745787_o
That kid just encouraged me to up my weird mask fuck game.

Carlos: So, Fre, how soon before you find one of those nightmare Sting masks to wear when you fuck?

Fredo: I’m pretty sure I won’t be able to bust a nut until I can fuck with that mask on now.

12669878_10100981892262054_1467927213_o

Carlos: The dirtiest player in the game comes in hot, but Guerrero uses his speed to avoid giving Flair the upper hand on the mat.

12637261_10100981892282014_211556496_o

12669338_10100981892306964_2027192451_o

Carlos: Eddie shows Flair how that Latino flavor struts all over the white man.

Fredo: Flair suddenly remembers why he hates Mexicans.

12656507_10100981892316944_1925853243_o

12633148_10100981892336904_1199907479_o

12633307_10100981892351874_295360720_o

Carlos: That didn’t last too long. Flair gets the upper hand and shaves Eddie’s mustache off with that textbook knee drop.

Fredo: Note that he didn’t actually shave off Eddie’s mustache or he’d be dead. For it is the source of his strength, and life force. The end all and be all of this universe. We are the mustache.

12656432_10100981892371834_441966739_o
Flair looking like he’s getting sucked into a tornado.

Carlos: Man, Flair straight lights Eddie up in the corner with chops.

Fredo: I’m sure Eddie will do some lighting up of his own after the match to numb the pain.

12637261_10100981892401774_546687208_o

12632982_10100981892421734_2113167127_o

12637409_10100981892446684_2141222514_o

Carlos: Beautiful move by Guerrero! I loved hearing Flair explain that Bischoff was irate he gave Guerrero so much offense. They spent so much time on commentary putting Eddie over, but behind the scenes it was a different story. I’m glad these guys went out there and made it competitive.

Fredo: I always loved how Flair never had a problem putting people over and helping younger talent he believed in. It reminds of that story he tells where Savage wanted to beat HHH in one minute on his way out and Ric was like “nah.” Coincidentally both those dudes are former and current world champions and certified legends.

12637023_10100981892466644_1777998502_o

12630709_10100981892496584_160526729_o

12637009_10100981892516544_816599460_o

Carlos: Flair knocked Eddie off the top and works on that knee on the floor! Damn, Eddie ate the railing, too.

Fredo: I hope it tasted like booze.

12669236_10100981892546484_2065103858_o

Carlos: Flair locks in that figure four and Eddie eventually passes out. Two hall of famers opening the show with some fire. Suck it, Bischoff.

Fredo: Didn’t even have Eddie tap. Pretty awesome of Flair. Nigga knows who to put over.

12670012_10100981892566444_9199364_o
Dadforcer

Carlos: Arn is out there, continuing to show off his phenomenal shirt game. He talks about how the Horsemen are on a roll and will continue to take out anyone in their way.

Fredo: I can only hope my dad shirt game is nearly as on point as Arn’s.

12656503_10100981892596384_564599341_o

Carlos: Sullivan comes out, talks about how he respects the Horsemen. He tells them to put Pillman on a short leash, cause he’s been calling out his Dungeon. Arn tells Sullivan to chill the fuck out, cause the Horsemen ride together. He’s gonna push my dudes shit in.

Fredo: People getting a little too bold with the Horsemen lately. Is Arn gonna have to break a bitch’s neck?

12630670_10100981892611354_503330458_o
Pittman with far too much air time.

Carlos: Craig “Pitbull” Pittman out there. The Refrigerator Perry already fucking up his new job. He’s asking Heenan to manage him all the way to the WCW Championship. HAH. HAHAHA. HAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHA FUCK. Heenan said “nah.”

Fredo: Props to Pitbull for the funniest segment on Nitro.

Match 2: “The Total Package” Lex Luger vs Marcus Alexander Bagwell

12656165_10100981892621334_640397022_o
Fuck you

Carlos: Fuck you.

Fredo: FUCK YOU.

12633291_10100981892631314_1001109284_o
I wanna travel back and time and beat this kid within an inch of his life

Carlos: It says…Flex with Lex…on that kid’s face. It says Lex over his mouth. Lex Luger is all up on that kids mouth. Man, what the fuck.

Fredo: Gonna assume that’s not the first time Luger has been up on a young boy’s mouf.

Poised and ready to take on Luger or any big body Bess that wants to ride that Marcus train.
Poised and ready to take on Luger or any big body Bess that wants to ride that Marcus train.

Carlos: My dude MARKUS.

Fredo: A young Jerry Mascolo.

12630823_10100981892701174_73632084_o
I see Bagwell is more lenient with his clientell.

Carlos: After some awkward moves from Luger, Bagwell hits him with a monkey flip. What an odd choice of move.

Fredo: I’m just shocked that Luger didn’t make it look like shit. Dude could barely take a hip toss without fucking it up.

12633194_10100981892716144_1947995104_o

12656031_10100981892746084_1724736463_o
Carlos: Luger straight eats shit on the floor. Scares the crap out of a little girl when he nailed the railing.

Fredo: I would have been stoked if that little girl pulled out a shiv and stuck Luger. You know, out of fear. Or becauee fuck Luger.

12637389_10100981893080414_941768548_o
Riggs pointing to the gay ass shit happening right now.

Carlos: Riggs is out there to support his brother in the male prostitution game but it doesn’t help.

Fredo: Probably just telling Bagwell to wrap it up because they have overweight trailer trash to bang.

12631021_10100981893155264_1448552864_o

Carlos: Luger picks up the win. Fat women that pay for sex weep in unison.

Fredo: Then immediately eat their feelings via 3 five dollar foot longs.

12637356_10100981893190194_1597036256_o

Carlos: Yeah, I totally needed more Luger. PLEASE, GET THE FUCK OUTTA THE TITLE PICTURE. YOU DON’T NEED TO BE ON STARRCADE. FUCK.

Fredo: If he doesn’t take the fall in that match, fuck WCW.

12631185_10100981893205164_581691153_o

12631192_10100981893230114_265080018_o

12631097_10100981893265044_527664893_o

12637270_10100981893289994_727041279_o

12656169_10100981893309954_343851852_o

Carlos: That Saturday Night card just took me on an emotional journey. Kim still looking ridiculous in that picture.

Fredo: FUCK I CANT EVEN WATCH SATURDAY NIGHT WITHOUT LUGER ON MY TV.

Match 3: Earl Robert Eaton vs Sting

12630861_10100981893329914_835673642_o

Carlos: YES. Bobby Eaton you f’n jabrons.

Fredo: Bow to the Earl, marks. You ain’t got any fine fucking sirs on RAW.

12632927_10100981893349874_1682444677_o
Sting looking like an uncaged albino gorilla.

Carlos: Sting looking almost too hyped.

Fredo: SHUT THE FUCK UP CORAL I’M HYPED AS FUCK!

12596843_10100981893409754_796632965_o

Carlos: That’s right, tap! TAP, STING. TAP TO THE GOD DAMN EARL.

Fredo: I wouldn’t be mad. It’s an honor to lose to Bobby of Eaton.

12511289_10100981893364844_743743120_o

12630776_10100981893389794_430093966_o

Carlos: Sting gets the upper hand and lets everyone know that monkey flips are where it’s at tonight.

Fredo: Gonna assume that they agreed to work a whole show around the monkey flip tonight.

12632810_10100981893399774_1726963656_o

12630667_10100981893429714_1621995567_o

Carlos: YEAH. SHOW THAT JABRON HOW YOU GET THE JOB DONE. BEAUTIFUL BOBBY FOREVER. FIGHT ME.

Fredo: No, Sting, noooo… 🙁

12631162_10100981893439694_1836894577_o

12656514_10100981893454664_369648189_o
Hyped on Nick Patrick stepping through Coral’s window. COME TO MAH WINDOOOW

12669808_10100981893464644_1652074359_o

12669092_10100981893479614_2084485096_o

Carlos: JESUS. Sting hip tossed the shit outta Eaton but then got caught with a backbreaker that’d make Roderick Strong blush.

Fredo: Damn. Sting got back broken so hard that Lex Luger became a paraplegic years later.

12630924_10100981893489594_915686418_o

12656340_10100981893519534_1524770617_o

Carlos: NOOOO. BEAUTIFUL BOBBY NOOOOOOO.

12656499_10100981893539494_1594916041_o

12669909_10100981893559454_985188581_o

12636925_10100981893569434_937736884_o

12656174_10100981893584404_1720422002_o

Carlos: 🙁

Fredo: Sting forever. I love you Bobby, but you need to get that blue blood shit out of my face right now and let Sting speak.

12669239_10100981893594384_428519657_o

Carlos: Sting is ready for Starrcade and looking to be champ again. It should’ve been Eaton.

Fredo: Gonna not disagree with that at all.

Main Event: The Giant vs “Macho Man” Randy Savage (WCW World Heavyweight Championship)

12636975_10100981893609354_373147108_o

12637302_10100981893923724_1058533812_o

Carlos: That production completely shits on WWF right now.

Fredo: The evil green lighting vs. the very macho color purple. I’m in.

12633027_10100981893938694_1730914604_o

12630874_10100981893953664_213852897_o

12633036_10100981893963644_702222179_o

Carlos: Macho Man went in with the sleeper. Did not end well.

Fredo: Should have slipped a couple of Somas in his mouth. Luger definitely has some in his bag.

12636861_10100981893978614_422821068_o

Carlos: A GIANT kick to the dick. Right? Right? Yeah.

Fredo: …yeah.

12656260_10100981894023524_384122011_o

Carlos: Giant tries to squeeze the life outta Macho Man.

Fredo: Macho looks like Giant just came back from the war and he’s happy AF to see him.

12620509_10100981894033504_1223758241_o

Carlos: YEAH, TAKE THEM EYES.

Fredo: Savage thinking there’s cocaine in there for some reason.

12670004_10100981894058454_954455735_o

Carlos: The fight spills to the outside, but The Giant keeps the advantage. He throws Macho Man around like an infant.

12633254_10100981894068434_777575441_o

12630887_10100981894088394_1569941332_o
Pee Wee looks more like he walked in on his grandparents boning than seeing a flying giant.

Carlos: WOW. I wonder if this is the night Arn almost had a heart attack seeing The Giant go off the top. Told him to immediately slow it the fuck down.

Fredo: Giant very inspired by the early cruiserweight division.

12630907_10100981894103364_834272086_o

12656064_10100981894113344_968482852_o

12636951_10100981894128314_991763559_o

Carlos: Not even a one count! Making sure Giant looks strong AF.

12632873_10100981894178214_200318903_o

Carlos: Another move that probably got Double A heated: a very awkward looking dropkick.

Fredo: This is like when you create a wrestler in 2K and make him huge but give him cruiserweight movesets. Hilarious.

12630914_10100981894193184_1467735555_o

12656536_10100981894238094_771544977_o

Carlos: That was actually a pretty cool spot. Giant went to suplex Savage on the concrete but he held on to the ropes and Giant hit the ground hard. No sold the fuck outta that, though.

Fredo: Giant probably contemplating an asai moonsault now.

12636846_10100981894248074_1254891243_o

12669291_10100981894278014_1392303298_o

12656388_10100981894287994_141505729_o

12637312_10100981894317934_1178703445_o

Carlos: GOD DAMN. He chokeslammed the shit outta Savage, AND hit em with a leg drop. Rubbing Hogan’s nose in shit. I have a feeling Hulkamania is about to run wild.

Fredo: Hulkamania gotta be hero. Wish it was Pastamania instead.
12656357_10100981894337894_1871634319_o

12633177_10100981894627314_2045336560_o

Carlos: HAHAHAHAHA HOGAN JUST RAILED EVERYONE WITH A FUCKING CHAIR. EVEN THAT NWO REFEREE NICK PATRICK. YES.

Fredo: He knows Nick is a snake. Even now. He’ll be an excellent recruit.

12655978_10100981894642284_778188882_o

Carlos: Hogan is on a rampage and he has Macho Man’s back. Macho Man says that after Starrcade, it’s time to give the people the match they want: HOGAN VS SAVAGE. See you all next week!
