This week, we talk about the April 13th, 1998 episode of WCW Nitro, and we’re joined by special guest Jetta Rae Robertson! This episode went SUPER long, and there were a bunch of technical problems while recording it, so I decided to split it into two halves. This one covers only NITRO, so stop by next week for the stunning conclusion!Topics of discussion include: The WWE women’s division, professional wrestling on military bases, Bret Hart beating off the entire NWO, the scariest Nitro Party, and the sidewalk slam(?).
Also, you can (and should) check out Jetta’s podcast, The Great Podcast in the History of Our Sport.
This week, the boys look at April 6th, 1998, the last week of Nitro’s historic 84 week ratings domination. Magnum TOKYO makes a random Nitro appearance, Dan Severn is pretty awesome, Hulk Hogan is surprisingly coherent and both Mick Foley and Steve Austin cut amazing promos. A surprisingly good week of TV, believe it or not.
This week, we talk about the March 30th, 1998 episodes of WWF Raw, and WCW Nitro. Topics of discussion include: The true meaning of “rip ass”, WCW salaries, circus death matches, how to properly sell the Stone Cold Stunner, evening gown matches that don’t make any sense, Nitro being too fucking long, DTI’s, DHI’s, and QCI’s.
We wrap up this year’s look at the worst of Halloween Havoc with Sid vs. Goldberg from 1999. This match consists almost entirely of punching. And bleeding. And one camel clutch. It’s bad.
