The streak is over and Nash is the champion. Eric Bischoff defeated Ric Flair after Flair bumped and bladed for him.
TO THE LAST NIGHT. We get to see the nWo celebrating Bischoff's win in a stationary limo with champagne. Of course the first thing we see has nothing to do with Goldberg losing, but Bischoff celebrating, just like the go home Nitro opened with a Bischoff video instead of anything on the title match.
They basically brush off the title switch to keep talking about Bischoff winning.
The Cat vs Shiima Lamaramadingdong
Cat was shit talking for a bit. Jericho and Ralphus came out and brought CIMA out, promising to watch his back. He wasn't very excited about it. Cat makes quick work of him.
Chavo Guerrero Jr. vs Norman Smiley
Chavo tries a pose off. Norman didn't indulge him. Norman gets bumped to the floor. Chavo grinds on Pepe. Norman hits a big spinning back suplex. Smiley slam. Norman wiggles out of a sunset flip, only to pull Chavo up into another sunset flip. Norman does a wiggle with Pepe. Tornado bulldog. Don't mess with Pepe. Chavo is in control and then randomly goes to Pepe, which opens him up for the crossface.
TO THE LEVEY'S. Raven's mom let WCW cameras into their home. Raven's mom wants to make him a sandwich, chocolate milk, and makes him take his jacket off. Raven wants a real drink. I hope WHATTAMARK.GIF is in one of these segments that will be on this show.
Fit Finlay vs Booker T.
Finlay starts the match by knocking Book on his ass. It quickly goes to the floor. Back in the ring, Finlay continues the assault. Booker makes a flurry, but it goes right back to Finlay dominating. Back to the floor. Fit is making Book look like a punk. Book hits the Harlem side kick and missile dropkick for the win. Barely any offense the whole match. It was weird.
TO THE MEAN BY GOD GENE. Gene brings out Ric Flair, who comes to the ring with his bags packed. He's ashamed he got his ass kicked last night. He went back after the show and got drunk, called Arn and said it was over, his wife called him and said it was over, but he wanted to come to Baltimore. The clothes start coming off. YOU JACKASS. He takes his his expensive belt off, throws his shoes into the crowd, starts ripping up $100 bills, throws his shoes into the crowd, and then takes his pants off so he can drop an elbow. He's not leaving the building until he gets Bischoff. He will leave wrestling, sign his cars, sign his house, sign anything Bischoff wants if Flair gets control of WCW for 90 days if he wins. He handcuffs himself to the ropes. He threatens to be naked if the cameras are cut off. Of course, they go right to commercial and I don't see Flair's old man balls. Bischoff comes out. "When I die of a heart attack, it will be on your girlfriend, pal." Bischoff takes the money left in the ring and agrees to the match.
Sharmell is the new Nitro Girl and gets a solo spot. No one thought it was weird that the one black Nitro Girl was dressed in black while the rest were in silver?
Barry Windham vs TAFKATAFKAPI
Barry wins with a bulldog. Fuck Prince.
TO THE MEAN GENE. Gene talks with a security member and sergeant of a SWAT team. He has the cattle prod that Hall used last night. They were invented for herding cattle and are meant to cause neurological issues, possibly long term problems if used for too long and improperly.
TO THE MEAN GENE. DDP comes to the ring. He's happy to have won, but he'd rather talk about Flair/Bischoff and Goldberg/Nash. The deep breaths he takes in between screaming are gross. He predicts Bischoff is going down tonight.
TO THE BACK. Konnan is telling Disco that Nash is mad at him. Nash walks by and confirms. He's going to the ring to try to make things right. He also offers Disco a match to prove he can be in the Wolfpac.
Eddie Guerrero/Juventud Guerrera vs Rey Mysterio Jr./Kidman
Rey and Eddie start out. Standard lucha stuff. Arm drags, running past each other, tiltawhirl back breaker. Kidman and Juvi tag in. More run past each other stuff, ending in a wheelbarrow bulldog from Juvi. Bronco buster. Eddie is still pissed at Rey. As on point all these guys were last night, this is super sloppy. A missile dropkick sends Juvi into Eddie and both of them to the floor. Double dive from the technicos. Hilariously bad spinning head scissors from Rey. Eddie hits a big powerbomb. He never took powerbombs lightly with Rey. Doomsday cross body. In ring hilo. Spinning hangman spinning spin spin breaker. Powerbomb capped with a spring board leg drop from the rudos. Kidman and Rey work Rock N' Roll Express spots. Hot tag. Powerbomb/senton combo. Juvi breaks up the pin. YOU CAN'T POWERBOMB KIDMAN. This is follow with a springboard leg drop to the back of the neck. Eddie kicked out. Simultaneous BK Bomb and X-Factors. Kidman gets knocked off the ropes to the floor. Rey gets tossed out on the other side. Juvi dives on Rey. Eddie hits the frog splash on Kidman for the win.
The Wolfpac come to the ring. Nash got into wrestling for money, power, and respect. If Disco can beat Bam Bam, he can join the Wolfpac. What Hall did last night was not something he asked for. He offers Goldberg a rematch next week on Nitro at the Georgia Dome. He thinks he can beat Goldberg on his own and wants to prove it.
Disco Inferno vs Bam Bam Bigelow
Bam Bam throws Disco around for a while. Bam Bam misses the diving headbutt. Disco hits the spinning neckbreaker and Chartbuster. Bam Bam easily wins with the Greetings from Asbury Park.
TO THE BACK. Bischoff is getting warmed up for his match with Curt Hennig in his ridiculous DCAU blue suit.
TO CHARLOTTE. Flair's doctor revealed that Ric Flair did not have a heart attack, but instead suffered from a toxin. Wait, you're telling me that instead of a heart attack, Ric Flair was POISONED? Lolwcw. Fucking Heisenberg.
TO THE BACK. Gene asked Bischoff about this. Eric is flipping out that Flair is okay.
Scott Steiner vs Konnan WCW TV Championship
Konnan took the nWo ref. Security took him out. Scott Dickinson decided he'd ref this match. They have a terrible match that Steiner wins. New champion. Lol at the leader of the nWo going from being a WCW Champion to TV Champion. I think that sums everything up.
Scott Hall vs Brian Adams
Hall is offended that he wasn't even invited to Nash's victory party. Another terrible match that a guy named Scott wins.
Ric Flair vs Eric Bischoff
If Flair wins, he will assume control of WCW for 90 days. If Bischoff wins, Flair will leave wrestling forever, and possibly give his house and cars to Bischoff. We go TO THE BACK to see Bischoff head to his limo. In the limo were the Horsemen. They bring him to the ring. Flair mauls Bischoff. nWo members try to run out, but were intercepted by Horsemen. The numbers game eventually gets too big. Giant gets in the ring and headbutts Flair. THE MACHO MAN strolls out in an nWo shirt. He low blows Giant. SWERVE! Flair locks on the figure four. NEW PRESIDENT! The Horsemen, Larry, Tony, DDP, Booker, and Dusty Rhodes celebrate with Ric Flair as WCW signs off for the year. A nice way to end the year on a high note. This is really what the match at Starrcade should have been. I see no reason why they had Bischoff win at Starrcade just to run this match the next night. They should have had the same match and stipulation at Starrcade.
