    Dudes,

    Listening to the podcast right now in my office. I guess only me, Dirt Dawg and Jerry are the only ones who actually care about being the first. Gotcha both again.

    Gentlemen,

    Thanks for the almost two hour show. I just listened to it with my mom on a three hour car ride back from Duluth to St. Cloud and she enjoyed the Nitro Girls discussions.

    For some odd reason I’ve been thinking about this edition of WCW Nitro and didn’t know what episode number it was. All I remember is Luger winning the WCW title on Monday and losing it on the Hog Wild PPV that weekend. I felt that title reign meant nothing, especially sandwiched between two lengthy title runs by Hogan (I think Hogan held the title for a full year when Luger beat him).

    Anyways, thanks again for the awesome show, I love when you guys review Nitro’s, Clash of Champions, Saturday Night’s Main Event, and shows of such (I’m sure Raw’s and Smackdown’s will come soon enough).

      I really think that Luger winning and quickly losing the title was a sign of the terribleness to come in WCW. It really just showed that whatever momentum WCW could gain, it would be quickly snatched away by the awesome and powerful NwO

      • Dirty Dawg Darsie says:

        A show behind, but Hogan held the title for 359 days when Luger won the title. Luger held it for 5 days, then Hogan held it for 141 days, before loosing it to Sting at that year’s Starrcade.

    Good Ep, fellas.

    Great look back at the heyday.

    Dre, Black Cat. You The Shiz, Son. Keep up the good work or i’ll tell Khali to kill a man. Again!

  6. While I would’ve supported WCW, I was up in the upper bowl for the only Nitro I ever went to.

    From what I understand, WCW was right when they spelled it Hennig.

    I’m going to assume Silver King did not do the reverse super frankensteiner in the tag match with Glacier and Ernest Miller. He was the first person I ever saw do that and I thought it was pretty awesome.

    The small handful of WCW events I went to I was disappointed that I was sitting too far away to throw garbage in the ring.

  7. JBLCENAFAN says:

    I think of this as the start of the downfall of WCW , as they build towards Sting vs Hogan they jobbed Hulk to Piper , The Giant and Luger.

  8. The British Bullfrog says:

    It was interesting to hear about the amount of signs in the crowd for this show.

    Im sure its safe to say that many of the sign holders tend not to be readers of the great literary works or writers of satirical wit, but they get their message across to all in the areana. Well the people who are sat within a ten seat radius.

    My favourite sign to this day was in the nosebleed section at SummerSlam 92 where a young wrestling fan had written:

    “Ric Flair is a trouser cough!”

    This terminology, although easy to decipher, was clearly only used in this fans household.
    Im sure if Mr Flair had access to a high powered telescope, he would have had a “tear in his eye” at this cutting comment.

    I always think how strange it may seem to people who are sharing public transport with sign carrying wrestling fans.

    “Mummy why is that man carrying a large peice of card with a picture of a semi naked man that has been cut out of a magazine stuck on it?”

    “I don’t know Billy. Just look out of the window.”

    “Mummy what does Suck It mean?”

    “Come on Billy, its our stop.”

    Mummy!this isn’t our stop!”

    “IT IS! COME ON…”
