[1999-02-08-WCW-Nitro] DDP, Scott Steiner and Kimberly

Recommended Posts

MORE SKITS! DDP attacks Scott Steiner who's stalking Kimberly as she's arriving in the limo. Scott Steiner takes off in the car with Kimberly before dumping her out. She takes a heck of a bump before getting carted out on a stretcher and put in an ambulance. This is an awfully hardcore angle to be treated as just another feud and not center the entire show around it, having Ric Flair do a speech to address and levy fines, suspensions, etc. And why wouldn't DDP get his revenge at the pay-per-view? Just awful, and the cavalier way it's treated in the big picture makes it come across as tasteless.

We get a beatdown outside but this hasnt' been a feud that has set the world on fire either. WCW is dragging right now and a pretty big slog to get through honestly as some is wrestlecrap but other stuff is just really dull like this.

If it wasn't a stunt double then Kimberly was crazy for doing that bump. Steiner acts like a psychotic, deranged lunatic and commits a serious criminal act. But it's not real so who cares? Next segment.

What everyone else said. Tasteless as fuck because, again, lack of commitment. I mean, I don't think this angle could really be saved in any environment, but Kevin Sullivan or even Filtered Vince Russo probably would have had the sense to tear up the TV format to get this over, maybe throw in a few "shoot" elements that aren't really necessary but at least get across that this is "different." Oh, and asking Scott Steiner to do stunt driving and Kimberly to take that bump...Jesus. Did they think last week's angle to write Kimberly off wasn't enough or something? Or was this just a desperate attention grab?
