WCW 2000

Recommended Posts

Since I finally have been able to keep a podcast going regularly (check out Who Booked This? on the PWO Podcast Network), I think it's time to get back into some armchair booking.

 

What better place to start then WCW in 2000?

 

Souled Out 2000 is a few days away and it's now come out that WCW World Champion Bret Hart is injured and may have to retire, and WCW United States Champion Jeff Jarrett is injured and can not compete. The main event and semi-main event are now cancelled.

 

Head booker, Vince Russo's plan to fix this is to give the title to Tank Abbott. He is fired on the spot.

 

This is when Steven Graham comes in to take over the head booking position, while Kevin Sullivan will be his assistant. Rumours are talents like Chris Benoit and Shane Douglas are unhappy with this decision and may walk out after the ppv.

 

January 16, 2000

 

Live from the Firstar Center in Cincinnati, Ohio on PPV!

 

Souled Out

 

The original line up was:

 

WCW World Champion Bret Hart vs Sid Vicious

 

WCW US Champion Jeff Jarrett vs Chris Benoit (Triple Threat Theater Series)

 

Terry Funk vs Kevin Nash (Hardcore Match, winner becomes Commissioner of WCW)

 

Buff Bagwell vs Diamond Dallas Page (Last Man Standing)

 

WCW Tag Team Champions David Flair & Crowbar vs Vampiro and a Dream Tag Partner

 

Big Vito & Johnny the Bull w/ Disco Inferno vs The Harris Brothers

 

WCW Cruiserweight Champion Madusa vs Oklahoma

 

WCW Hardcore Champion Brian Knobbs vs Fit Finlay vs Norman Smiley vs Meng

 

Booker T w/ Midnight vs Stevie Ray

 

Tank Abbott vs Jerry Flynn

 

This card will obviously change come Sunday's Souled Out as the new booker is now in place, but how. Will Benoit and company walk? How will they handle the top two matches?

The Moon. The Moon would be a better place to start.

 

Or, maybe, Mexico. In 1995.

Shit, the moon.

 

Yeah, that was some whacked out shit and more of a story with chapters and stuff. It's COMPLETELY different.

 

Maybe I'll try to write some of that as well.

 

Weird mentioning Mexico, because I was figuring out Mexico in 93 in LA using the IWC name, but went to WCW instead. I think I just want to book La Parka. The problem with Mexico is that it was so good already, how can you make it better? While WCW was THE UTTER SHIT, so it's an actual issue.

I'm still bummed out that the 1988-1992 project fell apart before it got going. That could have been a lot of fun.

It's hard to have the right people involved. First that they will continue to post and second that people don't get completely unrealistic (pushing guys way too early before they are ready, or way too late when they are over the hill).

Since this ppv was already booked, I will give a brief recap here.

 

Souled Out

January 16, 2000 in Cincinnati, OH

Firstar Center

Live on PPV

 

Announcers: Tony Schviane, Bobby "The Brain" Heenan, & Mike Tenay

 

Announcers explain how Jeff Jarrett was injured last Monday and can not compete tonight, thus the title match with Chris Benoit is off. Also, WCW World Champion Bret Hart is injured and may never compete again. The Title is vacant and Commissioner Terry Funk made a title match between #1 Contender Sid Vicious, #1 Contender for the US Title and member of The Revolution Chris Benoit, member of The Filthy Animals Billy Kidman, and member of the nWo Scott Steiner.

 

1. Kaz Hayashi pinned Psicosis to gain a Cruiserweight Title shot at 14:14.

 

2. Tank Abbott pinned Jerry Flynn w/ Jimmy Hart at 2:44.

*MMA style fight

 

3. The Harris Brothers defeated The Mamalukes w/ Disco Inferno at 7:53.

*Disco cost Mamalukes match, by mistakenly tripping Vito

 

4. Madusa pinned Oklahoma at 0:35.

*Not for the Cruiserweight Title, since Oklahoma did not meet weight. After the match Aja Kong confronted Madusa and knocked her out with a spinning back fist

 

5. Norman Smiley beat WCW Hardcore Champion Brian Knobbs w/ Jimmy Hart, Fit Finilay w/ Jimmy Hart, & Meng to become the title at 11:41.

 

*Kevin Nash says once he wins tonight, the main event will feature Steiner, himself, and The Harris Brothers for the title, because the title stays with the nWo.

 

6. Booker T pinned Stevie Ray at 4:41.

 

7. Vampiro & Dustin Rhodes beat WCW World Tag Team Champions David Flair & Crowbar w/ Daffney to win the titles at 5:44.

*Vampiro picked former WCW Tag Team Champion Dustin Rhodes as his partner.

 

8. Terry Funk pinned Kevin Nash to disband the nWo forever, if Nash had won he would had become Commissioner at 11:35.

 

9. Diamond Dallas Page w/ Kimberly defeated Buff Bagwell in a Last Man Standing Match at 13:55.

 

10. Scott Steiner beat Sid Vicious, Billy Kidman, and Chris Benoit to win the vacant WCW World Title at 16;32.

*Steiner pinned Benoit, after Kidman took out Sid with a plancha in a match where everybody had a chance to win.

This should be fun.

 

I have a WCW 2000 fantasy booking I've started and saved a zillion times (including even here once) and actually have written out PPV by PPV until 2002-ish (Eddie Guerrero vs. Vampiro as a main event in Mexico!), and had the outlines of a World Title plan out until 2005-2006-ish.

Would love to see that Jesse.
