Podcast Wrestling Society - Episode 10 - The Good, The Bad, and the Very, Very Ugly of Vince Russo on Nitro Pt. 1
We laugh, we cry, we face palm, and we get a headache trying to figure out what the hell was going on. Troy & Greg give their analysis, week-by-week, of WCW Nitro after Vince Russo took the helm as the Head of Creative. This is part 1, where they cover October 1999 - January 2000. Russo is starting off hot with sexism, racism, making fun of overweight people, making fun of people with disabilities, and constantly taking not-so-subtle jabs at his former employers. Greg went back on the WWE Network, rewatched every single Nitro being talked about (as well as the pay-per-views along the way), and Troy is following along with his notes. They are also letting everyone know what's going on over on the other channel as a 3-hour Nitro "competes" with a still 2-hour Raw Is War. By this time, the Monday Night Wars were all but over, and the product WCW is pumping out on a weekly basis is just sad to watch. It's a hilarious look-back at the beginning of the end of WCW Monday Nitro! But don't worry...there's plenty more still to come in future episodes of the Podcast Wrestling Society!
