On this date in WCW history: Scott Steiner shoots on Ric Flair and says, "WCW sucks"

In the final days of WCW, Scott Steiner unloads on Ric Flair in this infamous shoot promo from the February 7, 2000, episode of Monday Nitro.

On the February 7, 2000, edition of World Championship Wrestling's (WCW) Monday Nitro, Scott Steiner decided he'd had just about enough of Ric Flair and that it was time to get a few things off his chest.

Even at the expense of his own employer.

Here's an excerpt:

"When you walked down that aisle last week, I know I wasn't alone, because the people at home, all they did was grab their remote, change the channel to the WWF and watch Stone Cold (Steve Austin), a person you and your old friends got fired from here because you're a jealous, old bastard. So Ric Flair, remember this, in this wrestling business, there's never been a bigger ass-kissing, butt-******* bastard in this business. But also in life, you're the biggest ass kissing, back-stabbing, butt-******* bastard and you belong where you're at, in WCW, because WCW sucks!"

Full video of his unscripted shoot, which earned him a two-week suspension (with pay -- lolz), right here:

Anyone think this was somehow, someway, an elaborate work?
