The Nightly: September 22nd, 2021

Hello Nightly!!!


Hunter Hearst Helmsley vs. Marc Mero for the WWF Intercontinental Championship:

Alright match.

Rocky Maivia vs. Salvatore Sincere:

The biggest takeaway was that Jim Cornette is now managing Tom Brandi?

Cibernetico and Pierroth vs. New Rockers:

This was a bit of a AAA invasion, with a post match interview with Mil Mascaras to boot. The Forbidden Door is alive and well in WWF in late 96-early 97.

Bret Hart vs. Fake Razor Ramon:

Okay match.


Eddie Guerrero vs. Chris Benoit:

Good match as always, the post match stuff was interesting, with dissension between the Horsemen over Benoit’s affair with Woman.

Lex Luger vs. Tombstone:

The biggest takeaway here was that 911 from ECW was in WCW for a cup of coffee.

Rey Mysterio Jr. vs. Mr. JL:

Good match.

Glacier vs. Sgt. Buddy Lee Parker:

Awful match, Glacier was trying new moves, but felt very rehearsed and it seemed like Parker just would not sell for Glacier.

Amazing French Canadians vs. Public Enemy:

Alright match.

Big Bubba vs. Konnan:

This match ended via an over the top rope DQ. Damn it, Watts!

Dean Malenko vs. Lord Steven Regal for the WCW World Television Championship:

This match ended via a time limit draw, which I’m not crazy about, I don’t know, maybe it’s too old school for me. Shame, because it was a good match.

Jeff Jarrett vs. Rick Steiner:

Disaster of a match. NWO Sting comes down to interfere and Jarrett tries to pin him?

The show would end with the second Hogan promo of the night and Bischoff doing a bad Piper impression. Was a decent go home promo for Hogan/Piper at Starrcade.

Overall, Nitro was probably the more interesting show.

On to the Nightly.
