The Nightly: January 23rd, 2022

Hello Nightly!!!

WCW Monday Nitro: February 9th, 1998:

Steve McMichael vs. Glacier:

Honestly, one of Mongo’s better matches.

Konnan vs. Norman Smiley:

This was Smiley’s first appearance on Nitro. No screaming from him, however.

Disco Inferno vs. Yuji Nagata:

Why did Disco win this match?

Chris Jericho and Eddie Guerrero vs. Dean Malenko and Chavo Guerrero Jr.:

Good match.

Juventud Guerrera vs. El Dandy:

After this match, Jericho would challenge Juventud to a title vs. mask match at SuperBrawl.

Goldberg vs. Lord Steven Regal:

A beautiful disaster of a match, Regal outclassed and out wrestled Goldberg here.

Chris Adams vs. Louie Spiccoli:

Larry Z would come down to set up a match with him and Louie at SuperBrawl, which never took place due to Louie’s death less than a week after this Nitro.

Saturn vs. Ultimo Dragon:

Good match.

Hollywood Hogan vs. Randy Savage:

This match was slow and plodding with a lot of outside brawling.

Steiner Brothers vs. The Outsiders for the WCW World Tag Team Championships:

The Steiners would finally win the titles thanks to Rick.

Overall, this was a pretty solid Nitro as we head towards SuperBrawl.

On to the Nightly.
