The Nightly: January 9th, 2021

Hello Nightly!!!


Disciples Of Apocalypse vs. Los Boricuas in a Long Island Street Fight:

Decent hardcore match.

Ken Shamrock vs. Kama Mustafa:

Solid match.

Brian Christopher and Jerry Lawler vs. Taka Michinoku and George Steele:

The Animal was Taka’s mystery partner, and honestly, he served very little purpose, this match was awful.

Cactus Jack vs. Road Dogg:

Match would end with Chainsaw Charlie making his Federation debut.

Shawn Michaels vs. Owen Hart for the WWF Championship:

Solid match, Triple H would interfere, as he was meant to put the European Championship on the line against Owen before injury happened.


Goldberg vs. Glacier:

Seriously odd to see Glacier getting squashed.

Chris Benoit vs. Van Hammer:

Benoit would win via DQ.

Ultimo Dragon vs. Eddie Guerrero for the WCW Cruiserweight Championship:

Despite Eddie attacking Dragon from behind, Dragon would submit Eddie to win the title in a minute. Booking was kind of odd.

Diamond Dallas Page vs. Mortis for the WCW United States Championship:

Solid match between two members of the Jersey Triad.

Booker T vs. Disco Inferno for the WCW World Television Championship:

Believe this was Booker’s first singles title win.

Lex Luger vs. Buff Bagwell:


Curt Hennig vs. Chris Jericho:

There was a nasty botch from Jericho near the end, and the post match angle hints at a heel turn for Jericho.

Hollywood Hogan vs. Sting for the WCW World Heavyweight Championship:

This was the main event that would decide once and for all who the rightful world’s heavyweight champion is. Problem is, we don’t find out until the first episode of Thunder a week and a half after this because Nitro goes off the air mid match.

Overall, both shows were quite good, but in terms of quality, I may have to go with Raw, though Nitro was close, but that show, for as much of it was good, had some odd booking choices.

On to the Nightly.
