Tonight we take a look at the August 9th, 1999 episode of WCW Monday Nitro. Chris Benoit would win the United States title, and the Dark Carnival would cause mayhem. But the main story of this show was Hogan solidifying his face turn by going back to the red and yellow. I guess it was bound to happen eventually, but it feels rushed and not very well thought out. Besides, Hollywood was a million times better than red and yellow Hulkamania, at least in my opinion anyway. We also get a stipulation for Hogan/Nash at Road Wild, with the loser having to retire. This stipulation winds up being pointless in the long run, as nobody ever actually thought that Nash or Hogan was going away.
Overall, this was a weak episode of Nitro, and a weak go home show for Road Wild, especially when compared to the other channel that night.
On to the Nightly.
