Rebooking WCW from 1995 to 2001

Discussion in 'Be The Booker' started by PowerThatBe, May 11, 2016.

  1. Hello guys, as you can see from thread title, I'm going to re-book WCW in Monday Night Wars timetable. I hope you will enjoy it :)
  2. WCW Monday Night Nitro - Monday, September 4th, 1995
    This is the very first episode of WCW Nitro, in an attempt to overtake the struggling WWF product. These initial versions of Nitro were all live, one-hour shows.

    Originally, Eric Bischoff/Mongo/Bobby Heenan were doing commentary, but having in mind Mongo's ugly commentary skills, he will not be commentating. It's only Bischoff and Heenan.

    Live from Minneapolis, Minnesota, Mall of America.

    1st Match: “Flyin'” Brian Pillman Vs Jushin “Thunder” Liger. Highlights of the match:

    • Liger with a somersault moonsault onto Pillman on the floor.
    • Pillman with a suplex on the floor.
    • Liger attempts a German suplex but Pillman reverses into a rollup… 1-2-3

    Winner: Brian Pillman. I haven't changed this match, because in my opinion, it wasn't only the best match of the night, but it also was the best what happened on the show that night.


    2nd Match: Ric Flair Vs U.S Champion Sting, for the Title. Highlights of the match:

    • No Gorilla Press Slam's from Sting, maybe at least one, cover, 2-count..
    • Arn Anderson interferes, distracts Sting, Flair low blows Sting from behind, rolls him up, 1-2.. STING KICKS OUT!
    • Flair places Sting in the Figure Four leg lock and Sting is trying to turn over, Flair has the ropes, and has to break the hold, but ref didn't saw it and Sting taps out to Flair.
    Winner, and NEW U.S Champion: Ric Flair. After the match, Arn Anderson comes in to the ring, to congratulate Flair, and after raising his hand up, clotheslines him to hell.. The match itself was poor, Sting selled moves poorly, if selled at all..

    Scott Norton makes his debut by coming to the commentary area and Savage comes from behind and challenges Norton to a fight next week. Norton accepts.

    Clips of what Sabu has done in ECW is shown… he will be making his TV debut next week.


    3rd Match: WCW World Heavyweight Champion Hulk Hogan w/Jimmy Hart vs Big Bubba Rogers for the Title. Highlights of the Match:

    • Rogers sends Hogan into a corner and charges, but Hogan gets a boot up, which totally missed Rogers so they did it again.
    • Rogers slides to the outside and begins to stalk Jimmy Hart. Hogan takes advantage of that, and attacks him from behind.
    • Hogan with a scoop slam, 2 elbow drops and a boot scrape.
    • Hogan begins to “Hulk Up”
    • Hogan with right hands, goes for the Big Boot and Leg Drop of Doom, but Rogers catches Hogan coming off the ropes and hits a side slam. 1-2..3!!
    Winner, and NEW WCW World Heavyweight Champion: Big Bubba Rogers!! What an upset! After the match, Dungeon of Doom comes in to the ring to attack upset Hogan, which was about to shake Roger's hand. Randy Savage runs in to equalize situation, but gets beat down too.. and then LEX LUGER shows up, and single handedly beats Dungeon of Doom out of the ring. Luger takes mic and says: "I'm sick and tired of playing with little boys... I WANT TO PLAY WITH THE BIG BOYS!". Savage looks a little bit suspicious about this. Luger says, I want a World Title shot next week! Shakes hands with Rogers and they agree to a Title Match next week, but Hogan says, I'm using my rematch clause, so it's going to be a TRIPLE THREAT MATCH next week live on Nitro.

    And that's it for this episode.

    Let me know, what do you think about this episode, what would you do differently and etc. :)

    Hogan/Luger/Rogers headline this week's one-hour Nitro…

Flair says that Anderson is not worth a shot. Anderson runs in to the ring, but Flair escapes to locker room.

    And that's it for tonight's show

    Mean Gene interviews Flair backstage about his upcoming title defense.

    Originally, next match was Sgt. Craig Pittman Vs Cobra, but I'm going to replace Cobra with Dean Malenko. Squash match, about 2 - 3 mins long, Malenko wins. Just a filler match, to hype and give momentum to Malenko, and I'm giving the fans what they want.

    Video of Paul Orndorff throwing a fit after losing to Randy Savage

    3rd Match: WCW World Television Championship - The Renegade(c) w/ Jimmy Hart Vs "Diamond" Dallas Page w/Maxx Muscle. And I'm adding to the mix none other than.. Eddie Guerrero!. So now it's a Triple Threat Match. Match Highlights:

    • Buck gets the tag, double boot to the head and both club Booker on the back.
    • Stevie Ray goes for the Big Splash on to Slater, Nasty Boys interfere and attack Harlem Heat.
    Winners by DQ: Harlem Heat. I know that putting the titles on Harlem Heat should be a no-brainer, but I want to give cheap heat to Buck/Slater, add to the mix Nasty Boys as heels, and let Harlem Heat pursuit the titles, get lots of momentum, get the crowd absolutely behind them, and make them greatest tag team of the year.

    After the Match, Mean Gene interviews Harlem Heat, they said that Nasty Boys are going to pay, for what they've done, and after that, we're going to get those Tag Titles.

    Promo for Halloween Havoc.

    • Arn signals for the DDT, but Flair hangs onto the ropes and does the Flair Flop.
    • Flair goes for the figure four but Arn blocks it for a second by catching Flair's leg with his hand. But Flair eventually gets the hold on. Flair spits at Arn, and that gives Arn motivation as he tries to reverse and does. Flair lets go of the hold.
    • For some reason, Pillman interferes, punches Flair, Flair punches him back, turns around and walks right into a DDT, 1-2-3.
    Winner, and NEW U.S Champion: Arn Anderson. Yep, Pillman push continues.

    Video package of Hogan/Savage/Sting

    Hogan/Savage/Sting are getting interviewed by Gene Okerlund. They say that they have a little surprise for DoD.

    Main Event: WarGames. Hogan/Sting/Savage make their entrance, stops near ring apron, and then Vader music hits.. They found their 4th partner. So now it's Hogan/Sting/Savage/Vader vs Luger/Meng/Kamala/Shark. Other members of DoD interfered a lot outside of the ring. At one moment Vader accidentaly hits Savage with elbow. Luger pins him to win the match. After the match Hogan attacks Sullivan, launches him into the cage wall, but The Giant makes the save and chokes out Hogan. Hogan's neck possibly can be broken.. DoD stands tall at the end of the show.

    And that's it for Fall Brawl 95. Hope You enjoyed it.

    I think, we're finally getting some bigger ratings at this point. We're getting more noticed. Overall, it's not a bad show... It's getting pretty good, actually.

    But that's just my opinion. Let me know what do you think in the comments.

  12. First I'll start off with the formatting. While it is not awful, I would like to see a little more to keep your shows from looking like a block of text. Also, I know that you are rebooking what you would do, but I don't think you need to say what originally happened, just stick with your version. I would also like to see a little more detail in some of your segments. For example, one of your shows you only wrote Ric Flair is interviewed. What exactly did he say? How was the match hyped up?

    As for your storylines, they are interesting. I like what you are doing in all of them and look forward to seeing where they go. Just fix some of the problems above and this will should be a successful BTB for you! :)
  13. I say you do a ppv with wcw vs wwe stars
  14. Thanks for the advices, mate! I'll try to improve :)

    So, I've changed my format a bit, but now it will take more time to book one show, so from now on, it's gonna be divided in parts. So this is a part 1. To be continued..

    P.S I need a little help from someone, who can write a dialogues for segments, like this Vader/Savage above. PM me if you're interested.
