    Episode 180: WCW Great American Bash 2000

    It's WCW at its very worst! Welcome to the Great American Bash 2000. It was the final GAB from WCW and it was the night Goldberg turned heel and business REALLY went down the toilet. Even though there were other such big names as Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash, Scott Steiner, Rick Steiner, DDP and Sting, there was no stopping the WCW-to-Out of Business train.

    Episode 178: WCW Monday Nitro 06-09-1997

    Episode 178: WCW Monday Nitro 06-09-1997

    One of the most iconic Monday Nitros ever. Loaded with talent and backstage politics, this event, from Boston was, in a nutshell what WCW was all about, and why WCW went crumbling down.
    The lineup was spectacular. Hulk Hogan, the Macho Man, Ric Flair, Roddy Piper, Lex Luger, DDP, Eddie Guerrero, Chris Benoit, the Steiners, Harlem Heat, Dean Malenko, Chris Jericho, a six man cruiserweight event...and more!
    But as Conrad and Tony explain, there was plenty of behind-the-scenes turmoil that hastened the demise of WCW and muddled up the finish of the main event.
    Oh, and look up in the rafters: IT'S STINNNNNGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!

    Here's the link on Impact Plus for the watch-a-long:
    https://www.impactplus.tv/details/_6003449127001
    It's the first edition ever of IMPACT as it aired on FSN on June of 2004.  With such established stars as Shane Douglas, Dusty Rhodes and Jeff Jarrett, the show had plenty of star power.  And with such performers as Elix Skipper, Amazing Red, AJ Styles, Kid Cash, Frankie Kazarian, Bobby Roode and Abyss, the future looked bright for the promotion.
    Well, 16 years later, the promotion is still in business.  And that actually says a lot.  
    Join Conrad and Tony as they go back and watch the very first TNA IMPACT and the impact it had on pro wrestling.

It was a show loaded with talent: AJ Styles, the Rock and Roll Express, Raven, Jeff Jarrett, Amazing Red, Larry Zbyszko, Chris Harris, James Storm, Sonny Siaki, Jerry Lynn, David Flair and Kid Kash.
    After the show, Schiavone left the business and was not heard from again until Conrad Thompson came into his life in 2017. Listen in as Tony watches the entire show for the very first time and tells Conrad the reasons why he walked away from the business and went another direction in his career.

Good Good McGoodington ,

Can't believe it took me so long!

Only just started listening to this, and six episodes in I find it's the best of the Conrad stable. Genuinely funny, great chemistry, more open than Prichard, less contrived than Bischoff, Schiavone comes across as decent, well-natured guy. A really enjoyable, light-hearted look at pro- wrestling history.

Brilliant

My favourite of Conrad’s three current podcasts. Schiavone is GOLD

Simbababy ,

Poor and lacks class

On paper, you would think this podcast would work, given the talent that is present, but it just does not. Tony Schiavone, while being a legendary wrestling announcer, just seems way past all of it. His delivery tends to warble on with sexual references, f-bombs and general nonsense. Gee, I miss the WCW too, but this is just plain sad.
