    333: WCW Road Wild '97 Deep Dive

    The greatest wrestling week of Nick's life ends with WCW Road Wild '97 live from Sturgis, South Dakota. Lex Luger would lose to "Hollywood" Hulk Hogan, the Steiner Brothers wouldn't win the WCW World Tag Team Championships, and no Sting. So who cares? We do.

    Join us as we dive deep into the famous Sturgis rally this week.

    332 Part 2: WCW Monday Nitro - August 4, 1997 Deep Dive

    332 Part 2: WCW Monday Nitro - August 4, 1997 Deep Dive

    This episode of WCW Monday Nitro is one of Nick's top wrestling shows ever. He recounts how he recorded the replay of this show on VHS, in addition to some other adult-oriented items on that VHS. Hey, we were coming up on WCW's adult-themed pay-per-view, Road Wild, so why not?

    Lex Luger would beat "Hollywood" Hulk Hogan for the WCW Championship on this night, and even though he only held the title for five nights, this show still has one of the greatest moments in wrestling due to many factors. Also, Ted DiBiase joined the Steiner Brothers after leaving the nWo, Curt Hennig and DDP are in the midst of a heated feud, much like Lee Marshall and Bobby "The Brain" Heenan, and so much more on this episode of Nitro.

    331 Part 2: WWF Fully Loaded '99 Deep Dive

    331 Part 2: WWF Fully Loaded '99 Deep Dive

    In what could only be described as divine intervention, this week is our WWF Fully Loaded '99 deep dive courtesy of a Patreon request. It was billed as the End of an Era as if Stone Cold Steve Austin defeated The Undertaker in a WWF Championship First Blood Match, then Vince McMahon would be gone from WWF for good.

    Of course, Austin won. Vince left. For a few days. Then he was back and eventually WWF Champion before the end of the year.

    Take a deep dive with us for Part 2 of episode 331 as we discuss all of that and more from July 25, 1999 in Buffalo, NY as WWF presented Fully Loaded 1999.
