I was actually excited to watch this, mostly because this was going to be the first WCW episode I watched and I had heard plenty of Nate and Brian’s Keep it 2000 over the last few years to pique my interest, but never had the time.

Boy was I in for a treat. I had to rewind the show maybe 20-25 times as I had no idea what the fuck was actually happening half the time. I didn’t realize Vince Russo was recording Jarret and Steiner until you guys alluded to in the review. I had no idea who like 30% of the characters were. There were 200 scenes with Nash, Russo, Steiner, Jarret where I thought I accidentally slid the player scroll or like WWE messed up the tape while uploading these to the network and spliced the same segment.

And the best part was, I couldn’t remember about 70% of what happened when I woke up the next morning. I typed and removed feedback like 5 times because I couldn’t remember Jack Shit. The real icing was your review. I legitimately bellowed out and spittook twice listening to John’s Exasperation and Wai’s Confusion. I think this is my favourite Rewind-a-Wai ever. This episode of Nitro gets a 6/10 mostly because it was never boring inspite of all the shit, but your review gets a 60/10 for persevering through this car crash and hopefully still coming out sane the other side.

I really enjoyed Wai’s Firefly Funhouse-esque deconstruction of the show long story line surrounding the main event tag match.
