• Nites of Nitro #12: The Outsiders "Lay Down"

    Oh boy

    Oh boy oh boy.

    The second week of the Russo era, and we have been struck down by technology, illness, back pain and at least one toddler.

    Nevertheless your Thunder Boys return to deliver you a review of another exhausting three hour Nitro (the last Nitro from us for a while), and with that comes with a LOT of doings transpiring:

    *ANOTHER tag title change

    *ANOTHER world title change

    *ANOTHER MAD title change

    *The Outsiders return to in-ring action, in a way...

  • Days of Thunder: Halloween Havoc 1999

    Ending a week of firsts in quite a big way on Days of Thunder. We have covered our first Russo Nitro, our first Russo Thunder (sort of), and NOW it's our first Russo PPV.


    As with all Russo Chapter 1's, this is quite a mixed bag, with some decent action, at least one killer angle, and some absolutely demented bullshit:


    *Sid and Goldberg go to war.


    *What is going on with Hogan?


    *The firm kickoff of World Title hot potato.


    *Brad Armstrong World Police defends the honour of America.

  • Days of Thunder At The Movies Special: Beyond The Mat (1999)

    The time has finally come for the second landmark film in our timeline: the truly warts and all Beyond The Mat. Tune in as Dave and Lee go over their history with the film, some of the things that still resonate today, and elements of it that they view now in an entirely different context. We also manage to squeeze some time in there for some WCW-related news briefs. Enjoy!

  • Days of Thunder #85: Lame Duck

    [Broadcast Date- October 21 1999]


    A bizarre episode of Thunder this one. Dave and Lee are challenged with reviewing a Thunder that was recorded before the full Russo takeover, but broadcast after. So buckle up for two hours of absolutely mental continuity, and a hefty Observer recap to keep us in the loop on an insane week for World Championship Wrestling.

  • Days of Thunder: WCW Fall Brawl 1999

    A hastily arranged PPV is on the docket for Dave and Lee, who struggle to find a consensus on where this show sits on the scale of 'awful' to 'not as bad as other shows'.

    On the pod this week, Dave and Lee talk:

    • A new podcast segment!
    • Many, MANY video packages
    • The Network sends Lee over the edge
    • and a taped Thunder with only FOUR matches, and they aren't long ones.
