Monday Nitro from 7-29-96
Hulk Hogan is officially a bad guy and WCW is now in the driver's seats for Monday night ratings. The angle they did on this show created real life chaos and was masterfully done. Of course Hog Wild was the next PPV but they were really building towards Clash of the Champions with Hogan vs. Flair and what many believed to be Horsemen vs. nWo at War Games in September. This week Eric explains the difficulties of shooting outdoors, why it was done here at Disney, what restrictions they had on WCW, why Turner couldn't care less during this month, and specifically what challenges were presented with doing production for WCW shows. And of course everyone has to give "props" to the "Macho Man" for committing to a scene the way no one ever has before on this show! Support us on Patreon for even more content from Eric & Conrad for just $9!

Hog Wild 1996
A motorcycle rally in tiny town in South Dakota with no building and oh yeah you can’t sell tickets—perfect spot for a PPV, right? Eric Bischoff thought so, but why? Head the story of how Hog Wild came to be and what the “end game” for the show really was for Turner. Get “into the weeds” about the business side of WCW in a way that’s never been discussed before! Plus the guys tackle the “rumor and innuendo” about the Harlem Heat at this event, why the name was changed, who was supposed to be in Beefcake’s spot, Heenan drinking before shows, who dressed Tony Schiavone, and what may have been “off” about Hulk Hogan that night.   Support us on Patreon for even more content from Eric & Conrad for just $9!

Goldberg Beating Hogan on Nitro - 20 Year Anniversary
WCW had it's best week ever, this week 20 years ago! Join Eric and Conrad as they examine the first part of that phenomenal week when Goldberg defeated Hogan for the World Title in front of the largest cable audience to ever see wrestling and a record house at the Georgia Dome! But should it have been on Pay Per View? Why was it on free TV? Would Vince McMahon have given it away for free? Was Eric's job in jeopardy? Whose idea was it to have Hogan drop the title? Why was it only announced four days ahead of time? Would it have happened had the WWF not been winning the ratings war? Who no-showed the event?

Great American Bash 1998
Eric wasted no time getting fired up at Conrad and the yelling was early and often in this one. Eventually the guys get around to discussing Dennis Rodman coming into WCW, Eric changing the schedule around for the boys, the end of the Orlando syndicated tapings, first day ticket sales for the Georgia Dome Nitro, the Jerry Sags lawsuit, the drug testing policy in more detail, what match Eric thinks you could put up against any Monday Night War era match, the silliness of Juventud's video on this show, poor Ron Reis, the horrible finishes on this show, what Doug did to ruin a match for Eric, Eddie's improv on this show, what made Eric sad about this show, why the Hogan/Bret tag didn't work, the thing Eric's wife could do better than these guys did, the silliness of a singles match for the tag titles, the Giant smoking, and Eric buries a guy to the point Conrad shuts the show down!

Clash Of Champions 23
Bill Watts is out and Eric Bischoff is in. Clash 23 was one of the first major shows on Eric's watch so Conrad grills him about the state of the company. How did Eric apply for the job? What did it pay? Who did he interview with? What did he want to change? What could he change? Why was Jim Ross out? How was his stunt with the radio station and exodus to the WWF handled? The guys also discuss Tully Blanchard not coming in, Paul Roma becoming a Horsemen, Shane Douglas leaving, Vader being in the hospital just days before this show, why WCW ran MSG in 1993, the Flair for the Gold set, how they got the Sylvester Stallone rub, and of course they break down a card that featured the return of Ric Flair!

Dusty Rhodes
From the first time he saw Dusty Rhodes on TV for the AWA through the entire WCW fun, Eric Bischoff breaks down his relationship with the American Dream. Conrad takes Eric through a timeline of their time together in WCW from when Eric was hired until WCW went out of business in 2001. Along the way they discuss Vince McMahon, Jim Herd, Ole Anderson, Bill Watts, and even Vince Russo. Eric discusses what a great family man Dusty was to what a creative genius he was as well. The guys also break down the uncomfortable discussions of when Dustin was fired or Dusty was replaced as booker. Why did Eric turn Dusty heel? And of course the guys have a few laughs along the way. Shockmaster anyone? But stay tuned til the very end because Eric has something that leaves Conrad speechless, which you thought would never happen!

The DX Invasion & Challenging Vince
On April 13, 1998, the WWF finally broke the WCW Monday Nitro win-streak of 83 Weeks. WCW bounced back the next week but the following week was perhaps the most memorable moment in the Monday Night War - the "DX Invasion" of Nitro at the Norfolk Scope. Eric Bischoff and Conrad Thompson discuss the events leading up to that night, what most have forgotten about Nitro that night, the silly detail everyone likes to embellish, and how everyone remembers the events of that day. Kevin Nash, Booker T, and Chris Jericho have all told their story, but what does Eric remember? The result is a hilarious meltdown and shouting match between Eric and Conrad. In hindsight, what would Eric change? What didn't he like about it? What was the key to this entire angle that Eric thinks is really overlooked in the scheme of things? When the WCW offices were "invaded" later, Eric had to respond on air and did so with a challenge to Vince McMahon. Who did Eric consult with before doing so? What did Meltzer think of that move? Conrad breaks down the challenge on Nitro, McMahon's public statement on the website, and Eric reading the letter from the WWF's attorney on Thunder before discussing the silly Slamboree display. They close the story with the lawsuit that WCW filed against the WWF that really gets swept under the rug and then as your main event: Conrad calls "BS" on Eric's Bret Hart 1996 story from two weeks ago.

Bash At The Beach 2000
After Bischoff was sent home, the Turner brass turned to Vince Russo to take the reigns of WCW.  By the time Bischoff returns the power dynamic in Turner had shifted yet again. What were the terms of Bischoff returning? What was his day-to-day role within the company? How did Russo react to Bischoff being back? It became a tangled mess with a television company losing money on a wrestling product they very likely didn't understand in the first place. The guy who turned a profit for WCW for the very first time is back, but things are different both corporately and creatively. And of course we can't forget that one guy is in the middle of all this, the biggest star in history: Hulk Hogan. He has creative control and Bischoff's ear, Bischoff has the ear at Turner, yet somehow things don't go as planned at Bash at the Beach. What was the original plan? What was Russo suggesting? Who veto'ed his idea? How was the compromise made for what did make the air? Who knew what, when? What did Jarrett think? How did Booker T fit into all of this? Many guess when the "beginning of the end" was for WCW, but one thing is for sure: this is the end of Hulk Hogan in WCW. You won't believe the decision Turner made, the lawsuits that followed, and the financial ramifications of one night. It's long, strange, crazy story about ego and the power struggle it created that helped ruin what was the biggest wrestling company in the world -- this is Bash at the Beach 2000 Subscribe to our YouTube: www.83weeks.com Ask Eric questions LIVE on Twitch at www.twitch.tv/83weeks Follow us on Twitter: @83weeks Like us on Facebook: facebook.com/83weeks Buy a shirt and get a call from Eric: www.EricBischoff.com Find tons of new merch at BoxOfGimmicks.com  Own a home for less than your current rent: www.HideFromRent.com

The infamous "Finger Poke of Doom"
Hulk Hogan has said the "Finger Poke of Doom" was the "beginning of the end of WCW," and no one really disagreed with him... or did they? Find out what Eric Bischoff thinks of this angle with the benefit of nearly 20 years hindsight.  We address the rumor that Goldberg shot down the first idea for his angle with Liz and how Eric thinks Goldberg and Liz did in their acting roles that night.  Plus Conrad presses Eric to defend the silliness of a "Hogan running for President" angle, clarification on Kevin Nash's role behind the scenes, why Eric put him in that position, when the plan was in place to hand Hogan the title, who got Goldberg a 1000% raise from WCW, an incredible story you've probably never heard before about a huge mainstream deal Turner turned down, and a tidbit about a word you couldn't say on WCW TV that you just will not believe! Of all the things on this episode to discuss, only one decision made that night really mattered and it led to 600,000 folks changing the channel. Conrad breaks down "butts in the seats" in detail and makes Eric has to own it.  Oh and Eric buries two legends in the business to the point it leaves Conrad speechless. Eric is fired up and ready to breakdown the FINGER POKE OF DOOM!
