Nitro Report

April 20 1998

We actually got the full three hour Nitro in Canada this week! Hurray for TSN! I fast forwarded through a lot of it because it featured a lot of matches that sucked, and I didn't have much time.

Chris Jericho vs. Juventud Guererra Wow I can't explain how much I love Chris Jericho! He is the best wrestler to come along for a long time. He got Juvi in the Liontamer, but Juvi blacked out instead of giving up. "Oh my god! I killed Juvi!" said Jericho. Funny and and a great wrestler too!

Raven vs. Bill Goldberg Raven is incredible and Goldberg just plain ol' sucks. I give the guy credit, he did better than usual this week. He now has more moves than Hogan! The match went as expected.. Flock interferes, Golderbg impressively jackhammers Reese, then Raven and takes the title. Why would WCW give Raven less than a day for a title reign? Poor Raven.

Benoit vs. Curt Hennig You know that any match that features Benoit will be good. Benoit is the king of wrestling as far as I'm concerned. Rick Rude interferes giving Benoit a DQ win. I would have liked to see Hennig give up to the Crippler Crossface.

Hollywood Hogan vs. Randy Savage What do you know? WCW puts on a match that was not only interesting, but unexpected! Nash comes in to help Savage...yawn...and then, what's this? It's Bret Hart helping... Hogan????! One two three, Hogan wins the title thanks to Bret Hart. I never though I'd be saying that sentence! If this means Bret's a bad guy, GOOD! He has lost so much in his jump to WCW. He needs the "I HATE AMERICA" attitude back.

I didn't see all of it, but from what i saw, I was impressed! WWF's ratings win made WCW stop and think. And it was for the better because this Nitro was a good show! 9\10 for Nitro!
