In one of the most anticipated Monday Nitros in recent history, WCW delivered huge in their promise to take over the big apple. Tank Abbot ran over four more victims; David Flair, Crowbar, and Daffney destroyed a wedding reception; and The Total Package broke the arm of Hulk Hogan, sending a message to the Hulkster as the two head on a collision course to this Sunday’s SuperBrawl Pay Per View.
Interview: The nWo
Jeff Jarrett, The Harris Boys, and the nWo girls made their way to the ring. Jarrett got down to business right away, sending the ladies back to the dressing room. He stated that even after all the obstacles that have been thrown in his way; he would still take down Sid at SuperBrawl. Kevin Nash appeared on the screen, but the Harris Boys lifted ring announcer David Penzer in the air, threatening to break his neck if Nash wasn’t taken off the screen. It was taken off, but the Wolfpac music played, and Nash came down the aisle in a wheelchair with two nurses. The commissioner told Jarrett that since no one won last week’s match between Jarrett and Hall, that Hall and Jarrett would go to the PPV to face Sid in a Three Way Dance. He then told the Chosen One he would face Sid later in the night, in a non-title match.

Not to be outdone, Helms and Karagias followed up with dives of their own. Miss Handcock came down the aisle and made her way to the broadcast table. She said Idol and Lane didn’t know what they’re missing by getting rid of her. As the fight waged on in the ring, Miss Handcock let her hair down and danced upon the WCW commentating table. Catching the attention of not only the entire crowd, she had the eye of everyone in the ring as well. As she jumped down and headed to the back, Smiley captured Karagias in the Norman Conquest for the submission win. After the bout, 3 Count, not wanting to disappoint their fans, performed their top 40, with a bullet, hit again.
