–Tony Schiavone and Dusty Rhodes are in the booth and they are taped from Atlanta, Georgia. According to thehistoryofwwe.com, these shows were taped on November 16 and 29 at Center Stage.
WCW Prime for December 4 featured a few new matches that will be recapped before WCW Pro.
–Gene Okerlund and Bobby Heenan handle studio duties for today’s show.
–Okerlund talks about a “dark cloud” that lingers over Randy Savage’s world title win at World War 3. Since the company is not building to a Savage-Hulk Hogan match, continually casting Savage’s title win in this fashion is not doing him any favors.
Note: I hope that everyone on the Blog is having a great Christmas holiday today. I have also started a website to archive some of my work here. I will be gradually uploading my 1995 WCW reviews there and all of my reviews for the WWF have been posted and indexed. Check it out at www.wrestlewatch.com. Also, look for information on this year’s Doomies near the end of next week.
WCW Prime for November 27 featured the debut of the Super Assassins in a match that tasked Chris Cruise and Dusty Rhodes with commentating duties.
–Tony Schiavone and Bobby Heenan are calling the matches and they are live from Norfolk, Virginia.
–Gene Okerlund interviews Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage, and Sting. The crowd gives Hogan a mixed reaction as he talks about how he has not fully embraced the dark side and is going back to his babyface persona. He sheds his black gear, which Sting tosses into a black container that explodes. The problem is that the fire gets to be too much, so Sting has to keep going back to the container to pour water on it or keep down the smoke. WCW technicians are eventually forced to put it out. Savage tells Sting that he is cool with him again as Sting acts like a star-struck teenager. Hogan says that Savage’s arm is not actually hurt and goes into a crazy rant about a “rag sheet” that said the Giant was going to win – the rag sheet in question being a copy of Dave Meltzer’s Wrestling Observer – and how the Internet has the “real scoops.” The Observer copy is burned as regular fans at home have no idea what Hogan is talking about.
WCW Prime featured a few new bouts, with Chris Cruise and Dusty Rhodes calling the action. Cruise is dressed as a Puritan woman, while Dusty has male Pilgrim garb. A turkey mascot, also in Pilgrim costume, dances behind them throughout the show.
–Gene Okerlund and Bobby Heenan are in the studio for today’s broadcast. Heenan says that he is rooting for Sting on Monday Nitro because he cannot stand Hulk Hogan. Due to Heenan’s WWF career, that is an awesome piece of character continuity.

WCW Prime for November 6 featured a new match, with Chris Cruise and Dusty Rhodes on commentary.
WCW Prime for October 30 featured some new matches so we will recap those before moving on to WCW Pro. Chris Cruise and Dusty Rhodes called the action on Prime.
–Eric Bischoff, Steve McMichael, and Bobby Heenan are calling the action and they are live from Dayton, Ohio. According to thehistoryofwwe.com, 3,500 fans attended the show, with 2,500 paying for entry.
–Bischoff says that Randy Savage will not face Sergeant Craig Pittman tonight because he was hurt at Halloween Havoc and that Eddy Guerrero will be his replacement. Savage was dealing with a legitimate detached tricep injury so the beating at Halloween Havoc was a convenient way to write him out for the time being.
–Eric Bischoff and Dusty Rhodes are in the booth and they are live from Detroit, Michigan as tonight’s Main Event episode is the pre-show for Halloween Havoc.
–Tony Schiavone and Bobby Heenan are calling the action tonight and they are taped from Atlanta, Georgia. According to thehistoryofwwe.com, these tapings were held on March 22.
