From Starrcade '83 to March 26, 2001, Tony Schiavone was the voice of professional wrestling below the Mason-Dixon Line. Today Tony is the Voice of Major League Wrestling and though the Monday Night Wars may be over you can still relive the memories of Jim Crockett Promotions and WCW on #WhatHappened When every Monday on MLWRadio.com!
If you had to trace the "boom" in popularity in professional wrestling in the late 90s back to a single point, it was the May 27, 1996, Monday Nitro when Scott Hall showed up on Nitro and started what would become the hottest angle in history, the nWo. This was the first ever two hour Nitro, plus Steve Doll vs. the Mauler, Bobby Walker vs. Brad Armstrong, a hilarious new moment in the show for the American Males, a Ric Flair promo even Meltzer was embarrassed by, a tremendously awful angle with John Tenta and Ray Traylor, plus Ham Cubes takes on Sting in the main event of a show that would be otherwise horribly forgettable without Scott Hall. Conrad and Tony debate who was or was not a "stooge" plus they make a tremendous announcement about the future of the show, what's changing, and what new content you can expect very, very soon! Don't miss this very special edition of WHAT HAPPENED WHEN!
