The Lawcast - The First Episode of WCW Monday Nitro Is A Template For How To Launch A Wrestling Show



Welcome, boys and girls, to another episode of the Lawcast! This week, in honor of the debut of AEW Dynamite, we're looking back to the only other time in history that a show was debuted in competition with WWE on this scale. Of course, we're talking about WCW Monday Nitro.

One hour. In today's era of long, bloated shows, it's hard to believe that it only took Eric Bischoff on hour to paint his masterpiece, and put the wresting world on notice. And for the first time ever, we're doing a watchalong so you can see it unveil in front of your eyes right alongside us. Especially Cewsh, who has somehow never seen this show before!



Hey guys! If you haven't joined our the Lawcast Patreon yet, here's a look at what's new:

We already have 3 bonus episodes available to our donors, including a look at the rarely seen original pilot of Smackdown, an episode of So You Think You Can? where Steve is forced to try to fix the many, many issues with Starrcade 97, and we just released an episode of The 90s Sports podcast, something that started as a joke, but that people actually gave us money because they wanted to listen to it. You guys are weird and we love you. Sign up to get it all, and our next bonus episode where Cewsh takes his turn in the booking chair and will try to fix the calamitous mess of ECW December to Dismember.

Think of it as hiring us for a job where you only pay us $2.50 an hour. I'm pretty sure that's not even legal, but we'll just keep it between us.
