DEADLOCK Podcast: Revisiting WCW Nitro 1997 Sting Drops From The Rafters For The First Time, Macho Man Hijacks Nitro, nWo Souled Out Go Home

The last WCW Nitro before nWo’s first and only PPV, Souled Out 1997! The show opens from the sold-out United Center in Chicago, with Macho Man storming the ring and holding the show hostage. He hijacks Nitro and says he’s not leaving until someone with major stroke comes out. Amidst the chaos, we see intense confrontations with Chavo Guerrero Jr. and others, leading to a thrilling showdown with Sting. Sting comes down from the rafters for the very first time! Also, Masahiro Chono betrayed NJPW and joined the nWo and matches featuring Chris Jericho, the American Males, and a chaotic brawl between Kevin Sullivan and Chris Benoit. Plus, dissension between the 4 Horsemen as they aren’t on the same page. All this and more as nWo hosts Souled Out this Sunday!
