DEADLOCK Podcast: Revisiting WCW Nitro 1999 The Debut of Seven, WCW World Title Tournament, US Title Texas Tornado Ladder Match

WCW 1999 was a crazy time, especially at the end of the year when Vince Russo came in. This episode of Monday Nitro features the debut of Seven. This has everything you could want: a cool entrance, lots of pyro, a crazy look, and of course a work shoot promo. Dustin Rhodes thinks Goldust sucked and thinks Seven sucks also. One of the most unforgettable segments of all time. Also, WCW is in the midst of a WCW World Heavyweight Championship tournament and quarterfinal matchups take place. Kevin Nash dresses up as the Grand Wizard of wrestling, Bret Hart & Scott Hall wrestle twice, and David Flair stalks Kimberly Page throughout the night. The Main Event features a US Title Texas Tornado Ladder Match. It’s as crazy as it sounds. Everyone and everything had a storyline and it needed to be explained.
