Another treat from the WCW Worldwide blog,
This is a t-shirt (sold at the event, I assume) to commemorate a special episode of WCW Monday Nitro that took place on April 10th, 2000.
It was 14 years ago on this very day that WCW “rebooted” with a special episode of WCW Monday Nitro.
You can read CRZ’s recap of the episode to get an idea of what happened that night if you weren’t following the hot mess that was WCW and didn’t see it live.
This reboot was supposed to fix WCW. It was supposed to be the beginning of a new era for the company where all the dumb stuff we’d had to put up with prior to this point would be completely ignored and everything would start fresh!
But as viewers soon found out, WCW didn’t change. And the world (!) certainly didn’t change as the shirt promised.
You mean a t-shirt lied to me? I’m crushed.
It was really just the same old crap as before.
If you read CRZ’s recaps of the Nitros both preceding and following this attempted reboot, you can easily see how quickly they fell into the same old stupid, boring, inane story lines and characters.
Just under a year after this special episode of WCW Monday Nitro we saw the death of WCW (cheap pop!) as the company was sold to the WWF.
Maybe the slogan on the back of the shirt should have been “The Night The World Changed The Channel”?
