Eddie Guerrero Vs. Dean Malenko
WCW Monday Night Nitro
[October 2nd, 1995]

This match is mistitled as being the first encounter of Eddie Guerrero and Dean Malenko in WCW. The two had actually faced each other once on WCW Saturday Night, but this IS the first time these two locked horns on WCW Nitro. Guerrero and Malenko knew each other well by this point, having met in both Japan and in ECW, where they feuded over the ECW World Television Championship only a few months before this match. This is a great beginning to the feud between “The Iceman” and Guerrero, both of whom would define the fast-paced cruiserweight style that would gain WCW some strong attention.

This Day in WCW History: The TV Title changes for the fifth time in as many days when Booker T defends against Fit Finlay fresh off a weekend of live events that saw him and Chris Benoit trade the gold back and forth, as Benoit arrives at ringside for a closer look at Booker and distracts him long enough for Finlay to take advantage with a tombstone piledriver to win his first WCW World TV Championship on the May 4, 1998 edition of Monday Nitro.


This show was on PPV and the WWF countered with the first Royal Rumble free on USA, a couple of months after threatening PPV carriers with not being able to carry WWF shows if they ran Starrcade ‘87, which Vince had countered on PPV with the first Survivor Series. Vince McMahon just wants nice, friendly coexistence. When mean ol Billionaire Ted came for him it was unfair.
