There was once a time when NITRO had gotten so bad that we added a “NITRO Wishes” section to The Balrog’s Lair! Below, you’ll find that entire section laid out for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!
Vince Russo’s Crash TV? Didn’t work. Bischoff’s celebrities? No dice. The WWFE? Too early to tell. What the hell is it going to take to get the WCW back on top of the wrestling game? Here are some Turner-owned WCW NITRO Wishes from Dave Talbert!

The wishes below are brought to you by friend of the lair, Keith Davidson.

- I wish Scott Norton would get on camera more often. He is getting a lot
- I wish I knew what Savage was doing.

interviews!! That guy is great!!

Miller, would get off camera and stay off. That guy isn’t getting a
pop, he never has recieved a pop, and he never will get a pop!!!!!!

getting a push. He isn’t the only one that isn’t getting one.

- I wish Kidman would get the push that he deserves. Oops, he already
- I wish Flair would get back in the ring as soon as possible. Whoooo!!
- I wish the NITRO Girls would wrestle in the main event. Let’s see, a
triple-threat match between Spice, Whisper, and Kimberly. Oh yeah!
- I wish that Hall would go to an AA meeting.
- I wish someone could get chokeslammed from the top of the steel cage.
Oops, wrong fed. WCW isn’t that creative.

the football field!!!!

be going to it.

- I wish Piper would get a life.
- I wish that Dusty Rhodes would please everyone, and retire from WCW
- I wish WCW could put on a ppv at least half as good as a WWF ppv.

nevermind, they would probably ruin them too.
- I wish Eddie Guerrero would get an Oscar for his performance on NITRO.
- I wish they would give Nash a big push!!!!!
- I wish the Warrior would have shook the ropes!!! That’s all I wanted.
- I wish “The Living Legend” wouldn’t keep thinking that he is over with the fans.
- I wish the Balrog would get in WCW and give Goldberg his first loss!!!!! Everyone agree???

- I wish WCW would make up their mind on what they want to do with Sting.
- I wish that WCW won’t let anymore celebrities wrestle at pay-per views and on NITRO.
- I wish DDP would get a hair cut and shave!!
- I wish WCW would kid-nap Stone Cold and bring him on NITRO, then again, they would probably do the same thing to him what they done to Bret Hart.
- I wish WCW will put on a good NITRO on September 7, since I will be attending that one, although the chances of a good NITRO are not possible.
- I wish the announcers would not treat every NITRO like the best NITRO ever or the biggest night ever in our sport. It gets old after a while.
- I wish Rick Rude and Chris Jericho would shave.
- I wish Buff Bagwell would make up his mind if he is paralyzed or not.
- I wish “Eazy E” would drop his “NWO Nightcap”. To me, that show cries,”Please RAW, WIN the ratings war.”
- I wish Goldberg would do an interview!!!!(As I said last week)
- I wish WCW wrestlers would stop using Utah Jazz players to do cameos. Utah blew it two years in a row. That should give you an idea about WCW!!!
- I wish the Ultimate Warrior would make his debut! I’m getting tired of hearing about how his debut has been postponed.
- I wish Nitro would entertain me for once.
- I wish Goldberg would do an interview sometime instead of just snarl and yell like he usually does. Sting has talked more than he has.
- I wish Dean Malenko’s dad would come back from the dead and kick the hell out of Chris Jericho(tell me that wouldn’t get ratings).
- I wish Chavo Jr. and Eddie would go on Springer to settle their family disputes.
- I wish there were more stipulation matches on Nitro. Something like a steel cage or a triple threat match. I mean, hey, it couldn’t hurt!
- I wish Nitro would go back to two hours. So, during the first of three hours, I won’t have to watch someone like Lenny Lane versus Glacier.
- I wish Konnan, Nash, and Sting would do more interviews. I love those guys when they have the mic. Its better than watching Hogan talk about nothing for 10 minutes.
- I wish they would give Rodman a script before they let him get in the ring and talk in the mic. He really sounded stupid the Nitro during the NBA Finals.
