In a quirk of fate, Dean and Liam look back at the WCW PPV immediately after the last one they covered on the podcast, as the Eric Bischoff/Vince Russo collaboration era presents Spring Stampede 2000.

Although just four weeks separated that and Uncensored, there were so many changes behind the scenes you'd be forgiven for thinking four years had passed. And yet, the co-hosts and special guest Priscilla Queen of the Ring explain why beneath the surface, hardly anything had actually changed at all.

With 14(!) matches on a sub-three-hour show, title tournaments, multi-man melees and more swerves than you can shake a stick at, come and see exactly why the beacon of hope offered by Russo and Bischoff was merely an ignition to burn down the wick of the final candle in the company's existence.

With just six days until Superbrawl VI, World Championship Wrestling embarks on the 'hard sell' (or in their case, somewhat semi-erect) and thankfully also remembers what made most of the first 20 episodes of Monday Nitro enjoyable in the first place.

Randy Savage and Ric Flair make Chris Benoit and Marcus Bagwell look formidable, respectively, in fresh match-ups while The Road Warriors challenge the intriguing pairing of Sting and Lex Luger for the world tag team titles in a main event that manages to wrap up just before it outstays its welcome. Plus, Brian Pillman and Kevin Sullivan launch their bid to confuse the hell out of the live audience as much as possible!

Having looked back at Superbrawl 2000 in the show's early days, Dean and Liam complete the two-month era of 'booking committee' PPVs in between Vince Russo's two brief but wild stints and soon remember that it actually felt like two decades.

The final edition of one of the most infamous PPV show themes of all time comes shortly after the exodus of The Radicals to WWE and sees WCW respond to the changes by main eventing with Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair AGAIN while showcasing such finger-on-the-pulse acts as Brian Knobbs and the Harris Boys.

And joining our long-suffering co-hosts for this wretched mess of a major wrestling event from his own transatlantic self-isolation is Justin Henry of Cultaholic, who is now regretting his decision to take pity on us and join in via Skype.
