This Day In Wrestling History- January 4th Trivia 1999- The Monday Night Wars continued, with WWF Monday Night Raw defeating WCW Monday Nitro in the ratings: 5.7 to 5.0. This was the WWF Raw that saw Mankind win the WWF Title, & that Tony Schiavone had given away the result live on WCW Nitro, as Raw had been taped on 12/28/99. 2007- WWE signed 3rd generation star Nattie Neidhart, whom would debut on the main roster as Natalya. She’s the granddaughter of Stu Hart, & daughter of Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart 2010 – TNA Impact featuring the debuts of Eric Bischoff & Hulk Hogan goes head to head with Raw featuring the return of Bret Hart. The ratings were excellent for both shows, Raw with 5.6 million viewers (their highest since August 2009), & Impact with 3.1 million (their highest ever, by quite some margin). Impact would continue to go up against Raw on Monday nights, but lost the war badly and moved back to Thursdays in May Events Every year on January 4th, New Japan Pro Wrestling hold a show at the T ...
WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has a new blog up on his website. Here's the wrestling portion of the blog: “The last Monday Night Raw of 2013 was unique in many ways including not having a full compliment of talent due to also promoting a live event Monday night in Toronto. Good to see a full house in Richmond, one of the old, Mid Atlantic Wrestling territory towns and one of the first cities I worked after joining Jim Crockett Promotions back in the day. I vividly recall bradcasting NWA Pro Wrestling with Bob Caudle and going on first which was then followed by the 'A' show, Worldwide Wrestling, with Tony Schiavone and David Crockett which was then followed by an advertised 'dark match.'” “Solid opening bout on RAW with Punk vs Rollins. I was expecting more as I enjoy both talents' skills even though they are both at much different places in their respective careers. Punk is as good as there is and Rollins wants to be there some day. Seems like there is an awful lot of in show, non wrestling, content . ...

Closing the night out with some old school NWA wrestling with a young and Tony Schiavone on commentary. Good stuff.
Tony Schiavone look like he been throwin em back! 😆😂
I am tired of everyone slamming Tony Schiavone for saying every night was the most important night. He was just living in the moment.
So after playing WWE2K14 I went back and watched the 1990 Royal Rumble, it boggles my mind that Tony Schiavone called it
who was better to work with ? Gorilla Monsoon or Tony Schiavone ?
I'll wait for the rack to be in place before I go Tony Schiavone on the call
.first act after buying TNA will be hiring Tony Schiavone. "Today is the greatest day..in the history of our sport!"
I'd like to see a doc on the announcers. Tony Schiavone, Mike Tenay,

Happy Birthday to former WCW Announcer Tony Schiavone who turns 56 today.
don't remember him doing wrestling. I must have been watching Tony Schiavone call matches instead.
If you insult Tony Schiavone he will become a child and not know how to take a joke.
Tony Schiavone: "Don't try this in your backyard.". Bobby Heenan: "Try it in your living room. it's more fun!"
Tony Schiavone "I'm sure a liar has to make a living like everyone else.". Bobby Heenan "That's why we're here."
BTW, Part 14 was deleted; it featured Tony Schiavone being given (and reading) a telegram (
I was wondering where is tony schiavone and will he ever be a color commentator for Raw or Smackdown?
Also, and Tony Schiavone being forced to imply that WCW just killed Abdullah the Butcher in an electric chair for a match.
WCW is trending. It's for Woman Crush Wednesday. I haz a sad. As does, one assumes, most of the surviving nWo and Tony Schiavone.
The Espn crew talking about arod during this good baseball game reminds me of tony schiavone talking about the nwo during eddy/juvy matches
"The du rag is off!" - Tony Schiavone, announcer extraordinaire
"Is 2 Cold Scorpio the first man to wrestle with a du rag?" - Tony Schiavone
Lmao 2 Cold Scorpio is killing me in this match. Tony Schiavone providing superb commentary.
.I can't be certain of this until I hear it from Greatest Day/Night Expert Tony Schiavone...
Vince McMahon and Jerry Lawler may be the worst commentary team in wrestling history not to have Tony Schiavone
89 is so good Tony Schiavone's commentary has absolutely no adverse affect on it.
the best part of watching old Nitro matches is tony schiavone letting me know what's happening with the NWO in EVERY ONE OF THEM
Video: Halloween Havoc 1993 intro. The one where Tony Schiavone murders four kids, bakes his wife into...
Tony Schiavone is calling a game tonight for the Gwinnett Braves, who are 48-65 & losing 11-3 to Durham.But it's still better than 1999 WCW.

just thinking how it would be if Dusty Rhodes, Bobby Heenan and Tony Schiavone were the congress commentators
I miss Tony Schiavone as a commentator imagine him Jerry Lawler and Jim Ross doing commentary for RAW.priceless!
30 Day WWE Challenge - 16. Favourite Announcer I assume this means commentary person, because I very much don't care about Lillian Roberts Chimel Fink. My absolute FAVORITE commentary person is Tony Schiavone. WCW ran a VERY tight ship commentary wise, and that was all based on him. I know lots of people hated him, but I really do not understand it. He constantly set things up in a "real sports" way that always made matches better. Unlike Cole and Lawler who will just say "that's one of the greatest things I've ever seen!" or "vintage Eve" all the time, Schiavone would make real calls. If a wrestler botched a spot, he'd come up with a reason for it, on the fly. If a guy kicked out of a move they normally wouldn't, Schiavone would talk about how there was less torque, or how he was able to get his hand on his chest to help him push off, or other things. It was all things on the fly he could never have rehearsed, and I loved it! It made every match feel REAL! Which is a gift, and a skill. Also, he ...
It's been a long time now but its still weird to hear Tony Schiavone on the radio.
Calling "yodeling during the break" incredible is starting to encroach Tony Schiavone Nitro territory.
Instantly heard that in the same tone as Tony Schiavone saying "Scott Steiner has a microphone."
Tony Schiavone had a great squeal. Not as good JR's but he did the horror stuff well. Especially when with Heenan
rich eisen types the way bugs bunny plays the piano. tuned out to discussion like Tony Schiavone used to be
Real question is whether the shoes you wear tonight cost more than Tony Schiavone's house.lol
Tony Schiavone is a baseball announcer now? What? I just kind of assumed he disappeared with wcw
Of course its 2013. If it was 1997, Tony Schiavone would be announcing, not Tenay.
Here's another odd thing: the Summerslam Jam has a small snippet of Tony Schiavone saying "World Wrestling Federation"!
Tony Schiavone say every night in WCW was the greatest night in our sport!
Pasch reminds me of Tony Schiavone when he used to sit in between Dusty Rhodes and Bobby Heenan during Nitro broadcasts
Better if it were Arn or Ole MT Gainesville HS v Miller Grove for 5A boys champ & radio call by Tony Schiavone & Gene Anderson
Well I've been home for two weeks tomorrow. I can't thank everyone enough for the well wishes, the visits, the compliments, etc etc. Just have faith y'all, the future is bright. A special nod to Kelley Whipple Raunec Bob Raunec, Karen Whipple Jacklynne Johnson Jeff Raunec and Tony Schiavone for being an amazing immediate family and showing me what love is all about. To Eric Schnibbs for being the most generous boss I've had in a long time. We'll be making waves soon enough. Renee Williams Matt Williams Michael Barbieri and Kimmy Walusko for being some of the best friends a guy could have! Another big thank you to everyone that got me through those 8 months, espcially the one who did the most, you know who you are! I'll always be your Snape! Night All!
Monday Nitro – October 20, 1997: The Streak Had To End Sometime Monday Nitro Date: October 20, 1997 Location: Mississippi Coast Coliseum, Biloxi, Mississippi Attendance: 5,950 Commentators: Mike Tenay, Larry Zbyszko, Tony Schiavone, Bobby Heenan We’re finally at the go home show for Halloween Havoc and the show is on the hottest streak it’s been on since it first started. We’ve had three weeks straight of good to excellent show and hopefully things continue in that direction from here. After last week it’s very clear that Sting vs. Hogan is coming in the very near future but tonight it’s the final push towards Hogan vs. Piper in the cage. Let’s get to it. We open with the NWO b-team laid out in the back. We see the letters DDP spray painted on various things along with Piper t-shirts and ball bats on the ground. In the arena Hogan and Bischoff storm the ring, yelling about improper leadership from Piper and various other things in general. Hogan calls it a bunch of crap and Savage joins in f ...
Monday Nitro – October 13, 1997: Sting’s Army Monday Nitro Date: October 13, 1997 Location: Ice Palace, Tampa, Florida Attendance: 12,000 Commentators: Mike Tenay, Tony Schiavone, Bobby Heenan, Larry Zbyszko It’s one of the last shows before Halloween Havoc and WCW has been on fire lately. The main match tonight is a tag title defense with the Outsiders fighting a team to be announced. If they don’t defend the belts, they’ll be stripped of the titles. Not that it took forever to get them to defend the stupid things or anything like that though. Let’s get to it. Here are Hogan (sans belt), Bischoff and Savage to open the show. Bischoff plugs Hogan’s new movie Assault on Devil’s Island and takes jabs at Raw for not being live. Yeah Eric I wouldn’t compare my show to 1997 Raw. Oh and Savage is in a neckbrace because of the Diamond Cutter last week. Hogan wants Piper to give him his belt back (Piper took it when he was running from Hogan and Bischoff last week) and that’s about it. We see ...
According to Tony Schiavone, this is greatest WCW Monday Nitro quiz in the history of Sporcle.

This is the Raw where Foley faced Rock for the title, and the same date that Tony Schiavone spoiled the result of the match.
Swagger vs Del Rio at Mania. To quote Tony Schiavone yrs ago: That'll really put butts in the seats!
The mailman from Back to the Future 2 just delivered a letter from '96 from Tony Schiavone. "Is the PPV sponsored by Slim Jim?" GREAT SCOTT!
I'm still waiting on the Tony Schiavone documentary.
Folks, I know it's long been fashionable to trash Tony Schiavone, but he's always been leagues ahead of Mike Tenay.
