Trivia

On the April 26, 2000 edition of Thunder, David Arquette became the first non-wrestler to win the WCW World Heavyweight title when he pinned Eric Bischoff in a tag team match (his partner was Diamond Dallas Page; Bischoff's partner was champion Jeff Jarrett). The title win was in reality a publicity stunt for Arquette's WCW based Comedy movie Ready to Rumble (2000). See more »

WCW copies WWE and fails
11 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Thunder was produced for one reason, to capture an audience that thirsted for wrestling on Thursday nights, but since UPN wasn't available on all cable systems, they couldn't get WWE Smackdown. Thunder tried to be different then Nitro, airing on TBS. THough there would be an occasional shock, or shoot style promo, Thunder was overall a lackluster show, featuring many b level wrestlers that weren't ready for prime time. The show was a desperate attempt to stop the momentum the WWE was gaining, and it failed bad. Whereas WCW could have used Nitro to promote it's cruiserwiehgt division, thus using the bigger names to garner ratings and interest could have made the show something. It soon looked like WCW lost all interest in the show, and instead of a prime time show, it would soon feel like it was nothing more then a House show that was dressed up for TV purposes. After a while, UPN was more available, and Thunder was completely forgotten.
