So… what happens when you have a show where two of your top stars are injured, and you happen to fire your main booker 48 hours before the show… oh, and several of your other stars happen to be talking to your opponent? World Championship Wrestling answers that question with their WCW Souled Out 2000 Review PPV.
A completely changed card from the originally booked one greets us, as Chris Benoit takes on Sid Vicious for the vacant WCW World Heavyweight Championship, while Billy Kidman takes on three members of The Revolution in the Triple Threat Theater series. Terry Funk fights Kevin Nash in the third hardcore match of the night, where if Nash loses, the nWo disbands, and if Funk loses, Nash becomes commissioner of WCW.
As always, be sure to stay for the big finish, where we name our best and worst matches of the show and the Cash and Trash of the show.
WCW kicks off their final full year in rousing fashion with a new year, a new champion (which becomes a theme for the year), and a new booker, as Wrestling Unwrapped does a WCW Souled Out 2000 Review.

Patrick Ketza: The Host of Wrestling Unwrapped is never one to mince words, Patrick has spent his whole life growing up in one of the best wrestling cities in the world, Chicago. A fan of all types, Patrick not only follows the big companies, but smaller indie companies as well.
Harry Broadhurst: The Co-host of Wrestling Unwrapped is a thirty year old from Ohio, but a twenty five year long fan of professional wrestling. He started watching with his uncle and his grandpa at the age of five. He is also the play by play voice of Real Action Pro Wrestling based out of Campbell, Ohio.
Sean Garmer: The producer on Wrestling Unwrapped studied Journalism at the University of North Texas. Sean loves pro-wrestling so much that he even trained to be a wrestler at the age of 17. Though he eventually had to quit wrestling to go to college, he still returned to do play-by-play commentary, help write storylines, and most of all, to watch matches. Sean started his love of pro-wrestling at the age of five after watching a Hulk Hogan match. Due to his family hating sports-entertainment, there were many years he missed. However, he returned full-time to being a fan in the late 1990’s. Since then, Sean has gone on to write for various wrestling websites in a number of capacities, but he discovered his true passion, Podcasting, four years ago when he and Gary started the Wrestling 2 the MAX Podcast.
