WCW Final Nitro: Where Are They Now

Wanting to start off hot, the opening match of the final episode of Nitro saw WCW World Heavyweight Champion Scott Steiner facing off against WCW United States Champion Booker T in a winner-takes-all contest.

Given how Scotty was happy to sit on his Time Warner deal for the rest of the year, that meant WWE-bound Booker T got the win here.

Big Poppa Pump would spend two years in WWE from 2002 to 2004, and Steiner would go on to have several stints in TNA/IMPACT Wrestling over the subsequent years. Still an active wrestler, Freakzilla most recently competed for the NWA at the start of this year and was then due to make an IMPACT return.

Unfortunately, Steiner collapsed at that IMPACT taping and had to undergo a heart procedure. As a double blow from 2020, Steiner and his wife Christa were forced to close their Shoney's restrauant in August of this year, too.
