• Final WCW Monday Nitro Aired 17 Years Ago Today
On this day in Pro-Wrestling history on March 26, 2001, the last ever edition of WCW Monday Nitro aired. WWF purchased WCW on March 23, 2001 and ended the Monday Night Wars on this night 17 years ago.
On this edition of Nitro, Booker T defeated Scott Steiner to win the WCW World Heavyweight Championship, while Billy Kidman & Rey Mysterio Jr. def. Elix Skipper & Kid Romeo to win the WCW Cruiserweight Tag Team Titles.
The last ever Nitro match was between Sting & Ric Flair. Sting defeated Ric Flair via submission. Also during this night, Shane McMahon revealed that he has signed the contract and is now the owner of WCW.

• WrestleMania 34 Title Match Outcome Spoiled?
The Belfast SSE Arena posted a tweet to promote a WWE event on May 10th. In their tweet, they possibly revealed the outcome of the Intercontinental Title match at WrestleMania 34 as they pointed out of Seth Rollins would be the Intercontinental Champion heading into the May 10th event.
Below is what they wrote on Twitter (the tweet has now been deleted):
“Finn Balor is ready to defeat Seth Rollins – WWE to become the new Intercontinental Champion on May 10th in The SSE Arena, Belfast!”
While this could be a spoiler for WrestleMania 34, but it could very well turn out to be false information provided by WWE on purpose.
WWE recently did this earlier this year to make fans wonder who’s going to win the Men’s Royal Rumble match when they had an arena post a FastLane 2018 promotional video where the advertised WWE Title match featured Shinsuke Nakamura.
This made fans think that Nakamura might not win the Royal Rumble match because there’s no way he would get a WWE Title match at FastLane that way (as the Royal Rumble winner gets a title shot at WrestleMania).
