WCW Souled Out 2000
Today in 2000, WCW held its fourth and final edition of Souled Out from Cincinnati Ohio.
Bret Hart had vacated the WCW World Heavyweight Title a few days before this event due to a severe concussion received at Starrcade and this left WCW to move Chris Benoit into main event against #1 contender Sid Vicious for the WCW World Title.
Arn Anderson was the "Special Guest Referee". WCW would strip Beniot of the belt the next night on Monday Nitro when he submitted to the crippler crossface. In reality Beniot had quit WCW out of frustration with Bischoff and others "in charge" and would debut in the WWF within the next few weeks.
