The National Wrestling Alliance is attempting to return to national relevance with Billy Corgan as their new owner. Corgan, the lead singer in Smashing Pumpkins, had worked with Impact Wrestling and attempted to buy them, but had no luck.

During that run, Bagwell won the WCW Tag Team Championships five times with four different partners. However, Bagwell never won a singles championship in WCW. In fact, Bagwell never got elevated out of the mid card ranks.
Recently, I had been thinking about the career of Marcus “Buff” Alexander Bagwell and wondered if there was ever an opportunity for him to be a “top guy” in professional wrestling. Thus, I’m going to look throughout his career. Read more
In 1992, the World Wrestling Federation went through a rebuilding phase during the second half of the year. From January to June the company had a lot of high level, marquee names that included Hulk Hogan, Sid Justice, Jake Roberts, and Roddy Piper. However, by the summer all of those men were gone. Essentially leaving them only Ric Flair and Randy Savagr as veteran recognizable names. Read more
