Finishing off the year 2000 for WCW in this series. Do you agree with my assessment of what was good and bad during the year? Part one of the series can be found HERE. (more…)

This is what caused the tournament to crown a new WCW World Champion.

At Halloween Havoc 1999, there was a controversial moment where WCW World Champion Sting retained the championship over Hulk Hogan in their anticipated rematch from Fall Brawl. Sadly, Hogan would simply lay down and take the fall allowing Sting to retain. The purpose? I couldn’t tell you. By the end of the night, Goldberg, who won the WCW United States Championship from Sid Vicious earlier in the show, was also the WCW World Champion after defeating Sting in the main event at Havoc.

So, Goldberg is the champion, the top baby face is finally the top champion for the second time in his career. What could go wrong? Well…. (more…)

At the beginning of 2000 World Championship Wrestling face a lot of obstacles, and for the most part they weren’t able to overcome them. WCW World Champion Bret Hart suffered a career ending concussion at Starrcade against Goldberg, thus having to vacate the championship. Goldberg is out due to nearly losing his arm after suffering a gash when he punched a limo on Nitro. Bret was scheduled to defend against Sid Vicious on the show.

WCW United States Champion Jeff Jarrett suffered injuries on January 10th and thus couldn’t defend against Chris Benoit in a three stages of hell match. Instead, Billy Kidman would compete against three different opponents in the matches.

Despite the two major injuries, WCW tried the best they could to present Souled Out on January 16th from Cincinnati, Ohio. (more…)

marty-jannetty

Back in January, I wrote an article talking about how often times a tag team will have a ‘Marty Jannetty’ of the team. For those who don’t get the reference, it dates back to the early 1990s when Jannetty and Shawn Michaels broke up after being the Rockers for several years and Shawn Michaels went on to have incredible success while Jannetty was seemingly forgotten about. The interesting part of it is that Jannetty was a good wrestler but had demons in his life (drugs, alcohol) that prevented him from having any substantial singles career highlights.

I decided to take a look at five more tag teams that fall into the same category where one person in the tag team goes on to have success while the other ends up fizzling out or just doesn’t connect with the fans in a singles role. (more…)

Welcome to the third installment of Would You Go To This Show? This time around, myself, Matt and Brandon head to the Cow Palace in California for some World Championship Wrestling action. The show took place on August 20th, 1999. The main event featured a dream match of sorts.

But first, let’s start with the opening bouts and work our way through. We are going to try a new format here, so let’s see how this works. (more…)
