It’s the first time looking at a WCW magazine, and boy, it’s a long one. There’s some interesting information throughout and plenty of material. (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…)

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…)

It has been revealed in recent weeks that Buff Bagwell is a liar. A month or so ago Bagwell said that he had been talking to Sting and Eric Bischoff about returning to TNA. That ended up not being the case as Bischoff addressed the rumors on Twitter and Bagwell proceeded to do damage control on a radio show claiming that he never said what he had said. Anyway, this got me thinking about Bagwell. (more…)

1993 was a big year for World Championship Wrestling. Ric Flair returned to WCW after being in the WWF for just over a year. They had a lot of good talent to work with and throughout the year had put together some entertaining feuds. So, when Starrcade 1993 happened a lot of people were left disappointed, and I was one of them. Thus, I thought about what I would’ve done to make the show bigger and better. After all, Starrcade was regarded as being WCW’s biggest event of the year.
Before I begin, let me just say that I would’ve done months leading up to the event totally differently. Sid Vicious would’ve stayed with the company and the same goes for the British Bulldog. Also, the Hollywood Blondes wouldn’t have had split up in October. Just thought I’d make that clear as I rebook Starrcade 1993! (more…)
