WCW World Title Tournament In 1999: First Round

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…. Read more

A little bit of a background before looking at the card. The New World Order is full steam ahead with Hogan, Nash and Hall dominating the company. Sting hasn’t competed in a match since September and was routinely up in the rafters. As you’ll see for the show, there was a lot of changes shortly after the show, which I’ll touch upon. Read more

Slamboree_1999_001

When the Steiner Brothers split up in February 1998 wrestling fans witnessed a long bait and switch between Rick and Scott Steiner. They eventually collided at Halloween Havoc in October of that year and Rick won the singles match. On that show, Rick won the WCW World Tag Team Championships and would have tag partners such as Kenny Kaos and Judy Bagwell (seriously), while Scott Steiner continued to go up the ranks and feud with top WCW stars.

The titles were vacated because Rick suffered an injury and he would return to action on March 1st 1999 but before long he would have singles gold for most of the year. Read more
