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

From the fall of 1993 to late 1997, Booker T was part of the highly successful team Harlem Heat with his brother Stevie Ray. During that span, the duo won the WCW World Tag Team Championships seven times. Over that period, many fans and experts were starting to notice Booker T for his in-ring style and noted he just needed a way to breakthrough on his own.

When Stevie Ray got injured in late ’97, Booker T was left on his own and he took full advantage of the opportunity. Booker didn’t waste much time capturing gold as a singles wrestler when he defeated Disco Inferno on the December 29th Nitro to win his first WCW Television Championship. It wouldn’t take long for Booker to connect with the fans and often times Booker had the entire arena “raising the roof.” Read more

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
