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…)

It’s the eighth installment looking back the PWI 500 magazines that have become a popular publication over the years. 1998 saw the WWF get a lead in the ratings war, while WCW was still highly popular. ECW continued to grow throughout the year, as well.

Unlike last year, the number one ranked wrestler is a toss up between a WCW wrestler and a WWF wrestler. There isn’t controversy attached to this years ranking.

Reminder, I don’t look at every wrestler in the magazine, but a full list of the rankings can be found HERE.

The grading period was from August 1st 1997 to August 31st, 1998. (more…)

Ten of the most memorable moments in the career of Scott Hall/Razor Ramon… Are they same on your list?

For myself, I’m going primarily on his run in wrestling from 1992 onwards. Lets be real, his WCW run in ’91 was, well, bad and I’ve never watched his AWA stuff, though his team with Hennig has gotten some praise amongst the people I mentioned this idea to. By the way, this is being written in the order in which it occurred in his career, not in terms of worst to best. So, here we go. (more…)

The tide is beginning to turn on the Monday Night Wars, but WCW still is producing good pay per view numbers and there is still interest in the bouts presented. The following month we finally had the conclusion to the Sting vs. Hogan feud with Sting finally prevailing as the WCW World Heavyweight Champion and his feud with the New World Order continues on. This is the fourth installment of UnCensored which had the premise of there being no rules and anything goes throughout the night.

UnCensored took place on March 15th from Mobile, Alabama. An in-depth review of the show can be found HERE. (more…)

The fourteenth installment of Would You Go To This Show brings us to Little Rock, Arkansas for a World Championship Wrestling live event. The event took place on January 3rd, and has a rather interesting main event.

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. (more…)

November 7th, 2004 marked the first ever three hour live pay per view presented by Total Non-Stop Action. At the time, I had been a supporter of TNA having watched several of their weekly pay per view events during the 2002-2004 run. I would regularly come home from high school to watch their one hour program Impact aired on Fox Sports Net at 3pm. So, naturally I was quite interested in the pay per view and had to order it.

As it would turn out, it would the first and last TNA pay per view I ever bought. I did an in-depth review of the show HERE. (more…)

February 22nd marked the most anticipated rematch in World Championship Wrestling history when Hollywood Hulk Hogan and Sting squared off again for the vacant WCW World Heavyweight Championship.

The event took place at the Cow Palace in California, which was a tradition for Superbrawl starting in 1997. It’s one of the first WCW events I rented on VHS for your random fun fact for the flashback.

Interestingly, there are quite a few top names that aren’t on the show. They include Ric Flair, Bret Hart, Curt Hennig, Dean Malenko, Eddie Guerrero, Raven, and The Giant (injury). Despite all that, it’s still a strong show and a show I remember enjoying very much. (more…)
