In the early 1980s, Hulk Hogan was the money man for the World Wrestling Federation. Children, young adults and adults all bought into Hulkamania when Hulk Hogan defeated the hated Iron Sheik to win the WWF World Championship on January 23rd, 1984. For the next eight years, Hogan remained the top face in the company. Vince McMahon tried to phase Hogan out in 1990 by pushing the Ultimate Warrior to the WWF World Championship, but by WrestleMania VII in 1991, Hogan was back on top. (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…)

On November 26th, 2000 Scott Steiner won his first and only WCW World Heavyweight Champion. Steiner had been one of WCW’s most over heels dating back to early 1999. However, that was at a time when Hogan, Flair, Nash and Bret Hart were all playing a political game. By November 2000, Hogan was gone from WCW forever, Flair wasn’t active, and Bret Hart was on the sidelined with his career ending concussion. There weren’t a lot of options for WCW. (more…)
