As of late, I’ve been checking out some matches on WCW Worldwide circa 2000. It got me thinking about some of the good and bad that WCW 2000 had going on for itself. I know, most people are going to immediately think of all the bad stuff. However, hidden throughout the bad stuff, there was some good things going on. Of course, my definition of good and bad may be different than others, which should make for a good conversation.

I’ll break this up into two parts covering half a year at a time that way there’s not too much text to get through. So, this will cover from January 1st to June 30th, 2000. Lets relive the wacky year of 2000 for World Championship Wrestling. (more…)

By early 1999, Ric Flair was entrenched in a feud with Eric Bischoff, Hulk Hogan and the New World Order over the WCW World Championship that Hogan held. The feud would get far more personal when Ric’s oldest son, David Flair, would team with Ric for a tag match against Curt Hennig and Barry Windham at WCW Souled Out 1999. Remarkably, Daivd and Ric pulled off the victory. However, after the match, David was brutally whipped by Hogan with his weightlifting belt. The incident legitimately upset Ric due to how many times Hogan whipped his son. (more…)
