  1. I guess this isn’t the Snapchat or Instagram crowd really but surely everybody has seen those things on there where you can give yourself dog ears or coon eyes or whatever. Well 1 of them is this lovely silver mask with the eyes cut out believe it or not.
  2. Who remembers Paul Heyman name dropping Thunder and Lightning in that unintentionally hilarious shoot style interview he did in (gasp) 1995 I think? The NWO Sting worked regularly from the time he debuted. NWO Japan was a huge thing over there and he was 1 of the big names. He had a good run in WCW for several weeks too, and was 1 of those guys who could be plugged in any time afterwards. I always thought Sting vs The NWO Sting would have been the closest thing to Sting vs The Undertaker had they done it right. Unfortunately that eliminates most ideas when applied to WCW. Pittman vs Cobra was gold cartoon era stuff. Unfortunately it came along to late. Pittman coming out dressed as black Rambo that 1 night looked legit scary I’ll dang sure give him that. EDIT: does anybody have a link to that time he came out dressed as Rambo? Or remember who Cobra was wrestling so that I could look it up? It might have been Cobra’s last match as I don’t remember anything happening again until Pittman started looking for managers. Cobra was wrestling and after the match Pittman appeared with a gun and a bullet bandolier, war paint, and just the whole get up. The announcers plugged that their feud obviously wasn’t over and they faded out from Pittman looking like a monster.
  3. How about that Superman (the first ever show in black and white with Richard Reeves) episode where Superman busts up a crooked rasslin show complete with insider references? That show was also infamous for another reason that I can’t remember but I know I read it. I want to say several famous wrestlers had cameos and that it’s all that’s left of them on tape. Then that Love Boat one with Hogan I can’t believe him and Vince were down with that. And David Schultz lol
  4. I’m not sure but anything is possible on this subject for sure. Sabu as Magnum lol wow!
  5. I liked the hot take idea above. Here are 10 of mine. 10 guys who weren’t always perfect, but always a pleasant surprise whenever they popped up. It stills applies when they appear every now and then on DVD or something. Raven The Headhunters }any of SST/New Wild Samoans } them Tracy Smothers Steve Strong Cactus Jack Abdullah the Butcher (forgetting his pathetic, controversial recent times) Kamala The Angel of Death David Schultz Wow when you try to do a list of dark horses it ends up heavy on the sports entertainment/gimmicky/crazy end. Doing straight working like this is hard because did, say, Tommy Rodgers have that fewer many good matches than, say, Chris Benoit? No...they’re just not all a click away.
  6. I don’t agree had the Giant been made a real heel, big man champion. Proof is actually in the NWO storyline as Luger’s win over him was it’s pinnacle. It was impossible with Hogan running things sure but that wasn’t the point. Meanwhile the NWO storyline, as great as it was, amounted to crap on payday. The NWO storyline was like going on the trip of a lifetime then crashing into an iceberg and dying. I’d have rather just not went lol!
  7. I don’t know who the best are or whatever but here are the 10 I like watching the most. Sting Chris Benoit Scott Steiner Ric Flair Bret Hart Ricky Morton Shawn Michaels Hayabusa RVD Muta And this changes often for no reason
  8. What if The Giant would have beat Hogan clean at Halloween Havoc? That’s like asking what if water wasn’t wet I know but the answer to that would have been...whatever WCW would have wanted. They would have had out of the giant man gimmick what everybody before tried to get out of it - a truly unbeatable Giant. He could have been champion for years and whoever beat him could have been the next Hogan.
  9. I recently stumbled across a Sid promo from his final days in WCW and he said his I Will Rule The World catchphrase that became famous in the WWF. I didn’t know it officially debuted in WCW! He was fun I don’t care what anybody says.
  10. I voted draw for those I wouldn’t know about. I voted for Bret over Flair but it’s closer than people might remember. I think I mentioned it in another thread recently but Flair was smooth on the mat for a long time, and he did a ton of other moves for a long time. And he was ace at it. His prime was until 1987, with the last 3 freaking years of it being somewhat sabotaged by only wrestling Dusty, Nikita, and Ronnie.
  11. I thought there was a whole other “Magnum TA” not just Magnum. But things run together in our heads when it comes to the oldest wrestling memories. Eddie Gilbert would have worked as The Black Scorpion storyline wise imo. Eddie was Meng, Bobby Eaton, etc. He could be jobbed out but he was still Eddie f****** Gilbert. And it made sense going no farther back than WCW itself, not the UWF as the blowoff to their feud was at Starrcade 87 technically. My only concern would have been the stupid looking visual of the monster heel standing 2 feet shorter than Sting lol!
  12. Was there a Magnum TA copycat, name and all, in some outlaw promotion? Or did they dare try to bring back the real Magnum like they did gimmicks? Maybe it was a jobber gag like Magnum T. A. I seem to remember seeing that on TV as a youngun after Magnum had been finished a long time.
  13. WCW had a good idea with Sting. Have him beat a good enough challenger (Sid) while laying the tracks for Starrcade, The Black Scorpion. Like every good idea had though they messed it up. Them flat not having any idea at all what to do with a face champion is a myth. I remembered what was going on with the Black Scorpion pretty well with him stalking Sting claiming to be from his past, with a play on words nickname. Perfect lol! I recently rewatched some TV though and he went as far as to give dates and places and other references to the Ultimate Warrior. That obviously was a risk but they could have probably thought of some kind of payoff besides Ric Flair in the months they had before Starrcade. But where it started going to crap was before then. For some reason they had him start doing magic tricks and chants and whatnot. Just really silly stuff that lost it’s suspense before Starrcade, aka a good idea they messed up. So they just went back to Flair.
  14. Dusty would have messed it up somehow before the typical failures we remember WCW for happened tbh.
  15. Is there a Flyin Brian vs Bradstreet match from The Omni floating around somewhere? I can’t find 1 but I was watching Joey Maggs vs Badstreet in what was either a rematch of their Lightweight Tournament or a repeat of that match on the Power Hour with JR doing overdubbed commentary. I think it’s option 2 because he said something like fans have been writing wanting to know more about the Lightheavyweight Tournament so we bring you this match, followed by the explanation that Flyin Brian beat Badstreet at the Clash in the tournament. Next he said they had a rematch last Thursday night that was 1 of the best Lightheavyweight matches he’d ever called. I’m assuming that was an Omni match. He didn’t say anymore about it. Obviously he was selling there but of course the Omni produced a ton of forgotten classic, especially with midcard guys going for extra lengths of time. I’d definitely be down for some 20 minute Brian vs Brad.
