  1. There was a time and a place for that stuff at 1 time that’s for sure. And it might have even been doable then had everybody not hated the face they were all after. Also besides the Zodiac, that promo is a bunch of guys who at 1 time were heels that legit scared the s*** out of people.
  2. Which promo thread does this go in https://www.wwe.com/videos/kamala-shark-zodiac-and-meng-in-the-dungeon-of-doom-saturday-night-sept-9-1995
  3. Is there a comp somewhere of tag team partners wrestling each other 1 on 1? Like real tag teams whose matches against each other were rare, not Eddie vs Jericho wrestling each other and tagging week to week on throwaway WCW TV.
  4. This is a little late but I enjoyed the heck out of the WCCW doc by WWE and Kevin. They nailed alot of stuff they’d never touched before on that one and not just the Von Erichs.
  5. It was good ole WWC. That’s right Scott Steiner held Abby and Carlos’ ole belt. I think he was the last oldschool guy to wear it. His reign was short but I think he wrestled there for a couple of years. He jawed with those crazy fans, did goofy s*** while brawling, etc. I haven’t seen much of it either but it seemed like a bucket of hidden gems if you were a BPP fan.
  6. I’m trying to figure what regional TV show it was I used to watch every Sunday afternoon on Fox 31 out of Albany, Ga. It came on during an afternoon block of wrestling that included Worldwide and I want to say Mid-Atlantic. I could have swore there was a team called “The Masked Man Number 1” and The Masked Man Number 2.” I clearly remember them being called individually but never as “The Masked Men.” I’ve since found a few The Masked Executioners (NWF) matches on YouTube and the announcer referred to them individually and as a tag team. That sounds close I guess this was it.
  7. Any NWF historians around? I have a few questions.
  8. The actual point Flair was trying to make was right though wasn’t it? That Invader I had lost his daughter and Brody didn’t want to do business?
  9. Technically this doesn’t belong here because this isn’t how you cut a typical promo but I think it’s safe to just put anything here that qualifies as great which this is, especially anything that people might not have seen before. https://youtu.be/RLannrVWHao
  10. I bet this one has never been shared here because of the few other promos this guy cut that became famous for other reasons but this is hilarious yet legit like a Scott Steiner promo. I never thought I’d find a promo where this guy’s point was “I AM NORMAL” lol! ”Quit a hittin my leg!”
  11. I loved it. The Samoans were also soon buried, by the Midnight Express no less.
  12. I got absolutely flamed and melted down on by a YouTube psycho recently, even by YouTube standards by saying that this was a good show that was just overshadowed by the several possibly better ones and just overall good year for WCW/NWA. The main event was a solid Flair match where for 15 minutes they wrestled in 5th gear and not for 45 minutes a gear or 2 lower. That’s not to say I didn’t love of the historical Clash match but it wasn’t exactly something that had never been done before (Flair vs youngun that ends in a draw). The Starrcade 89 match was with a driven storyline that wasn’t just Flair vs youngun. It wasn’t the match where some youngun was going to wrestle Flair, it was the match where STING was going to BEAT Flair. Obviously the nontitle match win wasn’t a new thing either but this one had some nice twists. There was the tournament and the insane heat by the time we got to the match based on that night alone let alone their history. Burying Muta has been a minor gripe about this show but I thought they did well enough. Losing to Flair and Luger the way he did didn’t lose any heat and he had to lose to Sting. That ended that feud and started the Flair feud. Muta was gone soon after anyway. Doom being buried is another, but they were basically put together to get fed to the Steiners anyway since the Road Warriors couldn’t possibly work full time for a national wrestling promotion and lose a match. That was my complaint...the Road Warriors/Steiners finish. I could have lived with it had Patrick executed it a little better. He should have hesitated or done something to sell the fact that he was doing something that rarely happens. He just counted to 3 and said the Steiners won as if they won a squash match on TV. That’s still a darkhorse pick on greatest WCW match lists. With a better finish it might have been number 1. It wasn’t an hour classic or anything but the Steiners were perfectly crisp that match and the Road Warriors apparently only minded losing to the Steiners, not working with them. It was a dream match at the time and heat was as high as Sting/Flair. Next is the Samoans. I thought they did good here going with them. The Midnight Express wrestling the 3 other muscle tag teams would have just buried them and looked backwards in general. And we wouldn’t have gotten Jim Cornette in commentary. Norman the Lunatic’s cameo was well done. A real fun show that is overshadowed by a few others, and drug down by the blunder that was Sting’s knee injury making the main storyline that hit a new plateau that night pointless.
  13. The Sting DVD documentary finally set this straight. Eric did mention that Sting showed up kinda meh, but went on to explain that it was because the minute he walked in the room he could tell Hogan was being Hogan. Then a little while after that Nick Patrick admitted, on JR’s podcast I think, that the count was executed as booked. He didn’t botch it, it wasn’t a screwjob, etc. It was a desperate attempt to keep Hogan happy without neutering Sting. Only 1 of those results went as planned as we all know.
  14. I can’t help you with any of this but I thought I’d give you a bump and say that I have never seen any oldschool WWC wrestling that wasn’t epic. Lots of good work from all phases of the oldschool from mat wrestling to hardcore. Whatever lacked in the ring occasionally was made up for by the rest of the show. Those crowds were like 80s JCP crowds on rage pills. The main Spanish announcer was good too. Even if you couldn’t understand him you liked him similar to how you like a good announcer in a soccer game. And I’ve read good things about Scott Steiner’s world title run in the 2000s down there. That’s on my list of things to dig up for sure. Now with all that said I doubt you’ll get to many compliments on the place because of Bruiser Brody. His unfortunate death seems to be the 1 that upsets people the most. I understand we lost the man and everything don’t get me wrong, but I’m able to discuss things without bringing him into every one those things similar to how we can discuss Attitude Era WWF without always bringing Owen into it.
