  1. Also alot of squash matches weren’t great because they included guys who needed them, who needed those wins on the way to losing a bigger match. Monster heels are obviously the exception here. Atleast 1 of them appeared every hour. Besides them it was alot of Doink, Roma, Watts, etc. Matt Bourne was good enough and gave enough of a shit to make them entertaining.
  2. You weren’t joking about a burn. And they were done in the style of Rodney Dangerfield which was genius lol!
  3. I approached this thread grumbling. At the old board squashes were oversold and some of the novels people typed about them were so contrived. But the good ones sure are good. Meanwhile I appreciate the others for the glimpse back in time not only in wrestling but my life in general. The announcers voices, the clack of the ring ropes etc are sounds from the background even when I wasn’t watching. Like I’d get up and go play during a squash or something but never not hear it just in case something good happened.
  4. I didn’t remember this but I just discovered it. What history! Because it’s Scott vs Muta in WCW right...yeah but going deeper than that. When did you ever see the Steiners as faces get their tails totally beat clean on free TV lol! This had to be the only time this ever happened!
  5. I want to say Kamala said in a shoot that the JYD match was his favorite match?
  6. At 28:31...is there a name for that throw? The Mod Squad were solid workers for guys their size btw.
  7. It should be the 4-17-00 Nitro for the Mike Awesome theme. Of course knowing WCW and my luck, for all I know Mike Awesome could have been like Saturn. They had him rushed in so fast they didn’t have time for theme music until week 4 or so lol! In other words, no theme music at first.
  8. This has made some rounds. It’s the menu music on a Poison (the band) DVD I have lol!
  9. Naw...but it just hit me how to find it. Find his first official WCW match which shouldn’t be hard.
  10. I want to say that in an ironic turn of events, the great Flair/Piper match from Mid-Atlantic belongs here, with the 1 odd part being a move Flair might have done 0 times besides that match - the dropkick lol! Then by rule their match from 1998 belongs with no odd stuff thrown in because it was nothing but punches. Unfortunately that match wasn’t great because all they could do was punch.
  11. Nitro’s overrun during commercials during Robin Hood. Incredibly easy to make fun of now but incredibly heated, dramatic wrestling TV at the time.
  12. No...it was way faster. I’m still looking for it dang dang dang.
  13. That actually might belong on a GOAT squash match list. They never broke sequence. They were wrestling from start to finish. They didn’t stall, stop to taunt, etc and they fluently mat wrestled, then brawled then ended with the big move. And Jim Cornette how dang great is he I could watch him for forever. He sells legit rage, jokes, and pouting 1 after the other in random order. I laughed at Murdoch threatening to whop Misty because I used to watch around this time and wonder why somebody didn’t just whop Missy, Woman, etc after all the times they cheated. The first time I ever heard a face make the threat was, of all people, The Patriot in WCW I think. I can’t remember who he was threatening but I clearly remember him saying it because I’d never heard it before.
  14. I remember a thread on the old board that was kinda sorta about how Luger/Simmons from Halloween Havoc wasn’t bad. I haven’t seen the match myself.
  15. Also whether The Big Show deserved what I’m about to say or not is irrelevant to the OP’s question. Anyway he altered wrestling history minus some of the drama that usually comes with it similar to Sting. He was just playing basketball 1 day then he was in the Halloween Havoc main event. Then I would go as far as to say WCW might not have survived without him carrying the jobstrap for the next 3 years. Seriously did he not lose to Goldberg every week on Nitro for a year? Sure seems like it but it can’t be because I remember just as many throwaway matches against Sting and Luger. But shoot obviously 1 of those doesn’t happen without the other so if The Big Show never happens, does WCW even reach it’s peak? Hogan was already getting stale and The Giant saved all that for a while even if it did still take a shit. Had Hulkamania not survived until 1996 I don’t know that WCW would have ever been more than a rasslin show that the guy who owned the station owned.
  16. It could be argued that Sting getting fucked altered wrestling history...twice. And not just this guy got the belt instead of him kind of altered. The entire sport blew to pieces twice because of 2 freak accidents he was in. By that merit Sting is the choice over Jericho. He’s also the pick over Jericho by the typical comparison but Jericho is a hair away from beating Sting here, and a few hairs away from knocking many many more guys off the mountain.
  17. Sting, but I can’t explain as trying to pick between Savage and UT already made my head explode.
  18. I’m watching “The Monkees” which was a hilarious TV show ??? Apparently what killed the series wasn’t it’s lack of quality, but the fact that people turned on it when they learned that The Monkees didn’t write their music and really weren’t even a band. Watching shows like this that I remember from around the same time that I used to watch syndicated wrestling as a youngun, especially with it being Sunday afternoon, takes me back. And today is the first day of the time change which makes it a little more dramatic for some reason. Low and behold if Worldwide magically came on this TV next I might cry lol!
  19. 87 at the latest no? What year was Hayabusa’s?
  20. BPP was awesome in TNA. Jim Cornette was good to. Sting accidentally bleeding buckets every week was good to. Much like WCW though, they didn’t know what to do with good things that happened on purpose or by accident. Here’s the full version of this. I’ve listened to this dozens of time now and I really think Luger says the F word lol!
  21. Early botch and a nice recovery by Schultz here, pointing out a movie foul by Sgt Slaughter. He hardly keeps it together after that but the result is still great lol!
  22. https://imgflip.com/gif/3rcbi1 I haven’t embedded something in so long lol I just popped in to say that I caught this last night and thought it was cool. The fans were foaming for it and when he did it they couldn’t believe it. From what I hear this is the first time they’ve 1) done something that extreme in a while and 2) got that kind of a reaction extreme or not.
  23. I admire the shit out of David Schultz. There were alot of guys out of his mold whose career ended because of that type of a fuck up and they just pissed away. He kept it together and made a life for himself. That Nancy Sullivan pic is creepy for a different reason I’ve mentioned before (but not since their death I don’t think and probably shouldn’t now).
  24. Also I don’t think “fire” is the thing that Bret didn’t have that kept him from wrestling in the NWA or WCW. He might have lacked fire in some situations, but only because he knew a trash heap when he saw one and he just flat out wasn’t 1 to work under disorganized circumstances. The 1 exception is obviously WCW at the end but that didn’t exactly last and that was a desperate reach anyway, and his last. I loved the NWA but on it’s best day it was never as organized as the WWF. And WCW lol yeah right.
  25. Michael Hayes had IT. 1 of the most underrated guys ever imo. I don’t have all of those dates organized in my head but I think the original Von Erichs/Freebirds feud goes unaffected. Then obviously the second feud doesn’t happen. Unfortunately I don’t know if much changes for the Von Erichs. The territory perhaps dries up without even being salvaged for that short while with Jarrett without the second Freebirds feud to keep it alive. Piper was great but when he lost it in the ring it was a pretty drastic change, not like some of the others from his mold who slowly lost it and worked around it. I could see his career being similar to most guys like him who didn’t get the break in the WWF. A WCW life in limbo, a guy who bounced around, who knows. He’s the wildcard in this what if.
