We are firmly into the NWO era of WCW, and this edition of the Great American Bash had plenty of highlights. Led by the feud between the Macho Man Randy Savage and Diamond Dallas Page, the Bash of '97 had some fine matches.

The roster was AMAZING: Cactus Jack, Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Sting, Kurt Angle, Jeff Jarrett, Eric Bischoff, the Young Bucks, Matt and Jeff Hardy, Samoa Joe, Amazing Red, Bully Ray, AJ Styles, Bobby Roode, Tommy Dreamer and on and on and on. But 11 years ago, Eric Bischo…
 
What a difference a year made in the life of World Championship Wrestling! In last week's podcast we looked back on Slamboree 1996, an event most fans hated. A year later? Most everyone loved Slamboree 1997. The advent of the NWO had a lot to do with that, but so did the return of Ric Flair after being off for eight months with shoulder problems. F…
 
Slamboree was originally an event that began in 1993 and was subtitled: "A Legends Reunion." The event was the brainchild of Dusty Rhodes, but in 1996 it looked nothing like the original one. The 1996 version featured Sting versus the Giant for the WCW World Title, Dean Malenko against Brad Armstrong for the WCW Cruiserweight Title and Konnan again…
 
This is arguably the most famous "Raw is War" ever. Not because it was the highest rated ever, but because it featured DX on the attack against WCW! The two sides, the two shows, were literally 24 miles apart with the WWF(E) at the Hampton Coliseum and WCW at the Norfolk Scope. So DX, led by Triple H, Billy Gunn, X-Pac, Road Dogg and Chyna recorded…
 
We go back to 1987 with some pretty memorable events. First of all, Magnum T.A. makes his first public appearance since his horrible accident in the fall of 1986.

While things were on the steep decline in 1998 for WCW, Vince McMahon and the WWE continued to grow. Then on April 13, 1998 something happened that shook the Monday Night Wars: Raw beat Nitro in the ratings for the first time in 83 weeks. Things were never the same, again. The main reason was the angle between Stone Cold Steve Austin and McMahon. B…
 
In honor of her 70th birthday (which is April 6th), we take a close look at the woman who has been with Tony Schiavone during his entire wrestling career. A very emotional but devoted, loving wife and mother of five, she was with Tony when he first decided to take the plunge into wrestling, during the move to WWE, the move back to WCW, the demise o…
 
The Nitro ratings were tumbling, but that did not stop a very large crowd from coming to the Air Canada Center in Toronto in March of 1999. Why? Because Bret Hart was on the card with a memorable challenge to Goldberg. Also, Hollywood Hulk Hogan meets Diamond Dallas Page and their brawl goes on to destroy the Nitro set. Chris Benoit and Dean Malenk…
 
Twelve years ago, great stars like Christopher Daniels, Frankie Kazarian, Amazing Red, the Young Bucks, the Motor City Machine Guns, Mangus (AKA Nick Aldis), Scott Hall, Syxx-Pac, Kevin Nash, Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan, AJ Style, Kurt Angle, Abyss and many more all got together for a special edition of TNA's Destination X.

It was a card loaded with talent, and one that saw the end of Lex Luger's run in WCW for awhile as he would bolt to the WWF. Here we have Cactus Jack, Steve Austin, Ron Simmons, the Steiners, Arn Anderson, Larry Zbyszko, Barry Windham, Arn Anderson, Beautiful Bobby, Sting, Luger, Ricky Steamboat, Rick Rude. Ricky Morton, Vinnie Vegas and more. But …
 
The Four Horsemen were dominate in 1986. So much so that to this day, wrestling fans worldwide know what you mean when you flash four fingers on one hand. But in 1987, the unthinkable happened. The crew of Ric Flair, Tully Blanchard, Arn Anderson and Ole Anderson (managed by JJ Dillon) had a problem and it escalated. We will take you back to relive…

It's the midst of the Jim Herd era in WCW and this seven match card had some good moments and some bad ones as well.

Plus the Rock and Roll Express and the Midnight Express with Jim Cornette put on yet another tag tea…
 
The WCW Annual February event was a few months before the advent of the NWO. Packed with stars and some very bad matches, the pay per view event was not short on major talent. Two cage matches highlighted the event with Hulk Hogan meeting the Giant and Ric Flair going up against the Macho Man Randy Savage. The event also featured, Sting, Lex Luger,…
 
We celebrate five (count 'em, five!) years of WHW with a look at the 2017 Royal Rumble. Back in January of 2017, Conrad Thompson brought Tony Schiavone's attention back to wrestling when this podcast began, and for Schiavone, this event--the 2017 Rumble--was the first wrestling program he watched since his departure from wrestling in 2001. So, this…
 
This TBS special, which aired on January 21, 1992, pulled in the lowest ratings numbers of any of the "Clashes," but was, critically, one of the best ones that aired on TBS between March of 1988 and August of 1997. From the opening bout, featuring the Steiner Brothers against Vader and Mr. Hughes, to the final match with Sting and Ricky Steamboat m…
 
We take you back to the TBS Studios in Atlanta in 1987 where we first heard from and then saw in action, "The Total Package" Lex Luger. Make no mistake, this was not his first time wrestling on television, as he had been a part of Championship Wrestling from Florida, but this would be his first time on a national broadcast. We will also hear from D…
 
It's' the Finger Poke of Doom! It's the "Butts in Seats" comment. It's all here! The reason WCW lost the Monday Night Wars. Not so fast! Even though those two incidents have resonated among wrestling fans for decades, the main reason WCW lost the war is actually all wrapped up in this episode. This Monday Nitro episode sucked! Even though on this s…

From the intense promos from Dusty and Nitka, the Four Horsemen, the Rock and Roll Express, Jim Cornette, Ric Flair, the Road Warriors and other to the match where the Ragin' Bull and Ric…

Was this the end of the Rock and Roll Express era in JCP? In this very famous telecast Paul Jones issues a challenge for his men Rick Rude and Manny Fernandez to vie for the World Tag Team Championship. The result is an unprecedented four segment match in which Ricky Morton and Robert Gibson are dethroned! Also, surprise, surprise....Baby Doll is n…
 
Starrcade is over and now the focus of JCP is the Bunkhouse Stampedes going across the country in December. However, this is a different show: no Ric Flair, no Four Horsemen, no Dusty Rhodes, but still plenty of action with a damn good main event. At the end we will see a 12+ minute match with Brad and Bob Armstrong against Jimmy Garvin and Bill Du…

The program begins with the famous scene in the parking lot of Jim Crockett Promotions where the Four Horsemen and JJ Dillon follow Dusty Rhodes and attack him; breaking his arm. Once the show begins, the announcement is made of Magnum T.A.'s tragic accident. The program tries to put a positive spin on it, but much is still unknown at that time. Bu…
