'WCW with AK & Wynter Dior' is a weekly structured shit-talkin show that sheds light on the versatility of ideas that 2 Black millennials who don't give a f*ck, can come up with. Being a bit "unconventional" in their womanliness, WCW is the outlet for women to understand "WE CAN DO WHAT MEN DO AND LOOK 10x BETTER WHILE DOING IT". Interviews, drinking games, DJ mixes, current events and celebrity gossip are only the half of it..

All Elite Wrestling's recent All Out 2021 PPV earned the biggest buyrate for a non-WWE wrestling PPV since WCW produced their inaugural Mayhem show in way back in 1999.

Today marks four years since the very first episode of Because WCW looked at the infamous Starrcade 1997 PPV (which also means we have lasted longer than the promotion did after that botched Sting/Hogan main event), and to celebrate our 4th birthday we spoke to a member of wrestling media who knows World Championship Wrestling extremely well - the …
 
Dean and Liam arrive at one of the most iconic editions of Monday Nitro, as Scott Hall and Kevin Nash bring a regularly-scheduled episode to its knees with a sneak attack so rough and severe that wrestling writers would spent the next decade or more attempting to replicate it on a weekly basis, to diminishing returns and diluted effects. Re-live th…

Because WCW continues its chronicles of the company's bizarre obsession of anchoring its flagship year-end pay-per-view offering with a myriad of side concepts as Starrcade finds itself once again piggybacking a Battlebowl and a Lethal Lottery. Nonetheless, this curiously-booked smattering of double duty, triple duty and wholly uninspiring encounte…

We let our special guests pick a pay-per-view or special WCW event to cover when they appear on the show, and many of them pick shows from the early 1990s. Who can blame them? To many of us growing up at that time, it was a true glory period, surpassed only by the nWo's peak months. Our latest third chair was no exception, as Dave Bradshaw - who ha…
 
Surprise! For a special Mania week treat, Dave and Lee are taking a one-time detour off Thunder Road to have a look at what the competition were doing while Big Sexy stormed to victory at World War 3.

Once again, Dean and Liam look back at a PPV in line with their ongoing Nitro Watchalong series, and it happens to be one of the more enjoyable efforts WCW ever put behind a paywall.

Nitro's move to two hours continues to experience some teething pain, as WCW delivers another one-hour episode stretched out the extra length as the hard sell for the 1996 Great American Bash begins.

One week after the shocking Nitro appearance of Scott Hall, WCW broadcast their second two-hour Monday night offering - though it could have easily fit inside the old one-hour timeslot if they removed all the repeated promo videos for the absent Hulk Hogan.

A new year means new horizons for Because WCW, as for the first time we review a Clash Of The Champions event! The two-hour TV specials had a Saturday Night's Main Event/In Your House vibe, but were eventually replaced by monthly three-hour PPVs.

It's the first regular DoT of 2021 and it certainly feels like a 2020 hangover this week.
