Will likely pop in WCW Clash Of The Champions XXII tonight.
This is right when I started watching wrestling. I think just after WM 9. So to think I was into this crap as a kid is amazing.

Checked out a few matches including;

Brock Lesnar vs. RVD for the IC title (RVD was the champ)
Interesting to note, there were a ton of "Goldberg" chants directed at Lesnar.

Lita and Trish Stratus vs. Molly Holly and Gail Kim
A diva's match with... wrestling... and lots of it...?

Hardyz vs. Edge & Christian for the tag titles (Hardyz were the champs,TLC match and last chance for E&C to win the titles)
Great damn match, and this was on Raw. Sigh...

Jeff Hardy vs. Undertaker for the Undisputed Championship (Taker as champ, ladder match)
I remember the first time around when I was watching this. Amazing story told in this match.

Watched the first Hell in a Cell match from Badd Blood 97. It's amazing how much of a beating HBK took for that entire match.

.
Ya, Lesnar was getting "Goldberg" chants for the first months of his WWE career. Eventually the chants stopped when the crowd realized how special he was and how different he was from Goldberg. I never really thought there were many similarities between the two.

Watching Vintage Collection and this Tower of Doom match definitely is something else.

Thinking about popping in a random Smackdown from 2003-2004 tonight. Those were some fantastic shows.

Watched an episode of WCW Nitro from 2000 when the Millionaire's Club and the New Blood were feuding. Wasn't a bad concept on paper, the veterans vs the up-and-comers, but of course it was ruined by a number of factors, as was the norm in WCW during that time.

After that Raw from August 01 was posted in the Raw thread I've been watching old Raws and SDs from that era.

And on this Smackdown Scotty 2 Hotty gets a bigger pop than 90% of the roster today could ever dream ever. (Especially when he hits The Worm for the finish.)



EDIT: It Wasn't loading when I put start time for some reason. It's at about 1 hour and 8 minutes in.

Watched WM x8 since I was there as a kid, can't believe it's been 11 years.... Will probably watch summerslam in Toronto and unforgiven in Toronto since I was there but neither are as big/good as WM x8 was

I have all my DVD's/tapes packed away for the big move, but as soon as my wife and I are settled into our new house I plan on watching some classic wrestling in my man cave.

Thinking about starting with some Raw/Nitro episodes from late 1996. At that time. Nitro was much more exciting than Raw.

Currently watching a WCW Saturday Night show from November 1991. Flyin' Brian vs Cactus Jack going on right now. Just saw a commerical for F-Zero on the SNES. Awesome. Oh, and a Home Alone VHS one. haha!

Now, Arachnaman vs Stunning Steve Austin (with Paul E. Dangerously).

There was so much excitement in anticipation of WCW vs. WWF and they messed it up so badly.

I guess Booker/Bagwell can be blamed a bit for WCW vs. WWF not living up to the hype.

It wasn't just that. It was just a terrible feud overall. People were dreaming of NWA/WCW vs. WWF for like 20 years and it was such a let down. In terms of feuds, I would say it's the biggest let down in wrestling ever, at least since I've been watching.

It became a McMahon gong-show but a huge part of it was not being able to bring over Hall, Hogan, Nash, Goldberg, Steiner, Flair, etc for the angle.

The plan was for Nitro to be its own show until they got those contracts on a completely different network and still under the WCW brand, but Bagwell and Booker stunk up the joint on the Raw ME and Vince lost faith.

Currently watching WCW Superbrawl III, featuring an excellent Chris Benoit vs Too Cold Scorpio matchup and Sting vs Vader main event. The Rock 'n' Roll Express vs Heavenly Bodies was also a great tag match.

Man, were those short movies by WCW in those days freaking terrible. Cost them a fortune too. Sting accepting an invitation to Vader's "White Castle of Fear" in the rocky mountains, Sting and Jake Roberts "Spin The Wheel Make The Deal", Sting and Davey Boy being confronted on the beach by Vader and Sid. Just awful stuff.

Of course the videos didn't get any better when Hogan came on board. Anyone remember the Hogan/Dungeon of Doom shorts?
