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. Additionally, in action were the Kevin Nash and Scott Hall with Syxx against Ric Flair and Roddy Piper, Akira Hokuto meeting Madusa, Ultimo Dragon (known here at the Ultimate Dragon versus Psychosis and Kevin Greene facing Steve McMichael (yes, they had a very good...

This will go down as one of the better WCW Pay Per Views ever.  It had the debut of Rey Mysterio, Jr. in a classic against Dean Malenko. Lord Steven Regal and Sting had a tremendous one-on-one encounter, Ric Flair and Arn Anderson went to battle with Kevin Greene and Steve McMichael, the Giant and Lex Luger squared off for the world title and Chris Benoit and Kevin Sullivan had a unforgettable falls count anywhere match. But the most memorable part was when Kevin Nash and Scott Hall power...

It is the JCP/TBS/6:05/Saturday night show that began the Dusty Rhodes vs Tully Blanchard feud with the $50,000.00 Challenge! We will go in the lawyer's office to see the contract signing of Dusty/Tully complete a a paper bag full of a whole lot of money. Plus some great Interviews from Ric Flair, Jim Cornette, the Road Warriors (especially Hawk) and...wait for it...the return to Atlanta and the Superstation of the Fabulous Freebirds! That's right, Michael Hayes, Buddy Roberts and Terry Gordy...

We take you back to 2011 as Impact was a strong product in the wrestling world.  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 Bischoff and Matt Hardy, in this episode, beat the Young Bucks. It's worth a look and a look back at how wrestling has changed a decade later.  To watch...

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. Flair teams with Roddy Piper and Kevin Greene of the NFL to face Scott Hall, Kevin Nash and Syxx in the main event. But here is so much more,...

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 against Jushin "Thunder" Liger for the United State Title. It also featured a tag team "Lethal Lottery" with some sort of Battlebowl-Lord of the...

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 vignettes outside of the Scope, trying to get into the building where Nitro was being held. But the show was also famous for furthering the...

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. Secondly, we will see highlights from the Crockett Cup tournament in Baltimore won by Dusty Rhodes and Nikita Koloff, and, finally, we will see the debut of the New Breed: Chris Champion and Sean Royal. Two young men who were ahead of their time and, had it not been for a car crash, would have probably become top...

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. But this edition of Raw had plenty of other moments and Superstars such as DX, the Rock, The Undertaker, Kane, the New Midnight Express, Sable and...

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 of WCW and more. Find out what was the low point in their lives (you might be surprised) and what was behind the move from Connecticut and back to...

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 Malenko, the World Tag Team Champions have a great match against Kidman and Rey Mysterio, Chris Jericho faces Jerry Flynn plus Booker T. Konnan, Raven...

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 match that "stole the show" was Flyin' Brian Pillman vs Jushin "Thunder" Liger. Great stuff from the pre-Hogan and pre-NWO days of World...
