Re: Never watched WCW, what year is good to start?
If you really want to get the most out of what WCW was about, you are going to have to start at around 1986 and look at some of the Jim Crockett Years. Alot of great stuff there...the formation of the 4 Horsemen, the night of the sky walkers.... The rise and sudden end of Magnum T.A.
1987- The whole build up to the first War Games match is making 1987 worth to look at alone.
Now from there when you get into 1988 when Ted Turner purchases the company from Crockett, so thats definitely worth looking at seeing the changes WCW went through from presentation standpoint for their product.
So I say start in 1986- mid 1999. I think everything from this time period is worth looking at especially 1992-1994 and 1996- early 1999
mid 1999-2001 is when you start heading into dangerous territory lol. There are some good stuff thats hidden in this time period, such as Hogan return to Red and Yellow, Booker T's first title win, WCW's first initial reboot with the whole New Blood thing was kinda decent for a month before it went to hell in a handbasket too lol but most of it is a tough sit through, so be prepared.
