Dubbya C Dubbya: Where the Big Boys Play (1995)

Happy to be here. My name is Kyle. This is my first BTB, my roomy has been posting here and I've always wanted to try it. So here I am... I open up to criticism, I want to improve. Reviews will be returned.

Background: 1994, a year that saw WCW sign the biggest star in wrestling Hulk Hogan to a contract ended on a low, with Starrcade 1994 (the worst PPV in recent history). Eric Bischoff entered 1994 ready to debut his new Monday show at the first of the year. He had top draws like Sting, Hulk Hogan, Big Van Vader, the returning Ric Flair and Randy Savage to pull in viewers but needed to keep them.

Bischoff's game plan would be to continue to push the top talent while recruiting top indy talent and WWF talent to WCW. High flyers and technical masters who can put on 5 star wrestling matches with anyone. He would take the blank check given to him by Ted Turner and try to lure away WWF talent to his product. Bischoff was determined to dominate the wrestling world and 1995 would the year he reached that goal.

January 07, 1995
Taped from Center Stage Theater
Atlanta, GA

Hosted by Tony Schiavone & Bobby "The Brain" Heenan

(We are at the announcing table where Bobby "The Brain" Heenan and Tony Schiavone welcome us to the show)

Tony Schiavone: Welcome to WCW Saturday Night, I'm Tony Schiavone and as always I'm joined by wrestling smartest man, Bobby "The Brain" Heenan.

Heenan: Glad to see you've finally perked up and realized that Tony. Because its a long time coming.

Tony Schiavone: Just reading whats on the card Bobby. Folks what a night of professional wrestling we have for you tonight. The big main event is signed for tonight's show. United States Champion and number one contender Big Van Vader will defend his title against Sting!

Heenan: Vader has been on a roll as of late. He is gunning for Hogan. And Tony, I've been waiting a long time for this moment but it is finally here. We may, just may have found the man to end Hulkamania.

Jean-Paul Levesque vs. Brian Pillman

Lock up and back and forth chain wrestling start out this match. Pillman takes Levesque to school early on repeatadly taking him to the mat. Levesque reverses a whip-off-the-ropes and nails a knee lift taking Pillman off his feet. Pillman rolls out of a elbow drop and hits a high drop kick sending Levesque to the mat.

Mean Gene: I'm standing by with Colonel Parker and his Studds Stable. Up next after the commercial break, Bunkhouse Buck and Dick Slater are in action against Stars N Stripes. Whoever wins this match is in line for a Tag Team title match at a later date. What is the game plan from the Studds Stable?

Colonel Parker: You see 1995 is going to be a glorious, glorious year in the lives of the Studds Stables. Because it is a year of gold in our lives. I have cigars ready for everyone once we getwhat we have coming to us. You see The Southern Studds Mean Gene, are ready for the WCW World Tag Team Championship. I have the monster behind me, ready for action. Meng is a savage ready to whip those smiles off of those faces in WCW and bring wins to us. And Arn Anderson is ready. Arn Anderson is the best wrestler in WCW today. I could keep talking about that, but I think we'll let Arn answer those questions.

Mean Gene: What about it Arn Anderson, you have a World Television title match coming up at Clash of the Champions. What does 1995 mean for Arn Anderson.

Arn Anderson: Many people wonder why I'm with the Studds Stable. Because at this moment in WCW, there is no other force more capable than this. From Meng to The Southern Studds. And with Stunning Steve Austin making his way back to WCW. This truly is the year of the Studds. And Johnny B. Badd, you have done you job real well as of late. You've been doing well as a place holder. But the true champion is back. So at Clash of the Champions, you can fight and beg. But the outcome will be the same. DDT. 1.2.3.

The Dirt Sheet

WCW Officials not Happy with Paul Roma
Word coming out of this weekend shows is WCW officials and Eric Bischoff is upset with Paul Roma's work. Roma, who has been outspoken about the way he is being used wrestled Dustin Rhodes in one of the featured bouts on Saturday Night's broadcast. No one backstage is happy with Roma's no selling of Rhodes moves and the near brawl that errupted in the match between the two men.

All the blame is being laid at Roma's feet and he is "on thin Ice" with WCW. Roma's long time tag team partner Paul Orndorff is fed up as well, not wanting to tag with him any longer.

TBS not happy as well?
While WCW Saturday Night is doing very well in the ratings, they are not happy with the sunday morning show, Worldwide. Getting crushed by WWF Superstars doesn't help.

Bischoff is working on the next broadcast tapped after the Saturday Night tapping this weekend. Word is he is going to bring in a few of the bigger draws to boost raitings.

More Signings?
Sid Vicious, the Steiner Brothers...who could be next. Word is a former WWF star is about to join up with WCW in the coming weeks. Who could it be? No one knows for sure but word is the signing is near perfection.

Other signing news. Word is Hulk Hogan has handpicked the first student of the Power Plant and WCW Power Pro system...a 7 foot 2 monster? More on this up and comer as it develops.

And the raids continue? Word is Bischoff is close to signing several current ECW stars to developmental deals in the near future. If signed they'll hone their skills in Power Pro before joining the main roster.

Hulk Hogan injured?
Rumor is Hulk Hogan, current WCW World Champion, injured his hand at his Florida home early this week. No word on the severity of the injury of if he'll have to miss ring time. More on this in the coming weeks.

If this is true it is a major blow to WCW, who had built the promotion the past year around Hogan and had planned for Hogan and Randy Savage to team against Vader and Sid Vicious at Clash of the Champions

Re: Dubbya C Dubbya: Where the Big Boys Play (1995)

c-class-superstar review time (love)

Hey man, I promised I’d be the first to review your show so here you go:

First off, the time period is a tuff one for me. I love WCW and the beginning of 1994 and the end of 95/early 96 (where it picked up again) was great I never cared for 1995 as a wrestling fan. Now as a fan of fun stupid shit…the Dungeon of Doom was the best.

Anyway your presentation is good. Saturday Night was a decent first show. Interesting to see how you handle Cactus Jack, Jean-Paul(Triple H.) and Steve Austin here. The first match is fun, Pillman as a baby bothers me. I like him as a heel mind you. Jean-Paul isn’t over so jobbing out seems right. Remember if you keep him down as a jobber, you may have hard time building him when you want to later.

Studds Stable…what a horrible name for a faction. This faction is strange but true to life. Never cared for Buck or Slater in WCW so…whatever. Anderson needs that TV strap. Do this one like IRL and put it on him at Clash of the Champions please. Meng, make him into a badass and we’ll be good.

Back with match time, Pre-Buff bagwell and the Patriot jobbing out to the Southern Studds. Very fun back and forth match here. Nice touch on the end with the cigar. Seems like something WCW would have used to build a feud in the early 90s. Stars n Strips are coming back for revenge I hope.

Macho Man in the ring. Dig it. Already teasing tension with Hogan? Too soon? Anyway Vader is out to huff and puff. I know you love Vader man. First holy shit moment of WCW 1995 is Vicious making a comeback. In real life, Ric Flair and Anderson would flip out. Vicious and Vader are back together . Masters of the Powerbomb!!!!

Oh shit. Robert Eaton as a blue blood I forgot. LOL. Okay. Johnny B. Badd during his cross dressing phase right? No? LOL. Nice match it turns out to be. Badd goes all strong style on Eaton. Maybe a gimmick change? Anyway Anderson is out and steals the belt. Nice touch going into their feud.

1997-1998 Clash logo in 1995...? Okay I know you were bitching about not finding retro Worldwide logos…but lol…never mind.

Dustin Rhodes vs. Paul Roma…not much to say. Rhodes picks up a win. Interesting if you keep Rhodes where he’ll go too.

Nice The Steiner Brothers are coming back to WCW. Harlem Heat are pissed off, angry black men. SO this feud will take the place of the horrible Nasty Boys/Harlem Heat marathon of 1995 right?

Fantastic Main Event. So/So show thus far but the main event delivered please do more matches like this. Vader vs. sting is great. Vicious out and Hogan to make save. Looks like Mega Powers vs. Masters of the Powerbombs at Clash….wait what about sting.?

Good first show. “Worldwide” was just results…so.

News and Rumors- Fire Roma…who needs him. TBS dropping Worldwide sucks. Fix it. Curt Hennig, the Giant and out of ECW who would I like to see (sabu, chris benoit, chris Jericho, eddie, dean) lets sign em now.

Hogan injured….well that sucks. Although I’m sure Hogan would have been jobbing to Vader by next week anyway.

All and all good show after a tough start. When this first popped up, even I your friend was thinking this doesn’t look good. But you turned it around. I hope the next show improves.

Re: Dubbya C Dubbya: Where the Big Boys Play (1995)

WCW Saturday Night Review: I thought Brian Pillman v HHH(I will call him that to save myself typing out his actual name) was a good way to kick off the show and a good way to build Pillman up as a solid face. I realise you are using EWR and the match might not have gotten the best ratings in the game but it was a still a solid way to open the show, I know this match was kind of like a face squash but maybe HHH could have got a bit more offence in just to make him look like a bit more of a credible heel unless you plan on using him as a heel jobber.

The backstage promo with Studd's Stable was a pretty good why to hype up the upcoming match and the stable it self. I don't know a whole lot about WCW let alone WCW in this time period so it's hard for me to tell if all the wrestlers seemed in character well but it all looked and read ok so not much wrong with this segment. The tag match was pretty good tag team action but I thought the ending was a little weird although it did follow up on the promo quite well and solidified the team as one of the top heel teams in your game.

I really liked the Randy Savage segment, Savage seemed really in character and it was enjoyable to read so keep that up. This was also a good way to set up Savage's first feud by the looks of things which will be a good way to launch pad him into bigger things in WCW. It will be interesting to read what you do with him from here and how his character develops.

Earl Robert Eaton v Johnny B. Badd was a pretty decent match and I like to see a title match of some sorts within the first couple of shows in someones BTB to solidify the champion and his challengers so well done on this one. I do not know anything about the competitors though so I can't tell you if the moves used where realistic and whether or not you had the right person win ect.

I don't mind Dustin Rhodes and I am glad he got the victory in this match which I am guessing was just a way to get him a bit more over, not a lot to comment on with that one.

I liked the Harlem Heat interview as they seemed in character and what not but I thought maybe it could have been given a bit more time, I also thought this for the Savage promo but you seem to be focusing more on having a lot of matches which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Good work on this one.

The main event was an enjoyable match and was given good time which all main events should get.I noticed for your matches however that you are copy and pasting a lot of the matches from EWR which I think is a habit you shouldn't find yourself in as the movesets about from the finishers usually are just generic and not realistic to whoever is wrestling so maybe work on just using EWR as something to keep records ect but writing your own matches out instead of using snippets from EWR mixed with a bit of your own work.

I liked the way the main event panned out and it was good to see an appearance from Hogan at the end. Overall a pretty good show.

Re: Dubbya C Dubbya: Where the Big Boys Play (1995)

WCW Pre-nWo... I will be reading this for sure. Hopefully there will be some good shit here!! So on with my review!

"Jean-Paul Levesque Vs. Brian Pillman" (Rating: 7/10)
I thought this was a perfect opening match. I don't think it was a total jobber match. JPL would go good with the Blue Bloods. Would be interesting to see him get a push with those guys as they are no non-sense and he would fit in well with them.

"Studds Stable Interview" (Rating: 5/10)
I was picturing Tony Schiavone doing the interview. Didn't feel like good ole' "Mean" Gene there. The interview could have gone a little longer too. The grammer was a little off aswell. Served it's purpose, but a little more work would have done wonders.

"Stars N Strips vs. Southern Studds" (Rating: 5/10)
In my opinion if you are gonna make commentary comments in a match use it to break the match in to paragraphs. In between the paragraphs is when you could have mentioned that Stars N' Stripes are looking to regain thier titles. Would have looked nicer to me. Also I am assuming this was a full match? If it was it was too short. A little more would go a long way here. Burning the face with a cigar is bold! Works well too, but if this is not used to cause a huge feud here then I would have saved it for later on.

"Randy Savage Interview" (Rating: 7/10)
I still feel Tony Schaivone in that interview. I don't know why. Maybe adding more Mean Gene mannerisims will help out more. It was a good promo otherwise. Maybe beating Savage up a little more would have gotten the point accorss better and having both men doing some damage would have pumped them up better. Savage Vs. Sid feud would be good. If it don't lead to that with the fact they didn't really punish him would leave this angle hanging and wantong more.

"Earl Robert Eaton vs. Johnny B. Badd" (Rating: 7/10)
Another jobber lenght match here. It had real good action, but should have been longer. My only gripe really. The flow of the moves and the outside interaction was spot on! Arn Anderson no matter who he was aligned with has more respect than to steal the title! I wouldn't have liked to see Arn do something like that as it toally kills his bad ass, no frills, strait up ass kicking personality.

"Paul Roma vs. Dustin Rhodes" (Rating: 0/10)
Yeah here is where I can totally see you copying and pasting results. Total no-no!!! Jobbing out Roma in a 1 minute match is one thing, but being lazy enough to not write out a 1 minute squash match does not help the credibility of the rest of your work. Dustin Rhodes on top of it... This would have been a good match to watch in RL.

"Harlem Heat Interview" (Rating: 2/10)
We all just found out about the Stieners coming back! How can many be saying that when the news is only 30 seconds old? Where is the question that Mean Gene asked? I don't see it. uggg... I thought the Stieners were the Redneck Brothers lol.... Don't that mean they were already added to the list? What did Sherri say again? The 1st sentence was spot on, but the rest. Also it's very hard to shut her up much less shutting Booker T up. This interview should have gone a lot longer. On the plus side I finally was able to see some Mean Gene there!

"Sting vs. Big Van Vader" (Rating: 5/10)
Damn, Can see more copy shit in there. Sting with a body slam? ok fair enough, but Sting with a belly to back suplex? No way! Hogan comes out to help Sting, but instead had Randy Savage as his partner even though Randy Savage was demanding a title shot? You should have had Hogan come out to save Savage in his interview changed the segments around to reflect the Champ coming out near the end of show and booked a different main event! Not good there.

"Overall Comments"

It was a good show. It started out great, but fell apart half way through. I don't get why you have one idea during a segment, but then it turns out completely off track and meaning something else which totally kills the previous spot and or wrestler. It's like watching an episode of the Simpson. The beginning of the show never has anything to do with the actual show it's self. Only it works there not in wrestling. I am not going to go back and re-read the opening matches to see if I can catch copy and paste like the last 2 matches. I will give you the benefit of the doubt and would hope to NEVER see it again!!! If you can't take the time to write it out yourself then we can't be bothered to take the time to read it.

I sure hope you continue this thing and take a little more time writing it! It has the chance to be something real good here! I will give it another show to see if it's original or not. Proof read for the few grammer mistakes and write your own work and I will be a fan for the whole duration!

(Overall Show Rating: 4.8/10)

Re: Dubbya C Dubbya: Where the Big Boys Play (1995)

thank you for the reviews guys. I will put more into the match writing, although sacrifice Sting's belly to back was added by me. I saw him do it in a match with Vader in the early 90's.

Returns are on the way. Thanks for the comment because all I want to do is improve.
