Re: WCW Starrcade 1991 - Your thoughts?
I remember watching this ppv live as a little kid...good times, I always thought that WCW gave up on the Battlebowl concept too soon. I believe if they kept going with it year, after year it could have been as big as The Royal Rumble over time. I would of just moved the ppv it was held on. I would of had a separate PPV for this instead of Starrcade. I know WCW did this in 1993 when they had a separate PPV called Battlebowl which was held that November.
I would of kept that concept of it and have the winner of Battlebowl every year get a shot at the World Champion of Starcade . I know they did this in 1993 and kind of did it with the World War 3 Battle royals a few years later.. but I always kind of preferred the battle bowls to the 60 man battle royals. It had its own unique personality from a regular battle royal...just like Royal Rumble does which makes that one special. If you see one regular battle royal, you've seen them all in my opinion.
As for this particular PPV itself I enjoyed it and find its a really underrated PPV. I believe there was no other way than have Sting and Luger be the last two in this considering the story behind their feud. The following years Battlebowl in 1992 however, was such let down compared to this one. They only had i believe 8 or 10 wrestlers in that one and just one ring. If they were going to half ass it, they were better off not doing it,
