I don't miss WCW because I never watched it. I do however miss what it made the WWF do.

You didn't miss much from 1999-2001.

I miss having a company that could make even stubborn old Vince stop and take notice.

I only ever watched one episode back in the day, as I was a WWF fan at 10 years old. All I miss is that competition side of things.

I do. If the WCW was still around the WWE would still be trying and wrestling probably would be great again.

Having grown up on Sting, The Four Horsemen, The Dangerous Alliance, Terry Funk, Lex Luger, Ricky Steamboat, Big Van Vader, The Great Muta, Cactus Jack, The Road Warriors, The Steiner Brothers, The Freebirds, The Midnight Express and Doom from the late 80's through to the early 90's i will always consider myself as more of an NWA/WCW fan than a WWE fan regardless of whether WCW is around or not. I really only began watching WWE regularly once The Road Warriors had joined WWE and The Ultimate Warrior had become WWE champion although i'd watched WWE back to WrestleMania 3 on videos bought for me by my family and played them on an old Betamax we had.

The whole era of WWE vs WCW and to an extent ECW was the absolute peak of the wrestling industry and people forget that Mexico and Japan were doing really well at the same time as well, to have been a hardcore fan in that era was truly a special thing and a true honour. The thing is that because of how piss poor WCW was from the very start of 1999 onwards i'm glad it isn't around because it would only have tarnished the great legacy the company had dating back to Georgia Championship Wrestling and hurt my memories from when i began watching. Despite it not showing in the ratings though TNA is putting out the best show and PPV's in the business today so i'll continue to hope that eventually the ratings will reflect their great work of recently and be a true alternative to WWE and provide some competition.

I'm not saying Nitro was ever better than Raw but Nitro looked better, felt bigger, seemed cooler, had the bigger than life characters of the 90s. Raw was probably more entertaining and better all around but Nitro was so damn cool for a while.

The introduction of Sting, the build-up to Goldberg(and especially his entrance), some of the best nWo-segments was stuff that was so much better than anything in the WWF at the time and so much better than anything that I've seen in wrestling since then.

It's weird that Bischoff has sucked so bad since he took over TNA. What the hell happened there?

Without a doubt, and the business itself misses it. The Monday Night Wars was the best and greatest period in the history of the industry, and WCW was what started that era. Nitro was innovative and started the biggest boom ever with the nWo. Bischoff was a pioneer for many creative concepts which led to some of the most exciting TV I have ever seen. I always loved the wild and dark atmosphere of Nitro and WCW in general, the freedom performers like Hall and Nash had to just be themselves as the coolest act in the world made it more than just a larger than life personality on a wrestling program. The brilliant skits and angles, the creative sets, the awesome concepts like Road Wild and Spring Break Nitro. The chaotic aura about the show, the logos, the money, Bischoff's attitude, the ratings war, the passionate crowd, Hollywood, The Outsiders, Sting, Goldberg, Flair, Luger etc the deep talent roster, the stables, I miss everything about WCW and that entire period. 1996-1998 Nitro is the best wrestling TV of all time IMO along with WWF 98-01.
