Re: Do You Still Miss WCW?

Not only do I miss it, the sport itself misses it. Without competition, the WWE has become imo almost unwatchable.

Tony Schiavone, Bobby Heenan, NWO, Goldberg, the less than stellar production values, the on-air gaffes, even the storylines that went nowhere and made you think "wtf are they thinking?" I miss all of it.

Re: Do You Still Miss WCW?

There's a lite version of WCW, Thursday nights on Spike

I miss it, sure. Cruiserweight division, a legitimate competitor to WWE, and a collection of great characters with sound history.

Psshhhh, Im sure down the street some 14 year olds are doing some backyard show that looks just like ECW Barley Legal...I kidding, I kidding.

But WCW at its peak 1997-early 1999 was such a great product, I have yet to see a better period of time from one company.

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.

Nitro was like a party every week, Hall & Nash with their hawaiwan shirts at Spring Break, Hollywood Hogan's long godlike promos every week, nWo shirts and signs everywhere, we will never see that kind of atmosphere in wrestling again.

Re: Do You Still Miss WCW?

I don't necessarily miss WCW itself, but I miss the competition aspect of it. WCW kept the WWE on their toes for the most part and it really kept the product exciting. While TNA is out there, it doesn't match up to WCW (especially 96-98) as far as steady competition goes. However, by the time 2000-01 rolled around that company was turning into garbage, that I don't miss that part of it. However, when the Monday Night Wars were huge and it was a battle between fans liking Raw or Nitro. To this day me and my tattoo artist talk about the Monday Night War. He was a WCW fan and I was a WWE fan.

Simply enough WCW itself is just a name and I don't miss it. I miss the competition that WWE had. If TNA could step up their game. I would be perfectly happy looking at that as the equivalent of WCW today.

No wcw felt forced by the time they switched to that star logo. They had 600 people on their roster and their undercard was a revolving door,creative control was an awful stable along wit the powers that be. Every one enterance music was extremely low and their entrance videos were the same 3 clips. People can cry about WCW leaving but it was shitt last 2 years
