Re: Do You Still Miss WCW?

I miss everything that happened before Russo came. He completely ruined it.

But before he came, WCW was the best. Even back as a kid, I used to love those "Up All Night" marathons they would show, waking up at 9:05 to watch WCW Power Hour. Back when wrestling was fun and everything made sense because my expectations wasn't really high. And I used to really be upset when somebody would beat up Sting, it would have me teary eyed.

Basically, yes, I miss WCW. But, I miss ECW even more.

Re: Do You Still Miss WCW?

Sure, although admittedly the feeling is mostly due to nostalgia. WCW was what brought me to the dance, wrestling-wise. I was a WCW guy way before I was a WWE guy, even into the years where the product was clearly inferior.

Re: Do You Still Miss WCW?

At the very least it was a solid alternative. Once the TV deals fell through, that was the end.

Re: Do You Still Miss WCW?

When I was a kid I didn't get to order PPV often so I really miss Nitro where they tried to make so many shows PPV quality.

But for PPVs, I also miss the atmosphere of things like Bash at the Beach on a beach or Road Wild at Sturgis because those looked so fucking cool, even though they were bad business decisions because of the free gates.

Re: Do You Still Miss WCW?

No, because I got over it. It hurts to think about how bad WWE has gotten without competition, though.

Re: Do You Still Miss WCW?

Yes, up till 98 very much so going back to the 80's. As sad as I was at the time to see this company go along with ECW, They have both been replaced by ROH and TNA. In some ways the wrestling landscape is similar to what it was in the late 90's promotion wise which is good imo.

Re: Do You Still Miss WCW?

I sure do. Mostly from 1983-1990 then 1995-1999 the rest (not sure about stuff earlier than the 80's) only had a few decent things once in a while IMO.

Yeah, without a doubt. I grew up watching WCW before getting into WWE.

Re: Do You Still Miss WCW?

Living in the uk I enjoyed wcw but the one thing that let it down at the time for me was I was never able to see the pay per views as it was long before I learnt to download.
