Not really. That's one of those internet myths.

Re: Do You Still Miss WCW?

It was horrible in the last 18 months or so, even worse than todays WWE.

But my god...when it was good (pretty much all the way up to 1999) it was truly fucking brilliant. It kicked the WWF's ass in terms of quality for most of the 90s in fact.

Re: Do You Still Miss WCW?

I'd take WCW in 1999 or a lot of 2000 over today's WWE. Both are bad though. The final few months of WCW in late 2000 and early 2001 were so brutal that even today's WWE is better. I can remember Sid and Steiner main eventing Starrcade without much build up at all and with all the creative team changes over the final year and a half or so of the company things rarely made sense.

Today's WWE gets away with a lackluster product because there's no competition. When WWE sucked in the mid 90's you could always switch over to Nitro and when WCW started to suck we could switch over to RAW. Now one is dead and we get the other shoved down our throat.

Re: Do You Still Miss WCW?

What I really miss is that old WCW formula. Shows with a great undercard for work rate and high spots, followed by big time Semi and Main Events that felt important even if the actual in-ring wasn't so great. There were things they did that Vince really didn't/doesn't have much interest in eg. Luchadores and Japanese talent.

Agree with El Chapo though, I miss ECW even more.

I love professional-wrestling.

Re: Do You Still Miss WCW?

Yes, especially on nights like tonight after watching RAW. Earlier I watched WCW Starrcade 1997 and WCW SuperBrawl VIII, and I remembered how good those of use who were kids during the MNW and AE had it- we had WCW, WWF, CMLL, AAA, (ooops, I meant WWE), and ECW. Now we just have WWE, TNA, CMLL, AAA, and if you're up late enough, and your provider will air it, ROH.
