Simple question really. Never really looked into NWA/WCW too much and I wondered what are some good PPVs to see. I'm not into shows that just have a strong historical importance and more about shows just being highly enjoyable.

Re: Best NWA/WCW PPVs?

Wrestling wise, here's the top 3 WCW PPVs:

Fall Brawl 96 (5 good-very good matches and a very entertaining main event)
Bash at the Beach 97 (Dragon/Jericho; Steiners/Chono & Muta; Lucha 6 Men tag; Benoit/Sullivan; Flair/Piper)
Halloween Havoc 97 (MOTY between Eddie/Rey; Nagata/Dragon, Gedo/Jericho; DDP/Davage)

I think you will also enjoy the first half of the 98 PPVs as well as the first half of the 99 PPVs except Souled Out.

Also check out Halloween Havoc 99 not for any good wrestling but just for entertainment value.

Starrcade '85...Blanchard vs. Magnum I Quit match (one of my fave matches ever) is worth it alone IMHO. Not to mention Rhodes-Flair, Rock n'Roll Express vs. Koloffs, and Manny Fernandez vs. Abdullah the Butcher in a Mexican Death Match.

Beach Blast '92...Sting vs. Cactus Jack falls-count-anywhere, Dr. Death/Terry Gordy vs. Steiners, and Rick Rude vs. Rick Steamboat in an Iron Man Match

Starrcade '95...the World Cup between WCW and NJPW was good...matches such as Otani vs. Eddie Guerrero, Liger vs. Benoit, and Savage vs. Tenzan...not to mention Flair vs. Luger vs. Sting in a triple-threat match, leading to Flair beating Savage later in the night to win the WCW World title.

Re: Best NWA/WCW PPVs?

I've been re-watching the last year or two of WCW and Fall Brawl 2000 was surprisingly very good imo.

Goldberg/Steiner was a classic imo. That might have been Goldberg's best match ever and one of Steiner's best as well.

Jeff Jarrett hilariously blasted Gary Coleman (yes, the celebrity midget) with a guitar toward the end of his match with Mike Awesome.

MIA/3 count 6 man tag was also good.

The scaffold match with Shane Douglas and Kidman had a cool spot at the end when Kidman got thrown off.

Booker T./Nash in a cage was okay too.
