wasn't Nash presumably killed off, (along with the angle, of course)? Then a couple of months later he bragged about how he worked everyone on booking his own retirement commentating on Thunder.

Edit: People were actually rooting for Sting over Hogan, . No one really gave two shits about face Hogan.

No, Nash was wrestling 6 days later at the Bash PPV. The "working everyone" refers to his "retirement" after Road Wild two months later.

with the radicals in wwf wcw could not claim to have the best wrestler in the world so they might as well have got rid of the big gold belt

Re: WCW Discussion Thread because people get asshurt about JUST RUSSO

Do you guys remember HOW Hogan went back to the red and yellow motif? Oh my god. Lets say it involves Nick Hogan and a cheesy component to going towards "turning a new leaf."

Wished I could find the video.

Partially. I think it was on YouTube at one point before it was taken down.

Re: WCW Discussion Thread because people get asshurt about JUST RUSSO

For the shit that came about in 1999 and 2000, Jim Herd can not go without criticism. His reign of terror certainly damaged the company in 1990 - 1991, after a superb 1989:
  • Chamber of Horrors
  • Robocop
  • The noriously awful Oz
  • Ron Simmon's boring title reign
  • WWF influenced one dimensional gimmicks (P.N. News. Big Josh, Black Blood, Johnny B Badd, Firebreaker Chip, Arachnman)
  • Brian Pillman becoming the Yellow Dog
  • The confusion over the name of the company, show and introduction of a new world title
  • Breaking up the Rock N Roll Express
  • The Black Scorpion debackle happened on his watch
  • Crap wrestlers receiving pushing which went nowhere - El Gigante, Van Hammer, One Man Gang, Bill Kazmaier, Motor City Madman

Road Warriors, Jim Cornette and Ric Flair left the company because of him.

sadly ironic that Chris Daniels, AJ Styles, Elix Skipper and James Storm were in WCW when it died

If only I owned that Nitro. I have to see the craptastic moment one more time.

OZ - nominated for best gimmick ever. Hiring random people to play the Wizard of Oz crew during his entrance was the best (or worst?) part.

CHIP THE FIREBREAKER according to Tony Schiavone. Soooo many memories.

A few other ones you missed:

The Creatures
http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x4m...t#.UQiNd2cgSqk

With probably the worst rap in history by PN News.

Halloween Phantom from Halloween Havoc 1991: this has to be seen, Schiavone totally spoils the surprise that the Phantom is Rick Rude by saying "that Phantom has a mustache...and his finisher looks exactly like the Rude Awakening"
http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x4m...t#.UQiNd2cgSqk

Van Hammer



The Young Pistols (Tracy Smothers and Steve Armstrong)



The other half of the Patriots, Todd Champion (to go along with Firebreaker Chip)



The York Foundation, where instead of Terry Taylor we had Terrance Taylor, Richard Morton instead of Ricky Morton, and Alexandra York with her cinder block sized computer that could figure out every single weakness of an opponent.




This is all from ONE PPV, Halloween Havoc 1991. This show must be watched, its the epitome of 1991 WCW badness.



Shield 2.0, Brah!

Seth with J&J Security=One of the few reasons to watch WWE
