Re: WCW Discussion Thread

It's definitely weird that Giant went into WCW, got the biggest push out of anyone, instantly became a household name, had huge reactions, then two years later gets thrown in the midcard... backstage bullshit as usual. He definitely could have been a solid uppercard wrestler outside of the NWO storyline.

Can't believe he went and did this again with virtually the same content :

Dude... it's Scott Steiner. The man so awfully bad that he is entertaining, the stereotypical wrestler that non-wrestling fans think of to make fun of wrestling, the man crafted from the steroid gods. He DGAF.

Re: WCW Discussion Thread

Steiner towards the end of WCW was fucking unbearable. His matches were shit and I turned the channel everytime and listening to him try and spit a fucking promo out was cringeworthy

Re: WCW Discussion Thread

Scott Norton is a boss. His WCW work is actually pretty good. Don't know why I had this notion he was trash for so many years before I refreshed myself on watching the product again.

Don't really remember him. I know what he looks like and remember watching him, but honestly don't remember his gimmick or any of his matches. Got any recommended matches of his?

Other guys opinions, perhaps?

But yeah, I liked Norton's work. The true definition of a powerhouse in action. His tag team with Buff wasn't too bad, either.

Re: WCW Discussion Thread

I liked Norton a lot. I actually became a fan of his during his 'blink and you miss it' run in 1993. He nearly decapitated some jobber with a clothesline and I was like "Whoa! That Flash Norton guy is awesome! He's going to give Sting a run for his money!" Then he poofed.

But I always remembered him, so I might have been the only person in the US who was excited when he came back in 1995. He remained one of my favorites until I quit watching in August, 1996. I haven't seen a ton of his stuff, and tbh, I was always afraid I'd turn out to be like the anti-Hayley in that I was a Norton fan back in the day but think he sucks now. Anyway, he came off as a not-to-trifled-with badass. Like he was some sort of brick wall on the move. I expected him to be a much bigger star than he was.

I was nerdy enough to write a letter to WWF Magazine in 96-97 giving my detailed plans for how they could beat WCW One of my better ideas was to bring in Scott Norton. Norton/Bradshaw was my dream tag team at one time

My favorite Norton matches were the Ice Train series (I remember them being good hossfests, anyway) and Fire & Ice vs. Steiners.

Nah. Considering the only people I talked wrestling with was my brother and friends in my neighborhood. We were all kids so it couldn't have been some widespread thought process changing my mind. I just guess the lug did nothing for me at the time.

Good call. Vicious & Delicious were solid. Truth be told, while the match is fucked from a "psychological"/alignment standpoint, Norton & Bagwell worked well and nearly carried Harlem Heat to a tolerable match back at Road Wild '97. I say this b/c V&D legit worked the match as faces. They were over with the Sturgis crowd and it was straight out of bizarro world. Harlem Heat still sucked, but V&D put the effort in.

Indeed. Very much the opposite. The only joy I had as a youngster watching Norton was when he kept coming out to destroy Ernest Miller upon all of his various call out segments. Nowadays I'm watching Norton in a montage of clubberfests and I'm digging it. Always knew he brought it in Japan, however his WCW work was a total blur. Glad that's changed.

I remember liking the Ice Train matches too. My reaction was after watching "those...weren't bad." b/c I walked in previously with my mentality that Norton was a stinker, mind you. Matches where they clubber for five minutes are generally always a win with me.
