Default Did anyone ever call them WCW hotlines back in the day?

I never got the chance to but I remember kids in school saying they did. And would they really tell you who was comming over from other companies?

I would call them all the time as a kid but damn, the phone bill was outrageous.

But the only truthful crossover I remember is Jericho coming to WWE but it was only halfway right. According to the hotline I called, he was supposed to debut under the name of X-Calibur and join DX.

No, but called the WWF hotline and me and my brother got grounded for a month after the gigantic phone bill came in. Our folks were not happy at all.

I remember reading in the Observer that in 1993, WWE had some kind of deal on their hotline where they wanted fans to vote whether or not WWE should reinstate Shawn Michaels (in reality, he quit/was fired/suspended after failing a drug test) and you would pick his first opponent back.

Well, it turns out that HBK had already returned and had been working house shows prior to the hotline starting the poll. IIRC, Meltzer said they had to reimburse money to callers, at it was rather expensive to call in the first place and because the votes didn't matter, as HBK technically was already reinstated.

He also talked about WCW doing a deal where they would hype up something on their hotlines about something in WWE and never came through on it. Weirdly enough, WCW used to have live play by play for their PPV's on their hotline. Hate to see what that phone bill looked like.

I just remember that the first couple minutes was all about them promoting their new dates so you wasted at least 3 bucks on that.

Never called the WCW hotline but I called the ECW hardcore hotline all the time. I remember they told me one time that WWF was close to a deal with Flair in 1999. Another time they told me ECW was about to sign Kanyon and Bam Bam back when they were the Jersey Triad in WCW. Of course that never happened and Bam Bam had already had one run in ECW and the money wasn't right so no way he would return after getting a larger payday in WCW. Didn't know that at the time I was still a kid haha

I never called either but always wanted to.

I used to check the headlines on teletext advertising a hotline, with like "SHAMROCK RETURNING FOR WM!?" Haha, I never did though, my parents wouldn't have been happy. My Mum let me use her mobile to ring the Power Slam once and it took all of her credit before I got anywhere.

How much the WCW/WWF hotlines cost back in the day?
