Re: Official Match/DVD/Show Discussion Thread (And Stairs)

Watched the match for a very similar "project" and I thought it was excellent. It was given a large amount of time, which shocked me more than it should've, and they used every time so effectively. I think the match had a rep of shoehorning call backs to their indie runs without any real value (forgot where I heard that) but I was happy to see that the match was much more than that. A big plus for both guys resume of great matches. Shame their MITB didn't reach that standard. In another universe, it could've been one of the best feuds in WWE history. Oh well.

All Time Favourites:
Kazuchika Okada, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Eddie Guerrero, Toshiaki Kawada, Daniel Bryan, Kensuke Sasaki & Shinya Hashimoto

I write things sometimes. Always Wrestling related, obviously.

Punk/Bryan OTL was incredible. Don't think any match I've seen comes close to it since it happened.

I still consider it one of the best matches in WWE history.

WCW “Fall Brawl”
September 12th, 1999
From the Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Winston-Salem, North Carolina
Commentators: Tony Schiavone, Bobby “the Brain” Heenan and Mike Tenay

“Can Sting trust Hulk Hogan or Lex Luger?”

Tonight: Hulk Hogan verses Sting for the WCW World Heavyweight Championship and Chris Benoit defends the United States Championship against the 79-0 Sid Vicious

Vampiro & the Insane Clown Posse vs. Rey Mysterio Jr., Eddie Guerrero & Billy Kidman
Say what you want about the Insane Clown Posse; the fact that they still do wrestling twenty years after this should endure them to wrestling fans that they were there for no other reason other than that they wanted to be. That said they were extremely sloppy and green in this match, especially Shaggy 2 Dope. The crowd was extremely hot. Hotter than I’ve ever heard a WCW crowd.
Winners: Rey Mysterio Jr., Billy Kidman & Eddie Guerrero

The Revolution guarantee a clean sweep in all their matches tonight.

Recap of Lenny recently winning the WCW Cruiserweight Championship and Kaz Hayashi pinning him to win a match...a match that he was wrestling against Lodi...oh, WCW.

For the WCW Cruiserweight Championship
Kaz Hayashi vs. Lenny (champion) w/Lodi
This was a solid match that really didn’t matter.
Winner: Lenny

Mean Gene Okerlund brings Sting out to the ring. Sting says he has no problem with Hulk Hogan...until he gets in the ring with him tonight.

Video package of the Revolution’s feud with the First Family.

No Disqualifications
The First Family (Brian Knobs and Hugh Morris) w/Jimmy Hart vs. the Revolution (Shane Douglas and Dean Malenko)
The best part of this was Shane Douglas getting the Saginaw, Michigan crowd pumped up for the match. I can see saying the wrong city but he was over six hundred and fifty miles off. And of all the wrong cities to name, “Saginaw”? The match started out as a brawl but after the first five or so minutes became a standard wrestling match.
Winners: the First Family

Perry Saturn verses Rick Steiner promo.

For the WCW World Television Championship
Perry Saturn vs. Rick Steiner (champion)
This was a decent “big man” match but I really couldn’t get invested in.
Winner: Rick Steiner

Mean Gene Okerlund is with Hulk Hogan who swears he will not stab Sting in the back.

Berlyn w/the Wall vs. “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan
Considering this was Berlyns in-ring debut it went on way longer than it should have and Duggan got way too much offence in.
Winner: Berlyn
Buff Bagwell (who was supposed to have wrestled Berlyn in the previous match) just arrived at the arena. He goes to the ring and thanks Duggan for filling in for him but Duggan doesn’t seem impressed by his show of affection.

For the WCW World Tag Team Championships
Harlem Heat vs. the West Texas Rednecks (champions) w/Curt Hennig
This was a good Tag Team Match. I was really hoping Curly Bill would do a run-in.
Winners: Harlem Heat (new WCW World Tag Team Champions)

For the WCW United States Championship
Sid Vicious vs. Chris Benoit (champion)
This was okay. Benoit took a lot of shots to the head.
Winner: Sid Vicious (new WCW United States Champion and now 80-0)

Diamond Dallas Page vs. Goldberg
This didn’t have quite the fire of their match eleven months earlier at Halloween Havoc 1998 but it was still a much better wrestling match than you'd usually get from Goldberg.
Winner: Goldberg

For the WCW World Heavyweight Championship
Sting vs. Hulk Hogan (champion)
I was watching WCW in late-1999 but I have virtually no memory of Hogan going back to red and yellow and holding the World Heavyweight Championship. The ending was as should be expected with Diamond Dallas Page, Bret Hart, Sid Vicious and Lex Luger all running in before Sting pulled the turn and double-crossed Hogan.
Winner: Sting (new WCW World Heavyweight Champion)
This wasn’t too bad a show. It felt like a b-show. Nothing had that important feel to it. Even the main event. I was really surprised how much the crowd was into the entire show. Late-1999 WCW is often seen as a company in the early stages of dying but you wouldn’t have known that here. The first match was fun and the last four matches were good enough. Diamond Dallas Page verses Goldberg was the highlight.

The Revolution lost every single one of their matches.

This was the first Fall Brawl to not have a War Games match. The icon on the WWE Network said "WCW Fall Brawl: War Games" and that's why I chose it.

From Wikipedia:
Berlyn was originally supposed to face Buff Bagwell, but the storyline was that Bagwell was late in arriving. In reality, Bagwell had refused to lose the match. Instead Berlyn wrestled against Jim Duggan.

Check out my awesome band:
