Kane was the fake diesel when kevin nash had the belt in the 90s, also
That's because it isn't. Vince runs more of a kid's show these days, and he will admit that to you.
Paul Heyman (Paul E. Dangerously) put it best in a shoot interview, when he said that the wrestling business was like the tech industry. It was a bubble that had to burst & it did & Vince ending up being Bill Gates. But yeah the Monday Night Wars was the ish! I miss both WCW & ECW.
I was watching the new ECW DVD on Netflix earlier today. Watched a hardcore tag team match that involved RVD, Sabu, Rhino, and Perry Saturn. Was the good ole days. RVD can still put on very entertaining matches in TNA, but he was an athletic freak in ECW.
RVD is my favorite wrestler ever. This is a great match
Rob Van Dam and Sabu team up to take on the high flying duo of Hayabusa and Jinsei Shinzaki - ECW Heatwave. (8/2/98) #wweclassics
Not guilty y'all got to feel me
TNA Turning Point starting now. Great card tonight and should be entertaining.
Really looking forward to Roode vs. Styles vs. Storm.

I never got into WCW. The NWO taking over got boring. At one point it seemed like they had 20 members and they were all the top dogs in the entire company. Only people left were Goldberg, DDP and Sting it felt like. WWF's roster was rock solid in the 90's. Such awesome young talent. Even as Bret Hart left, you still had a really young Rock, Tripe H, Shawn Michaels in his prime, Stone Cold. Undertaker and Mankind, Goldust. They had very creative writers back then especially for personas.
I dream of a day when chickens can cross the road without having their motives questioned.
That was kind of the point. The few faces against the impossible odds.

You should prepare yourself to live with the consequences of your decisions, whatever they may be.
Gotta give some live to the Von Erich's. even though I think they are all dead
Guys...didn't know I'd have this many responses! Thanks...definitely brings back some great memories of when wrestling was great. Now...not so much.
I watched wrestling religiously all the way up till i graduated highschool in 2003 and then I stopped because life got a lot busier. I can't even watch it now. The way some of the characters look now is just cartoonish and just plain gay. There just used to be a lot of badasses and all I see now are a bunch of pansies.
I mean I get it. But it was like beating a dead horse after 4 years of the same thing.
They def wore it out. But when NWO first hit & for about 2 years they were the ish.
And that is why WCW failed. The writers failed the company, even with having the deepest roster.
Just a crazy good roster, but all wasted with terrible writing.
IMO, 1996-1998, WCW had the best run in pro wrestling history. Sting playing his Crow character, the rebel, coming down from the rafters and terrorizing the NWO was the best character in wrestling history. This is still one of my favorite moments in wrestling history.
They ultimately failed because guys like Hogan, Nash & Hall had huge guaranteed contracts & full creative control. They were past their primes & held down young highly talented guys like Jericho, Guerrero, Benoit & Mysterio. If WCW would have pushed those guys & gave them a shot they still may be in business today. Still wish they were though.
Wrestling has hit a bottom because of WCW not being in business still imho. WWE is just gay now. Everyone is an ass kisser to the fans, nobody has a good persona. I'm really tired of the two heavyweight title belts. Have one top dog in the company and leave it like that. It's stupid to have 2. The tag team devision is putrid. The girls all suck. Bringing back Lesner just for a match or two was lame. Either tell him to be in or tell him to fug off. Why even sell his merch if he's not even going to wrestle? Punk is alright. Everyones music sucks dick now. They're all Creed songs basically. Idk. It's just hardly worth watching imho.
Agree. I don't watch anymore and haven't in probably almost 10 years -- I'll check it out if I catch it on and I'm always disappoint. Instead, I watch old stuff and pretend it's new. Download all the old Nitros from '96-'98, the Attitude Era Raws, and the original ECW stuff, and you'll be good to go for another 5 years. I missed a lot of the ECW stuff so it's all new to me.

Yeah, for the most part wrestling is lame now. But back from the mid 90's early 2000's it was the golden age. There was something for everyone. You had WWF, WCW & ECW. You'll love the original ECW stuff, if you haven't seen it yet. They were nuts & had a lot of talented guys until WCW & WWF started raiding their roster, but somehow Paul E. always found new young guys to plug in & keep it going. Sadly it started to go down around the same time WCW did & Vince gobbled that up as well.
Where do you download them from? Piratebay?
edit: nevermind found it

Already have more respect for Shane Douglas. Never cared for him in WWF or even WCW after ECW, but in ECW, he's awesome. Even had the perfect sidekick skank.
1."The Legion of Doom" -(Road Warriors, King Kong Bundy, The Spoiler, Jake "The Snake" Roberts) Paul Ellering-Manager
2. Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat
3. Junkyard Dog- watched him bench 405 for 5-6 easy reps at Gold's Gym in Montgomery in 1993. JYD is now deceased.
4. Austin Idol- maybe not as well-known but he was big-time in South Alabama in the early/mid 1980s
5. The 4 Horseman (Rick Flair, Arn Anderson, Tully Blanchard, Lex Luger)
****Special note to Brad Armstrong (Real family surname James) who along with his 3 brothers (which include Road Dog Jesse James) were the wrestling sons of "Bullet" Bob Armstrong. Had the chance to meet Brad at a supplement store here in ATL Metro 1.5-2 years ago. He looked great at the time.... Muscular/Lean at age 49-50. Brad passed away on Nov 1st.
