WCW Main Event

Commentators: Jim Ross & Missy Hyatt

This week’s featured match is a tag team contest between The Fabulous Freebirds and the weird mash-up of goofy gimmicks team Trucker Norman and The Juicer. This is Juicer’s one and only appearance in 1991 as he was fired due to sexual assault allegations stemming from his time in Portland. Starting a review on a downer, that’s my jam.

The Lineup

  • Michael Wallstreet vs. Dave Johnson
  • The Danger Zone w/ Paul E. Dangerously
  • Tommy Rich vs. Buddy Landell
  • Allen Iron Eagle & Tim Horner vs. George South & Doug Vines
  • Lex Luger vs. Mike Hart
  • Trucker Norman & The Juicer vs. The Fabulous Freebirds

[TV Review] World Championship Wrestling – 1.5.91

WCW SN 1991

Commentators: Jim Ross & Bob Caudle

Before it was called Saturday Night the flagship show of World Championship Wrestling was simply known as…World Championship Wrestling. This changes soon enough during 1991 so I’m going to still tag it as Saturday Night on the website. The feud between Terry Taylor and Arn Anderson reaches its conclusion this week as the two face off once again, but this time there will supposedly be a clear and distinct winner. The Z-Man also makes his first defense of the Television Title against a…masked gimmick character from the Buddy Rogers era. WCW rules, man.

The Lineup

  • Sid Vicious vs. Pablo Crenshaw
  • Brian Pillman vs. Rip Rogers
  • Bobby Eaton vs. Reno Riggins
  • The Renegade Warriors vs. Ed Brock & Chuck Coats
  • Minotaur vs. Mountain Man Bailey
  • Lex Luger vs. Mike Samples
  • Michael Wallstreet vs. Greg(g) Sawyer
  • Tom Zenk (c) vs. Dr. X for the WCW World Television Championship
  • The Fabulous Freebirds vs. Keith Hart & Jamie McKinnon
  • WCW Classics w/ Gordon Solie
  • Terry Taylor vs. Arn Anderson
  • JR Interviews Lawrence Taylor
  • Tim Horner vs. George South

Worldwide is the third (!) of four (!!) shows to air on Saturday from WCW. Granted it’s syndication so it did probably vary from area to area but I’m going with the stuff I’ve seen on the internet and the internet never lies to me. Main event is, uh, Ricky Morton vs. Bobby Eaton but not the one from Power Hour. In fact it turns out the Power Hour one was from two weeks ago and originally aired on Worldwide. WCW continuity is going to drive me crazier than I already am, can’t wait!

The Lineup

  • The Master Blasters vs. Pablo Crenshaw & Todd Brewer
  • Dutch Mantell vs. Dave Johnson
  • Wrestling Wrap-Up w/ Gordon Solie
  • Tom Zenk vs. Tim Hughes
  • The Big Cat vs. Jamie McKinnon
  • Ricky Morton vs. Bobby Eaton
  • Michael Wallstreet vs. Scott Sadlin
