[TV Review] Main Event – 1.20.91

WCW Main Event

Commentators: Jim Ross & Missy Hyatt

Main Event immediately follows World Championship Wrestling this week so luckily for us we’ll actually get to see the entirety of that 8-man tag between between Sting, Brian Pillman, & The Steiner Brothers and The Four Horsemen. Also on the show The Lightning Express reunites (I didn’t know they were even a team that broke up) to take on The Fabulous Freebirds and Missy Hyatt works out in preparation for her Arm Wrestling match with Paul E. Dangerously at COTC: Dixie Dynamite. There’s only about 40 minutes not including commercials on this episode so let’s see how they pack it all in.

The Lineup

  • Sting, Brian Pillman, & The Steiner Brothers vs. The Four Horsemen
  • The Southern Boys vs. Ed Brock & George South
  • The Danger Zone w/ Paul E. Dangerously & Ric Flair
  • The Lightning Express vs. The Fabulous Freebirds
  • Video: Missy Hyatt’s Workout

[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
