Commentators: Jim Ross & Paul E. Dangerously

Power Hour starts of WCW’s weekend of shows by re-airing a bunch of stuff from the past two weeks of Pro. Back then it made sense as Pro didn’t air everywhere and Power Hour was on TBS. Watching it now, however…different story.

The Lineup

  • Minotaur vs. Keith Hart (Pro – 1.19.91)
  • The Master Blasters vs. Tim Parker & Scott Allen (Pro – 1.19.91)
  • Rick Steiner vs. Mike Samples (Pro – 1.19.91)
  • Wrestling News Network w/ Gordon Solie
  • Brian Pillman vs. Lt. James Earl Wright (Pro – 1.19.91)
  • Terry Taylor vs. Joe Barrett (Pro – 1.19.91)
