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)
  • Tom Zenk (c) vs. Moondog Rex for the WCW TELEVISION CHAMPIONSHIP (Pro – 1.12.91)

[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
