[TV Review] World Championship Wrestling – 3.2.91

Commentators: Jim Ross & Paul E. Dangerously

World Championship Wrestling this week features championship action, as The Fabulous Freebirds defend the Tag Team Titles against The Lightning Express. A whole lot of other folks are in action as well, and Magnum Force technically main events WCW’s flagship show so I’d call this a win overall! Helluva return after a two-year hiatus that was totally on purpose and not because I lost my external hard drive and was too lazy to look for it.
