WCW Saturday Night (02.26.94)

WCW Saturday Night
February 26, 1994
Atlanta, GA
Center Stage Theatre

The current WCW Champs were as follows:
WCW World Champion: Ric Flair (12/27/1993)
WCW International World Champion: Rick Rude (9/19/1993)
WCW U.S. Champion: Steve Austin (12/27/1993)
WCW World Tag Team Champions: The Nasty Boys (10/24/1993)
WCW World Television Champion: Lord Steven Regal (9/19/1993)

We are a week out from Superbrawl IV where Ric Flair retained the WCW world title over Vader in a THUNDERCAGE match. As special referee, The (Big) Boss (Man) was a huge help in that match for Ric Flair which will lead to the Vader-Boss feud that causes Boss to get a name AND gimmick change and takes us WAY into the fall. But before Superbrawl IV, Ricky Steamboat was whipped (WHIPPED LIKE A DOG!) by Vader and now he wants a match with the Mastodon himself! That’s not very bright, Ricky. Heenan thinks that evidently Steamboat has his insurance paid up because that’s the only thing he can come up for a reason to want to get in the ring with Vader.

Your hosts are Tony Schiavone and Bobby Heenan. Funny how they updated the show intro, but not the set. Read the rest of this entry

WCW Saturday Night (08.01.92)

WCW Saturday Night
August 1, 1992
Atlanta, GA
Center Stage Theatre

The current WCW & NWA Champs were as follows:
WCW World Champion: Big Van Vader (7/12/1992)
WCW U.S. Champion: Rick Rude (11/19/1991)
WCW World Television Champion: Steve Austin (6/13/1992)
WCW World Light Heavyweight Champion: Brad Armstrong (7/5/1992)
WCW/NWA World Tag Team Champions: Dr. Death & Terry Gordy (7/12/1992)

Before the program, we see a past interview where the TV champ Steve Austin calls Ricky Steamboat yellow for ducking a title shot because he was home nursing some hurt ribs. Therefore, no more title shots for Ricky Steamboat. Well, Steamboat rips off his Ralph Lauren polo to reveal taped ribs. That proves everything!

TNA Slammiversary 2005

TNA Slammiversary
June 19, 2005
Orlando, FL
Universal Studios

The current NWA & TNA Champs were as follows:
NWA World Champion: AJ Styles (5/15/2005)
NWA World Tag Team Champions: The Naturals (4/29/2005)
TNA X-Division Champion: Christopher Daniels (3/13/2005)

In a moment that had everybody smiling who said that TNA would never last, TNA loses its cable deal with Fox Sports Net and were forced to make their weekly iMPACT show exclusive on their website until they finally scored a deal with Spike TV which debuted iMPACT on October 1. It’s certainly an arguable point, but TNA’s greatest PPV period quality-wise could have very well happened when they didn’t even have a TV deal – starting with this PPV and into Unbreakable in September, which is best remembered as a show that included the greatest match ever in TNA history: AJ Styles vs. Christopher Daniels vs. Samoa Joe.

TNA Hard Justice 2005

TNA Hard Justice

NWA World Champion: Jeff Jarrett (6/2/2004)
NWA World Tag Team Champions: The Naturals (4/29/2005)
TNA X-Division Champion: Christopher Daniels (3/13/2005)

Chris Candido gets a nice ten bell salute in the Impact Zone before anything else happens. He died on April 28 2005 due to complications with a blood clot in his broken leg after surgery.

TNA iMPACT! (05.06.05)



TNA iMPACT!
May 6, 2005
Orlando, FL
Universal Studios

The current NWA & TNA Champs were as follows:
NWA World Champion: Jeff Jarrett (6/2/2004)
NWA World Tag Team Champions: America’s Most Wanted (1/16/2005)
TNA X-Division Champion: Christopher Daniels (3/13/2005)

For this recap, we go back to when iMPACT was just an hour-long show at 3PM on a Friday afternoon on your local Fox Sports Network. Good times. This particular episode of iMPACT is special for two reasons: most importantly it is the final TV appearance of Chris Candido before his untimely death and there’s also a significant title change at least at the time.
