We first go to Bill Watts and Tony Schiavone. Watts announces that Van Hammer’s arm hurts and now he can’t compete with Vinnie Vegas in the arm wrestling match. Tony Atlas is his replacement. Yeah, if Hammer was going to lose anyway, might as well have Vinnie beat a black guy. Right, Bill? Also, there’s been a situation between Bill’s son Erik Watts and Arn Anderson. Sounds like Erik’s been arrested! Tonight, Erik Watts has been suspended for PR reasons.

Larry Zbyszko is standing by with Erik Watts right now: Watts stumbles through the interview, denying the accusations and saying that he understands what his daddy had to do.

Your hosts are Jim Ross and Jesse Ventura. This would be JR’s last major show in WCW before heading to the WWF to wear a toga. Read the rest of this entry

Clash of the Champions #19 (06.92)

Clash of the Champions XIX
June 22, 1992
Charleston, SC
McAllister Fieldhouse

I know this really isn’t a good note to start out on, but according to ProWrestlingHistory.com, this was the lowest-rated Clash on TBS for the first 20 shows with just a 2.8. The lowest-rated Clash ever got a 2.6 one year later when some guys named Steve Austin & Brian Pillman took on Ric Flair & Arn Anderson in a main-event match that still makes people’s ears perk up today when they hear about the combination. Just something meaningless that I thought was sort of interesting.

On this night, WCW has brought in guys from all over the globe to compete in the first round of the NWA World Tag Titles tournament!

Your hosts are JR & Jesse! (Jesse’s first Clash and he’s pumped up!) Read the rest of this entry
