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

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!


Your hosts are Jim Ross & Bill Watts. Read the rest of this entry

WCW World Television Champion: Johnny B. Badd (10/29/1995)

To set this concept show up and it is pretty simple, a stereotypical Japanese guy named Sonny Oono (one of Bischoff’s real-life kickboxing buddies) entered WCW a few months back as an international consultant and told everybody that the athletes from Japan could beat American wrestlers any day of the week. WCW Read the rest of this entry

Hogan cuts the bizarre promo I’ve ever seen him associated with. He’s dressed up like an Emo Zorro. He’s wearing a black cloak, a black mask, black gloves, a crucifix and he’s holding an Excalibur sword while he’s supposedly in a grave yard. Anyways, Hogan says he wants Randy Savage to bring him Read the rest of this entry
