WCW Saturday Night (02.26.94)

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

The Eliminators are in the back, as John Kronus is shaving his hair off, while Perry Saturn is laughing with the title in his hand. John is saying does he think they care about his hair; then he says he will eliminate you (referring to Pitbulls). Read the rest of this entry

WCW World Television Champion: Lord Steven Regal (9/19/1993)

The intro to the show is just DY-NO-MITE by the way. It’s one of those high-budget deals where they spent more money on production, than they’ll make from ticket sales. Tony Schiavone invites some innocent young trick-or-treaters into his home because they’re looking for a scary time. Since the kids aren’t impressed when Tony tells them about “spin the wheel, make the deal”, he rips off his face to reveal that he’s actually a big, huge fly monster. Not fly like in the ’70s, he’s a big insect that annoys the crap out of you.

Your hosts are Tony Schiavone and Jesse Ventura. Tony’s dressed up as Jesse Ventura while Jesse decides to be an evil gynecologist for Halloween. Right. Read the rest of this entry
