An intoxicated Scott Hall is shown walking around backstage carrying a paper sack with sounds like glass inside. He finds Doug Dellinger and tells him to go find out who wrecked his car. You know you’re in the nWo, right? Why should Dellinger help you? Dellinger suggests Hall go find some coffee, but Hall doesn’t like being told what to do – especially by a guy like Doug Dellinger. Ehh, who can blame him? Hall sarcastically tells Dellinger that his car will be easy to find because it’s the one that’s wrecked. Sounds like Scott Hall is ready to wrestle tonight.

NITRO GIRLS!

HOUR NUMBER ONE! Your hosts are Tony Schiavone, Mike Tenay, and Larry Zbyszko. Tony announces Scott Hall will be in the main event teaming up with the Giant against Kevin Nash and Lex Luger. Will the WCW world tag titles finally get defended tonight? Just maybe? Read the rest of this entry

WWE Network: The Best of WWE – The Best of Halloween Havoc

WWE Network
THE BEST OF WWE:
The Best of Halloween Havoc

Does it come across to children that WWE is responsible for EVERYTHING on their network? Obviously to us old nerds, we know otherwise, but the way it’s presented, it looks WWE is creatively responsible for the world’s wrestling. IS IT JUST ME? I don’t know. Read the rest of this entry

NWA: Georgia Championship Wrestling (12.08.79)

Georgia Championship Wrestling
December 8, 1979
Atlanta, GA
WTBS-17 Studios

The current GCW champs are as follows:
NWA World Heavyweight Champion: Harley Race (11/7/1979)
NWA Georgia Heavyweight Champion: The Masked Superstar (12/7/1979)
NWA Georgia Tag Team Champions: Ivan Koloff & Alexis Smirnoff (12/7/1979)
NWA Georgia Television Champion: Austin Idol (12/7/1979)

TIME FOR SOMETHING DIFFERENT. That’s right. We need to take a break from the WWF and see what else is happening around the world of wrestling here at the end of 1979 and where better to look than at Georgia Championship Wrestling. While this show is incomplete and jumps around, it’s available here on YouTube for all of us to enjoy and there’s enough action here to warrant a watch.

If you’ll notice the champions listed above, Georgia now has THREE NEW CHAMPIONS all in the span of one evening. I don’t know if that is due to lack of knowledge of when the titles changed hands so the researcher added the date of the title changes and chose the day prior to the airing of this show to list the title changes or what exactly. The Masked Superstar defeated Tommy Rich to regain the Georgia Heavyweight title, the Georgia Tag Team champs Ivan Koloff and Alexis Smirnoff beat Ole Anderson and Jerry Brisco, while Austin Idol pinned Ray Candy to win the Georgia TV title. If all of that happened in the same night, it’s pretty incredible and probably should have been mentioned on the show. MAYBE IT WAS. Since this show is incomplete, it’s not really fair to say for sure, so we’ll just move on.

In other news, there’s some interesting babyfaces and you’ll want to see who they are if you enjoy this era of wrestling. So, check it out.

We start the show with a recap video highlighting what went down last week as John Cena battled Randy Orton to earn another shot at the WWE championship. To add to the drama, Triple H – who is supposed to face Randy Orton at WrestleMania for the WWE title – was made the special referee. No favors were shown to Orton, John Cena won the match by pinfall to make the WrestleMania main event now a triple-threat match, and then Triple H left them both laying in the center of the ring with PEDIGREES and stood tall over top of them with the WWE title in hand.
