Footnotes:
[1]: When WCW withdrew from the NWA in January 1991, the Steiners U.S. tag title reign carried over into the first WCW U.S. Tag Team title reign. They won the WCW World Tag Team titles in March and therefore had to relinquish the belts.
[2]: This was a tournament final.
[3]: The WCW U.S. Tag Team titles were retired in July 1992.

Starrcade 1991

WCW Starrcade 1991: Battlebowl – The Lethal Lottery
December 29, 1991
Norfolk, VA
The Scope

The current WCW Champs were as follows:
World Champion: Lex Luger (7/14/1991)
U.S. Champion: Rick Rude (11/19/1991)
World Television Champion: Steve Austin (6/3/1991)
World Light Heavyweight Champion: Jushin Liger (12/25/1991)
World Tag Team Champions: Ricky Steamboat & Dustin Rhodes (11/19/1991)
U.S. Tag Team Champions: The Young Pistols (11/5/1991)

This is the debut of Dusty Rhodes latest project known as Battlebowl: The Lethal Lottery. The concept is simple; forty guys have their names put into a spinning bingo-like container. Each name is drawn out of the container by Eric Bischoff, Missy Hyatt and Magnum TA until there are collectively twenty random tag teams. Why does it take three people to draw out names? I have no idea. Anyways, these teams face off in the order their names were drawn and the winners of those matches are entered in a two-ring battle royal known as Battlebowl. Winner gets a Battlebowl ring. Kind of like earning a Super Bowl ring, but WAY less prestigious since who wins is already decided.

Your hosts are Jim Ross & Tony Schiavone. I think I saw Jim Herd in the front row with a Magnum TA shirt on. He’s like the very first person you see. Read the rest of this entry

Magnum TA is continuing to do his job as a “broadcast journalist” and find out what the HECK Lex Luger is doing with Harley Race and why he’s got such an attitude change. Today, he’s going to meet up with Lex Luger’s old pal Sting on “Straight Talk with the Boss”. Hopefully, we’ll actually get some answers this week!
