If you haven't checked the PSP-TV Thread one of the final two unscreened WCW on QVC specials was uploaded. Apparently Mike Tenay shared it with the uploader. What a guy.

I saw Scott Steiner at a small show a couple years ago. On one hand, he is taller than he looked on TV. On the other hand, he appears to be in pain when he stands up.

The New Blood having legitimate grievances is the best lie anybody ever told.

It was a stable of mostly talentless wrestlers (and a few worthwhile wrestlers who quickly left and/or ran of into their own stable (No, not the Natural Born Thrillers)) that were suddenly treated as top guys.

Younger, newer, hungrier wrestlers who only want to perform tired of being held down by old men desperate to do anything to hold on to their spots at the top.

This is the definition of a legitimate grievance.

The New Blood angle was definitely inspired by the perception that WCW was an old boys' club where new talent couldn't get a chance. Bischoff and Russo were being kinda shifty about it by saying "Okay yeah here's the young guys who want a chance against the old stars, they're the heels", and of course the New Blood were rarely booked well (to the point that they'd fallen apart by the time they got to the PPV with their name on it.)

It didn't help that a bunch of New Blood guys were 10-15 year vets, like Bam Bam Bigelow, Mike Awesome, and Kanyon.

Bam Bam Bigelow was in the New Blood in 2000 even though he was at the very first Survivor Series in 1987.
