The OP is a really great post summarizing the death of WCW but I can't believe you didn't mention Watt's ridiculous old school mentality of having over-the-top-rope DQs and no climbing the turnbuckles.

No it isn't.

First of all, it involves THREE CAGES. You need to climb up the structure through three cages to get the belt. So, you've combined a cage match with a ladder match. On top of this, the second cage is full of weapons. So you've combined a weapons match, a cage match, and a ladder match.

Then you add in the War Games teams. So you've got a Team based Cage match combined with a ladder match combined with a weapons match. War Games has Royal Rumble entrances, so you have a Royal Rumble style staggered entrances in a team based triple cage/ladder/weapons match.

On top of this, the teams had to qualify for the match, and some of the matches were handi cap matches.

THAT IS loving COMPLICATED!

In its most simple form, wrestling matches are: Two Guys Fight in a ring.

In its most simple form this match is: 8 Guys who enter at different times fight while attempting to climb up three cages to get a belt and then attempt to escape with the belt.

And this was done on Nitro. Durf.

Nothing in the WCW games will ever match the sheer WTF-ness of WCW Thunder's dance mode.

Thunder and Nitro were such weird games with the monster characters and crazy stages. If the game had better (any) playability I probably would have loved it.

There was a short period between 1998-2001 where EVERYTHING had a card game. That said, I don't even remember this existing.

Did WWE ever make a serious but unsuccessful effort to recruit a WCW guy?
I can only think of guys who were eager to jump like Jericho or the handful of guys who took Time Warner buyouts as soon as possible.

Was JR just a hands off kind of guy? He tells a story of how he met with Rey and told him to hang out and rest his injuries, and the contract offer would be on the table when his Time Warner deal was up a year later.

Sting?

The best part about wasting all that money on Master P was that it got the borderline racist heels over, which was not WCW's intention at all.

Hey that rap is crap song was catchy.

Here's something I totally forgot about :

Remember when Chuck Palumbo won the WCW title?

I completely forgot about this, on the 8-21-00 Nitro he had a match with Booker where he got a crooked pin in a title match. The Cat declared the match invalid, but Booker wouldn't take the belt back so The Cat restarted the match. Chuck Palumbo, sort of kind of not really WCW Champion.

We found it. The missing link. A worse champion than David Arquette yet not as bad as Vince Russo.

They wanted to test the crowd reaction the WCW product and the best top guys they could get were Booker T and Bagwell. Bagwell's name got a huge pop when Vince was doing a promo a week or two prior so he thought he must be a big star. A better idea would have been Booker vs. Lance Storm, or ideally no WCW match at all since they were going to be used as an invading force anyway and should have been a united team.

They weren't set to be an invading force at that point. Vince wanted to push a WCW TV show but the name was so poisoned that he couldn't find TV for it.

I'm interested in experimenting with a podcast about WCW. Figured I'd throw out an interest check in here for people who have been watching a whole lot of it. PM me or whatever.
