I feel like Norman deserves better than the Hardcore title.
I'm not sure if I'd be supporting him or enabling him.

The WCW Hardcore thing is so weird. I suppose it has something to do with Turner S&P not wanting blood and broken glass everywhere but it's like a comedy version of something that's already pretty silly.

It probably has more to do with WWF having their own comedy hardcore division.

I'm not sure if we were ever supposed to take the WWF's hardcore division seriously.
But once Crash Holly became champion and instituted the 24/7 rule then all doubts are removed.

Surprisingly Norman Smiley actually predates Crash Holly, which is weird because I could have sworn Smiley was Russo trying to re-create Crash.
Maybe it was something Russo had in the tank that The WWF decided to do after he left.

I think this will have the most clean finishes of any Russo booked WCW PPV. So one.

I didn't get home in time to catch this, but I hope you had the original tape and not the WWE network version where a bunch of the themes are dubbed over.

We had the originals.


Congratulations, Vince Russo. You managed to take Chris Benoit and Bret Hart fighting for the WCW World Heavyweight Championship in Toronto, and make it boring.

The finish was cool at least, when they were both scrambling for their finishers and Bret got the upper hand, but it wasn't as good as the Owen Hart Memorial one where Benoit was struggling to drag Bret down for the crossface, then Bret double legs Benoit and passes to half-guard before locking in the sharpshooter.

It seriously had... I think 4 (5?) people run in (Outsiders, Goldberg, Sting/Luger?) at various points and absolutely none of it played into the outcome. They were run ins simply for the sake of run ins

The best one was the Luger run-in during the Hart/Sting semifinal. It kind of ruins a cool finish - Hart elbowing Sting's injured leg to get out of the scorpion deathlock. Should've just had a regular match where Hart targeted the leg and then did the same finish.
