Do it ironically posted:

Thereís also a weird vibe because a lot of wrestling fans are Deep South USA racists and homophobic but wrestling is gay as hell (I love it), like itís two dudes wearing speedo both roided up looking great just grappling each other and looking at the hard cam

It must be really confusing for those fans

And the other 1/3 of fans are African American

Recently, the boss guy legit died from lung failure and his cult of idiots became good guys by default. They asked an alcoholic cowboy with anxiety issues to join their cult and his refusal was treated as the most heartbreaking thing for both sides.

A spooky swamp preacher evolved into the host of a kids TV show with demonic undercurrents and could turn himself into a nigh-invincible monster clown. He challenged Cena to a match at Wrestlemania, but instead of having a wrestling match, he dragged Cena through time and space in what was supposed to be an artistic deconstruction of Cena's career. Then Cena vanished from reality and was never heard from again.

It got campy as gently caress in the mid 90s which lead to the Attitude Era but I don't think they could get that momentum again.

The fact that they have to drag Undertaker out every 2 years to have a match is telling.

They would need another WCW to push them I think, which probably won't happen given their size now.

I realize the Kahn's are actual billionaires but most of their (particularly Tony's) net worth is tied up in other franchises in far more lucrative sports. He can't just start throwing money at guys like Turner would/could do.

Also Kenny Omega and other co-owner have outright said they don't plan on competing directly with WWE, where that was Turner's main goal.

Raw Report: February 22, 1993

Tonight on Raw, Hulk Hogan's all like
https://i.imgur.com/fBVJCTa.gifv

Bam Bam Bigelow beat up some guy who accidentally wandered in off the street.

Interview with Hulk Hogan focused solely on his steroid scandal. Steroids were not mentioned.

Beverly Bros + Shawn Michaels vs Nasty Boys + Tatanka in triple tag team action. We will all, the announcers claim, go to Nastyville.

Crush fought Terry Taylor in a match I skipped.

Sign in the audience says "Hulk Homo." Classy.

Hogan shows up with extra greasy upper arms for another interview. He mentions quickly that he owns a beach house in Venice Beach. Hogan mushmouths his way through the interview and declares "I'm back."

Brutus's mangled face arrives and hams it up. Brutus admits he is now infected with Hulkamania and it's really running wild.

Jimmy Heart wears a non-Euclidian suit.

Hogan pretends to make up a team name, Mega Maniacs, on the spot, and it's a dumb enough name that he actually may really have created it then and there.

Hmm. Undertaker vs Skinner and there's only 2 minutes left in the episode. This does NOT bode well for Skinner.

Nvm, they just ran out of time. Episode's over. Moose out front should have told ya.

Overall, kinda dull tonight!

I remember all the early Raw's kind of sucking, I see that I remembered correctly.

Fun Giant Gonzales fact: he was originally supposed to be the Yeti ("THE YET-AY") in WCW who'd be thawed from a block of ice by the Dungeon of Doom. Which was not the stupidest thing that happened in a year where Hogan & Savage fought a three-tier cage match against the President from the Fifth Element and The Ultimate Solution, who was originally going to be named The Final Solution before one of Turner's Standards & Practices guys picked up that piece of paper and presumably physically threw himself across his desk to get to the telephone. Or where Hogan and the Giant had a monster truck sumo match on top of the arena that resulted in Giant falling to his death before later showing up for the main event with no explanation.

Gonzalez ended up getting sick and going back to Argentina, but since they'd already promoted the character, they wrapped Ron Studd/Reese/Super Giant Ninja in bandages with the idea that they could "unwrap" him later to reveal Gonzales. This is why the Yeti, from the Himalayas, is somehow also a mummy, from Egypt. Who teams up with Giant to give Hogan a group hug.




Gonzales did not, in fact, return to the US to take up this gimmick

The NWO angle ended up causing a lot of problems in WCW but man was it better than most of WCW angles before it.

I started watching the nWo Nitros in order when lockdown started, and boy it's the coolest thing in the world for about six months (plus the undercard features about a dozen hall-of-famers), but then good god it just goes on forever and every single goddamn title match ends with fifteen dudes running down to administer a heavy sack beating on the babyface until all that's really been established is that your world title is meaningless and your babyfaces are morons

Agreed. Nitro was my go to show until they started splitting the nWo up into the factions

Yeah, it could be any of those. I guess they didn't have the schedule control that Turner did.

As for the "spoilers," I just watched an episode of The Monday Night War that talked about it. That's hilarious! I almost never watched WCW so that was new me to me. And in the documentary Vince, of all people, was butthurt because it was a dirty move. I'm assuming WCW was paying to send people to the Raw tapings and then having them report back? It's weird because the WWF always touted Raw as live... did they just inconspicuously not use that term for the taped shows? Since I only watched Raw I didn't know that spoiling was a thing happening at the other company.

I think they always wanted the tv audience to assume everything happened live.

Eclipse12 posted:

Also, is it safe to assume all the early 90s anti-drug PSAs came about because of the steroid scandal? Were they court-ordered? Or just trying to get some good PR?

Anti-drug poo poo was everywhere in the late 80s early 90s, I'm sure they were just joining the crowd.
