WCW – AUGUST 14, 2019
Hey it’s Wednesday! You know what that means. It’s time for this week’s WCW or World Championship Wrestling! This week I have “above average “ Mike Sanders for my WCW. Sanders made his debut in 1998 as a jobber on the WCW Saturday night and Worldwide Wrestling shows. In July of 2000 Sanders became “ above average” Mike Sanders and became a mouth piece for a faction of wrestlers known as the Natural Born Thrillers. The Thrillers consisted of Sean O’Haire, Chuck Palumbo, Mark Jindrak, Shawn Staisak and Reno. When he wasn’t serving as a manager he was competing in the ring . Sanders went on to earn the title of the commissioner of WCW After he defeated “ the cat” Ernest Miller in a match. Sanders’ winning ways continued as he would take the WCW cruiserweight title from Elix Skipper in October of 2000 Holding the cruiserweight title was short lived, Sanders lost the belt to Chavo Guerrero the following month. Sanders wrestled his final WCW match in March of 2001 as the WCW was sold that same month. “ above average “ Mike Sanders barely scratched the surface of his full potential in his a short but successful run in the final months of WCW. What is your favorite memory of Sanders’ time with the WCW ?

Hey! It’s Wednesday! You know what that means! It’s time for this week’s WCW or World Championship Wrestling! This week we remember the life of a wrestling legend, Harley Race. Harley’s wrestling career took him through every major promotion in the United States and all over the world. Harley was associated very heavily with the NWA for most of his career, capturing the NWA world title several times. Harley was in the later years of his career when he officially debuted in WCW at the Great American Bash 1990. Harley was an active wrestler in WCW in 1990-91 before before transitioning to a managerial position for Lex Luger. Harley is most well known in WCW for managing the super heavyweight Big Van Vader to the World title. Harley’s final matches took place in 1993 when he substituted for an injured Vader for a series of matches against Ric Flair. Harley continued to be active in professional wrestling appearing on WWE television and independent shows and conventions right up until his passing on August 1, 2019. What is you favorite wrestling memory of the legendary Harley Race?
WCW – AUGUST 1, 2019
Hey it’s Thursday! You know what that means! It’s time for this week’s WCW or World Championship Wrestling! This week, in honor of “ Shark Week” I have selected a wrestler from 20,000 leagues under the sea! I’m talking about Shark Boy! Sadly Shark Boy didn’t make much of a splash in WCW when he joined the company in 1999, it was his cult following, mostly on the independent scene that caught the attention of WCW and got the aquatic wrestler signed to a very short contract. Shark Boy didn’t engage in any memorable feuds or capture and titles while he was in the company either. He made a few appearances on WCW Saturday Night and WCW Thunder over a period of about 6 months before heading back out into the deep blue sea. Do you have any favorite memories of Shark Boy in WCW ? Or better yet did you even know Shark Boy made a stop in WCW ?
