WCW – OCTOBER 10, 2018

Hey! It’s Wednesday! You know what that means! It’s time for this week’s WCW or World Championship! This week I have selected “ the chairman of WCW” La Parka! The year was 1996 when WCW began tapping into the wrestlers from the Mexican promotion known as AAA. The Mexican wrestlers or Luchadores if you will, were used almost exclusively for the cruiserweight division in WCW, which was more of a high flying, fast paced wrestling and a perfect fit for the Lucha Libre style of wrestling. La Parka became a stand out amongst the Luchadores because of his comedic style. La Parka would carry a chair to the ring, earning him the nickname the chairman of WCW , he would also play air guitar and dance before his matches. La Parka was a regular on WCW television with his most memorable moment occurring in a match against Randy “ macho man” Savage. During the match on WCW Monday Nitro, La Parka hit Savage with a “ diamond cutter” finisher for the pin. After the match La Parka unmasked and it was really Diamond Dallas Page under the La Parka mask. Yes, La Parka’s most memorable moment in WCW didn’t even really involve him As late 1998 rolled around La Parka along with many of the other Mexican wrestlers joined Eddie Guerrero’s group the Latino World Order or LWO. the LWO was a play on the successful wrestling faction the New World Order or NWO. The group disbanded after a few months due to Guerrero being sidelined with injuries in early 1999. By the time the calendar turned to 2000, WCW was under new management and the new creative team began having La Parka give interviews in Spanish and then would dub over his voice in English with comedic comments The angle never caught on and before the year was out La Parka would leave the WCW just months before the promotion would fold. What was your favorite La Parka match in WCW?


WCW – OCTOBER 3, 2018

Hey it’s Wednesday! You know what that means! Its time for this week’s WCW or World Championship Wrestling! This week I have selected Horace Hogan. Horace made his debut in the WCW at Spring Stampede 1998 aiding in an attack on Diamond Dallas Page as a member of Raven’s flock. Horace remained as a member in “ the flock” until October of 1998 when Raven disbanded the group. With the demise of the flock Horace found himself joining another wrestling faction the New World Order aka the NWO, the Black and White faction led by his uncle world champion wrestler Hulk Hogan. The night Horace joined the group Hulk Hogan was in the midst of a feud with the Ultimate Warrior. Hulk took a chair to Horace and beat him unmercifully to show that if he would do this to family what would he do the the Warrior. Despite the beating Horace remained in the group and helped his uncle in the feud with the Warrior By early 1999 Horace was teaming with fellow NWO members Scott Norton, Vincent and Bryan Adams in attempts to capture tag team gold. The year was 1999 when the NWO dissolved and Horace Hogan found himself competing for the WCW hardcore championship over the following months By the time 2000 began Horace and Hulk Hogan joined forces again and started feuding with Billy Kidman who was part of the WCW New Blood youth movement led by Eric Bischoff and Vince Russo. As the Kidman feud concluded , Hulk Hogan was having creative differences with Vince Russo the head writer for WCW. In July of 2000 Hulk Hogan left the WCW after a confrontation with Russo and Horace quickly followed suit with his uncle. WCW would cease operations in March of 2001 What was your favorite Horace Hogan match in WCW?
