WCW – MARCH 20, 2019

Hey! It’s Wednesday! You know what that means! It’s time for this week’s WCW or World Championship Wrestling! This week my WCW is one of the less remembered wrestling stables the “ Dudes With Attitudes”! It was the summer of 1990 and the Four Horsemen consisting of Ric Flair, Ole and Arn Anderson and Sid Vicious were dominating the wrestling scene in the WCW. Sting and Lex Luger have been teaming up to battle the Horsemen in tag team and singles matches however the 4 on 2 odds certainly were not in favor of Sting and Luger, they set out to recruit wrestlers who have also been having issues with the Horsemen. This lead to the creation of a stable of wrestlers calling themselves the Dudes With Attitudes! The Dudes consisted of El Gigante, Lex Luger, Paul Orndorff, Rick Steiner, Scott Steiner, the Junkyard Dog and Sting. The Dudes would compete in singles matches and standard tag team matches against members of the 4 Horsemen in the early summer of 1990. At the Great American Bash in July of 1990 the Dudes With Attitudes were prominently featured throughout the pay per view. El Gigante, Paul Orndorff and the Junkyard Dog defeated Sid Vicious ,Ole and Arn Anderson by DQ. The Steiner Brothers defeated the Fabulous Freebirds, Lex Luger got the win over Mean Mark Callous and Sting captured the world title by defeating Ric Flair in the main event. After the Great American Bash the Dudes With Attitudes broke away from being a united stable of wrestlers. Sting and Luger would still occasionally team, but aside from that the Dudes With Attitudes never reformed again. What was your favorite Dudes With Attitudes match?

WCW – MARCH 13, 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 selected the Samoan Savage as my WCW! A member of the famous Samoan dynasty of wrestlers, the Samoan Savage made his World Championship Wrestling debut in 1989. The Samoan Savage joined his brother Fatu and his cousin Samu in the tag team of the Samoan SWAT team, at this time under the management of Oliver Humperdink aka “ the big Kahuna”. Not too long after the Savage’s arrival Samu stepped away from active ring competition the and the Samoan SWAT team. Fatu and the Samoan Savage continued to wrestle and renamed the team “ the new Wild Samoans” . The New Wild Samoans found moderate success competing in the 1989 Starrcade pay per view tag team tournament finishing in third place overall. The Samoan Savage and Fatu continue to team and have the occasional singles match until mid 1990 when the both left the company. What is your favorite Samoan Savage match?

WCW – MARCH 6, 2019

Hey! It’s Wednesday! You know what that means! It’s time for this week’s WCW or World Championship Wrestling! This week my WCW is Sick Boy! Sick Boy made his WCW debut on Monday Nitro in November of 1997 as a member of Raven’s Flock. The Flock was a faction of misfit wrestlers adorn in grunge clothing lead by former ECW champion now WCW wrestler Raven. Within a few months of his debut Sick Boy received a match against U.S. Champion Diamond Dallas Page. Unfortunately Sick Boy could not remedy a win in his quest to capture the U.S. title . As 1998 went on Sick Boy began to feud with Chris Benoit and then Steve McMichael. More often than not the Sick Boy found himself on the losing end of those matches. In September of 1999 Raven disbanded the Flock and Sick Boy dropped the grunge look and attempted to move on without the Flock. It was shortly thereafter Sick Boy would be diagnosed with no future with the company and released from WCW. What was your favorite Sick Boy match?
