Would've been fun to do the title switch in a tables match.
Dean Malenko defeated Rey Mysterio on WCW Worldwide around this time for the cruiser title and I THINK Jericho beat Alex Wright for the same title on Saturday Night in '97.Looking at their Cagematch. They defended their titles twice (once on Nitro against Juventud Guerrera and Billy Kidman dressed as a generic luchador and once on Saturday Night against High Voltage) before losing it to Harlem Heat. What surprised me is they lost the titles on Saturday Night. That had to have been the last title change on Saturday Night besides that weird period in the dying days of the show where Janitor Jim Duggan found the TV Title that Scott Hall threw in the trash and promised to defend it.
Was it possibly pre-taped on Tues, because I seem to recall also seeing this live, and as I stated a little earlier, I could only see cable shows at my bros at the time and that wasn't too often. I would have made the effort to see this disaster.I should've remembered that David Arquette won the WCW World Title on a Thunder cause I watched it somewhat recently and it's also the Thunder-est moment that ever Thundered.
DUDE! That Faces of Fear run in mid-late 96 was great, with them murking geeks each week. They would have totally been in the champs had the Outsiders/Steiners stuff not dominated things forever.
Correct, Stacy came out pushing a baby carriage and then revealed that the carriage contained a stack of 8x10s of Stasiak. Apparently she had a Xerox machine in her cunt!Here are two things I forgot about the dying days of WCW until now: a slimmed down Ice Train returning as limo driver MI Smooth and Shawn Stasiak getting a singles push while being paired with Stacey Kiebler. I think they actually blew off the "who is Stacy's baby daddy?" with this.
And before Steele they were using the Missing Link.He would've fit right in with the boom era. I can picture him on SNME copying the waterpark bit from World Class only sending Gene down the waterslide instead of Mercer. But I guess they already had Steele for a lot of that stuff.
