I'm pretty sure Savage didn't make another appearance in WCW after the match with Rodman in Road Wild '99 but was under contract. He made that quick cameo on Thunder during the Millionaire's Club/New Blood feud but that was it.

According to the description of the video I posted, he worked a random house show against Sid Vicious in 2000.

Why didn't WCW use him during that hiatus anyway?

1999 he didn't like the booking, and wasn't under contract. 2000 he wasn't under contract.

Looking at Cawthon's site, Savage made one more appearance on WCW TV in '99 after that. He returned the night after Halloween Havoc '99 and cut a worked shoot on Vince Russo and talked about how The Powers That Be wouldn't hunt him down like they did to Ric Flair and Hulk Hogan. He also mentioned he was looking to pass the torch to the next Macho Man. Then he never appeared again because lolVinceRusso.

You're off to a good start this year, friend with this monumental upload and getting retweeted by Scotty Riggs!


Also watching said Scotty Riggs Vs Gangrel match that you posted/Riggs RT'd and I was dying at the commentary at the beginning due to A. how loaded Heenan is calling these D show matches and B. Uncomfortably laughing at how much Tony Schiavone and Bobby Heenan's legit disdain for each other in the commentary for these shows.

I remember that. Honky had announced he was unveiling a new protege. A lot of the online speculation was that it was going to be Disco Inferno (obviously would have been jumping from WCW). Instead we got Rockabilly.

I first saw that like 15 years ago after I stole a VHS tape from an dealer at a indy show.  I recall being mad it wasn't the Original TM, before I understood how Japan and the NWA worked.

Were Duggan and Super Crazy team for like a month or did I just imagine that?

I don't remember the Highlanders turning heel either. I assume they were gone soon after.

Duggan and Crazy were a team for a bit on Raw, trying to get the catchphrase of "HO!" Si!" over.

I wanna say the Highlanders turned heel on Londrick (as they're the only babyface team from that period I can remember) but I could be wrong.

I thought Duggan and Super Crazy were a team for a little while. But then I just remembered that they were in the Tag Team Gauntlet at New Year's Revolution '07...and the match I just posted was from the day after the last PPV of '07 so they must have been a team (off and on) for a year!

Crazy/Duggan were a recurring team for a surprisingly long team.  Mostly on Heat but they were together maybe like a year and a half.

BorneAgain is right.  Highlanders turned heel on London/Kendrick due to "never getting opportunities".  Feuded with those guys on Heat, really stayed on the B shows because one got injured, the other one had the "Impact Incident" shortly after and they were sparingly used before being Future Endeavored.

re: Undertaker/Hakushi(Shinzaki), what was the deal with Shinzaki acting like he was "dead" for half the match? Was that part of his gimmick at the time in Japan?

Also, the Luger/Vader teamup is something I had never heard about at all before. I didn't realize Vader played a face really at any time in his WCW run, other than turning on the Dungeon of Doom shortly before he was fired.

One Man Gang Vs JYD is a match that's happened many times before. But check out the commentary team for this one---Jake "The Snake" Roberts and Don Muraco, who both sound about as soused as you'd expect for them. I feel like these two guys calling a match was the result of a lost bet.

The sheer number of grey boxes from broken links in this thread makes me a sad panda.  But we need content from something, dammit.  I've been scouring the darkest corners of Youtube recently, and found a few bizarre gems:


Genichiro Tenryu is squashing the Brooklyn Brawler.  Your argument is invalid. 





Meanwhile, a wrestler-exchange program sends the Yonkers Brawler to All Japan. 





The Giants collide.  Andre versus Baba, motherfucker!  Also: Stan Hansen talks! 





And while we're talking about 1.Stan Hansen, and 2.ECW mainstays inexplicably working for AJPW: here's a super-young Rob Van Dam in Japan.  Point and laugh as he does some Waltman-esque worked karate kicks that Toshiaki Kawada utterly refuses to sell. 





Back to 'merica, here's Steven William Regal teaching young Bryan Danielson Daniel Bryan everything he will ever know. 





Ric Flair.  Bruiser Brody.  One hour (or close enough).  What do you need, a road map? 





Two guys sharing the same thought: "What the fuck is this guy in the ring with me?"  NASH-IMOTO HAPPENS, BABY.





Didya know Lou Thesz had his last match in the nineties?  No, I said in THE nineties, not in HIS nineties (though he doesn't look too far off). 





You can always count on Onita to book a bizarre list of dudes who make you go "Whoa, THAT guy did exploding barbed-wire?!"  Yes, these respected old veterans of mainstream puroresu apparently decided that this was a good day to get blown the hell up. 





One more random mismatch, from New Japan.  Muta, check.  Chono, check.  Liger, why not.  Sabu, sure... wait, what, SABU?





I notice that most of these matches are from Japan.  That's because, well, fuck most wrestling which isn't Japanese.  But anyway, hardcore fans know that the legendary tag-team rivalry of stalwart babyface Mitsuharu Misawa and his beyond-fiery partner Kenta Kobashi had the best matches ever against the "Holy Demon Army" team of the ridiculously stiff Toshiaki Kawada and his big surly stoic backup Akira Taue.  So naturally that leads to... wait, what the fuck, at one point they switched partners?  Uh.  Okay.  Still had a hell of a match.
