SuperBrawl II

February 29, 1992

The MECCA

Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Jim Herd has finally left WCW! He became increasingly frustrated with Dusty Rhodes and approached Turner executive, Jack Petrik, with an ultimatum. He told Jack, “Either Dusty has to go or I have to go!” Herd could tell from Jack’s reaction which it would be, so Herd finally gave his resignation. Herd was then replaced by Kip Frey, who started throwing money around to improve WCW. He instituted a performance bonus for the wrestlers and even signed a new commentator, whom you may recognize. (I’ll speak more about him in the review.) However, Kip would only be a temporary leader for WCW. There is someone else on the horizon, but we will get to him soon enough.

Kip’s performance bonuses might have inspired some wrestlers to step up their game, but one man had already checked out mentally. As I said in my last WCW review, Lex Luger had already agreed to join Vince McMahon’s WBF. Lex fulfilled all his contractually obligated dates and was almost non-existent on WCW TV in the build for this PPV. To make matters worse, he had already begun bulking up for the bodybuilding career, which ruined his conditioning and embarrassed WCW. They were trying to shy away from the same steroid scandal that was plaguing the WWF. You can tell on this show that WCW was not happy with Lex. They needed to get the title off of him, so they chose Sting to be the man. It seems it’s time to give the Sting era another try. Hopefully, this run will be better than the last one.

The show opens with some painfully 90s graphics. A narrator lists off all of the major matches while the wrestlers pose in front of a green screen and make silly faces. Sting looks particularly constipated, but he could also be pissed off about the Luger situation.

Tony Schiavone and Eric Bischoff then welcome everyone to the show, but they’re not the commentators for the night. They will simply offer insight and predictions between matches. They talk about the main event and Bischoff says Sting has been spreading himself thin while Luger has been in seclusion. That’s his nice way of saying Lex has been sitting at home doing nothing. They also talk about the Tag Team Title Match and Eric says the Steiners will eat Eaton & Anderson’s lunch. (That’s mean. Are they going to steal their lunch money too?) Then, they talk about the U.S. Title Match and Paul E. being barred from ringside before they go to Missy Hyatt backstage. She claims she will be the most exciting part of the show. (I certainly hope that’s not the case!) She also says she’s going to get interviews with Lex Luger and Ricky Steamboat. Neither of those ends up being true. Then, they go back to Tony and Eric, who talk about Rhodes & Windham taking on Zbyszko & Austin. Eric calls it a brawl for all. (I thought that happened in 1998!)

Next, they go to Jim Ross in the ring. He introduces WCW’s newest broadcaster—

Jesse Ventura! He rides down the ramp on a motorcycle and poses for the crowd while they show a couple of signs that say, “Jesse for President.” (Don’t give him any ideas!) He joins Ross in the ring and says that when you’re in Milwaukee, you ride a Harley Davidson. He also says that WCW is where it’s happening. (By it, he means his fat new contract.) Then, he calls Milwaukee, “Crusher Country,” before Ross asks him for his prediction about the main event. Jesse dances around the question, but he does accuse Luger of going into hiding. Jesse then tells Ross that he should wear a cowboy hat because he would look like J.R. Ewing. (Has Jesse looked into the future!?)

Light Heavyweight Title Match: Flyin’ Brian vs. Jushin Thunder Liger (c)

Brian Pillman lost the Light Heavyweight Title to Liger on Christmas, so the rematch was set for this PPV. Both men are technically still babyfaces, but Brian started showing a bit of an edge in his promos. He might be angry about his crappy Christmas present, but this could also be foreshadowing his eventual heel turn.

The two men trade holds and both attempt a dropkick at the same time before taking it to the mat again. While they go through some chain wrestling, Jesse compares Liger’s mask to the Predator. (I guess he had to plug his movies at some point.) Liger then hits a moonsault out of the corner and fakes out Pillman on a dive before attempting a surfboard stretch a couple of times. Pillman tries to fight back, but Liger works over his leg, which Ross says will retard Brian’s quickness. (Whoa, Jim! Easy now!) The leg work continues, including a Figure Four, until Brian hits an enziguri and flying head scissors, but Liger back drops Brian out of the ring. It’s thankfully not a DQ because Liger follows up with a somersault plancha. Then, they block each other’s suplex attempts and Pillman hits a springboard clothesline. They fight to the floor again and Pillman hits a cross body over the ropes, but he crashes into the guardrail on an axehandle attempt. Once they’re back in the ring, they take turns dropkicking each other out of the air on high-flying moves before both attempting a spinning wheel kick. They also trade off 2 counts on a powerslam, bridging German suplex, and flying cross body. Liger answers with a powerbomb, but Pillman turns a second attempt into a DDT. Unfortunately, they collide when both men attempt a jumping headbutt. Pillman recovers and goes to the top, but Liger catches him with a superplex. He tries to follow it up with a flying headbutt, but Liger misses and Brian rolls him up in a prawn hold for the win.

This was a great opener! I like that they slowly built to a crescendo instead of instantly going to the big moves. They saved the big spots for later and told a good story. The crowd ate it up because they were doing moves that WCW fans hadn’t seen. They popped big for Brian’s win.

Winner: Flyin’ Brian (New Champion) (17:00)

Tony and Eric talk about the match before introducing Missy Hyatt, who is with The Taylor Made Man, Terry Taylor. (I’ll explain in a moment.) Taylor is wearing his best Million Dollar Man cosplay, which Missy calls dapper. She talks about his upcoming match with Marcus Alexander Bagwell and asks him what’s going on with that. Taylor says he asked Bagwell to be his protege and offered to teach him how to hang out with beautiful women, like Missy. He also says that Bagwell would have made more money than ever, but he didn’t take the offer. Then, Taylor says he was going to teach Bagwell how to be a winner, but now he will teach him how to be a loser. (I’ve seen Taylor’s Red Rooster run. I’m certain he knows all about that.)

Marcus Alexander Bagwell vs. The Taylor Made Man

Terry Taylor is no longer part of the York Foundation. Now, he has a new gimmick. He’s the Taylor Made Man, which is a cheap knock-off of Ted DiBiase’s Million Dollar Man character. He even wears a tear-away suit that looks remarkably like DiBiase’s. I wouldn’t be shocked if you told me he stole it from Ted’s wardrobe.

Before the match, Cappetta introduces the winner of the SuperBrawl II ring announcer contest, Barry Abrams. I’ll go easy on the poor kid, but I do have to point out his outfit. They start with a closeup shot of him and it looks like he’s wearing a tuxedo. However, they pan back to show—

he’s wearing basketball shorts. You know they were ribbing him by showing this on camera. I would love to hear from Barry nowadays to see how he feels about this appearance. I get the feeling his friends had a good laugh at his expense.

Taylor tries to take Bagwell to the mat early, but Marcus keeps getting the better of him. Terry throws him to the ramp, but Bagwell hits both variations of the atomic drop and sends him back inside before hitting a flying cross body. Bagwell then frustrates Taylor with some more mat wrestling and eventually gets him in a sleeper, but Terry sends him outside. He rams Marcus into the guardrail and takes control of the match with a gut-wrench powerbomb and an avalanche splash in the corner, but Bagwell almost fights back with a sunset flip. Taylor responds by hitting Bagwell with a neck whip. However, they collide awkwardly and Bagwell surprises Taylor with an O’Connor roll for the win.

This was a basic and sometimes sloppy match. Taylor was crisp, as usual, but Bagwell is still green. His awkwardness brought the match down a bit. I get that they’re trying to give Bagwell some credit with a victory over a veteran wrestler, but the crowd didn’t seem to care.

Winner: Marcus Bagwell (7:38)

After the match, Taylor immediately attacks Bagwell with the Taylor Made Forearm and a DDT. I guess he has to get back his heat. They were trying to build sympathy for Bagwell, but a good portion of the crowd cheered the act. That’s not a good sign for Bagwell. Maybe he needs to become more buff.

Next, Missy is outside Lex Luger’s dressing room. She says that no one has seen Luger training for over a month. Then, she spots Harley Race and asks him if Luger is prepared. Race says Luger is in the greatest shape of his life and he’s going to walk into the match the champion. He also says that Luger will still be the champion tomorrow—because he’s the champion. (Well said, Harley. Well said.) You can tell Race was rushing through the promo. It feels like he’s ready to move on to someone else.

Ron Simmons vs. Cactus Jack

Both of these men are heading for bigger things later this year, so I’m not sure why they’re pairing them against each other. My only guess is that it will be a big win for Ron and Cactus is viewed as someone that wouldn’t be hurt by a loss. Plus, Cactus is known for making guys look like a million bucks. On a side note, Cactus is still using the Funeral March as his theme music, which is odd since the Undertaker uses a variation of it in the WWF. They’re kind of foreshadowing Mick’s future. Also, the Junkyard Dog is shown in the crowd during this match. I wonder if that will be significant.

The two men brawl to start and Cactus attempts a Cactus Clothesline, but Ron moves and Cactus is caught in a hangman spot. (Thankfully, he doesn’t lose an ear. We’re still a couple of years away from that.) Jack escapes and stumbles into the guardrail, so Ron rams him into it. They fight back and forth in the ring again and Cactus hits a double-arm DDT, but it’s apparently not his finisher yet because he only gets a 2 count. Jack follows it up by dumping Ron outside and hitting an elbow drop off the turnbuckles. He gives the camera the dreaded double bang banger before sending Ron back inside and wearing him down for a while. Ron fights back until he misses a charge and lands on the ramp. However, when Cactus follows him, Ron gives him a nasty looking spinebuster. They fight back into the ring and Jack manages to hit a bulldog, but Ron catches him in a powerslam when Jack dives off the ropes. It’s enough to give Simmons the win.

The match was short, but there was enough hard-hitting action to keep it interesting. Jack took his usual nasty bumps, so both men looked strong. The match accomplished exactly what it needed to do, but I think it would have benefited from being a bit longer.

Winner: Ron Simmons (6:34)

Cactus jumps Simmons after the match and Abdullah the Butcher makes his way to the ring. Ross and Jesse wonder which man Abby will attack, but their question is answered when he hits Simmons with his staff. The Junkyard Dog has enough and hops the guardrail. He has to fight off security before he enters the ring and saves Simmons from the beating. This gets a great reaction from the crowd. Tony and Eric are glad to see JYD, but they have no idea what to make of Cactus and Abby.

Van Hammer & Z-Man vs. Richard Morton & Vinnie Vegas

Kevin Nash has a new gimmick. Oz is no more, which I’m sure made him and WCW happy. Now, he’s a Vegas high-roller named Vinnie Vegas. This character would allow him to show a lot more personality and even some humor. It would also eventually get him noticed by a certain wrestler in the WWF, but we will get to that in due time. Now, I’m sure you’re wondering what the story is behind this random match. It’s basically an excuse to get a few guys on the PPV for a payday. There’s no story behind it. In fact, it was originally supposed to be Hammer & Johnny B. Badd versus Vegas & Mr. Hughes. Badd was having a contract dispute and Hughes was in the doghouse, so they were replaced. Before the match starts, Jesse Ventura makes fun of Vegas’ suit and hair, which oddly seems to annoy Jim Ross. Ventura also makes the statement that there’s no money in bodybuilding, which is a thinly veiled shot at Luger. It won’t be the last one tonight.

Hammer gets the advantage on both Morton and Vegas early until Vinnie pokes his eyes. Then, Vegas foolishly tries to leapfrog Hammer and they collide awkwardly. (What was Nash thinking? They’re both way too tall for that spot!) Vegas then reverses a 10-punch attempt and both men thankfully tag their partners. Morton and Z-Man try to save this match when Zenk clotheslines Richard over the ropes and hits a flying cross body. Unfortunately, Vegas tags in and demands Hammer. Vinnie hits a back suplex and a short-arm clothesline. Later, he also hits a facebuster and a gut-wrench suplex. (Don’t tell Jim Cornette about this. He might have to update Nash’s move list.) Vegas and Morton then maintain control of Hammer through double teaming and ref distractions. Vinnie continues with a shoulder tackle and an awkward suplex. (He really needs to stop trying moves like that on a guy as tall as Hammer.) Eventually, Vegas and Hammer collide and tag their partners. Z-Man back drops Morton and throws a dropkick at Vegas. He misses, but Nash bumps off the apron anyway before Zenk hits a powerslam on Morton. Ricky responds with a thumb to the eye and charges Zenk in the corner, but Z-Man catches him with a sunset flip for the win.

This was better than I was expecting, but that’s not saying much. Nash’s awkwardness kept this from being a good match. He’s still quite green and doesn’t realize he shouldn’t be doing certain moves at his size. However, the awkwardness was kind of amusing and Zenk and Morton did well enough to keep the match from being a disaster.

Winners: Hammer & Z-Man (12:01)

Tony and Eric talk about the next match and recap Zbyszko & Anderson attacking Barry Windham at Halloween Havoc. They show the clip of them closing Barry’s hand in the car door and say that Windham had surgery. They also talk about how Zbyszko has been calling himself the Cruncher since the attack. (He should have gotten an endorsement deal with Snickers or at least Nestle Crunch.) Eric asks if Windham & Rhodes are looking for revenge by taking the match or by breaking bones.

Barry Windham & Dustin Rhodes vs. Stunning Steve Austin & Larry Zbyszko (w/ Madusa)

Barry Windham finally returned from his injury and continued his pairing with Dustin Rhodes, so it made perfect sense to book this match. It combines two different feuds for the Dangerous Alliance, as well as continuing the Rhodes/Windham storyline. During the introductions, Jesse asks Ross if he thinks Madusa is looking good, but Ross kind of rudely blows off Jesse’s question. You can tell that Ross is already getting tired of Ventura and it’s only their first night together.

All four men brawl to start and soon Barry demands that he face Zbyszko. They go after Larry’s hand and arm for revenge, which is great psychology. Windham eventually hits Larry with a gut-wrench suplex and attempts a piledriver, but Austin clotheslines him. Then, Larry and Austin use a ref distraction to attack Windham on the outside. They ram him into the guardrail and crotch him on it before sending him inside the ring. Austin and Zbyszko wear down Barry with a swinging neckbreaker, back suplex, and a sleeper hold, but Windham hits a jawbreaker. Then, both men collide and Barry tags Rhodes, who cleans house. He hits an inverted atomic drop, dropkick, elbow drop, and a lariat, but Larry breaks up the pin. Everyone brawls again, so Austin uses the opening to turn Rhodes inside-out with a clothesline and then Larry hits another swinging neckbreaker. Larry and Rhodes then fight back and forth until Madusa distracts Dustin with a slap. He chases her, so Austin jumps him and the Dangerous Alliance wear down Rhodes for a while. This continues until Dustin hits Austin with a rough-looking Stun Gun and tags Windham. Eventually, Windham attempts a superplex, but Larry blocks it. However, Rhodes shoves Larry off the top rope and Windham hits a flying lariat for the win.

This was a solid tag match, but it dragged a bit in the middle. Zbyszko was quite entertaining throughout, so they kept the crowd invested, but it was a bit slow for my liking. The finish was nice, but the heat segments for the Alliance team went on too long.

Winners: Rhodes & Windham (18:23)

They go back to Tony and Eric, who is wearing a University of Michigan jacket. Bischoff claims he will be impartial about the next match, but he starts singing the praises of the Steiner Brothers. Tony makes sure to point out they’ve never faced Anderson & Eaton.

Then, Missy is outside Ricky Steamboat’s dressing room. She tries to get an interview, but she meets a freakin’ ninja waiting outside the door! She acts like this is a perfectly normal occurrence and asks if she can speak to Steamboat. The ninja opens the door the check on him and they find Steamboat doing some sort of candle ritual. The ninja quickly closes the door and motions for Missy to leave, while Missy says, “He’s meditating, or something!” Missy leaves, but she spots Madusa in the hallway and tries to talk to her. Madusa ignores her and approaches the ninja. She flirts with him and tries to convince him to let her see Steamboat, but the ninja replies, “No Steamboat! You, go!” Madusa becomes angry and slaps the ninja, so he chases her down the hallway while she screams. (Well, that’s not something you see every day. Since when does Steamboat employ ninjas!?)

World Tag Team Title Match: Arn Anderson & Beautiful Bobby Eaton (c) (w/ Madusa) vs. The Steiner Brothers

Arn & Bobby come to the ring wearing the new WCW Tag Title belts. They finally got new ones made after continuing to use the old NWA belts for a while. These are the classic belts that WCW would use until 1998. Paul E. accompanies them to the ring, but Cappetta announces that Dangerously has been banned from ringside. He throws a fit, but the officials make him leave and Madusa takes his place. Also, throughout this match, Ventura continually questions the Steiners’ college degrees, which seems to genuinely annoy Jim Ross. He’s really starting to hate working with Jesse.

Eaton and Scott start the match and Scott throws him around for a bit. Bobby manages to hit a swinging neckbreaker and goes for a flying axehandle, but Scott catches him and hits an overhead belly-to-belly suplex. Bobby finally tags out and Arn enters the match to taunt Rick into joining him. Rick quickly gains the advantage, so Arn and Bobby bail outside to regroup. The Steiners keep sending them out of the ring and they even fight to the ramp, where Scott hits a tilt-a-whirl slam. He then locks Eaton in an early version of the Steiner Recliner before tagging Rick. The Steiners follow up with an elevated version of the Hart Attack before ramming Arn and Bobby into each other. Finally, Arn and Bobby take control after Eaton turns a flying axehandle by Rick into an inverted atomic drop. They wear down Rick with holds until all four men brawl. The Steiners hit stereo-suplexes, but the ref makes the illegal men leave the ring. However, Arn and Bobby retake control with a flying knee-drop and a DDT on Scott. They wear him down and hit a Rocket Launcher on the ramp before ramming Scott into the guardrail. Scott finally manages to reverse Arn into Eaton’s knee and tags Rick, who cleans house with some Steinerlines. Then, Arn and Bobby fight back and attempt a Doomsday Device, but Rick catches Eaton in a powerslam. He follows it up with a flying bulldog on Arn, but Anderson gets a hold of some powder and throws it in Rick’s eyes. A blinded Rick inadvertently suplexes the ref, so another one arrives just in time for Scott to hit a Frankensteiner for the 3 count. HOWEVER, Nick Patrick comes to the ring and announces that the Steiners have been disqualified for attacking the ref!

This was a pretty good and chaotic tag team match until that Dusty Finish. This is the downside of having Dusty Rhodes booking again. I hoped we had seen the last of this sort of thing. I’m all in favor of this feud continuing, but I don’t want to see Dusty Finishes.

Winners: Anderson & Eaton (by DQ) (20:06)

Next, they show a commercial for WrestleWar ‘92. It’s short and simply announces that they will be in Jacksonville, Florida and there will be a War Games Match.

Then, they show a replay of the end of the last match and Jesse agrees with the ref’s decision, which draws boos from the crowd. Next, they go to Missy, who sees Steamboat leaving his dressing room. Ricky ignores her, but the ninja keeps her at bay with some kung-fu poses. They also go back to Tony and Eric, who talk about Dangerously being banned from ringside for the next match. Eric says that favors Steamboat and Tony calls him the greatest athlete in WCW, but he also calls Rude an impact player. (I’m pretty sure Rude is neither Lance Storm nor Justin Credible.)

U.S. Title Match: Ravishing Rick Rude (c) vs. Ricky the Dragon Steamboat (w/ The Ninja)

Since Sting is now involved in the World Title picture, Steamboat began feuding with Rude for the U.S. Title. The Dangerous Alliance attacked Steamboat after a tag match at a recent Clash of the Champions, so this match was booked. Before the match, Rude attempts to do his usual spiel, but the crowd heat is so loud that he can barely speak. He finally manages to tell the fat, out of shape, Milwaukee meat-heads and cable watching couch potatoes to keep the noise down while he shows them a real man. Steamboat then makes his way to the ring with the ninja in tow. Ventura calls Frey a dictator for allowing the ninja but banning Dangerously.

Steamboat opens with some arm drags before going after Rude’s arm. Rude tries to fire back with forearms, but Steamboat keeps going back to the arm. Rude fights back again until Steamboat hits a cross body and attacks the arm again. Finally, Rude fights back and tries to take Steamboat over the ropes with a cross body, but they don’t make it. He stomps Ricky to the floor instead and rams him into the guardrail before suplexing Steamboat back into the ring. Rude even hits him with a clothesline, but he sells the arm before wearing Steamboat down with holds. Soon, Rude takes a break to pose, but he even remembers to sell the arm during that, which is a nice touch. Then, Rude focuses his attack on Ricky’s neck with a swinging neckbreaker and a piledriver. Eventually, Ricky responds with a shinbreaker and locks Rude in a Figure Four, but Rude makes it to the ropes. The two men fight back and forth and trade sleeper holds until Rude hits a jawbreaker. He then goes to the top, but Steamboat crotches him and hits a superplex. Ricky continues the attack and hits a flying chop off the top rope. However, when he attempts another one, the ninja attacks him—with a cell phone!? The ref was distracted and didn’t see it, so Rude covers Steamboat for the win.

This match was kind of slow, but it had some great psychology and selling. I know it won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but I liked the match for its technical work. I’m even okay with the finish because it continues this feud and they go on to have even better matches.

Winner: Rick Rude (20:02)

Tony and Eric talk about the match and Tony calls it a heartbreaking loss. Bischoff uses a metaphor about a snake being most deadly when you think it’s dead. He says that Paul E. just proved that, but Tony says they don’t know that the ninja was actually Dangerously.

Missy is backstage and she says she doesn’t know what happened with the ninja. She thinks he went crazy, or something. She attempts to get an interview with Rude, but when she opens the door to his dressing room, she spots Paul E. in the ninja outfit without his mask. She screams, so the Dangerous Alliance shoo her out of the room and slam the door closed. Missy then cries, “That was Paul E. Dangerously and he was in a ninja costume!”

Next, Ross and Ventura discuss the main event. Ross says that Luger has been inactive for a month and he asks Jesse how that will affect him. Jesse replies that the only way you can work on endurance is to get in the ring, so it will affect him. (They’re already making excuses for Luger’s poor conditioning. You can tell everyone is sick of Luger.)

WCW Title Match: Sting vs. Lex Luger (c) (w/ Harley Race)

Sting emerges from an elevated platform with smoke and fireworks, but his music stops playing before he makes it to the ring. It was almost a great entrance until the sound guy ruined it. Then, Luger makes his entrance while Ross and Ventura talk about how Luger has bulked up before the match. (They are dragging Luger on commentary and it’s becoming amusing. They are verbally pushing him out the door.) Before the match starts, Luger and Sting have a conversation in the ring. It’s times like this that I wish I could read lips.

They shove each other and grapple into the corner. Luger misses a clothesline and Sting hits the Stinger Splash, but Lex immediately answers with a lariat. He then hits a powerslam and signals for the Torture Rack. Sting flips out of the attempt and hits a German suplex before attempting his own Rack! Luger escapes, but he ducks and Sting hits a DDT, so Luger bails outside to regroup. They end up fighting on the floor and then back inside, where Sting attempts a Scorpion Deathlock, but Luger reaches the ropes. Then, Luger thumbs Sting in the eye and starts a lengthy beatdown. He’s slow because he’s already winded, so it’s mostly forearms and lots of waiting around. He poses to try and distract everyone from the fact that he’s sucking wind before press slamming Sting. He then hits a sloppy piledriver, but he only gets a 2 count. Finally, Sting fights back and returns the favor for all of Lex’s cheap shots. He even rakes the back a couple of times. However, Sting flies out of the ring on a missed clothesline and Race attempts to piledrive him while the ref is distracted. Sting back drops Harley and climbs to the top rope before hitting a flying cross body for the win.

Luger’s poor conditioning dragged this match to a crawl. Sting’s offense was exciting, but it wasn’t enough to save this match from Lex. It’s unfortunate this match wasn’t good, but it got the job done. The title is off Luger, so he can go be a bodybuilder now. I can certainly see why Bischoff was reluctant to bring back Lex in ‘95.

Winner: Sting (New Champion) (13:02)

Luger disappears almost immediately after the match ends and Sting poses in the ring with the belt. Ross and Ventura congratulate him and talk about all the men Sting will face now that he’s champion. Ventura jokes that Sting might have to face Paul E. after his interference earlier, but Ross doesn’t seem that amused by the joke. He simply shakes his head and thanks everyone before saying goodnight.

The Good:

– Pillman/Liger was amazing.

– Almost every match ranged from decent to great.

– Some of the backstage segments were amusing.

– It’s nice to see Sting back on top.

The Bad:

– The return of the Dusty Finish.

– Nash’s awkward wrestling.

– Lex Luger’s poor conditioning and attitude.

Performer of the Night:

I will call it a tie between Pillman and Liger. They were both amazing in their match.

Final Thoughts:

This was a very solid PPV. There was nothing on it that was terrible and there were a couple of matches that were great. It’s nice to see WCW return to form after a shaky 1991. Things will only get better as the year progresses because 1992 is a surprising year in the middle of a low period for WCW. It helps that Jim Herd is gone.
