If anyones interested, following in the footsteps of ICP, Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan has a wrestling promotion out now. Resistance Pro Wrestling its called.
It has X-Pac, Ted Hart, Harry Smith, Rhino, RavARN, El Generico, Cheerleader Melissa, BIG VAN VADER and a bunch of other half decent names. Its not really up to much, but its free and it has Vader and X-Pac on it. Going to check it out in full in a bit. Its poorly shot and the presenter is a fat bloke who would talk a glass eye to sleep, but as I say Vader and X-Pac are on it.
Just like on RAW, Vader's pretty great on it, because, as we know, in Wrestling age means absolutely fuck all, and more people seem to be starting to get that. If anything years of experience makes an even better talent. That's why Jerry Lawler is still an elite worker as he proves all the time. Better than anyone but the very best.
I have recently amassed a set of NWA / WCW Supercards, ranging from Starrcade '83 to the final WCW PPV Greed in 2001. This includes all PPVs (I think), and Clash of the Champions. When I get to that time frame, will also probably include the first and last Nitros as well.
And I thought it might be a good idea to start going through these, since I haven't seen the vast majority of them. Since I am doing that, I figured I might as well try to start some discussion on the good, the bad, and the ugly that was WCW with the some of the most knowledgeable wrestling fans I know, and see what comes of it.
I'll probably try to watch around 2 shows a week, and give thoughts on the shows after each one.
First show will probably get watched tomorrow / Friday and will be Starrcade 1983. . .
