Topics I've Started

WCW 2000

24 May 2018 - 09:36 AM

Since I finally have been able to keep a podcast going regularly (check out Who Booked This? on the PWO Podcast Network), I think it's time to get back into some armchair booking.

 

What better place to start then WCW in 2000?

 

Souled Out 2000 is a few days away and it's now come out that WCW World Champion Bret Hart is injured and may have to retire, and WCW United States Champion Jeff Jarrett is injured and can not compete. The main event and semi-main event are now cancelled.

 

Head booker, Vince Russo's plan to fix this is to give the title to Tank Abbott. He is fired on the spot.

 

This is when Steven Graham comes in to take over the head booking position, while Kevin Sullivan will be his assistant. Rumours are talents like Chris Benoit and Shane Douglas are unhappy with this decision and may walk out after the ppv.

 

January 16, 2000

 

Live from the Firstar Center in Cincinnati, Ohio on PPV!

 

Souled Out

 

The original line up was: 

 

WCW World Champion Bret Hart vs Sid Vicious

 

WCW US Champion Jeff Jarrett vs Chris Benoit (Triple Threat Theater Series)

 

Terry Funk vs Kevin Nash (Hardcore Match, winner becomes Commissioner of WCW)

 

Buff Bagwell vs Diamond Dallas Page (Last Man Standing)

 

WCW Tag Team Champions David Flair & Crowbar vs Vampiro and a Dream Tag Partner

 

Big Vito & Johnny the Bull w/ Disco Inferno vs The Harris Brothers

 

WCW Cruiserweight Champion Madusa vs Oklahoma

 

WCW Hardcore Champion Brian Knobbs vs Fit Finlay vs Norman Smiley vs Meng

 

Booker T w/ Midnight vs Stevie Ray

 

Tank Abbott vs Jerry Flynn

 

This card will obviously change come Sunday's Souled Out as the new booker is now in place, but how. Will Benoit and company walk? How will they handle the top two matches?


Following the Business vs Following the Product?

19 May 2018 - 09:10 AM

This board may be an exception, where we really value footage and dissect, but there seem's to be a lot of people who care more about the business end of things.

 

I've completely given up on back stage shenanigans, stock prices, tv ratings, all of that. Do I like the product or not, determines what I watch.

 

Has there been a shift towards more business caring than product caring?

 

Has Metlzer influenced this change?

 

Am I out to lunch thinking this is happening at all?


Who Booked This? The Podcast Thread

JR Goldberg and myself have started a new show. First episode is now up, and a new one will be up every Monday (we have three more recorded and are trying to stay way ahead).

 

We are taking look at the bizarre and shitty of wrestling and we start off with the very first Punjabi Prison Match between Big Show and The Undertaker from the 2006 Great American Bash. Enjoy on the PWO Podcast Network!
