I think that Arn Anderson vs Hulk Hogan match is where Hogan tried to put on the figure four, but put it on backwards. I don't know how he accomplished that.

I agree...2012 was when they started to release all match compilation and documentaries on Blu-ray.

2011 there were only select releases like Greatest Superstars of 21s Century and OMG!, but no Nitro.

I like picking up these WCW releases. I've always been a WWE fan ever since I started watching pro wrestling in the 90's and very rarely watched WCW when it was in business so picking up these DVDs and BDs that WWE has released has allowed me to earn respect and appreciation for it in hindsight. I can't wait to pick this one up and see some more.

WCW from 96-98 is easily better than anything the WWE has ever done.

One could make an argument for the attitude era which depending on who you ask can be anywhere from Post-Bret Hart to 2002 (when Stone Cold and Rock both left full-time) or the Rise of Stone Cold to 2002.

However without the nWo there is no DX, without Eric Bischoff (the on-tv character of corrupt company head) there is no Mr. McMahon character. Without cruiserweights, WWE would've never created the Light Heavyweight division.

I'm very bitter of how WCW was sold to McMahon. If you actually read about how it all went down behind the scenes, there's a lot of shady dealings going on. McMahon bought WCW for pennies on the dollar.

WCW did have its moments. wasn't surprised when Vince bought it and within a year it was gone and forgotten - anyone who thought he was going to actually keep it around didn't know Vince too well. how he bought it has always been questionable since Bishoff was all set to buy it and then when they lost the tv shows, he suddenly dropped it and Vince was there to grab it. Even Jericho said if he knew how much it would go for, he would have bought it so why Bishoff didn't buy it just for the video library is very strange. actually sounds like a Vince storyline

it is fun to watch the old WCW stuff. always had a different look than WWF and always Nitro always seemed like a big show compared to the early RAW's from the same time.

While 96 was a bad year for the WWF, in 1997 you had the epic Anti-American Hart Foundation run and the rise of DX...you had Stone Cold reaching boiling point with popularity and 1998 you had WWF reach its manic peak...so I can give you 1996 and maybe, maybe most of 1997, but in no way did WCW do better than the WWF in 1998...no way...

98 I may give you WWF just because of the way the Goldberg winning streak end was handled at Starrcade. Goldberg was must see wrestling TV in 98.

But first half of 96 pre-nWo was still better than what WWF had other than Wrestlemania. Then mid year when Hall and Nash came to Great American Bash was MUST SEE. Then Bash at the Beach... changed wrestling forever. 97 was an awesome year with Sting saving the day every week culminating to Sting vs. Hogan at Starrcade.

Ratings wise, WCW in 96-97 may not be able to touch late 2000's WWF but it was by far more popular amongst wrestling fans. Late 2000's the base of wrestling fans was expanded. But without the nWo-WCW struggle there is no attitude era IMO.

Reports were Vince bought WCW for $4.2 million (2.5 for the name/rights and 1.7 for the tape library), which is an embarrassing amount considering how big WCW once was.

by 98, WCW was starting to fall but they still had a ton of momentum behind them. their main event may have been falling apart but the midcard was still good. had they followed through and had Sting, Goldberg, etc keep fighting the nWo and actually start to win, slowing getting people to jump ship back to WCW until the nWo was back to Nash, Hall and Hogan, WCW would have done really well. 98 was both a good and a bad year, just depends where you look at it. what surprises me is that a lot of the issues they had then are appearing in WWE right now. Orton or Cena rarely lose and when they do, it is just shrugged off. sounds a lot like Hogan back in the day. and i am not hating on either of them but it does show something - when you are on top, you make dumb decisions.

I don't think thats a good comparison...back then top guys like Hogan had creative control over their characters and basically "inmates running the asylum". Now, everyone goes through Vince and his creative staff.

Same deal with Vince Russo, he made the Attitude era great in WWE because he had McMahon as a filter...Russo tried to create an "attitude era" in WCW 2000 but failed because there was no McMahon to filter out all his crap.

For me WCW started going downhill when you had Wolfpack and Black and White... when Sting and Luger joined the nWo it was like WHAT? The last two years was just wasted basically.

nWo couuld never be faces or love hate bad guys. Sting and Luger were the epitome of WCW's good guys and then they joined the more fan favorite version of the nWo and it was just like WHAT.

Jericho was so awesome back in WCW.

Russo has failed everywhere he's gone and had executive control.

His TNA writing was stagnant as well.

i agree wcw was fantastic during that 2 year strech. wcw was directly responsible for the huge boom period during that time for themselves and wwf. when you look at the product wwf was putting out when wcw started the whole nwo thing it was as bad as wrestling had ever been.

the big problem with wwf right now is that there is no one to push them to greatness. wwf is king dog and they dont have to be inovative any more. its kind of sad.

yes vince will always have the 80s and the boom that came with hogan. no one can take that away from him.

I hate the most is wrestling patents.

Vince owns every major wrestling trademark. Its hard for other conpanies to compete without having off the wall gimmick characters.

You cant have another four horsemen anywhere. You cant have anythibg resembling an nwo.

TnA got creative and called the old nwo "The BaNd" and a new Flair group "Fourtune".
