Most everyone loved Slamboree 1997. The advent of the NWO had a lot to do with that, but so did the return of Ric Flair after being off for eight months with shoulder problems.

    Slamboree was originally an event that began in 1993 and was subtitled: "A Legends Reunion." The event was the brainchild of Dusty Rhodes, but in 1996 it looked nothing like the original one. The 1996 version featured Sting versus the Giant for the WCW World Title, Dean Malenko against Brad Armstrong for the WCW Cruiserweight Title and Konnan against Jushin "Thunder" Liger for the United State Title. It also featured a tag team "Lethal Lottery" with some sort of Battlebowl-Lord of the Ring-Earn a world title shot-nonsense.  Hey, it was WCW, right? And it was pre-NWO, so there was plenty of nonsense, right?

    This is arguably the most famous "Raw is War" ever. Not because it was the highest rated ever, but because it featured DX on the attack against WCW! The two sides, the two shows, were literally 24 miles apart with the WWF(E) at the Hampton Coliseum and WCW at the Norfolk Scope. So DX, led by Triple H, Billy Gunn, X-Pac, Road Dogg and Chyna recorded vignettes outside of the Scope, trying to get into the building where Nitro was being held. But the show was also famous for furthering the storylines between Stone Cold Steve Austin and Vince McMahon and between The Undertaker and Kane. It is an unforgettable and entertaining episode of Raw and another night where Vince McMahon was flexing his muscle in the ratings.

    It's the midst of the Jim Herd era in WCW and this seven match card had some good moments and some bad ones as well. The good featured a Ric Flair vs Lex Luger NWA World Title matchup that was basically a substitute match due to Sting's knee injury. Plus the Rock and Roll Express and the Midnight Express with Jim Cornette put on yet another tag team classic. Also featured are the Road Warriors, the Steiners, Doom, Kevin Sullivan, Buzz Sawyer, Cactus Jack, Norman, the Dynamic Dudes, Brian Pillman, the Z-Man, the Freebirds, Teddy Long and a pre-Undertaker wrestler named Mark Callous.

    The WCW Annual February event was a few months before the advent of the NWO. Packed with stars and some very bad matches, the pay per view event was not short on major talent. Two cage matches highlighted the event with Hulk Hogan meeting the Giant and Ric Flair going up against the Macho Man Randy Savage. The event also featured, Sting, Lex Luger, the Road Warriors, Konnan, the Nasty Boys, Diamond Dallas Page, Harlem Heat, Johnny B. Badd and more, but what it will most be remembered for is the "I Respect You" strap match between Brian Pillman and Kevin Sullivan.

    We celebrate five (count 'em, five!) years of WHW with a look at the 2017 Royal Rumble. Back in January of 2017, Conrad Thompson brought Tony Schiavone's attention back to wrestling when this podcast began, and for Schiavone, this event--the 2017 Rumble--was the first wrestling program he watched since his departure from wrestling in 2001. So, this time we will watch it together. We will watch the WWE Championship match between John Cena and AJ Styles and then the 30 man Royal Rumble. It's a great look back, if for nothing else than to see how many athletes are still in the WWE or have moved on. Happy 5th to WHW and all of you who have been with us during this run.

    This TBS special, which aired on January 21, 1992, pulled in the lowest ratings numbers of any of the "Clashes," but was, critically, one of the best ones that aired on TBS between March of 1988 and August of 1997. From the opening bout, featuring the Steiner Brothers against Vader and Mr. Hughes, to the final match with Sting and Ricky Steamboat meeting Rick Rude and Steve Austin, this program was LOADED.

    We take you back to the TBS Studios in Atlanta in 1987 where we first heard from and then saw in action, "The Total Package" Lex Luger. Make no mistake, this was not his first time wrestling on television, as he had been a part of Championship Wrestling from Florida, but this would be his first time on a national broadcast. We will also hear from Dusty Rhodes, Ric Flair, the Four Horsemen, the World Tag Team Champions--Manny Fernandez and Rick Rude, Jim Cornette and the Midnight Express, the Road Warriors and Ivan Koloff as he brings in Vladimir Petrov to deal with nephew Nikita Koloff (who has gone soft with the American way)!

    It's' the Finger Poke of Doom! It's the "Butts in Seats" comment. It's all here! The reason WCW lost the Monday Night Wars. Not so fast!  Even though those two incidents have resonated among wrestling fans for decades, the main reason WCW lost the war is actually all wrapped up in this episode. This Monday Nitro episode sucked! Even though on this show were legendary greats like Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Charlotte Flair (as a young Ashley in the ring with her dad), Kevin Nash, Goldberg, Scott Hall, Konan, Diamond Dallas Page, Chris Jericho, Lex Luger, Scott Steiner, Buff Bagwell, Eddie Guerrero and more there were too many long, drawn out vignettes and too little pro wrestling. However, there is an interesting backstory to all this, and it has to do with the ratings when Goldberg finally made it to the arena. Enjoy!
