EOTR Retro: The 5 Worst WCW PPVs

By @TrueGodImmortal




Though WCW is remembered fondly for a number of their great moments and matches and the NWO storyline, there were many low moments in the history of the company. Today, I wanted to take a look at the five worst WCW PPVs in the company's history and I'll be honest, it wasn't easy to pick them out. That's how bad some of the WCW time periods were. Let's take a look at the five worst.

5. Halloween Havoc 1995


-There used to be a very special feel around Halloween Havoc.... but this year was not one of them. Despite a solid opening contest between Johnny B. Badd and Diamond Dallas Page, we saw Randy Savage wasted on a 1 minute match with the Zodiac (then a 5 minute match with Lex Luger that made no sense), a way too long battle between Lex Luger and Meng, a weird match with Sabu and Mr. JL, but nothing compares to the debacle that was the Hulk Hogan vs The Giant saga. Just avoid this at all costs. It is a horrible show.

4. Superbrawl 2000


-I just.... I don't understand. This could have been a solid event... maybe. I don't know. I really just don't....I mean.... perhaps the saving grace of the show is James Brown. That's right. WCW brought in James Brown to sell a show. If that doesn't tell you how bad this was then I don't know what else to tell you. Brian Knobbs vs Bam Bam Bigelow was as horrible as it sounds, the James Brown segment features a fake James Brown and went 12 minutes, The Wall battled The Demon (no relation to Finn Balor), Tank Abbott vs Big Al, Big T vs Booker T (Ahmed Johnson fell off so badly), a terrible tag team stretcher match, a weird Lex Luger vs Hulk Hogan match with both men well out of their prime and a 8 minute triple threat main event between Scott Hall, Sid Vicious, and Jeff Jarrett for the WCW Title. This event is absolutely awful from top to bottom with literally no saving grace besides Ric Flair vs Terry Funk.... 20 years beyond their prime.

3. Uncensored 2000


-Honestly, Uncensored was just a horrible PPV idea period. Aside from 1997 and 1998, all of the Uncensored events sucked. This was a cringe worthy event and a recent watch of the show was full of skips and head shakes and all around sadness. Norman Smiley and The Demon as a tag team? The Wall vs Bam Bam Bigelow? Billy Kidman randomly teaming with Booker T to take on Harlem Heat 2000? Dustin Rhodes vs Terry Funk? Sting vs Lex Luger? A 7 minute WCW Title Match between Sid Vicious and Jeff Jarrett? Another Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair match? Who the fuck was booking this bullshit? Nash? Russo? Bischoff? Hogan? This was absolutely awful and a disgust to watch as a wrestling fan.

2. Uncensored 1995


-The 1996 version of the event was awful as well honestly, but this show is my least favorite of them all. It's honestly a clusterfuck of a PPV, with some of the most random matches and the worst booking. Let's look at some of the matches. The Blacktop Bully vs Dustin Rhodes. In a King Of The Road match. Well okay. A martial arts match with Meng and Jim Duggan. A boxing match with Johnny B. Badd and Arn Anderson. What the fuck type of event is this. Randy Savage and Avalanche? Someone pray for the viewers. Big Bubba Rogers and Sting in the most boring match with a subpar ending? The main event? Hulk Hogan vs Vader where they teased the Ultimate Warrior arriving only for the.... Renegade, a knock off version of The Warrior to come out and save the day, face paint and all. I have nothing left to say about this event. At all.

1. New Blood Rising 2000


-Dear Lord, help us all. Fuck WCW and anyone who loved them during 2000. This is dirt. This is dog food. This is garbage. This is awful. Sting vs The Demon. 52 seconds. A mud rip off the clothes match with two women who did nothing wrestling wise. Ernest The Kat Miller against the Great Muta. A strange tag team title match. A Canadian Rules match. A triple threat that turned into a one on one match because Goldberg didn't want to take the Jackknife and walked out during the match while the announcers criticized him for not doing business, but worst of all, it features the JUDY BAGWELL ON A FORKLIFT MATCH. FUCK YOU WCW. FUCK YOU. Like, the event was named after the New Blood Rising group and it wasn't even a group in existence by the time the show came around. If that doesn't show how trash this show was, then I've got nothing left to say except fuck you WCW.
