[TV Review] World Championship Wrestling – 1.26.91

WCW SN 1991

Commentators: Jim Ross & Paul E. Dangerously

With Main Event not airing tomorrow this week’s episode of WCW did the heavy lifting of making the final sell for this Wednesday’s Dixie Dynamite event. And sell they did with most squashes involving wrestlers that will be on that card as well as feud recaps and various interview segments. Seriously there are a lot of people on here, a staggering amount given the show only ran for two hours.

The Lineup

  • Ricky Morton vs. Rip Rogers
  • Ringside Interview: Ricky Morton
  • Sid Vicious vs. Greg Sawyer
  • Wrestling Wrap-Up w/ Gordon Solie
  • Tim Horner vs. Sheik Ali Shikar
  • Interview: Michael Wallstreet & Alexandra York

  • Doom vs. Mike Samples & Mike Hart
  • Ringside Interview: Doom
  • Brian Pillman vs. The Cajun Predator
  • The Fabulous Freebirds vs. David Isley & John Faulkner
  • Scott Steiner vs. John Peterson
  • The Royal Family vs. Keith Hart & Larry Santo

[TV Review] World Championship Wrestling – 1.5.91

WCW SN 1991

Commentators: Jim Ross & Bob Caudle

Before it was called Saturday Night the flagship show of World Championship Wrestling was simply known as…World Championship Wrestling. This changes soon enough during 1991 so I’m going to still tag it as Saturday Night on the website. The feud between Terry Taylor and Arn Anderson reaches its conclusion this week as the two face off once again, but this time there will supposedly be a clear and distinct winner. The Z-Man also makes his first defense of the Television Title against a…masked gimmick character from the Buddy Rogers era. WCW rules, man.

The Lineup

  • Sid Vicious vs. Pablo Crenshaw
  • Brian Pillman vs. Rip Rogers
  • Bobby Eaton vs. Reno Riggins
  • The Renegade Warriors vs. Ed Brock & Chuck Coats
  • Minotaur vs. Mountain Man Bailey
  • Lex Luger vs. Mike Samples
  • Michael Wallstreet vs. Greg(g) Sawyer
  • Tom Zenk (c) vs. Dr. X for the WCW World Television Championship
  • The Fabulous Freebirds vs. Keith Hart & Jamie McKinnon
  • WCW Classics w/ Gordon Solie
  • Terry Taylor vs. Arn Anderson
  • JR Interviews Lawrence Taylor
  • Tim Horner vs. George South
