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.

  • 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
  • Michael Wallstreet vs. Scott Allen
  • 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
  • Ringside Interview: Sting & Lex Luger
