[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
  • 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
  • Feud Recap: Missy Hyatt vs. Paul E. Dangerously
  • Arn Anderson & Barry Windham vs. Rick Ford & Carl Robertson
  • Video: Anderson & Windham Go ‘Basic to the Basics’

Commentators: Tony Schiavone & Barry Windham(?!?)

Bobby Eaton and Arn Anderson square off this week on Worldwide to determine the new #1 contender for Z-Man‘s Television Championship. Considering Eaton already has the title shot coming up at Dixie Dynamite this makes absolutely no sense but we’re gonna just go with it lest WCW’s incoherence start breaking me down psychologically.

The Lineup

  • Doom vs. John Faulkner & Greg Sawyer
  • Bobby Eaton vs. Arn Anderson
  • Michael Wallstreet vs. Larry Santo
  • Scott Steiner vs. Rick Ford
  • Lex Luger vs. Magnum Force Speedy
  • Sid Vicious vs. Brian Worley
