Worldwide is stacked to the brim this week as not only are we graced with the presence of Gordon Solie on commentary but some of the biggest stars in the company are in action, including the WCW World Heavyweight Champion himself Ric Flair and…Magnum Force Rick. Okay look they aren’t all superstars.
Michael Wallstreet vs. David Isley
The Steiner Brothers vs. Mike Samples & Magnum Force Rick
Sid Vicious vs. Unnamed Jobber w/ Blonde Mullet
Ron Simmons vs. Barry Windham
Ricky Morton, Tommy Rich, & Junkyard Dog vs. Lt. James Earl Wright & The Master Blasters
This week’s Worldwide is a good one (no, really) as Arn Anderson challenges for the Television Championship, The Freebirds have an honest to god worthwhile match, and The Steiner Brothers truck the everloving hell out of The Master Blasters.
Brian Pillman & Brad Armstrong vs. The Fabulous Freebirds
Sid Vicious vs. Dave Johnson (Power Hour – 2.2.91)
Clip: Sting (c) vs. Ric Flair for the WCW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP (Meadowlands – 1.11.91)
Doom vs. Scott Allen & Carl Robertson
Tom Zenk (c) vs. Arn Anderson for the WCW WORLD TELEVISION CHAMPIONSHIP
Power Hour starts of WCW’s weekend of shows by re-airing a bunch of stuff from the past two weeks of Pro. Back then it made sense as Pro didn’t air everywhere and Power Hour was on TBS. Watching it now, however…different story.
Minotaur vs. Keith Hart (Pro – 1.19.91)
The Master Blasters vs. Tim Parker & Scott Allen (Pro – 1.19.91)
Rick Steiner vs. Mike Samples (Pro – 1.19.91)
Wrestling News Network w/ Gordon Solie
Brian Pillman vs. Lt. James Earl Wright (Pro – 1.19.91)
Terry Taylor vs. Joe Barrett (Pro – 1.19.91)
Tom Zenk (c) vs. Moondog Rex for the WCW TELEVISION CHAMPIONSHIP (Pro – 1.12.91)
This week on Pro we get a couple of fun squash matches (including one that makes Minotaur of all people look good), an actual competitive match between Brian Pillman and Lt. James Earl Wright, and a vignette from Arn Anderson & Barry Windham that…hasn’t aged well, to say the least.
The Master Blasters vs. Tim Parker & Scott Allen
Rick Steiner vs. Mike Samples
The Danger Zone w/ Paul E. Dangerously & Ric Flair
Brian Pillman vs. Lt. James Earl Wright
Brickhouse Bonus w/ Jack Brickhouse
Terry Taylor vs. Joe Barrett
Minotaur vs. Keith Hart
The Southern Boys vs. Ed Brock & George South
Vignette Time: Arn Anderson & Barry Windham Go ‘Back to the Basics’
Worldwide is the third (!) of four (!!) shows to air on Saturday from WCW. Granted it’s syndication so it did probably vary from area to area but I’m going with the stuff I’ve seen on the internet and the internet never lies to me. Main event is, uh, Ricky Morton vs. Bobby Eaton but not the one from Power Hour. In fact it turns out the Power Hour one was from two weeks ago and originally aired on Worldwide. WCW continuity is going to drive me crazier than I already am, can’t wait!
The Master Blasters vs. Pablo Crenshaw & Todd Brewer
