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.

Also on the show El Gigante squashes a tiny dude, Michael Wallstreet still has some matches in the can WCW needs to burn through, and Diamond Dallas Page makes his WCW debut. BANG!
The Fabulous Freebirds vs. Tim Parker & Scott Sandlin
Ricky Morton & Tommy Rich get another crack at Arn Anderson & Barry Windham in the main event of this week’s Pro, plus Sid Vicious puts another jobber in the hospital, Michael Wallstreet is still around for some reason despite no longer being with the company, and we get to see more of the big Sting/Ric Flair match that happened at the Meadowlands last month. Yes we’re still seeing footage from that show, deal with it.

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.

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.
WCW is on Sunday and only an hour to boot this week but they still manage to jam in a bunch of squash matches, some interview segments, and about two minutes of a promised 8-man tag team match, the rest of which is airing on Main Event. Okay then.

Television gold is on the line this week as The Z-Man defends his championship against Moondog Rex. Yes a Moondog is getting a singles title shot on WCW TV. Crazy, right? Also on the show The Danger Zone focuses on trying to put over Minotaur, Arn Anderson & Barry Windham promise ‘legal’ violence, and Teddy Long cuts a promo for Doom with one Doom member missing.

This week’s featured match is a tag team contest between The Fabulous Freebirds and the weird mash-up of goofy gimmicks team TruckerNorman and The Juicer. This is Juicer’s one and only appearance in 1991 as he was fired due to sexual assault allegations stemming from his time in Portland. Starting a review on a downer, that’s my jam.

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.
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

Michael Wallstreet vs. Greg(g) Sawyer
Tom Zenk (c) vs. Dr. X for the WCW World Television Championship

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
