I’m going down to Memphis today for whatever reason with a random episode of USWA Championship Wrestling on WMC-5. We’ve got Dave Brown and Michael St. John calling the action at the WMC Television Studio this morning. The run down the matches we’ll see this morning and then tell us that after the break will get down to action.

Time for more early 90s WCW! Time for Main Event! Our hosts for the evening are the tandem of Jim Ross and Missy Hyatt. JR explains that things are really heating up between “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair and the biggest man in sports today, El Gigante. Oh fuck…

WCW Clash of the Champions XVI: Fall Brawl (September 5, 1991)

We begin things with a brief video that gives us a rundown of the main matches on the card before heading to the Civic Center in Augusta, GA where we are joined by our hosts for the evening Jim Ross and Tony Schiavone. They talk about what’s going on tonight and then throw it to their broadcast colleagues who are standing about ten feet away from them.

Eric Bischoff, Missy Hyatt and Paul E. Dangerously talk about what they will be doing during the Clash. Missy Hyatt is apparently still on her quest to interview a dude in the locker room and promises an interview with the World Heavyweight Champion, Lex Luger. Paul E. is going to interview the man who will challenge Luger for the title at Halloween Havoc, “The All-American” Ron Simmons. Bischoff then throws it over to the ring announcer to get the Clash underway with the first match of the evening.

WCW WrestleWar ’91 (February 24, 1991)

WCW WrestleWar '91

With William “Steven” Regal recently announcing a WarGames match for the upcoming NXT pay per view special I decided to go back and watch some old WarGames matches to get me super excited. Since I’d also been randomly watching WCW from 1991 it made sense for me to watch the WarGames match from that year, so let’s go back to February 24, 1991 for WrestleWar ’91!

WCW Main Event (December 29, 1991)

We’re joined by Tony “The Greatest Night In The History of Our Sport” Schiavone and Missy “I Don’t Blow Jobbers” Hyatt in the WCW Command Center for an action packed episode of WCW Main Event.

They make some small talk about Christmas and Missy says that the only thing that was wrong was people had a hard time getting the entire Neiman Marcus store into her house as gifts. Schiavone no sells it and starts talking about the upcoming Battlebowl match at Starrcade, which will begin in an hour’s time. Schiavone wants Missy’s pick for the man who’s going to win it all. She hems and haws a bit so Tony says he’ll get her pick later and throws it down to the ring for action!

Tim Hall vs. “Flamboyant” Eric Embry (USWA June 29, 1991)

“That goofy Leatherface” makes his USWA debut, coming out with Embry and Ta-Gar to scare the hell out of Dave Brown and Michael St. John with his chainsaw.

Embry cuts a promo and yells some shit about Jerry Lawler. He declares, “Well you know, Lawler’s a little bit more stupider than what I thought he was,” and then gets in the ring with youngster Tim Hall.

Randy Johnson vs. Ta-Gar (USWA June 15, 1991)

Ta-Gar the Lord of Volcanoes apparently comes from space and arrived in Memphis in the summer of ‘91 looking for gladiators to challenge. A youngster by the name of Randy Johnson answers Ta-Gar’s call and promptly gets beat down via a flaming claw hold. “Superstar” Bill Dundee shows up with a chair to chase Ta-Gar off before bellowing some shit about needing a belt around your waist if you want to get real paid and then challenging the decidedly beltless Ta-Gar to a match.

Memphis baby!
