I've seen Michael Landsberg before but never seen this show, good interview too.

Bischoff at the start is priceless, obviously mega upset that a guy that he let go becomes bigger than all of WCW combined, in all that time WCW only made one huge star and that was Goldberg but it still wasn't enough.

Have you seen the Monday Night Wars dvd?  Fantastic documentary about the Monday Night Wars, essential viewing for all wrestling fans.

Watched it on you tube it was very cool. I think its a shame that the two did not combine sooner i would love to have seen sting up agaist taker. Im sure taker would win but it would have been cool. Wwe is good but its not as good as the mid 90's were thats when things really got good in wrestling. We should all buy a copy and wrestle each other in knock out tournament lol      relive some of the glory days

The problem when Vince bought WCW is that all the top wrestlers were on guaranteed contracts, so they would get paid regardless which is why the majority of them never signed with WWE, they were happy to sit around and get money, Sting was offered a contract but turned it down, Goldberg was the only big star who signed with the company, excluding the guys who had been there previously (Hogan, Nash, Hall etc.) but he was only there for 1 year & despite a good start, his feud with The Rock, it was deemed a failure.

Vince would never have given the WCW stars a big push. Why would he jeopardise the WWE locker room that had just helped him beat WCW in the ratings war. I don't think he would have booked Goldberg to get the better of The Rock, Even the NWO were booked to fail, The only reason Hogan's comeback succeeded was because the fans demanded it.

The whole NWO thing wasn't great bar the odd promo, as soon as Hogan turned face again that was it, i suppose Vince was always going to bury them.

Not sure if anyone has seen it yet, but i've just downloaded The Rise & Fall of WCW, i'll let you all know what i think about it when i finally get round to watching it, if it's as good as the excellent Rise & Fall of ECW then i'm happy.

Love this HBK promo in Montreal, nobody gets more heat in Canada than Michaels, for obvious reasons and the pop towards the end is mental.

i have seen that one before. i hate shawn micheals. In fact most of the dressing room hated him in the 90's. he was very arrogant and rude to the other wrestlers and he had a major drink and drugs problem that got him into all sorts of bother outside of the ring including threatening to punch a woman in the face at a bar after an argument. it's a shame he had/has such a bad attitude because there is no questioning his wrestling ability. On another note my two most over rated wrestlers are Hulk Hogan, and Ultimate Warrior with warrior being the most over rated. If you watch his matches now the only moves he ever seemed to do were clotheslines and shoulder barges. Also he was a prick in the dressing room, he once refused to sign an autograph for a young boy who was dying of cancer after making the lad and his family wait for hours.

here is the link for that Rock v Mankind match i mentioned in a previous post, the quality isn't great but listen to the noise when Austin comes out.
