NWA Saturday Night 1-6-90

I needed a project to work on and why not run through the WCW/NWA of 1990 as it was a pretty good year for wrestling.

The great thing about 1990 was the WWF had all their larger than life types with Hogan and Warrior and Savage and Andre and they were about to put on a Royal Rumble that remains a top 3 Rumble in my book to set up the Wrestlemania VI card.

And NWA/WCW lost a couple guys as Steamboat and Funk were off doing other things but they still had the core group of Flair, Sting, Luger, The Steiners, Midnight Express, etc. etc.  So you really got two totally different products and you never got the feeling that one promotion was trying to copy the other. They lived in alternate universes and did their own thing.

Anyway Saturday Night was probably my favorite wrestling program when I was younger. I loved the old studio field of the show with the 200 people in attendance having true interaction with the wrestlers. They had since moved the tapings to Center Stage to procure a larger crowd but it still had an intimate feel.

And the show was full of little surprises. As you will see.




NWA/WCW Saturday Night: Broadcast on January 6, 1990

Hosted by Jim Ross and Kevin Sullivan.

Show opens with Teddy Long in front of a blue screen promising a new Skyscraper tonight and calling out The Road Warriors.

JR and Sullivan have a weird exchange as JR tells Sullivan he thought he was going to Ireland and Sullivan says he did but then says he didn’t and couldn’t get there. They definitely ad-libbed that one. JR plugs the February Clash where Sting, Ric Flair and Arn Anderson will go in the cage against Buzz Sawyer, The Great Muta and The Dragonmaster. Let’s see if that one materializes. Let’s go to the ring.

The Steiner Brothers vs. Pat Rose and Rick Fargo.

The Steiners are the tag champions at this point and they are defending against Doom at the Clash. Rick no sells Rose’s crappy offense and clotheslines the hell out of him. Scott gets the tag and gives Rose an inverted atomic drop before letting him tag. Fargo rushes in and gets met with a tilt-a-whirl slam and gives Fargo a brutal backdrop suplex from the second rope. Rick lets Fargo regain consciousness and then gives him a bearhug belly to belly overhead suplex that mercifully ends it.

Teddy Long is with JR and says that Sid Vicious has already been replaced and you’ll see the new Skyscraper tonight…some dude named “Mean” Mark Callous. Oooo. Like that guy will ever turn out to be anything. Teddy says Sid is a hired gun and maybe he’ll have a job for him when he returns.

Back to the ring.

The Midnight Express vs. Paul Drake and “Nasty” Ned Brady.

I love when studio jobbers have nicknames. Jim Cornette tries to bring some heel heat by calling the crowd rednecks but they got a massive face pop either way. Mostly because they punked the Dynamic Dudes and if that doesn’t get you over as faces nothing will. Sweet Stan does a little wrestling with Drake and then thrusts him in the throat and body slams him. Tag to Eaton who hits Drake with a flying forearm and then an ANGLE SLAM~! Whoa. Another tag and the knee lift/neckbreaker combo follows. Stan does some karate shit and tags Eaton back in. Drake tries to take control and “Nasty” Ned comes in with two body slams but Eaton stops that shit with a knee lift and tosses Ned to the floor where Lane chokes him out with a wire cable. Ned might have been trying to go at it on his own there. Lane back in and he goes super heel with a nasty lariat. Eaton with a spring board knee drop and a choke and he throws Brady back into his corner for the tag. Blind tag for the Midnights and Lane with more karate kicks and a side Russian legsweep. Tag to Eaton and the Rocket Launcher finishes this one as Eaton does the face palm pin. Man they were a little pissed there.

And we’re right to the next match. No bullshit here.

Bob Cook vs. Norman the Lunatic.

Norman is old Stampede mainstay Mike Shaw doing one of his zillion silly gimmicks. Cook jumps on him with a wide array of punches and Norman no sells it. Body slam and a big fat leg drop. Cook rallies back and tries to go for a sunset flip…against a 350-pound man. Yeah. Norman just sits on him and gets the easy pin.

 And after the commercial another match.

The Dragonmaster and “Mad Dog” Buzz Sawyer vs. Ricky Nelson & Rick Rider.

Dragonmaster is Kendo Nagasaki. Sawyer no sells a couple of Rider’s punches and then flapjacks him and drops the big elbow. Tag to Nagasaki who adds a side slam and lets Rider tag. Nelson fares no better as Dragonmaster sends him to the floor where Sawyer abuses him. Tag to Sawyer who catches Nelson trying to do a leapfrog and power slams him for two. I like Sawyer, he’s just hammering this poor kid. Tag to Dragonmaster, who kicks and chokes a lot. Tag back to Rider and Dragonmaster with a side backbreaker and a jumping tombstone piledriver. Tag to Sawyer who hits the flying bodypress for the pinfall.

Bill Apter gives Scott Steiner (Most Improved), Ric Flair (Wrestler of the Year) and Gordon Solie (some inspirational thing) their Year-End awards. They cut babyface promos.

Back to the ring.

Flyin’ Brian & Z-Man vs. The State Patrol.

Zenk and Wright start with a wrestling exchange and Zenk takes him down with an armdrag. Wright said he grabbed his hair but the ref points out that Wright is bald so he claims the tights instead. Zenk with a hip toss and another armdrag. Tag to Pillman and the faces continue to work on the arm. Wright with a eye rake but a blind charge is countered to a sunset flip for two and Pillman with an armdrag and back to the home. Wright gets Pillman in his corner but Pillman with a nice double clothesline and noggin knocker. Tag to Zenk who sets Parker on the turnbuckle and tags Pillman, who hits Parker with a drop kick that sends him to the floor. Pillman follows with a baseball slide. Tag to Zenk and a double elbow. Zenk with the side headlock takedown and he works it for a bit. Pillman tagged in and he headbutts Parker twice before forcing a tag. Pillman with a jumping front kick and a tag back to Zenk. The State Patrol finally gain control with a blind tag and Parker pulling down the top rope for Zenk, sending him tumbling over the top and to the floor.

Wright gets Zenk back in the ring and rocks him with a clothesline. Parker comes in and goes for a spinebuster but it doesn’t work so he gets an inverted atomic drop instead. Tag back to Wright and the State Patrol do a battering ram. They continue roughing Zenk up in the corner but he and Parker knock heads for the double knockout and Zenk makes the hot tag. Pillman elevates Parker and adds a dropkick to both guys. Pillman used to be damn good before the injuries piled up. His stuff is very clean. All four men in the ring. Double dropkick from the faces. Zenk with a powerslam on Parker and Pillman hits the high cross body for three. Solid match.

(Pillman/Zenk def. State Patrol, pinfall, **1/2)

Commercial and we’re back in the ring.

Larry Santo & Shawn Regal vs. The Royal Family.

This is Rip Morgan and Jack Victory led by Lord Littlebrook and it’s as bad as it sounds. They used to be known as the New Zealand Militia which is a pretty cool name. In 1990 this would be the time I flipped the channel but the Royal Family do a nice little double corner clothesline thing. Sullivan: “I know Scott Steiner was most improved wrestler but Jacko Victory had to be a close runner up.” Yeah probably not. This shit seems to go on FOREVER. There’s the Midnight Express squash where they do a lot of cool shit and The Road Warriors squash where they are in and out in about 30 seconds because they are bad asses. Then there this shit, where two guys are going to take every bit of the five minutes they have and it seems like FIFTY. Double gordbuster ends this one and then the beat up the other guy too.

Sullivan and JR talk about the new Skyscrapers.

Randy Harris and Agent Steel vs. The NEW Skyscrapers.

Agent Steel is from parts unknown and has a mask, which means we’ve probably seen him before tonight. The cool thing about WCW Saturday Night taping is that pretty much all the stars get face pops…with the exception of the Royal Family…no one gave a shit about them.

Anyway Spivey just beats the crap of Steel and then Callous comes in and you watch him move and he had great agility for a guy his size. Callous with a slam and now he WALKS THE ROPES~! And drops a flying elbow. Holy shit! Awesome flying lariat – a move that he didn’t change in 25 years. Spivey back in and the powerbomb ends it. Spivey’s facial expressions are great and if you didn’t see there was something legit with Callous you were a fool.

JR talks with the crew and they crap on Sid Vicious. I wish Spivey wouldn’t have got injured because he has that psychotic look down pat.

Hour 2 Begins after this break!

JR is with Ric Flair and he does his usual spiel of putting over his competition but reminding them that he’s the man. We’ve got a new horseman and it’s Sting! Finally the four horseman are whole again.

Lee Scott and Cactus Jack Manson vs. The Dynamic Dudes.

For the few of you that don’t know, the Dudes are Shane Douglas and Big Johnny (Ace) in all their babyface glory. Foley is about 255 pounds here and JR puts over Cactus’ recent issues with tag partners. Double dropkick on Manson and one on Scott as well as Cactus and Scott bicker over their failed communication. Back in the ring and the Dudes go to work on the arm until Cactus fights back with a body slam. Johnny kicks off and slams Foley himself. Tag to Scott and that goes about as well as you would expect as the Dudes do a pretty cool double team – sort of a decapitation but with Johnny holding the guy in a side suplex and Shane hitting a running dropkick. Post match Foley beats up Scott and hits the Cactus clothesline.

JR talks with the returning Rock & Roll Express…OMG MULLETS~! Obviously we know Ricky Morton has one of the greatest mullets in history. He truly should have been a hockey player. But Robert Gibson is bringing it hard too, looking similar to Eddie Guerrero at his finest mullet point.

Lee Scott comes up to JR and challenges Cactus Jack to a fight NEXT WEEK!

Back to the ring.

“Dr Death” Steve Williams vs. Hacksaw Higgins.

Both guys do some power stuff and Williams with a couple of scoop slams and a nice dropkick. A running football tackle sends Higgins to the floor. Back in the ring and Higgins catches Williams on a blind charge. Snapmare and a few stomps from Higgins. One elbow drop hits for Higgins but the second one catches air. Big clothesline from Williams and a massive corner clothesline. Another football tackle and the Oklahoma stampede ends this. Basically a squash despite JR and Sullivan trying to build it as a more competitive match.


JR is with Lex Luger doing his awesome heel act. Ross trolls him a little by saying is he ever going to get sick of people saying “to be the man, you’ve got the beat the man.” Lex says he’s brought the sport into the mainstream of America. And of course he gets a massive face pop too. I swear this crowd would be excited to see the Miz.

Agent Steel  vs. “Wildfire” Tommy Rich.

Huh? Agent Steel just wrestled. He must need the rent money.

Cactus Jack enters the ring and beats the crap out of Agent Steel , tossing him right into the dressing room so now we have a different match.

Cactus Jack Manson vs. “Wildfire” Tommy Rich.

Rich backdrops Cactus and moves out of a Cactus charge and Foley takes a crazy bump over the post to the floor. They fight on the floor and Rich backdrops Cactus on the floor and rams his head into the steel steps. Foley reverses a whip and gives Rich a corner clothesline. Rich tries to rally but he’s met with an elbow and a clothesline for two. Cactus sends Rich into the canvas and rakes his eyes. Cactus roughs Rich up in the corner and Rich tries to fight back with a bionic elbow but Cactus knocks him down again and slaps on a Randy Orton special (that’s a chinlock for those of you that didn’t get that). Rich reverses an irish whip and hits a spinning elbow but misses the elbow drop and Jack gets another two count. Cactus climbs to the top and eats Rich’s boot. Clothesline from Rich and a fist drop from the second rope. Rich sets too early off an irish whip and Jack gets the boot but ducks a clothesline and Rich gets underneath with a rollup for the three count. Fun Match!

(Rich def. Cactus Jack, pinfall, **1/2)

JR with Michael Hayes. I tell you with all the shit Hayes takes and rightfully deserves, the guy could cut a very entertaining promo back in the day. He calls out Pillman and Zenk.

The Italian Stallion & Brodie Chase vs. The Samoan Swat Team.

It’s Samu and Fatu in this one with the Samoan Savage and the Big Kahuna (Oliver Humperdink) in the corner. Humperdink’s red mullet makes him look like “Mean” Mark’s midget father. The resemblance is astounding. Not much to this match, if you’ve seen one SST match you’ve seen ‘em all. Italian Stallion tries a leapfrog and Samu puts on the brakes and kicks him in the face. Nice. And then they pulled out a Doomsday Device. Nice. The Samoan Savage beats up Chase for shits and giggles as the guy is blowing spots right and left. Seriously you’re job isn’t hard. Just bump. That’s all. A Samoan Drop and flying body press ends it. That’s the third victory by flying body press if you are keeping track. All three of them beat up Stallion too, although he makes a nice go of it. Probably would have been better off in a handicap match.

Woman says she can have any man that she wants and she wants Ric Flair and she’s going to get what she wants…and really when was the last time Ric Flair said no to anything?

The Galaxians vs. Arn Anderson & Sting.

This just seems weird to type as these mortal enemies had been playing nice for about eight months. The Galaxians are more awesome masked jobbers – Alpha and Beta. Sting no sells Alpha’s stuff and Sting irish whips the hell out of him into the corner. He beats up both of them and goes for the Scorpion but Meta stops it and now all four men are in the ring and two of them aren’t faring very well. Tag to the Enforcer and he does the hammerlock slam and brings up Sting with a slingshot clothesline. Beta gets his chance and fares no better. Anderson back in and he plays the face in peril because they have to kill a couple minutes to end the show. Alpha with a hangman and Beta drops him with a right hand. Alpha back in and he misses a flying knee so Anderson can make the hot tag. Stinger splash and tag back to Anderson for the DDT finishes it.

The show closes with the new Horseman – Flair, AA, Ole and Sting. Yeah that one should be harmonious. And naturally any promo with this group is dragged down by Ole. Thankfully Arn drops some lyrical science to bring it back.

Next Week: Rock & Roll Express return to the ring. Lee Scott vs. Cactus Jack!

Bottom Line: Well Eaton did an angle slam. Cactus Jack started gaining traction and it was the superstation debut of Mark Callous, who would eventually become one of the most iconic figures in wrestling, so this was a big time show.

    Late night tv in Aus, some American show called "oh sit" came on, I don't recall a more embarrassing program to the human intelligence, and I'm a wrestling fan!

  2. I guess it can be interpreted as a bad thing, I just see it as one of those things that just wasn't such a big deal, and gets over-exagerrated in its importance. For example, seconds later, he refused to shake Orton's hand, so he kind of did what you mentioned, just not to HHH.

    ReplyDelete
  3. I don't get why Bam Bam hit both of his finishers against LT. Why not book it so LT simply rolls out of the way of the Headbutt and moonsault? Same result, but there could be the doubt that Bam Bam was at least close to winning.

  7. Yeah, but Orton is a shit head so that was just what was going to happen.

    I just thought in my opinion Batista was dead right there. Those pants and that hug. Dang. And I love the big lug. Whole lotta fun.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I basically read the comments on here, then I go to another site to read what REALLY happened. Then I make a judgement call that things were are severely over-exagerated when it comes to how bad the show was. :)

    Oh ok, just talking out of your ass then.


    It's cool.

    ReplyDelete
  10. or I read accurate, and non-opinionated recaps of what happened, then I make a judgement on if it's logical or not. I don't need to see every arm drag or flippity flop to make an opinion, ya know.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Ok, so I'm getting Mercer, Ron Simmons and Old School with Kevin Sullivan for under $12.00 total. Hopefully worth the risk.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Batista just didn't connect this time around and he's 45 so there's no need for an extended run. He obviously didn't do much as a face and wasn't really allowed to be the heel he could be because he was an HHH mercenary. Hopefully he'll make more movies and make lots of money and make a couple of random cameos as a surprise.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Well no one wants to see it is the problem. It's more to appease their own egos than giving people what they want to see. If Batista fought HHH in his last match at Mania it's more so he can have a cool story to tell his granddkids than to actually give us a cool match to tell our grandkids about

    ReplyDelete
  14. There should be an auto correct on here. "No one wants to see" should be changed to "A few smarks on a wrestling board don't want to see".

    You must concede that it takes a certain amount of hubris to believe that your opinion on a show, based entirely on third party recaps, would be more accurate than that of a group of people who had actually watched the show in question?

    ReplyDelete
  18. I do love how lots of people on here basically do the same thing, with the line "I did not watch, but from what I read in the comments, I'm glad I didn't miss anything, it sucked!"



    That's like going to a KKK sponsored site to see if the Chris Rock comedy show was any good.

    ReplyDelete
  19. (wonders where you find such recaps, is pretty sure you're just bullshitting.)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Or they could have done a deal where Bam Bam hits his finishers, gets over confident and takes a minute before attempting a pinfall.

    ReplyDelete
  21. not meant rude: but how does that contradict anything I wrote?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Often 411. (no, not the commenters, just the actual recap). Kind of boring to read, but it's mostly precisely what happened. Or if I have 3,5 hours at my disposal, I might try Andy's recaps here. (would be less time consuming to watch the actual entire show)

    ReplyDelete
  23. There was a Colosseum video of him back in the day. Wasn't too good.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Find it weird that Horowitz gets a lot of offense on Jarrett and goes back to being a jobber again.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Or a Distraction/roll up finish! that would be awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Jarrett always gave jobbers offence. Even in his debut match against a total nobody, he needed mind games and cheating to win. Made him look like a chump from day 1.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Can high school gyms even hold 100,000 people?

    ReplyDelete
  34. I kind of chuckled that you implied that your cousins are sub human and not worthy of being considered as "your family"

    ReplyDelete
  35. Yep, they might have lost out on live gates, but the WCW settings were cool back then. My favorite was BATB 95, on an actual beach. Incredible visual.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Bigelow was actually supposed to be in for a pretty big face push. The WWF thought they had a ton of momentum from WM XI's LT-based mainstream publicity. The plan was to take all three regular main eventers (Diesel, Shawn, and Bam Bam) from the big two matches on the show and push them as the top face triad in the company. They kept pushing NBC to re-air the Diesel/HBK and LT/Bigelow matches from Mania on a live prime time special. This was when the networks were much more powerful than they are now and it would have been a huge coup for the WWF. But NBC pushed the special further and further away and it finally aired on a Friday or Saturday prime time death spot in September. mania was long forgotten by then and the show got slaughtered in the ratings. By that time, the Bam Bam push had fizzled, as I think he got most of the blame for KotR's horrible buyrate. Diesel and Shawn became the top two guys and Bigelow spent the rest os his short time in the WWF jobbing to big upcoming heels (Bulldog, Goldust).

    ReplyDelete
  37. Too many "N" and "M" states.

    ReplyDelete
  38. absolutely. a recap/highlights show like the Action Zone in its later incarnation seems to fly by like nothing (a match from Superstars, ppv report, a match from Raw, highlight packages, maybe one last match - over).

    ReplyDelete
  39. It's a shame it's financially unfeasible for WWE to do that kind of thing, it might freshen up the look of the show every so often.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Bam Bam getting the blame for the KOTR buyrate is like Miz and R Truth getting the blame for that Survivor Series Buyrate against Rock/Cena.

    ReplyDelete
  41. HEY! He did beat Mantaur on Superstars. Are you telling me there is no huge honor in that??



    It was hyped as "The Beast from the East, versus Half Man, Half Beast!"

    ReplyDelete
  42. Thank you very embedding the match. Heenan was in top form, but you see how a vindictive little man Tony was. Heenan owned him all match and Tony had no comeback and played right into Heenan's hand. So when the match is over Tony tried to get Duggan over there, off camera mind you, so that he could tell Duggan how Heenan had buried him. Not Because he made Duggan look bad, because he made Tony look bad.

  43. Mongo is awesome immediately... trying to get all his digs in on Bobby and marble mouthing them all. I loved him from the first minute he started.

  50. You would think the WWF would have swiped up the State Patrol and packaged them with the Big Bossman.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I think the weekly TV was all right, it's just Bash '91 was so bad it sours the entire year for the promotion. But there was a lot of decent stuff in 1991 with Luger hitting his peak as a heel and The beginning of the Dangerous Alliance near the end of the year.

    ReplyDelete
  52. THIS is why there NEEDS to be a 'Best of WCW Saturday Night' show. There's all sorts of little bits and things that would feature throughout the show, and since all they had was Sat. & Sun. night timeslots, they would feature a lot more stuff than WWE would on Challenge, Superstars, Primetime, and even the early years of RAW would sometimes.

    ReplyDelete

  58. The fifth season wasn't bad but yeah, ABSOLUTELY stop after S5 at the latest.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I hated 5 the first time I watched it, mainly due to Julia Stiles, but upon second viewing I preferred it to 3. "Evil motivational speaker" is still a lame Big Bad however. 6 has its' moments, but good lord were the last two seasons of Dexter some of the worst shit ever. Me and my friend almost quit watching halfway through 8 when it was on Netflix, but we toughed it out because why not finish a show you've dedicated so much time to?

    ReplyDelete
  60. Maybe they should have planned things out better instead of making ridiculous promises from the outset.

    ReplyDelete
  61. They really should not have promised him the Rumble win and the title. It was just so anticlimactic and a slap in the face of the six months prior that it was so easy to just shit on the whole thing.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I was there in person. As you'd imagine it was chaotic. Really only the people immediately at ringside had any idea what was going on. The Pillman/Liger match was probably the highlight for the crowd. I'd say easily 2/3 of the crowd didn't even realize Luger was there. It wasn't a great experience in terms of a wrestling show, but for free in a mall, with Hulk Hogan and all the TV production... it was pretty fun.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I'd love to see the bit when the Midnight Express do a "warm-up match" against the masked "James Gang" and Jim Cornette goes crazy when they show up. "That's Dusty Rhodes and Magnum TA!" "How do you know, they're wearing masks!" "Ray Charles can see who that is!"

    ReplyDelete
  64. I'm talking more towards the end of 90 with the Black Scorpion, and where they basically they needed to get the belt off Sting because they missed up his run horribly and needed to basically rebuild him.

  65. I loved when the WWE had Shotgun Saturday Night. i was at one at Club Mirage. The best one was at Penn Station.. Tombstone on an escalator!!

  66. Or we could not have twenty minutes plus wasted on a Triple H match where he wrestles his 45 year old buddy again.


    Seriously, if he's going to wrestle, do what he did from Wrestlemania to Payback this year, put over younger guys. Not this self-serving blow job shit like he was doing with Taker and Lesnar for three years.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Well, it wasn't good the last time they did it at Wrestlemania. I doubt ten years later is going to be a big improvement.

  68. So you're judging a show you don't watch? Okay, got it.

  69. I haven't seen the Godfather yet, so based on this random review I read on 411, I can safely say it's probably the worst movie of all time.

  77. Maybe I'm just feeling crazy, but I think we might be in store for an all fine raw tonight. With the holiday expect less eyes on the product and expect some killer matches out there. These guys are motivated and ready to perform. I expect a series if *** or better matches tonight. I'm expecting a real fun show.
