50 Forgotten WCW Stars


There's no real narrative to this list aside from "Here are people that existed" so I'm kind of unsure on the point, but there ya go.  

Comments

  1. Lenny Lane really is very similar looking to Lionheart Jericho.

    They did a few things with that when Jericho was feuding with Dean Malenko I believe. Lane was a Jericho imposter.

  3. No memory of Bobby Blaze whatsoever.

  4. R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A.May 24, 2015 at 9:59 AM

    Scott Putski is SO forgotten that they forgot that he ended his career (literally) in WWF.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Just 50???

    I could probably get that list to 800.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I thought he was in the WWF first?

    ReplyDelete
  7. How could we ever forget Oz, the WWE Hall of Famer?

    ReplyDelete
  8. I remember him more from his GWF days.

    Did he come back from the knee explosion?

    Who are you to forget El Dandy?

    They really need to do a "Greatest Mullets of the 80's/90's" series.

    FINALLY! Jerry Flynn is a jobber no-more!

  12. I love how Norman the Lunatic was "all over WCW TV in the 90s." But I guess it is consistent with WWE-approved history where Hulkamania happened, then nothing happened until mid-1998 when the DX invasion turned the corner in the Monday Night War

    ReplyDelete
  13. 50 is way too many entries for a WWE.com click-bait article.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Goldberg beat about 60% of these guys multiple times during his streak

    ReplyDelete
  15. Did he? He was in WCW in 98. Think he even got a shot at Goldberg's world title!

    ReplyDelete
  16. When there's a "Forgotten Stars of WWE" in 50 years, I hope The Tank is one of them. He changed the business.

    ReplyDelete
  17. He still needs to give Chris back that Loverboy tape.

    ReplyDelete
  18. George South wins the job guy mullet contest in a walk.

  19. Funny, Chae just got a mention on here a couple days ago.
    DJ Ran? GET ME A FLAMETHROWER. I will remove him from "my area".
    Lodi: Sign Guy! No, not the ECW one.
    Paulshock: Trish - Talent and about 1.5 on the Look Scale.
    Symphony: Not bad.
    Johnny The Bull: Springboard Leg Drop to the floor? That's a shattered ass.
    Wildcat Willie: hi why wcw fire wild cat willy
    Silver King: Three more wins and he becomes Golden King.
    Lash Leroux: Him being on the USA! shirt still irritates me.
    Blacktop Bully: So we've had one of the Faces of Shaw (Norman), and now one of the Faces of Dawsow.
    Kendall Windham: Talent is NOT Genetic. See: fuck that, I shouldn't have to name any of them.
    Elix Skipper: Hey Shelton, you made it on here!
    Scotty Riggs: CLAP, MOTHERFUCKER. Also: Buff Bagwell's career highlight.
    Doug Dellinger: Hey, he was cool at times. Mostly useless and comic relief, though.
    Judy Bagwell: WHY?
    Bobby Blaze: How do you spell Jobber?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Former Smoky Mountain Champion Bobby Blaze to you. No, I had no idea he worked WCW either, though I don't think showing up as a random jobber is that notable unless it's Edge or Glen Jacobs or someone like that.

    ReplyDelete
  21. he has a book on Kindle that is available through Prime or for 4.50. It's not worth the 4.50

    ReplyDelete
  22. Is that the most over played thing on the network? Seriously, it seems every time I watch a wwe talking head special. I have to see that in some form or another. "This is your life" doesnt even get as much mention as that.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I remember every last one of them.

    I also remember that Silver King is only a few flights away from being upgraded to Gold King.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Putski left WWF after his knee injury, debuted in WCW and took the opportunity to burn every bridge he had.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Pretty telling that a good chunk of those guys were all losers from the post fingerpoke era.

  26. James M. FabianoMay 24, 2015 at 11:54 AM

    I can't believe I am the first to say this, but....Chris Benoit?

    ReplyDelete
  27. James M. FabianoMay 24, 2015 at 11:54 AM

    In other words....we're still talking about it, bro?

    ReplyDelete
  28. He's actually in the WCW Mayhem game. I think he helped with the motion capture or something like that.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm really gonna be pissed off if Joe Gomez isn't #1.

    Any mention of Nitro Girl Chae is welcome and appreciated. Good on you, WWE.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Well yeah but the thing is I remember when it first aired and it was like "ha! That was funny". And it was never brought up again until it was dug out of mothballs a decade later and suddenly that was the turning point in the "war".

    ReplyDelete
  32. Lenny Lane and Lodi: The Billy & Chuck of their day.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh, man, they really put him as "Sgt. A.W.O.L." and not even as the Bond villain-looking "The Wall?" He's spinning in his grave right now.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Holy shit, I forgot about Scotty Riggs going from his pirate gimmick to suddenly having a vanity gimmick for reasons never explained. To anyone. Because he's not a handsome man, like at all. (Now if they had given him that gimmick ironically, it could have worked!)

    ReplyDelete
  35. He had a deceptively stocky frame as well. Mike Tenay reminded us of that a few times.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Shawn Michaels forgot about Doug Dellinger too judging by how he snubbed Doug at the first WWE Network NXT special last year.

    ReplyDelete
  37. He lost half of his money for his intro after three appearances. At the end, Oz was just Nash in a cape jobbing to Ted Arcidi or Bill Kazmier - they all look a like. I get Bruce Wilhiem and Dan Reinhardt confused all the time.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'm still writing my new book - working title I can never use due to lawsuits: Hulk Hogan: Things I never said, brother.

    ReplyDelete
  39. AverageJoeEverymanMay 24, 2015 at 3:46 PM

    I was able to rent it for free with Prime. It's not worth free either.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I got through 2 before I got tired of clicking. Money, you ruin everything!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Who or what the fuck was Wildcat Willie?

    ReplyDelete
  42. Robinson TilapiaMay 24, 2015 at 4:35 PM

    The WWF/E version would be fascinating. Up until a few weeks ago, I had completely erased the Gymini and the Dicks from my memory.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Lol I vividly remember that dude because he was prominently featured on whatever the wcw early Saturday am show I used to watch while I was in junior high.

    He would dance around whatever graphic they showed when they came in and out of breaks. I hated him of course, and I remember my young sister who would be stuck watching it with me loved him and would always do some dance he did.

    I'd bet if you went to a shitty mid 90's wcw pre nWo house show he would have been all over the place.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I thought Scotty Riggs was supposed to be a heartthrob type wrestler? Wasn't that kind of the AM's gimmick? They were supposed to be the 'blowjob' team?

    ReplyDelete
  45. He was in World War 3 one year. Pretty sure I threw him out of ring 1.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Don't even recognize half of these people. There seemed to be a large number from the late 1999-2001 era, which I didn't watch.

    ReplyDelete
  47. i remembered all of them (tear).. gone and not forgotten....

    ReplyDelete
  48. better looking everyday it said on his mirror...

    ReplyDelete
  49. they did it better too in my book.

    ReplyDelete
  50. All I remember about Hardwork Bobby Walker was:

    1. He wore a robe, which was usually reserved for people higher on the card;
    2. His theme music was a knock off of Eye Of The Tiger;
    3. His box haircut;
    4. He didn't work very hard.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Johnny The Bull was once able to gorilla press slam RIKISHI! That's pretty fucking impressive if you ask me.
