Vader talks a little about WCW. For those of you that have been asking why WCW does not have its own forum, it's b/c only active lucha/wrestling leagues with televised programming that I can watch from my house gets it own forum. WCW is defunct, but anyone that wants to talk about it can post here.

That would be pretty awesome. It would give us something different to look forward to instead of just RAW light.

The Top 5 WCW Nitro Moments

http://www.411mania.com/wrestling/columns/319382/The-411-Wrestling-Top-5-4.30.14:-Week-261-%E2%80%93-The-Top-5-WCW-Nitro-Moments.htm

5. Ric Flair returns By September 14th, 1998, the tide was turning on WCW. WWF was boosting high with the Attitude era while WCW was still stuck pushing the NWO so much. They were throwing out so much while Bischoff remained obsessed over ratings above all, proven by the fact this night's card was Goldberg vs. Sting, another great PPV payday given away for free. But what most remember was the promo in the middle of the show as, in tuxedos, Arn Anderson gathered the Four Horsemen with Benoit, McMichael and Malenko than suddenly remembered "Ric Flair, get on down here!" To one of the biggest pops you'll hear, Flair walked down weeks after Bischoff tried to run him out of the company on the idea that Flair wasn't needed anymore. The crowd reaction proved what a stupid idea that was and Flair was rocked by the emotion of it all. Bischoff of course had to come down so Flair ran him down wonderfully in a killer promo of every name he could get away with, a rant most fans wished they could give Bischoff themselves. A wonderful moment, so damn real and showing why, despite all the talk of the NWO and such, Flair was always the soul of WCW and proved it here.

4. Hall Debuts The May 2nd, 1996 Nitro was already a big deal as being the first two-hour show, expanding the program nicely. But what all remember is the moment when, during a jobber match, Scott Hall leaps over the barricade to enter the ring. Using his Razor Ramon accent, he cut a promo on how he and a buddy were coming down to start a war and warning Bischoff it was just starting. Most fans had no idea Hall had left WWF but what was brilliant was that the way he was presented, in character, made it look to most that this was WWF invading WCW and proved you couldn't take anything for granted anymore. It would set up the storyline that would dominate wrestling for years, push WCW to its greatest success and begin an era that would transform the business forever. Ironic that arguably the most incompetently run promotion ever managed to do an invasion with just two guys better than WWF would with an entire company years later.

3. Goldberg beats Hogan A lot can be argued about this, about WCW's decision to take a match that could have been a PPV payday and give it away for free just for a one-week ratings win. But watch the show and it's still a huge moment for the company, the Atlanta crowd hot as hell as Goldberg first defeats Scott Hall to set up the main event. The match is great, Hogan doing what he should have done with Sting and put Goldberg over by getting wailed on hard before Goldberg really takes it to him. Some interference with Hennig taken out by DDP and Karl Malone before Goldberg hit a spear and a jackhammer to win the title. A huge moment with fans going wild and really sold Goldberg as the company's new star. While his reign wouldn't be as good as it should have been, that sight of Goldberg with both titles was one of the best in WCW history.

2. The Fingerpoke of Doom January 4th, 1999. The night WCW fans can cite as the beginning of the end. After breaking Goldberg's unbeaten streak to win the World title at Starrcade, Kevin Nash was to defend the belt in the main event. Goldberg was taken in by cops over supposedly stalking Elizabeth and Hulk Hogan (who'd been making noise over running for President) arrived at the arena to challenge Nash. As the cops broke Elizabeth's story to prove Goldberg innocent, he left to try and race back to the arena (which was actually across the street from the police station). Meanwhile, on orders from Bischoff, Tony Schivone announced that on a pre-taped RAW, Mick Foley was going to win the WWF title, causing half a million viewers to instantly change the channel. Nash and Hogan got to the match, stared each other down, got ready to fight....and Hogan poked Nash in the chest, Nash went down, Hogan covered him for the three count and the two celebrated together. Goldberg returned only to be beaten down by a reunited NWO, showing fans that it was the same old-same old, Hogan and his cronies on top and new blood shoved down. In one night, WCW sent a message that they didn't really care what fans wanted to keep the tired NWO going and began the downward spiral they would never recover from.

1. Lex Luger shows up On the underrated Monday Night War DVD, a point is made at how when it was announced in 1995 that WCW was going head-to-head against RAW, most people thought it was insane and would never work. That the first show aired from the Mall of America, not a real arena just added to that and not like WCW was all that great shakes creatively at the time. They needed something to spark that show, something to grab attention...and they did. Just as Sting and Ric Flair were about to face off, Lex Luger walked down the aisle to stare at them both. Luger had been wrestling for WWF just days earlier and had given the idea he would be resigning with that company so no one expected him to show up here. It instantly sold Nitro as a show where anything could happen, a must-watch and an attitude of surprises that Bischoff would take to WCW to spark a new era in wrestling, making it the top choice for any list like this.

This sums up how WWE treated WCW after they bought it.

It's the main reason that Sting never went to the WWE.

Pretty much. I think they made a mistake by not letting Shane run WCW as a separate company, like Linda Mcmahon promised.
