A hard pass from me on them as an invading faction.

I like the idea of Warrior as a tweener, the 'Ultimate Warrior' who just wants to fight everyone. Him as an anti-tradtionalist heel could be fun too.

Bret joining the Alliance could easily overshadow Owen. I'm a fan of him aligning with Sting but refusing to acknowledge Owen. It's an interesting little wrinkle, and lends itself to so many possibilities.

Shawn Michaels with the Diamond Mine is a perfect fit. Obviously there's the Kliq connection, but leaving all of that out, the cocky early '90s heel Michaels would have been right at home with those characters.

Maybe have Savage be the ringleader of the invasion, came in before to scout the opposition, and refused to join a group because he was waiting for the WWF guys to turn up?

What role will the Ultimate Warrior have in WCW?
Warrior should be a face, allied with Sting etc.
I really like the idea of Warrior in the "tag team division". In WCW, the tag team titles are important and main event level. They could have runs against many top teams -- like the Steiners, Rock N' Roll [Stocks & Shares] Express, Calgary Connection -- and against stables and invading forces -- like the Dangerous Alliance.

What role will Bret Hart have in WCW?
Bret should be a heel, aligned with no-one.
I've always wanted to see Bret live up to the "Hitman" nickname. A true "stretcher" and "tough guy", the heels hire him to get rid of opponents. Maybe he doesn't win every match -- but when he doesn't, he takes it out on the other guy. Uses those skills to injure them, even if it means getting disqualified. At first, maybe he's getting paid to work for DDP or the York Foundation, but eventually, he's getting "work" from the Dangerous Alliance.

What role will Shawn Michaels have in WCW?
Michaels should be a face, aligned with no-one.
Michaels can't really be with the Dangerous Alliance, not with Rude using a similar gimmick. I'd like to see him start as a Face. I'd pair him with a valet, like Baby Doll, work the Teen Idol or "Heartbreak Kid" gimmick, and have him work his way up the ranks.

He'd be a great mid-card champion, maybe holding the six-man titles or the television title or at some point the Cruiserweight if it gets introduced. Rick Rude and Shawn Michaels would make a natural feud, but this needs a slow build.

I really hope he isn't paired with The Diamond Mine. At this point, the Kliq hasn't formed yet, and I want to see who Michaels develops backstage relationships organically -- odds are, he won't have the same dynamics with Hall and Nash in real life. Plus, Michaels is an odd fit for a "big man stable" like the Diamond Mine.

What role will the Ultimate Warrior have in WCW?

-He's a character I could never see as a heel...Warrior always seemed babyface to me. I think easing him into scene by running through quality midcard heels (and good works at that) in the York Foundation makes perfect sense. Let him develop a bit and get red hot before jumping into to take on top heels like the Dangerous Alliance.

What role will Bret Hart have in WCW?

-I like the idea of aligning him with Sting and letting that sibling rivalry slowly fester.

What role will Shawn Michaels have in WCW?

-I like Michaels as a young cocky, heel. Either Diamond Mine or on his own two feet with a valet (I saw Baby Doll mentioned... What's Woman up to?). Michaels with the mirror around this time was great!

No way on the invasion. It’s a bit of a played out angle (even if it is 92)

For Warrior, I don’t think pairing him with sting is a good idea - he’lll literally fill lex’s shoes. We just saw savage go through
the foundation - so no go on that. You sold me on tweener Warrior taking all challenges. Make him win over the fans, and if he’s too much of a hassle backstage, let him go and say he could not handle dub cee dubya.

Hit man is more cookie cutter for me, pairing him with the stinger and letting him win over those kiddies while teasing a feud/alliance with Owen is much more interesting.

Although unoriginal, heartbreak goes to the diamond mine. Time to set up the four guys who could be the foundation for a mid 90s wow - if Vince doesn’t get at em.

Rude
Pullman
Dustin
Diamond mine(pinning lex on his way out)
Simmons
Owen
Arn

This makes the most sense to me from an in-booking perspective, though it might not be the most shocking or attention grabbing beyond the basic.

Warrior working with Sting gives him a chance to hide his issues, plus the two could work some feuds with the York Foundation or Diamond Mine to keep them busy.

A World Tag Team Title run against Freebirds or Steiners would also be quite good. Bret Hart working with Sting was interesting, but given that I've already posited Warrior + Sting then Hart could do better as a solo guy.

Maybe push him up the card slowly and quietly while Owens gets the spotlight as a DA guy. And yeah, Shawn with the Diamond Mine just makes perfect sense. Him, Nash and Hall working trios matches and maybe even dominating the World Six Man Tag Team titles for a while makes sense to me.

I think ultimately this exchange is very favorable to WCW, even taking into account personality conflicts. Warrior versus Rude is an easy one-off match that could introduce Warrior versus the Dangerous Alliance if that's how you want to proceed, and I think it would be interesting to see if Warriors beats Bret and Shawn to the title scene.

Given that we have: Bret Hart - Dustin Rhodes - Mankind - Owen Hart - Randy Savage - Ric Flair - Rick Rude - Scott Steiner - Shawn Michaels - Steve Austin - Sting - Ultimate Warrior as all being potential world champions, I'm actually unsure if guys like Hall, Nash and Page would ever even sniff the main event scene in WCW? Given their sizes, perhaps it might be far more likely that they get picked up by the WWF sometime down the line? That leaves Michaels alone again sure, but in-game events might generate some new friendships for him or something...

Edit:

Also, I'm not sure why Crockett is getting the anti-Warrior push here. IRL he was said to be a major supporter of guys like Sid Vicious over guys like Arn Anderson in terms of pushes according to Jim Cornette.

Voting is closed!

Thanks to all who took the time to vote + share thoughts. It's great to get feedback on the newcomers and the diary in general!

A few thoughts on some of the comments made before we get to the shows...

I don't see it......

I agree. I don't think I'm giving much away here to say that 'invasion' hasn't scored a lot of votes. If it had...

...this was one option I was definitely considering, the other was Ricky Steamboat being part of the group, returning to WCW to take back 'his' title after being denied a rematch back in '89. With Ric Flair having turned face, it could have been Dangerous Alliance vs. Stinger Squadron vs. Team Steamboat vs. a potential Flair-led face Horsemen...

(I'm not entirely canning this idea. We'll see what happens in the future!)

I am curious to see how Warrior gets on in the ring. He has C/C- average for his performance skills, so he'll never be great... but A* Charisma and A Star Quality should make him a bona fide headliner.

If nothing else, he's better than Sid!

I love this idea. Even if it's not Bret, I do want to have a 'hitman' character. The obvious workers on the roster right now would be Mr Hughes or Billy Jack Haynes. Hughes and Dan Spivey were set to get a medium push, but Spivey's blown out his knee so the Groundshakers are sidelined... Maybe put Hughes and Spivey together as a prototype APA?

Short answer, I needed someone to be the voice of reason here

Longer answer, I know Crockett in real life had little or nothing to do with wrestling post-Turner buyout (he was NWA president and had a brief return mid-90s, but...) so it seems like he could reasonably have been badly hurt by all that, and wants to see Flair avoid making the same errors he did.

Of course, Flair's putting his faith in Eric Bischoff, so how successful Crockett will be remains to be seen!

Anyway, it's TBS, it's Saturday night, it's some odd time like 8:05, possibly to allow for a news bulleting... it must be time for some good old fashioned 'rasslin!

World Championship Wrestling presents: Saturday Night
Saturday, Week 4 February 1992

Segment of the Night – Nikita Koloff vs. Rick Rude (c) for the WCW World Heavyweight Championship in a steel cage

How did WCW ever get by without Jesse Ventura in charge? The Commissioner enjoyed the SuperBrawl II main event so much that he booked a rematch between Rick Rude and Nikita Koloff for the World title, just three days later – and this time it would be in a steel cage! Nikita Koloff was feeling bullish about his chances before the match, and warned Rude that with no-one to help him inside the cage, the result would be very different this time around!

Inside the cage, the two men tore into one another with furious abandon, driving one another into the mat and steel cage walls again and again. Rude’s back was sliced open by the cage after just a few minutes, leaving the new champion struggling, but he managed to hurl Koloff headfirst into the cage in turn, splitting him open.

Ross: This is a bloodbath!

Dangerously: And with no way out until one man stays down – and Rude doesn’t stay down!

Ross: Neither does Koloff, unless someone hits him with a chair!

Outside the ring, Madusa looked torn as she stared through the cage at her battered and bleeding client. She turfed the timekeeper from his chair and seemed to be trying to work out how to get it into the cage, but the door was locked and there were no gaps in the cage to fit the chair through.

Rude was instead left to fight by himself, but the World champion is no slouch – even if he’d surely rather have had the Dangerous Alliance’s resources on hand. Felling Koloff with a low blow, he hurled him once more into the steel cage, widening the gash in his scalp. At first Koloff seemed able to shrug off the injury, but as the match wore on Koloff visibly weakened, so much so that a Sickle attempt was shrugged off by Rude, the impact barely enough even to make him flinch. Rude retaliated with a clothesline of his own, this one enough to stagger Koloff, although the Post-Soviet Superstar stayed – barely – on his feet.

Staying on the offensive, Rude came close to scoring a Rude Awakening, but Koloff powered out of it, slamming Rude into the turnbuckles and trying to set up a Jackhammer, but in his weakened state he couldn’t finish the move. Rude slipped free of the hold and delivered a quick and decisive Rude Awakening to put Koloff down for the second time in a week, and retain his WCW World title!

Dangerously: Yes! Did you ever doubt it, Ross?

Ross: Well, I did – but I guess I’m starting to believe, Paul. Rick Rude, ladies and gentlemen, without question, without controversy, your World champion!

WCW Hotline Show Notes

Is all well in the Dangerous Alliance? Never mind, for now, all the gold the Alliance holds – on Saturday night it was Owen Hart’s chance to Beat The Champ, but Steve Austin’s interference cost him his TV title chance against El Tigre Blanco. Hart wanted answers afterwards, and Austin admitted that he was sick of being the one Alliance member without a title, and wanted Blanco in the ring rather than facing his stablemate. When the pair joined the rest of the group later on, they seemed to have smoothed things over but... Well, you have to wonder!

What now for Ric Flair? After endorsing Sting at SuperBrawl II, might the Nature Boy be winding down his legendary career? Jesse Ventura wanted answers – but even the Body couldn’t quite get Flair to say one way or another. Flair is going to take a little time to work out what his own future holds, and in the meantime we can expect to see him exploring different avenues then he might have in the past.

Were the Diamond Mine cowed by their defeat at SuperBrawl? It doesn’t seem so – in fact, Diamond Dallas Page seemed especially confident going into his side’s match with the titanic trio of Sting, Lex Luger and Randy Savage. For all his bravado, though, it was Page who fell victim to the Scorpion Deathlock as his side fell to defeat in the six man match.

Marcus Bagwell has impressed in his brief time in WCW, including briefly landing a TV title. Facing Arn Anderson in a non-title match, Bagwell continued to show his potential, but Anderson’s experience shone through as he rolled up Bagwell for the pin – albeit with Madusa holding his hand for added leverage!

The Calgary Connection want a World tag title shot, and the Steiners want competition. Could this be a marriage made in heaven? A singles match between Scott Steiner and Brian Pillman offered tantalising evidence of greatness in the future – before Madusa slid Paul E’s cellphone to Pillman, allowing Flyin’ Brian to waffle Scott in the face with it for the pin!

Scotty Flamingo’s partner Johnny B. Badd is benched for a few weeks, giving the neon-clad Flamingo a chance to compete in singles competition. He faced Ron Simmons, hot off his extraordinary falls count anywhere clash with Cactus Jack at SuperBrawl. Simmons seems to have lost none of his competitive edge following that match, and punished Flamingo with a Spinebuster for the win. Afterwards, Trisa Hayes tried to get Simmons’ thoughts on Cactus, only for the pair to be surprised by the appearance of the man himself, shambling past as he muttered aloud on the way to his match with Dustin Rhodes. The battle between the Natural and Cactus was an uncontrolled brawl, the young Rhodes perhaps surprising many by keeping up with the unhinged Cactus as the battle spilled out of the ring, with the referee throwing the match out. Almost as soon as the bell rang, however, Cactus crumpled to the ground, and needed medical attention to leave the arena. Clearly, Cactus wasn’t fit to fight – which raises the question of what he was even doing there?

Show rating: B+

World Championship Wrestling presents: Main Event
Sunday, Week 4 February 1992

Segment of the Night – Steamboat Makes A Challenge

After his victory, Ricky Steamboat was joined in the ring by Magnum TA, who asked about the Dragon’s plans for the coming months.

Steamboat: Magnum, I try not to think too far ahead – who knows what the future holds? But I can look ahead a week or so, to next Saturday Night. And there I see me in the ring, doing what I do as well as anyone else in the world, and who I want in the ring with me is simple – any member of the Dangerous Alliance!

TA: Any of them?

Steamboat: Any of them, Magnum. One on one, so Brian Pillman and Owen Hart don’t need to worry about their titles. They beat me and Dustin dead centre in the middle of the ring at SuperBrawl, and I won’t deny that, but one on one I think I can match either of them. If Arn Anderson wants to bring the famous Anderson way against me, no problem, I’m not asking for a title shot. Same for Rick Rude, I took him to the limit a couple of weeks ago, and if it hadn’t been for Madusa, maybe I’d have already beaten him – so let’s go again, Rick, if you’re willing... and don’t worry, I’m not after your gold, not yet!

TA: And what about Steve Austin?

Steamboat: He hasn’t got any gold, Magnum!

Steamboat laughed.

Steamboat: But I’ll fight him, if he’s ready to step in the ring with me. Steve Austin didn’t look so stunning when he got disqualified last week, did he? In fact, he was the only member of the Dangerous Alliance to walk out of SuperBrawl with a loss. Do you think he might want to try again against another veteran like me?

TA: Ricky, whoever gets in the ring with you, we’re practically guaranteed a great match. I hope that someone in the Alliance steps up to answer your challenge!

Steamboat: Me too, Magnum, me too.

WCW Hotline Show Notes

Ricky Steamboat got the night off to a hot start with victory over young William Regal in the first match of the night, Afterwards, he had big words for the Dangerous Alliance!

Owen Hart and Brian Pillman may have heard Ricky Steamboat’s challenge, but they were more concerned in discussing their own challenge to the Steiner Brothers. The Connection warned the Michigan siblings that they were coming for them – and soon!

Sting was caught backstage by Trisa Hayes, who asked him about his plans for the coming months. Sting made plain that he only had one thought in his mind – chasing Rick Rude for the WCW World title! Commissioner Ventura, are you listening?

Rick Rude seemed like he was – he showed off how good the WCW title looked around his waist, and said that it would be there for a long, long time. All together: “What I’d like to have right now...” Marcus Bagwell, a former TV champion in his own right, stepped into the ring in a non-title match against the World champion. The youngster put up a great fight against Rude, who seemed a little surprised by Bagwell’s spirit, but in the end the champ put him away with a jarring Rude Awakening!

The tag team division in WCW is one of its great strengths. There’s nowhere else on the planet where you’ll see teams of the calibre of the Steiners, the Diamond Mine, the Calgary Connection, the Thrillseekers and the Lightning Express all vying for gold, to name just a few of the teams in title contention! This Sunday night saw the Thrillseekers challenging the former US tag champions the Lightning Express. The veteran Express were pushed to their limits by their young opponents, but picked up the win when Brad Armstrong drilled Chris Jericho with a set of brass knuckles.

Michael Hayes is furious over losing ‘his’ TV title to young El Tigre Blanco, and warned the masked man that he’d be back in contention soon, “so enjoy the gold until I get my chance to moonwalk on your face again, kid!” Blanco certainly seems to be enjoying the gold, as he edged past Mr Hughes with a Frog Splash to retain the gold in his second defence.

Dustin Rhodes has had a tough time of late, losing two titles in short order after gaining them, and missing out on a third at SuperBrawl. The Diamond Studd, on the other hand, has been walking tall of late – even after missing out on the World tag titles – and gained another morale boost here after claiming victory over the Natural with a handful of trunks. Afterwards, Diamond Dallas Page took to the microphone and claimed that the Diamond Mine was about to become even bigger, even more successful, even more good looking – if that was even possible! Who does the effervescent Page have lined up to join their ranks? Stay tuned to WCW programming to find out!

The WCW Six Man titles were on the line Sunday night as the York Foundation defended against the unusual combination of the Long Riders and Jerry “The King” Lawler. Despite their differing backgrounds, Lawler and the cowboys made for a great team and could have walked out with the gold, but after a distraction from Alexandra York Robert Gibson drilled Kip Winchester down low, and forced a submission from the Long Rider with the Gibson Leglock.

Show rating: B-

World Championship Wrestling presents: Saturday Night
Saturday, Week
Your commentators: Jim Ross and Paul E. Dangerously
Segment of the Night –
Ricky Steamboat laid out an open challenge to any member of the Dangerous Alliance last Sunday night, and ahead of the night’s main event he waited in the centre of the ring for a response. Dangerously stood up at the announcers’ table and, as the Alliance emerged from backstage as a group ran down Steamboat for his presumptuousness... before admitting that a match against the Dragon would be big money. It had been a tough decision as to who got to fight Steamboat, and they could have chosen for Arn Anderson... or Steve Austin... or Rick Rude... or Owen Hart... but to match Steamboat on the mat and in the air, the Alliance had decided to send Brian Pillman to answer the challenge! Madusa accompanied Pillman to the ring, but the remaining members of the Alliance waited at the top of the aisle, watching the match unfold.

Pillman and Steamboat had been on opposite sides of the ring at SuperBrawl II in a tag match, but this was the first time they’d tied up one-on-one. What followed was a clinic of aerial and technical wizardry as the pair strived to outdo one another, with both men heading to the top rope to try and finish the other several times over.

Heyman: You see, Ross? Pillman is giving up a decade’s experience to Steamboat, and he’s already that good!

Ross: Steamboat’s giving up a decade to Pillman, Paul, and he’s still that fast!

Steamboat’s decade of experience was perhaps the crucial factor at the end of the match, as Pillman went to the well once too often, trying for Air Pillman from the top rope but finding nothing but unforgiving ring mat. Steamboat went up top in turn, and in spite of Dangerously’s pleading howls Pillman was only able to stand and turn in time for Steamboat to catch him with a Flying Crossbody to score the pin. As Steamboat had his arm raised, the remaining members of the Alliance headed down the aisle towards the ring...

???: Stop right there!


Jesse Ventura appeared at the top of the aisle, microphone in hand.

Ventura: Now, ordinarily, if someone as experienced as Steamboat wants to put himself in a one-on-five situation, I’d let him go at it. Either he’s smart or tough enough to get himself out, or he’s not and learns a lesson... But tonight, I can’t let you do that. You see, we have a little event coming up called Clash of the Champions XX, and I’m not ready to put the main event at risk. At the Clash it’s going to be Ricky Steamboat against Rick Rude for the WCW World Title!

The Diamond Mine walked to the ring, led by Diamond Dallas Page. As Hall sneered at the fans, and Vegas remained silent, Page talked a mile a minute even before getting his hands on the house mic.

Page: Ladies and gentlemen, I know you’ve all been waiting to see our newest member, and believe me, we’ve not kept you waiting too long, just long enough to make sure she’s mine, all mine! Presenting... The Number One Diamond Doll, Kimberly Page!


Ross: Wowza!

Heyman: Normally I disagree with you on principle Ross, because it’s a safe way to guarantee I’m right, but... yeah, wowza! She must be some kind of movie star!

Kimberley walked down the aisle and entered the ring, joining the trio and accepting Dallas’ hand with a devoted smile.

Page: When I tell you all that I didn’t think any woman could make me settle down, I want you to understand that I’ve been to a lot of places, danced a lot of dances, and sampled a lot of local cuisines...

He gazed adoringly at Kimberly as, in the background, Vegas cracked a smile and Studd rolled his eyes.

Page: ...but that’s all over. DDP is off the market, so ladies, talk to Big Vin, talk to the Studd, but I’m all about business, until we get back home, anyway!

As Marcus Bagwell and Dustin Rhodes made their entrance for the match, Dallas turfed one of the ringside workers out of his seat and gave it to Kimberly so she could watch in comfort.

Heyman: He’s such a romantic, Ross.

Studd overcame Rhodes via nefarious means last Sunday, and this match gave Rhodes a chance at revenge. He and Bagwell went all out to try and take down the Diamond Mine duo, but on the outside Dallas proved to be a highly effective irritant, distracting Bagwell especially at critical moments. In spite of this, Rhodes and Bagwell put forward a valiant effort, and Rhodes even seemed to have the match won win a Bulldog on Studd, only for Page to drag him out of the ring by his feet as he tried to score the pin.

The referee yelled at Page, ordering him away from the ring. With his attention on Page, however, he failed to see Rhodes being ambushed by someone in the crowd, the attacker felling Rhodes with a clothesline as Vegas and Studd demolished Bagwell in the ring. As the referee returned his attention to the ring, Vegas made the cover to score the tainted victory – which Dallas and his charges celebrated as though it had won the Super Bowl.

Page: Now, I never said anything about Kimberly being the only new arrival, did I? Come on in, Shawn!


Vaulting the barrier and entering the ring, Rhodes’ black-clad attacker drew a surprised reaction from the crowd and announcers, who only after a few long moments identified him as Shawn Michaels. Michaels shook hands with Studd and Vegas, before posing with a broad grin on his face, flexing his muscles.

Page: We’re not just the Diamond Mine any more, you see. With Big Vin, the Studd and the Rough Diamond Shawn Michaels all in the hunt for gold, this is the Diamond Exchange – and if you think we played rough before, well, we’ve got a whole new lesson for you!


WCW Hotline Show Notes

I don’t know what’s hotter – Kimberly Page, or the Clash XX main event! I do know that Saturday Night got off to a hot start with the clash between Lex Luger and Thomas Rich. The former United States champion seemed on the verge of toppling the former World champion when Alexandra York interfered – but this time the referee caught the York Foundation’s executive consultant in the act! Rich was disqualified, and the York Foundation locker room was not a happy place afterward.

The Dangerous Alliance seem like a bunch of jocks some times, but Sting’s ready to stand up against his rivals at any time – although the Patriot and the Special Forces didn’t seem shy of the prospect of taking on the Alliance! Sting and the Steiners would later issue their own challenge for the Clash, calling out the Alliance in six man action... but I have a feeling that the WCW Special Forces may pip them to the post!

Could Ric Flair be on the verge of a career shift? After finding himself a little adrift following SuperBrawl II, the Nature Boy was approached by the Thrillseekers this Saturday Night and asked for tips on how to improve their performances. Flair seemed a little surprised... but why not? Who knows more about winning than the seven-time World champion? Woooo!

Can someone stop Cactus Jack trying to wrestle? El Tigre Blanco is a tough opponent, but the Television champion has never before won a match by stoppage – until he faced the wildman from Truth Or Consequences. Cactus collapsed in the ring and had to be stretchered out for the second week. Cactus may only have himself to blame, but the fans in attendance don’t need to see this!

Randy Savage overcame Dennis Condrey in a short bout, punishing his opponent with a level of intensity that seemed even greater than usual from the Macho Man.

The Steiners overcame the Lightning Express in non-title action, and seem right on course for the Clash – can any trio from the Alliance hope to overcome the combined forces of the Michigan brothers and the Stinger?
