Thursday Thunder
16,000 Sell-Out Mid-West
91 A (was 92 first time around) 4.22 TV

Piper/Savage and Rude/Luger Argue; Dusty Books Cage Match for SuperBrawl
Dustin Rhodes defeat Rip Rogers
Dusty & Dustin Taunt 4 Horsemen
Landel & Del Ray squash Keith Hart & DeMott
DDP Orders Diamond Exchange to surround the ring & then beat down Pillman
Larry Z, Butch Reed, & Sullivan squash La Parka, Octagon, Ultimo Dragon
Robert Gibson squashes Scott Armstrong
Missy and her gang are in Dusty's office saying they're going to pay back the 4 Horsemen a little for what they did last week to Dustin
The Four Horsemen defeat Nikita Koloff, Owen Hart, and The Fantastics after Vader distracts Nikita while Jim Cornette waffles Tommy Rogers with his racquet. (Slightly disappointing 88 rating given the tag experience on both sides)
Dan Kroffat & Doug Furnas jump Los Guerreros after they accept match from Paul E. for WCW Sat. Night
World Tag Team Title Match
Strike Force (c) win via DQ against Taylor & Wallstreet w/York when Arn & Tully run in and attack Strike Force
The show ends with Jesse Ventura and his Body Shop. He tries to stir up trouble between Sting and Ricky Steamboat ahead of the World Title match at SuperBrawl. Didn't really succeed at that.

WCW Saturday Night
18, 756 Sell-Out Capitol Centre Baltimore, Md Mid Atlantic
92 A (I got too cute in the main event as it was a 95 before) 4.42 TV

Dusty comes out and announces that the doctors won't clear him to wrestle so the tag match at SuperBrawl is regrettably cancelled. He's working on replacements now and will announce them next week.
Piper squashes Finlay
The Dangerous Alliance Hype Themselves (surprising 99 given Dan & Doug have usually been killing these segments)
Dustin Rhodes defeat Kevin Sullivan
The Four Horsemen rip Dusty for chickening out on the match. Call him yellow and Dustin is too. They're going to get their pound of flesh one way or the other.
Dan & Doug defeat Los Guerreros thanks to Paul E. nailing Hector with that brick phone
Tony narrates Sting and Steamboat training videos at the SuperBrawl Control Center (shame Gordon retired in the game as he was great at those)
Rip Rogers squashes Ocatgon
The US Tag champs The Rockin' Bees, Gibson, and Trisa Taunt Larry Z & Butch saying they have a plan to deal with cheaters like you two. No DQ is fine.
Rick Rude defeated Nikita Koloff clean though Vader and Piper come down to distract each of them
Randy Savage defeated Big Van Vader via DQ after Luger attacks Randy. I switched this to a Brawl match, and evidently it made it too good of a match as the lack of psych penalty dropped this from a 95 to a 92.
Piper and Koloff run out and save Savage from Vader, Luger, and Rude beat down to close the show.

WCW Main Event

The Fabulous Freebirds III (Gordy & Garvin) argue with The Young Pistols; Dusty books the match
Dean Malenko squashes La Parka
Cornette hypes Vader, Landel, and Del Ray
Bill DeMott squashes Scott Armstrong
Backstage Cornette & Eaton run into Missy Hyatt and Owen Hart. They taunt the faces, but they're not flustered in the slightest about it. Saying that TV title will be back to them soon.
Owen Hart defeats El Cubano
Freebirds III defeat Young Pistols via DDP interfering

WCW Thursday Thunder

May Week 2 Generic South East 20,000
Rating: 95 A 4.53 TV (+0.31)
Announcers: Jim Ross, Jesse Ventura, Tony "No Mustache" Schiavone
*
Sting and Ricky Steamboat are in the SuperBrawl Control Center. They state that since everyone wants to injure them before their epic World Title match at SuperBrawl, they'll be at ringside for each others match tonight, including Sting defending that World Title against The Diamond Studd. We have each others back because that's what friends do! Sting does his howl as we go to the announcers. Rating: 100
*
Lex Luger vs Octagon
If Octagon is in the ring for the first match, it must be Thursday night. He gets put into the torture rack as the announcers talk about what we just heard and their two matches along with the Dangerous Alliance's feud with Savage and myself. Rating: 76
*
The York Foundation are in their locker room, and all 4 of them (York, Taylor, Wallstreet, and Regal) taunt Steamboat ahead of Taylor's match with him tonight. Alexandra types furiously on the keyboard and then exclaims, "Yes! With this we have no chance of losing tonight!" The 3 wrestlers move to look at the laptop as we go to break. Rating: 86
*
Ric Flair & Barry Windham vs La Parka & Ultimo Dragon
The masked mexicans keep showing their tag chemistry, but they keep getting steamrolled. This match was no different. Rating: 78
*
Randy Savage's music hits as the crowd cheers then stops as the camera shows it is clearly Rude imitating him. Piper's music hits as they cheer again, but it is Luger air-bagpiping in a kilt. No one wanted to see Paul E. in a dress so he stayed in the back. They get in the ring and start imitating Savage and Piper as the crowd boos. Rude does a decent Savage fwiw. After we let them get a few barbs in, we run down to the ring and chase them off. I add, "If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, we don't care because we're going to kick your butts in the cage come SuperBrawl. So keep laughing because you'll be eating through a straw soon." Savage snarled a bunch of stuff too. Rating: 100
*
United States Tag Team

The Rockin' Bees (c) w/Hayes vs Jason Anderson & El Dandy

Blair and Morton hadn't wrestled since Slamboree so I just threw this squash match in there along with the US Tag Titles. They controlled the match. Rating: 79
*
The announcers say that something is going on backstage. You hear a bunch of yelling as the cameraman rounds the corner. Vader and Koloff are pacing around like sumo wrestlers around the salt circle trying to come off as the bigger man in the fight, but as neither man is a bear, it doesn't work. They're just about ready to start fighting when both sides' come running over to pull their guy away. Really, it is more the managers saying to save it for SuperBrawl that does the trick. Jesse asks if we have another ring on stand-by because those two might wreck the first one. Tony adds that the refs have drawn lots and demanded hazard pay. Rating: 100
*
Butch Reed w/Teddy Long vs Keith Hart
Just a quick squash match so everyone could catch their breath/use the restroom before the two epic co-main events Rating: 67

Ricky Steamboat vs Terry Taylor w/Alexandra York
This was an even match for the first 10 minutes as the announcers hype up Taylor's over decade worth of experience. York kept checking her laptop and liked what she was seeing. Steamboat starts to turn the tide of the match when Wallstreet and Regal come down to ringside. Sting meets them at the end of the ramp as they argue. No one sees Jimmy Garvin come from the other side of the arena. He slides into the ring and pops Steamboat a few times before Ricky realizes what is going on. Ricky fights back and sends Jimmy into Taylor which sends Garvin rolling out of the ring, and then he takes a minute to yell at Sting! Sting turns to see Garvin on the floor and then points to the two guys in front of him. Steamboat kicks out of the quick roll-up by Taylor, and then goes about finishing him off as York yells at her laptop. Rating: 93

We come back from commercial to the interview area where the Diamond Exchange are laughing by Lance. "You think you're so smart you two goody-goodies. There are 4 of us and only 2 of you. We'll do whatever we want, whenever we want, and you can't do a thing about it!" The Diamond Studd adds, "And now I'm going to take that World Title from you, face-painted man." Rating: 95
*
The Main Event
World Heavyweight

Sting (c) vs The Diamond Studd w/DDP

True to his word, Steamboat came down to ringside after the two wrestlers made their entrances. Studd has spent most of his time fighting for the TV title, but he showed in this match that he might be ready to step it up a level. This was much more of a brawling match than the previous match that was more technical-focused. Sting can wrestle, but he's happier to punch people. They went back and forth as even the crowd started buying in that Studd could screw up that SuperBrawl match by winning, or the few smarks out there could be thinking I'd go for a 3-way to avoid the face vs face penalty. DDP interfered a couple times with minor things, but it was clean overall. That was until Hayes and Gordy came down to the ring. Ricky went over to stop them, but the wear and tear from the earlier match made him slow so he only stopped Gordy. With Studd faking an injury in the corner and DDP over there talking to the ref, Hayes slipped into the ring, but Sting was ready for him. Unfortunately, not for the chain wrapped around Michael's hand. Steamboat saw it and yelled, but Sting ate that fist, crumpling to the mat. Well, actually, it was to the floor mats which was there to save Sting from the loss. Steamboat came over and knocked the chain out of Hayes' hand while Gordy and DDP went around to try and roll Sting back into the ring. Studd is frantically waving for them to get him. 1...2...kickout!!!
Sting just barely kicked out as the building erupts. He starts "Stinging Up" as we don't mention that other name in WCW. Studd also shows his inexperience and starts panicking a little, taking wild swings that Sting ducks. Sting finally locks on the Scorpion Deathlock as Ricky plays crowd control on the outside. The big note from this is that Sting is yelling at Ricky after the match. Rating: 95
*
We end the show with another Body Shop segment. This time it is with Strike Force and Arn & Tully, and unlike last week, this one was easily combustible. Ventura points out a couple of times that both sides were to refrain from fighting unless they wanted to be fined by WCW's Board. Even with that, I thought they were going to brawl. Instead, they go about skewering each other with the faces pointing out that the big, bad, Horsemen had to jump a kid 4-on-1 because they aren't winning any more. Even Jesse agreed with Tito on that. Arn & Tully said that beating up Rhodes is a Horsemen tradition, and it felt great to do it again. They're not apologizing for anything, and they're not going to apologizing for beating you two all over the arena at SuperBrawl. No 10 count is going to save you then, and those titles will be back with the best tag team in the world. Rating: 100

We go back to Thursday Thunder after the show ended. Sting and Steamboat are at the top of the ramp Lance comes out there with a mic. Sting points to his head which is cut and bleeding slightly asking why that happened. Ricky says that he's one man, and maybe if he hadn't been jumped by Garvin in his match which Sting didn't prevent, he could have gotten to Hayes in time. Sting fires back that at least he stopped 2 men in Ricky's match, but maybe what they said about Steamboat being past his prime is true which was why he could only handle one man. Ricky says that that's fine because the only man I have to worry about beating is you, and I'm focusing 100% on doing that in 8 days at SuperBrawl. You can watch your own back, champ. For now. Rating: 100

Dean Malenko vs Jobber
Hired a jobber for Malenko to squash to continue his build up. Rating: 65
We go back to Dusty's office where Flair barges in. "Dusty, you're telling me who I'm facing at SuperBrawl, or I'll drag your fat behind out to that ring and break your leg again! You benched me for one PPV already, and that's something that is never happening again! WOOOO!!!" Dusty just gives him a stone face. "If you do that, I'll sue you and take Space Mountain, every Rolex watch, limousine, and jet plane you own. The paperwork on your opponent is in the process of being signed this weekend. The only thing I will tell you is that this man is on par with you, and he begged me to pick him over the large number of people that called me looking to beat you to a pulp for what you did to Dustin. You'll have your match at SuperBrawl, and I hope the man I sign beats the holy hell out of you like he swore he would. Now get OUT!!! Rating: 100

Strike Force taunt Arn & Tully again before their match. Break a leg you two. Rating: 88
*
Arn & Tully vs The Juicer and Bill DeMott
Whether it was due to those taunts or their excellence as a tag team, somehow this match took home match of the night. It only went 16 minutes too. Who knew? I doubt those two guys are going to ever be in that high-rated a match again. It stayed clean, and the heels finally put away the plucky upstarts. Rating: 89
*
We go back to Dusty's office where Missy, Owen, and Nikita are there requesting a tag team match between them and their SuperBrawl opponents, Vader and Eaton. Dusty says that's a wonderful idea. Have a great one out there, Nikita as Dusty high-fives him. Rating: 81
We go to another part of backstage instead of wrestler entrances. The Fantastics are brawling with Landel and Del Ray so clearly no one is going to be interfering in the match which was the point of the angle. Rating: 58

Nikita Koloff & Owen Hart w/Missy Hyatt vs Big Van Vader & Bobby Eaton
Clearly, I had higher hopes for this match than it delivered. Whether it was due to running it in GL instead of our main two areas or just that Owen's pop is barely in the 50's, it wasn't the usual semi-main quality WCW produces. It was still a fine match. We kept the two big guys away from each other for the most part which meant the 2 smaller men ate a lot of power moves from their opponent big man. Finally, it all broke down when Eaton tagged in Vader, and he and Nikita went at it. The ref didn't even bother to try and break up the brawl and just let the two men go at it. Eventually, it end up on the floor, and despite Missy and Cornette pleading, the count reached 10 for a Double Count Out finish. Rating: 79
*
Barry Windham stops by the interview area with Lance. He says that it is about time he gets to main event a WCW show by himself. He warns Hector Guerrero that he's made a huge mistake in agreeing to this match. This is my time to shine, and no one is going to stop that. And Dustin Rhodes, that is going to happen to you at SuperBrawl, except it will be 10x worse. Rating: 100

The Main Event
Barry Windham vs Hector Guerrero
Sigh, Barry, this is not going to help you get more main event solo matches. I have to chalk this one up to being in GL because there's literally no other excuse. No bad chemistry, no lack of psych or selling either. It was midcard quality, plain and simple. We even put up a graphic reminding viewers to stay tuned for the Body Shop with myself and Savage and Rude and Luger lest they turn off the show. Nothing really happened as it was a clean match. Just oof. Time to just run our main 3 areas I guess. Rating: 83
*
Hey, the Body Shop segments have been working so we're going to keep churning them out. Not to mention that it gets everyone on the show in one spot. Anyway, this was another combustible segment. I added that this clearly wasn't Piper's Pit which started off the chain of taunts between the 4 of us. Ventura stepped in and said that instead of a fine, the match would be canceled and the 4 of you could watch SuperBrawl on PPV at home. That kept it from devolving any further, and the rest of the segment was pretty tame. Rating: 100

We had another wrestler change his style, and this one was a dream come true. El Dandy switched to a regular wrestler which bumped him up from ET to lower midcard, and now I get to push the hell out of him like I've wanted to for awhile. His stats are too good to be jobber fodder. Not going to get him above midcard, but I'll see if a tag team is possible. He's got one with Jericho pre-set in the game, but I've still got to salvage his psych from that Basics=Psych slowing psych growth down issue. Plus, I have Lance Storm down there for that reason already.

SuperBrawl is shaping up to be a massive show so I've extended it to 4 hours from my usual 3.5. That's due to the 16 minute match length restriction, and yes, my penchant for having a huge roster.

So sorry, but this is going to get another short write-up. I've had all kinds of things go on this week irl, and I've just gotten the chance to run both Saturday shows. So, as you can see, I haven't touched the game much at all this week due to a severe lack of time. Hopefully, that will change next week, and I can churn out SuperBrawl easily. College and NFL starting back up have cut into my time.

One note: Don Owen announced he was retiring from the business in a month so I went ahead and bought out PNW and shut it down. They only had 3 wrestlers I cared about, and the last thing I need is more wrestlers on my roster. Given Piper's real life history with Don Owen and the fact that they'd been broke for several months, I just thought it the right time to do it. It was just under $100k so I didn't care.

Oh, but I did sign someone whose contract came up. He's out for several more months with a back injury (in-game not pre-set). He's just too good to pass up, and I think he'll fit in nicely.

WCW Saturday Night
19,721 Greensboro Coliseum Not a sell-out
Rating: 95 A*

Flair starts the show in the ring calling out Dusty to find out who he's facing tomorrow night. He says Dusty is all bluster, and that he had to dig up one of his old fossil friends. Dusty laughs that this person might be old, but he's not a fossil yet. Terry Funk has slid into the ring behind Flair as the crowd roars (probably warning since it is Greensboro). "Hello Flair!" Ric does the mortified slow-turn, and gets a "Boo!" right in his face. Flair tries to find an escape route, but Funk starts brawling with him first. Ric does finally bail from the ring and yells some choice words at Dusty that our mics just happen to miss.
Roddy Piper squashes Jason Anderson
Savage and Elizabeth join Piper in the interview area to hype their interference-free tag team match at SuperBrawl
The Fantastics squash Finlay and Malenko (why he fell to Opener again is beyond me)
Cornette hypes up Camp Cornette minus Eaton
Owen Hart w/Missy defeated local hire Dan Spivey
The Diamond Exchange hype their chances in the 20-man battle royal pointing out that they're 20% of the competitors (Freebirds do math! Who knew? More at 11 ).
Basically every non-jobber/non-main eventer that didn't have a match for SuperBrawl is in the match. Mainly, it was The Diamond Exchange, The York Foundation, and a few other heels against several midcard face tag teams and Robert Gibson. The final four were Gordy, Gibson, Eddie Guerrero, and Terry Taylor. Terry Gordy won the match after Robert Gibson got tripped up by DDP so he's the #1 Contender for the US Title and will face Pillman tomorrow night.
Speaking of Brian Pillman, he gives an interview saying that he's ready for Terry Gordy and looks to prove The Diamond Exchange are actually lumps of coal.
We had our usual multi-man time limit draw to close the go-home show. This time it was Terry Funk joining Strike Force against Flair, Arn, and Tully. Windham tried to get involved so Dustin Rhodes attacks Flair. Everything breaks down as time runs out.
The 2nd version of our SuperBrawl PPV Hype Video plays to end the show.

For the 5 or so readers I had on this diary, you would have guessed what I'd be saying right now. I'm going to end it. I haven't had a lot of time to even begin to write the show up, and I haven't even wanted to open TEW. From Adam posting several times that we're not playing the game "correctly" to me trying the 1980 mod that I was uber-hyped for and realizing that TEW16 isn't conducive to me enjoying the mod like 13 was for his 1983 mod to me commenting that and ticking off one of the few longtime people on the board that didn't already hate me to practically nobody reading the diary and several other games I'd rather watch people play on YT than open TEW along with the new TV season starting, I just don't see a point in me continuing the diary. If you want to read a 1991 diary, there are two that have started recently so follow them.

This is, I think, my 5th or 6th diary on here and my last until they change how the forum is set up because it is severely flawed. You have to run a prediction contest to get comments and views, and even then, your views are skewed by bots coming by upping your view count. As someone who doesn't like prediction contests, that pretty much cripples my diary from the start. I started my diary specifically because of the Photobucket mess because I naively thought that since there were fewer diaries, mine may get read. Oops...

And I do want to add that I'm well aware of the "flaws" of my diary as I've been told repeatedly before that you shouldn't sign a huge roster, have a ton of big names, and have really great shows as it renders them meaningless. I get that, and if I'd known that Savage was coming up so early, I would have used Steamboat instead of Piper. I'll never change the other stuff, and couldn't really do the last one even if I tried as equal feds tend to do that not to mention that I was trying to get to National and squash WWF.

Thank you, everyone, that read this. I hope you got some enjoyment from it. I'm going to give you my long-term plan for the rest of 1991 after the show post.

SuperBrawl I
51,000 Sell-Out Mid-Atlantic Region (Solely due to Funk's pop being gutted by USWA in SE)
Rating: 100 A* PPV Buyrate: 0.43/0.33 TV rating

TV Title: Bobby Eaton (c) vs Owen Hart
Eaton retains the title via Intentional DQ when Cornette came in a waffled Owen when he had Bobby in a sharpshooter. Steal the Show note Rating: 80 B

US Hwy Title: Brian Pillman (c) vs Terry Gordy
Pillman fought with Hayes when the ref was knocked down, and Gordy looked like he was going to win. Except DDP wanted to get in on the fun, and Pillman ducked a shot from him that nailed Gordy, knocking him out. This was to set up DDP going down to development to become a wrestler when his contract is up along with the end of the Freebirds as I'm getting rid of Garvin and replacing him with Dr. Death so the Miracle Violence Connection is the heel tag team managed by Hayes since he's on time decline. Slow Build Rating: 94 A (and lack of selling note)

Nikita Koloff vs Big Van Vader
We sold this as two monsters beating the hell out of each other. The ref wouldn't go in the ring except to count the pin, but he would still count for break-ups. That lasted for a little while, but then both managers got involved and rules kept getting broken. Finally, the ref just had enough and called for a Double DQ before sprinting to the back. This was going to set up me bringing in an enforcer (not Arn) to be the ref for the payoff match in a cage next month. Both men brawled to the back barely even noticing the match was over. Wild Brawl Rating: 80 B (anyone shocked by lack of selling note?)

Cage Classic: Roddy Piper & Randy Savage vs Rick Rude & Lex Luger
Both teams were out for blood, and it flowed a lot during the match. Thanks to the cage, Paul E. couldn't do a whole lot but yell, and Elizabeth got left in the back for her own safety since Randy couldn't protect her from Paul E. Rude came armed with a chain though, and I ate a few punches before crumpling to the mat. The mistake came when he went to toss it to Luger. Savage intercepted it and had the most sadistic look on his face as he wrapped it around his fist. Rude charged and ate it first, getting knocked out. Then, Randy chased Luger around the ring (remember no escaping just pinfall or submission). When he caught Lex, the announcers even said, "You might want to take your children out of the room right now." The ref came to, and you couldn't even see the chain as it was covered in blood. Slow Build Rating: 94 A (lack of psych)

Texas Death Match: Terry Funk vs Ric Flair
We'd run some clips of their previous matches (because last year plus is so long ago ) while he and Dusty taunted Flair. Ric cut a standard Flair promo. The announcers talked up Funk's chances since submissions wouldn't win the match (pinfall then 10 count), but come on, it is Flair against someone not on my roster. Funk gave it all he had which turned out to be a ton, and we didn't even have to mention to Flair to bleed a little since he loves to do that. Flair got the only pinfall in the match, and Funk couldn't get up before the 10 count. Slow Build Rating: 97 A Funk 84 Flair 96 performances

Dustin Rhodes w/Dusty vs Barry Windham
You could tell Dustin was a little bit nervous about being on this big a stage, and he had been all month. Barry took him through the match really well though, and it turned out they had great chemistry. We had it setup as Barry would come out and dominate early, then get cocky, and Dustin would come roaring back. Only to have Flair slide into the ring and chop block him while Barry is distracting the ref. Dusty didn't even stay to tell the ref to call for the DQ since he's the commish and all. He went lumbering after Flair leaving Windham to get the victory. Slow Build (16 min) Rating: 85 B+

US Tag Team Title No DQ: The Rockin' Bees (c) vs Larry Z & Butch Reed
This was continuing their feud from last month with the heels getting the no DQ stip added. We didn't turn it into a hardcore match because it's 1991, not 1998. It was mainly the heels cheating a lot, and the faces were in peril most of the match. They finally started building momentum after a chair shot by Blair on Reed. As the momentum built, the heels started panicking a little, and Teddy Long started getting involved. He grabbed a chair and swung...and hit Larry Z on accident. Blair stood watch was Morton crawled over to get the pinfall. Slow Build (16 Min) Rating: 87 B+

World Tag Team Titles Fall Count Anywhere: Strike Force (c) vs Arn & Tully
The top two tag teams in the world fought all over the building, but Flair's earlier interference caused the Horsemen to lose their advantage as Dusty ordered Flair and Windham to be locked in his office. So, it would be a straightforward tag team match that just happened to have no rules. Again, minimal weapon usage, as we still focused on just how good both teams are at wrestling. The fight was just as even as last month's, and we added in a few times where the ref couldn't get over quick enough to count the pin, frustrating both teams. We made sure the camera caught Tully yelling that there should be two refs out here, just more Dusty screwing the Horsemen. There would be someone else coming out, but he wasn't a ref. Terry Funk came out brandishing a chair and leveled Tully and Arn then told Rick and Tito to cover them or else! Nobody defies an order from a chair-wielding Terry Funk so Strike Force retain their tag titles. Slow Build Rating: 99 A* Strike Force 79 Tully 95 Arn 100!!! (Strike Force don't like Brawl-based matches)

Sting had his spectacular entrance before the match

World Heavyweight Title: Sting (c) vs Ricky Steamboat
After having an entire show without a clean finish granted several were perfectly legal due to no DQ rules, we kept this one just a straightforward match. Nobody interfering, plain wrestling rules, and great wrestling to send the crowd home relatively happy. I did have to truncate the match a little to 21 minutes instead of the 30 I wanted it to go due to having too many matches for even a 4-hour show. The face vs face match-up did drag the match down a little, but they put on a classic. I wouldn't have minded Steamboat having a run with the World title, but I have other plans. He might have gotten one down the road depending on when his time decline hit, but now wasn't the time as we're selling a 1-year title reign for Great American Bash '91 so Sting won with a pinfall. Slow Build Rating: 96 A Sting 98 Steamboat 95 since you're curious.

I praised Arn, obviously, Tito, and Luger who had an 87 rating in the cage match and ate the chain shots to close the match.

The only other interest of note was that Windham came in pre-show way more ripped than he was on Jan. He is now rated as a Muscular Light Heavyweight, and his Star Quality jumped from 70 to 81. I told him that he looked good, but that he didn't need to do that. I don't need a Horseman on steroids.

Okay, here were my long-term plans.

Sting was going to lose the World Title to Rude at Road Wild/Clash of Champions not sure what I was going to go with. Rude was going to defeat me at GAB to hopefully get his pop up high enough so Sting would drop the title since his Figurehead status would be in full effect at that point. Savage would finish off Luger and start feuding with the Horsemen in that lead-up to Starrcade where he would defeat Rude for the World Title.

I would bring in Nick Bockwinkel to become the new Commissioner for WCW due to the Horsemen "being treated unfairly" while Dusty went back to wrestling for a little while, mainly tagging with Dustin against the Horsemen. Ideally, Dusty vs Flair would be my "historic" Starrcade match ala Taker during the last decade of his streak. Arn & Tully were going to win the World tag titles next month to feud with the Rhodes and then the Rock N' Roll Express as Blair was going to get injured, dropping the US Tag Titles.

The Missy Hyatt vs Camp Cornette was going to rage until Fall Brawl where I was going to have several of those matches as a much-edgier Survivor Series. That's why I was breaking everyone into 4-man groups. At that point, Vader was going to go fight Pillman for the US title. Oh, and Sting was going to be busy with my mystery signing, The Great Muta once he recovered from his back injury, which just got reduced to 33 days (was 4 months, man that's the most reduction in time I've ever gotten, I think) with a successful surgery. So he is going to have some fun first.

Other than a few call-ups, that was how the main stuff was going to go. There weren't going to be too many more signings. Maybe Pritchard and Stan Lane. The only 2 WWF guys I would have signed were Mr. Perfect and Bret Hart. No idea when their contracts come up.

Thanks again for reading this diary.

Sorry to see it end. A nice write up and some well thought out plans.

Personally I wish the forum showed number of subscribed followers as that's perhaps more meaningful than views.

Maybe see you back in the future with another diary
