RIP Canon MP620 — your scanning served me well over the years but I guess the recent lightning storm killed you.
Scans and posts will be light for a bit until I can figure out an alternative…

Sting Talks to IGN About His Future in the WWE

Not only did Sting show up at the San Diego Comic Con, he did a couple of on-camera interviews with various outlets. There’s nothing in this clip that’s mindblowingly newsworthy, but you get to see The Man Called Sting in full makeup discussing the WWE… which is still pretty awesome to see.

Goldberg vs The Rock - WWE Backlash [April 27th, 2003]
Whenever I came across the March 2000 issue of WOW Magazine with The Rock and Goldberg on the cover, I thought the idea of the two working together was just a pipe dream. My 16-year-old brain had pegged Goldberg as the cornerstone of WCW, and I just knew that there was NO WAY he’d ever go over to the World Wrestling Federation. He was Team WCW for life!
Little did I know that Team WCW only had another year in existence before folding, but still — Goldberg vs The Rock was a huge dream-match for me.
I was completely let down by the ECW/WCW Invasion angle and had actually started to turn away from professional wrestling altogether but once Goldberg showed up in the WWE, I was right back on-board.
Great photo.

[This Day in WCW History] WWF Invasion PPV Took Place in Cleveland, Ohio [July 22nd, 2001]
The beginning of what should have been the greatest event in professional wrestling history, but numerous factors kept this show reaching that legendary status. Due to several of the main stars of World Championship Wrestling still being locked into guaranteed money from Turner and the WWF refusing to match the contracts dollar-for-dollar, the WCW team didn’t have the star power behind it needed to be taken seriously. Along the way, an ECW faction formed and joined WCW’s fight but the angle played out on television as being orchestrated entirely by various members of the McMahon family behind each group.
Regardless of how poorly planned this entire angle was, the PPV ended up with 775,000 buys - the HIGHEST number of buys for a Non-WrestleMania PPV from the WWE.
The WWF Invasion card in its entirety:
 Edge and Christian (WWF) vs Lance Storm and Mike Awesome (ECW)
Earl Hebner (WWF) vs Nick Patrick (WCW) Singles match with Mick Foley as the special guest referee
 The Natural Born Thrillers (Sean O’Haire and Chuck Palumbo) (WCW) vs The Acolytes Protection Agency (Faarooq and Bradshaw) (WWF)
 X-Pac (WWF) vs Billy Kidman (WCW)
 Raven (ECW) vs William Regal (WWF)
 Chris Kanyon, Shawn Stasiak, and Hugh Morrus (WCW) vs Billy Gunn, Big Show, and Albert (WWF)
 Tazz (ECW) vs Tajiri (WWF)
 WWF Hardcore Champion Jeff Hardy (WWF) vs Rob Van Dam (ECW)
 Trish Stratus and Lita (WWF) vs Torrie Wilson and Stacy Keibler (WCW) in a Bra and Panties match with Mick Foley as the special guest referee
 The WCW/ECW Alliance (Booker T, Diamond Dallas Page, Rhyno and The Dudley Boyz) vs Team WWF (Steve Austin, Kurt Angle, Chris Jericho, The Undertaker and Kane)
