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.

[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)

Anonymous said: Regarding the WCW podcast, watch OSW Review and listen to Attitude Era Podcast, those are your style models. Do it from Nitro starting until the end, since that's when most people watched.
Listen and love both of the shows, Jay’s even given me some advice about how to handle things regarding the number of Facebook pages that just copy-and-paste entire posts of this site for their pages.
Doing a weekly Nitro or PPV actually would require me to watch each show individually. I honestly don’t have the time to go through that kind of prep on a weekly basis with my current real-life work schedule (68 hours last week).
Monthly shows though… maybe.
Anonymous said: You should do a WCW podcast! I don't think there's that many out there that just focuses on it.
Thought about it. Truth be told, I had a idea in place for all these marks I wanted to hit in the first year of doing this site. 1000 Tumblr followers, 1000 Facebook likes, 500 Twitter followers… all which would lead up to a podcast that’d debut on the site’s anniversary on September 1st.
Since I blew past all these marks in half the time I expected, I’ve been scrambling trying to decide if a podcast is worth my time again. Then, there’s all these other questions:
- What should the format be?
- Should I find a set team to record with? Who should I recruit since I run the site by myself?
- Should I have a new guest every time I record and risk having drops in audio quality and content quality for the shows?
- Would a standard review show be entertaining enough or should the podcast be more about reminiscing about angles and characters I (or we) liked or disliked?
- Do I honestly want to give up my time to extend this project of mine further, something I do for fun and don’t earn a cent with??
I have the equipment, the producing experience, and fandom to do a perfectly listenable WCW podcast… I just don’t have desire to get into that world again.
Yeah — until I can sort my brain out, I wouldn’t expect a show from me anytime soon.

I found the one I posted over on eBay. I’ve only seen one pop up, so they’re seemingly rare.
