Anonymous asked: Why did you leave Drop Toehold?

I left last June due to being burnt out on wrestling and trying to always keep up with current things/posting about a variety of subjects. I started at the beginning and ran that site single handedly throughout a majority of 2011-2013, and after I brought in a couple of new voices to help post, I quietly took a break. I hated seeing my avatar on a site I wasn’t posting as much to and enjoyed getting away from the stressful standards I had imposed on myself for the site.

I started this place in September and have only recently gotten back to being on top of current wrestling storylines. I still shill Drop ToeHold on here (check the sidebar to the right) and on Twitter because it’s basically a sister site to WCW WorldWide but I don’t post over there any more.

mediocretesofpedestrium asked: Your blog is the fucking best. I was a huge fan of WCW in the Nitro era all the way up until the death of the company. I never collected much merch and magazines and such, but I love seeing that stuff here. I was recently going through a box of old stuff I used to have hung up in my room and was surprised to find 4 of that set of 8 WCW stickers you posted recently, and I was thrilled that the 4 Horsemen one and the Thunder logo were among them.

They are kinda neat in a nostalgic kind of way. I remembered hitting up the machine at CiCi’s Pizza that had them and halfassedly collecting them.

Flash forward to 2014 where I bought five complete sets of them off eBay for $6. Gotta figure out what to do with them here one of these days…

susantweed asked: Hello. I love your site and was looking at the merchandise section. Do you have any pics of the Randy Savage WCW/NWO banner from 1996? It was red,white and black. Icannot find a pic of this banner anywhere and am thinking it's quite rare. Thanks!

Thanks!

I’ve looked around and I couldn’t find exactly what you were talking about. I’ll keep an eye out though.

Stone Cold Steve Austin Meets Goldberg - WWE RAW [May 5th, 2003]
On his first night as the WWE RAW GM, Stone Cold Steve Austin finally crossed paths with Bill Goldberg. Austin made his way down to the ring to start his Beer Bash only to be met with a frumpy faced Bill Goldberg, who had just been cold-cocked by Christian with a steel chair during the main event. For the first time ever, both of these wrestling icons were in the ring, and it seemed like the audience was expecting there to be an all-out war between the two… until Austin broke the tension and handed Goldberg a couple of Steveweisers as a peace offering.
The final ten minutes of RAW showcased the two guzzling down drink after drink while extras and beer girls surrounded the ring. Goldberg would shoot back a drink and then pose. Austin would pretend to swim through puddles of beer that were starting to form on the ringmat. By all accounts, this continued on for another fifteen minutes after the cameras were off as Austin proceeded to get fully shitfaced for the crowd there in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

"Goldberg vs Austin: Only One Can Rule!" - TV Wrestlers Special [January 1999]
A magazine devoted to nothing but terrible pinup posters of Goldberg and Stone Cold — glad I only paid $3.00 for it on eBay.

One of the only Nitro Girls who transitioned into the role of a wrestler for WCW as she teamed up with The Filthy Animals for a handful of matches. Her signature move was a Bronco Buster lovingly referred to as the “Face Full of Stuff”.
