One of my favorite eras of World Championship Wrestling, primarily due to the fact that I was super dialed-in during every WCW show in this era. Nitro, Thunder, WorldWide, Saturday Night — I was always watching live or putting these episodes on tapes for later.
Add in the fact that this period is what was represented in the incredible WCW/nWo Revenge N64 game, and I’ve got nostalgia overload going through these Panini cards. Benoit’s mullet, Raven’s apathetic promo shot, “White Thunder” Scotty Steiner’s airbrushed Superman logo; love it all.
Looks like I’ve got one more batch of these Panini WCW cards before the entire set of #108 is up! Look for that one within the month!
