P2B Greatest Crockett/WCW matches

Recommended Posts

My buddy JT at Place2Be Nation is doing a Crockett/WCW greatest matches poll that will last throughout the next year. It will be a nice way for us old school fans to jump into some footage we enjoy. Fans of the 90s WCW can sink in. I never had a chance to complete the DVDVR project for Crockett so it will give me a chance to explore and rank those matches. If you would like to participate, here's the Facebook link. 

https://www.facebook.com/groups/GWCWMatches/

 

Feel free to discuss those matches here at PWO as well. I'm pretty excited about this.

I'm not a Facebook guy either, but I'll go ahead and post some here that should definitely be in the discussion if someone wants to add them to the Facebook Page - or, if we want to start posting some here.  Some of these are going to be the most obvious ones, but I look forward to some recommendations I possibly haven't seen yet... might as well start at the top:

  • Slaughter & Kernodle vs. Streamboat & Youngblood - 03/12/1983
  • Tommy Rich vs. Buzz Sawyer - 10/23/1983 (GCW/NWA)
  • Roddy Piper vs. Greg Valentine - 11/24/1983

  • Ric Flair vs. Ricky Morton - 07/05/1986
  • NWA US Tag Team Champions Midnight Express vs Fantastics - Clash of the Champions I

  • Eddie Guerrero vs. Rey Mysterio Jr. - 10/26/1997
  • Sting vs. DDP - 04/26/1999

I'll add one that wouldn't make the tippy top of a list, but might be Randy Savage's last really good match and could be top 100  worthy...

Bret Hart vs. Randy Savage - Slamboree 1998

A really great TV match that comes to mind:  WCW World Heavyweight Champion Ric Flair vs Brian Pillman - 4/13/91

Add:  Sting vs. Cactus Jack - 6/20/1992; Dustin Rhodes vs. Vader from COTC XXIX; Sting vs. Vader Fall Brawl 1994

I agree with Bret vs Savage from Slamboree. Considering that Savage wrestled that one with a blown out knee, the result is still amazing for the limitations he had.

I'm in the Facebook group but turns out this is a much cleaner resource. Thanks to everyone listing things to save me the trouble of making my own, god bless you all.

There is no set list. The above and the Facebook page will provide suggestions and recommendations but we wanted to remove the nomination project since in previous projects, people voted for non nominated matches anyway.

Cool. I will work on putting together a big list of 80s recommendations later for JKWebb to add to his master list (thanks for starting that!). There are some major things missing so far. The first WarGames hasn't been mentioned and that's either my # 1 or 2.

For those of us non-Facebook users, I propose we use the Greatest Matches Ever forum:

http://gweproject.freeforums.net/

Also, unless I missed it in the thread, is it a top 50 matches, top 100?

We are also compiling a google doc with all match recommendations, will share that wherever the thread ends up.

Top 100, Elliott.

Should be a lot of fun!

So, I'm assuming this is Mid-Atlantic >>> Jim Crockett Promotions >>> WCW matches only?  I saw a Georgia match on the list, so I was just curious.

Here's a link to the Google doc with recommendations from the Facebook page. I'm trying to make recommendations slowly to keep the conversation going, rather than just one big dump of recommendations(I assume others are doing the same since there are some notable omissions from this doc). Anyone in the FB group feel free to add to it. I'll try to cross-reference this thread periodically and will add recommendations to make sure we don't miss anything. Really looking forward to this project.

Yeah, GA shouldn't be on there. You have the path correct, 81-01 on that through line.

I didn't want to post a big list of recs because Zubaz said he was trying to start them out slowly to keep discussion moving. Pretty much everything I would have recommended for the 90s have been nominated except for a few, so I figured I'd add those and hold off on 80s recs for now. I did include one 70s match though because I just watched it and didn't want to forget it.

So I'd put these matches up for consideration:

Greg Valentine vs Wahoo 9/7/77

Barry Windham vs Brian Pillman Taped Fist Superbrawl 5/19/91

Vader vs Ricky Steamboat 4/24/93

Vader vs Ricky Steamboat Lumberjack Match 10/16/93

Larry Zbysko vs Steven Regal Slamboree 5/22/94

Terry Funk vs Tully Blanchard Slamboree 5/22/94

Vader vs Hacksaw Duggan Starrcade – 12/27/97

Steven Regal vs Fit Finlay Parking Lot Brawl – 4/29/96

Hulk Hogan & Dennis Rodman vs Lex Luger & Giant – 7/13/97

 

Also I saw on the Google Doc Criteria:

"- If a match or event was promoted by Jim Crockett or Ted Turner owned-WCW it counts for this project."

Does that mean the AAA/IWC When World's Collide show is acceptable, because it was promoted on WCW. If so I'd include
El Hijo del Santo & Octagon vs Eddy Guerrero & Love Machine Double Mask vs Double Hair 11/6/94

Perro Aguayo vs Konnan Steel Cage 11/6/94

 

I think that would cover the 90s for me.

There were also a bunch of WCW-NJPW co-promoted events: the Tokyo Dome show in March 91 and the 1/4 Tokyo Dome shows in 92 and 93 plus the North Korea shows in 95. The first of these shows had Steiner vs. Hase & Sasaki, for example.

I'm drawing a line on co-promoted events:  When Worlds Collide has always been more of a lucha card and all of the WCW/NJPW cards were more puro in style.  I won't be voting for them because I don't think they fit neatly into the Crockett/WCW criteria.  Others may disagree but that's how I'm approaching it.
