WCW Saturday Night!
14 December 2003 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

This WCW show was really good with its two hour length! It was always cool when they would have exclusive interviews and such! This show in My opinion really boosted WCW in the years of 1994 through 1996! The program didn't always have huge matches but it would occasionally! There were some spectacular moments on this show however and I would never miss it on Saturday night!

Movie Nuttball's NOTE: It is not listed on the Internet Movie Database but there was also another WCW television show called WCW Sunday Night or something similar to that title. Anyway it was basically an hour show that recaps matches from the other great WCW programs including WCW Nitro, WCW Saturday Night, WCW World Wide, I believe even WCW Thunder! It was hosted by the legendary wrestling personalities Gene Okerlund and Bobby "The Brain" Heenan! However, Sunday Night would have some exclusive interviews and there was one thing that was so incredible that it has become one of My favorite moments ever in the history of just not WCW but in wrestling history! That moment was in September 1995 on the same night WCW War Games would be! Gene Okerlund interviewed Hulk Hogan on his motorcycle with many fans outside the arena! After a minute or two a big rumble would start and it was The Giant(WWE'S Big Show) driving a monster truck and everyone ran and the Giant ran over Hogan's bike and it was just totally destroyed! Hogan tried to grab the huge wrestler out of the truck but with no luck! Later that night at War Games Hogan and Kevin Sullivan were the only remaining wrestlers in the steel cage and the Giant made his way down and attacked Hogan and snapped his neck! Since I'm on the subject one night not to much later on Nitro Hogan had an interview with Gene Okerlund and when he left the ring Kevin Sullivan attacked Hogan disguised as a woman by throwing salt or powder in his eyes and also with a cane. The Giant came out and snapped his neck again and The Taskmaster Kevin Sullivan shaved Hulk's mustache! At Halloween Havoc 95 Hulk and the Giant would have two incredible match ups with The Giant being a Monster Truck match and a world title match! Back to WCW Sunday Night, Sullivan, The Giant, and other members of The Dungeon of Doom would have some exclusive interviews and segments! Watching WCW Saturday Night and WCW Sunday Night was a great way to spend the weekend!
