Trivia

At one point, WCW Saturday Night was the flagship program of World Championship Wrestling. When WCW introduced its groundbreaking weekly live primetime show Monday Nitro (and later its Thursday show Thunder), Saturday Night slowly became a show featuring WCW's up-and-comers and mid-card talent. In 2000, WCW Saturday Night was reduced to nothing more than a weekly recap show, had its timeslot moved to early in the day, and became WCW Saturday Morning. The show was cancelled entirely soon after. See more »

Good Show But Pretty Much Became Redundant
5 January 2003 | by See all my reviews

In it's heydey WCW Saturday Night was an awesome show which aired some fantastic matches featuring WCW stars such as the late Rick Rude, Stunning Steve Austin and the like. In fact, quite a few of WCW's best matches were tucked away on this show.

In it's later years, it became a recap show and after awhile it ceased to be which wasn't hard to understand. In it's later years, the caliber of matches were below average and not worth tuning into really. This show was an integral part of the now defunct WCW in the days before Monday Nitro and Thursday Thunder. However, once these shows really started picking up steam, it was hard to think of Saturday Night as an integral part of WCW. Furthermore, recap shows are not much good if you've already seen the major shows. The other factor to remember is that there were far too many hours of WCW being aired in the 90's-there was Nitro, Thunder, PPV's, Clash Of The Champions events and four syndicated programmes. WCW Saturday Night-along with other programmes-simply had to go.

However, in it's formative years it did produce some fantastic matches and it's contribution to WCW cannot be understated.
