Not Too Bad Except For The Last Few Years
5 January 2003 | by (England) – See all my reviews

WCW Worldwide was one of four syndicated WCW shows that aired in the 90's-the others were WCW Saturday Night, WCW Pro and WCW Main Event. All the matches were taped a couple of weeks before this aired.

The show featured some pretty good matches, pretty good depending on your view of the now defunct WCW product. WCW-which tried to emulate the WWF in 1992-also had a magazine style format for this show usually where Eric Bischoff (now WWE Raw General Manager) talked about the latest happenings in WCW. There were also clips of one match from a previous PPV and clips from the other syndicated programmes.

WCW fans will know that the last few years of WCW's existence were miserable. WCW had been a pure wrestling orientated organisation for years although it was not a success all the time and suffered due to poor management at times. From 1994, it was a modest success due to the signing of Hulk Hogan and the first PPV meeting of Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair. The best years were 1996-1998 where the New World Order led by a heel Hulk Hogan ran wild. Sadly, late 1998-2001 was abysmal as WCW became a chore to watch due to the fact it was being run by bureaucratic idiots who didn't have a clue what the fans wanted.

Back to WCW Worldwide, for it's last few years it was mainly a compilation programme and the quality of it was poor (as was the quality on all of WCW's programmes during it's last years). The announcers were alright at times but like a lot in WCW, there was no consistency as announcing teams changed on a regular basis.

All in all, a good programme for it's formative years but a compilation of poor matches for it's last few years.
