Leaving a Mark is a look at some of my favorite and not so favorite moments from pro wrestling when I was growing up. They may not all be good memories, but they stuck around for one reason or another. Each week, I look back with a modern perspective on the times I cherished so much as a kid.
In 1990, WCW unleashed The Black Scorpion on its fanbase. It wouldn’t be the first or last time the promotion would subject fans to an awful angle — for every good match NWA/WCW has delivered, there were just as many weird decisions. This one was so bad it would ruin an an otherwise good year for WCW.
In the first part of a four part series, I defend 1990 WCW. The first installment covers the first four months of the year. In the first episode we discuss the Four Horsemen as babyfaces, Sting’s real knee injury, one of the greatest matches of Lex Luger’s career, and the backstage drama between Ole Anderson and Ric Flair.
