Leaving a Mark: Defending 1990 WCW (Part II)

The second part of a look back at 1990 WCW.

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.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly wrestling podcast, PTW!

In May 1990, WCW put on one of the most infamous pay per views of all time. Just a mention of its name will lead to a look of understanding followed by disgust. It is one of the few things all wrestling fans are able to agree on. However, the card had lots of great matches. One of them was so good, the WWE put it on one of their Best of compilations. So, why do fans hate the event so much?

In the second part of an ongoing series, Nathaniel defends 1990 WCW and Capital Combat in particular. He discusses why it is a great card, why fans do not seem to like it, and what it meant for WCW and its fanbase. The episode also includes a discussion about the booking of WCW and why they may have made some of the odd choices they did.
