Leaving a Mark: Defending 1990 WCW (Part III)

The rise of the Black Scorpion.

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.

The first half of 1990 in WCW was filled with bad booking and goofy gimmicks. There was backstage infighting and booker Ole Anderson did not want to seem to give the young guys a chance. Yet, the year was still a good one. Ric Flair and Lex Luger continued to have a great series of matches while the much maligned Capital Combat was a pretty good card.

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

In the third part of his four part defense of 1990 WCW, Nathaniel examines the changing philosophy of the promotion. He also goes into how despite all the silliness, the promotion was still putting on some of the best wrestling on the planet.
