In the years since WCW was officially bought out by Vince McMahon in 2001, it's been so easy to simply look back and laugh at some of the ridiculousness that went on during WCW's final few years. To be honest, there were so many baffling decisions and so many face-palming moments, but that's part and parcel as to why WCW went out of existence.

Yes, there really was Judy Bagwell on a Forklift match. Yes, there really was Viagra on a Pole contest. Yes, 3 Count and the Jung Dragons really did fight over a record contract. And yes, Tank Abbott really did pull out a knife live on PPV.

Despite all of the far too frequent ludicrous antics seen on display as WCW went from industry leader to complete sh*tshow, it actually wasn't all bad for the promotion during their dying days. Sure, mostly bad, but not all bad.

To spotlight the company's final year then - as in, the 12 months building up to the final 26 March 2001 episode of WCW Nitro - here are ten genuinely great things about WCW's last year in existence before being assimilated by McMahon and his World Wrestling Federation.
