It’s absolutely crazy to think that World Championship Wrestling
has been dead and buried for a whopping 18 years now, yet fans still look back
at Ted Turner’s rasslin’ promotion with misty eyes over all the great memories. Well, great memories and Buff Bagwell’s mom on a pole. Oh, and
David Arquette as World Champion.
The promotion may have had some utterly bizarre and ludicrous
moments at times, but when it was really in its stride, WCW delivered some of
the most all-out entertaining wrestling television fans have ever seen. Moments
such as the formation of the nWo, Sting’s transformation, the unstoppable rise
of Bill Goldberg, and even the 1995 return of Lex Luger all live long in the memory.
With former WCW head Eric Bischoff recently announced as the new
Executive Director of SmackDown, many are hoping that the addition of Eazy E to
the blue brand will help facilitate a major creative overhaul of the WWE’s
weekly Tuesday night offering.
Looking back at his days in WCW, here are ten ideas and concepts
that Bischoff could turn to as he looks to put his own stamp on SmackDown Live.
