Benchamarks’ Todd Farrell Jr on “TOP 5 MOMENTS IN WCW HISTORY” via A Music Blog, Yea?
Growing up in Atlanta during the 90s, Ted Turner had an incredible hold on my childhood. Between The Atlanta Braves on TBS, and Monday Night Nitro on TNT, I learned basically everything I knew about the battle between Good and Evil through Turner programming. I witnessed the Rise and Fall of the NWO, Sting go from colorful, to white, to red, and saw Goldberg’s 173-0 winning streak. I even saw the infamous “Fingerpoke of Doom” live in the Georgia Dome with my own two eyes (a terrible site, and included on a long list of sports blunders I’ve seen in that arena). My tenure as a wrestling fan was towards the tail end of the Monday Night Wars, which is commonly agreed upon to be the decline of WCW. However, I wouldn’t trade those memories for the world.
