'WCW with AK & Wynter Dior' is a weekly structured shit-talkin show that sheds light on the versatility of ideas that 2 Black millennials who don't give a f*ck, can come up with. Being a bit "unconventional" in their womanliness, WCW is the outlet for women to understand "WE CAN DO WHAT MEN DO AND LOOK 10x BETTER WHILE DOING IT". Interviews, drinking games, DJ mixes, current events and celebrity gossip are only the half of it..
 
Former World Championship Wrestling producer Neal Pruitt - perhaps best known to fans as the unforgettable voice of the New World Order - discusses the previously unheard stories behind the production of a variety of classic WCW Nitro moments, including: Roddy Piper's trip to Alcatraz; The creation of the nWo logo; Hollywood Hogan's initial heel 'promos'... And much more! This podcast focuses on the magic created behind the camera during an iconic period in professional wrestling. In an unpr ...

On a week where our two intrepid hosts were exhausted coming in to record a show, we have been blessed with the best Thunder in months, what a relief! On the slate this week, we have a ton to discuss:*The finer points of Irish truck stops and American fast food*DDP continues his hot streak on the road to challenging Goldberg at Halloween Havoc*A Ho…
 
We here at Because WCW have covered our fair share of awful, harebrained, nonsensical offerings from various loons somehow employed to positions of power at World Championship Wrestling over the years. This time, however, Dean and Liam cover perhaps the dullest. Joining them to look back at the 1992 Great American Bash is wrestling historian and op…
 
This special episode of the podcast sees Dean and Liam joined by a man who covered wrestling online for much of World Championship Wrestling's existence and to this day contributes to Inside The Ropes as well as running his Blog Of Doom website, Scott Keith. The trio discuss Scott's experiences as a WCW fan as well as a wrestling writer, including …
 
Yes, it's that episode. Nites of Nitro is back to witness one of the most talked about terrible booking ideas in WCW history, as the ghostly visage of the Warrior appears in the mirror. But there is a whole lot more on what turned out to be a very good Nitro:*Kidman vs. Psychosis*WCW Backstage Assault: the TV Show*DDP vs. Goldberg gets its Big Figh…
 
The era of The Giant has arrived, and WCW wastes no time showing us what an unstoppable and uncontrollable force he is as World champion. They also waste no time in hammering home their two favourite on-off long-running storylines, "Randy Savage has lost his mind!" and "what's the deal with Sting and Lex Luger?" Join Dean and Liam and take your min…
 
Thirty years ago on the very date of this episode being published, World Championship Wrestling aired the second annual Halloween Havoc PPV live on PPV. And on this momentous anniversary - not to mention the day before NXT finally brings the beloved concept back - is the perfect time for us to cover another of the most requested WCW themed show, by…
 
After our pleasant excursion to Tinseltown, we are back on Thunder Road this week with Halloween Havoc fast approaching and another taped show to endure.

The April 29, 1996 edition of Monday Nitro may well be the best one yet. Featuring a hard-hitting Parking Lot Brawl between Fit Finlay and Lord Steven Regal plus two major title bouts, the absence of Hulk Hogan continues to lead to some enjoyable hour-long television. Join Dean and Liam for more great nostalgia, insight and of course, random talk a…
 
Would you believe it? WCW begins three months of Hulk Hogan-less episodes of Monday Nitro with a really enjoyable hour of television! As fate would have it, while fans on social media bicker over how many non-finishes AEW have or have not used on a year of Dynamite, the April 22, 1996 edition of Nitro is one of the best of the early bunch despite h…
 
This week on Days of Thunder we did something a little different. Instead of your usual run down of the latest episode on Thunder Road, we pulled off that grim highway and went to see a picture show, and what better way to do our first dip into the world of cinema than with the new acclaimed documentary You Cannot Kill David Arquette?So sit back as…
 
Earlier this year, we rewatched Spring Stampede 2000 and recalled how Eric Bischoff and Vince Russo's publicised joint rescue attempt of WCW was taking on water after just six days. Three weeks later, their second PPV effort continued to confuse and depress. The PPV that features actor David Arquette entering as the defending WCW World champion is …
 
As WCW lurches toward Halloween Havoc, things start to click for the World Title match, and Dave and Lee return to break it all down. On the show this week:* ¡La venganza del Villano!*The return of Pepe upstaged by breaking news from Japan*Saturn vs. Psicosis gives us life*Stevie Ray on security putting Doug Dellinger to shame.We’ll be back in two …
 
Good news: Midlife Crisis Hulk Hogan makes his final appearance on this edition of Monday Nitro before forming the New World Order and going Hollywood that summer. Bad news: he manages to leave a horrific taste in the mouth of the watching fan on his way out with his latest desperate self-serving antics. Join Dean and Liam as they endure a depressi…
 
Today, Because WCW turns three years old! And what better way to celebrate than with Hulk Hogan and Ed Leslie's latest desperate attempts to stay relevant? On the plus side, the Hulkster isn't far in our Nitro chronicles from disappearing until he'd return to form the New World Order. Until then, Dean and Liam witness an hour of old-school wrestlin…
 
We're back with another show, and in fitting Thunder fashion, WCW followed up a significant post-PPV Nitro with a sinfully boring Thunder taped days before Fall Brawl even happened. Just be glad we watch these shows so you don't have to! Coming up:*Thunder as presented by Kevin Dunn*The continuing adventures of Mike Enos AKA Nott Steiner*JJ Dillon …
 
It's that time again folks!

As it's Nitro Week on hookedonwrestling.co.uk, we have for the first time published a second episode in a week. And it's a humdinger! Dean and Liam are joined by British wrestling media legend Findlay Martin to discuss the impact WCW's game-changing weekly show had not just on the industry as a whole, but on fans of various generations and Fin hims…

For the first time, Because WCW has a podcast episode longer than the PPV it was covering. And considering which PPV this episode looks at, we're sure you'll agree it deserves the distinction of our biggest ep yet. Dean and Liam bring in a 'third man' for one of WCW's most infamous and critically-successful efforts as Hooked On Wrestling original a…
 
Dean and Liam's run of early-1996 Nitros continues as they encounter an episode that, bizarrely, they both vaguely recalled watching on British cable TV back when it was fresh content. So, will this hour of TV, headlined by Ric Flair defending the WCW World title against The Giant and also featuring Sting and Lex Luger defending the tag team titles…
 
Days of Thunder returns amidst sweltering heat to bring you an episode where things actually happened!*Film of the year 2020 is locked up*Jericho begins an iconic feud (mostly by himself)*Some actually great PPV building*A great round of Lee guessing the Fall Brawl cardWe’ll be back in two weeks talking Fall Brawl 1998, and encourage people to watc…
 
Randy Savage has left the NWO and the Jackknife Powerbomb has been banned by WCW. Oh and there's a title match for the vacant title. Will the Steiners work together to defeat the Outsiders? Was WCW wrong to unmask Juvi? All we know is WCW in 1998 has been quite enjoyable.Episode 21 - SuperBrawl 1998 (8)Follow us @WCWvsNWOpodcast…
 
How many wrestling shows can 'boast' that their match of the night was an immediate countout that finished in a matter of seconds? Welcome to the March 18, 1996 edition of Monday Nitro, where the tag team division continues to hurt the head and the eyes of everyone unfortunate enough to pick WCW over the WWF on this particular evening back in the d…
 
Days of Thunder returns as we are 10 days from Fall Brawl and War Games, and with this week's episode being the second half of a double bill of Thunder tapings you can imagine the energy is at an all time high! This week:*Adventures in 2020 wrestling and a "fabulous" prize has been won.*The Flock remain an oasis of calm in a dessert of tossers.*Lee…
 
As advertised on the previous episode, a Lumberjack Strap six-man tag main events the 27th Monday Nitro - and they made all of the lumberjacks dress in flannel! Join Dean and Liam as they continue on the road to Uncensored 1996 with quite the enjoyable hour of television, even despite the hideously-confusing face-heel blurs. The Steiner Brothers re…
 
The lads are back for another Days of Thunder as we edge ever closer to Fall Brawl and War Games. On the show this week:* A standard of wrestling that can best be described as grim.*A brief history of Wrath.*The Flock adds to its number*The Redrum of WCWWe’ll be back in two weeks talking Thunder ep. 30 and encourage people to watch the shows along …
 
WCW had plenty of pros to supplement the many, many cons, but PPV events from the company that are widely regarded as truly great are few and far between. Superbrawl III is one of those select few that many consider to be great. So great, in fact, that friend of the podcast and BBC Sport broadcast journalist in the Humberside region Mike White insi…
 
After a difficult break away, Days of Thunder is back to give you all the WCW a body could need:*Dave's family are clearly keen listeners*Among the more tragic lacklustre debuts*Mean Gene and Brain feel their oats*Some occasional wrestling[Note from Dave: Just dropping a content warning for the first 9/10 minutes of the show, as in the fallout of r…
 
World Championship Wrestling transitioned out of the NWA/Jim Crockett Promotions in 1990, and is there a more WCW way for the company's era of infamy to begin than the Black Scorpion storyline? Ole Anderson followed up a brilliant 1989 by growling into a voice distorter to cap a massive squandering of the firm's momentum, shortly before he would be…
 
Very few episodes of Monday Nitro so far on this Watchalong series have felt like chores to watch. The February 26, 1996 broadcast, unfortunately, was a massive chore to watch. Nonetheless, Dean and Liam make it worthwhile with their audio accompaniment. Hell, just listen to the episode without watching Nitro on WWE Network, if you wish. Deep fried…
 
It's a new year and a new WCW. Thunder launched on TBS and Nitro has moved to 3 hours. The world title has been vacated! JJ Dillion vows to lay down the law to further complicate the title picture. Have the fans turned on WCW?Episode 20 - Souled Out 1998Follow us @WCWvsNWOpodcastעל ידי WCW vs NWO Podcast
 
Days of Thunder returns to its regular schedule, and for once it was nice for World Championship Wrestling to bless us with what was mostly a light and easy show to get through:*Bret's got a new beef*Jericho's got a new belt*The lads have many digressions*And Tony's on the prowl?https://www.itsnicethat.com/news/resources-supporting-black-lives-matt…
 
A question that has cropped up more than once in previous episodes of Because WCW is this: how did World Championship Wrestling manage so often to provide some all-time classic wrestling moments right next to some truly turgid excuses for entertainment? Havoc 1997 may well be the pinnacle of their trademark marriage of the ridiculous and the sublim…
 
Since WCW folded in 2001, there have been countless accounts of what went wrong. There have been many opinions shared by fans and outsiders alike as to why they stopped watching or caring. But there has been nothing quite like Guy Evans' comprehensive insight into the Nitro era. And in a very special chat recorded on May 23, the man himself joined …
 
Thunder Road takes us on our first trip to Sturgis this week, to talk about a show that certainly was a series of things that happened:*Mean Gene: Babe Magnet*The best Honda promo you’ll hear this year*An honest to God shoot DDT*Chris Jericho saves the day again.We’ll be back soon with Thunder ep. 27, and encourage people to watch the shows along w…
 
Things don't get much bigger than this. In Lee's second retro PPV pick of the month, Days of Thunder goes back to arguably the most important event in modern US wrestling: Bash at the Beach 1996. On this week's show:*Who went to a dodgier school?*On of the greatest WCW matches of all time?*Four man dog collar match: hot trash, or surrealist art pie…
 
It's a 'night of rematches' according to Eric Bischoff, Bobby Heenan, Mongo and Mongo's poor, forcibly-costumed dog. Hey, at least WCW's reliance on the same marquee matches over and over again has a fancy packaging, this time. Join Dean and Liam as they cross their fingers and pray that Hulk Hogan doesn't get his win back from Arn Anderson after j…
 
The podcast streak continues as we hit nine weeks straight of new weekly podcasts for the locked down Thunder Buddies. This week we return to our 1998 timeline where Thunder has been off air for two weeks so we have no idea what's going on (unusual for us, right?). On the plate this week:*Lee continues his MCU first time viewings, Dave has been und…
 
Dean and Liam are joined for this very special episode by WCW alumnus Jeanie 'Lady Blossom' Clarke, former valet and real-life wife of 'Stunning' Steve Austin. Clarke tells us about life on the road in the early days of World Championship Wrestling, being an ITV star without realising it, maintaining great friendships with some of her former collea…
 
It's that time of the week once again folks, and as mentioned on last week's show we are following through on weekly shows through the month of May and we are looking at a couple of retro PPVs from WCW in between our regular programming! So come join us as the show flips on its head with a period of WCW that Dave knows next to nothing about and Lee…
 
The February 12th, 1996 edition of WCW Monday Nitro answers the question: can the visual of Arn Anderson pinning Hulk Hogan's shoulders to the mat for a count of three make an otherwise-tedious hour of wrestling a worthwhile watch. Well, the answer is unfortunately no. But come and join Dean and Liam regardless as they endure everything Hogan had t…
 
The Thunder Boys are back to close out April with our first show on the road to Sturgis for Road Wild, and there are THREE DAMN HOURS of Thunder to get through. On the show this week:*Our show schedule for April including specials and a couple of announcements!*Could Tony Schiavone be the real top WCW Sleuth?*A double dose of Konnan to send Lee ove…
 
In a quirk of fate, Dean and Liam look back at the WCW PPV immediately after the last one they covered on the podcast, as the Eric Bischoff/Vince Russo collaboration era presents Spring Stampede 2000. Although just four weeks separated that and Uncensored, there were so many changes behind the scenes you'd be forgiven for thinking four years had pa…
 
Yes folks, it's that time again as we take a detour off Thunder Road to bring on a guest to take a closer look at a member of our roster on Pick Your Poison!On this episode we are joined by the one and only Jamesie ( http://twitter.com/jamesie_2015 ) from POST Wrestling's excellent British Wrestling Experience to sit around the virtual table and ta…
