Wrestling Observer Flashback–02.15.93

Previously on the Flashback, Andre the Giant died and I was sad:  http://blogofdoom.com/index.php/2017/05/15/wrestling-observer-flashback-02-08-93/

OK, so lost in the Andre obituary last week a little bit was the minor note that the WCW higher-ups are ready to shake up the structure of the company.  And did they EVER.

I’ve been putting this one off for a few days, because we all knew it was coming and no one wants to be sad.

So yeah, time for what was probably the first of what we’d now consider to be the famous Observer obituaries.

I know there’s some schadenfreude involved because I’m an embittered Canucks fan and all, but really I’m hoping for Senators v. Predators in the finals because my first preference is always for someone new to win the Cup.  Also, preferably not the Oilers.  Because screw them.

Dave missed a week, so we’re back with a JAM PACKED issue full of stuff happening like crazy.

Oh, and to answer the question that no one asked but you were all thinking, I will indeed start reposting the RAW rants in sequence as a part of these, since I’m assuming there’s a lot of people who weren’t around when I began the redos of the entire show from episode one a few years back.

Oh hey guys, we made it through the turbulent waters of 1992 together!  I’ve got a good feeling about 1993.  Bill Watts seems to be getting a handle on running WCW, Vince McMahon appears to be free and clear from his legal troubles, and Kerry Von Erich is finding steady employment again in Texas.

Yup, the future looks bright for 1993.

OK, look, if this issue teaches you any valuable lesson about Vince McMahon, it’s that steroids are bad and if you look like an abuser of them, don’t expect your push to continue much longer.

Wait, that didn’t really happen, did it?  Seriously?

Anyway…
