It is hard to believe that it has been 14 years since WCW folded in March of 2001 and was sold for around 4.2 million dollars to WWE. This week fourteen years ago was when it all started to sink in that Wrestling was about to change forever and it would be the end of an era.
In the following six months we as fans would be given one of the worst "invasions" in the history of wrestling and many fans would turn from the business forever. But right now isn't about Invasion it is remembering the last week in history of WCW.
Being honest I remember the last Nitro like it was yesterday, but I don't remember the last Thunder as I wasn't one for watching Thunder every week as I believe by that time I was mostly watching WWF outside of watching Nitro. To quote a former WCW Writer in talking about what happened with WCW "They had the golden goose and they cut it's head off." That couldn't be more true because everyone knows the roster they had at the peak of the company but slowly but surely things started going south and never went north again. Though many will say that this final week of WCW was a long time coming I guarantee everyone single one of them would say they never wanted to happen. When it happened many thought it wasn't real, that it was joke, but it was real and it was the end of era. Look instead of me continuing to talk I am going to let the cards and the nostalgia to the talking for me.
I love looking back wrestling's past. I view my job as bring new life to the part of wrestling some people thought was gone.
