Previously on the Best and Worst of WCW Great American Bash: The Blood Runs Cold guys stole the show, Chris Jericho and the Ultimo Dragon tried to kill each other for real, and Hulk Hogan celebrated the one year anniversary of his industry-changing heel turn by losing a tag team match with a basketball guy.
… And Previously on the Best and Worst of WCW Monday Nitro: WCW sold out most of the Georgia Dome six days before a pay-per-view and were like, “You know what? Let’s just have the pay-per-view here.” William Scott Goldberg is the new WCW World Heavyweight Champion, Scott Hall returned as an awkward obstacle, and Diamond Dallas Page gave Karl Malone the worst double high-five you’ve ever seen.

I will always be a fan of WCW’s themed pay-per-views, and an even bigger fan of their art department’s “whoops, we forgot we’re supposed to be at the beach for this, somebody run to Walmart and buy half a dozen double-X Hawaiian shirts and some luau party favors” laissez-faire style. “WCW beach business casual” is right behind “WCW at a biker rally” on the list of fun dad looks. Your WWE announce team favorites could never.
