History

Although the name "World Championship Wrestling" had been used as a brand and television show name by various promotions affiliated with the NWA since 1982, (most notably Georgia Championship Wrestling and Jim Crockett Promotions) it was not until five years later that an actual NWA-affiliated promotion called World Championship Wrestling appeared on the national scene, under the ownership of media mogul Ted Turner and based in Atlanta, Georgia. The WCW logo from 1999 to 2001. ... Georgia Championship Wrestling was a professional wrestling promotion whose self-titled TV program aired in the 1970s and 1980s on U.S. cable channel TBS (Turner Broadcasting System). ... Jim Crockett Promotions was the name of a professional wrestling promotion owned by Jim Crockett, Jr. ... For other persons named Ted Turner, see Ted Turner (disambiguation). ... Atlanta redirects here. ...


Jim Barnett, who had worked for the World Championship Wrestling promotion in Australia, came to Atlanta in the 1970s during an internal struggle over the NWA Georgia territory. Barnett wound up as the majority owner of the territory, and he wound up using the name for the territory's television program. // History Jim Barnett begun its game working in 1991. ...


While initially the new company was called Universal Wrestling Corporation, very shortly following the purchase the decision was made to utilize the familiar "World Championship Wrestling" name for the new promotion. The company went through various changes in its' leadership and booking over the following years. Some people, like Jim Herd and Kip Frey, were completely lacking in wrestling experience; others, like Bill Watts and Ole Anderson, had extensive wrestling experience, but were so entrenched in the old territorial methods of promotion that they were ineffective at building WCW's audience.


While Eric Bischoff has received much criticism for some of his mishandlings while he acted as WCW Executive Producer (and later, WCW President), Bischoff combined an understanding of wrestling (albeit without as much of a respect for the old Georgia/NWA legacy) with a willingness to make changes that were needed in order to help WCW become more visible in the eyes of the media and advertisers. These changes including moving some television tapings to Disney MGM Studios in Orlando, and signing both main-event performers and young stars from around the world. Eric Aaron Bischoff (born May 27, 1955[1]), is a former professional wrestling booker and on-screen personality, most known for serving as President of World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and later General Manager of World Wrestling Entertainments RAW brand. ... Disney-MGM Studios is a theme park in the Walt Disney World Resort, Florida, USA. It opened on May 1, 1989. ...


Some of the creative freedoms that Bischoff granted main-event level talent, ironically enough, helped to bring the company downhill, as main-event level talent were less than cooperative in helping rising stars fulfill their potential. Once Bischoff was relieved of his duties in 1999, Vince Russo, a former writer for the World Wrestling Federation, came on board to become the lead writer of WCW. Russo did not last long in his position, but in April 2000, WCW opted to bring Russo and Bischoff back in hopes that the duo might re-spark interest in WCW. Vincent Michael Russo (born January 24, 1961) is an American writer, known for working for American professional wrestling companies, most notably the World Wrestling Federation and World Championship Wrestling. ... World Wrestling Entertainment, or WWE, is a professional wrestling organization. ...


The two, however, did not get along, and Bischoff left the company after Vince Russo - in the course of an in-ring promo - made comments about Terry Bollea (aka Hulk Hogan) which many felt were derogatory not just to the Hogan character, but to Bollea himself. Terrence Gene Bollea (born on August 11, 1953) is an American actor and semi-retired professional wrestler better known by his ring name Hulk Hogan. ... Terrence Gene Bollea (born on August 11, 1953) is an American actor and semi-retired professional wrestler better known by his ring name Hulk Hogan. ...


As 2000 came to a close, a number of potential buyers for WCW were rumored to show interest in the company. Ted Turner, however, was still in charge of Time Warner prior to the final merger of AOL and Time Warner in 2001, and most offers were rejected. Eric Bischoff, working with Fusient Media Ventures, made a bid to acquire the company in January 2001 (shortly following the AOL/Time Warner merger), and it appeared that WCW would continue. Time Warner Inc. ... Fusient Media Ventures is a venture capital group that collaborated with Eric Bischoff in an attempt to purchase World Championship Wrestling. ...


However, one of the primary backers in the WCW deal backed out, leaving Fusient to take that offer off the table while it attempted to bring a new deal around. In the meantime, World Wrestling Federation Entertainment (now World Wrestling Entertainment) began speaking to the new AOL Time Warner about acquiring the WCW brand. Jamie Kellner was handed control over the Turner Broadcasting division, and deemed WCW wrestling to be out of line with their image. As a result, WCW programming was cancelled on both TBS and TNT, leaving Vince McMahon's company, which at the time had an exclusive deal with Viacom, free to acquire the trademarks, video libraries and a few contracts. World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc. ... World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc. ... Time Warner Inc. ... Jamie Kellner is an American television executive. ...


One of the truly mind-boggling facts about the sale is that WCW was under litigation with various lawsuits pending, and AOL TimeWarner still had to pay various performers their guaranteed deals, as many had contracts directly with the parent company, and not with WCW. Since McMahon only acquired select assets, the shell that was once WCW became known as Universal Wrestling Corporation once again; its only purpose now, however, was to deal with old contracts and lawsuits.


Overview

At the outset of WCW's existence, as well as with the promotions that came before it, the company was strongly identified with the Southern style of professional wrestling (or rasslin'), which emphasized athletic in-ring competition over the showmanship and cartoonish characters of the WWF.[3] This identification persisted into the 1990s, even as the company signed former WWF stars such as Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage AND the hollywood hitman. WCW dominated pro wrestling's television ratings from 1996 to 1998 (84 straight weeks) mainly due to its incredibly popular New World Order storyline, but thereafter began to lose heavy ground to the WWF, which had recovered greatly due to its new "Attitude" branding. Repetitive story lines, questionable booking issues, and corporate restrictions eventually led the promotion to began losing large amounts of money, leading to parent company AOL Time Warner selling the name copyrights and tape library to the WWF for $4.3 million in 2001.

In the late 1980's, WCW based itself regionally, mainly doing all its shows in the Deep South. WCW was the more popular choice among fans in the Deep South in comparison to the WWF. A few years later, WCW slowly started expanding nationally making it a national rival to the WWF, which led to a huge ratings competition between the two promotions. Despite signing big name stars from the WWF,WCW eventually lost out and folded in 2001. The WCW legacy still lives on in WWE.

From 2000 to late 2001 there where a series of monster trucks based off of wrestlers' names. These include, nWo (2000), Sting (2000-2001), Nitro Machine (2000-Currently Inferno), Madusa (2000-Present), Goldberg (2000-2001). The first to go was nWo which only ran for a season. Next all but Goldberg, Nitro, and Madusa were retired after the WCW sponsor was lost. Nitro then became Flashfire then was converted into Inferno. Madusa has stayed as the same name ever since it was created, because it is driven by a woman whose name is Madusa.
