After spotlighting several of this legend's classic bouts on previous episodes, at last IT'S TIME! IT'S TIME! IT'S... VADER TIME! Oh yes, the Van They Call Vader steps into the spotlight for a dedicated edition of Talk'n WCW. Watch him bring out the monster in Sting, courtesy of a brutal stipulation; match power-for-power with the British Bulldog in an underrated gem; and defy Cleveland transplant Cactus Jack's bid for bloody vengeance. PLUS: Harley Race, Depression Era movie villain and 1983 Eurythmics back-up dancer. Award-winning WCW mini movies! Vader's shocking connection to the Dungeon of Doom! And probably some surprise wrestler run-ins! As a special THEME WITHIN A THEME, all of our selected matches were held in 1993 (and we totally planned it that way). Enjoy this sampling from the most dominant year of WCW's most dominant Mastodon. NO PAIN! NO PAIN! NO PAIN!
From the minds that brought you Talk'n Pop comes Talk'n WCW, a unique look at the talents and matches that built the legacy of World Championship Wrestling. Paul Wight was memorably described by long-time rival Kevin Nash as "one-dimensional," but Jenny, Tim, and Greg put the lie to that criticism by examining three -- wait, make that four! -- big time matches showcasing the versatility and dominance of WCW's Giant! With power, agility, and rapid regenerative abilities that would put a certain diminutive Canucklehead to shame, our selection of bouts highlights The Giant's prowess both in-ring and behind the wheel (allegedly). Listen as the industry's three biggest stars CRUMBLE before his might, shorn of their dignity, their gold, and their... spot! Who says WCW couldn't book a Giant?? Join us for this celebration of wrestling's BEST super heavyweight (we said what we said). AGGGGHHHHHH!!!

Then it’s off to a star-studded collision with a Canadian legend and, finally, a brawl for the ages with a legendary mathematician. Who’s Next? TALK’N WCW is next!

Beginning with the reigniting of a classic rivalry in 1995, evaluating the Macho Man's role in arguably the most important match in promotion history, and closing out with his oddly topical final singles bout, this show checks in on the key matches and moments spanning the entirety of a truly Saveege run! With "contributions" from a variety of wrestling personalities (living or not), we pay tribute to one of the industry's all-time greats the only way we know how: in true WCW fashion. What up Mach???

From the minds that brought you Talk'n POP! comes Talk'n WCW, a unique look at the talents and matches that built the legacy of World Championship Wrestling. This time around, Jennifer Smith, Tim Capel and Greg Phillips put the spotlight on Greg's favorite wrestler of all time: Bret "The Hitman" Hart! The Hitman's time in "the" WCW was relatively brief and highly controversial, but that's not to say it was entirely devoid of good things. The crew looks at a TV title match that elevates a young opponent, an action-packed Nitro main event and a near-30-minute technical exhibition to determine: was WCW Bret really that bad? So strap on your leather jacket over your Hollywood Hogan T-shirt, slide on your mirrored circular shades and prepare your finest disinterested smirk, because this episode might be the best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be!
