1990 was so awful for WCW. And it was made 100 times worse because 1989 might have been the best year they ever had. At least when things were bad in 1999 and 2000 they slowly got bad. Imagine if 1996 WCW was followed by 2000 WCW and that was 1990 with Robocop, Black Scorpion, The Minotaur, the Junkyard Dog push, etc.

Being shit makes it a good year for podcasts to talk about.

Oh of course. Which is why everybody hates Dave's focus on New Japan since "wow, what an awesome match" is boring to listen to when you can just go watch the show.

WOR was named the 35th best podcast by Paste magazine.
35. Wrestling Observer Radio

As far as I’m concerned, there’s only one podcast: Wrestling Observer Radio, featuring Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez. Meltzer has been the premier journalist within the wrestling industry for decades. His weekly Wrestling Observer Newsletter is a must-read for anybody interested in what happens off-screen in pro wrestling or MMA, but his podcasts are probably the best reason to subscribe to his site. Every week Meltzer and his co-host release between three and five episodes, regularly running over an hour each, where Meltzer discusses the news of the day at length and gives his take on the biggest fight shows of the week. This isn’t really a show you listen to for entertainment—although Meltzer regularly steamrolling Alvarez and no-selling his jokes is always entertaining—but for information on a business that has tried to hide itself from outside scrutiny for most of the last century, as delivered by one of the most knowledgeable and best connected observers of the industry.
I don't know if I'd give it that because I can't see anybody who isn't a hardcore fan remotely enjoying listening to it. Non-fans would like the Conrad hosted shows because they're funny and non-fans still like hearing wacky behind the scenes stories. But while Dave going on rants is entertaining to non-fans I can't see them sitting through talk about Impact's ratings and debates on if Naito is actually better at calling matches than Okada.

I miss when Dave Meltzer used to take phone calls and trolls would ask about Big Daddy going in just to wind him up. He seems more positive on Vince Russo than Big Daddy. Which is weird because it's easy to forget he ever existed if you don't live in the UK or India since he's completely unknown elsewhere unless you're a hardcore fan. But you'd think Dave would want him in just to get people to stop asking him since he's so annoyed by it.
