Some Of The Worst/Dumbest Matches In WCW History (Yapapi Indian Strap Match, Junkyard Hardcore Invitational & Catch-as-catch-can match)

WCW has had some bad matches and we talk about one where one wrestler forgot the stipulation, another that was just a mess and the last with some amazing promos and the butchering of a Native American tribe.

Season 6 - Episode #30: Some Of The Worst/Dumbest Matches In WCW History (Yapapi Indian Strap Match, Junkyard Hardcore Invitational & Catch-as-catch-can match)

There is so much to unpack this week. First we talk recent news in wrestling including AEW Dynamite, NWA Powerrr and R-Truth's amazing promo with Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman on RAW.

Then for the topic we dissect three of the stupidest matches WCW has ever had. The first was a good idea and had good participants with Kidman and Dean Malenko in a Catch-As-Catch-Can Match. But didn't turn out right after a big mistake.

Then we go to the Junkyard Hardcore Invitational where 15 wrestlers battled in a random parking lot with junked cars. It's impossible to follow and boring.

Finally we go to the best one with Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair in a Yapapi Indian Strap Match. Hogan gives us two of the greatest promos in history and then the match doesn't even follow it's own rules!
