Season 6 - Episode #43: It's Me Austin! (The Greater Power/Higher Power) and the 20th Anniversary of David Arquette as WCW Champion

WWE has a history of ruining well built up angles but this one is by far the worst. The Greater Power (also known as Higher Power) story was a massive one that spanned five months and utilized the biggest names in the company. It had good, if not bizarre, character development and was pretty intriguing at least. But in five seconds they threw it completely down the drain with the worst reveal in wrestling history.

We also have to celebrate the 20th anniversary of our show's Patron Saint David Arquette winning the WCW World Heavyweight Championship. On April 26th, 2000, he pinned Eric Bischoff to become the first actor to hold the gold. He went on a memorable two week run culminating in a heel turn at Slamboree in a triple cage match with DDP and Jeff Jarrett.
