I was at that show. BIGGEST. POP. EVER.
If you haven't seen The Rise & Fall of WCW DVD...well then you must.
The main things to take from it are the WCW was never run by wrestling people, they buried the younger guys, they had no idea what to do with Bret Hart, they gave away PPV matches on Nitro (aka Goldberg beating Hogan for the title), Jeff Jarrett thought he literally was "The Chosen One", Vince Russo had no one to reel him in like Vince did in WWF.

NWO vs. WCW/4H
The Fall Brawl ring, with the trap door for The Warrior to use back in '98, is what helped lead to British Bulldog's death. He didn't know that the trap door was under the ring, and he kept taking bumps on it. Broke his back, led to lots of pain drugs and ultimately death. SO SCREW YOU WCW.

Part 3 of 3 (Final)
Fall Brawl 09/13/1998; Winston-Salem, NC: Lawrence Joel Coliseum
WarGames Main Event Match: Diamond Dallas Page, Stevie Ray, Bret Hart, Hulk Hogan, Lex Luger, Kevin Nash, Roddy Piper, Sting, and Ultimate Warrior.
Part 1 of 3:
Part 2 of 3:
Wargames was easily the best gimmick match in wrestling.
I think Ultimate Warrior was the point where WCW/nWo jumped the shark, though I don't really remember the timeline that well. Not only was his stuff really lame (though if I was 8 I would've thought it was the greatest thing ever) but he was terrible in the ring.
LOL at Flair's short hair in this clip. Anyway, last match of WCW, Flair v. Sting.
the "yetay" destroys, i mean humps, hogan.
The Yeti appears in an attempt to destroy the "Immortal" Hulk Hogan at Halloween Havoc '95.
One of the worst gimmicks and most comedic debuts you will ever see. Why is the Yeti dressed like a mummy? He even walks like one, although mummies rarely dryhump people. Maybe Yetis do. Watch as Schiavone repeatedly mispronounces "Yeti" and Heenan describes him as being 7'8".
Major Gunns vs Ms. Hancock
In the summer of 2000, Tylene Buck takes on Stacy Keibler in a Rip Off The Clothes match which ends in a mud pool.
A future "pregnancy" angle will explain the ending.
(WCW PPV New Blood Rising, August 13, 2000 - Vancouver - Pacific Coliseum)
