WCW's Lasting Legacy
This week in 2001, the Monday Night War came to an end as WCW was officially sold to the McMahon family. However, the legacy that World Championship Wrestling left is still being felt today in the current landscape of sports-entertainment. Today on WWE Flashback Friday, we’re showcasing WCW events that feature Superstars seen on WWE programming in the past year. Do you remember the early careers of Chris Jericho, Big Show and Paul Heyman? Tune in as we honor the memories and matches from a promotion whose impact is still being felt 17 years after its closing.
