Several months ago, several intrepid Twitter users embarked on a journey to watch the Forgotten WrestleMania, WrestleMania 2, at a coordinated time with me in order to tweet their thoughts in time with the show. The concept was a mild success in terms of turnout, but a massive success in terms of the people who participated and the tweets they sprung forth during the time allotted. Now, four months later, the second installment shall be announced. I am pleased to announce the return of The Wrestling Blog Retro Live Tweet Series. This installment will happen on Wednesday, July 23 at 8 PM Eastern Daylight Time, and it will be open to anyone who has a way to view the event in question and has a Twitter account. This time, those who choose to journey into greatness with the crew of live-tweeting snarky assholes will travel back in time to a more recent epoch and into a different company, as the event in question will be...

WCW Sin.

Dying-days WCW was a strange creature. Booking regimes came and went with little to no staying power, and thus the stories and week-to-week providence of Nitro made about as much sense as every M. Night Shyamalan movie after Unbreakable. It is regarded as one of the absolute worst stretches for a promotion in history, and yet within the piles of shit grew some promising sprouts in terms of in-ring work. Not every match or wrestler was reputed to be good, but enough quality was supposed to be happening that makes the dying days of the company worth checking out. And checking it out is what I and the people who shall join me next Wednesday shall do. Maskless Rey Mysterio will be there! Bill DeMott with a sex-pun for a name will compete. Meng and Terry Funk will be in the SAME GODDAMN MATCH! While I'm not hopeful that any main event that features Sid, Jeff Jarrett, Scott Steiner, and Road Warrior Animal will be anything less than a trainwreck, I am willing to give the show on the whole a chance. Will you? Join me in eight days on Twitter and via the WWE Network (or by other means if you do not have it/it's not available to you yet).
