I've been watching JCP World Championship Wrestling episodically on the network for a while now and always enjoy the mixture of squash matches and interviews along with the occasional competitive match. 

The September 12th 1987 episode though truly is a hidden gem well worth seeking out. 

Nikita Koloff v Bobby Eaton

Arn Anderson v Barry Windham

The first time Sting is seen on WCW

Absolutely fantastic stuff! 


Thought this would be a good thread for people to share hidden gems be it full shows or matches, recent or historic

JCP World Championship Wrestling 5th December 1987

Another great show away from the studio this time as all matches/interviews take place from the Miami Beach Convention Centre. Highlights include:

Barry Windham v Larry Zbysco, Ric Flair v Michael Hayes, Barbarian and Warlord as a team as well as great interviews by Sting, Luger, Roadwarriors and Tully & Arn..

Great way to spend 90 mins!

JCP World Championship Wrestling 26th December 1987

Another fantastic show filmed in Raleigh, NC.  Feature match is Midnight Express v The Super Powers (Dusty Rhodes & Nikita Koloff) in a great match that I'm sure was their standard house show match but it was great to see.  The crowd is fantastic all night, totally in to everything and not a cringy chant in sight! 

Features matches with Ron Garvin and Mighty Wilbur, Road Warriors, Sting, Michael Hayes, Dr Death, Eddie Gilbert and highlights from the evenings main event, a Bunkhouse Stampede.

Boxing Day 1987  had a top wrestling show on TBS.

I'm watching episodically on the network and watching ppvs and clashes as they fit in. The episodes run up to around GAB 89 although it'll be a while until I get there as just starting May 88. I'm hoping that by the time I get there the network has uploaded some more content to fill the gap between 1989 when JCP ends and 1992 when Saturday Night started!

"WCW All Nighter" from 1995 has a brilliant match between Steve Austin vs Ricky Steamboat from a "Clash of the Champions in 1994" event. It's bloody amazing. It's right at the start. Might have been Steamboat's last WCW match.

Dunno how hidden it is but just watched Great American Bash 1989, decent undercard, really good Wargames match and a classic Funk/Flair main event. well worth checking out.

Plus it has the dynamic dudes on the undercard who are always hilarious, for the wrong reasons.

I've got that on a really shonky VHS somewhere. It's not a bad show. The two ring battle royal is a thing. The Sting/Muta/Flair/Funk stuff is interesting.

Tell you whats a Hidden Gem. Austin v Mankind on Raw the night after 'Its Time' in December 96. Vince bizarrely builds it as a 'Tough Man' contest for some reason, and to be fair he's probably correct. Anyway, these two beat the shit out of each other for a good 15 minutes, it's starts off a little low key, but by the halfway mark the crowd are into it and they know its something special.

These two men are out to prove a point. They both got the shaft from WCW in the past year or so and they want to put on a show for the few lads that are actually watching Raw in December 96.

It's a great match and is the blueprint for the Austin v Dude matches 18 months later.
