On March 14, 1999, World Championship Wrestling (WCW) held its annual Uncensored pay-per-view (PPV) from Freedom Hall in Louisville, Kentucky.
In the main event, Ric Flair defeated Hollywood Hogan in a "First Blood Barbed-wire Steel Cage Match" to win the WCW World Heavyweight Championship and permanent control of WCW, thanks to some outside interference from Arn Anderson and his tire iron of justice.
You know, because well, nothing warrants blood, barbed-wire and steel more than a couple of 80's headliners whose combined age passes the century mark. And there is no way in hell a Hogan match was ending without at least four different controversial finishes.
What's funny, is the headliner was designed to "determine the future of WCW," and had anyone known it was going to crash and burn just two years later, Flair probably would have jobbed to Hulkster just to let the blood be on his hands.
Anyway, WCW Uncensored for your viewing pleasure below, in four parts:
Part 1 (47:05):
Part 2 (35:53):
Part 3 (44:30):
Part 4 (34:30):
