I basically watched the WCCW because on occasion, someone currently in the WWF would wrestle there, so that was neat to see.
The first thing that I learned was that there was no longer the AWA, there was no longer the WCCW, there was no longer an interest in women's wrestling, and there was this new federation called the WCW, that I would learn that no other than Ted Turner owned it.
A lot changed, most of the people that I saw when I turned on the TV that night (which was Memorial Day '96...Scott Hall's first apearance back in WCW) was that all the people I had watched in the WWF were in WCW.
