Reading the story about Bart Gunn got me thinking about Dr. Death. I remember him in the Varsity Club whenever he was in the U.S. but his first big appearance I can remember was the NWA tag tournament.
Now this was in the WCW era. So this tournament was there more or less just to fill time and make people forget about Flair. But it was made up of 16 "international" teams. Pretty much all the foreign teams were first round jobbers except I think the Mexican team. But I clearly remember the Japanese team of Dr. Death and Terry Gordy. Death and Gordy were ranked #4 and were pissed off about not being #1 which was the Steiners. So on a Clash Death and Gordy made quick work of their jobbers and then beat up the Steiner's jobbers. This was in the stupid Steiner phase so the Steiners faced Death and Gordy and lost. The Steiners then lost the WCW titles to Death and Gordy who also won the NWA belts.
But then things got weird. So far there is the evil menace taking on the young clean cut Americans nothing really new. But for some reason Gordy and Death lost their belts to Dustin Rhodes and Barry Windham who lost the belts to Steamboat and Douglass. Now Death and Gordy were supposed to have a rematch against one of the above teams I can't remember which. Gordy got fired for some reason and Dr. Death picked a partner who ironically was Stunning Steve. Austin then quickly formed the Hollywood Blondes and won the titles with Pillman.
My questions are these. Was WCW trying to get the belts of the Steiners because they were going to WWF soon? Why make such a big deal out of Death and Gordy and only have them keep the belts for about a month? Why was Gordy fired and Dr. Death disapeared so quickly?
This was the first on T.V. proof of how fucked up WCW was for me. Weird plots that didn't make sense and didn't follow through. Pimping well, not new talent but returning talent and then firing them out of the blue. Hot shotting the title 3 times without setting up a feud. Until the Blondes won the title and Steamboat and Douglass tried to regain them by dressing up as Luchadores no one seemed to care that they lost the damn belts.



I just have 13 words for you. How much wood would a woodchuch chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

I can think of two reasons the Miracle Violence Connection were dropped so quickly.

1) Terry Gordy's fondness for pharmaceuticals. Gordy's overdose the next year killed his wrestling career, and technically killed him as well for a very short time.

2) Priorities. Those who worked for Shohei "Giant" Baba were INTENSELY loyal to Baba, and prioritized him over everybody else.

Whenever they're in the California area, they tend to bring out some pretty good shows, so what better way to pop a rating than bringing out Rocky to drop a few elbows and say his lines?
