John Pollock and Wai Ting review WCW World War 3 (1995) featuring a 60-Man Battle Royal for the vacant WCW Heavyweight Championship.

Merely weeks removed from WCW Nitro’s debut, this PPV also featured an infamous promo involving Hulk Hogan calling out Dave Meltzer’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter over reports of a Randy Savage arm injury, Ric Flair vs. Sting, an inter-promotional battle between joshi puroresu legends, a Taped First Challenge, and The YETI.

This edition of the Rewind-A-Wai is presented by Espresso Executive Producer, Ryan Charkow.
