It’s that time of the month again. You know the routine; you eagerly await details on the next batch of classic content and we frustrate you all by staying silent while we make sure our information is correct. Of course, we’re now able to spill the beans (and have done so in the title!) We can confirm that the final episodes of WCW Thunder are set for release on the WWE Network this coming Monday, November 18th. We can also confirm (though it’s admittedly to be expected) that the uploads continue where they last left off, November 15, 2000.

As our regular readers will know, the history of WCW Thunder on the WWE Network has been both a little bizarre and drawn out. Way back in September 2017, PWInsider reported that WCW Thunder was set to make its full debut later that month. When the show didn’t materialize, further digging by Mike Johnson suggested that an ongoing royalties case was behind the delay. The floodgates finally opened in March of last year, with 77 episodes added in bulk. Unfortunately, proceedings slowed to a crawl from there, with blocks of 20 episodes spread out through 2019, with the most recent in September. Now though, however, we appear to be in the home stretch, with only 18 episodes needed to tie up WCW’s second major series of the pro wrestling war. As always, we’ll provide a full listing later in the week to confirm whether or not the show will be fully completed.

As a final reminder, more episodes of WCW Thunder will be added to the WWE Network on Monday, November 18th.

With Survivor Series a little over a week away, it makes sense that the WWE Network’s Hidden Gems spotlight would finally begin to focus in on the last “big 4” pay-per-view of the year. And with that in mind, it makes sense for what is steadily becoming a modern tradition to continue as well; the release of corresponding TV hype specials to the streaming service. After being graced by a Sunday Night Slam special for SummerSlam 1994 earlier this year, we’re now set to receive the followup of the same name for Survivor Series 1994, which taped on November 8, 1994 at the Fernwood Resort & Country Club in Pennsylvania but didn’t air until the 20th, just 3 days before the PPV. While the August show was 2-hours long, the runtime was cut in November as the era of standalone TV “spectaculars” began to run its course.

We can confirm the following matches for Sunday Night Slam: November 1994 with a commentary team of Stan Lane and Gorilla Monsoon:

The Heavenly Bodies (Jimmy del Ray & Tom Prichard) (w/Jim Cornette) vs. The Smoking Gunns (Bart Gunn & Billy Gunn)
John Chrystal vs. Yokozuna
Owen Hart vs. The British Bulldog

Also of note for the purists out there is that the video has a perfectly healthy runtime of 44:58 and zero significant edits have been made to the presentation. Meaning that both a Bob Backlund vs. Bret Hart recap and a Survivor Series Report segment with Todd Pettingill are completely intact. Of course, a lack of tampering should always be the standard but confirmation is always good to have.

As always, we wrap up with WWE’s official description:

Sunday Night Slam: November 1994 [Duration: 00:44:58]
Yokozuna, The British Bulldog, The Smoking Gunns and more compete in exciting matches just days before Survivor Series 1994.

“Sunday Night Slam: November 1994” is set to arrive on the WWE Network tomorrow (Thursday, November 14, 2019) in the “WWE Hidden Gems” category of the main “In-Ring” section.

I’m really glad that Thunder will finally be done so the Network can release older stuff. Also hoping they do the 12 days of hidden gems this year too.

They'll find something else to avoid the older stuff. I mean, did they catch up on Main Event? If the plan is to only add new categories when the current ones are done, it could be a long time yet.

They still have old categories to fill, such as WWE All Star Wrestling and even WWE Old School.  Whether they fill them or not, who knows.

That last episode of Thunder was really odd because they knew it was the final episode and billed it throughout as the "season finale", but never spelled out to people that it was truly the end of the line with only the final Nitro and a pair of World Wide Wrestling episodes to go. They brought on AJ Styles and Air Paris with a Top Gun gimmick and seemed to setting the stage for future feuds that would never come, like Lance Storm and Mike Awesome vs. Chuck Palumbo and Sean O'Haire. A fan that just watched TV, but didn't keep up with the online scene to know would never have realized what was happening.

IIRC, when the last episode of Thunder aired they still thought Bischoff and Fusient was buying the company and rebooting it.  Things changed very quickly from Thursday to Monday.

Yeah - Bischoff went around Turner to find info from people that he trusted, and they said that the minute AOL sells off WCW, they were going to cancel all wrestling across their platforms.  At that point, Bischoff would own nothing more than a video catalog and a lot of wrestler contracts with no TV deal.  Made the investment pointless.  Vince stepping in to buy WCW was, as we saw, mostly a deal for their catalog because a good majority of the contracts that he took on were cheap deals with (mostly) younger talent.  Guys like DDP, Flair, Steiner, and famously Goldberg came on much later after their Turner contracts either ran out or they accepted the buyout.  I believe the nWo guys were all nearing either the end of their deal - or feared by being out of the game too long at their age that they'd not have much on their side as far as negotiating with Vince.  Because Hall, Nash, and Hogan came in by the lead in to WM 18, which really was only ten months or so after they integrated the WCW guys.

I'll add this clarification to Superstar's and srossi's posts.

WCW programming had been cancelled by Turner Broadcasting. before the Greed PPV on 3/18/01 happened in Jacksonville and the live Nitro/Thunder taping on 3/19/01 happened in Gainesville at the University of Florida. Eric Bischoff and Fusient Media made several calls to try to find some sort of TV home for WCW, but nothing came of it. By the time those two cards happened, it was generally assumed that no one would air WCW and on that basis Fusient Media would not be taking over.

On the second to last Nitro, Eric Bischoff called in and made some cryptic comments about WCW's future. If you knew what was going on, you knew he was saying it was over. He and Fusient had some operational control over WCW in the lead up to the planned sale and on the show Bischoff invited any WCW stars from the past, or from the present who were not on TV, to come to the final Nitro the next week, basically saying they should put on a show to remember for what was called the season finale. Between that Nitro and the final one, the WWF stepped in and WCW had a new life of sorts, but as of the Gainesville taping, it was one more show and turn off the lights.

The contracts the WWE took on were of 24 mostly younger guys who had contracts with review cycles that allowed the WWF to cancel them and replace them with WWF style deals. Those wrestlers were Lance Storm, Mike Awesome, Stacy Keibler, Chavo Guerrero Jr., Hugh Morrus, Lash LaRoux, The Wall, Evan Karagias, Shane Helms, Shannon Moore, Kaz Hayashi, Jimmy Yang, Jamie Noble, Mike Sanders, Shawn Stasiak, Chuck Palumbo, Sean O'Haire, Mark Jindrak, Johnny The Bull, Reno, Kwee Wee, Elix Skipper, Kid Romeo, and Jason Jett (EZ Money in ECW).

The WWE then signed Diamond Dallas Page, Booker T, Chris Kanyon, and Billy Kidman who took buyouts of their WCW deals. Buff Bagwell's WCW contract expired on its own about a month after the promotion closed. Torrie Wilson was a free agent after getting released in early 2001 as part of a cost cutting move.

Kevin Nash was in the final year of a contract that paid him close to $1,600,000 and decided he'd wait until it expired in late 2001 in order to collect every dime. His theory was that it wasn't a wise move to arrive with everyone from WCW at once. He waited instead for early 2002, believing that by then the WWE would want someone new who could enter the main event scene. This was yet another smart of his because his decision to wait ensured him a huge downside guarantee when he arrived in early 2002 (I think for $750,000) but with the chance to earn much more because business was still great, he'd get a cut of the NWO money, and he'd be in a main event spot.

We’re lucky enough to have the latest Hidden Gems information early for you this week and as you can tell by the title alone, this has taken what would be a common television special into altogether more interesting territory. How exactly? By adding more than an hour beyond the original runtime!
In the past, WWE has shied away from releasing any Survivor Series Showdown or SummerSlam Spectacular specials before 1993 via Hidden Gems. This was always presumed to be because they very openly used the Prime Time Wrestling branding and thus would be released as classic content within that series. Well, as stated above, the company has spiced this one up considerably so that it isn’t merely “as seen on TV”. Of course, we do initially have Survivor Series Showdown 1992, as it aired with the following card:
Repo Man vs. TatankaMarty Jannetty vs. The Brooklyn BrawlerKamala (w/Harvey Wippleman & Kim Chee) vs. Red TylerEarthquake vs. Irwin R. Schyster (w/Jimmy Hart)Barry Horowitz vs. The Big Boss ManRed Fox & Royce Royal vs. The Headshrinkers (Fatu & Samu) (w/Afa)
But then, the fun truly begins after that ending copyright notice, with over an hour of the following “dark footage”:
Nailz vs. Big Boss ManA Jimmy Garvin interview with Mean GeneWWF Championship: The Mountie vs. Bret Hart ©Virgil vs. Bam Bam BigelowRazor Ramon vs. “Macho Man” Randy SavageWWF Championship: Papa Shango vs. Bret Hart ©Nailz vs. Ultimate Warrior
Yes, both Nailz and Bret have 2 matches and yes, the raw footage timestamp confirms that all of this happened after the show. Speaking of raw footage, we can confirm that none of the post-TV footage has commentary. To wrap things up here is WWE’s official description:
WWE 11/22/1992 – Survivor Series Showdown 1992 [Duration 02:35:23]Battle lines are drawn as The Undertaker, Ric Flair, Bret Hart and others prepare for Survivor Series. Plus, watch bonus event footage.

Unless I am wrong, the Jimmy Garvin stuff never aired anywhere before. It was a tryout, but he didn't come in. I am not sure what the WWE's side of it would be, but I think he said it would have involved him taking on a new name and he didn't want to effectively start over after having made his name as Jimmy Garvin. He was also mentally ready to retire and become an airline pilot, so he decided it was time to make that switch. In his own words, he cut his long hair short and shaved off his beard and mustache. Then he went to the supermarket and not a sole recognized him. It felt liberating and was proof to him that he was making the right move to a new career.
