Wrestle Wednesday: Psicosis vs. Blitzkrieg vs. Juventud Guerrera vs. Rey Mysterio, Jr. – WCW Monday Nitro (4/19/99)

I hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving Weekend and turkey stuffing, gob gobbling, and itis naps. Now that we’re head-first into the Christmas spirit of shopping and giving, it’s only right that I began delivering the goods here once again for Wrestle Wednesday.

This week’s edition features a moment in time where I originally got into wrestling, in particular WCW. I remember when the company was on the rise as the dominant force of the Monday Night Wars due to the reign of the nWo, another unique feature separated the southern-based, Turner-owned promotion from its rivals up North: The Cruiserweight Division.

It’s no secret that Rey Mysterio is among one of my all-time favorite wrestlers and his time as the face of an entire division which featured fast-paced, high-flying maneuvers mixed with Lucha Libre and Japanese Puroresu style made for a 9-year-old me at the time. Simultaneously, there was a young worker featured here that blew me away for the brief time he was in WCW, then disappeared into obscurity. That man was Jeremiah Ross AKA Blitzkrieg.

One can only wonder if Blitzkrieg continued his wrestling career in the 2000s if he’ll succeed WWE or even be a household name in the Indies or TNA. Dude was absolutely ahead of his time pertaining to lightweight American workers of the late 90s, patterning his style and look after The Great Sasuke.

This match from from April 19, 1999 edition of Nitro served his one of my favorite matches from that year. There wasn’t too much of a story to it other than these guys doing awesome spots for 20 minutes and making it work.

Every Friday is Black Friday.

The Black Opera releases a RAW new track “Black Friday” with the announcement of their new Genesis Logo Hoody [theblackopera.bigcartel.com] via TBOHQ on Black Friday. “Black Friday” is produced by the multi-talented Black Spade of Hawthorne Headhunters. This neo-nostalgic track is reminiscent of the classic ‘Timbos and hoodies’ era, back when Wu-Tang Clan was nothing to fuck with. [They still ain't. And neither is TBO.]
