The Best of OSW’s WCW Reviews

osw-review-bannerThe long international nightmare is finally over (unlikely at 11:40 PM EST). The US Presidential Election wrapped up last night / this morning (probably) and there is an elected 45th President of the United States. I’m writing this likely needing to move from Canada to Tierra Del Fuego or South Africa or New Zealand or somewhere that isn’t greatly impacted by US politics. So I think we all need a laugh today.

To help us get over the last year-and-a-half of pain and suffering of a Presidential campaign and the next four years of a Presidential term that will cause the same, I think we should call on our old friends at Old School Wrestling Review. The lads are in the middle of a WCW series about the early Hogan vs. the Dungeon of Doom days so let’s look at their best WCW reviews.

The Best of OSW’s Film Reviews

osw-review-bannerThe lads over at OSW Review aren’t just about reviewing classic wrestling pay-per-views and events. If fact, they talk about a lot more than wrestling.

For today’s look at the best of the interweb, we look at five of the best movie reviews by the gang at OSW Review.

The Best of OSW Review

As we are wont to do in these parts, today, we’re taking a look at another website in our Best of the Interweb series. This time, it’s a look at the labour of love of three Irishmen called OSW Review. OSW is the Old School Wrestling Review in which three friends (Jay, V1 and Mr. OOC [and, at the beginning, Neo]) look back at classic pay-per-views with their own unique spin mixing in behind the scenes stories, little known anecdotes and their trademark humour. If you started listening to a wrestling podcast in the last four years, chances are that OSW inspired it.

Today, we take a look at the best OSW Review episodes of the Hulkamania era.

The OSW Review ECW Playlist

osw-review-ecw-bannerI’ve never made it a secret that I’m a big fan of the OSW Review podcast. It features three self-described racist Irishmen, Jay, Steve (V1) and Steve (Mr. OOC), as the chronologically critique wrestling storylines pay-per-view by pay-per-view.

Having looked at the Hulkamania era of WWF and the David Arquette era in WCW, the boys’ most recent chronological critique looks at the rise, fall, rebirth and subsequent final death of ECW and WWECW. What was supposed to be a four-part ECW retrospective ended up becoming a six-part ECW saga.

Since the final part of OSW’s ECW saga drops today, you can catch up with the first five parts provided that you can spare nine hours to catch up on all five episodes.
