Episode 38: Spring Stampede 1994 Saddle up, pardners! It's time for a new series! In 1994, WCW decided the absolute best location to host their new, cowboy-themed show, Spring Stampede, was of course...Illinois? Sure, that sounds logical. It also features precisely zero Bunkhouse Stampedes, though we're actually rather thankful for that one. So what does it have? The Boss boldly battles Vader and copyright law! Dustin Rhodes and Bunkhouse Buck fistfight to prove which is better, Texas or Tennessee...in Illinois. Best pals Ric Flair and Ricky Steamboat battle it out in a reignition of their legendary feud. For all this, plus our thoughts on the latest Michael Buffer fashion, let's go to the ring!

Episode 39: Spring Stampede 1997 Yeehaw! Spring Stampede may have managed to skip the entire WCW Hulkamania era, but now it's back - landing smack in the middle of the nWo angle! Has the time off hurt the series, or can it come roaring back just as strong as in its first showing? One person who certainly benefitted from the two year gap is Diamond Dallas Page, who has gone from a barely-mentioned opening match performer to a main eventer in the intervening time. Also: Who will win a (very very eventual) title shot against World Champ Hollywood Hogan? Can Prince Iaukea retain his TV title against Steven Regal? Will the commentators even pay attention to Madusa vs. Akira Hokuto? For all this, plus one of the most infamous promo flubs of all time, let's go to the ring!

Episode 40: Spring Stampede 1998 It's Spring Stampede 1998, and there's trouble down at the nWo-K Corral, brother! Hogan and Nash must face Piper and the Giant in a Baseball Bat on a Pole match...but should the two nWo members fear each other more than their opponents? Can Prince Iaukea avenge his defeated mentor, Dean Malenko? Can Saturn best the rising phenomenon, Goldberg? (Uh...no.) Just how much of the arena will remain after DDP and Raven do battle? For all this, plus a wrestler debut Al has long awaited, let's go to the ring!

Episode 41: Spring Stampede 1999 The Spring Stampede series continues...and so too does the rise of Diamond Dallas Page, who has his biggest opportunity yet - a shot at the World Heavyweight Championship. Can he dethrone the ever-so-slightly power-mad Ric Flair? Also: Can Goldberg get his revenge on Kevin Nash? Can Konnan even hope to stand against the raw might of...Disco Inferno? And WCW's booked every single lower card title to be occupied by only two matches...that's not weird at all, right? For all this and more, let's go to the ring!

Episode 42: Spring Stampede 2000 The stagecoach keeps on rolling, but the end of the trail approaches...as WCW Spring Stampede 2000 looms. Ironically, the final Spring Stampede brings a new beginning for WCW as they establish all new champions in a whole slew of tournaments. Plus...Norman Smiley vs. Terry Funk, because we love that pairing so much. DDP vs. Jeff Jarrett for the World Title...and revenge. And, at least seven quintillion cruiserweights pile into the ring for a supposed six-man match! For all this and more...let's go to the ring!
