WCW PPV Events History

WCW PPV Events

Following on from its separation from the National Wrestling Alliance in the early 1990s and Jim Crockett Promotions, World Championship Wrestling began promoting their own PPV events. Prior to 1991, there were a number of cross-promotion NWA/WCW events but from 1991 were simply known as WCW Events. These events began with WrestleWar 1991, and continued until March 2001 with Greed which was a mere eight days before the final episode of WCW Nitro and the closure of WCW. Arguably, one of the biggest successes from throughout this time was Starrcade 1997 whilst Halloween Havoc 1998 can be seen as the start of the end.
