With the WWF attracting a wider age demographic during the early 90s, WCW felt they had to begin appealing to a more youthful audience. The WWF had characters such as Hulk Hogan and The Ultimate Warrior; larger than life characters who looked like they were ripped straight from a comic book. WCW, in many ways, had appealed to an older demographic during the 80s with a more "no nonsense" style of professional wrestling. At Captial Combat 1990 however, WCW would get a little whacky when RoboCop made an appearance. Yes, RoboCop in WCW.
Sting had joined the Four Horsemen in late 1989 but when the Stinger wouldn't give up his title shot against Ric Flair, he was ejected from the group. Sting also suffered an injury that would keep him on the shelf for a little while.. so backup was needed. A few phone calls from the heads of Turner Entertainment resulted in RoboCop coming to save Sting at the Captial Combat show. This video covers RoboCop's appearance on this WCW PPV event.

    " No blowing up Ole Anderson" LOLOLOLOL great Video as always. In all seriousness that was great storytelling and booking between Flair, Sting, Funk and Muta. And then mixing a face Sting in with a heel Horsemen group. great until RoboCop shows up lol.

    Stupid though it was, I get why WCW would do this. A massive Hollywood movie icon would come to their show. Potentially cool and buzzworthy, even if the idea of a robot doing something in wrestling was physically ridiculous. But for the movie producers, what's to be gained? Your character goes on the second class wrestling show in America and looks useless and immobile. Luckily for them, almost no one saw this 😅

I actually thought looking at the title we were about to be entertained by another gaff by Ted Turner and Eric Bischoff in 1998. Turns out it even predates the Monday Night War by some years.

    These idiots did not know why the WWF was successful and they mimicked the worst parts in idiotic fashion. This junk and the shock master. Just morons who didn't understand how that cartoon wrestling was selling.....the reason it sold was a reason they couldn't see because it was an indictment on their fortitude....the WWF only sold cause Vince McMahon had balls and wasn't a loser who agreed to a weak gentleman's agreement. He went balls to the walls to take a national stake. These losers were all trying to squat on their territories to keep others out. That's weak and shows a lack of tenacity. It's the mark of losers who weren't able to make it and just squatted on what they had. They were protecting their weaknesses while Mr. McMahon went to thrive and the universe awarded him. It's as complicated but straight forward as that...these morons couldn't admit they were wussies and deluded themselves stuff like this was why he was, and actually that's why wrestling was almost dead until the NWO angle saved it. The most visible product was one that was off putting to kayfabe entrenched wrestling fans. Imagine thinking the Junkyard Dog was blinded and couldn't see his daughter be born and then you a clown wrestling a repo man in a domino mask like it was Halloween. Yeah, one or 2 times you will have to watch it but eventually you will feel like your intelligence has been insulted for decades. In less than ten years that idiotic type of wrestling almost killed a thriving business and those wussies were helping kill their business by copying it.

    RoboCop was a dumb movie, anyway. My dad took me to see it because he was such a Peter Weller fan, and I think he's a lousy actor! I had to put up with my dad watching Buckaroo Banzai over-and-over again and I had endure the dreadful, deadpan "I'm not acting" school of acting Weller comes from, and I'm sorry---give me Willaim Shatner's "over-acting" over that garbage, anyday!
