WCW POWER HOUR 08.03.1991 Recap + Review – Six Man Bounty for the Mask Match, Squashes Galore

COMMENTATORS: Jim Ross & Paul E. Dangerously

Legacy of WCW continues on Jon vs. Pro Wrestling as we head into August 1991, with the first episode of Power Hour. This one features matches that have already aired in previous weeks on other programming but since we’re starting fresh on a new website I have treated them as new; future rundowns will be a lot more condensed since Power Hour tends to be mostly rehashed footage if you watch all of their other TV.
