Wrestling fans are in for a treat next week, as Vice TV will air the first episode of the Who Killed WCW docuseries. The project, executive produced by Hollywood megastar Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and the creators of Dark Side Of The Ring, aims to share a new perspective on the rise and fall of WCW. The series will air on June 4 and will have four episodes.

 The clip may be fascinating to fans as the cast touches on how the infamous July 29, 1996, episode that featured NWO assaulting talent backstage came together. One of the highlights from the sneak peek was Nash breaking down the spot where he launched Rey Mysterio like a lawn dart against a trailer. 

Nash reveals that Mysterio wanted the charismatic giant to throw him into the window. However, ‘Big Sexy’ nixed the idea, as he was worried that launching him into the window could’ve been fatal. It’s unclear if Mysterio is involved in the show to share his side of the story. That said, it is information that longtime wrestling fans may not have heard. 

If the upcoming docuseries can share new information and perspectives not heard before, Who Killed WCW could be very exciting.
