Stan Hansen took one look at these vignettes and decided to bail on WCW and go to All Japan. Can you guess why?

Alas the world will never know why they wanted to find Stan Hansen.

To me, the idea behind the skits isn’t really all that bad- they’re just silly nonsense.

What makes them so unbearable is how long and boring they are! They ate up valuable TV time that could have been used to feature… oh, I don’t know… wrestling!

And like you said, we got no payoff because Stan never showed up to resolve the storyline.

Still, this is way more entertaining than that remake of Wild Wild West with Will Smith.

    Was this before, or after, Cactus Jack went missing?

    • Scrooge McSuck says:

      Spring/Summer of ’91, so well before the Cactus Amnesia angle.

        Lost In Cleveland was a double whammy of crap – an amnesia angle AND a search for angle – to guaranteed producers of crap. I think WC need to do an article of angles that end in crap i.e. dancing (MOM, PN News, Alex Wright), religion (Reverend D-Von, Shawn Michaels tag team partner God), faeces (Davey Boy Smith and the dog poo, Big Show has the squirts), Nipple H (a lot), pregnancy (Mae Young’s hand, Terri Runnels, Nipple H’s fake pregnancy) and searching for someone (Desperados, Lost in Cleveland, Search for Shawn Michaels)… Search for Shawn Michaels is long overdue an induction…

    I remember reading that Stan wanted nothing to do with this at all, and it prompted his decision to remain in Japan, never wrestling in the US again. Was it in Foley’s first book?

    What makes this crap is… they’re absolutely pointless. Led to nothing, meant nothing.

    Why would you produce and air these, unless you had Hansen all locked up, contractually?

    And he was so NOT over during his previous run in WCW, you have to wonder why they went to such lengths to promote his return…

    • "The Big Cheese" Paul Kraft says:

      Well, common sense was often in short supply around the WCW booking room throughout the years…

  3. Thomas Moffatt says:

    Will the Search For Shawn Michaels ever be inducted? That was pretty awful…

  4. patricko says:

    I don’t recall for sure, but can assume that this steaming pile was courtesy of Dusty Rhodes while he was head booker?

    Glad he’s not doing that any longer.

    After watching this, I got a strange hankerin’ to go lookin’ for Dirty Dutch Mantell…

  6. David Thompson says:

    Really bad acting. The only good thing is that it was taped at “Ghost Town in the Sky,” in Maggie Valley, NC. I loved that place. The “Marshall” is actually the guy that worked there as the Marshall. Memories.

  7. John C says:

    WE THE DESPERADOS!!!!!!!!! All that effort and you know WCW would have just used them as a jobber tag team after a couple of months anyways. If they went to the future they could have searched for The Desperado Joe Gomez . License to print…nothing.

  8. Mister Forth says:

    First thing, gotta love Dutch’s ability to look good doing anything. Second, I laughed at how the eyepatch switched eyes.
