One glance at the erratic runtimes throughout the list may lead to very understandable paranoia regarding extensive editing. However, there’s very little to worry about. Even when Saturday Night was WCW’s flagship, it was regularly altered in length as required by the surrounding schedule. Meaning that the show ran for between every increment of 60 minutes and 2.5 hours. All of these episodes are at worst a minute or two away from their original TV airing totals, and so may have had some minor tweaks (such as the removal of old sponsorships or TBS promotions) done to them.

Also, the description for the 03/06/1993 episode may seem familiar. That’s because it was copied directly from a hidden gem that aired on it. We’ll see whether this will be changed before release.

As a final reminder, the above episodes of WCW Saturday Night will be released tomorrow, Monday, August 19th and made available within the In-Ring section.
