The Radicalz - RAW Magazine [April 2000]
On January 31st, 2000, one of wrestling’s biggest storylines went down as four prominent members of World Championship Wrestling joined together to defect to their company’s rival, the World Wrestling Federation. The idea of Eddie Guerrero, Dean Malenko, Chris Benoit, and Perry Saturn turning their backs on a company that largely helped make them all known to the American wrestling audience was shocking enough, but the fact that Benoit had held the WCW World Heavyweight Championship title a mere two weeks prior to their surprise WWF debut created an instant buzz around fans and people inside the wrestling industry. Surprise debuts of superstars from other organizations were one thing, but no one had ever seen a fully-unified walk out like this before.
Today will be non-stop posts about these four men, the Radicalz of the WWF.
