List of NWA/WCW closed-circuit events and pay-per-view events

This is a list of all closed-circuit television and pay-per-view events held by World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and its predecessor Jim Crockett Promotions (JCP). From 1983–1987 the events aired live on closed-circuit TV under the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) banner. Beginning in 1987, the events started airing live on pay-per-view TV while still under the NWA banner. In November 1988 Jim Crockett Promotions sold its assets to Turner Broadcasting System, which used them to rebrand the company as World Championship Wrestling. Beginning in 1991 and lasting until 2001, the pay-per-view events were promoted under the WCW banner. In 1998 and early 1999, PPV events were promoted using the WCW/nWo brand.

In 2001, the World Wrestling Federation, now known as WWE, purchased the assets of WCW, including the video libraries of all previous NWA and WCW pay-per-views, and the ownership rights of the names of these events. To date WWE has only promoted one pay-per-view event using the name of a former WCW PPV, The Great American Bash, from 2004 until 2009. In 2012, it was rebooted as a live SmackDown special. In 2017, WWE revived the Starrcade name for a non-televised house show.

Beginning in 2014, nearly all NWA and WCW pay-per-view events were made available on the WWE Network.
