So, I suppose Flair, Giant Baba, Dusty Rhodes in the south, Kerry Von Erich in Texas, Tatsumi Fujinami, Masa Chono, Great Muta, Lex Luger & Goldberg aren't big names in the wrestling business and globally.

I suppose that Texas Stadium, the Greensboro Coliseum, which has tons of wrestling history, Tokyo Dome, the Georgia Dome, the Super Dome and the Cow Palace aren't big wrestling videos.

Majority of the previously mentioned buildings are far bigger and have had higher attendance then most of the WWE's big, non dome arenas.

I understand that we agree to disagree but most of the guys who held the WCW/NWA Title are HUGE around the world and the main areas the belt was defended in where the hot beds of professional wrestling for decades. But once Hogan and the ex WWF guys came, it kind of lost it's prestige.
