Re: Wrestlers who ruined their own legacy
It looked like Hulk's career should've ended in 1992, but after a couple of years in the doldrums (crappy hollywood movies, a bizarre 1993 WWF run and an awkward first year in WCW) he resurrected and reinvented himself brilliantly. I think, though, that he should've retired at the end of the nWo angle, perhaps with an epic face turn and huge victory over them. Everything he has done since has pissed on the Hulkamania Legacy; his subsequent WWF runs have been diminishing returns, the bloated Hulkamania tour is more of a carnival sideshow than wrestling act, his TV show exposed his entire family as a vapid bunch of c u n t s, and his TNA stuff has been laughable. The guy took the greatest career in wrestling and slowly sniffed it up his nose. The guy is a joke, now.
Another nWo member: if Scott Hall had kept his shit together and dealt with his demons, rather than letting them fester, he could still be working and would be on his way to a Hall of Fame Career. These days he's a wreck, but if he was physically well enough (and more reliable) he could be playing a Kevin Nash type role (although better, obviously) and, due to his beloved Razor Ramon gimmick as well as his nWo candidacy, would make him a bona fide legend.
