Re: Was Bill Watts really that bad?

I remember hearing that Watts made a racist remark in an interview prior to booking in WCW, tried to cover his tracks by giving Simmons the belt but when Hank Aaron found out about the interview, he pushed for Watts to be removed.

Watts putting over black wrestlers as stars proves that he is smart. With a black champion, you can attract a black audience, which in turn equals bigger profit for the company. But, I've often heard that he was the typical old school, southern bigot.
