Re: Was Bill Watts really that bad?
He was a good booker at times, but was too inflexible to deal with the changes that the 90s brought on. I'm not saying he needed to make whole sale changes, but you do have to adapt.
He also created the Ding Dongs, right ? lol
Nope. The Ding Dongs happened under Ole Anderson's booking not Bill Watts's.
As far as the OP's original question goes personally I think he was worse. Bill Watts wasn't just as a racist who only gave a half-hearted push to Rob Simmons because of a lawsuit involving a former employee but he was and still is considered by many today to be to this day the biggest bully the wrestling industry has ever had.
Based off some of the horror stories I've read and watched in various shoot interviews I think it's miracle that he's still alive today based of his run in WCW.
