Re: WCW 2002: The Return
WWF has recently let contracts slide on a couple of their superstars. There is no word yet who they are, but rumours are circulating that WCW may attempt to pick these wrestlers up if they haven't already done so.
WCW Nitro returned this past week with an impressive viewership of 3.2 Million fans tuning in. Although WWF still beat WCW in the ratings the feeling is that WCW made a wise decision to wait a few months before returning to television. The most watched segment was the World Heavyweight Championship Main Event between Scott Steiner and Kevin Nash. Over 3.6 Million fans tuned in for the main event. WCW executives are happy with the momentum they built up.
Now that the ECW Invasion is over in WWF, many feel that Vince McMahon dropped the ball by letting Rob Van Dam and Rhino go. WWF released them back in October before the invasion was over.
WWF is questioning whether or not they should keep the Unified ECWWF on Chris Benoit until Wrestlemania or if they should have him drop the title to The Rock at the Royal Rumble. Many thought Chris Jericho would have the World Title, but Jericho has refused to sign a new contract with WWF.
WCW is considering having Hollywood Hogan and Scott Steiner fight for the World Heavyweight Championship, playing off the fact that Hogan didn't lose the belt at the Bash at the Beach 2000, His last appearance with the company. No word on whether they would push for that to happen at Superbrawl or wait on it.
