Re: Why Didn't this guy work?
He was on massive money, but due to being shit, no one wanted to work with him. Eventually the office realised this and pushed people who were more talented.
Incorrect. He worked with Undertaker, had a lengthy program with HHH and had a classic with Austin at KOTR 96.
Problem was, he fucked his knee up at the start of 1997, had to relinquish the IC Title and was never the same. WWE didn't really care to do anything with him, as unlike 1996 when he came in, they were stacked with talent, who were bigger attractions.
Can't remember the specifics but I vividly remember Mero quitting because of an angle he found offensive (something about an affair) but I'm thinking it might have been WCW.
But seriously, check out his feud with HHH or KOTR 96 with Austin. Mero was far from shit. He really did turn to shit after fucking up his knee and the whole Brawl For All and boxer gimmick.
