Re: British Bulldog's Return In 99
Simply put, they did not know what to do with him. He was nowhere fit in AE as the original BB and he can't be taken out of it for he was popular as the BB. He was not excellent on mic enough to stand up to Austin or Rock for if he was, they could have put him in a Mr. Right or RTC sort of gimmick who stood against AE.
If you notice, when 1-2-3 kid came back as X-Pac, they put him in the right place and he had another run in WWE, which they could not do for BB. He was backed by friends and entertainment value, neither of which can be said for BB, as good as he was a looker or in the ring.
Now I wish that had Owen Hart been around, they could have done a program with the two as the straights who stood for values against the AE times.
