Default Re: British Bulldog's Return In 99

Pretty sure Bulldog was in talks with Vince even before Owen died. I vaguely remember a story of Bulldog saying while he was out hurt from his back injury WCW let him go and he was talking to Owen and Owen put Vince on the phone with him one day to try to smooth things over between the two. By the time Bulldog got healthy Owen had died and I'm sure Vince wanted to bring him back more than ever at that point since he knew the audience would initially be excited to see his return after the Owen tragedy.

Bulldog just wasn't a fit for the attitude era. He was a washed up wrestler at that point and he fit much better with the early-mid 90's brand of WWE that was long gone.
