Re: WCW 2002: The Return
WCW is coming off the heels of a very successful Pay-Per-View with Superbrawl in Toronto. That being said, World Championship Wrestling is looking at more ways to build on their viewership and awareness. With ratings slowly increasing every week, WCW has now reached a 3.3 rating for their latest Nitro telecast that saw Chris Jericho return at part of the X Factor. WCW will be using Chris Jericho's band Fozzy to build on their popularity with fans and create more interest in the product. WWF has been said to be ignoring WCW's revival in hopes that their competitor will go away. This fatal flaw almost cost Vince McMahon WWF back in the 90s.
Eric Bischoff and other officials are quite happy with how WCW has been seen over the last month. The long term plan is to have Hollywood Hogan and Scott Steiner compete for the WCW championship. This is expected to happen at a major Pay-Per-View (Possibly Clash of the Champions). No word yet on where Chris Jericho will play in the mix, but fans are expecting Jericho to have a run with the title as well.
