re: WCW Discussion Thread because people get asshurt about JUST RUSSO
You've mentioned loads yourself.
The Kane vs Taker feud in comparison to Sting and Vampiro.
I was a huge WCW fan and loved Sting but that feud was, at best, an aids induced fuckfest.
Remember the Goldberg feud with Steiner which was centred around Goldberg breaking script? The fuck was that all about?
Russo was very ahead of his time. Today, if a wrestler would "Break script" then everyone will praise it (Ex: Punk).
And by the way, it happened on WWF as well... Vince blamed the Undertaker for "Thinking he's the character" (He admits it's a character? Oh, dear!). Mick Foley also broke characters- He portrays gimmicks!
How about that time where DX showed that Curtain Call at MSG? This was about not following the script.
Or the Brawl for All (Not Russo's idea, but still)?
