re: WCW Discussion Thread because people get asshurt about JUST RUSSO
There's a difference between breaking the script, and doing it well.
Would it be the same if Ziggler did that shoot instead of Punk in 2011? No.
The Curtain Call incident was the wrestlers breaking script and had nothing to do with booking and Triple H was punished for it. That is totally different to Russo instructing people to break the script.
Also, wasn't it Russo's idea for Sid to do a top rope move, resulting in him breaking his leg?
See? That's why you are wrong. You don't get your facts straight.
It WASN'T Russo's idea to have Sid jumping... First off- He's not an agent, he's a writer. And second- He left WCW at October 2000, and Sid broke his leg on January 2001.
About the Curtain Call- During late 1997, DX showed the curtain call. So they showed themself breaking the script in public.
Would Ziggler break the script better then Punk? No. But a lot of people want to see the wrestlers being involved in a "Shoot" storylines.
And, as I said, Russo did the same thing at WWF. So yeah.
