Re: Bret Hart WCW - How would you book him?
Here's how I would work things.
Starcade 1997 - Sting goes over Hogan clean.
Then I'd have Eric Bischoff announce at Souled Out that Hart was taking on Sting for the Title. And I'd alluded that Hart was joining the nWo.
Hart declines the NWO Offer and they attack him before or during the match while they also attack Sting. Sting gets the Win.
Hart then forms a partnership with Sting, Warrior, DDP, Goldberg, Flair, Lex and over the next few months they take out the nWo. Ending with a Big Hart vs. Hogan match. After the NWO is taken out Hart wins the title and starts wrestling against Flair and DDP.
Dumbest thing was when Sting joined the Wolfpack.
