You seem to be as anti-Warrior as I am pro-Warrior, but if you look at the facts, his reign as champion was NOT a failure. His supposed insanity (and I emphasise "supposed" -- the guy is actually very intelligent) has nothing to do with whether or not he sold tickets, PPVs, and merchandise... all of which he did.
I said he flopped creatively, not that he was a bad draw.

You see, I hated Warrior's title run because he was the worst worker ever and because of his feuds. The first one is his fault, the second is not. It has nothing to do with his numbers.

By the way... Scott Steiner is also intelligent. The guy's crazy. So Warrior can be intelligent but he's crazy as well.

And I will say that he's a poor worker... The guy was just like Goldberg, one trick pony.

How do you define "worker"?

A guy who's safe, knows moves, knows psychology...

Warrior was booking only. He got over by booking, bombed by booking. That's it.

Re: Instances Of Hogan Using Creative Control/Politics

2002 with Triple H and Jericho going on last on the Wrestlemania card. What a terrible decision. If I were to be watching that live, I would have turned the PPV off after Hogan/Rock. Nobody in their right mind in the wrestling community would think that Hogan/Rock was placed correctly on that card. The only arguement with this is that The World Title should always be last on the card. But nobody fucking stood up for Rock/Cena with having Punk/Jericho almost go at the halfway point of the broadcast.

Jericho revealed in his second book that Triple H's pay for that match was 8x larger than his. Isn't that incredible how that works? Triple H makes me fucking sick.




best in the world
