Re: Why did David Arquette have such a predominant role in wrestling?

I had no problem with David Arquette being in WCW, promoting his movie and being involved. It would be nice to see more celebrities promoting wrestling because they're fans.

I did have/still have a problem with him winning the title. It doesn't matter if it was Russo or Schivone (Duchebag) or anyone else in WCW management, placing the Heavyweight title on Arquette was such a bad, bad, stupid idea.
And how is it that Arquette knew that him winning the title was a bad idea, but no one in management could see how stupid it was?

Trust Me

You also have to consider that WCW rose to the top, in part, by using celebrities in the ring: Jay Leno, Karl Malone, Dennis Rodman, etc.

And WWF had also used Mr. T and others.

The bad idea was putitng the strap on him, and David did not want that in any way. By all accounts he handled himself with class, treated all the guys in the locker room with complete and total respect. After the title win I believe he took the entire roster out for drinks on him, and he donated his payment for that run to the families of Brian Pillman and Owen Hart and to Darren Drozdov, who was paralyzed in a wrestling accident.

Arquette was put in a very bad position but should be applauded for how he handled it.

Release the hounds!

Probably because Aquette knew he wasn't a wrestler, didn't have wrestling talent, knew the fans knew this and probably felt it was an insult to all the other wrestlers who actually deserved the title lol

Yeah, I agree with this and that's what I was on about with this post exactly, there is only so far celebrities can and should be used within the product on TV, and I think having them win a title isn't right, I mean a title is supposed to be something that only the best and legit win, you wouldn't get a none boxer going into a boxing match and winning the title, it's the same principle.

Which is why I find it confusing and was interested into what you guys thought here with Arquette having such a predominant role in WCW, it was too much and not realistic and I applaud Arquette also for the way he handled everything completely!
