Default Why did Bad News Brown leave WWE & not go to WCW

Bad News Brown was supposed to be on Ted Dibiase's 1990 Survivor Series Team, but left the company before the PPV and was replaced by a mystery partner who turned out to be The Undertaker. He had a good run, and probably could have continued in WCW.

Anyone know why he left and why he never joined WCW like so many others including Rick Rude who left around the same time?

He was promised a run with Hogan, being the top heel in the company. He was also promised that he was going to become the first black world champion. Obviously none of that ever happened. From what I've heard, he marched into Vince's office, called him out on everything he had lied to him about, then quit.

The amount of protection his character got was ridiculous.

According to Bad News, he gave his notice when he found out that Piper got $50,000 for WM 6 and he only got $10,000.


As far as not going to WCW, he seemed to only want to go back to Japan. A lot of guys were like that at the time. I guess the pay was better and there was less bullshit and politics, not sure.

I don't remember Bad News Brown ever winning or losing a match. It was always brawl to the back count-out or a double disqualification.

Bad news beat Bret Hart several times, being built up to get fed to Savage and Hogan.

To me, Bad News Brown, is a black version of Stone Cold, or should I say Stone Cold is a White version of Bad News.

-Both wore black trunks, boots and kneepads
-Both had brawling as their wrestling styles
-Both had a shaved head
-Both had facial hair
-Both had that DTA gimmick, don't trust anybody
-Both had that don't give a damn about anything mentatlity


While Bad News was a legitimite bad ass, Austin was like a million times more charesmatic and better on the mike.

From what I heard, Bad News grabbed Vince by the scruff of the neck and told him that he was lucky he didn't kill him for all the lies Vince had told him.

Another possible reason is because Bad News was not particularly well-liked and was difficult to work with. I doubt WCW wanted to deal with his attitude, similar to why Dynamite Kid never went to WCW. Their reputations proceeded them.

I'm sorry but can you elaborate? I don't understand.

I never knew he was promised a feud with Hogan. He was always just a mid carder to me.

Lol remember the Harlem sewer rat that was really an opossum?
