Yeah he sure was, but how marketable was he to kids compared to Hogan, Savage, Warrior, Bret etc?

Yeah, he did just scream mid card all over however he was pretty bad ass, I think there were a lot of backstage things going on with Bad News, I mean didn't he go to town on Vince in the end or something, he came across as a legit bad ass.

I mean when you think about Zeus working the main event with Hogan etc.. you could imagine Bad News also being there and doing that, I think he was difficult to work with though I'm not sure.

I don't really remember him winning a match, most I remember is them just ending up in brawls to count out's and things like that.

He always had the look and feel of a solid heel mid carder.

Well, he did have a match against Hogan on SNME (although Savage was champion at the time). In one of the dumbest moments ever, from what I remember he grabbed the mic and announced prior to giving Hogan the ghettoblaster than he was about to do it. When he attempted to do it, Hogan ducked and then ended up earning the typical Hogan victory. I think he also had some title shots vs. Hogan.

Personally I think he would have made a great IC champ, but there really was no time to fit him in during the days of Warrior-Rude-Hennig.

Brown was booked very strong and gained many victories over Bret Hart and other top-tier mid carders. I believe the only two guys he suffered pinfall losses to during his time in WWE were Hogan and Roberts. Piper didn't even go over at WMVI.

Its because he was black. The WWF was super racist back then. Just look at how their black wrestlers were treated as jokes

Considering there was only a handful of champions during that era you shouldn't be. Hogan pretty much had his own formula and worked the patriotic or the underdog angles. Nothing against Bad News but there's a long list of guys who didn't get opportunities back then.

He was in his mid-40's by the time he arrived in the WWF, wasn't he? I would say that played a big role in his a lack of a main event run. He was one hell of a legitimate badass for the time, though. Dude was so intimidating that Andre the Giant backed down from a potential fight with him. Now that is a badass.

He did go around the horn with Savage in the main events when Savage was champ after Bad News accused Elizabeth of "doing favours" for Jack Tunney, but that was about as much as he was going to get. A lot of heels were fed in an our back then, and Bad News certainly wasn't in the league of a guy like Savage who managed to stick around at the top for a while.
