Default "It Should Have Been _______"

So, we're doing another podcast this week, and for a change of pace we're looking at matches, pushes and angles in wrestling history where you could debate that somebody else should have gotten a certain spot, and things would have gone better than they did - should be a fun look back over different time periods.

Think somebody else should have run over Austin? Think somebody else should have beaten Goldberg? Think somebody else should have won King Of The Ring 95? Think somebody else should have main evented a WrestleMania rather than the guy that did? Think WCW should have built around somebody different? Etc....

Give us the one you always felt strongest about, whatever it may be, and explain how and why it could have worked. As always, we'll read the best contributions on the show and discuss what you think. Let's hear 'em!

One that immediately springs to mind is the end of Wrestlemania IX. It gets a lot of flack because a) Bret Hart lost his WWF Championship to Yokozuna, b) Hulk Hogan muscled his way into the main event picture to win the WWF title and close the show despite being injured and already booked to wrestle in Japan. I think that the ending would have been more popular if, instead of Hulk Hogan coming out to steal the show, Randy Savage leapt in and scored the victory. I mean, considering the way that the Royal Rumble ended (Yokozuna kicks out of a Randy Savage pin attempt and sends Savage sailing out of the ring) pointed at a potentially big feud between the pair. Plus, Savage was sitting at ringside for the entire show, and had a history of being quite a hot-headed character who would leap into the mix to save his buddy, Bret. I'd have booked Savage winning the title at WMIX, retaining against Yokozuna at King of the Ring (where Bret would win the tournament) and then set up a huge Savage/Hart match for Summerslam 1993. Would've been better.

NWO shouldve only been a select few..Hogan,Nash,Hall,Dibiase/Virgil,Syxx,Rick Rude all made sense since they were WWF, and they still couldve made an impact themselves. They didnt need to oversaturate by adding half the WCW roster to their stable

The wcw should have been focused around Bret hart post n.w.o storyline April 1999ish.

Bret hart had a solid following and he could have brought over fans with him had wcw made him a factor. By the time they finally did he was injured and forced to retire just weeks later. I believe the wwf would have still captured the lead over wcw however with hart at the helm I believe they would have had a decent 2000. Ratings not as bad..ppv buys better. Hart headlining ppvs instead of sid and jarret.. Wcw may have had a fighting chance atleast creatively.

Having Rikishi be the man who ran over Austin was madness. THey should've just made it HHH all along.

People claim Cena was politicking his way to destroy Wyatt in the other thread. All those people just got shut down.

"It was me Austin".....it should have been someone else IMO. Jake Roberts would have made a great Higher Power.

Also along the same line of thinking the Black Scorpion should have been someone else as well, heck just about any heel main eventer from the past but not Flair.

I maybe the only one but I liked Rikishi being the one who ran over Austin, but instead of elevating another heel to the main event picture they let him drop match after match and blowing every bit of what could have been a solid push for another top level heel.

The Raw GM? Holy cow they dropped the ball on that one. I think people were really interested in that angle. They could have done so much more.

It should have been someone else other than Brock who broke the streak. While from Taker's point of view, it makes sense to have Brock break him considering the fact that Brock had a legitimate fighting background, the rub could have been useful for someone else making a new star overnight.

Bret Hart should have walked out 24 hours after Survivor Series on Monday Nitro and cut a huge promo on Vince and the WWF. Then tied it into evil promoters/owners and then targeted Eric Bischoff and the nWo.
The Sting/Hogan match would have happned but Hart should have faced Hall or Nash as Bischoff's chosen guy. Then after Starrcade 1997, WCW should have built to a War Games match which ended the nWo storyline, with WCW going over. Somewhere in there or afterwards (maybe Starrcade 98) a Hart/ Hogan feud/dream match.

Then moving forward, WCW should have given the ball to Goldberg. I know he got injured and had to do some movies, but when he was there all the old farts like Hogan should have all stepped aside for the good of the company and allowed the most over guy on the roster be the champ. Yes he couldn't really go 20 mins, but that wasn't his appeal anyway. Goldberg should have led that company 1999 onwards.

wcw started to suck when people like hogan were stepping aside for a while. people like hogan sold out buildings even decades later, they were still on top in 99. the younger ones werent cutting it on their own, when the big names were missing that was the most boring period in wcw.
