I don't think so at all (Bret ending the streak making WCW look like lower leagues) but we all have opinions. If anything it would have added to the whole 'WCW - where the big boys come to play'
What i don't think people in the US understand is just how huge Bret Hart was in Canada, Europe and Australia - and i believe WCW needed Bret Hart to take some WWF's market share in those markets. But they blew it and the fact that even at their worst WWF was more legit and popular overseas then WCW was at it's peak is part of the reason WCW died.
Didn't mean to go off on a tangent there - but there are plenty of reasons why Hart should have ended the streak, much more so than anyone IMO if we are talking business.
That's interesting. I was watching the old WCW that the E released on DVD and often saw them in weird places like Wyoming & South Dakota. It never made sense for them to be Wyoming to me, fucking nobody does a show from Wyoming or S. Dakota, especially not a wrestling show.
How about Raven with the help of his flock under Raven's Rules? Seriously, Raven should've been a huge star in WCW.
Raven was a victim of the glass ceiling and I agree that he should have been a bigger star but Goldberg had already went through Raven (and Raven's Flock) to get the US strap so having him end the streak would have confused the hell out of people. Plus that would have meant Raven being WCW's world champion and I'm sure Bischoff would rather piss on an electrical fence than make a Paul Heyman guy his world champion.
Raven was a huge star, but not really main event material. But for what it's worth, Raven was the guy who put over Goldberg for the U.S. title and it was an important step toward his ascent to the top. But Raven beating him makes no sense.
I've personally always thought Goldberg's streak should have been used to make someone else. So I would have went with Scott Steiner, with a clean victory. Then you have the old monster in Goldberg now appearing vulnerable, and have made a new monster in Steiner. Which would have ultimately humanized Goldberg.
Hard to say. It couldve been any of the main event guys, including Nash, but the story just had to make sense. It might've been good if Bret Hart did. It wouldve given him the killer instinct the moment he entered WCW and made him a true threat to the NwO. Or Sid Vicious, coming off a successful WWE run. I think Nash was only a bad choice because the story was bad. Not because it was Nash.
