Re: The Black Scorpion
Yeah, in his book Flair used this also as an example to show how much of a company man he was because the angle sucked, it made him look stupid and he immediately lost to Sting.
I also remember Flair bashing Al Perez for not agreeing to be the Black Scorpion, and he's right. Perez was a complete nobody and a shitty worker too so this was a golden opportunity to be inserted into the WCW main event scene. Even though it might have been a temporary thing, at least he would have made decent money and established his name somewhat. Perez will forever be a big moron for not accepting the role considering he amounted to jack shit the rest of his career.
