Re: What if Kurt decided to join ECW?

Even if he had joined ECW, I think he still would have signed with WWE when he did.

I don't really see what he could have added to ECW. Keep in mind this is in 1996, so we're not talking about the same Kurt that became a star in WWE. Sure, he had an olympic gold medal but I don't think mattered much in ECW. Kurt might have stayed for a year, involved in the Taz/Sabu but I can't help but think that it might have altered things. Fonzie might not have turned on Taz at Barely Legal, potentially preventing the rise of Rob Van Dam or the Jerry Lawler invasion, 2 key moments of ECW history.

Re: What if Kurt decided to join ECW?

Kurt himself wouldn't have saved ECW, he wouldn't have been a draw there. Despite him being an Olympic gold medalist it was the WWF that made him a draw, I don't believe that ECW could have accomplished with him very well. He'd have put on some great matches but he wouldn't have kept ECW afloat any longer, he'd have been another talented wrestler they'd have struggled to pay. And with Angle its possible that it would have prevented others from shining i.e RVD.

He wouldn't have saved the company unless he suddenly became Heyman's financial adviser but he would have pulled off some great matches in an ECW environment.
