Perry Saturn for me was one of those guys like Raven, Mike Awesome, Lance Storm, Shane Douglas, Bam Bam Bigelow, Stevie Richards and Big Vito that WCW signed from ECW simply so ECW couldn't have them and to pack out their own roster but with no idea on what to actually do with them soon after signing them. In ECW as a part of The Eliminators i'd go as far as to say that only The Dudley Boys were a better all round tag team and they are considered to be one of the very best of all time which says a lot of about how good The Eliminators were.
Much like with Raven in WCW it started off alright for Perry Saturn as he was basically the enforcer of The Flock alongside Raven, Billy Kidman, Chris Kanyon, Lodi, Scotty Riggs and Van Hammer and if i remember rightly Perry Saturn was briefly th TV title holder although by that time in WCW that title didn't mean what it did in the early 90's. Once Perry Saturn turned face and began feuding with Raven he became more and more irrelevant as WCW only knew how to book the top four or five feuds and everything else including their Cruiserweight division became directionless and poorly used.
I didn't have much hope for Perry Saturn really when he came to WWE as WWE by 2000 were stacked in every department and he was always going to be behind in the mid card to Chris Benoit, Eddie Guerrero and Dean Malenko who came in with him as well as Kurt Angle, Chris Jericho, William Regal and Taz. If i look at someone who was booked horribly in WWE then Perry Saturn would instantly spring to mind as he had horrible storylines with Terri Runnels and fucking "Moppy" which saw Perry Saturn thrown in horrible matches with Raven and The APA.
