What if Foley didn't win?

For this weeks Raw1000 moment, Foley talked about when he first won the WWE title and of course, the whole WCW moment where they told everyone that Foley had won the title(and 600,000 people switched from Nitro to Raw).

What I wanna know, is what if that exact same moment happened(where they told people what did happen in that exact same title match), and the result that happened was Foley losing(meaning they told people on Nitro that over on Raw, Foley had just lost the title match).

Would the same thing have happened where all those fans suddenly tuned into Raw?

Or what if they told people Foley lost and in reality, he actually did win.

Re: What if Foley didn't win?

I don't think much would have changed. WCW would still lose half a million viewers in minutes, Nitro would still be shit and hundreds of thousands of people would have still switched from WCW to the Fed. Foley just wouldn't be putting butts in seats.

Re: What if Foley didn't win?

Nothing, because this entire story is just another typical rewriting history BS from WWE. They made it seem like the only reason RAW won that night is because of Schiavone, when in fact, it was a regular thing for both shows to get a significant amount of viewers from the other show when they had an attractive main event that people wanted to see. And above all else, Nitro actually won the overrun that night for the Nash/Hogan match and the Goldberg/nWo beatdown(6.5 to 5.1)

Re: What if Foley didn't win?

i remember that night clearly, i watched the nitro till the very end, granted i was young and never was into the whole ratings war thing, just enjoying the show

but wwe are trying to rewrite history, they make it sound like foley was the sole reason they won that night, that comment by schiavone wasn't that big of a deal, most fans never even talked about it, even if the foley win never happened it would of went done very much the same

and yes wcw still won the overrun
imo wcw beat themselves, but vince loves to think he owned everybody

wcw kicked vince's ass for 2 years, and it would of continued if not for wcw's own mistakes, all the "attitude" stuff was created by heyman/ecw, not by vince

if anybody deserves credit for the attitude era it was ecw, and then wcw for sparking the war, without ecw/wcw there is no attitude era

vince still is releasing wcw dvds today because he knows they will sell, and if vince is so smart how come wrestling has sucked for the last 10 years

Because he's SMART enough to know that when you're the ONLY game in town, you don't have to actually try. Why would he burn himself out unnecessarily? Where are you gonna go? TNA? HA! Good luck.

What everyone really wants for Christmas:

Re: What if Foley didn't win?

true just pointing out vince isn't as smart as he or his fanboys like to think

the whole attitude stuff he stole from ecw, and wcw lost because of there own mistakes

vince's company was doink the clown crap in the early 90s, ecw/wcw changed everyting and vincw was forced to adapt and steal ideas, once wcw/ecw were gone wrestling sucked again

and i don't watch todays product, very rarely, i have watched 1 raw in the last 2 months, i would rather watch the ecw/wcw dvds they are releasing then todays product to get my wrestling fix

but hey if you want to watch a kiddie horrible show go ahead
