In the territorial days, champions would have to pay a deposit for the belts, insuring they wouldn't jump ship with the title.

Re: Interesting did you know facts???(old school edition)

The whole Steve Austin hugging Vince McMahon thing when Austin turned heel in 2001 was making fun of DDP. Apparently when DDP signed with the Fed in 2001, waving his guaranteed contract still in effect with WCW at the time because he so badly wanted to work with the WWF, when Vince went to shake Page's hand to seal the deal, DDP instead gave Vince a hug. The writers decided to work that into the Austin angle.

Yeah, so you believe everything you hear?

They didn't fire Austin because he was hurt, they fired him WHILE he was hurt. And from reports I've read, Austin had previously refused to job to guys like Renegade and Jim Duggan.

Well I heard it from Austin and I'm almost certain Bischoff said it at one point too. And he also said something about not being able to make any money off him.

Yeah, like someone is going to admit that the reason they got fired is for refusing to put others over.

And regardless, they are not entitled to tell the truth. IJim Duggan even talked about Austin refusing to put him over:



Now, I know Duggan still put him over but the match was supposed to go much longer than it did. They had to cut the match short because Austin didn't want to do it.

Now, ask yourself this: could you make money off a guy out with an injury and had previously refused to put certain people over?

It's not the point anyway and there is no need for us to get off topic.
