That’s what I thought. He was the eastern championship wrestling champion at the time but won a tournament for the NWA title but after he won he threw throw down the NWA title and said he did not want to be champion of a “dead” company. He also then stated that the Eastern Championship Wrestling title at the time was now a world championship which of course went on to be come the Extreme Championship title.
However I agree for the most part with the OP. I too found Douglass to be rather bland most of the time.
