If WWE and WCW swapped writers during the Monday night wars......

Just as the title says, would anything have changes if the writers were swapped between WCW and WWE during the monday night wars?

Seriously?

Quote:
On October 5, 1999, Russo and Ed Ferrara signed with WCW;[1] Russo contends that his reason for leaving the WWF was the result of a dispute with Vince McMahon over the increased workload that he (as well as Ferrara) was facing, with the introduction of the new SmackDown! broadcast. When SmackDown! was introduced as a new show, Russo was not happy about writing two more hours of shows per week, especially due to the fact he was feeling overworked, burnt out, and less passionate working in the WWF creative team for so long. McMahon simply told him to "Go hire a nanny," resulting in the alleged altercation. Additionally Russo has stated (in the RF Shoot Video series) that the desire to seek a new challenge (by going to WCW), as well as his own personal interest in whether or not he would be able to repeat the same successes without the guidance of Vince McMahon, were also strong contributing factors to his move.
from wikipedia

WCW really didn't have any writers to swap, but Russo definitely jumped on-board and the ship kept sinking, so there ya go.

It all comes down to management. Like it or not Vince was a much better business guy than Eric. People knew where they needed to be, who was in charge, what there job was, etc. Also Vince never EVER let the inmates runs the asylum (OK he almost did with the Clipue, but nothing compared to what Hogan, Nash, and Hall did). If something was right for business he would do it. Now granted I think he lost his touch over times of peace, but during the wars Vince was a general and a boss, while WCW management were like kids fighting over a toy car.
