But Savage should've been allowed to have been one of the strong points on the WCW side. Almost all the upper midcarders and main eventers at the time seem to have gone nWo and that killed the balance, that and when you have everyone and their mother joining nWo (jobbers to main eventers) it didn't seem that special anymore.
You're talking about 1998, in '97 it was still WCW vs. nWo
. I watched the 8/4/97 Nitro and then watched the 8/3/98 Nitro and I could clearly tell that WCW had worse booking in '98, on that Nitro show they had Wolfpac Sting turn back into Crow Sting out of nowhere and then the following Thunder was wearing red again and there wasn't an explanation for it
. That's the reason why WCW were far ahead of the WWF in '97 and the following year WCW were losing in the ratings more than winning.
