Re: Why Didn't this guy work?
The rumor was that Foley was upset that Mero was paid more than him in WCW. Don't know how true. Also, that was a big reason for the hatred of HHH in 95-96. Foley bashed Mero big time in his book.
And what do you mean Vince pushed for Mankind/Austin instead? At most, they worked together once at the end of 1996. Mero got hurt 2 months later and by the time he came back, you had Austin, Undertaker, Bret, HBK, NOD and HHH all being key players in WWE. By the time Mero came back, time had passed him by. Obviously Vince saw something Mero, seeing as how he was pushed before Austin.
