Re: Had Russo not come into WCW 1999...
Basically you wouldn't have seen as much Bret Hart, Jeff Jarrett, Chris Benoit, Filthy Animals, Medusa, Oklahoma, Dr. Death, Harris Twins, Misfits in Action, Three Count etc.
It'd still be a mess of a show, as Nash's booking from Superbrawl 99 on was just mind boggling. Yeah, Russo ended up executing some mind boggling ideas, but he didn't have anywhere near the same calibre of talent as Nash did and didn't spoil as much as Nash did, he just added to the downfall.
Just spit-balling but I'd imagine Starrcade would have looked like...
Ric Flair/Diamond Dallas Page
Kevin Nash/Bret Hart
Scott Hall/Chris Benoit
Then a bunch of irrelevant mid-card matches that fans would appreciate but the company would barely acknowledge in the long run. Like, Kidman/Inferno, Konnan/R. Steiner, Booker/El Dandy & such.
