Re: Eric Bischoff almost put the WWF out of the business
Bischoff went nuts signing too many guys to guaranteed contracts.
Did he really need washed up or jabroni performers such as Scott Norton, Beverly Brothers, Glacier, Bobby Blaze, The Berzerker, Repo Man, Virgil, Jim Duggan, Public Enemy, The Barbarian, Chris Adams, Brutus Beefcake, Scotty Riggs, Barry Horowitz, Van Hammer, Horace Hogan, Crush and Scott Putski.
That is 20 completely pointless six figure salaries. Several luchadores were a waste of time too. He released the talented Sean Waltman as a message to Nash and Hall. Ted DiBiase and Rick Rude were barely used.
He also never took advantage of UK and Australia etc. WWE strongholds in which WCW had high ratings, but it was impossible to find WCW merchandise in them for a long time during the 90's boom.
The Warrior was a waste of 1 million dollars. Piper was paid even more to sit at home.
