re: WCW Discussion Thread because people get asshurt about JUST RUSSO

Yeah, after watching some of the 2001 stuff back I did get a kick out of that too. In fact, they actually seemed to try with a bit of stuff in 2001. I know there were still it's bad moments of course, but it felt like they wanted to put more effort in that what was given back in 2000. Only it was WAYYYYYYYY too little too late at that point. Then again, if it wasn't for the AOL merger and dick of a president (think that's who it was) Bischoff would have owned the company and it could have lasted longer.

I think Sullivan, Johnny Ace, and maybe one or two other people were booking WCW for the last few months. Could be wrong.

Not much longer, since Bischoff had all sorts of control for years and slowly killed the company from '99 on.

Yeah, b/c anyone could make that claim. Lets be realistic here.

Like I said, the company was actually trying back in 2001. It wasn't even the same hot mess that it was in 1999. Plus, Bischoff wasn't completely burned out like he was in 1999.

The bell never rang, signaling the end of the match. Just based off every other scaffold match in history, I assume Franchise & Torrie won but the bell never rang and nobody said anything.

Too little, too late. All their workhorses were gone by then. There just wasn't enough star power to keep it going. Maybe if Easy E gave a shit back when he had a good roster, they would still be alive.

Once again, nobody knows that. Bischoff could have had control and it could have died in one week or one year or any other number of possibility. I'm not going to mouth off and make a bunch of claims that are can never be answered. Only reason why the company folded in the first place was b/c of the AOL merger. Had nothing to do so much with the company in as bad shape as it was.

Now back to topics that matter...

PITTSBURGH PLUNGE MATCH. Kidman's fall was a nice highlight. Nothing like a head first drop. Madusa's was beyond weak, haha. I wished I owned that show - Fall Brawl 2000. Goldberg vs Steiner, man. Now that's a match.
