Re: WCW Discussion Thread because people get asshurt about JUST RUSSO
WCW had a ridiculously strong roster that year.
Complete waste. Never a good wrestler but a Sandman/Raven revival feud could have been fun even in ultra PG WCW.
They did nothing with him. Nash didn't even know who he was according to legend.
Russo killing the cruiserweight division finished him off. If there is one reason to dislike him, it is letting this guy get released.
Any of these guys could have moved into the main event in '99, but Nash, Hogan and co wouldn't have it:
Big Poppa Pump
Rey Mysterio Jr. - losing his mask was a mistake)
That brings me to Steven Regal.
He got a great push '93 to '97 under a character which was too restrictive for headlining. When he returned in 1999 they did nothing with him. We knew how talented he was though, evidence in WWE 15 months later under his Goodwill Ambassador gimmick.
