Re: Brian Pillman in WCW
I never quite understood it either, but from what I can remember from shoot interviews is that Pillman had come up with this Loose Cannon gimmick and Bischoff liked it. At the same time though Pillman wanted out of the company, he wanted to go to the WWF, he hated WCW's environment and knew he was never going to be pushed anyway. So he came up with this idea to be "fired" by WCW with Bischoff, then show up on ECW, shoot on Bischoff and WCW (which he did), stir some shit up there and then eventually return to WCW as a hot commodity, as a true loose cannon. The problem is Pillman basically said fuck it, you released me, I'm free now. So he went to the WWF.
