So basically, you're saying that when Nitro was doing a 2.9, it was Hogan's fault?
Without knowing what fully happened, you can't point the finger at a certain guy for the drop in ratings. Not saying it wasn't because of Nash but take into consideration that Savage just made his return, coincidence ratings fell? And Goldberg, their hottest ticket, basically taking the summer off, no coincidence?
Nash was not the worst drawing champion (that was Sid). Nash just had the worst reign because he basically had no main event quality opponents except for Bret, who was a babyface. You expect people to actually give a fuck about Diesel/Mabel?
But they weren't making any money.... Granted Turner sabatoged WCW from the get go but Bischoff spent his money like it was going out of style.
Did Rotunda needs to be in the nWo?
The TV Title was as prestigeous as the WWE Hardcore title when Martel won it.
Who wasn't making any money? And people obviously don't pay attention to details. Time Warner wanted nothing to do with wrestling from day 1. Turner having majority share is what kept WCW around until 2001, as Time Warner was going to pull the plug in 1996.
Did the NWO need to last over 2 years? Rotunda shouldn't have been on the roster, as he was never labeled as a main event quality talent.
And what did you expect, Martel to win the title? You just complained about guys nothing being on the road with guys like Booker and I pointed out that Martel/Booker was a pretty decent feud. Doesn't matter how prestigious the TV Title was, did you really expect him to be WCW's savior against the NWO?
