Actually, Martel feuded with Booker for the TV Title and Rotunda was a member of NWO.

Also, WCW once had upwards of 200 guys under contract but Turner could afford it.

And what did Nash booking do damage to? Because Nash dropped the belt to Savage 2 months later and just like his previous PPV title win over a year before, lost it the next night to Hogan. So, how can we blame Nash for that?
I guess it's just a coincidence that the same guy who had the worst drawing WWF Title reign of all time also happened to become WCW Champion the same time the ratings fell in '99.

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.

The WWE could say release a DVD saying that Goldberg went on a mass murder backstage on the last episode of Nitro, which caused Vince to step in and buy the company. They own everything relevant in the United States. Who the fuck is going to challenge them? Robocop?

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?

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?

Well, Goldberg may have been their hottest ticket, but Hogan buried his ass back to the midcard, maybe thats why he took time off. And no, I am aware no one gave a shit about Diesel/Mabel. But Diesel was a very exciting champion in any stretch of the imagination.

FPOD did kill WCW cuz fans finally realized NWO was going to ruin the entire show and always make it about them. It may not have effected WCW right away but not long after they were getting killed by over double in the ratings to WWF. As much as I love Hulkster he and Nash killed WCW

How did Hogan bury Goldberg? And Goldberg took time off to shoot a movie. Goldberg was all over the place in 1999, winning the US Title, Tag Team Titles and 1 night as World Champion before being stripped. And 2 months after Goldberg returned, Hogan left. I think the only interaction they had in 1999 was as tag team partners.


You admit that nobody cared about Diesel/Mabel and say Diesel was an exciting champion. With challengers like Sid & Mabel, how do you expect him to be a draw? And what are you basing his drawing ability on? Can't be ratings because RAW was a 1 hour show that Diesel rarely worked. You can't base it on buyrates because the lowest buyrate was for a show Diesel didn't even work (IYH in December). And the PPV's he did work drew basically the same buyrate they did before him.

How was he the worst drawing champion?

But ratings held up. The NWO angle was completely finished by the time the ratings started to double.




And again, Hogan and Nash didn't kill WCW. WCW was on borrowed time and once Time Warner gained full control. it was doomed. Had they attained full control in 1996, none of that NWO shit would have saw the light because they would have pulled the plug then.
