YES he would have been marketable to a Mexican audience but that would be it. Guys like Bret, Undertaker or Savage could sell out in any country and cater to any audience.

None of the WWF guys from the early 1980's liked Bret Hart. They considered him a whiner and then he screwed the locker room by agreeing to work for less money.

Re: Wrestling Rumors & Title Runs

Shawn Michaels and The Undertaker were supposed to jump to WCW in early 1998.

Eddie Guerrero was supposed to win the World Title back in 2005, also Dibiase was supposed to win the WWF title tournament in 1988.

Rumor has it that Orton was the one who was set to win the title in that match.

Just a rumor, not credibility to this. Since Vince own that gimmick and Mark Callaway is a Company man. I do not beleive this rumor one bit. Sure WCW might have approached Callaway, but no way he would ever have considered doing it

Re: Wrestling Rumors & Title Runs

The finish for the In Your House match between Mankind and HBK was changed about 5 minutes before the end of the match by Vince at ringside. Mankind was originally supposed to win the WWF Championship.

Don't remember hearing about Undertaker, but I do remember hearing around that time that Michaels was quite unhappy with Vince & the WWF at the time & wanted to go & hang out with Hall & Nash in WCW.
Not sure if it was true or if it was just speculation because his friendships with Hall & Nash & wishful thinking on fans parts to see Michaels walk out on Nitro in an N.W.O. t-shirt.

Trust Me

Never heard about the Undertaker but I'm sure if his contract was up he talked to WCW for leverage.

Also HBK did talk to WCW and thought about going but realized he wouldn't achieve much with Hogan in WCW.
