What was going on in the Eastern Part of the USA from 1995-2000?
I ask because as of 1995, there was a tendency for the writers of WCW to lean on things like extortion, bullying and domination. It was mostly focused in WCW and started with the Dungeon of Doom. It continued with the NWO and over the next few years, people were threatened, beaten up, extorted, kidnapped. Did places like New Jersey, New York or the like harbor any sympathies for these methods? What was going on in the states in this time-frame to make them so popular and so well organized?
