Do you mean the details of how ECW wasn't a success?
That post hasn't confirmed anything. Patience is the key here. Can't properly judge with limited view here friend.
ECW was a success in the 90's(limited success but success never the less). Oh hell yeah it was. More successful than WWE or WCW? Hell no. I never said that. But still they truly had a success in building a business with their own ideas.
Vince McMahon saw the potential of ECW and with better economical backing it's no wonder Stone Cold was a success.
Now I'm not even talking about WWE leeching Stone Cold as a talent from ECW. That's not the issue here. Everyone has been doing that for ages. That's not the concern here.
The deal is about Vince McMahon being smart enough after seeing the success of ECW and the whole anti establishment to make his "own idea" Of Stone Cold to come to life.
He knew what he had to do. So they made Stone Cold Steve Austin this anti establishment dude. Success much? But can we seriously think that McMahon would have risked this idea if Paul E never had success with the whole anti establishment idea to begin with? That of course can be speculated to no end but I guess you can see where I'm going with this.
Now to whomever said I was a jealous Rocky mark? Really? Really?
When did I even said that Stone Cold(the gimmick) was a bad idea or that he was bigger than The Rock and that I was jealous about that? No if anything as said it was best idea ever.
Awesome gimmick and really good working storyline between The Rebel and The Boss. Sure The Rock was not Nr. 1 guy but why the hell would anyone think it's a bad thing? He was close second and one of the best at that.
He was his biggest rival ever (The Rock) which made WWE even more of the success than it could have been. He was always kind of an underdog in the eyes of IWC (well to some degree and in some places) but that's never the bad thing.
Although hate as much as you want I think that Rocky is far more naturally gifted guy than Stone Cold ever was. Sure it's awesome that Stone Cold is a bad ass and people love that stuff but to be honest Rocky will still go down as best talker in the history of WWE. People can deny that but that's never going to change.
Stone Cold might been a bigger draw (totally agree) but The Rock is really a guy who could have taken his place at any time. Just because he didn't, doesn't mean he couldn't
And what do we have today? Who's the bigger star in Hollywood? Hmm? Who is still more entertaining? Sure The Rock does his thing but IMO it's at least not as boring as
Arrive, Recycle AE ideas, leave.
