Re: Anyone else a fan of Russo Era 1.0 in WCW? (Oct '99 - Jan '00)

Didn't Halloween Havoc have .52 (maybe the website I'm looking at doesn't have the correct buyrates)? Don't forget that Starrcade was WCW biggest PPV, and the buyrates for Starrcade had never been...

Wasn't that the episode where they did reruns and next week the reboot?

Re: Anyone else a fan of Russo Era 1.0 in WCW? (Oct '99 - Jan 00)

It has nothing to with me shitting on Russo (he had a huge part in the creation of the AE). Like I said Raw's ratings went up as well thanks to the end of the football season. This does influence...

Re: Anyone else a fan of Russo Era 1.0 in WCW? (Oct '99 - Jan '00)

If you look at the ratings for the year '99 they were around 3.0 even before Russo came. Russo didn't add anything while having a huge contract, and being hyped as the guy who created the AE. WCW's...

Re: Anyone else a fan of Russo Era 1.0 in WCW? (Oct '99 - Jan 00)

Check Raw's ratings: they also went up during that period in time (18.10.99: 5.45 - 10.1.00: 6.6). Russo can act that it was his writing that brought in the ratings, when as a matter of fact it was...

Re: Anyone else a fan of Russo Era 1.0 in WCW? (Oct '99 - Jan 00)

You're right about Russo declining that offer and going home, but Russo did want to put the title on Abbott. As a matter of fact there is/ was a shoot on YouTube (can't seem to find it right now),...

Re: Anyone else a fan of Russo Era 1.0 in WCW? (Oct '99 - Jan 00)

No, Russo was sent home, because he wanted to put the title on Abbott. When Sullivan became head booker again, immediately after Russo was "fired", everbody left due to his previous booking.

Re: Anyone else a fan of Russo Era 1.0 in WCW? (Oct '99 - Jan 00)

It was ridiculous. Most matches didn't even take 3 minutes (I'm not exaggerating), everyone that wasn't in the ME got shitty comedy gimmicks (Buzzkill, Prince Iaukea, Chavo, etc.), not a single match...

Re: Rufus "Pancake" Patterson!!!

Hated it, but that's probably because I'm not American and I don't get your shitty humor.

Re: Boss Man hanging at WM15

Like I said in another topic, no one even gave a fuck it happened; the commentators were talking about the next match, no one was coming out to help the Big Boss Man, etc. The whole angle didn't make...

re: WCW Discussion Thread because people get asshurt about JUST RUSSO

That had to do with the end of the football season. Note that at the same time WCW's ratings went up, so did WWF's. After he came back the ratings didn't went up again. Even Russo admitted that.

Re: Potential storylines if Vince Russo was executive head of creative in 2013

Oh, don't get me wrong Cornette showed at RoH that he doesn't have a clue, and in my opinion '99 was the best year of the AE, but it was total chaos. Storylines were filled with plot holes and all...

Re: Potential storylines if Vince Russo was executive head of creative in 2013

'97 does feel different then '98 and '99. Especially the beginning of '97 until SS. You got far more wrestling matches, and matches were actually longer. That being said not every match ended by...

Re: Potential storylines if Vince Russo was executive head of creative in 2013

Actually Cornette was gone from creative at the end of '97 (he couldn't take it anymore). When Ed Ferrara got hired (after King of the Ring '98) it became a real cluster fuck.

Re: Plans for D-Generation X before Shawn Michaels was injured ???

Owen Hart should never have joined the Nation, and shouldn't feud with HBK (Owen was a midcarder). They totally fucked up his feud with Triple H though, which could have been great.

Re: Ed Ferrara as "Oklahoma" on HeAT (March 1999)

What do you mean? I thought it was pretty well known that Oklahoma appeared in WWF?

I don't get the Test love; can't cut a promo, average in the ring and no charisma whatsoever.

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

Oh, come on. This is Lawler we're talking about. Has everyone forgotten Lawler's infamous promo on Goldust and a lot of other bullshit he said while being a commentator during the AE?
