WWE's 2019 brand model in WCW 2000/1
We all know WWE are essentially recreating the territories using their own brand - Raw, Smackdown, NXT, NXT UK, 205 Live, Women. With rumours of an NXT Japan, Asia and South America.
Would this model have worked in WCW in 2000/1 with their bloated roster and their reboot of the entire company.
They could create 2 Main titles, a bit like they did in 1993 with the World title and International title.
Nitro - Featuring the A class guys like Goldberg, DDP, Booker T, Sting, Scott Steiner, Kevin Nash, Jeff Jarrett etc
Thunder - The B rated guys like Shane Douglas, Bam Bam Bigelow, Lance Storm, Mike Awesome, The Wall, Berlyn, etc
Cruiserweights - we know they created a Cruiserweight tag team championship in their dying days to accompany the singles title, so these could take over Saturday Night. Featuring the younger guys like Kidman, Rey Mysterio, Chavo Guerrero Jr, 3 Count, Jung Dragons, Chris Candido, Juventud Guerrera, Lash LeRoux, Elix Skipper, Crowbar and eventually guys like Air Raid, Kid Romeo, Cash, Johnny Swinger etc.
Power Plant - essentially WCW's version of NXT, this could take over worldwide and showcase the trainee's in the company, creating their own title, guys like Bob Sapp, Mike Sanders, Reno, Kwee Wee, Jindrak, O'Haire, Palumbo etc and guys who are struggling on the main roster could be sent there to develop further and boost the brand.
WCW also filed for WCWXtreme and WCW Extreme in 2001, so they were looking at launching their own ECW title or division and mopping up the guys left after ECW collapsed at the start of 2001.We know guys like CW Anderson, Doring & Roadkill and Super Crazy had offers from WCW, with Kid Kash and Johnny Swinger already in WCW before they closed. Other guys like Crowbar, David Flair, Chris Harris, James Storm, Meng, Norman Smiley, Finlay could have helped make this an interesting show.
