For this rebuild I would love to hear your feedback. I will be showing the roster and the batch of people signed to appear on AWA along with thoughts about them.
Sgt. Slaughter on this was a heel so I'm definitely going to cash in on a big turn eventually. I have to grow the territory and using ESPN I need to make my stars national like Jerry Lawler and Curt Henning. I have guys like Snuka and Slaughter that have the WWF recognition. I don't plan on going Hardcore but I will stretch it on my events with Cactus Jack. ESPN doesn't like gory matches so they reject it. My SuperCards aren't televised so anything goes until I can get an event deal.uhhh Slaughter was a face in 87 maybe one of the top faces in the world.
He was not a heel.
Perhaps the only chance the AWA had was to enforce some sort of fitness level on Slaughter and keep him in shape.
He was the only national star they had.
Lawler was over in the South...but Slaughter was national.
Perhaps they use the ESPN connection and actually keep Slaughter fit?
Then they strike first on the hardcore wresting? I don't' know
