What? WCW was nowhere near an Attitude Era until the failed experiments in 2000.

Vince steals everything, sticks to formulas, all served up on a pedestrian production. He can afford to pay good editors and artists to do everything, people who would never work in wrestling otherwise because of his sheer monopoly in the business.

You need to be specific. I'd say there were plenty unique storylines in WWE that haven't been told in other media. Flair-Shawn-Batista-Jericho from 2008 is a prime example of good storytelling, Punk and Hardy was a unique feud, Billionaires fighting for their hair, One billionaire with a leprechaun for an illegitimate son etc.

Vince build his empire on stealing other people's ideas,plagiarizing and being a vile,disgusting,ruthless son of a bitch.Some may call him a piece of shit for that,i call him a genius.

Can anyone name a storyline from WCW or TNA that was original?

Undertaker? Kane? MITB match? Royal rumble? Elimination chamber match? These are "gimmick" matches and fresh ideas surely.. Mae Young giving birth to a hand? Who the hell were they ripping off then?! Matt Hardy V1 was pretty original-god knows why I thought of him..... Repo man? Naked Mideon? Random yes.... Surely a whole host of 80's/90's gimmicks were unique, as gimmicks weren't widely used back then...

Kane is so not an original idea that its almost funny.

Hulkamania. Making a gimmick that allowed the mainstream audience to embrace wrestling.


Oh, and the concept of sports entertainment.
