Will forever be a mystery how he had: Goldberg's streak, NWO break up storyline, Crow Sting, 1997 Hart Foundation, Raven's Nest, several hours of prime time TV, the CMLL roster, Flair controversy, Rey and Eddie, Hennig and Rude, Jericho, Regal, Steiner... All at the same time.These are some great points. It’s also worth pointing out that Viacom and others wanted nothing to do with the WCW brand even when it was under Vince McMahon’s control.
People overlook just what an idiot Eric Bischoff was too. He gets off easy because he plays a quick-witted sleazeball on TV really well. But this guy would have been an absolute nightmare to deal with. This is a guy that produced PPVs that went overtime without telling the providers causing mass refunds. Twice. This is also the man that cut his buddy a deal to distribute WCW home video, taking it away from Warner, costing them a lot of money. Concerts, bands, Jay Leno, unused sets. Hell, this is the guy who saw Goldberg vs. Meng for a huge rating and thought it meant he should push Meng.
Takes some talent to piss it all away in less than 18 months.
