Vince is the greatest non-wrestler (possibly all around) heel of all time. David Arquette is a random C-list actor. What do you think? :punk2

Vince winning the title wasn't even that bad. He's one of the most legit characters ever in an entertainment-based industry.

David Arquette's best known role is....

Vince= Greatest heel that isn't a wrestler ever.

My answer = Doofy.

Vince McMahon-A great heel.Perhaps the second biggest reason WWF won the Monday Night Wars

David Arquette-A nobody outside US(I honestly don't know who he is even now)

WWE propaganda at its finest in this thread. Saying that Vince deserved the title because he was part of the business and Arquette not because he was an actor is pathetic. Both were worse alongside Vince winning the Rumble.

There was nothing wrong with Vince winning the title, fit the character and the story fine

David Arquette by a land slide. The only reason they gave him the strap was to promote the dopey wrestling film he did "Ready to Rumble". I mean, I get it from the marketing stand point but still, god awful..

Its David Arquette for me. What business does he have getting in the ring to fight for the WHC? At least Vince winning it was part of a good story line.
It seemed that DA was only involved because he is a massive fan of wrestling, well so am i but you will never see the WHC title around my waste (i might have a chance at the IC title though)
I've seen Vince train & he can put people half his age to shame. In an ideal world neither of them should of won the strap, but i can forgive Vince for winning it but not Arquette.

Although I don't agree with the move of Vince winning the title and felt it was a little degrading to the guys in the back, it could be defended as just being a small part of a much bigger storyline. The Arquette thing was WCW trying to get cheap publicity and was one of the worst things they ever did as a company.

As the story went, the system helped Vince to the title. In fact, Vince WAS the system dammit. :vince3 All made perfect sense to me.

I don't even know what the circumstances were around Arquette winning the title, nor do I particularly want to. I can't even begin to imagine how it would have been possibly justified or realistic.

:kobe

Really propaganda?

Character wise it fit Vince winning the title.

Why the fuck was Doofy even in the WCW to begin with....they would've been better off having Karl Malone win the title than fucking David Arquette.

Vince McMahon winning the Royal Rumble set the seeds for the greatest RTWM.

David Arquette winning the WCW title?

Arquette. He was basically a rich and somewhat famous wrestling fan who did a wrestling movie. They should've just had him attack somebody instead of actually giving him the title for marketing. Vince is the greatest heel of all time and him winning at least fit the storyline.

WCW was desperate, and I find it understandable Russo wanted to try it.

In "Death of WCW" it says when a promotion has enough momentum, they can do no wrong. When they're in the gutter, they can do no right (paraphrased)

If Vince won it in December 97, it might have been a nail in WWF's coffin. But WWF was so strong in late 99 that they could afford to try Vince winning the belt.

If Arquette became WCW champion in mid 97, it wouldn't have mattered. WCW was too strong then.
