    Bischoff was grimey back in the day, i know Vince wanted that dude murdered. WCW screwed up when they stopped showcasing the midcard. All that talent in the company and all you wanted to show was the various incarnations of the NWO

    Not only did the NWO get stale but turning Goldberg heel wasnt a good idea either. They straight 🤬 on Jeff Jarrett in this documentary.

    lol they said no matter how many guiters he knocked over peoples heads he never drew a dime.


    it wasn't wcw fault that aol purposely sabotaged the company just to get rid of it.

    But it backfired as well. I think they said after they gave out the results prematurely millions of ppl turned from Nitro to Raw to watch 🤬 Foley/Mankind win the WWF title for the 1st time in his career and gave MNR it's most watched main event in years.

    yeah that documentary was good as hell. hate eric if u want, but that 🤬 single handily brought wcw out of the darkness. the thin i found interestin was how many mofos came b4 him to figure out what direction to take wcw. they had vince shook. lol. but at the end, wcw did themselves in. the nwo thing was ran into the ground. rthen russo pretty much became the grim reaper of wcw.

    i remember that...also if tony would have kept his mouth shut...they would have drew big ratings as always for their main event...on some real 🤬 i miss wcw...they literally had 3 hours of wrestling and different varieties...its not like nowadays when its promo, wrestle, promo, commercial, etc....it would have been interesting if wcw went through with the whole greed concept without the whole time/warner 🤬 ...maybe they would still be in business and we would have an alternative to watch on monday nights

    The 1 thing that seperated WWF from WCW IMO was that Vince knew how to make new stars & build up from the ground whereas WCW didn't know how ir just didn't want to. If u look back @ it WCW's most recognizable stars were former WWF stars: Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, Macho Man Randy Savage, Ric Flair, Lex Luger, etc. The only guys they really built up were Sting & Goldberg.

    Vince took The Rock & made him a star. He took guys from WCW who were not well-known or given a push like HHH, Undertaker, & Stone Cold & made them household names. WWF just seemed more built for the long run IMO.
