I don't know if my eyesight is failing me, but I swore I saw blood around the eye of Scott Steiner after he got clotheslined by Luger. When Steiner came in he looked fine, but once the nWo came in and did their mudhole stomp on Luger, you could see blood , even when WCW tried to switch camera angles to hide this.I think that ol' Scotty forgot the 11th Commandment of pro wrestling: Thou Shalt Remove Thy Sunglasses When Thou Wrestles A Big Stiff.
With Bill Goldberg being so strong, so creative, and namely so disturbed, is there a chance of this man receiving a title shot in the near future? We all wonder what makes this man tick, but i think everyone can agree, Bill Goldberg needs a title!!!!!!!! I think running him in with the flock, Saturn, Rick Martel, and then up to Booker T is the way to go. That would be quite an impressive match with Goldberg hearing voices telling him to simply break Booker T. Who in the hell could beat that crazy bastard? (besides Billy Kidman)I'll admit it, Goldberg has debuted like few people in this sport. I think that, with the push he's getting, he could be another coming of the Road Warriors, who pretty much made their early career of rushing to the ring, beating the tar out of some poor jobbers, and getting a lot of fan heat. I can see the same thing happening with Goldberg.
I couple of comments about what you missed (probably because of the sick medicine). When Hammer dropped to his knee and put out his hand I think he did that to catch DDP's spit. He put his hands together after that like when you spit in your hands. Also Konnan's reference to being a foregone conclusion was he could have been 4 life instead he was a 4 gone conclusion. Just a little play on words.Ah, it all makes sense now. I think I should avoid medicines with "P.M." in their titles before attempting to write. Thanks for catching that.
What do you think about Buff Bagwell being a US champion or maybe Mortis since they won't give Benoit the title, which he deserves anyways. Also, what do you think about Scott Hall being the World Champion, I know they won't let him beat Sting but if he did what do you think about that?I think Bagwell would be a fine US champion. He's got a lot of skill, and a great ring presence. I can see Mortis as TV champion. That guy comes up with new moves every match, and could really go places if they took him out of that corpse outfit and gave him a chance.
I'll give my thoughts in the order I asked myself the questions (gotta love these all-in-one kits).
Now, if you think the numbers sound reasonable, then you've got about half your crowd who'd be there if you just had Vincent or the Fabulous Moolah in action. And there's half who need to see good wrestling action to be satisfied.
I count myself in the second half (obviously....anyone who marks for Brad Armstrong can't be there to see the title matches). Problem is, Eric's obviously writing the scripts for the other half in the building. But more on that in a minute...
Bischoff has a choice: He can either start grooming the Benoits and Guerreros of the company to be the next big stars, or he can push the Hogans and Flairs until they drop dead in the ring. Obviously, you can see which choice he's making.
I think that Bischoff's become so emboldened by the success he's had with past-their-prime WWF'ers from the late 80s (Hogan, Savage) and early 90s (Diesel, Razor Ramon) that's he's going to suck that well dry if he can. How else do you explain Brian Frickin' Adams coming in (absurdity #1) and getting right into a main event feud with Bret Hart (absurdity #2 - the quick feud, not Hart), while Dean Malenko works once a month? Why else the rumors that they're going to take the Stone Cold Chartbuster away from Disco, one of the most improved young wrestlers in the last 6 months, and give it to Ed Frickin' Leslie, who not only sucked as Brutus Beefcake, but also as the Lon Chaney of WCW?
I really think that unless Bischoff gets his act together, he's sealing his own fate here. Sure, people are going to continue to watch for the next year or so, while the old guys are still there and the new guys are still under contract, but what happ ens when you've pissed your good young future stars off, and the old guys retire? How smart is hiring the British Bulldog and Jim Neidhart away going to look then.
I don't know what the future holds, but I can guarantee you that it still won't be a title reign for Brad Armstrong.
