Default Could WCW have Survived?

I've been watching a lot of old WCW matches lately and have been wondering if there was some way WCW could have survived the AOL/Time Warner merger. It's sad to think of how much talent they wasted in favor of the old timers.

WWE uses part timers and old guys to boost ratings as a temporary bandaid. Everything is so kid friendly now. It's all about selling merchandise.

Default Re: Could WCW have Survived?

It probably could have and it should have. WWE likes to ruin the careers of former WCW wrestlers. Look at Sting for example, fighting for the Heavyweight title at Wrestlemania in his last fight and those assholes just had to write it to where he lost. Knowing good and well a majority of fans wanted to see Sting go out on top, and he should have. With that said, WWE is just garbage.

Ted Turner kept WCW afloat because he loved wrestling and beating McMahon. As a business it was never a sustainable operation like WWE. If any other billionaire besides McMahon had purchased the company as some sort of side project, it would be better for anyone that enjoyed the attitude era. Post attitude era wrestling blows, except for CM Punk's feud with HHH.

Define successful, because none of them were ever as popular as Sting.

Maybe to be renowned as the guy whose ass was kicked by sting all the time haha I grew up watching wrestling and Flair was already near to end of his time when Sting came along at his pinnacle crow theme. Now not to sound like a fanboy, but come on you know Sting was more popular than flair lol

I'm a huge Sting fan, but I'm not naive enough to think he was as popular as Flair, careers compared . Plus, no Flair rub=no Sting. Flair took Sting under his wing when Sting got into NWA. Flair put him over.

Another tidbit, the Crow NWO era Sting was all Scott Hall's idea. Sting just sold the hell out of it. At that point, Sting was definitely THE man in professional wrestling.

You are right I am not trying to knock Flair or anyone for that matter, just saying when you heard that building erupt on WWE when Sting came out, you could tell they all knew who the hell he was. Not to mention WWE hyped it up like hell for those ratings.

Flair is getting his own ESPN 30 for 30. I don't any other wrestler ever gets that, except maybe Hogan or Andre the Giant.
