Funny how only one of those people were there at the end of WCW. Also funny how all of them, with a possible exception in the Big Show, are doing much better for themselves in the WWE.

If the WWE is ever going to move Benoit up to the main event level this is a great place to start. Benoit and the other 3 defecting hurt WCW badly. But Benoit was the champ at the time and never lost the WCW title. Just tell or remind the fans of that fact. Then bring it up on SD. Of course the main event is pretty crowded right now so I doubt that they will ever do that.

There is no way in hell the casual fan is going to care about this. The WCW title has been so tarnished now that nobody cares.

Screw the main story. We get to see the inside of the five-time WCW champ's home. I wonder if he nails a pair of gloves on the wall after every spinaroonie, like Willie Mays Hayes.

Lotty I agree that the WCW title is pretty much meaningless. But if they said that the loss of Benoit was the begining of the end of WCW that would make Benoit seem important. Shit Hogan is still the WCW champ along with Benoit if you want to be technical and I am not saying there should be a Hogan/Benoit feud. What Vince should do is have the balls to say that getting rid of Hart is what let the WWF become #1 again. Even though that is true it takes an awful lot of explanation so I guess it's not a good idea.

I don't think Benoit never losing the WCW title is very important to anyone at this point. Why can't he get in the main event because he's... a really good wrestler?

I still don't understand why absolutely everyone seems to think that Benoit is the obvious ultimate answer to everything and that if they'd just give him the title and let him dominate every other wrestler in the fed that everything would turn around for the WWE and world peace would form and everyone would love each other and blah, blah, blah.

Is everyone afraid they'll lose their Smark Card if they don't verbally fellate the Gap-Toothed robot every chance they get? What about the way that Kurt Angle has carried the entire company on his back since nearly the first time he showed up on TV?

But Deity forbid I insinuate that Benoit isn't perfect or that Angle might be better.

There is no God, only Benoit.

Whoa there, hero. You'll give yourself an ulcer. I'm not saying anything about Angle here- he is, in my opinion, just as good as Benoit, if not better, but Angle is one of the top guys in the company and has spent a good amount of time with the title belt, whereas Benoit hasn't gotten a chance to wear the strap yet. If you actually watch WWE, you'd know that Benoit puts on fantastic matches, and I personally think that should earn him a spot as a top guy in the WWE.

And, hey, I'm an Angle mark, too, but he's hardly carried the company on his back since he came on TV. That's a ridiculous statement. You think people tuned in to see Angle more than they did Austin, Rocky or the Undertaker? You can verbally fellate Angle all you want, but try to make truthful statements. There's plenty of great shit about Angle to praise without telling stories.

Quoth Jake "You think people tuned in to see Angle more than they did Austin, Rocky or the Undertaker?"

Actually, while I would be willing to give you the first two, I would seriously doubt more people were tuning in to see the Undertaker than Kurt Angle over the last 12 months. While I'm not going to say no one cares about watching UT (some poor deluded souls still do, god help them), seems to me people like to hate Angle's character more than anyone elses, which I think helps pull in the viewers.

While people tune in to see the faces, it's often the heels who make the show entertaining.

The September 1998 issue of WCW/nWo magazine (which also doubled as the "program" for an August 22, 1998 house show here in Green Bay) had a feature, "At Home with Booker T," featuring Book's car, pool table, dogs, polishing a set of his boots, and a Madden '98 for PlayStation duel with his then-14-year-old son, Brandon.

Sadly, despite the virtual Troy Aikman getting knocked out in the 1st half, Booker's Cowboys beat Brandon's Packers, 43-13. *sigh*

Lucky for me that magazine also buried a treasure in-between all the "letters to the editor" from uber-marks...a picture of Spice in a leopard-print bikini top and shorts, high heels...and holding a cat o'nine tails whip. Yeah, baby!
