Good article DrOp;

I've got a couple answers for you. First off, yes BUY WRESTLEMANIA. It won't dissapoint you. Now about the whole glass ceiling thing your talking about. Yes I said glass ceiling get over it. What your saying is the guys from WCW are not taken seriously with the top echelon of the WWF. I say, Why the Hell should they?

Austin and Rock have earned thier spot at the top of the card. When Benoit and Jericho(to a later extent) came over they had to earn their way to the top of the card. So why should the nwo have it any easier. If they did the back would probably complain about politics and you would have what caused the death of wcw.

Anyway what I'm getting at is that I will give up nwo beatdowns and nwo raw if it means the nwo will have to earn their respect and spot with Rock and Austin.

First, thanks for reading. Now, to your points:

I think this nWo angle is different in that much more is expected from it than your average angle. Jericho and Benoit had to earn their spots and they did/have. BUT they also had relative youth/time on their sides. Plus, they are both better workers than anyone currently in the nWo.

That being said, Hogan, Nash and Hall obviously don't have to go through the traditional "earning" period. They are all too old and Vince has paid too much for their services for that. They were expected to make an immediate slash and totally shake-up the TV programs.

I'm still waiting (if I can quote Jodeci).

I just feel that the nWo have been used pretty ineffectively given their limited shelf. So much more could have been done, especially considering that when WM:X-8 rolls around, the biggest thing they've got going (as of right now) is that I expect some interference or a turn from Michaels. Sure, either Austin or Rock will lose, but who out there won't consider it a fluke given their whup-ass segments on TV the past few weeks?

The names HOGAN and ROCK may sell tickets, but good matches with unpredicatable outcomes keep people watching.

But that's just me.

Thanks again.



Two hot dogs, a six pack and a PPV or Wrestling tape. What more could a guy possibly need?!?!

Great column, as always. You hit the nail on the head. I think a good analogy to this can be found in Foley Is Good, when Mick writes about how he discovered most 'autobiographies' are anything but.
