    According to Hall, Douglas was brought in specifically to feud with HBK in what they thought would be standard-setting matches, but it just didn't work out. In that 2000 RF Video interview, HBK said he didn't know why Douglas didn't bring any of the innovative, edgy stuff he was doing in ECW to the WWF (which he later claims as his innovation in the business--but that could have just been the drugs...).

If you asked Douglas what happened he'll tell you they were sandbagging him and trying to bring him down a couple of notches. You get this many egotistical dick heads together and the truth is probably somewhere in between. Shane Douglas will always be one of the most overrated wrestlers in my book.

+1 for Tazz. The guy broke Kurt Angle's STREAK. He was white hot coming in and then they feuded him with a bunch of turds like Bossman. I think Tazz came in expecting an ECW level push and between his attitude and the IWC clammoring for him, the WWF buried him. By the time he would've paid his dues, he was injured.

+1 for Douglas. Heat machine and a great heel. Don't know how he was expected to bring the cutting edge stuff when he was saddled with the stupid Dean Douglas gimmick.

All of the Spirit Squad we killed by that gimmick, I don't care what anyone says.

Prior to the Red Rooster gimmick, Terry Taylor had the appearance of a future NWA Champion.
If Nikita Koloff had stayed heel and Vince had gotten his hands on him, he could have had a hell of a feud with Hogan.
As good as he was, Barry Windham could have been so much more if Vince didn't saddle him with the Widowmaker gimmick in '89. He should have been on top of the card as one of the top 3-4 wrestlers in North America at that point.

When watching that Trading Places match last week I thought to myself that both Goldust and Regal are exactly the kind of excellent midcarders that'll be making up the Hall Of Fame numbers in ten years' time.

Hmm...who never made it "big".

Sam Houston. After watching matches upon matches on WWE On Demand, I'm surprised he didn't make it farther or have high matches up in the cards. Kind of had a Shawn Micheals feel to him before Shawn Micheals.

THAT THE HELL!? They took Bulid A Bridge out? What the hell is there problem? They could have spent the bucks for a song that would be on a DVD FOREVER! Not like some 2002 DVDs that were going to be deleted anyways.
