In lieu of Survivor Series being dropped, there's a survey from WWE about future pay per view concepts. These new ideas they're exploring including bringing back old WCW pay per view concepts.

http://www.wweresearch.com/se.ashx?s=0B8801401E2BC294

You can vote on your interest in:

WWE Draft
Battle Bowl(!)
Money in the Bank
Roulette (like RAW Roulette)
Tournament (King of the Ring or something else?)
War Games
WWE Legends
Street Fight.

War Games would be sweet. That's probably the one WCW PPV that people have been clamoring for since WWE bought WCW.

I always liked RAW Roulette so the Roulette idea is interesting.

And Battle Bowl. I'm in, but only if Sgt. Buddy Lee Parker gets beat up and crawls to the ring only to get pinned.

Some of the other ideas are not so good.

The Draft is dumb. Pay $50 to find out Mark Henry was sent to Smackdown and Zack Ryder was sent to RAW.

What's the point of a Money in the Bank PPV when there's already TLC? Plus why have a PPV of people fighting for a title shot instead of getting title shots?

I'm showing old WCW tendencies I suppose, I rated War Games the highest, Battle Bowl #2, and then Roulette #3.

The rest of them I have no desire to see, plus, why would you wanna take the draft away from Raw?

I categorically did and thought the exact same things.

I wonder: Did Dusty Rhodes suggest the Bunkhouse Stampede? Followed by suggesting booking himself to win it?

I voted for War Games.
Probably the best idea Dusty ever had.

I voted War Games as the best as well.

Some of these would be okay, but some of them - especially the draft - would be just fine as a special three-hour Raw, but aren't really worth paying for.

Getting people to pay for Battle Bowl or Raw Roulette seems doubtful, since Cyber Sunday/Usenet Tuesday always tanked; evidence that people won't pay when they don't know the card.

Legends matches are fun, but a whole show of Legends matches might be overkill.

I like Money in the Bank as part of WM, but I wonder if combining MitB and King of the Ring might work for a PPV. The problem with KotR is that fitting seven tournament matches (4 quarterfinals, 2 semis, and the final) on a PPV doesn't leave you time to add title matches or anything else, but only having three tournament matches (2 semis and the final) makes the final victory less than impressive. Maybe win a qualifying match on TV to get to the PPV, win a qualifying match on PPV to get to a ladder match main event, and win the ladder match to become king?

Tge Survivor Series was good years ago when it was always teams for four or five, elimination style...nothing else.

I say bring back the King of The Ring.

They don't do a very good job of explaining it, but WWE Legends is intended to be the first largely-CGI professional wrestling PPV and will use the budget that had been set aside for the WWE animated series that was announced in 2008. It was originally pitched as "Untold Tales of Professional Wrestling", but they were worried about Raw guest hosts mangling the name, so they shortened it.

If it wins the poll, expect to see CGI recreations of the 1979 Intercontinental Title Tournament from Rio, the full hour-long Hogan vs. Giant match from 1/13/97 in WCW and a recreation of Bossman raising the briefcase backstage at King of the Ring 1999. The animators have been working on this for some time now. Word is, they need months to do the CGI work, and the only break the animation team has had from putting this material together are the news reports they did on Tiger Woods and Conan O'Brien for NMA News.

That idea makes me dislike the concept even more. I'm disappointed all in all that they're scrapping the Survivor Series name...it was one of the big 4 for as long as I can remember.

War Games is probably just on the list to placate the old school fans. I doubt Vince would promote anything created by Dusty Rhodes. (Aside from Cody and Dustin, that is.)

That was just absolutely wonderful. The Giant v. Hogan match made this a million billion stars.

Could they at least do a split screen though for those of us who want to watch the episode of Robin Hood?

So I had no idea what you were referencing here and a Google search led me to this transcript of an online Q&A Eric Bischoff did via Prodigy in 1997 (accessed via Google cache as the page doesn't appear to exist anymore). I found it fascinating to read; I can't believe this was so long ago. I hope the powers that be don't mind me quoting this at length (and that others find it as interesting as I do!):


    Moderator: Welcome everyone, WCW Executive Vice-President Eric Bischoff is here to take your comments and questions.

    Question: I cannot imagine many Nitro viewers were thrilled having to sit through nearly forty minutes of "Robin Hood" to view a couple minutes of Hogan/Giant. Did you attempt to anticipate Nitro fan reaction beforehand and if so, was your anticipation included in your business decision to work with TNT the way you did?

    Eric Bischoff: First of all, it's clear that a lot of fans were frustrated and/or disappointed in the manner in which we promoted and delivered the Hogan/Giant match on Monday night. Clearly it wasn't our intention to disappoint anyone. I want to apologize to anyone who was disappointed or frustrated by our efforts. That being said, the fact that Time Warner and TNT approached WCW and asked for help in launching their new series was a great opportunity for us. Under the circumstances, we felt it was in our best interest to help with the networks efforts.

    Question: HI ERIC is it true you bought tickets for hall and nash to sit at royal rumble as it was reported at wcw hotline?

    Eric Bischoff: That's absolutely not true.

    Question: Eric - Will we see a HOGAN vs. STING Match on PPV at either SUPERBRAWL or UNCENSORED?

    Eric Bischoff: I doubt you will see that match at either of those events, but it's inevitable we will have that match at some point, more than likely this year.

    Question: Were you aware that Nitro would only be shown every other commercial?

    Eric Bischoff: I wasn't clear on which commercial breaks the match was going to be shown in, and that decision was out of my hands.

    ...

    Question: Have you seen SSN? Either ways, from seeing it or hearing about it, what are you thoughts on the show?

    Eric Bischoff: I've seen clips of the show, and I think it's an embarassment to an organization that professes to be the leader in family entertainment. I think it's going to further erode the image of our industry among advertisers and television executives, as well as the public who stumbles upon it. To date, it is the most obvious sign of desparation the WWF has exhibited in the past 2 years. It amazes me that Vince McMahon continues to use blasphemy and sex to try to cram his product down the throats of the viewing public in the name of family entertainment.

    Question: What is your opinion on how long the NWO can exist before it becomes stale in the fans' eyes?

    Eric Bischoff: I remember answering that question in this forum approximately 2 months ago. I didn't have the answer then, and don't have it now. All I can tell you is that merchandise continues to increase in sales, ratings continue to increase. Two of our last 3 PPV's were all time revenue record generating PPVs. Arenas are at all time highs. So, it's working and it's working well. The audience doesn't seem tired of it, and I can't predict when it will die. It's NWO4LIFE after all.

    Question: In the new issue of WWF magazine there is an interview with Marc Mero-Johnny B Badd who states that through his first three years in WCW he was never once tested for drug use. What are your thoughts and answers to this statement?

    Eric Bischoff: I'll be anxious to check my records when I get back to my office tomorrow morning to see if that's just another one of the inconsistencies of Marc Mero's world.

    ...

    Question: What do you think of Saturday Night Shotgun, and the Fondle-Me-Elmo skit?

    Eric Bischoff: I'll repeat what I said before. It's the debths of bad taste, particularly when a Mattel commercial follows a skit like that. It's the typical Vince McMahon "genius".

    Question: Eric, how come live WCW action hasen't been coming to New York? Will live WCW action ever come to New York in the near future?

    Eric Bischoff:>Eric Bischoff

    ic Bischoff

    hoff (Speaker) Vince McMahon has been able to keep us out of arenas like Madison Square Garden by virtue of a unique contract he has with them. We do intend to challenge that, and to move some of our events into the New York area and into the Northeast in general.

    Question: Hey Eric, what are you going to do when the NWO falls apart, and the Nitro ratings start to diminish??That's the only reason most watch Nitro!

    Eric Bischoff: I don't know that that's true. The NWO is a big reason why people watch, but if you look at the quarter hours, some of the best numbers come during the Lex Luger segments and the cruiserweight segments. I think it's unfair not to give other people some credit.

    Question: Will we be seeing more of JJ Dillon in the weeks to come?

    Eric Bischoff: I don't know that you've seen any of him to begin with. I'm not really sure. JJ's pretty busy with his office duties.

    Question: Just curious on your thoughts on both "Mean" Gene Okerlund and Mark Madden.. thanx and continued success...

    Eric Bischoff: I think Mark Madden is a loose cannon, who's mouth can sometimes get him in trouble. Gene Okerland is a professional to work with and I enjoy working with him.

    ...

    Question: Eric, When is the NWO going to turn on Hulk Hogan? You know they will, its only a matter of timer... You make a great heel.. Are people booing or cheering you.. Be honest :}

    Eric Bischoff: I don't think the NWO is going to turn on Hulk Hogan anytime soon. There seems to be a close relationship with everyone. Don't assume it will happen anytime soon. Generally, I would say the fans reaction to me depends on which market we are in. I'd prefer not to go back to Charlotte and make an entrance to that crowd again. It depends on the market.

    Question: Eric what do you think of stars Like Shawn Micheals, Sabu, Taz, Brett Hart and other Pure real wrestlers. Would you like to bring them to WCW/nWo and If so what in what way? DDP Rules!

    Eric Bischoff: I find it ironic that someone would throw Taz and Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels in the same category and refer to the group as real wrestlers. Everyone knows that I would love to have Bret Hart on our roster. He's not only a phenomenal talent, but one of the class acts in our industry both in and out of the ring. I'm not sure Shawn Michaels would ever fit on our roster, and don't know enough about Taz to have an opinion. I've only seen brief clips of him.

    ...

    Question: In the past, you've claimed you don't watch ECW. But if men such as Malenko, Guerrero, Mysterio, etc, never wrestled in ECW, do you think they'd be in WCW today?

    Eric Bischoff: Absolutely. I had a chance to watch all of them wrestle in New Japan in person, and had a chance to meet all of them before it ever registered that they were a regular part of ECW. They are in WCW primarily because of my exposure to them in New Japan which I see much more of than ECW. People should remember that Dean Malenko was associated with New Japan for nearly 13 years. It's unfair to suggest that it's only because of ECW that Dean got an opportunity.

    Question: With the NWO angle seemingly getting worse as the months go by and the WWF's new "hardcore" look on Shotgun Saturday Night what can we expect from the WCW when the NWO has come to its finish?

    Eric Bischoff: You are certainly welcome to your opinion, but all the indications from merchandise to PPV buy rates to Arena attendance shows that the angle is doing anything but getting stale...despite your personal opinion. If a transvestite giving birth and Sunny falling in bed with a muppet is your idea of hardcore, you are welcome to that as well as your opinion. By the way....their Flying Nuns were the 'hardest core' thing I have ever seen. LOL

    Question: what do you think about the wwf's new show "shotgun saturday night"?

    Eric Bischoff: >From what I've seen it's probably the worst thing that has been produced in our genre in the last 10 years. I wouldn't be surprised if Jim Ross, Vince McMahon and Bruce Pritchard aren't all standing in the ring biting heads off chickens to try to get a rating.

    ...

    Question: Hi Eric......thanks for coming aboard......Question #1-----A few months ago you promised that the NWO would get what's coming to them. Have you done exactly what you've planned to do or have problems arisen to change those plans.

    Eric Bischoff: They got what was coming to them....they got me. I love those guys...I really do.

    Question: Will WCW's other television shows besides Nitro, like Saturday Night, Worldwide & Pro ever be taped from other arenas instead of being taped at Disney? I think it would be better that way..

    Eric Bischoff: Saturday Night is already taped at arenas around the country. Saturday morning and Sunday are both taped at Disney and may be taped at other venues based on the availability of Disney.

    Question: what are going to do about the wreslers who dont convert to nwo

    Eric Bischoff:hoff

    >

    I've given all of them an opportunity to make a wise decision. Those that have have a secure future. Those that haven't will suffer the consequences and we'll let the chips fall where they may.

    Question: Eric, What so you think about the rumors about the warrior joining the War againdt the NWO?

    Eric Bischoff: An icecubes chance in hell.


I love seeing big talk from Bischoff knowing what happened in the end. I don't know why. Also, LOL at Bischoff saying LOL.
