    Didn't really hurt Turner much not like the guy didn't have the cash.. letting Nash and Hogan have as much creative control as they did was what really hurt.
    Great point.

    And yea, WCW had so many problems it wasn't funny. It's really the story of how fast can you burn a billion bucks.

    I saw him fight for the first time not to long ago. Yeah he is an outstanding wrestler. He lives up to the hype. That being said I'm really indifferent if he comes to UFC or stays with Bellator.

    if I only
    once could
    kiss you
    I'd be happy
    for one moment
    of my lifetime
    I'd be there.

    Yup and quite a few knowledgeable wrestlers in WCW at the time would also back up that claim. However still the NWO was the best thing that ever happened to WCW>
