World Championship Wrestling was surging because of the popularity on the nWo angle. WCW was making more money than evwr before thanks to Eric Bischoff convincing Hulk Hogan to be the third man and turning the wrestling world on its ear by turning heel for the first time. The Crow Sting angle was beginning with him up in the rafters and wearing white face paint and trench coats. DDP just turned down Nash and Hall’s offed to join the nWo.
But! Right before nWo Souled Out Eric Bischoff is discovered to have embezzled huge amounts of money from the Turner organization and is fired. You have been hired as his replacement. What would you do differently going forward, knowing what failures and problems Bischoff faced as executive producer and company president, becoming involved in creative and reliance on ages veteran stars as opposed to creating new stars. You inherit the roster the way it exists in January 1997. Who do you push? What do you change? What do you keep the same?
Souled Out takes place on January 25, 1997. The Giant is owed a WCW championship match because he won the battle royal at World War 3. That is the main event to the ppv. You build to the show otherwise however you want. The January 6 episode of Monday Nitro where DDP refused the recruitment effort of the nWo by hitting the Diamond Cutter on Hall and Nash.
Book the Monday Nitro for January 13 and January 20 and Souled Out shows!
