Hi Scott, hope you are well.
Oh, Bash 91 destroyed him for good, no doubt. That was supposed to be where Flair put him over once and for all and made him into a superstar, and of course it just didn't happen. Then the giant limited date contract killed his motivation to improve, and the motorcycle accident was probably the finishing touches. Ironic that his biggest victory would be what cemented his reputation in the business as an also-ran, but unfortunately that's what it amounts to.
