Just re-watching Savage's last WCW appearances and reminded myself about this segment where he names his successor...and nothing came of it. Any idea who it was supposed to be or what was going to happen? You seem to have a good idea about...everything.
P.S. Please say it was Luger.
That whole period was just a mess of week-to-week booking, especially Macho Man's stuff. Much like that week on Thunder where they had the battle royale and Savage randomly appeared and then was never mentioned again.
