This is SteveOB, minimal commenter, on the blog.
First, I need to request a plug for mine and my friends Springsteen blog, www.legendsofspringsteen.com. You've plugged for us before, and we greatly appreciate it. If you, or anyone else here are going to any of Springsteen's upcoming shows let us know. We'd love to hear from you.
Secondly, I have been watching a lot of early 90's WCW ppvs on the network. The pre-Hogan stuff is pretty great with Flair, Sting, The Steiners and Pillman. But man once Hogan and the Dungeon of Doom hits things turn awful. My question though is: Why Kevin Sullivan? It seems all the other heels were proven WCW draws (Flair, Vader, Luger) or guys Hogan brought in to work with (Earthquake, Kamala, Beefcake). Sullivan was never a WCW main eventer, and as far as I know wasn't one of Hogan's guys. He doesn't have a good look (a short, chubby, balding man from Boston) and isn't very good on the mic, but gets put into a feud with their #1 face that lasted for years!? Also, why did WCW bring in retired foreign wrestlers like Haystacks Calhoun and King Curtis Iaukea to join the dungeon? Couldn't they find anyone else on their massive roster to take those spots?
God, I hate the Dungeon of Doom.
Thanks again, Scott!
