Vince Russo and many other people in WCW made decisions that caused the company to fail. However there was also many disputes with time warner, CNN, and Ted Turner. So WCW had no choice but to sell, they could have came back.

They let the talent get too involved, with Kevin Nash etc booking himself.

When Vince Russo came to WCW things were good, but when he booked the Fingerpoke of Doom it started ruining all of WCW's credibility and it made their ratings go down all thanks to Mankind winning the WWF Title and January 4th will go down as one of the most controversial days in Wrestling History as both companies saw changes, but the WWF got the good and WCW got the bad.































Basically to make a long story short Russo tried to do the same he did in WWF but 10x faster, meaning alot of title changes and alot of heel turns, with storylines that made no sense and were mostly unfinished. Russo tried and thought he would succeed but little did he know it would make WCW go downhill and it would eventually lead to it's demise after the Time Warner / AOL Merger since nobody wanted WCW so it had to go out of business, and that all led to WWF purchasing WCW and the Invasion Storyline began.































Basically Russo was trying to turn WCW into the WWE. He tried to turn it into something it's not. He tried bringing the Attitude Era into WCW but their demographic wasn't into it and WCW's ratings soon crashed and like I said it's true demise was the Merger. So Russo helped kill WCW but the true killing of WCW was the merger.

i don't think vince Russo was the sole reason for it collapsing, but he must take some blame, for the worst writing in history at least, Eric Bishoff is not totally blameless, i mean he built wcw from nothing to a great company during the mid to late 90's, some great matches happened, then the turn of the Millenium and wcw went into the grave, the place was like a huge atm, loads of money being paid out, but what was really coming in, one simple thing, nWo, they changed wrestling and nothing has even come close to that since, wcw sucked so much in the last two years of it being around, it was just a sinking ship, nothing could of saved it, to be honest, as soon as Bishoff hire Russoo, he singed his own death warrent and let Russoo destroy his baby. The bad writing has to be one of the big reason why it sunk.































I tell you what the worst thing ever was, Ruso making Jaret laying down for hogan, it was the biggest pile of crap ive ever seen, and im glad Hogan didnt't accept, 1, it would of killed wcw there and then and hogan didn't want that, and 2, It would have made hogans career worthless, but it was alot of crap like that that made WCW finally sink for good.
