People can point to the fact that it was a money pit full of creative pitfalls and stupid ego driven angles, but the real downfall was most likely just the Turner-AOL merger. AOL didn't want to be associated with wrestling, and considering WCW was hemorrhaging money, even Ted couldn't defend it's existence at that point.































If Turner had never merged with AOL, odds are WCW would still be around because Ted Turner loved wrestling. It would be a shell of itself, and horribly booked, and more than likely filled with old wrestlers since they never went out of their way to push new talent (even though the Natural Born Thrillers were awesome). So yeah, I think Ted would've bitten the financial bullet and continued to try and put that white whale McMahon out of business. He might've sunk in the process like Ahab, but he'd probably still be trying.

The People above Eric Bischoff knew absolutely nothing about Professional Wrestling and barely tolerated it.































Bad Storylines and The Wrestlers who were in the main events were not the Wrestlere people really wanted to see.































No upward mpbility for the young up and coming wrestlers.































WCW spent too much money.
