Default wcw jobbers became attitude era legends?

did you know hhh in wcw asked for a push they said no then he left and became 13 times champ, mick foley left wcw after being treated like crap by creative team and eric bischoff and became a 3 time wwe champ plus hardcore legend, brian pillman screwed wcw and bischoff by going from ecw to wwe, stone cold became one off all time best wrestlers ever, personally dx, stone cold, rock, brian pillman, mankind were responsible for the attitude era and wcw going out of business by taking their fans.

Exactly.















WCW basically killed themselves by mistreating amazing talent.















ESPECIALLY Steve Austin.















WCW released the man WHILE he was injured....















And once he went to the WWF, he brought it to it's peak alongside a few others whom the WCW let rot.































I bet they were kicking themselves in the ass once they went out of business.

Austin actually tried to get Bischoff to let him do the Stone Cold persona but Bischoff said no one was gonna pay money to see a redneck in black trunks with a bad attitude. Good call there. He also said that Mark Calaway aka the Undertaker was unmarketable. Good call again.































I actually saw HHH lose to Dustin Rhodes at Starcade 94 in Nashville. Terrible PPV but first one I ever attended. Foley wasn't a jobber in WCW he just never won any major championships and he was put in with a really good fued with Sting at one time. Pillman never amounted to much in WWE sadly because he died not long after getting there, and Austin was never a jobber in WCW, he was a US champ like 2 or three times. And I don't know why you mentioned Rock, he was NEVER in WCW. Ever.

Actually the Attitude Era is a result of Paul Heymen Non of those wrestlers you listed were jobbers in WcW they were not used properly, They won matches Brian pillman Stunning Steve Austin were the Hollywood bondes in WcW they got over in the tag team division. Triple H was a rookie in WcW. he also jobbed in WWF early in his career. Technically speaking the only one who was treated poorly was Mick Foley, Yes Steve Austin was treat bad along with Pillman however, They made names for them selves at the same time.

That is so true, you bring up some good points, WWE was trying to make stars out of midcarders.
