When Bret Hart first turned heel and joined the NWO, was the original plan to have him to slowly ‘steal’ influence away from Hogan and then kick him out?
If that is so, what made WCW turn back from that plan? I mean, Bret Hart’s defection to the NWO was an easy choice, but if I was to book it, having Bret usurp power from Hogan would be the way to go.
I know, I know, the politics backstage are crazy, but that idea would have breathed new life into that storyline for at least two more years, not to mention Hogan’s and Nash’s relevance in the business. I believe this is what the Bullet Club have done to all leaders, which is why they are still staying afloat.
If not, then I still wouldn’t take credit for thinking about the idea just now; someone, or everyone, for that matter, would have had that idea with them. However, it does prove that I have at least traces of a brain to pass Basic Stable Booking 101 and that the WCW crack-job booking team are, well, full of crack.
How would you book it?
