The linage of the World heavyweight title is a bit of a strange one. Sometimes the WWE recognise it as the WCW title and the long history attached to it. Then sometimes they remember that David Arquette and Vince Russo are former holders and then say its a different title and that it started with HHH.
They regonise the US title's WCW history and they've adopted the old WCW cruiserweight title but the world/WCW is a little grey..ish..
The whole premiss of differentiation doesn't make this topic fair. The World Championship is the World Championship. Lex Luger was a World Champion. That is a fact. Just because he won the title in a different company doesn't change the fact that he was still the possessor of the title. True that history is written by the victors (WWE), but the title that Dolph holds is still the same Wolrd Heavyweight Championship Luger won.
Mr. Perfect, as mentioned above, is a much better candidate for this list since he never held either title. William Regal as well.
I agree about Jake not needing the title during his major feuds. I grew up rooting for Mr. Perfect and was always frustrated to see him lose his world title matches. As for the Bulldog, I think he would have eventually taken the title had he lived longer.
I absolutely LOVED reading this blog. Beginning to end, you not only put the time and effort into writing an absolutely insane blog, but you captured my attention. This was sheer gold! What with ending the blog, with the Bischoff sneered smile, followed by "It ain't over", you've captured the essence of what the Invasion, should and could have been.
"Lets hope someday in the future another company grows to threaten the WWE, and when one takes over the other, then an Invasion story is done properly."
^^ Perfect f*cking ending! Thanks for the exceptional read, it was a pleasure.
Awesome read! I don't know about Austin going back to being "Stunning" Steve Austin, because it would hurt his merchandise, and by this point he had cemented his legacy as Stone Cold. Loved it, anyway! Loved the idea of Bischoff and Flair running WWF with Vince after the invasion, it truly would have been an epic storyline, and perfect for setting up the nWo's arrival in the WWF. Going back to the Austin storyline, I always felt that it would have been a great idea if Austin left the WWF side, but didn't join WCW or ECW, and went after EVERYONE! That would have been awesome! WWF vs. WCW vs. ECW vs. Stone Cold Steve Austin. Anyway, if the WCW/ECW Invasion happened like this, it would have been nothng short of the most epic storyline in pro wrestling history...hands down. 10/10
Of course, this all depends on people willing to accept buy outs as well as being prepared to work with people who they didn’t get on with in WCW. Flair and Biscoff didn't get on at all and Scott Steiner rubbed a few people the wrong way, but money can help people forget
Here's your problem. Not everybody in the wrestling world are sell-outs who do everything for a buck like Diesel of Scott Hall. Thank god for that!
I would of rather them purchase eve have the invasion angle then once they lost at survivor series break away and keep WCW as its own productand and old PPVs and catch up at a mania and survior series once a year. but unfortantly that ego will get the better of Vince and he would make it seem like a lesser product
