Corporate mergers, anyone?,
A Kid's Review
This review is from: The Death of WCW (Wrestlecrap) (Paperback)
Far too much blame is placed on WCW management and their booking decisions. The corporate mergers which placed major restrictions on what Bischoff and his fellow executives could do creatively are barely touched upon.

Did you even read the book? I think you've been watching too many self-serving shoot interviews with Eric Bischoff and Kevin Nash, where they always inevitably says what you just said... the mergers and their impact are QUITE CLEARLY covered in the book. Being asked to create a family-oriented product is no excuse for appalling booking and storylines like David Arquette and Vince Russo becoming WCW Champions.

'A Kid's Review' - so right. This book went in-depth into the mergers. The problem was that the mergers took place AFTER WCW had lost $62m in a single year, AFTER they'd seen ratings and buyrates tank, and AFTER almost all their key talent had jumped ship.
I don't care how big a WCW fan you are, it's ridiculous to suggest it was the merger that killed WCW. It was Hogan, Nash and Bischoff that killed WCW because they limited THEMSELVES on what they could do creatively by refusing to push new talent. End of argument.
