If WCW downsized and didn’t try to compete with the WWE I think they could have made a comeback…. Providing that Fusient were willing to help the company out with the large amount of debt incurred.
Put WCW on a different timeslot or better different night to WWE programming. That way the wrestling audience isn’t split- so wrestling fans who would always watch WWE can have the opportunity to watch WCW too on a separate night, which will help boost WCW ratings and potential brand awareness.
Put simply accept that WCW is no.2 - it might take many many years to recover, so be an alternative rather than compete directly.

(Assuming that WWE isn’t interested) Keep Sting, Flair, Booker T, Jarrett, Scott Steiner … some of the oldies with gas in the tank, though negotiate lower contracts when they are up for renewal. With Hogan and Hart well out of the picture before the takeover- the next highest paid guy was Goldberg.
Bring Goldberg back and build the company around him- they need an established star to keep the loyal fans interested.
The concept of guaranteed money contracts must be removed- if some of the bigger WCW stars don’t like it they can lump it. Without an Invasion angle would WWE be interested in paying top dollar for them?

Some of those on big contracts to let go: Kevin Nash, (Hall has already been fired), Sid, Luger and also midcarders being paid more than their worth (say Rick Steiner) should be shredded to make way for younger guys to fill the lower/midcard spots on the roster
As ECW went out of business roughly the same time- bring in some of the ECW guys that WWE didn’t consider until the company folded- namely RVD, Rhyno, Credible, Tajiri. At the time these ECW guys were making less than some of the WCW lower carders had been.
Also scour the Indies for the best young talent- some of the TNA guys (Styles, Roode, Aries, Samoa Joe, Storm, Punk) could Have eventually found their way into a new WCW.
Scouting good new talent on lower wages and shredding some of the dead wood on high wages is key to balancing the books.

When Bischoff first ran the company in 1993- WCW were operating at a loss, he cut costs everywhere he could, filmed shows in the Disney MGM (to cut travel costs) …. It was when the company took off that spending went out of control with huge guaranteed money contracts, and paying silly money for celebrity appearences.
Bischoff should go back to his 1993 logic … recover costs first and then grow slowly from there. Hopefully he would have learned his lessons about over spending.
