agree about Goldberg, turning him heel was a bad move....i think that was on Russo, but i also wont be shocked if Bischoff did that too...i wish i knew who came up with that one. As for the New Blood angle, i felt that it was too big a group...i think Russo should've had his heels and Bischoff should've had his guys and it should've been just 5 guys and let those guys feud....while the other guys did their thing. Kidman shouldnt have been in the New Blood, he should've been a midcarder doing his own thing and getting fans on his side chasing the US title. to me that is THE reason WCW died, AOL/Time Warner. they didnt want the show and they sold it to WWE instead of a guy who would've attempted to do something with it. i agree with Russo...i dont think he's a bad writer, just bad at booking wrestling matches. as a story teller, he's not bad there because he's got insane ideas that can work, but booking matches he's bad at because there's too much things going on during the match. As for AOL/Time Warner, they could've sold it to Bischoff or another promoter, but they wanted it off of them as fast as they could because they didnt like or get wrestling. plus it wasnt getting them money, BUT according to some wrestlers, WCW Nitro was their number one rated show. the problem with Goldberg's heel turn was 1) he was their top face...2) it then left their top faces being Nash and Hogan (yeah i figured you wont like that). i would say Steiner, but he turned heel a month later!!! Goldberg turning heel to me confuses me because i could see Eric being behind this (see Hogan and Bash at the Beach).
