I just read Bret Hart's autobiography. His assessment of how much WCW wasted him (they paid him more than the WWF had paid him as a heavyweight champion immediately beforehand, but never had any idea how to use him in plotlines) is pretty damned depressing to read.
wrestling has plotlines, much like porn does.
Well, yes. And they basically paid him millions of dollars a year to stand in the aisle while other guys' plotlines were advanced. At a time when they were making huge deals out of having wrestlers who had been working for the competition recently, the bookers basically forgot to make a big deal out of the fact that a guy who'd been the WWF champion on Saturday night was on Nitro two days later.
Bret didn't actually show up on WCW television until a month or so after his last WWF appearance. WCW did reference the "Montreal Screwjob" the next night by having the NWO come out to the ring carrying Canadian flags and singing "O Canada" to open the show before announcing that they had signed Hart.
Speaking of depressing, I am reading that libelous tell-all on the Hart Family penned by Diana Hart
Although, if this shit is made up, how come Stu did the foreword?
The British Bulldog was my all-time favorite wrestler. Owen and Davey were my favorite tag-team. I stopped watching wrestling when Owen died, but if I had my way, I'd go out wearing a glittery superhero costume also.
remove the space between the "&s" and the "t="
Bret's autobiography is actually pretty great.
And that's sort-of misleading. WCW use to pay wrestlers flat fees while the WWF/WWE would pay wrestlers very small flat fees, but they would get a big chunk of merchandise sales and whatnot, where the thinking was that it would reinforce their desire to get their characters over with the fans. So, while Austin was contracted for significantly less than Hogan or Hart, he probably wound up with more money just on the basis of all the Austin 3:16 shirts he sold.

I guess this needs to be spelled out every once in a while: guys, the idea behind this site is that we find idiotic things and collect them in one place to laugh at. One starring this submission is the equivalent of watching MST3K and complaining "Man, this movie they're watching sucks!!!"
except wrestling fans are serious

I love you, Hulkster. Don't ever change.
On a related note, the book-on-tape version of Hulk Hogan's autobiography is a fucking goldmine.
