Re: 14 day free WWE Network trial 😛
WCW was winning the ratings from 96 - 98 mainly due to the NWO, but they let Hogan mess them up too much. In 97 they did Sting vs Hogan and had been building Sting as the thorn to the NWO for ages but Hogan would not "job" to him clean and let him win the title.
The established stars were holding the up and comers back too much like Jericho jumped from WCW to WWF and went from nobody to major star over night.
The WWF always had some major feuds going on and the McMahons from 97 - early 2000's were involved.
The biggest and I mean biggest waste of a genius idea that they threw out of the window was when CM Punk beat John Cena on the night his contract ran out for the title in his home town of Chicago.
They could have done an amazing angle on that for months, with CM Punk being seen "going to" other smaller wrestling promotions and sitting in the crowd with the belt etc. but after 2 weeks they bought him back.
