Huge flops during a hot period
By Scott Keith on 19th April 2021
What are memorable massive misfires (storylines, pushes, concepts) during a promotion's hot period? My nominees:
– Jeff Jarrett's strange heel/face/tweener storyline with the 4 Horsemen in 96/97 in WCW. NWO was red hot and no one cared about this weak oldschool crap.
– Brawl 4 All in mid-1998 during one of the greatest and most entertaining times in WWF history
– young up-and-comer Sam Houston getting a hard push in 1986 NWA/WCW, with some of the worst promos ever. Gone soon after
– The brutally bad hillbilly stuff in 1985 WWF with Uncle Elmer's wedding and co. Vince = Vince
What do you say?
