Worst booker ever
By Scott Keith on 6th August 2021
Other than Vince Russo in WCW & Vince Russo in TNA, who was the worst executive decision maker regarding creative direction in a major wrestling promotion?
Mid-late 80s Verne Gagne in AWA
Post-1985 Fritz Von Erich in WCCW
1988 Dusty Rhodes in JCP
1990 Ole Anderson in WCW
1991 Jim Herd in WCW
1995 Vince McMahon in WWF
2010 Eric Bischoff/Hulk Hogan in TNA
Present Day Vince McMahon in WWE
To be fair, Fritz wasn't really in charge of booking as such, it was mostly talent like Gary Hart. I think you have to go with Verne overall, though, for taking a national promotion into the toilet in record time, even accounting for Vince stealing all his talent. He was just never able to adjust or hire people who knew how to adjust.
