You mentioned that Bam Bam was main eventing with Hogan and managed to muck it up by Year's end. What happened? I remember being a fan of his as a child and then he disappeared for like 6 years..
He came in with a big push and immediately started bigtiming everyone and bragging about his paydays according to some accounts. He wasn’t well liked by people who could have helped him stay out of trouble (Andre for example) and also got injured a lot. So it was an easy call for Vince to dump him. He had upside but Ultimate Warrior was already being pegged for #1 babyface and Hulk already had a million fat guys lined up to legdrop on the heel side, so really he had no leverage at that point.
