So, Ive been watching some late era WCW stuff recently ,and I thought about all the thing things they tried to start, but seemingly, for whatever reason, gave up om.

Berlyn, the Wall, Seven, the Demon. I'm sure there were others.

Were there any gimmicks you felt they gave up on too soon?

Were there any that you felt that were pushed beyond the point of expiration?

The Wall was the first that came to mind for me too.  He beat down Hogan the last week before a booking change (can't remember who was replacing who, they happened so often) and in literally a week a main event program disappeared.

Vampiro is another one.

Lance Storm.  Held 3 titles simultaneously and then just vanished down the card.

The Demon didn't have the full blessing of KISS if I remember it right and had to stop.

 

EDIT:  I didn't remember it correctly.  The Demon gimmick died when Bishoff got shitcanned and then Torborg's contract to be the Demon wasn't renewed. 

Note to self, stop trying to be 'rasslin theoretician.

Anyone in the new blood.  They got the push aborted because the fans sided with the millionaires, who were supposed to be the heels

A funny thing about The Demon was that part of the deal with KISS was that he was to be featured in a set number of PPV main events, resulting in him winning squash matches billed as "special main events" that went on third on the card. Incidentally a gimmick that had, in storyline, been used in Amarillo for Gorgeous George, Jr. who proclaimed himself so popular that he would only wrestle in main events.

He did, but never looked good in any of the matches

What about Glacier? Cool gimmick they killed not long after, same w/Mortis. Also, Lodi & Lenny Lane, those guys were hilarious. Stevie Richards.

The whole Jericho "man of 1001 holds" thing & of course Ralphus, were great too, but they killed it too quickly. Jericho calling JJ Dillon "Jo Jo", used to make me legit laugh.

The Glacier gimmick got killed because Ray Lloyd sucked. Lodi & Lenny Lane was too controversial for Turner's Standard & Practices department.

Jericho got killed because Eric Bischoff didn't like him.

For whatever reasons, they still were aborted, which is what the thread/topic asked for. Glacier "sucked"b/c they stopped hyping him, so it was both parties faults.

Which proves Bischoff doesnt know shit....he hated Austin too & Austin went on to become argueably the biggest star in the history of the biz. Jericho didnt do so bad himself.
