Crush as a replacement for Ax,  I don't dislike Crush, but Ax and Smash were Demolition to me.

Jimmy Jack Funk as a replacement for Terry Funk was brutal.

Mean Mark Callous was a fail for me as a Sid replacement in the Skyscrapers.  He had a great look and was better in the ring than Sid but removing Sid killed the aura for the Scapers.  Sid and Mark would have been a cool version of the Scrapers.

Puke as a replacement for Hawk was pitiful. 

Eddie Gilbert and Tommy Rich as replacements for Steve Keirn and Stan Lane were pretty cruddy.

No way in hell should Bart Gunn and Bob Holly have ever tried to replace anyone that was ever in the Midnight Express. 



Denny told me the original.plan was for Dennis or Stan & Bobby to show up instead of Bart & Bob, but Vince was still pissed bc they didnt jump to the WWE back in the 80s.. Even Jim admitted it was a bad move.


So even though both Stan Lane and Cornette had worked for the WWF in the interim, Vince was still pissed at them for something that happened in the '80's and didn't want them working for him?

That doesn't make sense.


Vince does alot of things that dont make sense. I asked both Denny & Jim about it a few yrs back & they both said the same type of thing. Vince didnt like Lane for some reason & Jimmy suggested either Denny/Bobby or Stan/Bobby & he said Vince said no to both. So, Jimmy didnt have much of a choice & went w/Gunn & Holly.

Jimmy told Vince neither would get over as the MX, but VKM didnt care apparently. He then said that doing "the new MX" gimmick in WWE was one of the worst things he couldve ever done.

From an outsider's perspective, it didn't look like like the WWF was trying to put much muscle behind the NWA thing. As a fan, at the time, it was my favorite thing going. But you could tell that it was never going to amount to anything.

Having said that, it would have been the bomb to see a real version of the Midnight Express appear on WWf TV.

Don Fargo was way better as a Legionnaire than Zarnoff LeBoeff was in Bruiser's WWA.

Supposedly Fargo left the team after he and Rene Goulet had an arguement over Fargo damaging Goulet's car. I'm thinking it had to be more than that.

I have no reason to think Cornette was lying, but didnt this angle go down in early 98?  I mean, Lane was an announcer in 93 and 94 for Vince.  Eaton was pretty much a WCW agent, and Condrey was done.  No offense, because the MX was great in their time, but this would have been a disaster bringing these guys out there.
