All those guys were open mic unlike today's largely scripted promo bullshit the shitcom writers saddle guys with. Hell, Austin shot to superstardom during a feud where he lost the only two high-profile matches of the feud to sHitman Hart. Russo's edgy direction and all those characters and performers certainly complimented one another but he'll go down as little more than a lucky hack cocksucker.
Oh' yeah, his WCW days were a travesty. He actually managed to make WCW worse than it already was. That takes some serious, shit-tacular skills.
