Jerry Jarrett начело на WCW 2000

Първо малко предистория. За незапознатите: Jerry Jarrett е бащата на Jeff Jarrett, съосновател на TNA и един от най-успешните booker-и в историята на американския кеч. Jerry няколко десетилетия бе начело на кеча в Memphis, където не само, че постигна огромни финансови успехи, но и роди един куп революционни за времето си идеи. Освен това, Jerry Jarrett е човекът, в чиито ръце Vince McMahon повери WWF по време на стероидния скандал в началото на 90-те, което трябва да ви говори много за мнението на Vince относно Jerry... И не на последно място, Jerry Jarrett е един от хората, които се опитаха да купят WCW през 2001 и до ден днешен си остава мистерията защо тъпите парчета в AOL Time Warner продадоха WCW на Vince McMahon за някаква си мизерна сума от 3-4 милиона долара или там колкото бяха вместо да вземат офертата на Jerry Jarrett, която е била за 70 милиона... Vinnie Mac пак е снасял пари под масата. ;) Kaкто и да е. Тази тема тук е за друго. В скорошно shoot interview Jerry Jarrett се нагърби със задачата да fantasy book-не WCW през 2000. Идеята е, че Jerry поема контрола над WCW през април 2000 вместо Bishoff & Russo. Ето как Jerry Jarrett би направил нещата (кратък преразказ на shoot interview-то):

The premise that they take for the DVD is what if Jerry took over in April of 2000 instead of Bischoff and Russo. They also took the liberties that Jerry had the final say in who does what.

Jerry's first step: Release the entire roster. He would hold a meeting with everybody saying that the current contracts (guaranteed deals) are not beneficial to programming or business. Anybody that wants to pursue a job with Vince is free to do so, no questions asked. But if anybody wants to stay on board, "I'm going right across the hall into my office, and we'll talk". He'd then end the meeting, go to his office, and pray that at least 20 out of the 60 or so people under contract show up in his office.

This is the list of the guys he would hope stayed:

AJ Styles

Barry Horowitz

Billy Kidman

Booker T

Brian Knobbs

Chavo Guerrero

Chris Candido

Curt Hennig

Don Harris

Dustin Rhodes

Elix Skipper

Elizabeth

Evan Karagias

Hulk Hogan

Jeff Jarrett

Jim Duggan

Jimmy Hart

Juventud Guerrera

Kevin Nash

Konnan

Lex Luger

Meng (Haku)

Rey Mysterio

Ric Flair

Rick Steiner

Ron Harris

Scott Steiner

Shane Douglas

Shane Helms

Shannon Moore

Sid Vicious

Sonny Siaki

Stacy Keibler

Stevie Ray

Sting

Tammy Sytch

Tank Abbot

Terry Funk

Torrie Wilson

Vampiro

The mainstay names he didn't say were Goldberg, DDP and Buff Bagwell.

He would dissolve the Cruiserweight, Hardcore, and Television titles, and go only with the World, US, and Tag titles. The main feuds would be Hogan/Sid for the World Title, Harlem Heat vs. Harrises for the Tag titles, and Jeff Jarrett vs. Curt Hennig for the US Title. The main feuds would go down like this:

Sid (who is champion) would be demolishing everybody, fighting the Flairs, Nashes, and Stings on the PPVs, and the Douglases, Rick Steiners, and Tank Abbotts on weekly TV. He'd be saying he's the toughest thing out there, and proving it. He's a level beyond everybody. Hogan would cut a promo saying that people have said his time has come and gone, and that he's past his prime. "I don't think so. But if I can't beat Sid, than those critics are right." Implying if he can't be Hulk Hogan one more time, it's no use continuing. Sid would mock Hogan left and right. Then during a face to face confrontation, possibly a contract signing, there would be a staredown... and Hogan would be the first one to flinch. Cast the underlying factor that Hulk Hogan may finally be doubting himself. Spend some time each week with an interview with guys like Nash, Hall (who he would have gone back and hired), Flair, Sting, etc... wondering if Hogan still has it. Then, the week before the big PPV showdown, Hogan comes out in the classic regalia, flexing and doing his schtick. At the math, Sid would dominate the match, but Hogan would make a comeback and win the match and the title.

Jerry believes that The Harrises have never been pushed right in the states. These guys are legit badasses in real life, and most of the time in wrestling they're depicted as goofs. The best wrestling characters are ones that are extensions of real life personas, because the emotion drawn on is more authentic. So he'd push The Harrises (still with the titles) through most of the summer where there would be a showdown with Harlem Heat in the fall. Heat would be the faces and win the titles at that point.

The second tier feud would be between Jeff Jarrett and Curt Hennig. Hennig would win the US Title from Jeff early on, probably April or May, and then fight just about everybody else except Jeff. Jeff would be pushed as an underdog because Jerry believes that's when Jeff is at his best. So Jeff would accuse Hennig of ducking him in promos. Hennig would cut promos talking about his upcoming matches with whomever, and the announcers would ask "Jeff Jarrett says you're ducking him." "Jeff who? I have Scott Hall at the PPV..." Eventually Jeff and Hennig would have a knockdown dragout where Jeff would get the title back with a counter move to keep the underdog aura to him.

Undercard stuff would be Luger vs. Candido (sparked by Tammy's jealousy of Elizabeth's airtime), and a stable feud of 3-Count vs. Filthy Animals.

There's a lot of other stuff in there too (AJ Styles as a protege of Terry Funk, two guys fighting over Stacy Keibler) but that was the stuff that was detailed.

E, какво мислите за този fantasy booking план за WCW през 2000? Какво ви харесва и какво не?

На първо време - интересен сценарий.

С какво не съм съгласен:

Първо: Малко съм против за пореден път идеята: Hulk идва, влиза от ролята на underdog, и накрая успява". Въпреки че, не знам, де.. Може би този път щеше да е било успешно.

Второ - против освобождаването на DDP съм. Доста се съмнявам, че Page е нямало да се съгласи да остане - дори при известно съкращение на заплатата.

Трето - закриването на cruiserweight дивизията - все си мисля, че тя е можело да бъде спасена. Доказателство - краят на 2000 г. и началото на 2001 г. - Chavo, Shane Helms, Billy Kidman и тн.

Плюсове:

Първо - пуш за Harris boys: Винаги ми се е струвало, че Ron и Don са солидни и могат да играят много добре badass образи. Що се отнася до евентуална вражда с Harlem Heat - не съм особен фен. Все пак нали няколко месеца преди това разделяхме Booker T и Stevie Ray..

Второ - завръщане на Scott Hall - човекът определено, ако успее да се задържи "чист", си е шампионски материал. При това говоря за Световна, а не за американска титла

Трето - rub за AJ Styles - инвестиция за бъдещето - малка, забавна вражда, която започва да гради AJ като нещо различно.

Иначе определено би ми било интересно да чуя какви са били плановете за хора като Scott Steiner и Kevin Nash.

Иначе моят малък принос: След края на мача на Spring Stampede, в който Hogan печели титлата, излиза Scott Hall и заявява, че Hogan определено все още е способен и има още кеч в него. Вследствие, на което, според него, заслужава шанс за титлата - нещо, което е получил Nash, но не и той..

В обобщение - дори след "унищожителните" три месеца на 2000 г., във WCW е имало още много вражди и пари, които могат да бъдат спечелени при правилна употреба
