Remember when Chuck Palumbo won the WCW World Title for a minute?

I know there was a promo he did w/ the NBT and Flair.  He said one word.  Flair just booked a match between Jindrak and a mystery opponent.

Palumbo:  Cake.
Flair:  We'll see.

Always kind of made me laugh.  Especially the goofy face he made after quoting the popular dessert.

I thought that was just a dream...

Palumbo was the greatest world champion in the history of this fine sport. His title run was beautiful in it's simplicity.
I watched RAW. I thought it sucked. The usual problems and such.

There seemed to be a lot of good things going on that final year, especially towards the end. Question though. Do you think if they had been able to stick around that the good things would have stuck, or would they have gone back to what people tuned out from?

I think they might've built new people up to be stars but then those people would've eventually stagnated and they wouldn't create anything new causing people to jump ship again. Seems to be the way the business goes.

For some odd reason WCW gave me the idea that Sean O'Haire, Mike Sanders, Chuck Palumbo, Mark Jindrak, Big Vito, and Johnny The Bull were all talented young workers.....WWE sure showed me the error of my ways.(sarcasm off)

I also enjoyed Scott Steiner and Lance Storm's run of doom. It was also during this time that I became a huge General Rection/Hugh Morrus fan to the point where I hoped he would eventually win the WCW title. Only thing I didn't enjoy was the lack of Sting.

Back then I kept thinking how if WCW survived then there would be a huge split in wrestling viewership. All casual and entertainment fans would stick with the WWF and WCW would have all the workrate fans and purists.
