Give me a classic like the best of 7 series between Booker T and Chris Benoit. Spread across a month it was great drama and good viewing

WCW unfortunately lost the plot when they had about 250 wrestlers under contract (trying to shut down WWE) signed on long term contracts. Many were paid to stay at home. Kevin Nash as a booker also cost them a lot.

THe history of the fall of WCW is very interesting - well worth checking out
I've seen that and it is very interesting, as is Bischoff's book. While he admits to making plenty of mistakes, he was also handcuffed after TimeWarner took over WCW, knowing plenty about entertainment but nothing about wrestling. Dixie Carter has a new half hour interview on Youtube and the TNA site. She provides alot of details about the deal with Hogan, and the future of TNA. One thing she seems intent on, is keeping TNA a wrestling company and not an entertainment company like WWE. I wish her success, I'm rooting for her, Hogan, and TNA!
