Making his WCW debut, it’s The Big Boss Man!

Seriously, how did WCW think they wouldn’t attract the attention of WWE’s lawyers with this stunt?

License To Get Sued!

    Never forget just how good Rude was at generating true heel heat. Wow.

  2. Dave says:

    I never saw that match before, I didn’t realize he wore the exact same outfit in his first appearance! I’m starting to think WCW was actively trying to get sued at this point.

  3. Drew B says:

    Fought Vader at Spring Stampede 94. Best WCW PPV ever.

  4. Paul Sebert says:

    I forget if it was Spring Stampede but they later did an angle where Nick Bockwinkel stripped him of the gimmick. Big Bubba was a hothead and Bockwinkle wanted his badge on his desk…

  5. ChrisV says:

    Then he redeemed himself by becoming the Guardian Angel, remember.
    I think WCW might have actually got sued over that one….or maybe I am mistaken.

    • "The Big Cheese" Paul Kraft says:

      Not sued, but the Guardian Angels asked them to drop the gimmick because they didn’t want their organization associated with wrestling.

      • Jimbolian says:

        Which led to one of wrestling’s most famous quotes, “Dat refer-EE right der was suppose to be in DA RIIIIIIIIINNNGGGGGGG!!!!”

  6. Arya says:

    I thought it was funny that Rude said he would retire a champion. I am sure he didn’t realize he was going to retire 5 months later. He actually was World Champion too.

  7. Another Dave says:

    As Scott Keith put it: “It’s The Boss! Man, he’s Big!”

  8. MistaMaddog says:

    You’d think they’d learn after the Arachna Man debacle…
