I just checked out SuperBrawl I and that match between The Steiners and Sting/Luger was a good match, albeit too short. **** in my opinion. Anyway, Scott Steiner was over HUGE in that match and seemed to be the guy the crowd got behind over Rick, or even Sting and Luger. We all know the story of Scott not wanting to break up the team early in his career, but if he had a change of heart on that, WHEN would have been the right time to pull the trigger on a Scott Steiner run? Would it have been after Flair left for the WWF? Or do you put Steiner over Flair before he leaves? Also, would he have been more effective as a babyface during this initial singles run, or do you turn him on Rick and make him a heel? He cut awful promos back then, so how do you protect him? Does he turn a profit at the top?
I dunno, the early 90s were just too soon for someone who couldn’t cut a promo to save his life at that point. I mean, look at how long it took them to get him to the top once he COULD talk. Remember White Thunder, anyone? I think he might have flamed out pretty quickly as a top guy and been discarded for Flair when he came back. He just didn’t have the charisma at that point in the same way a Sting or even a Luger did.
