Van Hammer

How did a guy like Van Hammer get so many opportunities in WCW without getting a big push?  I get when they brought him in in 1991, he had a good look and they thought that fans would like him with his Rock n Roll Gimmick, but after a while he just wasn't
any good.

But then WCW brought him back as a member of the Flock, and gave him a Hippie gimmick in the late 90's.  He was probably in WCW for like 5 or 6 years total, maybe more.  Did someone really like him in the office?  Did he ever have any interest from the
WWF?  Seems like a guy Vince would like.

I never heard of anyone in WWE wanting to bring him in.  WCW in general was always looking for their Hulk Hogan or Ultimate Warrior and Hammer was a guy with vague traces of both.
