Hi Scott, Hot take: Dr. D was awesome. In a world where he doesn’t take Stossel’s head off, what was his ceiling as top guy?
I think he already hit it. He made some money with Hogan in the AWA and then did a few matches with him in the WWF as the challenger of the week. He wasn't going any further than that and he wasn't going to navigate the political minefield of the WWF given his obvious mental issues, so it's just as well he got out of the business when he did.
