Why “Because WCW?”

We say “because WCW” because it's an easy answer…but why?

What was it about this southern-based territory that made them make chronically bad booking and business decisions against multiple eras, management regimes, and even ownership? Hell, even Vince McMahon failed with WCW. What gives?

…because WCW?

I think that it was mostly because the company was owned by a TV station who were solely concerned with the bottom line and not any kind artistic integrity for the product.  Say what you will about Vince but he spent years as a hyper-perfectionist towards his business.   I don’t think anyone in charge of WCW ever had that kind of vision or drive.
