recognized as a bust. What I don't understand are all the people in
the comments of the Starrcade 87 thread that think the guy was an
idiot for accepting the push.
He was already well past 42 when he got the title, and earned main
event pay throughout his reign. The exposure probably increased his
booking rate when he left JCP, and may have helped him land the cushy
WWF gig that gave him enough savings to retire comfortably. Why on
earth should he have passed up on that?
