The final in the tournament to crown a new WCW United States Heavyweight Champion, during a PPV that had FOURTEEN matches on the card.

Scotty Riggs Pinup Poster - WCW Magazine [September 1997]
The American Males, Riggs’ tag team with Marcus Bagwell, dissolved once Bagwell left his partner behind to join the ranks of the New World Order. On his own, Riggs continued wrestling in his pretty-boy gimmick until being “injured” at the hands of Raven during a drop-toe-hold into a chair spot.
The narcissistic, vain All-American Male was forced to wear an eye patch and in his own mind, became a social outcast leaving him with the only option but to join Raven’s Flock as Riggs.

So good.

Jake “The Snake” Roberts WCW Promo Shot [1992]
As far as I understand, “The Snake” left the WWF for WCW due to being promised a big money contract from Kip Frey to come in and work against Sting. However upon arrival, Frey had been replaced by “The Cowboy” Bill Watts who sat Roberts down with a different contract that cut the pay he was promised tremendously. Some details of the events have Watts shredding the contract in front of Jake whenever he presented him with the new one.
If you look around online regarding this story, you’ll find talk about it being a personal thing against Roberts due to Watts not liking him. In actuality, Bill Watts came in and cut the salaries of several other wrestlers in an effort to restructure WCW. In the end, Jake Roberts ended up checking himself into rehab after the horrendous Coal Miner’s Glove Match against Sting at Halloween Havoc 1992. and that was all she wrote for “The Snake” working for World Championship Wrestling.

Such a travesty that we never got a WCW Meets The X-Men crossover Marvel one-shot. I’d imagine that Sting and Cyclops would have gotten along like circus people.
