Now THAT is how you make a debut. An electric entrance song, a crowd hyped for your arrival because word of you signing leaked on the internet months earlier, and two of the greatest mic artists in the world going toe-to-toe. Oh yeah and a countdown clock which always gets the blood pumping for some reason that must be buried deep within our DNA. I don't know what the hell wrestling looks like these days, but I guarantee it isn't that.
There are a million reasons that WCW ended up bending the knee to Vince McMahon. But losing young studs like Chris Jericho to the WWF because there was no room for them in the main event with recycled nWo vs. WCW matches is definitely a part of it.
