Referee Recalls Death of WCW
In a recent interview with In This Room, former WCW referee Billy Silverman discussed being there when WWE purchased the company:
It was just a different time. It’s just like anything in the real world I guess, per se, that everybody [was] worried about their jobs. There’s only so many jobs and there’s only so many positions.You’ve got 50-70 guys coming in and at some point [WWE] can’t carry that. So everybody was worried about their jobs, even the guys there. And the WCW guys coming in they were just trying to get a spot or keep a spot. It wasn’t a good time to be there. Everybody was worried about their job. Who might get cut, who might not get cut. There was a lot of animosity. Certain friends may not have been so much friends at that point. I just remember it being very much survival of the fittest … in the locker room. I just don’t remember it being a good time. But again, looking back on it, there were just circumstances beyond everybody’s control.
Do I think that Vince McMahon would have been the one [to keep WCW alive]? No, because he just produces a different kind of show. So I don’t believe that he could have kept WCW going. I think that Eric [Bischoff] was a creative genius, but I think [that] all that creative and all that genius somehow just kind of imploded. There was nobody there guiding the ship. There was never any one time where there was a captain, that was who the captain is, and that was who is in charge and we all have to go with the flow. That was always changing, constantly. There never any one influence where it was for a period of time. It just was always changing. So it was always so volatile.
