    He had a character tailor made for the Attitude era- was money on the stick, and understood psychology in and out of the ring

    He could no longer go like once did in the ring due to injuries but that didn’t affect Austin

    Genuinely think he’d have flip flopped between face and heel, leading to World Title run or two in 98/99

    Thoughts?

    Austins injuries were nowhere as bad as pilman.

    He's likely would've been released. His injuries had build up.

    I couldn't see him progressing beyond his mid card spot on the card. He had a great mind for the business though, so may have had a place behind the scenes once finished in ring.

    I don't think his in ring career would have lasted much longer than it did unfortunately.

    Well let's see..
    He signed in 1996 to presumably a three year deal. He was 34 and when he died in 1997 he was 35...

    Maybe he could have wrestled for another 5 years. Maybe a bit longer depending on his body. That would bring him up to 2002 and with the whole invasion angle he could have been lost in the shuffle.

    Who knows what could have happened. Maybe in 1999 he could have went back to wcw and ended his career there?
    Maybe he could have worked a fued with then champion Austin at some point.

    In any case dying at 35 is too young.

    He'd have been fired. Was on a proper downward spiral by all accounts.
