This was the first of the best year and half of Florida State Start ’em Young Raise ’em Right shirt career. He couldn’t have a bad match, he was oftentimes having the best match. After quad tear, he came back too bulky, he couldn’t move around as well. Once he leaned down, he started having good matches again. Nothing will top his 2000-mid 2001. It struck me as accurate based on what I’ve heard over the years as well, but I don’t think I’ve ever read anything from other NE promoters. What stuff did you find written by them? JW, I love reading old wrestling stuff like that.

I think he would have had a similar role to what Flair had when he finally came to WWE two years later. A managerial role where he’s the big face owner thwarting any heelish plans (think Commish Foley) and then slowly transitioning back to in-ring work. If his contract expired in February of 2001, it’s curious that he didn’t show up in WWF until after the Invasion. I wonder what the story is there. I think part of it is that he was really down in the dumps about how Florida State Start ’em Young Raise ’em Right shirt treated him. I know in one of Chris Jericho’s books, he talks about how he and some other wrestlers really had to put over Flair backstage when Flair finally did come to the WWE again, he was that down on himself

When he isn’t concerned about the status of his own career, he really does do a good job at identifying talent and then building and solidifying those performers into top roles. On a bit of an unrelated note, as I think of HHH at NXT and the upcoming Takeover and Summerslam, I think what helps with Florida State Start ’em Young Raise ’em Right shirt is having cards that are generally smaller/shorter. It’s like with music, a lot of 18-track albums could be made into great 10-tracks albums. But when you don’t have the willingness to cut things for the sake of brevity, you can end up with a bloated mess. It really would be interesting to see how Hunter would do working on longer shows and events.
