• Hall of Famer Compares WWF & WCW’s Creative Process In 2000
On an episode of his weekly ‘My World’ podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Jeff Jarrett compared the creative processes in the World Wrestling Federation with those in World Championship Wrestling in the year 2000.
Here’s what Double J had to say:
“I knew day one, literally day one, this is a different organization than what I just came from. The buck stopped with Eric [Bischoff], Hulk [Hogan] was a part of the creative, it was a corporate environment from the very beginning.
Love him, hate him, not like him, Vince [McMahon] even though [WWF] is a publicly traded company, it’s his call on every decision. I never got that feeling ever when I worked for [WCW], going back to 1996.
Negotiating a simple finish, not every night, but for the most part everything was negotiable, if you work for WWF, most of the time it’s non-negotiable. The producer is going to go to the head writer and then to Vince. That’s really the only way it’s going to get changed, when Vince sends that show out or that finish out, that’s what you expect to get.
At WCW, for the most part, everything was negotiable.”
