Welcome to Seven Things, a list that will run weekly and consist of very eclectic topics. These are of my opinions and doesn’t express the views of others on WrestlingOnEarth.
Last week, I wrote about the Seven Best Celebrities In Wrestling, so it’s only fair I discuss the worst this week.
7. David Arquette
Putting the WCW Title on Arquette was one of the dumbest moves ever but it’s become really overblown when discussing the significance of it in wrestling history. You’d think WCW was in great shape, the wrestling industry was highly respected in society and the sanctity of world titles were honorable before this moment. This was just another terrible wrestling decision.
That being said, the use of David Arquette was god awful giving him a spot on this list. Winning the WCW Title in a weird stipulation match (vintage WCW) by pinning Eric Bischoff, Arquette became the champion.
He would go on to defend it in a triple cage match (a gimmick created in the WCW movie Arquette starred in: Ready To Rumble) vs. Jeff Jarrett and co-star/friend Diamond Dallas Page. Much like Page’s wife, neighbor and best friend during this feud, Arquette turned heel on him. It led to this awe-inspiring promo where Scott Hudson steals the show.
Related to David Arquette, we recently posted a “Where Are They Now?” special looking at the Ready To Rumble cast. Check it out.
