When I was younger I was a big fan of Shane Douglas. I guess I enjoyed his heel gimmick and his attitude of just being a complete jerk. But, now as I get older and I watch more and more of his stuff, I ask myself, “what was I thinking?”
I have enjoyed his teaming with Ricky Steamboat in WCW from 1992-1993. They were the prototypical babyface tag team. Steamboat was the obvious star and Douglas was more or less his protege. Douglas wasn’t there too long, but had he remained there in the company, turning on Steamboat could have been a huge career move but instead he left and went to ECW.
