His injury derailed a lot of that as did Bray...thankfully.

“There is once again talk floating around of WWE doing away with the brand split.“

Wonder if this is true and more USA Network pushing it so that SD on Fox isn’t that different in terms of who is on the show.

There was talk a while back that Fox was very against that idea. The two shows are not different enough to me and I’m all for consolidating titles. You don’t need all stars on every show each week. It really is not that hard.

Austin 3:16 peaked after a neck injury that altered his abilities. Just saying..

Austin wasn't really taken off of tv either.

Austin 3:16 happened in June of 1996. Austin wasn't off television until at least November of 1999. You can reword your statement but the "3:16" business had already moved on. There were mentions of him and updates. Finn received a fraction of that.

Well yeah. Finn was never the star that Austin was. The difference: Austin had support from Vince day 1. Balor is just another NXT guy that everyone else believes in; except for Vince.

Stone Cold also did a run in in April of 2000. How many run-ins did Finn do during his vacation?

Also, Vince didn't believe in the Ringmaster! Austin only got that spot because HHH was being punished and Vince was desperate!

Vince had a lot more faith in Austin than he ever has Finn. I mean he created the Austin/McMahon feud which ultimately put WWE over the top and helped dawn the attitude era. Vince just views Finn like another NXT guy on the main roster. Push a little when there's no other choice but then turns around and makes them take a backseat to said favorite be-it Brock, Roman or whoever. I really don't get it but any more I've come to expect it. Such a shame considering the International star that Finn already is.

Vince is a self-hating Irishman.

In other news, KO looks like he's been on that Violent J diet since he's been out

Will wasn’t wrong; he just didn’t expound upon what he meant or we had a difference in when Austin 3:16 peaked/what he meant by neck injury. At first I thought he was misremembering things as Austin’s initial neck injury was within the early rise of his WWF fame but well after his 3:16 promo (14 months?).

Finn separated his shoulder and had to have immediate surgery that kept him out of action. Nobody knew the extent of Austin's neck injury; even Austin. That was also a much different era where science and medicine was not near what it is today. Had Austin's injury happened today he probably would have been ruled out right away.
