BUSINESS MIS-MANAGEMENT AND TALENT RELEASES

After a disastrous year in 1993 when WCW lost nearly $23 million, and the exectives of Turner Broadcasting nearly closed the promotion, 1994 started out with the belief that things could get better. Eric Bischoff remained as Exective Vice President, and Ric Flair was booker.

The first show of the new year Clash Of the Champions 26 on January 27, 1994 in Baton Rouge, LA. Marcus Bagwell & Too Cold Scorpio beat Pretty Wonderful, former World Champion Ron Simmons beat Ice Train, Brian Pillman beat Col. Robert Parker, who was US Champion Steve Austin's manager in a match where the loser had to wear a chicken suit, Cactus Jack & Maxx Payne beat World Tag Champions the Nasty Boys in a non title match, Dustin Rhodes wrestled TV Champion Steven Regal to a time limit draw, and in a elimination match Sting & Ric Flair beat Rick Rude and Vader.

Meanwhile more wrestlers were coming and going. Ron Simmons suffered a shoulder injury and was released, and Too Cold Scorpio was also released when he failed several drug tests. Ice Train was also given his walking papers, and Tom Zenk was given his release at this time. Manager/valet Missy Hyatt was fired when, trying to seek a pay raise, she went over Eric Bischoff's head. Hyatt would file a sexual harassement suit against WCW and asked Tom Zenk to act as a witmness for her case.Missy settled with WCW in December of 1996.
