IIRC one of the issues with Jerry Jarrett getting in was him having a bad rep for being a poor payoff guy.

And yet Paul Heyman got in as a promoter.

 

*Oh I see someone beat me to it but it's worth saying twice.

They both had their set formula for a good match and those two formulas just didn't gel. Hogan was all about getting beat on until it was time for him to make a comeback while Flair's formula was more about letting the babyface look better than him until a time limit draw or screwy finish.

Pretty sure they went with 5 on 3 instead of 4 on 3 because this is going to lead to a Survivor Series style match next month. Whether that is a 5 on 3 elimination style tag match or The Shield find two additional partners I don't know but it's the only reason I can think of they specifically bumped it up to 5.

 

Also it lets The Shield be at a massive disadvantage so they can lose and keep the reunion going because if they reunite to take down a threat and in their first match back they take it down, what else is there?

It surprises me that Don Owen is probably falling off the ballot completely.  I get Portland was never the top territory, but it had several periods of being really hot and Owen was, next to Jerry Jarrett, the last of the territorial promoters to fold up the tent

It's disappointing how much the smaller territories get written off, by Dave especially, for not drawing huge crowds when they didn't have the population bases to do so anyway. Having a successful money making promotion for decades is impressive even if your biggest arena could only hold 3,000-4,000 instead of 10,000.

 

 

Memorial Coliseum held way more than 4,000. So did Key Arena.

 

Sure but those weren't their regular venues for Portland and Seattle like MSG was for WWF or Mid-South Coliseum was for Memphis.
