No they didn't. And part of the reason WCW went out of business is because they developed no young talent other than Booker T and Goldberg.
Secondly that was pro wrestling where old guys could still be presented as competent workers.
If Hulk Hogan was jobbing to midcarders before main eventing WCW you can be sure it would've been even more laughable.

Ben Askren is Jesus pretty much. I'd love to see him in the UFC soon, and with Bellator probably running themselves out of business it might be sooner than later.
