277. Scott Norton

How did Scott Norton never work for the WWE?  With his size and power, he would have seemed like he would have fit in brilliantly with some of the other power based wrestlers that Vince had.  Don’t weep for Scott Norton though…although he was not pushed to the extent of his abilities in WCW, he reached the highest level in New Japan Pro Wrestling winning the World Title there and becoming one of the top American draws for that company.  Still, would Norton have been one of those many wrestlers that the WWE would make into a huge American star, or would he have been in the lot that saw the WWE turn a brilliant performer into a laughable cartoon?  Looks like Scott Norton feared the latter, as he never got a paycheck from Stamford.
