Epilogue, Part 2: WCW World Champions An important note with these is that if I already covered a champion in a previous part (Michaels, Hogan) they won't get covered again. With that in mind, here are the world champions from down south. The Giant: Paul Wight would continue to tear through the WWE, never becoming the Big Show because WCW wasn't on TBS by the time I would've changed him over (and really, it was silly to do that in Too Sweet when WCW programming was on ESPN at that point) before leaving in 2007 and returning to WCW, where he continues to be as big, but not a show. Sting: Sting remained a WCW loyalist and stayed a main eventer, feuding with Triple H, Scott Steiner, and others before retiring in 2010, being beaten by Christopher Daniels at Starrcade. He is now a road agent for the company. Goldberg: Goldberg continued to tear through WCW, winning the title a third and fourth time, but like Austin, he would find himself a relic of a bygone era, having his last match against Kurt Angle at the Great American Bash 2007. He has since gone on to do Goldberg things and while we do lose out on him in the Longest Yard remake, Santa's Slay is also butterflied away, so I'd say it balances it out. Kevin Nash: Nash continued to hog the main event spot in WCW but with both a biceps injury and quad tear in 2004, plus bouts of depression over Hall's death, he decided to hang it up after a match against his buddy Shawn at Fall Brawl 2004. He has since taken to road agenting and will occasionally do commentary. Diamond Dallas Page: DDP would get a longer run with the world title down the line, but would eventually retire himself due to injuries and advancing age, wrapping up at Starrcade 2003 in a match against his fellow Jersey Triad member Chris Kanyon for the United States title. Triple H: The game has been in a top tier position in WCW since retiring Flair, winning the World title multiple times. He would suffer the unfortunate quad tear in 2001, but he came back in grand fashion. He also spearheaded a revival of the Four Horsemen with himself, Flair as the manager, Samoa Joe, and Triple X members Low Ki and Christopher Daniels. Even after hanging up the boots at Starrcade 2012, Tripel H has been position as a major player both on-screen as WCW President and behind the scenes working with Paul Heyman on the creative team, operating the Power Plant and working with Eric Bischoff and Fusient on new business ventures for WCW. Mike Awesome: Awesome would eventually leave WCW in late 2002, citing disgust with the intensely political locker room. Tragically, Awesome would commit suicide in 2007, as he did in OTL.
