Dirty Eddie Posted July 11, 2011 Share Posted July 11, 2011 Greg Dyke killed the UK scene, not Vince McMahon. He didn't like wrestling, and chucked it off the channel even though it still got decent ratings. British wrestling failed to then change, as Ian has said, and failed to get tv elsewhere whilst the WWF on Sky went from strength to strength. It's impossible to say what might have happened had the WWF never made it to these shores. You just don't know. What if Dyke had shit-canned wrestling, and Sky had picked it up seeing it as a cheap ratings-grabber. They might have thrown a load of money at it, just like they did with Darts, which was also canned by the BBC. That turned out to be a smart move. Without the WWF on the scene it's impossible to know really. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
