^^ Which, I believe, is another reason so many guys were reluctant to sign "contracts" with Vince.
Many probably saw the truth that they could do more damage than good.
But, that was just one more exercise in control on the old man's part.
By not letting them go until they were almost relegated to "underneath" status, Vince knew they'd be no threat to his show in another territory.
Bundy probably could have gone into NC or or MN fresh off the heels of his WM2 match and entered into some big-money feuds with the top guys there.
By staying in the Fed, Bundy instead went into WM3 working a mixed-tag match with the midgets.
You think his industry value dropped?
Bundy definately could have been used much better after his big cage match with Hogan. I mean wrestling Hillbilly Jim and midgets atm WM3? Come on, Vince. He did re-enter a couple of SNME matches with Hogan that lead to the big angle leading into WM4 but even still, they could have utilized Bundy better then what they did.
