He was hardly considered a flop. It was all bischoff who didn't like his "look". Heyman was the one who saw something in him. Foley left WCW because he was given an ultimatum, reattach his ear or win the tag titles, he chose the titles (his only title win) but then pretty much got buried as they were reluctant to work storylines around him because of his ear loss (Don't ask why).

As far as the OPs rant goes, i thought Gallows was always a dead cert? It's clearly always been him and that huge, ugly tattoo on his arm just adds to it always being him. So i don't get why so mad?
The storyline hasn't been THAT interesting to me though. There's no "sense" to the group and no reason behind them besides wanting to take over. What brings them all together? If it ends up with a mastermind and them being paid mercs, that's fine, it has some sense. Otherwise I can't see a link between Devon and Luke Gallows.
