    Well, it could have lead to something if Marty hadn’t been fired shortly afterwards.

    What a lot of people do not realize is that marty’s decline had nothing to do with him being less talented. It was the fact that he had drug and alcohol problems even beyond shawn’s. That is what led to marty’s firing and then they never wanted to really put him in anything high profile after that.

    Being in the process of watching every Raw from the New Generation era, I can safely say that Marty definitely could have been a star like Shawn. His matches were consistently good, the fans were always behind him, and the announcers (including McMahon himself) always put him over strong.

    Of course, with his substance abuse issues and the Charles Austin lawsuit, Marty always managed to get fired at the most inopportune times (3 years in a row just after the Royal Rumble). He likely would have faced Michaels at Wrestlemania 8, but got fired. The next year, he probably would have wrestled Michaels at WM 9 in a rematch of their Rumble encounter, but he got fired. The next year, he was fresh off a brief title run with the 123 Kid and also played the resurrected Undertaker ascending to the rafters at the Rumble, but got fired once more. Marty was always on the verge of stardom, but circumstances prevented him from reaching those heights.

    Somehow this point is lost on WWE’s bookers, who think that a reliable way to create a new star is to break up a tag team and then fire one of its members (Hart Dynasty, Cryme Tyme, Dudebusters, Deuce and Domino, etc.).

    Agreed. Marty was great when he was sober- at least for the first couple of years following the breakup, anyway.
