During the Monday Night War between the World Wrestling Federation and World Championship Wrestling, there were quite a few wrestlers who jumped from one promotion to another. Money and guaranteed contracts were given out like candy. It was certainly a ‘wrestler’s market’ where they could dictate where they wanted to be and pretty much for how much. While we all know of wrestlers like Hall and Nash, Jeff Jarrett, Rick Rude and Brian Pillman all jumping from one place to another…one that isn’t talked about much is the WWF defection of ‘Mr. Perfect’ Curt Hennig to WCW. It involved backstabbing, deception, legal threats and a lot of personal bitterness.
