After Mike left the WWF in the mid 80's for the NWA, he started using the Rotunda name, because he didn't want to deal with the WWF if they decided to claim that the name was copyrighted.
Mike felt that the Turner years were a challenge for Vince, but always thought that WCW was being mismanaged and was only a matter of time until Vince controlled the business.
Mike goes on to say that not only was he not working for 8 months, WCW ended up screwing him out of the last year of his contract.
