Re: Classic Wrestling General Discussion & Review Thread
It was done because Hogan had made the comment "Kidman couldnt headline a show at the flea market,brother" And Russo, being the internet savvy booker he was, decided to turn it into a real feud. People can complain about Hogan not putting Kidman over clean, but that was Russos booking and Kidman was like 125 lbs, him going over Hogan just would be dumb.
If I could redo the new blood, I wouldve had Hogan feud with Awesome from the start. On the first Nitro of that era, I would have had Russo and Bishoff say they hired a man to take out Hogan...enter Mike Awesome.
