Wrestlemania 2's main event: What if...
Phil5991's thread on Wrestlemania VII reminded me of something I read once.
That after Nikita Koloff's first main event in the NWA Vince tried to get him to come to WWF. He told him his push would culminate in ether a feud with then IC champ Tito Santana or a Wrestlemania 2 main event of Hulk Hogan Vs. Nikita Koloff. How much better would that have been than Hulk in a cage with King Kong Bundy.
Nikita seconded by Uncle Ivan, the Former WWWF Champion, goes after Hulk and the WWF championship. In the mid 80s USA Vs. Soviet Union. Nikita was a monster back then.
Imagine it follows a similar story to Hulk/Bundy. Nikita and Ivan want to take the WWF championship back to the Soviet Union and Nikita wants to return it the Koloff family.
Nikita comes and just destroys Hogan. Injures him badly with multiple Russian Sickles. Hulk, the injured underdog patriot, goes into a steel cage with the Russian Nightmare. The heat for that would have been off the charts.
Too bad Nikita turned it down.
