Re: World War 3 96(95) Worst Ending Ever

Savage wins the title after he eliminates One Man Gang, while Hogan was pulled under the top rope by Big Show. The ref thought Hogan is eliminated. Hogan still takes the spotlight...

Re: World War 3 96(95) Worst Ending Ever

what the hell was the point of that segment

it made some people boo savage and Hogan, their top babyfaces

it didnt put anyone over, or lead to any angle

WCW is not known for being creative with match finishes. This was quite a lame ending.

No, it was probably planned that way. Savage wins but Hogan doesn't lose too much face. God forbid Hogan lose a match clean, right?

Re: World War 3 96(95) Worst Ending Ever

WCW had a habit of swerve finishes to ppvs so that the following night's Nitro would get ratings. I don't remember this, and it makes me want to see what happened the next night, so evidently, the plan worked.

Re: World War 3 96(95) Worst Ending Ever

I think the original plan was to have Savage vs. Hogan at Starrcade for the title. So this was to start tension. However Hogan ended up getting a movie deal and had to leave TV for months so Hogan ended up getting "suspended" I believe.

The Starrcade main event ended up being Flair vs. Sting vs. Luger and the winner immediately went on to wrestle Savage.
