Re: WCW Discussion Thread because people get asshurt about JUST RUSSO

Am I crazy of are The Creatures using a theme song that would become known with a luchadore in the latter 90's WCW?

Don't get me started on Morton vs Pillman though. Had potential to be quite the Light Heavyweight Championship match. Instead Morton sucks it up so bad that it's nearly unbearable.

Does anyone else think the Hogan heel turn was ruined with the "WHOSE SIDE IS HE ON"?

I don't think it revealed much at that time. Anyone who paid attention to Bobby probably thought it was just Brain being Brain. Always hating Hogan while on commentary and all that jazz.

Re: WCW Discussion Thread because people get asshurt about JUST RUSSO

Heenans comment was stupid of course but it didn't ruin it. At worst it gave it away but Hogans face and the fact that there were two Outsiders against three WCW guys and they still had to bring out their third guy which most likely would also be a "New York" guy all gave it away.

With that said it was still shocking as hell. It's like they wanted us to think it's Hogan but we wouldn't want to accept that it moght be Hogan.

I have rewatched it several times and wondered that, did Heenan kinda give it away? But the crowd didn't hear him, and I don't think most people watching paid much attention to it really.

After all, Heenan is the world's biggest Hogan hater.

Re: WCW Discussion Thread because people get asshurt about JUST RUSSO

It was hard to ruin the Hogan heel turn to be honest. Back in July '96 there was not really an IWC and the only people that knew what was happening backstage were the subscribers to W.O.N. Obviously most realised it was fake, but for 99% of viewers kayfabe was alive and the WWF/WCW audience consisted of families. Meltzer reported everybody from King Mable to Lex Luger as the third Outsider, but not Hogan.

Genuinely impossible to believe Hulkamania would go heel until it actually happened, even then was difficult to grasp.

Another important note: Not many people actually saw it happen live. WCW PPVs weren't shown outside of America and the PPV was bought by approx. 175,000 households.

Good ear. That is indeed the theme Psicosis would use in years to come.

I agree about Morton/Pillman. Not great, considering the potential it had.
