Psychosis - That's who I figured it was linked to. Thought that sounded right.

Psicosis pulled off some pretty nasty spots. I also marked for the Guillotine Leg Drop, btw.

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.
Very true. I was lucky to be one of the 175,000 people who actually got to see it live (on PPV). At the time, we had the "black box" and got all the PPVs for free. It was awesome. I was 13 in 1996, so I was right in the age range of being super obsessed with wrestling. I'll never forget right after Hogan leg-dropped Savage, looking at my best friend who was sitting across the room and both of us had the eyes wide open look on our faces. No one really saw that heel turn coming. Not even when Hogan was walking down the aisle. And speaking for myself, I didn't take Heenan's "Whose side is he on?" comment seriously at all. I thought he was just hating on Hogan like he always did.

EDIT- Actually, maybe there was slightly more than 175,000 people watching on PPV. That number doesn't take into account those of us who had the black box

So, is being 22 and still super obsessed with wrestling a bad thing? b/c I never thought it was.

Haha, nah, I don't think it's a bad thing at all. I'm 29 and still love it. I might not love the current product, but I still watch it. And I still watch my DVDs/Blu Rays and Classics on Demand all the time. Love the wrasslin'

Yep, 100% same here. All I have to do if something nowadays isn't quite as fun, is simply pop in a DVD or head on youtube and relive something I really enjoy. Such as all of this WCW goodness.
