Stevie Ray is one of the worst wrestlers of all time. I hope there's a 20 minute Stevie Ray v someone else Worst of All Time-level like Konnan match from late 90s WCW because it would easily surpass HHH/Steiner.
I kind of like Hogan/Giant.
Rumble Trip/Steiner is better than NWO because it's so much worse than NWO.
Wrestlecrap mentality is the only thing I can accept.
Hulk Hogan v The Giant (WCW 10/8/96)
--Good enough, I guess. About as good as heel Hulk Hogan at 600 years old and Paul Wight in the first year of his career would get. Pretty slow, but I didn't want it any other way, they actually tried to outpower each other almost the whole thing (when Hogan wasn't doing some of the best stalling ever). There wasn't any of this Hogan superman stuff either, he had to yank the gigantic hair from the gigantic head of The Giant to even be in contention to win the Greco-Roman tie-ups. I loved when he pointed the referee toward his head to show Wight was pulling his hair (when he wasn't), so the ref couldn't see HE was pulling Wight's hair. Nash and Hall's interference was done better than most mid-late 90s WCW run-ins as well. The Giant hulking up was something else.
I have no idea if it holds up. I mean a match being "good enough I guess" probably doesn't deserve the term "holds up" anyway. Saying Hogan's stalling was some of the best ever seems like hyperbole, I'll admit.
I did when I was a kid. Wolfpac and all that awesome stuff.
Looking back he doesn't do anything for me. Even from a nostalgic standpoint. He did have a surprisingly above average/solid affair with Disco Inferno from Spring Stampede 1999. While I don't think Disco was bad, it wasn't what I was expecting going in.
WCW is BOSS. All aspects. From the high grade quality matches of the early 90's/stellar cruiserweight performances or the fun wrestlecrap aspects that were the oodles of gimmicks & mind boggling booking decisions. And everything in between.
