What if there were more PPVs in the 80s during the Hulkamania era? Would we have seen guys like Bad News Brown (challenging Savage for the title in late 88), Mr Perfect (vs Hogan in 90),Dusty (90 vs Macho King), or Jake The Snake (89 vs Andre, 91 big gimmick match vs Taker or Warrior) in tippy-toppy main events? More big rematches (Hogan vs Savage, Hogan vs Warrior, Hogan vs Earthquake, Hogan vs Dibiase….)?
Hogan vs Dibiase was supposed to headline Summerslam in the original timeline. I could definitely see Hogan vs Perfect and Savage vs Bad News as B show main events as well.
How would you rank them in the context of their effectiveness being with Flair and vice versa? You had JJ Dillon, Hiro Matsuda, Woman, Bobby Heenan, Mr. Perfect, Jimmy Hart, Miss Elizabeth, Fifi and Sherri. Were there
others I missed?
Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntyre make sense storyline wise, but that will make Braun the heel by default so that’s probably a bad idea.
But what about Bray Wyatt? He has nothing to do now with Matt Hardy seemingly retired and would probably get a great reaction making a surprise return to assist his former lackey. Plus this allows you to do Wyatts vs. Shield on a PPV to stretch the feud out and build to Braun FINALLY winning the title.
I mean… He’s gotta get it eventually. Right?
What are your thoughts on the NWA 15 months on from Billy Corgan buying it and the NWA Title about to be defended on All In?
Is the renaissance real? Will it last? Do you hope it lasts? Thoughts on whether we’ll see more cross-promotional work like the NWA, All In and the G1 Supercard going forward?
Same question Hogan vs Flair, Hogan made tons more right?
