Wrestlemania 7


Before Iraq invade Kuwait in 1990 and the whole Sgt. Slaughter turncoat angle was conceived, what was the plan for Wrestlemania 7?  Was Warrior-Hogan II the long plan or did they have something else cooking?  Thanks.

​Yup, Warrior-Hogan was indeed conceived as the general plan from the moment Warrior won the title, but Warrior just didn't draw and they decided to go with the cultural zeitgeist of the Iraq invasion instead.  And really, a few years earlier and Slaughter as the American turncoat might have worked as a foil for Hogan, but I think everyone knew he was too far past his prime and just didn't buy it. ​
