Renegade


What on earth was the deal with Renegade?   Did Vince ever sue for such a Warrior ripoff?   And did the fans s--- on him when they realized he wasn't Hellwig?   I mean by early 95, it was pretty awful with washed up WWF guys everywhere but to me Renegade takes the cake

​Well as to the legality, at some point Vince lost the rights to the whole Warrior gimmick back to Hellwig, so it might have been a case of him not being able to sue in the first place.  And yes, fans absolutely s--- on Renegade from the moment he debuted, because WCW had essentially been promising Ultimate Warrior.  I think Hogan legitimately thought he could build up this clod into a Warrior-type foil and draw money with him, but I'm not in his deranged mind so I couldn't say for sure.  ​
