Why did Hogan cut the legs out from every challenger in WCW, pre-NWO? Whether it was Flair, Vader, the Giant, the Dungeon…he killed all of them as being a threat before the feud payoff. Hurting WCW & his own payoffs in the process it would seem. Egomania running wild?
Much like Vince Russo, he needed Vince McMahon to know how to rein him in.
