You mentioned in your Hogan DVD rant that him and Rude had great chemistry together but never really worked a programme. Are there any other examples of guys who had great chemistry but, for whatever reason, never feuded?
Wishing you and your family well.
Read your latest Hogan DVD, of course. If the WWF was a “heel territory” where it would all be about the chase, would could you see and not see carrying the title long term during the late 80’ and early 90’s? Let’s say before the rise of Bret and dominance of Yoko. Going to guess you are down with Savage. And Flair in the WWF. How about those never champion if given a proper chance?
Jake Robert? (if no demons)
Jake would be a shitty choice as champion. Just the wrong style and person for the position.
1. What’s your personal favorite Hogan match?
2. At what point in his WWF run did Hogan stop becoming a draw? I always thought it to be around WM 8 when he was going to “retire” after his match with Sid
3. You correctly wrote after WM 18 that the WWE had a limited window of time to cash in on Hogan before his popularity faded away. Looking back did they handle things right by putting the title on him right after WM? Could they have drawn his time out more by pairing him with Edge in a tag team like they did later on that year?
4. Is there anyone in Hogan’s career that you think he could have done big business with that he never got a chance to? I’ve always thought Rick Rude was a good answer
With everything on shutdown and all of us stuck at home, and new wrestling fairly scarce, I figured I'd share out the "Intro to Joshi" playlist I made when somebody asked in one of the daily threads in case more people might dig it. Basically it's got one match each for most of the big stars from the 90s era when Zenjo peaked, with the philosophy being that as people go through it they'll naturally find favorites and can spiderweb out on their own from there (or as us one of us joshi geeks in the daily threads for recs).
I dunno, it's good wrestling. Figured I'd share.
Dare we expect a review forthcoming 😉
But they drew so much money against each other from Bockwinkel to Bundy to Andre and the Family to Flair so I always wondered if they were friends. We know Bobby hated Warrior, but what about Hulk?
