What the World Was Watching: WCW Main Event – September 17, 1995

WCW Champion Hulk Hogan shows up in Asheville, North Carolina on the Harley Davidson motorcycle he received at Bash at the Beach and is surrounded by his fans.  Gene Okerlund interviews him, with Hogan hyping his journey through North Carolina, painting the Dungeon of Doom as anti-American.  This offends the Giant as he takes a Dungeon of Doom monster truck and runs over Hogan’s motorcycle, forcing Hogan and his fans to flee.  Hogan hilariously pounds on the side of the truck like a kid having a tantrum as the Giant laughs.

Eric Bischoff and Dusty Rhodes are doing commentary and they are live from Asheville, North Carolina.  They treat the destruction of Hogan’s motorcycle as a national tragedy.

What the World Was Watching: WCW Saturday Night – July 29, 1995

Gene Okerlund interviews WCW Champion Hulk Hogan in a dark room.  Hogan says he misses Andre the Giant and how it was unfair the Pontiac Silverdome did not chant Andre’s name.  He does his best to act dramatic, sniffing Andre’s old shirt, as he says he felt Andre’s presence when the Giant threw the shirt at him at Bash at the Beach and that rumors of Andre having a son were true.  Hogan concludes by saying that the time has come to rise and face the challenge of the Giant again and to do so he will have to fight through the Dungeon of Doom.  That journey will start on next week’s Main Event.

Tony Schiavone and Bobby Heenan are doing commentary and they are taped from Atlanta, Georgia.  The matches on this broadcast took place on July 11.
