    Jim Cornette really should be praised for his early work with Vader. He always seemed like he was scared shitless of what Vader might do. A great 'uncontrolable monster' gimmick.

    SHAWN shoulda been in a 12 Step Program. The VADER ANGLE was INCREDIBLE, especially if you were a long time fan.. HOW MUCH HOGAN can one take ??? Nice to have a 1987 Main Event on NITRO. GOLDUST doesn't get buried, he lost to THE WWF Champ. He's the IC CHAMP. They are on Different Levels.

    Haha! I literally laughed out loud when you called Nick Patrick a "sh*t referee", perfectly delivered sir. Another fantastic recap, thank you!.. I have a question about one thing, you refer to some things (brass knuckles, the roll of quarters) as "international objects". Is that a common term for illegal objects, or a regional phrase? Just curious, thanks!

    I really love this series. Came across it about a week ago and I have been binge watching since then, catching up. I like how you cover some of the little things about the shows that many people have forgotten about. I probably spent more time watching Nitro than Raw up until the last year, but there were certainly moments when the creative decisions of WCW caused me to bang my head against the wall. Your analysis is very even handed and fair. You are good at stating your case. Keep it up.

    Goldust's whole IC title run was a joke in 1996. They made him lose to Piper at WM12. After winning the belt I can't think of any high profile wins he had back then. As for Hogan now I see why they let him sit on the title for what felt like 2 straight years when he was in NWO. His move set was terrible and he was way over exposed.

    Vader knows about the backwards singlet. He says he wore it backwards because he had an aching upper back and the tightness gave him the psychology of extra support...

    I can't wait for Hogan's heel turn cuz then the stuff he does each week will make sense and is more entertaining, at this point it is like rocky maivia in his early wwf days.....doing all the face stuff and getting booed everyone knew he would better as heel. I think your taking points away for hogan will/should change when we get to Hollywood Hogan days cuz at least then it makes sense for him to act like he does lol. great video as always! don't let them wwf fans pressure you into giving more wins to WWF! :) lol j/k, keep up the great work, cant wait for the next episode!

    Those skits would of been funny if it didn't make Vince look like a hypocrite, Vince did worse things and actually planned sabotaging the territories. Then when someone was beating him at his own game without pulling dirty tricks, he gets his panties in a twist and acts like a child with name calling. Best part is that Turner put a 10th of the time thinking of vince that Vince thought of him and said he laughed at the skits which prob pissed Vince off

    I'm a huge Hogan fan, always will be but this Era of Hogan is terrible. He gives his opponents NOTHING. There was zero reason to have him in the main event doing lazy matches when you got Savage and flair and a week ago, flair and sting battling for the world title. It was Hogan having Bischoff in his back pocket and Hogan doing what's best for Hogan. Not the show. He over shadowed Savage constantly at this time and would continue to do so for savages entire WCW run. It was sad. And annoying.

      It's a call back to when they actually used the term "international object" back in WCW. At some point a directive came down to not use the term "foreign". It was meant to apply to things like "foreign affairs", but somebody decided that it applied to foreign objects as well.

    4 muaj më parë

    Couldn't stand hogan then, still can't stand him now. I really have no idea how he stayed relevant for so long personally, he was always horrible. In my personal opinion he didnt fit into these later years, 97 and up. I dont get how fans still bought him after so long of the same b.s. even in nwo, he was always a heel anyway. Taking the spotlight away from great talent like savage, and so many others. Or acting like a giant baby when he lost. Why did it take fans so long to get sick of him, it still baffles me.
