    A really odd thing to point out, but it's interesting.............This is WCW's second Nitro in a row from the Tampa Bay Area. The previous week Nitro was out of Lakeland Florida which is 30mins east of Tampa, and this week is out of St. Pete which is 15mins west. Very odd scheduling decision, and I'm wondering if there was a specific reason for it. Or maybe this was just because during the early era of Nitro's existence, WCW did almost exclusively major cities out of the south.

    Can you explain to those of us here in the U.S. how in the world HAYSTACKS was such a $$$ Draw in the U.K. ? Was it just a different time period mixed with the right place, time, opponent, etc etc ? HAYSTACKS was quite a big deal over there wasn't HE ? TY. ( P.S. HOGAN was so INSANELY Outta Control at this point. I had forgotten when I was an 8th grader about this time, how much I hated HULK at this time. As a Hulkamaniac growing up, by this time as a teen... The HULKSTER had outgrown his welcome by about 93, here in 1996 is easy to see why he was getting booed outta arenas EVERYWHERE

    I tell you a good gimmick for Conan would have been the taco Bell band he could have had a big sombrero you could have a Mexican heavyweight title belt it could have silver tequila bottles going all the way around it and in the middle it can have a big gold burrito and Uncle the centerpiece and he could wear a shirt with a big taco on it says taco Bell bandit and he could give people coupons for taco Bell you know people in the crowd bigger promotional thing they should have tried that the taco Bell he wouldn't need one of them big classic Mexican mustaches

    Give out haystacks a break he's just trying to make a little bit of money for his family before he retires or dies and everyone knows WCW would throw money and almost any wrestler so you can't blame haystacks for wanting to get a piece of that pie

    Just for some context, Steve Grissom drove in a league called the NASCAR Busch Series which races stock cars. To be fair, Mean Gene isn't wrong here. NASCAR is huge in Southeastern United States, where WCW was based so there's a lot of crosse over. Turner Broadcasting sponsored Grissom through WCW while they also sponsored other cars through Cartoon Network (which Grissom would eventually drive as well). They would eventually have wrestler specific cars, most notably Goldberg. It's not unlike he wresting monster trucks seen at Halloween Havoc.

    Arn Anderson pinning Hogan was a big deal at the time, even if Hogan was getting a lot of offense and there was tons of cheating. You have commented on how strong Hogan got booked. But what you haven't said is he was getting booked that way since 1984 and people who were fans since that time wanted to see him lose desperately. And it was cool to see Anderson beat him, since he wasn't really a main eventer, but a well respected veteran who I always liked and who was kind of under the radar for a lot of his career.

    Any chance of something like this for ECW in the future? Either a reliving the war against WWE or just something like this episode with no scoring system made into a series. Either would be great

    Bischoff said on the Pillman episode of his podcast that he wasn't necessarily EXPECTING Pillman to come back as opposed to letting him make more money than he was willing to pay him at the time and giving him more money when he got over enough to warrant the price tag.

    Fun fact: About a year after Devon Storm’s appearance on this episode of Nitro, he worked the opening match of Maccabiah Mania 2 (immortalized on the notorious Grandmasters of Wrestling DVDs) where he lost to his frequent tag partner Ace Darling. Later in 1997 he started working for WWF as a job guy, which included losing to Taka Michinoku in the Light Heavyweight Championship tournament.

    I gotta say, the main event picture during this time in WCW I didn't like. If it consisted of rotating Savage & Hogan around to fight with either Arn or Flair, I just preferred WWF more at the time with Bret Hart & them. I mean Savage, Flair, Sting, etc are talented people ... but Hogan with his crappy matches and heroic saves all the time were boring. Especially his matches.
