As we continue looking at the storied career of Hulk Hogan, we have now reached The Hulksters second year as leader of the nWo. Hogan was making an incredible amount of money in WCW, his incentives and bonuses made him the most well payed wrestler in the history of the business (at the time) and Hogan would do whatever was necessary to stay at the top of the WCW ladder.
This video takes a look at Hulk Hogan's biggest moments from mid 1997 to late 1998. We'll look at how Hogan dropped and regained the WCW title to Lex Luger at Road Wild 1997, the Piper vs Hogan cage match at Halloween Havoc, the Sting match at Starrcade and the rematch on Nitro the following night. We'll also look at Hogan vs Sting at Superbrawl, the circumstances that led to the nWo Wolfpac forming, Hogan vs Warrior at Halloween Havoc, Hogan vs Goldberg on Nitro and loads more.
Topics and matches covered include:
00:00 - Hogan vs Luger at Road Wild
03:28 - Sting vs Hogan
08:21 - The Mega Powers Explode in WCW
10:24 - The Great American Bash 98
11:15 - Goldberg beats Hogan for the WCW title
12:39 - Hogan vs Warrior
14:38 - Hogan announces his retirement and Starrcade 1998
- Much More!

    Does anyone know the name of the music at the beginning of the video? I know it's a variant of the NWO theme, but does anyone know the exact version?

    I love these videos man, they really take me back to a happier, less complicated time of my life. I get lost in them from time to time and it feels like I’m a kid again for that 15-20 mins. Also, it doesn’t hurt that I still learn things that I never knew during that time period, every now and then. Keep up the good work, man, you’ve earned a subscription from me👍🏾👍🏾

    I was at the Starcade 97 match. The entrances were OK. Sting should have come down from the rafters. The arena was electric, and totally popped for Sting. A lackluster show, but I was 10 feet away from limo that Harlem Heat came in. Daggone it, Booker T and I made eye contact!!

    I gotta say, this is the first video of yours I’m kinda disappointed in. It all felt very rushed. This was supposed to be year 2 of Hogan in the nWo, and not only did you go over a year, but I felt like you skipped over a lot of stuff to so while trying to keep it short. There was more in the video that I wanted to learn about that you didn’t really cover. I would’ve like to have known how the creative differences tore the nWo into 2 factions. Also, any notable promos or storyline moments on TV even though he didn’t work any matches? And where’s your source when it came to the Georgia Dome match with Goldberg? You claim it was just a move by Hogan to claim he drew that crowd (which isn’t exactly a lie. He may not have been the sole reason that the show was a success, but he was definitely a big part of the reason) but where did you get that info from? You usually put your sources or where you heard that from. You didn’t do that this time around. You also seem to blame Hogan for all the negative things that happened. Sure Hogan isn’t innocent, but he wasn’t in charge either. I love your videos, and you usually do a fantastic job. I don’t want your videos to lose quality, so I must let you know that I think this video was a miss. I hope your next Hogan one talking about the Fingerpoke of Doom much better.

    I don't know who's decision it was to have a screwy finish at the end of the Starcade that year (in 1997) but that was a HUGE mistake, Hogan should have put Sting over in the middle of the ring cleanly, I mean enough is enough and even the fans at that point wanted to see the damn babyface go over Hogan cleanly, and Hogan had the belt off and on for over a year at that point!.

    I was a HUGE Wolf Pack mark, I never understood why hall turned and stayed with Hogan. I now understand there was a few things going on, like Hall apparently heading to rehab. But the main thing (as said by Nash in an interview) Hogans creative control also extended to the nWo and since both Nash and Savage were splintering off Hogan didn't want hall to leave too cause then all the "cool" guys would have been gone and in heinsight I can see this being true. Anyway biggest problem was things got in the way so the war between Red vs White never got off the ground. The eventually the Finger Poke of Doom happened and well enough said about the better, so I wrap up here.

    Hogan did a lot to help bring pro wrestling into the pop culture scene and help with it's popularity in the 80s and early 90s. But he also did a lot to hurt the business as well. His refusal to move aside, not helping create newer stars, burying other wrestlers, not reaching out a helping hand to pass the torch.

    It was so funny how dumb JJ Dillon was around that time. I remember when he offered Sting a contract to face like Syxx or Scott Hall or something Sting ripped it up and J.J was like "what is it that you want Sting? Just tell me!" Then Sting went outside the ring and grabbed a fan sign that said "STING WANTS HOGAN" and he got back into the ring and held it up in front of JJ.s face. J.J then said on the mic after reading the sign, "well Gene I just don't know what it is that Sting wants I mean he won't say anything. I still don't know I gotta figure this out." Like really J.J? Sting literally held a sign up in front of your face that said "STING WANTS HOGAN" and J.J still was like "duhhh I don't know what Sting wants derrrrrr uhhhhhh I gotta go figure it outuhhhhhhh"

    I think they should have kept the title on Luger longer. The guy deserved it, he had been fighting the nWo all this time when Sting was off doing fuckall in the rafters. What they could have done is announce on Nitro that "Hogan has decided to not fight Luger at Road Wild, he wants to end this right now and have the title match on Nitro". Match happens, Luger wins. Then at Road Wild you could have had Luger give a title shot to someone he respected(Flair?) and he keeps it. Management would know the big match at Starrcade would be Hogan vs Sting so Luger has to lose it. Make it happen where Luger as Champ has to enter the Three-Ring Battle Royale at World War Three and survive it to keep his title. He makes it to the end but Hogan wins. At least it keeps Luger strong losing the title.

    This reminds me what a frustrating experience watching WCW was during this time. Fantastic build up, everyone looked great and there was so much promise but rarely any real change occurred, just the illusion of change. If only Hulk could have seen the bigger picture and not try and protect his own brand all the time. The only surprise was there was never any surprises. Ultimately WCW snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.

    I still feel that somehow guys like hogan, Nash, ramon etc have siphoned the money and took the creative control as per their wish also led down to wcw down fall. Wcw never invested their homw grown talent apart from sting n ric flair and showed too much dependency on ex wwf stars.. As a result guys like hogan was never a wwe guy, wcw guy, or a tna guy.. And he just hopped from one place to other for his own selfish wishes.. I know there are hogan guys who may not like it.. But this is a fact...

    Man I always wonder why people love hulk Hogan the guy was such a politician during his time in the Wwf/e and wcw he never wanted to lose clean he always wanted the spotlight he refused to put talent over and demanded insane amount of money for very little work I absolutely hate the guy he had terrible mic skills and wrestling skills and he was never really a wrestler he thought of himself as an icon in wrestling which is true to some extent but as a true wrestling fan i think that the guy was an absolute disgrace to the world of professional wrestling

    They (WCW) should have just let Brett stay in the heart foundation together. And let be a their own thing. The could of had a H.F. versus raven and his flock. Jimmy Hart could of re joined with Brett to do the talking. But how cool would it have been if raven kidnapped Jimmy Hart and they fought tho get him back. Only he was brain washed into being a flock member. Grunge Jimmy would be great tv then. Imo
