Last couple minutes. Kevin Sullivan tries to hit Hogan with the megaphone but Mr. T stops him. I can’t tell for sure what happens to Sullivan but Hogan pins him. Where’s Dave Sullivan in all this? I hope somewhere with a stake in his heart. Avalance drop on Sting. Kevin Sullivan beating up Mr. T who really has been taking a beating in WCW. Usually celebrities go over at the expense of wrestlers but not Mr. T in WCW. Butcher has the sleeper on Hogan.

All three babyfaces wear red and yellow Sting face paint. Hogan pins Sullivan, then the heels do a number on Sting, Hogan and Mr. T. The Armstrongs try making a save. Ha. Stars and Stripes also try. Once again, ha. Policemen come in (Policemen?) to try to break the vicious, horrible sleeper Beefcake has on Hogan.

This sucked. Hogan pinned Sullivan then Beefcake applied a devastating sleeper hold on Hogan. It was so bad it may have killed Hulkamania. Then police officers came out to control things. Total bullshit.

I hate this angle and from the sounds of the crowd, they agree.

Where’s Dave Sullivan in all this?


Earthquake splashed his arm and he sold it as being broken so he had to be taken to the back.

Sting must be thinking "Awww crap, I was the franchise and the face of WCW, now I'm barely Randy Savage in his best Hogan's bitch role, wearing stupid red and yellow". Wait, no he was probably thinking "Yeh, I have a new brother in paint because we lifted weights and went surfing together !" The match itself is not too bad since Dave Sullivan is ejected early and Tenta carries the whole thing on his back (Sullivan works decently hard too). It's amazing how useless and inept Beefcake was, as the match totally dies each time he enters the ring. It's also amazing to consider they still went with him main eventing Starrcade when it was obvious nobody gave a shit about him. Why not go with Hogan vs Avalanche instead ? Tenta could work and knew out to heat heat. Anyway... Shitty undecipherable finish and it's funny how Stars & Stripes are just thrown to the lions one hour after they regain the World Tag Team Titles. Way to make them look like jobbers. Beefcake uses the lethal sleeper on Hogan and Heenan says it's dangerous as it could lead to brain damage for Hogan. Well, that would give us two Dave Sullivan then. Not too bad of a match thanks to Tenta, horrible angle. Beefcake is one of the most useless worker ever.

Sullivan and Avalanche are legitimately 2/3 of what *could* be a decent heel stable to feud with Hulk & friends, but Beefcake is a total millstone. Hell, even the heel beatdown post-match starts off good until Beefcake's sleeper just kills everything, despite Tony and Bobby's best efforts to sell it. It simply isn't 1975 anymore, nor was it 2005 and the peak of UFC, and the hold had been killed off.

I agree with the idea that, on paper, this match looks like a worst Clash main event ever, but it isn't. Dave Sullivan is gone within the first two minutes (addition by subtraction) and the first half of the match is basically Hogan just getting destroyed before Sting comes in with a pretty good hot tag. Tenta is the MVP, Sullivan is spirited but looks almost ridiculous against Hogan, and The Butcher is just awful, but the crowd is engaged throughout and its not like there are a dozen and one rest holds - its not the best match of anyone's career, but, man, can you imagine how bad this could've been with Dave Sullivan actually involved? Or if they had tried to play up the Butcher/Hogan feud with staredowns and drama? It is to the viewers' benefit that the feud is talked up a great deal on commentary but is never manifested in the story of the match in the ring. By not being as terrible as it could be, this match sneaks into "decent" range.
