Talk about it here.

Just last month, Luger aligned himself with Giant and now he's teaming with Sting to take him out of the ring, which makes no sense. Hogan of course has to get screwed in the finish and make Savage winning the title all about him, but you can say that for almost every world title win Savage ever had. The crowd seemed to be with him until he started this crap, then they turned on him. It's amazing that he couldn't figure out how the overbearing act worked against him even when he was playing to a crowd that was predisposed to be friendly to him (a rarity for Hogan in this area of the country during this time).

I was 14 at the time and tended towards being a Hogan fan (though I preferred Giant) but man was he a jackass here. Really soured me on him.

I always thought this was a good concept for WCW at the time because it showed the depth of their roster. It's a little flawed because there is so much going on, it's asking way too much of your average wrestling fan's attention span. Having the three broadcast teams was helpful in this regard, although the execution of it was akin to putting a Band-Aid over a gutshot stomach.

It's not wonder Savage hated Hogan. Just ridiculous all around. Mean Gene trying to make Savage look like the bad guy.
