  1. I think Hogan stays and runs out of gas as champion around the time Magnum has his car accident. Hogan comes in to avenge TA and feuds with Koloff. Mania still happens but with the Sammartinos vs. Savage and Ventura headlining, and Piper/T as the co-main.
  2. You probably get Hogan/Warrior II, a Sid/Savage feud, maybe Flair/Hennig moves forward in the timeline to after Mania. A three way dance of Warrior, Hogan and Savage would have been interesting. Hmm - just looked it up. Never realized Hogan and Savage tagged again after the break up of the Mega Powers in the WWF... 1 29.03.1992 Hulk Hogan & Randy Savage defeat Ric Flair & Sid Justice by DQ WWF House Show @ Auburn Hills Palace in Auburn Hills, Michigan, USA House Show
  3. From his debut up until the MSG incident, he was fairly well protected too (Warrior match notwithstanding)
  4. I've never watched the PPV. I think I've seen all of them from my childhood/teenage years. That's one I won't. I occasionally bust out the RAW tribute episode every now and then though.
  5. That would have been an awesome payoff to Sabu constantly pointing at the ceiling if Frankie flew down from the crows nest at the Hammerstein Ballroom, and then Sabu finally speaks.......by singing Piledriver.
  6. ...What if Hulk Hogan played Marty McFly in Back To The Future? It's got all the Hulk movie staples - women who can't resist his charm for no apparent reason. Hamfisted opportunities to show off his bass licks. And hopefully the Iron Shiek recast as a Libyan.
  7. I'm saying that the Arsenio Hall appearance never happens, whether it goes good or bad doesn't matter. Hogan only appears on the show to fight allegations of steroid abuse as a result of Zahorian getting arrested. If Zahorian doesn't get arrested, then Hogan still has time to play Johnny B Goode at the Enchantment Under The Sea dance.
  8. Not what I'm saying. Separate issue in that the fall out from the Arsenio Hall appearance, played a large part in him taking time off and pursue other ventures like Thunder In Paradise. Had there not been a steroid scandal in the first place, no need for Hogan to make such comments and be forced to go into hiding. I think he still takes a break after Mania 8, and probably makes another attempt at Hollywood somewhere along the line, but I think he stays with the WWF rather than goes to WCW in the long run.
  9. "-- In 1991, Hogan left the entire industry out to dry when he lied on the Arsenio Hall Show about his steroid usage. The company line had been "well, I used them when they were legal" (which was until the late 80's, I believe). Hogan went back on an agreement with Vince McMahon to protect his image as well as his kids vitamins deal. He said he used them a couple of times in the early 80's to recover from an injury. Everyone knew he was lying. The company's credibility was shot to shit thanks to Hulk. The scandals that followed over the next ten months or so led to business dying and Hulk running away from the company for a year after WrestleMania VIII. WWF had to continue on, and it was a nightmare of a time for the company and the fans who saw superstar after superstar vanish with no explanation. It took the company the better part of four years to recover from a live events standpoint. "
  10. What if Zahorian never gets charged, and as such there's not enough evidence to charge Vince? Warrior and Bulldog stick around. Hogan never goes and embarrasses himself on Arsenio Hall, so he probably sticks around too. No need to do the WBF as a separate entity, so they don't lose money on that, and I'm sure most of these guys get moved in as monster heels. Does Luger ever come across, given he signed up for the WBF initially? You probably never get Shawn and Bret's big singles push. Both probably end up in WCW as a result. Both their pushes brought about Owen and Nash, they probably flounder around elsewhere. Flair probably sticks around as he has guys he can work with.
  11. Awkward claim to fame - I used to have hot steamy 15 year old cyber sessions with Emma over ICQ back in the day. As a result of this, she used to rig the raffle for me in her role as barrel girl at the local indy fed that used to operate near Melbourne Airport. The steamy willingness to roleplay as Bubba Ray Dudley won me a Bash n Brawler and a Ric Flair DVD over a magical month in late 2005. Wondering whether its worth finding my old computer at my parents house and finding those chat transcripts between us. ....eh, at least I didn't name drop her real name like that Roman Reigns guy.
  12. What if Mick Foley never reversed the decision on Chris Benoit's two WWF title wins in 2000..
  13. Weird how scarcely the WWF used 2/3 falls matches. Had a heap for the tag titles in the late 80s between the Harts, Demos, Rougeaus, Brainbusters, etc. Not another one till 1993 (Jannetty vs. Doink on RAW), then not another one till 1998 (HHH vs. Rock at Fully Loaded).
  14. Would it have been preferable had Flair never come back to the WWE in 2002, and HHH takes the Flair role in Evolution, and Shawn takes his? Shawn was marginally preferable from 2002 onwards..
  15. Whatever happened to Jeff Strauch? That guy kept me from being perma-banned when I bought ridiculously elaborate custom comps from him. Or PaulNJ21?
  16. Assuming that Blackjack Parsons is also Tony Parsons, UK tape trader, he died in Australia about four weeks ago.
  17. Did everyone forget Miz and Morrison as a tag team? he peaked there, easily.
  18. That WCW comic. I see Goldberg, Nash, Sting, Bret and......? Benoit? Piper? Kenny Kaos? :S
  19. Man, Konnan has a sweet house. I'd like to think there's a giant jumping castle in the backyard he spends all day (every day...oil of olay) practicing rolly-polly clotheslines on.
  20. Apologies for lack of Youtube clips - unable to access at work. DDP vs. Raven vs. Benoit at Uncensored 98 would get a vote from me. A three way dance that was well scripted, not a formulaic one guy in, one guy out type of match. Pity the Bowery Death Match wasn't for the title, was far better than the Spring Stampede 98 clusterfuck. Could even raise the Goldberg/Raven match here too..
  21. When will we get to talking about the fireworks factory?!?!?
  22. Wow, that is some attention whoring.
