I’m talking red and yellow face Hogan 94/95 early 96; Flair program, 3 faces of fear program (starrcade 94 v butcher and reviving elbow match terrible ideas) and the Vader program. At least the late 95 stuff was different and he took a break without the belt. 96 pre NWO had that terrible Uncensored 17 v 2 cage match but you are right he did lose to Arn on tv.

Around the same time period Michaels was doing exactly the same as Hogan the main difference being he actually made fans walk out during events and didn't draw shit. But he crawled dramatically for the ropes in every match so let's ignore he was poison to the business.

Eric gave Shawn creative control back in the 90’s?


As far as Hogan goes I was a fan for a long time but his WCW run was up and down at best. I don’t blame him for getting all he could when he could.

For the most part I have no problem with Bischoff. He made some mistakes but who hasn't in that business. My main complaint would be allowing Hogan to do whatever he wanted.  Hogan put himself ahead of what was best for business and Eric let him.

We get it, you are the resident Hogan troll ALL OF THE TIME.  You say it like you were standing there in the room regardless of what Bischoff says, with absolutely nothing to back up that claim.  You hate Hogan so much none of your comments have any credibility.  LOL at you.

OK- Hogan was my favorite wrestler, but he was on top for too long during the NWO.  Eric missed chances to elevate guys because Hogan & Nash and a few others who were past their prime remained at the top of the card and TV shows.
Eric did a great job turning things around, but there was a point when they didn't know how to end the NWO angle and it killed interest in in WCW.

the NWO angle should have ended with Sting beating Hogan cleanly at Starrcade 1997. but we all know why that didnt happen and what happened instead....that's an example of what I am talking about.

Grow up?  You post some of the least mature stuff on here.  You hate the guy to the point where you are trolling anytime he is part of a topic, sometimes at ridiculous levels.  Are you seriously not aware of this?

You are being the troll. I dont hear from you unless its about Hogan.nothing is being made up about him. His game playing  is legendary. Bischoff let friendship get in the way of doing the right things.

Yeah except almost everything you say.  It would be easy to provide multiple examples from your posts.  No matter what, you are a hater and jump to the worst possible conclusion regardless of the circumstances.  You post like a typical IWC Hogan hater but you might actually be the worst I've ever seen.  Still not self aware, sad.

To be honest I agree with the sentiment that Hogan had his way too often but also being honest I dont have a whole lot of examples.

Lemme think. I know Hogan no-selling Vader's powerbomb didn't sit well with me.

Lemme think. Others can add. Was Hogan having his way in WCW an internet myth? Or are there legit things to point at?
