He points out that some people were critical of the feud between Hogan and Billy Kidman based on the size difference between both men, but Russo thought they did a good job making the physicality look believable. Every time Kidman met Hogan 1 on 1, Hogan always got the best of him. Kidman needed help from people like Bischoff in order to get the upper hand on the bigger Hogan.
Russo informs that Hogan wore white on this show because he knew he was going to blade, and the blood would show up better on a white shirt. Russo says that Hogan is a professional, and today’s talents wouldn’t ever think about something like that.
He says that before going to every commercial on this show there was always a hook which kept viewers from changing the channel. He says that WWE never does that day, and that’s an enormous flaw on their end. He wonders when the wrestling business decided to stop telling stories?
That sums up today’s episode of Vince Russo’s The Brand. You can listen to the show yourself anytime here, and I’ll catch ya tomorrow for another recap!
