[1995-09-11-WCW-Nitro] Hulk Hogan vs Lex Luger

Just the post-match, although Hogan/Luger was kind of an Apter mag dream match at the time. Hogan wants to know whose side he's on and why the Dungeon only attacked Hogan and not him. Sting mediates and suggests that since Vader is out of the picture, Luger would make a great replacement. Savage would rather go in a man down since he doesn't trust Luger, so Hogan is the swing vote, and Hogan reluctantly agrees to let Luger join their team. Luger wants the title shot that Vader was promised down the line if he agrees to team with them. They did a good job making the most of Luger during this time.

Mentioned already, but there was genuine intrigue over what the result of this match would be, which wasn't the case for any of Hulk's WCW matches before. Vader's gone AWOL, brother! Hogan points out that the DOD didn't put their hands on Lex, but Sting immediately takes up Lex's side. Oh, Sting. Savage would rather go 4-on-3 than team with Luger, and makes a strong argument. The bickering gets so bad that even Jimmy Hart gets dragged into it. This was something pretty new in the face of what the WWF had been doing for its whole existence, with all babyfaces being friends all the time.


Scott Keith is Scott Keith and all, but his proposal that WCW run the MegaPowers vs. Luger & Sting on PPV, at Starrcade or elsewhere, is a very good one that would have drawn big money.

Fresh off his jump to WCW after a failed 2 year run in the WWF, Luger takes on Hogan. It's crazy to think how big of a deal this match would of been in 1995 as these two have never crossed paths before this. This was a compact version of your typical Hogan match until the DOD runs in to cause the DQ just as Hulk had the match won.There's not much here and the DOD were unbearably cheesy and camp, but I did enjoy the spots where both Luger and Hogan no-sold each other's slam at the start of the match.
