[1994-06-23-WCW-Clash of the Champions XXVII] Ric Flair and Hulk Hogan

Recommended Posts

I know they're in Charleston, but Hogan doesn't exactly get a hero's welcome in his first appearance in front of a crowd. Pretty funny to hear all the boos. Flair interrupts by Turnertron and looks like a cartoon character version of himself immediately. :( He does get a nice reaction, though.

Can’t help but hear those boos for Hogan’s introduction. Not the reaction you would want here. Hogan’s says to listen to the Hulkamaniacs and the crowd boos even more louder. Hogan challenges the winner of the Flair/Sting match. Flair looks demented on the video scream. Not the Ric from beginning of the year. More boos for Hogan.

Dylan was at this show. He could probably give a better explanation of the crowd that night. But yeah, Hulk wasn't getting the love...at all. Flair was though. This was pretty embarrassing for WCW I would think and a lesson to be learned: Don't debut Hogan in Flair country.

Hogan getting booed in first live appearance was something else and should have at least been concerning to WCW. Flair looks good interrupting and gets a good reaction.

Man, I never saw this before. Hogan gets booed out of the building ! Makes for a fun moment. Flair has a nervous breakdown. I really wonder why he choosed to go that route, why not remain the poised champion he portrayed for the last few months ?

Hogan was shook here. He stumbles his words and his eyes are darting all over. I don't think it occurred to him that he would get booed out of the building.

They should've held this at MGM studios, where the crowd do as they are told! The reaction made it clear that Hogan would bomb as a face in WCW. Unfortunately it would take 2 years to turn him heel, half of which he was off shooting movies.

I think the idea was that if Flair cranks the crazy heel-ness up to 11, then Hogan is a more palatable choice for the fans as face. Didn't work, but I think that's the logic.
