soup23 Posted April 9, 2017 Report Share Posted April 9, 2017 Here we are at the big reboot. This isn't really a match at all but more Kidman cutting a shoot promo on Hogan and then Hogan coming out and them getting into a big brawl. The way Kidman conveyed his promo felt geunine and there certainly was a good bit of truth mixed into what he was saying. It is an interesting angle to analyze because I can see how someone like Hogan can think Kidman does have the size or stature to really compete with him. Going through the 90's, we witnessed first hand Kidman being a more polished worker than I remembered but even I am not sure in 2017 eyes that Kidman is the right person for this role. However, since the Radicalz had been exiled it is mostly a case of beggars cant be choosers and the reaction this brawl and angle got was really effective for the time. It could have built to something. I do think WCW was too far gone by now to compete but the bones are still there to be sustainable. The ending of this segment shows why that won't be even possible though as Bischoff has to run down, pledge his allegiance to Hogan and then double cross him with a chair shot to the head. This does allow Kidman to score a visual pin so something is acomplished. I am interested in tracking this and Hogan's involvement and attention level leading up to him calling the promotion a pile of shit at Bash at the Beach.
