I read in "Ask 411" about Hogan losing to Yokozuna at King of the Ring 1993 by tainted pinfall (a Japanese photographers camera exploded in Hoganís face leading to the pin.)

Does anyone remember the particulars about this? A friend of mine always said that it's never been explained to his satisfaction. Was it a way to keep Hogan from jobbing to Bret Hart?

The original plan in 1993 was to bring Hogan in, give him a world title run as sort of a "welcome back" gift, and then have him put over Bret Hart at SummerSlam to cement the Hitman as a main eventer. Hogan, however, pulled his usual political bullshit and said he didn't want to put Hart over. Since Hogan wrestled less than a half-dozen times for the WWF in his comeback, Vince figured that he didn't need the aggrevation and settled upon the idea for Hogan to lose to Yoko at KotR. It is surprising how Hogan agreed to be so soundly beaten, as well (Yoko kicked out of the legdrop and Bonzaied Hogan a couple of times after the match). I believe there was also some Vince/Hogan animosity over the Zaharian steroid trials, though I'm not sure about the particulars.

A moment I would have loved to see: After Austin refers to HHH being backstage, the camera cuts to HHH in his dressing room, holding up an action figure. "Level 5 Gundam. Seven months." jeff. stolen from a friend of mine...
