I noticed that Flair used a bunch of signature spots in his match last night that we haven't seen from him in a while, so I was wondering: Do you all think that he just dug that stuff out because he was up against Hogan and they wanted to make it a big 80's nostalgia match? Or is it because Flair is now heel, and he hasn't been using those spots in the last few months because he considers them heel spots? (I suppose we'll know for sure on Sunday.)
Also, do you think it would be a good thing for Flair to join Hogan on the nostalgia train, or a bad thing?
Personally, I'm digging it for now, though it may get repetitive if over used.
One more question for those of you who have been watching longer than I: I really enjoyed Hogan/Flair last night, but it was a very formulaic match. That's what I liked about it, it was (by my tastes) a succesful combination of two formulae that haven't been combined very often. I know that they have met a few times before -- were those matches very similar affairs, with each wrestler hitting their signature spots and reveling in their particular schtick? Or were they something else entirely?

WCW was forcing Flair to talk, Eric cut the segment because of time. WWE was letting the man who made them celebrate the fans as they celebrated him. As bad as people talk about Hulk, this night belonged to the fan.
