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?

I'm thinking the WWF is using Hogan to get HHH over. Hulk put Rock over at Mania, and now he'll put Trips over at Backlash. I think they see what we see - Hogan will burn white-hot for a brief period but people will get sick of him soon.
