I started watching back in 92/93 time frame when El Matador , the Rockers, Hi Energy etc were bringing the quality, hi-flying wrestling entertainment. Without accesss to the internet, I never figured out why he disappeared.
This week going thru the early CRZ recaps, I notice that he actually was brought back several times and kept getting thrown out. CRZ addresing the smarks of the day presumed that I as the reader know the backstory. I don't. What was the story?
15 years and a lifetime latter, coming back after he was long forgotten and on the brink of suicide when he got a chance at wrestling redemeption, he still blew it!
Surely one of the biggest tragedies that has not ended in a premature death right now in wrestling?
Nice writeup. I look forward to your series on Nitro. Its interesting revisiting that era based upon what we know about how everything ended up. I'd love for Hogan to get at least a one day run with the title.
