Hogan screwed up last night, but the NewBlood in WCW was a bigger screwup. That was when someone would get "blood" all over but half the blood would miss the intended target. That had to have been the biggest blunder ever.
Of course WCW had many other blunders:
Mike Awesome in 2 straight taped segments
When they aired the segments out of order on Thunder
It looks like WWE is becoming more like WCW every day.
"Catching Hitler was neato!" "Next stop, Hirohito!" Bart Simpson
I think WCW screwups like that and things that just SUCKED (e.g. The White Castle of Fear promo, the Beach Blast mini-movie, etc.)are things that really can't be emulated. It's a legendary sort of craptitude. A malfunctioning motorcycle probably isn't even in the same league as a WCW f'up.

“It looks like WWE is becoming more like WCW every day.”
Which wouldn't be a bad thing if they were becoming more like WCW circa 1997. But WCW 2000 isn't a good thing, it's a bad thing.
There was one interesting image during the New Blood era that I'll never forget, though.
Sting was attacking Vampiro, and all of a sudden got the blood bath. It was if all Sting's strength disappeared or something... (whatever). But then the New Blood jumped Sting like a pack of wild animals, and eventually hung him over the crowd using his restraining harness and cord.
Then the lights went out, and we saw a bloodied Sting just kinda hanging back and forth over the crowd. It was an image that was burned into my mind for all eternity.
The rest of the New Blood thing (with the exception of Kidman calling out Hogan) was forgettable, to put it mildly.

In reference to Austin, today on WWE.com's By the Number's sidebar, it states Austin as the only WWE superstar in history to capture the WWE Title in three WrestleMania appearances, 14,15,17. I guess the WWE forgot Hogan winning it 5,7, and 9.
