Following his departure at WrestleMania VIII, Hulk Hogan returns by making his Monday Night Raw debut to address Money Inc.’s attack on Brutus Beefcake. John & Wai discuss a bizarre sit-down interview between Hogan and Vince McMahon where Hogan addresses “tabloid terrorism” amid the mid-90s steroid scandal.
Plus: Yokozuna’s destruction of “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan leads to real-world controversy with the American flag, the awful commentary of Rob Bartlett, the Manhattan Center, Giant Gonzales, Crush, Bobby WHO?, Brian Knobbs outworks Shawn Michaels, and more news and notes from February 1993.
This event was chosen by Espresso Executive Producer, Ryan Charkow.
