Hogan as a heel in 96' 97' was hilarious. It cracked me up
K C (9 months ago)
It doesn't get mentioned much but Luger was one of the most over wrestlers in 1997. That's why they put the belt on him here.
.skyNet (21 days ago)
that torture rack move was and still is fire, its why no one uses that move anymore! too legit !

lightningsmokerXx (1 year ago)
To me Lex Luger was just another guy in the chaos that was WCW , he was one of those guys that disappeared when you were a kid from WWF and went to WCW with all the other big names like Macho Man and he just became one of the guys there. There wasn't anything special about his ring gear or anything like that. Never disliked him, but was never wild about him WCW....and even if WWF even tho he had the look /body i was never crazy for Lex Luger.
A timelessly great Showcase of The Total Package

I always found this match stupid, lex and hogan were already scheduled to wrestle in six days at road wild, (which hogan won)
antsman88 (1 year ago)
Cheap way to get ratings.
Leonard Aarons III (2 years ago)
I always felt like title reigns that went shorter than two weeks or more, did more harm than good to the person who wins it. In this case, I ruly and truly (even as a fan of Luger back then) couldn't figure out why they put the strap on Luger just to take it off of him barely a week later. This was pointless and an abject waste of time. (Don't get me started on what we got later this year. Hogan should not have lost the title until Starrcade to Sting. Luger should've put up a valiant fight and lost here at Nitro. Get a rematch at Hog Wild, then lose again.) Even before we got to Starrcade, they still found a way to muck up its best storyline to date. Least they were consistent about things...

Samuel Orlich that’s what made it so great. It was a complete shock

They did it because it was Nitro's 100th episode. And, because the NWO's run up to that point was almost equivalent to Goldberg's undefeated streak. The way it was done was brilliant. Although I agree with them taking it away from Luger the following Sunday at the pay per view, it was still a ratings giant that night and a complete surprise.

hogan with title belt + nwo + jimmi hendrix + michael buffer = best entrance ever the best time for wrestling was from bash of the beach 96 ( formation of nWo ) until wrestlemania XX
Michael Burke (16 days ago)
I agree, wrestling just went downhill after Mania XX

I was 11 years old when saw this good old days of my childhood memories
SarahsKnight0 (1 year ago)
I was 12 years old, too, I believe. Seeing the first (at least as far as I knew) major defeat of the nWo was beyond awesome for me at the time. I couldn't have despised them more. And then to make it even sweeter all of the WCW side came out to celebrate with Luger.
trill 29 I was 12 and this was a huge moment in wrestling!

I was so disappointed that he won lmao. Hated anything that wasn't nwo

Yeah it just sucked he lost the title back to hogan 5 days later at road wild 1997

Me too! I still think it's the biggest reaction I've ever had to wrestling!

instead of jarrett luger should have been world champ as the total package

I always wondered why Luger walked around with his lips pursed all the time.

for some reason when winter time rolls around i get infatuated with these GLORY days of wrestling...mAN WCW delivered a GREAT fucking product during 1997 !!!!

Part of that is owed to the nWo. There was just no way Vince and the WWE could ever make the nWo work in today's scene, let alone the WCW (r.i.p.)
EH Wallace (6 years ago)
I think Hogan coming out to Voodoo Child is brilliant.
mjstory1976 (6 years ago)
@Zackvanhalen I agree 96-98 were the best years for WCW. After that it was pretty terrible
SarahsKnight0 (1 year ago)
Yeah, not a big fan of the storyline after Hulk Hogan became a face again and the nWo seemed to completely disband. I guess that part where it was older wrestlers vs "the new blood" in 2000 or so was okay, but pretty much after mid or late-99, there just seemed to be way too much switching back and forth between faces and heels to make it entertaining or the slightest bit believable. And then there were other ridiculous things starting to come about like that Ms. Hancock (I think her name was?) doing stripteases in the ring ,and Sting getting into a match with some vampire emo where the rules were the winner was whoever SET THE OTHER GUY ON FIRE first.

zackvanhalen (6 years ago)
This was the peak of WCW in my opinion.
QueensTHOROUGH (1 year ago)
zackvanhalen I feel like it was too. The end for me was when sting won the title. That was the last of the best of the nwo. It was all downhill from there as I wasn't a fan of splitting the nwo in two and then having other wrestlers that originally hated the nwo join the woldpac. I never got over syxx not coming back.

shizeninho cause PG back then was different the PG now
Chad Chadwickson (6 years ago)
Luger played a key role in the success of WCW... He picked up the WCW banner and ran with it when Sting disappeared. Probably the most underrated star in WCW or WWE at the time.
BlackenedForLife (6 years ago)
Luger is underrated!!!
Kratos27 (6 years ago)
luger faced hogan from 90's if he faced hogan of the 80's that hogan can kill any luger shape!!!

Another one of the problems with being live...you know for sure you'll miss something since the matches will continue during the commercial break.

shizeninho (8 years ago)
wrestling was so cool and exciting back then... how did they fuck it up so bad.

Did you hear that entrance for hogan. Hulkamania huh...more like Egomania!!!
rowejam072000 (8 years ago)
hogan, im commin for u nigga!!!
Martin Steell (8 years ago)
One of WCW greatest ideas was turning hogan heel, WWE and john cena should have taken notes.
81carlos (8 years ago)
@Mutough This was the 100th episode of Monday Nitro and wanted to make it a special main event.Luger deserved this victory and should've held the title much longer,like in his first reign.
TheDarkBoof (8 years ago)
@Mutough So should have Goldberg beating Hogan for the title
andre ellis (8 years ago)
kevin bush (8 years ago)
Luger should of held the belt till fall brawl.
Mutough (8 years ago)
This is a good example of why WCW failed. Lex beating Hulk for the title should've been sold on PPV.
JollaP1 (8 years ago)
Here's hoping wrestling can get this popular and exciting again.... Serious crowd reactions!!!
Slacker4LiFe247 (8 years ago)
Michael Buffer could make a funeral sound exciting. He could really hype a main event up
MrGlasspider (9 years ago)
Hogan's clean job. By the way.
bournesupreme (9 years ago)
imo, Hollywood Hogan is the greatest heel of all time. No disrespect to Luger, but Hogan was the real Total Package: mic skills, wrestling, look, crowd reaction..etc. It makes me sad looking at this video and seeing how agile he used to be. He can barely move these days. I love his stiff wrestling style when he was a heel. He really tried to fuck people up. best wrestling gear, best gimmick, best heel of all time.
