Worst: Not Tonight
A quick recap: after having him lose the WCW Heavyweight Championship to William Scott Goldberg in the Georgia Dome, WCW’s Executive Committee gave Hulk Hogan a 3-month long “make-good” where he gets to wrestle celebrities and still main-event pay-per-views despite not being champion. He wrestled NBA star Karl Malone at Bash at the Beach, and now he’s set to face talk show host Jay Leno as the opening act for a Travis Tritt concert at Road Wild.
