WWE Continues to Learn from Hulk Hogan’s Mistakes with NWO Network Collection

Two new WWE Network collections are reportedly on the way in December: one of WWE’s best matches of 2018, and one all about the nWo, the WCW wrestling faction led by Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash, and Scott Hall. The nWo Collection is the latest in WWE’s initiative to help others learn from Hulk Hogan’s mistakes by featuring him prominently on WWE programming. Some might argue that it’s unclear how trotting the Hulkster out to spout catchphrases and pose at Saudi Arabian PPVs or producing Top Ten List videos or WWE Network collections about him actually teaches anyone anything, but WWE has repeatedly said that’s the only capacity in which they would work with Hogan again, so we have to assume it’s somehow true.

Hogan was fired from WWE in 2015 after a tape surfaced of the Hulkster unleashing a racist rant while being secretly filmed having sex with the wife of Florida radio shock jock Bubba the Love Sponge. In 2018, Hogan began making moves to prepare for a return to the company by apologizing for what he called “a few misspoken words,” though technically the words that were “misspoken” were n-words. Hogan and WWE first rubbed elbows together at a promotional event for HBO’s Andre the Giant documentary, and Hogan was later reinstated to WWE’s Hall of Fame.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
