Re: Take A Bow For The New Revolution (Mark Madden rants on the nWo)
Good stuff. I remember watching WCW all through 1997 looking forward to Sting vs. Hogan. My memory of that Starrcade is that the match ups were weird (Nash no-show I think) and it seemed like a pretty thin card that was solely built on the main event. I was stoked when the main event hit b/c even though it was WCW, surely they couldn't screw this up...right? Sting crushes him for 15 minutes and gets a clean pin. I was watching it with my buddy and when Nick Patrick counted three we couldn't believe it. They had paid off their big angle for the year with that finish. The Bret Hart comes out and, honestly, just made it worse. No emphatic victory, nothing resolved, just more of the same....I agree with Madden that that moment was the beginning of the end.
