Please allow me to give my infinite wisdom on this matter. I will never forget this night April 1, 1990. I remember I begged my parents to order the PPV and when they couldn't take my complaining anymore they called the cable company but it was too late. (Back in the day you needed to go to your cable provider to get a box to set up to get ppv) I sat in front of the tv and I could hear everything but the picture was a mess with white and black fuzzy lines but at very special moments you could see what was happening just enough to follow it. (just imagine porn channels all scrambled so you couldn't watch them, so you have a clue to what I was dealing with) The two biggest stars in the WWF (as it was called at the time) clashed in front of over 67,000 fans at Wrestlemania 6 in Toronto, Canada. You guessed it right, it was Hulk Hogan vs the Ultimate Warrior. Heading into the match, both were matched equally in size, strength, and fan base. Unlike Hogan's previous matches, this one wasn't a sure win. WWF had never pinned two babyfaces together in a Wrestlemania main event. Plus, neither Hogan or the Warrior had been pinned cleanly before the match in the WWF. When the Ultimate Warrior got out of the way of the Famous Hogan leg drop he got a 3-count pin on Hogan, the world was shocked, I was shocked. Hulk Hogan, the biggest name in wrestling lost cleanly. I cried, it was one of those moments that I will never forget. Looking back on it today, I'm glad I cried, it means I was emotional invested and it taught me early in life that sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. Even though my hero lost, that night I became a pro rasslin fan for life and knew deep down no matter how much my friends made fun of me for loving pro rasslin or telling me its fake I knew they could never and I mean NEVER take away the magic and joy it brings me.
Thank you Vince for the memories, greatly appreciated.
