Eric Bischoff - Bruce Prichard debate highlights: Hulk Hogan in DX?
Thanks to WrestlingINC.com reader Kerry Morris @chitownot for sending in these highlights from this afternoon's Eric Bischoff - Bruce Prichard debate, moderated by Chris Jericho: The show started late because Jericho wanted to finish his lunch. The crowd was not happy. Most of the show was old info, but here are some interesting items:
Prichard said that "Macho Man" Randy Savage was extremely drunk the morning he called Vince McMahon to quit. It was the Road Warrior Hawk who came up with the Doink character.
When Scott Hall and Kevin Nash's contracts came up in 1996, Vince McMahon really only wanted Scott Hall to stay. McMahon didn't care that Nash was leaving. And here’s the biggest one of them all as there was an idea by WWF creative in late 1997 to have Hulk Hogan come back and be the leader of DX. Hogan would then pass the torch to Steve Austin and drop the belt to him at WrestleMania 14.
