Not to be that guy or anything but Mr Perfect’s WWF theme was already a ripoff of a very famous movie theme

I’m also a dairy Farmer from Ireland! So that’s at least 2 loyal patrons!


It is amazing to me just how often Jarrett would getting a relatively good push and he was still able to leave companies and show up so quickly on TV. I mean when he left WCW here he appeared on WWF tv soon after and did the same when he left WWF in 99. I’m not surprised that he was always getting hired, I’ve always loved Jarrett and thought he was great!

hogan was already using voodoo child at this point. the long nwo theme is because of awful dubbing. i know this because the month before they had rodman on the show when Nitro was in Chicago and they opened the show with the nwo pulling up to the arena in a limo while voodoo child was playing. cant believe 100 grand was wasted to get a song that would be dubbed over years later,


Hogan is also lip synching Voodoo Child at the top of the ramp (specifically: “…stand up next to a mountain And I chop it down with the edge of my hand”)

…also when the music starts again in the ring, Hogan looks above and states “Jimi, hold on a minute Jimi”
