    I remember this like it was yesterday. One of the most shocking moments, for me, in wrestling history. I thought, “No freaking way Hogan lays down for Goldberg.” But then, one…two…three…I popped HUGE and wrestling once again proved to me that it can surprise at any given moment! THAT’S why I keep watching the schlock they keep rolling out, for the one or two moments a year that it can make me feel like a kid again.

    • Never much of a WCW fan, but I know a lot of people recall this as one of their favorite times in wrestling.
