New Customs: Deluxe NWO Hollywood Hogan and Christian April 26, 2008Posted by skribbel24 in Customs.
Hulk Hogan reinvented wrestling twice: first during the birth of Hulkamania, and second during the birth of the NWO. Hulkamania in 1984 made wrestling a worldwide pop-culture phenomenon and an unbelievably popular sport. When it lost steam in the late 90s at the wake of the steroid scandal, wrestling became “cool” again when Hogan formed the NWO and became Hollywood Hogan. As Hollywood, he managed to redefine the heel character. Rather than the traditional “bad guy,” Hogan gave birth to a more realistic, street-smart villain, with none of the usual wrestling gimmicks and devices. Say what you want about him, but he is truly, well, “immortal.” Here he is, the second coming of Hulk Hogan, in Deluxe Aggression form.
Christian could have been WWE’s next main eventer. I have no idea why they chose not to pass the ball to him at the time when the “peepulation” was gaining a lot of steam, but Christian and the “Peeps” are lucky that TNA was around. Here is a custom of Christian as part of the suicide blondes with Edge, one of the most entertaining tag teams during the Attitude era:
