Where were you on July 7th, 1996? Back in the summer of '96, a Clinton was in the White House and the wrestling world was experiencing its greatest transition. There was a War taking place on cable television while Attitude was about to change the look and direction of WWE forever.
Twenty years later and the name Clinton continues to radiate throughout the presidential discussion while the wrestling world has evolved once again. This time through social media and the introduction of an exclusive Network devoted solely to the craft and preserving its memory.
However, none of this would have been possible if not for the man who helped launched professional wrestling into the mainstream: Hulk Hogan. While not the greatest (not even top 50) technical wrestler to lace a pair of boots, the name Hulk Hogan is synonymous with the industry.
And on this day twenty years ago in Daytona Beach, Hulk Hogan would once again change the landscape of professional wrestling with a Leg Drop on Randy Savage; formally introducing the New World Order to the wrestling masses alongside Scott Hall and Kevin Nash.
Yes, today was a dark day for millions of Hulkamaniacs around the world when Hulk turned Hollywood.
