Bruce and Conrad have covered the Mega Powers exploding and Zeus, but what about the rest of Hogan's 1989? Learn more about the script for No Holds Barred, how Hogan taking a dump saved the movie, how the movie nearly didn't make theaters, and all about the Rumble, Survivor Series, and SummerSlam matches that year with fun sidebars on Honky, Schiavone, Bad News, and Sherri. When we get to 1990 you won't believe what Bruce was suggesting but Vince shut down, why Vince shut it down, hear a hilarious Pat Patterson quote, why the switch to Warrior, Hogan's attitude at the time, why Hogan was taking time off, who was against the switch, background on Tenta, something Bruce always thought was funny about Tenta, the reason Tugboat wasn't at ringside at SummerSlam, why the letter campaign from Tugboat for Hulk was done, why SummerSlam 90 wasn't a clean finish, and much more.
