Hollywood Hogan vs. Roddy Piper from WCW’s Starrcade 1996

Recap from TJ Hawke:

Hollywood Hogan (w/ Ted DiBiase, Vincent, & Miss Elizabeth) vs. Roddy Piper
Roddy was in control to start the match. Hogan seemed on the verge of cutting Piper off, but Piper quickly fought back by using his belt. Piper got distracted by DiBiase, and Hogan then finally cut him off. Hogan was in control for a while. Piper made a comeback after hitting a vertical suplex. The Giant showed up. He went to give Roddy a chokeslam, while a fan ran into the ring. Roddy escaped the chokeslam and applied a sleeper on Hogan. Hogan actually passed out.

Kevin Nash and Scott Hall tried to attack Roddy after the match, but they failed.

This was a very flat main event. Roddy and Hogan worked relatively hard, but they really did not bring the intensity required to make up for their lack of athletic ability at this stage in their careers. To put it succinctly, the match was very boring.

Match Rating: 1/2*
