WrestleMania VIII (8) Main Event Ending

There was a lot of excitement in the months leading up to WrestleMania 8. The long awaited dream match between Hulk Hogan and then WWF World Champion Ric Flair was what many fans had waited many years to see. However, we wouldn’t get that match. Instead, at WrestleMania 8, Ric Flair defended, and lost the World Title to Randy Savage, and Hulk Hogan faced Sid Justice.

Even though Savage and Flair wrestled for the World Title and traditionally, the World Title match would be the last match on the show. However, on this night, Hulk and Sid would be the last match on the show.

As is tradition in Hulk Hogan matches, he would eventually hit Sid with his patented leg drop finishing move but Sid kicked out, which never happened back in 1992 or before then. Right after that, Papa Shango ran out and attacked Hogan. He was supposed to run out and break up the pinfall attempt on Sid after the legdrop, but he was too late.

The Ultimate Warrior would make his surprise return to the WWF and run to the ring and help Hogan fight off Sid and Papa Shango. Warrior and Hulk posed together to end WrestleMania 8.
