This is an ego project. Complete and total vanity. The subject of this tape is Hollywood Hulk Hogan and his 1998-1999 run in WCW. The entire tape makes Hogan look like a God and his challengers (Sting, Lex Luger, Macho Man and more) look like complete and utter chumps.

WCW was a company run by yes-men and imbeciles. It's not even around anymore. It refused to make new stars and believed that Hollywood Hulk Hogan was their one and only chance to remain a top company. This tape is testament to that.

This is not only a wrestling tape, it is also a propaganda piece. Every single match is edited to only show Hogan beating on his opponents. Any part where Hogan was looking weak has been left on the cutting room floor. All interviews with fellow wrestlers (each and every one a Hogan stooge) are complete fluff pieces and the actual Hollywood Hogan interview included here is hilarious as you see him bury the competition and place himself on an alter so high it strains your neck.

Why the 10 stars? Because it does make Hollywood Hogan look like God and it does make the rest of the roster look disposable. This kind of blind idolatry has to be seen to be believed. It obviously helps if you are a Hollywood Hulk Hogan fan, but I don't think that is absolutely necessary. Any wrestling fan will love what is on hand here. Anyone who has ever chuckled at other people's ego problems will also get a kick out of this.
