Good god Kidman was skinny here, did Russo seriously ever believe he would become world champ?

Anyways, that's what Awesome stated in his shoot interview several years back. I guess he considers Hogan family as he said he was implemental in getting the job with WCW as ECW wasn't paying him.

Given that Russo was capable of making fun of JR's Bell's Palsy, which he's since regretted, taking his frustrations out on a relative of Hogan came as no surprise. Even so, it seems like a swing and a miss to me. Mike Awesome was a cousin of Horace Hogan on his mother's side whereas Hulk Hogan is his uncle on his father's side. There was no actual blood relation between Hulk Hogan and Mike Awesome.

In any event, it's a shame to see someone's career flushed like that through no fault of their own.

Kidman's ok, but the main event scene wasn't his thing. Hogan/Awesome or Hogan/Booker would've been better as a feud at least it would've been somewhat even.

Mike Awesome felt that he got the 70's gimmick because he was related to Hogan and had a plan for him to fail there in WCW.
