• DDP Says Hulk Hogan’s 1996 Heel Turn Shut Down Turner’s Phone Lines
On a recent episode of Diamond Dallas Page’s & Jake The Snake Robert’s weekly ‘DDP Snake Pit’ podcast, the two Old School Wrestling Legend discussed the famous WCW Bash at the Beach 1996 heel turn of Hulk Hogan, which included the formation of the new World order (nWo).
Hogan’s turn is widely considered the single biggest and most historically important heel turn in professional wrestling history and just had its 26th anniversary earlier this month on July 7th.
Here’s what DDP said…
How the fans reacted:
“People took that sh*t personally. Because they believed in him. When Hulk did that, the letters that got sent to Turner Network. Even though he was like, ‘ah, the red & yellow, its getting old.’
When he flipped, the phones at Turner broadcasting were shut down. If it [the Internet back then] had any kind of place in the world, it shut the f**ker down.”
What type of messages the fans were leaving:
“’You son of a b*tch, my kids are crying’. They were so mad, and that showed you. ‘Wow, did that work!’”
