The idea for this discussion comes from a recent Hogan interview were he said he wanted to originally turn heel against Ultimate Warrior at mania. Wrestlinginc then mentioned a note from Bischoff's autobiography were he noted that when he convinced Hulk to turn heel at Bash at the Beach he had a backup plan set and had Sting agree to turn in case Hogan backed out at the last minute. So this brings us to today's topic. Could the NWO have had as much momentum and crossover appeal if it had been Sting instead of Hogan who had been revealed as the third man? Would it have led to just as big a ratings boost as it was with Hogan? Would it have reshaped the industry just as much? What would have happened to Hogan if he hadn't turned face and how would Sting's career look today?
