press conference started in a professional and
friendly fashion. As the conference progressed
Mr Hogan and Mr Flair started exchanging words
and temperatures rose to an extent that Flair
finally physically attacked Hogan, with Hogan
and his table falling off the stage. A media frenzy
followed with many fans shocked and starting chanting
Hogan's name, and he was assisted to the back
for medical attention. Both media and fans speculated
with each other as to how much of the press conference
may have been scripted, and how much really got
out of hand. In any event, it was an entertaining
and wild affair, and only adds to the Hulk Hogan
VS Ric Flair series of matches in Australia being
a "don't miss" attraction. Wooooo!
