Seven months earlier, Warrior and Vince McMahon parted on very sour terms. The face-painted superhero was fired almost immediately after coming back through the curtain at the 1991 SummerSlam after trying to hold McMahon up for a heftier deal in the preceding weeks.

The bad blood and uneasy feelings may have continued to linger, but McMahon, knowing that Hulk Hogan was bound for hiatus, needed star power come the spring of 1992.

It was already stunning enough when Hogan's victory over Sid Justice in the main event was a disqualification. But that was secondary the moment a rehired Warrior's music hit, and Jim Hellwig gunned it down the long Hoosierdome aisle.
