The Alliance to End Hulkamania was a professional wrestling stable in World Championship Wrestling in 1996.


The Alliance to End Hulkamania was an alliance between the Dungeon of Doom and the Four Horsemen, two of WCW's heel stables, formed in an attempt to get rid of Hulk Hogan. They decided to end "Hulkamania" at the Uncensored pay-per-view on March 24, 1996, in Tupelo, Mississippi. They had a "Tower of Doom" match with three levels of steel cage that they were going to use to get rid of Hogan. The Horsemen were in one cage, the regular members of the Dungeon of Doom were in another, and two large wrestlers who the Dungeon recruited for this event, The Ultimate Solution and Ze Gangsta (Hogan's former World Wrestling Federation nemesis Zeus), were in the bottom cage. The Ultimate Solution was originally named The Final Solution, but following complaints from Jewish organizations to the Turner corporate offices, the name was changed. Hogan teamed with his friend and former Mega Powers teammate Randy Savage, who had also been embroiled in a feud with the Four Horsemen (specifically Ric Flair, to whom he had lost the WCW World Heavyweight Championship twice in the preceding four months).

The Mega Powers ended up winning the match when several members of the Alliance could not get along. Lex Luger was associated with the Dungeon of Doom via manager Jimmy Hart but turned on them during the match by "accidentally" knocking out Ric Flair and causing him to be pinned. The match was universally panned by critics and fans alike, and is often cited as one of the worst Pay Per View main events of all time, due to its confusing and inconsistent rules, and poor production.

The Alliance ended after the match and the Horsemen and Dungeon started a long feud against each other which would end with the arrival of the New World Order in WCW.
