The recurring concept of Uncensored was that it was an event that, in storylines, the (fictional) WCW Board of Directors had washed their hands of. Thus, each match on the card was ostensibly unsanctioned, meaning they were not subject to the normal rules of WCW-sanctioned wrestling matches. In reality, it was a normally-booked WCW show, albeit one with a tendency to feature more gimmick matches than usual. This notion, however, was downplayed during the last few years that it was part of the WCW PPV schedule. Hulk Hogan was featured in the main event of all six versions of the event. In 2014, All WCW pay-per-views were made available on the WWE Network.
Before the PPV Hulk Hogan's manager Jimmy Hart was kidnapped and tied up at an undisclosed location by Vader and Flair. During the match Hart escaped and joined The Renegade at ringside. During the match a masked man appeared and attacked Renegade, before returning to the back. Hogan was given the win over Vader when he dragged an interfering Ric Flair and touched all four turnbuckles, despite Flair not being the legal opponent in the match). After the match, a masked man appeared again, seemingly siding with Vader and Flair, before unmasking to reveal himself as Randy Savage and embracing Hogan, Renegade and Hart. Savage had tied up the first masked man backstage, who was then revealed to be Arn Anderson. Hogan's WCW World Heavyweight Championship was not on the line in the match
