Default Re: How does Antonio Inoki compare to Hogan strictly from a drawing perspective?

It's unfortunate that things don't align culturally. Inoki was never embraced by the North American wrestling audience like Hogan was in Japan/Asia. I'm also not big on the numbers, but I find it hard to imagine placing Inoki over Hogan. It should also be noted that the sheer population of the Asian market lends itself to Inoki's huge drawing numbers.

So, while the numbers may lend an argument to the Inoki camp, I think Hogan has more of a global presence.
