just thought his answer to the later question had a sense of BS to it...

Imo Austin used that an excuse to not get in the ring with Hogan the biggest icon in history. He saw what happened to Rock at WM 18 and he had no intentions of being showed up by Hogan.

WWE offered Austin a match with Hogan at WM 04/05/06 and each time he turned it down. Some try to claim Hogan refused to the job which isnt true he said many times he didnt care who won. Hogan has also said many times that he was pushing for the match but it was Austin who didnt want it to happen.
