Re: Steve Austin Talks Hulk Hogan,Jerry Lawler Heart Attack,Cm Punk And More.
As I said in another thread, Hogan said in an interview on Hot 97 that the reason Austin/Hogan never took place was because there was "business heat". The story I've heard for years is that neither man wanted to put the other over. I remember dave 1981 saying that he read that Hogan only jobbed to Rock if he could get 1 more title reign afterwards.
Not to mention, Austin still had problem with Hogan from WCW.
What was dumb was Hogan challenging Austin in 2005, knowing damn well Austin couldn't have really worked at that time. I call it a clash of egos, same reason we never got Hogan/Bret or why Hogan/Piper never put the other over clean.
