Re: Why did Hogan job to The Rock, but not Austin?

It was probably about the Hulkster and Austin not being a fan of one another. I doubt Hogan would have been in any position to tell Vince whether he wants to do the job or not. The Rock wanted to wrestle Hogan whether he lost or won the match because he idolized Hogan as a kid growing up. I guess Austin just didn't really care to wrestle against Hogan as much as The Rock did.

It would have been great to see Stone Cold vs Hulk Hogan but at least we got to see The Rock vs Hogan which will go down as one of the most biggest WrestleMania matches of all time when you take crowd atmosphere and the build-up into account.
