Re: Who was more important for marketing Hogan or Michael Jordan?

Jordan was far bigger, he's a legitimate sports icon. No matter how big you get in wrestling, you're always gonna be looked at as a circus act by the general public. It's something that you can never live down. Even Rock, who's by far the biggest mainstream star ever in the business, will never be able to get past this built in image. He could win an Oscar and they'd still look at him as "just a wrestler".
