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".

Episode 99 - Superhero Showdown Returns!

The much requested Superhero Showdown episode makes a return where we pit your favourite comic/movie/tv characters against each other to determine who's slighty better! Also we get into news of the new Civil War line-up, Star Wars The Force Awakens, Assassins Creed and undoubtably something else to do with whatever this podcast is about. Thanks for listening!
