Re: Why did Hogan job to The Rock, but not Austin?
Do any of you people even care about facts?
Steve was never the first choice to face Hulk, that is a indisputable fact.
He was definitely
in the discussion to face Austin.
Steve was arranged to lose the undisputed title to Hunter at Wrestlemania x8 but turned it down then was slated to lose to Hall until he got the finish changed the day of Mania. Steve has said in many candid interviews he was only offered Hulk once he retired for a couple of years then turned it down.
Of course he said that. What was he supposed to say? "I couldn't agree on a finish with Hogan, so I backed out and let The Rock have a better match with him than I would have"
Oh, ok then.
