Re: Why did Hogan job to The Rock, but not Austin?
Not to mention, Austin was in pretty bad shape. He says the match wouldn't be good because the styles are different but it's obvious that in 2002, Austin wasn't what he used to be. Rock was in good shape and pretty healthy, so it made sense to be Rock/Hogan.
I personally feel Austin didn't want to work with Hogan anyway. Guys like Austin and HBK are a different breed than Rock, they don't like jobbing as often as a guy like Rock. Fact is, Hogan/Austin didn't have to happen at WM, it could have happened at another PPV but it didn't. What's the excuse there, because Rock was first choice?
