Re: Instances Of Hogan Using Creative Control/Politics
During Warrior's title reign, Hogan was still trying to hog the limelight. Was it him or Vince behind it? I don't know. Either way, it made Warrior's title seem less important.
Watch some of the PPV pre-shows. Warrior is the title holder, yet Hogan gets the majority of the focus. I was looking at an old WWF Magazine I have, and the "headline" match is the Hogan team. Hell, even WM6... yes, Warrior pinned Hogan cleanly, but when the ref went down, who got the first pinfall? Hogan. Would it have altered things THAT much to have had Warrior get a pin with the ref down, then Hogan, and then finally the Warrior actually getting the three count for the title? Of course not.
Hogan is an egotistical jackass. He did a lot for the business, but he also did a lot to ensure nobody truly overtook him in terms of fame, money, etc.
