Re: Hogan to the AWA - In 1990!
Hogan was earning millions annually by that time - and although his first run was in decline, he was at the time at the tail end of a hugely successful programme with Earthquake [John Tenta] - SS 1990 in which Hogan/Quake was the star attraction registered a scorching buyrate of over 500,000. Hogan was still the biggest star in the world, even though he didn't hold the title. I think it would've been big business. Even though business was down for WWF between 1990-1993, Hogan still carried them through that time. Who knows where the WWF would've ended through transitional period, had it not been for Hogan? I certainly think the landscape of the industry would've ended up significantly different had Hogan went to AWA - would Warrior have been given longer to run as the top guy, or would Bret have "stepped up" sooner? Would WCW have managed to sign Hulk?
Here for Hulk Hogan - the biggest star in the history of sports entertainment, and one of greatest pop culture icons of all-time.
30 years later, and still the man - BROTHER!
