Sorry, but I could only find the second half of this match on youtube.
I think this match gets overlooked in tag team history, but just look at the names here. We have all three transcendental wrestlers in Hogan, Austin, and Rock. This was like a dream match of Attitude Era vs the original NWO in Hogan, Hall & Nash. As far as name recognition alone this has to be the biggest match in tag team history.
The match itself wasn't bad either. They teased just enough of Hogan vs Rock to get their WM match over, plus the drama of the crowd was already starting as Hogan was getting cheers even when he pinned the Rock.
Rock took a clean loss to Hogan which was obvious pay up front to Hogan for Rock going over at WM. There was also a little teasing of Hogan vs Austin, which is a dream match that never took place, and is too late now anyway. This match is as close as it got to that.
Note to the mods. I apologize if this one violates the time line rules for this forum. Its right on the cusp, and was based upon mostly 1990s WCW vs WWF. If it crosses the line and has to be deleted I will understand.
