Been there, done that, and got the T-shirt, son, and you're just doing reruns.

I wouldn't have been surprised if he won the Rumble and went on to beat Yokozuna.



Hogan likes to get his wins back.

He would've either won the WWE Championship once again or he would've still main evented the show, but also place the title in a secondary role like at WrestleMania VIII

Hogan doesn't get enough credit online, and that's only online, and Bret Hart get's too much credit online. I'm a big hip-hop fan, and a DJ at Hot 97 in NY, the biggest hip-hop radio station in probably the world, is a HUGE Wrestling fan, and when he can he does a segment interviewing wrestlers and Hogan was on there one time, and the segment is YouTube if you wanna find it, it's Wrestling With Rosenberg (Peter, not Eminem's manager Paul). In it Hogan claims that he's put over anyone Vince has asked him to put over, even saying he regretting putting Warrior over, and he said that there was heat between him and Bret, because when Hogan was on his way out Bret assumed he'd get the rub from Hogan, and Hogan had already agreed to lose to Yokozuna, they sat down with Vince and Vince told them both that Hogan was told to put over Yokozuna, not Bret. Hogan claims he wouldn't have had a problem putting over Bret, but that just wasn't the agreement, and I tend to believe that for a few reasons. One, Bret is a bitter person, he's seemed to have eased up a bit, but he's always seem to be bitter. Secondly, because the strongest rumor is circulating from WMX8 is that the original planned match was Hogan vs Austin, but they couldn't decide who would take the loss. Austin turned that match down claiming he didn't trust Hogan, and given the WCW history, I believe that. Austin now says that he would've wanted that match, but I think he's speaking in retrospect. Oh, and by the way, Hogan did the job to the Rock, so would it really've mattered if it was Austin or The Rock if he was gonna job anyway. Third if anyone in the history of ever is to complain about not being put over as a star is on the way out it better not be Bret, I don't care what country or planet he was in, he wouldn't have gotten "screwed" if he just would've agreed to job to Shawn on the way out. All that said, I think the main event would've been Bret vs Hogan, and I think it would've been similar to today's Punk vs Cena, as Hart would've got the win simply because he needed it more. 10 Years is a long run at the top for anyone and I think they would've started looking to the future, no because Hogan wasn't needed, but because you just have to, and Bret was over. I'll go as far as to say without the Hogans and Cenas in wrestling there would be no Harts or Punks. Not because I love Hogan, hell my avatar is Christian for fuck's sake, I'm clearly more into the Hart's and Punks, but I respect Cena and Hogan and enjoy them for what they are. They are larger than life personalities capable of packing arena's and getting over allowing Bret to come in and steal the show, cause we know damn well his ass ain't selling it. I'm getting way off topic but look at Wrestlemania 3, What was the Main Event? Hogan vs Andre... they packed that stadium, what was the best match of the night? Steamboat and Savage. And I know what some of you are thinking? What about the attitude era? Austin was more Hogan than Bret, and I'll tell you why. If you can get down to the raw basics of the attitude era, you have any other era just with swear words and blood. The attitude era was based in a grittier atmosphere so the star appeared grittier, but you still have a good guy (Austin) trying to overcome the odds against a evil (McMahon) and rough gallery of foes (Mick Foley, Undertaker, Kane, The Rock) it was basic storytelling wrapped in cool packaging, and after his neck injury Steve damn sure wasn't the king of headlocks and submissions. Rant over, sorry.

Well, I actually agree with most of what you said, and I believe Hogan story about that putting Bret over, but there is one thing that always bothered me about that, and that is the tug-of-war photo they took holding the WWF belt between each other.

But Bret is a bitter old guy who always wanted the rub from the bigger stars. All he does is moan and bitch about those old dinosaurs and cartoon characters (Hogan, Andre and Warrior). Bret is so full of himself that in an interview he was discussing about a match he had with Andre, when Andre pinned him, Bret claims he had his shoulder up so Andre never pinned him... FFS, it is a work, Bret have problems with acknowledgeing a clean defeat on a house show to one of the biggest wrestlers ever and Bret was a jobber at the time. I love Brets book and shoot interviews, but I still shake my head on several times while reading or watching them, since he often sometimes contradicts a lot of stuff he claims.

As for Austin not trusting Hogan, and claiming he refuse to lay down for him if the match ever happen. What amuses me is that Internetfans seems to totally accept that, whilst if Hogan would have claimed he would refuse to lose to Austin the IWC would explode with hate. Hogan did how ever offer to do the job. Austin was just too stupid to wanna make the match happen.


I personally think that Hogan should have been at WM 10 to wrestle Bret for the WWF title with Bret winning since it would have made most sense at the time.

One thing Hulk should had done was at least put Bret Hart over. Also I feel they could had worked a classic match together

Vince made a ton of errors after WM6 with Hogan. After VKM realized Warrior wasn't the answer he should have had a rematch with Hogan at WM7. Then at WM8 Hogan should have went against Flair in a Title vs. Title Match. After Hogan beat Flair and unified the WWE and (NWA) Heavyweight Titles. He should have lost the belts in a rematch where either SId or Flair put Hogan out of action.
Instead of Flair losing to Perfect on RAW why not have Hogan run Flair out of the WWF at WM9. Then at WM10 Hogan can get his rematch for the title and put Hart over.

Bret Hart, Bruno, Ric Flair, and Hulk Hogan are all insane and think they were bigger then they were. I dont think any of these guys understand wrestling isn't legit.

Shawn Michaels and Scott Hall wouldn't have had as much time to shine or to tell the story they did in a legendary way in their classic Ladder match which was the star turning moment for Shawn Michaels and cemented Scott Hall as the most popular wrestler in the world at that point. Bret Hart wouldn't have been allowed as long to tell the story he did with Owen Hart nor would he have had his big WrestleMania moment as he did in closing the show and then being hoisted on to the shoulders of all the other babyface wrestlers.

Still to this day i consider WrestleMania 10 to be one of the greatest of all time which saw classics in Michaels/Hall and Bret/Owen and also a great match that has always slipped under the radar in Savage/Crush which ended up being the last time we ever saw Randy Savage in a WWE ring. Had Hulk Hogan been around and wrestling at WrestleMania 10 he would have taken all the main focus in the build up towards the PPV on tv and at the actual PPV as he always demanded just like a year prior when he hadn't even been in WWE for a year.

Slightly off topic, but on the subject of WM 10, I am sure I either read or saw an interview stating that Savage was unhappy with HBK and Hall after their match had overrun meaning his match with Crush was cut short. i am sure he had said something like "great match you selfish bastard" to HBK.

As far as Hogans potential involvement in WM10 i tend to agree he would have been in the main event as he was a massive draw, but I also agree that he should have dropped the belt to Hart, in what could have been an awesome match. Also agree with MANTI TEO in as much as that Vince made errors with regards to Hogan after WM6. Flair vs Hogan, Hogan vs Warrior II and Hogan Vs Hart are matches that all should have happened around this time

What should have happened obviously if Hogan stayed was to have Bret Hart vs Hogan for the title. That would have drawn big back then. But I honestly believe Hogan would have been too insecure about losing his spot to Bret. That and the fact he was arguing with Vince over money (which Hogan himself confirms).
