Who was more important for marketing Hulk Hogan or Michael Jordan?

I'm talking in terms of popularity, drawing power, and importance each guy brought to their respective sports. Yes I know it's kind of a silly question to ask on a wrestling forum, but I'm interested to read peoples' responses to this.

Re: Who was more important for marketing Hogan or Michael Jordan?

Jordan was far bigger, he's a legitimate sports icon. No matter how big you get in wrestling, you're always gonna be looked at as a circus act by the general public. It's something that you can never live down. Even Rock, who's by far the biggest mainstream star ever in the business, will never be able to get past this built in image. He could win an Oscar and they'd still look at him as "just a wrestler".

What everyone really wants for Christmas:

Michael Jordan is among 2 or 3 greatest, most influential athletes ever, and his brand had a 2.2 billion net income last year alone.

Jordan's shoes still sell like hot cakes and the Jordan icon basically is guaranteed money. It's not even close.

Thank you Edge.
