In the early 1990s, this was a big money-match waiting to happen.
Why didn't they pull the trigger?
They had opportunities, such as Wrestlemania 9 or King of the Ring 1993.
Bret was the young, up and coming star; Hogan was an established celebrity. It's simple:
- Face-vs-face match.
- 20 minutes of back and forth fighting.
- Hogan hulks up, points at Bret, does the boot-kick, yada-yada.. you know the rest
- Hogan goes for the leg drop but misses.
- Bret locks in the Sharpshooter.
- Hogan taps after 5-6 minutes in the Sharpshooter.
- Handshake, Hug, Kiss, Fireworks ... yadayada
- Torch is passed.
Shame we never got this.
