I just find it ironic that Vince snatched the biggest star in AWA while 2 of his biggest stars (Snuka and Slaughter) would join AWA a few years later.

Re: Why Hulkamania almost never happened

The real question is: How the hell didn't GagneMania take off when Greg was being pushed?

Re: Why Hulkamania almost never happened

As stated Hulk Hogan was red hot before jumping back to the wwf. I think everything changes if Vince Sr. doesn't hand the keys over though. I believe Vince when he said that his dad never would have sold him his portion of the company if he knew what he was going to do the business.

Hulk Hogan would have ended up in the WWF anyways and be the top star imo. What I think would totally change things would be WM III if Hogan never came back which is the event imo that made the business really be stamped into the culture.

Re: Why Hulkamania almost never happened

Tell, me what did I lie about, Lyoto?

Or did you mean Meltzer talking out of his ass, since the bulk of the OP came from him.

And don't PM me no more.

You messaged me first sir. Some people like you abuse the internet and become insane. I do not blame you.

Re: Why Hulkamania almost never happened

Meltzer has said hundreds of times that Vince wanted Kerry for the national expansion in the 80's. get out of here with your nonsense Lyoto.
