Hogan bad rap in the ring

Hogan gets a bad rap for being a shitty wrestler but I think thats undeserving. He had good matches with Flair, Warrior, Bockwinkel, Hennig, Orndorff, The Rock, Hansen, Muta, Inoki, Andre, Savage, HBK, etc. I think Hogans rep is bad for three reasons.

1. Vern told Hogan to never go down to a knee during a match - so Hogan no sold a ton of moves.

2. Later in his career his matches followed the same formula Hulk-up, you, comeback, leg drop win. But this formula captivated the audience and the fans chanted with Hogan.

3. His opponents were usually big lumbering monsters Zeus, Bundy, Killer Kahn, One Man Gang, Etc.

Hogan gets shit on for his in ring abilities because it was mostly a few punches and the big boot.

Not saying he didn't have some good matches, but, he didn't exactly have the biggest move set. He was better on the mic than in the ring. Had better matches in his younger days.

Re: Hogan bad rap in the ring

Never liked Hogan that much when I was younger, guys like Savage, Roberts and Warrior were much more entertaining.

He was carried in every good match he ever had. Go watch his match with Savage at Mania 5 and see what I mean. Even Andre carried him at WM 3 and he could barely move.

Thought he was performing this live in the ring during TNA. Misleading thread.

You do realize his was instructed to limit his ring work to avoid injury.

Thats actually the WWF/E style.
