Re: The Other Side: Hulk Hogan's place in history
Hogan revolutionized wrestling in America, taking a page from Billy Graham and Gorgeous George except as a top face. It was not about being the fanciest wrestler or a great mat technician. It was all about keeping the fans involved in the match by working them. Allowing the heel to beat up on him for a while, make a sudden comeback, and use a move set to finish the match. Since Hogan, this formula has been used by the likes of Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels, Rock, Austin, Cena, etc in the WWE.
