Cena is replacable. Hogan wasn't. WWE would miss Cenas merch selling, but that could be replacing by a megapush to a returning Jeff Hardy or a uber Rey Mysterio push.

Hogan leaving in the mid to late 80s would have fucked the WWF up really bad.

Hw can you even compare the two? Hogan is a legend in the wrestling business. Cena is the current face of the division but he will never be remembered by people after retiring as Hogan is.

Hogan. Cena is not even in the picture. The following things worked in Hogan's favor:
  1. Hogan was almost unanimous GOD when he had that run and that is why the same storyline of building up a heel, monster or otherwise and sending him to lose to Hogan worked for so long. Vince cannot afford to cross him at that time for he meant actual kickstart and establishment of business, not just continuance. Now, he can get Cena to come in and say Ryback will take care of Punk. He could not even imagine that in the mid 80s. It happened much later with Warrior and it screwed up big time and they had to bring back Hogan.
  2. Hogan had creative control atleast according to stories wherever he went. He can say no. Cena does not look like he can do it to Vince.
  3. Hogan had other promotions to go to and like NWA/AWA/JCP/WCW and he would have taken the crowd with him in his peak leaving a merely competing and not yet dominant WWF high and dry if he had chosen to. Vince would have had no choice but to concede to his wishes.
  4. Hogan and Vince together brought out the revolution in pro-wrestling with Hogan being the actor and Vince with his team being the brain behind. Both had to be there to work. Hogan atleast had the direction once it started and he could have taken the Hulkmania around wherever he went. But Vince did not have that choice for at that time he had everything invested in Hogan and wrestling kayfabe was in doubt and not completely broken.
  5. There was no internet, backstage news and so much source of information then like now about what happens behind the scenes. So the fans get to know and believe what they see. That being one of the reasons the original screwjob not getting as much attention as montreal screwjob even though it was for women's world title when it meant something. So, now if Cena goes out, most of us would know why he went out and Vince to an extent control the damage through his PR machinery. Then, had Hogan gone to AWA/NWA in 1986 and done a damaging promo on WWF where he was the top star, it would have caused serious damage.

They both have power, but they both knew vince was in charge. If you want to know the truth, i think at his peak HBK had more than either of them, as far as pull with vince. And got away with more bullshit.


But nobody had as much power as hogan in WCW. he had creative control in his contract, and was the only guy ever who did. I also think Andre the giant pretty much had free reign to do whatever the hell he wanted.

Hulk Hogan, for sure. He was truly the draw, to the extent that other wrestlers thanked him for putting food on their families' tables, to the extent that the company would have been doing significantly less damage or arguably even have folded outright without him. Now, the WWE is a machine. In 2012 Cena is obviously their most valuable asset and they would stumble significantly, but not enough to stop altogether. Hence Hogan being the answer here.

Kind of has nothing to do with the question but okay.
