just thought his answer to the later question had a sense of BS to it...

Good call. He clearly contradicted himself.

WWE offered Austin a match with Hogan at WM 04/05/06 and each time he turned it down. Some try to claim Hogan refused to the job which isnt true he said many times he didnt care who won. Hogan has also said many times that he was pushing for the match but it was Austin who didnt want it to happen.
You are dead on. I have heard this same thing stated by people who used to work there during that time.

Hogan jobbed clean to Rock and Lesnar as well as putting over HHH. He had no problem dropping matches at that point in his career. He never even demanded the win back over Rock or Lesnar. He would have put over Austin for the cash no problemo. Austin was scared to death of pro Hogan chants like in the Rock match where heel Hogan got enormous cheers over face Rock.

Re: Steve Austin Talks Hulk Hogan,Jerry Lawler Heart Attack,Cm Punk And More.

As I said in another thread, Hogan said in an interview on Hot 97 that the reason Austin/Hogan never took place was because there was "business heat". The story I've heard for years is that neither man wanted to put the other over. I remember dave 1981 saying that he read that Hogan only jobbed to Rock if he could get 1 more title reign afterwards.

Not to mention, Austin still had problem with Hogan from WCW.

What was dumb was Hogan challenging Austin in 2005, knowing damn well Austin couldn't have really worked at that time. I call it a clash of egos, same reason we never got Hogan/Bret or why Hogan/Piper never put the other over clean.

Yes it could but it'd be hideous. Both men are totally destroyed physically and neither were exactly technical wrestlers to start with.

a 60 year old with two hip surgeries and a back surgery, who spent his last 4 years crushing his starpower in a second-grade wrestling company, taking on a 50 year old with multiple neck surgeries and two fractured knees and hasn't done anything major in the last 8 years besides sporadic appearances

I smell a 5 star classic
