Re: Why did Hogan job to The Rock, but not Austin?
Im dead tired of Stone Cold fans making up lies to discredit Rock. Its an unarguable fact that Rock was always the first choice to face Hulk at Mania x8, Austin himself has said many times over the years he was only offered Hulk after he retied then turned it down. There is literally no evidence in the slightest that Austin was ever asked or even thought of to face Hulk besides Austin fans making it up and going on edited sites like Wiki and Bleachreport to spread there lies.
Austin fans cant accept his time as top man had long passed and Rock was clearly the guy Vince was pushing as the greatest at the time. Vince further proved he thought Rock was ahead of Austin when he personally picked Rock over Steve to be the 1st ever draft pick while Steve walked out because he didnt like the idea of being the second pick behind Rock. Vince took it a step further to prove he thought Rock was better when he wanted him to pass the torch to Lesnar while Steve was asked to job clean on Raw, which btw Hulk jobbed clean on Raw like 5 times in 2002.
It wasnt until Rocky left for Hollywood in 2003 that Vince did everything in his power to belittle Rocks career and pushed Austin over him and try to rewrite history like he always does.
