There's a lot of stories out there. Although there are 2 stories that stick out the most:

1. Austin and Hogan didn't want to job to each other. They didn't like each other, couldn't decide on an ending, and they decided to go with Hogan vs. Rock.

2. Hogan vs. Rock was planned all along. The only reason Hogan decided to job to Rock was because he would get a face turn and an undisputed championship run later.

I'm inclined to believe the 2nd one. Since I'm pretty sure I've read/heard somewhere that Austin said he never got an offer to have match with Hogan until after he retired.
Not sure, but doesn't Hogan winning the Undisputed Title from HHH a month later have something to do with him putting over the rock?

Yeah, that's what I said (no malice intended BTW). Hogan agreed to put over Rock so he would get a run with the Undisputed Championship.

But as Bischoff said in his book, Hogan and Bischoff shot down an Idea that Austin, invovling Austin being a relative of Hogan or something corny as that. This was in 1994 or early 1995, Hogan did not like, and to be honest, Hogan was the biggest thing to hit WCW at the time, possible ever which is debatable, but Austin at the time, despite being possible the best worker in the company, was still a mid-card wrestler. Hogan was not supposed to get in to feud with mid carders, he was brought in to feud with the major wrestlers in the company at the time like
Flair, Vader and Sting.
I totally understand why he shot that angle down with Austin, and Austin would be stubborn foolish sob if he was still bitter about it, since he did the exact same thing to Jeff Jarrett in WWF when Austin was at his peak.

But then again I understand why Hogan shot that angle down, but heck I still would have prefered that to Dungeon Of Doom any day of the week
Hacksaw talks about it.He called Austin a baby and seeing as he was a Flair guy not a Hogan guy they clashed

At a guess, Rock is the most likable ego-less guy in the world (who happened to be loved by the higher ups none the less), while Austin at that time in the WWE was pretty much beginning a crazy downward spiral that led to him walking out for a while. I imagine Hogan got one much better with the Rock.

Honestly it was for the best because I don't think Hogan would have been able to sell a Stunner very well.

Hell no. Hogan does not fall very good, I can just imagine what that would look like.

Maybe Austin was still pissed about WCW? I mean, Hogan, who was such a prominent figure in WCW at the time of Austin's firing, comes back to the WWF and has the nerve to say "Job to me." I'd be pissed off too.

I doubt my theory is true. I don't think Hogan had anything to do with Austin getting fired anyway.

But can't that be said about nearly EVERYTHING regarding Hogan/Austin? Because there is no legitimate proof that either guy refusing to job to someone else.

I mean, we can bring up the fact that aside from his final match with Rock, Austin never lost cleanly between 1998-2003. But that doesn't mean he REFUSED to put anybody over.

Same can be said for Hogan his entire WWE career.

Only thing I know is that according to Kevin Nash, the entire plans changed for Wrestlemania 18. They were only supposed to work limited dates and he did say that Austin was going through some personal problems at the time, was injury plagued and was in the state of mind that losing to Jericho diminished his character.

So in that regard, maybe Austin was never ASKED first but due to not being healthy and his personal life, maybe WWE realized that Hogan/Rock was the best solution, while having Austin work a 7 minute match.

But in the end, it's all conspiracy theories because we shouldn't expect a guy like Austin to cut an interview and not portray himself in a positive light. It's not like he's gonna admit he was asked first but turned it down because he didn't want to lose, nor would he say that Hogan refused to him but at the same time, it doesn't make what he said anymore truthful.

I think it was always a matter of not the right time.
