Why did Hogan job to The Rock, but not Austin?
 
It should've been the biggest finale to the biggest era. My understanding is that neither would do the job. But Hogan accepts doing it against The Rock, a smaller star. When I watched that PPV, it felt wrong from the minute Austin faced Hall earlier on the card. The only thing that would've compared would've been Austin/Goldberg.

I would hardly call Rocky a smaller star, sure Steve Austin was the face of the company during the attitude era, but The Rock was just as popular towards the end.

Austin was bigger than The Rock. There is no two ways around it.

Not during that time period a couple years before but not then. Not his fault, was getting injured and things like that.

Probably a similar reason to why Austin refused to job to Brock Lesnar. Or maybe Hogan just didn't respect Austin enough to do the job.

I've got a feeling it may have been a personal thing. I think Hogan and Rock legit respected eachother, don't really get that feeling with Austin.

It was probably about the Hulkster and Austin not being a fan of one another. I doubt Hogan would have been in any position to tell Vince whether he wants to do the job or not. The Rock wanted to wrestle Hogan whether he lost or won the match because he idolized Hogan as a kid growing up. I guess Austin just didn't really care to wrestle against Hogan as much as The Rock did.

It would have been great to see Stone Cold vs Hulk Hogan but at least we got to see The Rock vs Hogan which will go down as one of the most biggest WrestleMania matches of all time when you take crowd atmosphere and the build-up into account.

I think it's because hogan was just jealous of Austin, so he refused to job to him. And after all, austin didn't need hogan to job for him. he was already a legend

Everything I have read suggests Hogan was willing to job to Austin. But Steve hadn't forgotten how he was treated in WCW once Hulk and his clique arrived.

Terry Bollea put himself over despite losing. How? By going in as cool heel in the post-attitude era meant he could get more support than the babyface. Furthermore, he turned face at the end of the match.

Steve probably didn't want a part in his politics.

Because Hogan was jealous of Austin
