Re: Why did Hogan job to The Rock, but not Austin?
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.
