you have to understand that there is a reason why Hogan is tatooed in our hearts and minds.. and more importantly, why Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock are unequaled to us fans..
Hogan WAS the WWF brand.. and then he did the near impossible by ushering in a 2nd Wrestling Boom to the point that the company he carried almost went out of business!
.. that was until Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock captured everyone's hearts and imaginations
these 2 icons didn't wrestle in the WWF when it was cool or when it was the only game in town.. no no no no NO
SCSA and The Rock wrestled in a time that nobody even wanted to be in the WWF and not only flourished but because of their personalities and charismas resurrected a company on its deathbed to heights it has never even imagined
The Attitude Era is what made it possible for Vince McMahon to go public.. it turned the shady wrestling business from what it was into a BILLION DOLLAR BRAND! All because of the appeal and power of Austin and Rock..
there's also a reason everything has gone downhill since then and Cena, CM Punk, etc cannot even touch their popularities..
Hogan. Austin. Rock.. truly, admittedly, arguably.. no one will ever be bigger
the WWE will grow.. in fact I've gone on record saying that the past few years culminating with The Rock's last hurrah which we are all witnessing now is all set up for the eventual launch of the WWEN aka the WWE Network which will become VKM's biggest cashflow and ultimate legacy
