If WM18 was held in US,what difference would it have had on Rock/Hogan crowd reaction?
Say if it was held in cities like Detroit City,Oklahoma,Chicago,Washington DC,Manchester etc. which has more Rock fans,would the crowd reaction been different?Would people have cheered Rock and booed Hogan?
People were booing Hogan and cheering Rock during the build up to WM 18.People say that WM 18 being in Canada made the difference as Hogan is more adored in Canada than USA.He has a history of performing talk shows,doing radio interviews and charity stuff there.
Some people also say that the crowd at WM 18 answered the question of who will go down in the history as the greatest and rightfully they put Hogan over Rock.Rock/Hogan at WM 18 itself was booked to be the match that would determine who will go down in the history as the greatest.
Say if it hadn't been in Canada but United States and say if Hogan would've been booed or Rock would've been more cheered than Hogan,would people have put Rock over Hogan?I still think to this day that if face Rock vs face Hogan had happened in USA,both would have been equally cheered and respected by the crowd.
Some people also say that Rock left for Hollywood because he got booed at WM 18,he thought people had turned their back on him after doing so much for the company,would've Rock left for Hollywood if he hadn't been booed?And if Rock wouldn't have left for Hollywood,people wouldn't have turned on him at Summerslam 2002 thus he wouldn't have turned heel and we wouldn't have seen his Hollywood persona which in my opinion is one of the greatest heel gimmicks.
Just like Montreal Screw Job,WM 18 had a huge impact on the WWE,some positive,some negative.
