Re: Five Most Over World Champions In History
1) Hulk Hogan
2) Steve Austin
3) Ric Flair
4) The Rock
John Cena has been over for a good amount of his career as champ, but I can't say he reached the height of Goldberg, despite Goldy's short reigns with a championship belt. I would go as far as saying that Goldberg hit Hogan and Austin levels the night he beat Hulk in Atlanta, but part of that was due to Hogan's heel run.
As far as Hogan topping Austin goes...I can't turn my cheek at the support Hogan had as a heel champion. The "Real American" Hogan will always be the most-over in wrestling history, especially to the kids and during the war, but what put him over Stone Cold was the fact that fans were, at one point, showing support for the NWO Hogan...where it actually ended up ruining the effectiveness of the NWO as heels, in a way.
