Re: Who's your personal favorite between Rock, Austin, and Hogan.
My favorite of the 3 is Hulk Hogan. I started watching wrestling during his era, so, he was the first of those three I followed each week. A lot of people underestimate Hogan's abilities and don't really understand that his lack of in ring abilities in the WWF was because he was forced to be limited. The worst that can happen is your biggest name gets injured.
If people watch Hogan's time in Japan, I think many will be surprised at just how much better he is than they thought. He made a huge impact on the sport, and, a solid wrestling fan will appreciate that, regardless of whether they like him or not. It's not about liking or hating, it's just about giving credit where it is due.
I enjoyed all three wrestlers, though, and they all had an impact on the sport and were some of the best characters in the business.
I think most of the answers in the thread will be based on when people started to watch wrestling and who they grew up with. A lot of members are younger and grew up in the Attitude Era, so, they unfortunately missed Hogan's time (besides Hollywood Hogan and just a bit of old school Hogan when he came back).
Ric Flair, you once called me a woman. Well, what I want to know is, how does it feel to get beat by a woman?
