It was a defining moment for WWE at that time, so who were you rooting for? And what would you have done differently about the match?
Back when Rocky was my idol (I was 11 going on 12) haha. Tbh, I think the match was done pretty perfectly, and the build-up was awesome too. I wouldn't change a thing, and that just goes to show how I feel the product has fallen from grace. Rock vs Hogan at WM18 is one of the few stories that were done pristinely from beginning to end imo.It was a defining moment for WWE at that time, so who were you rooting for?

It was Jericho/HHH, which to be completely honest, wasn't even a great main event.it was the perfect ending, the handshake offering totally sealed it, i feel SOOOOOOOOOOOOO bad though cause the main event was AFTER that match which ofcourse didnt live up even close to the atmosphere that was Rock/Hogan, gotta feel guilty for those who were maineventing that one, i dont even remember who it was too lmao
The hate between Rock & Hogan was always supposed to be there. It didnt really start off one way and then they just switched over.I was rooting for... ummm... I dunno, probably Hogan. Don't like either man, but my Rock hate was likely at an all time high from 2000-2002 lol.
As for what I would change... nothing really. The match itself was working perfectly and the story... well the build up imo wasn't that good; they started it off as a big "Icon Vs Icon" match or something, then tried to force the HATE~! with Hogan trying to murder Rock with a truck or something and it was just blargh.
Thought Undertaker Vs Flair was the better match with a MUCH better build up anyway, and to ME personally was a far bigger match with Flair being the greatest ever imo and Undertaker being such a huge star for almost 12 years at this point.
Couldn't be more wrong. I caught bits of WCW before it's ridiculous demise and hated Hogan. Then after a couple yrs we got sky and I watched WWE (just after WM17) and Rock blew my mind. I wanted to BE this guy!!! And I was 11 when the NWO feud came about.lol @ people voting The Rock. You guys are lying out your teeth. Most of y'all were rooting for Hogan because of the nostalgia factor. But now you wanna say Rock because Hogan's one of the most hated guys here. This is coming from the biggest Rock stan.
